DBUVERBD AT KBOKUK, IOWA, TO-DAY, ON POPULAR QUESriONS CONFRONTING AMERICAN Men and Women of "Iowa: I am glad indeed tu sec you and to speak to you in this thriving city of your great and prosperous state. 1 believe with all my heart In the people of Iowa, for I think that you are good typical .-Xmericans and that among .vou there has been developed to a very high degree that body of charnctersl- ticH which we like to regard as dis ilncilvely American. During the last few yearn we of the Ignited States have been forced to con .<lder yry Herlnusly certain economic prohlefts. We have nuide a beginning In the attempt to deal with the rela Ions of the national government—that Is, with the relations of the people of the coiinlry—to the huge and wealthy cor|)orations. controlled for the most part by a few very rich men which are engaged in interstate business—especially the great railway corporations r^ou know my views on this matter. You know that I believe that the na liional government, in the interests of the people, should assume much the Baine supervision and control over tho management of the interstate common carriers that it now exercises over the national banks. You know furthermore that I believe that this supervision and control .should lie exercised in a spirit of rigid toward •he corporations, exacting Justice from ihem on liehaif of the iieople but giving them justice in return. The Fatnre of .America. Recently I have l>een reading the work of the eminent Italian scholar Perrero on the history of the Roman Repulilic. when the life of the Roman state had become that of a complex and luxurious industrial civilization I am happy to say that the differences between that civilization and our own are more striking than the re.';emblances: and there is no warrant for our l)eing drawn into any pessimistic "omparisons between the two civilizations. Hut there Is every reason why we .should study carefully the past in order to draw from it lessons for use in the present. One of the most striking features of the years which saw- he downfall of the Roman Republic was the fact that the of Rome became split between two camps one containing the rich who wished to exploit the i>oor and the other the poor who wished to plunder the rich. Naturally .under such circumstances, the public man who was for the moment successful tended to bo either a violent reactionary or a violent dama- gogue. Any such condition of politi oal life Is ns hopelessly unhealthy now as It was then, i believe so im- (dlcltly In the future of our people, be- QM Inadrcd poaodi of. Crya- tal'lea «IU make U gaUona of water raltabia (or Try It titer erican citizen will no more tolerate government by a mob ibau he will olerai'e government liy plnioeracy; hat he desires to see justice done to nd justice exacted from rich man and poor man alike. We are not trying o favor any man at the expense of ills fellows. We are trying to shape things so that as far as possible each man shall have a fair chance in life: ^o that he shall have, so far as by law his can be accomplished, the chance o show the stuff that there Is in him. We have no intention of trying to work for tho impossible and undesirable end of giving to tho lazy, the thriftless, the weak, and the vicious, he reward tliat belongs to. and in the ong run can only come to. the hai^ working, the thrifty, the re.solute and ihe honest. But we do wi.-^h to see that the necessary struggle in life shall be carried on under genuinely democratic conditions: that, so far as human action can safely provide it, there shall be an approximately fair start: that there .shall be no oppression of the weak, and that no man shall be permitted to acquire or use vast fortune by methods or in ways that are tortuous and dishonest. Good Laws XecMRary. Therefore we need wise laws, and we need to have them resolutely administered. We can got such laws and such administration only if (he lieople are alive to their Interest.s. The other day I lestened (o an admirable iormon by Bishop Johnston, of western Texas. lUa theme was that the ital el.^inent in judging any man diould l)o his conduct, and neither his )osilion nor his pretensions; and, fur- berraore, that freedom could only stay with a people which has the habit "if.self-mastery. As he said, the price liberty Is not only eternal vigll- mce.^but eternal virtue: aul I may idd. eternal common sense. Each man here knows that he himself has been able to use his freedom to advantage only provided that he could master himself, that he could control his own passions, and direct his own faciil- lies. Each of you fathers and mothers here knows that If your sons are to do well in the world (hey must know how to masd-r (hemselves. Every man muH( have a master; if he is not his own master, then somebody else will be. This is Just as true of public life as of iirivate life. If we cannot master ourselves, control ourselves, then sooner or later we shall have to submit to outside control; for there must be control some.where JoHtire to All. One way of exercising such control is through the laws of the land. Ours >s a government of liberty, but It is a government of that orderly liberty which comes by and through the honest