1 i i X. 11 V. . X HE DRAWS A LINE President Roosevelt Tetoes Bil Granting Water Eights And Sets Forth the Reasons for His Disapproval. WILL SIGN NO MORE Measures Giving Away Part Public Domain of Unless Grant Is Subject to Re strictions and Paid For. "Washington. Jan. 16 President Roose velt yesterday scent to congress a spe cial message vetoine a bill for the con struction of a dam across the James river, Missouri. The message in part follows: "To the House of Representatives: return herewith without my approval house hill 17707 tn authorize William Standish to construct a dam across the James river, in Stone county. Missouri and divert a portion of its waters through a runnel into the said river again, to create electric power. My reason for not Rienln? the bill are: "The bill gives to the grantee a val uable privilege, which by its very ture is monopolistic and does not con tain the conditions essential to protect the public interest." President Roosevelt auotes from a letter he wrote on March 13. 1908. to the senate committee on commerce pursuance of a policy declared in his message of February 26. 1908. In this letter the president said: "Through lack of foresight we have formed the habit of granting with out compensation extremely valuable rights, amounting to monopolies, on navigable streams and On the public domain. The re-purchase at great ex pense of water rights thus carelessly given away without return has already begun in the east and before long will be necessary in the west also. No rights involving water power should be granted to any corporation in perpet uity, but only for a length of time, suf ficient to allow them to conduct their business profitably. A reason able charge should of course be made for valuable rights and privile0v.s which they obtain from the national government. The values for which this charge is made will ul timately, through the natural growth and orderly development of our popu lation and industries, reach enormous amounts. A fair share of the increase should be safeguarded for the benefit of the people from whose labor-its springs. The proceeds thus secured, after the cost of administration and improve ment has been met, should naturally be devoted to the development of our Inland waterways. He Draws the Line. "Accordingly I have decided to sign no bills hereafter which do not provide specifically for the right to nx ana make a charge and for a definite limi tation in time of the rights conferred." The president also calls attention to his veto-message of -April 13, 1908. re turning a house bill to extend the time for the construction of a dam across Rainy river as follows: "An amendment to the present bill expressly authorizing the government to fix a limitation of time and impose a charge was proposed by the war department. "The letter, veto message, and amendment above referred to were considered by the senate committee on commerce, as appears by the commit tee's report on the present bill, and the proposed amendment was character ized by the committee as a 'new de parture from the policy heretofore pursued In respect to legislation au thorizing the construction of such dams.' "Their report sets forth an elabor ate argument intended to show that the federal government has no power to impose any charge whatever for such a privilege. "The fact that the proposed policy Is new is in itself no sufficient argu ment against its adoption. As we are met with new conditions of industry Charcoal Removes Stomach Poisons Pure Cliarooal Will Absorb One Hun dred Times Its Volume In Poisonous Gases. Charcoal was made famous by the old monks of Spain, who cured all manner of stomach, liver, blood and bowel troubles by this simple remedy. One little nervous Frenchman held forth its virtues before a famous con vention of European physicians and surgeons. Secheyron was his name. He was odd. quaint and very determined. .mis oroiners in meaicine laugnea at his claims. Thereupon he swallowed two - grains of strychnine, enough to kill three men, and ate some charcoal. The doctors thought him mad, but he did not even nave to go to bed. The char coal killed the effects of the strychnine and Secheyron was famous. Ever since that day physicians have used it. Run impure water through charcoal and you have a pure, oeucious drink. Bad breath, gastritis, bowel gases. torpid liver, impure Diood, etc.. give way berore tne action or charcoal. It is really a wonderful adjunct to nature " and is a most inexhaustible storehouse or neaith to the man or woman who suffers from gases or im purities of any kind. Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges are made of pure willow charcoal, sweetened to a palatable state with honey. Two or three of them cure an ordi nary case of bad breath. They should be used after every meal, especially if one's breath prone to be impure. These little lozenges have nothing to do with medicine. They are just sweet, fresh willow, burned to a nicety for charcoal making and fragrant honey, the product of the bee. Thus every in gredient comes to man from the lap of nature. The only secret lies in the Stuart process of compressing these simple substances into a hard tablet or loz enge, so that age. evaporation or decay may not assail their curative qualities. You may take as many of them as you wish and the more you take the quicker will you remove the effects of bad breath and impurities arising from a- decayed or decaying meal. They as sist digestion, purify the blood and help the intestines and bowels throw off all waste matter. Go to your druggist at once and buy a package of Stuart's Charcoal Loz enges, price 25 cents. You win soon be told by your friends that your breath is not so bad as it was. Send us your name and address and we will send you a trial package by mail free. Address F. A. Stuart Co., 200 Stuart Rldsr.. Marshall, Mich. . i seriouslv affecting the public welfare, we should not hesitate to adopt meas ures for the protection of the public merely because those measures are new. When the public welfare is in volved, congress should resolve any reasonable doubt as to its legislative power in favor of the people and against the seekers- for a special privi lege. Reason for His Action. "My reason for -believing that the federal government, in granting a li cense to dam a navigable river, has the power to impose any conditions it finds necessary to protect the public. Including a charge and a