A total computed lumber cut for the United States in 1917 of 35,831.000 feet is announced by the Forest Ser vice. This figure is -based on reports received up to May 15, from 16,408 sawmills out of the 24.815 believed to have operated last year. It is estimat ed that the actual cut in 1917, on the basis of compiled figures was approxi mately iu per cent less than the pro duction in 1916. The falling off in lumber production during the past year is attributed principally to largely decreased pri vate building operations, the scarcity of labor in connection with smalT op erationS, transportation difficulties. curtailment of demand on the .part of wood-using industries, and a more ev less general dislocation of lumber dis tribution through ordinary channels of trade. A considerable portion of the total quantity produced was utilized in meeting the exceptional demands for Government construction and other war emergency projects, including ship material. The State of Washington was again the largest producer, with a lumber cut of 4,570.900,000 feet; Louisiana was second with 4,210.000.000 feet, and Oregon third with 2.585,000,000 feeU crowding lnta the fourth position Mis sissippi with a cut of 2,425,000,000 feet Southern yellow plhe, with a total of 13,539,464,000 feet, forms 37.7 per cent of the total cut. Douglas fir, its nearest competitor, is credited with 5,585,000.000 feet. White oak and white pine are each credited with 2,250,000,000 feet. The number of mills in operation re porting in 1917 was smaller than for the two preceding years. A comparison of the computed cut ror 1H17 with the total cut of the prev ious year in the larger producing reg ions shows a decrease of about 10 per cent in the southern yellow pine group of states, a decrease of 23 per cent in the North Carolina pine group, and a decrease of 11 per cent in the Lake States. On the other hand there was an Increase in production of 3 per cent Due to various causes incidental to The annual convention of the Scot tish Chiefs' Association of Rhode It land was held in Westerly Saturday.
