DISTRICT BOARD MEETS HERE THURSDAY Erroneous Report Concerning Re gradinq of Tobacco is Corrected The District Board of the Burley Tobacco Society convened here Thursday afternoon and will continue in session until the last of the week The members of the Board allsay that as far as is known now the only important matter aside from the rou tine work that will come before the meeting will be the fix thebpledge and making other preliminary arrangements for conducting the pool for the present year The Executive Committee adjourned at noon and most of the members remained here and will attend the meeting of the District Board A report has gained circulation through some of the daily papers that all of the 19067 crops that was recently sold to the American Tobacco Company and the independent buyers would havgto b regraded on account of lit rcoming up to grade and price but this is not correct the members of the hoard say The 1906 crop was sold at graded prices ran n g from 18 to 28 cents and in a few cases it was found that it did not come up to type and condition as itI was graded and in each instance liar been sent bank and regardedand the price adjusted to suit the purchaser The 1907 crop was sold at 17 cents per pound straight and was only guaranteed as to condition and there is no reason for any of that being rejected on account of not com ing up to type The only objection that could be found to1 it would be with the condition and so far there has been very little or any objections to it and it is not probable there will be now as practically all of it has been disposed

FoIIoManFoull Short of Amount Purchased The above startling headlines ap pear in the Cincinnati Enquirer to Enquirer says IctSensati nal revelations in the affairs of the Burley Tobacco Society 6r tobacco ulanters combine were disclosed yesterday after investiga tions by Government officials which have been going on in this city for the last few days The officials referred to are Major Hancock and Mr Goebel of Washington D C special agents of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue andso far as their investigations have gone extensive errors bearing every evidence of fraud in the mat- tel of net weights of hogsheads of tobacco sold by the Burley Society or its agents to independent manufac turers have been revealed The matter of the shortages in weights and the astounding revela tions of the Government officials was the sole topic of conversation in loc al tobacco circles yesterday sand the prediction was freely made that the Revenue Department at Washington will send on additional officials in the next 48 hours and these will place every Burley Society warehouse or storage barn in the entire burley dis trict under lockand seal until a com plete and sweeping investigation is madeThe grievance of the independent manufacturers however and the one which has brought the present sensation l investigation of the Govern ment is over the matter of tares or the correct weight of the hogs heads in which their purchases were packed At very few points where the Burley Society pooled tobaccos were held and are still held in stor age awaiting deliveries has the so ciety been equipoed with the neces sary apparatus and fixtures for sampling grading or weighing and some extensive borrowing of such apparatus was tried here and at Louisville by the Burley people during the tobacco war but with very little success as none of the warehouses in either city had any of the apparatus to spare The most charitable construction that can be placedon the Burley So cietys weighing and sampling 13 examples of which from Franklin Woodford and Harrison counties Kentucky are given below is that instead of following the usual custom of the trade in securing actual gross tare and net weights the Burley Society people took the gross weight only knocked out one or two staves of the hogshead to get the sample instead of extracting it from three different sections of the pack age as required under sections of the package as required under the in spection rules of the trade replaced the staves and then made a guess at the tare with a very liberal and generoifs allowance for error in their own behalf Actual tares of tobacco hogsheads vary from about 140 to 200 pounds this variation being djie to the fact that some of the hogsheads are made of poplar and others of oak or other hard woods Recently a very prominent local and independent manufacturer got wise to the fact there was serious descrepancies in the Burley Societys and his own net weights of his por tion of the tobacco sold by the Bur ley Society to the independents The firm took 13 hogsheads of its pur chase out of the B 0 storage warehouse in this city and in the presence of disinterestedwitnesses done a