enforcement of and obedience to the law. At intervals during the last few months the appeal has been made to me not to enforce the law against certain wrongdoers of great wealth because to do so would Interfere with the business prosperity of the country. Under the effects of that kind of frii ^t which when sufficiently acute we ciU panic. ,this appeal has been made. to me even by •men who ordinarily t>o- have as decent citltens. One newiB- pape> which has Itself strongly a4- vmneed this rlew gave prominence to the ttttment of • certain man of great w^ealth to the effect that the so- called financial wieakne .ss 'was due entirely to the admitted Intention of President Roosevelt to punish the large moneyed interests which hod transgressed the laws." I do not admit that this has been the main cntise of any business troubles that we have had; hut It is possible that it has been rt contributory canse. If BO , friends, as far as I am concerned it mm be accepted as a disagreeable featitre in a course of policy which os long ns I am President will not bo changed. In any grea( movement for rIghteoiisnesH, whore the forces of evil tire strongly Intrenched, it Is unfortunately inevitable that some unoffending people should suffer in company wUh the real offenders. This is not our fault. It is the fault of (hose to whose deceptive action these innocent people owe their false position. .\ year or two ago certain representatives of la- iMir called ujMn me apd in the course of a very plea.sant conversation told me that they regarded me as "the friend of labor." I answered that I certainly was, and that I would do everything in my power for Ihe laboring man except anything that was wrong. I have the same an .^wor to make to the business man. I will do •.•vervihing I can do to help business conditions, except anything that is wrong. And it would nut be merely wrong but infamous to fail to do all ihal can be done to secure the puuish- •nent of those wrongdoers whose deeds »re peculiarly reprehensible hecause they are not committed under the stress of want. Whenever a serious effort is made to cut out what is evil In our political life, whether (he effort takes (he shape of warring against (he ;ross and sordid forms of evil in some municipality, or whoiher it takes the ^hape of trying to soc.uro the honest enforcement of Ihe law as against very powerful and wealthy people, there ire sure to bo certain Individuals who Jomand that the movement stop lie- cause it may hurt business. In each 3a .se the answer mttst be that we earnestly hope and hellevc that, there will be no permanent damage to business from the movement, but that if righteousness conflicts with the fancied leeds of business, then the latter must sjo to the wall. We cannot afford to substitute any other test for that of guilt or Innocence, of wrongdoing or welldoing. In Judging any man. If a man does well. If he acts honestly, be has nothing to fear from this Administration. Hut so far as in me lies the corrufit politician, great or small, the private citizen who transgresses the law—be ho rich or poor—shall be 1^ Theodore RoosoTell, President. ciiise I ln^llf^ve that the average Anj-^^irouKht before the Impartial justice of a court. Perhaps I am most anxious to get at the politifian who i.-< corrupt, he bctrayn a great (rust: hut assiirofHv f shall not spare his brother corriiplionist who shows himself a swindler in business lifeT and. according to our power, crimes of fraud and cunning shall he prosccuto.i as relentlessly as crimes of briitali- y and physical violence, fharacter of People Important. We need good laws and we ii*f>d above all things the hearty aid of good citizens in stipporting and enforcing the laws. Nevertheless, men and women of this great Stale, men and women of the Middle West, never forget hat law and the administration of law important though they are. must al-. ways occupy a wholly secondary place as compared with (he character of (he average citizen him.self. On this trip I shall speak lo audiences in cash of which there will be many men who fotight in the civil war. You who wore the hhte and your brothers fif the South who wore the gray know that in war no general no matter how good, no organization no matter how perfect can avail if the a\'erage man in the ranks has not got the fighting edge< We need the organisation, the prep- -iratlon; we need the good general; but we need most the fighting edge in the individual soldier. So it is in private life. W« live in a rough, work- a day world, and we{ are yet a long way from (he milleni im. We can not is a nation and we 'an not as indi- idunls afford to cii tivate only the gentler, softer qualities. There must be gentleno.oa and tenderness—the strongest men are gentle and tender— but there must also be courage and strength. I have a hearty s>-mpathy with those who believe in doing all that can be done for peace; but I have no sympathy at all with those who believe that in the world as it now is we can afford to see the average American citizen lose the qualities that in their sum make up a good fighting man. Vou men must be workers who work with all your heart aud strength ind mind at your several tasks In life; and you must also be