PORTLAND. Sept. 24. Output of
mills of the West Coast Lumber
men's Association for the past week
exceeded shipments by 16,750,000
foet. according to the latest bulle
tin of the association. Even at this
rato it will require several weeks of
capacity operation to replace the
stocks that were diminished during
tho rush of last spring and summer.
Practically every mill in Oregon and
Washington is short on stock, and
tho Industry as a whole is estimated
to be short approximately 45 per
cent of normal. Anticipated heavy
fall and winter trade will doubtless
hold down stocks on hand at the
Car shortage continues seriously
to affect the shipment of lum1jr
from the mills, though officials of
thn railroad administration hav9 giv
en assurance of an increased supply.
Tho five principal carriers serving
tho Northwest are the Southern Pa
cific, Union Pacific, Great Northern,
Northern Pacific and the Milwaukee
and these roads aro co-operating
with tho lumber mill men and with
tho West Coast Lumbermen's As
sociation In efforts to provide more
cars. Latest reports indicate a
small Increase in the number of
empty westbound cars over two of
tho lines, a decreased number on one
line and no change in the othor two
Tn snite of tho continued car short
age, however, the mills nro moving
within 25 per cent of tholr normal
volume of business and tho industry
generally Is producing within 7 per
cent of its normal output.
On account of tho uncortaln car
situation some of tho mills In West
ern Oregon and Western Washing
ton am not accepting now business,
ponding an improvement in condi
tions; meanwhllo they aro continu
ing capacity operations In an effort
to replenish depleted stocks.
That the agricultural lands of th
O. and C. Land Grant will be opened
to homestead entry at an early date
and that the filing will be made at
the Lakevlew land office. Is th In
formation received from a reliant
source at Washington, D. C, at Th
Herald office today. The informa
tion intimates that the Klamath.
county lands will be the first of tho
grant lands to be opened.
It will be recalled that, approxi
mately a million acres of these grant
lands were taken away from tha
Southern Pacific Company about
three years ago by a decision hand
ed down from the United States So-
preme Court. Since that time the
work of classifying the lands as ag
ricultural and timber lands has beea.
going on under the direction of the
Department of the Interior. I-and
where the merchantable timber has
exceeded 300,000 feet have been des
ignated as timber and those below
this amount as agricultural. It is
estimated that there are about 40,
000 acres of the grant lands in
Klamath county, a considerable por
tion of which are agricultural lands.
These tracts lie for the most part on
the west side of the Upper Klamath
Lake and in the Worden district to
the south of this city.
The timber larfds pre to bo
blocked off In units, and sold at auc
tion much after the manner of the
Indian lands on the Klamath reser
vation. A considerable portion of the clas
sifying of the grant lands has been
done by local men, Bert E. Wlthrow
of the Klamath County Abstract
Company being one of these.
