CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

It  is  difficult  to  give  a  statement  of  the 
lumber  market  that  will  show  the  true 
situation,  but  it  may  be  said  with  certain- 
ty that  the  tendency  of  white  pine  prices 
is  upwards.    Very  few  manufacturers  are 
now  issuing  price  lists,  for  the  reason 
that   they  have  not  sufficient  stock  to 
offer.    Almost  every  grade  is  well  sold 
out,  the  heaviest  stocks,  perhaps,  being 
in  mill  culls  and  common  pine  plank. 
Prices  of  the  higher  grades  have  shown  a 
wide  fluctuation  during  the    past  two 
weeks,  as  some  manufacturers  are  ap- 
parently   more  impressed  than  others 
with  the  scarcity  of  these  grades,  and  are 
asking     correspondingly  higher  prices. 
This  is  also  true  in  respect  to  lath  and 
shingles,  as  is  demonstrated  by  the  fact 
that  an  Ottawa  valley  manufacturer  is 
asking  $3.50  for  No.  1  lath  at  the  mill. 
This  figure,  however,  does  not  represent 
the  average  market  quotation.    There  is 
considerable  inquiry  for  stock  for  future 
delivery,  and  the  trade  are  inclined  to 


the  opinion  that  prices  next  season  will 
be  fully  as  high  as  in  1901. 

In  hardwoods  there  has  been  some  im- 
provement. Carload  shipments  of  elm, 
birch  and  maple  to  the  United  States  are 
being  regularly  made  by  manufacturers 
in  the  Wiarton  district,  and  it  is  said  that 
the  inspection  has  not  been  as  severe  as 
last  vear,  thus  indicating  a  stronger  mar- 
ket. It  is  now  certain  that  fewer  hard- 
wood logs  will  be  taken  out  this  season 
than  last  winter,  as  millmen  are  begin- 
ning to  realize  that  it  is  more  profitable 
to  leave  the  timber  on  the  stump  than  it 
is  to  sell  it  as  lumber  when  prices  are  low 
and  inspection  hard. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

Late  report  from  the  eastern  provinces 
seem  to  show  that  conditions  are  quite 
favorable  for  spruce  lumber.    Stocks  in 
most  districts  are  below  what  they  were 
one  year  ago,  while  enquiries  for  next 
year's  cut  are  quite  numerous.  South 
American   specifications    are  much  in 
favor,  and  if  the  demand  should  continue 
large  shipments  will  be  made  to  that 
country  next  season.  Full  prices  are  being 
asked  and  will  no  doubt  be  obtained,  as 
the  log  supply  is  likely  to  be  small  and 
insufficient  to  keep  the  mills  at  work 
throughout  the  season.     Cedar  shingles 
continue  strong,  on  the  basis  of  $3.30  for 
extras,  Boston  delivery.    Ocean  freights 
have  fallen   and    are  dull,   while  rajl 
fieights  to  the  United  States  rule  high. 
MANITOBA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 
The  lumber  movement  at  the  present 
time   is   confined    largely  to  finishing 
material.    This  is  comparatively  large,  as 
building  operations  in  Winnipeg  during 
the  past  year  were  on  an  extensive  scale. 
There  is  a  good  outlook  for  next  spring, 
as  retail  dealers  are  not  heavily  stocked. 
British   Columbia  mills  continue  busy. 
Several  vessels  are  loading  at  Chemainus 
for  Australia.     The  freight  market  has 
strengthened  considerably,  the  rate  be- 
ing fully  three  shillings  higher  than  six 
weeks  ago.    There  is  an  exceptionally 
strong  demand  for  cedar  logs.  More 
camps  than  usual  are  at  work,  and  a  scar- 
city of  men  is  reported.  It  is  feared  that 
there  will  be  a  break  in  the  shingle  mar- 
ket owing    to  the  increased  production 
resulting  from  the  several  new  mills  about 
to  be  put  into  operation. 

UNITED  STATES. 
The  holiday  season  has  curtailed  the 
lumber  demand,  but  the  market  has  lost 
none  of  its  strength.    On  the  other  hand, 


Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition. 


January  i,  1902 


the  year  closes  with  high  prices  and  the 
outlook  favorable  for  a  continuation  ot  a 
firm  and  advancing  market.  This  applies 
to  almost  every  class  of  lumber,  with  white 
pine  occupying  the  first  position.  The 
upper  grades  are  so  scarce  that  it  is  im- 
possible to  find  a  sufficient  quantity  to 
meet  the  requirements  of  the  market, 
while  the  lower  grades  are  gradually  be- 
coming stronger.  It  is  reported  that  in 
Tonawanda  prices  of  the  lower  qualities 
have  recently  been  advanced  quite  sharply, 
and  dealers  are  predicting  a  further  ad- 
vance on  some  items  within  the  next 
month.  It  is  estimated  that  Chicago 
dealers  who  heretofore  bought  most  of 
their  stock  at  Duluth  and  Ashland  have 
purchased  at  least  one  hundred  million 
feet  of  white  pine  lumber  at  interior  mills 
to  be  shipped  to  their  yards  next  season. 
In  Cleveland  dealers  are  asking  an  ad- 
vance of  from  $1  to  $2  a  thousand  on  se- 
lects, fine  common  and  No.  1  and  No.  2 
shop.  Numerous  enquiries  are  in  the 
market  for  hemlock  lumber.  The  base 
price  in  New  York  is  now  established  at 
$15,  while  during  the  last  week  prices 
have  advanced  in  North  Tonawanda 
until  some  items  are  selling  at  the  base 
price  of  $16  and  as  high  as  $17  in  a  few 
instances.  The  hardwood  market  con- 
tinues to  show  a  fair  degree  of  activity. 
There  is  a  good  demand  for  basswood, 
elm,  and  black  ash.  At  a  meeting  of  the 
Chicago  Hardwood  Lumber  Exchange 
held  last  week,  discussion  revealed  the 
fact  that  firsts  and  seconds  basswood, 
birch  and  ash  were  extremely  scarce,  also 
that  many  of  the  dealers  were  selling 
some  varieties  of  lumber  at  less  than  they 
could  be  replaced.  Accordingly,  ad- 
vances were  decided  upon. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 
As  usual  at  this  period  of  the  year,  the 
business  doing  in  lumber  is  of  a  quiet 
character,  yet  the  British  market  seems 
to  be  breaking  away  from  the  weakness 
and  uncertainty  which  characterized  it 
through  the  greater  part  of  the  past  year. 
Some  shippers  have  not  yet  submitted 


their  price  lists  for  next  season.  The 
question  now  seems  to  be  how  much 
higher  piices  will  go  for  the  first-open- 
water  stocks.  This  is  particularly  the 
case  in  respect  to  Canadian  lumber, 
which  is  showing  marked  strength.  Con- 
siderable quantities  of  spruce  deals  are 
said  to  have  been  bought  for  next  year 
at  high  figures,  but  even  if  freights  can 
be  obtained  at  the  present  rates,  which 
are  exiremely  low,  the  opening  prices  are 
not  likely  to  be  below  those  now  ruling- 
The  stock  of  spruce  in  all  the  United 
Kingdom  ports  is  abnormally  low,  espe- 
cially in  Liverpool  and  the  Bristol  Chan- 
nel. A  very  light  stock  of  11x3  and  9 
x  3  is  held.  While  pine  deals  are  in 
heavier  stock  than  spruce,  they  are  rapidly 
going  into  consumption.  The  stock  of 
waney  pine  is  very  small  and  the  prices 
asked  for  next  season's  production  are  said 
to  be  the  highest  ever  known.  The  Im- 
porters Section  of  the  Timber  Trade 
Federation  took  no  action  at  their  meet- 
ing last  week  regarding  prices,  on  the 
ground  that  it  was  not  practicable  to  pass 
a  resolution  '  defining  any  particular 
course. 


SOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

John  Jamieson  expects  to  have  half  a

field,  N-B.,  in  the  spring. 

The  city  of  Winnipeg  is  asking  for

LAKE  OF  THE  WOODS  DISTRICT. 

A  correspondent  writes  The  Canada 
LUMBERMAN  regarding  lumbering  opera- 
tions in  the  Lake  of  the  Woods  district  as 
follows  : 

Lumbering  operations  in  this  district 
are  much  greater  this  season  than  here- 
tofore. The  large  crop  in  Manitoba  has 
stimulated  the  lumber  business,  and  I  am 
looking  forward  to  next  season  being  the 
most  active  in  our  history.  There  will  be 
cut  about  35  million  feet,  board  measure, 
of  saw  logs.  Labor  is  in  good  demand 
and  very  fair  wages  are  being  paid.  The 
Canadian  Pacific  Railway  Company  has 
let  contracts  for  one  and  one-quarter 
million  ties  and  about  10,000  piles  and 
one-quarter  million  fence  posts.  This  is 
much  in  excess  of  former  contracts  and 
points  to  railway  construction  in  the 
west.  The  Northern  Railway  Company 
has  let  contracts  for  one-quarter  million 
ties  and  a  large  quantity  of  telegraph 
poles  and  fence  posts.  The  Northern 
Railway,  or  what  is  known  as  the  Rainy 
River  Railway,  is  going  to  open  up  a 
large  territory,  well  covered  with  all 
kinds  of  timber.  There  is  a  large  portion 
of  the  territory  on  which  no  pine  timber 
has  been  cut,  and  I  have  no  doubt  that 
the  lime  is  approaching  when  it  will  be 
sold,  as  the  danger  from  fire  is  so  great 
along  the  line  of  the  railway  that  it 
necessitates  the  disposal  of  the  timber  in 
close  proximity  to  the  line. 

There  is  a  demand  for  timber  of  less 
value  than  heretofore,  by  reason  of  con- 
nection with  Winnipeg.  Cord  wood  along 
the  valley  of  the  Rainy  River  is  now 
worth  $2.50,  with  a  large  demand. 


scarce.  Good  strips  and  shorts  are  also 
about  sold  out,  and  the  same  may  be  said 
°f  1  lAs  '  'A  and  2  inch  sidings  Nearly  all 
this  stock  has  passed  into  third  hands, 
albeit  the  builder  and  other  consumers. 

Circulars  sent  from  a  leading  mill  on 
Monday  quoted  prices  suggestive  of  the 
Klondyke.  The  prices  at  the  mill  ran  as 
follows:  No.  1  while  pine  lath,  $3,50; 
No.  2  ditto,  $3.25  ;  No.  1  red  pine  lath, 
$3.25;  No.  2  ditto,  $3.00.  Ilisa  question 
whether  these  prices  can  be  obtained. 
Prices  already  quoted  rule  in  other  lines. 
Everything  points  to  an  upward  movement, 
however,  as  the  available  stocks  are  small. 

Reports  from  the  limits  go  to  show  that 
the  weather  conditions  are  now  more 
favorable  then  they  were  earlier  in  the 
season.  All  the  larger  lates  are  fit  for 
traffic  and  recent  thaws  have  improved 
the  roads. 

Mr.  T.  C.  Elmitt,  of  the  firm  of  Hurd-

will  be  entered  by  Mr.  Alexander  Fraser, 
defendant  in  the  celebratd  suit  of  De- 
zouche  vs.  Frasei .  Judge  Leavergue  gave 
an  order  calling  from  defendant  a  state- 
ment of  proceedsof  sale  of  limits  owned  by 
the  firm  of  Frazer  &  McCoshan;  the  latter 
was  Mrs.  Dezouche's  first  husband.  The 
limits  were  sold  after  his  death.  Proceed- 
ings were  instituted  by  the  widow  to  de- 
termine what  share  if  any  her  children, 
the  minor  heirs  of  McCoshan;  were  en- 
titled to.    About  $500  is  involved-

Available  stocks  are  scarce  and  prices

ness about  Jan.  5th.  At  present  all  hands

New  Mill  Erected  1901. 


Capacity  100  Million  a  Year. 


Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  ^'a  beaP  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  in  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  know  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  Substantial,  carefully  COnStFUCted,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closes  at  the  end  of  this  year.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  ppompt  attention. 

We  want  our  share  of  your  shingle  business,  and  can  guarantee 
your  satisfaction  in  evePy  particular.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

Spruce  lumber  Boston  is  in  the  steady, 
quiet  demand  that  is  almost  always  in- 
cident to  this  particulai  season.  Perhaps 
it  is  fortunate  that  the  demoralization  of 
the  mills  along  the  Maine  rivers  by  the  re- 
cent freshet  came  at  this  particular  seas- 
on, when  the  demand  for  spruce  is  very 
quiet.  As  it  is,  the  demand  is  very  small 
here, while  it  is  also  true  that  a  big  demand 
could  not  be  taken  care  of  by  the  mills  : 
Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20;  9  inch 
and  under,  $18  to  $18.50;  10  and  12  inch, 
random  lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19  to 
$19.50;  2x3,  2x4,  2x5,  2x6,  2x7,  and  3x4, 
10  feet  and  up,  $16.50;  all  other  randoms, 
9  inch  and  under,  10  feet  and  up,  $17.50; 
5  inch  and  up,  merchantable  boards,  $15 
to  $16;  matched  boards,  $17.50  to  $18.50; 
out  spruce  boards,  $12.50  to  $13;  bundle 
furring,  $16  to  $17. 

Western  pine  increases  in  firmness,  un- 
der the  supply  steadily  growing  less. 
Business  is  seasonably  quiet  :  Uppers,  1 
inch,  $70  to  $72;  2  1-2  and  3  inch,  $75;  4 
inch,  $80;  selects,  1  to  1  1-2  inch,  $63  to 
$65;  2  inch,  $65  to  $67.50;  2  1-2  to  3  inch, 
$72  to  $75;  4  inch,  $75  to  $80;  fine  com-

2  inch  $55,  2  1-2  to  3  inch,  $63  to  $65;  4 
inch,  $70;  barn  boards,  $2-5  to  $32;  coffin 
boards-,  $25  to  $28. 

Hardwood  lumber  is  steady  in  prices, 
with  the  demand  steady,  of  moderate  pro- 
portions :  One  inch,  whitewood,  $38  to 
$40;  thicker,  $39  to  $42;  %  inch,  $30  to 
$35;  saps,  inch,  $25  to  $30;  common,  $23 
to  $25;  quartered  oak,  $56  to  $65;  fancy, 
$70  to  $75;  plain  oak,  $40  to  $47;  black 
ash,  $40  to  $50;  white  ash,  $45  to  $55; 
cherry,  $90  to  $130;  maple,  $32*10  $40." 

Shingles  continue  scarce,  with  the  mar- 
ket firm,  though  the  demand  is  small  : 
Kxtra  cedar,  $3.25  to  $3.30;  clear,  $2.85 
to  $2.95;  second  clear,  $2.30  to  $2.35; 
sap,  $2. 15  to  $2.25;  extra  No  1,  $1.75  to 
$1.85;  Washington  and  British  Columbia, 
16  in,  five  butts  to  2  ins,  $3.40  to  $3.50. 

Clapboards  are  still  scarce  and  firm,  but 
the  demand  is  small  :  Extra  spruce,  $32  to 
$33  ;  clear,  $30  to  $31  ;  second  clear,  $27 
to  $28  ;  "extra  No.  1,  $18  to  $20;  pine 
extra,  $48  to  $50  ;  clear,  $43  to  $45  ; 
second  clear  $38  to  $40. 

Laths  are  quiet  and  unchanged  :  One 
and  five-eighth  inch,  $3.15;  1  1-2  in,  $3.10.

owned  by  W.  W.  Carter,  together  with 
200  piles  of  lumber,  was  totally  destroyed 
by  fire  on  January  1st.  The  mill  alone 
was  worth  about  $25,000. 


CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

Business  for  the  week  in  white  pine 
lumber  has  been  satisfactory.  Retail 
dealers  report  some  buying  for  immedi- 
ate requirements,  while  a  feature  of  whole- 
sale trade  is  the  inquiry  for  stock  for  future 
delivery,  an  indication  that  the  supply  of 
lumber  in  the  hands  of  retailers  and  con- 
sumers is  light.  Some  of  the  largest 
manufacturers  have  sold  a  considerable 
portion  of  the  coming  season's  cut,  while 
practically  all  the  British  specifications 
of  the  Ottawa  valley  mills  have  been  con- 
tracted for.  There  has  been  a  slight  im- 
provement in  red  pine,  which  suffered 
during  the  past  two  years  from  over  pro- 
duction and  from  severe  competition  lrom 
spruce  and  Baltic  timber.  Occasionally 
a  report  is  heard  that  mill  culls  are  slow 
of  sale,  but  in  view  of  the  strength  of 
other  grades,  this  weakness  is  likely  to  be 
only  te  nporary  ul  to  ba  relieved  as  the 
spring  season  is  approached.  The  ex- 
pected small  production  of  hardwood  logs 
this  winter  is  having  an  effect  upon  that 
class  of  lumber,  and  the  feeling  is  more 
confident  than  it  has  been  for  some  time 
The  quantity  of  hemlock  and  cedar  logs 
taken  out  this  winter  is  likely  10  be 
slightly  above  the  average. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

No.  2  spruce  boards  and  spruce  lath 
represent  the  chief  lumber  moving  in 
the  eastern  provinces.  Shingles  are  in 
good  demand,  but  the  supply  is  short.  No 
further  advance  in  prices  has  as  yet  taken 
place,  although  there  are  indications  in 
that  direction.  The  statement  of  stocks 
wintering  at  Quebec,  recently  compiled, 
makes  a  most  favorable  showing  in  nearly 
all  classes  of  timber.  The  stock  of  pine 
deals  is  very  small,  while  that  of  spruce 
deals  is  little  more  than  one-half  that  of 
last  year.  The  export  of  square  and 
waney  pine  was  2,317,443  cubic  feet, 
leaving  the  stock  over  350,000  feet  less 
than  one  year  ago.  Of  oak  the  stock  is 
only  126,000  feet,  which  is  less  than  half 
the  wintering  stock  of  last  year.  The 
export  of  birch  during  theyearwas  heavy, 
and  leaves  the  supply  almost  exhausted. 
The  situation  in  elm  is  different,  owing  to 
a  heavy  production  of  that  timber.  There 
was  received  at  the  port  of  Quebec  1,- 
023,372  feet,  the  export  was  548,869  feet, 
and  the  stock  wintering  is  594,922  feet. 
The  outlook  for  this  timber,  in  view  of 
the  heavy  stock,  is  not  very  promising, 
although  a  very  small  quantity  is  being 
taken  out  this  winter,  which  will  permit 


of  the  presert  surplus  being  reduced. 
Altogether,  the  outlook  is  favorable  for 
firm  prices  next  season.  Lumbermen  in 
the  Maritime  Provinces  report  numerous 
enquiries  for  stock,  and  anticipate  a  large 
demand  from  the  United  States. 

MANITOBA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 

While  the  retail  demand  for  lumber  in 
the  west  is  small  at  the  present  time, 
operations  in  the  woods  are  being  con- 
ducted on  an  extensive  scale.  Laige 
contracts  for  railway  ties  have  been 
given  out,  and  more  men  are  at  work  in 
the  Lake  of  the  Woods  district  than  in 
any  previous  season.  The  interest  of 
British  Columbia  lumbermen  is  centied 
in  the  proposal  of  the  British  Columbia 
Lumber  and  Shingle  Manufacturers' 
Association  to  adopt  a  schedule  of  prices 
to  apply  locally  and  as  far  east  as 
Manitoba.  Owing  to  the  keenness  of  com- 
petition, cutting  of  prices  has  been  in. 
dulged  in  to  some  extent  in  the  past,  and 
consequently  the  business  has  not  been 
profitable.  Manufacturers  hope  by 
working  together  to  bring  about  better 
conditions  in  the  trade.  It  will  also  be 
the  aim  .to  limit  the  production, 
especially  of  shingles,  as  the  total 
mill  capacity  is  much  in  ex. 
cess  of  the  consumption.  A  rumor 
is  current  that  an  effort  is  to  be  made  to 
combine  all  the  mills  on  the  Pacific  coast 
doing  an  export  trade.  The  report,  how- 
ever, is  not  confirmed  at  time  of  going  to 
press. 

UNITED  STATES. 
But  for  the  car  shortage  the  movement 
of  lumber  in  the  United  States  would  be 
much  heavier.  The  activity  is  remark- 
able for  the  season  of  the  year,  and  augurs 
well  for  a  brisk  spring  demand.  Reports 
from  the  east  tell  of  a  very  strong  maiket 
for  white  pine.  Our  Buffalo  list  this 
week  shows  an  advance  of  $2  per  thous- 
and in  all  grades  of  uppers  and  selects, 
and  of  about  one  dollar  on  several  items 
of  fine  common  and  cutting  up  stocks. 
The  scarcity  of  the  higher  grades  is  such 
that  dealers  are  not  anxious  to  sell  at 
present  quotations.  There  is  no  weak- 
ness at  any  point.  Saginaw  buyers  have 
secured  over  150,000,000  feet  of  stock  al- 
ready at  outside  points,  which  is  to  be 
taken  to  the  yards  there  during  the  com- 
ing season.  Better  things  are  expected 
for  hardwoods  in  the  near  future.  Stocks 
are  becoming  reduced  and  will  be  light 
when  the  new  cut  is  ready  for  the  market. 
The  better  feeling  at  Buffalo  has  resulted 
n  an  advance  in  the  price  of  thick  ash

and  of  white  birch  and  sofi  maple.  A 
temporary  falling  off  in  the  demand  for 
shingles  is  reported,  due  to  the  holiday 
season.  Prices,  however,  continue  un- 
changed. Lath  is  moving  liberally.  At 
Cleveland  No.  1  white  pine  brings  $4  ; 
No.  2,  $3.  so  ;  and  No.  1  hemlock,  $3  to 
$3.25. 


SOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

The  log  cut  on  the  Restig-ouche  river,  in 
New  Brunswick,  this  winter  is  estimated 
at  30,000,000  feet,  or  5,000,000  feet  short 
of  last  winter. 

Mill  owners  at  St.  John,  N.  B.,  expect 
to  g-et  higher  prices  for  spruce  deals  than 
they  did  last  year,  and  are  talking  of  $13 
for  city  cut  deals,  with  the  product  of 
small  country  mills  50  cents  to  $1  less. 

The  strength  of  hemlock  lumber  is 
responsible  for  a  rumor  that  a  further 
advance  in  price  is  to  be  made  by  manu- 
facturers. The  present  base  price  at 
Buffalo  is  $13.50.  It  is  claimed  that  if 
the  price  should  be  further  advanced  it 
will  shut  off  the  building  of  frame  houses 
and  injure  all  classes  of  building. 

F.  E.  Neale's  circular  of  lumber  ship- 
ments from  Miramichi  and  Campbelltown 
for  the  season  of  1901  shows  that  13 
vessels  were  loaded  at  Campbelltown, 
carrying  a  total  of  11,349,038  superficial 
feet,  and  that  29  vessels  sailed  from  Mira- 
michi, with  a  total  of  44,493,334  feet.  The 
above  shipments  were  made  by  Mr.  Neale, 
representing  Frank  Harrison  &  Company, 
of  Liverpool,  Eng, 

Michigan  firms  operating  in  Ontario 
this  winter  expect  to  bank  a  full  supply  of 
logs.  W.  &  A.  McArlhur  Co.,  of  Little 
Current,  will  have  a  stock  of  about 
30,000,000  feet  ;  Spanish  River  Lumber 
Co.,  about  20,000,000  feet  ;  Eddy  Bros.  & 
Co.,  and  the  Michigan  Land  &  Lumber 
Co.,  of  Blind  River,  about  40,000,000 
feet  ;  The  Moulthrop  Lumber  Co.,  John's 
Island,  18,000,000  feet  ;  Arthur  Hill  Co., 
Midland,  15,000,000  feet  ;  Holland  & 
Emery  Co.,  Byng  Inlet,  40,000,000  feet  ; 
while.Pitts  &  Charlton,  of  Little  Current, 
and  the  William  Peter  Estate,  of  Parry 
bound,  are  calculating  upon  a  full  output. 

Concerning  the  Barbadoes  lumber  mar- 
ket Messrs  S.  P.  Musson,  Son  &  Com- 
pany, under  date  of  September  21st,  say  : 
The  "Lewanika"  arrived  on  December 
7th  from  Hantsport,  N.S.,  with  308,000 
feet  white  pine  lumber  and  38,000  feet 
spruce.  On  the  10th  inst.  the  "Edna" 
arrived,  with  106,000  feet  white  pine,  1 74,- 
000  feet  spruce  and  75,000  feet  hemlock, 
which  had  been  contracted  for;  and  on  the 
18th  the  "  Kipling,"  from  Bridgewater, 
N.S.,  arrived  with  85,000  feet  white  pine 
shippers  and  95,000  feet  refuse,  which  has 
been  sold  at  $23. 1 1  and  $19.11  respect- 
ively; second  quality,  $17. 1 1.  In'spruce 
no  other  arrivals  have  taken  place,  but  we 
have  a  cargo  contracted  for  on  the  way, 
and  have  also  placed  ^ajnearby  cargo, ^to 
arrive, *at*$  19  round.  We _ao  not  think 
that  prices  of  either  white  pine  or  spruce 


can  be  maintained  if  further  arrivals  take 
place,  unless  the  neighboring  islands  are 
in  a  position  to  lake  some  lumber,  as  the 
dealers  are  all  supplied  with  contracl 
cargoes.  No  further  receipts  of  shingles 
have  taken  place.  We  have  sold  a  quan- 
tity of  laying  at  $1,70  to  $1.75.  Claire- 
monl,  Man  &  Company  report  that  Gaspe 
long  cedar  shingles  are  wanted  at  $4.40  to 
$4.75  as  to  quality,  and  that  a  spot  sale 
of  cedar  laying  has  been  made  at  $1.90. 

While  Chicago  assortments  are  in  the 
main  fairly  balanced  and  stocks  at  the 
majority  of  the  yards  are  practically  as 
he  »vy  as  at  the  opening  of  last  year,  the 
American  Lumberman  says  there  is  a 
most  pronounced  scarcity  of  several  sizes 
of  piece  stuff  and  boards.  In  the  former 
2x1 2s  and  3x12s  and  2x10s  and  3x10s  in 
the  short  lengths  are  among  the  scarcest 
and  most  desirable  items  wanted.  Any- 
thing in  piece  stuff  over  18-foot  is  also  in 
low  supply.  Some  of  the  recent  prices 
f.  o.  b.  cars  are  as  follows  :  2x12 — 10,  12 
and  20,  $19,50  ;  2x12—14,  '6  and  18,  $19; 
2x10-12  and  18,  $17;  2x12-14  and  16, 
$16.50;  3x12-12,  14  and  18,  $19.50; 
3x12-16,  $19  ;  3x12-20,  $20.50.  Eight- 
inch,  No.  1  stock  boards,  20  to  16-foot, 
$21  ;  10-inch  No.  1  stock  boards,  10  and 
12-foot,  $22  ;  14  and  16-foot,  $21  ;  12-inch 
No.  1  stock  boards,  10  and  12-foot,  $25  ;

10  and  12-foot,  $22  ;  14  and  16-foot,  $21  ;

promiscuous  widths  $20  ;  No.  2  boards 
$19.  Shingles,  extra  *A*  white  pine,  $3  ;

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

The  outlook  for  spruce  lumber  at 
Boston  is  very  firm,  though  trade  is 
limited  at  present.  Quotations  are  un- 
changed :  10  aud  12  inch  dimensions, $20  ; 
9-inch  and  under,  $18  to  $18.50  ;  10  and 
12  inch  random  lengths,  10  feet  and  up, 
$19  to  $19.50  ;  2x3,  2x4,  2x5,  2x6,  2x7 
and  3x4,  10  feet  and  up,  $16.50  ;  all  other 
randoms,  9-inch  and  under,  10  feet  and 
up,  $17.50  ;  5-inch  and  up,  merchantable 
boards,  $15  to  $16  ;  matched  boards, 
$17.50  to  $18.50  ;  out  spruce  boards, 
$12.50  to  $13  ;  bundle  furring,  $16  to 
$17. 

Hemlock  continues  to  be  firmly  sus- 
tained, with  trade  quiet  :  Boards,  12,  14 
and  16  feet,  $14  to  $14.50  for  good 
eastern  ;  Pennsylvania,  No.  1,  $16  to  $17; 
No.  2,  $14.50  ;  random  $13  to  $13.50. 

