(From Sunday's Statesman,) '
The retort ofthe examination ofhe
Cascade .Range and Ashland Forest
Reserves and Adjacent i : Regions," by
Mr. J. It. Leiberg, now In pressv but
not published. Is a part of the twenty
firs! annual 'report of the United States
flcolog-ical Survey, and Is edited by
Henry Tiannett, Oeographer. -The' re
gion 'discussed In this report Is In
Southern Oregon. It. contains nearly
800 square miles, 4.6TS.360 acres, com
prising th central and upper areas of
Rogue and Klamath-river basins, and
a small part of the water shed of the
Upper South Umpqua river, and Is idl
vHeil into two nearly equal portions by
the main range of the Cascade. The
eastern and western' slopes have many
dissimilar characteristics, the country
dropping down, on the west. In long
rpurs to the valley of Rogue river, and
on the east in steeper declivities t he
Klamath lakes and the great plains
stretching eastward from thera. The
mean elevation Is 8000 feet. Tbe-char-acteref
the Cascade raltge Is volcanic,
thejcones a'ld peaks being of;dlftereht
ages, and extinct crttera abounding
among themi the one containing .the
famous Crater Lake. The Ashland for
est reserve' conilsta of Siskiyou I Park,
or Ashland Butte, nearly 80W feet
above sea level, and contains over 22,
000 acres. The object of this reserve Is
to maintain the volume and purity of
Ashland creek; the water supply of the
town of Ashland. The Siskiyou moun
tain range forms a connecting link be
tween the Coast Range and the Cas
cades. . ....
In this region the same genera"! con
ditions prevail as In the Mouwt Rainier
Reserve. The crest of the range forms
a dividing line between two widely dif
fering sets of orest conditions. Upon
the west, a tth an ample rainfall, . the
forests. are fairly dense, and the; under
growth luxuriant.. Upon the east,
where more arid ' condition .prevail,
the forests are open, with no under
brush. The species differ measurably
on the two sides.' Those on the west
side consist largely, if not" mainly, of
red fir,' while upon the east . side the
forest is largely of yellow pltie. .-Of the
area examined by.Mr. Leiberg, $ per
cent is forested and 3 per cent. not for
ested, , the rioo-forested areas ; lying
mainly In the entrance wel and in the
eastern part of tb area exarolneo The
amount of sawmill Umber found .upon
the forested area is estimated by him
as a little. less than. 20,000 million feet,
in average per acre of the forest land
of feet. Of. the total stand f. tuw-
bar up-oa this area, yellow plae "com
prises 4S per centered fir 33 per cent
white fir per cent; noble fir and sugar
pine each 4 per cent; and the remain
der is of other species. ; West of the
Cascade Range, red fir Is the domlnan
species, affording more than half o
the tota amount of timber, yellow pine
bein next with nearly one-fourth of
the, total; east of the Cascades, on. th
otner hand, yellow pine constitutes 'six
sevenths of all the timber. .
Fires have widely ravaged this re-
. gion. Of the, forested area examined,
Iin round number 1.000.000 acres, Mr.
Leiberg estimates that 2.rT5,0A acres.

in 1 vl mu nre-marsea ' area, wt,ui
