Fossil Xematns Are Those Sought for
Yean by Scientist.
Chicago, 111, Nov. 1L The missing
link between reptiles and mammals, for
which scientists hare been searching
since Darwin first pat forth his theory
of evolution, has been discovered in
northwestern Texas by Professor Sam
uel Wendell WUIIston, of tho university
of Chicago, according to an announce
ment undo by tho department of geol
ogy of that university.
Enormous lizard-like fossil remains
hare been unearthed by the university's
expedition, which Dr. Williston la con
ducting, and the scientists declare the
animals lived moro than 13,000,000
years ago. The excavations in whleh
the remains were found are in the re
gion north ef the Wlehlta river. The
fossils were burled in a clay toll of
what wa once a river delta.
rOtTRTEEN ARE KILLED.
Britiih Columbia Electric Trains Crash
at High Speed.
Vancouver. B. C, Nov. 11. Four
teen dead, nine injured, two fatally, is
the net result of a collision between a
runaway freight ear, lumber-laden, and
a crowded internrban passenger coach
on the nrltlsh Columbia Electric Hail
way's lir.4 near here early Wednesday
The dead and Injured aro mostlr
working men. They were bound for
me carbniiding shops at Sew westmin
ter to begin their dally toll.
The passenger car left Vancouver at
5:50 o'clock. Jnst ahead of It was an
eleetrte freight train, the rear ear of
which wa loaded with heavy bridge
limber. At the top of a steep grade
three miles out of the city the lumber
car broke from the freight and started
on a wild run down the hill. The pas
senger train was not more than a quar
ter of a mile behind, but a curve at
the foot of the grade cut off a view of
the track ahead. Just as the passen
ger train rounded this turn the run
away lumber car dashed into view.
Nono of the nassencert escaped unin
jured. Those who were not killed or
maimed when the first crash came
wero caught under the heavy timbers
railing from the freight ear and crushed
to death or suffered broken bones.

REFORESTATION IS EASY.
Observation of Practical Timber
t man Cloaalf Set Forth.
(Itv J. 8. Young, Inmnn-Poulscu Log
glng Co., Kelso, Wash.)
Tho Timbcrmant Aa tho question of
conserving our prescut forests and re
foresting our loggcd-otY. lands 1 now
commanding so much attention, n few
observations from ono who has given
the subject considerable thought unk
not be out of place.
lVoplo who are dealing with statistics
and theories tell us that our forests will
bo practically exhausted in fifty years,
at tho present Tnto of cutting) and as
tho rule of consumption will undoubt
edly Increase, it would seem that our
only hope of a supply for futttro gener
ations Is in growing more trees.
Tho question of conserving aud pro
tecting our forests and raislug another
crop of timber to tako the place of tho
ouo wo aro now cutting and destroying
is purely an economic one, and not irov-
vrned by nendcuilc theories. Hence, wo
will conserve and protect our present
forests, plant aud miso a now crop of
tree on our locgod sir lands just at
soon as wo tftd out that it pays to
The writer remembers doing a lot of
hard work, in early life, along with
many others, destroying our forests that
wo might raise grain and gardon truck
to cat and hay for our stock and whyf
ltccnuso theso things to us bad a value,
aud trees had none. Wo could not eat
them and nobody wanted to buy them.
Hut mark the chango today. The trees
havo a value; our forests aro at the
present timo ono of tho chiof sources of
wealth to tho states along tho Pacifle
Coast, nnd where the condition for ro-
foresting are so favorablo, they can bo
made a source of wealth for all time to
come. Hut as approximately only SO
per cent oi mo (tanning limber ox me
country is in tho hands of the govern
ment and about $0 per cent under pri
vate ownership, tho question of rotor
ostation present some sorious difllcul
ties. What is tho age of our present for
ests? What are tho means to bo em
ployed to retorcst our logged off landsf
What length of timo will ii take! What
benefits can be derived f And then
the great qnestion, Will it payf
To tho first question, I would answer;
"From 100 to -100 years," The na
tional government is at tho present timo
gathering tho data to answer questions
two and three.
The writer has made somo observa
tions regarding tho growth of timber,
which lead hint to bcllovo that growing
timber will pay. 1 havo found trees 13 j
years old 5- inches in diameter on the
stump, that cut over six thousand feet
. ,, . -.-. -- ...
oi mercnaniawo lumber. Mho annual
Krowth showed theso trees wero 1
inches on the stump at 40 years and at
that time should cut IHX) feet of lumber.
From my observations, extending orer
several sections of timber, 100 tree 10
to IS inches in diameter can be crown
on each acre in 40 year and these will
make 30,000 feet of merchantable luiu
bcr; these same tree will cut 72,000
feet at the end of 123 years. The
question is, What will be the value of
this 30,000 feet of timber grown on an
acre in 40 year or the 73,000 feet
grown on an aero in 125 years f I will
hazard, a guess that 30,000 feet of
standing timber will be worth (3 per'
thousand in 40 years, and that an acre'
or land planted to nr trees will earn f i
per year for the entire period, not
counting the small tree that can be
taken out and utilized for wood, posts
and poles during the 40 years,
I do not think there it any use to
which we can put our mountainous,
rocky, logged-off lands that will yield
as much wealth, tboucb to the indi
vidual 40 year is a long time to wait
for a harvest, but not long to the state
To tar mind, the phaso of the ques
tion that presents the most serious diffi
culties is the problem of taxation. I
bare no hesitation in saying that our
present system of taxation, particularly
icgardlng growing timber, ia all wrong.
I do not propose to discuss the matter
as to whether yie timber interests hare
paid too much or too little of tho taxes
In the past or at the present time, but
a system that does not tax the growing
crops o( the farmer, the gardoner, or
the fruit grower, and taxes the growing
erop of timber over and over, and at a
mic iusi win cunuscaio luc enure crop
in av to ro years, when it taxes from
40 to 100 years to raise this crop, is cer
tainly open to valid objection. A a
substitute for our present system of
taxing umucr, based on values, l would
advoate a cutting tax to be paid whoa
the timber is cut; a portion of this tax
to be set aside to ber the expense of
reforestation by the state; and a por
tion to pay tho ox pen so of protecting
our present forests from fire and depre
dation. I shall not attempt in this artlclo to
enter into the details of sueh a sebeme.
I am told on good authority that rais
ing tree by the state or national gov
ernment pays In European countries. If
so, why not here en onr western coast,
where the conditions are almost ideal I
