SUITES FORESTRY
Gardner of Boise County in Ad
dress Says It Is Most Import
ant Bill Pending Before the
Legislature.
WILL SAVE IDAHO TIMBER
Authorizes Governor to Name
Commission Which Will
Elect State Forester—Bil
lions of Feet of Timber Needs
Protection.
A slate forestry bureau for the pres
ervation and protection of timber in
Idaho wus backed by the bouse of rep
resentatives Monday afternoon. That
body passed house bill No. 1ST, hav
ing this object* in .view. In an ad
dress containing some startling facts
and figures. Representative Gardner
of Boise county declared the aijf to be,
In his opinion, the most important one
before the legislature, or that had been
Introduced during the session. The
bill was approved by a vote of 51 to 5.
This act creates what is known as
an advisory board, composed of the
governor and two others appointed by
him, upon recommendation of the
United States forest service, and tim
ber fire protective associations. This
commission is empowered to employ
a state forester at a salary of $3000.
VAST TIMBER RESOURCES.
Speaking on the measure before
final passage, Representative Gardner
said in part: . .
"The total forested area in Idaho,
including barren or grazing lands,
young timber growth and merchant
able timber within such area, Is 23,
000,000 acres. This is about 43 per
cent of the total of 53,000,000 acres of
all kinds of land in the state. The
total merchantable timber In the state
is 130,000,000,000 feet, divided about as
follows: White pine, 24,700,000,000, or
19 per cent; yellow pine, 22,100,000,000,
or 17 per cent; red fir, 27,300,000,000,
or 21. per cent; tamarack, 7,800,000,000,
or 6 per cent; other mixed woods, 43,
100.000. 000. Practically all of the white
pine Ms in northern Idaho, and most
Of It is north of the Clearwater.
"It is because of these vast hold
ings and their protection I consider
this bill one of, if not the most im
portant, before the legislature. These
figures are so stupendous that they
must ba converted into more common
terms before they can be grasped. To
Illustrate;
WOULD REACH TO MOON.
"One hundred and thirty billion feet
of lumber would fill 5,500,000 railroad
freight car?; would build a sidewalk
of one Inch lumber 10 feet wide and
2,462,121 miles long—enough to go
around the earth 100 times at the
çquator, or to the earth and the moon
and back five times; build a commo
dious eight room two story frame
l^ouse for every one of the *6,000,000
men, women and children living west
of the Rocky mountains.
"The state owns a forested area of
723,000 acres. Of this amount, there
are about 680,000 acres in northern
Idaho and about 140,000 acres in
southern Idaho.
"In logging and manufacturing this
standing timber into lumber ,at least
)8 per thousand feet, board measure,'
will be paid out in wages to actual
bona /ids residents of Idaho. This
amounts to the enormous sum of $1,
040.000. 000. Or, stated another way,
this sum would employ 6600 men, at
an average wage of $5 per day, 300
days a year, continuously for 138
years.
"In addition to the foregoing, the
lumbermen of Idaho will pay out $
per thousand feet, or $260,000,000, for
supplies, purchased of residents of
Oregon.
"It should be clearly understood that
the $260,000,000 last referred to Is what
the lumbermen—the loggers and man
ufacturers—will pay out for supplies
purchased locally, consisting largely
of agricultural products, such as hay,
tats, butter, eggs, milk, beef, pork,
mutton, chickens, flour, potatoes,
beans, sugar .apples, prunes, eR:,
"Of course, a largo part of the bil
lion dollars in wages will a so be spent
locally.
OTHER COMPARISONS
"Probably 90 per cent of these vast
■urns will come from the sales of lum
ber In the middle western and eastern
markets.
"At $8 per thousand feet for wage»
and $2 per thousand for supplies used
in logging and manufacturing this
timber Into lumber, the state will have
1101,300,000 spent within Its borders.
It Is for this reason that the interest
of the farmers and business men in
this timber is many times greater
than any possible value the sjumpage
can ever have.
"If the state's 10,000,000,000 feet of
lumber Is sent out of the state by rail
road, the freight will amount to over
181,000,000. The freight on the total
of 130,00,000,000 feet means that the
railroads will fight for this tonnage,
A» of xfrnlch spells rallroud develop
ment, more people, more revenue from
taxation.
"It all the standing saw timber In
Idaho, belonging to the state, could be
made up Into lumber at one plant and
placed In the lumber yard In plies of
customary size, it would occupy a yard
Of 5814 acres, or over nine square
*' miles.
"In no'ne of the foregoing figures Is
any Account taken of growth lncre
_ ment nor of posts, poles, plllhg, shin
gles and cordwood.
