Not quite so geutle. ho wever, was
he in his notice of 1Mr. enrose's pro
nounced quest,ionin-g of the reality of
the Wisconsin senator's illness. which
had eaised an iijterruption of his
spe-ech and a regess to enable him to
recover and continue.
"As to the remarks of the senator
from Pennsylvania,'" he said, "I
would suggest that he would render a
very important service to the country
and to his State if he would account
for the way he spends his time when

Abides by Rules.
"I might add," continued the sen
ator from Wisconsin, "that no man
could undertake to account for the
-whereabouts of the senator from
Pennsylvania without transgressing
the rules of the senate, and I do not."
Mr. LaFallette resumed the thread
of his argument on the tariff. During
an interruption Mr. Daniel of Virgin
ia, presented a table prepared by the
experts of the Aldrich bill which are
equivalent to ad volorem rates above
75 per cent.
"When -u are asked to fix these
values at the customs house according
to the value of the goods in this coun
try, as you will be when the admin
istrative features of this bill are con

will turn over the fixing of these
rates from this body to the people
who are directly interested in the bus

the question of profits of New Eng

posed to say that although South Car

the number of its spindles, manufac

of cotton it raises, the mill owners

Railroad Presidents Called Upon to
Practice Forest Conservation .
And Better Wood Utilization.
Washington, June 7.-The presi
dents of the leading railroads of the
country have just received a letter
from Gifford Panchot, United States
forester, calling upon them to prac
tice forest conserva.tion and better
timber utilization. In -his letter the
"'I am writing to call your atten
tion again to some phases of a sub
ject to which I know you must al
ready have given much thought--the
conservation of our.forests. The re
port of the National Conservation
commission shows that w~e are cut
ting our forests three times faster
than they ar.e growing; that much
larg-e timber. and( young* growvth are
destroyed yearly by fire; that as a na
tion we have used wood wastefully
and extravagantly; that t'he only
way we cain get the timber we shall
need in the future is to keep all ouw
forest land constantly growing trees;
and that the longer we delay action
the greater will be the pinch of ~
timber shortage later on.
"One-fifth of our remaining tim
ber is in public forests, and on thes(
forests the nation and the States are
practicing forestry. Four-fifths o:

"Each railroad has its own especial
timber problems which must be work- t
ed out to meet the given eonditions.
At the same time t:here are certain I
ines of general policy which can be
profitably adopted by many roads.
"1. The use of chemically treated
ties wherever possible.
"2. The use of so-called inferior
woods. as, for example, black gum a
and loblolly pine, for ties, which will
:-duce the drain on white oak. and C
which is entirely practicable if the
ties are treated.
"3. The purchase and management
of land bearing mature timber which
can be used immediately, and of see- S
ond growth timber which will meet
the needs of the future. Such land. U
if properly managed will insure a per
petual supply of ties and lumbe-r at C
the cost of production.

nonagricultural land owned by the Y
company, which does not now contain
sufficient young growth to produce a -
"5. Cooperation with other roads
in the adoption of standard specifi
cations for ties and timber and for
the treatment of them. Cooperation g
with. timberland owners and the
States in fire prevention, and in
bringing about conditions which will C

"These are in substance the recom
mendations of the subcommittee on
forest supplies of the American rail- 0
way engineering and maintenanc, of
way association. The adoption of
these recomm;endations and the ap- n
pointment of technical men to carry t
them out will, it seems to me, be wise
action for any railroad. The influ- e
ence of their general adoption. would -
be far reaching and most beneficial.
"I should be very glad to discuss
the matter more in detail with you at
your convenience, or to be of use in
any other way.n
Responses which show much inter-b

Destruction of Telephone Poles By
Insects play a most important part
in timber destruction.. The injury
done is generally underestimated as
their depredations go on gradually,
but forcibly, attracting little observa- -
tion. When they bore into the tim-.
ber they open up air chambers and ti
channels which make it easy for rain- ti
water to seep in, and thus keep the P
wood in a moist condition. Fungous t(
spores floating through the air are q
enabled to germintate with greater s
rapidity and with increased effective- C]
ness and the decomposition of the 0
pole consequently is materially has- fi
Several years ago the forest service
cooperated with one of the large tel
ephone companies in Georgia and ~
Florida to experiment with various
preservatives in protecting the butts
of telephone poles from decay. These
preservatives were simply painted up
on the wood, and of course did not
sink in to any great depth. A recent e
examination made of this pol'e line
showed that wherever the preserva- b
