Petition No. 563. By Mr. James: Petition of A. F. Anderson and 19 other lumbermen of the Upper Peninsula, suggesting certain amendments to the highway laws.

Mr. James moved that the petition be spread at length on the Journal.
The motion prevailed.
The following is the petition :

We, the undersigned lumbermen, request your honorable body to pass an act, amending section 8 of chapter 9 of Act No: 283 of the Public Acts of 1909, as per enclosed copy.

In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan there are several counties that are very sparsely settled, and in which lumbering is the principal industry.

Under the present law the Highway Commissioner is not authorized to lay out anything but sleigh or wagon roads.

Much of the logging at present is done with logging railroads, the use of which is constantly increasing. The lands cannot be used for agricultural purposes until the timber is removed, and in order to remove the timber, logging railroads are a necessity under present economical conditions.

This amendment would authorize the commissioner and township board to permit the building of temporary logging railroads for a limited time.

The petition was referred to the Committee on Railroads.
