CHICAGO, April 17. Lumber
dealers of Chicago began laying off
teamsters and laborers today as a re

out openly yesterday between build

The Lumber Dealers' association an

Nebraska pioneer, this most useful
and practical of all our-holldays has
spread all over the country, . until
. I - . . . 'w
now it is observed in every state. And
it Is a matter of great pride to.Ne
braskans that a citizen' of this state
originated t the idea.-, Arbor day Is
often referred to as "Nebraska's gift
to the states of the union."
Need of Trees.
As early as 184 O. P. Marsh' of Ver
mont, our representative at the courts of
Italy and Turkey, pointed eut. the ab
solute need of forests in this country and
their great influence on climate and rain
fall. "In Europe the forests are regarded
as the most valuable crop," he said.
J. Kterllng- Morton "in 1872 started the
first practical, strong movement for the
establishment of a set day for the plant
ing of tree and vine.
The first Arbor day proclaimed in the
L'nlted States or the world waa pro
claim d in Nebraska, April- lfl.. 1871. It- is
estimated that 1.000,000 trees were planted
on the treeless plains of Nebraska, that
Jn the sixteen years Immediately follow
ing that, 850,000.009 trees and vines were
planted in Nebraska. And up to the pres
ent time more than a 'thousand million
trees and vines have been planted in Ne
Fooled .the Scientists. ,
It was a great movement to be started
in a state where there were hardly any
trees and on whose soil spectacled and
high-browed scientists solemly declared
trees would not rrow.
Probably in thts case "necessity was the
mother of invention'' and the real and
genuine need of trees prompted . the
pioneer U start the movement to have1
The first Arbor day to be officially pro
claimed by an executive was that of 1874,
when Governor Robert W. Furnas
named the third Wednesday in April of
that year to be Arbor day. The day was
proclaimed annually, in Nebraska, after
that, until 1K6. when the legislature
passed an act designating April Zt. Mr.
Morton's birthday, to be Arbor Jay and
made it a legal holiday, eacb year;
Tree Plaaitlaa; State.
The legislature of 1W6 designated Ne
braska as the ""Tree Planters' Slate"'
snd adopted the golden rod as the floral
emblem. This state even made a change
in Its constitution providing that the In
crcawed value of land by reason of live
fenoes, fruit trees and forest trees should
not to taken Into account in levying
assessments for taxes.
The school children in all the Omaha
sohools will ha special exercises In cel
ebration of the day. There will be song
and- recitations and ceremonies and tree
plantings. Most of the city scheola have
ample trees planted in their grounds now
and flourishing like the green bay tree,
these being there now as a result of by
gone Arbor days and standing as living
examples of the beneficent effects of tree
planting. In grounds of some of the
newer schools trees provided by the

230,000 farmers are affiliated, was called
to the stand. ' He said that his opinion
that grain rates should not be advanced
was based on two general propositions.
"First, said Mr. Hopkins, "grain is not
economically handled by the carriers.
There are methods of handling which
would save for the shippers possibly more
than . the proposed advance 'would net

"Second, the transportation of grain
now pays the carriers more than a fair
share of the total freight revenue."