their enemies but the spiny tfoxfish has about the cleverest way of all He belongs to the great family called puffer and you win see in a moment how well the name fits him Just imagine the little puffer swim ming around In the rater looking like a small round box with a head on A big fish comes along sees the little puffer and thinks Theres just a good mouthful for me But just as he darts toward him the little puffer blows himself up like a ball turns over on his back and floats around with all his sharp prickers sticking out toward his enemy The Igb Is dazed he stares at the puffer amT thinks Can that great prickly thing be the same little fish I tried to swallow He cant un derstand it but he sees there is no use trying so he goes sadly on his way arid when the little puffer is sure he is gone he just empties the water out oft his skin and goes back to his usual size Now isnt that a pretty clever trick for a little fish to play But you see Mother Nature gave the little puffer just that kind of a body that he might escape from his enemies St Nicho las i A SCOTCH RING One of the Royal Jewels It Had a Melancholy History The traditional history of the Scotch regalia ring is of the most tragic nOt to say melancholy character IMs believed that it was the favorite ring of Mary Stuart and that after her ju dicial murder in Fotheringny castle it was transmitted to her son From James it descended to Charles I at whose coronation at Scone in 1633 it played a distinct part Once more did this ill fated ring figure at an untimely and ill merited death for with almost his last breath upon the scaffold at Whitehall Charles bequeathed it to Bishop Juxou in trust for his son In due course of time the ring came into the possession of James IL and was carried away with him on his flight to the continent When however he was detained by the fishermen at Sheerness the ring which had been secreted in the kings underclothing only escaped robbery by the luckiest of mistakes on the part of the sailor who searched him Thus the ring was passed on uninjured to James de scendants till by bequest of Cardinal York it became the property of the reigning dynasty once more and was by them replaced among the royal jewels of Scotland from which it had been separated for many a long year St James Gazette A Penalty of Genius It seems to be the frequent penalty of

J Collier of Colliers Weekly acting thorugh motives of simple patriotism He conceived the idea of developing the farm into a Lincoln National Park which should stand forever as a fitting memorial to Lincolns high ser viceamemorial worthy of the man and worthy of the American people Acting on the suggestion of the President members of the cabinet Congressmen Governors of States and men prominent in every walk of life an association was formed the purpose of whichshould be to se stare the necessary funds to d e elo the park erect Memorial Building shelter the cabin and to provide for their future care as a priceless heritage of the American people To this association Mr Collier prevent edthed farm and later the old cabin which he also rescued from a spec 7 iflator who had the logs stored in a celiar holding them for ransom The association has not been sub sidized by men of large means The endeavorhas been to make ita n iioiial movement They invited sub scriptions from 25 cents

question is usually of only local significance and may be solved by those interested if they will but ob serve the most pressing needs of the community As a rule nothing will so effectually and so cheaply improve a section as the cleaning of streets parkways and vacant lots This accomplished an air of general thrift and cleanliness is t once noticeable by all whether residents or visitors Individ uals will catch the fever and a general cleanup of private premises will still further improve the scene says the Los Angeles Times Some funds will be needed for the public work and these may be obtained starting an improvement association with a low membership fee and the organization need not live beyond the cleanup pe riodWhether the association Is to be made permanent should be gauged by the interest and enthusiasm manifest by the general public If only a few are interested the fight for permanence will prove a hard one but if enthusi asm dominates the whole people do not rest with a simple cleanup which Is only a negative move but engage in some permanent improvement looking to the beautifying and bettering of the whole field under consideration Doubtless the easiest task and the one most productive of lasting results in proportion to the cost is the planting of street trees If money is only on hand for a single block of planting do not be discouraged but make this block com plete and orderly and it will then not prove so hard to add thereunto At this stage of the game some enthusiastic energetic workers will be needed to fan the feeble spark into an active flame If you can get one street plant ed you can eventually and in the neat future secure the adornment of all Any community with well planted streets is well on the highway toward the goal of the city beautiful and less difficulty will be experienced with everysaccessive step SCHOOL GROUND BETTERMENT What Can Be Done to Make Common Property Atti ctive While we are imbued with the gar dening fever let