The shortage of cars is havin

In some cases mill owners have
refused to accept more orders than
they now have on their books be
cause of difficulty in filling the
orders. Reports are that some mills
are two months behind in shipping
orders. In the east, where the build
ing season is not as prolonged as in
the west, because of weather condi
tlons, this delay in deliveries is caus
ing retailers and wholesalers a great
deal of anxiety. They are. in some
instances, unable to supply their
customers with the materials that
.Strikes Partly Blamed.
This condition as regards ears can
largely be attributed to the strikes
that have beer, started by the shop
men and other railroad employes.
In the east more difficulty is being
experienced by the railroads in get

Derienced employes than in the
It Is exceedingly difficult to ob
tain sufficient flat cars to meet tne
needs of the lumbermen. Box cars
are more' numerous, but involve
Kreater cost in loading and are
therefore less acceptable.
The fact that the harvesting o
crops is at its height and is requir
ing a large amount of railroad
equipment also is having its effect.
Hundreds of cars that might other
wise be available for the lumbermen
are now going to the wheat-shipping
' All Grades la Demand.
Orders for all grades of lumber
continue to come into the offices of
the manufacturers of the northwest.
They are arriving from all parts of
the United States. A portion of
these orders is being rejected be
cause the manufacturers already
have more business than they can
handle under present conditions.
. The demand for the upper grades
of lumber is particularly keen and
has caused a strengthening of the
market. While there is a big de
mand for upper grades, the com
mon stocks have piled up in the
yards and are awaiting customers.
The log shortage, brought about
by the forest fires, has been respon
sible for cutting down the supply of
upper grades and the consequent in
crease in lower grades. Due to the
low supply of logs in storage ponds,
timbers that ordinarily would not
be cut have been run through the
mills. These have turned out a big
amount of common material and also
short dimensions that do not find
a ready market at this time.
The forest fire situation has ad
justed itself to the satisfaction of i
the loggers and lumbermen, due
to weather conditions. Gangs that
had been fighting fire instead of
getting out logs have returned to
ttieir tasks in the woods and are
being pushed hard to catch, up with
the demands for logs.
xport Lumber In Demand.
Th demand tar export lumber for
J&ftaM mad oier countries is in
creasing slowly. It would appear
that the Japanese, after a long
period of inactivity, which caused
the wholesalers much anxiety, have
come back into the market for
Orders are continually being
taken by wholesalers for delivery
to Australia, New Zealand, the west
coast of South America and to
The middle west, which for a
long time has been practically out
of the market, due to agricultural
conditions, has started to buy in
earnest. Tlhis is due to the 'fact
that crops are being harvested and
that the farmers are obtaining
money with which to make long
delayed improvements. This de
mand will grow stronger unless
prices reach a point where the
larmer cannot afford to buy.
,1 Homes Are Beirut Built.
Industrial centers continue to call
Jor large volumes of lumber, which
is not only" going into manufactur
ing plants, but Into homes for em
ployes. During the first part of the cur
rent year the lumber industry in the
northwest was not in a flourishing
condition. The market was slow
and many mills were closed. After
a time these conditions improved
and were it not for car shortages
and other unavoidable conditions
every mill in the entire northwest
areas would be turning out lumber
to capacity. So far this year more
lumber has been produced in the
northwest than during the entire
period of 1921. With more than four
months to go it is safe to predict
more lumber will be manufactured
in the northwest in 1922 than in any
previous year, if conditions do not