"A large part of the state's timber
was acquired under congressional
grants for our educational, charitable
and penal Institutions. Practically the
enjy endowments these institutions
have are Bn the form of standing tim
ber. If this timber is destroyed by
forest fires, or otherwise, the endow
ments are almost total losses, since
very little of the land -under this tim
ber can be sold for the minimum of
$19 per acre, below which figure It
cannot be, appraised under the terms
of the grants.
WHAT LOSSES MEAN.
"Every time a thousand feot of mer
chantable timber is destroyed by forest
fires, or otherwise, the workingmen
of Idaho lose $8 in -wages and the
farmers lose $2 that otherwise would
have been spent for camp supplies,
etc. (And the farmers and businer
men lose $8 worth of business which
the wage earner would otherwise have
been able to do with them.
"Thero is today 25,000,000,000 f^et of
standing white pine saw timber in
Idaho, of which the state owns 10 per
cent. Only second to white pine in
quality Is our western yellow pine, of
which there is now standing in Idaho
22,000,000,000 feet, and of this totaL^h 0
state owns about 9 per cent.
"Our state penitentiary needs exten
sions nnd betterments; our capitol
building needs two wings to complete'
lt; the state university must have ad
ditional buildings, and our common
schools should be given thé financial
support necessary to Insure our chil
dren the best educations possible to
obtain in any state.
"Congress has granted the state of
Idaho hundreds of thousands of acres
of land for these Institutions—consid
erable portions of these grants being
located in the largest white pine for
ests now extant. These timber grants,
if properly protected and administered,
will more than take care of the re
quirements of our penal, charitable
and educational institutions.
"Isn't it time for the state of Idaho
to take an inventory of its timber as-
sets; adopt a settled forest policy;
abandon its niggardly, devil-may-care,
haphazard policy touching the protec-
tion of its own timber resources, nnd
create at least a small department to
look after its 10,000,000,000 feet of tim-
ber?"

per could not be reached yesterday.
Eikins is to reach Washington today.
l addition to these, Republicans
claim at least six Democratic votes
-ed and Gore are known to bo defi
ant against the proposed constitution.
IF HAM HAD BEEN THERE.
Democratic leaders today admitted
that they did not know of the Repub
lican plan. Senator Lewis, Democratic
hip, was manifestly surprised when
he entered the chamber and learned
what had happened.
[f I had been there," said Lewis,
whose term ends today, "there would
have been something done about it."
It was late yesterday when Repub
licans finally detlded to go through
with the resolution which has been
under consideration for snmo time.
Representative Medill McCormick,
senator-elect from Illinois, and Sena
tors Lodge, Knox and New, were the
most active In obtaining the pledges.
They planned to spring the resolu
tion about 8 o'clock this morning, but
to get it before the country earlier,
decided to act at midnight.
Senator Sherman, in an early morn
ing speech on the resolution, said;
"The resolution introduced by Sena
tor Lodge will be a signed souvenir
for the president to take with him to
Paris. It will give the gay and light
hearted Parisians some information on
what public sentiment is and will
show them that there is some opposi
tion to the league."
45 EXECUTIONS.
Sherman said that if President Wil
son was correctly quoted in a public
statement, which said ho favored
hanging his opponents, he would re
quire "45 individual gibets to be erect
ed in Washington and 45 separate ev
ecutions this morning.
"If this language is true, the presi
dent must have absorbed queer ideas
in Europe. These words sound like
kings and executioners. If the report
Is untrue ,the publications should be
investigated; if it Is correct, an in
vestigation Is necessary .anyway."
THREE DEAD, TWO BADLY
INJURED IN AUTO CRASH
Council Bluffs, Iowa, March 4.
Three persons were killed nnd two
more probably fatally Injured shortly
after midnight today when a speeding
automobile crashed into the center gir
der of a bridge over Indian creek hero.
The dead are Mrs. J. C. Brock, Ed
gar A. Hutchins, and James Allen. The
injured are J. C. Brock and J. E. Shank.
All the victims reside here.
Witnesses of the accident declared
the car was going 50 miles an hour.
The car struck the girder, spun around
the edge of the bridge and turned over
twice, pinning the occupants under
neath.
SPRING CLEANING TIME IS HERE
If a house needs Spring cleaning,
how about the. human body after a
winter of Indoor life and heavy food?
Mrs. Jennie Miner, R. F. D. 1, Box
58, Davidson, Ind., writes: "I can

CONFEREES TOLD TO
LI
Oregon Speaker Tells Govern
ors and Mayors They Lack
"Cold Nerve" to Say Just
What They Feel.
Washington, March 4.—Governors
and mayors attending the White House
conference were told they "had better
go back home and find out what their
problems were," by George L. Baker,
Oregon.
Baker did not mince words. He de
clared that with the exception of Gov
ernor Cox, Ohio, apparently none of
the members of the conference realized
they were confronted with a real men
ace and that their states and cities
were vitally concerned.