us look to the district school yard and note if It has all we could wish for in the way of plant life If not what can you do to make it more interesting instructive or attractive Of course there are school yards where there is not sufficient space for flowers others where the school board has covered the garden space with temporary buildings and still others where they have built so ugly and unsightly or insufficiently as to disgust the neighborhood residents who will do nothing until the wrong Is righted As a rule however school yards in general are capable of pleasing effects by the judicious planting of tree shrub and vine Wnere such is the case It is well to bear In mind that It is the one piece of neighborhood property in which all are interested all have a common ownership and that upon all its condition reflects credit or criticism What is the condition of your school yard Can you individual tly or with your neighbors collectively do anything to improve it If so act that it may be a credit and a comfort to you and yours The iiiyrians The Illyrian province formed a shortJived government being insti tuted by Napoleon in 1809 from vari ous territories taken from

Centenary1909 The Debates WithDouglas HoW Douglas Won the Sen y atorship but Lost the Presi dency to Lincoln House Divided Against Itself ff 0 t I WI HEN John J Ingalls w oteI his famous ode to tunityor did he lift from an Italianhe could have proved his main contention from the life of Abraham Lincoln The one point in which the Ingalls theory does not coincide with the Lincoln practice Is that opportunity knocked many times on the war presidents door and was welcomed each time In life if not In poetry that Is her manner of treat llugus alL She visits us oftenonly I not she likes to come best where 1welcome I can imagine her ceasing her visits altogether to the man who never greets or even recognizes her when she appears Yet while It Is true that opportunity t knocks often it is also true that there Is one opportunity greater than all the rest one on which the whole life hinges This so overshadows the lesser chances that Mr or was sayingithat the opportunity which makes or mars a career comes but once With Lincoln this was the Douglas debate All his life had been a prep aration for that struggle Unquestionably it gave him the presidency of the- United States It was the key event to his future career It not only brought him the Republican nomina tion but made Douglas election as the Democratic candidate impossible I know of nothing in all American biography more illuminative to the young man seeking a political career than the LincolnDouglas debate Before the contest Douglas was known throughout the land as one of the most effective debaters in the sen ate and one of the foremost orators and statesmen in America Lincoln was scarcely known outside of Illinois At the end the whole country realized that the Little Giant had met his match and more than tics match Even ICbto the senate all the moral effects of Little Giant met than victory were with the tall gaunt un known lawyer who was his opponent This however was but a small part of the effect of the debate Out of the contest three things stand with great clearness The first and greatest is the fact that Douglas was the one who indulged in personalities and trivialities Lincoln held to principles Douglas was shifty Lincoln logical honest and straight forward Douglas even went to the length of misquoting public documents In the effort to worst his opponent one glaring instance calling down on him the criticism of press and public Lincoln was fair through out All Douglas fame brilliancy charm and versatility could not over some the sledge hammer reasoning 0 plain dealing and transparent candor of his opponent In these debates Lin coln did not resort to jokes He was serious On the other hand he never lost his temper which could not be imPresiif great oratorical battle was that of a high American Beside this homespun backwoodsman Douglas with all his culture persuasiveness andelegance suffered In comparison The frontiersman was k 0 his superior not only in honesty and reasoning power but even la L r By James A Edgerton Copyright 1909 by the American Press Association Q The second great thing that shone out of the contest did not occur during the debate but earlier It was the fa mous house divided against itself ut terance of Lincoln made at the very opening of the struggle Against the use of this sentence his friends pro tested telling him that it would lose him the senatorship As so many times afterward Lincoln proved that on questions of conscience and prin ciple he decided for himself The statement while bold and radical was not only right but in the highest sense was politic Doubtless it did help to lose Lincoln the senatorship If so it helped to gain him the presidency It stirred the nation focused the atten tion of the north upon him and blank eted Seward Abraham Lincoln was a politician and a consummate politician at that But he worked not with machines or