As I understand it, neither the Caminetti Bill nor the McRae Bill, nor Senator Kyle's Bill for a national forest commission, passed Congress. The McRae Bill got through the Houses but was killed by Teller in the Senate. I inclose an editorial on that subject.
Do tell me whether the new legislation in California concerning the Yosemite is a genuine thing. Has the New York reform movement Illegible penetrated as far as Sacramento?
