Work. . Where th Immediately abutting
land ta markedly baneflted, and this ben
efit can be definitely localised, I trust that
there will be careful Investigation to see
whether some way can be devised by
which it Immediate beneficiaries may pay
a portion of the expenses aa is now the
tuatorn a regard certain clasees ot Im
provements In our municipalities; and
measures should bo taken to secure from
the localities specially benefited proper
terminal facilities. .The expense to the na
tion ofventerlnlf upon such ' a scheme of
river Improvement as that which' I. be
liove It should undertake, will necessarily
be great Many cautious and conservative
pplo will look askance upon the proJct,
and from every standpoint it Is necessary,
If we wish to make k successful, that we
should rnter upon It only under condltlun
which will guarantee 4 lie nation against
waste of Its money, and which will insure
us against entering upon any project until
after lh most elaborate expert examina
tion, and reltabt calculation of the pro
portion .between cost and benefit, in any
-project Tike this thereshould be a definite
policy, and a resolute purpose to keep In
mind that (ho', only Improvements made
should be those really national In char
acter. We should act on the same pi In
clple In- improving our rivers that we
should follow In Improving our harbors.
The great harbors are of consequence not
merely l the Immediate localities, but to
Immeni stretches of country; and the
same Is true of the great rivers. It Is
these great rivers and great harbors the
Improvement of Which Is of primary na
tional Interest. The main streams .should
be Improved to the highest practical de
gree of efficiency before Improvements ara
attempted on the branches, and work
should be undertaken only when comple
tion la within sight within a reasonable
time, so that assured results may be gained
and the communities affected depend upon
the Improvements. Moreoverri as an in
cident In caring for the river sa that It
nay become an efficient channel of trans
portation, tha United States government
should do Its full part In levee building,
which, In the lower reaches of the river,
will not only give a channel for com.
meroe, but will also glva protection to tht
adjacent bottom lands.
So DeSnlte Plaa Heretofore.
immense sums have already been spent
upon the Mississippi by the states and the
nation, yet much of It remains practically
unused for commerce. The reasons for this
fact are msny. One Is that the work dona
by the national government at least has
not beeu based upon a definite and contin
uous plsn. Appropriations by congress, in
stead of assuring the steady progrens and
timely completion, ot each piece of work as
It was undertaken, havo been Irregular and
uncertain. As a direct consequence, far
reaching plsnt have been discouraged and
continuity In execution has been madn im-
roBslble. It Is altogether unlikely that bri
ef results wilt be obtained so long as th;
method Is followed of making partial appro
priations at Irregular intervals for works
which should never be undertaken until it
is certain that they can be tarried to com-
fletlon within a definite and reasonable
Ime Planned and orderly development la
essentlsl to the best use of every natural
rt-source, and to none more than to the best
use of our Inland waterways. In the case
of the waterways it has been conspicunuly
absent. Because such foresight was lack
ing the Interests of our rivers have been In
fact overlooked. In spite of the immense
sums spent upon them. It Is evident that
their most urgent need Is a far-slKhted aivl
comprehensive plan, dealing not with navi
gation alone, nor with Irrigation alone, but
considering our inland waterways as a
whole, and with reference to every use to
which they can be put. The central motive
of such a plan should be to get from tha
streams of the I'll it ed States not only tiia
fullest, but also the most permanent service

