UNION LECTURE ON FORESTRY.

Hon. J. W. Weeks to Explain Purposes of White Mountain Reserve Bill.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Hon J. W. Weeks, United States Representative from the twelfth Massachusetts district, will speak on "Forestry Legislation and the New White Mountain Bill," in the Living Room of the Union this evening at 8 o'clock. This lecture is open only to members of the Union.

Mr. Weeks proposed and was instrumental in the passing of the Appalachian Forest Reserve Bill, which provides for the purchase by the government of forest lands about the headwaters of navigable rivers in the mountains of Maine and New Hampshire. Considerable difficulty was at first experienced because of some doubt as to the constitutionality of the measure, but this was overcome by the fact that the government is empowered to protect navigable streams.
