NO TREES ON FOREST RESERVE
Timber it Absent from Land Set Aiide
by the President.
REPORT OF FORMER GOVERNMENTSERVANT
II Bays Roosevelt Has Been Deceived
Int Relieving the Reservation
A former attache of the government
service who, for obvious reasons, requests
thai his name be not published, recently
returned from the North Platte forest re
serve country In Thomas county, said Fri
day morning at the federal building: .
"I have traversed the entire length of
the North Platte forest reserve, have
crossed It at Intervals In the Interest of
settlers, snd am In a position to say there
Is no timber whatever on that reservation,
the only exception being a few laolawd
trees, ordinarily bo elder about water
tanks, and one or two trees set out years
ago about ranch houses. There is not any
natural timber In the country. This tract
of over 100,000 acres was declared a forest
reserve by proclamation of the president
dsted March 10. 190s, on the basis that
the president had been Informed that' 'the
reservation was covered In part with tim
"The settlers In that locslity were sur
prised that such a statement had been
mad to the president, when the reverse
was true. My Impression Is that the vast
area of land was badly wanted by the
cattlemen In order that they might lease
It for graslng purposes, and I understand
that ntarly every acre of the reserve Is
under lease. Representations have un
doubtedly been made to the president that
there waa abundant timber on these lands.
In the meanwhile efforts sr being made
by these same parties to "tiave parts of
McPhereon, Grant and Hooker counties de
clared forest reserves, when. In fact, there
Is no timber on these lands, scarcely a
plum thicket. The scheme appears to be
to have these lands segregated from public
entry In order that the cattlemen may
lease them under the forest reservation
laws and thus keep homesteaders out.
Settlers are going Into the country now
and are being told that these lands are
about to be made forest reserves and can
not be settled upon. Since the csttlemen
have boen compelled to remove their fences
they are now working the forest reserve
. "With the Dismal River forest reserve
It la different, as there is considerable
timber along the Dismal river, which would
bring that section within the pale of the
forest reservation laws."
