CASTOR I A
For Infants and Children,
The Kind You Have Always Bought
600D FOR C011
IMPROVE WENT OF WATERWAYS
WILL DEVELOP RESOURCES
OF EVERY SECTION.
FKEICUT CARRIED CHEAPLY
Make Direct Saving In Cot ef Trans
portation by the Water Routes, and
Indirectly Serve to Lower Railway
The claim has been made in previ
ous articles and facts and figures
given to support the claim that wa
terways carry freight more cheaply
than the railways do or can. and that
they compel the railways to carry
freight more cheaply than they other
wise would, making a saving of hun
dreds of millions of dollars a year, even
under present conditions, and indicat
ing a vast Increase In that saving if all
waterways should be improved. And
then the surprising assertion was
made that the surest way to enlarge
the business and increase the profits
of the railroads of the United States
is to Improve the waterways ol the
United States. The best guide to the
future is the experience of the past,
so let us see what has actually hap
pened to railways when waterways
have, been Improved.
That the improvements in the chan
nels and harbors of the Jakes have
been of great benefit, both to the rail
ways which parallel thetr shores and
to those which run from lake cities to
the interior, is a fact so plain that
it needs no argument to support it
There are no more prosperous and
profitable roads in the country than
those that serve the region tributary
to the lakes. But no one questions
the wisdom of continuing the Improve
ment of the lakes, or of our ocean
harbors. The real question Is as to
the improvement of our rivers, and if
we wish to study the effect of river
improvement, either on railway reve
nues or national development, wa
must go to Europe.
Results in Bohemia.
During the fifteen years that im
provements were under way on the
Elbe river, in Bohemia, the river traf
fic, as a natural result of the bettei
channel, increased fivefold. But traf
fic on the competing railways In
creased still more largely and the dlv-
idends on the main line, from Tepllti
to Ausslg, rose to 16 per cent, per
Similar results followed the canali
zation of the River Main, from May-
ence, on the Rhine, to Frankfort,
which was finished In the latter part
of 18S6. The river traffic, which
amounted to only 15G.000 tons in that
year, began to grow and has kept on
growing, being l,27r,000 tons in 1902.
There are two railroads between
Frankfort and Mayence, one on each
side of the river. What happened to
them? Did their business show a se
rious falling off? Or wore they forced
Into the hands of a receiver? On the
contrary their traffic, which was 911,
000 tons In 18S0. also began to grew,
and by 10"2 had reached 1,90!),000
tons, or more than double what It was
when the railroads had a practical
monopoly of the business of Frank
fort. , The mere statement of the In
creased tonnage does not tell the
whole truth of the matter, for the
tonnage was not only more than
doubled in quantity, but greatly
raised in grade, so that It could pay,
and did pay, a much higher rate per
ton per mile.
Fine German Waterways.
Practically all the railways of Ger
many are state owned and state oper
ated. Out of a total of 35,000 miles,
in round numbers, only about 2,500
miles are operated by private com
panies. Germany also has one of tb
finest systems of waterways in the
world, and a study of the balance
sheet of the German railway system
shows that the results which followed
the Improvement -of the River Main
are not an exception, a mere coinci
dence, but are the natural outworking
of a principle of general application.
In the calendar year 1907, after paying
for operation, maintenance, repairs,
renewals, new equipment, Interest on
bonds, contribution to the sinking
fund, and every other item which the
most careful bookkeeping required to
be charged up, the German railways
turned S1C4.000.000 of absolutely net
revenues into the treasuries of the
various states. This was $5,050 per
mile of line operated, while the corre
sponding figure on United States rail
ways for the fiscal year 1906-7 was
only $1,907 a little over one-third as
Much the greater part of the total
revenue of the German states Is de
rived from their railways, 71 cents out
of every dollar received by Prussia in
1907 being so obtained. Yet Gorman
statesmen keep on, year after year,
spending money earned by tbelr rail
ways in building and improving water
waya to compete with those same rail
ways, on which they depend as the
principal source of national Income.
In the light of the facta given above
it will not do to say that these Ger
man statesmen do not know what they
are about On the contrary, they are
.acting, as has been well said, "In fur
therance of a policy the wisdom of
which time and experience have fully
Always and everywhere the result
is the same the improvement of a
waterway Is a benefit to competing
railways. For this result, as for any
other, there Is a good and sufficient
reason, but It must be left for another
time to till what Unit reason Is.
WARMER SAYS WEATHER MAN
Frost Failej to Fall on Iowa as Pre
D'S Mo'nes. Aug. 27. Iowa's cors
was mercifully saved by the weather
man. who just at the last moment
changed his mind with regard to the
fro.t which he promised would fall
over the state. Not a speck of frost
touched Iowa. The nearest It got was
South Dakota and frost was reported
at both Huron and Rapid City.
Sibley, In the northwestern part of
the state, reports the lowest tempera
ture of any Iowa town. The thermom
eter fell to 3!) at that point. In Des
Moines it got no lower than 45.
Dr. Chappel Is optimistic and the
fi-ars he expressed over the probable
fate of the corn crop are displaced by
the smiling assurance that the corn Is
all right. He says there Is no more
frost in sight, that It will undoubtedly
stay away from Iowa until Iowa Is
ready for it to come anil that the corn
Is just as safe as though It were har
vested. IOWA CENTRAL

IN CONFLICT OVER LAKE
Kossuth County Land Owners Clash
With Minnesota Neighbors.
A!r,ona, la., Aii. 27. Considerable
excitement exists in the north end of
the county over tho proposed draining
of liancroft lake. This lake Is located
iu Grant township on the lino between
Iowa and Minnesota, and covers quite
an area of good farm land. Kossuth
county surveyors question t he prac
ticability of draining the lake, but the
olflclals across the line in Minnesota
clulm that It can be done. They pro
pose to drain the part of the lake In
that state and then build a dyke on
the state lino to prevent tho water
from Iowa coming across. If this Is
carried out It will create much feeling
among the Iowa farmers. Tho matter
Is being wntched with Interest to see
how the end will bo.

Supreme Court Takes Case Un
INJUNCTION STAYS THE SAME.
Waits Argument Before Full Bench on
Sept. 12 Nebraska Company Re
strained From Making Any Connec
tion With Independents at Platts
mouth, Nebraska City and Papillion.
Lincoln, Aug. 27. Tho supreme
court will not modify the temporary
Injunction issued to restrain the Ne
braska Telephone company troin mak
ing any connection with the independ
ent companies at Plattsmouth, Ne
braska City ami Papillion. Arguments
for a moditlcatlon of the injunction
were made and tho case taken under
advisement. The court decided that
inasmuch as the full court was not
present It would not pass on the ques
tion until argument could be made to
the full court. The injunction Is to be
argued before the court Sept. 12 an!
it is probable no reargument for a
modification will be made before that
In answer to the chargo of the attor
ney general or those whom he has ap
pointed to look after the case, that
the connection with tho Independents
at the three places named is in re
straint of trade, attorneys for these
companies Insisted that trade would
bo Increased by the consolidation. At
least they held that as there was ft
question whether trade would be de
crease, or Increased the injunction
should not prevail until after a thor
ough trial of the consolidated com
panies, when It could be seen Just the
amount of business tlmt would be-
done. It was pointed out that this
was the argument advanced by the
attorney general when he secured an
Injunction against the express com
panies to prevent them from violating
tho Sibley law. The express com
panies alleged that they woidd lose
money by the operation of the law.
The attorney general held that no one
could tell whether they would or not
until the rates were put into opera
tion and given a fair trial. The court
held with the attorney general In the