able to fight at need. You women have even higher and more dllllcult duties; for I honor no man, not even the soldier who flghlH for righteousness, much as I honor the good woman who does her duty as wife and mother. Out if she shirks her duty as wife and mother (hen she stands on a par with the man who refuses to work for himself and his family, for those dependent upon him, and who in time of th (1 nation's need refuses to fight. The man or woman who shirks his or her duty occupies a contemptible position. You are here as the sons and daughters of the pioneers. I preach to you no life of ease. I preach to you the life of effort, the life that finds its highest satisfaction in doing well some work that is well worth doing. So much for what concerns'^every man and every woman in this coimfry. Now, a word or two os to matters which are of peculiar interest to this region of our country. Hirer Narfntloa taBortaat Since I have been Fresident I have traveled in every State of this Union tut my traTeliOK has been almost en- tirdr on railroads, save now and than by wagon or on horseback. Now I have the chance to try traveling by river; to go down the greatest of our rivers, the Father of Waters. A good many years ago when I lived in th« Northwest 1 traveled occasionally on tlie Upper .Missouri and its tributaries; but then we went in a llatboal and ilJil our own rowing aud paildlin? anil iKiling. Now I am to try a steamboat. I am a groat believer in our railway system; and the fact that 1 am very firm in my lieiief as to the neco .ssity of (he tlovf rnnient exercis ing a projier supervision and control over the railroads does in the least Interfere with the other fact that I greatly admire the large majority of the men in all positions, from the top to the bottom, who build and run thcjn \et, of course I am anxious to see these men, and therefore the corporations, tlioy roprcsenf or serve, achieve I ho fiillost measure of legitimate prosperity, nevertheless as this country tri-ows I fofJ that wo can not have (00 many hipbways. tind that in addition lo tho iron highroads of our railway .sj-stem we should also utilize the great river highways which have been given us by nature. From a variety of causes thesr. highways have In many parts of the country been almost abandoned. This Is not healthy. Our people, and ofepeclally the representatives of tho pr .ople in tlio National Congress, should give tho '.r mo .^t careful attention to ths subjocf. Wo should be )irepnred to put the nation collectively b.ick of the movement lo Improve tht .m for tho nation's use. Our knowledge at this time is not such as to permit mo tn go. Into details, or to say (lofliiiioly jMKt what the n.itlon .should do; liiit most assureilly our groat navigable rivers are nadonal a.s- Kfts just as iiiiich as our ureal fcsi- coast Imilxir.--. R .\ucll> a .s it is for the 'ntoro .qt nf p\] the country that our •-'roat harbors should be fitted to re- ce've in anfoty the largest vessels of the morcliant rioot.s of the world, so by dooponing and olhorwwo our rivr .rs should bo fitted to boar their part in the movement of onr merchandise; .ind this is especially irur. of Uie Mississippi «)).! ii.s tributaries, wthich drain the immense and prosperous reg'on which makes in very fact the heart of our nation: the basin of tho Great Ijikos I;i.Mig united already with the basin of the Mississippi, and both ••egions being identical in tlielr pro- 'luots and inteiesiR.

You in Iowa have many niauufactur- liig centers, but you remain, and I hope will alwa >-s remain, a great agr- cultural State 1 hopr. that the meani? of transporting your commodities to market will be steadily improved; hul this will be nf no use unless .vou keep producing ilie commodities, and in the long run this will largely doprnd upon .vour being able lo keep on the farm a hi .gh type of cilizenshlp. The effort must mo to iiiako farm life not only• ri.'nuiierai ivi> hut aliractlvo. so that tlio best young mou and girls will feel inclinoil to stay on tlje farm aud not go to tlip cii.v. Nothin.g is more imiKiriant to this country than the perpetuat'on of our system of medium- sized farms worked by their owners. We do not want 10 see our farmers sink to the condition of the peasants of the Old World, tiaroly able to live on their small holdings, nor do we want to see tl.oir places taken by wealthy men owning enormous estate.s which thpy work purely by tenants and hired servants. At present the onllnary farmer holds his own in the land as against any possiblo representative of the landlord class of farmer—that ir. of the men who would own' vast estnios —<)ecause tho ord^narj' farmer unites his capital, his labor and his brains with (lie makins of a permanent fam 'ly home, and thus can afford to hold his land at a value at which it can not bo held by the capitalist, who would have to nin it by Ipnsing it or by cul- •ivatlng It af arm's length with hired 'abor. In other words, the typical American farmer of today gets his remuneration in part in the shape of an <iidci)endent home for his family, and thta gives him an adv.-'.ntag.