this report, showing the extent of con-
ent to the-. President and published
nearly two years ago.
To increase government ownership
of forest lands the commissioner urges
that the forests of Alaska be included
in reserve, as well as all timbered
lands recovered in forfeiture suits. He
advises a further searching inquiry
Into land grants of the past with the
view of instituting additional forfeit
ure suits if the facts justify the pro
cedure. issues a Warning.
Mr. Conant warns that attempts are
still being made to "serure the trans
fer of public timberlands to private
ment which 'in the past often prrtved
wholly specious and insincere.'
"Much of the timbr'.and still re
maining, in public ownership." contin
ues the commissioner, "is adapted only
for timbej" purposes. All that could
be procrjy asked by a bonaNde set
tlor is thteurface cf arable land after
the timber has been removed, hut ;oo
frequently back of the argument ra:ide
in the name of the 'settler' is the do
sire to acquire the timber or other
natural resources rather than the soil
itself. It tseems' desirable, therefore,
to direct public attention to the funda
mental difference between diposinc
of agricultural lands to aciua: settlers,
whose industry contributes directly to
the material and social upbuilding of
11, e community, and the alienation of
virgin timberlands. which do not re

practically negligible. When, more-
there is. instead of a public service, a
serious public danger.
Big Suits Filed. !
"Without entering into a discussion
of possible solutions of certain grave
problems involved in the present con
centration of timber ownership, it may
be pointed out that the government to
day still owns, exclusive of the forests
cf Alaska, about one-fifth of ihe coun
try's total supply of merchantable
standing timber. It is the agency best,
adapted to practicing reforestation on
a large scale. Recently important
suits of forfeiture of extensive timber
lands have been brought by the Gov
einment on the ground of non-fulfill-'
ment of conditions imnosec In the
gran 1 8 by which these lands were
alienated from the public domain. For
these reasons, it would appear, there
lore, that the government may later
be able to materially strengthen its
relative position as a timber owner.

After enormous sales, the commis
sioner points out that the Southern

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe own
together 33,500,000 acres of timbered
and nc-timbered lands, an area as.
large as England.

Conant adds, owns over l.ooo,'iK acres
of timberland and more than 100.000
acres of non-timbered iand, all in Mon
tana, and Thomas D. Walker person
aliy owns 760,ooo acres in California.
Foresees Higher Prices
Despite the great increase in
stumpage values in recent years.
Commissioner Conant foresees a grow
ing rise in prices because of the di
minished lumber supply and increas
ing population, lr. Conant takes
sharp issue with suggestions, amount
ing he says to almost a propaganda at
the present time, that the price of
stumpage should equal the cost of
growing trees. The idea, he adds,
seems incredible when it is consider
ed that standing timber is the free
gift of nature, requiring from scores
torhundreds of years for its growth.
The proposal, nroughr forth in the
name of conservation and seized upon
by some lumbermen, he continues, "is
a proposal deliberately to hasten the
evil which conservation ought to mod
erate the evil of excessive prices."
Taken in connection with the increas
ing concentration of timber control, he
says, the proposition is a matter of
grave concern to the consumer of

It is clear, concludes the report,