tricks but with principles He had a long look ahead He was ambitious but in a large way He played for the biggest stake The third notable thing In the fa mous debate was the question propounded by Lincoln at Freeport Again his friends protested that it would lose him the senatorship Again Mr Lincoln overruled their objections and used his own head and his own con scienceThe question was Can the people of a United States territory in any lawful way against the wish of any citizen of the United States exclude slavery from its limits prior to the formation of a state constitution- Mr Lincoln reasoned within himself that Judge Douglas famous popular waylinsouth By bringing the Little Giant to cases he would dispel the mist get rid of the vagueness and show the people of all sections exactly where Douglas stood If that gentleman answered no to the question his Illinois had his matchIThe and more his match LincolnDouglas eminently minded gentleman gentility constituents would quit him If yes the south would repudiate him The upshot proved Lincoln right Douglas answer was artful but In effect was in the affirmative And just as Lincolns friends had feared it was received with loud acclaim throughout Illinois It clinched Douglas victory for the senate But the storm of pro test from the south grew until this very Freeport question and Judge Douglas answer thereto led to the split In tho Democratic national convention caused the placing of another ticket in the field and made impossible Douglas election to the presidency- In 1858 when Lincolns friends ex postulated with him over throwing away the senatorship in this fashion he retorted I am after larger game The battle of 1860 is worth a hundred of this After the election of 18GO Lincoln asked Joseph 3Iedill if he remembered the argument the two had had over the Freeport question On receiving an affirmative answer he continued Dont you think I was right now We were both tight answered the feteran journalist The question hurt Douglas for the presidency but It lost rou the senatorship Yes said Lincoln and I have iron the place he was playing for Bight here gentle readerall read ers are gentle you know there is dun ger that you will jumpat a conclusion You will do this at least if you are a victim of the obvious You will decide that Abraham Lincoln himself was consciously playing for the presidency If so I think you will fail to measure the manand will do him great wrong There is no evidence that he had such an end in view That he had dreamed of the presidency doubtless is true What ambitious man in politics or out of it for that matter has not Yet when he was urged for the nomi nation a year or more later he at first held back believing that he could not get the nomination and was not fitted for the place even if he could get it No I interpret the Freeport incident differently Lincoln had little or no thought of himself in the mutter Ht knew that Douglas would be the Democratic candidate for the presidency He wanted to make Douglas election impossible This he desired to do re gardless of whether or not he himself was to be the candidate and vLctaor or not he would personally profit by the defeat Of the Little Giant He did it for the sake of the party for the sake of the principle of the nonexten sion of slavery To accomplish so great a good he was even willing to throwaway his own election to the senatorship This interpretation is borne out by Lincolns unselfishness shown at other times At least that is the way I read the soul of the man Of the Freeport incident this must have been true in the very nature of the case There was then not one chance in twenty that Lincoln would be nominated for the presidency If be were defeated for the senatorship In all moral probability there was not one chance in a hundred of such a consummation Thus in throwing away the senatorship in order that he might defeat Douglas for the presidency the motive could not have been selfishAbraham Lincoln often said he made no move In politics for the purpose of advancing his own personal fortunes Almost every incident in hIs carper bears out the statement The real truth of the Freeport matter then resolves itself into this In 1858 Abraham Lincoln renounced his chances of being chosen to the United States senate in order that a Republican president might be elected in 18GO A few years earlier he had renounced his chances of election to the same office in order that Lyman Trumbull might be elected Still a few years earlier he had cast aside his popularity as a congressman that he might get at the truth as to the origin of the Mexican war His career is replete with sImilar examples How Is such a series of facts to be harmonized with the statement that he was a consummate politician Sim ply thus Lincoln WaS not a7litfclTn for self He used political methods for advancing certain ideas If he personally could advance along with these Ideas he was pleased to do so If he saw a chance to advance the ideas without himself advancing he did that If he found opportunity to further