^ over an lUsonteft landlord. Now, from tho standpoint of the nation as a whole it is preeminentlv do .sirabIe to keep as ine of our chief American t.vp ?8 the farmer, the farm home maker, of the medium sized farm. This type of farm home is one of our stirmgest political and social bulwarks. Such a farm worked by the owner has proved by experience the best place in which to breed vigorous leaders alike for] country and city. It is a matter of nrlme economic and civic importance to eBcourage this type of bome-owahiri fiitiner. S<*hoolH Cooperation Tom Ing. Therefore, we should strive in every way to old iu the education of the farmer for the farm, and should 'shape our school system with this end In view; and so vitally Importiint i .s (his that, in my opinion, the Federal Government should co-operate wtth the State governments to secure tho iioeded change and Imjirovemenl • In iiiir.schools. It Is slgnldeant that lioth from Minnesota and Georgia there have come, proposiils In this direction In tha appearance of bills introduced into the National Congress, The Congressional land grant act of 1852 ac- CDmplished much in esiabUshing the agricultural colleges in the severiil States, and therefore in preparing to turn ths system of educational traiii ing. for the young into channels at once broader and more practicable-^ and what I am saying about asrricu^ tiiral training really applies to all industrial training. But the COHOKOS can not r^ach the masses, and it is c.ssen tial that the mass?s should be reached Such agricultural schools as those in Minnesota and Xebra.ska for farm boys and girls, such technical high schools as are to be found, for in stance. In both St. Louis and Washington, have by their success shown that It Is entirely feasible to carry in practical fashion the fundamentals of industrial training Into the realms of our secondary schools. At present there is a gap betwran our primary schools in coimtry and city and the industrial collegiate courses, which must bs closed, and if necessary the Nation must help the State to close it. Too often our present schools tend to put altogether too great a premium up on ni.-'re literary education, and therefore to train away the farm .ind tho shop. Tlie Future Home Makers. We should reverse this process. Specific training of a practical kind should be given to the boys and girls who when men and women are to make up the back bone of this nation by working in agriculture. In the me- chahical industries, in arts and trades; in short, who ore to do the duty that should always come first with all of us, the duty of home-making and home keeping. Too narrow a literary education is, for most men and womc^, not a real educallon at all; for u real education should fit people primarily for the industrial and lionie-miiMng employments In which they must employ the bulk of their activities. Our country offers unparalleled opportunities for domestic and social advancement, for .social and economic leadership In the world. Our greatest iiatiuual ushTCt is to be found in the children. They need to be trained to high ideals of everyday living, and to high eflruiency in their respective vocations; we can nor afford to have them trained otherwise, and the nation should help the State.-? to achieve this end. Now, men of Iowa. 1 want to s .T,y just a word on a matter that concerns not the States of the Mississippi Valley itself, but the States west of them, the Slates of the Great Plain and the Rocky Mountains. Unfortunately, f ain not able on this present trip to visit tho ?e States, or I should spctk lo their own people on the point to which I now intend to allude; but after all anything that affects a ronsid- orable number of Americans who live under one set of conditions, must be of moment to all other Americans, fo never forget, friend .s. that in tho long run we shall all go up or go down together. Danger in Land G'raft. The States of the high plains and of the mountains have a peculiar claim upon me, because for a number of years I lived and worked in them, and I have that, intimate knowledge of their people that comes under such condition!!. In those States there is need of a modification of the land laws that have worked so well in the well- watered fertile regions to the eastward, such as those in which you here dwell. Tlio one object in all our land, laws should alw .iys lie to favor tho' actual settler, the actual home-maker, who comes to dwell on the land aud there to bring up his children to inherit it after him. The Government should part with its title to the lan/i only to the actual home-maker—not (o the profit-maker, who does not care to make a home. The land should be sold outright only in qnahtides sufficient for decent homes—not In huge areas to be held for speculative purposes or used as ranches, where those who <lo the actual work are merely rary prosperity of any class of men could in (he slightest degree atone for failure on our part to shape the laws .so that they may work for the permanent good of the homemaker. This is fundamental, gentlemen, and Is simply carrying out the Idea upon which I dwell In speaking to you of your own farms here In Iowa. Now In many States where the rainfall is light .it is a simple absurdity to expect any man to live, .still less to bring up a family, on. one hundred