eastern and western coasts of the
United States and between the eastern
ports of our country and Pacific coast
points In Central and South America
has greatly Increased In recent years.
In 190C, when the Panama railway of
fered the only rail connection via the
Isthmus between tho Atluntic and the
Puclflc coasts, tho total traffic
amounted to ubout six million dol
lars, In 1907, on January 1 of which
)ear tho Tehuantepec railway became
available, thn total was twenty-one
million dollars; in 1908, forty-two
million; in 1909, sixty-two million; In
1910, eighty-two und a half million;
nnd In 1911, ninety-nine million dol

The growth In trafllc by the re
spective routes has been, according to
figures compiled by tho llurenu of
Statistics, Department of Commerce
and Ijibor: la tho I'nnnmn railway,
from ten million dollars in 1907 to
twenty-six million In 1911; and via
tho Tehuantepec railway, from cleum
mid n half million In I9U7 tu seventy
three and three quarters millions In
1911. In 1907 tho trulllc was almost
equally d hided between tho two
routes, while, last year ubout three
fourths of the total was moved across
tho Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
Of tho merchandise passing from
the Atlantic coast ports westward
across tho Isthmuses, aggregating
slty-tu und u half million doltnrs
in value, four million dollars' worth
went to Hawaii via Tohiinntepoe; forty-eight
und u half million went to
Pacific const cities, forty-one million
dollars worth being shipped by way
of Tehuantepec and eight and n half
million dollars worth by way of Pan
ama; and a little oter eight nnd one-
half million dollars worth went to for
eign countries, of which nil but one
million dollars worth was by way of
Panama. These west-bound ship
ments left the Atlantic seaboard at
New York and Philadelphia, tho hit
ter's share being less than one million
dollars aluo und that of New York,
sixty-one and n half million. The
westward moeinent Included u total
of thirty-two and a half million dol
lars value to San Francisco, ten and
a half million to Sun Diego, four und
und a Imlf million to Seattle, nearly
one million to Los Angeles, ubout i
half ihllllon dollnrs each to Tacoma
und Portland, and smaller amounts to
Oakland nnd other Pacific coast
points. About eighty per cent of this
traffic was moved via the Isthmus of
Tehuantepec. To foreign countries

cities, aggregating eight and u half
million dollars In 1911 ns against five
and three-quarter million u year earl
ier, were distributed to Peru, two mil

Here also may bo iilarcil thu ob
servation of a local leslilent to his
friend "Slnco Umdoii came Uoodhuo
seems to be a socialist." This person
may huve had no ideas upon the sub
ject of socialism pi lor to Mr Lundon'a
arrival (If ho has, now), so ho Judged
mo by himself, n most natural tiling
to do when your own thinking ma
chine needs oil, but mine doesn't.
While I consider myself honored by
the friendship of Mr. ami Mrs. Lon
don, nnd shall always resent slurs of
any kind against them, it Is simply
i matter Of fact to say that I am not
i socialist of .Mr. London's type. Por
hnps this Is due to Intellectual limita
tions on my part or to undeveloped
sympathy I grunt this but I cannot
iccept the inoro radical theories if
my brilliant und earnest friend. Up
on such points socialists ill Iter ns
much ns theologians do. And as to
remedies for the evils of society rec
ognized and deplored by all thinking
men, socialist's opinions Ihoiciipou
cannot be nindo equal radii for tho
continuity of a common circle. In n
paper entitled 'The True llemody"
(Christian Register, Doston) I said li
long time ugor 'l
"All of us with ultrnistlc yearnings,
Jt least, who sympathize with tho Ill-
conditioned and unfortunate In life
Have, redd and observed enough to
become' convinced that something In
nir economic system needs adjustment.
Wlilto anxious to understand each
Individual point of view, and tolerant
Jf even an Intolerant attitude on tho
part of radical socialistic - nrgunlza
lions, it is safe to say that none of
tho reul socialists are ublo to up
pi ono of or assist in furthering tho
methods of many who aio called so
cialists in tho ultra-radical sense.
No matter how Jmt tho cause' mny
appear, I doubt If any revolution n-iy
resort to force, has ever been Justi
fiable, because moro patience, more
skill In diplomacy, more human tact,
more effort to avoid the seemingly
(net liable, would have been success
ful in averting the catastrophe. Those
ftho wuvo the i oil flag hero" and
abroad, who write und speak only to
arousu angry feelings against more
fort.inato neighbors.: w,hu dwell on
ineir miseries w'nuiino spirit or re
venge and foiclble, jiogsesBion of an
other's property, inny call themselves
socialists, when they aro only ran
ters und demagogues."
Ami as long ugo as 1900 I said In
my book that tlih" only remedy for
tho basic ovll of society was equalize
lion of intrinsic labor." Under "Work.
Ing With tho Hands" (Chilstlan lleg
Ister, Iloston) I wrote:
"Tho degeneracy of the Intellectual
tvlll differ from that or the iinlntclll
gent, but, In the end, the lack of nil
liibtmeiit will lesult In both mental
and physical deterioration.
The tendency for mental and pliy
ileal .activities to separate, to with
draw from ench other like repell.iut
poles, may seem to ho natural, but It
Is not really so.
It Is thu lesult of acquired liiiblt,
duo to disuse or abuse of normal func
tions, to artificial living, and to faults
In our social system."

Twenty-eight years ago when Jack
1oiulou was a lad of seven jcars of
nge In San Francisco, I wroto "Capl

largely copied In the labor papers In
defense of labor against the wrong
exploitation uf capilul, and Mr. Uin-ilon's-stnr
had tcarccly ilson when lie
wrote mo n letter.
In fact, we havo had our arguments
and only a short white ago Mrs. Lon
don told me that Jack had decided to
withdraw from active paitlcipiitlou in
thu socialistic movement.
So, evidently he has modified his op
inions, too, and cannot bo called u
