Conservation Fallacies In Connection
Natural Resources of Western States
(From Annual Report of Robert N. Bell, Str.te Mine Inspector)
In their present laudable but decid
edly hampered ambitions for state
pride and progress, the people of Ida
ho are confronted by a definite pros
pect of being permanently disfran
chised out of about two-thirds of their
natural state rights and revenue re
sources, and of being put back in
federal territory as to the bulk of
their state area. The most conspicu
ous and pressing effort on the part
of the government agents at Washing
ton In this connection Is the promis
ed early passage of the so-called Fer
ris bill, and other federal leasing bills,
which would deprive this state of a
constitutional right that has been
recognized ever since it was admitted.
The administration of Its water re
sources, which our courts have al
ways administered and adjudicated,
by not only transferring this Inalien
able state right to exclusive federal
authority, but at the suggestion of a
wealthy Shylock citizen of Pennsyl
vania, this law would make the peo
ple of Idaho pay millions of dollars
tribute to Pennsylvania—and other
states—for the use of its own ac
knowledged resources and exact its
development under an uncertain ten
ure of title administered by a national
political appointee. This, together
with the avowed Intention of admin
istering a* our other priceless nat
ural resources by it permanent owner
ship and leasing system, is a subject
that should demand the most vigor
ous protest of our citizens and espe
cially those who are still here that
fought so long and hard for admission
to the union on an equality with the
original thirteen states, a condition
that our enabling act guaranteed us.
The conservation policy of the Unit
ed States is based largely on egotism
and avarice. The government seems
to have divested Itself of so many
sources of revenue that It has to pick
on the far western states In an effort
to make up a serious deficiency. There
isn't any question but that this policy
was induced by the license of vested
interests tn resources of this nature,
but after providing an interstate com
merce commission and state utilities
commissions, who operate under the
eyes of a critical court of a vitally
interested local public opinion, and
which are so effectively regulating
these predatory inclinations and
promises to continue faithfully at the
job, the conservation features could
be very well left to the administra
tion of the states involved, under re
strictions If necessary, without bur
dening their communities with a hoard
of highly expensive national agents
that can only result in duplicating ad
ministrative costs, hamper their in
dustrial progress, and stir up a feeling
of dissatisfaction and unrest among
the people of the public land states in
regard to the abuse of tbeir sovereign
constitutional rights. Idaho is hit
harder and stands to lose more in
portion to its area than any other of
the public land states by the propos
ed extension of the federal policy of
leasing and controlling everything.

ent example, according to recent press

reports, of the supreme court being
shortly called upon to adjudicate the
revenue rights between two of the or
iginal states to a strip of mud flats
between high and low water on the
Connecticut river, while the same tri-'
bunal is expected to sanction the de
llberate alienation of hundreds of mil
lions of dollars worth of revenue
rlghts from the people of Idaho to the
national government, for the satlsfac
tion of a questionable theory.
The business of the government is
to govern, but not to do the thinking
for its independent citizens. If Idaho
has anything that the nation needs
and can not get along without, It Is
willing to relinquish Its constitution
al mortgage on liberal terms, but If it
has an excess of resources over the
immediate national requirements, Its
people are at least entitled.to an In
dian allotment. In their efforts to
grab the revenue rights of the public
land states, on a pretext of conserva
tion, the federal authorities and other
eastern meddlers of the Pinchot type
are overlooking some real problems
of national Import. I
Ah an example, the cost of living In
the United States is one of the most'
serious problems that confronts the
government and is likely to be the
cause of more social and serious in
dustrlal unrest, especially after the
European war, by reason of the small
purchasing power of a day's
than any other subject that confronts
the nation at this time, and in place
of worrying his head over Idaho for
ests, our national secretary of agri
culture, within a day's ride of the na
tional capitol, can find a million acres
of agriculturally abandoned soil that
was formerly part of the fallow, fer
tile foundation of our great national
agricultural Industry, and several mil
lion more such acres In the original
thirteen states of exhausted soil.
He ran look to his census records
and find that the average acre pro
duction of food stuffs from the soil of
the United States has remained al
most stationary for 30 years while our
populatlon has increased at a rapid
geometrical ratio, and this In spite of
the fact that so many million acres of
virgin soil have been put under the
plow within that period. He can fur
ther find, from authentic records, that
the average acre production of grain/
less in
is from a half to two-thirds
this country than it Is in several Euro-'
pean countries under more favorable
climatic and primary soil conditions.
To renew and conserve the primary
fertility of tbe nation's soil, the most
vital basis of its life, and double the
0 f
production of the present
area with a consequent reduction
the cost of living, and
crease of rural land credit assets,
would be a man's size conservation
job worth while. Idaho
the means to this end from its
a tripled In
can supply
resources of phosphates
with everything else easily and cheap
ly available in the farmer's hand, ac
cording to the opinion of high author
ity. This would be a much more flt
subject for the consideration of our
national secretaries of the interior and
agriculture than worrying their head*
about the purely local affairs of the
j far western states and chasing native
born white men off the grass.

While visiting Chicago a year ago
I enjoyed the courtesy of a luncheon
at the Sherman house with a promin
ent, high salaried practical chemist
who told me a story of watching the
laboratory experiments of a fellow
chemist, who, with a few grains of a
certain mineral substance that cost
two cents to produce, transformed a
gallon of distilled water into a gallon
of liquid fuel, equal if not superior, to
the best gallon of gasoline ever pro
jduced from crude hydro-carbon oil.

Winized common sense taught the far
mer that il wasn't necessary to import
soda nitrate from Chile at 20 cents a
P° und with which to fertilize his soil,
18 lle could produce the nitrogen in
the soil fron > the air with a handful
of clover seed and a little intelligent

the assistance of an invisible bacter
j b u 85 and R is possible that with
the necessary encouragement this lit
tle microbe might be induced, with
I culture medium of cheap cost, to put
the nitrates in a sack and save all the
| worry over a water power source
The many advances in the produc
| tion of light and heat that have been
made in the last few decades from
other tilings than coal and crude oil,
presents a big field for further scien
from crude primary elements
water and earth, when necessity de
velops many of the things of nature
title research and study, and will un
overcome and supply
of air,
that the conservationists are now so
anxious to conserve to the detriment
of western progress. In place of harp
ing on the patriotic necessity of the
! national requirements, our secretary
of the interior, with several idle wa
| ter powers at his command already
developed, could well have established
a practical experimental station on a
considerable scale in the fixation
atmospheric nitrogen and demonstrat
ed its feasibility and operating costs
as a guide to permanent private in
vestments along this line.
The present effort to nationalize
everything is an un-American move
that will tend to curb individual ef
fort and initiative, which has been the
chief factor of America's progress. It
will retard the development of the
public land states and create a sec
tional feeling of distrust in the union.
The horrible examples of bureaucratic
centralization and an effort of the
ruling class to do the exclusive think
ing for their people, is conspicuously
In evidence in Europe at the present
time, and unless our national patriots
can work out a more equitable regard
for state revenue rights and prospects,
their wholesale scheme of national
aggrandizement at the expense of the
public land states is likely to breed
disastrous consequences. An unbias
ed and close analysis of their physical
conditions and resources will show an
equal or superior potentiality for the
development of industry and popula
tion in the far western public land
states as any in the eastern border of
the nation. We arc willing to be rea
sonably regulated but object to being
disfran hised,
confiscated and put. on
wholesale reservations, and
would be poor, selfish, degenerate units
of a republican form of government If
we did not stand up for our natural
rights in this connection.
