tho railroailM do Iheir most reuiuiicr-
nlivi! business. If our yrjiil ri'i.r
systems were improved thoroughly
ho that navigation thereon was first
irliiNH, freight rates would lie much
cheaper, hut there would he Mich n
largo growth of imputation nnil busi
ness of every kind, tho cream of
which would go to the railroads, that
they wquld profit very largely there
by. Ah a business proposition it
would pay Ihcm to havo tho water
ways fully developed.
"The tracks of rnilroiiilH nro so
standardized that n car loaded at
New Orleans can go to Chicago, Hus
ton or anywhere, in the Union with
out change, mid our navigahlo walors
will never oceompliKh Iheir full mis
sioii until Ihey havo similar stniid
ards and connections. A union of
l.ako Michigan with tho gulf would
ho n mighty step in this direction, and
if followed by proper improvement of
all the other rivers in this imperial
valley would give us tho necessary
standard for tho richest and most
populous part of the republic. The
Mississippi is now being joined to
I ho Kin Grande hy an intcrcoastal
canal, on which work iu in progress;
tho people of Florida, Alabama mid
Mississippi nro strongly urging n
coastal canal from the Atlantic to
New Orleans; and the Atlantic const
from Massachusetts to Florida is
thoroughly alive to the necessity of
an inland waterway from Boston to
Jacksonville; hence wo'mny reasoiw
nlily expect to see iu tho near future
a standard system of canals and riv
ers that will permit freight to move
by water without breaking hulk from
nearly every point in tho Union east
of the liockics to every other point;
just as is dono now hy rail."

NARROWLY WATCH ROADS
SEATTLE, Nov. 1. Tho railwny
commissions iu the various stales of
the northwest are subjecting the
equipment of the transportation eom-
iianics to close scrutiny at this tune.
The Northern Pacific has received a
report on ils line iu the state of Mo'i
tanu from tho local commission, as
follows: "You have n good railroad,
particularly the main line; (rack is
well ballasted, good sub-drainage,
grade revisions and line changes, all
of which indicate large expenditure
for betterment. The result is a track
that is a pleasure to ride over, and
these conditions should minimize the
accidents incident to travel."
