On the Pilgrims' Trail.
On Thursday, September 2, it Is pro
posed that American members of the
congress be carried by canal boats
from Leyden to Delfshaven-ror at
least a part, of that way—along the!
exact route traversed on July 31, 161^*,1
by the earliest group of Pilgrims that
sought a home In New England. On!
arriving at Rotterdam (of which Delfa
haven is now an integral part) the
visitors will be taken by some larg«i
and commodious vessel around the
harbors, luncheon will be served ou
board and afterward dinner. During
the Interval a service will be con
ducted in the venerable Dutch church
of Delfshaven, and a popular concert
of American and Dutch sacred music
will be given in the cathedral of St.
Lawrence. This edifice, recently re
stored, is one of the most stately and
Impressive In the Netherlands. It Is
replete with historic mementoes, and
as it seats some five thousand hearers
one may Judge what impression this
function may make both on American
and Dutch delegates. It will be the
crowning event in this series. On the
preceding Sundays devotional
have been arranged fo be addressed
by eminent American pastors In the
ancient Scots' church of Rotterdam—
the church of the exiled Covenanters
banished by Charles II—and in the
still more venerable English reformed
church In the Bagynhof. Amsterdam.
The latter is associated not only with
Pilgrim history but with the curious
and heroic stories of the Reformed
Church of America and the Reformed
Church in the United States. It la ex
pected that one of the events of the
Amsterdam visit will be the unveil
ing of memorial windows.
No doubt also the plan to have a
fitting memorial erected in memory of
the Pilgrims at Delfshaven will be car
ried out. We can scarcely exaggerate
what America, and indeed the world,
owes to Holland. And that debt is
due to Holland not merely through the
Pilgrims but through the Dutch Influ
ence In New York and through the
Influence of the Reformed Church In
the United States still further south.
But the main subject of this sympa
thetic Dutch celebration will be the
Pilgrims' heritage—and that is a mar
velous one. The Pilgrims loved liberty
before they sought refuge In Holland
but In Holland they had their love of
liberty Immeasurably deepened and In
tensified. They learned tolerance (as
the most tolerant nation then existing
understood It) they learned repre
sentative government, freedom of
press, personal care and concern for
th TMinf. and ttujh nrvMtMl /«uwun«
a« th» teru't.lnu »f archives, the docu
ment ing of titles mid deeds. And II
must not he forgotten that the twelve
years that the Pilgrims spent In the
"Federation of States" now called Hol
land taught them to analyze and think
out the problems of states' rights and
federal government. Truly Holland
was the nursing mother of the noble
band that afterward founded New
England. »s she was the direct mother
of so much that was at first directly
and exclusively Dutch In the great
All Americans Invited.
All this and ninny new and fresh as
pects of the old questions will be pre
sented at the congress by the best
minds of America—divines and law
yers— and by the best thinkers ol
Holland, the trained sons of, her an
cient schools of learning.
The English celebrations begin nt
the conclusion of the Dutch congress
and last a week. They will be held
in part at Southampton and Plymouth
and In part at Scrooby, the cradle of
the Pilgrim community. Thus the two
series of meetings are closely co-ordi

Rotterdam's Special Claim,
But It is Rotterdam that needs tlfe
more distinctive memorial of the
present hour. For Delfshaven, the
classic spot from which the Speed
well started, is now the most flour
ishing part of the Rotterdam port
and In Rotterdam within the next few
years there will be an enormously In
creased percentage of American ves
sels. The present trying condition of
affairs has only to right itself to a
small degree and that Dutch port wll|
be filled with American shipping. For
years America must feed Europe, and
the vast commercial relations which
this wlil bring about will remain for
generations and grow, long after the
initial necessities of the situation
have passed away. For the American
sailor in Rotterdam there must be a
Sailors' Rest, with modern equip*
ment. It Is proposed to call It tht
Pilgrims' Rest, "Speedwell."
This will be the most worthy me
morial that America can raise. It will
keep alive the story of the Pilgrims

ciates all that Holland has done and
It will provide for the social and spir
itual well being of America's young
sailors, giving them a home and safe
guarding them amid the allurements
and perils of a foreign port. If the
Pilgrims could come back to Delfshav
en and look around them, if they could
be Interrogated this tercentenary year
on what they might consider their
most fitting memorial, It Is safe to con
jecture that they would say, "Build n
house of rest and of prayer for our
own children, the* seafarers from the
West, who throng the streets of this
Dutch city without knowing the ways
of Its people, without speaking Its
tongue." It Is not certain they would
say, "Build the tombs of the prophets
If you will but remember the needs of
the living too. This ought ye to have
done, and not leave the other undone."
The erection of a Pilgrims' Rest at
Delfshaven will be a work of piety,
philanthropy and gratitude.

Forest Figure*.
The quantity of liiinber^j^l every
yeaf tn' the United States Is three
times the natural growth. At the
present rate of destruction the forests
will have ulsappeared in less than a
generation. The center of the lumber
districts has been pushed rapidly
westward until today it has reached
the state of Washington, and Is ap
proaching the Pacific coast. Every
year some 30,000.000,000 cubic feet of
wood is cut in the United States, the
crop being valued at nearly $2,000,
000,000. The most serious drain upon
the forest resources Is for railroad
ties, and the demand Is constantly in
creasing. In spite of the apparently
universal use of coal for heating, the
United States still burns up In the
course of a year OO.ootT.OOO cords of
wood. There are at present upward
of 200,000,000 acres of land set aside
