Perry Creek News: 0051.0247

Old Town, April 22 -

            Plans for opening up the logging and lumbering enterprise on Perry creek are making good progress.  Mr. Stilles and Mr. Brackett have been on the ground for some time laying out the work and formulating plans for operations.

            The mill will be built on the flat near the north end of the St. Mary’s bridge.  A bridge will be put across the St. Mary’s near the mouth of Perry creek.  A spur will be put in from a point on the North Star branch to the mill.  From here a road will be constructed up Perry Creek to Old Town.

            Some delay was caused by the C.P.R. but a conference between Mr. Staples and the C.P.R. officials has cleared up the difficulty and the work of construction will begin shortly.  The company has 12,000 acres of timber and will put in a plant of 75,000 feet daily capacity.
