Washington, Jan. 27. President
Roosevelt has just signed a proc
lamation making a National Monu
ment of the Grand Canyon of
Arizona, and another creating an
addition of 1,288,320 acres of land
to the Tonto National Forest which
is also located in Arizona.
The world-famed Grand Canyon
has been a part of the Grand Can
yon National Forest, and its estab
lishment as a National Monument
is made by virtue of the Act of
June 8, 1906, which provides that
objects of scientific interest may
be declared National Monuments
if such action is deemed necessary
for their preservation and protec
tion The President, speaking of the
importance of protecting the Grand
Canyon as a National Monument,
says in his proclamation: "It is
an object of unusual scientific in
terest, being the greatest eroded
canyon within the United States,
and it appears that the public in
terests would be promoted by re
serving it as a National Monument,
with such other land as is necessary
for its proper protection."
It has long been realized that it
was highly desirable to have this
wenderful gorge made by the Col
orado River, set apart as a Na
tional Monument. This assures
the area of exclusion from all kinds
of entry, and means that the Gov
ernment will have power to prevent
the marring of the scenic beauty
by unsightly exploitation of any
kind. The area put in the Na
tional Monument constitutes ap
proximately S25.230 acres. In
determining the boundary of the
National Monument an effort was
made to draw the line approximate
ly one mile back from tne rim of
the canyon.
Souvenir Craze Costly.
The souvenir fad has become so
epidemic here that hotel managers
are seriously thinking of forming
themselves into a protective as
sociation. They say the craze costs
them many thousands annually.
They propose to place detectives in
the dining-rooms to watch the
silverware on the tables, for it is
here where hotels suffer the great
est loss. The articles purloined j
run all the way from demi-tasse
spoons to silver sugar bowls and
cream pitchers, with the former
greatly in demand.
Milady for it is among the
gentler sis that the habit has be
come most chronic admires the
pretty and attractive spoons or salt
and pepper service. "Let's take
it home as a souvenir,'' they will
say to each other. Either one will
then deftly hide it, and no one is
the wiser. New York Letter.
