Tehachapi Milling & Trading

Moore & Smith - Tehachapi Milling and Trading Company.

Hiram E. Smith of Sanger, California and J. A. Moore were in the lumber business in Randsburg in 1896 with little competition if any. It is not known how long the partnership lasted. However by 1899 Mr. Smith no longer appeared to be with the company. Mr. Moore then owned two lumberyards in Randsburg, having purchased the Randsburg Lumber Yard in the latter part of 1898, and again monopolized the local lumber business. Los Angeles Daily Times, December 30, 1896: "Randsburg also has a dentist; Dr. L. Sweir from Los Angeles has his sign out at the upper end of Butte Avenue, occupying the same office with his father, who represents the Tehachapi Mining and Trading Company."
