Since this work has had particular
attention In this Territory and the
good work will be further forwarded

.Mr. Hoosevelt In summing up nt
the i lose of his message says:
Tho Joint conference already
mentioned adopted two resolu
tions to which I call your special
attention. The first wna intend
ed to promote co-operntlon be

upon all tho great questions here

The second resolution of the
Joint conference to which I refer
calls upon tho Congress to provldo
the means for such co-oporatlon.
The principle of tlio community
of Interest among all our pcoplo
in tho great natural resources
runs through the report of tho
National conservation commis
sion and tho piocecdlngs of the
Tho resolution follows:
"Wo also especially urgo on tho
Congress of the United States the
high desirability of maintaining a
national commission on tho con
servation of the resources of tho
country, empowered to co-opor-nte
with State commissions to the
end thnt every sovereign com
monwealth and every section of
the country may attain tho high
degree of prosperity and tlio sure
ncss of perpetuity naturally aris
ing In the abundant resources and
the vigor, Intelligence, nnd patri
otism of our people."
In this recommendation I nlost
heartily concur, and I urgo that
an appropriation of at least $50,
000. be made to cover tho expen
ses of tlioNntlonnl conservation
commission for necessary rent, us- '
slstancc and traveling "Expenses.
This is a very small sum. I know
of no other way tu which the ap
propriation of so small a sum
would result In so large a benefit
to tlie wholo Nation.
Tho peoplo of Ituwnli should ro-
member that tho usefulness of a com
mission depends on the loyal and en
thusiastic support It gains from tho
men and women of the country. Ha
waii can help.

"As to the figures, what 1 said wns
