In utilizing and conserving the natural resources of the notion, the one consideration more essential than any other is regard for the fu -tunc. Hitherto ns a nation we havo tended to live with nn eye single to the pivsent and have perntirtted the reckless waste nnd destruction of much of our natural wealth. The conservation of our natural resources and their proper use constitute the full problem which underlies every problem of our national life. Unless we maintain an adequate, material basis for our civilization we cannot maintain the institutions in which we take so great pride and to waste and destroy our national .resources means to undermine this material basis. lCven such questions as the regulation of railroad rates and the control of corporations are in reality subsidiary to tho primul problems of the preservation of interests of the whole people of the resources that nature has given us. If we fall to solve the problem no ski 1,1 in solving the others will In the end avail us greatly. "All who have studied tho subject carefully have come to see that the solution of the public lands question lies with the home looker, with the settlor txtoo lives on his land, nnd that government control of the mineral, fuels and the public grating lands is necessary nnd inevitable.

The lietting feature has ruined many good sports. Horse racing, the sport of Kings, has been put to the Isid through excessive hotting.
