CHAS. GOODNOUGH, PRESIDENT. J. M. CHURCH. VICE PRESIDENT. C. B. KEISER. SECRETARY. OFFICE OF ISLAND CITY MERCANTILE & MILLING CO. PROPRIETORS OF THE ISLAND CITY ROLLER MILLS. Hilgard, Or. Mrch 16 1892 D. Eccles Esq Dear Bro. I went to Pleasant Valley and think from this on we will not have much course to complain against the Inspector there. I found Cassiday Bros were fencing our road out around the point of the mountain near the timber line at Pleasant Valley, so I stopped off at Baker and took immediate steps to get a county road there. Foster the surveyor will send up the petition & notice for Curver to get signatures to. The court meets early in May & the petition has to be posted on the Court House, and 3 notices along the road for at least 30 days. So I had to take hold of it at once or miss the May term of Court & then it would go over for 2 months more. We have too much property up there to leave it any longer liable to be fenced up at the whim or Caprice of those ranchers and they are all willing to sign just now except the Cassidy boys. So we will try & get it fixed once for all. I came on here yesterday & saw Atherton this morning. Don’t know as I can do much with him altho I think he will write to his brother. I will go on to Hood River this morning’s train. Atherton will take up these madd in ties and those at Meacham as soon as possible. I wrote Frank short that we would take all he could get off the land there & pay 28¢ on cars. CHAS. GOODNOUGH, PRESIDENT. J. M. CHURCH. VICE PRESIDENT. C. B. KEISER. SECRETARY. OFFICE OF ISLAND CITY MERCANTILE & MILLING CO. PROPRIETORS OF THE ISLAND CITY ROLLER MILLS. Hilgard, Or…….189… =3= will try & see him as I come back. Want to be at North Point on Saturday to see Gorham about Grist Mill. Russell tells me he has not shopped mills yet & that they have very little dry lumber, but steel has nearly 3 million ft. dry, most of which is 16 ft. Russell says the Ainslic Co has not bought stock in his Co. but Jones and another man bot. some of the flume & Mill Co. stock. Stoddards are selling some boards to Ainslic. Think I will see Jones in Portland & try to get him to make us an offer on all of our Pleasant Valley stock. If we could even get $10.00 & then do the loading & shipping I would be in favor of letting all go if cash was secure. Jones may be in Salt Lake – so Russell says – you might try to see him. If we got rid of that lot then prices might drop if they want to. I wish you would get that bond matter fixed up before you come out – it has hung fire long enough. I did expect once that I would get about 10 of those bonds for myself, but if the Co will note me 5 (for myself) I would be satisfied. If they are not willing to do that I want to know it at once. Write to Nor. Powder Yours C. W. Nibley
