The former president cited two decisions by the supreme court .-which, he declared, were contrary to the principles of democracy and, he said, ' emphatically that if those decisions the permanent attitude of the ' court the entire American system of -popular government would be upset. . ' Colonel Roosevelt's speech before the .. legislature was one of the five which ;he delivered in, Denver today. Every where he went he was greeted by \u25a0cheering multitudes which blocked the .streets, interfered ' with traffic and packed to suffocation the various builJings in which he spoke. Immense Audience ;The Auditorium, in which he dcliv .Veiled his speech on conservation, holds • 35,000 persona, and yet it was large enough to seat only a part of the throng which cjamored for admission. The streets outside the buildings were crowded with other thousands, who eought in vain" to gain admittance. The chamber of the house of repre eentatives at the capitol was filled with a crowd which cheered him so fre quently that he had difficulty in pro ceeding with his speech. On the wall behind the colonel was a large picture of President Taft. draped with the col ors. In addition to his remarks con cerning the supreme court Colonel Roosevelt denounced dishonest legisla tors and demagogues. He scored men of wealth who gain their riches at the expense of thr people, attacked un truthful newspapers and magazines and praised the periodicals and newspapers which, he said, boldly told the truth in order to purify the body politic. . The Roosevelt party leaves at 7:45 o'clock in the morning for Pueblo, where Colonel "Roosevelt is to lay the cornerstone of the Young Men's Chris tian association building. From there he starts for Osawatorriie, Kan., where he is due Wednesday morning and where h« is to make what probably •will be, the most important speech of hie tour. Tribute to America Supplementing his prepared speech at the Auditorium, Roosevelt, referring to the United States as compared with conditions he found abroad, said: I can with sincerity say that with •all our faults and with all our shortcomings — and I know them well-— there is not any other spot on the face of the earth where life ; -' if? so supremely worth' living,' Continued on rage 3. bot.

PERMIT NOT GOOD, SAYS MAYOR McCarthy Declares That the Garfield Hetch Hetchy ? r Grant Is Worthless STARTLING STATEMENT BY CITY'S EXECUTIVE Supervisors Urged to Negotiate for Purchase of Spring \ Valley Properties > TWO PLANS SUGGESTED FOR ACQUIRING PUNT IX an exhaustive letter submitted yesterday to the board of super visors Mayor P. H. McCarthy, dis cussing: the water situation in San Francisco, makes the assertion that he does not believe the Garfield per mit for the use of Hetch Hetchy and Lake Eleanor to be worth the paper it is 'written on, and urges the super visors to enter into negotiations with" the Spring Valley water company for the purchase of its entire plant. The letter in full, is as follows: The Mayor's Letter . 3| To the honorable board of super* visors, city and county of San Fran cisco, 61 Eddy street, city. Gentlemen: There Is no matter of greater importance to the people of San Francisco than the water ques tion. For many years the question of an adequate supply, for present and future needs, of pure water bas en gaged the attention of our officials. Every available supply has been stud ied and exploited. At last our people were informed that the question was finally solved by the Garfield permit, through^ which the city of San Fran cisco had acquired the rights to use jhe waters of Lake Eleanor and the Hetch Hetchy in the Sierra Nevada, moun tains. ' • •AYe were told that every action which was necessary to acquire and hold these alleged rights was taken by the city and large sums of money have been expended hy our people In consummat ing what they were led to believe were the necessary and proper steps for the acquisition and use of this magnificent water supply. \u25a0 : . •\u25a0'.'\u25a0\u25a0 Under the Garfield permit it was necessary to use the Lake Eleanor sec tion first and when that was found to be inadequate then the Hetch Hetchy was to be available. " . '• $45,000,000 Bonds Voted . • : .. Our people, happy in the thought that at no very far distant day they would have the clear, cold, snow water of the Sierras served to them under a municipal water system, went to the polls on the 14th day of January fast and gave almost unanimous consent to the expenditure of $45,000,000 to bring Hetch Hetchy water to our city. Soon thereafter came the rude awakening. The secretary of the interior Issued his much deplored order to shaw cause why Hetch Hetchy should not be with drawn from the permit hitherto granted. Lake Eleanor, with its estimated ca pacity of 60,000,000 gallons dally, when improved and brought to the city will probably meet the requirements of the city when the plant will have been completed (say in 1915), but no more. The people will then be obliged to de pend on Spring Valley or some other supply in case Hetch Hetojjy, now in dispute, is not available. Thus, we once more found ourselves in a dilemma, where it was supposed that all was clear sailing:. The Mission to "Washington On Monday. April 11, 1910, your hon orable board decided, in response, to the order issued by the secretary of the interior to show cause why the permit granted and known as the Gar field permit for the right to us e Hetch Hetchy valley and erect and construct a dam therein should not be revoked, that the mayor, the city engineer, the city attorney and Professor Marx of the . Stanford university, associated with representatives from the trans bay cities, proceed to Washington and defend the rights of the people in the matter. . - . *' Upon the arrival. of our representa tives at Washington we learned that the hearing set for the 18th day of / May had been postponed for one week. * This gave our committee, time within which to look the ground over, com pare notes and meet with many differ ent people In Washington who seemed to have a knowledge, in some form or other, of the matter so important to San- Francisco and its people. '.J*2 z. Tour representatives met with Presi- '. dent Taft by appointment and discussed the Hetch Hetchy situation quite fully, the .president entering into the dis cussion with a great deal of. zeal. As the president proceeded to explain the position occupied by San Francisco re garding the Hetch Hetchy -valley and the constru-ctiun -fit % dam therein w* '• rw rw August 29. 1910.
