"1 do not believe.'' says the president, ''that our natural resources should be granted and held in an undeveloped condition either for speculatian or other reasons. So far as I am aware theie are no assurances that the grantees (in this case)are in any better condition prompt ly and properly to utilize this opportun ity than they were at the time of the original act granting the privilege ten years ago.' 1 Discussing broadly the federal policy, the president says; ''Every permit to construct a dam on any navigable stream should specifically recognize the right of the government to fix a term for its duration and to im pose such charge or charges as may lie deemed necessary to protect the present and future interests of the United States connected with the act of June 2, 1906, • "The provisions for a charge is of vi'al importance.