the ideas at the expense of his own career he also did that This is the secret of the public life of Lincoln Study it from the beginning to the end and you will find him consistent to this policy at every point No wonder the politicians could not measure him no wonder the com mon people trusted him Thoir in stinct found him where the wisdom of the great men failed In this vital respect he was of a different order from any public man we have had since Washington By public man I mean men in political life of course and not teachers and reformers I know of no other prominent official in our history of whom I would care to say that he would advance principle at the expense of self and would never advance self unless he could also ad vaace principle Herein was the essential difference between Lincoln and Douglas With the Little Giant the advancement of self seemed the first consideration that of principle second aryTherefore the triumph of Abraham Lincoln over Stephen A Douglas forms one of the most inspiring events in our national history May Its profound lesson be learned by every man who aspires to a political careert Lincoln and His Cabinet President Lincolns patient forbear ance with Salmon P Chase was one of the glories of his administration Chase while in the cabinet made un complimentary remarks about his chief many of which reached Lin colns ears and besides was a rival candidate for the presidency In spite of all this Lincoln would not ask him to resign and finally made him chief justice of the supreme court When remonstrated with for letting Chase remain a candidate the meekest of our presidents told this story stepbrotherI driving the horse and he holding the pow The horse was lazy but on one occasion rushed across the field so that Iwith my long legs could scarcely keep pace with him On reaching the end I uponhimtoldhImthat way Why said my brother that s all that made him go Now said Mr Lincoln if Chase has a presidential chin fly biting him I am not going to knock it off If It will only make his department go Of course every one has heard of Lincolns declaration to a delegation that wanted some impossible thing from the war department that he had very little influence with this admin istration Then there was his softanswpr to a delegation that came declaring the hot tempered warsecretary had called him a dd fool Well if Stantop raid I am a dd fool I must bet for he Is nearly always right HOME TRADE KNOCKER Argument Against Adoption of a Parcels Post System DEATHBLOW TO SMALLTOWN Would Practically Wipe Out Jobbing Trade Vast Amount of Business Now Done In Country Districts Would Be Transferred to Cities We live in an era of progress We are moving forward so rapidly thatI there is danger that some proposed so called modern improvements may be accepted as beneficial which in their actual working out when practically tried would prove to be evils in the guise of benefits An illustration of this is the proposition to turn the post office department into a carrier of all kinds of miscellaneous merchandise by the adoption of a parcels post system From a national point of view one of the most serious dangers from this system is the inevitable effect that it would have to throw into mail order channels and transfer to the great cities of the country says Maxwells Talisman a vast volume of trade now done in the small cities country towns and villages That this would be an evil no one with a mind capable of thought can deny Stupendous changes in the meth od of transacting the business of dis tributrT merchandise to the consum ers trrvild result and the result of every change would be to transfer trade and population to the great cit ies It would practically wipe out the job Ij trade and the country mer chant would Inevitably become as the postmaster general says in effect he has become In Germany a sales agent without any stock in trade offering specific goods as they are sold just as a manufacturers agent does in this country requiring no more of the ma chinery of trade than is necessary to transmit his orders to the central fac tory or warehouse Retail merchants now engaged in trade in thousands of the smaller trade centers in all parts of the country would be forced out of business their stores would be closed and some great mail order concern inn big city would do the business The peopleemployed to transact it would necessarily live in the cities where the trade was done In every European country where the parcels post system exists it has had this effect The cities of those countries in Europe have grown in population and trade with stupendous strides at the expense of the country since the parcels post sys tem has been in vogue That system has undoubtedly been one of the great promoting influences toward this cen tralization of trade and population in lliecIticL To break the effect of this funda mental objection to the parcels post the proponents of that scheme urge that it will stimulate the settlement of the rural regions because it will increase the convenience of