Southern Pine Men
Make Strong Protest
: Eegarding Fir Kates
A strong protest against-the reduction
of the rates on east bound lumber from
the fir producing northwestern states to
Mississippi river points, has been made
to the railroads by Southern pine pro
ducing centers, according to, a telegram
received by If. E. Lounsbury, general
freight agent of the p. W. R. & N.
- The- Southern pine lumbermen protest
against the n w rates granted the fir
lumbermen, which go Jnto effect March
31 and which are a reduction '.- of 7
cents a 100 pounds, on the grounds that
this disturbs the relationship that has
been existing between the two shipping
points and .throws the balance of trade
on the side, of the" fir men. They ask
that a similar;1 reduction be- allowed
them In order that they- may continue to
compete equally in that field.
"This particular instance snows how
carefully' the railroads must, approach
the proposition of reducing railroad
freight rates,' stated. Lounsbury. "In
all reductions.-the biggest problem is to
equably maintain the proper balance in
competitive rates, so that no undue
hardships is placed on any one section
of the country." 1

Henry P. Fletcher, under secretary of

The appointment of Colonel Jay J.
Morrow of the army engineer corps to

wno were acquainted with Colonel Mor-'
row . while lie was stationed here in
charge of the First engineer district
from 1910 to 1915, during which time he
looked after the development of 1 riv
ers and harbors. " . , '
Colonel Morrow has had a long and
creditable connection - with the army
engineers, having served in various ca
pacities during his period of service.
Prior to coming to Portland he served
in the Panama Canal Zone, and there
fore - is thoroughly familiar with the
work which . ha is- going to f take up.
Probably his most note worth .contribu
tion during his service was 'performed
during his service as one of the com
missioners in Washington, D. C. ' dur
ing which time he had charge of the
parks and streets. Under his .direction
the beautiful Rock Creek park, which
is the District of Columbia's v greatest
show place and playground, was hewed
out of, an unsightly background X of
tangled waste. The work which he Ini
tiated and carried along until it became
a reality has been continued through
succeeding commissioners until the
grand scheme- of an encircling . park
system Is now nearly completed.
During his service in Portland Colo
nel Morrow was directly in charge of
the development of The Dalles and Ce
lilo canal and power project, which was
a noted work in Its time. Following his
service here Colonel Morrow say active

peared before the county commis
sioners l this morning to object to
having the courthouse janitor work
done by contract 'Instead of under
the personal direction of the com
missipn, as is now the practice.
Jones pointed out that 14 of the court
house Janitors are married and this was
a bad time to throw them outN)f work.
Some might become county charges, he
said.: He claimed that during the last
three months the unemployment bureau
had spent $7000 getting jobs for family
men and 90 per cent of those for whom
work was procured did not belong to the
legion. : The married janitors in the
courthouse have held their present jobs
from 1 to 20 years, he said.
"In view of the unemployment, men
with families should -be protected." 'he
declared-. "The saving that might be
made by the county would be more than
offset by the economic loss to the com
Chairman Holman replied that he was
convinced that the cost "per square oot
in the courthouse for Janitor service is
considerably more than in privately
owned buildings." . The commission is
under considerable criticism . and -must
keep down coats, he added. Some of the
present janitors got - their positions
through "pull," he indicated, ' '
Commissioner Rudeen, who has inter

he would be glad to hear from anv of
