AN EDITORIAL FROM THE "OREGONIAN"
of Sept. 6, 1917.
Is Lumber Really Dearer!
It is generally understood that the lumbermen
of the Northwest have had a tough time for quite a
number of years, but there are- a few people, aside
from those interested in some branch of the business,
who understand fully or even partially the great slump
several years ago and the prevailing unfavorable
conditions at the present time.
If is estimated by government officials that in
normal times about one million people are employed
in the lumber industries in the United States, and
that one quarter of these, or 250,000, are employed
in the Northwest Oregon, Washington and, Idaho.
But during several years, up, say, to the first of July,
1916, 25 per cent of these men were idle.
When the loss of wages to over 60,000 people
is added to strikes, car shortages, and the low price of
lumber, it can be seen that the lumbermen hav had
their worries. But many think, since war orders have
begun to pour into the mills and dealers, that once
more the lumbermen are profiting. Is that true? Is
it not a fact that lumber comparatively is) today one
of the cheapest commodities on the market?
An advertisement of the Tum-A-Lum Lumber
Go's, makes the following statements: "In 1914 a Turn
A-Lum barn cost 40 hogs; in 1917 same barn costs 24
hogs- In 1914 a Tum-A-Lum house cost 480 bushels of .
wheat; in 1917 same house costs 225 bushels of wheat.
In 1914 a Tum-A-Lum silo cost 220 bushels of corn; in
1917 same silo costs 110 bushels of corn. In 1914 a
Tum-A-Lum machine shed cost 20 tons of alfalfa; in
1917 same shed costs 10 tons of alfalfa."
Nowhere have we seen the facts as to the pres
ent comparative prices of lumber so tersely stated.