The  position  of  western  pine  is  ex- 
plained to  be  very  firm,  with  the  outlook 
strong.  The  supply  in  the  immediate 
west  is  fully  under  control,  with  the 
pine  lands  of  the  farther  west  being 
bought  up.  It  is  understood  that  east- 
ern capital  is  going  into  these  pine 
lands.  Trade  here  continues  quiet  :  Up- 
pers, i-in.  $70  to  $72  ;  2%  and  3  in.  $75  ; 
4.in.  $80  ;  selects,  1  to        in.  $63  to  $65  ;

sin  valleys  taken  together  are  not  less  than 
13  per  cent,  under  those  on  January  1, 
1901.  This  is  taking  stocks  as  a  whole, 
including  both  the  higher  and  lower 
grades.  The  percentage  of  shortage  in 
the  higher  grades  is  very  scarce,  and,  as 
stated  muny  times,  the  shortage  will  be- 
come more  pronounced  each  week.  Sid- 
ing, finishing,  boards,  fencing,  timbers, 
dimension,  lath,  shingles  are  among  the 
most  prominent  on  the  "scarce"  list. 

The  past  year  has  been  a  memorable 
one  for  the  lumber  industry.  In  the  terri- 
tory tributary  to  this  market  building 
operations  were  never  so  active,  ai.d  the 
manufacturers  have  been  taxed  to  their 
utmost  to  supply  the  demand.  The 
country  was  never  in  more  prosperous 
condition,  and  people  have  spent  and  are 
spending  their  money  freely.  The  net 
profits  to  the  farmers,  who  are  large  users 
of  lumber,  from  their  crops,  are  much 
larger  than  was  first  supposed,  the  ex- 
tremely large  prices  they  are  receiving  for 
their  products  more  than  making  up  for 
any  shrinkage  in  the  size  of  the  crops. 
All  this  points  to  a  heavy  demand  during 
the  present  year. 


WHITE  PINE  CONDITIONS. 

The  condition  of  the  lumber  market  in 
the  Lake  Superior  district  may  be  taken 
as  the  barometer  of  the  white  pine  trade 
of  the  United  Slates  and  Canada.  In  the 
last  issue  of  the  Mississipi  Valley  Lumber- 
man that  market  is  reviewed  as  follows  : 

The  current  conditions  in  the  white  pine 
market,  with  the  single  exception  of  the 
badly  shattered  stocks,  are  all  that  could 
be  wished  by  the  manufacturer.  There 
has  heen  a  falling  off  in  the  demand  dur- 
ing the  past  week,  caused  by  the  advent  of 
the  holidays  and  the  taking  of  the  in- 
ventory by  the  dealers,  but  a  light  business 
at  this  time  was  desired  by  the  manufac- 
turers that  they  might  wind  up  the  year's 
business  and  see  in  just  what  posit  ion'they 
were  to  take  care  of  the  spring  trade.  In- 
ventories are  not  yet  complete,  and  so  the 
figures  showing  stocks  on  hand  January  1 
are  not  obtainable,  but  it  is  safe  to  assume 
that  stocks  in  the  Mississippi  and  Wiscon-

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "  pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  in  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  know  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as  > 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  -great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  OUr  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day— giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closes  at  the  end  of  this  year.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our   share    of  your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

There  has  been  little  change  in  the 
white  pine  situation  during  the  past 
week.  Manufacturers  find  that  the 
stocks  with  which  they  went  into  the 
winter  are  gradually  being  reduced  by  a 
considerable  car  trade,  and  if  there  was  a 
better  assortment  of  grades  a  still  larger 
trade  would  be  done.  It  is  almost  im- 
possible to  find  certain  sizes  in  the  upper 
grades.  Manufacturers  in  the  Georgian 
Bay  district  are  looking  forward  to  a 
large  demand  from  the  United  States 
during  the  spring  months,  as  Michigan 
Dealers  are  likely  to  be  heavy  purchasers. 
In  the  Ottawa  valley  district  the  market 
is  equally  strong.  Trade  is  quite  active 
for  this  season  of  the  year,  and  the 
scarcity  of  stock  has  brought  about  an 
advance  in  the  ptice  of  pine  sidings  and 
strips.  Fewer  inquiries  are  being  re- 
ceived for  lath  and  shingles,  but  recent 
prices  have  been  well  maintained. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

Manufacturers  of  spruce  lumber  are 
maintaining  a  firm  attitude  and  are 
showing  no  disposition  to  close  contracts 
for  the  coming  season's  production  ex- 
cept at  what  they  consider  a  reasonable 
figure.  The  market  for  clapboards  is 
exceptionally  strong.  The  supply  is 
short,  and  prices  have  advanced  at 
Boston  within  the  past  week  fully  $2  per 
thousand.  Cedar  shingles  are  un- 
changed, but  it  is  significant  that  the 
recent  advances  have  been  easily 
maintained.  The  annual  Miramichi 
Wood  Trade  Circular  has  been  issued  by 
the  J.  B.  Snowball  Company,  but  we 
notice  that  no  figures  are  given  of  the 
wintering  stocks.  The  total  export  of  the 
province  was  the  smallest  since  1896  and 
shows  a  falling  off  of  45,000  standards 
as  compared  with  1900.  The  port  of 
Miramichi  shows  an  increase  of  3,500 
standards,  but  it  is  stated  that  this  is 
more  than  covered  by  the  reduction  in 
the  wintering  stock.  The  shipments 
from  Nova  Scotia  ports  were  less  than 
the  previous  year,  with  the  exception  of 
Halifax. 

UNITED  STATES. 
The  developments  of  the  past  week  in 
United  States  lumber  circles  have  been 
of  more  than    usual  interest  and  have 


served  to  emphasize  the  optimistic  feeling 
which  has  prevailed  for  some  time.  The 
action  of  the  white  pine  manufacturers  in 
advancing  price  has  been  followed  by 
the  manufacturers  of  the  south.  At  a 
meeting  of  the  price  list  committee  of  the 
Southern  Lumber  Manufacturers'  Asso- 
ciation held  last  week  it  was  decided  to 
advance  the  prices  of  yellow  pine  lumber, 
as  it  was  shown  that  there  is  a  shortage  of 
upper  grades  and  no  large  supply  of  the 
poorer  qualities.  The  upper  grades  were 
consequently  advanced  $2  per  thousand, 
and  dimension  timber  50  cents  per  thous- 
and. There  was  a  disposition  to  make 
the  advance  on  the  latter  grade  $1,  but 
the  desirability  of  keeping  the  price  of 
dimension  where  it  would  not  retard  con- 
sumption was  urged  against  this  step.  A 
statement  from  thirty  of  the  largest  mills 
showed  the  stock  on  hand  lanuary  1  to  be 
36,000,000  feet  less  than  one  year  ago, 
Michigan  dealers  in  white  pine  have 
obliged  to  advance  their  prices,  as  will  be 
seen  by  our  price  list.  Some  dealers 
question  whether  this  advance  can  be 
maintained.  The  most  favorable  feature 
of  the  week  is  found  in  the  statement  of 
the  white  pine  product  of  the  North- 
west, including  Michigan,  Wisconsin  and 
Minnesota.  The  total  cut  of  pine  lumber 
in  these  states  in  190 1  was  5,372,380,000 
feet,  a  decrease  of  about  100,000,000  feet 
as  compared  with  the  previous  year.  The 
stocks  on  hand  December  1  last  were  2,- 
310,476,000  feet,  a  decrease  of  over  5oo»- 
006,000  feet  as  compared  with  the  pre- 
vious year  and  the  smallest  quantity  at  a 
corresponding  date  in  the  history  of  the 
trade.  Taking  stocks  and  product  into 
consideration,  the  year  shows  a  disposi- 
tion of  about  666,000,000  feet  of  lumber 
more  than  in  1900.  The  production  of 
shingles  in  the  same  territory  was  2,476,- 
684,000,  practically  the  same  as  the  pre- 
vious year,  whereas  the  stock  on  hand 
December  1  was  348,545,000,  as  com- 
pared with  649,000,000  in  1900  and  694,- 
000,000  in  1899.  Of  lath  the  production 
was  1,300,000,000,  which  varies  little 
from  the  previous  year,  while  the  stock  on 
hand  was  386,000,000,  a  decrease  of  40,- 
000,000.  The  cut  of  hemlock  lumber  was 
1,264,943,000  ft.  and  the  stock  on  hand 
574,407,000  ft.  While  the  production  was 
increased  by  98,000,000  feet,  the  stock  on 
hand  shows  a  decrease  of  47,000,000  feet. 
A  study  of  the  above  figures  leads  to  the 
conclusion  that  the  present  prices  of  lum- 
ber will  be  maintained  and  probably 
advanced  this  year.

Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition. 


January  i5(  l902 


GREAT  BRITAIN. 

The  course  of  the  British  timber  mar- 
ket is  still  surrounded    by  uncertainty. 
Importers  stem  afraid  to  verture  upon 
new  business  until  they  are  better  able 
to  foresee  the  extent  of  consumption. 
Some  buying  has  been  done,  confined 
chiefly  to  small  lots.    Some  ground  for 
encouragement  is  found  in  the  fact  that 
the  deliveries  from  the  public  docks  in 
London  during  the  past  year  exceeded 
those  of  1900  by  some  40,000  standards, 
of   which  35,000  standards  were  sawn 
timber   and    5,000   standards  prepared 
boards.    The    supply    has   thus  been 
reduced  to  an  average  quantity,  and  with 
a  continuation  of  the  present  satisfactory 
state  of  consumption,  the  year  should 
witness  a  substantial    advance    in  the 
price  of  lumber.    Spruce  deals  show  a 
remarkable  shortage  at  several  import- 
ing centres.    It  is  said  that  a  lot  con- 
sisting of  about  60  per  cent.  3x7  and 
3x8  has  been  sold  at  £7  15s  per  standard 
c.  i.  f.  Liverpool.    These  prices  are  not 
high  when  it  is  considered  that  $13  per 
thousand  is  being  asked  for  deals  f.  o.  b. 
St.  John,  N.  B.   The  stock  of  pine  deals 
is  being  worked  off  gradually.  Present 
quotations  show  thaf  the  price  of  best 
quality  deals,  as  compared  with  one  year 
ago,  has  continued  firm,  but  that  there 
has  been  a  loss  of  upwards  of  £\  per 
standard  in   second,  third   and  fourth 
quality.    Red   pine   has    also  suffered 
during  the  year  to  the  extent  of  about  £2 
per  standard.    Waney  and  square  pine 
occupy  a  strong  position,  and  are  selling 
at  5  shillings  and  2  shillings  per  standard 
respectively  higher  than  one  year  ago. 


THE  OTTAWA  VALLEY. 

(Correspondence  of  the  Canada  Lumberman.) 

The  opening  weeks  of  the  new  year  see 
the  local  lumber  dealers  looking  forward 
in  pleasurable  anticipation  to  the  good 
things  that  1902  has  in  store  for  them. 
While  very  little  business  is  being  transact- 
ed at  present, the  prospects  are  bright, even 
roseate.  The  demand  is  active  and  the 
supply  short  in  the  principal  grades  of 
good  lumber.  Prices  have  advanced 
accordingly.  Good  pine  sidings,  which 
ranged  from  $31  to  $42,  have  advanced, 
and  figures  run  as  high  as  $45.  Good 
strips,  previously  quoted  at  $26  to  $32, 
now  range  from  $30  to  $315.  Pine  No.  t 
dressing  sidings,  that  sold  as  low  as  $18 
1  few  weeks  ago,  now  bring  from  $20  to 
524.  Even  at  these  figures  it  is  hard  to 
ill  orders,  and  impossible  in  many  cases. 

Mr.  Thomas  F.  Elmitt,  of  the  firm  of 
Hurdman  &  Elmitt,  who  has  just 
eturned  from  a  trip  through  the  States, 
speaks  very  favorably  of  the  prospects 
'or  Canadian  lumber.  Dealers  who  pre- 
viously saw  no  further  than  Michigan  are 
low  looking  towards  Canada  for  supplies, 
rhe  [standing    timber   in    Michigan  has 


become  practically  a  thing  of  the  past, 
and  now  it  is  the  turn  of  the  Canadians  to 
supply  the  demand. 

In  the  southern  states  which  Mr. 
Elmitt  visited,  there  is  not  as  good  an 
opening  for  Canadian  lumber,  for  the 
reason  that  the  cheaper  grades  of  lumber 
with  which  these  states  are  stocked  fill 
the  bill. 

Reports  from  the  limits  in  which 
Ottawans  are  interested  are  brighter  as 
the  natural  conditions  have  improved. 
The  prospects  for  a  fair-sized  cut  are 
good.

THE  GLASGOW  MARKET. 

The  annual  timber  circular  of  Calder, 
Henderson  &  Livingston  reviews  Canadian 
woods  as  follows  : 

White  Pine— Waney— The  import  has 
been  light,  and  as  there  has  been  a  steady 
demand  throughout  the  year  it  leaves  an 
exceedingly  small  stock.to  be  carried  over. 
First  class  wood  has  been  in  demand,  and 
there  has  also  been  a  good  inquiry  for 
second  class.  P_rices__haye  advanced  and

are  strong  at  a  high  level.  First  class 
wood  of  long  average  is  quoted  at  3s  3d 
to  3s  6d,  and  short  girthy  wood  at  2s  9d  to 
3s.  Second  class,  at  2s  3d  to  2s  8d  per  c.  ft. 
Square.— The  demand  has  been  fair,  but 
the  quantity  imported  has  been  ample 
m  that  the  stock  carried  over  shows  an 
iucrease  as  compared  with  this  date  last 
year.  First  class  wood  is  quoted  at  2s  5d 
to  2s  8d  for  35  to  45  feet  average.  G.F.A. 
at  22d  to  2s  2d  per  c.  ft. 

Red  Pine. — The  import  has  been  small 
but  ample  for  all  requirements.  First 
class  wood  only  is  inquired  for  and  it  has 
been  selling  at  from  ;s  9d  to  2S3d  per  c.  ft. 

Elm. — There  has  been  a  good  demand. 
The  import  has  been  heavy,  but  as  it  con- 
sisted largely  of  grey  wood  any  parcels  of 
really  prime  rock  elm  were  readily  taken 
up  at  full  prices.  Quotations  are  as  fol- 
lows :— Rock  elm,  40  to  50  feet  average, 
2s  9d  to  3s  j  grey  elm  50  feet  average, 
around  2s  per  c.  ft. 

Oak. — There  was  an  average  import, 
and  the  demand  was  good.  The  stock 
carried  over  shows  a  heavy  decrease  and 
is  firmly  held  at  from  3s  to  3s  3d  oer  c.  ft. 
for  first  class.  Second  class  wood  is  quot- 
ed at  2s  2d  to  2s  6d  per  c.  ft. 

Ash. — There  has  been  an  average  im- 
port, but  the  demand  has  been  exceedingly 
slow,  so  that  stocks  now  are  heavy  and 
prices  weak.  Quotations  are  at  22d  to  2s 
3d  for  14  to  15  inch  average. 

Birch.— Early  in  the  year  there  was  a 
good  demand  and  prices  were  high,  but 
with  the  opening  of  the  St.  Lawrence  too 
much  came  on  the  market.  Prices  then 
fell  away  and  have  not  yet  recovered.  16 
inch  average  is  quoted  at  i8d  to  2od  per 
c.  ft.  v 

Deals,  Battens  and  Boards.  —  The 
year  opened  with  stocks  at  a  low  level 
and  an  average  business  was  done  at  fair 
prices  in  the  first  six  months.  When  the 
earlier  imports  of  pine  deals  from  the  St. 
Lawrence  came  to  hand  it  was  seen  that 
it  would  be  a  matter  of  difficulty  to  carry 
through  transactions  at  shippers'  ideas  on 
account  of  the  lower  standard  of  quality 
following  on  the  new  classification  adopted 
by  Canadian  cullers.  The  bulk  of  the  im- 
ports found  their  way  to  store,  and  it  was 
well  on  in  the  year  before  buyers  purchased 
treely.  In  August  freights  receded  to  the 
lowest  quotations  on  record,  and  this  fact 
stimulated  shipments  for  a   short  time. 


Prices  fell  in  sympathy.  It  was  only  in 
the  last  quarter  that  buyers  became  alive 
to  the  tact  that  the  import  over  all  was 
short.  Extensive  buying  then  took  place, 
and  we  finish  the  year  with  our  market 
very  bare.  Pine— Firsts— The  import  has 
been  a  light  one  and  the  stocks  are  now 
low.  Prices  have  risen  to  a  material  ex- 
tent. Broad  firsts  are  quoted  at  from  £z(> 
2s  6d  to  £28  17s  6d  per  standard.  UnJer- 
sized  deals,  £18  10s  to  £ 20  12s  6d.  Good 
sidings,  1%,  |J  and  2  inch,  11  to  12  inch 
average,  £20  to  ^22.  Strips,  5  to  7  inch, 
£  1 6  1  os  to  £  1 8  1  os.  Seconds  -These  are 
not  in  great  demand,  but  a  fair  amount  of 
business  has  been  done  in  them.  Broad 
deals  are  quated  at  £18  10s  to  £20  10s 
per  standard.  1 1  inch  at  £16  10s  to  £18 
ios,  and  undersized  at  £12  7s  6d  to  ^14. 
Thirds— There  has  been  a  steady  demand 
throughout  the  year.  Quotations  are  now 
as  follows  : -Broads,  £i3  15s  to  £16,  11 
inch  £11  ios  to  £i2  7s6d.  Undersized, 
£  10  5s  to  to  £  1 1  per  standard. .  Fourths— 
The  import  has  been  low  but  there  has  not 
been  a  great  demand.  1 1  inch  have  been 
selling  at  from  £8  to  18s  od  to  £9  55.  Nar- 
rows at  £8  5s  to  £9  per  standard. 

Red  Pine.— The  stock  at  the  beginning 
of  the  year  was  slightly  above  the  average, 
but  prices  continued  firm  until  the  opening 
of  navigation,  when  in  sympathy  with 
Baltic  they  fell  to  a  very  low  level.  Quo- 
tations are  at  from  £8  to  £10  5s,  according 
to  quality  and  specification.  A  tendency 
is  towards  higher  prices,  but  the  slock  is 
much  too  large.  Spruce.— The  import 
has  been  anaverage  one  but  was  largely  on

contract.  It  is  chiefly  held  by  merchants. 
Quotations  are  about  £&  10s  to  £9  for  an 
ordinary  Quebec  specification  of  third 
quality. 

\.  B.  Birch  Logs,  The  remarks  made 
in  regard  to  Quebec  apply  here.  The 
demand  is  at  present  quiet  and  prices  are 
about  i6d  to  i8d  for  15  to  16  inch  average. 
Planks. — The  year  opened  with  stocks  at 
a  very  low  level  and  the  imports  per  liners 
from  St.  John  in  the  first  four  months  were 
readily  taken  up  at  about  £8  10s  to  £9. 
From  May  onward  the  import  was  very 
heavy  and  prices  rapidly  receded  until 
sales  were  made  as  low  as  £6  for  Halifax 
and  £6  10s  for  St.  John.  Quotations  are 
nominally  higher,  but  as  the  stock  is  very 
heavy  there  are  still  anxious  sellers  at  low 
figures. 

N.  B.  Pine  Deals. — The  import  has 

JOHN  ANDERSON 

WOOD  AGENT 


been  a  moderate  one  and  the  demand  fair. 
Prices  have  run  about  £8  10s  to  £9  10s. 

N.B.  Spruce. — The  import  was  not  so 
liea  vy  as  last  year.  There  was  fair  demand, 
but  prices  were  kept  at  a  low  level  through 
competition  from  the  Baltic.  Battens  and 
scantling  sizes  were  too  heavily  imported 
and  sold  at  low  figures.  Quotations  are 
now  from  £b  17s  6d  to  £9  5s  according  to 
specification

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing-  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  in  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  know  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 

the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 

this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  lalest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closes  at  the  end  of  this  year.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our   share   of  your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

Spruce  frames  are  very  steady,  with  but 
lew  of  the  large  mills  sawing.  Still  the 
demand  is  limited,  and  some  of  the  smaller 
mills  have  forced  some  randoms  on  the 
market  thai  had  to  be  staid  at  easier  prices, 
for  lack  of  demand.  It  is  understood  that 
the  yards  are  lightly  stocked,  with  the 
position  firm.  Quotations  are  steady  ;  10 
and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20;  9  inch  and 
under,  $18  to  $18.50  ;  10  and  12  inch  ran-

50  to  $13  ;  bundle  furring,  $16  to  $17. 

Hemlock  is  steady,  though  the  demand 
is  seasonably  light:  Boards,  12,  14  and 
16  feet,  $14  to  $14.50  for  good  eastern  ; 
Pennsylvania  No.  1,'  $16  to  $17;  No.  2, 
$14.50  ;  random,  $13  to  $13.50. 

Western  white  pine  is  still  in  a  very 
strong  position,  and  though  the  demand  is 
quiet,  prices  are  fully  sustained  to  stronger: 
Uppers,   1   inch,  $76  to  $72  ;    2^  and  3 


inch,  $75  ;'4inch,  $80;  selecis,  1  to  1^  in.

$65  ;  4  inch,  $70  ;  barn  boards,  $23  to 
$32  ;  coffin  boards,  $25  to  $28. 

Shingles  continue  firm,  with  few  being 
shipped  :  Extra  cedar,  $3.25  to  $3.30  ;

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

It  would  bo  hard  to  conceive  of  more 
satisfactory  conditions  than  those  which 
prevail  in  the  white  pine  trade  of 
Ontario.  Manufacturers  who  have  any 
stock  of  the  upper  grades  are  in  a 
position  to  fix  their  own  prices,  knowing 
that  if  these  prices  are  not  accepted  by 
the  buyer,  the  probablity  is  that  higher 
prices  will  be  realized  before  spring. 
Numerous  inquiries  are  being  received 
from  the  Eastern  States  for  small  lots  of 
stock,  apparently  for  evening-up  pur- 
poses, while  there  is  a  disposition  on 
the  part  of  dealers  to  contract  for  the 
coming  season's  cut  that  is  not  often 
exhibited  at  this  season  of  the  year. 
Building  ooeranons  in  the  leading  cities 
ot  the  province  are  likely  to  be  of  a 
satisfactory  volume,  and  better  prices 
for  building  lumber  are  expected.  It  is  a 
question,  however,  whether  it  would  be 
in  the  interest  of  the  lumber  trade  that 
there  should  be  a  marked  advance  in 
the  price  of  lumber,  as  it  might  restrict 
the  volume  of  building.  A  satisfactory 
car  trade  in  hardwoods  is  reported,  with 
prices  stiffening  in  a  moderate  degree. 
The  returns  from  the  production  of 
hardwood  lumber  last  year  were  not  very 
satisfactory.  This  has  caused  some 
manufacturers  to  turn  their  attention  to 
pine  and  hemlock,  and  the  production  of 
hardwoods  during  the  coming  sawing 
season  promises  to  be  very  light. 

There  are  practically  no  shingles  on 
the  market,  and  if  the  demand  was 
more  active,  a  sharp  advance  in  prices 
would  be  experienced.  Lath  is  more 
plentiful  than  shingles,  although  by  ro 
means  in  large  supply.  Prices  remain 
steady. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

It  is  learned  that  the  total  stock  of 
spruce  deals  wintering  at  the  port  of 
Quebec  is  slightly  below  7,000,000  feet. 
At  the  close  of  190  the  wintering  stock 
was  25,000,000  feet.  These  figures  con- 
firm the  prediction  that  was  made  by 
some  shippers  early  in  the  fall  that  the 
wintering  stock  would  be  exceptionally 
small.  The  condition  of  the  spruce 
market  is,  on  the  whole,  very  satis- 
factory, and  it  is  the  opinion  of  the 
trade  that  the  spring  will  witness  con- 
siderable activity  and  a  strong  demand. 
Inquiries  are  being  received  by  manu- 
facturers almost  daily  for  spruce  clap- 
boards, the  supply  in  the  Eastern  States 
having  become  short.    On  Boston  rate 


of  freight  they  are  selliug  at  $35  to  $; 
for  extra  spruce,  and  $33  to  $34  for  clea 
Shingles  remain  firm  on  the  basis  of  tl 
previous  quotation  of  $3.25  to  $3. 35  f 
extras. 

UNITED  STATES. 
An  indication  of  the  trend  of  whi 
pine  prices  is  found  in  the  heavy  buyir 
for  future  delivery  that  has  taken  plai 
in  the  Lake  Superior  district.  The  co 
duions  so  strongly  favor  higher  pric 
that  dealers  and  consumers  are  satisfi* 
that  they  will  make  no  serious  mistal 
by  buying  at  the  present  market  pric 
A  sale  was  made  at  Duluth  last  week 
4,000,000  feet  of  No.  3  and  better  at  $1 
or  about  J2. 50  per  thousand  more  the 
the  same  company  realized  for  its  lumbi 
one  year  ago.  There  is  a  decidf 
shortage  in  dry  lumber,  and  those  wl 
have  stock  on  hand  have  no  difficuli 
in  disposing  of  it  at  their  own  figures.  1 
Buffalo  and  Tonawanda  a  large  busme 
is  doing.  Uppers  have  advanced  durn 
the  past  two  months  fully  $3  per  thousar 
selects  $4,  and  fine  common  and  No. 
cuts  $2.  There  has  been  no  advance 
barn  boards  and  box  lumber,  althouf 
these  have  shown  more  strength  of  la 
and  may  follow  in  the  path  of  the  highi 
grades  as  soon  as  the  spring  deman 
develops.  As  far  as  can  be  estimate 
the  volume  of  building  this  year  will  b 
heavy,  as  the  architects  universally  ai 
busy.  Logging  conditions  in  the  whil 
pine  district  have  been  favorable,  a 
though  a  greater  supply  of  snow  woul 
facilitate  hauling. 

A  steady  improvement  in  both  deman 
and  inquiry  for  hardwood  lumber  i 
reported.  The  cautious  buying  polic 
that  has  been  pursued  by  factories  ha 
brought  their  stocks  down  to  a  poir 
where  they  must  be  replenished.  Mapl 
is  likely  to  improve,  since  Michiga 
manufacturers  have  taken  united  actio 
towards  obtaining  a  more  remunerativ 
price.  Black  ash  is  in  good  demand  am 
some  elm  and  basswood  is  moving 
though  prices  of  the  latter  show  ni 
improvement. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 

British  importers  are  pursuing  : 
cautious  policy,  and  while  there  ha 
been  increased  activity  since  the  first  o 
the  year,  the  feeling  seems  to  be  strongl; 
in  favor  of  a  very  gradual  recover] 
rather  than  a  sharp  advance  in  prices

spruce  brought  /q  5s  for  3x9  inch  and 
third  quality  £9  5s.  Third  quality 
battens  also  sold  well  at  £7  15s  for  3x8 
and  £7  10s  for  3x7.  For  best  quality 
pine  deals  as  Ivgh  as  $28  per  standard 
has  been  tealized  by  private  sale,  the 
supply  being  comparatively  light.  Prices 
of  second  and  third  qualities  are  less  firm 
and  the  stock  heavier.  Red  pine  deals 
have  recovered  to  some  extent.  During 
the  summer  months  9  inch  sold  as  low 
as  ?s  per  standard,  whereas  the 
current  quotation  is  about  £10.  In 
timber,  waney  pine  is  in  light  supply  and 
selling  at  advanced  prices,  while  elm  and 
ash  are  held  in  large  quantities  and  are 
slow  of  sale. 

The  annual  timber  circular  of  Church- 
ill &  Sim  furnishes  interesting  statistics 
of  the  import  of  timber  into  the  United 
Kingdom  during  the  past  seven  years. 
The  quantity  of  Colonial  deals  and 
battens  imported  last  year  was  the 
ssince  1896.  The  total  quantity 
of  timber  imported  from  all  countries  was 
9>r93>934  loads,  a  decrease  of  700,000 
loads  as  compared  with  J900,  and  of 
250,000  loads  as  compared  with  1889. 
No  complete  figures  of  the  stock  on  hand 
are  obtainable,  but  the  public  docks  in 
London  show  a  decrease  in  deals  and 
battens  of  1,600,000  pieces.  The  figures 
of  London  consumption  make  a  very 
satisfactory  showing,  being  60,000,000 
pieces  in  1901,  as  against  55,000,000 
pieces  in  the  previous  year.

Capacity  100  Million  a  Year. 


Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  in  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  know  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  0UP  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 

the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 

this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closes  at  the  end  of  this  year.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our    share   of  your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

The  spruce  lumber  market  at  Boston 
is  quiet,  since  it  is  in  the  midst  of  the  quiet 
season.  But  there  is  no  weakness,  except 
possibly  on  some  ransoms  that  have  come 
forward  and  must  be  sold.  On  the  con- 
trary, the  position  is  very  firm  on  sched- 
ules and  anything  that  has  to  be  ordered: 
Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20;  9  inch 
and  under,  $18  to  $18.50;  10  and  12  inch 
random  lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19  to 
$19.50;  2  x  3,  2  x  4,  2  x  5,  2  x  6,  2  x  7 and 
3x4,  10  feet  and  up,  $16.50;  all  other 
randoms,  9  inch  and  under,  10  feet  and  up, 
$'7-5°;  5  inch  and  up  merchantable 
boards,  $15  to  $16;  matched  boards, 
$17.50  to  $18.50;  out  spruce  boards, 
$12.50  to  $13;  bundle  furring,  $16  to  $17. 

Hemlock  holds  very  firm,  but  the  im- 
mediate demand  is  st:ll  light:  Boards,  12, 
14  and  16  feet,  $14  lo  14.50  for  good  east- 
ern; Pennsylvania,  No.  1,  $16  to  $17;  No. 
2,  $14.50;  random,  $13  to  $13.50. 

White  pine  is  stronger,  with  western 
shippers  advancing  prices.  The  claim  is 
that  prices  "can  never  be  any  lower"  on 
account  of  the  small  and  decreasing  sup-

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

While  the  month  of  January  is  usually 
uneventful  in  respect  to  lumber  trans- 
actions, the  past  month  has  witnessed 
a  movement  which  has  further  strength- 
ened the  white  pine  market.  Buying  of 
the  coming  season's  cut  has  been  quiie 
heavy  and  at  figures  invariably  satisfactory 
to  the  seller.  The  purchase  of  lumber  in 
the  Ottawa  district  by  a  Chicago  concern, 
as  reported  by  our  correspondent,  is 
particularly  significant  as  showing  that 
the  market  for  Canadian  pine  lumber  is 
broadening,  and  that  United  States 
concerns  find  it  advantageous  to  pay  even 
the  high  prices  which  Canadian  manu- 
facturers are  now  asking,  in  addition  to 
the  import  duty  of  two  dollars  per 
thousand  feet.  It  is  estimated  that 
there  is  not  over  25,000,000  feet  of 
unsold  lumber  on  the  mill  docks  in  the 
Georgian  Bay  district,  and  even  this 
quantity  is  almost  certain  to  find  a  buyer 
before  spring.  There  is  a  firm  market 
for  logs  which  are  held  at  $11  to  $13  per 
thousand.  A  very  small  quantity  is 
beirg  cut  this  winter  for  export,  as  the 
operations  for  this  purpose  must  be  con- 
fined to  deeded  lands,  on  which  the  tim- 
ber is  mostly  scattered. 

An  estimate  furnished  by  Mr.  Ralph 
Loveland  of  the  expected  output  of  the 
mills  on  the  Georgian  Biy  is  interesting 
and  valuable,  inasmuch  as  it  shows  a 


smaller  cut  than  has  been  reported.  The 
figures  of  the  districts  are  :

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
The  spruce  lumber  market  is  firm, 
though  quiet.  It  is  anticipated  that  there 
will  be  a  strong  market  in  the  spring,  as 
the  volume  of  building  in  the  Eastern 
States  is  likely  to  call  for  a  large  quantity 
of  rough  lumber.  This, 'it  is  thought, 
will  offset  any  possible  falling  off  in  the 
demand  from  Great  Britain.  The  winter 
cut  of  logs  will  not  be  greater  in  volume 
than  usual,  and  may  be  slightly  curtailed. 
White  cedar  shingles  are, still  selling  on 
the  basis  of  $3  25  to  $3.30  for  extras  on 
Boston  rate  of  freight,  with  the  demand 
a  little  more  inactive. 

MANITOBA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 
At  the  present  time  the  chief 
interest  of  the  lumber  trade  of  the  west 
centres  in  the  movements  affecting  the 
trade  of  British  Columbia.  The  Pro- 
vincial Government  have  put  into  effect 
the  law  prohibiting  the  export  of  cedar 
lfigs,  and  British  Columbia  lumbermen 
expect  to  find  a  market  for  shingles  in 
certain  territory  that  was  formerly 
supplied  by  United  States  manufacturers. 
The  revised  price  list  is  also  commanding 
some  attention.  Cedar  shingles  are 
quoted  at  $1.70  for  No.  1, 6  to  2x16  inches, 
and  $1.20  for  No.  2  for  all  points  west  of 
Fort  William,  f.  o.  b.  cars  Vancouver. 
For  all  points  east  of  Fort  William  the 
price  is  $1.55  and  $1.05  respectively. 
Delivered  prices  are,  of  course,  quoted 
in  all  cases,  but  the  above  figures  are  the 
basis  from  which  delivered  prices  are 
made.  The  fifty  cent,  rate  covers  all 
points  from  Fort  William  west  to  and 
including  Regina,  also  a  number  of  the 
branch  roads  of  Manitoba  and  the  North- 
west, while  the  75  cent,  rate  covers 
practically  all  of  Ontario  and  the  city  of 
Montreal. 

UNITED  STATES. 
Several  small  lots  of  white  pine  lumber 
are  changing  hands  in  the  Lake  Superior 
district.  There  is  an  activity  and  strength 
which  augers  well  for  a  strong  market 
during  the  early  spring.  In  the  Albany 
market  cuts  and  better  have  advanced  $2 
a  thousand,  and  some  grades  of  common 
about  $1  a  thousand.  Dealers  there 
report  that  car  trade  has  been  ex- 
ceptionally good  this  winter.  ~~QuT— ^ 
Buffalo  list  this  week  shows  a  further

advance  in  the  price  of  uppers  and  selects. 
The  tone  of  the  market  there  is  the 
strongest  that  it  has  been  since  Christ- 
mas; orders  and  enquiries  have  increased 
materially.  The  lowei  grades  are  meeting 
with  more  inquiry  and  are  likely  to  be 
advanced,  a  feature  which  gives  much 
encouragement  to  the  trade.  The  hard- 
wood market  is  also  enjoying  a  degree  of 
activity.  Elm,  basswood  and  maple  are 
selling  very  well. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 
The  Biitish  timber  market  has  not  yet 
made  a  decided  move  towards  recovering 
from  the  recent  depression.    There  ha?, 
it  is  true,  been  some  improvement,  but 
importers  are  pursuing  a  policy  of  pre- 
caution and  cannot  be  induced  to  pur- 
chase excepting  on  a  very  moderate  scale. 
It  may  be  that  there  ■will  be  a  gradual 
return  of  complete  confidence,  which  in 
the  end  is  probably  most  to  be  desired. 
Some  of  the  largest  importers  predict 
that  the  market  will  be  comparatively 
strong  for  the  first  six  months  of  the  year, 
but  they  seem  very  uncertain  about  the 
course  of  trade  after  that  lime.  The 
curtailment  in  operations  which  has  been 
decided  upon  in   Norway  and  Sweden 
cannot  but  have  a  beneficial  effect  upon 
the  market,  and  if  the  present  line  of  policy 
is  pursued,  the  import  of  timber  into  the 
United  Kingdom  this  year  will  witness  a 
further   reduction.     At    recent  auction 
sales  buying  has  been  quite  active,  stimu- 
lated no  doubt  by  the  higher  prices  which 
shippers  are  asking.    Spruce  prices  have 
been  fairly  well  maintained,  with  the  ex- 
ception of  3x7  stock,  which  is  slightly 
lower  at   Bristol  and   Liverpool.  The 
receipts  of  spruce  deals  by  the  regular 
liners  from  St.  John  and  Halifax  has  had 
the  effect  of  checking  any  further  advance 
in  prices.    In  London  second  quality  3  x 
9  spruce  is  selling  at  £10  per  standard, 
and  third  quality  at  £9  10s  landed  at  the 
dock.    Several  contracts  have  recently 
been  placed  for  birch  squares,  the  price 
of  which  is  about  £7  10s  per  standard. 


The  Victoria  Harbor  Lumber  Company, 
Toronto,  recently  purchased  the  north 
half  of  Ferrie  township  from  the  Detroit 
Lumber  Company.  It  comprises  40^ 
square  miles,  the  pine  of  which  has  been 
mostly  cut  off,  but  there  is  a  considerable 
quantity  of  hemlock  and  cedar. 


TIMBER  LIMIT  TRANSACTIONS. 

A  couple  of  weeks  ag-o  the  Delta 
Lumber  Company,  of  Detroit,  disposed  of 
their  timber  limit  in  Mackenzie  township, 
on  the  Georgian  Bay,  to  Messrs.  Avery  and 
Eddy,  of  Saginaw,  and  Glenn,  of  Duluth. 
It  is  reported  that  the  consideration  was 
in  the  neighborhood  ot  $275,000.  The 
Delta  Lumber  Company  purchased  this 
limit  from  the  Holland  &  Emery  Lumber 
Company  in  1895.  It  comprises  nine 
square  miles,  is  a  very  desirable 
limit  as  to  location,  and  can  be  lumbered 
very  cheaply.  It  contains  about  5,000- 
000  feet  of  red  pine,  the  remainder  being- 
white  pine.

THE  OTTAWA  VALLEY. 

(Correspondence  of  the  Canada  I.umiiekm an.) 

Attention  in  the  local  lumber  market  is 
fixed  on  the  future.  Present  dealing's  are 
few.  The  event  of  the  midwinter  business 
is  found  in  the  operations  of  the  Edwin  S. 
Hartwell  Lumber  Company,  of  Chicago. 
For  several  weeks  past  the  western  con- 
cern,one  of  the  largest  of  its  kind,  has  had 
a  representative  in  Ottawa  negotiating  for 
the  purchase  of  first  class  white  pine  lum- 
ber. He  has  made  good  use  of  his  time, 
and  has  secured  a  large  slice  of  the  supply 
of  Ottawa  and  neighbouring  towns.  The 
sales  in  the  aggregate  represent  about 
$135,000  in  money,  and  7,500,000  feet  in 
lumber. 

Large  purchases  were  made  from  J.  R. 
Hoolh,  Hull  Lumber  Company,  Gillies 
Bios.,  ot  Hraeside,  McLachlin  Bros.,  of 
Arnprior,  and  Lemay  A:  Company,  Mon- 
treal. All  the  above  stock,  except  that 
secured  from  the  Hull  Lumber  Company, 
operating  the  Mason  mill,  has  been  ship- 
ped. The  freight  alone,  at  $5  per  M,  re- 
presented an  expenditure  of  about  $35,- 
000,  ana  the  duty  at  $2  per  M  another 
$15,000  The  same  firm  has  closed  a  con- 
tract for  the  1902  cut  of  the  Peters  mill  at 
Parry  Sound.  It  secured  the  cut  for  1901, 
about  ?o, 000, 000  feet,  and  the  coming  sea- 
son it  is  estimated  will  find  the  saws  quite 
as  busy. 

The  lumber  already  shipped  was  sent  by 
the  Canada  Atlantic  and  Grand  Trunk 
Railways  to  Chicago.  The  opening  of 
navigation,  however,  will  probably  see  a 
change  ot  route,  as  boat  shipments  can 
then  be  made  from  Parry  Sound  and  De- 
pot Harbor,  the  terminus  of  the  Ottawa 
&  Pairy  Sound  branch  of  the  C.A.R. 

The  Hartwell  concern  has  large  fac- 
tories in  Chicago,  where  the  Canadian 
pine  will  be  utilized.  It  is  not  at  all  un- 
likely that  the  firm  will  be  a  steady  bidder 
in  coming  seasons  for  the  product  of  the 
Ottawa  and  neighboring  mills.  It  must 
have  the  lumber,  as  the  supply  ot  the 
Western  States  is  becoming  exhausted. 
Indications  would  seem  to  prove  that  the 
mill  owner  of  the  Ottawa  district  has  in 
Chicago  a  market  that  will  rival  that  ot 
the  Eastern  States.  This  latest  develop- 
ment of  the  trade  has  another  interest  for 
the  lumber  trade.  The  large  purchase  of 
high  grade  lumber  by  the  Chicago  concern 
has  made  a  marked  reduction  in  the  avail- 
able local  supply  of  the  better  grades  of 
white  pine  lumber.  For  this  reason, 
coupled  with  the  increasing  local  demand, 
prices  are  bound   to  continue  firm,  with

every  prospect  of  an  advance.  "  Lumber 
is  lumber  nowadays "  remarked  a  dealer 
recently,  "  and  the  man  who  is  waiting  for 
prices  to  ease  has  a  long  wait  before  him." 
On  reliable  authority  it  is  learned  that  the 
cut  of  the  McLachlin  mill  at  Arnprior  for 
1902  has  also  been  sold,  making  another 
marked  reduct  ion  in  fill  ureavailable  stoi  ks. 

Unlike  the  British  buyers,  the  Chicago- 
ians  have  had  no  fault  to  find  with  the 
(-)ttawa  sorting.  The  board  lumber  has 
been  well  selected  and  satisfactory  in 
every  sense  to  the  western  buyers.  Hence 
it  would  not  be  surprising  if  early  negotia- 
tions were  closed  for  still  more  of  the 
Ottawa  mill  cut  of  1902. 

The  prevalence  of  smallpox  of  mild  type 
in  the  lumber  camps  may  have  the  effect 
of  reducing  the  log  cut  on  the  limits  this 
season.  In  several  instances  camps  have 
had  to  be  abandoned  on  account  of  laek  of 


Lumber  Company,  has  been  in  the  city 
for  several  days  arranging  for  the  pur- 
chase and  installation  of  new  machinery 
in  the  mill.  It  is  the  intention  to  change 
it  from  a  water  to  a  steam  mill.  Circular 
and  gang  saws  are  to  be  taken  out  and 
two  double-cutting  saws  and  re-saw 
installed.  The  box  factory  which  the 
company  recently  built  will  start  operations 
soon  on  a  large  contract  for  boxes  for  a 
Canadian  manufacturing  house. 

The  death  of  Hon.  R.  R.  Dobell  was  deeply 
regretted  in  local  lumber  circles.  He,  as 
head  of  the  firm  of  Dobell,  Beckett  &  Co., 
was  a  leading  spirit  in  the  British  export 
business.  The  firm  has  a  large  office  iti  the 
Capital. 

Mr.  Frank  Hawkins,  private  secretary  to 
the  late   II  on.    Mr.  Dobell,  has  taken  a 
position  in  the  Quebec  office  of  the  firm.

labor  due  to  the  ravages  of  the  disease. 
In  the  Gatineau  district  the  trouble  is  seen 
at  its  worst  stage,  and  in  the  Black 
river  and  Coulonge  districts  W.  C. 
Edwards  sN;  Company  and  Fraser  &  Com-

trouble.  The  Parry  Sound  district  is  also 
affected  and  men  are  quitting  work  either 
on  account  of  the  disease  or  through  fear 
of  contracting  it. 

In  the  Parry  Sound  district,  consider- 
able trouble  is  being  experienced  on 
account  of  the  lack  of  good  solid  sleigh- 
ing. There  is  plenty  of  snow  in  the 
swamps  but  no  bottom.  The  absence  of 
frost  early  in  the  season  has  had  its  effect.

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."    To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 

only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 

high-grade  shingle  woaH  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ia  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  km»w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  Use  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day— giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  Substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the   Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.   D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.    Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our  share   of  your  shingle   business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

The  spruce  lumber  position  at  Boston 
is  firm,  with  little  that  is  new  in  the 
market.  Orders  are  not  plenty  sinee  it  is 
between  seasons.  Neither  is  the  supply 
anything  but  decidedly  limited.  When 
business  starts  in  the  spring,  it  is  more 
than  likely  that  there  will  be  a  short- 
age and  stronger  prices,  following  the 
course  of  other  classes  of  lumber  : 
Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20;  9  inch 
and  under,  $18  to  $18.50;  10  and  12  inch 
random  lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19  to 
$19.50;  2  x  3,  2  x  4,  2  x  5,  2  x  6,  2  x  7  and 
3x4,  10  feet  and  up,  $16.50;  all  other 
randoms,  9  inch  and  under,  10  feet  and  up, 
$17.50;  5  inch  and  up  merchantable 
boards,  $15  to  $16;  matched  boards, 
$17.50  to  $18.50;  out  spruce  boards, 
$12.50  to$i3;  bundle  furring,  $16  to  $17. 

Hemlock  holds  firm,  in  keeping  with 
spruce,  though  trade  is  quiet  :  Boards,  12 
14  and  16  feet,  $14  to  14. 50  for  good  east- 
ern; Pennsylvania,  No.  1,  $16  to  $17;  No. 
2,  $14.50;  random,  $13  to  $13.50. 

White  pne  'is  scarce,  with  the  posi- 
tion very  firm  and  higher  prices  on  all 
the  best  grades:  Uppers,)  inch, $72  to  $73; 


2lA  and  3  inch,  $77.50  ;  4  inch,  $82.50  ; 
selects,  1  to  1  1-2  inch,  $66  to  $67;  2  inch, 
$6S  to  $70  ;  2  1-2  to  3  inch,  $73  to  $76  ; 
4-inch,  $75  to  $80  ;  fine  common,  i-inch, 
$55  ;  1  1-4  to  1  1-2  inch,  $60  ;  2  inch,  $55; 
2  1-2  and  3  inch,  $65  to  $67  ;  4  inch  $70  ; 
barn  boards,  $23  to  $32  ;  coffin  boards, 
$27  to  $32. 

Shingles  are  firmly  held,  with  the 
demand  limited  :  Extra  cedar,  $3.25  to 
$3.30  ;  clear,  $2.90  to  $2.95;  second  clear, 
$2-35  lo  $z-4°;  saPi  $2.10  10  $2.20;  extra 
No.  1,  $1.75  to  $1.80  ;  Washing-ton  and 
British  Columbia,  16-inch,  five  butts  to  2 
inches,  $3.45  to  $3.50. 

Clapboards  are  still  very  firm  :  Extra 
spruce,  $35  to  $36  ;  clear,  $33  to  $34  ; 
second  clear,  $2910  $32  ;  extra  No.  1, 
$20  to  $23  ;  pine  extra,  $50  lo  $52  ; 
clear,  $45  to  $48  ;  second  clear,  $40  to 
$42. 

Laths  are  quoted  at  :  One  and  five- 
eights  inch,  $3  to  $3  05  ;  1  1-2  inch,  $2.95 
to  $3. 


The  dissolution  is  announced  of  the

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

The  demand  for  lumber  in  Toronto  is 
heavier  than  usual  in  midwinter,  and 
prices  generally  are  firm.  It  has  seemed 
difficult  to  advance  wholesale  prices  to 
the  same  extent  as  has  been  done  at  the 
mills,  but  the  prevailing  opinion  is  that 
there  will  be  a  moderate  rise  at  least 
before  spring.  The  outlook  is  regarded 
as  very  bright.  Box  lumber  and  mill 
culls  are  new  being  shipped  in  consider- 
able quantities  from  Ontario  to  the 
Eastern  states,  Chicago  and  Michigan. 
Numerous  inquiries  are  being  received 
for  stock  for  shipment  as  soon  as  navi- 
gation opens.  Consumers  of  hardwoods 
are  adding  to  their  stock  of  raw  materia^ 
apparently  believing  that  it  will  not  be 
possible  to  obtain  hardwood  lumber  below 
present  quotations  for  some  time  at  least. 
Shingles  are  higher  and  sell  wholesale  in 
Toronto  at  $3  for  XXX, $2  for  XX.and  $1 
for  X.  The  movemet  of  lath  is  light,but 
the  tendency  of  prices  is  upwards,  and  as 
soon  as  there  is  an  expansion  in  demand, 
quotations  will  immediately  follow  the 
advance  which  has  been  put  into  effect  in 
the  Lake  Superior  and  Michigan  districts. 

The  latest  reports  from  the  woods  go 
to  show  that  the  log  cut  of  the  present 
season  is  to  date  behind  the  figures  for 
the  same  period  one  year  ago.  Natural 
conditions  are  held  responsible  for  the 
shortage. 


QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

Predictions  are  made  that  there  will 
be  a  strong  demand  for  spruce  lumber 
during  the  current  year.  Building  oper- 
ationsthroughout  the  Maritime  Provinces 
promise  to  be  on  an  unusually  large 
scale,  while  the  projected  harbor  improve- 
ments at  Montreal,  Quebec  and  St.  John 
will  call  for  a  considerable  quantity  o^ 
timber.  The  erection  of  large  grain 
handling  facilities  at  Quebec  by  Capt. 
Wolvin,  of  Duluth,  is  also  an  undertaking 
which  will  consume  a  considerable 
quantity  of  building  material.  The 
Eastern  States  are  likely  to  purchase  liber- 
ally, while  it  is  probable  that  about  the 
usual  quantity  of  spruce  deals  will  find  a 
market  in  Great  Britain.  Altogether, 
manufacturers  ate  disposed  to  anticipate 
a  favorable  season.  Clapboards  at  the 
present  time  are  the  strongest  feature  of 
the  market,  selling  at  $35  for  Boston 
delivery.  Cedar  shingles  are  unchanged 
at  $3.25  to  $3  30  for  extras.  Spruce  lath 
is  weaker,  sales  having  been  made  for 
Boston  at  $2.90  for  1  5-8  inch. 

UNITED  STATES. 

The  lumber  business  is  exceptionally 
good  for  this  time  of  the  year,  with  each 
day  adding  strength  to  the  position  of 
white  pine.  In  the  Lake  Superior  dis- 
trict the  shortage  in  the  supply  is  an  im- 
portant factor.  Some  dealers  have  al- 
ready advanced  the  price  of  piece  stuff 
and  No.  1  boards,  and  it  is  expected  that 
at  the  annual  meeting  of  the  Mississippi 
Valley  Lumbermen's  Association  on  Feb- 
ruary 1 8th,  the  price  list  committee  will 
decide  upon  an  advance  ir  the  price  of 
nearly  all  grades.  The  official  price  list 
of  the  Saginaw  Lumber  Dealer's  Associa- 
tion, which  took  effect  on  January  20th 
last,  shows  an  advance  on  pine  stocks 
generally,  the  greatest  increase  being,  of 
course,  in  the  upper  grades.  White  pine 
lath  is  now  quoted  by  that  association  at 
$3.75  for  No.  1  and  $3.25  for  No.  2.  The 
supply  is  light  and  no  person  is  endeavor- 
ing to  force  sales.  The  strength  of  lath 
is  also  shared  by  shingles.  Dealers  re- 
port that  it  is  simply  impossible  to  get 
shingles  to  fill  orders.  Hemlock  lath  are 
firm  at  $2.90  for  No.  1,  and  $2.15  for  No. 
2,  in  car  lots.  A  fuither  improvement  is 
reported  in  the  tone  of  the  hardwood 
market,  and  it  is  believed  that  within  a 
short  time  there  will  be  a  decided  change 
for  the  better  in  hardwood  prices.  The 
state  of  New  York,  in  view  of  an  active 
building  season,  is  buying  quite  liberally.

GREAT  BRITAIN. 
The  outlook  for  shippers  of  lumber  to 
Great  Britain  is  better  than  was  expected 
afew  weeks  ago,although  importers  are  not 
exhibiting  much  confidence  in  the  year's 
operations.    It  is  almost  certain  that  the 
better  grades  of  pine  deals  will  find  a 
market    at  remunerative   prices.  The 
course  of  the  spruce  market,  however,  is 
less  certain,  as  it  will  depend  largely  upon 
the  extent  of  imports  into  Great  Britain 
from  the  Baltic.    If  these  should  prove 
unexpectedly  large  and  greater  than  the 
market  can  absorb,  a  slump  in  spruce 
prices    will    likely    result.     Stocks  in 
London,  however,  have  become  consider- 
ably reduced  during  the  past  two  months. 
The  peace   proposals   that   have  been 
made  to  the  British  Government  are  a 
hopeful  sign,  and  although  meeting  with 
refusal,  aie  regarded  as  indicating  that 
negotiations  for  a  settlement  of  the  Sou  h 
African   war  will   soon  be   under  way. 


Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition 


STOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

The  city  engineer  of  St.  John,  N  B 
has  been  instructed  to  invite  tenders  for 
the  supply  of  2,500  tons  of  timber  for  the 
building  of  a  wharf. 

The  cooperage  market  at  the  present 
time  is  quiet.  Buyers  are  not  in  the  mar- 
ket to  any  extent.  In  Chicago  pork  bar- 
rels are  offered  at  from  90  to  95  cents. 

Mr.  Kennedy,  of  North    Brook,  Ont 
has  taken  out  20,000  cubic  feet  of  board 
timber  for  Burton  Bros.,  of  Barrie  The 
timber  was  cut  on  the  Drinkwater  limits. 

During  the  year  1901  Buffalo  dealers 
imported  from  Canada  69,212,106  feet  of 
umber,  44,803,333  shingles,  and  12,071, =70 
laths.  These  figures  show  a  |ar«. 
increase  over  those  of  1900,  which  were 
43.562,74 ■  feet  of  lumber,  23,360,400 
shingles,  and  3,151,400  laths. 

In  the  Chicago  market  there  are  many 
items  of  white  pine  lumber  that  are  excep- 
tionally scarce.  No.  1  and  No.  2  12-inch 
boards  in  any  length  are  difficult  to  get 
hold  of,  and  everything  over  16-foot  in  both 
Norway  and  white  pine  piece  stuff  is  ex- 
ceedingly scarce,  also  2  x  12  and  3  x  12. 

Hon.  C.  W.  Robinson,  Capt.  Wright 
and  F.  C.  Robinson,  of  Moncton,  and  C. 
S.  Hickman,  of  Dorchester,  N.  B  have 
purchased  the  mills  and  30,000  acres  of 
timber  lands  from  Gillespie  Prescolt  of 
Cumberland  county,  N.  S.  The  property 
is  situated  near  Shulee,  and  the  purchase 
price  is  about  $100,000. 

McLachlin  Bros.,    of  Arnprior,  On! 
recently  sold  about  8,500,000  feet  of  12' 
inch  stock  to  the  Shepard  &  Morse  Com- 
pany for  shipment  to  South  America.  The 

1  1  i*f«r-»^,,  »s«,f^s««^,^B^e 


cash  'equivalent  was"  in  the  neighborhood 
of  $150,000.  Hostilities  in  the  southern 
republics  have  interfered  with  the  business 
for  months  past,  but  it  is  now  recovering 
its  former  activity.  6 

Mr.  G.  W.  Campbell  is  understood  to 
have  entered  into  an  agreement  with  the 
Pacific  Coast  Lumber  Company,  of  New 
Westminster,  B.C.,  to  handle  their  entire 
output.  This  company  is  now  buildline  a 
mill  on  Coal  Harbor,  within  the  city  limits 
ot  Vancouver. 

The  R.  Laidlaw  Lumber  Company,  of 
Toronto  and  Buffalo,  are  reported  to  have 
purchased  the  entire  output  of  the  Hunts- 
ville  Lumber  Company's  mill  for  the 
coming  season.  This  company  have 
purchased  largely  in  Ontario  within  the 
last  two  months. 

The  vessel  Wetmore,  loaded  with 
lumber,  recently  became  stranded  at 
lobermorey,  Bruce  county,  Ont.  The 
lumber  was  en  route  to  Buffalo,  beine  the 
property  of  Hurd  &  Hauenstein  and 
Hurd  Bros.,  of  that  city.  It  comprised 
about  2,000,000  feet,  of  which  about  four- 
hfths  has  been  saved  and  is  now  offered 
for  sale  by  the  insurance  agents. 

The  red  shingle  situation  in  Washington 
is  marked  by  a  steady  improvement  in 
prices.  Clears  are  bringing  about  $1.85 
and  stars  about  $1.65.  Stars  are  stronger 
m  the  market  than  clears,  a  reversal  of 
the  order  prevailing:  near  the  close  of  last 
season.  This  is  attributed  to  the  fact  that 
the  poor  market  for  stars  which  prevailed 
at  that  time  caused  many  mills  which  had 
been  cutting  that  grade  to  turn  to  clears 
with  the  result  that  the  stock  of  stars  has 
been  reduced. 

