Emf for is Protection. Much Good has been accomplished in a Shoft it time. Things which move slowly move surely and that ugh the landowners and lumbermen have been a Long time in Awakening to what was their Best interests any person who has studied the March of events for the past few years can easily understand that great Progress has been made in conserving the Forest interests of our state. Not until 1897 did our legislators begin to Realise the value of our big game and pass acts for the Protection of the same and though six years have passed Siote then and Many amendments have been added to the game Laws not until the adoption of the License act imposing a penalty upon visitors who came to Hunt in Maine did the Public find what everybody has been seeking for a Quarter of a Century a provision which should furnish Money for the employment of an adequate Warden service a service which shall do away with illegal killing for All time. It is hard to say with any attempt to be accurate just when the revival of an interest in practical forestry in Maine had its beginning. Or. Austin Gary made a most valuable Survey for the state during the time when or. Oak was land agent and his Little Book is still a classic. On the whole we Are inclined to Date the new interest from last Winter when commissioner ring lir ought out his report of the Survey of Squaw Mountain township in Pisca Taquis county. This report made by skilled experts irom the department of forestry in Washington was so Clear and was such a practical demonstration of what lumbermen could do with their wild lands and was so forceful an argument to induce owners to use Economy that its results were far reaching and the impetus which the Book gave to the study of practical forestry is just beginning to be Felt. 11 was no vague and suppose Vitious Case conjured up in the mind of a theoretical dreamer. There was the township on the map. There was the Timber growing just As god had planted it so Many feet of every kind to the acre so much fit to Cut now so much ready to Cut in ten or Twenty years from now and so much As Plain rubbish of no use to any one and therefore needing removal at oboe. The Price of every variety was known the cast of cutting and taking to Market was known. Right Chere in one specimen township was the problem All worked out and showing figures. And the estimates and measurements on Squaw Mountain township were gained by methods which any Lumberman May use on any other township in Maine. It was the first practical illustration which Maine people Ever saw of How to conduct lumbering operations so As to secure the most Money to the landowner. Therefore we say this report marked the beginning of a new Era of forestry in Maine. Since then the owners of Timberland have received a few very costly lessons a Forest management and though the teaching has been very expensive to Many later results have shown that the outlay was not wasted. The Forest fires of last May and june demonstrated the value and necessity of having skilled Rire wardens in the Woods during the dry season a every year. Or. Ring has Given figures of the losses entailed in his special report upon this subject. In Pisca Taquis county near Webster Lake a fire broke out on june 2, and when the High Gale of june 3 came on and fanned the embers the flames spread until fully so,000 acres of Woodland were burned Over. The standing growth of marketable Timber on this land was Worth at a lower tim ate fully an acre so in one fire alone the loss was $400,000, or More than enough to hire a full Lorce of wardens for ten years. Other losses nearly As Large run Llie aggregate up nearly into the millions. Yet if there had been a Force of trained wardens available at the time those disastrous fires started much if not All the loss could have been averted. The losses of last june would have been tenfold what they were had not or. Ring commissioned fire wardens and sent them Post Baste into the Woods where they worked with heroic Zeal saving millions of dollars Worth of property from destruction. Since then the wardens have not been Idle. During last september wardens have reported to or. Ring that they discovered and exit wished 27 serious fires which had they been permitted to spread would have run together involving most of the Timberland in Maine in the destruction. In addition to the 27 fires which were Well underway the wardens have put out uncounted Small fires which would have caused great Haan had they not been discovered in season. And All this great saving of property has been paid for by Money appropriated by the legislature for this Purdom in other words the saving effected by the legislation and the vigorous conduct of or. Ring and his wardens have rescued enough Timber from burning to pay for Wirden Aero inc for a Century to conic. And it has All been done inside of a year. In addition to rescuing so great an amount of property from fires the wardens have posted More than 20,000 notices in conspicuous places warning tourists and others As to the danger of setting Forest fires and informing them of the penalty of violating the Laws. The saving in Money through having a coins event Warden service has been wonderful the educational aspect of the work Hac been greater. Having witnessed the a amp ulness of a thorough fire patrol the owners of wild land have Given their unqualified endorsement of the practice and Are enthusiastic Over the results obtained the first year. They have done More than to give their approval of the work for nearly every May who is interested in the conservation of Maine Timberland has come Forward and offered to give freely from his private purse to make the guardianship of the Woods permanent and effective. More than this they have formed a Mutual insurance association for the Protection of Timberland which association shall employ and pay for fire wardens and patrols to be placed under the direction of , who shall say what they Are to do and whither they shall go. Though the movement is yet Young and though no general system has been outlined As yet indications Point to the fact that never again will Maine capitalists be called upon to suffer such losses As were inflicted by the fires of last june truly this a a consummation devoutly to be wished.
