AN effort is being made to organize a local company for
the establishment of the lumber industry. Co-op-oration
of citizens is essential and should be forthcoming,
for it is a mutter of fact that one such institution brings
others. It is not a matter that concerns Medford only,
but the entire county, and unity of effort is necessary for
We have waited long enough for the timber barons,
owning and holding vast timber tracts for speculative
purposes, to act. It is apparent that such action will only
come after it has been forced. Importing practically till
the lumber and lumber materials used in the valley, send
ing out money constantly to maintain payrolls elsewhere,
will never develop or create industries of our own.
A Klamath company some time since offered to" estab
lish a box factory here, provided one million feet of pine
timber per month for a period of five years was furnished.
As pine boxes are practically a by-product of the lumber
industry, and as our forests are three-quarters other
woods, it is impractical to fulfill the demands of the Klam
ath concern unless operations are conducted for the gen
eral manufacture of the other timber. To secure the mil
lion feet of box material it would be necessary to cut four
or five million feet of timber.
With lumber manufacturing established, the box fac
tory problem would settle itself. The first aim should
therefore be for the establishment of a lumber mill, and
the efforts of the community should be directed towards
Jackson county possesses more than I went billion
feet of commercial timber, available for manufacturinir
purposes, covering an area of over u million acres. When
manufactured, this timber will produce on an average one
carload of lumber to the acre. To manufacture the
matured standing timber at the rate of 21fj per cent per
year, will require forty yeai-s, and the increased growth
of young limber would oflset the manufactured product.
Po manufucluro this quantity would employ G000 men
The cost of manufacturing this timber is estimated at
$8 per thousand feet, and means a total payroll for labor
of $100,000,000, or $.1,000,000 a year.
The county's greatest need is the development of its
resources, which would create payrolls and bring in wealth
and timber is our greatest natural resource And the most
It is up to.Iackson county to help itself and the most
practical way to render this help is co-operation in the
establishment of a lumber mill.
