MANY HARDSHIPS ENDURED IN
Storms of Last Several Days Cause
Heavy Washouts to Roads and
Trails—Bits of News
[Special to The Herald]
REDLANDS, Aug. IS.— Reports from
the mountains are that the storms of
the past several days continue and
that they have caused bad washouts to
roads and trails and inconvenience to
campers. At Oak Glen a party in the
canyon had a narrow escape from be
ing swept away by a ten-foot wall of
water, carrying quantities of debris,
down the steep canyon. Warning was
given by a man in time for the crowd,
made up principally of women, to get
to the mouth of the canyon before the
worst of the: flood had reached them.
In Wilshire canyon, Jn that section,
the road is badly washed out and Su
pervisor Horton and a large- crew of
men will be engaged for a week be
fore it can be opened to traffic. In Mill
Creek canyon the road also is washed
out and is being repaired.
A report from Seven Oaks today said
that the lee.. Angeles University club
mountain hike party had decided to
abandon the balance of the trip and
return home, because of the storms
that made travel in the mountains
hard. The men endured many hard
ships in the climb to the top of Gray
back and descent via Dry Lake, ac
cording to the report, and the pack
horses could not make the trip.
A report has been received in finan
cial circles from Los Angeles that the j
Redlands & Yucaipa electric road has
been financed and that work will be
started on its construction In October
and the road finished next summer. Al

CANEA, Island of Crete, Aug. IS.— A
well directed shot fired by one of the
parties of bluejackets landed early to-*
day from the international squadron
anchored In Canea harbor, brought
down the flagstaff of the Canea fort
and with it the Greek flag thai has
threatened to bring about war be
tween Turkey and Greece.
A combined landing party, composed
of detachments from the ships of the
four powers, was sent ashore before
sunrise today and the task of removing
the Hellenic emblem was carried out
in a few minutes without any attempt
at interference on the part of the
Most of the bluejackets then re
turned to their ships, but small detach

four powers, were left behind In occu
pation Of the bastion of the fortress to
prevent an attempt on the part of the
Cretans to raise another flag,
Cretan gendarmes have been posted
throughout Canea to maintain order.
Cretans Are Passive
Four warships of the protecting
powers assembled tn Canea harbor yes
terday afternoon, their presence being
an outcome of the difficulty which had
arisen - between Greece and Turkey
since' the evacuation and an Indication
of the purpose of the powers to main
tain the status quo.
Yesterday the foreign consuls at
Canea notified the Cretan government
that the Greek flag would be hauled
down this morning, and they warned
the government that Irreparable conse
quences would follow any attack made
on the International landing party.
On receipt of this warning the Cre
tan authorities issued an appeal to the
people not to obstruct In any way the
action of the power*.
The action of this morning means
that the protecting powers have re
turned to the island and the situation
is again much as it was before July 27.

lie' promised the aid of the govern
ment In every meritorious enterprise
looking toward conservation.
John W. Noble, former secretary of
the interior, spoke on conservation of
forests and water rights. He said, In
"The statutes relating to and author
izing forests reserves and the reserve
of reservoir sites either In letter or
spirit, confined them to the .'lose limits
insisted upon by some-, but us.d broad
terms suitable to the nature of the
subject matter in hand. And the more
recent acts," he continued, "did not
contemplate the relinquishment of re
serves and living them back to private
settlement where they were needed or
useful for a sufficient water supply as
contemplated by either original selec
tion or segregation.
| No Ground for Criticism
"It thus appeals clearly that there is
in. substantial ground to criticise the
reservations as made, In view of the
letter of the* law and none at all In
view of the spirit of policy and the
well known and admitted facts relat
ing to the growth of timber, Its need
of suitable and sufficient surroundings
and that the soil kept in place and In
itself a reservoir to be gradually and
precipitately exhausted and ■ swept
away by winds and floods."
General Noble pointed out that there
had grown up a public opinion almost
universal In the nation that showed
not only an Intelligent, but a deter
mined purpose thai the country's na
tural resources, believed to he essen
tial to the nation's vitality and prog
ress, should be protected from private
and' particularly corporate greed and
monopoly and controlled for the public
welfare now and hereafter.
Whole Nation Aroused
The speaker showed the present
benefits and future prospect from for
est and water reservations. He dis
cussed the matter of protecting the
reservations from infringement an.l
their being gradually pared down by
the claims of Individuals and small
local communities who asserted that
the reservations were too large and
that covered areas, which might be
of use for grazing, should be turned
back to the public domain and bo sub
ject t.i settlement and private owner
Genera) Noble said thai the system
as now practiced and being enlarged
was national In its character; that It
was a matter relating to the public
welfare, ami necessarily single com
munities and Individual citizens, how
