WATER TRANSPORTATION URGED
WASHINGTON, December 5. Dur
ing tho course of the discussions before
the waters section of the conservation
commission today, it wag shown that
enormous saving could be made in the
freight expenditures of each year, if
the navigable streams were properly de
veloped. In the year 1900, the 'rail
roads carried 217,000,OQO,000 tons of
freight at an average cost of .77 cents.
If one-fifth of the freight shipped each
ycar could be transported by water, it
would result in a saving to the producer
and shipper pb about $250,000,000.
The main topic in connection with
tho waters-discussed. today, was tho wa
tor Bupply and subsidiary to this nav
igation in tho cast and irrigation iq

length. The theoretical strength of tho
water power of the country was esti

MANY IMPORTANT MEASURES COVERED
BY RINGING RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED
PITTSBURG, December 5. When
tho fourth and Inst, day's tcssion of the
eleventh annual convention of the
American mining congress opened here
today, it was apparent that unfinished
business would bo cleaned up by this
afternoon, and that the meeting, which
is pronounced the most successful in the
life of the organization, would adjourn.
A' telegram from President-elect Taft
was read before the convention this
morning. Following is tho message:
"I am glad of an opportunity to' ex
press my interest in the important work
which tho American mining congre-s ?s
doing in behalf of the mining iin'.-xt--and
I desiro to encourage and co-o,ic
ato in this work in every possible way.
"The mining Industry of this conn
tty, which is second only to agriculture
in its contribution to national wealth,
which furnishes moro than 60 per cent
of the total freight traffic of the coun
try, and employs moro than a million
men in its difficult and dangerous tasks,
deserves all the assistance which this
government can render if.
Jo country is so rich in those re
sources which make for great and per
manent wealth as is the United States;
but this condition of affairs has helped
to develop a national habit of waste in
the use of our forests, our oils, minerals
and other resources. Fortunately, how !
ever, the public conscience of the coun- J
try is awakening to both tho loss of
life and wasto of materials in all our
industries, and w$ must see to it that
the moycinen' is guided wisely and car
ried forward t fu"-o. "
That thqj average nf.cp explosion is
not n mystcryj-'is. the 'opinion of fifty
miuo operators, including the chief
mine inspectors of Pennsylvania, West
Virginia, Ohio, Illinois and several oth
er coal mining states, who presented tho
following address to tho convention:
"Tho state mine inspectors present at
this meeting dejdre to assert their be
lief that tho causes of mine disasters
are for the most pari, known, and that
it will bo possible ,by the united ef
forts of all persons interested, to great
ly reduce the liabilities of explosions.
It would bo a grave error to allow a
statement made in this congress, that