Of  the  hardwood  situation  at  Buffalo, 
N.  Y.,  the  American  Lumberman  says: 
Dealers     find     that     the    demand  is 
improving  and    the    supply  is   not  only 
small,  but  is  growing  smaller  right  along-. 
While    New    England   is  not  buying  as 
readily  as    it   might,    waiting  for  more 
favorable  prices,    New  York   State  and 
City  are  quite  in  line  and  will  have  lumber 
if  they   can  get  it,  whether  the  price  is 
what  they  want  or  not,  for  the  outlook  is 
that  this  state  is  building  as  it  never  did 
before,  taken  as  a  whole,  and  will  keep  on 
building  as  long  as  general  business  may 
be  good.    What  is  going  to  be  done  for 
stock,    especially    oak,  is  hard  to  say. 
Some  dealers,  who  used  to  be  the  stand- 
bys  in  that  sort  of  lumber,  say  that  they 
are  very  low  in  it,  while  others,  who  are 
very  inclined  to  boast  of  their  supply,  ad- 
mit that  they  are  out  of  this  or  that, 
especially  certain  thick  cuts.  The  demand 
is  more  general  than  it  was  and  calls  for 
all  sorts  and  all  cuts,  but  it  will  have  to  be 
satisfied  with  what  there  is.    Prices  are 
about  as  formerly,  though  some  dealers 
are  asking  more  for  oak. 

A  market  report  from  S.  P.  Musson, 
Son  &  Company,  dated  January  i8ih, 
contains  the  following  reference  to  the 
Barbados  lumber  market  :  "Arrivals  have 
been  heavy,  and  dealers  were  so  fully 
stocked  that  a  decline  was  bound  to  take 
place,  and  if  further  arrivals  occur,  we 
shall  probably  see  even  lower  prices.  The

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "  pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 

high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  bo  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ii  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  l;n  iw  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  I  he  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  ol  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  °f  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day— giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
.  a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  Substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our   share  of  your  shingle   business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition. 


I  February  5,  1902 


THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

For  spruce  lumber  the  week  shows  an 
improvement  in  the  demand,  though 
slight.  The  situation  is  considered  very 
firm,  following  the  remarkably  strong 
position  of  southern  pine,  cypress  and 
other  woods,  for  which  spruce  can  be  sub- 
stituted. The  actual  scarcity  of  spruce  in 
most  sections  is  also  a  very  strong 
feature  :  Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions, 
$20  ;  9  inch  and  under,  $18  ;  10  and  12 
inch  random  lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19 
to  $19.50;  2  x  3,  2  x  4,  2x  5,  2x6,  2x7 
and  3x4,  10  feet  and  up,  $16  to  $16.50  ; 
all  other  randoms,  9  inch  and  under,  10 
feet  and  up,  $17  to  $17.50;  5  inch  and 
up  merchantab.'e  boards,  $15  to  $16  ; 
matched  boards,  $18  to  $19  ;  out  spruce 
boards,  $$13;  bundle  furring,  $16  to  $17. 

Hemlock  lumber  is  well  sustained  : 
Boards,  12,  14  and  16  feet,  $14  to  $14.50 
for  good  eastern  ;  Pennsylvania,  No.  1, 
$16  to  $17  ;  random,  $13  to  $13.50;  No.  2, 
$14.50. 

'The  scarcity  and  firmness  in  white  pine 
is  a  feature  of  the  present  lumber  mar- 
ket, with  little  chance  of  prices  being 
any  easier  :  Uppers,  1  inch,  $72  to  $73  ; 
2>£  and  3  inch,  $77.50  ;  4  inch,  $82.50  ; 


selects,  1  to  1  1-2  inch,  $66  to  $67;  2  inch, 
$68  to  $70  ;  2  1-2  to  3  inch,  $73  to  $76  ; 
4-inch,  $75  to  $80  ;  fine  common,  i-inch, 
$55  !  '  '"4  10  1  1-2  inch,  $60  ;  2  inch,  $55; 
21-2  and  3  inch,  $65  to  $67  ;  4  inch,  $70  ; 
barn  boards,  $23  to  $32  ;  coffin  boards, 
$27  to  $32. 

...  Hardwoods  are  very  firm  on  some 
varieties,  with  quotations  unchanged  : 
One  inch  whitewood,  $38  to  $40  ;  thicker, 
$39  to  $42  ;  j>  inch,  $30  to  $35  ;  saps, inch, 
$25  to  $30  ;  common,  $23  to  $25  ;  quar- 
tered oak,  $56  to  $65  ;  fancy,  $70  to  $75  ; 
plain  oak,  $40  to  $47  ;  black  ash,  $40  to 
$50  ;  while  ash,  $45  to  $55  ;  cherry,  $90 
to  $130  ;  maple,  $32  to  $40. 
t  Shingles  are  very  firm  with  fancy 
prices  quoted  for  immediate  delivery. 
Extra  cedar,  $3.25  to  $3.30  ;  clear,  $2.85 
to  $2.95;  second  clear,  $2.35  to  $2.40;  sap, 
$2.10  to  $2.20;  extra  No.  1,  $1.75  to 
$1.80  ;  British  Columbia,  16-inch,  five 
butts  to  2  inches,  $3.45  to  $3.50. 

Clapboards  are  still  very  firm,  with  the 
market  largely  nominal  :  Extra  spruce, 
$35  to  $36;  t-''e»r.$33  to  $34;  second  clear, 
$29  to  $32  ;  extra  No.  1,  $20  to  $23  ;  pine 
extra,  $50  to  $52  ;  clear,  $45  to  $48  ; 
second  clear,  $40  to  $42.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

The  stock  lists  that  are  being  sent  out 
by  the  manr.facrurers  of  pine  lumber  are 
a  good  indication  of  the  position  of  the 
market.  They  show  very  clearly  that 
there  is  practically  no  good  lumber  in 
mill  yards  ihat  has  not  been  contracted 
for,  and  thai  ihe  stock  of  the  lower 
grades  is  considerably  broken  and  much 
lighter  than  when  ihe  nvlls  closed  down. 
There  has  been  an  exceptionally  large 
winter  demand,  and  when  sawing 
operations  are  resumed  the  yards  will  be 
practically  cleaned  ont.  The  buying  of 
the  coming  season's  production  has  been 
heavy.  One  manufacturer  reports  'hat 
all  the  dressing,  ruts  and  better  that  he 
can  manufacture  this  year  has  been  con- 
tacted for  at  an  advance  of  10  per  cent, 
over  the  prices  of  last  spring.  In  in- 
dividual cases  the  prire  of  certain  stock  is 
being  marked  up.  This  is  regarded  as 
an  evidence  ihat  further  advances  will 
be  made  by  manufacturers  as  a  whole  in 
the  near  future.  It  is  contended  that 
the  greater  cost  of  provisions  for  bo'h 
men  and  horses  must  result  in  increasing 
the  value  of  lumber.  Ottawa  valley 
manufacturers,  in  addition  to  their 
usual  British  contracts,  have  m?de 
large  sales  of  white  pine  to  the  United 
States.  The  market  for  red  pine,  how- 
ever, is  still  heavy  and  uncertain  owing 
to  the  large  stocks  hHd(  but  some  relief 
will  no  doubt  be  afforded  by  the  light 
operations  in  that  timber  this  winter. 

Implement  and  furniture  manufac- 
turers are  reported  to  be  buying  more 
hardwood  lumber  than  for  some  time 
past,  and  in  some  lines  there  has  been  a 
slight  appreciation  in  values.  Maple 
continues  dull  of  sale  and  in  large  supply, 
but  in  the  other  classes  of  hardwoods 
stocks  are  not  exceptionally  heavy. 

The  shingle  situation  is  extremely  in- 
teresting at  the  present  time.  The  stock 
list  of  a  large  Georgian  Bty  manufac- 
turer shows  that  his  supply  of  shingles 
has  become  completely  exh  lusted.  This 
is  the  case  with  many  others,  and  it  is  a 
question  where  the  supply  for  the  spring 
trade  is  to  be  obtained.  The  Eastern 
States  will  this  year  depend  more  upon 
Canadian  shingles  thin  ever  before,  as 
the  new  product  of  Washington  will  not 
be  ready  for  the  market  until  late  in  the 
spring.  Higher  prices  for  both  pine  and 
cedar  shingles  seem  evident  between  now 
and  midsummer. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
The  spruce  market  is  holding  its  own, 
and  while  prices  are  not  advancing  it  is 
believed  that  there  will  be  an  upward 
movement  towards  the  opening  of  navi- 
gation. The  Eastern  States  have  taken 
so  much  spruce  lumberthat  manufacturers 
feel  less  dependent  upon  the  British  mar- 
ket.   A  contract  has  been  let  within  the 


past  week  for  harbour  improvements  at 
Three  Rivers,  Quebec,  estimated  to  cost 
$7150,000.  This  work  will  call  for  a  large 
quantity  of  timber,  and  will  be  com- 
menced at  the  openirg  of  navigation. 
Oiher  important  public  works  are  to  be 
carried  out  this  year  in  Quebec  province. 

Very  little  chartering  has  as  yet  been 
done  by  shippers,  although  the  present 
low  rates  should  be  an  incentive  to  close 
contracts.  It  is  said  that  arrangements 
have  been  made  by  Hon.  J.  B  Snowb  tl', 
of  Chatham,  to  ship  a  quantity  of  Miia- 
michi  deals  by  the  Don  tldson  steamers 
which  will  sail  from  St.  John,  N  B  ,  dur- 
ing the  remainder  of  the  season  to  Glas- 
gow. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 
Lumber  prices  in  the  British  market 
have  undergone  no  impor'ant  change 
since  the  close  of  last  year.  In  the  bet'er 
quilities  of  pine  and  spruce  deals  and  in 
all  grades  of  whitfwood  there  has  been  a 
sltght  advance.  Whitevvood  especially  is 
finding  a  ready  sale  and  is  commanding 
ten  shillings  per  standard  more  lhan  it 
did  in  December.  This  has  resulted  in 
more  liberal  buying  of  spruce,  the  stock 
of  which  has  become  considerably  re- 
duced. First  quality  pine  is  low  in  stock 
and  holders  of  broads  are  asking  higher 
prices.  Red  pine  deals  in  regular  sizes 
are  firm,  but  undersized  a'e  weak  and 
selling  about  £1  lower  than  at  the  close 
of  December.  American  pine  doots  ha^e 
continued  to  improve  in  value,  the  latest 
advance  being  about  three  pence.  Ad- 
vices from  Great  Britain  state  ihat  this 
upward  tendency  is  likely  to  continue  un- 
til prices  reach  a  materially  higher  basis. 

There  has  as  yet  been  very  little  buy- 
ing for  the  coming  season,  importers  ap- 
parently preferring  to  wait  further  develop- 
ments before  contracting  for  their  supply. 
Agents  for  spruce  shippers  are  now  going 
the  rounds  and  are  said  to  be  asking  an 
advance  of  10  shillings  per  standard  over 
last  year's  first-open-water  prices,  where- 
as buyers  do  not  seem  disposed  to  pay 
moie  than  3  shillings  abovethe  old  figures 
consequently  there  is  somewhat  of  a 
deadlock.  The  square  timber  market  is 
firm  with  little  doing. 

UNITED  STATES. 
The  advanced  prices  that  are  being 
asked  for  lumber  in  the  Lake  Superior 
district  has  apparently  not  letarded  the 
demand,  as  the  shipments  fiom  Minne- 
apolis during  January  were  greater  than 
for  the  corresponding  month  of  last  year. 
Practically  all  the  dry  lumber  at  the  head 
of  the  lakes  is  sold,  also  the  greater  por- 
tion of  the  cut  of  the  coming  summer. 
Buffalo  concerns  have  recently  bought 
heavily  of  good  lumber  at  Duluih  and 
Marinette.  At  Tonawanda  the  market  is 
stionger  lhan  at  any  o  ber  time  since  the 
holidays,  and  prices  have  advanced 
slightly  on  certain  grades.  There  is  an 
exceptional  demand  for  No.  1  cuts  in  i£ 
and  2  inch.  In  Chicago,  while  the  great- 
est demand  is  foi  No.  1  boards  and  strips, 
there  is  a  strong  request  for  No.  1  pine 
piece  stuff  and  box  lumber,  at  very  satis-

there  h  ts  been  a  material  improvtment  in 
hemlock.  At  a  meeting  of  the  manufac- 
turers of  Wisconsin  last  week  prices  on 
ne-irly  all  items  in  the  hemlock  list  were 
advanced  on  edollar  per  thousand,  while  at 
a  recent  meeting  of  Michigan  producers

of  fu  ure  sales.  In  Michigan  theie  is  a 
decided  scarcity  of  2  x  4  and  2  x  8  in  14

THE  GLASGOW  MARKET. 

Messrs.  Alliscn,  Cousland  &  Co.,  in 
their  monthly  timber  market  report,  dated 
1st  February,  say  : 

There  i>  little  of  importance  to  report 
during  1  he  past  month.  Saw  millers 
♦  report  having  had  a  good  start,  but  sellers 
have  been  r.ilhrr  quiet.  The  stock  of 
spruce  and  white  pine  is  small,  and  there 
is  a  tendency  toward  higher  values.  An 
advance  in  price  has  also  taken  place  in 
pitch  pine,  but  the  stock  is  still  too  large 
to  warrant  a  '-ontinuance.  Trade,  how- 
ever, cannot  be  said  to  be  too  promising, 
shipbuilding  orders  being  very  scarce, 
and  oilier  allied  trades  are  only  moderately 
employed.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

The  spruce  lumber  market  continues 
firm,  though  it  is  still  in  the  midst  of 
the  quiet  season.  It  is  possible  that 
some  lots  of  random  might  have  to  be 
sold  a  little  below  quotations,  if  shipped

New  Mill  Erected  1901. 


Capacity  100  Million  a  Year. 


Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  kn  >w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
our  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct, 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our   share    ot   your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

The  statistical  statement  presented  at 
the  annual  meeting  of  the  Lumbermen's 
Associationof  Ontario  last  week  illustrates 
very  clearly  ihe  sttong  position  of  white 
pine  lumber.  Deducting  ihe  Rat  Portage 
stock,  which  is  marketed  in  Manitoba 
and  the  Territories,  there  was  orly  ico,- 
000,000  feet  of  unsold  lumber  at  the 
mi  Is  in  the  Georgian  Bay  district  on 
December  31st  last.  Since  that  time 
considerable  shipments  have  been  made 
by  rail  and  it  is  probable  that  there  is  now 
little  more  than  150,000,000  feet  of  white 
pine  in  all  grades  that  has  not  been  con- 
tracted for.  This  quantity  will  be  required 
before  the  new  cut  is  in  shipping  condi- 
tion, hence  a  shortage  in  white  pine 
seems  imminent.  In  the  Ottawa  Valley 
district  also  the  stock  is  exceptionally 
light  and  ihe  demand  active.  Notwith- 
standing this  unprecedently  strong  posi- 
tion of  the  pine  market,  it  is  the  opinion 
of  manufacturers  that  it  would  not  be  in 
the  interest  of  the  industry  to  take  ad- 
vantage of  the  situation  by  advancing 
prices  rapidly,  as  such  a  move  would  in 
all  probability  check  the  consumption 
and  bring  about  the  substitution  of  other 
and  less  expensive  classes  of  lumber. 
The  higher  grades  of  pine  may  be  further 
advanced,  as  these  grades  are  in  small- 
er supply  than  they  have  been  for  many 
years.  Mill  culls  have  lately  shown  con- 
siderable strength.  The  supply  is  less 
than  one  year  ago,  some  manufacturers 
having  been  obliged  to  make  purchases 
at  other  mills  in  order  to  supply  their 
customers. 

Sales  of  hemlock  are  being  made  at 
$9. 50  at  the  mill,  with  higher  prices  for 
long  lengths.  In  hardwoods  the  move- 
ment is  about  normal  for  midwinter.  The 
market  is  firm,  with  an  advancing  ten- 
dency. In  some  districts  the  cut  of  hard- 
wood logs  this  winter  is  not  more  than 
half  that  of  last  season,  and  this  cannot 
but  have  a  beneficial  effect  on  prices. 
QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
Representatives  of  Quebec  shippers  ate 
now  in  Great  Britain  canvassing  the 
importers,  and  have  so  far  met  with  fair 
success.  It  is  understood  that  a  consider- 
able quantity  of  Quebec  spruce  has  been 
placed  at  figures  which  are  regarded  as 
satisfactory.  Exceptionally  high  prices 
are  being  asked  for  waney  and  square 
pine  timber,  the  quantity  of  which  is  each 
year  showing  a  decrease.  The  feeling  of 
manufacturers  and  shippers  is  in  favor  of 
maintaining  a  firm  price  for  Canadian 
stocks  generally.  New  Brunswick  cedar 
shingles  are  in  good  demand  considering 
the  season  of  the  year.  Sales  of  extras 
are  being  made  at  $2.40  at  the  mill,  and 
clears  at  $1.90,  the  figures  on  Boston 
rate  of  freight  being  $3.30  for  extras  and 
$2.81;  for  clears. 

MANITOBA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 

The  lumber  market  in  Manitoba  and 
the  North-West  Territories  is  quiet  but 
firm.  The  annual  meeting  of  the  West- 
ern   Retail    Lumbermen's  Association 


was  held  in  Winnipeg  last  week,  ac  which 
it  was  shown  that  the  business  of  the 
past  year  had  been  satisfactory.  The 
outlook  for  this  year  is  also  good,  al- 
though the  prospect  of  a  general  demand 
by  ihe  building  trades  for  higher  wages 
is  causing  some  anxiety,  as  it  is  feared 
that  it  may  result  in  the  postponement  of 
some  proposed  building  operations. 
Prices  of  British  Columbia  lumber  and 
shingles  are  sl'ghtly  stronger,  with  some 
improvement  in  demand.  A  strong 
effort  is  being  made  by  the  loggers  of 
British  Columbia  to  induce  the  Govern- 
ment to  repeal  the  act  prohibiting  the 
export  of  timber  from  the  province. 

UNITED  STATES. 
Weather  conditions  in  the  United 
States  seem  to  have  had  little  effect  upon 
the  lumber  market.  The  activity  in  the 
Eastern  States  is  almost  unprecedented 
for  this  season  of  the  year.  The  prepara- 
tions for  building  operations  show  that 
the  season  is  likely  to  be  an  active  one, 
and  that  lumber  will  be  required  in 
large  quantities.  Accordingly,  eastern 
dealers  have  bought  heavily  in  the  Lake 
Superior  district.  Estimates  of  the  quan- 
tity of  the  cut  of  the  coming  season  that 
has  been  contracted  for  range  from  50  to 
75  per  cent,  of  the  total  production. 
Consumers  in  white  pine  apparently  do 
not  expect  any  decline  in  prices,  while  on 
thei  other  hand  a  further  advance  is 
talked  of.  There  is  a  feeling,  however, 
that  if  prices  were  put  up  much  higher  it 
might  result  in  curtailing  the  demand. 
One  particularly  gratifying  feature 
is  the  increasing  demand  for  low  grade 
pine,  of  which  the  supply  is  considerab 
greater  than  of  the  upper  grades.  In 
Chicago  there  is  a  pronounced  scarcity  of 
6-inch  strips  in  all  grades,  about  the  only 
thing  really  plentiful  being  4-inch  No.  2 
and  No.  3  strips.  The  spruce  market  is 
remarkably  firm,  although  the  demand  is 
a  little  quiet. 

The  consumption  of  hardwood  lumber 
continues  about  normal.  Among  the 
strongest  items  are  ash  and  basswood, 
followed  closely  by  maple  and  birch.  It 
is  believed  that  higher  prices  will  rule 
this  year  for  basswood,  while  birch  is 
expected  to  be  a  good  seller.  A  Tona- 
wanda  firm  is  reported  to  have  sold 
4,000,000  feet  of  hardwood  lumber  last 
week.  The  tone  of  the  hemlock  market 
is  stronger.  Prices  at  Tonawanda  range 
from  $13  to  $14,  and  the  demand  seems 
to  be  on  the  increase.  While  shingles 
and  lath  are  not  in  great  demand,  prices 
are  strong  and  likely  to  be  higher.  It  is 
estimated  that  at  North  Tonawanda  there 
is  not  over  1, 1500,000  wh'te  pine  lath  in 
the  hands  of  dealers.  Eastern  spruce  lath 
touched  $4  m  New  York  recently. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 

The  course  of  the  British  timber  market 
since  the  first  of  the  year  has  in  the  main 
been  steady,  but  there  is  an  absence  of  that 
strong  confidence  which  usually  accom- 
panies a  revival  of  trade.  The  statement 
of  stocks  on  hand  at  the  leading  ports  show 
that  there  is  not  the  heavy  supply  that  is 


1 1. 


Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition 


February  19,  1902 


generally  considered.  For  instance,  the 
stock  of  pine  and  spruce  boards  in  the 
Londondocks  is  less  than  at  the  same  time 
last  year,  while  pine  and  spruce  deals 
are  represented  by  only  a  slightly  heavier 
stock.  At  Liverpool  the  stock  of  Quebec 
pine  and  spruce  deals  and  square  and 
waney  timber,  as  well  as  red  pine  timber, 
is  lighter  than  one  year  ago,  but  there  is 
a  heavier  stock  of  elm,  birch  and  ash 
timber.  It  is  reported  that  several  large 
contracts  for  spruce  have  recently  been 
closed  at  an  appreciable  advance  on  last 
season's  figure?,  also  that  some  5,000  logs 
of  birch  have  been  placed  principally  to 
London,  Liverpool  and  Manchester,  at  a 
shade  over  the  prices  of  last  year.  The 
standard  sizss  in  9  and  1 1  inch  deals  are 
regarded  as  likely  to  advance  during  the 
year,  but  the  course  of  irregular  sizes  and 
low  grade  stork  is  in  some  doubt.  We 
are  to'.d  that  Quebec  pine  deals  are  finding 
a  ready  sale  at  Hartlepool,  where  first  and 
second  quality  are  almost  exhausted  and 
the  stock  of  thirds  is  limited.  On  the 
whole,  there  seems  to  be  a  better  demand 
for  Canadian  hardwoods  and  ptices  all 
round  ate  a  little  firmer. 


STOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

Richard  Vigars,  of  Port  Arthur,  has 
purchased  the  planing  mill  of  M.  S.  Kelly 
at  that  place,  together  with  the  stock  on 
hand. 

The  Dominion  Government  is  asking 
for  tenders  up  to  March  3rd  for  construc- 
tion of  breakwaters  at  Herring  Cove,  N.S., 
and  at  Upper  Salmon  River,  Albert  county, 
N.B.,also  for  the  supply  of  poles  for  the 
construction  of  125  miles  of  telegraph 
lines  in  Cape  Breton. 

The  City  of  St.  John,  N.B.,  recently  in- 
vited tenders  for  2,000  tons  of  birch  or 
maple  timber  and  500  tons  of  white  pine. 
The  contract  for  supplying  (he  timber  has 
been  given  to  J.  M.  Scott,  of  Hawkshaw, 
York  county,  at  $7  per  ton.  A.  H.  Hil- 
yard  &  Company  offered  125  tons  of 
white  pine,  in  lengths  from  1410  22  feet,  at 
$10  per  ton,  and  the  longer  lengths  at 
$12.50  per  ton.  C.  E.  Gallagher,  of  Perth, 
tendered  on  100  tons  of  birch  or  maple  in 
14  foot  lengths,  200  tons  in  22-foot  lengths, 
and  200  tons  in  from  12  to  22-foot  lengths, 
at  $5.70  per  ton. 


TRANSACTIONS  IN  TIMBER 
PROPERTIES. 

The  largest  private  transaction  in  timber 
properties  that  has  taken  place  in  Canada 
for  many  years  was  consummated  last 
week,  by  which  the  timber  limits,  saw 
mills,  water  l^ower,  and  other  property  of 
Cook  Bros.,  of  Toronto,  passed  into  (lie 
possession  of  George  W.  Cook,  nephew 
of  H.  H.  Cook,  and  George  J.  Cook, 
members  of  the  old  firm,  and  William 
Lummis,  late  manager  of  part  of  Cook 
Bros',  properties.  The  limits  sold  are  on 
the  north  shore  of  the  Georgian  Bay  and 
cover  eight  townships,  or  300  square 
miles  of  territory.  The  saw  mill  is  located 
at  what  is  commonlv  called  Cook's  Mills. 


The  exact  purchase  price  could  not  be 
ascertained,  but  it  is  understood  that  it 
was  in  the  vicinity  of  $1,2150,000.  The 
new  firm  will  be  known  as  Cook  &  Lummis. 

Edgar  G.  Murphy,  of  New  York,  has 
purchased  the  mill  and  other  property  of 
Henry  V.  and  Frederick  Dewar  at  St. 
George,  N.  B.  The  limits  are  situated 
in  Charlotte  and  York  counties,  and  in- 
clude the  lands  purchased  from  the 
Gilmore  estate  some  years  ago,  on  which 
some  of  the  best  timber  of  the  province  is 
to  be  found.  The  consideration  is  said  to 
be  about  $60,000.  It  is  understood  that 
the  purchaser  is  ac  ting  for  a  syndicate 
who  have  in  view  the  building  of  a  large 
pulp  mill  at  St.  George. 


TRADE  OPENINGS 

The  following  were  among  the  inquiries 
relating  to  Canadian  trade  received  at  the 
Canadian  Government  Office  in  London, 
Eng.,  during  the  week  ending  7II1  Feb- 
ruary, 1902  : 

Imformation  respecting  Canadian  hard- 
woods for  street  paving  purposes  is  asked 
for  by  a  selling  agent  who  has  experience 
in  placing  such  goods  on  the  English 
market. 

A  London  firm  at  present  doing  a  good 
business  in  chair-stock,  backs,  seals,  legs, 
etc.,  ask  for  names  of  additional  exporters 
of  such  goods  in  Canada. 

The  names  and  addresses  of  tin-  p  u  tics 
may  be  obtained  at  the  office  of  the 
C  anada  Li  mberman. 


THE  OTTAWA  VALLEY. 

(Correspondence  of  the  Canada  Lumberman.) 

"Cleaned  out  of  better  lines,  scarce  in 
others,"  is  the  general  report  of  millmen 
and  dealers  on  the  lumber  market.  As 
can  be  seen  by  a  look  over  the  latest 
revised  market  list  sent  out  from  Ottawa, 
there  is  an  advance  in  all  the  higher 
grades,  including  sidings,  strips,  shorts, 
shingles  and  lath.  Good  sidings  accord- 
ing to  dimensions  sell  from  $34  to  $415, 
and  in  some  cases  higher  figures  approach- 
ing the  half  century  mark  are  quoted. 
Millmen  who  have  stocks  are  not  in  a 
feverish  heat  to  sell,  for  they  know-  that 
the  demand  with  the  opening  of  the  build- 
ing season,  before  the  saws  again  start, 
will  be  a  large  one.  In  some  lines  the 
high  prices  have  placed  a  damper  on 
business. 

Good  pine  strips,  according  to  dimen- 
sions, range  from  $29  to  $35,  and  shorts 
for  different  sizes  range  between  $20  and 
$30. 

Lath  and  shingles  furnish  strong  feat- 
ures of  the  market.  No.  1  white  pine  lath 
sells  as  high  as  $3.25,  and  is  scarce  at 
that  ;  No.  2  is  quoted  at  $2  to  $2.25. 
Red  pine  lath  is  quoted  at  $2  to  $2.50. 
Cedar  shingles  are  in  the  fancy  price  list, 
selling  at  $2  to  $2.25  for  clear  butts  and 
$2.60  to  $3  for  xxx.  The  quotations  on 
pine  shingles  are  xxxx  $2.50  to  $3,  clear 
butts  $1.75  to  $2,  and  xx  $1.25  to  $1.50. 
In  this  connection  it  may  be  stated  that 
the  shingle  of  the  Ottawa  Valley  is  an  18 
inch  product,  while  that  of  t  he  Georgian  Bay

mills  is  16  inches  wide.  In  former  years 
the  latter  width  was  turned  out  at  Whit- 
ney, but  as  there  was  little  or  no  demand 
a  change  was  made  to  the  wider  and 
more  popular  shingle.  Occasional  orders 
for  the  16  inch  shingle  have  to  be  filled 
at  the  western  mills. 

A  record  in  the  lumber  business  has 
been  established  at  Mr.  J.  R.  Booth's 
mill.  Twenty-four  hours  from  stump  to 
saw  reaches  the  limit  where  the  distance 
is  taken  into  consideration.  Logs  are 
brought  from  the  Madawaska  district,  180 
miles  distant,  to  the  Ottawa  mill  over  a 
spur  line  and  the  Parry  Sound  branch  of 
the  C.  A.  Ry.  Trees  are  felled,  fashioned 
into  logs  and  loaded  on  cars  all  in  one 
day.  The  run  by  rail  is  made  by  night, 
and  at  7  o'clock  next  morning  the  logs  are 
on  hand  at  the  mill.  A  16  foot  log  brought 
down  recently  measured  seven  feet  across 
the  butt.  In  one  sleigh  load  there  was 
3,500  feet  of  lumber.  Who  says  the  lum- 
ber industry  is  declining? 

