earlier days thought of looking to the
commerce clause of the constitution
for any such power. In fact many,
including prominent jurists of that
period, regarded that provision as
only furnishing authority for the pro promulgation

It was easier to find authority for the

a nation we were more inclined to
enter upon that line of governmental
activity than to improve our naviga navigable

To be sure, this sentiment against
the participation by the government
in the improvement of rivers and har harbors

ficiently strong to confine congress

$o"3'00,000 has been appropriated for
the improvement of our harbors and

try country to expend on its harbors, rivers
and canals, and it proclaims the fact
that the federal government has not
neglected our navigable waters.
Xor have the results been disap disappointing,
pointing, disappointing, whether we consider the
physical work accomplished or the
benefits accruing to commerce. The
most of the projects undertaken have
"been carried to completion, resulting
in marked improvement of the navi navigable
gable navigable features of the waterways.
Channels have been widened, banks
made more stable, and eighteen im important
portant important canals constructed; and
where greater depth has been sought,
as in most instances, the increase has
been from one to twenty-six feet. So
that with our three hundred and one
harbors, great and small, and our
twenty-five thousand miles of naviga navigable
ble navigable rivers and canals, we have the
finest system of waterways in the
world. When we consider that no
stream, eyen though classed as navi navigable,
gable, navigable, is in its natural state suitable
for modern commerce, and that all
of our harbors have required improve
ment to fit them for the ever-increas- i
ing demands of commerce, one can
readily understand that at least ade adequate
quate adequate physical results have come
from the large aggregate of appropri appropriations
ations appropriations made.
Then, too, the benefits accruing to
the commerce of the country, both
foreign and domestic, as evidenced by
its phenomenal growth following the
physical development of those water waterways,
ways, waterways, have likewise been gratifying.
It is true that on a few projects, com commercial

the outlay have not followed im improvement,

instances an increased commerce
has been the result.
Mr. Alexander 11. Weber, C. E., as assistant
sistant assistant engineer and secretary to the
board of engineers for rivers anl
harbors, in a very interesting and in-
i structive article written in 1910, esti
mated this increase at 340,217,700
tons. In that statement reference is
made to the total tonnage of all riv
ers, harbors and canals, which in includes
cludes includes many duplications; but it is
nevertheless instructive, as it shows
the commercial importance of the re respective
spective respective improvements. The actual
existing water-borne commerce is
somewhat difficult of ascertainment,
but Mr. Weber fixed the amount of
the then existing commerce, after due
allowance for duplications, at ap approximately
proximately approximately 256,000,000 tons. The in interstate
terstate interstate commerce commission makes
it something more, giving the amount
for the year 1906 as 265,545,804 tons.
Even the smaller figures present a
good showing and one that should
greatly encourage the friends of wa waterway

But the whole story is not told in a
simple statement of the increase o:
our water-borne commerce. It is
worth much to furnish the people

when we consider the great reduc reductions

as a result of these improvements,
the full significance of the work done
may be appreciated.
It is difficult to determine just what
this reduction has been, but we know
it is large. The annual reports of the

report upon the effect of such im improvements

that in many instances such reduc reductions

more than a dollar a ton. Even if
an average saving of half that amoun1
has been effected each year on our
water-borne commerce alone, the
assresate for all these vears has been
enormous and amounts to much more
than the large sum expended on our
waterways. When to this saving ii

transportation, the freight tonnage of
which amounts now to more than
one billion tons per annum, it will
be seen that the people have been
well repaid for the large outlay by
the federal government, even though
not all the waterways thus improved
have shown satisfactory results so
far as increased traffic is concerned.
As before stated, there are not
many such instances as compared
with the whole number of projects
undertaken by the government.
Among those most prominently men mentioned

sissippi Mississippi canal, commonly known as
the Hennepin canal, and the Missou Missouri
ri Missouri and Mississippi rivers. But there
have been in each case peculiar and
local reasons for the failure of the
waterway to respond in commercial
development to the improvement
made, which will doubtless be remov removed
ed removed in the future.
The Hennepin canal was, perhaps,
constructed too far in advance of any
commercial demand for the same, but
it is a substantial structure, easy of
maintenance, and will doubtless last
for an indefienite period. In the
meantime, the country tributary to
the canal is developing, farm and
other products are increasing, freight
tonnage on the waterway is growing

years it will meet the hopes and ex expectations

The amount of money spent upon
the Missouri river is not large when
the length and importance of that
stream are considered, but it has not
been in condition to develop a com commerce

work of improvement laid out by the
engineers has never been carried to
completion. The work has recently
been resumed, however, and congress
has expressly determined to complete
the project for the lower river that
portion between Kansas City and its
mouth within ten years.
It is hard to believe that the glory
of this great waterway has departed,
never to return. Traffic is already

The Atlanta Journal tlls of a young

county, Georgia, who had committed
no crime, but were wanted as witness witnesses
es witnesses in a case, and were therefore kept
prisoners in the Fulton county jail.
They were newly married and were
practically compelled to spend their
honeymoon bt-hind the bars. The Star
didn't suppose that such a rotten piece
of injustice could take place in a
Southern state. When one reflects that
Georgia has many rich men who only
need to nod their heads to .-ati.-fy the

keeping these young people shut up at

versy controversy regarding the slaughter of birds:
"The first thing that should be done
is to pass a law making it unlawful
for any one to own a .22 calibre rifle,
as they are the cause of the death of
more harmless and insect eating birds
than all other guns combined. As a
usual thing boys take the little .22 out
and as they are unable to find any
game birds to kill they shoot every everything

the firstv thing they see is that old do domestic

and dear to our grandfathers. If my
old grandfather had seen or known of
me killing one of them he would have
given me a thrashing that I never
could have forgotten. But not so to today.
day. today. Fathers and grandfathers will
buy the boys a rifle and then stand by
and see the youngsters take down the
sweet-voiced s'nger, and then brag
about what a fine shot he made. But
it does not stop at the mocking birds
it is every kind that they can get
near enough to, and every now and
then one of the little fellows kills an another
other another boy."
Every boy wants a gun, and the Star
thinks every boy should be given a
gun, and taught how to use It. Instead
of passing another fool law, it would
be better to teach the boys not to
shoot at the harmless and useful birds.

"Nan. for heaven's sake see Jim be before

what he's going to say to that judge."
"I'll do my best. I'll send my card
in and ask him to see me at once."
"Good. When he returns to the court

Bivens went back to his seat beside
his lawyers and watched the court of officer

He frowned and hesitated, rose and
slowly followed the man.
Nan seized his hand.
"Oh, Jim. I'm so worried. Cal says
you are going to make a desperate fight
against him this morning."
"I'm going to make the usual p!ea

"I'm going to do my level best for

dogged determination. "You needn't

"If any other man said it, no, but

He turned abruptly and left her. In

One of the things which had increas

have enthroned as our ruler every everywhere,

never added a penny to the wealth of

doing? In the midst of poverty that

the decrees of a just and loving God
who created this world? These things
are not the result of his law, but the
results of the violation of law."
The speaker paused, drew close to
the judge and then in low, impassioned
tones told as if he were talking to a
father the Ptory of Woodman's life and
the events which drove him to madne s
on the fatal night of his crime. In
flashes of vivid eloquence he described
the magnificent ball and drew in som

ruin, the man who had given his blood
to his country and his daily life in an
unselfish ministry to the homeless and

cried in ringing tones, "the repeal of
