GREAT YEAR FOR

COMES INTO OWN.
Manager of Hlievlln-lllxon Company
Hums I'p Condition In Truth) Dur
ing Pant Year HuKgints
In a recent statomont made to The
Tlmborman, the Portland lumber
men's Journal, T. A. McCann, general
manager of The Bhevlln-Hlxon Com
pany, of Hand, predicts that 1917
will be tho greatest year for western
pine In tho history of tho country.
Mr. McCann's completa statement
"I would suy. In summing up con
ditions which surrounded tho west-
urn plno trade during the past year,
that it has at last coma into its own
and Is being recognized by tho trade
generally as a very superior ar
"When properly handled and grad
ed western plno lumber can bo ship
ped anywhere throughout the east
and will give satisfaction. The main
trouble In the past has been that
customers have been receiving a dif
ferent class of lumber In western
plno from different localities and got
to a point where they hesitated be
fore placing any business for west
ern plno. They have, however, dis
covered that there aro certain places
where they can bo reasonably sure
of getting nlco soft texturo and well
milled, well graded stock, and I do
not think that these mills ever will
suffer for orders for western plno,
oven though tho demand for lum
ber Is small.
Kuvor New Grading.
"Thero has been a movement on
foot to grado western pine on differ

consideration, among Its othor de

of establishing a gfniTe of No', r west

ern pine, will at least represent tho
higher pcrcontngo of the No. 2 stock
now shipped, but which Is technical
ly laid out from tho No, 1, according
to tho present rules; in other words.
I am In favor of seeing a standard
set for grades of western pine that
will fit this particular wood rather
than to take the grades which we
have used for northern plno and try
to adopt our w'ood to them.
"Tho demand for our product the
last three months has been so much
in excess of our expectations that
we have had to withdraw all our
salesmen from the road and also

U. S. ARMOR PLANT
WITHIN NEXT TWO OR THREE YEARS
(Br United Preu to The Daily Bulletin)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 22i
Whllo tho scloctlon of a site tor tho
government armor plant appears im
minent, actual realization of tho gov
ernment's Idea to supply Its own
armor plato for war vcbscIs is yet
in tha distant future.
According to a member of tho gen
eral board which has the tnsk of
recommending a dcslrnhlo location
for this federal industry, it will be
at least thrco yoars before the plant
is In actual operation.
The selection of a site Is really
but tho first stop towards the actual
construction of the plnnt, and acv-
ornl years will olnpso before any
community can expect the benefits ul
this $11,000,000 Investment.
Naval mon hnvo roushly estimated
that tho plant will employ from 2000
to 3000 men, ranging from a few
highly paid exports down to the
greater portion of unsklllod labor
ers The money circulated in the
community howovor from salaries
and othor incidents of an Industry
of Its size mukes It woll worth tin
offorts of tho cities seeking its locn
Tho fight for tho plant has aroused
keen competition among cities in
evory Boctlon of tho country which
stnrtod long boforo a government
owned and operated plant was ns
stuod. Dnnlols recommoiulod tho plant in
his annual roport for 1913 and again
In 1914 and 1915.. Tho last ses

On one of their regular visits to

Agent, and H. E. Lounsbury, Gon
oral Freight Agent, of the O.-W. R

S. L. Wiggins, local Freight and

themselves as highly satisfied with
the business being done by the Cen
tral Oregon branch, and predicted
better things for Bend In the near
"We take' an especial interest in
Bend," Mr. McMurray observed. "It
looks good to us here."
Kxpoot lllg Increase.
Mr. Lounsbury when asked In re
gard to the car situation, said that
the recent embargo on the Union
Pacific had resulted In a bettering
of conditions, and that a slight In
crease In the supply of cars being
received at Huntington is being
noted. "Whether this Increase will
coutlnuo or not, it is hard to say at
the present time," he admitted, but
of course wo ore hoping for the best.
Wo are largely dependent on the
loaded cars Bent to the coast from
the east, and naturally this feature
of the question Is beyond our con
trol." Mr. McMurray stated that be Is
more than pleased with the showing
made by the O.-W. in the passenger
department. "Our business is in
creasing steadily, even during the
"winter," h a&Vl. '.lantL.w.fc. cfinf ident
ly expect that in the spring and sum
mer a big advance will be noted."
No immediate road or equipment
changes are contemplated, accord

before the naval committee.
Briefs from cities seeking tho loca
tion of the plnnt were filed with the
Secretary . of the Navy and hearings
wore held In Washington In Septem
bor and October.
The board In Its Investigation wns
guided by the military principle .laid
down by the War College, viz:
"As a general military principle,
no supply dopot, arsenal no manufac
turing plant of any considerable size
supported by War Department ap
propriations for military purposes,
should be established or maintained
east of the Appalachain mountains,
west of the Cascade or Sierra Neva
da mountains, nor within 200 miles
of our Canadian or Mexican border,
and stops should be taken gradually
to cause to be moved depots or man
ufacturing plants already established
In violation of this military principle.
The board further reported that
the principal requirements for an
armor pinto plant site as prescribed
by the Bureau of Ordinance In 1913,
were: "Geological character of site;
facilities for securing raw matorinl;
tho labor .market; and facilities for
delivering completed material."
The following cities have been left
in the field: Birmingham, Tusca
looBa and Gadsden, Alabama; Romo,
On.; Lomax, Cairo and Metropolis,

The board Is now considering the
morlts of these sites.
