Wyoming as Not loss than f on the' Efobaek canyon road thru the national .forest into (the national not' icss than on- the road thru the reserve from Jackson to park, and up to OH the road from Cody thru the national forest to the park line. It is believed these amounts will enable the Forest service 'to open up roads affording automobile traffic. .These sums are in addi- tyiose the senator was able to get in the agricultural apropria- 'tion for the Jackson road, the Cody road and per mile for work on roads in the park. Senator Warren has the credit for securing the first appropriation's for road work in the national park for the purpose of making these highways available for auto travel, and expect to per- sist in his efforts until these ve- hicles are admitted on the fmme baste as all other vehicles. In ad- dition .to the above amounts to bo ex- pended on road work in Wyoming, the state's sharej of the forest re- serve proceeds will amount to over Clifford Pinchot Returns Wyoming people who any d.onbts as to the intentions of the Progressive party in the matter of .so-called conservation will bo in- terested in tlio announcement of Gifford Knchot upon his return from Chicago, thru the Washington Times, Eoosevolts ofliciiil organ.

Senator Warren has occupied much the mane position in the senate tjhis congress. Altho the senate has been nominally republi- can, a minority of insurgents has made it impossible count, 911 get- ing anything thru on party lines, and ,ijhe weight of the individual nember has counted in that body OB it has iu the house. Never has Senator Warren been ,morp fluc- ;essful in securing recognition for lis state than at tho session just closed, jaa the record will show. He las won out against the opposition, uot because ho was a republican member but because of sheer ability and the knowledge gained by long experience. The Thornton Fortune Some eight weeks ago the Times riuted a letter from A. J. JIc- s'ish, of Wyoming, written to Sheriff Kd.