LACK "COLD NERVE"
Baker declared none of the speakers
has had the "cold nerve" to say what
they felt. They charged that."an in
sidious underground propaganda cam
paign" was in operation and that the
only government official who had ad
mitted it was Secretary of Labor Wil
son.
Governor Sproul, Pennsylvania, bit
terly assailed the administration for
what he termed "too over-loving gov
ernment care and supervision." Sproul
directed his attack particularly at
"rails, malls, express and telegraph
service such as this country never knew
before." ,
CITES MAIL DELAYS
Sproul cited mail delays as a "fine
commentary on the methods now In
use." Mail deliveries now average three
to five times as long as formerly, he
asserted.
Governor Cox, Ohio, advocated, as an
aid to stimulating resumption of work,
a "sweeping reduction in freight rates
on load materials."
Cox said the freight rate reduction
might be extended to all glasses of
building material.
This plan, Cox argued, naturally
but the government has the railroads
and is going to stand a loss anyway.
He pointed out that it was not more
unreasonable for tho government tq
take a loss in this form than to pay
the losses occasioned by the wheat
price law,
would result in losses to the railroads,

tlve Jeanette Rankin was given a
rousing send-off by the house. In the
senate, groups clustered about Weeks.
Massachusetts, Lewis, Illinois, and the
others to bid them farewell. Repre
sentative Mondell. Wyoming, read a
tribute to Miss Rankin, declaring she
had shown "womanly grace, which was
not incompatible with public service."
MI88 RANKIN REPLI E8.
There were two prolonged demon
strations during Mohdell's speech and
a third one when. Miss Rankin rose to
reply.
"I am sorry to leave you before the
women of this nation are enfran
chised," Miss Rankin said. "With
you. wjio are to be members of the
Sixty-sixth congress, I leave the
greatest trust, the enfranchisement of
women."
Doorkeepers handed out admission
cards as souvenirs and with a grand
rush to the senate and house restaur
ants on, everybody bnt a few weary
members, too worn out to eat, forgot
all about the Sixty-fifth congress.
Among those who called for a few
minutes' chat with the president be
fore he left the capitol were Chairman
Hurley, t shipping board; Sherman
Whipple, Bostqn attorney; Justice
Brandels, Representatives Heflin and
Small.
About 200 capitol employes and
newspaper men clasped his hand and
bade him good bye. The president
a !*° to °*J!i lve ms cabinet.
GOOD BYE, god LUCK.
Good bye, and good luck" shouted
the crowds as the president smiling
broadly left the room.
Thank you,' he answered as he
stepped aboard the elevator.
Rvery time he was spied by thou
sands pouring from the senate galler
ies ho was greeted with tremendous
nanaclapplng.
The president reached the White
House and his return at 12:30 , for
luncheon before going to the train.
Democratic leaders mustered their
weary forqes just after dawn to dis
cuss means of breaking the filibuster
so that the railroad administration's
Insistent pleas for money might be
answered. Director General Hines has
informed congress than much of the
$750,000,000 will be urgently^noeded no
later than May.
TO FORCE EXTRA 8ESSION.
The all-night filibuster was a final
Republican attempt to force President
Wilson to change his mind about de
laying the extra session till after his
return from France.
Senator Martin, committea
chairman, was to emphatic in hia
demand that the Republicans let
the deficiency bill pats that the
Republicans decided this measure
might prove a better meant of
forcing an extra aesaion immedi
ately than the Victory loan bill.
When Speaker Champ Clark of the
house 'learned of the senate situa
tion he said that unless the rail-,
road appropriation it approved to
day an extra session must ba
called tomorrow. This is impera
tive, Clark declared, if financial
diaaster is to be averted.
At this hour (9 a. m.), It seems
a practical certainty that every meas
ure—excepting the loan bill asked by
President Wilson—will be left un
passed when the session ends at noon.
These measures are:
The army, navy and other depart
mental appropriation bills; the oil
leasing and water power measures;
the sundry civil bill, providing for re
tention of tho federal employment
service and the Lane $100,000,000 home
stead bill.
FAVOR IRISH FREEDOM.
/ While the senate watched the fili
buster, the house passed a resolution
urgjng the peace conference to act fa
vorably on Irish independence. The
vote was 216 to 41.
The rest of the night was spent in
listening to Representative Walsh's
minority report on the National Se
curity league investigation and in call
ing the roll.
President Wilson is expected to
spend an hour or two in his room In
the senate wing today signing bills
acted on in the closing senate.
The last night of the session drew
to the capitol the greatest crowd In
Us history, according to attaches*.
Every corridor and stairway on the
threo floors of the Benntë wing was
jammed until nearly midnight, while
galleries remained full until daylight.
