According to Fry's Magazine,
''there are now about 2000 golf clubs
in Great Britain, and it (9 generally
estimated that there are about 300,
000 players. Probably more new
courses were made in 1906 than in
1305, and money has been sunk in
them by thousnnds of pounds at a
time. While expenditure has been on
the grand scale, so have receipts. In
the summer a leading club with a
famous south coast links took in 200
new members, getting 3000 guineas
from them in entrance fees and male
ing them liable to it for 600 guineas
in annual subscriptions. Another
club took 60 in green fees from
visitors in three days, and another
drew 600 111 thesamewayin August
alone. So far as can be estimated, it
is believed that 20,000 people who
were previously non-golfers were con
verted to the game in 1906. What
with entrance fees and subscriptions
and outlay on materials, the average
new convert finds his initiation costs
him 10. As on the average each of
these new players will spend 15 a
year on the game how happy many
of us would be to get off with four
times that amount I we have secured
a permanent increase in income of at
least 300,000. On an average, mak
ing the very fullest allowance for . a
preponderance of comparatively
small provincial organizations, a golf
club cannDt represent less than 1000
worth of sunk capital, which means
2,000,000 for the whole country.
"We have, as stated, 200,000 go!
fers, and as we have suggested that
the annual expenditure of each of
them on the average such annual
expenditure being almost the sole
income of the yame cannot be less
than 15, this means 6 shillings a
week for all and sundry, and it can
hardl7 be possible for it to be an
overestimate. This gives us a total
of 4,500,000. To this has to be add
ed the special commencing expen-
ditrre of 20,000 new players at 10
each, which for some time may be rr
garded as a permanent source of in
come. These items added togethdr
give us a sum total of 4,700,000
spent on golf in the year.
"The playing of this game has given
rise to a considerable industry, and
many thousands of people earn a good
living through its agency. The major
ity of clubs employ a steward, wait
ers and other servants, a professional
and a varying number of groundmen
An average of ten would be a very
reasonable allowance for th!s staff,
which gives us 20,000 for the 2000
clubs. It is estimated that there are
80 000 caddies, giving us a total of
100,000 employes attached directly
to the various clubs.
"Then there are at least 3000 per
sons engaged in the ball making
trade, as salesmen and in various
other capacities. Just see how many
are needed by the great world of golf I
To begin with, there are those 300,000
golfers. It has been reckoned that
at the height of the summer golfing
season, when the players are busy
everywhere, not less than 500,000
balls are used up every week. This,
indeed, seems to be a most reasonable
estimate. It was semi officially stat
ed in Juue that one firm of makers,
and that not by any means tho big
gest, was working night and day and
turning out 100,000 balls a week.
Taki g the whole year round, if you
say one ball a golfer a wepk, that is
surely a very modest reckoning. At
thnt rat we have a grand total of
15,000,000 balls used up every , year
by the British golfers on British
inks Fifteen millions!"
Sea vs. Rail
Russians are Starving.
London, April 19. Writing from
the Russian famine district, Dr. Ken
nard, sent by the Society of friends
to investigate conditions, drang an
appalling picture of the suffering.
"This is the worst famine Russia
has known. No less than 20,000,000
people cannot live without aid to see
another harvest, and 1 may say that
this figure has been not only approv
ed by the Zemstvo organization, but
also by the Government itsplf. The
date of the harvest will vary with the
latitude, and the famine-stricken re1
gion is spread over such a wide area
(five times the size of France) that
more than ten degrees of latitude are
involved. This means that in direct
proportion from south to north the
havest will be from July 3 to July 23
"Funds will be needed to the end
of July to feed all these millions, and
then the harvest will brine relief
but there are many hundreds ol
thousands to whom the harvest will
not bring relief, for they have neither
land nor cattle. The few cows in
existence are in such a pitiful con
dition that they are useless for milk
ing purposes. The result is that
babies and young children are being
forced to eat the coarse black bread
and indigestible voung cucumbers.
"The people have sold their a'l
and, in mrMt cases, have likewise sold
in advance all that the harvest might
bring them. They have sold them
selves and their work, and from all
over the southeastern provinces re
ports are coming in of young women
ana" girls forced to prostitute them
selves to obtain food.
"For these suffering people relief
must be affordnd during the whole of
the coming year. Meanwhile epide
mics of disease add to the terrible
conditions obtaining. The difficulties
encountered in relieving these people
are made ten times worse now owing
to the practically impassable con
dition of the country roads. The
winter snows are melting and pro
jecting vast volumns of water in
countless cataracts toward the Volga
and travel is impossible."
Dr. Kennard appeals for tinned
milk and for tinned meats and meat
juices. He adds: "I have seen the
Zemstvo workers and their methods,
and can vouch for it that not only is
the work being carried out in a bus
inesslike and capable manner, but
that the most is made out of every

There are i.ow two watpr-and--ra.il
routes between the Pacific Coast and
the East- -one via the Isthmus of Te-
ruanteiiee mid the other via Pana
ma Each is destined to be an im
portant factor in transportation,
and the Panama route is already be
ing utilized more extensively than is
generally known. California seems
not to have fully grasped the oppor
tunity afforded by breaking the mo
nopoly that long held 6way on the
Isthmus of Panama. The people
further north, however, are bpginm
ing to take advantage of it. A re
cent dispatch from Seattle states
that difficulties of railway transpor
tation.have caused many merchants
of that city to ship their freight by
water from New York, transshipp
ing at the Isthmus of Panama, and
by way of San Francisco to Seattle.
By this means it is found that freight
arrives days, weeks and sometimes
months ahead of freight sent over
land across America from New York
city. It is further stated that freight
of immediate value can be rushed to
Seattle by means of the Isthmus of
Panama. About thirty-five days is
the time limit for stuff from New
York to that port, when it is trans
shipped at the isthmus and at San
Francisco. A direct line from New
York to the isthmus carries the car
goes on the Atlantic ocean. After
crossing the narrow neck of land beJ
tween the two Americas by rail, the
freight is sent to San Francisco by
water and thence again by water to
Seattle. Several large steamship
lines and many tramp steamships
are engaged in this commerce.
The car shortage appears to have
crused resort to the Panama route
Merchants along the entire Pacific
Coast are complaining about it. Tt
is pven nssertd at Portland that
Christinas goods which should . have
been sold during the holidays four
months ago have not yet arrived in
that city. They werr ordored more
than a year ao am) paid for more
than eight months am. This is pns.
nihly an extreme rase. But that
large businpss interests have bepn
nnd stil! are iluinagcd by l!.c inability
of the land lines 10 handle freight, on
time is not disputed In view tf this
it will not he strange if there should
be mure general resort to the water
and rail routes. That via Tehuan
tepec has the advantage of being
much the shorter. It promises to
handle an enormous amount of freight
and is preparing to increase accord
ingly its already large fleet of Aineri
can-Hawaiian liners. With this new
route aud with the longer one via the
isthmus, the near future should see a
revelation in the carrying trade be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts. Sau Diego Unioa. 1
