Washington Speaking In strong Indorsement of the policy of waterway Improvement, President Tatt etlrrcil up much enthusiasm during the opening hours of the sixth convention of the National Hivcrs and Harbors Congress here Wednesday. Hundred of delegates, representing every section of the United States, filled the great banquet hall of the New where they sat under their state Men and women delegate banners. aroe when the nrrivnl of the lrealdcnt .vns announced and gave their Ivsltor a noisy reception, concluding the demonstration with three cheers and a tiger. Upon being presented to the assemblage President Taft spoke at length, dwelling upon his Interest in the policy of waterway improvement, and offered ldvice to the delegates upon methods for attaining the ends they seek. "I congratulate this congress," said Mr. Taft, "on having brought the subject of waterways to such a point that the representatives In Congress from one end of the country to the other recognlra It as a subject that rails for action. They have not come to a definite conclusion as to the policy that ought to be adopted, but they have come to the conclusion that tome policy must be adopted with reference to the development of those Instrumentalities which nature has furnished for the transportation of goods ind for the controlling of railroad rates. "A year ago President Roosevelt and ( were together on a platform before the Conservation of Resources Convention, In which we both advocated the issuing of bonds in order that a project for Improving waterways when begun should be completed in a reasonable time. I am till a consistent advocate of that theory. "But I want, to suggest a word of caution. You are going to encounter in Congress great opposition to the policy of issuing bonds right out of hand. You ire much more likely to get from Congress a declaration of policy in the shape of a declaration that a certain improvement ought to be carried out and spread upon the minutes of Congress in the form of a resolution or a declaration in a itatute. What I advise you to do It to get that declaration. "Then when the time comes that political exigency shall prevent the appropriation of sufficient money from the current revenue to put the proper part of the project through the coming year or the coming two years as economy requires, then the question of issuing bonds will arise. I would get the declaration first, and not have the bonds first, for the reason that you will encounter the objection by Congress that t)ic Issuing of bonds and the receipt of the money will develop a desire to be extravagant."

Considering the rapid growth at the trade of the United State with the Argentine Republic and the cordial relation existing between the two nations, together with the fact that It provides an opportunity to show deference to a sister republic on the occasion of the celebration of Its national Independence, the proper departments of this government are taking steps to apprise the Interests concerned of the opportunity afforded by this exhibition.

With the changed circumstances of the United States and ef the republics to the south of us, most of which have great natural resources, ataoie government and progressive Ideals, the apprehension which gave rise to the Monroe doctrine may be said to have nearly disappeared and neither doctrine as It exist nor any other doctrine of American policy should be permitted to operate for the perpetuation of Irresponsible government, the cape of just obligations or the Insidious allegation of dominating ambitions on the part of the United Btateg.

Mississippi Valley Transportation Co. Power Behind Throne. Money Ready For Improvements. Unless the most careful and most conservative calculations count for naught, the year of 1910 will be ono of the greatest" in the history of Hickman. This optonilstlc view is based upon things In sight upon Industrial a'nd commercial activities which have already received nn Impetus sufficient to warrant a sure consummation. Not least, but probably least mag nified. Is the waterways Improve ments which will be made by the Mississippi Valley Transportation Co, This company has prepared the fol lowing estimate of the cost of Install' Ids terminals and a fleet of barges on the Lower Mississippi Illver, be tween St. Louis and Now Orleans This estimate is based upon tho use only of the first quarter of tho capl tal stock of tho company, amounting to $2,500,000, outN.of tho total of $10 000,000 with which tho company is capitalized. Tho raising of the ad' dlUonal money will continue as rapid ly as possible, und tho company will, as this money la received, extend Its Lervicu Into tho several tributaries und to the upper rivers. The present plans rccognlzo the lm portance of the earliest possible con' uectlon between the port of the Mis' tlsslsstppl, New Orleans, and the metropolis of tho Valley, St. Louis, They are based on a tonnage which is In many instances, assured, and tho remainder of which Is sufficiently certain for tho estimates to be lased on It. Tho aim of this service Is to glvo the greatest possible convenience to all tho cities in tho Valley between St. Louis and Now Orleans, nnd theso estimates aro based only on the minimum convenience at those cities. Theso minimum equipments are required for tho trade which Is already In view, nnd they will servo much more than Uils as tho trade Increases; but It Is tho Intention of the company to enlarge theso facilities as fast as the Uado Olbms. requires and also to Install other terminals at smaller points. Investment for terminals for Im mediate construction: St. Louis and East St Louis, $225, 000. Cairo, $50,000. Cape Girardeau, 110,000. Hickman, 110,0000. Memphis, $100,000. and probably not exceeding Cc ton. In addition to this thero will be Installed cold storage equipment. consisting of a concrete basin eight to ten feet deep for storing bltumtn oua coal under water, and riding over this a traveling bridge carrying a grab bucket which can deposit or collect ccal from any part of thojank, and which can hoist cargo out. of barges lying near tho end of 'the tank or deliver tho fuel in coal cars on an adjacent railroad track.
