Portland, Jan. 29. "We look
for a good year."
Lumbermen fo Oregon and the
Pacific Northwest are decidedly
optimistic in their views. They
have passed the stage where
they fear, something or. other
may happen to dull the chances
of the market in 1916 being a
success. They have reached
that point where the outlook is;
decidedly rosy and nothing ap
pears on the horizen to give' even
a moment's uneasiness. Orders
have fairly piled in to the various
mills, and they have all they can
handle when they reopen. When
that will be is a question. Prices
are climbing, and if freight rates
come to a halt, or back up a little
there will be money in the lum-v
ber business for all those en
gaged. Out of a total of a score of
lumber men questioned regard
ing the present and future, in
connection with the market,
every one made tne statement
that he looked for the best year
since 1913. Conditions are just
right and the snow is one of the
most important factors at the
moment in helping to brighten
Nearly all the mills in Oregon

this Is a critical, time for them 'to

the woods, logging is practically
impossible. All the mills have
run out of logs, and therefore
were they to attempt to operate
it would be at a decided loss. One
man remarked to day that his
mill was closed, and had' been
