PRESIDENT P0INT8 OUT NECE8-
aiTY OF CURTAILING EXPEN-
SES TO LAWMAKERS.
ANNUAL DOCUMENT IS READ
Conoervatlon, 8hlp 8u|>oldy and For-
tification of Panama Canal Lead-
ing Toplco Diocuaoed—Haa
Little to 8ay About Tariff.
Washington, Dec. 6.—Economy in
government affairs Is the keynote of
President Taft's annual message read
before both houses of congress today.
The message approximates 40,000
words and is one of the longest ever
submitted by a president.
Conservation of the public domain,
ship subsidy, fortification of the Pana-
ma canal and the continuation of the
present tariff board are the leading
subjects touched upon. He also re-
views the work of the various gov-
ernment departments and concurs in
recommendation, tending toward the
bettering of the service, made by sev-
eral of the members of his cabinet.
Economy Is Urged.
In dwelling on the urgent need for
economy government expenditures, the
president aya: "Every effort has been
made by each department chief to reduce
the eatlmated cost of his department for
the ensuing fiscal year ending June 30,
1111 I say this In order that congress
may understand that these estimates thus
made present the smallest sum which will
maintain the departments, bureaus and
offices of the government and meet Its
other obligations under existing law, and
that a cut of these estimates would re-
sult In embarrassing the executive branch
ef the government In the performance of
Its duties. This remark does not apply
to the river and harbor estimates, except
to those for expenses of maintenance and
the meeting of obligations under author-
ised contracts, nor does It apply to the
public building bill nor to the navy build-
ing program. Of course, as to these con-
gress could withhold any part or all of
the estimates for them without Interfer-
ing with the discharge of the ordinary ob-
ligations of these functions of Its depart-
ments, bureaus and offices.
"Against the estimates of expenditures
1640,494,013.12, we have estimated receipts
for next year 1680,000,000, making a proba-
ble surplus of ordinary receipts over or-
dinary expenditures of about $50,000,000, or
taking into account the estimates for the
Panama canal, which are 156,920,847.69, and
which will ultimately be paid In bonds.
It will leave a deficit for the next year of
about $7,000,000, If congress shall conclude
to fortify the canal."
Wants Forest Limitation Removed.
On the subject of conservation he de-
Totes considerable space to forest, coal,
eli and gaa. phosphate lands and water
power sites. As to the reservation of
forest lands he says: "The lsw now pro-
hibits the reservation of any more forest
lands In Oregon. Washington. Idaho,
Montana, Colorado and Wyoming, except
by act of congress. I am Informed by the
department of agriculture that the gov-
ernment owns other tracts of timber land
In these states which should be Included
In the forest reserves. I recommend to
eongress that the limitation herein Im-
posed be repealed.
"Congress ought to trust the executive
te use the power of reservation only with
respect to land most valuable for forest
purposes. During the present administra-
tion, 62,250.000 acres of land largely non-
timbered have been excluded from forest
reserves, and S.600,000 acres of land prin-
cipally valuable for forest purposes have
been Included In forest reserves, making
a reduction In forest reserves of non-
timbered land amounting to 2,750.000
Wanta Canal Fortified.
Regarding the Panama canal, the' presi-
dent asserts thst unless unexDerted ob-
stscles arise the waterway will he com-
pleted well within time limit of Janu-
ary 1, 1915. and within estimate of cost,
1875,000,000. Suggestions for levying of
tolls and management are made, snd re-
garding fortification of the canal, he
"Among Questions arising for present
eolutlon Is the decision whether the canal
ahatl be fortified. I have already stated
to the congress that I strongly favor for-
tification and I now reiterate this opin-
ion and ask your consideration of the
subject In the light of the report already
before you made by a competent board.
"Failure to fortify the canal would
leave the attainment of both these alms
In the position of rights and obligations
which we should be powerless to enforce
and which could never In any way be ab-
solutely safeguarded against a desperate
and Irresponsible enemy."
The president urgea such sctlon as he
believes will Increase American trade
abroad, and says::
"Another Instrumentality Indispensable
to the unhampered and natural develop-
ment of American commerce Is merchant
marine. All maritime nnd commercial nn
tlons recognize the Importance of this
factor The greatest commercial nations,
our competitors, jealously foster their
merchant marine. Perhaps nowhere Is
Mie need for rapid and direct mall, pas-
senger and freight communication quite
so urgent as between the United States
and Latin America. We can secure In no
ether quarter of the world such Imme-
diate benefits In friendship and com-
merce as would flow from the establish-
ment of direct lines of communication
with the countries of Latin America ade-
quate to meet the requirements of a rap-
idly Increasing appreciation of the reci-
procal dependence of the countries of the
western hemisphere upon each other's
products, sympathies and assistance.
"I alluded to tills moat Important sub-
ject In my last annual message; It hss

