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."
