SEATTLE, Wash., March 21,— Airplanes soon will be circling over the Olympic Peninsula, vast stretch of wild timbered country in the fa:1 northwestern corner of Washington, in an effort to determine accurately the damage wrought by a tornado, which on January 29 caused what officials say was the greatest tim ber disaster in the history of the country. ti f billion feet of lumber was splintered or crashed to the ground by the storm, according to estimates made by state officials, government foresters and lumbermen who vis ited the Olympic country with Gov ernor L. F. Hart after the storm. The financial loss, they say, may be estimated at between $100,000,000 tid $150,000,000. State Land Com missioner Carl Savidge, a member if the Governor's party estimated that 2ti per cent of the trees on state holdings had fallen. Timber remaining on the penin sula constitutes the greatest fire tmee in the I'nlted States today, Mr. Savidge declared in a report. One cigarette stub, he said, might be enough to start a tire that would sweep the area. If fires comes,” be said, "the damage that has already been done will be puny and insig-; uificant beside that which will result.” Plans for salvaging the fallen, timber and that left standing await the result of the airplane survey| before completion. The Federal Government has been asked to pro vide a means of entry into the dis-| triit and state officials expect thatj some use will be made of the rail-! road by the United States Spruce j Corporation during the war, run-, nlng from Port Angeles on the edge of the etorm area, into the interior <• i k • A FAMED SURVIVOR OF GREELY POLAR EXPEDITION SICK Maurice Connell, Soldier, Explorer, Scientist Re tired by Government. SAN JOSE, Cal., March 21.—Mau rice Conn'cif, one of I he seven al most dead, emaciated men Commond er Winfield Scott Schley found, when he went to the- relief of I.icut. A. W. Greeley’s Arctic expedition in 1SS3. retired here recently after serving the Government 51 years as soldier, explorer and scientist. Feeble health, a result of nis ex periences in the frozen north, nee csitated Mr. Connell s retirement, it was said. Since 1903. as an official of the Department of Agriculture, he has been weather observer here. Besides Connell, there are alive today only two men who lived through the grim story of the Greeley expedition, which has been described as one of the greatest tragedies of the Arctic. One of the survivors is Greeley himself, now a Major General| who recently wrote Mr. Con nell from Washington, D. C.. ex pressing his distress at learning ot' the other’s illness. There wedh 34 men in the Gree ley party, which set out in 18S1 to establish an international polar* sta tion, according to Mr. Connell. The expedition was the first and last ever undertaken directly by the United States Government. The party reached what was then the farthest North. 83 degrees, "4 ; minutes, discovered new land north ! of Greenland, and crossed Grinnell Land to the great Polar Sea. Then ! came the tragedy. The expedition | failed to meet the relief ship Pro i teus, which had been crushed in the ice, and was forced to take refuge near bleak Cape Sabine, where twen ! ty seven perished of starvation and i cold. When Commander Schley ! found the survivors they had been forty two hours without food. Connell, unconscious when found, i was for the moment in the worst ! condition of all. The rescuers at first thought him dead. For three days he lay unconscious, and when revived aboard the relief ship, he believed himself in another world "When I was weighed, three weeks after the rescue I weigher 102 pounds—my normal weight was at that time about 175 pounds,” Mr Connel said recently in telling of his experiences. Before going North. Connell served in the army in the West. He foughl Apaches in Texas and Arizona. Sioiu in Nebraska, served under Genera! Cook, a famous Indian fighter and was one of the few survivors of the Battle of Little Big Horn, in whi t Gen. Custer lost his life. TEXAS OIL FIELDS STILL VERY LIVELY "Down in the oil fields of Texas ■ where I spent most of my recent va I cation there are so many newlj made oil millionaires it makes ont ! feel greasy to talk to them,” is the way John II. Cobb expressed himsell today as to his impressions on hit : recent trip. Mr. Cobb said he made no obser \ vations in other parts of the coun try but that the Texas oil fieldt were lively and none of the depres sion that might have struck the rest of the country has affected them there. Mr. Cobb was on a vacation accompanied by Mrs. Cobb and de voted all of the time in looking overthe country and taking a rest. Mr. and Mrs. Cobb and their son E. Lang Cobb returned here on the Princess Mary yesterday morning. of the peninsula. Present plans con template giving Governor Louis F. Hart wide latitude in directing the work of fire prevention and open ing up roads and trails. Proposals i for burning over the entire area in ■ the early spring while brush and foliage are wet thus removing the ; menace of dying undergrowth have been discussed. No lives were lost in the storm, I although a number of the settlers j had almost miraculous escapes. Many barns and dwellings were de ; -.troyed and between twenty and : thirty families rendered homeless. Horses and cattle were killed. A power plant at Forks, in the center of the storm area, was razed, and ix houses in the Indian village of La Push, near the Pacific Ocean, were blown away. Settlers have taken a measure of comfort from the statement that any twp of the giant trees uprooted would more than furnish lumber to replace every building damaged by the wind. Of 150 miles of rangers' trail and 150 miles of telephone line, not a trace remains. The Olympic Highway, a scenic route, was block ed for miles by uprooted trees, fiords and trails were obliterated by trees piled many feet high in the most open places. Reports reaching State Game Commissioner I,. H. Darwin indicat ed that the destruction of elk, thousands of which roamed the pen insula, protected by law, was not as great as was first reported. Hun dreds of them were imprisoned by faillen trees blocking their trails, however, Mr. Darwin said, and un less a way is found to release them, they maj starve to death, , For Early Planting Why not have arr early garden, plant your seeds low, in the basement, in boxes.