capitulate the reasons for Its recommen-
dation. Unl as prompt action be taken

Critlolam of the Tariff.
In the space devoted to the tariff the
"The schedules of the rates of duty in
the Payne tariff act have been subjected
to a great deal of criticism, some of It
■at, more of It unfounded, and too much
■^representation. Ths act was adopted
In pursuancs of a declaration by the par-
ty which Is responsible for It that cus-
toms bill should be a tariff for the pro-
tectlon of home Industries, the measure
of the protection to be the difference be-
tween the cost of producing the Imported
article abroad and the coat of producing
It at home, together with such addition to
that difference as might-give a reasonable
Profit to the home producer. The basis
for the criticism of this tariff is that in
respect to a number of the schedules the
declared measure was not followed, but a
higher difference retained or Inserted by
way of undue discrimination In favor of
certain Industries and manufactures. Lit-
tle, if any, of the criticism of the tariff
has been directed against the protective
principle above stated; but the main body
of the criticism has been based on the at-
tempt to conform to the measure of pro-
tection was not honestly and sincerely
The president also refers to the appoint-
ment of a board of experts to Investigate
the cost of production of various articles
Included In the schedules of the tariff,
"Whether or not the protective policy Is
to be continued, and the degree of protec-
tion to be accorded to our homo indus-
tries, are questions which the people must
decide through their chosen representa-
tives. But whatever policy Is adopted. It
Is clear that the necessary legislation
should be based on an Impartial, thor-
ough and continuous study of the facts."
Recommends Parcels Post.
The adoption of the parcels post I*
again adopted. On this subject President
Taft says: "With respect to the parcels
post. I respectfully recommend Its adop-
tion on all rural delivery routes, and that
11 pounds—ths International limit—bs
made the limit of carriage in such post.
The same argument Is made against ths
parcels post that was made against ths
postal savings bank—that it is Introduc-
ing the government Into a business which
should be conducted by private persons
and Is paternalism. The poBtofflce depart-
ment has a great plant and a great or-
ganization. reaching Into the most remota
hamlot of the United States, and with
this machinery it Is able to do a great
many things economically that If a new
organization were necessary It would be
impossible to do without extravagant ex-
Department of Justice.
Discussing the.affairs of the department
of Justice, the president says:
"I Invite especial attention to the prose-
cutions .under the federal law of the so-
called 'bucket shops,' and of those
schemes to defraud In which ths use of
the mall Is an essential part of the
fraudulent conspiracy, prosecutions which
have saved Ignorant and weak members
of the public and are saving them hun-
dreds of millions of dollars. Ths viola-
tions of the anti-trust law present per-
haps the most Important litigation before
the department, and the number of casss
died shows the activity of the govern-
ment In enforcing that statute.
"In a special message last year I
brought to the attention of congress ths
propriety and wisdom of enacting a gen-
eral Inw providing for the incorporation
of Industrial and other companies engaged
In Interstate commerce, and I rensw my
recommendation In that behalf."
The crying need In the United States
of cheapening the cost of litigation by
simplifying judicial procedure and ex-
pediting final judgment Is pointed out and
action looking to correction of these evils
The president recommends an Increase
In the salaries of federal Judges.
In regard to postal matters ths presi-
dent points with pride to Its present effi-
cient management and the recent reduc-
tion In the deficit. The present unre-
stricted franking privilege comes In for
comment with a suggestion for the adop-
tion of better methods for Its regulation.
Abolish Navy Yards.
The president calls attention to certain
reforms urged by the secretary of ths
navy which lie recommends for adoption,
"The secretary of the navy has given
personal examination to every navy yard,
and hna studied the uses of the navy
yards with reference to the necessities
of our fleet. With a fleet considerably
less than half the size of that of ths
British navy, we have shipyards more
than double the number, and there are
several of these shipyards expensively
equipped with modern mchlnery, which,
after Investigation the secretary of the
navy believes to be entirely useless for
naval purposes. ITe asks authority to
ahandon certain of them and to move
their machinery to other places, where It
can be made of use."
Speaking of our foreign relations the
president says: "During the past year
the foreign relations of the United States
have continued upon a basts of friendship
snd good understanding.
"TI 10 year has been notable as witness-
ing the pacific settlement of two Impor-
tant International controversies before the
permanent court of The Hague.
"The arbitration of the fisheries dispute
between the United States and Great
Britain, which has been ths source of
nearly continuous diplomatic correspond-
ence since the fisheries convention of 1818.
ha* given an award which Is satisfactory
to both parties. Tills arbitration Is par-
ticularly noteworthy not only because of
the eminently just results secured, but
also because It Is tl;e first arbitration held
under the general arbitration treaty of
April 4, 190S. Ix-iween the United States
and Rreat Britain, and disposes of a con-
troversy the seitlement of which has re-
sisted every other resource of diplomacy
and which for nearly ninety yeara has
been the cause of friction between two
countries whose common Interest lies In
maintaining the most friendly and cordial
relations will) racli other.
President Taft makes a few recommen-
dations for changes In the Interstate com-
merce law and says:
"Except as above. I <j0 not recommend
any amendment lo the Interstate com-
merce law as It stands, I do not now
recommend any amendment to ths anti-
trust law. In other words, It seems to
me that the existing legislation with
reference to the regulation of corpora-
tions and the restraint of their business
lias reached a point where we can stop
for a while and witness the effect of the
vigorous execution of the laws of the
statute books In restraining the abuses
which certainly .lid exist and which
roused tlia public to demand reform."

