HOW HE APPROVES LEASES
Washington Oct 31The practice of
gQvernment in granting water power
concessions ie I outlined by Gifford Pin
chot United States forester In a letter
written to Colonel H L HIggInson of
Boston Mass a director of the Gen
eral Electric company The letter fol
lows
My Dear Colonel Higginson
Your letter of Oct 9 Is received You
will be glad to know that I have been
misquoted as to the statements you
mention First of ail I have no desire
to prevent or retard the development
of water powers by private capItal
They should be developed by private
capital In my judgment under proper
government control and not by the
nation or the states
Secondly I have not raid either pri
vately or publicly that the General
Electric company or any other single
existing corporation controls or Is now
seeking to control illl the water powers
In the country But no one can deny
there Is a marked tendency toward
practical concentration and control of
the hydroelectric development over
very wide areas
In some cases this concentration
may be a mere community of Inter
ests evidenced and made effective by
directorates In several legally distinct
corporations held by the representa
tives or the same Interests or friendly
Interests
In other cases It appears to be
brought about by a closer Intercorpo
rate relations and In still other cases
as for Instance In central California
there seems to be a single corporate con
trol of a large and populous territory
The report of the commissioner of cor
porations transmitted to congress with
his message of January 15199 vetoing
a bill H B 17707 to license the build
Ing of a darn In James river Mo es
tablishes these fact
Opportunity for Truct
The IncreasIng radIus of practicable
electric transmission and the recent
financial history of the country as to
consolidation of other kinds of busi
ness seems to justify the belief that
there Is a strong tendency toward con
centrated control of hydroelectric de
velopment In the United States
I do not say a single trust has yet
been formed As an outsider I have
not the Information which would war
rant my saying that such a trust has
been planned but It Is apparent the
present tendencies favor such a trust
and wlll produce It It they continue
I therefore think It Is of the utmost
Importance for the people to understand
these tendencies realize their Import
and take effective steps now while there
is at time to retain and effectively ex
ercise public control of this vital ne
cessity of life This may be done by
giving concessions limited In time re
quiring a fall rental and imposing con
ditions to prevent the evils whIch ex
perience has taught us to expect from
unregulated monopoly
I am very glad Indeed to have your

WEST POINT CADET KILLED
IN HABY ARD FOOTBALL GAME
Death Cancels the Entire Schedule
Including the Famous Army
I Navy Annual Contest
West Point N Y Oct 31Cadet Eugene A Byrne who was in
jured hl yesterdays football game between the Army team and Harvard
died early today His father former Chief of Police John A Byrne of
Buffalo was with him when he died
The tragedy has brought such poignant grief to officers and cadets
alike that the end of football at WestPoint and Annapolis is announced
for this season and perhaps forever Young Byrne expired at sunrise
Buried beneath a mass of struggling players in the HarvardArmy
game yesterday his neck was twisted and broken by the weight of the I
crushing pile above him
L M 00
Only the Immediate resort to artificial
Trplratlon kept We boy from almost In
stant death for he did not draw a
natural breath after receiving the fatal
shock 1
Fneral services will be held tomorrow
In the Catholic chapel at the post where
the body was taken A cadet guard has
been posted at the chapel and details of
young soldiers will watch over the body
until aftEr the services tomorrow The
f nEral will be conducted with full mili
tary honors
The manner of young Byrnes Injury
tnessed as It was by the father and
the hundreds gathered to the strlllgle be
tween the Army and Harvard was
dramatiC When spectators realized the
shock wa serious the cheering was
hushed as If by magic A few minutes
later Byrne was carried unconscious from
the field
By order of Colonel Scott cadet activi
tiES for today were directed to be only
such as were necessary There was no
parade tonight the flag was lowered to
half mast and directions were given that
nIl academic duties be suspended tomo
row Colonel Scott also announced no
more games would be played this year
Young Byrne was only 21 years old but
r was a veteran of the army football team
and popular with his classmates and of
tlCers He was acting as captain of the
eleven yesterday
Byrne was Injured in a mass play C1
tackle 11 play common enough In foot
ball and which had been used several
times In the game previous to the Incident
Byrne standing valiantly as left tackle
for the army was forced under the rush
or crimson players and falling must
have hAd his mead twisted Into a position
where the weight of the men piling upon
him was greater than the strong liga
ments of the vertebral column could
stand
If Byrne dies It will kill football for
both West Point and Annapolis was the
freQuent remark heard on the grounds
last night and tonight with Byrne dead
the feeling prevailed that football as a
sport at Vest Point and Annapolis has
been killed Not even the famous Army
Navy game will be played
Chicago Oct 3LIntttlews with col
lege authorities throughout the United
States concerning theo continuance of foot
ball games have been complied by a Chi
cago papers The authorities are about
equally divided for and against the games

JAMES D MURDOCH
JAMES DMURDOCHS DECLARATION Of PRINCIPLES
I will to the best of my ability safeguard the interest of the people in so far as I am able with the assistance
sistanc of the council and the heads of departments There will be equal rights extended to all and special
privileges to none I
I will endeavor to bring about competition in aU classes of public contracts and beg to assure all bid
ders hat they will receive fair and courteous treatment at my hands
I favor public improvements of all kinds that will add to the comfort and improvement of this com
munity Every family in this city is justly entitled to a liberal supply of pure water Cement sidewalks
should and must be extended wherever the people desire them and are willing to furnish the money to pay
the cost of constructing the same
Sewers should and must be extended in all directions and connections to same enforced in order that
the public health may not suffer and the everrecurring periods when contagious diseases prevail in our
fair city may be eliminated as far as possible
I favor street paving wherever the abutters on the streets to be paved shall petition the city council to
have the improvements made in so far as the city is able to pay for its share of the improvements made
I favor and will constantly endeavor to limit contracts in size and extent in order that the man or
men with limited capital may have the opportunity to get their share of all public work and on all large jobs
to so divide the work that parties equipped with tools and machinery to perform part of the work may come
in competition with those who are prepared to do all the labor and furnish all the material to complete the
same
r cordially recommend the proposition now under consideration by the school board of this city to build
and equip a magnificent High school building that will be in harmony with the many grand school build
ings we now possess and be a source of delight and admiration to all friends of education at home as well as
the admiration of all our visitors from abroad and will gladly vote for bonds to build the same
I condemn the methods heretofore in vogue of tie party in power taking the initiative in inaugurating
improvements without the knowledge and consent of property owners along the line of the proposed improve
ment and tamed out with the purpose in view of furnishing favored contractors with large jobs at exorbit
ant prices to the great injury of the taxpayers of Salt Lake
r will extend the same courtesies to the man in overalls as I will to those of our citizens who may be
better equipped with the necessaries and the luxuries of everyday me remembering always that I too have
been a workingman and proud to acknowledge it
I firmly believe that public office is a public trust and the acts of public men are fit subjects for public
criticism Public officers are the servants of the people and as such are responsible only to the people
