George V. TioKoy, naval architect
of San Francisco, was one of the
principal tpoakers before the congress
and devoted his remarks to "the res
toration of the foreign shipping trade
of tho Fnltod States."
'f the two methods proposed for
the restoration of American shipping
in the foreign carrying trade, one the
levying of discriminating charges
against foreign ships and their cargo
and onti ring American ports, the
other government aid to the ship
owner in the foreign trade. Mr.
Dickey said the distinction is simply
ore of method, with no difference in
the result or the final settb ment of
tho cost i f obtaining it. In either
caw, the T eople would have to pay.
"Neveri theless," he said, "I believe
it is beins more and more convincing
every day that a large foreign com

all that means must be made possible
by such aid as the government can
give and liberal enough to insure suc

and it is nearer than most of us think,
we will need, and must have inter
national merchants to sell for us in

arrange our credits with those who

MAIL CATCHING DEVICE
IS BADLY WANTED
PoMoffice Department Could I so Ap

Washington, Aug. 20. For more
than 25 years the postofflce depart
ment has been endeavoring to secure
a device whlih would reduce to a
minimum the Injury to persons anil
property incident to the exchange of
malls with moving trains. Advertise
ments for bids for devices of that
character have been sent out from
tune to time, and a gnat deal of time
and money have been ixpended In
examining und testing the devices sub
mitted under such advertisements. As
the result of the last effort of the
department In that line, a catching
and delivering device submitted by F.
II. Bur, of Atlantic, Iowa, is being
tested on the Chicago, Cock Island
and .Pacific railway between Daven
port anil Council Bluffs. This device
has been In operation on train 7 west
bound at all of the catcher stations
between Davenport and I)is Mo'nes
for several mouths, and arrangements
have been made to place It on cars In
other trains both east and west bound '
to give it a more thorough trial.
So far II has worked satisfactorily,
but it tun hardly be said that U has
been subjected to all of the condition
tnat attend the cat' hlng and deliver
ing of mulls from moving trains, and
therefore the department is not el
prepartd to give it formal approval.
The nuestl oi of a safe delivery of
mails Is one that interests railroad
companies full) as much as it does th
department, und it is believed that
railroad officials will co-operate with
the department in this matter. No
matter how careful postal clerks may
be. it is Impossible to previ lit occa