they are capable of rendering to the nation
aa a whole.
The Industries doveloped under the stim
ulus of tha railroads ore for the most part
Jiermanent Industries, and therefore they
orm the basis for future development. But
the railroads have shown that they alone
cannot meet the demviris of the country
for transportation, and where this Is true
the rivers should begin to supplement tha
railroads, to the benefit of both, by reliev
ing them of certain of the leas profitable
classes of freight. The more far-seeing
railroad men. I am glad to tell you, realise
this fact, and many of them have become
earnest advocates of tha Improvement Of
the Mississippi, so that It may become a
sort of Inland seaboard, extending from the
Oulf far Into the Interior, and 1 hope ulti
mately to tha Great Lrftkes. An Investiga
tion of the proposed Lakes-to-the-Oulf
deep waterway Is now In progress under an
appropriation of the last congress. We
shall await Its results with the keenest in
terest. The decleton is obviously of capital
Importance to our Internal development and
scarcely less so in relation to external com
merce. Rivers In Far Wast.
This Is but one of the many project
which It Is time to consider, although a
most Important one. Plans for the Im
provement of our Inland navigation may
fairly begin with our greatest river and Its
chief tiibutarles, but they cannot end there.
The lands which the Columbia drains In
clude a vast area of rich grain fields and
fruit lands, much of which is not easily
reached by railways. The removal of ob
structions In the Columbia and its chief
tributaries would open to navigation and
inexpensive freight transportation fully J.UOi)
miles of channel. The fsacranynto and 8a;i
Joaquin rivers, with their thlal openings
Into San Francisco bay, are partly naviga
ble now. Their navigation should be main
tained and Improved, so as to open the mar
velonsly rich valley of CallfornlV toi Inex
netislva traffic, in order to facilitate both
rate regulation and the control of the
waters for other purposes. And many other
rivers of the- L'nitml 8tates demand Im
provement, so as belter to meet the require
ments of Increasing production from the
soil. Increasing manufacture and a rapidly
growing population.
While thus the Improvement of Inland
navigation is a vital problem, there are
other questions . of no less consequence
connected with our waterways. One of
these relates to the purity ot waters used
for the supply of towns and cities, to til
prevention of pollution by manufacturing
and other Industries, and to the protection
of drainage areaa from soil wash through
forest covering or Judicious cultivation.
With our constantly increasing population
this question becomes mora and more
pressiitK, because the health and sa'ety of
great bodies of citizens are directly In
volved. Another Important group of questions
concerns the irrlgstlon of srid Isnds. the
prevent ion of floods and the reclamation
of swamps. Already many thousands of
homes have been established on the arid
regions, and tha population and wealth of
seventeen states and territoriea have been
itigely Increased through irrigation. Yet
h's means of national development Is still
n Its infancy, and It wrll doubtless long
'orlinue to multiply homes and increase
the productiveness and power of the na
tlun. Tha reclamation of overflow lands
snd marshes, both In tha Interior and along
the coasts, has already been carried on
with admirable results, but In this field,
too, scaroely more then a good beginning
yet has been insde. Ht III another funda
mentally Important question is that of
water power. Its significance in the fu
ture development of our whole country,
and especially of the west, is but Just
beg'nnnig to bo understood. The plan of
the city of Los Angeles, for exsmple, to
bring water for its use a distance of
nearly !d0 miles perhaps the boldest proj
ect of t tie kind In nHwIerh times promises
not only to achieve its curcose. but in ad
dition to produce a wuter power sufficiently j
valuable to pay large Interest on the In
vestment of over 3.000,000.
Much Lateat Horse Power.
Hitherto such opportunities for using
water to double purpose have not always
been seized. That it has recently been
shown that water enough It flowing un
used over government dams, built to Im
prove navigation, to produce many hun
dreds of thousands of horse-power. It Is
computed that the annual value of the
available but unused water power In - the
I'nlted States exceeds the annual value
of the products of all our mines. Further
more, it is calculated that under Judicious
handling the power of our streams may be
made to pay for all the works required
for the complete development and control
of our Inland waterways.
Forests are the moat effective preventers
of floods, especially when they grow on
the higher mountain slopes. The national
forest policy, Inaugurated primarily to
avert or mitigate the timber amine which
is now beginning to be felt, has been ef
fective also in securing partial control of
floods by retarding the run-off and check
ing the erosion of the higher slopes within
the national forests. Bllll the loss from
soil wash Is enormous. It Is computed
that one-fifth of a cubic mile in volume,
or one billion tons In weight of the richest
soil matter of the t'mted States, la an
nually gathered In storm rivulets, washed
into the rivers and borne Into the sea.
The loss to the farmer Is in efTect a tax
greater than all other land taxes com
bined, and on yielding absolutely no re
turn. The Department of Agriculture Is
now devising and testing means to check
this enormous waste through Improved
methods of agriculture and forest man
agement. Many Claims oa Governnteat.
Citizens of all portions of the country
are coming to realise that, however. Im
portant the Improvement of navigation
may bes it Is only one of many ends to be
kept In view. The demand for navigation
is hardly more pressing than the demands
for reclaiming lands by Irrigation- in the
arid regions and by drainagu in the humid
lowlands, or for utilizing tn water power
now running to waste, or for purifying
tha waters so as to reduce or remove the
tax of soil waste, lo promote manufactures
and safeguared lite. It ia the part of wis
