William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Muir urges ''friends of our national park system" to protest. He writes: "Timber and water are universal wants .... But however abundantly supplied from legitimate sources, every national park is besieged by thieves and robbers and beggars with all sorts of plans and pleas for possession of some coveted treasure of water, timber, pasture, rights of way, etc. Nothing dollarable is safe, however guarded. Thus the Yosemite park ... Nature's own mountain wonderland, has been attacked by the spoilers ever since it was established, and this strife, I suppose, must go on as part of the eternal battle between right and wrong."
