The Matter of I4terest to Washington -Protection of the Sources of the Potomac.. "All the water east of the Mississippi river come- from the ALppalachian range or the Adirondacks," said Prof. Charles Dar win of the geological survey, to a repre sentative of The Star "These great water sheds are the sources of Innumerable small streams which go to make up the great streams in this territory. The government has already made proper provisions for the protection of the water sheds of the Adi rondacks by the creation. of park reserves, and there is a bill in Congress looking somewhat to the protection of the water sheds of the Appalachian range, but it does not cover all the territory involved. as it applies only to what is knoWn as the southern system of sheds only. Function of the Forests. "These sheds are protected by the nat ural forests. The impassable jungles at the summits of the mountains keep the ground shaded and moist, so that the water does not run off at once, but seeps through the earth, feeding the springs and keeping up a continual supply. In heavy rainq the water does not run off at once, but es capes slowly, so that there are not as dan- . gerous freshets and the streams do not ) run dry in case of drouth. It is obvious . that the only way to protect these sheds is to prevent the destruction of the timber. The roots of the trees and shrubs keep the soil from washing away and preserve the springs thereby. Remove the trees in the usual way and this follows: First, the hemlock is cut for tanbark and the spruce for pulp from which cheaper paper is made, the brush is beaten down and ex posed to-the sun and soon catches fire from the engines in the saw mills and the land is laiu bare; next the heavy rains wash down the soil from the rocks, leaving ( barren wastes where no vegetation can again find root. Following this the lower Y streams become surcharged with water when heavy rains fall, because there is nothing to hold the water back. Bridges are torn away, dams broken and damage done generally. It is almost impossible to check or curb some of these streams in any ) way. Great quan4ts of sand and earth are carried downA deposited in the river beds or along t ks, widening the chan nel. Then co e drouth and there is no supply of to feed tne streams. The wide expari s sand exposed to the sun, covered are with pools of water, become rs of malaria and fevers. Cattle from thirst, farm lands become dry crops perish. The little water there is'Stands in pools, unfit for cattle to drink. Thus two evils result, uncontrollable torrents and destructive drouths. Recommended by the President. "President Roosevelt strongly recom mended the protection of the southern range of water sheds in a letter trans.nit ting a report of the Secretary of Agricul ture last winter. He considered it an economic need of prime importance to the welfare of the st th, iand hence to that of the nation as a 'w9o . The soil, once de nuded of its forests and swept by torrential rains, rapidly lose.% fist its humus, then its rich upper stratum,- and finally is wash ad in enormous volume Into the streams, to bury such of the fertile lowlands as are Pot eroded by the floods, to obstruct the rivers 0 and to fill up the- harbors on the coast. V More good soil Is now washed from these cleared mountain-side fields during a single 0 heavy rain than during centuries under mountain cover. Along the 'tireams are agricultural, water power and navigation interests whose preservation is absolutely essential to the well-being of the nation. These were the views of the President and they will be coincided in by every one familiar with the- conditions existing in A these mountain ranges. I do not know of V any opposition to a proposition to protect these water sheds, and do not know why there should be any. The President at the same time Indorsed the statement that the floods in these mountain-born streaans, if he forest destruction continues, will in crease in violence and frequency and in 'h'e extent of their damages. The extent of these damages, like those of the washing of the mountain fields and roads, cannot l1: estimated with perfect accuracy, he says, V Ibut during the year the total easily approx imated $10,000.000Ot, a sum sufficient to pur chase the entire area recommended for the proposed reserve. The American Forestry Association, in session here this week, has approved of the Appalachian reserve in a resolution adopted by that body.. Protecting the Potomac's Sources. "These matters are of local interest in one way--they show that there is a general . recognition of the necessity of such reserves and they show that the water sheds upon which Washington depends for its water supply are not protected by any reserve or proposed reserve. I have a residence near Fairfagf stone-the stone erected by Presi pdent Washington to mark the grant of land made to Lord Fairfax. It Is on the highest stream of .the many which feed the Poto mac. Within a storse's throw of my house Is Rhine creek, t'he highest source of the Ohio river. A small ridge separates the head waters of these two great streams. That country is not under any law protect' ing these -head waters, and the land is rap idly being denuded of Its timber. When 1 went home to vote I talked with Mr. Dag gett, who is interested in the postal-card contract, and he told me his company -had placed one of its factories next to a pulp mill in this country and -was turning out a million -and a 'half of postal cards a day. The sawdust and debris from the mills and the refuse of the pulp fill the streams and help to impair the water supply upon which Washington depends. But more particular - ly the sudden rises in the Potomac in recent years are due to the destruction of these) water sheds, and for the same reason in summer we have sluggish or stagnant pools, the streams alxnwat~ dry In place of a vig orous current, which would to some extent keep the waer _'e There is undoubtedly more mud in th ter, and that is caused by the washing::hway1 of these mountain tops where the catkth *as once held In place by the roots of shrubtand trees. The cut ting of this timber' iS'. of course, a legiti mate business cfterpise, and in all cases private property1lnter*dsts must be satisfied in the creation offa re~rve. "I1 am rtot epeu~ng *om the stan ipoint of comilali. All gwatar sheds should un doubtedly be prutectfa, and I do not see why the importanft-wa4ter-sheds of the Po tomnac and Ohio-should not receive consid- ) eration. This govrnhiUnt has made severalV reports, on the gillhion of the Potomac, -. which has brought Cut! many of these facts in detaili, and while: the su~bject Is not en tirely new, It isrespecially interesting to it Washin~gton." - -'; . ga - J.
