to say anything but that tho So
ciety needs tho assistance of the
public at Thanksgiving, but as
there tuny be many who hnvo not
studied the work or had occasion to
know of some of the good accotop-
litdied, it would be well to say that
! this Society in located in the city of
Portland but cares for all children
throughout the State of Oregon
who at ci in ne ed. The Society has
never been known to refuse admis

DECEMBER 1 1
Interstate Commerce Com
mission Will Act On
Ruinous Rates of Southern Pacific
Against Willamette Lumbermen.
Many Eastern Oregon Mills File
A telegraji from Franklin K,
Lane, interstate commerce commis
sioner, to J. N. Teal, attorney for
Oregon k Washington Lumber
Manufacturers' associations, was re
ceived lsst week conveying the wel
come news that the commission has
fixed upon December 11 forbear
ing the case of Willamette valley
lumber manufacturers against the
Southern Pacific company to cancel
the recent increase of the freight
rate on lunibtr from valley mills to
San Francisco Bay points. The
commission has decided to take up
all together the Pacific northwest
complaints of lumbermen against
NEW RATE IS RUINOUS.
The valley mills have been hard
hit by the freight rate advance on
California shipments, and a large
number have shut down pending
the'oiitcome of tho litigation started
against the railroads. The mills
have been unable to pay the ad
vanced rail rate, and those that are
not within reach of water transpor
tation are put out of business. The
increase of the rail rale amounted
to about 60 per cent.
Formerly the railroads carried
valley lumber to San Francisco for
$'J.10 per ton. This rate was made
by the railroads to iuduce mill men
to invent their capital in the valley
and develop the lumber industy.
No sooner had the mills fjot fairly
to runniug aud developed a trade
that enabled them to live, than the
railroad traffic meu booBted the rate
from $3.10 to $5 per ion.
The railroad men attempted to
justify their action by saying the
fcrmer rate was lower than prevail
ing charter rates on shipments by
water from Portland to San Fran
cisco. CASK TO BE AmU'ED.
While that may have been true
directly followiog the San Francisco
disaster, when there was an abnor
mal demaud for lumber, it i not
true today, for charter rates have
dropped back to their normal stage
of about $4.50 per 1,000 feet.
The railroad company has kept
its increased rate in effect, and it is
now costing valley mills 2bout $8.
50 to ship 1 ,000 feet of green lum
ber to San Fraucisco Bay points
while the sea coast mills are able to
ship by water at $4. Ho.
The valley mills see their finish
unless they can secure relief
through the interstate commerce
commission. Mr. Teal will go to
Washington to argue their case,
and at the same time will look after
the case of the Oregon & Washing
ton Lumber Manufacturers' asHoci
atiou, which has obtained a tempor
ary injunction against the Union
Pacific, Northern Pacific and Great
Northern to prevent similarly ruin
ous increases of the transcontinent
al lumber rate on Oregon and Wash
ington foreBt products.
