Washington. Dec. •.—President Roosevelt has decided that the right of the government to protect its own property gives him sufficient authority to proceed against the Anaconda prop erties of the smelting trust, and inas much as thousands of acres of forest reserves are adleged to be In danger of destruction from the poisonous fumes from the smelters, he has the proper officials actively at work on plans to end the nuisance. The attorney general had advised that a bill In equity be filed in the United States courts In Montana to this end. The president, after con sultation with department officials. In cluding Solicitor General Hoyt, agreed that a bill in equity was the best means presented, but he was anxious that there be a certainty of results If the bill was filed and the suits begun. He therefore gave Instructions that an agent of the department of Justice should proceed to the mines and make a thorough report a« to the actual damage done and whether it was likely to Increase'. This step of the president had the effect of increasing the alarm of the trust people, who expected to dispose of the whole matter at conference with the president yesterday. Plainly Government's Right. Department officials who talked on the subject today said that the case was a very plain one and no court could fall to sustain a bill In equity when filed by the department. "The authority under which the president acts," said one of the offi cials today, "comes through the de partment of Justice. It has always been recognised that the government has a right to protect Its own prop erty. The way it is done is to Intro duce. as in this case, a bill in equity, and where damage to property is shown to exist, an immediate injunc tion will issue. We expect to stop the destruction of government prop erty by injunction, one of the simplest processes known to the department. It is obvious, too, that if the govern ment should issue an injunction, it will be to the advantage of all con cerned, private interests and all." It is because of the determination of the government to proceed at once with its strong hand that the mine owners and smelters are afraid Wiat an Injunction would either cause grave and expensive changes In their ways of doing business, or restrict their output, which would cause a loss running up into the millions. big fight is therefore expected when the bill of equity Is filed. The ability of the trust to fight the government is only measured by its money, which is practically unlim ited. If the smelters are actually closed down, from 12,000 to 15,000 men will be thrown out of work and the output of the company Immensely decreased. Government Can't Wait. The representatives of the Anacon da company and related Interests are protesting aglnst any interference in the matter baceuse the points at issue are already in the courts. President Roosevelt, however, took the stand that the government could not await the settlement of private suits and it was a case in which the government was directly Interested and suffering dally loss. At the conference were John D. Ryan, manager of the Anaconda com pany, Senators Tarter and Dixon of Montana, and Lodge of Massachusetts, Representative Pray of Montana, So licitor General Hoyt and officials of the copper trust. The president bad before him also two government in spectors, Drs. J. K. Hayward and Rob ert Fermad, who told the president that undoubtedly much damage to forest reserves is being done througfi the smelter fumes. According to the information in the hands of the presi dent, more than 6,000,000 pounds of sulphur gas and more than 50,000,000 pounds of white arsenic are produced each day by the offending smelter. R. L. Clinton of Butte, an attorney who represented the farmers through out their suit and who was present said that in Georgia It has been found that by a process these products may be utilized to advantage. The fumes emitted by the smelters burn, scorch and wilt vegetation. According to the expert testimony, many farms have been desolated and there was appar ently no remedy unless by the slow proceses of suits for damages against a powerful and rich corporation. When it was shown that the govern ment trees were being attacked and were in danger of destruction, the de partment of Justice and the Wblte house took a hand. This course, it Is believed, will solve the problem and either cause the trust to adopt harm less methods or abandon its work. Butts Voices Protest. Butte, Mont., Dec. 6.—Condemning it as a subterfuge and characterizing it as an "unwarranted proceeding," a mass meeting here voiced a vigorous protest against any action of the fed eral authorities that might tend to bring about tha closing down of the Washoe smelter at Anaconda, and telegraphed resolution to this effect to President Roosevelt and Montana's delegation in congress. NO INSURANCE INQUIRY. Governor Hughes Rejects 8cheme Per Appointment of Commission. Albany, N.

Expects Commission to fUscammsnd Discontinuance of Practice of Grant ing Title to For»*ts and Minerals Lwtda Given by the Government Washington. D. Cu Dec. Presi dent Roosevelt will obtain from the conservation commission which he ap pointed last spring, and which has been pursuing a line of inquiries through experts of the government during the summer, what he is believ ed to want, namely, the outlining of a policy whereby the nation shall be come committed to no further disposal of public lands in fee carrying with the lands the right to cut timber, open mines or In any other way place in the hands of the homestead purchaser the right to dispose of these natural pro* ducts of the earth. In other words. If President Roose velt shall have his way, and congress shall agree to what he Is aiming to secure, the present practice of dispos ing of the public lands, together with the timber and mines which they con tain, and the water rights which ac company them, will be a thing of the past. For G°vernment Control. The plan Is that public lands of the TTnlted States shall he disposed of1 subject to government control of tim ber, water and mineral deposits. The timber may be sold as a separate property right, and mines may be opened upon lands which have been acquired by the homestead settler for agricultural purposes only, entirely In dependent of the property rights of the homesteader In the surface of the land. While it Is not certain that the president's conservation commission will make direct recommendations to this effect. It Is believed that a report tending to that ultimate end will be submitted to President Roosevelt and by him transmitted to the commission of governors of the different states to meet here this week to consider rivers and harbors and kindred questions. The problem of dealing with thle extensive and far-reaching public question is a delicate one. Congress is not accustomed to accepting with perfect grace suggestions of new pol icies. For this reason it Is probable that the president's conservation com mission will not make a formal recom mendation to the effect above outlined. President Roosevelt, however, is not accustomed to being perturbed over any possibility that congress may not like his recommendations upon any question. So it is believed that h« not only will formally recommend this policy to the convention of governors next week, but will embody the entire proposition in a special report to con gress at an early date. Rep°rt to Rooeevelt The report of his conservation com mission is practically completed and will be made direct to him, because of the fart thta he created the body, and it has done its work independent of congressional action or direction. The policy is to be, first, no more wasting lie second, no more disposal of pub lic lands, except the surface, and that not to include timber. The minerals and coal on all public lands shall In the future, even wTiere the right to own the surface has pass ed to private parties, be open to lease from the government. Timber on all such lands shall be sold to private parties, subject to government regula tion in cutting. Like government cno troi shall be exercised over water courses over which the federal author ity la paramount.