rural life So it would stimulate rural settlement if the government would furnish everyone who would move into the country with a donation of money and a free hugetreasuryed by the parcels post system if luau gurated were applied directly to such donations and gifts from the govern ment it would undoubtedly result in creating many new country homes but the reaction from such a scheme would far overbalance the benefits from it The fact is incontrovertible that the goods wares ainl merchandise household goods garden tools dry goods arid clothin groceries and all food products not produced on the farm must be purchased from some source by the dwellers in the country Where are these roods to come from and where are the people who conduct the trade of supplying them to live If the countless millions of dollars expended by the dwellers in the country for such things in the course of a year are sent to the great cities and the goods ordered there from huge mail order concerns to be delivered by par cels post then the fact cannot be gain said that the people who transact that immense volume of annual business will be concentrated in the cities The large population now transacting tie business In the small cities the coun try towns and the country villages will be transferred to the cities The even tual working out of such a system would result in the end in dividing our population Into two classes those liv ing In the great cities and those living on farms whether they be large or mall in the country The intermediate population which now furnishes the social center for the farmers life in the nearby town or village or in a small city where practically every so cial advantage ca be had that exists in the larger cities would struggle for existence against a constantly increas ing industrial force that would tend like a mighty maelstrom to sweep into the large cities year by year a greater populafionIt is this effect on the population en gaged in commercial pursuits and in the trade of distributing to the consumer countless millions of dollars worth of merchandise every year that is entirely overlooked by the proponents of the parcels post scheme when they contend that the effect of that systemwould be to more population from thecities to the country l Need of Enterprise A few pounds of enterprise are worth a ton of brag and bluster when town building and Improvement are consld ered ot IOWAJS fiNE ROADS How a Sand Highway Was Im proved With Clay ECONOMY OF DIRT ROADS Why a Council Bluffs Man Advocates Them In Place of the Macadam The Building and Improvement of Hill Roads Iowa has 102448 miles of highway- Of these 1453 miles are gravel roads and 241 miles are stone roads As evi dence of the fact that the citizens of this great state sire becoming aroused to the importance of highway im provement the state legislature of 1904 passed a law making the state college a highway commission They realized that such sn act would increase the value f the farm lands of the state would Improve the condition of the merchants as well as the farmers and would thus work for the benefit of all classes of society There is probably no influence which is more potent in the development of the tate than that of the good roads Jt brings the farmer nearer to town it increases the prosperity of the merchant and improves the social condition among ru ral classes Since the enactment of this law four good roads conventions and schools have been held The first two met at Ames the third at Council Bluffs and the fourth at Waterloo Aug 10 to 15 inclusive At each session it was the purpose to supplement the program with practical demonstration work in road building says H E Colby in Farm and Fireside At Waterloo about half a mile of sand road was improved This work was done by cutting down a hill in the vicinity of the stretch that was being improved and carrying soil which contained a portion of clay to the sand road Here it was thoroughly mixed with the sand thus combining the good effect3 of both and eliminating so far as possible the bad qualities of both W L Spoon of the good roads department of Washington was in charge of the work He was also upon the program and in his address he spoke of the sand road as being the only one which runs uphill both ways Sand heads the list of bad roads Wherever a thoroughly good dirt road is examined it will be found to contain at least a portion of sand and a portion of clay No matter how closely the sand may be packed there are spaces be tween the grains that cannot be filled The proper substance with which to fill these voids is clay If the two elements are not naturally mixed the only thing to do is to bring them to gether and mix them mechanically by plowing and harrowing This should be done while the sand and clay are wet In fact they can hardly be too wet to be thoroughly worked together If the road is sandy the clay should be drawn on If it is clay the sand should be mixed with the mud Fol lowing up the building of such a good road with persistent dragging will make almost