GOLDBNDALE, Wash., Aug. 20.
(Special.) The secret of the loca
tion of the Lost Spaniard mine for
which search has been conducted by
Klickitat people was foffered for
saie this week at Goldcndale by
Charles Wannassie, aborigine from
Toppenish, Wash. The mine Is sup
posed to be located in the heart of
the Cascade mountains at the head
of the Lewis river in the- wild, al
most Inaccessible territory between
Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens.
It is supposed to have been discov
ered by a Spaniard about the time
that the Klickitat valley was first
settled by homesteaders. Many old
timers say they have seen and con
versed with the Spaniard who used
to come through the valley, on h's
way to The Dalies with a string of
pack mules loaded with virgin gold.
Many unsuccessful efforts were
made to discover tire source of his
go'd supply. The Spaniard who dis
appeared many years ago was
thought to have been massacred by
Indians who also knew of the min
It is a fact that during the early
settlement of the central Washing
ton country virgin gold was brought
into the stores at Goldendale. Yaki
ma and Ellensburg by Indians and
exchanged for provisions and cloth
ing but none of the Indians ever
were induced to disclose the source
Wannassio is not a Yakima Indian
but claims to have learned the
secret from a very old member of
the tribe just prior to his departure
to the Happy Hunting Ground not
long ago., Wannassie is an educated
Indian and attended school in Illi
nois. He is about 60 years old: and
drives a big automobile. He says
he owns valuable reservation land
near Toppenish. His etory does not
diifer from legends concerning the
mine, except that he says the gold
will be. found in decomposed
porphyry, a rock that crumbles
easily and will permit of complete
separation of. the gold without much
effort- He offers to pilot to the
mine anybody who will put up a
cash deposit on a basis of "no mine,
In addition to the construction of
the south half of the , 250-foot dock
which has just been, completed by
the Willamette Iron & Steel works
at Its plant on the lower west side
to facilitate tine direct transfer of
raw materials from steamers to its
plant, officials of that concern an
nounced yesterday that they have
under way an extension of the main
boiler shop, which will greatly in
crease the output of that depart
ment. The new dock has also just been
fitted with an, additional 15-ton
crane, making in all tlhree .dock
cranes for handling cargo. These
Include a shear legs crane of 75-ton
capacity and a 20-ton locomotive
crane, besides a lo-ton derrick
Trnekajie Also Installed.
P-.ilway trackage connecting the
dock with the tracks of the termina
company has also been installed
The increasing amount of steel and
other supplies cmonig to the plant
by water necessitated the comple
tion of the dock, it was declared.
The extension to the main boiler
shop, construction on which is now
under way, will give an additional
50 feet by 100 feet to the . boiler
shop. This addition will make, the
bay of the boiler shop 100 feet wide
and more than 500 feet long.
It-was announced that the exten
sion was made necessary because of
Increased volume in the business of
the Willamette Iron & Steel com
pany. The new space will be used
part for additional automatic
plate fabricating machinery, which
win be installed this fall.
Extension Costs $14,000. -
The plate and boiler shops of the
company are now occupied with
plate work for public utilities and
municipalities of the northwest, ac
cording to officials. This includes
work for the Washington Water
Power company of Spokane, the Pa
cific Power & Light company, the
Northwestern Electric company and
the Portland , Railway, Light &
Power company of this city.
The extension to the dock, it was
announced yesterday by E. C. Pape,
vice-president of the company, cost
about $14,000 and the extension to
the boiler shop will cost about $60,
000. The boiler shop, Mr. Pape said,
will be eauinoed with the latest tvDe
of machinery for the handling of
iron and steel work. He estimated
that the work would be completed
In about six weeks.

OLYMPIA. Wash., Aug. 20. (Spe
cial.) Marriages performed in the
state of Washington between July 1,
1921, and January I, 1922, totaled
less than four times the number of
divorces granted in the same period,
according to records gathered from
every county in the state and com
piled into a condensed statement by
J. S. Mcintosh, deputy commissioner
of the bureau of statistics and im
migration in the office of J. Grant
Hinkle, secretary of state.
There were 16,708 marriages per
formed In the six months and 4439
divorces granted by the state courts
in the same period. King county
led the procession of counties both
in marriages and divorces and had
a much greater percentage of the
latter than any other county in the
state, having practically one divorce
for every two marriages. Pierce
county showed a comparatively
high marriage record, but a low di
vorce record. Clarke county, with
Vancouver as the "Gretna Green"
for Portland, ranked second only to
King county in the number of mar
riages, but the divorce record was
extremely low. The figures quoted
do not include 170 interlocutory- de

Railroad Shop Situation Remains
Quiet, With Employes Adapt
ing AVaiting Attitude.
Trial of the 14 raUroad shop work
efs facing charges of contempt will
be resumed in federal court before
Judge Wolverton at 10 o'clock this
morning and is expected to be con
cluded before the end of the week.
Thus far the defense has presented
testimony bearing on movementsand
activities of three of the accused
men on the afternoon of August 1,
when -the injunction order of the
court is alleged to have been vio
lated. This testimony has all been
in the nature of alibis for Defend
ants James E.- Getty, Conrad Brill
and Errill C. Gesca.
Public interest in the trial lagged
the latter part of last week, but
may increase as the defense takes
up the burden of atterrrpting to clear
gome of the remaining defendants.
With respect to some of these, how
ever, identification by agents and
employes of the O.-W. R. & N. rail
road may not prove sufficient. In
certain cases identification rests en
tirely upon testimony of W. R. Ladd,
superintendent of the Albina shops.
The strike situation in Portland
territory remains quiescent. The
striking employes have adopted a
waiting attitude, seemingly content
to be governed by decisions and ef
forts of their leaders in the east.
Meanwhile the railroad officials
maintain that their working forces
are amply sufficient to take care, of
all requirements. A shortage of cars
for loading, temporarily threatened,
seems to have been overcome. Suc
cess of the roads in this matter is
something of a reverse for the
strikers, who have held secret hopes
that lack of irst-class equipment
and motive power might force the
railroads to terms. -
