Perpetual Timber Supply
Object of Government
A perpetual timber supply, result -
iiiK from systematic methods of cut-
ting is commonly, antl correctly, supposed to be tbe chief purpose of making forest reserves.
Another purpose, scarcely, if at all
inferior, is that of regulatm)* tbe runoff from tbe water-sheds of rivers, on
which, on account of the fact tbat
the land is unsuited for fanning,
through its beiiiK too poor in quality or too rocky, or being at too high
a level and so exposed to frosts,
trees  form  the  most  profitable  crop.
Forests maintained for this latter
purpose ure called 'protection forests'
I'nsi-'iiiiy the best example of such a
forest, and certainly the largest protection forest in the world, is the
. Rocky Mountains Forest Reserve in
A.lberta, which now bas un area of
-ti.silti square miles.
Fortunately the Dominion govern -
ment early recognized the value of
Mich protection forests, and by tbe
j creation of forest reserves in the west
the great rivers of the plains having
their source in these water-sheds were
saved from the disastrous Hoods, the
low water stages, and the tilling up
of the river-beds with eroded soil, so
characteristic of the rivers originating in the denuded water-sheds of
j the eastern   United States.
In this latter region many areas in
tne Appalachian mountains, which
i cover a large part of Pennsylvania,
I Virginia, the Carolines and other
i estates were very severely cut, and
| have been rei cntedly swept by tire, so
that the foreits bave been entirely
destroyed. When rain fulls on such
an area, the water runs ofl almost
' immediately; if on the other hand,
thc area were covered with forest, the-
I soil would be mom spongy and able
Uo retain water, and the water would
be hindered in running otl by the tree
roots and the debris on the ground.
Moreover, thc water, in its rftpid "'ni-
ofi, gradually takes with ii .ae soil,
and, where the soil covering the rocks
is thin, it is apt to be washc'i away
entirely. Hence there is loot any
possibility of growing a new forest
on the now bare rock, l'he soil car-
| ried away eventually found its way
tc the larger rivers ana huibors, and
did actual harm bj silting these up.
The increased irregularity of How i-
the streams— excessively full in the
spring and as scanty in midsummer—
greatly lessened tbe value of the water-power situated on them. Accordingly an agitation sprang up to take
steps to reafforest such areas as ubovc
referred to, and after some years the
Weeks Bill was finally passed in 1011
setting aside $1 l,0un,ouo for tne purpose of conserving the navigability of
navigable streams, by baying up und
ultimately   re-afforesting  the  denuded
lircas on Important water-sheds. Ait
present over me and a half million
acres in the Appalachians have been
purchased or approved for purchase.
The right of .he federal government
to expropriate such lands by purchase hinged on the power ol promoting navigation, given by the Constitution, in c. lain the Dominion government was also given the regulation of navigation by the Uritish
North Ainei 'a ,ct of 1867, and it
has In en suggested that,, in tho3C
[arts of easte, 11 Canada where waste
water-sheds Cleurlj exert a detrimental Influence 01 the navigability of
rivers,   the    U i       n     government
'should co-operate with the provincial
governments in there establishing and
conserving forest growth, Such a
water-shed is thai ol the Trent river
issued by the Commission of Conservation, us tie result of repeated lires
about   150,000     icres are practically
desert bind. Tl i Trent \alley canal
which passes through this region has already con the Dominion
government upwards ol $10,000,000,
and, as the above report points out,
the re establishment of a forest cover
on this denudeii water obed for the
conservation of water.supplies is one
of paramount importance to the canal. The reme.ly for the many evils
following deforestation as pointed out
in this report is the carrying out of a
policy of conservation under Dominion, provincial or municipal control.
The work of . imping out tuberculosis in cattle is .'bout to be mnde
national in charm' jr in the Dominion. By a recent federal order-in-
Council regulations have been authorized which will empower the department of agriculture to enter into an
agreement with cities for the definito !
object of eradicating bovine tubercul-
OSis from all dairy herds supplying
milk to cities. This has been under
contemplation with the minister ol
agriculture for two years, and Its
adoption will be the mesne of very
materially assisting the work so
thoroughly set about by tbe govcrn-
I ment in this province.

priests in Quebec did a like sort of

matter, and there was talk of tyranny and undue influence and protest,
and even lawsuit. The principle behind the clerical action was the same
in each case. The circumstances may

to mix political matters with his
greater message.—Montreal Gazette.

a great deal of valuable information
regarding the wastefulness of war. It
is one of the most encouraging signs
Of the times that business men are
now looking upon war from an economic standpoint,     Heretofore,   war
appealed to the passions, prejudices,
Mid patriotism of the people of the
world; lately, hauliers and business
men are putting war to the acid test
of economics and are finding out that
war is one of the most  wasteful   and
useless undertakings imaginable. -

