Defiance Weekly Express (Newspaper) - April 2, 1903, Defiance, Ohio Defiance is Acito of the second Grade-population->10,000. Growing rapidly situated at the Confluence of the a Glaize and Maumee heart of the great Maumee Valley vol. , Ohio. Thursday april 2, 1903. No. 17 Leher from the red Wood country or Phillips writes of life in California lumber District. Correspondence to daily express Elk cal., March 20�?1 Ani located at present about Ito Miles North of san Francisco in men Racine county. I Ain about grows Timber. Most of the Timber Here on very Steep Mountain sides and Iii deep mulches where one would think that it would be almost impossible to get it out. But they twelve Miles from the coast in get it quite easily. They use the Redwood country. Perhaps a Short letter from Here would interest your readers. I have been Here about six weeks. There have been a Good Many cold Donkey engines and cables the same As they do Iii Washington arid Oregon and besides they have what is called a a a Hying machine which is operated by steel cables and two Donkey engines. Frosty mornings and the ground it will take was slightly Frozen several times Mountain Side but it has generally been warm through the Day and roses and Many other Flowers have been Blooming out of doors since i have been Here. The country is mountainous but there is a Good Deal of very Rich level land along tile coast. Oats Barley and potatoes or a a spuds As they Are often called Here Are the principal crops raised. I am told that the two former generally yield from 80 to too bushels per acre and the latter about 250 bushels. The ranchers Are devoted mostly to Dairying and Stock raising and the latter is said to be very profitable. There Are Many ranches up on Steep mountains when1 it seems that it would be very Dilli cult to get to them. There Are Many hundreds of thousands of acres of Timber in the mountains mostly Redwood Pine and Tan Oak but there is More Redwood than other kind. The Oak is Small and is valuable for its bark it which is used for tanning leather. They make no use of the bodies of the Trees excepting that they sometimes them into Wood. There is a company operating Here which has i am told not less than sixty thousand acres of land. It has a Large saw Mill and a great Many tie Camps. They have 15 Miles of Railroad and Are building live Miles More at an estimate Cost of $50,o to. The company employs More than 600 men. There Are about 130 men in one of their Camps and four chinamen do All the cooking and Dis washing for them. Nearly All the Cooks in the hotels and Camps in this part of the country Are chinamen and of course there Are Good bad and indifferent ones among them. It is surprising to an Eastern Man to see How wasteful they Are in their methods of logging in All this coast country. I used to he under the impression that Redwood was too valuable to he used for Ordinary purposes but they use it Here for most All purposes and so far As i know they do not use any other Timber for Railroad ties and there is a great waste in making ties of it. But they Are i think More durable for that purpose than any other logs off of. The or out of a deep Gulch and Load them on the cars. It is quite ail interesting fight to see it at work. It looks Odd to see a big log dangling from a Cable 75 or too feet from the ground. There Are. Men at work Here from almost All parts of the world and nearly every nation excepting a Carrie a is represented. The logging companies Here Are quite l Iberal. They pay Good wages and they give their men plenty of time to do a Days work. They do not expect a Man to do a Days work in eight hours. The wages paid for some of the different kinds of labor Are Section men $35 per month Railroad graders $30 to $35 Sawyer $10 Jack screw men. $45 axe men $40 to $45 Timber fallers $50 Timber Hewer $60. There is Only one Hewer at work in this Camp. The Tan bark season will open about the Middle of May or the first of june and they paid last season i Ain told from $45 to $50. In All the above Board is included and this Camp has very Good Board. Ranch hands get $30 a month. Teachers in county schools receive from $50 to $75 per month. It. W. Philips.
