Large Plants in Centers Reported
to Be Getting All of Space
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
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
"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.
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
