Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta \VKONK*t>.\Y. M.\nr.if tmx THE M'.IMMIUIM�K VMl.f lir.!\MAf PA OF. THIHTKKN 1 Great Offensive Developing More Open Warfare Now SAYS TROTZKY HAS ItfUlnh firm j JI> �rti|uari�rst In (� vintii flung Into tJm southern l>ha*n fh* \Kn ofluiwlve" lsl� jrostorday. Thi>(n! rnliifni'iin of wood is no small itemv in the. economies of the district, and theVplriful-tiess of it is, that it could be all conserved, if tho fuel commissioner and the Coal Director were to set their hearts and their minds at it and make a strong pull in the right direction. , Most of the mills in the district are' so situated that with comparatively little cost the waste which fas now diverted to the waste burner could be directed to the. door of a freight car and loaded for.shipment to the prairie towns, to the oust where'U is so badly heeded iov summqr uso. as well pa Tor kindling in the winter months. , It must be remembered that' all this ,. -m*t�Jn��..g9n,e,4hj;ftU4b, itwutopst ox- ponBlvo pari, of lumber production. It has been, cut down in tho bush by the lumber-jack; hauled, or skidded to the skid-ways; railroaded or river driven to the "mill, and gone through all 'tho necessary handling that the part of the log which has been cut Into lumber has gone through before It reaches the vtvsf conveyor and Is taken to the burner. At one of those mills the writer had stood by. looking at two men stationed at the side of the waste convoyor, picking out the boat of the four-toot leugtliB of slabs that passed up to the burner, but not more than 10 pei cent, of the amount of refuse golu;; up the- chute was thus taken out and sent down a side chute to bins from which ft was, later, hauled away by liors-o niyl wagon. ( Instead of not moro than one-tenth Of this waato being saved, it should bV-flj'tlio! interne order; not more than 10 per cent, of It should find Its way to the waste heap. To consorve this useful product of the forest would need but tho expense of handling it after it reaches j the waste convoyor, and it Is an Indication of wastefulness that the presont methods are allowed to continue, whilo we hear on every hand the incessant call for conservation of all things which go to make up tho cost of living, or which would aid in solving tho great problems of how best to aid In winning the war. Thirty thousand cordB of wood would equal in fuel value ten thousand tons of coal, and if taken from the waste of timber and added to the supply .of fuel It would make a decided difference in the final balance of our expense accounts. A Big Waste. In speaking to another mill operator, it was learned that he had piled up in his yards a thousand cords of four-foot slabB, the pick of his waste conveyor, which he could not got sale for, and Ueihad discontinued tho saving of them because of want of ground room on which to pile them. If that mill wore equipped with the proper appliances .for conserving its waste, the product'could be disposed of as rapidly as it came from the mill and no piling ground would be required.' As the waste Is now handled, being piled out In a yard and later re-handled to get it into) cars, the coBt becomes too great and thus a largo quantity of excellent, fuel is allowed to go to waste for want of proper methods after the greater �rst to tho mill man' has been incurred in getting th� timber to anil through the mill. At another mill the writer-saw n large heap of waste burning on a high bank above the railway siding. The installation of the simple machinery required to cut this waste to proper stove lengths, and the construction of a chute-down the bank to tho sidetrack would enable the mill man to place his waste wood aboard tho oar at a price which would pormit-ut its being sent to tho prairie for the use ot the '.people who would be glad lo got it. ' ' With proper handling and with reasonable freight rates these thirty thousand cords oC wood could be distributed' to the tdwns along the railway ; from", the mountains to beyond Lethbrldge every year at a cost that would pay for all the expense and add much to the comfort of the people who would be glad to buy it, , i'd tio'ipn, iii'-ui'llnR the tumuli* i'rus-iilnn fiunrd". ww* h�nt ft,-ward Iti /t denan riKiHi hkMiimi tb>' allied dofend-ctn.
