SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, MONDAY, JULY 19, 1916.
EXPORTATION OF LUMBER.
A man connected with a concern now making war ma
terial remarked a few days ago, that it seemed almost im
possible o get enough skilled workmen. He found that theie
-is a good deal of help that can be had, but only a fraction
of the applicants are men who can do a high grade of mechan
In rush times almost any kind of a workman can get
work. His. inferior product slips along. The inspector may
see its defects'. But when customers are clamoring for deliv
ery of orders, many faults sHp through that ought not to pass.
In the dull times of the past few years, inferior work-'
men have found themselves left out of the shuffle. If there
was' work for only a part of the force, the skilled man was
kept at the bench, Avhile the less efficient man' was informed
that there was nothing doing. No complaint might be made
of the quality of his work. But somehow there was never
anything for him.
Just now the rush of war orders is providing work for
many men, whose product is of inferior quality. But when
the war orders stop and before the normal trade of peace
times is re-established there will be many an idle day for
the second rate artisan. These conditions are true not mere
ly of workmen in the lines making war material, but in all
lines of mechanical employment.
The young mechanic should put some brains into ids
work. He should study the philosophy of mechanical pro
cesses and physical forces, and learn the one perfect way of
'performing every motion. If some of the time spent in dis
cussing socialism and baseball were spent In getting informa
tion about the best methods of producing the desired mechan
ical results, there would be more meat for the family and
more clothes for the kidlets. Also in every trade there are
practical books of technical science that give good ideas. If
they cannot be had in a man's own town, they can be borrow
ed at slight cost from circulating libraries. Forest Grove

' The bond holdors were origlnnlly Europeans. Since the
war tho European holdors hit vo been soiling American securi
ties, and many millions of such secUrlttoH have found their
way back to America on account of tho big balance of trade
in our favor.

If there Is an interested person who isn't worrying as
a result of tho mess we haven't found him. Even those who
were clani6ring loudest to have the government prosecute
tho forfeiture suit are worrying, because the only net result
of the suit to date, so far as Oregon Is concernud, Is to (tut
down the tax revenue of the state and counties affected. -The
The proposed co-operation of the lumber manufactur
ers of the Pacific Northwest under the name of tho Douglas
Fir Exploitation and Export Company, of which much has
been heard during the past month by those most vitally in
terested, is as yet only tentative, so far as several of the nianu-
. facturers who are expected to become members are concern-
. ed, says the Telegram.
v The co-operation by-laws provide for a capital of $200,
000, to be divided among about twenty members. Only lum
ber manufacturers will be stockholders, and any lumber man
ufacturer may get stock by agreeing to turn over exclusively
to the' corporation his entire export trade.
It is carefully set forth by the organization that the cor
poration will engage solely in the foreign trade, and that no
. business will be sought or accepted in the United States or
its possessions. Australia Is said to be the principal objective
point, for in that island province it is believed a good mar
ket awaits the active agent.
The object of the new corporation, however, is worthy
and will undoubtedly have a sufficiently broad field in in
creasing the sale of Douglas fir in the markets of the world,
es that cannot fail to meet withlt will be conducted along lin
the approval of the public and the government, as represented
by the federal trades commission.
The men active in this undertaking are not novices In bus
iness, and will have a strong working agreement, which it
is believed will include a majority of the tidewater mills of
importance in the Northwest. Their sole object is to build
up the export trade, to introduce Douglas fir where it is not
now used, and to increase its use in other countries where a
start has' beeii made.
High-class representatives can be sent to foreign coun
tries to get orders without the expense being a burden to the
individual manufacturer, and all will share equally in their
success. Effective publicity and promotion can be procur
ed more cheaply and to better advantage.
The lumber industry of Oregon and Washington, the
basic industry of these states, needs all the help it can pos
sibly get to put it again upon its feet. Just at present the
expert trade is seriously hampered by the lack of ships. Or
ders could be had abroad, if willing to accept the low prices
everywhere prevailing, but no ships can be chartered to carry
An active lumber market makes good business in many
other lines, and with the mills running full time this country
has always been prosperous. Anything that will set the saws
going again should be warmly welcomed.
