Chilean Engineer Abandon Scheme
ol Building Second Waterway
Facstatlva; Colombia, Nor. IS.
Arturo UnUurrags, tho Chilean cngt-
neer, baa definitely determined to abau
don Ms efforts to obtain from the Co
lombia government a concession for his
canal project, owing o the fear enter
talned by Colombia of reprisals on the
part of the United States. Undurra
ga'a plan was to construct a rival to
the Panama canal.
In furtherance of his plan for a
canal, Undurraga sought to Induce con
gressmen and members of tho diplo
matic corps to Inspect the route at his
expense, but all declined.
A Colombian official has stated that
it appeared inopportune to grant a con
cession to the Chileans before the
adoption of the treaty defining the
boundary between Panama and Co
lombia. When this matter had been settled,
he added, tho government probably
would grant tho concessions. Letters
exhibited here indicate the willingness
of German and British capitalists to
build a commercial and non-political
canal that could not be closed in event
Unless the concession is granted it Is
feared discontent fomenting at Antio
quia and Cauea will culminate in a re
vival of threats of secession.
Undurraga will sail on November 27
for England by way of New York.,
The president and congress have ap
pointed a commission to investigate tho
separation of Panama from Colombia.
Francisco de Bonis, recently ap
pointed minister to the United States,
sailed for that country today.
PLATINUM FOUND IN SAND.
Discovery Will Mean Much to Coast
Misers ln Small Way.
Los Angeles, Nor. 18. Davis T.
Day, United States geological director
of government petroleum work on the
Pacific coast, left here tonight to make
a report to the government in Wash
ington. Mr. Day alio is in charge of
the research work in connection with
platinum mining on the coast.
For several months be has conducted
an investigation of tho beach sands
from Capo Flattery to Lompoc Before
leaving tonight he said;
"I believe that when the facts con
cerning the platinum- mining Industry
as we have found them are known, a
great stimulus will bo given.
"Platinum can be taken from the
sands of this coast in paying quantities
by a simple mechanical process at lit
tle expense. While the industry is not
likely to attract the attention of the
big corporations, it will prove of im
mense interest to the miner in a small
CASE CENTURY OLD ENDS.
Colorado Family Beneficiaries of Vast
Pueblo, Colo., Nor. 18. After being
in controversy for over 100 years, an
estate in England which may repre
sent several million dollars, will revert

REFORESTATION IS EASY.
Qxe)Jvll from tat rk J
I am told that Germany spends several
million marks annually to raise trees,
and receives annually mora than twlco I
as ruuca money irom (do saio 01 uniuvr
than sho expends.
I would also advocate tho imposing
upon all logged off lands a basio tax,00 Ne ?-00 M,ul8 ln Whitman
sufficiently high to insuro their revert
ing naturally to the stato for a reason
able compensation, tho lands to bo util
ised in raising trees for futro genera
tions; tho levying of this tax to bo sus
pended in caso private owners should
wish to set nsido their loggod-off lands
for tho purpose of raising timber under
state regulations; this timber to pay a
cutting tax at tho time it is cut.
The details of such a tax and tho set
ting asida of logged oil lands for tho
raising of timber by private owners are
matters that can bo worked out; tho in
terests of the people protected; the rev
enue which the timber and lumber in
tcrests should rightfully pay the state
provided, but collected in such a inau
ner as will help conserve our forosts in
stead of encouraging owners to cut and
wasto them, as under our present system
of taxation. I am firmly of the opinion
that if our forests are to bo conserved
and new forests grown, tho first step
necessary is the revision or evolutlonlx
ing of our system of taxation.

My conclusions regarding the growth
of timber are as follows:
Bed fir will attain an average diam
eter of 10 to 18 inches in 40 years; hem
lock a diameter of 18 to 20 inches in the
same length of time. The growth of
the timber examined by me is about (wo
inches in diameter during the past 10
years for trees 40 to CO years old. and
one inch in diameter for trees 125 to
250 years old. The growth on trees 400
years old is bard to read without a
glass. The Timberman,
