TAFT PROMISES
AID FOR HARBOR
PRESIDENT IS IMPRESSED BY
ENERGY IN LOS ANGELES
FACT THAT CITY IS READY TO
HELP LENDS STRENGTH
Great Future for Pacific Coast Prop 1!.
esied by Chief Magistrate in His
Speech at Shrine Auditorium
Banquet
In strong terms San Pedro harb-r
was Indorsed by President Taft in his
remarks lust night at Shrine Auditor
ium. Ho argued for a protected mer
chant marine, reaffirmed bis belief in
the Roosevelt doctrine and explained
Borne of the points about the Panama
canal. He said:
The President's Speech
President Taft saiii in part:
"X came Into your city this morning
by way of your harbor, and my Interest
in your city was originally largely de
iped from aii eastern standpoint,
but firom the standpoint of a territory
from which 1 have more right to hall
I think than the state 01 Ohio—l mean
the Philippine islands. I am bound to
say, first, that 1 bave learned today by
personal observation a great dial about
it and of its value and of, its possibility
as one of the great harbors ol tin
western Pacific coast that 1 did not
know before.
"I did not know that you were in
texisely Interested In it. No man couid
Uve in the neighborhood ot your junior
senator and have anything to do with
the authority concerning that harbor
without having it borne upon him, as
our Methodists say. with an intensity
that he doesn't forget.
"It did not seem to me to be of such
immediate importance that the har
bor lines away out here on the wesl
coast should he fixed for a particular
harbor, but there was nothing for m?\
to do under the circumstances, but to
end that controversy in view of thej
attitude that Senator Flint bore to
ward mo, and I made an order thatj
the engineers should fix thos' harbor
lines or else some engineers would:
suffer. No, I do not. ask your grati
tude on that account. It was a mat
ter of personal comfort to me, and Ij
fixed them, and they are going to'
stay there, at least as long as l have
control: but. of course, they are going I
to stay there. They were fixed by
an eminent body of army engineers,
thon whom there are no greater or
men of higher character than they.
Refers to Captain Fries
"You were greatly concerned, or
some of you were, when the gentleman
who preceded the present engineer was
assigned to some other duty and the
present engineer put in. It is possible
I have met ('apt. Fries. It. is a little
difficult to keep all the army officers,
when there are 3000 of them, in your
mind, but I have met the present en
gineer—I met him this morning—and
if there is any citizen of Los Angeles
that is more imbued with the Los An
geles spirit than he is, I have yet to
meet him. and I have met a good
many. The truth is, with respect to
army engineers, they are put - '.ere
they are put to do theler duty, and
When they are there they do their
duly, and the great advantage that
we have in building the Panama canal
today is that while we have the most
eminent men at the head of that work,
if they were to die tomorrow from any
cause, yellow fever or death of any
kind, suggesting immediate death to
their we could call upon
the members of that corps immediate
ly to furnish men who would step into
their places and die if necessary in the
discharge of their duty without a
question.
"That is the kind of men we have in
the army engineers, and if the time
comes under the regulation? of that !
department for the present lieutenant
to move on and acquire the at
mosphere of some other entereprtslng
port, and harbor and city, he will be
followed by a man who will do liis duty
just as well ns the present engineer,
and you can count on it.
Prophesies Success
"The last speaker suggested a num- ;
ter of things that you would like to;
have from the general government. I
am not a dispenser ot the funds ot the j
nil government. I am its distrib
utor, or at least those under me dis
tribute the funds that the congress of
the United states appropriates, ' buti
living near the seat of government anJ
having had some experience In the way;
that the government works and the .
matters thai Influence the committee
on rivers and harbors in both houses. 11
can give you the benefit of that experi- I
enee enough to prophesy a few things |
in regard to that harbor.
"I do not guarantee it. No wise man j
ever guaranteed what the verdict of a:
jury would be or what a congress would
do, but I venture to prophesy with that
qualification, llrst, that you have got a
harbor now sufficiently constructed to
show that it is worthy of being im- <
proved to the uttermost; second, that
you have taken the step which most of
all will secure from congress the money
Deeded to make the harbor all that you
wish it to be, and that is, you have vot
ed to put your own money into the im
provement of thai harbor In order that
the pulili.- may get the benefit of the
wharf.
"The principle that has moved thej
committees In both houses is that the
Lord helps those who help themselves,
and that they are most willing to put
the government's money into those en
terprises In which the local communi
ties are so intensely interested that
they are willing to make large contri
butions themselves.
Up to the People
"Hence, I say. without hesitation at
all, that with your improvement se
cured, as you have secured it by a
vote of bonds, there Isn't any trouble
about the improvement of your harbor
as you desire. 1 say* as you desire it.
Our friend mi the left suggested forty
five feet depth. Well, that is all right,
but what you will do with that extra
ten or fifteen feet I do not know un
til you get limits thai have that draft.
We had to make the Panama canal
forty-five feet because it was a work
Which was to be constructed for all
time. The locks when put in there
cannot be changed with any reason
expense, and therefore th« law
provided that the canal should he con
structed of such dlmi us.ons that It
would transport or" furnish the means
of transportation of any vessel they
are now sailing or projected.
' "Well, there were two or three ves
■«]■ projected Of 38 feet maximum
loaded draft, 88 feet beam and 800 feet
long, and we have put In locks that
are 41 feet 'leap over sill, that are
a thousand feet of usuable length and
are 110 feet wide, but that is for the
far future, because it would be most
inconvenient and most expensive to
change those locks, but it is easy
enough to deepen a harbor like this;
if /on conclude that you have bo
many ships of 45 feet maximum loaded
draft and you need that additional
10 feet I can prophesy that you can
get it; but my impression now is if I
were you I would not go 45 feet di
rect. I would begin by something less.
