Broader Eastern Market
The Willamette Valley Lumber com
pany, whose base of operations is Dal
las, the Hammond Lumber company and
the Booth-Kelly Lumber company have
taken the initiative to oradicnto dis
criminatory railroad rates, which is
proving n barrier to competing with
Portland for business offering through
out the middle west. It is probable
that complaint will be filed with the
interstate commerce commission, inas
much as while the Southern Pacific
traffic o....cials might favor granting
the concession, and so recommend to
their superiors, it would finally reach
the governmental department for de
termination. An effort is under way,
however, to induce the Southern Pa
cific, company to join with the Spo
kane, Portland & Rcntlle railway and
its eastern connections in grunting
through rates to the territory of the
nortnern lines, i lie action taken is
in the form of n request to the South
ern Pacific to grant joint through rates,
and it is said there is a strong prob
ability that the matter will be adjust
ed to the satisfnetion of the applicants.
However, should the request be denied
the interstate commerce commission
will he appealed to for an order com
pelling the railway company to join
with the North Hunk system and its
eastern connections to make the de
sired concession to the lumber pro
ducers. Heferring to the altitude of the
Southern Pacific in withholding joim
through rates from Willamette valley
lumber mills so they could not com
ipe'tfl (for eastern business' over the
northern lines, Louis (lerlinger, of the
Willamette Valley Lumber company, is
reported to have declined that it lias
resulted in holding back the develop
ment of the industry to the detriment
of all lines of business in the valley.
" P.y reason of the comparatively iso
lated location of lumber mills irt the
valley," he said, ' the market for lum
ber products is narrowed to small limits
and when the demand slackens the up
valley mills are the first to suffer.
They are, idle longer than the mills in
western Washington and in Portland
and along the Columbia river, from
where markets can bo more easily
reached. That is why stumpuge is
worth only .10 cents up the valley com
pared with $3 where the industry has
no such handicaps."
Lumber men who are interested in
getting Willamette valley lumber pro
ducts to eastern markets through the
Portland gateway cite that ever since
the Northern Pacific railway was com
pleted to Portland joint through rates
have applied on all shipments to and
from the east, except on lumber. This
outbound commodity has nee.vr had the
privilege of joint through rates be
cause of so much of this class of traf-

in bringing into effect the joint through

be primed to go before the interstate

that the L'nion Pacific system and the
Southern Pacific, have not in fact been