limitation of the time, is that its consent is legally essential to an enterprise or mis cnar- aeter. It follows tnat congress can impose conditions upon its consent, The president continues: . "Believing that the national gov ernment has this power, I am con vinced that Its power ought to be ex ercised. The people of the country are threatened dv a. monopoly iar more powerful, because in iar closer touch with theid domestic and indus trial life than anything known to our experience. A single generation will see the exhaustion of our natural re sources of oil and gas and such a rise in the price of coal as will make the price of electrically transmitted water power a controlling factor in trans portation, in manufacturing and in household lighting and heating. Our water power alone if fully developed and wisely used, is probably sufficient for our present transportation, indus trial, municipal and domestic needs. Most of It is undeveloped and is still in national or state control. An Act of Folly. To give away, without conditions, this, one of the greatest of our resour ces, would be an act of folly. If we are guilty of it, our children will be forced to pay an annual return upon a capi talization based upon the highest prices which 'the traffic will bear.' They will find themselves face to face with pow erful interests intrenched behind the doctrine of 'vested rights and strength ened by every defense which money can buy and the Ingenuity of able corpor ation lawyers can devise. Long before that time they may and very probably will have become a consolidated inter- st. controlled from the great financial centers, dictating the terms upon which the citizen can conduct his business or earn his livelihood and not amenable to the wholesome check of local opinion. Information collected by the bureau of corporation says the president, shows that 13 large concerns of which the General Electric company and the Westinghouse Electric and Manufactur- ng company are most important, now hold waterpower installations and ad vantageous power sites aggregating about 1,046,000 horse power, where the control by these concerns is practically admitted. This is a quantity equal to over 19 per cent of the total now in use. Further evidence, he says, makes It pro bable that these 13 concerns directly or indirectly control developed water power and advantageous power sites equal to more than 33 per cent of the total water power now in use. This astonishing consolidation, eays the president, "has taken place practi cally within the last five years. Movement Still Young. 'The movement is still in its infancy and unless it-is controlled the history of the oil industry will be repeated In the hydro-electric power industry, with results far more oppressive and disas trous for the people. "It is, in my opinion, relatively unim portant for us to know or not whether the promoters of this particular project are affiliated with any of these great corporations. If we make an uncondi ditlonal grant to this grantee our con trol over it ceases. He. or any purchas er from him will be free to sell nis rights to any one of them at pleasure. The time to attach conditions and pre vent monopoly is when a grant is made. Xhe great corporations are acting with foresight, singleness of purpose and vigor to control the water powers of the country. They pay no attention to state boundaries and are not inter ested in the constitutional law affect ing navigable streams except as it af fords what has been aptly calle'd a 'twilight zone,' where they may find a convenient refuge from any regulation whatever by the public whether through the national or the state gov ernments. It is significant that they are opposing the control of water pow er on the Desplaines river by the state of Illinois with equal vigor and with like arguments to those with which they oppose the national government pursuing the policy I advocate. Their attitude Is the same with reference to their projects upon the mountain streams of the west, where the juris diction of the federal government as the owner of the public lands and na tional forests is not open to question. They are demanding legislation for un conditional grants in perpetuity of land for reservoirs, conduits, power houses and transmission lines to replace the existing statute, which authorizes the administration officers of the govern ment to impose conditions to protect the public when any permit Is Issued. Several bills for that purpose are now pending in both houses. These bills were either drafted by representatives of the power companies or similar in effect to those thus drafted. Rainy River BUI. The president repeats his recom mendations made when he vetoed the Rainy river bill. This included acts, among others, providing that water grants should contain a provision mak ing it the duty of a designated omcial to annul the grant if the work is not carried out in accordance with the authority granted. Another provides for a license fee or charge which can in the future be adjusted so as to se cure control in the interests of the public. He now suggests another con dition, namely, that the license should be forfeited upon proof that the li censee has joined in any conspiracy or unlawful combination in restraint of trade as is provided for grants of coal lands in Alaska. The president in concluding says: "I will sign no bill granting a privi lege of this character which does not contain the substance of these condi tions. I consider myself bound, as far as exercise of my executive power will allow to do for the people, in preven tion of monopoly of their resources, what I believe they would do for them selves if they were in a position to act. Accordingly I shall insist upon the conditions mentioned above not only in acts which I sign, but also in passing upon plans for use of water power presented to the executive departments for action. "I inclose a letter from the commis sioner of corporations setting forth the results of his investigations and the evidence of the far reaching plans and operations of the General Electric company, the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing company and other large concerns, for consolidation of the water powers of the country under their control. "I esteem it my duty to use every endeavor to prevent this growing monopoly, the most threatening which has ever appeared from being fastened upon the people of this nation."