Two Branches of Legislature
Deadlocked Over Capitol
HOUSE DEFENDS DILL
Lower Body Issues Statement In An-
swer to That of Senate
Oklahoma City.—The house capltol
location committee issued a statement
Friday afternoon to the people of
Oklahoma in reply to the "ultimatum"
of the senate committee that no satis-
factory proposition proposing a free
capitol had been made by the citizens
of Oklahoma City and that unless one
was submitted forthwith the sixteen
senators who signed the communica-
tion would report In favor of an imme-
diate adjournment of the legislature.
The house committee declares em-
phatically that the delay in locating
the capitol is not due either to the
house committee or the house itself.
The statement signed by Speaker W.
B. Anthony and by ten of the fifteen
members of the committee, states that
the Wright-Peery-Durant bill is in ac-
cord with the will of the people and
that the only opposition to it among
the people of the state Is the opposi-
tion of "conflicting real estate inter-
ests In Oklahoma City."
According to the house committee,
thirty-three of the leading citizens of
Oklahoma City who favor a different
site than Putnam City for locating the
capitol, expressed themselves entirely
satisfied with the opportunity of pre-
senting propositions afforded by the
provisions of the capitol bill. "The
house committee is not wedded to the
Putnam site and the provisions of
House Bill NTo. 1 make it possible to
accept any other better proposition"

Members of the house committee
appeared to be Incensed at the "ulti-
matum" issued by the senate commit-
tee. They had no hesitancy in declar-
ing that the "ultimatum" of the sen-
ators appears to have been Issued In
an effort to reflect on the house or the
house committee. At a meeting of the
house committee Friday afternoon fol-
lowing the adjournment of the house,
several members paid their respects
to the sixteen senators for issuing the

leading citizens of Oklahoma City who
fyvor a different location than the
Putnam site location, apeared before
this committee and expressed them-
selves as being entirely satisfied with
the opportunity of presenting differ-
ent propositions afforded by the pro-
visions of this bill. We believe that
house bill No. 1 is In thorough accord
with the expressed will of the people
of the State of Oklahoma, and that the
only opposition to it among the people
of the state is the opposition of con-
flicting real estate Interests in Okla-

houso of representatives the adoption
of House Bill No. 1, which is substan-

Would Aid Tariff Revision
Washington.—Senator Cummins of
Iowa introduced a resolution In the
senate Wednesday designed to help
the revision of certain schedules of
the tariff law. The rule permits the
taking up of a single achedule for re-
vision without rendering the balance
of the law open to amendment.
Senator Cummins also will Intro-
duce a resolution limiting to sl£ty days
the time a bill may be he'd in a com-
mittee of the senate. After that time

