AS TO FUEL SUPPLY
CONSUMERS ARE FRONTED
BY A PERSISTENT PROBLEM
Causes for the Steady Advance In the
Price of Wood Coal Coming Into
More General Use Than Ever Be
fore In Tlilo Vicinity Walla Walla
Gets the Same Freight Rate for
Wood as Pendleton.
Seven dollars a cord, and not very
big cords at that. Such is the verdict
of tho woodman nnd such Is the price
thnt tho peoplo of this city will have
to pay to keep wnrm through the cold
months that nro coming on tho heels
of this time when tho chief thought
Is how to wear as few clothes as pos
sible witli as unconscious an air us
can be mustered.
The wood situation Ib growing grad
ually from year to year a more seri
ous one to this section, nnd It will be
but a short time until tm price of tho
fuel will reach so high a mark that
all of the residents here will be forc
ed to use coal, or spend all of their
earnings for the wood. Hut the peo
ple are learning tho lesson early, and
more coal Is used each year. This
year tho Pendleton Hotel nnd the Sav
ings Bank, and several of the other
big places of tho city will cut out
the wood, and most of tho business
houses along the main streots have
already done so. Wood Is doomed as
far as general uso is concerned, nnd it
will not be long until the wood tlte
In the parlor grate will be a luxury
only Indulged In by tho well-to-do.
Costs More to Get Out Wood,
The forest supply is fast shrinking
back farther and farther from the
railroad tracks, nnd for each half
mile that the timber line recedes the
price will grow from 50 to 75 cents
on each cord. And another thing that
Is making wood dear is the fact that
no one can bo found to cut It in the
timber. Men nre getting $1.25 a cord
for cutting now, and nre hard to And
at that price. Thun it takes from
75 cents to $1.50 to get n cord hauled
to the car, so that the wood costs
$3 and $3.50 on tho cnr. Added to
this is the cost of handling in the
city, and the cutting prlco here so
that the consumer can look forward
to paying from $0.50 to $7.
The county usually burns ubout 120
cords of wood during tho winter the
water company COO cords, the power
company 1.K00, and the hotels and
restaurants have also used n good
deal. This year the power company
will be the only big consumur in tho
city, for all of the rest nre hoping to
put In coal. The city wants coal, but
will perhaps use wood for anuther
year. The hotels, with the exception
of the French Hestnurant, are already
using coal, and the water company
uses slabs ut a reduced rate. Last
year the city consumed about 10,000
cords during the winter, but tills year
It Is not thought by the dealers that
the figures will reach the 9,000 mark,
and It will bo considered a good year's
trade if It goes over the 8,000. Of
course, the dealers are not worrying,
for as tho uso of the wood decreases
the use of the coal increases, ami
they nre as sure of their business as
tho preacher and the undertaker.
Same Freight Rate for Walla Walla
Most of the wood comes from the
Kamela country, und since Wnllu
Walla has tho same rate over the
rails us Pendleton, much of tho wood
that Is cut goes to that city. This is
one of tho reasons why tho stuff Is so
high in tho home murket. A greut
deal of tho Blue mountain wood goes
to the Washington trade, when It
should conio here. If the rates could
bo graded a little. Pendleton would
get her share of tho cuttings nnd
It would come cheaper and more plen
tiful. But in the ubsenco of tho cut
the price will stay up. and the bulk
of the trade will go to the other place.
The most of the good coal used hero
comes from Hock Springs, Wyo.. and
it is Inid down nt $8 a ton. This is
much cheapor than wood, for u ton of
good coal well handled, will equal two
cords of wood In uny tlmo or place.
The great troublo is that there are
hut few peoplo who know how to
handle coal, and they waste tho heat
and uso twice as much coal as Is nec
essary for the needs of tho occasion.
Increasing Use of Coal.
Looking at it from tho dealers'
standpoint, it will be but n short time
until all of tho fuel will be coal, for
it is cheapor und In the long run Is
better, taking into consideration the
uncertainties of tho service nnd the
increasing difficulty of delivery. In a
year or two tho prlco of wood will
reach so high a figure that all of the
consumers will put in coal Btoves, and
them if the wood men open snmo now
country and the price falls tho people
will still uso tho coal rather than
ngaln change their stoves and heat
