powerful lntereita of an enormous per-
rentage ;cf thi Umberlancs .'of the
r United States has created a problem
so grare -for the nation In the Judg
ment of Luther Conant, Jr Commis-
; tioner. of Corporations, that today he
recommended to President Taft that
the existing national forests not only
be retained hj the federal government,
teiit Increased, a) far as practicable.
; i Ttia note of warning was sounded
by the commissioner in forwarding to
-:the President the full text of part 1
6f the bureau of corporation's Investi
gation of the lumber industry made by
' direction of Congress. A summary of
this report, showing the extent of con
centrated control of tlmberlands was
sent to the President end 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 inqufry
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 "secure the trans
fer of public tlmberlands to private
- owners under the same pleas of settle
ment which in the past often proved
wholly specious and insincere."
"Much of the timberland still re
maining in public ownership." contin
ues the commissioner, "is adapted only
for timber purposes. All that could
be properly asked by a bonaride set
tler is the surface of arable land after
the timber has been removed, but too
frequently back of the argument made
in the name of the 'settler' is the de
sire to acquire the timber or other
natural resources rather than the soil
itself. It seems desirable, therefore,
to direct public attention to the funda
mental difference between disiosin:
ers; companies in which the A. B;
Hammond Company of New Jersey, !?

interests of the Chicago, Milwaukee &
Puget Sound Railway Company (sub
sidiary to the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul Railway Company).

"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 thathe government to-
large as England.
The Amalgamated Copper Co., Mr.
Conant adds, owns over 1,000,000 acres
of timberland and more than -100,000

Maui is going to put haleakala's
famous Silver Sword plant in the

maxkable plant will form a principal

is the only place where it grows, it is
rare enough to make an unique decor-

I'Many years ago I saw it growing
on Mauna Kea," said Robert Horner,
"hence it was no surprise to me to '
see a sample of it' in the windows of
the Promotion Committee rooms.
' One of the wonderful- things about
the plant is the slowness of its
growth. There seems to be hardly any
Itrceptible increase in a year. On
Haleakala, years ago, I used to see
the little plants and visiting the place
again., years after, I could hardly see
tl-at they had grown at all.
