' TODAY'S EVENTS Cardinal Gibbons today enters up on his 60th year in the priesthood and his 35th year in the cardinalate. Fifty years ago today saw the grad uation of the first woman from an American law school Ada H. Kep fey, pt Effingham, 111. - . Today is the twentieth anniversary of the great dock fires at Hobofien, N. J., in which 145 lives were lost I and millions iir- property destroyed. ; ' After nearly 15 years of continuous I service, , John Barrett today will re tire from the office of director gen eral of the Pan-American Union. Major General John A. Lejeune, who distinguished himself in the World War, today will become conv mandant of the U. S. Marine Corps in succession to Major General George Barnett. , . I ' A general primary will be held in SCARCIJ Ysf TIMBER In response 'to a resolution intro duced by Senator Capper, of Kansas, and passed during the last days of the recent session of congress. Sec retary, of Agriculture Meredith, in transmitting a repor tot the forest service upon timber depletion, attrib uted the high cost of lumber and of newsprint to the using up of the for ests east of. the Great Plains. In part we are suffering from the after effects made during the late war' to conserve the timber supply for the purposes of our military and naval establishments. But the cause date are necessarily destroyed in the clearing of lands. ,But these are uses referred to by the secretary when he says that : "Timber depletion has not resulted from the use of our forests, but from their devastation. There are 463,000, 000 acres of forest lands of all classes in the United States, including burned, culled, and cutover. Of this amount 81,000,000 acres is an unpro ductive waste. Upon enormous addi tional areas the growth is so small in amount or of such inferior charac ten. that, its economic value -is negli back of the war many years back. J gible. ,. These forest lands will pro- it was not the excessive use of timber duce the timber required by the coun in constructins encamnmentn nnri vessels, but the reckless destruction of trees through many years that is responsible for 'the present high prices and scarcity of timber that, together with high wages, is tying the hands of many who wish to build homes for uor ever-increasing popu lation. That waste contlnnon There is an ancent proverb that runs "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad." There is mad ness in our reckless waste of our timber resources and in the present disregard of warnings as to the in evitable consequence. We are still, in this country, using timber four times as fast as we are growing it Nearly two-thirds of the ' timber left is west of the Great' Plains,, whence it must be brought to the ports east of the plains at great . expense for transportation. The freight blls on the average thousand feet of lumber are rising steadily. Southern Dinn has risen in less than fifteen years from $25 to $35 a thousand feet to $80 and $85. Trees cut down ior try if they are kept at work full time growing tres. But unless timber growth takes th place of devastation from forest fires and destructive methods of cutting, our consumption of plumber must drop to the level of European countries, where wild is an imported luxury." Some of the forest fire's are pre ventable. The Forest Service has done beneficial work in conserving the wealth of the country in recent years by preventing or checking for est fires.. This is on of the sub-de partments of the national governmnt which has been crippled by the "pennyrwise, poundfolish" policy of congress in cutting down the appro priation for continuing the activities of. the United States department of agriculture. . The remedy is a national policy of reforestration, in cooperation with the states, if possible. The need of reforestration may be disrerarrlrl now,, but the 'country will pay for such neglect at a Jtreatlv increnanA rata jof interest in the future.

He made his state ment in the manner of a man who thinks he' has the power to compel the convention to perorm as he wants it to. " Mr. Bryan is going to have a "dry" plank in the platform. .That is what he says, and the most recent informa tion is' that he is.sb; welding his forces that he will make the conven tion eat out of his hand, on that par ticular plank, j . He says that if the "wets" secure the adoption of a plank advocating the reformation or amendment of the Volstead law, in . the committee's re port he" will take the matter to the floor of the convention and that he will compel not only a roll call of the states but a recorded vote from ev ery delegate, a" rather unusual pro ceeding. ' But It would be the same kind of backfire t ahtpractesenetoainsrhduln lution for the eighteenthNamendment over In congress. There the con gressmen were threatened with a backfire In their home districts un less they voted in accordance with the behests of Uhe Anti-Saloon League. The threat was - sufficient, and timid congressmen and senators fel lover themselves in voting as they were ordered. . Mr. Bryan is shrewd enough to know that by his threat he can com pel compliance with his wishes. The delegate who attends the convention ho matter what his personal ideas may be on the subject of the Volstead law, will not care to o on ramra favoring a change in the law when his act will subject, him to the vin dictive criticism of the ultra days in his home state and community. Hence they will head off the individ ual roll call by agreeing to the terms of the advocate of the dry, plank be fore the vote is taken. ( ' . It is one of the humors of the situ ation that so much fuss is made over, a matter that is really settled and settled by the highest authority in the country, but still has enough kick in it to imperil the political chances of any man who goes on record as not favoring further action in the way of political declarations in favor of a law already being enforced with all the power and ingenuity of the government It Is to laugh.-Miami Herald.
