Headers of The Register will doubts less remember the meeting of the Governors called by President Roose- •velt last May to consider various phases of the great policy inaugurated by the President for the conservation of our natural resources, is hardly fair either to say that this policy was inaugurated by the Prosi den) because some of the most im poitant features of it. notaVIy that of the preservation of the forests on our public domain were alceady well established before he came into office. The policy has gained much, how ever, in breadth" -and scope and momentum under the enthusiastic advocacy of President Roosevelt, and thi meeting of the Governors was one of the most effective steps yet taken to Interest the people of the country generally in the great idea of preserving for the whoie nation the resources that belonged to the nation One of the results of this meeting was the appolntmeiit by the Presi dent of what i& known as the Natural Conservation Commission, its mem bership iwing composed of Senators Representatives, Army Officers and men In private life who have given special attention to some branch of forestry or mining, or to the ntlliza tlon of water. As one of the members of this Commission 1 was asked during the summer to take the chairmanship of a small sub-committee which would spend a week or more studying the forest situation In the Southern States, and that was one of the things which compelled mc to return to Washington sooner than might otherwise ihave been necessary. The committee, the other members of which are William Irvine, manager Chippewa Lumber & Broom Co., Chip pewa Palls. Wisconsin; Joseph H.vde Pratt, Stete Gcolopist. Chapel Hill. North Carolina, and Henry S. Graves, director Yale Forest School. Now Haven. Conn., will start south tonight and will visit points in Nortli Carolina, South' Carolina, and Tennessee, where it is expected there may be •een typical results that follow the denudation of the forests on the steep mountain sTopes. It i.s said throughout this region where the primeval forest has been stripped from the mountain sides the soil very soon washes aWay, filling >ip the streams BO as to interfere with' water iKjwer and navigation, covering the valuable farm lands with gravel and leaving the mountain sides entirely bare of covering so that when the rains fall instead, of being soaked up and let out slowly to feed rivers and sprinsc they rush down in a torrent creating .destructive floods during the rainy xtemton and leaving the streams with -wnl water when the rains cease. Sev- «ral years ago some one suggested that the United States Government ou^t to purchase these mountain slopes, re-forest such portions of them as had been denuded and prevent the deatniction of the forests that still remain. A bill was first introduf>cd In the Coagresa to carr>' this idea into effect In 1900 and has been regularly Introduced in each Congress since then. Last winter It passed the Senate and now it Is pending before the HouBo Committee on Agriculture and very greiat pressure J« iM ^Ing- hmucht to t>ear for,Its passage. It was doubt leaa this fak;t wMch prompted my appointment pn this Kub-committee and I ahall tx* very glad to acnuiro information at first hand bearing upon the problem, because It Ix one of the moHt Important that w^lll come before this Congreaa Involving as it does the BD- proprtatlon of many millions of dollars and the Inauguration, If adont- ed. of a policy which will commit the Ckiremment for all time to come to Weak Little Boys may become fine stroofi men. Some of the strong men c» tfHiay were sickly boys years ago. Many of them received. Scott's Emulsion at their motfier's knee.. This had apoMttrfaiitthat dxanaed them from wreak, ddicate boys into strong robust boys. It has the same power to-day. Boys^nd tfiris who are pale and weak get food and eneigy out of Scoits Emulsion.

I understand that to his personal friends he said privately he would introduce the bill but he had very little expectation that it would pass. But that is neither here nor there. I did not discuss the subject in my own speenhf;; l)ecause I was willing to let it be submitted without argument. Now tfcat the campaign is- over, however, it may be due to those who supported me, possibly in spite of my action in this matter, to state briefly the reasons •hat influenced me in voting for this increase. It required but a brief experience as a Member of Congress to demonstrate to me that no man could hold that position and mi>et its expenses on $5,00 (1 a yhar. I think I will be acquitted by those who know me of not having any expensive habits or living in an extravagant fashion, but yet my actual living expenses, not inclnd- "K the cost of campaign;^, either for he nomination or for the election, have exceeded $r>.(lfln eacli year since have been a .Member of Congress. With the salary at Its old figure I should have been obliged to retire n' he end of my lirst term If my other business had not fortunately been making a little money. In view of this fact 1 had frequonlly stated in private ronversation<t that the salary of a Congri'ssman ought to lie raised. iniide this statement little expecting hat I should ever l)e called upon to vote u|)on the proposition. When the question was submitted, however, and was obliged to vote one way or the other, f voted Aye. I did this know in?' that I should be criticised for it and knowing also that the measure would be passed jiist the same even if I voted against it. But^one of the resolutions I made to myself when bpcame a member of this body waf that I »!ould n^ver cast a vote in public contrab' to an opinion I had ea- preased in private, whatever the political effect mi^t be. I have fully ex nected the criticism that has come but I still believe that the vote w«8 right. An income of J7,500 a year looks large and tt would be large to anyone In private life, fiut it dwindles rapidly when It Is put up against the expenses necessarily Incident to holding an important public office. A Member of Congress, if he responds to the demands upon him, necessariljr travels a great deal, and railroad passea are a thing of the paat. He neeeaaarily stops at the best hbtsla:;.
