Substitute Sensible, Practical Poli

Cause of Homesteader.
OREGON IAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, June . 27. An eloquent tribute
was paid the hardy settler who la reclaiming-
the arid West, In the con
servation speech delverd In the Senate
Just previous to adjournment by Sen
ator Borah, of Idaho, and combined with
this tribute was an equally eloquent
plea for the abandoning of theoretical
ideas of conservation, and the substi
tution of sensible, practical policies
which will tend toward true conserva
tion. This feature of Borah's speech has
not heretofore been quoted, though It
constituted one of the best features of
his remarks on conservation. In tak
ing up and espousing- the cause of the
settler, Borah said:
"Out Jm the desert in the West, strug
gling inevery way which their Ingenu
ity can' devise to protect their homes
until the water which they stand ready
to pay for and which the Government
promised to deliver reaches them, are
men and women from every state In
the Union. There Is not a Senator upon
this floor who would not be able to
find some of the best citizens of his
state, connected with the best families
of his commonwealth lately removed
.here.
People Anxious for Home.
"They are anxious to get a home.
Gradually, through delay of the Gov
ernment, they are being forced into
absolute need. To leave them. In the
ituation of victims of the Govern
ment's invitation and dilatory methods
when they offer to pay every dollar of
expense, would be a shameless be
trayal of public duty which no Con
gress will do when It fully understands
the situation.
"Not a dollar of expense will ever
fall to the Government. The home
steader stands ready to have the en
tire burden put upon his land. He only
asks that the Government fulfill Its
contract and that he be given a chance
to secure a home at his own expense
upon what is known as the American
desert.
"Turning the desert into a prosper
ous community at the expense and
through the energy of the settlers
alone looks to me like practical con
servation. This ought to enlist the
enthusiasm and support of those who
are earnest and devoted believers In
conserving our natural resources. If
those who believe the principle of con
servation to be the greatest question
of. today continue to 'pass by on the
other side' from the men engaged In
the actual struggle for existence, the
American people will come to believe
after while that after all this is but
an ostentatious and Pharisaical display
of efforts that live only in dress parade.
"While conventions are being held
and literature teems with plaintive
platitudes about caring for the 'small
man,' about looking after the Interests
of: all the people, while speeches in
Congress and out of Congress deal with
the 'consecration to the cause of giving
every man an equal chance,' while we
are being told that the first considera
tion of our republic Is to have a Nation
of homes, the real man in the case, the
home-builder, is marooned on the- Am
erican desert, fighting the real battle
of conservation.
Picture Well Portrayed.
"I have no doubt that as be looks
out; upon the burning desert, cleared
for cultivation and waiting for four
and five years for water, estimating
how much longer he can possibly hold
out, he is greatly moved by this dis
cussion which is going on about scenic
beauty and hunting parks and the fear
ful situation of generations yet un
born.. While his wife and children suf
fer privations of pioneer life, deprived
of schools; while he is threatened from
day to day with cancellation of his title
to his homestead upon which he has
put his last dollar, he is no doubt
cheerejfl with the news that Andrew
Carnegie has promised to deliver an
. address to the conservation congress
on haw to make home life on the farm
.'pleasant. " ,'
.-. "If he seems stolid to all other mat
ters, if he is not moved by the eloquence
; of Mr. Carnegie, who has earnestly and
energetically devoted his entire life to
; conserving all the natural resources In
sight, .Jie will, certainly be unusually
j hopeful when he learns that by an ex
traordinary maneuver the Secretary of
Vthe Interior has -withdrawn 10,000 acres
of power sites in the Sawtooth Monn
;' tains, which will undoubtedly prevent
some grinding monopoly from exacting
'exorbitant charges from the only In
habitants of that fertile region the
.mountain goats. By this time the home
steader Is ready for retirement to
pleasant dreams, and he opens his fam
ily Bible and reads:
i " Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah
j-prophesy of you, saying this people
Jdraweth nigh unto me with their mouths
innrt honoreth me with their lips, but
their heart is far from me."
