Subject of Communication Roose
velt Honorary Officer.
The Argus is in receipt of an inter
esting communication from President
Walter L. Fisher or the Conservative
League of America, showing the con
tradictory attitudes of M. J. McEniry
and Jarae9 McKinney toward the move
ment for the conservation of the nat
ural resources of the country. The
communication states that Mr. McEniry
has signified his full approval of the
principles of the league, while Con
gressman McKinney has ignored the
league's request for his approval.
President Roosevelt Is the honorary
president of the league; William J.
Bryan 1h the honorary vice president,
and William II. Tct't is also an hon
orary vice president. The movement
Is one of such great importance that
it seems unusual that Congressman
McKinney should withhold his ap
proval of it.
Full to dire Aunrovnl.
The letter received by The Argus is
Chicago, Oct. 2S. Editor The Argus,
Hock Island, 111.: Your attention has,
no doubt, been directed to the fact
that the Conservation League of Amer
ica is seeking to secure the cooperation
of the members of congress and of the
various state legislatures. To this end
it has requested candidates for election
to these bodies to sign the following
declaration of approval:
"I approve of the statement of prin
ciples of the Conservation League of
America, and will give these principles
my Influence and active support."
It affords us pleasure to advise you
that this declaration has been signed
by the democratic candidate for con
gress in your district. M. J. McEniry.
We regret, however, that no reply
has yet been received from the repub
lican candidate, James McKinney.
If you can assist us in securing his
assurance of cooperation, it will be of
material assistance to the conservation
movement, in which you are no doubt
