Protection for the people was the topic of President Roosevelt's speeches at the Jamestown Exposition last week. Taxation and reclamation he regarded as important questions to be considered in the near future. Speaking of these he said: "One of two great movements in our public life is the question of, in certain ways, reshaping our system of taxation so as to make it bear most heavily on those most capable of sustaining the strain. The other is the question of utilizing the natural resources of the nation in the way that will be of most benefit to the nation as a whole. The conservation of our natural resources and their proper use constitute the fundamental problem which underlies almost every other problem of our national life."

Visitors at the Charlestown (Mass) Navy Yard nearly all walk the length of the reservation to get an opportunity to see the Constitution, which is being restored to her old-time fighting appearance, and now have a fine chance to view the guns which will constitute the frigate's armament. There are fifty-four of these guns, and they follow as closely as possible the style used on the ship at the time of her world-famous battle with the Guerriere. They were cast at the foundry at the local yard from models made after plans taken from old prints and drawings of the ship's armament.
