PORTLAND CEMENT PRODUC
TION IN 1907.
The Portland cement producers of
the United States have replied so
promptly to the statistical inquires
addressed to them by the United
States Geological Survey that it is
now possible to make a very close
estimate of the Portland cement pro
duction for the calendar .year 1907.
Mr. Edwin C. Eckel, who is in charge
of the statistical work on cement for
the Survey, has accordingly prepared
the following statement.
Returns have been received from 87
plants, representing over 95 per cent
of the Portland cement production of
the United States. As the ten plants
which have not yet replied include
only two large producers, it is possi
ble to make a fairly accurate estimate
of the total cement production of 1907.
The returns so far received indicate
that the total output of Portland ce
ment in the United States during the
calendar year 1907 was approximately
48,000,600 barrels. This should be
compared with an output of 46,463,424
barrels in 1906, and of 35,246,812
barrels in 1905.
Though the production of 1907
shows an increase over that of 1906,
it is slight as compared with past an
nual gains in the cement industry, in
dicating that the Portland cement
production of the United States has
now reached a stage in its develop
ment where it is directly and prompt
affected by general business de
An official statement that the
cement required , for the Panama
Canal would be only 4,500,000 barrels
has served to put at rest exaggerated
ideas concerning the importance of
this work to the cemefft trade. The
further statements that bids would be
asked for delivery of clinker on the
isthmus, and that the Government
might possibly erect its own cement
plant there, are also of interest to ex
isting American plants.
ADDITION TO FOREST.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25.-The
President has just signed a proclama
tion creating additions amounting to
nearly 600,000 acres to the Modoc
National Forest in northeastern Cali
fornia. With the exception of a small
area in the northern part of Lassen
County, all the lands put within the
forest by this proclamation are situ
ated in Modoc County; The exact
area of the additions is 570,000 acres,
which brings the total area of the for
est up to 859,018 acres. The (land
proclaimed a part of the Modoc For
est will be put under administration
at once, with Supervisor C. E. Rach
ford, whose headquarter is at Altu
ras, California, in charge. The Addi
tions to the forest have a stand of
valuable yellow pine, which will
amount to several million feet and
will average 12,000 feet to the acre.
There is little or no agricultural land
in the addition.
