ITUE W TURIED ME1No IA7NDDEPARTMENT l R AD8 AT DUiN" IS BENE ;i;iL4 lO OFFICIALS. One of the most important confer ance, of forest service men that has ,'eei~ hb~4 tis seasoni Was the meeting at Ogden, Utah; last. week of the heads of, the offices of lanils of the several field districts and 'some officials from the ''ashitgton'office for the purpose of 4iscussing agricultural land classi ficLIton as it applies to' the segre ptlhtg 'of areas i the .national forests to be listed for entry under the forest honteatead act. p.me time ago con 9es made a special appropriation for this;, work' ahd" urged' the forest serv lpe. 4to rush the laJnd classification thro~tghout the districts this year. So Inil'y intrya4 ])rd lb.ni are involved in the wolk. -'th.thalconference was call4d for the purpose at arriving at soinm definite understanding aq to What the ter.nm "0alriolttural land" im plies when "9plied' to lands situated Within' natlonal forests and to attempt to irrive at a ei. 'general basli of work. R. H. Riitledge of this city, as sistint district forester in charge of the foffice of laids, attended in his offielal capacity and in talking of the meeting upon his return stated that the exchange of ideas had resulted in much benefit for all concerned. "How vel" said Mr. Rutledge, "it was fouid very difficult to arrive at a basis of work 'hat would be applicable to *ach district on account of the great variunce in the nature of the country, the timber growth and the soil in the various sections of the couitry. Climatic Contour. "Qne point that was discussed at some length," said he, "was climatic contour. It is generally recognized that` in every locality there is a line aboVt. whJch agriculture is not prac tical.. no 5atter how rich the soil or how- well crops may grow in lower iltitudes `through the same region. Above this line it was agreed that there should be no reservations. The determination of this dividing line will be ,eft in a great measure to the bu rea Of soils which will be assisted, if .ecessary, by the bureau of plant indtstry. Minimum Farm Unit. "We 'sarlppe i' considerably over l. atoor i n ng the least ar. age upon which a man can settle and build up a home. While the service has no power to fix the size of these iunts and while the agricultural lands will not be divided into units, there are 'many small acre tracts discovered in our examination in the heart of the forests and isolated from other agri celt'*ral lands that might appeal to settlers. and for which we receiv3 ap plications. ." We did not consider this from a monitary standpoint, but took the. view that a definite amount of land was necessary for a man to build and maintali a home and make a liv nlug. The law fixes the amount of land that can be taken in a forest homestead as 160 acres. If a settler s:elects a' smaller tract he does so by choice. What we wished to know was the smallest tract that should be re served. In this as in other things we foi.'d; the local conditions governed to a great extent and this question will be left largely to the bureau of soils." Local Field. Speaking of the classification in dis tr!it No. 1, Mr. Rutledge stated that ther would be from $10,000 to t12,000 available for the work, the exact amunt' not having been determined. It id planned, to cover this season about 40,000 acres in the Fortine re gion of the Blackfoot forest, about the same Acreage on the North fork of the Flathead river, 50,000 acres north of I, nners Ferry in the Pend d'Oreille, forest, 100,000 acres along the south ' k of the Flathead river in the Flat head forest and 40,000 acres in the vicinity of Seeley lake. "In all of this area it is -believed that not mere-than 20 per cent of the lasnd will be found to come within the agriciltural classiicfation," said ,Mr. Rutledge. "A large portion of it lies at a comparatively high altitude, where there is a heavy snowfall and where. agricultural possibilities are linited to hay and grain and the more hardy vegetables. Many of the tracts contain excellent soil antd generally speaking the `water supply, both for irrigation and domestic purposes, 's tycellent. A large part of all of this land now contains heavy stands of timber which must be cut off before the- tracts are open to settlement. 'ra.tt.wlly all of the agricultural res ervationis will be accesible by railroad cr wagon road, the possible exception being on the south fork of the Flat head river, where only trails have been built. "The forest homesteads will not be opened like the lands of Indian reser v-.tionr. The. public seems to have a ,.

