SAN FRANCISCO. September 10.-
Dt. illiam Riley, doiilitms his own
sanity and desiring to have his mind
quieted as to his mental epiiilibrium,
was examined by tlie anility eommiion
thi morning and foui,l competent.
Dr. Riley's fear in this direction was
caused by the fate that some of Iim re
latives, believing him to lie slightly de
ranged, four month ago sent him to
Mmont sanitarium, where he remained
until recently, appearing to be perfectly
right in Ins mind. Hut the doubt rcmaui'
ed as far as he wan concerned just the
same, and he decided to satisfy himself
that he was mentally competent.
For three days lie wan under the
supervision of the Insanity Commis
sion and seen under all conditions.
SUBWAY DECLARES DIVIDEND
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. Directors of
the Iiiterhorough Rapid Transit Co. yes
terday declared the regular quarterly
dividend of 2 1-4 per cent on that com

was on the subway corporation's, stock

Cllll lH IllOst Hllel'CsUIlL'. MtlllO uov
rnment talileiaiw with an eye for the
piuint ha evolved a quaint array
based on the amount of freight passing
throiuch the Soo canal during UHMl, The
compilation proved in a nml entertain
lug way the marvelous growth of lake
traflic and shows the extent to which
water, transportation has advanced,
During the last year enough coal wa
transported north through tho Ditilt
river to fill train 2,2.10 . miles in
length! According to the tatiticlnn,
these figures re mo4 conservative. The
total tonnajm was 12,000,0011, and he
based hi calculation on 50-ton e ra
the largest coal car mnl by any rail
ro.ul. If the ordinary, c-ommnii coal car
ef smaller design and capacity had been
utilij.'d tlto train might not have found
room in the United States to operate
in, unless it took the form of the letter
Jumping from ptxvl to wheat and (lour
the statiMuiati lets hi pencil Jot down
a set of remarkable figures. Taking the
amount of grain carried last season, re
ducing it to flour and adding the actual
flour tonnage carried, he llmU that there
passed through the canal an aggregate
ot 42,93,(W3 barrels
Going ahead another step in his calcu
lations he discover that this amount
will produce more than 10,000,000.000
leaves, figuring 250 loaves of one pound
each to the barrel. This v.ist amount
of the "staff of life" would feed 21.
4'8,.H100 person, for one day, if each
consumed half a loaf. Or, since such Uu-
pendous figures stagger the imagina
tion, it would keep 1.000,000 adults
alive for a period of sixty years
The report of the tonnage of the
lakes Is marvelous, the statistician's
figures prove. And yet, when Senator
Norveil, the first United States Senator
from Michigan, urged m. Congress In
1S43 that a grant of puhlic land for
the building of the canal lie made by
the Federal government he was laughed
to sconi. The brilliant Henry Clay
scoffed at the project.
I he money might as well lie wasted
for a project in the moon," he said.
I'eculnrily enough, thU attitude of
indifference was maintained by the
American people until very recently.
Tlie National Rivers i Harbors Con
giess has labored for six years to
arouse the country from its lethargy,
but only a short time ago did this
work begin to bear fruit. Now through
out the entire country projects are un
tier way for the deepening of navigable
streams and the building of chains of
canals to link rivers or hikes.
The National Rivers & Hailior Con
gres pledged to no inniviihial pro
ject of improvement. It stands fof a
broad national policy and its members
are shipjiei'8, business men and commu
nities all over the country. Its sccrC'
try, Cnpt. J. F. Ellion, of Cincinnati
is working like a Trojan to increase the
ahvady great membership, in order that
the organization nulv stand before Con
ns the crytalfiwition of the se
mcnt of tho country and demand that
the government appropriate not less
than $50,000,000 a year for this needed
vork of internal improvement.
In the meantime the activity of In
dividuals is quickening along these lines
every day. Only a short time ago or
ders were placed with lake shipyards by
the Lackawanna Steel Co. for eight ves
selsthree of 9,000 ton capacity and the
remainder of 7,500 each. Such a fleet
will caiTy an aggregate of 04,500 tons
of freight each trip, a, load that will
fill 1,000 ears, comprising 50 trains.
