A forest Are was ragl" oiet In
Western Washington yesterday, and a
cry for rain has gone np from that
region. If the forest Area begin
already, what may we expect of tbeir
destructive work late in the summer?
It may do no good, yet every news
paper west to the Cascades should
constantly nrge the exercise of care
in starting fires in or near the woo.ls.

At the next regular council inunting
whlcli will occur ou Thursday ove
iil'ig, Juue 18, if it so Imppcns that a
quorum can be brought together, it is
to be sinoerely hoiied that the mem
bers of that body will .do two things
elect two moiWoounollmen and take
some definite aotion ou tho library
matter. If a councilman is so con
stituted that lie thinks the library is
a bad thing, let him volo his lionoat
The matter is before the council and
it Is their business to handle it. The
taxpayers have declared for the
library and considerable exasjsjration
is manifest at the evasive policy
which seems to have been adopted
by tho council.
The latost.soheme for reaching the
North Pole la by submarine boats.
Andre lost his life by trying to fly to
the pole In a balloon and now other
men whose enthusiasm is greater than
their judgment will try to dive to
the pole under the water. The plan
Is to take the bearlugs on the nearest
open wator In the direction it is
wished to go and run to this under
the lee. If no opou water is to be
found, holes .will be blunted through
the Ice with dynamite from bencuth,
rathei dangerous process it ap'iirs
to us. We would not like to lie In
the boat when tho "shots" go ol".
They must rouiMuhor that water hns
do elasticity as air has. In our
opinion, lives cau bo inicrilcd to fur
greater purpose than in these attempts
to reachthe pole.
Recently, forest fires have Imicii
raging fiercely lu New Knghuid and
New York and thousands of dollars
worth of timber and pro)Hrty have
been destroyed. Now York, especially,
is one of the states that havo been
credited with having "adequate" lire
laws. The only tire laws which
American ingenuity hus yet devised
seems to be the creation of penalties
for setting ont fires and tho improve
ment of the law has consisted merely
In Increasing the penalty. This sys
tom of forest "protection" Is a ghirng
failure. The 8an Francisco Call ed
" Sooner or later, ludeed the whole
United Htates must grapple in enrnesl
with ttie problem. Just now It is the
turn of New Kugland to furnish the
object lesaou, but no section w ill cs
cape. One by one tho great forests of
uurin ana sou III sua rast and wist will
go op in smoke unless man's wisdom
devises some meaus of guuidiux
agaiusi man s carelessness.
We had somewhat of an object les
son In Oregon last year. It is a fuel
that the present system of forest pro
tection can have no other result than
forest destruction, for the longer lire
Is kept out of tin wood the more
completely destructive it will be
when H dues come aud the fire cannot
be kept out of the woods forever, li
is impossible. There are too many
ways in which it way gain a start In
the mountains fires are often started
by lightning, miles away from any
human hand. In this mutter, our
law makers stubbornly shut tlicir ever
to history and eiperlcuoo. i0 tlit-v
ever think how Orcgou's inuguiuYt si 1
foivsts grew without uny "protec
tion" w loiterer, or v. hut per ictit of
the trota would now be standing il
the preernt system had been 111 fore,
for the past hundred years.- T!.e In
diaut tired tho woods every summer
aud the early p'ouevrs followed then
example and act fire out wherever il
would bum . ' In this manner the
woods were kept opeu, the under
growth was thinned, fallen tiiulsts,
liuiha, leaves and iufiammuMe matcri
11 were burned and the frispiont tires
did not iujnre the limber in the least,
because tliey did not develop luat
euough to do so. This old system, 01
some modification of It, must U
adopted If the forests are to bo saved
But the present system hns been in
operation so long that it would re
quire a good deal of cure, Jiid;nicni
aud expense tp work the inflammable
material down to a polut where ex
tensive firing woul be safe. It would
need to be done gradually aud care
fully by men who know what tie
are about, and done the proper scusou.
But is the only safe aud sensible way
of protecting the forests.