GOVERNOR AND E)XAMINING BOARD COME TO INSECT THE UNIVERSITY GOVERNOR S. V. STEWART. Governor Stewart, Attorney General Kelly and Secretary of State Alderson, comprising the state hoard of ex aminers, arrived in Missoula last night from the Capital city. Their special mission here at this time is to make an inspection of the university and examine into the proposed expendi ture of considerable money in the number of improvements at the Uni x rsity o" " mtana. One of the things w' ch it LI proposed :o do right away is the building of . addition to the science hall, mention of which has al ready been made i, The Missoulian. The board will at ilk over other improvements to emplated with President Craighet and members of the faculty. Duties of. 1oard. "Unm r tlh l*w the stet*' board.of examiners is called upon to approve the expenditure of nmoneys of the state just as a board of commissioners ap proved the expenditures of county money," said Governor Stewart, whenf talking about the board's visit to a Missoulian reportse "We come here, then, to perform our duty in regard to the proposed expenditures of money by the university. We know of these plans In a general way, but want to become thoroughly familiar with t)hem. We each feel the need of a more inti mate acquaintance with the state's university and its work, and will take advantage of the opportunity afforded by this visit to inquire into everything in connection with the institution that we should know. The board is ear nestly interested in the university and believes in its future, and we are anxious to help promote its welfare to the fullest extent. "With the exception of a brief visit to the state institutions at Boulder on Saturday, the university is the first of the state educational institutions that we have visited. The proposed ex penditures here do not amount to a great deal at this time, and I know' that the plans are well in hand by President Craighead, and our approval will probably be but a matter of form. That will leave us more time for a more general inspection of the uni wrong impression concerning this tact. To secure a forest homestead iit is necessary to make applicati,,n to the district office in Missoula. If there is timber on the tract apllio'd for the first applicant will have the preference right when the timber is removed. The law requires three :,ears' residence and cultivation, and there is no provision for commutation. The forest service advises each appli cant to make a personal inspection of the tract he expects to apply for and not take the word of others as to its fitness. We intend to insist upon this as far as we can ibecause it will save ,many from being disappointed. Soil Expert Coming. "On account of the number of im portant questions involved the work will be slow at first, but we will push it as fast as practicable. The soil ex pert who is to come to this district to assist in the work is now engaged in California, but he expects to reach Missoula by the middle of .May-by the time we have things well organ ized for the field. Professor Marbot, head of the division of soil surveys of :h', bureau of soils, will visit eaCh dis trict and after an extensive personal inspection will assist in formulating the principles upon which the ag' icul tural classification is to be based." versity, and this I am anticipating with considerable pleasure." There is one department of the uni versity with which the governor is very familiar. This is the summer school as announced for this year. He talked of this with enthusiasm, and stated that be felt sure it was going to be a big success. 'There is interest aroused in the summer school all over the state," said he. "Everywhere I have been I have heard the plans dis cussed, and from many other quarters has come word of the favorable im pression created by the announce mtent. I look to see the attendance even better than has been expected and I know that the school is prepared to render excellent service to those who attend." Concerning conditions throughout the state in general, Governor Stewart stated that he believed they were never more prosperous or encouraging. "The outlook is extremely bright everywhere," said he. "Montana is going to get an unusualt number of new people this season, and while T helieve that northern and eastern parts of the state will receive the greatest number of honmesekers, at least during the early part of the sea son. western Montana will get her share. Figures have been received at the executive office ,which seem to support Imy hopes for a wonderful in flux of new people. Since January 1 this year official reports show 27,000 work horses and domestic cattle have been shipped into the state by home builders. This is more than came to the state during the whole of 1912. The records at St. Paul show that over 300 carloads of household goods have been shipped to Montana points al ready this year. A few days ago 1 received a letter from the president of the Great Northern railway, who said that I, as governor, might he inter ested to know that 195 honwseekers with tickets to 1Montarta points were passengers on a single Great North. tern train the dlay ,before the letter was written. 'There are many other things which tend to show that Montana is filling up with people at a wondetrful rate."
