Parts of the Medicine Bow For est too are at such a high altitude and there is much snow this year that the stockmen have authorized their advi sory board to negotiate with the Forest ry Bureau for a reduction of the foe in proportion to the shortness of the season. At this meeting came up the question of expense for the detection and prose cution of the late thefts by Douglas Luugholf It appeared that the parties injured have so far borne the expense of detection, production of evi dence and the stockmen are agreed that under the customs of the range there should bo some sharing of this burden by tlul association; but there is some disagreement as to the point of view to take of the transaction. The issue is whether to compensate these parties for their expense or to pay the reward authorized to bo offered by the Association’s Executive Committee, but not offered in this case because the fact of the theft was not made public until prosecution commenced, and the evidence was already secured. The Association tendered a vote of thanks to Dr. Delaney of Wyoming for his services in preventing the spread of cattle diseases and his liberal co-oper ation with the stockmen last year.

On the contrary, I am authorized by the President to say that he is in entire sympathy with the forest and the conservation policies as already developed and stands behind them. This statement is wholly unnecessary to those aquainted with the real situa tion. It is made only in answer to the i large number of questions asked me during my recent trip through the west and since my return. These questions had to do with rumers to the general effect that the administration is out of sympathy with the forest policy and the conservation policy. In order to set these rumers at rest by an autlioritve statement of what I already knew to be the fact, I thought it best to lay them before President Taft. Accordingly it , is with his authority that I mrke the above statement. I am also authorized by the President to deny categorically the story that great areas are to be thrown out of the National Forests by Presidential procla mation. The only possible basis for i such a rumor that I have been able to discover lies in certain plans adopted by the Forest Service months ago. These plans were in accord with lines of policy loug recognized and astablished. They were approved by Secretary Wilson and they provided for a careful examination and mapping of the boundaries of the National Forests and of the character of the land, and the timber and other growth, along these boundaries. Repeated charges, well known to be baseless by those actually acquainted with the situation on the ground, have 1 been made, that the National Forests contain vast areas of agricultural land. Whatever agricultural lands may be found along the boundaries will be re stored to entry, for ono of the strongest desires of the Forest Servics now and in 1 the past is that any agriculiural lands which may have been included in Na tional Forests should be open to use for agricultural purposes. Indeed this is already provided for in the act of Juno 11, 1900. The Forest Service undeatook the mapping of the National Forest boundaries on its own initiative in the i regular line of its work and in pursuance of general plans laid years ago. I have been greatly interested, but not at all surprised by the persistent circulation of those rumors. President Taft’s statement to me, coupled with his authority to make It public, shonld sot them at rest once and for all. The present administration is in the fullest sympathy with forestry and conserva tion. Friends of these movements should recognize their obligation to the President for his prompt and direct support.
