Forestry Department to Issue Dia
gram Mats
Washington, Aug. 1.—Sporadically
[a report appears that the additions to
tbe national forests made by exeou
f tire proclamtion March 3 were not
[ valid because the proclamations were
loot "by metes and Founds,'' and that
[ the pociamations were hastily prepar
ed, and that the legality of the pro
clmations may be successfully at
tacked. This report is now claimed
by the forest bureau as baseless.
When the matter was put up to as
sociate Price he made the following
official statement.
'The boundaries of all new uat
ioual forests are now regularly es
tablished by diagram. It appears
from an explanation of the method
made by Acting Forester Price today
that the reason for this change is
primarly the public convenience.
'National forest proclamations have
used diagrams to indicate boundaries
ertr since the Jemez forest, in New
Mexico, was established, October 12,
1905. Prior to that time worded
descriptions by metes and bounds
were employed, but met with many
objections because such descriptions
bad little meaning for the ordinary
person, and often puzzled surveyors
whan they undertook to follow them.
''Now when the field no es have
been accurately platted and the
boundary fixed the diagram is re
j produced by photography. Hun
derds of copies are printed to ac
company the proclamations and to be
distributed among the people who
I are directly interested. The infor
mation comes in a way easily under
stood. The printed diagiam shows
the boundaries and the relations to
the adjacent , country muoh more
clearly than could be set forth I y
worded descriptions. It is uo longer
necessary for individuals to make
tbeir own maps of national forest
boundaries with the chance of getting
tbt lines incorrect through improper
reading or platting of the worded
description. The photographic re
production preseuts at a glance just
the information desired."

{special from Boise states that at
torneys for the Western Federation of
Miners are preparing to kriug suit
against Dan Cardouer iu the uaoie of
the wife and child of Harry Orchard

|conveyance of Orchard's interest in

Jesse D Root of Butte, partuer of
Peter Breen, has just returned from
Canada with authority to act. and

Breen claims to have an agreement
with Orchard that he will repudiate
his confeasiou, laying the whole

' is not generally believed. The suit
! is being brought iu ho|>es that thia
'appeal to Orchard's avareie will iu

which was in realitv a mortgage to
secure indebtedness of Orchard to
Tbe claim ia also set up that the
failure of the wife to join in tbe deed
to Cardouer will invalidate it, and

property will also be claimed. Car
doner. who is In Wallace, refuses to