Canal Finished in 1915
"The Panama canal is of course the
greatest enterprise of a constructive
character which has been entered up
on ror two centuries, n will certainly
ompleted by the first of January,
1915. We are now engaged in an ex
cavatlon that equals or nearly equals
three million of cubic yards of material
a month, and that would easily finish
the canal some two yens before the
date that 1 have mentioned. The un
llnty as to its completion depends
upon the construction of the dam and
the construction of the locks and th<
engineers are not yet in a position
to prophecy as they could witli re
spect to the excavation, when the
Whole work can be completed. What
its effect »iii he upon the trade of the
world i.- problematical.
"I do not think that we can always
calculate with exactness how tra I"
aues are to change, but I think
there are < i.-rtain facts that we can
make as promises with respect to the
operation of the canal upon the com
merce of the world. One is that its
most important function will he the
trade between the east and west co s
of die United states. How far it will
t the transcontinental lines of
course it is difficult to say, but that
It will make a radical change in the
character of the merchandise carried
I believe is certain.
"The next most important change
that it is going to make is in refer
ence to the trade between this c asl
and Europe and the next most im
portant is the trade between t I
eastern roast of the I'nited States an 1
the west coast of South America. Wiih
respect to all the other avenues of
trade the Suez canal Is apt to be b
competitor and the change that will
be affected by putting in a new method
and a new way of getting through the
continent is one that can only b'
known when the change has been ef
fected, and years have been given 1 I
allow that change to have all its ef
fect.
Means Much Here
"Certain it is, however, that the city
of Los Angeles and the" city or Ban
Francisco and the city of Sen tile are
cities most to be affected by the com
pletion of the Panama canal, and no
one can criticise, no one has the right
to ridicule the effort and the great ef
forts that your city has made to estab
lish a harbor for your city, so that you
shall get the benefit of that great trad"
that the Panama canal is certain to
bring to tile western coast.
"1 do not know that the increase in
the merchant marine Is essential to
your enjoyment of great benefit from
that canal. I do not think It is.
"Now we haven't any international
merchant marine. I do not know that
the system of subsidy is to be the cor
re< t way of working out that problem,
but I do know that it is in ac
cordance with the principle that
we followed in respect to the de
velopment of our Indusriest —he pr >-
tective system. We cannot protect it
in thi : controlling foreign bot
toms, and therefore the only equivalent
that we can offer is to pay those of our
people wiio «ill build and operate our
ships under our laws enough to equal
the difference in condition between their
running the ships anil foreigners run
ning foreign ships ami allowing them
a reasonable profit: and I for one am
in favor of trying that experiment.
Energy Is Praised
"There are a good many other .sub
jects that I should like to discuss with
you. As I looked at that beautiful
map and followed that red eye and
green eye across it and saw where I
had inflicted my views on the various
suffering citizens of the United States
at points ;. loss its surface. I won
dered how long tlie American people
would bear it. and therefore I hesi
tate to take up the questions that are
Just as important to you as they are
to any of the citizens fl have had the
honor to address. The truth is. I doubt
whether in New York, in Boston, in
Chicago, in any city in the country,
I should have the honor and opportu
nity of addressing so cosmopolitan an
audience as 1 now face, an audience
made up of the bone and sinew of the
community that has builded a beau
tiful city in a desert; that brings its
water 230 miles; that goes twenty miles
for a harbor, and that expects to
enlarge by the application of water
to earth, drawn I do not know from
where. You are a marvel. You have
got two marvels in California. One
is San Francisco that has arisen from
its ashes, and the other is Los Angeles
that is risen from the desert.
"There is one thing that the may has
taught me as I looked at it—has only
confirmed that which comes to me ev
ery time I rise to address an American
audience —I don't care whether it is on
a small town resurrected from the des
ert in Colorado, or a large city, or any
where elese—there is in the faces of
those people that I have talked to a
m use of contentment, of peace, and of
determination to get on and subdue
the obstacles, in order that they may
.■bow their American spirit In overcom
ing it, and that spirit I find everywhere.
Believes in the People
"Talk about anarchists am' Socialists
end discontent with the situation. It
may be that I did not see those people:
perhaps I wont. I am not anxious to
see them. But 1 do meet the great ma
jority of the American people, and they
come out to meet me In order to testify
their interest in the government and
their pride in their country and their
belief that there is nothing that an
American cannot achieve and cannot
oven otpe.
"Allusion has been n.ade to the poli
cies of my predecessor. I yield to no
one for my admiration for that great
man and the map he laid out for those
who were to follow him. .Sometimes it
seems as if it were pretty burdensome
for those who do follow them in order
to keep up with the procession, but it
is a great aid to have his example be
fore me, to have the test of the judg
ment of the American people which
he was able to make and to know that
in following along the general lines
that he laid down the administration
which follows him is following the will
of the American people."

Rockefeller advocated less scripture
and more practical Christianity In a
talk before the children of the Euclid
Avenue Baptist Sunday school yester
day.
"When I was a lad nf 10," he said,
"we had two neighbors, both good men,
but their methods of practicing Chris
tianity were far apart.
"One would quote scripture all day
long, but he was a hard man to deal
with.
"If he had preached less scripture and
given his men more nooning he would
have done much more good.
"The other man," continued Mr.
Rockefeller, "tried to live according to
the Bible, but outside of the church
was never heard to quote a line. His
deeds spoke much louder, than his
words."
