to the question of government ownership

shown that the only relief from railroad

Defense of Land Withdrawals.
Glfford Plnchot, chief of the forest ser
vice, today approved a rough draft of a
report to the secretary ef agriculture re
lating to the 4,000,000 acres of land In In
dian territory, whose withdrawal for for
est reserve purposes brought about criti
cism of the sercetaries of the Interior and
agriculture by a senate committee. The re
port will be a defense of the withdrawal of
the lands, which are located In the Choc
taw and Cherokee nations, and will show,
first that the proposed forestry reserve
was asked for primarily by the Indians
themselves; second, that the maintenance
of a forest on the proposed area will fur
nish a much needed continuous supply of
timber and wood for local use and also pre
vent disastrous floods along 1.000 miles of
the Red river In Texas, Arkansas and
Louisiana, where Immense sums are now
expended for levees: third, that the forest
reserve would not take up all the residue
of lands after allotments to the Indians.
The report will further insist that the
secretary of the Interior's action In tem
porarily suspending allotments was ; not
only within his right, but that he would
have been remiss had he done otherwise.
As a result of careful Inspection by the
forestry bureau a .recommendation will be
made to the secretary of agriculture, who
Will undoubtedly transmit it to the secre
tary of the Interior, to the effect that the
area originally withdrawn can be reduced
one-half J)y leaving out ; the part In the
Cherokee nation and all the lands within
twenty miles of the Missouri, Kansas
Texas railway In the Choctaw nation. This
report, which it Is expected the secretary
of the Interior will make public,- will show
that considerably more than half the re
duced area Is valuable- for agriculture and
can be allotted 4o- .abaonear. iutuw , sfter
