MUST IMPROVE WATERWAY8
Only Practicable Way To Solve
Freight Problem, 8ys Hill.
Now York, April 1. James J. Hill,
president of tho Great Northern, taking
as a toxt tho recent action of l'reiident
Ilooaovelt In appointing a waterway
commission, said today that through
tho waterway of tho country, properly
Improved, must come tho much desired
improvement In tho freight-handling
conditions. The country, he said, must
look to it waterways for Immediate re
icf of tho freight pressure.
"If tho government would Improve
it waterways and extract from them
one-fifth of their latent possibilities,"
said Mr. Hill, "tho frelghl-handling
problem soon would bo nearer solution
than the railroads themselves can
ever hope to bring It.
"There lias been In tho past a feeling
among some rallioad men that water
ways development would bo inimical to
railroad Interest. I do not think it
would, and If thl idea lias not already
wnony disappeared It la In a (air way
of doing so soon. We realized that we
havo created in tho prosperity cf the
country a condition that call loudly
lor teller, and any mean to that end
would be welcome.
"Take, for Instance, a 16-foot chan
nel In the Mississippi from St. Iui to
.New Orleans. There Is no more Im
portant work for tho general govern
ment than this Improvement It might
cost (100,000,000, hut when it was
finished a single powerful tow boat
could pull from 30 to 40 tialnloads.
Heavy freights, requiring only moder
ate cpetd in transportation, would go
to the seaboard by way of the Gulf, and
there would no longer bo freight con
gestion between the East nnd West."
ADVANCE RATES ON GRAIN
Railroads Take Revenge For
Cent Fare Laws.
Washington, April 1. In accordance
with their intention expressed somo
timo ago, the railroads constituting the
Western trunk lines, the Central Traffic
association and the Eastern trunk lines
havo filed with the Interstate Com
merce commission tariff increasing
tholr rateea on east bound grain and
grain product, to becomo effective
about Apill 1.
This sction wsa Ukcn, it I under
stood, becauio of tho enactment by leg
islature of some ol the western states
of laws regarded as inimical to their
Interests. The particular law to which
the railroads took exception was the
2cr nt faro act of the legislature of Ne
braska. When the new tarifls wero died, the
commission suggested to tho carriers
that tlio time (or putting the increased
rates into effect should bo postponed.
Tho carrier cheerfully acquiesced and
the commission ha granted the carrier
permission to pout and (lie amendments
postponing the proposed advances In
rates to May 1.
