Forty In Hospitals
Washington, Aug. 29.-Forty em
ployes of the forest service are in hos
pitals as a result of injuries received
in fighting fires in the Northwest.
Many are dead and some have been
blinded in their endeavors to check
the flames.
The information was received by
the forest service from the deputy for
ester at Missoula, Mont. He asked
whether the government could pay the
hospital expenses of the injured men.
He was informed that this could not
be done. Under an order issued by
Secretary Wilson of the department of
agriculture, the forestry employes are
entitled to medical supplies, but it
was stated specifically that this should
rot include surgical attendance or hos
pital fees.
Forest officers take little encourage
ment from the reports from the North
west received at the bureau during the
lay. Although a number of fires are
said to be under control, the fact that
they are still burning causes no little
alarm, as a repetition of last Satur
cay's hurricane might result in the
flames breaking out anew. The weath
er bureau's report, however, says that
heavy rains are prevalent in the
stricken district.

To the Citizens of Montana:
The time is drawing near for the
Fifth Dry Farming Congress and Ex
position in Spokane. The Expositior
will open Monday, Oct. 3, at 1(
o'clock, and will last one week. ThE
Congress will open Monday evening
and close Thursday evening.
Montana should be well represented
by strong delegations from the various
organizations entitled to representa
tion from the farming sections of our
state, either by delegates from county
commissioners and farmers organiza
tions, from cities, or as personal mem
bers of the Congress.
Montana showed to the world at the
fourth Dry Farming Congress and Ex
position at Billings last October, that
she was the leader in the dry farming
movement. Let us keep the pace this
The local committee assures me
that attractive rates will be made into
Spokane, and as Montana as a state is
interested in the working out of this
problem, I believe that as Governor,
I know of no more important move
ment before our people, and I here
with appeal to you to begin the as
sembling of exhibits and the appoint
ment of delegates.
You may correspond, if you please,
directly with the Secretary of the
Congress, Mr. John T. Burns at Spo
kane, and he v'ill be glad to send in
formation, premium lists, etc., when
requested to do so.
Very respectfully yours,
Dry Farmed Wheat Is Best
Spokane, Wash., Aug. 29.-Dry
farmed wheat is declared by one of
the largest concerns in the north
west to be superior to grain grown
on irrigated lands. L. P. Wood of
Billings, Mont, manager of the Rus
sel-Miller Milling company of North
Dakota, writes as follows to John
T. Burns, secretary of the Dry
Farming Congress.
"In this vicinity the dry farming
sections have shown up most favor
ably during the season, when it is
considered that this summer has
b3en the hottest and driest that has
been seen here in many years. The
quality of the dry farmed wheat is
excellent, and this we have deter
mined by very careful laboratory
"For milling purposes the dry
farmed wheat is a great deal more
uniform in quality and quantity of
the gluten is more uniform. This
year's grade has been shown to con
tain from 37 to 47 per cent of good
quality of gluten, while the irriga
ted wheat runs from 30 to 40 per
cent and the quality of gluten is
very uncertain.
"The variety of wheat best adapt
ed to dry farming in this district is
the hard Turkey Red, as it matures
quicker than spring wheat and does
not have the drouth conditions to
contend with so long. This variety
of wheat is excellent milling grain
when ready for market. However,
the farmers should consult their lo
cal millers as to the wheat that is
best to raise in their vicinity."
Mr. Burns says this is the first
time a miller has frankly admitted
the superiority of wheat grown by
dry farmed methods, adding:
"Numerous tests will be made at
the International exposition in con
nection with the Dry Farming Con
gress in Spokane, the week of Octo
3, to further demonstrate the advan
tages of dry-farmed wheat over
grain grown in districts where irri
gation is practised."

Gives Facts Which Seem to Throw Additional
Light on National Forest Situation.
Helena, Aug. 29.--United States
Senator Thomas H. Carter, replying
to a recent interview of Gifford Pin
chot, tonight made this statement:
"Mr. Gifford Pinchot, late chief
forester, has rushed into print to
shift responsibility for the distress
ing forest fires that have devastated
so much of the western country. He
could not but realize that the causes
leading to the disaster which has
overtaken the forests of the west
would be investigated, and he well
knows that investigation will show
that the default rests chiefly with
himself. He says that Heyburn,
Mondell and Carter are responsible
because they opposed appropriations
for forest protection. The fact is
that the gentlemen named opposed
the misapplication of the funds ap
propriated for forest protection.
Reductions in appropriations were
never urged except as to moneys be
ing applied by Mr. Pinchot to pur
poses apart from forest protection.
Since 1896 congress has appropriated
$19,984,680 for the forestry service.
In addition to that princely amount,
the forestry service collected for
timber and use of the forests, with
out direct appropriation by con
gress, a sum which I believe will ag
gregate about $5,000,000. It was
the plain intent of congress and the
country that the money thus appro
priated, collected and used should
be employed to safeguard the grow
ing timber on the public domain
within the limits of forest reserva
"The records of the office over
which Mr. Pinchot presided will
show that of the congressional ap
propriations only $1,875,000 was
used for improvements of the na
tional forests, whereas the extraor
dinary sum of $17,213,060 was used
for general expenses. In addition
and not included in general expen
ses appears a salary list of $796,620.
It will be perceived that about 90
per cent of all the money appropria
ted was used for general expenses,
including the payments for lectures,
the payment of editorial writers and
reporters, the maintenance of a
bureau of publicity and the general
exploitation of Mr. Pinchot and his
absurd campaign for the presidency
of the United States.
"I venture to say that the expen
ditures of the forestry bureau un
der Mr. Pinchot, when critically ex
amined, will show the most amazing
misuse of public funds that ever oc
curred in the history of this govern
ment. If an officer charged with
providing naval equipment or army
stores or the preparation for war
in any form had been found guilty
of only investing about 10 per cent
of the money entrusted to him for
the purpose in view, he would, in
the time of war, be court-martialed
and shot. In the aggregate approx
imately $25,000,000 were entrusted
to Pinchot's bureau, and it now
turns out that no adequate provision
was made to enable the foresters or
the people to stay the ravages of
"Under the Pinchot policy the
settlers were ruthlessly driven from
their homes in the forest regions;
the mining prospectors were prose
cuted and persecuted until explora
tion for hidden mines became bur
densome. The settlers, prospectors
and miners constituted a splendid
firefighting force within the for
"Their expulsion involved start
ling acts of injustice and tyranny,
and their absence from the forests
in the days of need left the unguard
ed timber an easy prey to the
flames. The handful of forest rang
ers did the best they could, but they
could do little because the money
appropriated to prepare for fire
fighting had been misapplied under
the administration of Gifford