' "I presume that most of us have
heard a good deal of late with reference
"to conserving the natural resources for
the benefit of the . 'small man.' I do
not kaiiw of anyone who la opposed to
' that proposition. I. do know that the
only nian who has suffered by reason
of the present policy Is the small man.
!J know that where that policy has
pinched it has been the small man.
"I do know that the advantages -which
Tiave been derived from the policy have
been with the large men. I do not
''mean to say for a moment that that is
'the intention or the purpose of those
.'who are advocating that policy. I do
;'Fay, however, that it is the result of
it, and those who are in favor of con
serving our natural resources for the
benefit, of the individual citizen must
modify their policy which is at present
obtaining with reference to this all
Important question. s-
Lt them cease to deal with theories
and take up the question of serving
the 'small, man,' and we will Join them.
But we liave seen the 'small man', driven
from ;'tiis homestead, driven to other
lands, and we are no longer infatuated
by lay sermons upon virtues which no
oane man challenges."

ZION CITY, 111., June 27. (Special. )
"We will fight this invasion to the
death," is the statement attrfouted to
General Overseer Glenn H. Vollva. of
Zion City, referring to an invasion of the
sacred precincts of Zlon by the Metho
dlsts. who yesterday dedicated a modest
chapel inside the city.
Bishop McDowell and a long list of
Methodist dignitaries assisted In the
ceremonies, and they say they are in
Zion to stay and grow. If so they will
probably prove an extremely large thorn
In the flesh of Overseer Voliva, for the
excellent reason that his own camp is
badly divided. The independents In Zion
hailed the advent of the Methodists
warmly and sent a delegation of elders to
the dedication of the chapel.
The new church will have the backing
of business Interests outside and Over
seer Vollva has the battle of his life cut
out If he undertakes to. exterminate the
Invader.
The Methodists dedicated their chapel
in the forenoon yesterday, and In the aft
ernoon Voliva, speaking at the taberna
cle, hurled his defiance. This draws the
lines of battle clearly and some interest
ing developments may be expected.
The Methodists will seek out the suf
fering in the city and not permit them to
die without attention. The recent case
of an aged elder being suffered to expire
of a rattlesnake bite, while Voliva re
fused aid aside from the customary pray
ers. Is a case in point.
Voliva, it is understood, had just real
ized his dream of securing control of a
majority of the land holdings, in which
case he would have become a dictator
more powerful even than was John Alex
ander Dowle, founder of the city.
At present there is strife between the
aldermen, two sets claiming election
After the death of Dowle and the subse
quent failure, the advent of a receiver
tore down much of the Chinese wall sur
rounding the city. The followers of Dowle
broke up into numerous factions which
warred upon each other. Voliva has sue
ceeded in aligning several of these fac
tions with his cause, but the opposition
still Is very strong.
SENATOR SEES ROOSEVELT
(Continued From First Pse.)
the report published today that an
operation on his throat was to nave
been performed this morning. He
laughed aloud in his boyish, way.
"Why the first I heard of it." he said,
"was when Senator La Follette ar
rived here and told me he read that
report. I have ne-er even heard of the
doctor who It was said would perform
that operation. How do you suppose
such stories about me become current?
You can see for yourself not only that
there is nothing wrong' with my throat,
but that I am in perfect physical con
dition." La Follette Not "Summoned."
Getting back to the La Follette con
ference, the Colonel wished to make
it clear that he had not "summoned"
Senator La Kollette. Mr. La Follette and
Senator Burkett and Representative
Madison, he said, had wired him asking
if they might come to Sagamore Hill.
It was so late In the morning when
he found the telegrams amid the day's
grist of mall and wire messages that
although he telegraphed for the three
insurgents to" come, only Senator La
Follette received the reply In time to
reach here today. The others he ex
pects soon. As he finished this ex
planation, the Colonel took up his ax.
"One more and I'll quit."
All the way down to the gate the
whack, whack, whack of the wood
chopper's steady blows could be heard
resounding through the woods.
