and controversies over measurements'
are the disturbing feuiure oi the other
wise satisfactory lumber trade the Uni
ted Stutes is. now duing with Argentina,
Uruguay ami Bruzil, declares a report
on the "Lumber Markets of the East
Const of South America," just issued
i by the Uureau of Foreign and Domestic
Commerce ot the Department ot Com
merce. These disputes arise principally
in connection with shipments of south
ern yellow pine which makes up the
bulk of the lumber sold to the east coast
i of South America. This great district
imports annuallv GO.' million board feet
of lumber, of which H-li) million feet are
yellow pine from the United States. The
total lumber consumption of the three
countries is 735 million board feet,
Argentina and Uruguay, although
about 7,000 miles distant from the Uni
ted States, constitute virtually it it ad
dition to our domestic w ood-consumiug
field, so similar lire market conditions.
For more than 10 years Ml per cent oi
nil lumber going into commerce in the
two countries has come from the forests
cf North America, and nearly !)0 per
cent of the imports, exclusive of those
' from other South American countries, is
credited to the United States and Can
ada. These figures might seem to indi
cate that the markets do not warrant
investigation, but the opposite is true,
according to Spccia Agent Hoger H.
Simmons, author of the report. There is
not only u possibility of fuither extend
ing the markets for American lumber,
but there is a necessity of calling at
tention to conditions prejudicial to the
interests of American lumber and to
certain competitive forces operating to
lessen demand and affect future con
sumption. In liill the imports of lumber into
Aigeiitinu amounted to 210fjl,0fm feet,
made up as follows: Yellow pine. 101,
L'OOIOO feet; spruce. :i.ri.i;00.(i0(l feet;
white pine, 30.110,000 feet; Spanish
cedar, II.MOO.IOO feet; South American
hardwods, 15,030.000 feet; oak, 2,1 45,
00(1 feet; Douglas fir, 3,300,000 feet;
ash, .130,000 feet; Panama pine. O.sliO,
000 feet; walnut, DL'S.OoO feet; 'muling
any, 11,000 feet. In other wordy, it is
necessary to buy ubroad most of the
soft-woods so necessary in nearly ev
ery community. Yellow pine is very
generally appreciated And comes almost
entirely 'from our southern poits. Spruce
is imported principally from Canada,
although important shipments are made
from Hoston, Until 1011 there was no
outside competition with North Amer
ican spruce, but between that yar mid
the outbieak of the war Austrian spruce
became an important factor. Over VI
per cent of imports of white pine comes
from Canadian forests, but is shipped
mostly from Hoslon. Shipments from
Hoston hnve been the rule for so ninny
years that consignments from other
ports are considered inferior. Doifglns
fir, of course, is imported from our
western const. So fur US price is con
cerned, it competes on about equal
terms with southern yellow pine.
Yellow pine is the principal export
from the United States, and every im
porter interviewed by Mr. Simmons in
Argentina nnd Fruguay emphasized the
fact that claims over measurement dis
crepancies were the greatest factor pro-
n ot'j moting dissatisfaction and discouraging
I thn importation of this kind of lumber
Niiri'iThe yellow-nine industry should take ni

report declares, und see to it thai the
faults of the present system lire removed
or that some better method of making
and guaranteeing menun m.-vts is
adopted. The cost of measuring n steam
er cargo in Aigentinn and i.i';'iay oi

for similar work to the exporter o.
lumberman iu tho United Stnt 'S. To-
gether these sums are inoro than suf
ficient to insure uccuraie nuasun
inents. That Americans can measure ,.i
suit tho trade in South Aiuvncn is dem
unstinted by the fact that oi.r western
exporters have no trouble ut nil wilu
their customers on tho west coast 1 1
In Brazil the lumber situation is rath
er complicated, writes Mr. Simmon...
The virgin forests are unmeasured and
contain untold varieties oi tall trees or
fairly large diameter. Yet iirazil is in.
porting 00 million feet of pine liiuibi:.
against a domestic product ion of 4 j
million feet. One third of the domestic,
piuu lumber production is exported. A
in Argentina and Uruguay, yellow pile
from our southern states is the princ;
pill lumber imported, but Scotch ("
from Sweden has supplanted the North
Anioiicaii -spruce, which nut many iai-.
ago found a market iu Brazil primarily
as a substitute for European pine i:im
fir. Ou the whole, conditions hi oo
thought to be prejudicial U) the sole o:
American lumber, but they slorlo ,
carefully studied and watched if t'i"
United Slates is to i nc reuse .'t.1 share i"
Brazil's lumber trade.
There is a great deal of conipl iint in
Hrazil regarding yellow-pil e shipment",
resulting from the large proporti
overruns. In thicknc.s.i this ovein n will
vary from u quarter to three i;i:nrter i
of an inch, and iu length from four I
15 inches. The importer is not oblige.
to pay the American exporter for ihi-i
overrun, but it is a source of exti';i r:
pcnsi! ueverthelcs'S, sometimes ii -n: u :t
ing to us much us iflOO ou a slng'e in
go. This results from a. Brazilian !a(
that not only provides for the n-un -I
duty on parts of cargo not invoiced bo
levies a fine equal to the uni" i.it n '
that duty. With the present high dutie-!
it docs not require much of iiii mei
run on a million-foot cargo tVr the pen
alty to run up to a considerable sum.
Brokers, exporters, and un mills intei
ested iu Itrnilian lumber mailicls aro
urged to take immediate steps to reliov
the consignees of the burden of this ut -IH'ces.-ary
expense. The grading of our
yellow pine is also unsatisfactory.
Three concerns, iu Hio de daneiio claim
that they lire compelled at big expense
to maintain representatives in tile I a'
ted States to inspect lumber befoio
.shipment. The small dealer can uc;
stand this expense and the large dealer
should not have to.
"I. umber Markets of the East Coast,
of South America," Special Agents Se
ries No. 112, is the rrn,it of a seilis
of reports on lumber laarhels in Sunt i
America. It deals fully with the doimV
tie resources of Aigentinn. Uruguay
and Brazil, and the kinds, dimension.-,
cosls, prices, etc., of imported lumbei.
The extended discussions of present
trade methods and possibilities of ex
tending American tiade are opportune.
There is also information concerning
special lumber products, such as floor
ing und ceiling, boxes and shool.s, door-i
and windows, barrels, lath and polei.