Rimouski, the little town m the
St. Lawrence, wblcb has become a
familiar name in tbe last few duys,
is remembered by many thousands of
colonists as the first place at which
they came into actual touch with
their new country. On u clear day
both banks 'if the river bave beeu in
sight to the emigrants for some
l ours, but opposite Rimouski the
steamer comes to a stop for the tirst
time since  leaving  Europe,    A  quaint,
, little beam engine tug briugs off the
letters for the ship and takes off the
few  passengers  who may be destined
, lor that port of the country. The

opinion that the recruits obtained arc

legard fur the players who have left

enthusiastic about tl.e ipialifications
of f{. Hewitt. Tbis player, he de-
I.lies, has a ixood arm, fine speed,
and a useful curve, so that under skilful tuition he would develop into a
player uf brilliance. Mr. Wells did ns
a matter of fact write to Mr. Chus.
A. t'omiskey. president of tbe Chicago White Sox, advocating the merits
of Hewitt and HolicititiK the Kood offices of thc I'hicnpo president in his

Hewitt had accepted the Edmonton

hf received an offer from the Ben vers

To the Editor of the Mail-Herald:—
Sir—On hehalf uf the local ball
team I wish to thank you for your
fair report of the .Inly I game and
to publicly thank the Y.M.C.A. for
their courteous treatment extended to
us during our stay. The Review was
Inclined to he sarcastic in comment -
ing upon it but considering the source
we should worry. They printed the
posters with "boost amateur sport"
' in  big type at. the bottom!
For live of our men this was their
first game in four years. We have
but ten men from which to select
nine ami live so far apart it is almost Impossible to get, together. We
work just as hard as the Y but are
handicapped by  local conditions.
We hope to arrange for another
game later in the season which will
result in a change of our line up as
well as the score.

Thirteen persons were drowned Saturday in Lynn canal by the capsizing
of the gasoline launch Superb, which,
while bound from Skagway for Juneau, with 13 persons aboard, was
struck     hy a heavy     sodtherly gale.
Three men and a women were killed
when a dynamite     bomb,  said to be
the most powerful ever used in   New I
York, exploded with tremendous force
in an apartment tenanted by Industrial   Workers  of thc  World.   The up-
I er part of the     six-storey tenement i
house, in which the bomb was   being
made,   was   wrecked.    A  score of per-
Bons were seriously injured,  and the
most  of the      property    damage was'
done ina  Wide  radius from  the scene

Biiron Lucas, a representative of the
government, formally announced In
the House of     Lords that     Uptons
Limited hail been removed from the
list if contractors for the British
army. This step was taken ns a consequence of the recent scandal in
connection with the army canteen
contracts, for which several army
officers and civilian employees of Lip-
tons limited were convicted on charges of receiving  and  giving  bribes.
A sen8atl0tl has been created in
London society by the tragic outcome of a midnight river party arranged by Sir Denys Anson, the
young baronet who a month ago succeeded to the title on the death of
his uncle, Sir William Anson, a leading constitutional lawyer and member of parliament for Oxford University. Young Anson, on Thursday, engaged a river steamboat to take himself and a party of friends up the river from Westminster, which they left
at midnight. On the leturn journey
from Kew, about 3 o'clock on Friday
morning, the host jumped or fell ov-
irhoard, and was drowned. A man
lamed Mitchell, a member of the orchestra which was playing, jumped
after Anson and was also drowned.
Count Benckendorfl, son of the Russian Ambassador to London, went
overboard in a vain search for the
two men.
A family of four wis wiped out by
blows from an axe in their homes in
the German settlement of Blue island
i. suburb nf Chicago. The victims
wen' Jacob Neslesla, a German laborer, iged ">'_' years; his wife, their
daughter, iged *-■"> years, and the
litter's infant child. Whether the
butchery was the work of a maniac
or of a   person   seeking   revenge      was
not disclosed in the first cursory investigation, It was learned that the
young mother had been living away
from her husband for a year and efforts to find him were begun.

Now that the bodies of the murdered Archduke Francis Ferdinand and
his wife, the Tuchess of Hohenberg ,
repose beneath the castle chapel at
lirtsletten, a bitter controversy is
raging over the manner in which the
funeral was conducted. Moderate opinion inclines to the belief that the
court officials made the ceremonial
too painfully correct, while the
(fiends of the duchess are indignant
at the emphasis laid on her inferior
birth. According to reports publish- ;
ed in the leading Vienna papers, the
reception of the bodies at Poechlarn,
across the Danube, was attended by
scandalous proceedings. A violent
thunderstorm upset all the prearranged ceremony, and the coffins were
l.urriedly carried to the waiting room
of the station, where they were placed on the stonepaved floor, where they
remained for two hours or more.
The torrential rain drove everybody
into the waiting room and, says one
:.itiiunt. •' Ul the ordinary rules of
behavior seemed to have been forgotten, and the scene might be described as resembling the turmoil
and noise of a countrv fair."
