OdeU and the members of the Legislature concerning- pending ' amendments totha Bute ConsUtu don as they relate to the State Forest Preserve. .." '".-V ' ." ' In protesting against any change la Article VII., Section 7. of - the - ConsUtuUon. which provides that the lands included fci the preserve shall be kept forever, as wild forest lands, and neither leased nor sold, the committee first recounts the . difficulties experienced ' in educating the popular mind to a full understanding of .the value to the State of the forests.: vIt calls attention to the fact that It was the Committed on Forestry of the New York Board of Trade and Transportation which submitted to the Constitutional Convention of liAtt the draft of an amendment of which the article re- xerrea to was the result. , The statement continue? '' The ' question ot forat ' preservation ' Is one which cannot b mastered in the busy and brief period of a legislative session. .Statements made to members and legislative committees are wholly upon honor, and too often only one side Is presented, and that In the most pleasing way possible. . These conditions and methods favor erroneous conclusions. " . . . . . The question arises, therefore. . and . this com. roittee feels warranted Ih erglns it upon Uie consideration of the Liesislature, with all respect for the wisdom of that body, is it safe in the present condition of knowledge on the' forest question to eonfide the eare of the forests to the lwerfalatare. as provided shaU be dons in the pending- Constitutional amendments? ' ' Is it Wise to break down the nafeeuarde TMtad and now exl.Unj in Article VI L, SecUoa T. of the Stats ConsUtuUon, unUI such time in the future as the knowledge of forest care and preservation shall have become more universal, as the result of the stud) and experiments now proceeding, and which shall then make dear what changes are pracUrabie, wise, and safe? The undersigned committee thinks it very unsafe and unwise, and urse upon all members of the Legislature and Stats officials, as well as private cltlsens, a careful consideration of this very Important question. . , -. ,:. HOW FOREST COMMISSION WORKED. The lack of confidence in previous Forest Commissions is explained by some references to certain matters which came under notice when the draft of the Constitutional addition was being prepared. The committee says in explanation: - By what influences moved tt cannot be said, but la December. 1894. on the ere of the taking effect of Article V1L, Section T. of the ConsUtuUon. the Forest Commission met and took action to grant a certain railroad company the right of way through the State forests which the amendment a week later would close to them. The proposed grant had Just before been denied by the Land Board after a bearing of the case. A peremptory Injunction by the Supreme Court against the action of the commission prevented the consummation of the grant until the amendment took effect. . and this deliberate attempt by- the commission to circumvent the expressed purposes of the people was prevented. Not content, however, the commission before the new Constitution was two weeks old . ran. sented to the introduction in the Legislature of an amrnament aesignea to eliminate the Intent of the forest preserve provision. - No opposition wss then made, and, after passing two Legislatures, this proposed amendment came before the people at the polls two Tears later with the open support of the Forest Commission, which Issued an official appeal te the public to- Its behalf. This attempt to open the forests was also defeated, and the Article VII.. Section 7. sustained in its original form by a majority of neany ew.uuu votes, tne largest majority ever given In this State to any question or candidate, eitnef State or NaUonai. The committee therefore Is satisfied that the test proved the fact that to the people alone could be confided the protection of their interests In this respect The question of particular amendments is then discussed as follows: . . Referring more particularly lo the proposed eonsUtuUonal amendment.' Assembly ;Nc, 4. introduced by Mr. O. Paris, and those with similar provisions introduced by Senator Brown. Senate No. 13 and Senate Nov 389. your attention is respectfully called to some of the pro visions proposed by them, the opening up of the State Forest Preserve for the cutUng of its Umber by a system of aclnatiru, r--r and the leasing of camp sites not to exceed two acres In extent, such leases not to be made for a longer period than twenty years, nor to cover more than two hundred and fifty feet of shore line on any lake or river. - Another feature of this leasing la that no more than one-half ' of vuvis luun nui oe leaseo. .. . This leasing of sites carries wltfc It th talnty that the choicest situations of the State Forest Preserve would be selected by the lessees, thereby