DWINDLING OF FUND SHOWN
Overstepping Bounds for "Miscella
neous" Items Is Attributed to"
Large Force Making Valua
tion of Telephone Property.
OLYMPIA, Wash., July 22. (Special.)
Members of the Public Service Com
mission have Deen called to account
by Governor Lister for expenditures
from their "miscelloneous" fund, dur
ing the first three months of this
blennium, which, if continued, would
have practically exhausted this fund
by the end of the present calendar
Of $172,875 appropriated by the re
cent Legislature for the Public Service
Commission, exclusive of the grain de
partment, $92,875 is set aside for spe
cific purposes. Including the salaries
of the three members of the Commis
sion and ao officers. .
The remaining- $80,000, in Jhe lan
guage of the apropriation, is set aside
for "salaries of stenographers, clerk
hire and .accountants, assistants, wit
ness fees, assistant engineers, trav
eling expenses, experts, furniture, sta
tionery postage, office supplies and
Early Depletion ' Pointed Oat.
While expenditures from the specific
funds for which 92,875 is appropriated
do not exceed the monthly allowance,
expenditures from the 180,000 "miscel
laneous" fund during the months of
April, May and June amounted to t25,
515.35. Governor Lister, who requires
monthly reports from all departments
under him as to expenditures from each
fund, on July 9 wrote separate letters
to the three Commissioners, which,
while courteously framed, were in the
nature of reprimands.
The executive pointed out that if ex
penditures were continued for the next
21 months at the same rate, it would
require more than $200,000 instead of
$80,000 for the blennium, and also that
continued expenditures at the same
rate would mean the depletion of this
fund soon after January 1.
The Governor requested the Commis
sion to adopt a specific budget for
the remainder of the blennium and to
furnish him with duplicate vouchers
covering all expenditures under the
fund to date.
Telephone Valuation Heavy Draw.
The larger part of the $25,515.35 ex
pended thus far from the miscellaneous
fund appears to have been used under
the Immediate direction of Chairman C.
A. Reynolds at the Seattle offices of
the Commission, where an unusually
large engineering force has been en
gaged in the completion of the valua
tion of the Bell telephone properties
in the entire state.
As soon as the valuation work is
completed, the Commission announces
that the Seattle office will be discon
tinued, and that the chairman will
make his permanent office at Olympia.
The fact that Chairman Reynolds
passed much of his time in Seattle,
his home, and reported friction with
the other members of the Commis
sion, Arthur A. Lewis and Frank R.
Spinning, together with the reputed
hostility of the chairman" against pub
lic service corporations, were taken as
grounds, at the recent session of the
Legislature, for opposition to his con
firmation by the Senate.
Retrenchment Move Announced.
After the nomination of Mr. Reynolds
had remained a few weeks in "cold
etorage" in the rules committee, how
ever, he was confirmed with compara
tively few votes in opposition.
Chairman Reynolds was credited,
Boon after receiving his appointment,
with a desire to move the main offices
of the Commission to Seattle. Gov
ernor Lister took a flat stand against
this plan, while Reynolds later stated
that he had meant no more than the
opening of permanent Seattle offices,
and had not intended the closing of
the Olympia offices, which would have
It had also been reported, since ad
journment of the Legislature, that the
chairman would seek to prevent the
reappointment of Commissioner Lewis
Mr. Lewis was reappointed last month
-for a six-year term, and also was
designated by Governor Lister as his
representative on the State Board of
Members of the Commission declare
that prior to the receipt of the Gov
ernor's letter they had started re
trenchment in the miscellaneous fund.

TRADE PROBLEMS SERIOUS
Country Seems Glutted With, Lum
ber, While at Same Time 45,000
Sawmills Show Xo Permanent
Sign of Weakening.
OREGOKIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, July 22. By co-operation, the
Federal Trade Commission, the Forest
Service and the Bureau of Foreign and
Domestic Commerce hope to evolve
some plan by which the Federal Gov
ernment can aid in restoring normal
conditions in the lumber industry.
This plan of co-operation was agreed
on after the National Association of
Lumber Manufacturers at San Fran
cisco had appointed a committee to
advise the Trade Commission of the
present condition of the American
lumber industry. The Forest Service
already was at work on various lumbei
problems; the Trade Commission has
taken up for consideration the request
of many lumber manufacturers that a
limited form of combination for en
gaging in export trade be permitted,
and the Bureau of Foreign and Do
mestic Trade has started inquiries with
a view to aiding in developing foreign
markets, particularly in South America
and the Orient.
Waste la Pointed Out.
The .Forest Service started a com
prehensive investigation 10 months age
to ascertain how the timber supply of
the country is being utilized and
whether normal conditions exist in the
forest-using industries. The Forest
Service has advised the Trade Commis
sion that although logging and forest
fires are reducing the timber supply
by 80 or more billion feet a year, much
low-grade timber is not marketable.
From a quarter to a third of the mate
rial grown in the forests is said to be
wasted in manufacture. From the lum
berman's viewpoint, says the Forest
Service, the country seems to be
glutted with lumber; but while some
manufacturers have reduced their out
put for the time being, there is no
prospect of any permanent weakening
In the attack of the 45.000 sawmills
upon the remaining forests.
The necessity for realizing on In
vestments in timber, together with
other causes, has led apparently to the
construction of sawmills with an out
put greatly in excess of the demand.
, Retail Prices Advanced.
"At the same time," says the Trade
Commission, -many believe that lumber
costs too much. Retail prices have
gone up in the last two decades, due
in part to the fact that the supplies of
lumber nearest to the thickly popu
lated states have been reduced. There
has also been much speculation in
standing timber, which" has tended to
enhance timber values and to increase
the prices demanded by lumber mills.
The development of associations of
lumber manufacturers and distributors
has occasioned more or less belief that
prices were being increased artificially.
"The part played by the Forest Serv
ice in the inquiry begun last year deals
with the ownership of standing timber,
the waste in its utilization, and the
factors controlling the production and
distribution of lumber."
Foreign Markets Studied.
"The Bureau of Foreign and ' Do
mestic Commerce, with its large facili
ties for the study of trade opportuni
ties. Is conducting an investigation ot
foreign markets, particularly in South
America and the Orient, with a view to
expanding the export trade in Amer
In announcing Its co-operation in
this inquiry the Federal Trade Com
mission has issued a statement saying:
"The purpose of the three Federal
agencies in conducting this study is to
make it constructive and helpful. The
Government's point of view In ap
proaching the problems concerned is
directed toward the welfare of the
country at large, but it is hoped that
the inquiry will be of benefit to all
branches of the lumber industry as
well as to the consumers.
"Conditions in the lumber trade have
changed, due in part to the widespread
use of other structural materials than
wood. Lumbermen are confronted with
many problems, often not fully under
stood by them and seldom appreciated
by the public Much can be accom
plished by ascertaining the facts."