and sixty acres. Where we are able to introduce irrigation, the homestead can be very much less tn size—can. for instance, be fort yacres; and there is nothing that congress has done during the past six years more important than the enactment of the national irrigation law. But where irrigation is not applicable and the land can only be used for grazing, it nuy be that you can not more than one steer to ten acres, and it is not necessary to be much of a mathematician In order to see that where such is the case a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres will not go far toward the support of a family. In conaeouence of this fact, homesteaders do not taha up the lands ip the tracts tn qaeation. They ara left to. The result Is that the men who use them moderately and not with a view to exhausting their resources are at the mercy of those who care nothing for Ihe future and simply intend to skill the land In the present. For instance, the small sheep farmer who has a home ond who wishes that hoine to puss on to his children Improved In value will naturally riiu his flock so that ttii> hiud will supiion it, not only to-day, but ten years hence; but big absentee sheep owner, who has no home on tho land at all, but simply owns huge migratory flocks of sheep may well find it to his profit to (lr\K-e them over the small sheei) farmer's range and eat it all out. lie can then drive his flocks on, whereas the small man can not. Of course, to permit such a state of things is not only evil for the small man, but is destructive of the best interests of the country Substantially the same conditions obtain as regards cattle. The custom has therefore grown up of fencin great tracts of Government land without warrant of law.: The men who fenced this land wer^ sometimes rich men, who. by fencingj it, kept out actual .settlers and thereby worked evil to the country. But i in many cases, whether they were large men or small men. their object was'not to keep out actual settlers, btit to protect themselves and their own industry by preventing overgrazing of the range on tho part of reckless stock owners who had not place in the permanent development of the country and who were indifferent to everything except the profits or the moment. To permit the continuance of this illegal fencing inevitably tended to very grave abuses, and the Government has therefore forced tho fencers to take down their fences. In doing this wo have not only obeyed and enforced tho law. but we have corrected many flagrant abuses. Nevertheless, we have also caused hard.ship, which, though unavoidable. I was exceedingly unwilling lo cause. In some wny^or other we riitist provide for the use of the public range under conditions which shall Inure primarily to the benefit of the actual settlers on or near it and which shall prevent its being wasted. This means that in some shape or way the fencing of pasture land must he permitted under restrictions which win safeguard the rights of actual settlers. I desire to act as these actual settlors to have me In this matter. I wish to find out their needs and doslros and then to try to init them Into effect. But they must take trouble, must look ahead to their own uUimate and real good, must insist upon boing really represented by their pitlilic men. if wo are to have a good result. A little while ago I received a very manly and sensible letter from oun of the piolili- nont momberp of the T>aramio County, Wyo., Cattle and Horse Growers' Association. My correspondent remarked incidentally in his letter: "I am a small ranchman, and have to plow and pitch hay myself," and then went on to .say that the great majority of their people had complied with the governmental order, had removed their fences and sold their cattle, but that they must get some kind of a' lease law which would permit them to graze their stock under proper conditions or els^ it would, be ruinous to them to continue in (he business. The (hing r hiive most at b»ar* as regards this suliject is to do whatever will be of permanent benefit to just exactly the people for whom this correspondent of mine spoke—the small ranchmen wlio have to plow and pitch hay themselves. All I want to do is to find out what will be to their real benefit, for that Is certain to be to the benefit of the country as a whole. It may be that we can secure their interests best by permitting ail homesteaders in the dry country to individually or a certain number of them together, big tracts of range for summer use, the tracts being proportioned to the number of neighborhood homesteaders who wish to run their cattle upon it. It may be that parts of the range will only be valuable for companies that C4in lease it and put large herds on it; for the way properly to develop n region is to put it to those tises (o which it is best adapted. The amount 10 bo paid for the leasing privilege is to me a matter of comparative indifference. The Government does not wish to make money out of the range, but simply to provide for the neces.sary supervision that will prevent its being eatei* out or exhausted; that is, that will secure it undamaged as an n.s.tet for the next generation, for the children of the present home-makers.
