Scathing Denunciation
of Archbold.
XEW YORK. Soj.t. 22. Following is
the comment of tlie newspapers on the
IJearst-Foraker matter:
The Evening Po-t:
Thoc are extremely dainaj.'inj.' letters
of John 1). ArchboM to Senator Foraker
given ont by !Mr. lk-ar-t in Columbia. O.
provided, of course, that they are gen
uine. Aeeording to the.-e e)i-tles. the
senator and Mr. Arelibold were, in WOO
eight jvars ago- in e!o-e liii-im and
political relation-.. lr. Aiehbold. iee
president of the Standard Oil Company,
sent a certilicate of depo-it for 1.".UOO to
Mr. Foraker on laieh 20. I "loo. and one
for 14.300 on Aiiil 17. when he wrote:
"We are greatly at a loss in this mat
ter, but I .-end tlii-. and will be glad to
have a very frank talk with you when
opportunity offer--, if you mi de-ire. I
need scarcely again epre our great
gratification oer the favorable outcome
of affairs."
I'.etween thc-c two letter- Ir. Arch
bold wrote as follow to the senator:
2(5 Uroadway.
New York, Feb. W, WOO.
My dear Senator: lleie i- -till another
very objectionable bill. Jt i- so out
rageous as to be ridiculous. Hut it need
to be looked after, and I hope there will
Ik; no difficulty in killing it. Am anvious
to hear from you as to the situation as a
whole. Very truly yours.
John D. Archbold.
There are also letters to the senator in
which Mr. Archbold favors the reelection
of Judge Burkett to the Supreme Court
of Ohio, and oppo-cs the candidacy of
Smith W. Rennet, "who wa- as-ociated
with Monett in the ca-e against us in
Ohio." If these letters are not forgeries,
they probably forbid Mr. Foraker's re
turn to the Senate, even though his per
sonal probity remain as heretofore le
yond suspicion.
Letters "Extremely Damaging."
The World:
Mr. Hear.st in his Columbus speech dealt
Senator Foraker a staggering blow. Al
though John 1). Archbold of the Standard
Oil Company, says the relations between
him-elf and the Ohio senator were "en
tirely proper," and Mr. Foraker declare
Aliat his retainer- had no reference to any
legi-lation pending in Congre , the let
ters made public by Mr. llear-t are ex
tremely damaging. When an ollicer of
the Standard Oil Company writes to a
United States senator that 'Mere is an
other very objectionable bill' which
'needs to be looked after, and I hope
there will be no dilliculty in killing it.'
the private nature of the service asked
for is not apparent. Mr. Archbold'.s ad
mission that the letters made public by
Mr. Hearst are not forgeries seems prac
tically certain to end Senator Foraker's
political career. Just at the moment
when the Taft forces had been compelled
to arrange a truce with their most pow
erful opponent within the Republican
party, Mr. Hearst destroys whatever
moral influence Senator Foraker could
exert in the campaign.
The Clobe:
The case of Joseph B. Foraker. whose
usefulness is manifestly at an end unic
he can meet the apparently damning evi
dence again-t him. is one of the saddest
.. in American politic-. Mr. Foraker ro-e
to prominence a- the leader of the Young
Republicans of Ohio. A vigorou- parti
ban, but his impetuosity seemingly a
proof of his hone-ty. pa ion.tte in
friend-hip for the Union soldier- and of
gallant war record, an eloipient defender
of popular right-, he received the com
pliment of being called a demagogue.
The people are forever looking for a
leader-who i- not a 1k . and Foraker
seemed to meet the requirements, lie
won the heart of Ohio, and was twice
elect iil governor, and mention of his pov-
erty was a feature of every dc-criptionif
him. At some fatal hour the incon-
veniencc of being poor became too strong
for him. At anv rate, in a short time he

New Record for Aeroplane
Made by American in
Experts Say Next Step Will
Be Carrying of
I.EMAXS, France, Sept. 22. Wilbur
Wright, the American who-e wonderful
aeioplane llights have brought the representative-
of the war departments of
France. Cermany and Italy to Lenians.
yc-terday made a flight over the mili
tary field at Avours la-ting 1 hour. "1
minutes and 2.1 second-.
Tlii- record exceeds y one hour the
longest aeroplane llights ever made in
Euiope. It eclipses the record of Mr.
Wright's brothel. Orville Wright, in
America, by 17 minutes.
The brilliant gathering of army olli
cials were roused to a freny of excite
ment by the wonderful flight. When
Mr. Wright brought his aeroplane gen
tlv to the ground the crowd surged
about him. Only the quick maneuver
ing of a detachment of cavalrv pre
vented the machine from being di-abled
by the enthusiastic spcctatoi-.
This is the lirst ilight that Mr. Wiight
ha- made at Avours since the unfortun
ate accident to the aeroplane of his
brother in America last Thursday when
Orville Wright was badly injured and
his companion killed.
Nevet Lost Control.
At no time during the Might did Mr.
Wright lo-e control of hi- aeroplane.
The ca-e with which he soared up and
down and the even balance of the ma
chine in turning sharply astounded the
gaping spectators.
Aeronautical experts present at the
trial said that the duration of the Ilight
and the obedience of the machine to
the will of the operator has advanced
the science of navigating the air in
heavier than air machines to a point
where the next step will be the construc
tion of larger aeroplanes for several
Apparently Mr. Wright could have re
mained in the air as long as hi- supply
of gasoline la-ted.
As his pie-ent machine is compara
tively small, his gasoline siipplv will
not last over two hours. Moreover the
steady running of the engine for such a
length of time taxes its delicate con
struction. A larger aeroplane would
make po ible the carrying of two en
gines which could be run alternately,

