THE WASHINGTON TDIES, FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1913.
IS DEALT WATER
Secretary Stimson Succeeds in
, Reserving Control of Prop
erty Sought By Trust.
By JUDSON C. WELLIVER.
The Water Power trust, which for
Tears has ben seeking control of avail
able water powers all over the country,
received another hard blow today at the
hands of Secretary of War Stimson.
. , Ever since President Roosevelt, In his
famous Rainy river and James river
dam bill veto messages, exposed the
fact that there Is a Water Pouer trust,
threatening to monopolize one of the
most valuable natural resources, Con
Cress and administrative officers have
been struggling with the problem of
protecting the public interest In powers.
The step that was announced today Is
believed to make a precedent which will
establish In all such cases In future
the rule that the public must be fully

In addition, the company Is to divide
Its profits with the Government. It
gets all up to S per cent on the Invest

elves the Government half; and above
S per cent gives the Government an In
creasing ratio. After thirty years on
this basuv. there is to be an entirely
new adjustment of relations between
Government and company; and from
that time, a like readjustment will be
made each ten years during the con
tinuance of the grant, which is fifty
This mutuallzatlon of Interests and
benefits Jiasbeenaccomplished only after
much negotiation. Until very recently,
the water power promoters flatly re
fused to make such terms, protesting
that the restrictions rendered it im
possible for them to finance their proj
ects. But when the Government stood
firm, they melted.
The first big accomplishment was in
- the matter of the Great Falls, Mont.,
project, which was handled by Secre
tary Fisher. The power company con
sented to the various conditions Im
posed by the Government, -as to control
of Tates, compensation, etc.
That settlement -established a prece
dent) for the lntcr-mountaln country,
and broke down the claim of the power
promoters that they couldn't get money
for Investment in their projects if the
Government insisted on limitations in
the public interest- Now comes Oe

convinced of 'fhls. they art coming in
to negotiate for the best, conditions pos
sible.. ' In annouqclngjlolay the Connecticut
" river agreement, and recommending to
Congress that the pending bill do now
pass. Secretary Stimson said:
. This case offers a good illustration
of what can be done -under the policy
of Insisting upon compensation for the
grant of these privileges. It has hltli
Tto been the policy of the nation to
allow these water powers to pass Into
private hands without getting anything
for them whatever. Only a jcar ago
this company sought the privileges
granted by this blll and expected to
get all of the profits from the water
power development for its own use. And
It would have done so had the same
policy been carried out which has ob
tained in the multitude of other similar
1)111 passed in former jears. Under the
policy now insisted upon by President
Taft, It turns out that they are not only
willing to make this large initial in
vestment for the benefit of the Govern
ment, but they are perpared to sharo
their profits beyond d per cent, with
the Government, under conditions w hlch
provide for accuracy and publicity In
deterinlng what those .profits shall be.
I think that evcrv public Interest U
satisfied by the bill, and the fact that
lt Is also satisfactory to those per
rons -who are about to embark their
money Into the enterprise Indicates that
a legitimate development of water power-
Is reconcilable with a proper protec

earnestly hope the bill will be speedily
