in 1915 Gives Promise to San Diego.
Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 2. After pass
ing two days In and about Seattle,
President Tait came to Tacoma and.
received from an audience that
thronged the big armory on of the
.most cordial greeetings of his trip
President Taft promised to attend an
other exposition to be held on the
Pacific coast in 1915 in celebration of
the completion of the Panama canal
The invitation was extended by
Colonel D. C. Collier, director general
of the Panama-California exposition,
which is to be held in San Diego, Cal.,
the nearest western coast city to the
Pacific entrance of the canal, and
George Burnham, a director of the ex
President Taft's unqualified state
ment in his speeches here that the
Panama canal would be completed in
1915 (aroused great enthusiasm, as
the entire Pacific coast is expecting

Completes Third of Journey.
When the president left here early
this morning and headed to the south
he had completed 5,000 miles of his
13,000-mile . journey. In matter of
elapsed time, however, his journey
was less than one-third completed.
During the time lie lias been on
the road" the president has made
eight speeches of first importance,
which have clearly set forth his view3
on nearly every question of import
anre, and he announced that he had
completed the ljst of set addresses
which he had planned before leaving
Beverly. The president's speeches
during the remainder of his trip will
be entirely extemporaneous in cnarac
ter and will consist largely of lefer-
ences to and amplification of those he
already has made.
In making his set speeches the
president selected in the different
cities visited the subjects which he
believed to be of greatest Interest to
Makes Plain His Position.
Starting from Boston, for instance
he made there the first of his set
.speeches on finance and currency leg
ifclation, speaking especially of the
work the monetary commission ap
pointed by congress has undertaken
to do. At Chicago, the president dis
cussed labor and injunctions; at
Milwaukee, he discussed and approved
the establishment of a postal savings
bank system. At Winona, he made
plain his position with reference to
the Payne tariff bill and the new tar
riff commission; at Des Molnea, he
outlined his Ideas of needed amend
ments to the Interstate commerce and
anti-trust laws; at Denver, he devoted
his remarks to the corporation tax
and dwelt upon what he deemed its
advantages in preference to a djrect
income tax; at Spokane, he discussed
the conservation of natural resources
and the reclamation of arid lands, and
lastly, at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific ex
position he gave his views regarding
the future government of Alaska by
commission and came out flatfooted
in favor of a ship subsidy law.
WATER POWER TRUST FORMS
Pinchot Declares Remedial Legislation
Is Needed at Once.
Washington, Oct 2. Unequivocally
I asserting that a monopoly now is in
process of formation whose object Is
to obtain possession of the water pow
er sites of the country, Gifford Pin
chot, chief of the bureau of forestry
who returned from an extended lnspec
tion in the west, declared that renie
dial legislation must be enacted at the
coming session of congress If this
great natural resource Is to be pre
atrved' to the people.
The problem of how best to pre
vent the natjon's water power sites
from being gobbled up by such combi
nations, Mr. Pinchot predicted, will be
one of the biggest Issues before the
next session of congress. The alleged
trust Is now In the formative stage,
Mr. Pinchot declared, and prompt ac
tion on the part of congress is neccs
sary to throttle It.
Another problem which will con
front congress will be the djspositiun
of vast areas of coal lands in the
west, nrlnclnnlly In Alaska. It Is Im
portant that congress should tal'
prompt action on thin Important mat
ter, Mr. Pinchot said, for the protec
tion of the country's fuel supply and
&ho to prevent a monopoly In coal.
Any doubt that may have existed
as to whether Mr. Pinchot would con
tinuo to advocate the policies for
which he has fought so hard was set
at rest by him. As a result of h
western tour, he Is as fully determine
as ever to continue his policies regard
Ing the conservation of the country
natural resources and the great tia
tlonni forest reserves.
