In tho plno beetle going to triumph)

aclencoT In It going to wlpo out tha
great plno forenti of the went, defeat
the so-called conservation dreama of
thn fantastical IdeallntT Is It going
to continue, with ever Increaalog
apned, to rob the people of this
county and ittate of millions of dol
lars, make pauptm of those who are
today rich and break some of the big
bent timber owners of this district?
Tvday It looks an If esch question Is
to be annwored In the uftlrmative.
Awakoned to the fact that Imme
diate stops must ho taken to control I
tho ravagen of the beetle, nome of, tho'
lament timber Interests undertook!
tho tank of eradicating the pest,
when It was suddenly discovered that
It was too big a Job for them. Ap

powerless to do jnthlng, becauso of(
Insufficient funds Thn federal gov-
liniment was turned to with a confi
dence that ber relief would bo forth
coming through thu forest service,
when it was discovered nothing could
lie d lie becaunu thuro was no appro
priation. In tho meantime 'the Long-Hell
company was doing what little It
could. Just cunt of Ilray this com-i
puny tins been carr)lng on export-J
ments lu nn effort to control thei
heotlu. For the purpose of seeing I
what was being accomplished, thei
methods followed and aid In tho work.)
by way of suggestion a party of menl.
Interested gathered at tho point of.
operation this wi-ok. In tbo party
wore Donald Ilruce, of the division of
forestry of the University of Califor
nia, V. C. Hodge, forester for tho
California forest committee, Paul 0.
Iteillngton, forvstor for district No. S,,
II A. .McAllantnr, land commissioner
for the Southern Pacific Ilallroadj
company, and Jack Kimball of the
We)erhaeuer Timber company. I
In comparing notes at this confer
ence It was discovered that tho fight
is hopeless unless tbo fcdoral govern
ment steps in, for the forest reserves!
nro Just breeding places for tho
beetle, from which It can ccntlnuo to i
go forth nnd attack tho timber In
private holdings and defeat every
plan of control. Hither tho forest
service, must do something right now
or In n fuw years there will bo no
need for it, as the spread of the
biietlu is so rapid and the Increase so
groat that but a short time longer
and It will be beyond control.
Whether or not the work of the
Long-Dell company will point out a
method of control remains to be seen.
It it falls, as have all other efforts,
then aometblng else must be tried
and It la In thla delay that Ilea the
great danger to the timber Industry
of this county. The federal govern
ment must come in or the pine for
ests under Its control will be de
stroyed. Mr. aad Mrs. B. W. Gregory, who
bare been making their home on
their ranch In Malln, have returned
