Editor Aberdeen American,
Dear Sir:—
The. lumber schedule of the bill
the ways and means committee has
just reported-is a profound disap
pointment to the lumber consumer.
While the duty on rough lumber
is reduced from (2 to (1 the duty
on finished lumber in all forms is
left so high as remain prohibitive.
Rough lum'jer owing to transpor
tation charges cannot be imported
into the United States aicep.t where
water transportation i». available.
Consequently the reduction on
rcugh lumber i«i Ol nc bene^t what
ever to the farmers and other con
sumers In tUe great Interior coun
Finished lumber can be imported
because of the saving in railway
rates as compared with, rough lum
ber If the tariff permit it but as
proposed it does not permit it
About ninety per eent of the lum
ber shipped from a mill by rail goes
throug the planing mill before it 1b
put on the cars.
About tihe same percentage of the
lumber sold at a retail lumber yard
Is planed or finished in some meas
ure. That is to say, the ordinary
consumer of lumber buys finished
lumber almost entirely.
And the lumber schedule as draft
ed makes it impossible for him to
get this lumber from abroad. There
fore, he will be entirely dependent
on domestic supplies as before.
This is the kind of revision that
may fool, but will not benefit.
Every congressman ^ho wants to
help his constituents to get cheaper
lumber should insist on fret lum
ber, both rough and finished.
Failing in that he should insist
that finished lumber which is what
his average constituent buys shall
not be taxed more than rough lum
ber, which Is what the average con
stituent does not buy.
.Very truly yours,
