Secretary of the Interior Ballinger has restored to the public domain one hundred and fifty thousand acres of the land which was temporarily withdrawn in 1908 and 1909 for the purpose of creating the Alabama national forest. The restored lands will become subject to settlement on Oct. 31 and to entry on Nov. 30. The idea of establishing the Alabama rational forest was abandoned by the forest service because, upon investigation, it was impracticable from a business standpoint. The area, it is said, was small and contained timber of poor quality, and a portion of the land was valuable for agricultural purposes.

Charles A. Corant, who represented the United States at The Hague conference on the proposition of establishing uniformity in international bills of exchange, has reported informally to the state and treasury departments the results of that conference, which was in session from June 23 to July 25. Representatives of all the principal commercial rations of world participated in the conference. While there was substantial agreement upon such a law, a subsequent conference was proposed.
