SECOND CONFERENCE OF GOV
ERNORS IN WASHINGTON.
The much talkcd-of inventory of
the Nation's resources is now prac
tically completed. To consider the
material it has brought together the
National Conservation Commission
has just announced its first full mcct-
ing for Tuesday, December 1, in
Washington. At that meeting the
I first steps will be taken toward put
ting into tangible shape the results of
the six months' hard work on taking
stock of the country's waters, for
ests, lands, and minerals.
One week later, after the Commis-
sion has gone over the inventory, it
will hold a joint meeting in Washing
ton with the Governors of the States
and Territories, or their representa
tives. At this meeting the inventory
I will be further discussed and the rc-
, port which the President has rcqucst-
Icd the Commission to make to him
by January 1, will be formulated.
With less than six months in which
to make the inventory, the four
branches into which the Commission
is divided, aided by the co-operation
of the Government departments, have
brought together what is probably the
imost useful collection of facts about
the material things on which national
industry and progress are l)ascd that
has ever been assembled at one time.
1 Reports presenting these facts and
pointing out their significance have
j been prepared. These reports, sum
marized and indexed, will be submit
ted to the Commission at its coming
ijeetjng. t , ,
'AU'through-thc summer general in-
tcrcst in the work and object of the
Conservation Commission has been
growing. The public is now well
lasted on a subject of which only a
few specialists had knowledge at the
time of the Conference of Governors
and experts at the White House, in
May.
The Governors carried the. spirit of
the conference home with them to
their own people, and have kept things
moving ever since by appointing State
Commissions to study local problems,
by writing and speaking upon the sub
ject of conservation, and by keeping
in close and helpful touch with the
National Commission. They arc ready
to take part in the approaching joint
meeting. The bare announcement
that it had been set for December 8
resulted in a number of acceptances
before the formal invitation of the
Commission .had even got into the
mails.
When the conservation movement
was started, specific information about
the actual state of our resources was
partly wanting, partly inaccessible.
Certain facts were broadly known. It
was at least unquestionable that our
resources had been wastcfully used,
and that some of them, notably the
mines, were sure in time to be com
pletely exhausted, while others, for
example the forests, could still be
kept perpetually useful by right man
agement. The first work was to get
the facts, to show exactly what the
situation was and how it could be im
proved by measures that would work.
Without an inventory of the resources
which should show the present con
dition of the resources and the way
to develop them to the best advant
age, conservation was in danger of
staying up in the air.
But the work is now practically
done. The facts arc there, in dollars
and -cents, tons of coal, board feet of
timber, acre-feet and horse-power of
water, acres of land. And the pos
sible reform measures have been
wcighcth. The final report to the
President will be the necessary sup
plement to the addressed at the White
House Conference. The note of
these addresses was a note of warn
ing. The report is expected to show
that the warning must be heeded if
the exhaustion of natural resources is
not, one day, to impoverish the na
tion, and it will also undoubtedly
biring out.hojv the country's resources
1 ' i 1 . 1 .,
can be developed so as to last the
longest possible time and serve the
greatest good of the people.

MORE THAN THEY WANTED.
On his trip homeward by trolley a
tired business man was much annoyed
by the conduct of three middle-aged
ladies who stood hear him. They
were evidently just returning from a
summer tour. All the scats in the
car were occupied, Ibut they seemed
determined that he should offer one
of them his seat.
He screened himself behind his pa
per and listened to plainly audible re
marks about the decline of gallantry
in the present age. This grated on
his nerves, so he arose, and with a
profound bow, addressed the three.
"Will the oldest of you ladies lion
or me by accepting my place?"
Whereupon they became interested
in the advertisements over the win
dows, and the man triumphantly re
sumed his scat.
THE ABSENT-MINDED PRO
FESSOR. Among seven distinguished men
who were to speak at the opening ex
ercises of a new school was a profes
sor well known for his lapses of mem
ory. But his speech was clear that
night, and as he seated himself his
loving wife felt that he had fully
earned the burst of applause that fol
lowed, and she clapped her little
hands enthusiastically. Then her
checks crimsoned.
"Did you see anything amusing
about the close of my address, my
dear?" asked the Professor as they
started for home. "It seemed as if I
heard sounds suggestive of merri
ment about me."
"Well, dear," said she, "of all the
people who applauded your address,
you clapped the loudest and longest."
PUBLIC SPEAKERS TAKE NO
TICE. A well Known dramatist was dis
cussing a rather tiresome dnama.
"It was such a drama," he said,
"that a French playwright read the
other day before a committee of the
.French S6citt,onComcdy A9 the H
author p.oddcd through his second H
act he heard an odd sound, and looked H
up, to sec t& man asleep and breathing M
heavily. He was greatly annoyed. M
"'Monsieur,' he .said, 'monsieur, H
wake up. Please remember, mon- M
sicur, that I am reading this play to H
the committee in order to get its H
opinion. How can a man who is H
asleep give an opinion?"' H
"'How?' said the drowsy one with H
a yawn. 'Easily enough. Sleep is an H
opinion.' " H
