OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
lngton, Sept. 6. When one-fourth of the
area of the State of Oregon, Including
come of its most valuable lands, has been
withdrawn from all form of settlement
and entry, with the Intention of ultimate
ly making these withdrawals permanent.
it is time for the people of that great
commonwealth to pause and consider the
situation which confronts them.
Such a time Is the present. Such an Is
sue has been raised, its settlement is
the question of but a few years. Are the
people of Oregon to be heard in their own
behalf? Are their wishes to be respected
or are the fancies of theorists to be car
ried out regardless of the demands of an
educated and enlightened public? Are the
people of the state to have a voice in the
disposal of its vast public domain, or are
their demands to be set aside, their pro
tests unheeded, their requests totally ig-
nored? These questions must soon be an
swered. The crisis Is fact approaching.
The result Is purely problematical.
Beyond Reach of Settler.
It Is no exaggeration to say that one-
fourth of the land area of Oregon has
been segregated, by order of the Secretary
of the Interior, and is today beyond the
reach of the settler and the homesceker.
The foregoing figures are the strongest
testimony. There are, in effect, in Oregon
at the present time, ten distinct with
drawals made for forestry purposes, on
recommendation of the Bureau of For
estry, under GIfford Pinchot These with
drawals contain approximately 464 full
townships, or 10,690,560 acres. Add to this
the present area of the Cascade reserve,
4,436,120 acres, and the figures closely ap
proach one-fourth of the area of the state.
The state's area is 61,277,440 acres. Un
fortunately, the exact acreage of the for
est reserve withdrawals' are not definitely
known, but the figures are conservative.
For all practical Intents and purposes, it
may be said that one-fourth of the area
of the state Is either now included In
permanent forest reserve, or Is tempo
rarily withdrawn from all settlement and
disposal, pending investigations to deter
mine what portion of the withdrawn
lands shall be converted into permanent
Activity Began a Year Abo.
Activity along the line of forest reserve
extenslo'n in Oregon began about a year
ago, when 136 townships In the Blue
Mountain country of Eastern Oregon were
first segregated. This has been followed
from time to time with other withdrawals,
until the present grand total has been
The figures referred to are to some ex
tent misleading. The actual area of lands
that have been affected by withdrawal
orders Is considerably less than shown
In the table. These figures represent the
total area of lands Included within the
exterior limits of withdrawal. Inas
much as the orders affect only vacant
public lands, within those limits, the
acreage withheld from settlement and
disposal is somewhat less than 10,000,000
acres. To determine' the exact amount
would require weeks of study of the
tract books of the land office, and up to
the present time developments have not
reached such a stage as to warrant the
undertaking of this enormous task. It
"Is a work that must be done sooner or
later, but Is being postponed until the
actual necessity arises.
Moreover, If it should be determined,
in the meantime, to abandon any of the
proposed reserves, such a classification
of the lands would be unnecessary, and
work at this time would be wasted. But
before any reserve Is created, the lands
included within the limits of the pend
lnc withdrawal -will be carefully class
fled, to show vacant public lands, all
classes of entries, and lands that have
passed from the Government under
grants, to the state or to roads, or in
Undue Haste la the Matter.
A careful and unprejudiced study of
the manner in which the vast withdrawals
have been made In Oregon leads to the
conclusion that there has been undue
haste, that there has been too little
preliminary study of the great problems
Involved; that there has been too scant
knowledge of the actual condition of lands
affected. In some instances, there has
been ample Justification ror making tem
porary withdrawals, but In few instances
has there been warrant for withdrawing
such large areas as now stand segregat
ed from the public domain. Too much
reliance often has been placed on recom
mendations of men whose judgment has
not been the best. These men are, for
the most part, representatives of the Bu
reau of Forestry. They pride themselves
on their knowledge of all problems per
taining to the forests, and are it must be
.said Jn truth, and frankly Inclined to be
lieve that their knowledge Is superior to
that of other men.
Foresters Lack Practicability,
Granted that this Is so, some of "ihese
foresters lack practicability; they are,
like most theorists, narrow in their view,
seeing only one side to the question. They
have not stopped to consider that other
Interests than those of the lumberman and
the Irrigator are Involved. They do not
duly regard the Interests of the stock
men, and In this they gravely err. Pro
ceeding on the theory that the future de
velopment of Eastern Oregon depends al
most entirely upon lumbering and agri
culture, the course of the Bureau of For
estry Is amply justified, but this Bureau
has almost. If not totally, Ignored what Is
now and always will be by far the most
important pursuit of the region east of the
There is no Intention to belittle the Im
portance of the Bureau of Forestry, nor to
cast slurs upon its good work, for it Is
doing good work. But the Bureau is
handicapped by being in too great favor
in the present administration. It is really
the pet bureau of therGovernment. It re
ceives liberal appropriations; it is almost
unrestricted, in its field of operations, and
in the extent of its work, but more than
all else, its recommendations are given
more weight than they properly deserve,
The Judgment of representatives of this
bureau is taken In preference to the Judg
ment of more experienced men- in other
lines, and other bureaus are compelled,
to a degree, to yield to the wishes of the
foresters. There Is too little restraint
placed upon the Bureau of Forestry; It is
the "administration's spoiled child."
First 3Iove for Withdrawals.
Three, four and five years ago, when
the Forestry Bureau was unheard of, sev
eral representatives of the oFrestry Dl
vision of the Geological Survey were sent
to the West. During their rambles, some
of them Journeyed through Oregon; hasti
ly. It is true, for they covered long routes
In a single Summer. Upon their return to
Washington, these men wildly recom
mended the creation of numberless for
est reserves throughout the West. They
had obtained little more than a bird's eye
view of the country; they had not deter
mined anything definite as to the nature
or extent of its forests; but had gained
tho Impression that forests here and
there were valuable, and should be pre
served. This was sufficient for them;
their recommendations went on file, or are
supposed to have gone on file. At any
rate, the Interior Department was ad
vised that the Geological Survey deemed
it advisable to create many new forest re
For months and years no attention was
paid to these recommendations. At infre
quent Intervals some of the Interested
parties would endeavor to arouse interest,
but nothing ever came of it. The public
was aroused, however, and wanted to
know something of the proposition further
to segregate the public forests. Repeated
attempts were made to get at the recom
mendatlons of the field parties who had
visited Oregon, and suggested more re
serves. But the records were never ex
posed to public gaze; tho eyes of a news
paper man never rested on the precious
documents. There were many excuses.
but the papers have been effectually con
cealed, up to tho present day. It wasex
plained that the reserves were deemed
necessary to "protect the timber and con
serve the water supply," and that was
held to be sufficient explanation for the
Bureau Begins to Reach Out.
In the meantime, however, the Bureau of
Forestry, in the Department of Agrlcul
ture, was weaned from tho department
proper and secured Independent quarters
elsewhere. With this first break for lib
erty the bureau began to swell, to en
large Its force, to extend its labors, and
gradually to work Itself into the National
forest reserve problem, from which it had
previously been excluded.
It began to take a hand In recommend
ing new reserves. Its representatives set
to work to discover areas that had been
overlooked by the Geological Survey for
esters, mere laymen, in comparison, and
their industry is apparent, from glancing
at the map. They, almost without excep
tlon, recommended the withdrawal of
lands that had been mentioned by the
Geological Survey, but thought these areas
should be enlarged. They also recom
mended withdrawals of lands tthat had
been overlooked by the survey.
Having the entire confidence of the
President and great faith in his corps of
college-bred experts In the field, Chief For
ester Pinchot did not hesitate to lay his
views before Secretary Hitchcock, and the
Secretary! "who had been literally forced
to swallow the new Pinchot forestry pol
icy, that was early adopted by the pres
ent Administration, had nothing left toi
do but order withdrawals as they were
recommended. It has practically come
about that the recommendation of a field
representative of the Bureau of Forestry
can dictate what public lands shall, ba
withdrawn from entry, and what lands
may be left to the stockmen and the lum
bermen. Western. Mea All Oppose Policy.
This Is a fair portrayal of the situation
that exists In Washington today. Its cor
rectness will be testified to by any Senator
from a Western State in which there are
forest reserves or forestry withdrawals.

