Big Body of Timber Secured Near Elgin and Eig Plant Will be Moved This Fall. W. H. Fletcher, who has operated a sawmill in Umatilla county, in the vicinity of Weston Mountain, for 15 years, has recently purchased a large body of timber land, consisting of 940 acres, on the main road leading from W'eston to Elgin, and will move his mill from the present site at Cold Springs to this new location, six miles distant, says the East Orego nian. A new water power plant will be installed for the purpose of running the electric light plant for the works, but the sawmill will be operated by steam. The capacity of the mil] will be about 20,000 feet per day, and the box factory, which forms one of the main features of the mill wil have a capacity of 5000 boxes a day. The box factory is operated alto gether on the night shift, and sup plies all the surrounding fruit districts. The timber used in the construction of fruit boxes is princi pally white fir and spruce, which is very light and flexible, and makes a fine quality of box. The Fletcher mill has been operat ed in the site just vacated, about six years, and was driven to seek a new location by the formation of the for est reserve. The land just acquired is covered with a growth of good tim ber of all varieties, and will last for five or six years, if the capacity of the mill is not increased. TESTIMONY ALL IN. San Francisco.
