Expressing the opinion that the Unit
ed states- government would do better
to encourage the development of more
farms Instead of more battleships. B.
F. Yoaknui, chairman ot tbe executive
committee of the . Rock Island-Frisco
railroad system, recently delivered at
Shawnee, Okla.j before the Farmers'
union of Oklahoma a notable address
on tbe partnership between tbe rail
roads and tbe farmers.;. Be said In
part: v, . ' .
"Tbe farmers and, tbe railroads are
natural partners. Tbe first thing in
quired about by an investor in new
railroad securities Is the character of
the country which tbe road will serve.
If it can be shown that tbe territory to
be served by tbe new railroad is a good
"farming country the greatest trouble-
in finding tbe money to build bas been
overebme. On the other band, tbe first
question a farmer seeking a location
in a new country asks is 'What are
its railroad facilities?
"Tbe things most needed by the
farmer and tbe railroad, but which are
neglected, to the detriment of both, are-
a better acquaintance and closer work
ing relations. These mutual benefits
can be attained through the officers of
the Farmers'-, union, representing the
producers, .and the officers of the rail-
roads, representing tbe carriers, deal
ing directly with each other;
"This Country now needs what our
forefathers used in laying- its founda
tiona lot of old fashioned common
' Farmer Has Good Judgment.-;
"Good judgment and fair dealing are
found more generally among farmers
than in persons in other occupations.
and when tbey earnestly take bold Of
nnhlic Questions tbey - will occupy a-
place in our political structure that will
make their good judgment and '-f air
conclusions felt more and more. In solv.-.
ihg the relations of the government
and its institutions.. "
"The United States government nine
teen ypars ago commencied tbe -con
struction of the Illinois and Mississippi
canal. Its length is seventy-five miles,
and it has cost to date, with interest
at 3 per cent, over $9,000,000. or $120,-
000 per mile., To maintain this canals
in its present useless condition costs
the country's taxpayers $90,000 a year.
exclusive of interest on the investment.
A freight boat bas never--passed
through it. .
: "1 mention this to illustrate- one un
dertaking of the many which, through
the lack of system or intelligent plan
ning In advance of the construction of
our inland waterways, make up the
$80,000,000 which is referred to by
Commissioner Herbert Knox Smith as
wasted. -. -'.,'.
, "The government has expended ap
proximately $225,000,000 on tbe im
provement of tbe Mississippi river and
its tributaries.: The tonnage bandied
over the waters of The Mississippi last
year was one-third less than It was
twenty years ago.
. Should Make More Farms.;
"The. story of government extrava
gance of this kind is being ' told so
broadly through tbe newspapers that
the masses are beginning to .' realize
that something is wrong.

The same disregard of tbe value of
money would send toe strongest pri
vate business in this country into bank
ruptcy. 4 . proper use of the pruning
knife in a downward revision of ex
penses would bring surprising results.
It is not practicable to itemize where
reductions should be made. . but they
must come. ' The -deficit should be
cared for by reducing expenditures and
not by- raising taxes to increase rev
enues."'. ' '" ' :' . '
'The European nations are teaching
us a lesson. Tbe controversies in Ens-
land, the recent troubles in Spain, tbe
unrest in Russia, the quarreling over
military taxes . in Germany and the
struggle against new taxes In France
should strengthen our faith in the
proposition that It is better to grow
more farm products and make pros
perous' the man who sows and har
vests, than to build more battleshiDS
and new guns.

"A forty acre farm of irrigated land
will comfortably support a family- of