Harper's Bazar. - FARMERSMMHTS They Can Always Get Them in the law Says Associate Justice Benson in an Address. COMPLIMENTS COBUKN "Refused Senate to Teach World of Kansas Farming." Mrs. Kedzie-Jones Talks for the Sons and Daughters. Associate Justice A. W. Benson of tne Kansas supreme court, was on of the speakers at the closing session of the state board of agriculture last night. Justice Benson took for his subject, "The Farmer as Seen From the Bench." The address was very Interesting and the audience very at tentive. He spent considerable tim in relating some of his early Kansas experiences with both lawyers and farmers. Mr. Benson came to Kan sas in I860, a year before Kansas be came a state. Some of the incidents which were mentioned in this connec tlon were unique and typical only of a new community. Mr. Benson said that he had seen almost every class of farmers, dur ing his career of almost a half cen tury as a lawyer and jurist. He had at first regarded them as a class lower than the average but with the added years and the improvement o the Kansas farms, his opinion has greatly changed and now the Kansas farmers are looked up to not only by himself but by every other lawyer ip tne. state. In Kansas, Mr. Benson asserted the farmers can always get their rights a law. He considers the district court a most important office and agrees with President-elect Taft that a large number of cases end there. He showed the efficiency of the Kansas district court by noting the small number of reversals of district court decisions by the higher tribunals. Mr. Benson made a humorous comparison between the bench and the agricultural profession. "In this country there are five million far mers," he said, "but there are only twelve of them in congress, while there are 262 lawyers. You can see the people trust lawyers." Before he concluded Mr. Benson managed to pay the customary com pliment to Secretary Coburn. He referred to Mr. Coburn as "a man who turned down a seat in the United States senate in order to teach the world of Kansas farming." Another Interesting address was that of Mrs. Nellie Kedzie-Jones of Kalamazoo, Mich., who was at the head of the domestic science of the Kansas Agricultural college until a few years ago. Her subject, "The Great Granddaughters of Kansas Pioneers," was a plea for better edu cation facilities for the girls of Kan sas, and her many suggestions found ready listeners in the person of every member of the audience. Mrs. Kedzie-Jones Address. Her address follows in part: "A few days ago I went through th $70,000 building at Manhattan where Kansas girls are to be taught some things that will make life easier and happier for them, and my Kansas pride grew even greater because she is the first state in the union to give so good a building for girls alone. "Many a building has been erected for training and educating the boys, and as a mark of special favor, the girls have been allowed to share many of these buildings. But Kansas has set a pace the other states may do well to follow, in giving one building tor tne sDecial training of home-makers. "Kansas is 200 miles wide and 400 miles long, and one building won't go verv far toward providing for all her daughters but as the grain or mustard seed, this one- building will increase and multiply till all Kansas shall be doing her duty by all her daughters. Is Kansas doing ail sne can ror ner sons and daughters? She Is doing well I know, but I believe that well Is not enough: for after all we have heard about the corn and the cattle, the soil and the alfalfa, no crop means so much to the Kansas farmer as the crop of bovs and girls. Give them then, all the advantages you can. Send out from your centres to the borders of the state all the help lor tne young people juu can, and in the next generation you will see not only individuals that will give Kansas her full rank among tne states, but such homes as shall make her the envied of all nations. "It pays Kansas to do much for those great granddaughters. The debt the state owes to the pioneers will never be entirely paid; but as a payment of interest, the care of these girls of today, may be kept up. The more Kansas does the more she will receive in return. "Someone has asked how long must we be doing for these girls, and I want to answer in the words of Kansas men who were one day standing in a Philip pine river, holding a position, with the water to their waists, with their am munition in their caps, the word came down the line, 'How long can you hold the river? how long? how long?' and the cry came back, as from one man, 'Till we are mustered out.' "Keep on then, men of Kansas, do ing for these granddaughters of your pioneers, and they will pay you back by making such homes that Kansas will not only be 200 miles wide, 400 miles long, a thousand miles oeep, Dut win truly reach to the stars." During the evening Charles E. Sut ton of Lawrence, the newly elected president of the board was introduced Ideal food for children.

