PORTRAITS OF TWO PRINCIPAL OFFICERS OF TRANS
Save Forests, Says Pinchot.
Mr. Plnchot was given a hearty ov.
tion as he began his speech. All morn
ing he had been handshaking those
about the hall and. when he arose to
speak, deafening applause greeted him,
"That the National duty lies in the
direction of conservation there is no
doubt." he said. "I can conceive of no
higher plane of duty than that we con
serve our vast resources along the lines
of the Roosevelt policies, and to these
policies I am committed.
"It is folly for us to say there is
land In plenty and forests In plenty,
when we know that our forests are
being depleted far more swiftly than
it is possible for us to reforest. We
have forests in plenty for the present
generation and perhaps for the next,
but in the years to come there will be
famine a-plenty if we do not at this
time take the stitch In time.
"Conservation on the line laid down
by Roosevelt will not only keep our
present forests, but will give us lum
ber when we nee it most. To save
these forests now may require much
self-denial, but it will give the country
resourcus in the years to come.
Following his plea for the forests, he
urged reclamation and said It lies witn
the West to' make fertile with its own
labor the vast tracts which would
otherwise be lost. He promised the
aid of the Government in every mer
itoriou enterprise looking toward con,
Xoble Is for Conservation.
John W. Noble. ex-Secretary of the
Interior, spoke on conservation of for
erts and water rights. He said the
forest reserve laws did not contem
plate paring down the reserves by the
relinquishments or tracts lor private
settlement or for grazing where they
were needed to preserve water supply.
There was no substantial ground to
criticise the reserves as made, it be
ing admitted that they were needed to
grow timber and to preserve the soil
from being swept away. Public opinion
showed a purpose that the country's
natural resources, believed to be essen
tial to the Nation's vitality and prog
ress, should be protected from private
and particularly corporate greed and
monopoly, and controlled for the publio
elfare now and hereafter.
The benefits were National in char
acter, extending from the state where
the reserves were created to every
state along the streams which rose in
the reserves, and individual and local
community Interests could not be con
sidered at the expense of the public
good. The lesser claim on these re
sources must yield to the greater.
For All, Not for Monopolies.
It was apparent, the speaker con
tinued, that the great benefits of the
forest and water resources, if they were
ailowed to fall into the hands of indi
viduals, and particularly corporations,
would be administered fop the greatest
pecuniary gain possible to the owners.
He said that, if the National Govern
ment or the several state governments
where they had obtained similar re
serves, lightly allowed them to become
monopolized by individuals or com
binations, they would be deemed to
have abdicated the very seat of govern
ment and. after having so long pre;
tended to protect the people, would
have at last turned them over, cribbed
and penned, to their oppressors. The
very least that could be expected of the
Government would be to keep ultimate
control of all rules and regulations, so
that the ministration of the trust could
r.ot be successfully perverted.

HARRIMAN STRIKES BLOW
(Continued From First Page.)
ht the Inauguration by the Union Pa
clflr of its through train service over the
Northern Pacific to Puget Sound points
hnrt heen abandoned indefinitely. une
only explanation obtainable at the local
Vfarriman offices yesterday for the aban
donment of this proposed service was
the announcement that it had been 1m
possible for the Harriman road to pro
cure the necessary equipment for the ser
vice. It was declared that notning or
an official nature regarding the subject
had been received from the head offices
at Chicago, and until these advice have
been received confirmation of yesterday's
rumor cannot be expected.
Sonnd Service Overlooked.
Inability of the Harriman system to s
semble extra equipment by which to op
erate a service to Puget Sound is re
garded as a lame excuse for deferring
without date the Inauguration of a pass
enger service between this city and Ta
coma and Seattle. ' Announcement that
Htll has taken a hand in the Deschutes
railroad situation and Is personally sup
plying the funds with which the Oregon
Trunk expects to build a competing line
Into Central Oregon, regardless of the
operation of the Harriman system. Is
believed to be the real reason for a post
ponement of the Union Pacific train ser
vice to Puget Sound, especially when It
has been heralded repeatedly that such
an agreement had been reached between
Hill and Harriman for the joint use by
the latter of the Northern Pacific track
to the Washington cities.
Terminal Situation Worse.
For the very same reason It Is gravely
suspected that tlie promised settlement
of the terminal situation and other points
of difference between the two rival rail
road generals, especially affecting Port
land and Its interests, has been longer de
ferred. It Is naturally to be expected
that Harriman will resent the threatened
Invasion of his long-time enemy of a ter
ritory Harriman has regarded as his ex
clusive property. Just to what extent
this resentment will be manifested Is, of
course, a matter of conjecture, but the
unofficial announcement of an indefi
nite postponement of the execution of the
Hill-Harriman compact respecting the
operation of a Seattle train service Is
regarded as exceedingly significant at
this stage of the game.

SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 18. (Spe
cial.) Wheat harvest Is about half
over at Ritzvllle, Adams County, and
the yield is not as good as counted upon
a month ago. E. H. Herring, who is
cutting with a combine, is making 35
bushels per acre on his farm 15 miles
south, and it Is understood the yield
over the flat is good. A. S. Newland,
four miles west. Is making about 25
bushels per acre, and says that is about
as good as there is in his vicinity. In
some localities the yield is much lighter
than 25 bushels.
In Reardan, Lincoln County, harvest
has only just been started and but very
little threshing has been done. Only
two reports have been received on the
yield, showing an average of 25 bush
els per acre, the quality being all No. 1,
At Wilson Creek about 50 per cent
of the wheat crop has been cut and 25
per cent threshed. Northeast of there
the wheat has averaged 20 bushels, but
the light crop In the southern part of
the territory will bring the average
down to 16 bushels per acre.
Harvest weather Is Ideal and nearly
all the farmers in the Harrington wheat
belt have their combined harvesters or
headers In the field caring for their
crops. Yields on Fall plowing are mak

HUME'S MONOPOLY ENDED
Anybody Can Catch Salmon Xow la
Rogue River, Says Court.
MARSHFIELD, Or Aug. 18. (Spe
cial.) Attorneys have returned from
Wedderburn, in Curry County, where
they went to take part in a lawsuit In
volving the fishing rights on Rogue
River. Twelve men who were employed
by the Union Fisheries Company, fish
ing for salmon, were arrested for tres
pastng on the tidelands of the estate of
the late R. D. Hume.
Herbert Hume holds a lease for the
fishing right from the estate, and his
manager, John Hume, complained that
the employes of the Union Company
were drawing up their nets on the
Hume land. The estate owns 12 miles
upon each side of the river, and the
company has to load the fish in boats
anchored in the river. It is asserted
they had been lately trespassed and
the arrest followed. The fishermen
were taken before Judge Daly and dis.
charged, the court holding that the
Hume lease was not good.
R. D. Hume during his life succeeded
in keeping all others from catching
salmon In the Rogue River.
