sage Ms one of tho most Important
of his administration and Rhould be
of' especial Interest to peop'e of Ha
waii, who have taken many ad
vanced -steps In conservation and
would bo pleased to go further If
Congress will, bo so good a's to In
clude our Territory within the scopo
of ,the reclamation work.
The President supports the rec
ommendation made by Secretary Hal
llnser that there be a general re
classification of public lands. Ho
urges the Issuance of $30,000,000 In
bonds for tho assistance of settlers
who took up land thinking the irriga
tion work would be immediately for
warded on lands which novo never
been reclaimed, and, also tho Inau
guration of an adequate Inland wa
terwajs policy that will require on
appropriation of $63,000,000. '
President Tatt In his closing para
graph notes that Congress has order
ed an investigation' of 'the Interior
Department and the forest service of
the Agricultural Department, but
asks that' the measures recommended
bo taken up and disposed of prompt
ly without waiting tho result of tho
Investigation which has tbeen 'deter
mined upon, on the ground that the
result of that Investigation Is not
needed to determine, the value of add
tho- necessity for the new legisla
tion. The message notes that In X860

President says that tho old statutes
were inadequate, that fraud was fre

upon this awakening of public In

President Taft then addresses him
self to tho task of determining How
io save, to utilize, to conserve and
to develop. He says that Secretary
Dalllnger ,has temporarily with-1
drawn wnter-powcr sites on lt2
streams in 'order to safeguard them
until Congress may act. He notes
that present statutes aro not adapt

His opinion of the method!, to bo

powers is easily understood. He
takes the ground that the govern
ment owning the land adjacent., to
water power In Btreams Is thp owner
of the riparian rights, and that 'by
retaining control of the land It 'may
retain control of the water power.
He says that many water-power sites
which wero once on the public do
main have already passed Into pri
vate ownership and may eventually
drift into one; ownership, but if the
water-Dower sites now owned by the
government are disposed of 'under
the proper restrictions there are still
enough of them to -prevent such a

seem to dispose of the statement that

scends all (others;1 Including woods,

country. It Is Incumbent upon the
government to foster by all avail

people. To ithls end' the conscWn
tlon of the, soils v of tho country
should be cared' fori with all means

they come may be enriched."