Plld'g uuu presiuea over - a portion of the meeting. - ... .. ' Music was furnished -for the even ing by Profs. A. Ghysbrecht, violinist ana n. uen tiaerynejc, pianist, both of whom recently came from Bel gium to this country as -instructors in the musical department of St Marys college at St. Marys. During; the eve ning they played "Suite En De Ma jeur," "Czardos," and the "Berceuse de Jocelyn." Their numbers were nigniy entertaining and greatly appre ciated. Greeting from "Farmer" Smith. A feature of the evening session, was a letter of greeting from A. W. "Farmer" Smith of McPherson, the newly elected vice president of . the board and a victim of the Copeland hotel disaster. Mr. Smith said his es cape from the fourth story of the "building, "was the most hazardous, heroic and perilous feat of his whole life." He said he would probably be confined for several weeks with his broken ankle, but that he would he at the next meeting a year hence, if he still lived as he hoped would be the case. Mr. Smith evidently considers his escape quite hazardous when he used the adjective in the superfluous form, as he spent fifteen months in Andersonville prison during the civil war, and this must have been pretty bad even if it wasn't his "most hazard ous"feat. WOLVES OX THE INCREASE. Reno County Pays for More Scalps as the Years Go By. Hutchinson. Kan., Jan. 16. Reno county has paid bounty upon nine hundred and twenty-one coyotes killed in the county during the last three years. Contrary to the popular belief the figures show that in spite of the fact that the county is becoming more thickly settled, the coyotes are in creasing in numbers every year, or at least more are being killed. The re port shows that 214 were killed in 1906: 313 in 1907, and 394 in 1908. This increase is -also borne out by reports from the farmers and hunters of the county who say that there are more ot tne animals in the county this year than ever berore. PrSHIN'G ELECTRIC LINE. A Mortgage of $12,000,000 Recorded at Lawrence, by Laming. Lawrence, Kan.,' Jan. 16.

It will have to be recorded in Mont gomery, Labette, Neosho, Wilson Allen, Anderson, Franklin, Wyandotte, Leavenw6rth, Jefferson and Shawnee counties, through which the proposed electric road will run. Mr. Laming says the work on the road will begin this spring. " -f CLAY CENTER'S . POSTOFFICE. Site Selected and Building Will Be Erected Soon. Clay Center,' Kan.," Jan. 16. Senator Curtis wired from Washington today that the Rothman corner at Court and Sixth streets had been selected as the site for the new postoffice building for which $65,000 was appropriated at the last session or" congress. The amount of the purchase price Is $5,000. The lots are 138 by 140 feet and are at the northeast corner of the court house square. ', There were six other sites offered ranging1 in price from $6,000 to $9,000. The new site is one and a half blocks from the present postoffice. TO BUILD $75,000 CHURCH. Presbyterians of Wichita to Have a New Meeting Place. Wichita, Kan., Jan. 16. A beautiful new church building, costing about $75,000, will be built this spring by the congregation, of the First Presbyterian church. The committee on purchasing grounds made its report .at a meeting of the men of the church. It reported that it could purchase the site for $10,500 if the deal was closed at once. The committee was instructed to buy the ground. OPPOSED BY LABOR. Kecfe Encounters Difficulties in Secur ing Confirmation. Washington, Jan. 16. Considerable opposition to the confirmation of Daniel J. Keefe of Michigan, who-was nominated by the president on December 1, to succeed the late Frank Sargent as commissioner general of immigration, has developed in the senate under the leadership of Mr. Gore of Oklahoma. The objection to confirmation advanced by Mr. Gore is the fact that a report has been made to him by certain labor leaders that Mr. Keefe received the appointment as a reward for breaking with President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor, during the re cent presidential campaign. Some labor leaders have gone so far aa to send letters to members of con gress, charging that Mr. Keefe, as a prominent labor leader himself has been a traitor to the cause of labor. Several efforts have been made by Senator Dillingham, chairman of the committee on immigration, to obtain action on this nomination in com mittee, but thus far he has failed, senator Gore has given notice of a desire to appear before the immigra tion committee and to argue his bjections to Keefe's confirmation. .