Negotations  havenot  yet  been  completed 
for  the  erection  of  the  mill  at  Ottawa  re- 


ferred to  some  weeks  ago,  but  work  will 
be  started,  it  is  expected,  in  time  to  have 
the  saws  going  in  the  fall.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

The  position  of 'the  white  pine  market 
is  extremely  satisfactory.  Manufacturers 
have  sold  heavily  of  the  coming  season's 
cut,  and  are  receiving  many  enquiries 
for  stock  for  shipment  to  the  United 
States.  The  Turner  Lumber  Company, 
of  Midland,  is  reported  to  have  sold 
29,000,000  feet,  to  be  manufactured 
the  coming  season,  to  the  Skillings, 
Whitneys  and  Barnes  Company,  of 
Tonawanda,  who  have  also  purchased 
the  Parry  Sound  Lumber  Company's 
cut,  estimated  between  25,000,000  and 
30,000,000  feet.  Easton  &  Company,  of 
Albany,  are  said  to  have  purchased  the 
entire  cue  of  McArthur  Bros',  mill  at 
Little  Current,  estimated  at  30,000,000 
feet,  while  other  large  transactions  have 
taken  place  which  jndicate  that  no 
difficulty  will  be  found  in  marketing  all 
the  white  pine  lumber  that  will  be 
manufactured  this  year.  Other  United 
States  firms  have  purchased  a  large 
quantity  of  logs  and  have  arranged  to 
havem  manufactu  ■  1  at  mills 
Georgian  Bay  district.  While  all  grades 
of  white  pine  are  strong,  there  is  an 
exceptionally  good  demand  for  boards 
12  inches  and  wider.    Mill  culls  are  also 


mcing  actively  considering  the  season  o' 
the  year,  and  box  grades  have  come  into 
prominence  recently.  The  scarcity  of 
lath  continues  and  is  not  likely  to  be 
relieved  until  the  mills  resume  sawing. 
Hardwoods  are  a  little  firmer  and 
manufacturers  and  dealers  look  for  an 
expansion  in  the  demand  as  soon  as  the 
spring  season  opens  up. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
The  position  of  spruce  lumber  is 
practically  unchanged.  The  opinion  is 
quite  general  that  lumber  intended  for 
the  local  and  United  States  markets  will 
hold  firm  until  midsummer,  and  manufac- 
turers and  dealers  are  making  their 
arrangements  accordingly.  The  buying 
of  British  spruce  deals  would  seem  to 
indicate  that  shippers  are  confident  of 
their  position,  although  it  is  understood 
that  less  than  the  usual  quantity  has  so 
far  been  placed  with  British  importers. 
Spruce  lath,  which  was  weak  early  in 
January,  has  recovered,  and  sales  of  \% 
inch  are  now  being  made  to  Boston  at 
S>3.  Extra  cedar  shingles  are  firmer,  the 
quotation  on  extras  for  Boston  delivery 
being  $3.35. 

MANITOBA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 

Lumber  manufacturers  and  wholesale 
dealers  have  booked  a  considerable  num- 
ber of  orders  for  spring  delivery,  and  are 
looking  forward  to  an  active  season,  as 
building  operations  in  Manitoba  and  the 
Territories  promise  to  be  of  large  volume. 
A  few  recent  price  changes  have  taken 
place.  B.  C.  cedar  base  has  declined  $5 
per  thousand,  making  the  price  now 
$42.50  in  Winnipeg.  Cedar  casing  has 
declined  $7.50,  and  B.  C.  fir  dimension 
$2.50  to  $4  per  thousand.  The  export 
trade  of  British  Columbia  has  started  off 
well.  Several  vessels  have  been  char- 
tered to  load  lumber  and  quotations  are 
somewhat  higher.  In  anticipation  of  the 
enforcement  this  spring  of  the  Act 
prohibiting  the  export  of  timber  from 
British  Columbia,  the  price  of  cedar  logs 
has  advanced  $2  per  thousand  feet. 

UNITED  STATES. 

No  material  change  in  the  lumber 
situation  has  occurred  in  the  past  week, 
the  market  continuing  strong  and  the 
buying  being  of  a  most  liberal  character. 
Stocks  in  white  pine  are  low  at  wholesale 
markets  as  well  as  in  distributing  yards. 
Wholesale  lumbermen  have  bought  very 
heavily,  it  being  estimated  that  more 
than  half  the  entire  1902  product  of 
white  pine  on  the  great  lakes  has  already 


passed  into  second  hands,  while  some 
districts  have  sold  more  than  three-fourths 
of  the  cut.    The  annual  meeting  of  the 
Mississippi  Valley  Lumbermen's  Associ- 
ation was  held  last  week,  but  no  action 
was  taken  in  the  direction  of  advancing 
the  price  list.    The  report  of  the  secre- 
tary,   however,   showed  a  pronounced 
shortage  in  the  stocks  in  the  hands  of 
manufacturers.    It  is  said  that  Buffalo 
and  Tonawanda  dealers  are   likely  to 
make  an  all-round  advance  in  the  price  of 
white  pine  lumber,  as  they  believe  this 
course  is  warranted  by  the  high  prices 
that  are  asked  by  manufacturers  and  by 
the  outlook  for  building  operations  and 
the   lumber    demand    generally.  Our 
Buffalo  list  this  week  shows  an  advance 
of  one  dollar  per  thousand  on  fine  com- 
mon and  No.  1   and  No.  2  cutting-up 
stock,    also  $2  per  thousand  on  thick 
white  ash.    The  hardwood  market  hasj 
undergone     a     distinct  improvement. 
Stocks  have  become  low  and  the  demand 
greater,  and  altogether  higher  prices  are 
looked  for.     Oak  and  maple  are  leading, 
but  the  supply  of  the  latter  is  too  large  to 
warrant  much  of  an  advance.    The  Wis- 
consin Hardwood  Lumbermen's  Associa- 
tion, at  a  special  meeting  at  Wausau  on 
February  13th,  put  into  effect  a  new  lisl 
advancing  most  hardwood  items  from  $1 
to  $3  per  thousand  feet.    This  is  looked 
upon  as  the  forerunner  o(  other  advances. 
GREAT  BRITAIN. 
The  British  timber  market  has  not  kept 
up  the  activity  which  characterized  the 
trade  of  the  month  of  January.  Recent 
unfavorable  weather  has  checked  build- 
ing operations,  and  buying  of  lumber  has 
accordingly  fallen  off.    Importers  do  not 
seem  confident  regarding  the  future  ol 
prices,  and  are  not  disposed  to  enter  into 
large   contracts  at  the  figures  that  are 
asked  by  shippers.   Accordingly,  different 
views  of  the  market  are  expressed.  From 
one    port   comes    the   report   that  the 
representatives  of  Quebec  shippers  have 
put  through  no  large  contracts,  while  the 
information  from  another  port  is  that  an 
average  amount  of  business  in  contract- 
ing for  the  coming  season's  requirements 
has  been  done.    It  is  certain,  however, 
that  such  contracts  as  have  been  closed 
show  a  substantial  increase  on  the  prices 
of  one  year  ago.    Sales  of  white  pire 
deals  have  been  made  to  Glasgow  at  ani 
advance  of  20  shillings  to  30  shillings  per 
standard  over  last  season's  quotations.  Al 
correspondent  at  Cardiff  states  that  the 
high  prices  which  shippers  are  asking  foi

Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition

spruce  have  caused  a  run  on  Austrian 
whitewood,  which  merchants  are  getting 
in  long  lengths  and  good  widths  at  iather 
less  than  the  price  asked  for  spruce 
Another  opinion  is  that  spruce  will  keep 
at  about  its  present  price  for  several 
months  to  come,  even  after  the  first 
consignments  begin  to  arrive,  for  the 
reason  that  the  consumption  will  probably 
keep  ahead  of  the  import. 

At  recent  auction  sites  in  London 
second  quality  3x9  spruce  deals  brought 
£q  13s  to^io,  and  third  quality  £<)  per 
standard.  For  3x1/  fourth  quality  pine 
$12  was  obtained,  and  for  one  lot  £12  5s. 
These  figures  show  an  advance  for  this 
class  of  lumber.

It  is  understood  that  E.  H.  Lemay,  of 
Montreal,  has  again  pnrchased  the  entire 
cut  of  McLachlin  Bros.,  of  Arnprior,

his  selling  agents,  W.  M.  Crombie  & 
Company,  8i  New  street,  New  York. 
Mr.  Lemay  has  also  purchased  other  large 
lines  of  white  pine,  basswood  and  ash, 
and  is  also  carrying  a  large  quantity  of 
log;  run  spruce. 

Messrs.  S.  P.  Musson,  Son  &  Company, 
in  their  market  report  of  February  1st, 
review  the  lumber  market  as  follows  : 
"During  the  fortnight  there  has  been  only 
one  arrival,  the  "E.  A.  Sabean,"  to  our 
address,  with  62,000  feet  shippers  and 
25,000  feet  second  quality  white  pine, 
138,000  feet  hemlock  and  a  small  lot  of 
spruce.  Dealers  are  heavily  stocked,  and 
it  was  with  difficulty  that  we  could  place 
it  at  $20.60  and  $16  respectively  for  while 
pine  ;  $13  for  shipping  and  $1 1  for  second 
quality  hemlock  ;  and  $18.50  and  $16  for 
shipping  and  second  quality  spYuce.  Ii  is 
very  desirable  that  all  receipts  should 
cease  for  some  time  to  come,  in  order  that 
dealers  may  get  rid  of  a  fair  portion  of 
their  present  supply.  Only  one  small  lot 
of  42,000  dimension  shingles  has  arrived 
by  Halifax  steamer,  which  we  placed  at 
$6.79  for  5-inch  and  $7.39  for  6,  7  and  8- 
inch.  There  is  very  little  demand  for 
laying  ;  no  arrival  has  taken  place,  but  we 
are  daily  expecting  a  large  cargo,  about 
half  of  which  is  in  fulfilment  of  contract."

ders being  Mr.  W.  C.  Edwards,  M.  P.,

the  limits  were  knocked  down  lo  him  by 
the  auctioneer. 

It  is  generally  believed  thai  Mr.  Booth 
secured  a  bargain,  as  it  is  stated  that  over 
$1,000,000  was  asked  for  the  limits  re- 
cently by  private  sale.  It  is  claimed  that 
the  limits  were  originally  bought  by  Mr. 
Mackey  thirty 'years  ago  for  $1,800,  and 
since  that  time  he  has  taken  off  them  a 
large  quantity  of  square  timber.

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  '<  pebble  on  the  beach.  "  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 

high-grade  shtngle  wonld  not  only  be  a  fish  and  [a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  ktDw  their  business;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine,  ' 
which  we  run  night  and  day— giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  i9or.  D.  Ferguson,  of  London,  Ont.,  is 
Bur  representative  for  that  province.  Orders  sent  to  him,  or  to  us  direct 
shall  have  prompt  attention. 

We  want  our   share   ot   your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

THE  COOPERAGE  MARKET. 

The  Sutherland,  Innes  Company, 
Chatham,  Ont.,  in  the  National  Coopers' 
Journal,  review  the  cooperage  market  as 
follows  : 

The  sales  of  No.  1  stock  in  28^  and  30, 
including  elm,  during  January  have  been 
extremely  active,  especially  in  flour-barrel 
staves.  Meal  barrel  staves  have  received 
a  fairly  active  inquiry,  though  not  as  brisk 
as  expected.  The  inquiry  has  been  suffi- 
cient to  reduce  the  stocks  on  hand  last 
fall  to  a  minimum  basis,  at  which  there  will 
probably  be  no  difficulty  in  disposing  of 
long  before  the  present  season's  output  is 
seasoned  and  put  on  the  market.  Good 
grades  of  patented  hoops  have  been  mov- 
ing somewhat  actively,  and  fetching  fairly 
remunerative  prices.  Heading  sales  have 
not  been  as  brisk  as  many  manufacturers 
would  like  to  see  them.  The  stocks  in 
hand  of  the  most  salable  lines  and  sizes 
are  not  very  heavy,  and  in  the  larger  sizes 
of  basswood  manufacturers  have  advanced 
the  prices,  and  are  only  contracting  sales 
on  a  firm  and  sure  basis,  on  the  supposition 
that  buyers  will  make  active  and  ready 
disposition  of  the  parcels  they  secure. 

So  far  the  weather  for  logging  opera- 
tions has  been  anything  but  desirable  in 
the  Western  States  and  Canada.  The 
absence  of  sleighing  and  the  high  prices 
prevailing  for  timber  have  prevented  mill 
owners  from  putting  in  anything  but  light 
stocks,  and  the  majority  of  factories  have 
not  secured  any  timber  at  all. 

The  demand  at  present  for  white-oak  or 
light  staves  is  very^active  and£well- 
seasoned  stocks^are  apparently  eagerly 


sought  after,  while  oak-heading  sales  have 
been  fairly  brisk.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

The  active  buying  of  Ontario  white 
pine  lumber  which  has  been  reported  for 
some  time  past  shows  no  indication  of 
falling  off,  but  on  the  contrary  new  buyers 
have  entered  the  market  and  the  competi- 
tion is  keener  than  ever.    The  Edward 
Hines  Lumber  Company,  of  Chicago, 
have  purchased  heavily  and  have  taken 
a  large  quantity  of  lumber  which  would 
otherwise  probably  have  found  a  market 
in  the  Eastern  States.    The  quantity  of 
stock  of  the  coming  season's  cut  that  has 
been  contracted  for  is  almost  unprece- 
dented in  the  history  of  the  trade,  while 
the  stock  of  dry  lumber  at  the  mills  is  so 
small  that  manufacturers  are  obliged  in 
some  instances  to  refuse  orders  on  ac- 
count of  inability  to  fill  them.    Sales  of 
certain  grades  of  lumber  have  recently 
been  made  in  the  Ottawa  valley  at  prices 
higher  than  ever  before  realized.  This 
applies  not  only  to  lumber,  but  also  to 
square  and  waney  pine  timber.   Lath  and 
shingles  are  especially  strong.    It  is  im- 
possible for  dealers  to  secure  lath  enough 
to  fill  orders,  and  shingles  have  been 
bought  up  to  such  an  extent  that  the 
market  is  almost  bare.    Winter  mills  are 
said  to  be  selling  shingles  green  from  the 
saw.    Conditions  are  most  favorable  for 
a  sharp  advance  in  prices,  but  it  is  a 
question  whether  this  will  occur  except 
in  certain  grades  in  which  the  shortage  is 
very  pronounced.    Hardwood  lumber  is 
looking  better.     Old  stocks  are  being 
worked  off,  and  the  new  cut  will  not  be 
heavy.    Maple  has  shown  considerable 
life  and  seems  likely  to  sell  higher. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
Quebec  shippers  have  purchased  a 
considerable  quantity  of  spruce  deals  for 
shipment  to  Great  Britain.  Although 
prices  have  not  transpired,  it  is  reported 
that  they  are  in  some  instances  higher 
than  those  of  last  year.  The  low  freight 
rates  will  enable  the  shippers  to  place  the 
lumber  on  the  British  market  at  a  small 
cost,  and  by  this  means  they  may  be 
enabled  to  make  a  fair  profit,  but  the 
position  of  the  British  timber  trade  does 
not  seem  to  altogether  warrant  the  high 
prices  that  'are  said  to  have  been  paid  in 
one  or  two  instances.  There  is  a  good 
demand  for  spruce  clapboards  for  ship- 
ment to  the  Eastern  States,  prices  there 
continuing  firm  and  giving  promise  of  an 
early  advance.  New  Brunswick  cedar 
shingles  are  in  strong  request,  and  the 


present  price  of  $3.30  for  extras,  Boston 
delivery,  is  being  willingly  paid  by 
dealers.  It  is  believed  that  the  scarcity 
of  shingles  will  result  in  higher  prices  for 
all  kinds  within  the  next  two  months. 

UNITED  STATES. 
With  the   advance  of  the   year  the 
demand  for  lumber  in  all  parts  of  the 
United  States  is  increasing,  and  it  will 
probably  be  heavier  than  last  year.  The 
present  situation  would  seem  to  indicate 
that  there  will   be   a  shortage  in  some 
grades  of  pine,  and  accordingly  prices 
are  decidedly  strong.    While  no  united 
action  was  taken  last  week  by  the  Missis- 
sippi Valley   Lumbermen's  Association, 
the  Minneapolis  manufacturers  have  put 
into  effect  an  independent  list  making 
the  following  advances  on  the  December 
list  :    All  dimensions  and  timbers,  No. 
3  boards,  No.  1,  2  and  3  fencing  in  6-inch 
widths,  and  No.  1  and  2  fencing  in  4-inch 
widths,  an  advance  of  50  cents  ;  inch 
finish,   D  stock  and   better  and  clear 
Norway,  and  thick  finish,  $2  ;  No.  1,  2 
and  3  shop  common,  $1  ;  4  and  6  inch 
flooring,  $2  ;  4  and  6-inch  siding,   $1  ; 
all  kinds  of  lath,  25  cents.    In  spite  of 
these  advances  the  demand   shows  no 
abatement.    The  price  list  committee  of 
the    Wisconsin     Valley  Lumbermen's 
Association  have  decided  upon  the  follow- 
ing advances  :  Timber  and  piece  stuff, 
50  cents;  No.  1  and  No.  2  boards  and 
strips,  50  cents  ;  selects  and  better,  $1  ; 
lath,  25  cents  ;  shingles,  25  cents.  Sim- 
ilar action  has  been  taken  during  the 
week  by  the   Pacific    Coast  Lumber 
Manufacturers'  Association,  the  increases 
being  $1  on  flooring  and  diop  siding  and 
all  cedar  and  spruce  lumber,  and  50  cents 
on  lath.    There  is  a  general  scarcity  of 
lath  all  over  the  northern  country.  In 
Chicago  yards  No.  1  white  pine  is  quoted 
at  $4.25,  No.  1    mixed  $4,  and  No.  2 
mixed  and  hemlock  $3.75.  Hardwoods 
are  coming   into   more  prominence  ;  in 
fact,  the  requirement  is  said  to  be  quite 
large,  furniture  factories  being  among  the 
best  buyers.     Buffalo  and  Tonawanda 
dealers  are  advancing  their  prices  on 
several  grades.    Maple  is  plentiful,  while 
basswood  is  scaice. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 

There  does  not  seem  to  be  much  life 
to  the  British  timber  trade.  Some  buy- 
ing has  been  in  evidence,  but  the  transac- 
tions have  in  most  cases  represented 
small  lots  of  lumber.  Shippers  are  making 
a  strong  effort  to  close  contracts,  without

however,  being  willing  to  reduce  their

deals,  all  3x9  and   of  good  average 
length,  arrived  at  Liverpool  recently  and

)utthe  purchases  of  white  pine  have  been 
very  light.    A  correspondent  writes  that 
shippers  expect  to  get  £5   15s  f.  o.  b.  for 
an  ordinary  specification  of  spruce.    At  a 
recent  auction  sale   in    London  3x11 
second  quality  pine    sold  at  /16  16s, 
which  was  considered  a  fair  price  in  view 
of  the    quality  of    the  specification. 
Spruce  was  offeied  in  mixed  quantities 
and  brought  satisfactory  prices.

Piece  stuff  sells  in  the  Chicago  market  at 
about  $12.50  in  carload  lots.  Long  hem- 
lock is  in  special  request  and  is  difficult  to 
find.  In  New  York  city  the  base  price  of 
hemlock  is  $15  and  in  Buffalo  $  13. So,  but 
it  is  thought  that  an  advance  will  soon  be 
put  into  effect. 


THE  OTTAWA  VALLEY. 

(Correspondence  of  the  Canada  Lumberman.) 
The  sale  of  the  extensive  Mackay  limits 
was  the  stellar  attraction  in  local  lumber 
circles  last  month.    Although  the  properly 
was  sold  by  public  auction,  it  was  a  fore- 
gone conclusion  that  Mr.  J.    R.  Booih, 
the  veteran  lumber  baron,  would  be  the 
purchaser  against  all  comers.    Mr.  Booth 
made  but  one  bid  and  that  one  was  entered, 
on  the  earnest  request  of  Mr.  Peter  Ryan', 
auctioneer,  who  had  threalened  to  with- 
draw the  limits  after  the  other  bids  were 
all  entered.  Mr.  Booth  secured  the  limits, 
129^  miles  in  extent  and  situated  on  the 
river  Amable  du  Fond,  for  $655,000.  The 
limits  were  purchased  48  years  ago  from 
the  Ontario  Government  for  $1 ,800.  Mr. 
Mackay's  purchase  certainly  brought  him 
no  regrets,  as  the  square  timber  taken  of 
the  limits  since  has  netted  him.it  is  esti- 
mated, over  $3,000,000.    The  limits  are 
still  well  timbered  with  white  and  red  pine 
of   superior    quality,   suitable     for  saw- 
logs.    The  limits  are    well    watered  and 
permit  of  a  short  average  draw.  Included 
in  the  property  sold  were  a  well  equipped 
saw,  planing-  and  shingle  mill  at  Eauclaire 
Station,  on  the  main  line  of  the  C.  P.  R., 
and   slides   and    dams.      Virgin  forest 
covers  part  of  the  limits,    which  contain 
considerable    spruce,    suitable    for  pulp 
making.    An  outlet  for  this  will  probably 
be  found    in    the  pulp    mills   which  Mr. 
Booth  proposes  to  erect  at  the  Chaudiere 
opposite  his  present  mill.    The  sale  of  the 
limits    was   a  record  one,    according  to 
Auctioneer  Ryan,  in  price  obtained"  and 
time  considered.     It    was    probably  the 
largest  sale  ever  made  by  public  auction 
in  Canada,  and  it    was  all   over  inside 
thirty  minutes. 

The  thaw  and  heavy  rains  which  marked 
the  closing  days  of  February  have  added 
to  the   weight    of  troubles   the  present

SHINGLES 


season  has  brought  to  the  lumber  opera- 
tors. The  roads,  which  were  poor  in 
some  places,  will  be  rendered  impassable 
and  a  considerable  quantity  oflhe  present 
season's  cut  will  in  all  likelihood  have  to  be 
left  on  the  limits  until  next  year.  This,  of 
course,  means  a  shortage  in  the  supply  for 
the  mills.  Disease  in  the  camps  proved  a 
great  handicap  in  the  log  production,  and 
combined  with  (he  climatic  conditions, 
has  brought  the  cut  below  the  average. 
In  some  districts,  on  the  other  hand,  the 
thaws  have  done  good  service  by  reduc- 
ing the  great  depth  of  snow.  Mr.  Robert 
Hurdman,  the  veteran  lumberman,  reports 
operations  on  his  limits  as  progressing 
satisfactorily. 

The  production  of  cedar  ties  has  been 
seriously  interfered  with  by  the  adverse 
climatic  conditions  of  the  past  winter. 
The  lack  of  frost  in  the  earlier  part  and 
the  subsequent  heavy  snow-falls  made 
access  to  the  cedar  swamps  very  difficult, 
and  as  a  result  there  has  been  a  marked 
decrease  in  the  output  of  ties.  The  de- 
mands of  the   railways  will  be  met  only 


part  way,  and  prices  are  bound  to  advance 
in  a  considerable  degree.  Another  factor 
in  the  advance  in  price  is  the  yeatly  in- 
creasing difficulty  of  gelling  suitable 
slock.  Dealers  now  have  to  go  farther 
afield.  Last  summer  only  about  10,000 
lies  were  loaded  between  Ottawa  and 
Coteau,  according  to  a  reliable  authority, 
w  here  12  years  ago  150,000  were  handled. 
The  lowly  tie  is  bound  to  become  more 
valuable  as  the  years  bring  the  extension 
oflhe  railways,  and  the  reduction  of  the 
immediate  available  supply  of  lies. 

The  Rideau  Lumber  Company  has  just 
closed  the  sale  of  a  raft  of  square  timber 
to  VV.  &  J.  Sharpies,  of  Quebec.  The  raft 
was  taken  out  on  the  Dumoine  river 
during  the  present  season.  Robert  Hurd- 
man got  out  one  raft  on  the  same  stream 
and  three  on  the  Kippewa.  A  few  years 
ago  five  times  this  amount  of  square 
timber  was  taken  out  on  the*e  streams. 
I  he  Rideau  Lumber  Company  got  a  price 
considerably  in    advance   of   last  year's

figure,  proving  that  pine  is  enjoying  a 
permanent  advance. 

Ex-Mayor  Bingham,  of  Ottawa,  is  a 
candidate  for  the  Provincial  Legislature. 
Mr.  Bingham  has  had  charge  for  many 
years  of  the  movement  of  the  logs  on  the 
Gatineau  river,  and  is  well  known  to  the 
lumber  trade. 

Military  operations  in  South  Africa  have 
delayed  the  resumption  of  the  lumber 
trade  between  that  country  and  Canada. 
Aid.  Davidson,  of  the  firm  of  Davidson 
&  Thackeray,  reports  no  orders  of  import- 
ance from  the  firm's  representative  recent- 
ly stationed  in  South  Africa.  The  close 
of  the  war,  however,  promises  to  mark  a 
boom. 

The  following  prices  were  recently 
secured  by  a  local  mill  owner  :  White 
pine  lath,  \}i  inch  wide,  $2.50  per  M.; 
xxx  18  in.  cedar  shingles,  $3.25;  xx  cedar 
shingles,  $2.25.  These  prices  are  the 
highest  obtained  in  years. 

In  my  correspondence  in  a  recent  num- 
ber of  the  Weekly  Lumberman,  dealing 
with  the  question  of  shingles  the  term 
"width"  was  substituted  by  accident  for 
"length."      The    Ottawa    shingle    is  18 


inches  in  length  and  the  western  product 
16  inches.

New  Mill  Erected  1901.  Capacity  100  Million  a  Year. 

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  ad vertisemetit  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "  pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large' quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  k»i  >w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 

the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 

this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  Orders  sent  to  us  by  letter  or 
telegraph  shall  have  our  best  attention. 

We  want  our   share   of   your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

While  the  spruce  lumber  position  at 
Boston  is  very  firm,  trade  has  ruled  dull 
since  the  storm,  which  interfered  a  good 
deal  with  building.  Quotations  are  not 
reduced  in  the  slightest  degree.  On  the 
contrary,  prominent  buyers  have  requested 
sellers  for  the  mills  to  guarantee  them 
against  further  advances  in  prices  :  Ten 
and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20  ;  9  inch  and 
under,  $18  ;  10  and  12  inch  random 
lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19  to  $19.50;  2x3, 
2X4.  2X5>  2x6,  2x7  and  3x4,  10  feet 
and  up,  $16  to  $16.50;  all  other  ran- 
doms, 9  inch  and  under,  10  feet  and  up, 
$17  to  $17.50  ;  5  inch  and  up  merchantable 
boards,  $15  to  $16  ;  matched  boards,  $18 
to  $19  ;  out  spruce  boards,  $13  ;  bundle 
furring,  $16  to  $17. 

While  hemlock  has  been  ruling  quiet  for 
a  few  days,  for  the  same  reason  as  spruce, 
the  position  is  very  firm,  with  a  further 
advance  suggested.  Boards,  12,  14  and 
16  feet  stock,  $14.50  to  $15  for  good 
eastern;  Vermont,  $13  to  $14;  random, 
eastern,  $13.50  to  $14;  Pennsylvania,  No. 
1,  $16  to  $17  ;  No.  2,  $14.50. 

Shingles  are  in  short  supply  and  firm, 
though  the  demand  is  the  usual  quiet  one 
of  winter:  Extra  cedar,  $3.30  to  $3.35  ; 
clear,  $2.90  to  $3  ;  second  clear,  $2.-55 
to  $2.50;  sap,$2. 10;  extra  No.  1 ,  $  1 .75 
to  $1.50  ;  Washington  and  British  Colum- 
bia red  cedar,  16-inch,  five  butts  to  2 
inches,  $3.45  to  $3.50;  18-inch,  $4.25(0 
$4.50. 

Clapboards  are  scarce  and  firm.  At 
the  same  time  the  demand  is  small: 
Extra  spruce,  ^$35  to  $36  ;  clear,  $33  to 


$34  ;  second  clear,  $29  to  $32  ;  extra 
No.  1,  $20  to  $23;  pine  extra,  $50 
to  $52  ;  clear,  $45  to  $48  ;  second  clear, 
$40  to  $42.

FIRES. 

