I beg to submit the attached report of Mr. Clyde Leavitt, the Chief Forester of the Commission of Conservation. Mr. Leavitt, in submitting his report, said:
" I have the honour to submit the accompanying report, which contains information collected under the direction of the Committee on Forests during the years 1913 and 1914. That portion of the report which relates to the railway fire situation in Canada was prepared principally in my capacity as Chief Fire Inspector for the Board of Railway Commissioners."
