ftffortn At Control
Some of tho private ownors of the
region have attomptod to. protect
their remaining tlmbor by destroying
the insects on their own lands. Thcso
efforts havo not been successful be
cause of tho renewod Attacks by
.beetles from adjacont lands!,The on
tire. 'region must be regarded as a
unit. If tho Insects are to be combat
ed oueccBsfiilty, tho action taken
,must bo with tho vlow of cleansing
, all er a large part of the unit In one
" general plan. '
The leelslaturo of tho stato of Ore
'gon recognizing this raonnce and hav
ing beforo It tho experience of other
opldomics of tree killing Insects, has
pawed a bill which provides that In
sect infestations of this character
may be declared to bo a public nuis
ance and that tho ownors of tho land
on .which tho Infostod tlmbor stnnds
must abate tho nuisance or the stato
will do It at tho owners' oxpenso.
, This legislation Is ineffective whore
Oovernmcnt land Is Involved since
the Stato can not require tho Federal
Oovernmcnt to pay.
Are Covered by KpMemlc
The opldomlc covers about 260,
000 acres In the Klamath Indian re
servation, 100,000 acres of the re
vested Oregon and California grant
lands in. Oorgon as -well aa 26,000
acres of'unapproprlatcd public land
and 286,000 acres of govornment

sides of tho "state jllnoTho prlvato
owners and tho Stato of Oregon are
both, helpless In spite of, ,tbo Stato
legislation unless the federal govern
ment will .do. Its share in, protecting
tho ten billion foot of pine timber,
worth at least; thirty million dollars,
which Is tho main resource of the re
gion. Activity of Prlvato Owner
In April, the private owners of tim
ber In. the. region called a meeting lit
Klamath Falls In which tho" situation
was discussed. Besides the. owners of
prlvato land tho mooting was attend
ed by representatives of the Indian
offlco of tho, department of the inter
ior, the buroau of entomology and
tho forest service of the department
of agrlculturo, tho California fores
try eommlttoo, the, Oregon State For
ester's office, the Oregon agricultural
college and tho :Western Forestry
and conservation association. At tho
meeting it developed that the private
owners were anxious to combat the
Insoct Infestation in accordance with
the Oregon Law or voluntarily, but
they felt that' it was reasonable and
just that the United States as an
owner of a large part of the Infested
unit should cloan its own lands both
for Its own protection and to. aid in
rppovlng, tho menaco that now
threatens, tho ..timber, of tho..ontlro
roglon. Tho lands aro so Intermingled
that It Is almost nseless for any prl
vato owner or all of them combined
to act Unicoi the. Federal government
does Its sharo.
Hfftimatod Ooxt of Control,
It Is estimated by the department
that the work of cloanlng tho Oov
ornmont lands would cost approxi
mately $'1CO,000 and that it will ro
qulro a similar amount to romovo
the Infestation from tho prlvatoly
ownoj lands. Tho" department fcoli
.that tho Govornment should under
take Its obligation In removing this
menaco In order to protoct Its own
lands as well as to bo Just to the
ownors of Intcrmlnglod lands. Unions
tho Work of combating this Infesta
tion Is hogun at an early date tho
insects will spread over a much
greater territory,, will causo .mucin
moro damnrco to adjacont tlmbor and
will bo moro difficult to suppress.

After many years of endeavor to
gain tho oar of tho government, tho
Indians at last havo secured per
mission of congress, through the ef
forts of Congressman Slnnot, to in
stitute suit In tho United States
court of claims.
Their cholco of attorneys, onom
nnd Irwin of this city, and Daniel
B. Henderson of Washington, has
been approved by Charles Burke,
new commissioner of Indian affairs,
and by tho interior department.
Now remains but the formal signing
and ratification of tho contract with
the lawyers, says Mr. Onelll, and
tho suit, which involves claims ag
gregating from $10,000,000 to $15,
000,000, depending upon tho esti
mates por acre and of tho timber
value, will bo launched,
The Indians claim that when tho
treaty was signed In 1865, after
much, council between tho federal
commissioners and chiefs, and care
ful inspection of tho land, the area
allotted to the Indians was marked
by natural raonumonte, such, as
mountains, .streams, trees and prom
inent rocics. ( wnen me surveyors
