THE CAS S LAK E
PINE SAL E Prospects For a Large At tendance at Second Sale Next Monday. LARGE TRACT OF BEST PINE TIMBER WILL GO. Favorable Location Is Expected to Get Out Big Crowd of Buyers From A Over Country. M. D. Mclnery, special agent of the interior department located in Crookston, yesterday received telegraphic instructions to pro ceed to Cass Lake and be present on the 28th when the second large sale of government timber is to be sold. The sale will exceed in interest that held earlier in the month, as the pine lies in a more compact body, and nearer the railways, making it more accessible to market. The bids are expected to run as high as those submit ted at that time, and those were the largest ever made for stand ing pine. The tract is on the east and south side of Cass Lake, and a strip five miles wide and twenty miles long contains the best body of standing pine now extant in northernMinnesota. Theforestry reserve corps, under the direc tion of Chief Forester Bruce of the department of agriculture, has been over the tract and haspork marked the trees that are to be left's^anding. This includes five per cent of the amount and all trees so marked are under ten inches in diameter. Judge J. I. Parker, chief of the division of public lands and rail-, roads, and Geo. F. Pollock, chief of the special service of the pub lic land office, will come out to attend the salewith Mr. McEniry and it is also expected that Land Commissioner Richards or his assistant, Mr. Pimple, will come out from Washington to be pres ent. Owing to the favorable location of the Pine it is expected that the Minneapolis pine buyers will be present and bid upon the tim ber, although they were not prominent among those who submitted bids earlier in the month.