The  saw  mill  and  stave  factory  of  J.  E* 
Murphy  at  Hepworth,  Ont. , were  destroyed 
by  fire  last  week.  The  loss  is  about 
$8,ooo,  partially  covered  by  insurance. 

The  factory  of  the  Columbia  Handle  & 
Tool  Company,  London,  Ont.,  was  com- 
pletely destroyed  by  fire  on  9th  inst.  The 
loss  on  plant  and  stock  is  about  $20,000. 


Mr.  V.  Travers,  of  Liverpool,  England, 
is  about  to  visit  Canada  and  the  United 
States  in  connection  with  contracts  for  the 
importation  of  timber.  The  trip  is  being- 
undertaken  in  the  interest  of  his  firm  and 
that  of  Messrs.  Sieveking,  Podmore  & 
Company,  7  Crosby  Square,  London. 


CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

Another  circumstance  has  transpired 
to  further  strengthen  the  position  of 
white  pine  lumber.  The  recent  mild 
weather  has  seriously  interfered  with 
logging  operations,  and  in  many  districts 
prevented  entirely  the  hauling  of  logs  to 
the  streams.  Should  the  weather  con- 
tinue mild,  a  large  quantity  of  logs  will 
necessarily  be  left  in  the  woods.  An 
operator  in  the  Georgian  Bay  district 
states  that  fully  one-third  of  the  winter's 
cut  of  logs  on  the  north  shore  remains  to 
be  hauled,  and  that  the  present  outlook 
is  anything  but  encouraging.  As  a  large 
proportion  of  the  white  pine  production 
of  the  coming  season  has  already  been 
contracted  for,  a  considerable  reduction 
in  ihe  cut  of  the  mills  would  be  likely  to 
bring  about  a  famine  in  this  class  of 
lumber.  The  market  at  the  present 
time,  therefore,  is  exceptionally  strong. 
Ottawa  valley  manufacturers  speak  most 
hopefully  of  the  prospective  demand. 
The  heavy  buying  in  that  district  of  late 
by  United  States  concerns  has  almost 
wiped  out  the  supply  of  good  lumber, 
while  the  stock  of  the  lower  grades  has 
been  reduced  to  a  point  which  gives  the 
seller  the  advantage  in  effecting  sales. 
The  building  season  is  opening  up  satis- 
factorily, although  in  Toronto  talk  of 
labor  troubles  has  produced  a  somewhat 
unsettled  feeling  and  may  restrict  the 
volume  of  building  until  the  matter  is 
finally  settled.  'The  open  weather  has 
created  a  brisk  enquiry  for  shingles. 
Hemlock  lumber  is  stronger,  sales  in 
Toronto  ranging  from  $12.50  to  $13 
Implement  and  furniture  factories  are 
buying  hardwoods  liberally,  and  although 
prices  have  not  materially  improved,  it 
is  believed  that  the  foundation  is  being 
laid  for  a  substantial  advance  later  on. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
The  probability  of  early  spring  sawing 
has  caused  a  slight  weakening  of  the 
spruce  lumber  market  in  respect  to  local 
trade.  There  has  been  an  average 
input  of  logs,  and  if  weather  conditions 
this  spring  should  be  favorable  for 
lumbermen,  the  mills  are  likely  to  make 
a  large  cut.  Some  manufacturers  will 
this  year  saw  a  smaller  quantity  of 
British  deals  than  usual  and  give  more 
attention  to  the  United  States  and  home 
markets.  Prices  of  clapboards  continue 
high,  sales  of  extra  spruce  having  been 
made  for  Boston  delivery  at  $36.  Extra 


cedar  shingles  are  selling  at  $3.30,  while 
some  manufacturers  are  holding  out  for  a 
ten-cent  advance  on  this  figure.  Spruce 
laths  have  improved,  the  average  quota- 
tion for  \  %  inch,  on  Boston  freight  rate, 
being  $3.10. 

UNITED  STATES. 

Adverse  weather  conditions  have 
affected  the  lumber  conditions  of  the  past 
ten  days.  In  the  Eastern  States  storms 
and  high  water  have  limned  the  volume 
of  business,  and  in  almost  every  section 
some  trouble  from  this  cause  is  reported_ 
In  the  logging  districts  the  weather  has 
been  so  mild  that  it  has  been  necessary 
10  cease  hauling  in  some  instances,  and 
as  the  result  a  shortage  in  the  log  crop 
may  be  encounteted.  This  condition  has 
further  strengthened  the  white  pine  mar- 
ket. Eastern  dealers  report  that  ihey 
have  sufficient  orders  on  hand  to  keep 
them  busy  for  another  month.  A  general 
advance  in  the  price  of  low  grade  pine 
seems  to  be  due,  and  it  is  the  wonder  of 
the  trade  that  it  has  not  taken  place. 
Hardwood  prices  are  showing  a  tendency 
to  advance.  Considering  the  light  stock 
of  most  grades,  prices  are  not  as  high 
proportionately  as  white  pine.  Numetous 
inquiries  are  reported  for  maple  and  ash. 
Lath  are  scarce  and  high  in  price. 
Dealers  are  picking  up  shingles  wherever 
they  can,  and  although  the  sawing 
season  may  open  earlier  than  usual,  the 
supply  is  not  likely  to  be  more  than 
equal  to  the  demand.  Best  18-inch 
hemlock  shingles  are  quoted  in  New 
York  at  $3.15  to  $3.20,  and  clear  pine  at 
$3.75.  Hemlock  boards  and  piece  stuff 
are  selling  in  the  Saginaw  valley  at  $11 
and  $12.50.  At  North  Tonawanda  the 
base  price  for  hemlock  is  $13.50  to 
$14.00. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 

The  position  of  the  British  market  has 
not  materially  changed.  Operations  in 
Baltic  and  Swedish  goods  have  been 
characterized  by  indifference,  while  the 
buying  of  Canadian  lumber  has  been  of  a 
more  careful  character  than  usual.  The 
standard  sizes  of  deals  are  meeting  with 
a  ready  sale,  but  there  is  much  difficulty 
in  disposing  of  inferior  qualities.  A 
report  from  Manchester  states  that  spruce 
deals  are  offering  c.i.f.  for  the  coming 
season  at  about  15  shillings  a  standard 
under  the  highest  figures  touched  in  iQOij 
but  even  at  these  prices  buyers  are  not 
eager  to  close  contracts.  This  statement 
no  doubt  refers  to   New  Brunswick  and

Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition 


March  12,  1902 


Nova  Scotia  spruce,  as  it  is  understood 
that  a  considerable  quantity  of  Quebec 
spruce  has  been  placed  through  the  usual 
channels.  The  present  stocks  in  Man- 
chester and  Liverpool  contain  a  large 
quantity  of  7  and  8  inch  deals,  9  x  3  and 
11x3  being  very  scarce.  The  claim  is 
made  that  in  recent  years  shippers  have 
reduced  the  quantity  of  wide  sizes  in 
their  specifications,  and  while  the  usual 
cut  of  deals  formerly  contained  25  per 
cent.  11x3  and  40  per  cent.  9  by  3,  riow 
10  and  15  per  cent,  respectively  are  all 
that  is  included,  the  practice  being  to 
take  out  the  wide  deals  and  sell  them  at 
enhanced  prices.  It  is  contended  that 
this  practice  is  not  satisfactory  to  the 
British  importer.  The  demand  for 
timber  is  steady;  waney  pine  and  rock  elm 
are  scarce  and  strong,  while  square  pine 
and  soft  elm  are  inactive  and  weaker. 
There  is  a  large  stock  of  ash  at  several 
pons,  as  owing  to  the  high  price  sub- 
stitutes are  being  used  to  some  ex'ent. 


STOCKS  AND  PRICES 

The  city  of  Kingston,  Ont.,  is  asking 
for  tenders  up  to  the  13th  insl.  for  the 
supply  of  200,000  feet  B.  M.  of  pine  plank, 
3,  2  and  1^  inch,  and  40,000  lineal  feet  of 
cedar  sleepers,  5x4  inch. 

Thomas  Pitts  &  Company,  of  Bay  City, 
sold  on  March  1st  to  Cleveland  parties 
8,000,000  feet  of  lumber  to  be  manu- 
factured at  Cutler,  Ont.,  this  season. 
The  price  is  not  given, but  is  understood  to 
be  about  $16.50. 

The  wharf  to  be  built  by  the  Dominion 
Government  at  Caraquet,  N.  B.,  will 
require  306,000  feet  of  spruce  timber, 
98,000  feet  hemlock  timber,  142,000  feet 
birch  timber,  to  be  sawed,  1,370,000  feet 
hemlock  logs,  and  63,000  lineal  feet  ballast 
poles,  of  spruce,  7  inches  at  top.  The 
contractors  for  this  work  are  Simons  & 
Burpee,  of  Gibson,  N.  B. 

Sims  Bros.,  of  Little  Current,  Ont., 
confirm  the  report  that  they  have  sold 
this  season's  cut  of  logs  to  the  Edward 
Hines  Lumber  Company,  of  Chicago, 
They  advise  us  that  they  have  also 
just  sold  last  year's  cut  of  white  pine  to 
Potter,  Teare  &  Company  and  the  Sag- 
inaw Bay  Company,  ot  Cleveland.  Good 
prices  were  realized  in  each  case,  the 
sales  aggregating-  about  $100,000. 

Concerning-  the  Barbadoes  lumber  mar- 
ket Messrs.  S.  P.  Musson,  Son  &  Com- 
pany, in  their  report  of  February  i^thi 
say  :  "Arrivals  have  again  been  free 
during  the  fortnight,  and  the  market  con- 
tinues in  an  overstocked  condition.  The 
"Rachael  H.  Boyd"  has  arrived  with  a 
cargo  of  30,000 feet  spruce  and  76,000  feet 
white  pine.  The  former  was  placed  at 
$17.25  for  shipping  and  $12.25  f°r  second 


quality,  and  $11.50  for  inferior.  The 
"Foster  Rice"  arrived  on  6th  insl.  from 
Annapolis,  N.S.,  with  220,000  feet  white 
pine,  which  had  been  sold  to  the  con- 
tractor to  H.  M.  Forces,  for  delivery  at 
Antigua.  The  "Congo"  arrived  on  the 
7U1  from  Weymouth,  N.  S.,  with  130,000 
shipping  white  pine  and  53,000  feet 
second  quality,  and  on  the  12th  the 
"Damietta  &  Joanna"  arrived  from'Calais 
to  our  address  with  57,000  feet  while  pine 
boards,  37,000  feet  white  pine  plank,  and 
12,000  feet  spruce  scantling,  which  we 
placed  at  $20.10  for  shipping  and  $15. 10 
for  second  quality  boards,  $16.00  for 
shipping  and  $11.00  for  second  quality 
plank,  and  $12.00  for  second  quality 
spruce  scantling.  This  steamer  brought 
2,000,000  cedar  laying  shingles,  of  which 
1,000,000  was  placed  on  contract  at 
$2.00  ;  the  remainder,  owing  to  dealers 
being  filled  up,  brought  only  $1.70. 


THE  GLASGOW  MARKET. 

The  following  review  of  the  Glasgow- 
timber  market  is  furnished  by  Messrs. 
Edmiston  &  Mitchells,  under  date  of  28th 
February  : 

There  has  been  more  activity  in  the 
timber  trade  this  month  than  last,  and  a 
fair  amount  of  business  has  been  done  at 
firm  prices.  Several  shipments  of  Quebec 
and  Lower  Port  spruce  and  red  pine  are 
rived  during  February,  and  in  all  cav.es  a 
sale  was  effected  from  the  ship,'  side  at 
satisfactory  prices.  The  amount  of  busi- 
ness done  here  in  contracting  forward  for 
Quebec  timber  and  deals  has  been  of  only 
moderate  dimensions,  due  no  doubt  to  the 
high  prices  quoted  by  the  shippers.  White 
pine,  both  in  logs  and  deals,  contiunes 
very  dear,  and  seems  likely  to  continue  so 
from  all  appearances.  Deliveries  from 
stock  have  been  reasonably  well  maintain- 
ed during  the  month,  and  of  pine  goods 
particularly  the  amount  on  hand  must  now 
be  very  small. 

The  Clyde  shipbuilding  returns  show 
that  16  vessels,  aggregating  about  41,000 
tons,  were  launched,  compared  with  15 
vessels  of  60,000  tons  at  the  same  period 
last  year.  Unfortunately  the  amount  of 
new  business  being  placed  is  bv  no  means 
considerable,  which  is  not  surprising,  in 
face  of  the  low  freights'  ruling.  The 
house-building  trade  is  showing  a  con- 
siderable revival  fortunately,  and  new 
work  amounting  to  about  half  a  million 
sterling  has  been  fixed  during  the  past 
two  months. 

White  Pine— Businessduringthe  month 
has  been  quiet.  We  hear  ot  no  transac- 
tions in  waney  boardwood,  but  there  have 
been  a  few  sales  of  first-class  squ  re 
deckwood,  prices  ranging  from  2s.  6d.  to 
2s.  9d.  per  cubic  foot,  according  to  size. 
The  stock  of  first  quality  waney  pine  is 
practically  exhausted  in  first  hands.  There 
is,  however,  more  than  sufficient  of  square 
wood  for  prospective  wants. 

RED  Pine— We  hear  of  no  sales  to  re- 
port. Prices,  however,  are  firm,  the 
stock  being  low. 

°AK — There  has  been  a  fairly  good 
demand  during   the  'month,    chiefly  for

medium-sized  wood,  and  we  hear  of  a 
parcel  or  two  of  small  wood,  12  to  14 
inches,  being  cleared  at  2s.  <jd.  to  2s.  1  id. 
per  cubic  foot.  -g 

ELM — There  has  been  a  moderate  en- 
quiry during  the  month,  and  quite  a  num- 
ber of  sales.  Prices  of  first-class  rock  elm 
are  firm,  but  there  is  a  disposition  to  ac- 
cept lower  prices  tor  soft  elm,  as  the  stock 
of  this  class  is  heavy. 

Quebec  Birch— The  amount  of  business 
done  during  the  month  has  been  only 
trifling,  and  prices  are  unchanged  at  about 
i6d.  for  14  inch  average.  The  stock  on 
hand  is  small,  and  there  is  very  little  in- 
quiry. 

N.  S.  Birch— The  stock  on  hand  moves 
off  very  slowly,  and  prices  show  no  im- 
provement at  a  penny  over-  the  inch. 

Quebec  Planks— The  stock  of  Quebec 
planks  have  been  cleared  out,  but  There  is 
still  a  large  amount  of  Lower  Port  planks 
on  hand.  A  shipment  of  about  100  stan- 
dards Halifax  planks  arrived  this  month, 
and  was  disposed  of  at  £6  10s.  per  stan- 
dard "ex  quay"  terms. 


Ash— The  market  continues  to  be  quite 
unusually  dull,  and  the>-e  is  not  now  the 
demand  that  used  to  exist  in  this  market. 
When  the  price  was  raised  so  much  a  year 
or  two  ago,  the  principii  consumers  or 
Quebec  ash  looked  out  for  a  cheaper  sub- 
stitute anJ  found  it  in  poplar,  and  now  a 
number  of  them  prefer  the  latter.  The 
stock  on  hand  is  large,  and  is  ample  for 
requirements  for  some  time  to  come. 


THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

Again  a  snow-storm  has  made  a  quiet 
market  on  spruce  lumber.  But  if  orders 
are  wanted— anything  that  has  to  be 
sawn— full  prices  have  to  be  paid. 
Small  randoms  on  the  market,  in  car- 
goes that  must  be  sold,  hardly  bring 
full  prices,  but  even  such  lumber  prom- 
ises to  do  better  as  soon  as  house- 
building starts.  Quotations  are  steady  : 
Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20  ;  9  inch 
and  under,  $18  ;  10  and  12  inch  random 
lengths,  10  feet  and  up,  $19  to  $19.50;  2x3,

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  kn  >w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 

this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  Orders  sent  to  us  by  letter  or 
telegraph  shall  have  our  best  attention. 

We  want  our  share  ot  your  shingle   business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

As  the  season  advances  the  outlook  for 
)  the  lumber  trade  becomes  more  promis- 
ing.     The  number    of    permits  issued 
within  the  past  fortnight  for  new  buildings 
10  be  built  in  the  city  of  Toronlo  shows  lhat 
a  large  quantity  of  lumber  will  be  consumed 
n    building   operations.    It    now  seems 
probable  that  serious   labor   troubles  in 
thai   cily  will  be  averted,  in  which  case  a 
s   ison  of  great  activity  may  confidently 
]  be  predicted.    In  other  parts  of  the  pro- 
'  \  ince  there  promises  to  be  more  building 
I  than  last  year.     The  lumber  market  re- 
ceived an  unexpected  boom  by  the  recent 
1  mild  weather,  which  almost  put  an  end  to 
,  logging  operations   for    the  time  being, 
is  doubtful  whether  iriere  will  be  suffi- 
cient cold  weather,  accompanied    by  the 
necessary   snow    fall,    during   the  next 
month  to  enable  logging  operations  to  be 
completed  as  arranged,  while  it  is  feared 
that  there  will  be  a  scarcity  of  water  for 
the  drives  this    spring.    It    is  predicted 
lhat  weather  conditions  will   curtail  the 
quantity  of  logs  available  for  this  year's 
sawing  by  at  least  20  per  cent. 

The  stocks  at  the  mills  are  so  small 
that  buyers  are  finding  difficulty  in  obtain- 
ing the  necc  ssary  assortments.  There  is 
practically  no  good  lumber  in  white  pine 
that  has  not  been  contracted  for.  Of  the 
common  grades  the  supply  is  more  plenti- 
ful, although  it  is  estimated  that  nothing 
will  be  left  in  the  yards  when  the  mills 
resume  operations.  Some  manufacturers 
are  asking  $14.50  to  $15.50  for  box  and 
common,  the  latter  for  12  to  16  feet 
lengths.  For  1  by  10  and  12  inch  mill  culls 
$12  at  the  mill  is  asked.  Hemlock  lumber 
sells  on  the  basis  of  $9.50  for  2  x  4  up  to 
12  inch,  in  lengths  from  12  to  14  feet.  It 
is  almost  impossible  to  give  a  quotation  on 
white  pine  shingles,  as  very  few  manufac- 
turers have  any  for  sale.  For  No.  1  pine 
lath  as  high  as  $2.85  at  the  mill  has  been 
asked,  but  the  average  quotation  is  about 
$2.75. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 

T.iere  is  not  so  much  life  to  the  spruce 
market  as  earlier  in  the  year.  The  fact 
that  the  British  trade  has  not  improved  to 
the  extent  that  was  expected  has  restricted 
the  volume  of  buying  on  that  account,  but 
holders  of  Quebec  spruce  deals  are  show- 
ing no  anxiety  as  to  the  future,  believing 
that  the  market  will  absorb  the  supply  at 
good  prices.  Fancy  prices  are  being 
paid  for  clapboards  for  shipment  to  the 
United  States,  where  the  supply  is  very 
light.  The  quotation  for  No.  1,  Boston 
delivery,  is  $38.    Cedar  shingles  continue 


to  sell  on  the  basis  of  $3.30  for  extras. 
The  log  supply  has  become  an  important 
factor  in  the  market.  What  is  believed  to 
be  an  early  breaking  up  of  winter  has 
resulted  in  the  decision  of  one  or  two 
operators  not  to  attempt  to  drive  their 
logs  this  year,  as  unless  there  should  be 
large  snow-falls  within  the  next  month, 
the  streams  will  not  be  suitable  for  driving 
purposes.  It  is  estimated  that  the  cut 
this  year  on  the  Upper  St.  John  river  in 
New  Brunswick  was  about  130,000,000 
feet,  which  is  about  the  same  as  last  year. 
On  the  Lower  St.  John,  however,  unfavor- 
able weather  conditions  curtailed  the 
output.  The  total  cut  of  spruce  logs  this 
winter  was  perhaps  slightly  less  than  one 
year  ago,  with  the  probability  thai  a  con- 
siderable proporjiqn  of.the  production  will 
not  reach  the  mills  for  this  season's  sawing. 

UNITED  STATES. 

Our  Albany  price  list  this  week  shows 
an  advance  of  one  dollar  per  thousand  in 
the  price  of  1  to  2  inch  fine  common 
and  1  by  12  inch  shippers.  This  indicates 
the  tendency  of  the  white  market.  The 
recent  mild  weather  has  stimulated  the 
buying  of  lumber.  Dealers  are  picking  up 
stock  in  the  Lake  Superior  district  and 
are  paying  prices  which  a  few  months 
ago  would  have  been  regarded  as  ex- 
cessive. There  is  an  active  demand  for 
No.  4  boards.  This  is  one  of  the  hopeful 
features  of  the  white  pine  situation,  as 
the  supply  of  lower  grades,  while  not 
large,  is  much  greater  than  of  good  lum- 
ber. Should  the  demand  develop  as  now 
seems  probable,  something  approaching  a 
famine  in  white  pine  will  likely  be  exper- 
ienced, particularly  as  the  available  crop 
of  logs  for  the  sawing  season  has  been 
reduced  in  quantity  by  the  recent  mild 
weather.  Spruce  lumber  is  firm.  The 
amount  of  dry  stock  on  hand  is  gradually 
decreasing,  whereas  the  new  cut  will  not 
be  in  shipping  condition  for  some  time 
yet.  Hemlock  lumber  has  improved  of 
late.  An  advance  of  one  dollar  per  thous- 
and has  been  made,  the  base  price  being 
$14.50  at  Buffalo.  $15  at  Albany,  $16  at 
New  York,  and  $17  at  Boston.  It  is 
claimed  that  the  demand  is  greiter  than 
the  supply.  Hardwoods  are  stronger. 
Thick  white  ash  has  advanced  at  Buffalo 
to  $35  to  $37  for  1%  to  2  inch,  and  $40  to 
$42  for  2%  to  4  inch.  Birch  is  b  ing  used 
quite  largely  lor  house  finish.  Bassvvood 
is  meeting  with  a  larger  inquiry.  A  mark- 
ed shortage  of  lathis  reported  from  pro- 
ducing points  and  from  eastern  wholesale 
markets.  In  Chicago  the  yard  quota- 
tion on  No.  1  white  pine  lathis  $4.25,  and 
on  No.  2  mixed  and  Norway  $g.7S.  At 


1 1. 


Duluthand  Ashland  No.  i  is  bringing 
$3-75.  and  No.  2  $3.25  in  large  quantities, 
and  25  cents  more  in  car  load  lots. 
Shingles  are  firm  in  price,  and  the  de- 
mand is  increasing.  It  is  predicted  that 
extra  A  red  cedar  shingles  will  bring  $3 
in  the  Minneapolis  market  before  the  close 
of  this  year.  The  present  price  is  $2.65. 
Clear  white  pine  shingles  are  bringing 
$3.40  in  Chi  cago. 

CiREAT  BRITAIN. 
We  cannot  report  a  material  improve- 
ment in  the  British  timber  market.  Very 
little  buying  is  being  done  by  importers, 
as  there  is  an  impression  that  the  prices 
which  shippers  are  asking  are  too  high, 
and  that   sooner  or  later  they   must  be 
adjusted  to  the  level  of  the  market.  The 
consumption  is   moderately  active,  but 
dealers  are  obtaining  their  requirements 
from  the   stocks   now   landed,  which  in 
most  cases  can  be  bought  on  more  liberal 
terms  than  in  the  case  of  new  stock  to 
arrive.      First  quality  pine  deals  of  broad 
average  are  inquired  for,  and  recent  sales 
have  been  made   at  high    prices.  The 
lower  qualities  are  less  firm.     The  outlook 
for  spruce  does  not  seem  to  be  as  good  as 
it  was  two  months  ago.    Prices  at  auction 
sales  have   shown  weakness,  3x7  un- 
assorted selling  as  low  as  £7  5S,  and  a 
small  lot  of  third  quality  Quebec  spruce, 
3x11,  at  about  £8  1  os.    The  slock  of 
waney  timber  at  Glasgow  and  Liverpool 
is  small  and  there  has  been  some  activ- 
ity in  demand.    Messrs.  Denny,  Mott  and 
Dickson  state  that  the  attempt  to  substitute 
swamp  elm  for  Canadian  rock  elm  has 
caused  much  friction  and  dissatisfaction  to 
dealers  and  cousumers  in  Great  Britain. 


Canada  Lumberman  Weekly  Edition 


Some  of  the  lumber  will  be  shipped  to  the 
United  States  and  the  balance  sold  in  the

STOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

Mill  culls  are  held  as  high  as  $15  by 
some  Buffalo  dealers.  The  range  of  box 
lumber  is  from  $17  to  $25. 

Butler  Bros.,  of  Woodstock,  Ont.,  have 
recently  made  an  extensive  purchase 
shingles  in  British  Columbia. 

John  Cameron,  of  Watson's  Corners, 
Ont.,  has  sold  100,000  feet  of  pine  lumber 
to  H.  is.  Toffey,  of  Portland,  and  50,000 
feet  to  T.  B.  Caldwell,  of  Lanark. 

R.  A.  Brown,  of  Grand  Forks,  B.  C.,  is 
taking  out  2,700,000  ft.  of  logs  on  the  north 
fork  of  the  Kettle  river,  to  be  manufac- 
tured at  the  mill  of  Lequime  &  Powers  on 
bmelter  Lake. 

W.  H.  McAuliffe,  of  Ottawa,  has  pur-

LUMBER 


There  are  in  the  St.  John  river  above 
and  below  the  Fredericton  booms  and  at 
Grand  Falls,  N  B.,  about  30,000,000 feet  of 
loose  logs  which  have  come  down  from 
the  drives  and  are  now  in   the  ice.     \i  , 
meeting   of    representative  lumbermen 
held   last  week,  tenders    were  opened 
for  delivering  the  logs  at  the  different 
mills,  but  as  they  were  considered  too 
lg h;JtJwas  decided  that  the  lumbermen 
should  do  the  work  themselves,  under  the 
direction  of  J.  Fraser  Gregory.     The  loes 
are   so  situated   that    should     the  ice 
suddenly  run  the  logs  would  be  in  danger 
ot  being  carried  out  to  the  sea.

TRADE  OPENINGS. 

The  following  were  among  the  enquiries 
relating  to  Canadian  trade  received  at  the 
Canadian  Government  Office  in  London 
during  the  week  ending  lolh  March,  1902. 
The  names  of  the  parties  may  be  obtained 
from  the  publishers  of  this  journal. 

Inquiry  is  made  by  an  Irish  house  for 
all  classes  of  timber,  spruce  sheetings, 
floorings,  mouldings,  etc. 

A  London  agent  has  a  demand  for 
birch,  maple,  oak  and  pitch  pine  wood 
blocks  for  flooring  ;  c.i.f.  any  port  in  the 
United  Kingdom  ;  also  for  furniture  wood 
and  coffins  and  caskets  in  shook. 

Inquiry  is  made  by  a  wholesale  station- 
ery firm  for  Canadian  mills  turning  out 
large  quantifies  of  in. mill.  1  folding  box 
boards. 

A  London  importer  has  asked  to  be 
referred  to  Canadian  makers  of  turned 
wood  boxes  and  other  similar  wood  goods, 


also  spindles,  broom  handles,  etc.  To 
parties  who  could  fill  orders  promptly, 
considerable  business  might  result. 


The  shingle  mill  of  the  British  C«iumbia 

Manufacturing  Co.  on  False  Creek,  near 
Vancouver,  B.C.,  was  destroyed  by  fire 
last  week.  The  capacity  of  the  mill  was 
76,000  shingles  per  day,  and  the  loss  is 
estimated  at  $12,000.