SENATE NOT SATISFIED
Sixteen Senators Itaua Ultimatum to
Oklahoma City—Friday the 8enate
Committee Made the Following
To the People of the State of Okla-
It Is the sense of the senate capital
location committee that no bill will
be reported for passage until such
time as we have a proposition sub-
mitted proposing a free, satisfactory
capltol site, together with a satisfac-
tory guarantee that the state will re-
ceive a free capltol building.
After ten days' deliberation, during
which time this committee has given
an average of five hours a day to com-
mittees from Oklahoma City, we are
still without any satisfactory proposi-
tion proposing a guaranteed free cap-
itol building, and unless such guaran-
teed proposition Is submitted forth-
with we will report in favor of an Im-
This is the ultimatum Issued and
signed by every member of the sen-
ate committee on capital location
Thursday night after two hours' delib-
eration, in which every phase of the
question of locating the capital in
Oklahoma City had been discussed.
In the light of recent events, this
action of the committee came as a
complete surprise, literally sweeping
other members of Che senate and
house off their feet. The capital loca-
tion question is still further compli-
cated, but the flickering flame of hope
did not die in the breasts of the sup-
porters of the original capital loca-
tion program with the issuance of the
Whether or not the senate will up-
hold the action of the special cap-
ital committee should it recommend
immediate adjournment is a matter
that only a vote of the members of
that body can determine. Should a
motion to adjourn sine die pass the
senate, it would be necessary for it
to receive the concurrence of the
lower house in order to become effec
tire. From the attitude the house has
assumed up to the present time, there
Is a serious question as to whether
that organization would Indorse such
a movement on the part of the upper
body. The governor could immediate-
ly call another special session, should
the legislature adjourn.
A committee of business men, com-
prising twenty representative citizens,
conferred with the senate committee
Thursday, and it Is understood that
they are thoroughly in accord with the
idea of locating the capital In Okla-
homa City and are willing to do any-
thing within reason to secure the seat
The senate capital committee has
had there sites submitted to them,
whereby a free capitol could be se-
cured. One is the Putnam site, which
they refused to consider; the second
involves the proposed sale of school
land, section No. 16, and the other is
the Lincoln boulevard northeast prop-
osition. None of these has met with
the approval of the committee.
Friday noon two more propositions
were submitted. One involves the
Parker Howe tract, northeast of the
city, of which Senator Tom McMechan
is the principal owner, and which Sen-
ator McMechan has been preparing to
offer for the last ten days, The site
Is some distance from the city limits
and would consist of about 600 acres.
The other proposition which it is
expected will be submitted involves
the school land section southwest of
the city In Capltol Hill. This site does
not meet with favor as it would neces-
sitate the sale of the land belonging
to the state.
Packing Plant to Muskogee
Muskogee, Okla.—The Muskogee
Packing company was Incorporated
here Thursday with a capital stock of
1200,000, for the purpose of establish-
ing a packing plant and cold storage
at Falls City, a North Muskogee sub-
urb. George Schneider is president,
O. D. Sleeper, vice president and N.
F. Hancock, secretary. The plant will
employ sixty men when it starts op-
erating the first of May.
Boom for Clark is Launched
Washington.—The first state dele-
gation boom for Champ Clark of Mis-
souri, the present minority leader,
for the speakership of the next house
was launched Friday when the Ken-
tucky democrats formally Indorsed
him for the office. Friends of Mr.
Clark say his election is now sssured.
They say that Mr. Clark already has
reoelved positive pledges from 175
democratic representatives, and
pledges, more or less equivocal, from
25 others, and that of the remaining
democrats in the total of 227 in the
next democratic congress, virtually all
of them are expected to rally to Clark.
Fort 8111 to Be College Post
Fort Sill, Okla.—A lield artillery
school will be established at Fort Sill,
to train officers nnd enlisted men in
the handling of troops and directing
Are. It is expected the school will
be in operation next summer. Capt.
Dan T. Moore, Sixth Field artillery,
who has been on temporary duty at
the war department, has been de-
tached from his regiment at Fort
Riley, and ordered to Fort Sill. A new
post, with officers' headquqarters, and
barracks will be ready at Fort Hill in
a few weeks.
