(Continued from Page 1) troduced aa evidence and It appears as ooe of the few alterna­ tives available to ttie complete elimination of the railroad. However, the time to act to save the vital spurs into Lewis County is now. In the not too distant past, the New York Cen­ tral Railroad (before Its merger wtth the Pennsylvania Rail­ road) asked the I.C.C, for permission to discontinue rail ser­ vice between Lyons Falls and Lowville. The I.C.C. granted ten­ tative approval, subject to reversal. However, before there could be any '‘reversal,*’ the railroad went ahead and tore up all of the tracks between Lowvllle and Lyons Falls, and thus sealed the fate of the Lowville to Lyons Falls section of the line. At hearings of the I.C.C. held prior to that fateful decision, apathy ruled the day suid few area officials or business leaders attended the hearings to voice their protests. The attitude was: \What good would lt do? If the railroad wants to cut its ser­ vice It wUl regardless of what we say or do.\ Perhaps. How­ ever, a similar situation developed recently over the Gen­ eral Telephone Company of Upstate New York asking for a massive rate increase. The Board of Legislators were moved to request a hearing ln LowvlUe by the Public Service Com­ mission. The hearing was held and turned out to be the most heavily attended of such hearings In the state. The massive rate increase was denied and a comprehensive investigation Into the adequacy of Gen-Tel’s service to its subscribers was undertaken by PSC order. If we are to save rati service In Lewis County we need to be heard -NOW! The JOURNAL has already made Congres- sional Inquiries into the problem. We hope that we are Joined by the Board of Legislators, oiir state legislators, federal leg­ islators and everyone else even’ remotely concerned ln a mas­ sive effort to save these vita} rail links. - Michael J. Blair On this centennial anniversary, „tt is appropriate to recall the extra-ordinary Influence of Hough’s paper, presented as a private citizen before a small assemblage ot scientists. His­ torically, it ls appropriate also to acknowledge the energizing role of the AAAS in starting forestry work on a national scale ln the United States government. - Henry Clepper, American For­ estry Association, 1319 18 th SL, NW, Washington, D.C. 20036. Besides being the father of American forestry, Dr. Hough was a remarkable man of var­ ied knowledge and expertise. He was a doctor of medicine, geo­ logist, botanist, and as a statis­ tician he served aa New York State’s superintendent of the state census in 1885, and completed the most comprehensive census of the state at that time, as a teacher he taught in numerous schools and served ln adminis­ trative capacities as well, as a historian he authored die three well-known histories of Lewis County, Jefferson County and SL Lawrence Counties, as wen as other studies of a historical na­ ture which resulted ln a long list at publications. There probably has never been another New York State resident who could equal Dr, Hough’s remarkably varied contribution to American Biblio­ graphy, in which the contribu­ tion to American Forestry ls an Important part. Lewis County and the Lowville area can be proud of him. - Fred L. Johnson, Low­ vllle, Regional Forester, N.Y.S. Department ot Environmental Conservation.

Finally, on 15 Au­ gust 1876, Congress enacted leg­ islation appropriating $2000 for the appointment to the Depart, ment of Agriculture of a man to Investigate forest conditions. Hough was selected on 30 Au­ gust and thus became the federal government’s first forestry a. gent.

In 1838, a bridge was built over High Falls • so called at tbat date by Capt. John Whittlesey, and this was rebuilt ln 1842, according to Town of West Tu­ rin records and \Hough’s His­ tory of Lewis County.’’ Ia 1849, the Black River Canal was about to be projected Into the North and so the state, as a part of the planned canal system, built the \Three-Way Bridge.” A plaque at the site of tbe old bridge will be unveiled to the public on Oct. 8. This bridge began to play Its Important part ln the history of the area when the township on the East was still Grelg, but the same men and women were con­ tributors to bistory when In 1873 the Town of Lyonsdale waa formed and for one hundred years have shared with the Town of West Tu­ rin and surrounding townships the rivers and bridges and worked closely together. This Is doi - trayed ln Clarence L. Fisher’s \History of Lyons Falls,’’ pub­ lished ln 1918, and more recently In Haxel C. Drew’s \Tales from Little Lewis\. Mrs. Drew, as historian of Lyons Falls for twenty-five years, 1946-1971, had written, as historian, many homespun stories Of the southern area of Lewis County - stories which she incorporated Into one volume in 1961 under the title \Tales from Little Lewis” and reprinted two years before her death tn 1971. Because of Mrs. Drew’s vital Interest ln local history, her sons, Herbert and Howard Drew, expressed the wish of giving the proceeds from the balance of sales of \Tales from Little Lewis” to the local histor­ ians for use tor some historical purpose. A committee wts formed, made up of the historians, Mrs. Marguerite H. Parrish, Town of West Turin; Mrs. Mary Teal, VlUage of Lyons Falls; Mrs, Dorothy O’Brien, Town of them, Miss Matilda Burdick, Glenfleld, and plans were maale for a commemorative marker for the \Three-Way Bridge” In memory of Haxel C. Drew. And so lt ls, ln the last two years, that the \Fund” has been estab­ lished and the “ Marker” Is becoming a reality. Though the point between the Mooae and Black Rivera, where the marker ls to be placed, Is In Lyons FaUs village, lt ls at the same time In the Town at Lyons- dale. So, with the cooperation of the Towns of Lyonsdale and West Turin, the County Highway Dept., the village of Lyons Falls and Its local Industry, Georgia- Pacific, tt la erected. In the early years, tba \Point where the marker Is to be placed, waa the property of the Lyon family, later of Gould Paper Co., and most re­ cently of Georgia-Pacific. When permission was sought tor plac­ ing the marker, Georgia-Pacific decided to deed the whote\Polnt” over to the Village that lt might become a part of the Village Park. The road on the \Point” to the river was still wider county Jurisdiction but that Is also being turned over to the VUlage. This serves as access to Hie river for fishermen. They, the cbunty highway crew, all worked with a genuine in­ terest and pride that day In June when the 20 ton boulder was moved from a location ln the Fish­ er Pines to the “ Point,” between Moose and Black rivers where It wlU proudly hold the commem­ orative plaque honoring the close site of the “ Three-Way Bridge” crossing the rivers from 1849. 1964. The county highway crew not only moved the boulder but graded, brought top soil, Incor­ porated additional drainage, topped the drive and cooperated ln any way tbey could to prepare the grounds.
