ington, July 1 "Go Into the Chugach
forest reserve and cut all the timber
you need for the construction of the
Government railroad in Alaska," said
the Forest Service to Secretary Lane,
'when the latter broached the Forester
for the necessary permit, "but." added
the Forester, "you must pay us the
market price for all the .timber you
When Secretary Lane found himself
tp against the proposition of the Gov
ernment's buying its own timber to
tuild its own railroad, thereby threat
ening to deplete the appropriation
made by Congress, he proceeded to cog
itate, and in due time evolved a
scheme whereby he circumvented the
Forest Service and got all the timber
he and the Alaska Railroad Commis
sion will require, for the mere cost of
Timber Reserve Created.
The Forest Service having held that
not even the Government can cut tim
ber from a forest reserve without pay
ing for it. Secretary Lane proceeded
to create a vast "timber reserve" north
.of the Chdgach forest reserve, and
along the. line of the proposed Govern
ment railroad, and this "timber re
serve," created by-the Interior Depart
ment, is under the exclusive jurisdic
tion of the Interior Department, and is
to be used under the direction of Sec
The Forest Service has no jurisdic
tion and cannot interfere. Incidentally,
tne Alaska Railroad Commission will
have. In this reserve, all the timber it
will require, and the mature timber in
the Chugach forest reserve will con
tinue to die of old age. This is the
first known instance in which the
Government has been thwarted in one
of its own policies by the ultra-conservation
practiced by the Forest Service.
Secretary's Purpose Explained.
The purpose of the "timber reserve"
created by Secretary Lane is explained
by the following statement Issued by
the Interior Department:
"The purpose of the reservation is
to prevent the timber needed for the
construction of the Government rail
road and its branches in Alaska from
falling Into possession of individuals
or corporations, in which event it
would be necessary for the Govern
ment to purchase tmber which it once
owned. It is not the intention of the
Government, however, to make any
unnecessary restrictions which will
tend to retard the development of the
territory of Alaska along the line of
the railroad or its branches and in the
withdrawal order the interests of the
public have been conserved In every
way possible. Only the timber on the
land, not the land Itself, has been re
served. "The land is still subject to location,
settlement or entry under the public
land laws, and It Is provided within
the withdrawal order that the Secre
tary of the Interior may permit eetr
tiers and those engaged in business in
the locality to obtain such timber as
they require for their own uses, pro
vided ,that the timber Is not needed
for the construction of the. railroad.
"It is the intention of the Govern
ment while conserving so much of its
resources as it may need for its own
use. at the same time to co-operate
with the public in permitting the de
velopment of that part of the Terri
tory of Alaska, for the benefit of which
the railroad is being constructed."
DEATH CAMAS DESCRIBED
Department of Agriculture Issues
' Bulletin on Poison Weed.
The Department of Agriculture has
Just issued a bulletin (No. 125) on
"Zygadenus. or Death Camas." This
bulletin will doubtless be of interest
to those who have recently suffered
losses due to the poisoning of their
stock, caused by the eating of this
According to this publication, the
death camas is found throughout the
United States and as far north as
Alaska; but it is most abundant from
the Rocky Mountains west to the Pa
cific Ocean. The plant may grow as
more or less scattered individuals, but
it is sometimes massed together in
large areas. In appearance it is grass
like, growing from a root stock or bulb
which looks like an onion; while the
flowers are greenish-white or yellow
and somewhat' resemble mignonette.
In the Northwest the plant is known
by numerous common names, such as
lobelia, soap plant, alkali grass, water
lily, wild onion, hog's potato, squirrel
lood. poison sego, etc.
Numerous experiments have been
made to discover a remedy for poison
ing of sheep caused by eating this
plant, but no satisfactory or practical
medical remedy has been found. To
prevent losses. It is Important to rec
ognize the plant and avoid camping
stock on it at any time, or grazing on
it when the animals are hungry. If
the animals become sick, they should
be kept quiet, and under this treatment
many will recover.
