SOUNDS WARNING NOTE.
Former Chief Forester Makes Public
Statement.-Water Power Sites
and Coal Lands.
Washington, Jan. 13.-"The con
servation of natural resources and
the conservation of popular govern
n3ent are both at stake. The one
ieeds conservation no less than the
This statement epitomizes the for
mal annourkement made public to
xight by Gifford Pinchot, who was
recently remored as chief of the for
est service. The former official de
elares the great moral issue that now
faces the country is not the loss of
latiral resources,~so much as wheth
er special interests or the people shall
rule. The statement, in part is as
"At this time I have no comment
to make on recent events. Whether
in or out of the gevernment service,
I propose to stay in the fight fox
conservation and equal opportunity.
Every movement and measure, from
whatever source, that tends to ad
vance conservation and promote
government by men for human wel
fare I shall try to help. Every move
ment and measure, from whatevex
source, that hinders conservation
and promises government by money
for profit I shall endeavor to oppose
The supreme test of movements and
measures is the welfare of the plain
people. . I am as ready to support
the Administration when it moves
toward this paramount end as I am
to oppose it when it moves away."
Mr. Pinchot expressed his pro
found regret at leaving the forest
service and pays tribute to the faith
fulness and high huality of service
rendered by the men with whom he
worked. Out of the work of the
forest service, he proceeds, grew the
"To-day that movement expresses
on< of our'deepest national convic
tion," he says, "and the prineipleE
f or which it stands are reecived as
axiomatic. It is only the executioi
of them which remains in doubt."
Mr. Pincht then traced the ree
ommenda.tions of -the conference or
conservation at the White House in
May, 1908, the subsequent creation
of the national -conservation commis
sioni, which he says together withb
President Roosevelt's message to
Congress on the subject, set. forth a
comprehensive, definite scheme for
the conservation of our naltural re
sures-which he applauds\ and en
dorses. Then. he proceeded:
*"At this critical period, whei
the goal was in sight, enemies of
enservation in Congress not only
succeeded in preventiiig an appropri'
ation with whieh to pursue the work
but attempted to forbid its progress
by the Tawney amendment to the
last sundry civil bill Thereupon the
work of the national conservation
commission was stopped.
"The recommendations of the
commision still wait for action. All
wise men will agree that the situa
tion is serious. The Tawney amend
nient was more than a mistake-it
was a deliberate betrayal of the fu-.
ture. Thie dangers which confront
he cons'ervation movement to-day
must be met by positive action it
Congress. No action will be equiv
let to bad action and will have
the same results.
Early Action Necessary.
"Unless Congress aetls the water
powers will pass into 'the hands of
special interests without charge and
without limit of 'time. So with the
phospate deposits on public lands,
when the withdrawals whieh now pro.
tet them are removed. So wth the
enormously valuable coal deposits in
Alaska, which the present law would
sell for $10 per acre.
-"The danger of bad legislation is
io less serious. The special interests
must no longer be allowed to take
what they would choose out of the
gret property of all the people.
Thse who stand pu,blie lands steal
homes from men and women who
need -them. Congress can stop the
pillage, or Congress can let it go on.
"In the absence of proper action
two great conservation plans for the
public welfare may fail.- The first is
th control of water powers on navi
gable streams in the public interest.
The second is the construction of the
deeper waterways from the Great
Lakes to the Gulf.
"The unanimous opinion of the
Mississippi valley recognizes this wa
terway as a commercial necessity. It
believes with reason that the cost,.
whih is already officially known.
will be trivial when compared with
the benefits conferred. Transporta
tion facilities create traffic. Fail
ueto develop our- waterways. to
eether with adequate terminals anti
coecmitionl by 4-ail, leaves to the
transportation in the Mississippi val
ley.; The Remedy.
Mr. Pinchot then calls upon ;every
"man of good will'' to make it clear
to his Representatives in Congress
'his firm intention to hold them re-,
sponsible personally for safeguarding
the "rights and property of the peo
ple.'" In such action, says Mr. Pin
P-hot, lies the remedy.
"Thle first immediate danger is
that the waterways will be lost; the
second -that the coal lands will be
lost,'" the statement concludes.
"But the specific danger of pub
lie loss are merely parts of the great
issue between the special interests
and the rest of us. That issue is
whether this country shall be man
aged by men for human welfare or
by money for profit.
"It is a tremendous moral issue,
far greater than any man's personal
feelings or personal fortunes. It
lies betwen the people and their rep- I
resentatives on one si-de and the in
terests and their representatives on
the other; between progress and re
action: between sp(2ia. privtilege4
