THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1913.
On May 9, in the Wailuku Town
Hall, the Wailuku Public School
will give nn entertainment which
promises, to be one of the best ever
eeeh on Maui. The program will
consist of drills, recitations, crown
ing the Queen of May, May-Pole
ft dance, choruses, a farce by the
teachers and older pupils, and many
other interesting features.
Children are being rehearsed for
their parts in the entertainment,
and they are already showing
evidence of the corcful tuition Mint
is being given them.
The May Pole will be a most in
teresting feature, nnd the tiny tots
who nro to tako part in it are work
ing hard to get the difficult dance
around tho pole "and through the
colored ribbons, down to a state of
perfection. Tho farco is said to be
a very funny one, as there are quite
a number of good amateur actors nt
the Wailuku School, tho affair
should be most successful . The
full program will be published later.
Don't forget the date May 9.
The Forest Service has just begun
to advertise tho twelfth large lot of
National Forest timber offered for
sale within tho past nine months.
Altogether it has advertised since
July 1, 1911, the beginning of the
present fiscal year, about 2,500,
000,000 feet, and has ctoscd con
tracts for tho sale of 1,700,000,000
feet. The latest advertised sale is
of approximately 52,000,000 feet of
saw timber in tho Rainier National
Forest, about 35 miles from Tacoma.
In offering National Forest timber
for sale the Government first makes
an estimate of the quantity of tim
ber on an area which would natur
ally form a single logging unit, and
which offers attractive opportunities
for the lumberman. The probable
cost of logging and manufacturing
by a cnpable lumberman is then
estimated. On the basis of these
estimates combined with tho figures
for market values and freight

charges the timber is appraised nnd
then advertised fur sale, with the
appraised value as a minimum price.
The minimum prices set for the
Iluinier timber vary from 50 cents
to 1.50 per thousand feet, accord
ing to the kind of timber. These
are stumpage prices that is, the
purchaser buys the trees on the
stump and does all the logging, but
pays according to the board foot
measure of the logs. The Govern
ment aims to allow the manufac
turer a liberal profit on the basis
that lumbering involves a good deal
of businessjisk, and the minimum
stumpage prices are fixed accord
ingly. Often, however, competi
tive bids raise the price above the
One of tho provisions of the con
tract which the successful bidder
fi? tho Rainier timber will enter
into will bo that if market prices
advauce materially theGovernmcnt's
Chief Forester may, after the sale
lias run three years,' require a reason
able readjustment of the stumpage
prices up to an added 50 cents per
thousand. Tho object of this sti
pulation is to prevent loss to the
Government that is, to the public
and an undue profit to the pur
chaser thiough long-term contracts
entered into on a rising market.
Provision against such speculative
profits is regarded a especially
necessary in view of tho long-term
sales now sometimes made to get
purchases for large bodies of in
For the Rainier sale the cutting
period allowed is only five years,
since tho quantity of timber invol
ved approximately 52,000,000
board feet docs not call for an ex
tended operation. One National
Forest sale made this year was for
800,000,000 board feet and the
purchasers were allowed a- cutting
period of twenty-two years besides a
preliminary two years in which to
build a railroad. Usually purchasers
must begin ..operating the year of
purchase and cut a stipulated
amount each year.
Tho latter provision is simply an
example of a fundamental principle
that is applied in all National For
est timber sales. The primary
object is described as being not pro
fit for the Government but benefit
to the public. Nowhere is the
policy a strictly commercial one.
The conditions of cutting are care
fully prescribed from the standpoint
of present as well as future needs
The highest bid for the contract
may be rejected, and is rejected if
it appears that to give the bidder
the contract would tend to facilitate
timber monopoly and so subject the
consumer to a hardship. In other
words, the Government foresters
consider that they should not only
make the forests grow as fast as
possible but also make them as use
ful as possible to the public.
