Striking evidence of this new evolu

than coal: grept peisonalities con
trolliug the political policies of the
world were but mouthpieces of na
tional industry demanding coal: prime
ministers found themselves bargaie
ing with owners of coal, even with
miners of coal.
Coal, rather than any political
clause of the Treaty of Versailles, was
the theme of the great fpm confer
ence; it was and is khe great prob
lem of upset IEurope.
Likewise, our own problems are
largely problems of mechanical power;
coal, oil, and other sources of energy.
These problems are beosipg acute,

cated when our President was con
strained to reverse an ancient prac
tice and belatedly gave his approval
to the Federal water power act, an
act which was designed to put the
work for us tens of millions of horse
power, but which unfortunately is
likely to fall short of such sanguine
Coal is the great source- of our de
veloped power. We have some 26,
000,000 steam engine horsepower in
use in this country-much of it ip
wasteful use, as in the locomotive en
gine --and we have some 6,000,000
horse-power generated from water
power. We are suffering from an
acute shortage of power.
We have not enough to meet,our
present plant requirements and none
for industrial expansion. We need
many millions more. Let us not con
Unue to deceive ourselves. -This con
dition cannot be remedied ,by politi
cal preachment, nor by mere manipu
lation or even improvement of things
as they are. We are face to face with
an actual shortage of coal, an actual
shgrtage of labor at the mines, an
actual shortage of production, and
an actual shortage of transportation.
It may be well to remember that
about one-third of all our transpor
tation is taken up in hauling the coal
that we now use. The water' power

by supplementing, and in many activ
ities superseding, our coal power by
hydro-electric.- energy. It is estimated
that some 50,000;00 horsepower lies
latent in our rivers, almost twice as
mbch as all the power we now have
in use. If this act works, if It har
nesses our rivers and enables us to
develop a substantial quantity of the
power now going to waste that is
feasible of development under help
ful legislation, the result must be of
immeasurable benefit to this nation.
Our industries will expind. and
multiply, our railroads be freed for our
better service, the navigation of our
rivers improved, our agriculture
stimulated through cheaper fertilisers,
the nitrate of which will be drawn
from the air through hydro-electric
methods, out-of-the-way localities
opened up, our limited quantity of
coal conserved and put to better td&
and, incidentally, we of. the comMen
public may hope to be released to's
comforting degree from the uppdr aad
nether millstones of the mine opera
tor and the miner.
We have a waiter power act at last.
The character of all legislation is
largely determined by pre-nated influ

stand ing all the agitation for one kiad

twenty years, there has been but lit

As long ago as 1390 Congress, un
der the guise of protecting the navi
gability of our rivers and the own
ership of our public lands, prohibited
under penalty the activity necessary
for power development unless it
should be specially authorized in each
individual case by Cpngress itself.
Thus Congress effectually locked the
door to w'ater power developmeont,
which, until now-if now-it has
never opened. Congress failed to per
form the legislative function of lay
ing down general principles to goy
era development, leaving the applica
tion of 'them in a particular case to
administration, and unwisely assumed
the lrppossible administrative task of
passing upon every project. The re.
suit was inaction.

further insuperable difficulty, water
power development became the pet
hobby of those ultra-conservationists
to whom conservation meant non-use
and by whom intelligent, active inter
est was frequently mistaken for dis
honest purpose.
On the one side were those who
wished to be granted the Fedet'al
rights to develop water power free of
all pubice control or restraint, on the
other, were those who opposed the