COBURHSALARY The Farmers Ask That It Be Doubled. Because of His Invaluable and Unrequited Service. UNANIMOUS ABOUT IT. They Urge Appropriation for a State Fair. They Also Want Good Roads and "Want Them Bad." 11 the state legislature does not raise the salary of F. D. Coburn, the efficient secretary of the state board of agriculture, to $5,000 per year, it will not be because the farmers of the state are not for it. Among the resolutions which were adopted at the annual session of the board of agricul ture which closed last night, one to this effect was unanimously adopted And as the farmers of the state are in favor of giving Mr. Coburn more pay it might as well be done. The agricultural class represents sixty-five per cent .of the total population. And the farmers are a unit in demanding a better salary for the man whose un tiring work adds to their revenues. The Coburn Resolution. The resolution which favors an in crease in salary for Mr. Coburn fol lows: 'Whereas, our esteemed secretary, through his untiring efforts and entire devotion to the work of promoting, upbuilding and exploiting the agricul tural and other resources of our great state, has secured for Kansas a world-wide recognition, and "Whereas, he has repeatedly and of ten refused positions offering much more thah his present compensation, and "Whereas, the salary allowed him by the state is far from commensurate with his invaluable services, there fore be it "Resolved, by the Kansas state board of agriculture, and the dele gates of the state in attendance, as sembled in its thirty-eighth annual meeting, that It respectfully urge upon the present legislature, as an acknowledgment of his worth to the state, to Increase the salary of F. D. Coburn, secretary of this board, from $2,500 to $5,000 per annum." There were in the neighborhood of one hundred farmers and stock raisers at the meeting in which the resolutions were adopted late Friday afternoon. Not a single opinion, dis senting from the resolution recom mending more pay for Mr. Coburn, was heard, but on. the other hand every member and delegate approved it most heartily. Enthusiastic for State Fair. Another resolution of importance was one relating to a state fair -.This resolution - recommeded in a single resolution recommended in a single for the establishment of a state fair for Kansas. The resolution might have stated for the benefit of Topeka people tnat the lair be held here, or it might have said In either Wichita or Hutchinson, but it did not. The opinion prevailing among the mem bers was that a fair is absolutely necessary and that it. should be worked for, regardless of the place where it should be held. The sen timent seemed to be to provide for the place later. There were but few other resolutions adopted. One recommended that all regents of the State Agricultural col lege be men who are closely identi fied with the agricultural and live stock interests of the state. Another resolution endorsed the recommendations of Governor Stubbs as expressed in his message to the leg islature, relative to the physical valua tion of railroads and the control of all public service corporations. The plan of establishing local ex periment stations on the county farms of the state, under tne direction of the agricultural college and of authorizing the county boards of commissioners by law to appropriate any amount not to exceed $300 a year to carry out this plan of local investigation work, was ncorporated in the resolutions. The holding of local short courses through out the state by the agricultural col lege after the plan in vogue in Iowa, was also favored. They Want Good Roads. The resolutions said nothing regard ing the good roads movement, which is one of Governor Stubbs" favorite hobbies. In his address of welcome before the board Wednesday night Governor Stubbs devoted a major portion of his time to a presentation of his views on the question. . How ever, when the matter was called to the attention of one of the officials of the board after the meeting was over, he gave it as his opinion that it was merely an oversight. . And it undoubt edly was only an oversight, for the farmers have freely during the session of the board just closed voiced their approval of Governor Stubbs idea per taining to good roads. At the evening session another reso lution was adopted, relative to the es cape of two of the leading members of the board, A. W. Smith and H. A. Row land, from the Copeland hotel fire of Thursday morning, and it was deemed "an act of an all wise Providence." The resolution was introduced by Tom Hubbard of Sumner county, who also received some injuries in the fire. In addition to the officers elected late Friday afternoon, the names of which were printed in the State Jour nal Friday evening, the following five members of the board were elected for a term of two years: A. L. Sponsler, Hutchinson; George W. Glide, Atcni- son;'Edwin Taylor, Edwardsville: O. O. Wolf, Ottawa, and J. W. Robinson, ElDorado.
