Thinks Canada and Central
and South America Should
Join in the Plan.
While States and Nation
Contest Over "Rights,"
Wrong Goes On, He Says.
St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 6. Colonel The
odore Roosevelt today delivered his
much talked of conservation speech, be
fore the National Conservation con
gress which is holding its second an
nual meeting- in this city.
He reiterated his well known state
ments on the necessity of .conserving
our natural resources, and criticised the
individuals who misrepresented the
movement in order to prevent its
He urged the speedy development of
our waterways, especially that between
the3reat Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico,
but soundod a warning against letting
the lailroads get control of these de-
v eloi ed waterways. j
"I oelieve." aid the colonel, "that the
railways should be prohibited from ,
owning, controling or carrying any
interest in the boat lines on our rivers,
unless under the strictest regulation
of the interstate commerce commission,
so that the shippers interests may oe
Colonel Roosevelt reviewed the his
tory of the conservation movement and
told of the hard fight to get it under
way, and then warned his hearers
against "the men who come to this con
erress, ostenslvely as disinterested citi
zens, but actually as the paifL agents i
of the "special Interests.
The colonel's speech follows:
"America's reputation for efficiency J
stands deservedly high throughout the
world. We are efficient probably to
the full limit that any nation can attain
by the methods hitherto used. There
is great reason to be proud of our
achievements, and yet no reason to be
lieve that we cannot excel our past.
Through a practically unrestrained in
dividualism, we have reached a pitch
of literally unexampled material pros
perity; although the distribution of "this
prosperity leaves much to be desired

dealing. But we have not only allowed i adopted and tabled subject to ca"
the individual a free hand, which was j Caves's substitute for the lae"
in the main right: we have also allowed resolution concerning the Paj ne tai-11
great corporations to act as though
they were individuals, and to exercise
therights of individuals, in addition to
using the vast combined power of high
organization and enormous wealth for
their own adantage.
Reckless Private Use.
The method of reckless and uncon-
troled private use and waste has done
for us all the good it ever can, and it j
is time to put an end to it before It
uoes all tne evil it easily may. we
have passed the time when heedless
waste and destruction, and arrogant
monopoly, are any longer permissible.
Henceforth we must seek national effi
ciency by a now and a better way, by
the way of the orderly development and
use, coupled with the preservation, of
our natural resources, by making the
most of what we have for the benefit
of all of us, instead of leaving the
sources of material prosperity open to
"One of the greatest of our conserva
tion problems is the wise and prompt
development and use of the waterways
of this nation. The project for a great
trunk waterway, an arm of the sea, ex
tending from the Gulf of Mexico to the
Great Lakes, should not be abandoned.
the Lakes to the' Gulf Deep waterway, i
and the development of the rivers j
which flow into it, should be pushed to
completion vigorously without delay.
Railways Control "Wharves.
"In nearly every river city from St.
Paul to the gulf the waterfront is con
troled by the railways. Nearly every
artificial waterway in the United
States, either directly or indirectly, is
under the same control. It goes with
out saying that (unless the people pre
vent it in advance) the railways will

In his opening address Mr. Humphreys definitely stated that large quan

parts of the body in the cellar of the Crippen home, and that evidences of an
illegal operation were also detected.
The popular feeling toward Crippen continues hitter because of tiie hid

I believe the railroads should" be prohibited from owning, controlling or
carrying any interest in the boat lines on our rivers.
The method of reckless and uncontrolled private uses and waste has
done for us all the good it ever can and it is time to put an end to it.
One of the virtues Americans most need is thrift As a nation, we
h.3ve not yet learned to economize.
The idea, widely circulated, of late, that conservation means locking
up the natural resources for the exclusive use of future generations, is
What this country needs is what every free country must set before It
as the great goal towards which it works an equal opportunity for life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every one of its citizens.
Unless the governments of all the American republics, including our
own enact in time such laws as will both protect their. natural wealth and
promote their legitimate and reasonable development, future generations
will owe their misfortunes to us of today.

persistently did the crowd cheer him.

turned to the question of drainage, de

Where land to be drained lay entirely
within a state, he said it might be well
for the time for the states to take con

ho said, should be improved by the fed

would be hotter if the state swamp
lands be ceded back to the general
government that it might do the drain

Speaking of forestry, he declared,
amid tremendous cheering, that after
winning so much in the fight for con

had fought for they had themselves
only to blame. "But," he added, "wa
are not going to do it. It has been
shown," he said, "that states in the
east could not do the work as well, as
the national government and we are
now getting the national government
to take these lands back and do th
work. When we are now doing that in
the east it seems to me the wildest
folly to ask us in the wet to repeal
the same blunders that are now being
