The Recent Session of the
General Assembly Mads
The Forrest Laws of Our
State More Stringent.
In the. course of its recent (Session,
the General Assembly passed a bill
entitled "An Act to Amend Sections
43(),;) 4310, 6136 of the , Consolidated
Statutes relating to Forest Fires."
Section 4309 read as follows before
the amendment was made:
"If any person shall intentionally
set tire to any grass land; brush land
or woodland, exfept. it lie his own
property, or, in that case, without
first giving notice to all persons
owning or in charge of lands ad
joining the land intended to be fired,
and without also taking ' care to
watch such fire while burning, and
to extinguish it before it shall reach
any lands near to or adjoining the
lands so fired, he shall for every such
offense be guilty of a misdemeanor,
and shall be fined not less -than $10
nor more than $50, or imprisoned not
exceeding thirty days. This section
shall not prevent an action for the
damages sustained by the owner of
any property from such fires. For
the purpose of this section, the term
'woodland' is to be taken to include
all forest areas, both timber and cut
over land, and all second-growth
stands on areas that have at one time -been
cultivated. Any person who
shall furnish to the State evidence
sufficient for the conviction of a vio
lation of this statute shall receive
the sum of $20, to be taxed as part
of the court costs,."
In case of conviction for violation
of this statute the amendment pro-
vides for a minimum fine of $50, in
stead of $10, and a maximum fine
of $500. instead of $50, or imprison
ment for a period , of not less than
sixty . days nor more than ' four '.
months for the first offense, and for
a second or any subsequent similar
offense imprisonment not less than
four months nor more than one year.
The reward to any person who may
furnish sufficient evidence for the
conviction of a violation of this-,
statute has been increased by the
Amendment from $20 to $50, this re
ward to be taxed as part. of the court
The Legislature also made the fol
lowing addition to the Forest Laws:
"It shall be the duty of all district,
county, township, wardens and all
deputy wardens to distribute in all '
of the public schools and high schools
of the county in which they are serv- ,
ing as fire wardens all such tracts,
books, periodicals and other' litera
ture that may, from time 'to time, be
sent out to such wardens by the State
and Federal Forestry agencies
touching or dealing with Forest Fires
and "Forest Preservation.
It shall be the duty of the various
wardens herein mentioned under the
direction of the State Forester, and
the duty of the teachers of the vari
ous schools, both public and. high
schools, to keep posted at some con
spicuous place in the various class
rooms of the school buildings such
appropriate bulletins and posters as
may be. sent out from the Forestry
Agencies herein named for that pur
pose and keep the same constantly
before their pupils; and said teachers
and wardens shall prepare lectures,
or talks to be made to the pupils of
the various schools on the sttbjcct of
. Forest Fires, their origin and their ,
destructive effect on the plant life
and tree- life of the forests of the
State and shall be prepared to give'
practical instruction to their pupils
from lvv.it- U time and as often-as
they shall find it possible so to 'do." "?
