Teachers' Cert Ideates.
Senator Henry of Collax made a fight for
his bill, S. F. 3S4, repealing that portion of
the law throwing upon the state superin
tendent the power to say what schools and
colleges pf the state are entitled to grant
state and life teachers' certificates. -Mr.
Henry thought the law a bad one, as In his
experience as county superintendent many
teachers secured certificates through at
tendance at schools when they had repeat
edly failed to secure them through the reg
ular examinations of the county which he
had conducted. The senate was evenly di
vided on a motion to postpone and the lieu
tenant governor voted placing the bill on
general file. .
Had Place in Charter.
City Treasurer Furay of Omaha was in
Lincoln today to point out to the Douglas
county delegation the futility of enacting a
provision In the South Omaha charter that
makes-a branch of the ohly government.
He declared that the operation would ne
cessitate the county seal being In two places
at the same time and would prevent the
operation of abstracters and might under
certain conditions permit the sale of prop
erty for taxes In one place when the same
had been paid In another. He regarded the
provision of the bill as entirely Imprac
ticable. No Inqalaltlon on Banks.
After a hard fight on the floor of the
house the bill by Fries of Howard to pro
vide that assessors may have the right to
enter a bank and check up Its books In
order to make an assessment on the de
posits was killed. Clark and Wilson-' of
Polk and Brown of Lancaster led the fight
against the bill, while Judge Shoemaker
delivered an ardent speech In opposition.
NeUleton of Clay, Fries of Howard and
others spoke for It.
This gave the Douglas county members
a myt her chance to show off and the bet
was not overlooked by Howard. Shoemaker
was making one of his best efforts of the
session, when he was lnturrupted by How
ard, who had gradually arisen In his seat
until he was almost on tip toe.
"May I ask yes a question?" he shouted.
"Sure," answered Shoemaker.
"Yes are making a spach fur the bankers
and the rich men. Yes are not fighting fur
the poor man at all."
"You don't know what you are talking
about." hotly retorted this democratic legls
laturu's moat widely advertised constitu
tional lawyer as he proceeded. '
Connolly came In just as the vote was be
ing taken and made this remark to his
"I don't know anything about the bill."
"Ah. yes knows the bill Is all right, all
right," yelled Jerry.
In the committee of the whole the bill
was recommended for passage, but upon a
roll call not to concur In the .report of tha
committee It was killed. , ,.

This Is the reault of the adoption of the

Over the discussion of these bills Mr.
Stoeeker of Douglas county, and bis col
league Mr. Shoemaker, got into the lime
light. Mr. Sloecker pointed out that the
Henry bill was already 011 the statute
books or words to that effect, and soma In
quisitive member Insisted on asking the
gentleman who was elected to represent
Douglas county to point out tha statute.
Like a ghost Judge Shoemaker glided up
to ihe side of Mr. Stoaoker.
"1 will leave it to my attorney here, gen
tlemen." modestly replied tha magnate-like
looking cigar man. And Judge Shoemaker
proceeded to read law until the house got
ready to recommend the bill for passage.
Matardar Holiday Lost.

was cut; 888,384 M,. B. F. of timber was
sold; 24.137 graslng permits, 8,141 special
use permits, and 80.377 free use permits
were Issued. The total number of permits
Issued to June 80, 1W8, was 163,068.
"Of the total amount received from those
who received direct benefits from the use
trtthe varied resources of the national
forests of Colorado last year, 25 per cent
of 159.761.28 was turned over to the state to
be used In the development and main
tenance of roads and the publlo school
Advaatasre ta Colorado.
"The amount which Colorado receives
each year for this purpose will Increase
as tbe forests reach a higher and higher
state of development and the best possible
use Is made of every resource. During the
last fiscal year the total amount of busi
ness transacted by the forest service In
cressed more than 4 per cent over that of
the previous year, and It was handled with
but 20 per cent Increase In money avail
able. A knowledge of such facts as these
should sot at rest once and forever, the
claim sometimes and so mlstakably made,
that the national forests ars closed
against development. ,
"In the Immense amount of business
trsnsacted over so large an area, It was
Inevitable that mistakes should be made.
I do not doubt that In Isolated cases In
justice hss been dope, and wherever such
Injustice has been, brought to my attention.
It has been corrected.' The mistakes made
are lnBlgnlflcant, amount and Importance
compared to the .good, accomplished. It
must be remembered, that Injustice must be
avoided as much to the government as to
the users of the national forests, and that
If there were no attempt on the part of dis
honest men to get possession of the prop
erty of the people In ways contrsry to law.
the men who are responsible for taking
care of that property would not be obliged
to take the precautions to protect It which
are now absolutely necessary.
X AaoloaHea for Work.
"If by mistake Injustice has been done
to any man, It will be corrected, so far ss
I have the power. But remember two
things; In the first place, the forest service
Is not responsible for the law as it exists
or for the rulings of the Department of the
Interior, but It Is governed both by the
law and by these rulings, with both. In
most particulars. It Is In hearty accord,
but if either Is wrong. It Isn't within the
authority of the" forest service to correct
It. Secondly, during the last fiscal year,
timber worth more than $8,000,080 standing
on invalid mining clslms was saved to the
people of the United Slates by the examina
tions of mining claims. The forest service
has no apologies to make for having de
feated the men who tried to get this timber
under color of the mining laws. Where
similar Illegal attempts are 'made in the
future, It proposes to defeat them It If can.
In every single Instance, whether the at
tempt Is to take the claim for timber, for
power, or for any other than legitimate
mining purposes. On ths other hand It
will do Its best to help tbe legitimate pros
pectors snd miners and to give them ad
vantages and protctlon which they do not
enjoy on lands outside the national forests.
Mr. Plnchot said that he was determined
not to question the validity of any mining
claim apparently held In good faith for
mining purpose, and not adverse to the
Interests of the government, no matter
whether or not It probably contains a pay
ing amount of minerals.
. O a poult Ion Indicates Valae.
"In other words." he said, "the benefit
of every reasonable doubt Is to be given
to the miner. There is a certain kind
of opposition to the national forests
which cannot and ought not to be
removed. If there ware no opposi
tion whatever to tbe forest ser
vice. It would be the clearest possible In
ill' 1 tloiTTliat ths service Is not doing ',ts
duty. In the exercise of the duty Imposed
upon It. the service haa tlms and again
prevented rertain men or certain Interests
frem get:ing th rgs they wanted, but engii'
not to heve. snd from these men and these
Interests the bitterest and most persistent
part of the opposition haa ateadily oome.
Such Interests are found, for example. In
some of the great sheepmen who object
to making room for the small asttler, or
to such reduction on the number of their
stock as is necesssry to protect the Irriga
tion interests and from men who are en
gaged in the formation .of a great water
power trust. For the opposition Is hss ex
cited from these Interests, the forest ser
vice has no apologies whatever to make.
It proposes -to stand resolutely by the
policy of preferring to hejp the small
man make a living than to help the large
man make a profit, and It will not aban
don the policy of government control of ths
water power to prevent monopoly. If the
attitude of the service In these matters
leads to Irritation and denunciation, then
let tha opponents of the service make the
most of them. Neither Is this nor In any
other salutsry policy adopted and main
tained by the forest . servk-e will there be
a single backward step."