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  vve  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  kn  >w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improve8  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 

the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

With  one  exception  the  outlook  for  the 
lumber  trade  is  of  the  brightest  char- 
acter. That  exception  is  the  possibility  of 
labor  troubles  in  one  or  two  of  the  larger 
cities  of    the   province.     Whether  the 
present  difficulties    will    be  amicably 
arranged  is  a  matter  of  much  uncertainty, 
but   with  this   obstacle   removed  there 
will  doubtless  be  a   large    amount  of 
uuilding  throughout  the  province.  The 
demand  for  lumber  during  March  was 
considerably  greater  than  in  the  previous 
month.     The  heavy  buying  by  United 
States   concerns  has  continued.     It  is 
estimated  by  one  who  recently  visited 
Georgian  Bay  manufacturing  points  that 
the  greater  portion  of  the  coming  sea- 
son's production  has  already  been  con- 
tracted for.     This  is  probably  correct, 
inasmuch  as  the  possible  production  has 
been  reduced  by  the  early  breaking  up 
of  logging  operations.     In  addition  to 
the  shortage  in  the  quantiiy  of  logs  that 
will  reach  the  streams,  it  is  probable  that 
there  will  be  low  water  for  driving  and 
that  many  logs  that  have  been  success- 
fully  banked  will  not  reach  the  mills. 
The   weather  conditions  of  this  spring 
would  seem  to  have  removed  all  pros- 
pects ot  lower  prices  for  white  pine  dur- 
ing this  year,  and  it  would  not  be  surpris- 
ing if  there  should  be  a  material  apprecia- 
tion in  some  grades.    Even  if  the  British 
market  should  continue  depressed,  there 
will  be  no  difficulty  in  marketing  all  the 
lumber  manufactured,  as  a  considerable 
shortage  in  the  production  of  the  United 
States  is  predicted.    Hardwoods  hnve  at 
last  followed  the  course  of  white  pine  and 
are  showing  improvement.    The  buying 
is  of  a  character  which  augurs  well  for 
the  future.    Dealers  report  no  difficulty 
in  effecting  sales.    One  dealer  who  took 
the  road  for  a  couple  of  days  ostensibly 
for  the  purpose  of  getting  in  touch  with 
the  situation  reports  that  he  was  given 
orders  for  several  carloads  of  hardwoods. 
The  more  sanguine  ones  predict  that 
there  will  be  a  decided  shortage  in  hard- 
wood lumber  during  the   year,  as  dry 
stocks  are  not  large  and  the  productiou 
of  logs  last  winter  was  much  below  the 
average,  perhaps  not  more  than  one-half 
that  of  1900.      In  a  certain  section  of  the 
Wiarton  district  where  three  million  feet 
of  hardwood  logs  were  taken  out  one 
year  ago,  not  more  than  one  million  was 
cut  the  past  winter.   In  quality,  however, 


the  logs  are  beiter  than  usual.  There  is 
a  good  demand  for  cedar  and  hemlock, 
of  which  the  stock  is  light.  Hemlock 
readily  brings  $9.50  at  the  mills.  White 
pine  shingles  and  lath  are  practically 
out  of  the  market  and  buyers  have  almost 
given  up  searching  for  them.  Hemlock 
shingles  are  bringing  $2.40  and  $2.50  at 
the  mill. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
In  order  to  take  advantage  of  the 
exceptionally  low  freight  rates  now  ruling, 
a  considerable  quantity  of  deals  has  been 
shipped  to  England  by  the  regular  liners 
from  St.  John  to  Halifax.  Accordingly, 
the  small  wintering  stocks  at  these  ports 
and  on  the  Miramichi  will  be  almost 
depleted  by  the  opening  of  navigation, 
and  the  first  open-water  shipments  are 
likely  to  be  lighter  than  usual.  The 
market  for  spruce  deals  is  likely  to  be 
firm  through  the  spring  months  at  least, 
and  the  early  breaking  up  of  winter  can- 
not but  have  the  effect  of  strengthening 
prices.  The  present  indications  are  that 
the  stock  of  logs  which  will  reach  the 
mills  will  not  be  sufficient  for  the  season's 
requirements  and  will  bring  about  a 
reduction  in  the  lumber  output.  It  is 
expected  that  large  shipments  will  this 
year  be  made  to  South  America,  France 
and  Germany.  There  will  be  consider- 
able activity  this  season  in  square  and 
waney  timber,  as  it  is  estimated  that  the 
cut  during  the  past  winter  was  consider- 
ably greater  than  usual.  There  con- 
tinues to  be  a  good  demand  for  clap- 
boards and  shingles  for  shipment  to  the 
Eastern  States. 

MANITORA  AND  BRITISH  COLUMBIA. 

Building  operations  in  Winnipeg  are 
starting  off  with  a  boom,  and  promise  to 
be  more  brisk  than  for  some  years. 
Architects  have  plans  in  hand  for  many 
important  buildings,  including  one  to  be 
built  by  Lord  Strathcona  which  will  cost 
about  $1150,000  and  will  require  nearly 
one  million  feet  of  lumber.  The  extent 
of  the  lumber  demand,  however,  will  be 
to  some  extent  in  proportion  to  the  move- 
ment of  wheat.  At  the  present  time  im- 
mense quantities  of  wheat  have  not  been 
moved  and  elevators  are  being  built  to 
accommodate  the  surplus  of  last  season's 
record  crop.  Prices  of  lumber  and 
shingles  are  unchanged,  although  an  ad- 
vance in  the  price  of  British  Columbia 
fir  flooring  and  some  lines  of  British 
Columbia  cedarlumber  is  talked  of.  The 
umbet  trade  of  British  Columbia  is  quite

active.  Seven  vessels  are  loading  lum- 
ber at  Vancouver  for  export,  shippers 
evidently  wishing  lo  take  advantage  of 
the  present  low  freights.  Large  orders 
have  been  placed  with  Vancouver  mills 
for  piles  for  shipment  to  the  Phillipine 
Islands,  but  it  is  feared  that  the  exporta- 
tion of  piles  is  prohibited  by  the  recent 
legislation.  There  is  an  active  demand 
for  cedar  logs  and  prices  have  advanced 
$2  per  thousand  feet.  The  price  of 
shingles  is  also  firmer,  although  no  sus- 
tained advance  is  looked  for. 

UNITED  STATES. 

The  probability  of  an  early  opening  of 
navigation   is   regarded    favorably  by 
wholesale  dealers  in  the  Eastern  States 
whose  stocks  of  white  pine  have  become 
broken  and  who  feared  that  they  would 
not  have  a  sufficient  supply  for  their  cus- 
tomers.    The   demand  in   the  east  is 
showing  considerable  activity,  even  the 
lower  grades   being   more  inquired  for 
than     for   some    time.     Further  ad- 
vances have  been  made  in  the  price  of  up- 
pers, which  are  now  selling  in  the  Buffalo 
market  at  $70  for  1  to  2  inch  and  $75  for 
i\  to  4   inch.    Inch   No   1  cutting-up 
stock  has  been  advanced  to  $40  at  Buf- 
falo and  Tonawanda.    Our  Bay  City  list 
this  week  shows  an  advance  of  $2  in  1  to 
2  inch  uppers  and  1  to  1^  inch  selects,and 
$4   in    No.    2   inch   cutting-up  stock. 
Twelve-inch  barn  boards  in  all  grades 
are  marked  up   $2.    There   is  a  great 
scarcity  of  12-inch  boards.  Manufactur- 
ers in    the   Lake  Superior   district  will 
endeavor  to  make   a   large   cut  in  the 
sawing  season  now  approaching,  but  the 
short  supply  of  logs  will   likely  restrict 
the  production.    The  spruce  situation  is 
gaining   strength.     Special  frames  for 
immediate  delivery  are  quoted  fifty  cents 
higher,    while     randoms    are  a  little 
weaker.    Hardwoods  are  going  into  con- 
sumption quite  freely.    Dry  stocks  have 
become  nearly  exhausted  and  the  out- 
look is  encouraging  for  higher  prices  for 
all  kinds  of  hardwoods.    Basswood  and 
oak  are  particularly  scarce.    Birch  is  in 
good  demand,  but  ash  and  maple  are 
moving  slower  than  the  other  varieties. 
The  recent  advance  in  the  price  of  hem- 
lock lumber  has  been  maintained  and 
has  apparently  not  affected  the  consump- 
tion, as  the  demand  continues  strong. 
The  manufacturers  in  Michigan  recently 
made  an  advance  of  $1.50  per  thousand. 


where  stocks  are  low.  For  prime  timber 
2s  to  2s  4d  per  cubic  foot  is  readily  ob- 
tainable. Good  ash  logs  are  likewise  in 
request,  the  quotation  for  them  being 
about  2s  per  cubic  foot. 

So  far  as  buying  of  this  year's  produc 
tion  is  concerned,  we  are  told  that  little 
progress  has  been  made,  and  that  ship- 
pers and  importers  must  come  nearer  to- 
gether in  their  ideas  of  prices  before 
there  will  be  much  life  to  the  trade.  Nev- 
ertheless, Canadian  shippers  are  said  to 
have  met  with  fair  success.  It  is  report- 
ed that  they  have  reduced  their  prices  in 
some  instances  and  have  made  sales  at 
£9  c.  i.  f.  for  3x9  second  quality  spruce 
and  ^8  10s  for  third  quality.  A  report 
from  Belfast,  Ireland,  states  that  there 
has  been  considerable  business  done  in 
Canadian  spruce  for  spring  shipment  at 
advanced  prices,  although  it  is  believed 
that  the  market  will  weaken  towards  mid- 
summer. Sales  of  waney  board  pine  have 
been  made  at  very  satisfactory  figures. 


STOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

Gilmour  &  Company  will  have  a 
quantity  of  lumber  cut  this  season  at 
Carew's  mill  at  Lindsay,  Ont. 

The  Rathbun  Company,  of  Deseronto, 
took  out  some  35,000  logs  and  railway 
ties  in  Cavendish  township  during  the 
past  winter. 

Present  quotations  for  shingles  at 
Buffalo  ate  $4.50  for  the  best  grade  of 
18-inch  pine  and  $4.25  for  red  cedar 
Perfections. 


GREAT  BRITAIN. 

The  desire  of  importers  to  reduce  their 
stocks  before  the  new  goods  arrive  is  re- 
sponsible for  a  large  quantity  of  lumber 
being  offered  at  auction  during  ihe  past 
fortnight.  Spruce  and  pine  deals  com- 
prised almost  the  entire  catalogue  of  a 
sale  by  Foy,  Morgan  &  Company,  Lon- 
don, on  March  12th.  Prices  on  the  whole 
were  well  maintained,  although  odd  sizes 
did  not  sell  nearly  as  well  as  regulars,  the 
quantity  of  which  is  quite  limited.  Fiist 
quality  Quebec  pine  3x11  brought  ^24 
15s  for  1 1  feet  and  3x9  inch  £18.  Second 
quality  3x11  sold  at  $16.  Quebec  spruce 
was  well  taken  on  the  basis  of  £9  5s 
for  3x9  inch  third  quality.  The  red  pine 
was  in  little  demand,  and  it  is  said  that 
the  ptices  realized  in  many  cases  repre- 
sent a  loss  'othe  importers. 

There  is  considerable  buying  of  square 
timber.  Oak  suitable  for  wagon  making 
is  in  demand,  particularly  in  Scrit'and, 


The  Revelstoke  Lumber  Company, 
Revelstoke,  B.  C,  have  secured  a  stock 
of  about  3,500,000  feet  of  logs  for  this 
season's  sawing  operations. 

James  Ludgate,  of  Seguin  Falls,  has 
taken  a  contract  to  drive  all  the  logs  for 
the  William  Peter  Estate  and  the  Parry 
Sound  Lumber  Company  that  go  down 
the  Seguin  river. 

The  Saginaw  Lumber  &  Salt  Company, 
of  Sandwich,  Ont.,  put  in  200,000  feet 
of  board  pine  last  winter  in  the  Georgian 
Bay  district,  which  has  been  sold  to 
Quebec  parties  for  export. 

It  is  reported  that  J.  &  T.  Charlton,  of 
Collingwood,  have  sold  their  entire 
season's  cut,  the  last  sale  reported  being 
6,000,000  feet  of  white  pine  to  Fish, 
Bradley  &  Company,  of  Bay  City,  Mich. 

The  cooperage  market  does  not  show 
the  normal  amount  of  activity  for  this 
season.  Stock  is  offered  freely.  In  the 
Minneapolis  district  some  strength  is 
exhibited  and  $8.50  is  being  asked  for 
No.  1  Michigan  staves. 

Tonawanda  and  Buffalo  dealers  are 
reported  to  have  purchased  about  10,- 
000,000  feet  of  white  pine  from  the  On- 
tario Lumber  Company,  to  be  manufac- 
tured this  season  at  the  company's  mills 
at  French  River,  Ont. 

Twenty-seven  car  loads  of  square  tim- 
ber have  been  shipped  this  spring  by 
Mooney  &  McDougall  from  Almonte  to 
Quebec.  The  timber  is  pine,  oak,  ash 
and  rock  elm  and  is  destined  for  the 
Liverpool  market. 

Destructful  floods  occurred  last  week 
in  several  sections  at  New  Brunswick. 
By  the  breaking  of  a  dam  at  Lepreaux 
3,000,000  feet  of  logs  owned  by  J.  A. 
Gregory,  of  St.  John,  were  carried  away. 


They  had  been  cut  and  hauled  along  the 
river  banks  ready  for  the  spring  drive.  Mr. 
Gregory  estimates  his  loss  at  $15,000. 

The  following  vessels  are  loading  lum- 
ber at  Vancouver  .  "Reuce,"  for  Sydney, 
Australia  ;  "Andromeda,"  for  Callao  ; 
"Rose.'  for  Geraldtown  ;  "Amaranth,  for 
Taku  ;  "Adderley,"  for  Sydney  ;  "Prince 
Louis,'  for  Cardiff. 

Keenan  Bros.,  of  Owen  Sound,  Ont., 
have  purchased  the  mill  of  the  Goderich 
Lumber  Company  at  that  place,  together 
with  their  stock  of  dry  lumber  now  in  the 
yard,  amounting  to  about  1,500,000  feet 
of  hemlock,  cedar  and  pine.  They  have 
also  secured  about  3,000,000  feet  of  hem- 
lock and  hardwood  logs  for  this  year  s 
supply,  and  txpect  to  have  the  mill  in 
operation  very  shortly. 

At  a  recent  auction  sale  held  by  Churc- 
hill &  Sim,  London,  England,  oak  tim- 
ber sold  at  a  range  from  82s  6d  per  load 
for  12$  x  18X  inch,  14  to  29  feet  long,  to 
105s  for  10  x  16  in.,  31-47  ft.  Ash  tim- 
ber from  Quebec  sold  at  the  following 
prices:  13-21  in.,  12  to  14  ft.  long,  36s 
per  load;  12*  x  15  in.,  14  to  30  ft.,  55s  ; 
12  1/2  x  15  in.,  14  to  29  ft.,  47s  ;  11  1  2  x 
15  12,  10  to  17  ft.,  45s;  12^  x  15  1/2, 
15  to  30  ft.,  47s;  12^  x  16,  8  to  21  ft., 
45s-  A  small  quantity  of  elm  timber, 
n#  x  12  1  2  in.,  26  feet  long,  brought 
41s  per  load  of  50  cubic  feet. 

It  is  estimated  that  the  cut  of  logs  last 
winter  on  the  South-west  Miramchi,  in 
New  Brunswick,  was  a  little  more  than 
one-half  that  of  the  previous  winter,  the 
shortage  being  due  in  a  large  measure  to 
the  scarcity  of  men  and  the  high  price  of 
supplies.  The  cut  of  the  different  firms 
is  given  as  follows  :  William  Richard  & 
Company,  1 1,000,000  feet  ;  T.  Lynch, 
7,000,000  feet  ;  M.  Welsh,  5,000,000 
feet  ;  H.  Bentley,  3,000,000  feet  ;  E. 
Hutchinson,  500,000  feet,  a  total  of  26,- 
500000  feet.  The  cut  on  the  Resti- 
gouche  river  will  be  about  20,000,000 
feet,  as  compared  with  30,000,000  feet 
one  year  ago. 


THE  OTTAWA  VALLEY. 

(Correspondence  of  the  Canada  Lumberman.) 

Business  is  dull  in  local  lumber  circles 
shipments  by  rail  being  light.  The  Ameri- 
can inquiry  is  not  as  active  as  it  was  a 
month  ago,  but  better  things  are  ex- 
pected with  the  resumption  of  operations 
at  the  mills. 

It  is  now  a  settled  fact  that  the  new  mill 
talked  of  for  several  months  will  not  be 
built  before  the  autumn  months  at  the 
earliest,  and  perhaps  not  till  next  spring. 
Difficulty  over  the  question  of  transpor- 
tation has  caused  a  delay.  The  mill  will 
probably  be  built  at  Deschenes. 

All  last  year  s  mills  will  be  operated 
again  this  season,  and  the  small  mill  on 
the  Bronson  property  at  the  Chaudiere, 
may  be  fitted  up  for  a  season's  cutting. 
Gillies  Bros,  will  operate  four  mills,  one 
Braeside,  one  at  Black  Point,  one  at 
Sandy  Hook,  and  one  at  Folger. 

A  gentleman  who  has  just  returned 
from  the  Kippewa  and  Temiscamingue 
districts  confirms  the  report  that  the 
recent  thaw  has  placed  several  of  the 
lumber  operators  in  a  tight  corner  as 
regards  the  movement  of  their  logs.  All, 
however,  hope  to  get  most  of  this  season's 
cut  out  of  the  woods  before  the  roads 
break-up.  One  feature  of  the  winter's 
operations  was  the  amount  of  square  tim- 
ber produced.    It  was  equal  to  that  of 


any  year  in  the  previous  decade.  Fully 
1,500,000  cubic  feet  of  square  timber  will 
be  rafted  and  floated  down  the  Ottawa 
during  the  coming  summer.  Thomas 
Munro,  of  Pembroke,  has  four  rafts,  and 
Robert  Hurdman,  of  Ottawa,  three  rafts, 
the  combined  cut  amounting  to  about 
900,000  cubic  feet.  The  Rideau  Lumber 
Company  got  out  a  couple  of  smaller  rafts 
and  other  operators  gave  the  square  tim- 
ber attention.  Mr.  Munro  will  be  able  to 
get  his  logs  down  early,  as  they  are  piled 
on  the  bank  of  the  main  stream  of  the 
Ottawa.  The  early  break-up  has  made 
the  transfer  of  fodder  and  supplies  to  the 
limits  a  difficult  matter.  Most  of  the 
operators  w.  re  actively  engaged  in  this 
branch  of  the  work  when  the  roads  were 
broken  by  the  thaw.  They  will  have  to 
complete  their  delivery  by  wagon  and 
jumper  at  double  the  ccst. 

A  feature  in  the  market  is  the  good  pros 
pects  for  spruce.  This  lumber  was  looked 
on  for  some  time  past  as  a  poor  seller  at 
low  price.  Reports  trom  New  York  show 
that  it  is  in  increased  demand  and  likely 
to  command  better  prices.  This  will 
prove  gratifying  news  to  mill  owners  who 
are  going  to  cut  any  considerable  quantity 
of  spruce.  The  only  hardwood  that  is  in 
active  demand  is  basswood. 

The  Rideau  Lumber  Company  will  cut 
considerable  stock  at  Hagar  &  Company's 
mill  at  Plantaganet  during  the  coming 
season. 

Mr.  Robert  Hurdman  s  output  of  logs 
for  the  season  just  closing  was  between 
82,000  and  100,000. 

The  best  sale  of  the  past  few  days  was 
that  made  by  Mr.  T.  A.  Low,  of  Renfrew, 
who  sold  3.000,000  feet  of  Barnet  Low  s 
stock  cut  at  their  mill  at  Little  Current  to 
a  North  Tonawanda  firm. 

Xo  change  in  quotations  is  reported  on 
the  local  market.  Lath,  shingles  anp 
deals  remain  firm  in  price. 

Mr.  U  rn.  B.  Bartram,  late  sargeant  of 
Strathcona  s  Horse,  and  now  representing 
Davidson  &  Thackray,  of  Ottawa.in  Cape 
Town  in  the  lumber  business,  has  been 
elected  a  member  of  the  Chamber  of  Com- 
merce for  South  Africa. 

The  government  has  changed  the  posi- 
tion of  the  slides  at  the  Chaudiere  Falls 
on  the  Ottawa  River  in  order  to  improve 
the  water  power  and  faciliate  the  passage 
of  timber. 

Aid.  Charles  Desmarais,  of  Hull,  con- 
tractor for  telephone  and  telegraph  poles, 
reports  the  last  winter's  cut  below  the 
average.  The  deep  snow  and  the  short 
season  combined  to  make  the  work  in  the 
bush  difficult.  Aid.  Desmarais  had  80 
men  at  work  and  secured  about  4,000 
poles  in  the  Gatineau  and  Pontiac  dis- 
tricts. The  supply,  he  states,  is  far  short 
of  the  demand  and  he  has  had  half  a 
dozen  offers  for  his  entire  stock.  He  looks 
for  an  advance  in  price. 

Mr.  Wm.  Mackey,  the  veteran  lumber- 
man who  recently  sold  his  limits  to  Mr.  J. 
R.  Booth  for  $655,000,  has  presented  St. 
Patrick's  R.  C.  church  with  a  new  altar 
costing  $5,000.  It  was  consecrated  on 
St.  Patrick's  Day.  A  tablet  bearing 
mention  and  appreciation  of  Mr.  Mackey's 
generosity  will  be  placed  in  position  in 
the  church  shortly. 

The  prospects  for  the  season's  building 
in  Ottawa  are  good.  Rumors  of  strikes 
furnish  the  only  dark  streak  in  the  pros- 
pect. All  the  mill  owners  look  for  an 
active  local  demand.  Shingles  are 
exceedingly  scarce  and  are  bound  to  ad- 
vance in  price  with  the  resumption  of 
building  operations.

THE  BOSTON  MARKET. 

The  outlook  for  spruce  lumber  is  very 
strong.  Freshets  have  carried  supplies  of 
logs  down  river,  while  the  season  for  lum- 
bering and  getting  new  logs  has  been  cut 
most  decidedly  short  by  the  very  early 
departure  of  the  snow.  The  late  drive 
last  year  contained  28,000,000  feet  of  logs 
tor  Bangor.  About  5,000,000  of  these  logs 
were  carried  out  to  sea  by  a  freshet  early 
in  the  winter,  and  now  the  present  freshet 
has  carried  at  least  12,000,000  out  to  sea. 
Hence  the  Bangor  supply  must  be  very 
small  till  new  logs  come  down.  Mean- 
time, the  demand  begins  to  improve, 
with  every  indication  of  a  good  business, 
and  leading  spruce  men  feel  sure  that 
under  such  conditions  prices  are  ex- 
tremely likely  to  go  still  higher,  although 
already  about  the  highest  on  record  : 
Ten  and  12  inch  dimensions,  $20  ;  9  inch 
and  under,  $18  ;  10  and  12  inch  random 
lengths,  to  feet  and  up,  $19.50;  2x3, 
2x4,  2x5,  2x6,  2x7  and  3x4,  10  feet  and

stock,  $15  to  $1550  for  good  eastern; 
Vermont,  $13.50  to  $14.50  ;  random,  east-

to  $3. 


BRITISH  TIMBER  SALE. 

A  large  quantity  of  pine  and  spruce  lum- 
ber was  disposed  of  at  an  auction  sale 
held  by  Foy,  Morgan  &  Company,  Lon- 
don, England,  on  March  12th.  The  large 
quantity  offered  "  without  reserve"  is  said 
to  have  had  a  depressing  effect  on  the 
bidding,  but  on  the  whole  prices  through- 
out were  better  than  anticipated  and  it  is 
considered  that  the  demand  for  both  pine 
and  spruce  is  improving.  This  is  es- 
pecially the  case  with  the  New  Bruns- 
wick spruce.  The  result  of  the  sale  is 
given  below:

GRADING  OF  CANADIAN  PINE 

The  threatened  boycott  of  Canadian 
pine  by  British  importers  as  the  result  of 
the  adoption  by  shippers  of  what  was 
claimed  to  be  a  lower  standard  of  grading 
has  evidently  been  abandoned,  as  in  the 
last  issue  of  the  Timber  Trades  Journal 
we  find  the  following  under  the  heading  of 
"The  Culling  of  Pine": 

"The  sub-commtttee  of  the  Importers' 
Section  of  the  Timber  Trade  Federation 
appointed  to  deal  with  the  culling  of  pine 
has  been  in  correspondence  with  the 
shippers,  the  negotiations  culminating  in 
a  conference  on  Friday  last  week.  A 
circular  has  now  been  issued  by  the  Fed- 
eration, in  which  it  is  stated  that  as  the 


WANTED 

MESSRS.  JOSBPH  OWEN  &  SOWS,  Ltd.,  of 
L  iverpool,  Eng. ,  are  open  to  treat  for  regular  supplies 
of  large  quantities  of  HARDWOOD  LUMBER,  and 
will  be  glad  to  hear  from  holders  who  have  to  ofier

SECOND  GROWTH  HICKORY,  POPLAR  and 
WALNUT,  in  logs,  planks  and  boards,  also  primefresh

Cable  Address  :  LIGNUM,  Manchester    ABC  Code 


result  of  the  interchange  of  views  it  has 
become  evident  to  the  committee  that  the 
resolution  binding  many  members  not  to 
contract  for  new  supplies  of  pine  unless 
shippers  undertook  to  revert  to  the  old 
style  of  bracking  cannot  be  maintained  in 
face  of  circumstances  which  have  been 
brought  under  their  notice.  At  the  same 
time  the  committee  feel  that  the  protest 
which  has  been  made  by  importers  has 
not  been  without  practical  effect  in  em- 
phasizing the  dissatisfaction  which  has 
existed  in  regard  to  the  new  culling, 
which  was  admitted  by  the  representati\ es 
of  the  shippers  to  have  greatly  improved, 
the  bracking  towaids  the  end  of  the  year 
being  better  than  previously.  It  has  been 


explained  to  the  committee  that  as  r  egards 
shipments  for  the  present  season  it  would 
be  quite  impossible  to  obtain  anything  like 
the  old  culling,  but  they  are  informed  that 
sales  have  been  effected  subject  to  a 
guarantee  that  the  culling  was  to  be 
"  equal  to  that  prevailing  towards  the  end 
of  last  season,  which  was  understood  to 


be  better  than  that  immediately  preceding 
it."  In  view  of  the  determined  and  some- 
what assertive  attitude  originally  taken, 
the  decision  comes  sunn-  what  as  a  surprise. 
Possibly  a  more  diplomatic  course  of  pro- 
cedure in  the  first  place  would  have 
saved  the  Federation  some  loss  of  dig- 
nity. "

OUR  SHINGLES 

FACTS  ARE  FACTS  WHETHER  TOLD  ABOUT  FISH  OR  SHINGLES 

We  make' a  fine  16-inch  Shingle. 

We  make  a  fine  18-inch  Shingle. 

We  make  a  fine  24-inch  Shingle. 
We  make  all  thicknesses  from  6-2  inch  to  6-38/s  inch. 

They  are  going  out  of  our  different  mills  at  the  rate  of  200,000,000 
a  year.    We  make  more  shingles  than  any  on«  firm  in  the  world. 
Just  think  of  it! 

We  claim  to  be  experts-  That  is  not  gall.  That  is  a  statement  which 
is  proven  constantly  by  the  testimony  of  our  customers  from  the  Pacific 
Coast  to  the  Atlantic  Coast  on  the  Canadian  side,  and  from  Maine  to 
Puget  Sound. 

Mixed  Cars  our  Specialty.  Don't  forget  that  we  have  all  kinds  of 
House  Finishing  Material  in  Fir  and  Cedar,  and  can  load  any  quantity 
with  shingles. 

Come,  let  us  deal  together. 
CUSTOMERS  ATTENTION.— Please  take  notice  that  on  and  after  the 
1st  day  of  January,  1902,  all  arrangements  w  ith  the  Pacific  Coast  Lumber  Co. 
of  New  Westminster,  B.  C,  for  the  handling  of  any  of  our  shingles  will  be

Twitchell,  Clinton,  Ont.,  for  Ontario,  and  Mr.  Samuel  Ashfield  of  Winnipeg,

Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  the  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know 
it  all."  We  recognize  that  "there  are  others"  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."  To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 
only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 
high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  flsh  and  a  bear  story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  kn  )w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  Our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day — giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  latest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  Orders  sent  to  us  by  letter  or 
telegraph  shall  have  our  best  attention. 

We  want  our   share   of   your   shingle   business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

Notwithstanding-  that  within  a  few 
weeks  there  will  be  a  general  resumption 
of  sawing  operations  in  Ontario,  the  lum- 
ber market  continues  decidedly  strong. 
As  far  as  can  be  learned,  prices  have  not 
receded  in  a  single  instance,  and  it  is  even 
predicted  that  current  quotations  will  rule 
after  the  mills  are  sawing,  owing  to  the 
large  quantity  of  the  season's  cut  that  has 
already  been  placed.  It  is  reported  that  as 
much  as  100,000,000  feet  of  Ontario  pine 
has  been  contracted  for  by  a  large  firm  of 
Michigan  dealers.  It  was  known  that  the 
firm  in  question  had  been  heavy  buyers, 
but  few  supposed  that  their  purchases 
would  reach  this  large  amount.  The  buy- 
ing ot  dry  stock  continues  to  the  extent 
that  suitable  lumber  can  be  found,  but  in 
some  grades  and  sizes,  such  as  12  inch 
boards,  the  market  is  almost  bare.  The 
best  grade  of  pine  lumber  has  not  yet  been 
advanced  in  Ontario  as  much  as  in  the 
Eastern  States,  where  uppers  are  bringing 
from  $65  to  $75. 