Experiment Stations Will Be
Established in Western
Value of the Plan Has Been
Conclusively Proved
WASHINGTON. Sept., 22. Forest ex
periment stations will soon be establish
ed in a number of the national forest.
States of the We-t according to plan
which have just been completed by the
United States Forest Service. Thc-c
new stations are expected to do the
same for the development of American
1'orc-ts as agricultural experiment sta
tions have done for the improvement of
the country's larnis. As a lirst step in
this work an experiment station has al
ready been established on the Coconino
National Forest in the Southwest, with
headquarters at Flagstall". Ari. Stations
in other national forests will 1m? estab
lished later, anil it is the intention ulti
mately to have at least one experiment
station in each of the silvicultural reg
ions of the West.
One of the most important parts of
the work of the new experiment sta
tions will be the maintenance of model
forests typical of the region. These areas
will furnish the most valuable and in
structive object lessons for the public
in general, for professional foresters,
lumbermen and owners of forest land,
and especially to the technical and ad
ministrative officers of the national for
ests. In the recently established station
on the Coconino National Forest one of
the lirst problems to be taken up will
be the study of the reproduction of
We-tern yellow pine and the can-es of
its success and failure. A solution of
this problem of how to obtain satisfac
tory reproduction of the yellow pine is
of the greatest practical importance to
the Southwest, since the yellow pine,
which is by far the 1110-t valuable tree
there, i- in many ea-es not forming
a satisfactory second growtii. The study
will be carried on largely by means of
-ample plots, which will be laid out
for future observation to determine the
effects of grazing, of the different
methods of cutting and di-po-ing of the
biu-h. and of other factors on the suc
cess of reproduction.
To Study Light Requirements.
Other studies which will be taken up
-0011 are a study of the light require
ments of different species at dilferent al
titudes and the construction of a scale
of tolerance which will be based on the
actual measurements of the light in
tensity, and not only as has hitherto
been the case, on general observations
alone; the taking of meteorological ob
servations to determine the effect of the
forest upon temperature, humidity, melt
ing of snow, wind velocity, etc.: a study
of the relative value of the germinating
power of seeds from trees of dilferent
siyes, ages and degrees of health: and
similar studies of value to the region.

Like Mr. Sibley, he. too, had been threa

as little effect. Following the flag of

A complete collection of the llora of the
forest will le made to form a herbarium,
which will be kept in the foiest and will
be available for reference at any time.
These stations will carry on scientific
experiments and studies which will lend
to a full and exact knowledge of Ameri
can silviculture and the indirect benefits
of the forests, and will deal particularly
with those problems of particular im
jHUtanee to the region- in which they are
While work of this character is new in
this country, it is not without precedent
abroad. The value of the systematic or
ganization of forest re-eaich work wa
ollicially recognied in flcrinany in
1S70, when the first forc-t experiment
station was c-taiiii-iieu 111 liaden. in con
nection with the I'olytcchnikum at Car-
Isrube. Half a doen ot the Herman
States followed the example, instituting
main experiment stations in connection
w ith forest schools, and branches in va
rious forest districts. The work done
is intensely scientific, and the policy of
forc-t experiment stations is steadily
growing in favor. In India, where after
half a century of administration the
status of the forest is hardly better
than in the United States at present,
the work of research has been almost
wholly neglected, and the result is ap
parent in the poor progress of technical
Imperial Institute Established.
Very lately, however, the need has
been recognized by the Government, and
an Imperial Forest Bescarch Institute
and College has been created at Dehra
Dun. with a faculty cho-cn from the
Imperial Fore-t Service. In the United
States considerable research work has
already been done in connection with for
est problems, but the chief trouble so
far has been the lack of persistence and
permanence which has characterized the
work, and failure frequently to consider
all the factors which are involved. The
new system provides for the permanent
assignment in a given region of specially
trained men who will have an oppor
tunity to become thoroughly familiar
with their region, and the work will
thus be conducted with the greatest ef
fectiveness and Jca-t expense.
