WRATHY OVER DISPATCHES.
There is indignation over the dis
patches sent out from Olympia, Wash.,
insinuating that. Gifford Pinchot is as
sisting the big lumbermen of the west
in what the dispatch terms an arrange
ment whereby much of the available
timber lands remaining in the west will
be soon in the hands of these lumber
men. While the law ' is supposed to
bring a higher price for the lands of
the government, the dispatch states
that it is but an easy way-fer the big
timbermen to secure control of the
lands in question.
The claim of government officials at
Portland is'that the law in question or
iginated with Secretary Of the Interior
James R. Garfield and that the forest
service-only suggested that the govern
ment get a fair price for such lands.
They say that the interior department
and not the forest service, sees that the
law is obeyed and that the statement
placing responsibility upon Pinchot is
“It was the most malicious and most
twisted_ statement I eVer saw publish
ed, ’’"said Shirley Buck, chief of the de
partment of operation of the national
forest service. “There is hardly a fact
in that report that is founded on' facts.
We have nothing to do with either
operation or the enactment of the law.
Hence, I cannot see how Pinchot can
be blamed for any wrong, if there is
“According to the old way of selling
timber lands under the timber and stone
acts no timber lands could be sold for
any price other than $2.50 an acre. This
was a strict interpretation of tne law
by the former secretary bf the interior,
which read that less than $2.50 an acre
meant to sell at that price. Secretary
Garfield used another interpretation,
however, and decided that $2.50 an acre
was a minimum price and that a fair
price above that was legal. According
ly a cruising system was inaugurated,
making it possible for the value of the
timber to be ascertained and a fair
price obtained. ”
