i Statutory Commissiou Favored.
"Fifth. The creation of a statutory i
commission of nine members, composed of j
two senators, two representatives, one en- 1
gineer front the army corps and one from
civil life, two men of practical knowledge
of transportation by water and by rail
and one other citizen, to study the waterways
of this country and such foreign
countries as they deem advisable,
and suggest to Congress In a full and de- I
tailed report a comprehensive plan and j
policy for Improving oiir waterways. It is j
a fact that several of th^ Knropean ooun- |
tries and the Dominion of Canada are
much more advanced than the 1'nited
States in the improvement of their navigable
waters, and If we find it necessary
from time to time to appoint commissions
to study the isthmian canal, the tariff,
finance, the postal and other questions it
is certainly eminently proper that a commission
he appointed to study this most
important subject of water transportation.
Unfair Discrimination.

you know who have studied the subject
that there are very many instances where
railroads have reduced- the charges at
water points so low tnat boats could not
live, recouping their losses by high rates
at interior points equidistant, or less distant.
from the place of origin of the
freight. I'nless we intend to protect our
watercourses from this unfair discrimination.
as the wise people of Germany
have done in regard to their rivers and
canals, we had better pause now and
cease to spend money on them.
"Seventh: That as a condition precedent
to future improvements on any watercourse
or harbor proper terminal facilities
be provided by the municipality,
the state or the nation for the common
use on equal terms of all carriers."

j Vice President for Bond Issue.
, In extending to the congress a cordial
welcome to the city of Washington Vice
President Fairbanks said it was perfectly
obvious that the improvement of our
waterways had not kept abreast of our
industrial needs and our national progress.
The time lias arrived, he said, when :
we must give to the subject of securing
adequate transportation facilities at a
minimum of cost intelligent and effective
consideration.
In discussing the cost of improving
American waterways. Iho Vice President
said that as much of the benefit to be derived
from the expenditures would be for
the future, a reasonable share of the
amount should be provided for by a bond
luox/. cn-v n CJ inet lt> <i tiH nctll i t o 1 tl 1' <1 i U_
lorui', ru ?xr? jur'H,* aim i|uun *j? * tv_r v??n I
tribute the burden among all the beneficiaries
of the expenditure, lie believed !
that the importance and magnitude of the
work of improving the waterways were
so exceptional as t<? justify the people in
anticipating future income by a reasonable
bond issue.
Enlightened Consideration Needed.
The Vice 1'resident said that v\ bile the
work of improving river navigation could
not be done all at once, the rate of progress
should be determined by an enlightened
consideration of all the facts bearing
upon each project. While there might
be a wide divergence of individual opinion
as to tlie relative importance of vaj
rious projects, lie had no doubt a com,
mon ground of action might V>c found.
The success of so vast an undertaking, in
his judgment, would depend upon the dissemination
of accurate information as
to the need and the cost of the work and
upon tlie arousing of intelligent interest
in it among the people.
Conductive to National Unity.
Waterway development as a factor in
the growth of national unity was the
theme chosen by W. L). Lyman of Walla
Walla. Washington. He declared lhat
"California and Massachusetts go arm in
arm to I'ncle Sam to ask the common
boon of harbor improvement and that
those of the far west find the closest bond
of sympathy with tljose of the Ohio river
region in calling upon Congress to lock
the rivers and thereby unlock commerce."
He asserted that wo have reached tinpoint
of a national demand for a great
and coherent system of waterway improvement.
that this congress is the child
and the voice of that sentiment.
Great Value of Canals.
Ambassador Bryce said that when he
was president of the board of trade ia
government bureau> in Knglaiid "thirteen
years ago "no was about to start a comprehensive
investigation of waterways
when his government went out of office.
| This was taken up about three years ago
I by the existing government, and the re1
runt lumM ?nnn hf? ffiVfiino nut
only England. but the continent.
Ho said that there were f>ut three nuvi!
gable rivers* of importance in K.igland,
I the Thames to f^ondon, the t'lydc to tllasI
kow and tlie Severn and Avon t<> Bristol.
I These were short stretches, hot had to
i be kept up bv a great deal of expensive
| dredging.
As to canals, he said that careful investigation
convinced him that they were
not enemies of the railroads, but rather
valuable allies. The immense amount
of passenger traffic on the English railroads
made the transportation of heavy
fetght difficult and expensive, and the
canals were valuable adjuncts in relieving
tills congestion.
Traffic on the Rhine.
The ambassador continued:
"I need hardly say that the circumstances
of continental Kurope afford more
in the way of practical suggestions to you
than England can supply, and I would
specially recommend to you the study of
the splendid system of internal navigation.
which has been created in tiermany.
The Rhine now carries an enormous
traffic, although on each side of it
there run trunk lines of railroad which
are also doing a vast business.
"Nature has given you, gentlemen, a
larger river system than exists anywhere
else in the world, except in the tropical I
forests of South \merica; arid in consid!
ering the great plans to which your ati
tent ion is now being directed you will

your country possesses."

