TRADE TURN DOWN ORDERS Lumber Stocks Inadequate to Fill . • Them. wjTrr- | . .- _\ PINE FAMINE IS DEVELOPING Local Cooperage Situation Showing Jllore Activity—Red Cedar Advancing. . Th© market on white pine lumber shows a Btrong tune throughout the list. During the past fortnight it has developed that lumber manufacturers are turning down many orders through sheer inability to fill them. ' They cannot procure supplies from other- sources, conforming to certain specifications, and their own yards are bare of them. In one particu lar instance it is noted that a firm received orders aggregating over fifty cars in a single day. Of these orders M per cent were turned down, because the required lumber was not available. The active demand during the first half of December, aggregating at least 4,000,000 leet more than during the came period a year ago, has developed the white pine lumber famine much more rapidly than was expected and shortages to-day are an Important item in filling nearly all current orders. '* • - Selects, siding and lath seem to be the strongest items on the list this week. Prac- ally all manufacturers in this valley are short, and many In the Wisconsin valley are unable to meet the demand. Dimension probably conies next. Under this heading may be mentioned 2x4, 2x6, ixs in 12, 14, It; and IS-foot lengths, and it is very difficult to supply the demand. In boards, No. 1 and >■" . 2 are short In many yards and movement continues free. Boards above No. S are the best property at this -writing they have ever been. Flooring Is coming In for more con sideration and stocks are being cleaned up rapidly. Since the first of December there has been a more, active demand than before, comparatively speaking, owing to the large amount of Interior finishing being done on buildings constructed during the summer. Fencing Is also on a strong basis. While local manufacturers have been noted for th( con eervatlsm in making price changes, there is already an impression In some quarters that prices are too low on some descriptions, con sidering supply and demand and condition of stocks. Lumber Stronger Statistically. Statistically white pine holds a stronger position than it did Dec. J. It is evident that shipments for the year by rail from Wisconsin and Minnesota points will be fully 20 per cent ahead of 19ij<>. This means an aggregate Increase of 385,000,000 to 400.000,900 feet in the movement for the year, against which there; has been an increase in production of barely j 200.000.000 feet, and it is doubtful If final j statistics will make the showing as large as this. Of the lumber sold this year 175,000,000 to 200,000,000 feet has been drawn from the surplus on hand a year ago, and the surplus Stocks have been depleted to just that extent. I Statistically H ie very evident that white I pine is stronger to-day than it has ever been In the history of the northwest as a lumber producing section. Cooperage l'roducts More Active. Cooperage is showing more activity this •week. Shops have exhausted supplies under olj contracts and are buying freely to meet current requtremente. Prices for material are generally on a firmer basis, and move ment is in better volume. Heading is bring ing about 5Vi cents and is held firm.

Mar ket on patent hoops is also stronger and is lepresented by quotations $email@example.com. Demand for barrels is heavy. Red Cedar Products Higher. edar products have developed a strong- j er tone, owing to the possibility that west | '"oast mills will close down soon, and also In auso orders arc in advance of production.

Boston, Mass., Dec. There is a strong and steady tone to the wool market. There is steady demand for supplies, and while no large lots are being cleaned up there is enough call to keep prices strong.

She was finally successful, and thought she had a proper bond. The last train had departed, and, notwithstanding that the temperature was about 20 below zero, she determined to drive to Sioux Falls, a dis- J tance of-about thirty-five miles. This she did, thus making a journey which would have taxed the endurance of the most ro bust man. She arrived in Sioux Falls at about 11 o'clock at night in a half-frozen condition, and immediately went to the jail. Her disappointment can be imagined upon being informed by the sheriff that he could not recognize the bond until it had been passed upon by the proper offi cials. When the state's attorney exam ined the bond it was found to contain some irregularities which invalidated it.. After some running around the defect was remedied and the young lady had the j pleasure of seeing her father at liberty.! ! His trial this week will be presided over by Judge Gaffy of the Pierre circuit, who will come to Sioux Falls for the purpose,' the defendant having asked for some: Judge from another circuit. :. ■ Sculped by a Kicking; Home.

BOOM FOR COAST GRAIN Lit rife Quantities -Being: Shipped for* EuHtern ,' Consumption! '" Portland, Oregon, Dec. 18. —About 1,000, --000' bushels of barley, 350,000 of wheat, and perhaps 100,000 of oats from the Co lumbia valley will find a market in the east this season. Most of the oats will go to Colorado. One-of the factors in the movement of the grain i s a reduction in the rate from 90 cents to 60 cents per 100 pounds. .Much of the wheat goes to the manufacturers of cereal food prepara tions. The shortage of the wheat crop of Utah made It necessary for that state to look to the Columbia valley for its supply and a rate of 4.". cents per 100 pounds was made for that movement. The most notable feature of this sea sou's grain shipment to the eastward is the barley.. The crop in the Columbia basin this year is exceedingly fine quality for brewing. The big brewing centers of the east—Milwaukee, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha and other cities—became aware of the excellence of the northwestern barley early in the season and began placing orders for sup plies.

El w ANOTHER PRODUCING OIL COMPANY. Before July Ist, 1902, the United States Fuel Oil company, of St. Paul, Minn., ex pect to have a daily capacity in the Beau mont oil field of 225,000 barrels. W. J. Sturm, one of the most reliable drillers in the Beaumont field, has secured the contract for bringing in three guaranteed six-inch gushers for this new company, on their Spindle Top property, in block 32, on Spindle Top avenue. This property is surrounded by'the largest producing wells in the Beaumont field, including the Heywood wells, Higgins, Guffey & Galey, Lucas, Beatty, Star and Crescent, Na tional Oil and Pipe Line, Gladys City. Yellow Pine and Hogg-Swain. There is no doubt but the United States Fuel Oil company, of St. Paul, will have three of the best producing wells in the entire field. This company has done more than many other -companies, as it has com pleted arrangements with the Higgins Oil company for rights over all Its pipe lines, and arrangements for transportation for all its output. The company's holdings are all held in fee simple, being two lots in block 32, Spindle Top; 12& acres in the Bullock & Brown survey, adjoining the city limits of Beaumont; 20 acres at Alvin, near the Thomas well; 50 acres at High Island, adjoining the depot and near the Big Four well; 10 acres at Sour Lake, near Guffy property; 100 acres In Liberty coun ty. Also lot 1, In block S, crowa of High island. ft M Considering its three guaranteed wells, its valuable Spindle Top property, and its diversified holdings in outside territory, together with its small capitalization, its perfect facilities for handling its oil (m«vle with one of, the largest companie3 in t!\e south) makes this company a much-talked about business proposition. The officers and directors are among the best known business men in the north west, and of Beaumont. The capital stock is $300,000; main office, 144-146 Endicott building, St. Paul, Minnesota.—National Oil Reporter, New York.
