Addressing a mass meeting, he said; “You have your own destiny to carve out. I deeply sympathize Avith your feeling with reference to the injustice that arises from race prejudice and race feeling of thoughtless and wicked men. I know hoAv it cuts to the quick. But, on the other hand, 3^on know in your hearts that there are in the south many noble Avhite men who believe that the uplifting of the south is largely in the uplifting of the negro, and he is the chief instrument him­ self to bring that about. ^ “When yon make yciirselves indis­ pensable to a community from a ma­ terial standpoint there is likely to he a modification of unjust prejudice. The idea that the south can afford to have the negroes transplanted to some other country to me alAvays sounded like a joke. They tried that in Missis­ sippi. They were only going to move the negro laborers not out of the coun­ try to Africa, hut across the river. They had a riot when it was tried. So of course that i^ absurd. “But if the negro would be respected he must make him skf Avorthy of re­ spect.

As sqoTi as the subpoenas had been served the World got an order to show cause, returnable before Judge Ward, The contention was in effect that the governirieiit’s inquiry w^as a mere “fish­ ing excursion.”^ Mr. BbAvers asserted that the subpoe­ nas AA^eve . irregular in form because they called upon the witnesses'to testi­ fy “to ail, and everything which you may know generally on the part of the United' States.”, He- argued that snb- pi^nas .worded in this way were with­ out force and in violation of principles enunciatled by the United States su­ preme Gjourt and the court of appeals of this state. Mr. Stimson was accused of- having “started! out on a voyage of discovery of a kind' which the law does not Loler- ate.’f The district attorney said' that the subpoenas followed the form ,recog- nized in this d istric t ' f or upAvard of fifty years and longer; in other districts the country:'• < \ / GiFFoim uses of forest-resources amounted to', $1,842,281.87, an increase ^of $271,•• '222.43 over 1907, representing profita­ ble use of the forests by some 30,000 individuals or concerns, in addition to more than 30,000 getting free use of timber aud other resources.