an ideal highway Between Council Bluffs and Omaha there is a stretch of road three miles long Over this 110 wagons on the av erage pass every day Each carries a load of five tons or more This is a dirt road and is kept in fine condition at a thoroughly economical figure Its builder Colonel W F Baker of Coun cil Bluffs spoke upon the building and maintenance of a dirt road He advocate this in place of macadam b cause the dirt road can be built for a great deal less than macadam and it can be maintained at from 1 to 11h per cent of the expense necessary for maintaining a macadam road By the use of the road drag Mr Baker showed that it would be possible to reduce th road tax at least 50 per cent within si yearsThe building and Improvement of hill roads were discussed by Mr Dye He showed how by the use of the plow and split log drag the processes of na ture might be used to improve the hill road His idea was to plow a at each side of the hill and carry th soil toward the middle of the road He would not have a crown on a hill road but he would simply have it so drained that the water would not wash in the middle Each rain would have a tendency to cut down the surface of the road carrying the soil from the top of the hill to the bottom By dis tributing this by the use of the drag it is possible to materially reduce the grade in the hilly country each year As an evidence of the practical work in Mr Dyes system he maintained thirtysix miles of road in a hilly section of the state with an appropriation of 380 a year It was necessary to ask for a little donated labor but that was a decidedly minor matter Curtis Hill the state highway engi neer of Missouri spoke upon the building of stone roads He said that it was necessary to consider the hard ness the toughness and the cementing value of stone in selecting it for the purpose of road building The gravel which is commonly dug from the gravel bank contains enough lime to provide the cementing qualities If a roller cannot be afforded it Is advisa ble to spread this irravel as evenly as possible and let the traffic pack it He would not recommend dumping the gravel a IbSd at a sosdoing certain spots of the road become packed and the surface of the road has a wavy contour Sign of Carelejsntsa The weedy higkway marks a care

50000000 Bonds Yearly For Waterways Chicago Jan 28Congressman J E Ransdell of Louisiana president of the national rivers and harbor congress in addressing the Traffi- cclubof Chicago pleaded for the support of the railways in securing more and better waterways and advocated d a bond issue sufficient to secure 50 000000 a year for the purpose of improving rivers harbors and canals It is admitted by all said the speaker that many of our most val uable1Tlvers such as the Columbia the Missouri the upper Mississippi the Ohio the Red and the Tennessee are practically worthless during sev eral months of each year because of shallow water which impedes and ligiscountry and also of the intercoastall waters along both oceans and th gulf which must be connected by artificial canals t Mr Ransdell said that the com merce on American internal waters was about onethird as great as tne total commerce of the railroads it the freight carried by water had gone by rail Mr Ransdell said the cost in 1907 would have been increased 325387487 The speaker estimated the average cost of water transportation at from one third to onequarter of that braiI out waterways improvement heretofore made have been very prof itable and it is reasonable to assume that we will get slmliai benefit from 00gressmanwe do this work in a broad comer- henslve way taking up great such as the Ohio river or the lakes tothegulf deep waterways for example andx finish them within a definite period of eight or ten years or shall we proceed fin the unbusinesslike manner that has been followed out in regard to most of these improve ments Work on the Ohio river be gan 32 years ago on a plan to secure a minimum depth of six feet at all stations and only about onetenth of the project is now completed If past methods continue it will require ove 100 years taunish the present project of nine feet in the Ohio It seems unreasonable to suppose the speaker said that we can expect 50000000 to 60000000 year for waterways out of ordinar revenues of government unless there be a speedy change in our fiscal pol icy If bonds are necessary for high ways and railwaysand not small sums such as the proposed issue of 50000000 a year for the next ten years for waterways 500000000 in allbut more than 17 times that amount of actual outstanding railwa bonds and teii times as much as proposed new railway bonds then what is the objection to issuing bonds for the improvement of our waterways if there be no current revenues out of which to improve them If the people of New York by a large majority approve the big bond issue for the Erie canal as did the people of Illinois for their project also and the people of the Union for the Panama bond issue there is no doubt they would sanction and wel come a wise
