Articles of incorporation for another large lumber company for which Tacoma will be the headquarters were filed with the county auditor here this week. This is the Salsich Lumber Company, the capital stock of which is $260,000. The incorporators are H.E. Salsich, of Hareland, Wis.; J.T. Gregory, of Tacoma; F. M. Barkwell, of Seattle; Charles Law, jr., of Star Lake, Wis.; Adam G. Cook, of Albuquerque, N. M. The purposes for which the company is incorporated cover a wide range, including lumbering, mercantile business, commercial commission, manufacturing, trading, transportation, water, lighting, power, storage and investment. Mr.Gregory, whose home is in Ashland, Wis., has been in Tacoma for months representing the Vilas interests and has made extensive purchase of timber in this state on behalf of his principals. This month 1,300 acres of valuable land in Pierce and Thurston counties, through which the Nisqually river runs,was bought from Fred W. Carlyon by Mr. Salsich. Valuable water rights are included in the purchase. Whether the new company intends building a mill or not is unknown at this time, although that is said to be its purpose.
