to Its owner" and Incidentally an "equally

findings reported to tha president by Her

tions. In the first Installment of hla long
awaited report on the lumber industry of
the United States. The report waa made
public today by the president sending It to
congress. Th report is effectively sum

submittal. Hla conclusion, In a forecast of
the future, partake of the sensational
"There are many great combinations In

"whose formation la complete. In the lum

now finds In the making a combination

public policy. The concentration already
existing la sufficiently impressive. In
the last twenty years concentration ha
progressed so' that 1K holders, many In
terrelatcd, have practically one half of tha
privately owned timber In the Investigated
area (which contains 80 per cent of the
whole). This formidable process centainly
involves grave future possibilities of Im

ing of timber land far In advance of any
"(3) An enormous Increase In the value
of thla diminishing natural resource, with
great profits to Its owners. Thla value, by
the nature of standing timber, the holder
neither created nor substantially enhanced.
' "These are tho underlying facta of tre
mendous significance to the public welfare.
They ara primarily the results of our public
land policy, long continued. The laws that
represent that policy are still largely opera
tlve. The past history and present status
of our standing timber drove home upon
us tha Imperative necessity of revising our
public policy for the future management
of all our remaining natural resources.
"Only forty years ago at least three
fourths of the timber now standing was
(It is estimated) public-owned. Now about
four-fifths of It Is privately owned. Tha
great bulk of It passed from government to
private hands through (a) enormous rail
road, canal and wagon road grants by th
federal government; (b) direct government
sales in unlimited quantities at 11.25 an
acre; (c) certain public land laws, great
tracts being assembled In spite of the legal
requirement for small holding.
"Such lav. a were wholly Inappropriate
to forest regions; but, though vigorously
condemned by several public representa
tive, they are still largely In force. In
theory they were intended to distribute the
land In small tracts for freeholders; In fact,
they, actually furthered timber concentra
tion In vast holdings.
"The 1.802 largest holders of timber now
own SS, 679,000 acres of land as compared
with a vastly wider distribution of public
lands In nontlmbered. agricultural sections.
"During this Interval, and chiefly the lat
ter half thereof, the value of standing tim
ber has Increased tenfold, twentyfold and
even flftyfold, according to local condi
tions. The present annual growth la only
about 1 per cent of the annual cut. Re
placement by new growth Is slow.
"What did the government get for th
timber? Of the southern timber, sold for
11.26 an acre, much la now worth $60 an
acre. Large amount of douglaa fir In
western Washington and Oregon, which
the government gave away or aold at 12.50
an acre, now range from 1100 to $200 per
"The great Redwood bed In California
wa alienated on similar terms and It Is
now worth hundreds of dollars an acre.
Practically none of the great forests In th
public land atates was sold by the govern
ment for more than 2S4 an acre. The
great increase of value give grave Impor
tance to the concentration of ownership.
"Whatever power over prices may arise
from combinations In manufacture and dis
tribution (as distinguished from timber
owning) such power Is Insignificant and
