PILING UP STOCKS
Car Shortage Prevents Fix
, ing Delivery Dates.
RAILROADS BUY LUMBER
Carriers Ordered West by Com
mission Xot Expected Here
. Before December.
' Buyers of lumber have ceased to
Hictate dates or delivery, as has
lieen their custom many times in
other seasons, and have expressed a
willingness to accept deliveries "as
Boon as possible" for manufacturers
to make them. This is due to the
tact that the lack of cars has made
deliveries difficult and because most
manufacturers now have on their
books all the orders they can han
dle for some time with present con
The railroads all over the country
are now buying large quantities of
car materials. One of the big rail
lines of the country, in placing an
order with a southern pine dealer
recently, was not particular about
specifying a time of delivery, but
left that to the convenience of the
Car 50 Per Cent Short.
There has been no relief from the
car shortage in the last week. The
mills of the northwest have ob
tained approximately 50 per cent of
their car requirements. Mills on
branch lines have fared even worse
and have obtained only a small per
centage of their needs.
"I have immediate need of 150
cars," declared a lumberman. "I
have taken things in my own hands
and have written f to the president
of the road asking for cars. If I
do not receive them my mill will
have to be closed."
The Interstate commerce commis
sion has ordered large numbers of
cars to the west coast, but they will
be slow in reaching here. No con
siderable relief can be expected be
fore the first of next month, and the
car supply cannot reach normal be
fore the first of the new year.
There is a scarcity of box cars and
the mills are making use of flat
and gondola, cars. These are not
entirely satisfactory for the . ship
ment of the select grades of lumber,
for which there is a big demand
from all domestic sources.
Mills Piling Up Storks.
The car situation has caused the
mills to pile up large quantities of
lumber of all grades. The yards
have been filled with the common
Krades until some concerns are
sorely pressed to find room. The
storage sheds are full of select
grades of lumber.
In isolated cases, due to the car
situation, mills have offered straight
cars of high priced upper for prompt
Ehipment in order that they might
obtain the most money through the
available cars. In other words, they
have sidetracked orders for com
mons and have rushed through the
shipments of uppers for which they
received more money.
There has been a decided improve
ment in the lumber market in the
last week. The temporary slump
that caused some concern for a
short time seems to have passed
and buyers from all parts of the
country are now back in the market.
The export business continues to
be good, and large cargoes of lum
ber are going to the orient and to
other foreign points.
Big Building Year Forecast.
The prediction is made through
out the country that the building
programme of 1923 will be equally
as large as that of the current year.
This would bring prosperity for the
lumber industry on the entire Pa
All of the big logging camps are
at work and are making up for the
jion-working periods they experi
enced last summer when the forest
fires, menaced the timber. Logs are
being stored iu ponds for winter
The Portland, Astoria & Pacific
line, which leads through Veronia
to the Oregon American Lumber
company's timber on the Nehalem,
has become a feeder of logs for
the Columbia river markets. Sev
eral camps are running on the line
and cars are daily dumping logs
Into the Columbia at the Nehalem
Boom company near Burlington.
These logs are being sold, for the
most part, in the Portland market.
The Oregon American Lumber com
pany, which is owned by the Cen
tral Coal & Coke company of Kan
sas City, is operating its camps near
Keasey. The mill at Vernonia has
not been started and will not be
operating for a year.
H. A. Long Goes Home.
H. A. Long, chairman of the board
of directors of the Long-Bell Lum
ber company, after a visit of his
holdings in the northwest which
kept him since the middle of Sep
tember, returned to Kansas City
A great deal of Mr. Long's time
was spent at Kelso, where he went
over the work of the building of the
new town of Longview.
Plans for this town, which is to
be the center of the Long-Bell
operations in the west, will not be
announced for some time. When
they are announced a nation-wide
advertising campaign will be
started, which will not only adver
tise to the world the town of Long-
view, but Oregon and "Washington as
well. Men from the Kansas City
office of the concern are now in
this section gathering data for the

CITIZENS TO CAST BALLOTS
IN 425 PRECINCTS TUESDAY
Places in Multnomah for Voting at General Election Are Listed;
Precinct 314 Is Eliminated.
CITIZENS of Multnoman county
will cast their ballots Tuesday
in 425 precincts. Since the last
general election precinct 314 has
been eliminated, thereby decreasing
the number of polling places by one.
There are 390 precincts in the city
and 35 in the county. The precincts
from 1 to 98 are on the west side
of the river and those from 99 to
2D8Jf. are on the east side. On ac
count of the fact that Linnton did not
become a part of the city until a few
years ago that portion of the town
has been assigned precincts 317
and 318. '
The precincts outside of the city
limits start with 299 and include
317. Then two precincts are skipped
and with 319 they continue to 426.
