VOL XIX WEST WANTS TO USE RESOURCES Senator Borah of Idaho Speaks in Senate Today as Champ ion of the West FOR PRACTICAL CONSERVATION Resources Should Not Lie Idle, lm prisoned and Unusable, He Declares West is Willing to Formu late Regulations. Washington, June 20. 'What we want Is a mine, practical conservation policy, under reasonable regulation, permitting the development of our nat ural resources In accordance with the natural lawa of progress und Indus trial growth," declared Senator Rorah In addressing the senate today during consideration of conservation legisla tion. Mr. Rorah spoke as the champion of tho west. "It would be a magnifi cent scheme. Indeed." he exclaimed, "to compel the whole great west to bold Its vast resources In Idleness, de prive Its people of their enjoyment and use nnd compel them to pay tribute to those resources of which you have tak en possession here In the east and de veloped at your own free will." Contending that It was a violation of every principle of the constitution to withhold power sites from tho use of the western states, Mr. Rorah in quired: "If Illinois or Massachusetts receives thousands or even millions of dollars as a revenue for their water power and Idaho receives nothing, but, on the other hand, pays millions Into tho federal treasury, is there equality among the states?" He said that the contention that natural resources in n state, belonged to all the people of the United Htates was all right In theory but that In practice It was utterly un true. "Our power sites do not In any sense of the term belong to the people of New England or New York," continued Hie senator. "They are to be utilized by those who make themselves citizens of the state and Join with others in trying to build up a commonwealth." He argued that It never had been the theory of the government that these resources should be utilized as a rev enue producing proposition but that Ihey were for the benefit of all the people. "Hut." he said "the people with the state In order to avail themselves of the use and ben elit." Mr. Horah said congress could not promote conservation by treating pow er sites, which to utilize was to con serve, as It did coal beds, which to utilize was to consume. As to unde veloped natural resources he said that after congress had adopted laws to prevent waste, extravacame and mo nopoly so as to Insure their economic nnd bona fide use by the people, It was about as far as the United States government could go. lie added that ns to timber there always should be the encouragement and aid of reforest ation ns that was something that could be reproduced. "Every water power site unused, locked up In idleness an.1 Inactivity when there are communitloi to serve, Is a subtraction from the t.m of hu man happiness and prosperity," he con tinued. "Every piece of land which will produce the necessaries of life ded. Icated by law to non-use, incorporated In a reserve and denied to settlement. Is an extra burden upon every man who buy the necessaries of life. Every year In which thousands of feet of ri pened lumber are permitted to rot nnd fall In the reserves you are stealing something from the human race that belongs to it, and every year that the Brent coal beds of the Pacific slope g nndevploned It costs this government Its extra millions to send coal around to the raclfle, burdens every citizen In thnt part of the country with exor bitiint freight charges, and puts extra millions Into the hands of eastern coal companies who delighted to see this rn on." Economic use and development should bo the basic and fundamental principle of any conservation policy agreed upon or Incorporated Into law. said Senator Horah. "These resources are not to lie idle. Imntlnrmnri nml unusable." he argued. "If you Join with us In that proposl tlon, we will gladly Join you In formu lating a policy of regulation and con . troi which will avoid waste, extrava gance nnd monopoly as far as possi ' ble. Hut Upon a policy of non-ue, o strangulation of the great west, we stop at tho first call for legislation."
