Interest locally has been focused in late months upon
the efforts of the lumbermen of the Pacific Northwest to
escape from the web of red tape spread around them by
the federal government.
They have vigorously disclaimed any effort to train a
subsidy, although it has been proposed to relieve them!fnd'n Christmas cards with

That, I believe, would be only a minor blow to taxpay
ers in comparison with what would follow.
For example, a direct subsidy to maritime workers
would permit coastal mills to ship at a much lower rate
than they now pay. At present they can ship lumber
as cheaply by rail as by water. Lmon demands have i mumps at once. "Grandpa Drex

As everyone in Washington, Ore

United States. Canadian mills can
reach these attractive markets at
a transportation cost that runs

than the freight cost from A men

The answer is quite simple. It
is to be found in what is known as
the Jones Act, which restricts U.S.
