THE WASHINGTON TIMES, FRIPAY, PECEiUBER 17, 1915. 9 UXPARKSANASSET JONATION.SAYSLANE Visitors Last Summer Spent Million That Europe, Normal ly, Would Have Gotten. Declarlnc that national parks nrean nsnet to the people, not only for hVaJtli nnd recreation, but from nn economic rtandpolnt, Secretary of the Interior Lane in a section of hln annual report made public today, calls attention to the fact that visitors to the parks ma), mimtner dlstrlbSted millions that under normal conditions vyould have cono to Europe. With respcctvto tho parks, h says. "The United States furnishes play- Krounas to me people or mis country which are, we may modestly state, with out any rivals in the Vvorld. Just as the cities are seelne the wisdom nnd the necessity of open spaces for the chil dren, so, with a very large view, the Nntlpn has been savin? from its domain the rarest places of Kiamleur nnd beauty for the 'enjoyment of the "world. Revelation Tq Many. "Ariel this fact has been discovered by many only tljls year. Having an in centive in the expositions on the Paci fic coast, and Europe being closed, thou sands havo for the first time crossed the -continent and seen one or moro 6f thft national parks. That such moun tains and glaciers, lakes and cantons, forests and waterfalls were to be found In this country was a revelation to many, who had heard rut liau not be lieved. "It would appear from the experience of this year tlint the real awakening ns to tho value of these, parks has at last been realized, and that those who have hitherto found themselves enticed by the beauty of the Alps and the Rhine and the soft loveliness of the valleys of Franci. mnv flrul rrtunl If nut mnrA stimulating satisfaction in tho moun tains, rivers ana valleys which this Uovcrnment has set apart for them and for all others. The Government's Aim. "There is no reason why this nation should not make Its public health and Bccnlc domain as available to all Its citizens as Switzerland and Italy innKo theirs. The aim is to open them Tnor oi'ghly by road and trail and give hc cess and accommodation to every uc gren of Income. "In this belief an effort lias been made this year as never before to out fit tho parks with new hotels which should make tho visitor desire to linger rather than hasten on his Journey, uno hotel was, -built on Lake McDermott, In Glacier Park, one is to be -built im mediately on the shoulder of ait. Rainier, in Faradiso valley, another in the valley of the Yosemlte. with an annex high overhead on Glacier .Point. hlle more modest chalets arc to Do dotted about in tho obscurer spots to make accessible the rarer beauties of the Inner Yosemlte. "For with the new Tioga road, which, through rue generosity of Stephen T. Slather and a few others, the Govern ment has adntilreri. thorn In to be re- venled a new Yosemlte. which only John llulr nnd others or similar bent .have seen This is a Yosemlte far dif ferent front the uuiet incotniffttabm Valley, It Is n lAnd of roreats, snow's, and glaciers. From Mt. Well on pojts, as from nil island, unon n tumbled sea of snowy peak's. Its lakes, many of, niiiun uuvo nevec occn nsneu. nrc nuvu with, trout. And through It foams tho Tuolumne river, which in 5 mile drops mile, a water spectacle destined to world celobrlty. "Moetlng obstructions in Its slanting rush, tho water now and. again le nearly perpendicularly, forming Up right foaming arcs sometimes flftv feet in height. These "water wheels' a dozen or mote id nmriber. will be ac cessible next summer by a trull to be built when tho snow molts in June. Game Conservation Center. "While as the .ars have passed we have been modestly developing the su peib scenic possibilities of the Yellow stone, naturo has nude of It tho larg est nnd most nonulous triune nreservn In the Western Heiulsphore. Us great size. Its altitude, its Vast wildernesses, Its plentiful waters'. Its favorable con formation of rugged mountain and shel tered valloy, and the nearly perfect protoetldn afforded by the policy and the scientific care of the Government have made this park, since Its Inaugu ration in 1ST2. tho natural mill inevita ble center of game conservation for tins nation. "There is something of significance in thin. It Is thn ilpstlnv of tho national parks, if wisely controlled, to become tit.. r.tlV.11 lalinrnfnrtajf of imtllrt HMlflV for the nation. And from them specl-t mens may do uisictuuiuu 10 uiduij mm State preserves, ns Is now bolng done with the" elk of the Yellowstone which aie too abundant, and may be later with the antelope."
