Excerpt from Hearings Before the Committee on Agriculture on Bills Having for Their Object the Acquisition of Forest and Other Lands for the Protection of Watersheds and Conservation of the Navigability of Navigable Streams: Also Other Papers Bearing on the Same Subjects, Sixtieth Congress Second Session

The effect of the Shortage of water supply caused by the cutting of the trees at the head waters of the streams we shall try to Show you has been wide-reaching. The diminution Of water power in creases the cost of production to our manufacturers, it increases the prices of our products, not only of cotton cloths, but particularly of paper, of which New England, as you know, is the center. It has added to the cost of the production of garden truck and the products of the farm. Finally, I shall endeavor to Show you that lack of attention to these forests and the consequent low water in the streams has materially contributed to the spread of disease. The water sinking in the streams causes a deposit of sewage along the banks, and from that Springs the dread plagues of typhoid fever and diphthe ria, and certainly it is for the general welfare to prevent the death Of citizens of the United States by pestilence in time of peace, as well as preserving the equipment of soldiers in time of war.
