KLAMATH FALLS, Or., April 13. — (Special.) — Marion F. Loosley, a pioneer of the Wood River Valley at the north end of Upper Klamath Lake, has just closed a deal with M.L. Erickson, supervisor of the Crater National Forest, for the purchase of 30,000,000 feet of fine timber on that forest reserve. The land lies on Seven-Mile Creek and embraces 2500 acres heavily timbered with yellow and sugar pine, Douglas and white fir. The price paid for the timber is: Yellow and sugar pine, $3.25 per thousand; Douglas fir, $2.25, and white fir, $1.35. Mr. Loosley was formerly in the sawmill business on a small scale in the Wood River Valley, but for several years devoted his attention to cattle raising. It is understood that he has ordered machinery to establish a mill on Seven-Mile Creek to cut up the timber he has purchased. The mill is to be within a short distance of the edge of the lake, where water transportation can be had near the Oregon Trunk road, which is surveyed through from Medford to tap the big timber belt north of here.

Beaumont Capitalist Has Acquired Considerable Property In Port Arthur
Port Arthur, Tex., Aug. 19.—Captain Tyrrell of Beaumont was in the city Wednesday and made a purchase of another lot adjoining the two lots on which he intended building a vaudeville theater. This gives him seventy-five feet frontage and he will erect a two-story brick 75×140 feet. The lower story will be used for business and an up-to-date vaudeville theater and pool room. Captain Tyrrell owns much valuable property in this city and it is all a paying asset, getting good rentals from his buildings. Last week he purchased the J.F. Winn home as a home for some of his family. Captain Tyrrell has plans for other buildings to go up in the near future, one of which is a large three-story rooming house constructed on up-to-date plans. This is a much-needed acquisition and will lead to building others.

The Rapid Transit Steamboat Co., of Rainier, with a capital stock of $40,000—800 shares of the par value of $50 each—has been organized with W.E. Newsom, W.S. Buchanan and W.C. Fisher, incorporators. The object of the corporation is to do a general steamboat business on the Columbia river and its tributaries. One or more fast boats will be built in time for the 1905 fair traffic. Captain Newsom built the Iralda, and gave the people a taste of better service and cheaper fare, which culminated in a general rate war that was only settled by the opposition buying his boat outright. The first boat to be constructed by this company will be built at Rainier within the next six months. It will be built specially for burning oil. (St. Helens Mist, September 12, 1902)
