SAN BERNARDINO, April 9.—The pub
lication in Tkk Hrrald of the statement
that a bill is before congress which will
permit the forest reservations to be thrown
open has stirred up the people of this val
ley who are interested in the San Bernar
dino reservation, and this afternoon the
following petition, numerously Signed, was
telegraphed to the capitnl:
To Senators S. M. White and George C.
If the San Bernardino forest reservation
did contain land adapted to agriculture,
(and it does not), still considering the com
mon interests of the valley, which is wholly
dependent upon it for water for both irri
gation and domestic use, it should not be
diverted from its present purpose. Any
interference with it would be disastrous to
the future growth and reduce present cul
tivation. We aro not afraid of the pro
posed test if it can he made openly, and we
can be heard, but we deprecate any dis
turbance of tlie present status. Please see
that we are amply protected in pending
legislation relating to forest reserve.

people iv California, was in town, and

Carruthers, he knows enough of the circum

this latest development.

Philadelphia parties were originally con

of tho enterprise, which was then known
as tho Chicago Canaigre company.
Subsequently the English people who
were furnishing the money demanded that i
a new company be formed, which was done, I
it being known as the Anglo-American !
Canaiere company. This left Heasley out,
and Wilson says he is making trouble be
cause he lost certain comtuiss'ons, and is
irying to force Carruthers and-the syndi
cate to pay him these accounts. Mr. Wil
son snys the prosecution is wholly mali
cious and he is sure it will result iv
Tbe most notable entertainment ever at
