doesn't seem at all likely in view of
the wny the Boston team has been play

Brooklyn has a harder struggle a
head. The Dodgers have fourteen
gnmes left on their schedule, one to
day with St. Louis, six with Chicago,
beginning tomorrow, three with Phila
delphia and four with New York.
Thirteen gnmes remain on the Dully
program and they are pretty stiff tus
sles. One gome remains in the present
series with Pittsburg, four with Cin
cinnati, three with Brooklyn and then
the finish against Boston.
Provided Brooklyn breaks even on
the schedule, winning seven and losing
as many, the Dodgers would have a
final perceutnge of .507. To win the
liennant in that event Philadelphia
would have to win nine games, losing
only four, and the Braves would have
to win fourteen games and lose three.

Testifying before the commission, rep
resentatives of big Oregon shippers de
clared two important lumber plants
have already been forced to close and
othera faced other financial disaster be
cause of there being no cars for trans
portation of the products.
The Hammond mill at Mill City has
just closed, it was asserted, throwing
000 men out of employment. The Sberi-
dnn Lumber itnmnnnv mil l.n.- :.1l

financially are the Standard Box &
Lumber company at Willamette and Sil
verton Lumber company at Silvetton.
Portland, Ore., Sept. 22. Concrete re
ports from rfumerous individual lumber
manufacturers provided eloquent testi
mony before the public service commis
sion yesterday of the seriouB damage
mar tne car snortage on the Southern
Pacific has caused the lumber industry
in western Oregon.
William Spruule, president of the
noutneru racitic; W. K. Scott, operat
ing vice-prcsirdent; J. H. Dyer, assist
nut general manager ,and other offl
vials listened alternatively to the dra-j
niatic stories told by-some of the lum-
bermen, and by their frequent interro
gations, suggestions and comment man
ifested a sincere desire to co-operate
with the commission and the shippers
in relieving, the situation ami in pre
venting future similar occurrences.
Critical Conditions Revealed.
Conditions as revealed by some o fthe
witnesses yesterday are most critical.
The plant of the Sheridan Lumber
company, employing 150 men, has not
been able to operate since September
2; the Humomnd Lumber company's
mill at Mill City, working 000 men, wns
forced to close down last night; the
Standard Box & Lumber company at
Scofield, with (SO men, is confronted
with serious financial difficulties; the
Pacific Face Brick company at Willn-
minn has suffered great loss of busi
ness that may permanently impair its
commercial pret-tige; the Silverton
Lumber company at Silverton will be
forced to close within a few weeks if
it does not get relief.
Other minor misfortunes were re
lated through the afternoon with al
most unvarying monotouv.
Closed Plant Piled High.
C. E. Fisher, ninunger of the Sheri
dan Lumber company, which wns
forced to close three weeks ago, ex
plained in considerable detail how the
car shortage had affected his plant.
At the time this plant closed itwns
short 33 cars. Since then it has been
teducing this shortage gradually, as
the Southern Pacific has been supply
ing it with cars at irergular intervals.
The eoinpuaiiy has been forced to cancel
many orders as a result of the short
age. 1 lie docks, warehouses, ami space
adjacent to all the sidings are stocked
with lumber, the necessity of piling
this lumber iu unusual places will en
tail unusual cost iu handling. If it gets
wet it will take on weight and add to
the freight cost iu shipment. Some of
it will be severely damaged by rain.
Of far greater importance than tins,
said Mr. Fisher, is the loss of consid
erable good business that was placed
with competitors because he could not
make deliveries. The plant now has
3,000,000 feet on hand, half of which is
sold. Tho balance could be disposed
of promptly if he eould promise de
livery. With reasonable assurance that
cars will be provided regularly, the
pin nt will resume operations.
Switching Delays Cited.
8. B. Barnard, of the Buxton Lumber
conipauy, on the Tillamook branch of
tho Southern Pacific, reported that his
mill has been short since July 1. His
production is about 15,000 feet a day.
The plant was compelled to close tem
porarily Into iu August.
Mr. Barnard complained that the
Southeru Pacific freight crews bring
cars destined for hi mill into Buxton
lute in th afternoon and . spot them
on the house track at the atatiou. It
is not until the next morning that the
switching crew places them on his
industry track. Thus nearly 24 hours
are lost. C. W. Martym assistant su
perintendent of the Southern Pacific,
told the commission that this practice
now has been eor-ected and that the
ears will be spotted on the industry
track the sanff day they are brought
Mr. Barnard told. lv wav of illus
trating the loss in business due to
the car shortage, that recently he wa
forced to refuse an order for 1,000,000
fent of lumber for export.
Mabel Mill Needs Can.
T. J. Seufer, of the Coast Range
Lumber company, operating a mill at
Mabel, said that his plant has not had j
mra eiiuuKU i' nny -dine hucd upci ra
tions were started in April.
"Other plants around us get ears aud
we dont," he asserted. "I. never know
whore to go to find out about my cara.
I have my office in Portland and al-1
wavs have to rhase around from the'
Wells Fargo building to the I'uion
depot, and then don 't get satisfaction.
I call up the office at the mill every
day, and frequently find that when the
Southern Pacific office in Portland tells
me that they have given us some cars,
that we have no ears at all.
"Within the last two weeks orders
for 13 carloads have been canceled on
us. I am in danger right now of losing
three more carloads." '
Mr. Dey read from the statistical re
ports of the Southern Pacific auditor's
office that Mr. Seufer 's mill on one re
rent occasion had kept a number of
ears for five days. Mr. Seufert insist