Senior Senator From "Washington.

SPOKANE, Wash., Sept, 6. (Special.)
That Senator Addison G. Foster left Spo

was tho principal feature of the arrival
in Spokane of the Congressional delega
tion, which returned over the Spokane
Falls & Northern from its trip up tho
Upper Columbia River. The positive state
ment from Tacoma that State Senator
Edward S. Hamilton will within a week
announce his candidacy for Senator Fos
ter's seat was the reason for the evident
disquietude of the senior Senator.
Senator Foster was manifestly impa
tient to get away. His friends pressed
him to stay over until the night Northern
Pacific train, but ho declined and left at
8 o'clock on the Great Northern, which,
through its connection with tho interurban
at Seattle, will landhim In Tacoma about
an hour earlier than the Northern Pacific
would. Foster said:
"I don't know' anything about Senator
Hamilton's purported candidacy other than
what I have seen in the newspapers.

a good friend of his. He was chairman of
our delegation, you remember, when

his friends would like to see him elected
to the United States Senate, but what sub
stantial basis thero is to the talk that ho
is a candidate I don't know, and won't
know until I get to Tacoma."
Quite a bunch of politicians snatched a
hurried bite between trains In a private
room at the Spokane Hotel last night
The list included Senator Fester, Con
gressman Jones, Hal J. Cole, Postmaster
Hartson, Arthur J. Shaw, E. B. Hyde and
Private Secretary Sammons. Senator An
keny was in the hotel, but he did not eat
dinner with the others.
The dinner party at the hotel did not
last long, because of Senator Foster's
anxiety to catch the Great Northern train.
To add eplce to the occasion, D. T. Ham's
name was bandied around among he
crowd as a Gubernatorial possibility.
A few local politicians anxious to pre
vent the capture of Spokane County by
Governor McBiide have been mentioning
Mr. Hams name for several days, and
there was some desultory talk about it
among the visitors last night.