J REPORTS MADE ON FORESTS ]
AND MINING.
Following up. the work thai was begun
Ht the Helaseo Theater yesterday, the
conservation commission met in Hie red
room of the Willard today t?> hear the
general report of its work, which is now* |
bring given to the public for the first JHH
time. It was an important gathering, in- j |
eluding the governors of thirty state* ;;;
who had attended the meeting of the ;;;
joint commission yesterday. ; *
The meeting was presided over by tlif- j1
ford Pinchot, chairman of the eninmission.
The general report of the commls
sion was read by ex-Gov. Blanchard of j j
Ixiulslana, who covered in a general way
the four major sections of the commls- :
slon's investigations, lands, w aters, min- j: j
erals and forests. The report was not a ;;;
recommendation for any specltic line of ;;;
action, hut a statement of the commls- ;;;
sion's findings for the Information of the !!:
President and Congress.
Gov. Blanchard had some startling j;;;
tacts to communicate: He said in relation J;;; f
; to forests that but a quarter of the area j;::
of the country was now forest clad, i III
whereas formerly forests covered more , j j.
than half. "\Ye were wasting two-thirds ;;
of tlie timber that was cut. Of 1.000 l'eet j;;; ti
ut from the forests not 3.V? found its):;:
way into commerce. The wa.ste com- i!!!
menced at the butt of tiie tree and ron-: j > > '
tinned through the logging camp, the mill |;;;
and into the factory. j::: ]
T>i? firn u :i tint lipp sprioils fUO- i ZX
jot. This could he stopped, the report
said, iit an expenditure of one-fifth of I<
the value of the wood annually destroyed. J *?
It was impossible either for the state, the |
federal government or the private owner :z
to rare for reforestation and tire protee- 2
t! ?n as it s1m?uI?1 be done, hut by eo-opera- : J J\
ion between the three the waste could
be stopped afld the forests renewed. I
The eountrv. he said, was now cutting 2 ^
three times as much wood annually as the
forests reproduced, but by a judicious iZ
system of replanting and scientific \* a
methods of cutting the forests could he J *
made to viehl more wood than was an- :2
nually being: taken from them. !j| ^
Forest Taxation System Bad. if
The report said that the forests were ;i
very injudiciously dealt with in the <f
matter of taxation. They were taxed
on the standing timber and the pro- Z
printers wanted to get their money out j;
of them by clearing the land. A much ?
more sensible \\4ay. Gov. Rlanchnrd 2 '1
said, would be to tax the timber cut * ]-;
and remit the taxation altogether on j! t
the standing trees. It was better to |; I ^
derive a small revenue from the forests ; | ?
for all time than to get a larger rev- : J
nue for a while and then have it cease:: |
altogether.
The damage that had been so farjj?
done to the forests was not irreparable. |;$ 1
If prompt action were taken they could :Z
be conserved and used for all time. :2
Rut even at that the country would 2
have to pay a price for .its prodigality ||
and tiie country would feel the short- <
age of timber for the next twenty;live if 11
years. ; J
The mineral resources of the country ;?
were dealt with in the same way, as well 2
as the lamls. so much of which had al-jlj
ready been alienated by the government, j j
Tii,,rf. irac iioc.l nf n thoronsrh read lust- i ft
infill of the hind laws, and especially of | fi
the stone and timber act. i g
On the subject of water 1he report | g
showed the Immense amount of rainfall ZZ
area over the United States, amounting g
to ten Mississippi rivers in one. Part ot g
t>iiis rainfall was evaporated, part found g
its way to the sea and part was cut off by 8
use for municipalities, power uses and g
Irrigation. The report stated that only in j g
irrigation was the water used to anything , g
like tiie extent it might tie. For navlga- ! g
tion. power and municipal use the vast ( H
aggregate of waters was hardly touched. | g
Section reports followed the general re- i g
port. That for the minerals of the , g
country was read by Senator Flint of Ual- 1 g
ifornia. This was followed by a general < 8
discussion, participated in by tile gov-; xx
ernors and others. 8
Senator Flint said that enough natural 8
gas coming out of the earth today was ||
wasted to light all the cities of over g
lnO.OOO inhabitants In the country. This g
entire waste could he controlled by laws g
similar to those now prevailing in Indiana. 8
The waste in coal mining was equivalent g
to about one-half of the product mined? g
that is to say, in 1007 to 240,000,1100 tons. a...
The aggregate of waste in all mineral *****
products for the past year amounted to about
$1,000,000 per day.
Loss of Life in Mines.
The loss of life is the coal mines alone M
last .tear was 3.000, with 7.O00 more in- "
jured. This was from, two to four times
as great as the record in any other country
in the world, taken on the basis of i Pis
each 1.0011 men employed.
There is still an area of about 500,000
square miles of coal In the country. This
area contains, roughly, about 1.400,u00.iiOO.OOu
tons. But the coal fields have
practically all been discovered, and it is
not likely that this area will be added to TW
1 per cent.
The supply of high-grade Iron ore available
is about 3.MO.0>Mi.u0n tons, and ?Tr the
low-grade ores, such as are not available "Ad
uniler present economic conditions, alt. OCU.t'Ott.Otxt
tons. There is at the present
| rate of consumption about enough iron
to last to the middle of the present century.
and enough coal to last to the mid- p-r-n
die of the next century. (jlB
The supply of copper, lead and zinc was
less definitely known, but there was about
enough to last to I he end of the present
century. 111111
The report on the land section. Senator
Knute Nelson, ehairman. was read at,
the afternon session. This was followed
by a general discussion.

James Rrycc. the Rritish ambassador. Shar
appeared before the conference yesterday "Tlis
and made a short talk. He was greeted "
with cheers. Mr. Bryce spoke particularly I1.1, 1
of the difference tiiat he had found in the * ..^J!
de.velorinient of the south now and when n,
he was here sixteen years ago. Up added "j"'1.
that he was glad to see the representatives I1.?,?

Dr. Kdwin- Alderman, president of the

portant address before the congress last j
night on the work of sour hern education. ? .
He said that education and commercial *?' /
development went hand in hand. That wo
yon could not trust a man till you had

of the south depended on proper academic ! '
