WASHINGTON, Aug. 6. (Special.) Sen
ator Boles Penrose of Pennsylvania, chair

aays the the subject of transportation was
always the great problem for Inland sec
tlons of the country. That cheap and
abundant facilities for the transportation
of the great natural products of the forest.
farm and mine not only add to the value
of all farm and city property within the
sphere of their Influence, but Increase ma
terially the growth of natural wealth and
reduce the average cost of the necessities
of life in the great centers of population.
"I believe that -there is tio subject now
engaging tha attention of the people more
truly national- In its scope than the ays
tematio scientific and permanent Improve
ments of the - Inland waterways o the
country," said Senator Penrose. "Frankly
I have thought sometimes that there was
a good deal of exaggeration about certain
bodies of water because their commercial
needs have never been apparent, but as
te the necessity for the Improvement of
certain rivers of the country I have not I
the least doubt.
The Interstate Commerce commission
In its far reaching decision recently handed
down" affecting rates between the Atlantic
ocean and the Pacific coast notified car
riers that they will be allowed to meet
water competition to a. reasonable extent
which seems to give materways a new
status and pat them upon a new footing.
'While I believe In a conservative treat
ment of our waterways, I am not blind
to the fact that certain Improvements must
be made In our rivers looking always to
their final completion when their up-kaep
will be -the only charge upon the govern
ment. And In order to bring this about
we should have annual river and harbor
bills, conservatively made up to cover
continuing contracts to the end that work
begun on our rivers be completed within
a reasonable time.
"The question of an Intelligent treat
ment of our rivers, harbors and canals
should neither be local nor sectional. It
la a national question and Its solution
should be along national lines and it should
not be made the subject of politics. In this
connection I cannot help but pay tribute
to the work of the National Rivers and
Harbors congress which has been produc
tive of great good In bringing about le fi
nite results and In educating the public
mind aa to the development of Inland
waterway projects and I am In hearty
sympathy with its work and purposes."

SALT LAKE CITY. Utah. Aug. S.-The
attempt of a bandit to hold up an eleatrio
car filled with pleasure seekers returning
from Salt Air pavilion late last night re
sulted In slight injury to several passeugers
and the defeat of the robber, who escaped
with little booty. Several shots were fired
and a young man who grappled with the
bandit waa shot through the hand.
As the train slackened speed at the city
limits, a man sprang upon the running
board of the open tar and began shooting.
One bullet shattered an oil lamp in the
car. A second shot grazed the ear of Mrs.
Thomas Hodder, who sat with her hus
band. The revolver waa then thrust
against Hodder's breast.
'Here you, get out on this board ana
gather in the shekels before I blow your
d head off!" commanded the holdup.
Hodder climbed from his seat and became
an unwilling accomplice of the robber.

the robber. "Get busy now, and dig vp

About midway of the car, Hodder began

opportunity and made a Jump for the
bandit, grasping his gun. In the struggle
Porter was shot through the right hand
and both he and the bandit fell from the
moving train into the grass.
J. M. McDermott, an Ogden hotel pro

from the train and went to the assistance

WALTERS IS STILL IN JJAIL
Bloax Falls Mam Charged with
Attempted Harder Unable to
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Aug. . (Special.)
Unable to furnish a bond in the sum of
$6,000, J. G. Walters, a former prominent
garln commission and elevator man of
Minneapolis and Sioux Falls, hss been
lodged in the county Jail to await trial
on the charge of assault with a dangerous
weapon with Intent to kill. This charge
grew out of a recent attempt to shoot and
kill Mrs. Sarah Blelfus, who formerly had
been engaged as a stenographer for
Walters. The cause of the shooting yet
remains considerable of a mystery, but
the most plausible theory Is that it was
the outgrowth of Mrs. Blelfus resisting un
welcome attentions. Walters some months
ago waa charged with embezzlement and
fled to British northwest territory, where
he waa arrested and brought back to South
Dakota. He effected a settlement in con
nection with this and the charge waa
withdrawn. The trial of tha present case
against him promises to be sensational.

The total delay to the fast train because

I felt a tug, as It left the rails, and threw
on the emergency brake. That broke the
coupling and the engine went off."