excluding the public from the enjoyment of the advantages they afford. . The shores of the lakes, ponds, and other water fronts thus rented would In time be stripped of their timber la suppiy im various wsnta created by the cir cumstances oi occupancy. Footnuhi mmiiu. and roads would be cut through the surrounding forests, opening their recesses to the. torrid heats of Summer and the assaults of theW Inter storms. Such a removal of the. trees would re. suit finally in the exposure of these sites to the destructive forces of the - elements, despoil them of their picturesque beauty, impair their healtb- luiness. ana aesiroy ineir economical usefulness as woodlands. In addition to these evils are those greater ones due to fire. With their many and necessary uses ot fire for household purposes, these camps snd cottages occupying the sites, would be a constant menace to the Integrity of the adjacent woods. The dangers from such a source would be multiplied from - their being occupied . by the lessees during the very period when the forests are the dry est and therefore more liable to be ravaged by this dread scourge. Owing to ths combustible nature of the material composing them from long seasoning; these premises when not occupiea or aesertea would sull , be extremely baxardous. - - Every site thus occupied would " increase the probability of the-vlsltsUon of this destructive agent. Should these forests Is a season of continued drought be ravaged by such deplorable fires as those that devastated the Northwest It would be not only a State, but a National calamity, considering the relation 'Which this - State Dears to we rest oi us union.. . , - - THE QUESTION OP WATER SUPPLT. The attention of the Governor .and of the members of the Legislature Is also called to the fact that another provision of the pro posed amendment, while It forbids the ex tension of steam railroads into the forest Dreserve. covertlv nrovides. for its invminn by horse cars, trolley, electrical, and other roads. Next comes ths consideration of the important Question of water suddiv as it la affected by the proposed changes. On this suDiect tne committee speaks as follows This question of a water supply Is one whose importance is Dome in upon our attention with an Irresistible and Impressive force by a passing study of the increase In population of New York City proper In the last century. Suiting In 1800 With flO.OuO inhabitants, the Increase has been equal to an averssre gain every decade of about per cent.; wnne in tne last rive decades Brooklyn has surpassed this In her a vera re growth. - But assuming that the average Increase each decade of ths metropolitan district W1U be but SO per cent., an annnal increase of only about rtr cent., her population in 1930 would reach 000,000; and there are thousands now living who wiH in 1030 see this metropolis, contain Ins IX, 000,000 people, or about twioe the slse of the present population of the whole State. . Again the Greater New Tork is. and must con. tlnue to be,- the greatest manufacturing centre of the country, and ner consumption-of water. thereforo, will be much greater per bead than It would be otherwise. Placing this at the low fUntre of- IS gallons a day per capita in . 1920l and 180 gallons in i960, the city would require at the former period 9u0.0ii0.00v gallons, and a half century hence gallons a day.- The daily use of such enormous volumes of water in -the approximate future raises at once the question as to their sources and. the means by which they are to be furnished. To these everlasting hills of the CatsklUs snd Adiroodscks which seem to have been upreared by an omnipotent and creative band - for this beneficent purpose, and to the forests clothing their uplands and heights, and Which alone can draw-from the . Inexhaustible reservoirs of the clouds the full bounty of their lire-giving springs we must turn for ths solution of this problem ana its ainarea ones. . The statement closes by again calling the attention of members of the Legislature to the fact that the people have twice shown their desires in regard to this matter of forest preservation by an overwhelming vote at tne pons. . - . - , HUNT FOR VANDERBILT DOG. : Persons whose business or, pleasure took them into Central Park last night were pusxled as to the cause of the all-pervading sound of ' whistling. - - Whistles loud and long, whistles soft and low., and sharp and shrill - resounded on all sides, Big policemen were going around' with their eyes to the ground and whistling tremulously. It was later ascertained that the causa of all the harmony was Alfred O. Vsnder-bilt'a Irish terrier. Spot, who had escaped from. Mr. Vsnderbilt's valet while the latter was walking up Fifth Avenue in-the afternoon. The valet was unable to find him. and Mr. Vanderbilt telephoned to the Arsenal, orrering- a rewara tor pot s recovery.

