SALEtf. Or, Dec. 10. SpecUl.) An
other cam In which an Eastern state Is
trying to shift on Oregon the burden of
csrlng for an Insane patient, who does
not rightfully belong here, has) come to
th attention of Dr. R. EL Le Stelner.

Is any opportunity to escape doing so.
Th can Just cited by Dr. Stelner arises
through a New York law that foreblds
the state hospitals there from accepting
permanent patients who are not residents
of the state- Dr. Stelner received a
letter a few days ago from Dr. William
B. Sylvester, of the New York Stat Com
mission In LAinacy. advlnng hlrn that

'We find that this patient had a steam-
hip ttrket for his native heme In
Hungary." ssys Dr. Sylvester, "but as his
condition Is such that he is unable to
undertake the trip unattended, he cannot
be returned to his native land. Owing to
the fact that he was a patient In your In
stitution for a long period, we would
kindly ask If you will accept the patient
at your hofltal. as he la not a resident
of this slate and therefore cannot b
retained In one of our hospital.'
Dr. Stelner wrote In r.-ply that the
long period" of which the New York
physician spoke was from April M. 1910,
to September XT. 1910. during which Feld
hoffer was an tnmat of the asylum at

that ha was In very good condition to

way to Germany." wrote Dr. Stelner.
Your letter saying his commitment to

had had a relapse in transit, which I
suppose was probably due to some seduc

This man was not a citizen of Ore

little over one month when be was com

of Oregon Is under no obligation what
ever to assume the care of this Individual

'You say that he could not be retained
In one of your state hospitals as he Is

A man from a foreign country, who

army of the land of his birth, even If
he takes out citizenship papers In the

The point was raised by a German
resident of Washington. He wants to
return home for a visit, but Is afraid
if he does he will be drafted into the

of bis being a deserted the united

MEDFORD. Or.. Dec. 10. (Special.)
Many millions of feet of excellent
yellow pine timber In the Crater .Lake
National forest reserve Is deteriorating
from old age.
This Is the testimony of many of the
lumbermen. The fact that much tim
ber Is ripe and should be cut is also ad
mitted by M. L. Erlckson, the forest
supervisor stationed at Medford: by
District Forester Cecil. Deputy District
Forester Buck and other officials of
the forest service, who have visited the
region recently.
The forest men explain, however,
that the standing cruise is not being
diminished as the young trees are
growing to fill the places of the deca
dent ones. Such large timber owners
as George F. King and Edgar Hafer.
however, state that the young and the
decaying trees are the only ones that
have been damaged by the fire which
swept through the district last Sum
mer. Some Sales Made.
The forest department have. In a
small way, endeavored to put the ma
ture timber to some use rather than
allow It to rot. During the last two
years they have sold 25.000.000 feet
of timber. Last month they advertised
the sale of 146.000 feet. But there are
many millions of feet more that gov
ernment red tape and lack of pur
chasers Is allowing to rot. Some parts
of the reserve are difficult of access.
To this drawback the Government adds
that of picking out the mature trees
scattered through the forest. These
two difficulties together keep away the

gon that did damage to grown solid
yellow pine trees. The district, thus
affected was around the South Fork of
the Rogue River near the town of
Prospect, where a high wind produced
a bad fire. Here, according to Govern
ment statistics, 45 per cent of the for
est was killed.
Much of this damased area consists
of private holdings outside of the Na
tional forest. In this district, the
Rogue River Lumber Company, of
which A. E. Meserve of Portland Is a
member, has large holdings. The com
pany owns about 40.000.000 feet or
fire-killed timber and the Government
has 60.000.000 feet In like condition ad
joining. Of the timber burnt over,
fortunately this is the easiest of ac
cess as a railroad could be extended
to It from the Pacific & Eastern ter
minal at Butte Falls, a distance of not
over 10 miles.
Government Awaits Action.
Government officials are hoping that
th company will take hold of the
proposition, large as It Is. and use the
damaged timber, all of which Is of fine
quality. If more timber were needed
by the company. Supervisor Erlckson
says that the Government would sell
adjoining green timber, most of which
Is mature and should be used.'
The largest area burnt by one fire
was that which devastated the Red
Blanket country around Mount Mc
Loughlln on the summit of the Cas
cades. Fifty square miles of country
was burned over, but small damage
resulted, as most of the burnt area was
