' CKNTRALIA. March -l.-The meeting
f the Southwestern Ws-hington Lum
ber Manufacturers' Association held in
this city yesterday afternoon was the
largest that has been held for over a
year, nearly every member of the asso
ciation being on band.
A feature of the meeting was the
speech of the president, Harry McCor
miek, in which he protested against the j
2 raise in price. Mr. MiConniek said:
"I attended the meeting of the Ore
gon association and heard them dis
cuss the necessity for a raise, but they
only wanted a raise of $1 on portion
to be raised, and I agreed with them,
but I do not think it good business
policy to make a general .raise of
While I would, as I believe you nil
would, like to get 12 more for our lum
ber, will we by this raise be able to
get this benefit? I doubt it.
Question Not Simple.
"There are many things we should
consider: raie in labor, stunipage, sup
plies, etc., but the most serious problem
to consider is the eifect it will have on