LEE AT PATiUGH THIAL Physician Vha Aided at t.!cKin!:y Operation Testifiss. Says Chloroform Vapor Is Not an Ir ' :; rltant, YVhlla Dr. Ewlng of Cor-- ' nell Sayg It lay Expert' medical testimony, presented by the defense, to show that William Marsh Rice died, a 'natural death, occupied the day's session yesterday at the beginning of the seventh 'week 'of Albert' T. Patrick's trial on the charge of instigating Charles F.- Jones to chloroform his old employer. Dr Jacob Wallace Lee, one of .the physicians present at the operation on President McKlnley, . declared - that the vapor -of chloroform was not an Irritant gas, and to prove i thla . he placed - an uncorked two-ounce bottle of the anaesthetic under, but not touching, his tongue, and then placed It near his eye. He declared he experienced no Irritation In either case. ;.' ; " . Dr. Lee, In : response , to a hypothetical Question of Mr. Moore of counsel for the defense' Incorporating- all of Rice's symptoms and the disclosures of the autopsy, declared that in his opinion death was caused by congestion of the lungs and kidney disease. Thla answer bears out' the prosecution's contention that Rice's death was caused by - congestion of the lungs, brought on by the inhalation of chloroform. Dr. Lee, la reply , to Questions of Mr. Moore, said that the odor of chloroform could be detected In a room hours after its administration. Dr. Lee said he didn't think ' a cone containing a chloroformed sponge, such as Jones described, could remain on a patient's face without some one holding it or without waking the person, as the first instinct of a patient, when chloroform was administered, was to move. He said congestion of the lungs was not found always after death from chloroform, and that when there was congestion of the lungs there was generally congestion of tha heart,-liver, kidneys, and brain also. He was asked by Mr. Moore it chlorofqra was con bustlble. Mr. Osborne said he would admit that It wasn't, and, beginning his cross-examination, showed by Dr. Lee that though a towel saturated with chloroform would not- burn while damp, - the damp quickly passed off and that the towel would hurn as soon as the evaporating; elements of the chloroform passed away that Is, within about ten minutes after the chloroform was poured on the cloth. This demon--stratlon probably will be made later In the trial. Dr. . Lee admitted that coextensive congestion of tha lungs could be caused by an Irritant vapor. Dr. James Ewlng. a pathologist attached to the Cornell University Medical School, the next witness, in response to practically the same hypothetical question asked Dr. Lee, said In his opinion the cause of death was pneumonia; congestion and oedema of the lungs. In response to a-similar question giving the results of the autopsy, he aaid the facts stated to him showed no evidences of chloroform ss a cause of death, lie said acute pneumonia would cause coextensive congestion of the lungs, and. contrary to Dr. Lee. said that chloroform vapor was an irritant. Robert Aurlch, Morgue attendant, was not permitted to testify to conversation be tween mjtb. xjonun ana Williams after the aVJp"y. in Rice's body was performed. The defense wished to show that Drs. ponlln and Williams had said that Rice had died of old age. and that he had not died other than a natural death. The trial wyi continue to-day. . , . . . IN THE SHOPS. It is rfulte new, this Du Barry ring,' and so different from the ordinary run of rings that' the average woman might not know it was a ring unless 'she was fortunate enough to see it for the first time upon some ' one's hand. . . Imagine two curved bands shaped like a big; hook ot some kind, with a large ornamental piece of goldwork at the back.' and there you have It. Of course, no one understands the description, but the ring must be seen to be appreciated. When It la on. the front part curves down well on to the hand, while the aides curve up to go between the fingers, and the back, with its ornamental mass - of gold and Jewels, curves down, and makes an excellently fitting ring. The ornamental part is carried down low on the finger, so that there is ample room for it, and tha finger does not look as If it were dwarfed. However, to see it is to understand. ' , - . .: v . - Any number of those pretty little platinum chains are. to be seen now or really one should say are not to be seen, for that is their purpose. Every other woman has been wearing a tiny chain of gold around her neck, tucked inside her collar, for some time, and she still wears them.' too, of. course, and 'their only use is to support a pretty ornament of some kind while they themselves are as inconspicuous aa possible. If one would bo swell nowadays, it Is the platinum chain or nothing, the jeweler says. As a matter of fact, while -it Is very nice to have them, even the woman- of wealth does not change the styles of her jewels every day, and If she haa a tiny gold chain she will continue to wear it for some time to come. -.-, i'. ;! .' ".'-;.- : '" ' -" -r - ' ';- It la no saving of expense to invest in platinum, for it is now more costly than gold.- Within the last ten : years ' It - has been rising rapidly in the ' good graces of Jewelers.. - and the people for whom the jewelers put into shape their best thoughts. The dull-colored metal has tripled in value within that time. : - When the tiny chain has for an ornament something which is a 'pin, a brooch as well as a charm, it is called by the name of the FTencb, originator. Lav VsXllre. Those pretty little hearts . which : every one is wearing nowadays, and which are set solidly with precious stones of one kind or another, are called paved " hearts. It is not a pretty name, but then it -has a professional sound. . - - ?. .. - ' - ' '- Cabouchon cutting is to be found In all kinds of stones, not only for men, for whom It is eminently appropriate, but tor women, for whom it is very smart, especially when stones cut la this way are worn with garments of simple effect.