dom to adopt not a Jumble of unrelated
plans, but a single comprehensive schema
for meeting all the demands so far as pos
sible at the same time and by the same
means. Thia is the reason why the Inland
waterways commission was created In
March last, largely In response to petitions
from citizens of the Interior, Including
many of the memUtrs of this congress.
Broad Instructions were given to tha
commission in accordance with the
general policy tlici 0 plan should be pre
pared for the use of any atpeam tor a
single purpose without carefully ' consid
ering, and so far as practicable actually
providing for. tiie use of that stream for
every other purpose. Flans for navigation
and power should provide with special
care for sites and terminals not only for
the Immediate present hut also for the
future. It Is because of my conviction
In these matters that I am her. Th
Inland waterways commission has a task
broader than the consideration of water
ways alone. There 1s an intiinal relation
between our streams and the development
and conservation of all ths other great
permanunt sources of wealth. It Is not
iKissihle rightly to consider the one with
out the other. No study of th problem of
the waterways could hope to be success
ful which failed to consider also the re
maining factors In the great problem of
lonserving all our resources. Accordingly,
1 hsve asked tne waterways commission
ta take account of th orderly develop
ment and conservation, not - alone of the
waters, but also of the soil, the forests.
the mines, and all the other natural re
sources of our country.
Many of these resources which w hart
been iu the habit .of 4-alling Inexhaustible
re being rapidly exhausted, or In certain
regions nave actually aisappearua. -oai
mines, oil and gaa fields, and Iron mines
in Important numbers are already worked
out. The coal and oil measure which
remain are passing rapidly, or have actually
passed, Into the possession oi great, cor
porations, who acquire ominous power
through an unchecked control of these
prime necessities of modern life; a control
without supervision of any kind. W are
consuming our forests threa times faster
than thev ara being reproduced. Home
of the richest timber lands of this conti
nent have already been destroyed, and not
replaced, and other vast areaa are on tne
verste of destruction. Yet forests, unlike
mines, can be so handled as to yield the
best results of use, without exhaustion,
just like grain fields.
Natural Resources Abased.
Our public lands, whose highest use Is
to supply homes for our people, have been
and are still being taken In great quan
tities by large private owners, to whom
Tiomorniaking Is at the very beat but a
secondary motive subordinate to the de
sire for profit. To allow the public lands
to be worked by the tenants of rich men
for the profit of the landlords, Instead of
by freeholders for the livelihood of their
wives and children, is little less than a
crime against our people and our institu
tions, t he great central ract ot tne pumtc
land situation, as the Public Lands com
mission well said, is that the amount of
publlo laad patented by the government to
Individuals Is Increasing out of. all pro
portion to the number of new homes. It
Is clear beyond peradventure that our
natural resources have been and are still
being abused, that continued abuse will
destroy them, and that we have at last
reached the forks of the road. We are
face to face with the great fact that the
whole future of the nation la directly at
stake In the momentous decision which Is
forced upon us. Shall we continue the
waste and destruction of our natural re
sources, or shall we conserve them?
There Is no other question of equal grav
ity now before the nation.
It is the plain duty of those of us who
for the moment ire responsible to maka
Inventory of the natural resources which
have been handed down to use, to forecast
as well as we may the needs of the future,
and so to handle th great sources of our
prosperity aa not to destroy in advance
all hop for th prooperlty of our descend
ants. '
As I have said elsewhere, the conserva
tion of natural resources Is the funda
mental problem. Unless we solve that prob-
, leva it will avail us little to solve omerB.
,To aolve it, th whole nation must under
take tha task through their organizations
and associations, through the men whom
they have made specially responsible for
the welfare of the several states, and An
' ally through congress and the executive.
Aa a preliminary step, the Inland Water-
Iways commission has decided, with my full
approval, to call a conference on the con
servation of natural resources, Including,
of course, the streams, to meet In Wash
Ington during the coming winter. This
conference ought to be among the most
important gatherings in our history, for
none have a more vital question to con
Th rssaais Caaal.
There Is a great national project already
under way which renders the Ipiprovemcnt
of the Mississippi river and Its tributaries
specially needful. I mean the Panama
canal. The digging of that canal will be
of benefit to the whole country, but most
of all to the states of th Pacific slope
and the gulf; and if tha Mississippi la
properly Improved, to the states through
which It flows. The digging of th Pan
ama canal is the greatest engineering
feat which has yet been attempted on this
globe. The work has been going on most
successfully and. with fewer drawbacks and
difficulties than 1 had dared hopo. When
under our treaty with Panama we 'took
possession of th canal sone I was eon.

and because of, tho diseases which had

conditions on the Isthmus healthy, however,

papers In the spring of 1890. For a
numfeer of months he was troubled
with pain In the small of his back. At
first he gave the annoyance little
thought but as it gradually grew worse
and more persistant, the nature ot
his work being in the heat of an en
gine room during the day and the sud
den change when he went out nighty
adding to, if not bringing on, the com
plaint. He found that relief, if pos
sible, must be had. Just at this time
Ms attention was called to Doan's Kld

the trouble was quickly banished am
much to his gratification, the; cure
has been a lasting one. The merits of
