Earnest Appeal For
Shameful Waste of Timber Effect
of Forest3 on Eain-Eall.
Letter from Gen. Brisbin to Sena
rrrom the Chicago Tribune April 12th.
Omaha, ZS"eb., April 4, 1S74.
To P. W. Jltlcheoc!:, United Stales
Senate, Washington, D. C:
MyDeakScxator: I cannot say
when I was more gratified than in
reading the papers tie other day
that the President had made the
preservation of our forests the sub
ject of a special message to Con
gress, and recommended the pa.s
sasje of an act creating a Commis
sioner of Forestry. I doubt if a
wier recommendation has been
made by any President, and I hope
Congress will not adjourn without
acting upon that message. None
but those who have tree-growing,
and the criminal waste of timber, a
careful study, can appreciate the ne
cevdty of legislation on this subject.
"We Have now left untouched,
in the whole United States,
but one really great tract
of timlc-f conMing of about one
half of Washington territory, anil a
third of Oregon. California has,
perhaps, o00,000 acres of fore-.t, one
half of which has been cutaway
within the hut two years; but that
State, aware of the future necessity,
and keenly alive to the depletion of
our forests, has already commenced
the cultivation of the Australia a
tree that grows rapidly aud to great
New York has lost her maple,
walnut, Jiickory, and has now no
considerable forest left, except what
is to be found in her Adirondacks.
The AViscon&in fore-N arc in process
of rapid destruction, no les than
1,030,000,000 feet having been cut in
a single year. Tons of thousands
of loirs are annually raftitl down the
Mississippi to towns in Iowa, where
they are cut into lumber. One
firm, Young & Co., I am told,
have a mill at Clinton, Town, that
runs 200 aws, and three fourths of
all the lumber they cut goes to Kan
sas and Nebraska. In one vear, 1S5,
000,000 feet of Wi-consin logs were
cut in Iowa ; and I predict that, if
the present destruction goes on, in
ten or twelve years at most, not only
the forests of Wisconsin, but Michi
gan and Minnesota, will be swept
away. Only consider for a moment
that 50,000 acres of Wisconsin tim
ber are cut annually to supplj- tho
Kansas and Nebraska market alone.
The Saginaw forests are now practi
cally destroyed : antl, if the North
ern Pacilic railroad should le built,
It will open up and subject to the
ax the Oregon and Washington
territory forest, and then the last
great belt of American tjniber will
be destroyed. Let us at least save,
and use with economy, the magnifi
cent yellow fir trees (many of them
300 feetbigh) that cover this portion
ofour public domain.
The greatest cormorants we
have to contend with will bo
railroads They already use
hundred and sixty millions of
annually, and our railroading
but just begun. Ties have to be re
placed every seven years; antl, when
10,000 miles more of rail have been
laid, it will require all the young
trees in the country to supply the
demand for ties. A tie, as every
one knows, Js made from j'oung
timber,. the trees being only eight to
ten inches in diameter, and few
treos will cut more than two ties.
There can no longer be any doubt
that the rain-fall and wator-aourscs
of a country are greatly affected by
A peach-tree will give oiT 18
pounds, or about 1 gallons, of
moisture every twelve hours. The
evaporation, then, from the earth
through trpes must be immense,
the roots often drawing from under
ground springs, ami throwing oil"
through their branches vast
volurqos of humid air. Especially
Is this true of Kansas and Nebraska,
where, at a depth of sonje 20 feet,
white sand is struck which is so full
of water that, in many places, suo
terraneous streams have been
formed, and arc frequently struck
when boring for shafts for wells.
I think the great currents of air
which leave the Pacific Coast humid
aud warm empty in the snows on
tho Rocky Mountains; and, leaving
the mountatns dry, they sweep over
tho Grent PJains, finding no mois
ture to take up untj they pass over
tbe Missouri and Mis4isppi, whou,
having been recharged, they empty
in Illinois and Wisconsin. In
Wyoming Territory, as we know,
the derth was ajijiost complete; but
in Nebraska, the heavliy-tinibcred
heads of her .streams give some
huniidit, and the olouds empty in
frequent sljowers along tho Loups,
Niobrara, Plattes, Elkhorn, and
Missouri. Those who "have watched
the effect of forests on rain-falls, say
that by commencing at the edgo of
a dry bejt, the forests-, and conse
quent rain-faljs, maj- gradually bo
eztended ncros tho wljojo of the
dry belt So we might comuionoe
here at Omaha, and by gradually
planting trees westward, inerease
tho humidity of the atmos
phere until the required
moisture for rain is reached
all over tho dry plains.
