DOUMA TAKES UP THE
Present Body Begins Discussion
Question That Kept Last Par
Washington. April 1. President
Roosevelt. In declining the invitation
of the Illinois Manufacturers' associa
tion to make an address at Springfield
next week on the railroad and finan
cial situation, wrote a letter to C. H.
Smith, president of the association, ex
plaining such an address from him at
this time would be useless, as his posi
tion was well understood and as he
stands by his previously expressed
Quote from AililrenNe.
The president outlines at length his
position on the railroad and financial
questions, by means of copious ex
tiacts from speeches he delivered at
Haleigh, X. C, and Washington in Oc
tober and November. l!to.r, and from
late messages to congress. His posi
tion since the time of his addresses
and messages the president declares to
have been amply justified by the course
of events. Its wisdom is obvious, he
adds, and there is no occasion or rea
son for amplification at present.
IlltM I'u I. lie 0utTlil.
The president calls attention to his
belief that the government should own
nothing which can properly be left in
private hands, but that such regula
tions should be exercised against rail
roads as to insure their operation in a
spirit of fairness to all concerned.
Whatever power the government wields
must be with wisdom, caution and self
restralnt. Railroads, he declared, must
be protected from public clamor, no
matter how violent, when the roads
were in the right.
H.itVM Not Too IllKh.
The president says railroad rates ate
not as a whole too high, but t hat the
evils that exist are iluc to unjust dis
crimination, and this should be pre
vented by law.
The president outlines again his well
known views favoring effective govern
ment supervision over corporate organ
izations, holding any effort to prevent
St. Petersburg. April 1. The discus
sion of the Agrarian problem, to whio'.i
the first Russian parliament almost en
tirely devoted its legislative acttvit .
began in the lower house today. The
question is considered to be of far ler-s
importance now than it was last year.
Neither constitutional democrats nor
socialists have much expectation of ar
riving at practical results during the
life of the present parliament.

Washington, April 1. President
Roosevelt wrote yesterday to C. H.
Smith of Aurora. III., president of the
Illinois Manufacturers' association,
formally declining the invitation of that
organization to speak at Springfield on
the industrial situation.
In his letter to Mr. Smith the pres
ident says that the more he has
thought over the association's repre
sentations the stronger is his conclu
sion that there is nothing for him to
say. That being the case, he does not
intend to make a special occasion 01
which to deliver a special address,
whiclf would be merely a repetition of
what he has frequently said in thr
past. The president, refers Mr. Smith
to the speech he made at Raleigh, X.

problem would speedily be nearer so

can ever hope to bring it. There has
been in the past, feeling among ra'l
road men that waterway development
would be iniminl to railroad interest?
I do not think it would, and if this id a
