Co SUBSTANCE OF ARGUMENT Mr. DeForcst Will Pleaded Clear ness and Simplicity of Exposition. , Before the judiciary committee uf the house of representatives, Attorney John K. Beach yesterday morning made a strong plea in behalf of the bill which is before that committee as to its con stitutionality for the preservation of forests in the Southern Appalachian and in the White Mountains. The bill was referred to the committee headed by Chairman Scott, but when a ques tion as to the constitutionality of pass ing such a measure was raised it was referred to the judiciary committee to settle that point. Mr. Beach made a strong plea and convincing argument for the constitu tionality of the bill. The basis of Mr. Beach's argument was contained in this portion of his brief: The object of the bill is stated In its title and In Section 1 which authorizes "The acquisition of lands more valua ble for the regulation of stream flow than for other purposes, and situated on the water sheds of navigable riv ers." The end and object of the bill is the regulation of stream, flow in navigable rivers. The means proposed to lie used for the accomplishment of that end, is the foresting of the watVr sheds of such rivers. And as a necessary and proper inci dent of such foresting, the bill provides that, subject to the conditions therein stated, the United States should ac quire title to the lands so to be for ested. The above propositions are believed to Include all that may be properly de batable at this hearing which Is con cerned only with the legal question of the constitutionality of the proposed legislation. "The power to regulate commerce comprehends the control for that pur pose, and to the extent necessary, of all navigable waters of the United States, which are accessible from a state other than that In which they lie. For this purpose they are the pub lic property of the nation, and subject to all the requisite legislation of con gress." Oilman vs. Philadelphia, 3 Wallace, 724. Whrn seen last evening Charles S. DeForcst, who Is earnestly engaged In the work of preserving forests and In getting this bill adopted by congress for National Reserves, said: "I have read the brief of Mr. Beach's argument before the house Judiciary -ommlttee at Washington on the Ap palachian and White Mountain bill. The absolute clearness and simplicity of statement with which Mr. Beach 'ays bare the constitutional aspects of the question, and the cogency with which he drives home bis conclusions, compel admiration. He rclzcs upon tVie very pith of the mattrr In th" first paragraph wherein he says, 'The enfl and object of this bill Is the regulation of stream flow In navigable rivers.' As one deeply Interested In this hill, I would be willing to stake Its eonstltu 'lonal soundness upon Mr. Beach's ar gument alone. This Is n layman's opinion, of course. It Is difficult to see how tho judiciary committee can re port adversiy. Mr. Beach has done the cause an Inestimable service. Connec ticut Is to be congratulated upon hav ing so able a representative nt Washington." M ALL ELECTS HEAD Miss Harriet P. Marsh Chosen President of New Haven Branch.
