DK.WER. (":et. S -In a spee.h to the
Public laiKla convention here totlas.
President Taft flatly disagreed V itli the
sentiment of tha; convention in leaid
to the leasing of public lands by the
federal government, expressed In r so
lutions, adorted yesterday. The president
declared that the west needed capital to
develop Its public lanus and said that
only through a feleral leasing system
could the capital he induced to come west.
President 'iaft arrived here at 9 o'clock
and was Immediately taken to the Coun
try club, where he was guest of Tale
alumni at breakfsst. His train was de
layed two hours by a washout.
The president spoke In the Auditorium,
built to hold more than 11,000 persons,
and few seats were vacant. In eplte of
his disagreement with the views ex
pressed by the convention the president
was well received. When he made some
of his points against the proposal of the
convention that either public ltrnds be
disposed of to Individuals or else placed
under the care of the separate states
the crowd applauded vigorously.
At one point In his speech the 'presi
dent was discussing the public domain;
in general terms.
"Who owns the publlo domain, ."4
President?" shouted an old man sltr'n;!
Just under the platform.
"The United States owns the public
domain." said Mr. Taft, showing some
heat, "and the United rUates is the peo
ple of the United States."
The president said that he knew that he
was In a peculiar position, since the con
vention had already leached Its verdict
with respect to puVllc lands.
"I know," said 'r. Taft. . "how Irri
tating it Is to havi somebody else lay
down rules for your moral uplift, but
you've got to stand, a great deal In order
to make progress. I will end as I began.
I am not In agreement with your ver
Pleads for Concessions.
President Taft pleaded for concessions
upon the part of the convention and
suggested that when men were sent to
Washington to argue with congressional
committees about matters affecting the
public lands and the policy of conserva
tion they should not be tied with strings
ho they could have no leeway.
The president said that the discussion
of conservation, at least east . of the
Missouri river, had not reached a stage
where points of difference were looked
at calmly and dispassionately.
From the mistakes of the past, be said.
the country will now learn to go about
saving Its natural resources In the best
way possible and with the best results.
Mr. Taft admlted that In the old days
public land had been grabbed In many
Instsnces by corporations and combina
tions and declared that to prevent a
tepetitlon of such grabbing was the work
of the present and future.
erstera Will Vindicate Itself.
While the west, he aald, might fret
under a system that seemed slow, In
the end It would prove the best.
"We may 'kick' against the situation
as It is, but you ari prosperous out here
In the west and know that kicking
against the pricks does not help you. It
doesn t do to abuse everybody that
doesn't help a bit. Certain of us can
stand it and have got to the point where
It is a normal condition."
This aally, directed apparently at him
self, appealed to the audience and
caused much laughter.
The president explained that he does
not desire, through a federal leasing sys
tem of public lands, to fill the treasury
with funds that fh ill lie there unused,
but pointed o it that filling the treasury
would aid the west In getting appropria
tions In the future.
"I'm president of the whole republic,"
ha aald, "and what I am trying to do Is
to get you together. Tour proposition la
that the leaalcg system wont' bring cap
ital to the west and my proposition Is
that It will. I am appealing against your
Mr. Taft spoke highly of the work of
Secretary of the Interior Fisher and
briefly defended the administration's
reclamation policy. ,
