SHORTAGE IN SUPPLY

SPECIAL DISPATCH. TO THE CALL
1 WASHINGTON, July 25.^-The rail
roads of j the country: are face .to face
.with the problem of lumber supply for
crosstles. ' : They-? can no longer -, have
choice of the best, but must take what
is' to be had: ." It is "not , so much a ques
tion \of as\of j absolute shortage
In' the; test ;\u25a0 grades.' " . , ,' f , .
' In : 1906 - the railroads of : the country
purchased 103,000,000 ; ties. Since ; each
tie « contains," on * the \u25a0 average, •30 board
feet, or "enough to make- a plank" 30
feet long-, i-footi -foot wide and 1 inch thick,
this number of 'ties equals .more .tlian
3,000.000,000 aboard feet, or one-twelfth
of all saw timber produced ln'the year.
Nearly. one-half: of the ties were oak;
one-fifth were southern yellow pine and
the "rest were ; cedar/ cypress, J redwood,'
tamarack, ; hemlock, western yellow
pine and other woods which • until re
cently were seldom, used' for' ties, be
cause, they 'were considered Inferior or
were hard to get.' , '^jt^JtSS^J^SJIS^
• Oak.iwhlch still supplies almost.half
the , demand, \u25a0 formerly : supplied ; nearly
all. The ; rapid : extension -of railroads
calls f forr r more tie timber , every year,
while ev*ery year the forests are less
able to furnish the required oak.
- -White' oak' has always been regarded
by 'railroads, as ideal tie material. : It
resists '? decay, holds spikes firmly, and,
although perhaps higher-' ln price," lt>ls
an wood: for.: ties when It
can-be had, because It. lasts longer than
cheaper timber, so that the cost of re
laying is Jess.
' But the -time -has -come when the'
enormous demand -" for. oak- cannot be
met. Wide use >nd "excessive waste
have brought, about this state of af
fa'lrs. Railroads were extravagant and
tie makers were wasteful. . The . forests
were skinned aof ; the;- very trees-'., that
should haye .been. left. to'grow to large
size and become . much f more valuable
for, other, uses. Instead of i cutting
mature which. If left, would not
greatly /increase: in size or value, the
tie industry demanded.; and took the
young trees.thus hot 'only^wasting the
present j forest, ;but - greatly ; reducing
the prospective supply. -. r This .was poor
economy,: and the railroads and the
country, generally are feeling the con
sequences.-' * v
: The/ railroads, though still able to
procure "enough, ties of some kind, see
a shortage in the future and are taking
steps to meet; it. They are using all
timber that can be made, to answer. The
tiel makers, being In immediate touch
with , the t : scarcity \u25a0 of trees, are now
cutting more closely and are using
tops, which were .formerly left to rot
or -burn in^ the , woods." , -Where It Is
practical to do so, they are sawing the
trees,/ Instead of .hewing themr'and • bo
lessening 1 the iwaste."
'\u25a0-< In '"order * to* make j the ;\best use 2of
what [ they \u25a0 j have, ' railroads "are : treating
ties > with i" chemicals , to,,- Increase : 4 thelr
life \u25a0 in^ service. - 4 Several years— with
some" kinds 'of wood as much: as 20
years-^— are -thus; added to, 'the life of
the> tie! Inferior woods are tho very
ones which- best take such treatment.
' ..This isan economy which comes as a
direct result" of the \u25a0 Increasing scarcity
of good tie material. :; It Is . a timely
economy \u25a0 also, ; for it tends to save the
growing /forests without -'depriving the
railroads of what they need.; By taking
the' lead in this .work the forest service
is ?\u25a0 providingi a valuable object lesson
to the public,' shewing -that the. old
order, of waste and' extravagance isa
thing, of the. past and. that, the products
of thevforests^may'be so husbanded as
to offset" the Increasing shortage."
The railroads, ' In ' some : cases, are go
ing still further in wise'economy. " They
are purchasing -tracts whose timber
will come into market after a while for
tles.~ Some 'oft the' transportation com
panies are planting trees in large num
bers, anticipating x needs many," years
hence. .; The; Pennsylvania railroad and
the Delaware and Hudson railway, have '\u25a0
foresters/ employed to- work-out : the
problem of tie supply, to the best ad
vantage. .
'"• AV\ satisfactory substitute " for the
wooden tie has- not been r found and
probablyj will not. be" found. "_ Railroads
understand that; the. supply must grow
and: ; that -its? growth requires; many
years." .. -

PETSCHNIKOFFS THRILL
MUSIC LOVING THRONG
Violinists Present a Pro
gram of Unusual
DELIGHT AUDIENCE
Two of the Numbers Not
Played in America
Heretofore
BERKELEY, July 25.— The Impre*
«ior. hitherto made by the Petschnl
koffs in their concerts at th<s unlver
slty was emphasizea this afternoon,
when .the two' distinguished Tlollnists
appeared in a program of unusual in
terest, in conjunction, with the uni
versity symphony orchestra under Pr»«.
fessor Wolle's direction.*; '
The last word In violin playlny, th»
perfection of art. • the V absolute mas
tery of the finest of all Instruments— '
this /is to be credited .to Alexander '
PetschnikofTs account, and by the same
token to the name of Llll PetschnlkofT,
wife of the famous Russian. Their,
three concerts In the Greek theater,
have provided devotees of music with
such a treat as hardly could ba set*
fortlr in any other metropolis or. center*
of culture : in the land. Thousands
have appreciated the opportunity toi
worship at the Petschnlkoff shrine, and,
at the same time to gain inspiration
and £ knowledge ' and satisfaction = from
the art of the Russian virtuosL
: Today was the climax. The deep joy
of the \u25a0 true music lover in a masterly •
performance ;by a great "artist* on '*;>
great instrument was exhibited this
afternoon. Hundreds Joined In a de
monstration at the close o* the pro-:
gram .which could but have _ beea
gratifying to the artists who ' for. aa
hour and a half had interpreted rarest
music In "superb fashion. .
'\u25a0 Two of the numbers of the program
had not been played before In America."
They were, the, violin concerto .by. Bee
thoven and a. concerto by Zilcher, tha
young German. composer, for two vio
lins. All the skill and art. of Petschni
kort was tested in his rendition \u25a0 of .
Beethoven's wonderful concerto. .In
the three > movements \u25a0 of the number
all of the resources of the master v to- ,
llnist -were . called into play. ,H»
showed himself, as always, the con
summate master of technique and dis
proved the suggestion heard . from a
few : cavllers that "soul" Is 'not . re
vealed . by PetschnlkoCf in his work
with the bow. f '\:.,
< The concerto of Zilcher's was found
to be a notable addition to the great
music; that has been written for tha
violin. Pure, sweet, noble and satisfy
ing from every standpoint of the artist
critic, the concerto found in Mr.. anil
Mrs. Petschnlkoff proper interpreters
of glorious melody.
. The overture 'of .Weber's "Der . Frle
schutz" completed the program.
