THE PURPOSE OF NATIONAL FORESTS ________ ro Encourage the Growing and Preser vation of Trees for the People Deprivation Only for Timber Grabbers. The Star, desiring to get all possi ble information in relation to the meaning to the people of this section of the National Forest Reserve, has, through a representative, inter viewed Dr. A. W. Wright of this city, who through his association with the work and the government agents is probably the best posted on the subject of any man m this part of Arkansas. Dr. Wright speaks with a conviction based on a full knowledge of his subject. He says that the movement is being promoted and conducted by men of the highest integrity whose efforts are guided by a thorough knowl edge of the conditions that have been brought on by the timber grab bers and the protection that they know is absolutely necessary to save to the people of the country even a small remnant of what a few years ago were considered as in exhaustible forests. He says that the movement is not only a good thing, but it is the very best thing that could happen. Also that it would have been much better had it been done ten years ago when the geological survey of this region was made. “How will it effect the develop ment of this immediate country?’’ was asked. “It will not effect the agricultural I _1.. n_nil 4-ltn Innrlu tFlof 1 dlIVJO. a iavvio«iij ---- can be taken up for agricultural or pretended agricultural purposes have already been taken. Most of them have in reality been taken for the timber only and the timber has been sold off and the lands deserted. “Wherever there is a reasonable amount of good agricultural land the government will extend the rights of homesteaders by leaps and bounds. In other words, when a 25 or 30 acre farm can be found in 5 or 10 acre pieces a number of these pieces can be homesteaded, even though they are not joined or even near together. “All fallen timber can be had free of cost for fuel or other purposes by settlers on adjacent lands provided that it is secured without trespass ing in such a manner as to destroy young timber. “Timber will be furnished free for all public buildings and structure.?, such as school houses, churches, bridges, etc., “Any reasonable timber that is needed for the actual use of settlers and for the maintenance of their homesteads can be had free under direction of the forest reserve offi cers. “In other words it is the policy of the government to protect the for ests for the use of the actual settlers and the people and from destruction by timber grabbers and the wealthy corporations whose great gains have come through plundering the peo ple and the nation of their natural rights and wealth. “Should the government at any time see fit to sell any timber it will do so to the highest private bidder and it will be cut only under the j supervision oi me lorest re l serve officials and in such a manner as to preserve the young timber so that it may in a few years replace that taken off. The revenue thus secured goes, 90 per cent to pay the j cost of the forest reserve service ; and 10 per cent to the school fund of the county from which the tim ber is sold. “It is pointed out that the fires that apparently burn out little but the underbrush and leaves are in reality most harmful to the growth of tim ber . That in addition to doing great harm to the large standing timber by often burning trees sufficiently to sap their vitality and making them subject to attacks of borers and insects, they do not kill the young shoots and underbrush, but kill the tops, and for each one killed a number will shoot up, adding to the substance taken from the ground, and detracting from the chance of any one being able to survive and really take the place of the older trees. Then again, th" ground needs the protection and no irish ment of the fallen and rotting foli age which is destroyed by the fires. In this matter of fires the govern ment is very strict. It will have its agents continually on the ground, and should a fire be started they are authorized to call upon any able bodied man to assist in extinguish ing them. These men must serve or pay a penalty, and they must serve without pay. It is pointed out that if the government were to pay for this work there might be some who would be glad to see fires started in order to secure pay. “In addition to this, it is the duty of officers to find out how and by whom any fire is Htar'ed, and when every man in a district is liable to be called upon to assist in putting out such fires, it can be seen that it would be very uncomfortable for any man guilty of such an offense.” In addition to all these steps to preserve and encourage the best growth and preservation of the tim ber for the actual inhabitants of the country in the timber regions, and for its effect on climate and rainfall the government does other things It builds, improves and maintains good roads for its own use and for the good of the people. Telephone lines are constructed for the use of the forest service, but are also at the service of settlers. Dr. Wright said, in closing: “I want to say to the people: Go slow in condemning a man or men before you know what they are doing. Behind the forest service are men of brains and men above reproach whose whole aim is to do their very best to protect the intei ests of the country and the people not only of the national government but of Arkansas. The men you should watch are the ‘timber grab bers.’ ” The reserve in Polk county is com posed of 175,000 acres and practi cally takes in all the mountain lands which have not already been taken under the homestead laws, A map showing these can be seen at the office of The Star.
