Alton Evening Telegraph (Newspaper) - August 6, 1929, Alton, Illinois Today Longview and Lumber. ^Tacoma and Power, slaughtering Forests. Considerable Bolshevism. -By Arthur Brisbane~ <0. 1»M. br Kins r*»tur«* Bro-. Inc ) LONGVIEW, Wash., Aug. 6— years ago, when he was 72 years Ola, R A. Long of Kansas City decided that this Pacific coast needed another city. He built It here at the mouth or the Columbia River, where ships come to take his lumber aU over the world. There are 15,000 people here, a monthly payroll of $600,000, twenty-eight Industries. In addition to lumber. The two biggest lumber mills In the world are here. Mr. Long’s mill turns out 2,000,000 board feet of lumber a day. the Weyerhaeuser mill 1,500,000. When you drive along this Pacific coast 1,000 miles or so, be sure to stop here. You will find a modern city beautifully planned, streets wide, people cheerful, most of them young. To enjoy themselves they put on lumberjack costumes, overalls, boots, bright red hats, worn by men in the woods, and sing. Three young ladies . from Seattle provide the accompaniment. One. \ery thin, plays the violin and shakes from head to foot. One. not so thin, plays the violoncello. One, between the tw#, plays the piano, and in the Levelling that instrument knows it jus done a day’s work. No namby-pamby music out here. Magnificent state, magnificent for eats. and the forests are vanishing. In Chicago's slaughterhouses they do not let you see the killing of sneep and lambs. Too sad when the poor crea tures’ throats are cut. They do let you see the slaughtering of these magnificent forests. There Is a crash. A fir tree fourteen feet in diameter, 200 feet high, fails to the ground. ■ Such a tree.’’ said Governor Hart ley of Washington this morning, ‘‘Is 1400 years old. It cannot be replaced. Civilisation and commercial timber cannot live side by side." Let us hope that this wasteful hu man race, slaughtering everything, including itself, will develop a civl lunation able to protect the forests, that are most beautiful of all things on earth. We are only 12.000 years from the stone age and we have, science tells us. much more than IOO. COO,OOO years of life ahead oi us Time enough to let the trees grow again. In the magnificent capitol at Olympia. finest in the country, Governor Hartley, himself a ’logger'’ all hts life. said today: • We are cutting three trees where we should ba cutting one. Twenty years will see the end of this great industry in so far as stands of virgin Umber are concerned. Competi lion, unwise legislation and taxation are to blame."
