Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...acre for non-agricultural lands (exclusive of the timber thereon) desired for state forests, except in the case of state school or other state lands, when the appraised value may be paid. When desirable to purchase timber it may be paid for at the market price. On account of the difficulty of keeping track of the different funds, it is desirable that $9,302.65, the balance of the emergency appropriation of 1911 be turned into the regular contingent fund of the Forest Service. This will greatly simplify payments of fire fighting claims. Sec. 15, Chap. 125, Laws of 1911, should be amended so as to provide that when slashings are left unburned contrary to the instructions of the State's Forester, his deputy. or a District Ranger, the District Ranger or a patrolman working under him may go upon the premises with such force of men as may be necessary, and burn such branches, slashings, debris-etc., and the expense thereof shall be a lien upon the land. There should be an annual appropriation of $100,000, to be expended by the Forestry Board in obtaining lands and timber for state forests. The appropriation for the maintenance and support of Itasca Park should be increased from $6,000 to $10,000 per year. The present law regarding Itasca Park should be revised: (a) to correct the terms aplied to different features about which there is at present time some confusion; (b) to permit the leasing of the hotel property to the highest responsible and satisfactory bidder. The Forestry Board should have authority to extend the boundary of Itasca Park by purchase, it being understood that lands added to the park from this date on shall be state forest land, to be handled as a state forest, rather than as a park in the strict sense of the word. more