Will Be In Charge of Finest
Livestock Exhibit Ever at
Fairgrounds, Salem, Or., Sept. 22.
The drawing of W. B. Comett of Sheild
Oregon, upon the federal grand jury
for service during tiio approaching
term of court and the impossibility of
securing his release from such service
even temporarily, has necessitated a
change of superintendents in the live
stock and dairy products departments
at the state fair, which opens for the
last week in September on Monday,
Mr. Comett had been selected as su
perintendent of the "livestock depart
ment and, in order to fill the vacancy
caused by his enforced absence and in
ability to serve, the fair board trans
ferred William Schulmerich, prominent
dairyman and business man of Hills
boro, from the dairy products depart
ment to tiie livestock department, and
10. T. Judd, at present in charge of the
permanent agricultural and horticultur
al exhibit ot the state ia the Commer
cial club building, of Portland, has been
selected to officiate as head of the
dairy products department. Mr. Schul
merich is one of the pioneers in the
dairy industry of Oregon and oue of
the most prominent and progressive
dairy and livestock authorities in the
northwest. His selection to superin
tend the livestock division will no
'doubt meet with the unanimous approv
al of exhibitors among whom he is
"To judge from n- huiierd survey of
the entries already' received and turn
ed over to me by Mr. Schulmerich, and
the favorable correspondence and in
formation which 1 have received daily
since assuming charge of the work, it
is my impression that a very large and
creditable display will be made in the
dniry products and dairy machinery de
partments this year," said Mr. Judd,
who came from Portland today to con
sult with Secretary Lea of the fair
board and look over the situation gen
ernlly. "The machinery hall is nlready
full to overflowing with exhibits of nil
kinds of dairy machinery and the indi
cations are that there will be an ex
eeptionnllv large and representative ex-
hinit of butter, chees mid all kinds of
dairy products this year. 1 only wish

Mr. Jiuld is also a pioneer in the

ot his active life to the breeding of
purebred horses, cattle, sheep and

He is now putting the buildings iu con

Tillamook Dairies to Show

in the state, if not on tne Pacific coast
Tillamook county has never taken an
active part in the livestock competition

Mabel, read documentary evidence to
show that the Southern Pacific's own
car reports are unreliable.
There is a disposition Jo put us in
the hole," ho said, "by telling us that
we hnve equipment that we kuow we
haven t got."
Mr. Wentworth then rend a letter re
ceived from 1). W. Cumpbell when Mr.
Campbell was assistant general man
ager of the road in Portland iu which
Mr. Campbell apologized for erroneous
car reports that had been given Mr.
Wentworth by Southern Pacific offi
cials. In denial of the testimony made the
Southern Pacific officials on Wednea
day to the effect that the car shortage
in California ia as serious as it is in
Oregon. Mr. Wentworth read the fol
lowing telegram, "not from the wire,"
from A. J. Russell, agent for the Cort
land Lumber company at San. Fran
cisco: "If the Bhortago is equally severe
how are we able to purchase for ship
ment from Eureka, Willits Bay points,
Oakland and Pittsburg the same lum
ber as has waited on our sidetracks 00
days for equipment, sad have ship
ments made in 41 hours to 72 hours,
83 per cent of which are on Southern
Pacifie carst" - '
California Said to Be Favored.
The purport of this telegram was to
show that the Southern Pacific is able
to make deliveries from the stations
named, all of which are in California,
in two or three days, while it takes 00
days to make like deliveries from Ore
gon. Mr. Wentworth explained that the
mill at Mabel now ia carrying a stock
of 9,000,000 feet as a direct result of the
shortage. A stock of 3,000,000 feet
would be normal.
S. B. Cobb, manager of the Standard
Box ft Lumber company at Scofield,
said thst his plant has been suffering
severely. The normal demand of the
mill is four ears a dav. The actual de
liveries were 8.1 ears ia June, SO in
July aud 54 in August. The plan1 has
been forced to operate on only part
time, much to the dissatisfa-tioa ni the
owners and its employes.
Au excess stock of 7.000.000 feet now
is on hand, and much of tha will be
