RETURNS TO STATES
National Forest Last Year Brings
to States Handsome
Washington, Jan. 9. Special to the
I Ni:ws Hkrai.o-During the hist fii-cal
year ending Juno 30, the United Stntes
' Forent service issued to settlers in the
; neighborhood of National Forests in
j western st'ites over IM.ODO "fne uau"
I permits, under which the settlers re-
ceivei' iibotit 201,000 cords of lirewrod,
j potts, poles and saw logs, worth $H, 320,
I or about 61 cents per cord in the forest
a low valuation.
j Hi'sidcs thin, the diff event atateB re
ceived for school and road purposes 23
per (tut of the income from the Nation
al Forests amounting last year to
$l7,(ifil. The direct return to the
1 "tares in lieu of taxes on the 17 million
acres, the estimated area of aiipntontt'd
I land in the National Forests, amount
j ing then in the last year to ?fil(!,:-l in
ea-ti ana free use timber. .
In TJ07 the total of "free use" ma
terial and money paid over amounted
to about $2K1,400. The increase
amount given to the states from 10 per
cent to 25 per cent of course is largely
responsible for the large return in 1908,
but even had this percentage not been
charged a good increase would have
been shown, despite the demoralization
of the lumber business caused by the
financial flurry. In fact, this increase
may be looked for up to many times
the present amount as the demand for
timber increases and the forests are
developed more and move.
This is an Easy Test.
