VICTORIA'S STATE FORESTS. The State forest reserves . have shrunk to an. area of 3,825.946 acres; which is 7 per cent: of the total acre age of Victoria. The inadequacy of this extent is emphasised by the fact that the percentage of forest reserves in European countries is much higher, i.e., Russia (European), 33: Austria, 32; Japan. 30; Germany, 26; United ' States, 25; Norway,' 24;;Hungary, 23; France. 17: Italy, 14; Victoria, 7. Although Victoria has still a good deal of forest country outside the ac tual reserves, this Is being denuded of timber so quickly that 'Mr. Mackey (Conservator'of Forests) fears, unless some decisive action is taken, Victoria will have a timber famine in a decade or so. Mr. Mackay claims, and lie ; lias made strong representations to ' tl'.e Ministry on the: point, that in fu ture interests of the State it is essen tial that further reservations of forest land shall be made withqut delay..