Tho deplorable result of the
loss of timber is now to be
soon all over Europe. The Elbe has
lost 18 percent of Its flow in conse
quence of cutting away of trees
along its banks, exposing its waters
to the hot sun, and consequent in
creased evaporation. The island of
Santa Cruz, in the West Indies,
which, twenty-live years ago, was a
garden of fertility, is now a desert
almost, the result of cutting away
the forests. The theory is that the
dry currents of air are retarded by
foiests, and elevated until a point of
condensation is reached. Radiation
is also prevented, the air cooled,
and the clouds passing over hi
fgrests are rendeied nioic easily con
densed. Electricity isako a great
agent, tho trees being iiesjatively
eharged, and drawing with " great
power the positively charged clouds,
This theory is no longer doubt or
experiment, but positive fact,
demonstrated by experience and
knowledge of the laws that govern
the atmosphere. I know yon agree
with me in these views, and it was
a conviction that they are correct
which led you to framo your great
timber-growing bill, giving every
person 160 acres of the public lands
who would plant and keep In good
order for ten years forty acres of
timber. That law, as amended
at this session of Congress, I
think, Is nearly correct, and does
you great credit as a wise law-giver.
But not only in Europe, but in
America, is the loss of timber
already lamentably felt. Many of
our rivers have lost half their use
fulness for manufacturing purposes.
The Connecticut is now hardly
navigable, and the Kennebec and
Merriniac have shrunk one-fourth.
of its volume, and the Hudson de
clined a sixth. If the Adirondack
wilderness and other forests adjacent
a-e destroyed, I believe it would
render the Hudson wholly uunavi
gable. Perhaps the greatest drain at pres
ent on our timber supply is the
fiiices of the United Statts. This
cormorant is now felt in everyState
of the East, and every year farmers
are becoming more saving of their
timber. It is an astonishinsr fact.
but nevertheless.true, that the fences
have cost more than the lands, and
are to-day the most valuable class
of property in the United States,
except railroads, and real estate in
cities. Our fences are valued.atone
thousand eight hundred millions of
dollars, and it costs ninety-eight
millions to keep them in repairs.
The new State of Illinois alone has
$2,000,000 invested in fences, 60 per
cent of which are boards, post, and
rail, and 40 per cent wire and
hedges. They cost annually 175,
000 for repairs.
In Nebraska, fences have east less
in proportion to the population than
in any other State in the Union, the
excellent herd laws in force here
having lessened the necessity for
fences. These laws should be adop
ted in every State, and farmers
should hedge, and thus utilize the
$1,000,000 or more of dead capital
now invested In fences in each
Incredible as it may seem, forests
are still felled and burned for tho
purpose of bringing the land under
cultivation. From 18G0 to 1870, no
less than twelve million acres of
forest were cut, the timber logged,
and burned on the ground, so tho
laud could be farmed The annual
decrease of forests by logging and
burning, I am told, is still some
2,009,000 acres per year. And,
while we have been doing nothing
to replace our forests, the demand
for lumber in the United States has
increased at tho rate of 25 per cent
each year. There was received at
Chicago in 1871 over 2.500,000,000
feet of lumber, and 10,000 acres of
land were stripped of timber to
supply that great city with fuel.
I cannot say with certainty what
is just our annual decrease of fores,
but it ii not far from 8,000,000 acres,
as against 10,000 acres of now forest
planted. This is truly alarminp,
and certainly it was high time for
some one to call the attention of
Congress to the subject of forestry.
Your excellent bill to provide for
the growing of new forests will do
much to save us from a timber
dearth; but we must, nevertheless,
take the best care we can of our old
forests, and make them last as long
as. possible. As the father of tho
new forest bill, I thought you the
most proper person to bring forward
a timber-savintr law, and I write
that you will do so at your earliest
convenience, and press it to a vote
the present season. You will no
doubt find able minds to second you,
for I feel sure such thinking men as
Carpenter, Conkling, Cameron,
Morton, Chandler, and Logan, in
tho Senate, and Kelley, Dawes,
Blaine, Myers, Butler, Negley,
O'Neill, and others, in the Houso,
will recognize the necessity of pre
serving what forests our vandal
fathers have left us.
Very truly, j-ours, fct,
James S. Brisuix.

Tbe week bas opened with fully
determined spring weather, and its
effect upon trade, both wholesale
and retail, is very perceptible.
Business with the wholesale
houses is decidedly active, and the
increased demand for dry goods and
groceries at prices well maintained,
show a healthy and active market.
Sales and shipments of lumber by

The strong demand for agricul
