One of the main arguments advanced
by the northwest emploter against

they could not successfully compete

many reasons for coming to thl con

war. In 1914, Ilussla produced about
44 per cent of tho export lumber ot
the world; alnce that time Russia
ha not produced any lumber or very
much of anything else except dls
t'irbanoes. Present Indication aro
not very favorable tor lumber or
other production In Russia. It I
true that there U lota ot timber In
South America, bo,, the Industry la
not developed very highly In the
South Amerlcan'fleld. It will tako
machinery to derelop It and they will
have to look to' the United States for
the machinery which they will be
alow In getting because of tb de

much for export, as Canadian lum

with tho dulayod building program In

"In tho faco ot this prosperous

Wo bolleve tho suro and safe way for

Information from "an excellent au

Interference, would be allowed to ap

., .LONDON, Aug. 6. The cahjnet
today considered the Russian Soviet
reply to the British note on Poland
which was received last night, but
there was no official Indication as
to what action will be taken. It Is
understood, however, that thev reply,
although, not entirely satisfactory,'
will be accepted:
The reply asserts the Dolshevlkl
are ready to conclude an armistice
with Poland provided reasonable
guarantees are given. It says tho
sole obstacle In the way of beginning
negotiations Immediately Is the ab
sence of the Polish delegates.
