Mr. J our moved--That it is the duty of this Congress to draw the attention of Governments to the necessity of better precautions against forest fires. He thought respectful representations on the subject would receive due attention from the Governments of the United States and Canada. Mr. J oly's motion was carried. and, on motion, it was resolved that the Committee should consist of Mr. P. White, M. P., Mr. J. K. Ward, Dr. Mohr, Hon. Mr. Bryson, Dr. Hough, Mr. B. C. Fernow, Hon. Mr. Joly, Mr. William Little, Mr. Charles H. Sargent and Mr. E. D. Baker. The remainder of the day was taken up with the reading of papers, many of them of very great value, to which fuller reference will be made in a subsequent part of our report. The evening session was of a more popular character. It was held in the Queen's Hall, and was well attended by a large gathering of ladies and gentlemen. The Hon. Mr. Joly introduced the Hon. Gen. Eaton, Commissioner of Education for the United States, who had kindly consented to address the meeting. Hon. Gen. Eaton said that, having had opportunity to observe most of the forests in the United States, he was able to appreciate the importance of this meeting. But he was here in his capacity of education. Forestry was a subject on which the general public must first be informed before they can take the remedial measures called for by the needs of our forests. Man should not be the enemy of the tree when God had placed them side by side to react upon each other for man's better health and greater happiness. The tree was man's friend, and he should be so taught to consider it. We must have text 0 books for the schools and scientific magazines, more
