                   LOCOMOTIVE INSPECTION.
  The cooperative work with the railroads running through the forest
regions of the state has been continued with splendid results during the
past two seasons. There has been a steady improvement in the type of
equipment used by the various roads and especially in the general upkeep
of the spark arresting devices.
  Following is the report of Mr. A. E. Hoffman, Merrill, covering the
work from May 1, to November 1, 1916.
Wisconsin Conservation Commission,
        Madison, Wisconsin

  I herewith submit to you my report of locomotives and rights of way
