I Electrical Securities company, chairman

flnghouae Church Kerr company, and a
; Siember of the board of directors of the
Korthern Colorado Power company, says.
t Mr. Wallace does not make that state
vent in so many words, bul
, what be means.
: ' Mr. Wallace arrived In Dearer today
to Inspect the plant of the Northern
v Colorado Power company, under, coo
. amotion" at Lafayette, Colorado. iy
"Would President Roosevelt be a de
sirable person to be placed ta charg-e sf
work on the Panama canal r- was asked
. Mr. Wallace, . , '.''
' President Mot Competent. '
1 do not cars to make a direct reply
to the question,'' answered Mr, Wallace,
: 'but I will say this. The man who has
active char of the work should be
able - to -conceive.- deal in, execute and
administer. Xou cannot take a man oat
of politics, a man who has spent his
Ufa in politics, who has always bsld
salaried government' positions,, and ex
pect him to take charge of such a, proj
ect as the Panama eanal. :r- ' -'Such
an undertaking as thS canal re
qutrea a man of ripe experience. A ian
who hsS SU.ths dualities of. 4 profea
sional engineer.. He must not only pos
sess the Imagination to conceive suah
a plan, but he must have all. tha other
qualities which I have mentioned, me
power te design, execute and administer.
"V wish It understood that ( make
ns criticism ef anr one," said Mr. Wal
lace. "I am simply replying to your
auestlon In a general way. There Is no
clsss of men mors proud of their work
and who will not continue to be con
nected with affairs that will tn any way
work to Injure tha reputation aa effl
dent men than engineers.
7"Aa engineer Is a professional man,
Some engineers can perhaps, draw
plan of a power house, or can tell what
unite go to make up sucn a plant uut
largs projects require men who know
all branches of ths work, and sucn men
are professional men in tno nignesi
sense of tha word." '
Mr. Wallace would not discuss the
affairs which led to his retirement from
the servloo of Uncle 8am. but he made
this general statement!
"When an expert engineer is called la
to take charge of a largs undertaking
be means to take charge of it Ths
ssms idea holds good in regard to a phy
sician who will not tolerate interfer
ence with his prescriptions or orders but
uses his professional education to ao-
complleh desired results.
"It Is the sams with a prefesslsnal en
gineer. He will not be disturbed with
orders from Influential political friends
or from any one else. Tou cannot ex
pect a man who bas not had the educa
tion and training of an engineer to Inter
fere or te do- tha work of an engineer.
