CLOSING IS THREATENED r CD - I J THE MORNING OEEGONIAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1922 Style L he Tn ortfa Large Plants in Centers Reported to Be Getting All of Space Requirements. Lumber ' manufacturers whose plants are located on branch lines away from the thickly populated centers are having the moat serious problem of years in receiving cars with which to make shipments to fill orders from all parts of the country. Several manufacturers have been for the last month unable to obtain, more than 15 per cent- of their normal car requirements. "There is no complaint from the manufacturers in the city because they are getting all their require ments," declared one manufacture yesterday. "But those of us who are served by one railroad and are removed from the larger centers are in a serious position. Unless con ditions are righted and righted soon some of us will be forced to close down our plants and when they will open again will be up to the rail road companies. Small Mill Hit. "Were it possible for us to ob tain cars we would be enjoying the most prosperous lumber condition the northwest has ever known. "Cars come into large cities such as Portland and are sent immedi ately to the large mills there. None of the local mills are complaining, for all have been able to obtain car requirements." In my mind the small manufacturing towns, sup ported by mills, are important in no less measure than their larger neighbors. They are all bringing thousands of dollars into this sec tion and are providing large pay rolls. "In 1920 the car situation became serious. I was a tile to obtain ovef a six months' period what I re quired for one month. In August the interstate commerce commission granted a 33 1-3 per cent advance In freight rates and the car shortage ended. But before it ended the lumber demands became so few and far between that many mills closed down. Railroads' Co-Operation Wanted. "Now that we are getting back on our feet and are enjoying a busi ness that 4s bringing prosperity to the northwest we should have the entire co-operation of all of the railroads. The shutting down of any number of small mills will have a detrimental effect upon the financial condition of the country. ' "It is .not alone the lumber indus try that Is suffering from a car shortage. The manufacturers who have plants of any description in the smaller towns are having their troubles. "It is time for the railroads to get busy and get cars into the towns located on branch lines." What this manufacturer has said is practically the same as that of a dozen other lumbermen who have been confronted with car shortages -for weeks. NEW CANDIDATES . FILE INDUSTRIAL LABOR PARTY SUBMITS 4 NAMES. Gus E. Erlcksen to Oppose Mr. lierrigan for Public Service Commission TJiis Fall. SALEM, Or., Sept. 13. (Special.) The industrial labor party of Portland submitted four independ ortt CUlngs to the secretary of state. They lnclud4 F. T. Johns for rep resentative i congress from the third congres .onal district; Anders D. Berglund. A. A. Hoglund and J. R. Nasholm for representatives in the state legislature from the eighth representative district. Three Independent candidates, in dorsed at an assembly of the Ore gon Educational league, also filed yesterday. They are Gus E. Erlck sen of 928 East Seventh street, Portland, for public service com missioner from the state at large; B. H. Hansen of Portland for labor commissioner, and Sidney S. George of Eugene for state superintendent of public instruction. Mr. Erjcksen, who will oppose T. M. Kerrigan and Thomas B. Camp bell, in a written statement Issued nere today, said: ine position of public service commissioner appears to be above Mr. Kerrigan's mental caliber. He haa done nothing but make a mess or ine Business of the commitslnn His principal action appears to have Deen 10 rorm a coalition with H. H. Corey to control appointments. I was active In the recall election and helped to nominate Mr. Kerri gan. Now I am disappointed." C V. Soderback filed yesterday for county commissioner of Multno mah county, but his certificate was defective and had to be returned to him. Mr. Soderback is a member of the industrial labor party. The time for filing of candidates by nomination expired last night. SEWERS ARE PLANNED Lonjr-Bcll Company to Install New System at West Kelso. KJCiO, Wash., Sept. 13. (Spe cial.)
