Tourists of wealth and fashion as well as mountain climbers and lovers of out-door life from all over the world are flooking in constantly increasing numbers to the Cordilleran system of mountains on our Western coast. Even from a purely economic point of view it would be extremely unwise to administer our scenio resouroes in such a way that comparatively private gain results in universal public loss. In taking this stand we express the sentiment of our membership of more than a thousand persons, who have subscribed not only to the purposes of the Sierra Club, "to explore, enjoy, and render accessible the mountain regions of the Pacific Coast; to publish authetic information concerning them; to enlist the support and oo—operation of the people and the government in preserving the forests and other natural features of the Sierra Nevada Mountains," but who follow with intelligent and appreciative interest every effort to seoure to our and coming generations the benefit of our soenio resources.Respectfully yours,JOHN MUIR.A.G.MoADIE.J.N.LeCONTE.WM.
