It wis from the utterances of Mr. Carnegie and those who followed him that the giavitx of the problems to bp considered were given weight Two hundred vears of coal supply and half that of Iron was the prediction ot the famous Iron master. There were ways b.v which both the coal and iron supply might be conserved, according to Mr. Carnegie by economies In mining and in use, and the development of water trans portation, which he said reeiulred less of both products. Pr. 1. C. White of West Virginia added expert knowledge and predic tion on the subject of coal and Iron, In which he predicted the exhaustion of the Pittsburg coal supply In 9.1 years and the West Virginia tlclds In practically the same time. John Mitchell, former brad uf the I'nl led Mine Workers' union, estimated that fully :Si per lent, of the cual in the lllllie ulicady developed hud be. 11 wast ed III mlnil'tr. and a much givaler per rentage In use.

Kvery step of the progress of mankind Is marked by the discovery and use of natural resources previously unused. Without such progressive knowledge and utilization of natural resource popula tion -mild not grow, nor industries multi ply, nor the hidden wealth o the earth o developed for tho fneflt of mankind Nature has supplies to us In the I r ' eel States, and still s ipplic.s to us. more kinds of resources in a more lavish Ie. gre fhan has ever been tho ease at anv other time or with any other people Ojr position in the world has boon attajred by the extent and thoroughness of t'' control we have achieved over nature but we are more, anel not less, dependent upon what she furnishes than at any previous time of history since the davs of primitive man. The wise use of all of our natural re sources, which are our national resourrei las well. Is the great materia) questim of I to-day. I have asked you to come to I gother now because the enormous con sumption of the-.se rsnurees. and the thte.it of Imminent exhaustion of some of them, dne to reckless and wasteful use. one-e more calls for common effort, common action. It Is safe to say that the prosperity of our people depends directly on the en ergy and intelligence with wh 1- 01 1 natural resources are used, p is rq ia'lv clear that these resources are the final basis of national power and pTpei it Finally, it .s ominously evid.nt th t '-.es. resnuices are In tin- e ours., of nip'd ex hausiion.
