nurli i ace In his mi-sMiKf to the sub-Jt't-t
of waterway development In
addition, the Missouri legislature u
doited a resolution urging- greater ap
propriations for tho Mississippi River
ami tb'i'liirlng that tho four million
people of that State are eagr for the
drvi'lormont of the Htreruu.
Undoubtedly the MlrongcHt diyiwiont
ri'i-elvi'd wan ii resolution adopted by
the li-Klshittiro, of YiUuhm.ih and pnisod
unanimously by the Ilousi mid Senate,
n which the petition of tho National
ltlvers and Harbors Congress was
heartily endorsed. This petition ask
for the annual appropriation of $50,-
000,000 at the hands of the government
for the Improvement of tho rivers and
l:arbors of tho country. The Arkan
sas Holons displayed the broad spirit
that Is animating Congress, by refrain
ing from asking for any especial ap
propriations for development within
tho cnnflnea of their own state. They
recognize that the work Is one of na
tional Importance, and, with an ade
quate appropriation each year, they
feel assureJ that the rivers of their
own commonwealth are certain even
tually to receive a Just share.
Congresman Josheph R'. Ramsdell of
Louisiana, who Is president of the
National Rivers and Harbors Congress,
has declared that, the organization will
bring all Its influence to bear to gain
tho point to which it Is pledged.
He contends that with an expendi
ture of $50,000,000 annually the rivers
and harbors of the country will not
only .be developed scientifically and
quickly, but their development will In
crease greatly the commercial activity
of the United States, and, as a conse
quence, foster the national prosperity. ,
To the end that the influence of the
organization ba Increased, J, F. Ellison
of Cincinnati, Ohio, Its secretary, has
Just Issued a call urging every river
Improvement association, commercial
organization, city, town, state and In
dividual Interested in the question, to
become members of the National Riv
ers and Harbors Congress. It Is hoped
that this call will be responded to en
thusiastically and that tlio members
In attendance at the next convention
will estublesh a record. At the last
convention, hold hero In December,
delegates were present from thirty
two slates, two territories and the
District of Columbia, while the gov
ernors of fourteen states and the may
ors of twenty-six cities sent representatives.
It Is recognized here in Washington
that the need for an additional sys
tem of transportation In this country
Is urgent. The congestion of traffic
on the railroads, resulting in coal fa
mines in the northwest and financial
suffering in the midst of plenty, has
opened the eyes of Congress to the fact
that something must be done to sup
plement the existing channels of com
merce. Naturally, attention Is focus
ed on tho waterways of the country,
for the United States will have the
most magniflclent system of rivers and
harbors of any nation In the world
once they are developed.
