A sharp Increase In the over
seas demand lor lumDer hs put
heart into all the owners of tim
ber and sawmills and logging out
fits that are at present out of a
job. A rise of from $1 to $2 per
thousand feet is reported in ex
port lumber, enough to make it
move like a toboggan down a
slick slide.
The recent microscopic reduc
tion in transcontinental rail
freight rates has "toot affected the
lumber situation materially; it
was too small. At present, the
lumber can be bought at the Ore
gon mills and hauled and almost
built into a house, for less mon
ey than the freight to the Missis
sippi and Missouri valley points
that would normally be the best
Oregon market.
Shipments Almost .Nothing
The prices back there are so
high, and their crop sales condi
tions so lethargic, that scarcely
any lumber is being shipped there
An auto tourist who recently vis
ited Salem, towards the end of a
6000-mile tour that started and
was to end in San Diego, reported
that he saw more building in
Portland and from there to Sa
lem, than in all the rest of his
journey. He said that in the
Mississippi valley there wasn't
any more building than there is
hair growing on a billiard ball.
With all this market financially
closed to their product, the Ore
gon mills have been up against it
almost to the limit.
Situation Itright
The prospect of a 6 per cent
reduction in rail rates, however,
makes the lumber horizon look
much brighter; it even looks like
a genuine May sunrise, albeit
with prospect of rain or hail or
something to keep it from Retting
too good. Such a reduction
would almost certainlv put th?
coast m:ils into immV.iule ser
vice, and give, employment , for
thousands of men who aro now
necessarily idle.
Another ray of light comes
from the railroad situation. The
production of ties has been one
of the R-at small industries ot
the state, but for a year , there
has hardly been a tie sold. 'K'bw','
however, there is a prospect that
the tie market will soon dpea'at
a price of about 14. ' This is not
near the price of$18 months
ago, but It is enough to set ev
ery mill wel to turning. It i3
unaemood that contracts may
soon be offered for spring de
livery, so that the mills can be
cutting all winter.
- Full Crew May Start
One local sawmill owner an
nounces that as soon as such a
contract materializes, he will
start a full ere wof loggers and
mill men. Because of the short
age of other work, the woodsmen
are ready to accept a very small
advance of their total earnings,
and let the rest ride until the
product is sold, where a definite
sales contract can be mad3 to se
cure them- It is understood that
the banks will be prepared to fi
nance such deals up to tne point
of putting them over.
With this development In pros
pect, the timber situation In Ore
gon no longer looks like a liabil
ity, and the man who has trained
himself to swing an axe or ban
die the donkey engine may have
a real asset in his hands.