OUR OPEN AIR CONCERTS
How the Grants Pass Band
Helps to Enliven the Summer.
Ou Friday evening the Grants Pass
baud gave the second of tho series of
midsummer oiien air concerts. Those
concerts are the most enjoyable of the
features of tho summer season and
are continued throughout tho mouths
of June, July and August. This cus
tom has prevailed for a uumlsT ol
years past and is one which the people
of this city would keenly regret to
see discontinued. After the heat of
the summer days the enjoyment of the
music is greatly enhanced by the
pleasure of Is-ing out ill the restful
evening air. Our baud this year is
one of w hich wo may be proud end
the music of iIichu concerts is always
excellent and highly enjoyable.

A PLACER OF STEAMBOAT
Big Proposition Being Developed
by Medford Men.
J. A. Whitman and J. D. Heard of
Medford are ' in control of what
promises to be the biggest placer
mining lirojiosition in -S.i.utheru Ore
gon. The i'ros-rty is located oo
Stevo's Fork of Steamboat and com
prises some 8.HI acres of miuiiit
ground, nearly nil of which prospect
rich from "grass r'Kits to bedrock. "
Some of tlm prnsjioctH obtained tiro sc.
big that it Is bard to believe they
were taken from Jn.it a few puns of
dirt. The property was porchasc.d
from Messrs. Shearer, Ix'wis, Arm
strong and Scott, and the new owners
have already ls eu offered nu advance
of two aud a half times the purchase
prioi. Tho water supply is abntidaiit.
Whitman and Heard will put 20 men
at work at once, and expect to lie
piping within 40 or SO days. The
water supply is snflicient lo run the
year round, except pcrhnjs a few
weeks in the winter when tho water
mny freeze in the ditch. Later a
three-mile, ditch will Is built to cover
the whole projsrty The location of
the property is snch that it cannot
fail to bo almost fabulously rich

PROTECTION Of MINERAL
One of Ihe Moot Pressing Needs,
Writes "Prospector. '
In my last letter I suid that hun
dreds of miners vvilh their families
could make for themselves pretty
homes in the numberless small valleys
of our mountains, if they could llinl
profitable employment near to then
residences. Tills can and will be
found trui) w hen the right men with
pluck, money and exiericiict take
hold of Unit which so surely awaiting
them. Hut, on the other hand, if I lit
timber sharks are permitted to gohhli
up all tho timber land nnd denude our
timbered hills of their ancient grow th
of beauty the country will become
poor, indeed, for it would not 'lake
many years of chopping und sawing
to clear off all the timber which Is of
value to the miner, or to the builder
and our hi 11 (lasturiige wonld bo de
stroyed, mid tho hills would lie de
sorted by the laboring iKipulutiou, and
destroy tlm mining Industry of South
ern Oregon. Let the timlxT sharks
buy up tho hill lands of the county
of Josephine and we will bejilaced
in tho same condition as hundreds,
nay, I should say thousands, ol miners
in California, who are today wcrking
on sufferance or jmying tribute to the
railroad companies to work ou land
which has been obtained by fraud, for
if 1 remember aright, the government
reserved Its right to nil the mineral
lauds when it gave the grants to the
railroad companies, who now own
very much of the ls st land in these
I'liiUd States, both mineral and nou
niineral mid if we do not combine to
check the so called timber mid stone
grabbers, wo may safely say to those
who aro to live here after the present
general inn as iassed away: "my
chldreii, wo were not in thu combine,
although we thought ourselves free ;
the combine held the sack; wo had
but empty isskets. They cornered
us anil bought up the lands. We
din poor, mid you will have lo be do
pcuiluuts o" emgrate to other climes."
1 trust some other of our miu-'l's will
let me hear from them, in your
valuable ias-r. on this subject.

that but uulil very recently was an
attempt made to place telephones in
the underground workings of mines.
However, there nre a number of mines
already equipped, but these aro with
telephones made after their own sug
