OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
timber Industries in the South Shows
A Large Increase for the Last
Iy James S. McCarthy.
Washington, May 15.-The lumber
idustry of the south is one of great
ud increasing impIortance. Accord
:ig to official information the value
f t.he hIliiier products of that sce
iou has increased from $39,000,000
i 1880, to $260,000,000 in 1906. The
Atest statistics if lumber shipments
>tlished by the Bureau of Statis
ies in the Department of Commerce
nd Labor, show that the total ship
ients from Sout.hern Itumber terri
ory -during the ten months ending
letober 31, 1905, amounted to 3,076,
'89,067 feet, against 1,837,464,057
e"t for the corresponding ten months
n 1903. When it is considered that
he price of Southern lumber has
oeon steadily inereasing since 1896
nd is now fully 100 per cent above
he level of .that year it will be seen
hat this industry must be very pro
itable notwithstanding slight ad
,an6es in freight rates. from the
leorgia and Mississippi yellow pine
listricts amounting to about 18 per
ent and restoring only a part of the
-eduetion made in 1893 and subse
tuent years, when the lumber busi

Lepression,. Inasmuch as there has

Advances in freight rates it is inter
sting to point out that they are very
mall in comparison with the advance
n the price of lumber and that they
L not seem to have interfered iwth
to distribution in widely separated
ifarkets. This is ndicated by the
arge ancrease in shipments shown by
he.. "reau: 0okSttistios and by the
!ollowing quotation from the bulle
in of that bureau:
"Shipments of yellow pine from
