Continental newspapers comment on its

Fisher Prepares Budget and
Urges Appropriation
by Congress
Department Would Make
Playgrounds More Ac
cessible to Tourists
Pp«eial Diepilc-h to The Call
WASHINGTON, Dec. B.—The depart
-1 ment of the interior proposes to spend
$288,403 in the national parks in Cal
ifornia during the fiscal year ending
June 30. 1914, if the amount requested
by Secretary of the Interior Fisher is
i appropriated by congress , . This, is an
increase of $170,90S over the current
fiscal year. The Increases requested
Yosemite National park from $80,000
to $223,703; Sequoia National park from
$15,550 to $29,900; General Grant Na
tional park from $2,000 to $4,800. The
principal items for each park are as
Yosemite National park—lmprove
ment of big Oak Flat road from Gen
trys to the floor of the valley in order
to make it salte for automobiles; im
proving and widening road from Camp
Ahwanee to Yosemite village: concrete
bridge over Merced river near El Cap
itan; extension of road sprinkling srys
tem for Yosemite village to Happy
Isles and Camp Lost Arrow; improve
ment of trails to Yosemite falls. Eagle
peak. Glacier point, Nevada falls. Tit
till valley and Lake Vernon; construc
tion of new trail from Yosemite point
via White Wolf, Harden lake and
Smith meadows to junction with Hetch
Hetchy trail on Poopenaw meadows;
sprinkling El Portal-Yosemite road
and general improvement and mainten
ance of roads, trails and bridges?.
Sequoia National park — Widening
Grand Forest mad; experimental oil
ing of three miles of road, extension
of telephone line*, stairway on Moro
rock; general repairs and administra
General Grant National park—Three
fourths of a mile of new road in or
der to give separate route to automo
biles; water supply system for tourist
camp; fencing camp grounds.
For the development and care of the
national parks Fisher has asked con
gress to appropriate $733,014, an in
crease of $505,464 over the appropria
tions for the current fiscal year. The
national parks constitute ideal recrea
tion grounds for thousands of persons,
but their use is seriously retarded by
the lack of adequate roada and trails,
and until sufficient money is appropri
ated for a comprehensive plan of de
velopment the parks will fall short of
rendering the important public use for
which they are intended.
It is the intention of the department
to make the principal places of inter
est in the park more accessible, to ren
der traveling more comfortable by
sprinkling the roads throughout the
dry season and to guard the health of
the traveler by th-e installation of
proper water supply and sewerage
The responsibility for the future con
duct of the national parks must rest
with congress, but the department feels
that the flnanciel needs of these reser
vations should be clearly presented to
congress fn the annual estimates.

Great Orange, Olive and

OROVILLE. Dec. B.—The beauties of
the Feather river canyon, which were
opened to the world by the advent of
the transcontinental Western Pacific
railroad, today were viewed by the
members of the San Francisco Com
mercial club, the Oakland boosters, the
delegates to the counties convention
of the California Development board,
and members of the Oroville Chamber
cf Commerce and prominent citizens in
the special train of eight coaches. This
noted assemblage of the state's lead- |
ing citizens made the trip through the |
canyon as far east as Belden in Plumas
county, 55 miles northeast of Oro
The day was an ideal one. The sun
rose unobscured by clouds. The morn
ing was cold, but in their comforta
bly heated cars the excursionists sat
back and enjoyed the panoramic views
unfolded to them as the train sped
along, rounding curves, hanging close
to the precipitous cliffs towering above
and looking over the lofty embank
ment into the clear waters of the river
below. Occasionally a trout or a salmon
was sighted for an instant in the
waters below. On the mountain sides
there were the primeval forests of
pine. Many of these have never felt
the blow of a lumberman's ax. The
train stopped in Los Plumas, where the
Great Western Power Company has its
great plant. Here the electricity is
generated that is delivered by a lofty
steel tower line ending at San Fran
After a hasty survey of this plant
from the opposite bank of the north
fork of the Feather river, the train
sped en around the famed big bend, a
distance of 14 miles, to reach the In
take to the tunnel that goes through
the mountain to the power plant In
IjOS Plumas. The huge masonry dam
was viewed. On the r"eturn trip the
train was stopped at tunnel 4, three
miles east of Oroville, and the excur
sionists enjoyed a climb over the hill
sides, gathering the so-cßlled Cali
fornia holly, which was in the berry.
These berries were loaded upon the
train and will be used in decorating
offices and homes of many of the Oak
landers and San Franciscans. The
train on its return reached Oroville
in mid afternoon and the excursionists
were due In San Francisco late to
Today was the closing day of the
second annual Oroville orange, olive

jolly one and the true carnival spirit
which had its beginning earlier in the

advantage of the closing hours of the
exposition to view the exhibits, which
have been described to them as the
best ever made in the county, by their

According to a report made by local
authorities there has been but two ar
rests for serious offenses here during

The large number of tourists arriving In San Francisco daily from all
