St. (Seattle Past-Intelligencer) '
A The bill tt ia proposed by the South
western Lumbermen's Association to
introduce to congress to compel rail
roads to furnish cars within Oye days
trora the date application is made, by
Shippers, under penalty of $10 per day
per car. will be referred to the Pacific
Lumber Manufacturers' Association
at Its nest meeting. The coast lum
bennen will not indorse the bill.
While there has been an acute cai
ahnrtag felt oy northwestern lumber
manufacturer; they have been success
ful In the past In dealing directly with
the officials of the transcontinental
lines and have adhered to the policy of
refusing to make legislative fights for
their own relief. The lumbermen have
taken the position that the Interest of
the lumber manufacturers and railroads
are identical. They" point out that 88,.
ON cars of lumber and shingles are an
nually shipped from this state, while
the total shipments of other products
do- not exceed 10 per cent, of this total.
Cnder the circumstances the North,
western lumbermen believe the rail
toads will do their utmost to provide
fajciljties for handling the traffic.
A threat of precipitating fight be
tween the lumbermen and railroads
would not create any alarm on either
side. Both Insist they are able to tke
tare of themselves. The lumbermen de
clare they could close for a year If the
railroads precipitated a fight and the
roads contend they could get along
without the lumber traffic.
Copies of the circular sent out by the
Southwestern Lumbermen's Associa
tion have been received by officials of
the Pacific Coast Lumber Manufac.
turerg' Association, but the project has
been received coldly. The association
that fathers the bill Is organized to pro
tect the Interest of lumber manufactur
ers in the middle south, and the move
f a car shortage bill is believed by
Coast lumbermen to have been pro
voked by the railroad's action In ln
creasing freight rates. Aside from the
fact that the car situation has been
nsatlsfactory, the northwestern mill
men have not been given a serious
reason for taking up the fight.
Some confusion has arisen among
local lumber manufacturers, owing to
.& similarity of names. When the an
nouncement of the car shortage bill
was known it was believed the organ
ization in southwestern Washington
had taken the initiative. This created
surprise among the -lumbermen of the
northwest, as the association is closely
affiliated with the pacific Lumber Man
ufacturers Association. As a matter of
fact, the Southwestern Washington
mlllmen bad nothing to do with the
movement and did not know of Its In
auguration until, circulars from the
eastern organization were received.
to take this to Tacoma Is not under-
stood In Spokane. Congressman Jones
Is supposed to look after the Interest of
Spokane and a wire from htm Kiys he
has written to the Chamber of Com
merce regarding the matter.
It l reported that in spite of the rec-
commendation of Onerul Ramlall,Oen
eral Kunstnn ha recommended the
American lake site. This, It Is claimed
has oeen done without hts ever having
seen the Spokane site, while flenera
Ittunlull saw both locations. Anothet
feat ire of the matter which look queer
to Spokane is the fact that the bill In
traduced by Cushmaa to carry an ap
proprUtton of 1400,000 for the purchase
of this site. How this can be Is not
understood, for, It Is stated, the lite
was offered some lime ago for tS an
acre, and there are to be 3,000 acres
The amount appropriated Is Just what
would be required to purchase the site
east of Spokane, for this ground can
not be had (or less than 120 per acre

PEOPLE OF 8POKANE ANGRY.
DoNot Take Kindly to Holding
Camp at American Lake.
Spokane, Wash., Jan. 9. The Spo
kane Chamber of Commerce will not
submit without a struggle to allowing
the National encampment for the Pa
cific states to be located at American
Lake, near Tacoma, in face of the fact
that the site east of Spokane has been
recommended by General Randall, of
the war department. The chamber Is
preparing to take vigorous measures to
defeat the apparent object of Congress-
manCushman and- Senator Fonter to lo
oate this near Tacoma, where they live.
Spokane business men, who are Inter
esting themselves In the matter, do not
understand how Tacoma gets so much
of a hold on this proposition. It was
decided to make American lake the site
for the state encampment for the state
militia and the government troops In
the state. Tt was Supposed that the
bill which Mr. Cushman was to intro
duce wns to provide for this JKate en
campment. Now, however, it seems,
he has Incorporated in It a provision
that American lake shall betthe per
manent camp-grounds for the Pacific
This is what Spokane wanted and it
is what was sought by several other