Opinion  is  becoming  more  general  that 
hardwood  lumber  will  witness  an  improve- 
ment during  the  year.  Consumers  are 
showing  a  disposition  to  purchase  in  ad- 
vance of  requirements  and  to  contract 
for  lumber  to   be    cut.      Some  dealers 


tell  of  a  slow  demand  for  oak,  b 
this  lumber  will  no  doubt  improve  in  t 
near  future,  as  favorable  reports  of 
come  from  the  United  States. 

The  outlook  in  Toronto  has  be 
darkened  by  labor  troubles.  It  w 
thought  a  fortnight  ago  that  strikes  wot 
be  prevented,  but  subsequent  events  ha 
changed  the  situation,  and  it  now  seei 
that  there  will  be  a  strike  of  painters  a 
carpenters,  with  the  possibility  of  t 
difficulties  extending  to  the  other  trade 
Consequently  some  persons  who  contei 
plated  building  have  decided  to  postpo 
their  work  for  another  year  or  until  t 
present  labor  troubles  are  disposed  of. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
The  spruce  situation  has  not  improvt 
during  the  past  week.  Shippers  ha 
been  successful  in  placing  only  a  sm; 
portion  of  their  prospective  shipments 
Great  Britain,  and  are,  therefore,  nl 
disposed  to  purchase  further  from  tnan 
facturers.  Although  freight  rates  al 
exceptionally  low,  chartering  is  inactiv 
and  it  is  understood  that  the  quantity 
deals  so  far  booked  to  go  forward 
comparatively  small.  The  uncertain 
regarding  the  log-  drives  is  the  01 
feature  which  tends  to  hold  the  mark 
firm.  Should  a  considerable  quantity 
logs  be  hung  up,  as  now  seems  probat 
owing  to  the  small  quantity  of  snow  in  tl 
woods,  there  would  doubtless  be  a  got 
demand  at  fair  prices  for  all  the  lumb 
manufactured.  It  is  estimated  that  tl 
"  state  of  Maine  did  not  produce  within 
per  cent,  of  the  usual  quantity  of  loj 
last  winter,  while  the  cut  in  New  Brur 
wick  and  Nova  Scotia  was  curtail 
slightly.  In  Quebec  operations  in  t 
woods  were  commenced  early  last  f 
and  a  full  stock  of  logs  has  been  secur 
by  most  of  the  operators.  Cedar  shingl 
continue  firm  on  the  basis  of  $3.30  I 
extras,  on  Boston  rate  of  freight.  The 
is  a  good  demand  for  spruce  lath.

th  19  for  the  same  period  last  year, 
ear  cedar  log's  are  now  selling  in  Van- 
uver  at  $10. 

V  fortnight  ago  the  British  Columbia  Lum- 
r  and  Shingle    Manufacturers'  Associa- 
' ;  n  announced  an  increase  in  the  price  cf 
•  /eral  grades   ot  lumber.    Rough  and 
I  mmon  fir,  formerly  quoted  at  $10  to 
7.50,  was  raised  $1  per  M,  and  is  now 
oted  at  $1 1  to  $18.50.    Dressed  fir  lum- 
(  r,  common  S.  I.  S.,  formerly  quoted  at 
I  1,  is  now  $12, and  shiplap,  formerly  $12, 
now  $12.    Cedar  boat  lumber,  double- 
essed,  2nd  quality,  up  to  20  feet,  was 
J  vanced  $5  to  $25  to  $30.    Shingles  were 
■  ;o  advanced  from  $1.25  and  $1.75  to 
.50  and  $2. 

UNITED  STATES. 
All  kinds  of  lumber  continue  to  show  an 
'  ward  tendency  in  the  United  States, 
'  d   although    prices     are  exceptionally 
1  *h,  it  has  not  resulted  in  a  perceptible 
I  ling  off  in  the  demand.      Dry  stocks 
•  e  badly  broken  at  manufacturing  and 
(  lolesale  centres,  but  the  probability  of 
(    early  sawing  season  will  soon  relieve 
]  ;  situation.    Following  the  recent  ad- 
^  nee  of  two  dollars  in  the  price  of  uppers 
j  d  selects  at  Bay  City  and  Saginaw,  we 
I  5  told  that  an  advance  in  the  price  of 
i  op  lumber  will  be  made  this  week.  This 
'  iss  of  lumber  is  exceedingly  scarce  and 
'  miries  are  being  received    by  dealers 
1  >m  large  manufacturing  concerns.  From 
!  licago  comes  the  report  that  sales  of 
:  ).  1  pine  stuff  have  been  made  at  $14.50 
early  delivery,  and  that  holders  are 
,  w  asking  $15.    This  is  the  highest  price 
which  pine   piece  stuff  has  ever  been 
d  in  that  market.      There  is  an  active 
mand   for    hardwoods  and  consumers 
jw  a  disposition  to  buy  for  the  future, 
lere  is  a  good  call  for  maple,  while  it  is 
nost  impossible  to  secure  1  %.   inch  oaki 
short  hemlock  is  quoted  in  Chicago  at 
m  $10.75  to  $1 1,  and  long  at  $12.50  to 
3,  with  the  demand  greater  than  the 
lis  can  supply.  White  cedar  is  stronger, 
a  meeting  of  the  price  list  committee  of 
:  Northwestern  Cedarmen's  Association 
d  at  Marinette,  Wis.,  on  March  24th,  it 
s  reported  that  the  cut  of  logs  had  been 
rtailed  fully  25  per  cent.      As  a  result  it 
s   decided    to    recommend  immediate 
vances  as  follows  :    One  cent  on  5  to 
nch  7-foot  posts  ;  ^    cent   on  3-inch 
inds  ;  2  cents  on  7-inch  ;  5  cents  on  8- 
;h  ;  3  and  5  cents  on  10-foot  lengths  ; 
cents  on   12,    14  and    16-foot  lengths, 
legraph  poles  were  raised  5  cents  and 
ing  one  cent.    Star  shingles  were  adr 
need  from  $2.20  to  $2.90,  and  standards 
m  $2. 10  to  $2.30. 

GREAT  BRITAIN. 
Recent  advices  from  Great  Britain  do 
it  tell  of  a  very  flourishing  condition  of 
;  lumber  trade.  The  heavy  losses  sus- 
ned  last  year  have  had  the  effect  of 
tking  dealers  extremely  cautious,  and 
;re  has  been  little  buying  beyond  the 
:ual  needs  of  their  business.  The  tight- 
ss  of  money  and  the  quietness  in  the 
ilding  trade  have  also  affected  the 
lume  of  business.  Prices  generally 
jw  no  improvement,  but  Canadian  tim- 
r  seems  disposed  to  break  away  from 
(  depression  governing  the  trade  at 
ge.  There  has  been  of  late  a  slight 
provement  in  white  pine.  Glasgow  has 
jght  Quebec  white  pine  deals  at  from 
enty  shillings  to  thirty  shillings  per 
ndard  more  than  last  season's  quota- 
ns.  There  is  no  difficulty  in  placing 
:  regular  sizes,  but  for  irregular  lots  a 
luction  in  price  must  be  made  in  order 


to  effect  a  sale.  Spruce  deals  are  steady. 
Such  dimensions  as  3  x  11  and  3x9  are 
exceedingly  scarce.  Spruce  battens  have 
sold  well  under  the  hammer,  a  parcel  of 
3x7  unassorted,  from  Saguenay,  Quebec, 
averaging  £7  12s  6d  per  standard, as  com- 
pared with  £7  2s  6d  one  week  previous. 


STOCKS  AND  PRICES. 

The  Merrill  &  Ring  Company,  of  Duluth, 
Minn.,  last  week  sold  14,000,000  feet  of 
No.  3  and  better  pine,  the  first  of  this 
year's  cut. 

The  cut  of  logs  in  the  district  cf  East 
Kootenay,  B.  C,  during  the  past  winter 
was  greater  than  for  many  years,  aggre- 
gating over  200,000  logs. 

Lumbermen  at  River  Hebert  and  Shulee, 
N.  S.,  lost  a  large  quantity  of  logs  and 
piling  through  the  breaking  of  dams  and 
booms  by  last  week's  freshet. 

The  corporation  of  Napanee,  Ont.,  is 
asking  for  tenders  up  to  April  21st  for 
supply  of  pine  sidewalk  plank  and  three 
inch  stringers,  the  latter  of  cedar. 

C.  Reid's  Sons,  of  Bothwell,  Ont.,  have 
purchased  the  tim'ier  ,011  a  550  acre  lot 
near  their  mills  at  Bothwell.  They  have 
three  years  in  which  to  move  the  timber. 

It  is  reported  that  the  Turner  Lumber 
Company,  of  Midland,  Ont.,  have  disposed 
of  their  season's  cut  of  pine  to  Skillings, 
Whitney  &  Barnes,  of  Ogdensburg,  N.  Y. 

W.  B.  Dickson,  who  represents  W.  M. 
Mackay,  of  St.  John,  in  Albert  county, 
N.  B.,  reports  that  the  cut  of  logs  this 
season  in  that  county  will  aggregate  about 
40,000,000  feet. 

The  Munro  Lumber  Company,  of  Pem- 
broke, Ont.,  have  100  cribs  of  timber 
ready  to  take  to  the  water  for  shipment 
to  Quebec.  The  timber  is  at  Seven 
League  Lake. 

The  tender  of  the  Rathbun  Company  has 
been  accepted  for  the  supply  of  lumber  to 
the  city  of  Kingston,  Ont.,  at  the  following 
prices  :  Two  and  three  inch  lumber,  $18.85 
per  M  feet  ;  1  and  i>£  feet,  $18.85  !  cedar 
sleepers,  2|^  cents  per  lineal  foot. 

James  Rae,  of  Ahmic  Harbor,  Ont., 
writes  that  on  account  of  the  early  break- 
up of  winter,  some  pine  and  hardwood  logs 
have  been  left  in  the  woods.  Tne 
hardwood  mills  in  that  vicinity  are  fairly 
well  stocked  with  logs  and  will  soon  be 
running  again. 

At  Buffalo  dealers  are  asking  $4.50  for 
best  grade  white  pine  shingles  and  $4.25  for 
red  cedar  Perfections,  and  some  dealers 
are  even  talking  about  asking  higher 
prices.  In  the  Saginaw  valley  white  pine 
are  quoted  at  $2.60  to  $3.90  and  cedar  at 
$2.00  to  $2.75. 

For  the  supply  of  54,000  lineal  feet  of 
hemlock  deals  to  the  city  of  St.  John, 
N.B.,  tenders  were  submitted  as  follows  : 
J.  M.  Driscoll,  $10.75  Per  M ;  George 
McKean,  $9.50  ;  John  E.  Moore  &  Com- 
pany, $9.00,  the  latter  being  accepted. 
F.  E.  Sayre  &  Company  offered  to  supply 
133  tons  of  hemlock  timber  at  $4.50  per 
ton,  and  90  tons  of  red  pine  at  $6.00  per 
ton.  Murray  &  Gregory  will  supply 
3,000  square  yards  of  spruce  blocks  at  50 
cents  per  yard. 

The  following  references  to  the  Barba- 
does  market  is  found  in  the  report  of  S.  P. 
Musson,  Son  &  Co.,  dated  March  15th  : 
"  The  only  landing  to  note  is  the  '  Neva  ,' 
from  Bear  River,  N.  S.,  with  58,000  feet 
second  quality  white  pine,  which  was  sold 
at  $15.60.  There  are  full  stocks  ot  both 
white  pine  and  spruce,  but  dealers  show 


a  willingness  to  buy  at  about  late  rates.  We 
had  the  "Onora"  from  Liverpool,  N.  S.,on 
9th  inst.,  but  dispatched  her  to  Demarara 
under  an  offer  of  $27.00  for  46,000  feet 
shipping,  $22.00  for  41,000  feet  second 
quality  while  pine,  and  $22.00  for  47,000 
feet  hemlock.  No  receipts  of  any  kind  of 
shingles  have  taken  place,  but  there  is 
little  inquiry. 

There  is  not  much  start  in  the  cooper- 
age trade,  says  the  American  Lumber- 
man, all  slack  shops  being  decidedly 
quiet  and  the  demand  for  light  work  not 
being  large.  There  is  a  scarcity  of 
tierce  staves  and  fewer  slack  hoops  than  of 
other  things  in  that  trade.  Flour  miBs  are 
running  much  slower  than  is  common  this 
spring,  as  the  export  demand  for  flour  is 
very  light.  Slack  quotations  by  jobbers 
at  Buffalo  are  as  follows  :  $7.75  to  $8  for 
first  class,  $4.24  to  $4.50  for  second  class  ; 
basswood  heading,  5^  to  5^  cents  for 
first  class,  2%  to  3%  cents  for  second 
class  ;  coiled  hoops,  $8.50  to  $8.75  for 
6-foot,  $8.00  to  $8.50  for  5  1-2  foot,  $5  for 
hickories.  In  tight  work  $29  for  tierce 
staves,  $19  for  heading,  $12.50  for  hoops, 
$22  for  pork  staves,  $16  for  heading, 
$10.50  for  hoops. 

A  report  of  the  hemlock  market  at 
North  Tonawanda,  N.  Y.,  says:  "The 
market  gives  promise  of  becoming  more 
remunerative  this  season  than  tor  some 
years  ;  the  demand  is  strong  and  prices 
are  advancing  in  both  Pennsylvania  and 
Michigan  stock.  The  new  price  list  that 
became  operative  several  weeks  ago  is 
stronger  than  some  dealers  expected  it 
would  be.  While  stock  is  decidedly  scarce 
with  most  dealers  it  is  not  expected  that 
the  situations  will  continue  embarrassing 
in  this  respect  much  longer.  Mills  in  the 
west  and  in  Pennsylvania  have  begun  to 
operate  with  all  the  vigor  possible  and 
stock  should  be  moving  more  freely  in  an- 
other month  at  the  latest.  The  base  price 
of  piece  stuff  is  $14.50.  A  local  dealer 
who  is  acquainted  with  the  situation  at  the 
mills  in  Michigan  states  that  $10  is  being 
secured  for  16  foot  boards  and  under, 
while  boards  18  feet  and  from  22  to  24  feet 
in  length  are  bringing  $11  and  $12.50 
respectively." 


SPRUCE  DEALS  IN  IRELAND. 

A  correspondent  of  the  Timber  News, 
Liverpool,  England,  thus  refers  to 
the  spruce  situation  and  the  opinion 
of  the  timber  trade  in  Ireland  : 

"Spruce  deals  continue  high  in  price — 
too  high,  it  is  thought,  to  last.  It  is  true, 
or  rather  alleged,  that  prices  of  materia 
and  labour  in  Canada  have  increased  ; 
even  so,  the  increase  in  cost  of  production 
does  not  warrant,  on  a  dull  and  declining 
35s.  freight,  an  £8.  5s.  c.i.f.  price,  or 
anything  near  it,  for  spruce  deals.  The 
feeling  in  the  timber  trade  in  Ireland  is 
that  prices  of  Canadian  goods  will  be  very 
much  cheaper  later  on,  when  the  quanti- 
ties of  all  kinds  in  view  for  shipment  during 
the  season  will  be  more  readily  available 
for  accurate  computation.  It  is  believed 
the  quantities  then  ascertainable  and  ready 
for  sale  and  shipment  will  be  much  larger 
than  what  can  now  be  only  roughly 
guessed  at,  and  as  a  consequence  lower 
prices  are  expected  to  mle.  This  has 
happened  before,  and  we  can  only  read 
the  future  by  the  past.  There  is  one 
thing  regrettably  uppermost  in  the  minds 
of  distracted  steamer  managers  and 
industrious  shipbrokers,  and  it  is  that 
freights  are  not  going  to  "boom"  for 


many  months  to  come,  if  for  years,  in  view 
of  the  total  collapse  and  smash  in  the 
freight  markets  of  the  world.  Timber 
importers  can  therefore  reasonably  calcu- 
late upon,  for  at  least  1902,  the  cheapest 
freight  market  experienced  since  probably 
the  dark  freight  days  of  1885  and  1886, 
leaving  thus  only  the  probable  f.o.b.  prices 
to  be  considered.  A  large  share  of  what 
is  said  of  the  increased  cost  of  production 
in  Canada  may  be  perfectly  true,  and,  we 
may  venture  to  hint,  some  of  it  may  be- 
otherwise." 


TRADE  OPENINGS. 

The  following  were  among  the  enquiries 
relating  to  Canadian  trade  received  at  the 
Canadian  Government  Office  in  London 
during  the  week  ending  14th  March,  1902. 
The  names  of  the  parties  may  be  obtained 
from  the  publishers  ot  this  journal. 

A  London  firm  of  wholesale  and  export 
cabinet  makers  ask  to  be  referred  to 
Canadian  shippers  of  chair  stock,  seats, 
backs,  legs,  &c. 

A  commission  agent  at  Newcastle  with 
good  connection  wishes  to  hear  from 
Canadian  manufacturers  desiring 
senlation  in  that  quarter. 

The  agency  for  a  Canadian  exporter  of 
wood  pulp  is  desired  by  a  Brussels  firm 
who  could  lake  up  the  representation  for 
Belgium  and  Holland.

CONDITIONS  AT  ALBANY. 

Owing  to  the  unusually  heavy  trade  the 
past  winter,  pine  stocks  are  rather  light 
and  if  business  holds  out  as  it  has  started, 
and  the  indications  are  that  it  will,  the 
market  will  be  pretty  well  gutted  before 
new  lumber  can  be  received  by  canal. 
The  New  York  Lumber  Trade  Journal 
says  that  spruce  stocks  are  even  in  a 
worse  condition  than  pine,  as  almost 
everything  saleable  in  that  line  was 
cleaned  out  before  navigation  closed  last 
fall.  The  spruce  dealers,  however,  are 
already  beginning  to  receive  stock  from 
their  mills  by  rail,  and  will  soon  have  on 
hand  a  complete  assortment,  and  are  at 
present  booking  orders  for  anything  in 
their  line.  Prices  on  both  pine  and  spruce 
are  stiff  and  high,  and  there  is  no  pro- 
bability of  their  weakening  any  before 
new  stock  arrives,  even  if  they  do  then.

bought  liberally. 


BAY  CITY  AND  SAGINAW. 

Navigation  is  due  to  open  any  day,  as 
the  ice  in  the  river  disappeared  some  time 
ago  and  very  little  is  reported  in  the  bay. 
There  will  not  be  many  million  feet  of 
lumber  to  ship  by  water,  but  the  receipts 
the  ensuing  season  are  estimated  at  125,- 
000,000  feet.  The  greater  portion  of  this 
will  come  from  Canada,  and  charters  have 
already  been  made  on  a  basis  of  $1.50  a 
thousand  feet.  DealeVs  will  want  this 
lumber  as  fast  as  it  can  be  obtained,  but 
much  of  it  is  already  in  tha  log.  Local 
stocks  have  been  somewhat  depleted  dur- 
ing the  winter,  the  volume  of  business 
having  kept  up  remarkably  well  for  this 
time  in  the  year.  Some  dealers  have  been 
getting  in  lumber  bought  in  the  Northern 
portion  of  the  State  and  elsewhere  by 
rail,  which  has  helped  out  in  replenishing. 


slocks.  L.  C.  Slade  has  purchased 
block  at  Gravling  and  at  Manistee  whic  | 
comes  in  by  rail,  and  200  carloads  froi 
Duluth,  which  will  keep  him  going  unl  J 
the  middle  of  the  summer.  Other  deale^ ! 
are  also  getting  in  stock.  The  Sagina' ' 
Lumber  &  Salt  Company,  which  has  r« 
moved  its  mill  to  Sandwich,  Ont.,  is  cleat 
ing  up  the  remainder  of  its  stock  cut  here 
and  sold  1,750,000  feet  the  present  wee 
to  local  dealers.  The  mill  of  the  firm  a 
Sandwich  will  be  started  in  April,  havini 
5,000,000  feet  of  logs  in  boom  and  a  bij 
raft  all  made  up  in  Georgian  Bay,  read 
for  the  tugs  to  hitch  to.  Three  or  fou 
river  mills  are  cutting  lumber,  and  other 
are  getting  ready  for  work.  The  lumbe 
market  continues  strong,  with  quotation 
running  from  $16  to  $25  for  white  pine  loj 
run  and  $13  to  $16  for  box.  In  the  yard 
business  is  good,  and  the  tendency  c 
prices  is  along  the  hardening  lines.  Car

HEMLOCK  SHINGLES. 

We  have  been  asked  to  give  the  speci- 
fications for  hemlock  shingles  such  as  are 
now  selling  in  the  New  York  market  at 
$3-'5  Per  thousand.      We  find  lhat  there 


are  no  rules  covering  the  inspection  of 
hemlock  shingles  applicable  to  the  New 
Vork  market.  The  shingle  in  question, 
however,  must  be  18  inches  long,  cut 
plump  5  to  2  inches,  and  he  rift  sawed. 
It  must  be  of  perfect  manufacture,  with  no 
feathered  ends,  and  free  from  knot  and 
rot  defects  or  evident  shake.  We  under, 
sland  that  very-few  hemlock  shingles  are 
used  111  the  New  Vork  market.

New  Mill  Erected  1901. 


Capacity  100  Million  a  Year. 


Spicer  Shingle  Mill  Co.,  Limited 

It  is  not  thi  purpose  of  this  advertisement  to  try  and  convince  the  Lum- 
ber Trade  of  Canada  that  we  are  the  only  company  in  British  Columbia 
manufacturing  and  shipping  shingles  in  large  quantities,  or  that  we  "  know- 
it  all."  We  recognize  th  it  "there  are  others  '  and  that  we  are  not  the 
only  "pebble  on  the  beach."    To  try  and  make  you  believe  that  we  are  the 

only  people  who  can  supply  you  promptly  and  in  large  quantities  with  a 

high-grade  shingle  would  not  only  be  a  fish  and  a  bear  Story  combined, 
but  it  would  be  gall  of  the  bitterest  kind. 

Our  competitors  ir  the  shingle  business  in  B.  C.  are  nice  people,  and  we 
presume  that  they  kn  >w  their  business  ;  but  we  are  nice  people  too,  and  as 
we  have  been  in  the  trade  as  long  as  any  of  them,  and  a  great  deal 
longer  than  the  most  of  them,  we  know  that  we  know  our  business,  and 
that  our  competitors  are  not  in  the  possession  of  any  points  of  value  regard- 
ing the  manufacture  of  shingles  which  has  not  come  to  our  knowledge. 

Our  old  mill  was  burned  down  in  May  last,  and  in  its  place  we  have  built 
what  is  at  the  present  time  the  Largest  Shingle  Mill  in  B.  C. 

Our  new  Mill  has  7  of.  the  latest  improved  type  of  Dunbar  machine, 
which  we  run  night  and  day— giving  us  a  capacity  of  about  100  Million 
a  year. 

Competent  judges  who  have  seen  our  new  mill,  tell  us  that  it  is  one  of 
the  most  Substantial,  carefully  constructed,  and  best  planned  mills  in 
this  province.  We  ourselves  think  it  is  the  Very  best  shingle  mill  in 
B.  C.  ;  and  we  know  that  it  is  equipped  with  all  the  very  lalest  improved 
Shingle  Machinery. 

Will  the  trade  please  note  that  our  contract  with  the  Pacific  Coast 
Lumber  Co.  closed  on  December  31,  1901.  Orders  sent  to  us  by  letter  or 
telegraph  shall  have  our  best  attention. 

We  want  our   share    ot   your   shingle    business,  and  can  guarantee 

you  satisfaction  in  every  particular.

CURRENT  TRADE  CONDITIONS. 

ONTARIO. 

There  are  no  evidences  that  the  white 
pine  market  will  weaken  when  the  mills 
commence  sawing.  On  the  other  hand, 
the  outlook  is  decidedly  promising',  as  the 
volume  of  trade  is  expanding  and  inquir- 
ies are  becoming  more  numerous.  There 
has  been  heavy  buying  of  dry  stock  as 
well  as  of  the  coming  season's  production. 
The  strength  of  the  market  is  clearly  in- 
dicated by  the  fact  that  contracts  have 
been  closed  for  the  new  cut  at  prices  about 
two  dollars  per  thousand  above  the  cur- 
rent quotations  for  dry  stock.  The  highest 
price  which  has  come  to  our  knowledge 
is  $17.25  for  log  run.  This  is  doubtless  an 
exceptionally  high  price,  and  one  which 
has  caused  the  trade  to  question  whether 
buyers  are  justified  in  paying  such  a  fig- 
ure. It  is  argued  that  as  many  of  the  mills 
will  not  commence  sawing  until  the  first 
of  June,  and  two  months  must  elapse  be- 
fore the  stock  is  in  shipping  condition, 
most  of  the  lumber  will  actually  be  mark- 
eted in  1903.  In  the  meantime  unforeseen 
circumstances  might  have  brought  about 
much  lower  values.  Nevertheless,  the 
outlook  is  for  higher  prices  for  white  pine 
in  the  immediate  future,  not  to  speak  of 
later  developments.    The  buyers  at  the 


top  prices  have  in  most  instances  been 
United  States  dealers 


Local  trade  is  quite  brisk,  as  are  also 
shipments  to  the  Eastern  Slates.  Th 
lath  market  is  somewhat  uncertain,  owing 
lo  the  high  prices  ruling.  Sales  of  No.  r 
are  being  made  in  Toronto  at  $3.50 
wholesale,  and  of  No.  2  at  $3.  Shingles 
are  steady.  For  16-inch  $2.60  at  the  mill 
is  asked,  and  the  wholesale  price  in 
Toronto  ranges  from  $3  to  $3.25.  Satis 
factory  reports  come  to  hand  of  hard- 
woods. Buffalo  dealers  have  recently 
purchased  a  large  quantity  of  birch,  the 
price  of  which  is  tending  upwards. 

QUEBEC  AND  NEW  BRUNSWICK. 
While  pruce  deals  for  the  British  mar- 
ket are  quiet,  t  r  ct  e  is-  a  considera  ble mo- 
ment of  lumber  to  the  Eastern  States. 
The  buying  of  clapboards  has  consumed 
almost  the  entire  stock,  and  sales  are  now 
being  made  as  high  as  $40  for  best  quality, 
Boston  delivery.  Square  and  waney  pine 
timber  is  exhibiting  unusual  strength. 
Sales  have  taken  place  at  the  equivalent  to 
58  cents  for  waney  pine,  delivered  at  Que- 
bec. This  is  an  advance  over  the  prices  rui- 
ng one  year  ago.  It  is  believed  that  prices 
of  square  and  waney  pine  will  gradually 
work  higher,  as  there  are  few  limits  on 
which  board  timber  can  now  be  taken  out 
economically  and  profitably.  Cedar 
shingles  are  higher,  some  manufacturers 
asking  $3.40  for  extras  on  Boston  freight 
rates.  Spruce  lath  are  also  firmer  at 
$3.20  for  \%  inch. 

UNITED  STATES. 

The  lumber  market  has  been  well 
sustained  noth  withstanding  the  near 
approach  of  the  sawing  season.  Shipments 
from  the  Lake  Superior  district  during  the 
month  of  March  were  slightly  less  than  for 
the  same  month  one  year  ago.  This  was 
due  to  broken  stocks  and  the  inability  of 
manufacturers  to  supply  the  wants  of  their 
customers.  The  demand  has  not  diminished, 
but  on  the  other  hand  dealers  and  con- 
sumers are  showing  a  disposition  to  close 
contracts  as  early  as  possible  and  thus  be 
assured  of  an  ample  stock.  Box  lumber 
in  both  pine  and  spruce  is  in  large  request. 
White  pine  which  could  be  purchased  one 
year  ago  at  $16.00  no  w  commands  $  18.00. 
The  opinion  seems  to  be  thai  there  u  ill  be  a 
scarcity  of  ihe  belter  grades  of  lumber  this 
year.  It  is  probable  that  low  grade  pine 
boards  and  dimension  may  weaken  a  little 
about  midsummer,  but  no  person  expects 
that  there  will  be  a  general  slump.  Spruce 
lumber  is  exhibiting  as  much  strength  as 
pine  and  an  advance  of  $2.00  per  thousand 
is
