Necessity for Canals
It is not at all probable that there
will .'row up in this country a
powerful inland waterway system
in rivalry with the railroad system.
It is not at all reasonable to expect
that interests in which billions of
dollars are invested would remain
inactive while such a rival was tak
ing 011 strength. .Judge Loved K.
Chamberlain, president of the Mas
sachusetts State Hoard of Trade,
has recently put the proposition in
its right light. Discussing the re
lation of railroad freight trnnsiiorta
tion to water transportation, he
said: "What i wanted is relief,
which does not n ci warily involve
rivalry between the two systems;
one should supplement the other."
Operated independently, assuming
that the government had aided
them to the full extent of the pre
sent demands in their behalf, some
of the great waterway systems, East
and West, might become complete
failures. If it were incumbent on
them to meet the competition of the
railroads the rivalry of the rail
roads they would in all probability
be failures. They could prove
serious competitors to the railroads
on. through government subsidy.
lie fore the government shall adopt
the inland waterways as its own.
however, the entire question of gov
ernment ownership will have to be
considered, for we cannot have
state-aided transportation on one
side and privately-managed (trans
portation on the other. '
The question of government own
ership of the transportation lines of
the country, or government opera
tion of them, need not be precipita
ted, in the near future at all events,
if the waterway advocates shall give
calm consideration to the situation.
As Judge Chamberlain said, there
should he reasonable cooperation
rather than ruinous competition.
The railroad should be relieved of
the low-cost bulky freight, because
water can give it a rate that will
make its carriage profitable. The
railroaads, u relieved, can give
U'tter service to high-traflic. It is
a fact, as he says, that the flourish
ing cities are those where this heal
thy competition exists, and he
states a great truth when he adds:
"A workable system will not be
accomplished by merely digging
canals and deepening rivers; Rea
sonable regulation and proper con
trol of all means of transportation
must be provided for before we can
expect the relief we seek."
Jt will occur to the thinker, nat
urally, that, in view of the case
presented, and in consideration of
the all-important fact that this cry
for wati r transportation is going to
be continued until it is satisfied, the
railroads would be "only serving
their own interests by assisting in
the direction of the movement
rather than by opposing it. ''The
wonder is that so many of the great
railroad men have thus far failed
to see this.

Aguirre, Dee. 2"). Mr. 1. Mc
Lane general manager of Central
Aguirre and of the J'once At (iuaya
ma Hailroad, and Mrs. Me-Line,
gave a delightful "at home" to the
heads of the various departments
and the clerical force and families,
on Christinas Kve, at their elegant
residence in Aguirre, assisted by
friends and their children.
Everywhere the decorations were
suggestive of Christmas time. A
real brick mantel and a tall tinsel
gemmed fir tree brilliantly illumin
ed by candles completed the scene.
The violin and piano duets, vocal
music, recitations by the children,
were followed by the entrance of
Old Santa Clans, heavily laden with
gifts which were freely distributed,
giving supreme delight to the little
ones and brought back happy
memories to older participants.

Very Great Activity is in
An area of great railroad activity is
opening in Kurope and Asiatic Rus
sia for which unusually large invest
ments of British capital are antici
pated, following on the successful
negotiations for a comim rcial and
financial reproachnunt, seconding
the political entente, between Rus
sia and ( i reat Britain. These rail
road projects cover a vast ana,
principally in the west and south,
but they include two important lines
in the east, and a series of lilies in
the western as well as eastern Sibe
ria. While the projected roads in
lattle and White Russia and in the
Caucasus, that is, in the west and
the south, are no doubt important,
commercial and strategically, the
Siberian lines represent pioneer
work that interests the entire world.
Siberian communications have, re
ceived serious attention only since
the relatively recent expansion of
Russian imperialism toward the
Pacific, but until the conclusion of
the treaty of 1'ortsinouth, whatever
was done was largely incidental to
the trans-Siberian railroad, the
primary object of which was certain
ly not the development of northern
Asia. Although Russia has held
Siberia for several centuries and
Siberia's vast natural resources have
been known for generations, local
communications have been neglect
ed until now. The necessity of
entrenchment against Mongolian
immigration immediately after the
Russo-Japanese war gave a lasting
impetus to colonization and deve
lopment of local resources and
means of communication. As the
stream of settlers was, for obvious
reasons, directed mainly to the ter
ritories adjoining Manchuria and
Korea, the eastern part of Siberia
received preference, over the regions
nearer liome. How effective the
measures proved may be gathered
from the fact that last year the per
centage of immigrants returning
from the far cast to their homes had
sunk from 2" per cent to per
cent. Rut since then, there has been
a notable change in inner Asia;
Russian supremacy is no longer
menaced by Japan alone; the Chi
nese have quietly initiated a 'coun
ter movement against Rus.-ian ad
vance! and with their settlements
and military jnists e xtending grad
ually along the Russo Chinese fron-
tieT, the prompt e-olon..atiou of

Then fore, if the gnat project-: nf
railroads and fluvial navigation in
the Amur and Baikal ngions, m.
Yakutsk and even Kamtehatka, are
most in the' public ., it must be
conivdetl that, at this juncture-, the
propose-d nitwoik eif railroads in
we-stern Siberia and the- Kirghiz
ste-piK- in central Asia is of e ve n
greater inqiortani-e'. Se-mipal.itinsk
is the great center of these lines that
will conme-t the tanns-Siberian rail
road witl. those of Turke snan. Pre
liminary to the construction of the
three projecte-el lines to e-onnee-t
Scniipalatinsk with the three cen
ters of Yurga, Omsk and Uralsk,
the! roaels and bridge-s have be-e n im
proved, exte-ndeel and ine-reased so
that the! si-ttlenii'iit of these' regions
by the pe-asantry from southern
Russia may be e-xpe-cte-d to proee e'd
nuie-li more' rapidly than that of tin-
far easte rn lands. Kve-rything seems
to point to the- growth of a strong,
self-reliant gene-ration of far'nier-
pionee rs through Siberia. Rivd tin