While haggard, sleepy Democrats
rolled from their couches to plan the
final battle, Republicans talked on.
The- filibuster began at 1:15 a. m.
wittt a speech by Senator Sherman.
The night was marked by bitter as
saults on President Wilson.
PERSONAL BITTERNESS.
Charges of gross mismanagement of
tho country's affairs were made by La
Follette and Sherman. Lenroot de
clared the president refuses to call an
extra session at once because he fears
debate on the league of nations may
turn public opinion against his league
plan.
The Republican attacks were strong
ly tinged with personal bitterness
against the president. His reported
criticism of his opponents as men of
"pigmy' minds," whose heads are "knots
to keep their bodies from unraveling,"
added to his unpopularity. Sherman
took this up in a sarcastic speech,
shortly after midnight, In which he
referred to Wilson and Taft as
"luncheon statesmen."
"These distinguished men are al
ways heroes at sömo luncheon or pink
tea," said Sherman. "They will soon
be a distinct class known as the male
luncheonettes."

Jury in Federal Court Returns
Verdict at Early Hour This
Morning—Victory for De
fendants.
After deliberating nearly nine hours,
the jury in the case of the United
States versus the Hennlngsen Produce
company, A. P. Hennlngsen and W. F.
Hennlngsen, found the defendants not
guilty on both counts of the Indict
ment. The verdict wab returned at 1
o'clock this morning.
The case went to the Jury Monday
afternoon, after -arguments by coun
sel for tho prosecution and defense.
Judge Frank S. Dietrich then Instruct
ed the Jury and turned them over to
B. E. Thomas, bailiff.
L. P. Donovan, head counsel for the
defense, made many objectlcyis as to
the instructions of Judge Dietrich
after the Jury had become closeted.
Monday afternoon Maurice Seitz of
Portland, attorney for A. P. Hennlng
sen, argued for tho defense, beginning
at|l:15 o'clock and closing at 2:26
p. m. Assistant United States Attor
ney J. R. Smead theji closed the argu
ment for tho government, and Judge
Dietrich began his Instructions.
The government had been working
for years accumulating evidence In the
case, and had stacks of correspondence
taken from the files of creamery com
panies. From the mass letters of lm
portance were culled,, and the govern-1
ment lai%ely based Its case on their:
assertions, backed up by the testimony
of various witnesses. The defense i
contented itself with placing on the
stand only two of tho defendants, A. P.
and W. F. Hennlngsen.
Tilts between counsel for the prose
cution and defense have been many
and spirited at times, the attorneys for
both sides being the keenest legal
minds in the northwest. Each one was
constantly alert to his interests, and
objections followed each other during
every session of the trial with rapidity.
ASKED FOR DISMISSAL. '
The trial opened February 17. On
that date Attorney Bone for the gov
ernment Introduced 101 letters pur
porting to be between the Hennlngsen
Produce company and the Jensen
C'reaitiery company, to show conspir
acy. More letters followed those in
troduced on lhe first day, until over
500 were finally admitted as exhibits.
Arguments for a dismissal of tlje
case on tho grounds of insufficient
evidence were heard Saturday, attor
neys for the defense so contending,
but being overruled by Judge Dietrich.
Judge Dietfich, however, did dismiss
the case of the gm'ernment against the
Hazelwood Creamery company, Com
mercial Creamery company, Klock
Creamery company and Schallinger
Produce company, and R. S. Goodhue
and Carl Schallinger, managers. The
Hennlngsen Produce company and A
P. and W. F. Hennlngsen were held.
Arguments before the jury began
Monday morning, Leon Bone, govern
ment attorney, with the aid of letters
and excerpts from testimony, giving a
cleat*, concise explanation of the case
of the United States. Attorney
Nolan bitterly arraigned the gov
ernment and Attorney Bone, charg
ing that the government want
ed to punish men for thrift, suc
cess and prosperity. In conclusion, he
asked why the government had not
brought any of the 174 creamery men
alleged to have been oppressed by the
acts of the Hennlngsen company into
court, and asked for acquittal. Attor
ney Seitz closed for tho defense and
Assistant United States District Attor
ney Smead closed for the government.

New 'York, March- 4.—New York
harbor was completely tied up today
by a strike of the Marine Workers'
affiliation, affecting practically all
men employed on harbor and river
craft around this city. It was esti
mated that 16,000 quit work at 6
a. m. ,
Government craft were exempt from

looked deserted, with only a few small
boats visible this morning. Ferries
were halted and service on tubes under
the Hudson river crippled when em
ployes of the tube trains quit in sym
pathy. with the boatmen. Paitlal serv
ice was being maintained under the
river, railroad officials said. Many
Jersey commuters, however, were
forced to cross tho Hudson in launches.
