REPLYING to tho elmrijo Hint the millionaire timber
men who now own the Portland Telegram, naturally
desiring to secure something besides monthly deficits f roiii
their newspaper investment, were responsible for the Tele
gram's campaign to secure preferential rates for Portland
lumber mill3 that would effectually throttle the lumber
industry of interior Oregon, the Telegram says:
The Whcelro have not a dollar's worth of interest In any lumber mill
In Portland. Thy hnve lumber Interests In Lane, Jackson and Tillamook
counties. If Tho Telegram wore to ho used to further their private In-
leronts It would hare fought to maintain tho rates that discriminate against
Portland In favor of the valley mills, for It Is there their private interests
He. Hut, on the contrary, Tho Telegram has fought and contended for nn
equality of rates between Portland and tho valley points, on the ground
that It wns tho fair and square thing to do, no matter who was helped or
harmed by it.
The Telegram is mistaken. The "Wheelers have no lum
ber interests in the couniics enumerated. Thoy have im
mouse timber interests, howevor, timber land bought
ohoap and held for speculation. They neither sell nor
operate, but hold for unearned increment. Even the ex
tension of the Pacific & Eastern to their Jackson countv
holdings did not result in operation. They are private
preserves for the benefit of future generations.
"While it is true that the Wheelers are not operating in
Portland, they are at MeC'ormiok, Washington, and
hence would secure the benefit of any rate reduction
secured by Portland for their lumber shipments to Cali
fornia. they do not profit by the Telegram's campaign
they certainly ought to call it off, for its efforts, if suc
cessful, will seriously depreciate their Oregon holdings.
The Telegram has a peculiarly distorted vision of the
"fair and square thing to do," when it would build up
Portland's lumber industry at the expense of the develop
ment of its own trade territory. "Willi tho advantage of
terminal and water rates, with a freight differential in
Portland's favor to the. cast, with water rates to every
point on the coast ,the Telegram would also have a differ
ential in Port lad's favor to California over the mills of the
Willamette, Umpqua and Rogue River valleys thus
closing the only territory left to themand effectually
blighting tho development of the lumber industry -outside
.So unfair and unreasonable are tho Telegram's conten
tions that no other newspaper in Portland supports them
and none of the commercial organizations indorse tho
Whether or not tho Telegram's owners profit by tho
paper's efforts, the Telegram has proven itself champion
of special interests as against public interests, palliator of
private greed and swineherd
