The advocates of thf plan of the federal government, establishing two Immense parks In the .Appalachians of the South, and tlie White mountains of New TCnplniid will enrry on their tight In congress this winter with unabated visor. They will liesln activities on the third day of the coming session. Next. Wednesday friends of the project will come again before the house committee on agricul ture, asking that the Brandegcn hill, or a similar measure, authorizing the tahllshmcnt of these parks, he reported favorably to the house as soon as pos sible. Although the Rrandegee, bill pass ed the senate last session, it made no progress In the house. The project for the purchase of lands to establish those reservations was given a. blow by the house committee on judiciary, from vhlch It did not recover during the sewdon. That committee reported to the boiKe that the 1'nlted States gov ernment could not purchase lands for the purpose of conserving the forests of the country, but allowed the pro posal a chance to live by adding that tb federal government might pur.-ha.se forests or land of any sort In order to protect the navigability of streams. Many of the arguments produced In the hearings before the boose cnnimlt te on agriculture have been made with 8. view of conserving the forests of the 1'nlted State... Now that the project Is declared to be Illegal tf taken up by the government with that end In view, It Is desired to present arguments to show how the establishment of these parks will protect the navigability of utreams over which the federal govern ment htw jurisdiction. The hearings were requested hy Philip W. Ayres, state forester of Now Hampshire. Acting upon this Represen tative Charles F. Scott of Kansas, chairman of the committee on acrleul tud has called a meeting of that com mltoe for next. Wednesday, In which n large number of members of the a tlrinal Forestry association will take part.
