OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, D. C, May 20. The President will
soon sign a proclamation creating the
Yakima forest reserve in Kittitas and
King counties. "Washington,- embracing
nearly 2600 square miles of land. ,,Thls
reserve will include the summit' and
slopes of the Cascade fountains and
virtually all the timber country between
the "Washington and Rainier reserves.
When this proclamation is signedthere
will be one continuous reserve following
the Cascade Mountains from a point a
few miles north of the Columbia clear to
the British Columbia boundary. -
Running through the Yakima reserve Is
the Northern Pacific land grant, embrac-.
ing alternate sections. These lands will
not be Included, so the forest reserve
will be one immense checkerboard, al
though for practical purposes the entire
area of railroad as well as public lands
will be brought under the care, of the
Government. The Northern Pacific sec
tions will be worth little to the railroad,
when the reserve Is created, and It is
possible some plan will lie devised where
by the Government can purchase or other
wise acquire them in order that the
Yakima reserve may be a compact body.
If any exchange is arranged or If the
Government buys the Northern Pacific
lands, it will be on terms ' approved by
the President. But inasmuch- as the Gov
ernment practically controls the railroad
sections without actually owning them,
it is by no means certain that overtures
will be made to the railroad.

"The supplies to be used in the con

bought in our own country. All this ex

President's message received, that the

like a tempest in a teapot.
"My recollection is that the act of
1902 authorlxes the President to con
struct the Panama canal and acquire

and it especially authorizes him to
enter into the necessary contracts to
accomplish the work. My recollection

"I am under the Impression that the
labor in the construction of the canal
will probably come from the tropics,

America, on account of the climate on

him to Investigate the advisability of
