in the reservation of all the forest lands left in the possession of the Government & the [illegible]tion & adoption of a rational forest management. Every year for the last 25 years more Sequoias have been felled, blasted, & sawed into lumber on the Fresno, Kings, Kaweah, & Tule rivers than are contained in the Calaveras Grove perhaps twice as many with scarce a whimper from the public.
