POOR BRANCH LINE SERVICE.
George J. Reiley in Times-Democrat:
It was my ill fortune a few days
ago to make a trip from Clinton, La.,
to Baton Rouge, a distance of thirty
two miles, on one of the Yazoo and
Mississippi Valley trains, of which
the officials boast of giving the town
good service. We left Clinton at the
regular hour; viz.: 11:20 a. m., and
arrived in Baton Rouge that night
at 11 p. m., and had it not been for
the sixteen-hour law, which prohibits
the working of railroad crews over
sixteen hours I do not believe we
would have reached Baton Rouge be
fore daylight the next day.
Again, I left Baton Rouge on the
same train, which is known as the
Clinton local No. 6, at 7:40 a. m.; we
should have reached Clinton at 10:30,
but reached this place at 12 m., so
late that no switching could be done,
as the train is scheduled to leave
Clinton at 11:20 a. m. Again, 'he
shippers of lumber, seed, etc., were
disappointed by not having cars plac
ed and had the expense of loading
doubled, as the crews have to be
kept under pay in order to hold them
From what I saw, the entire trouble
is expecting this train to do much
more work than is possible. As the
season for harvesting the cane crop
is at hand, and as there are large
quantities being shipped on this line,
between Baton Rouge and Ethel, it
requires all of the time allotted to
this train to handle the cane situa
tion. All else must go undone or ex
tra time given, which is delightful for
the passengers. May I ask, if from
11:20 a. m. to 11 p. m., and from
7:40 a. m. to 12 noon for passengers
to travel a distance of thirty-two
miles is good service, and should not
the people of Clinton rejoice over the 1
fact that we are soon to have anoth
er road and should put forth every
effort to secure same as speedily as
THE RICHEST NATION.
The little Republic of Panama
claims the honor. Panama has no
debt. While other nations count
their profits at so much per head of
population, Panama counts her pro
fits that way. After paying her nec
essary expenses she actually has a
profit of $12 a year for each tinhabi
tant. There is no army or navy tr,
keep up and the United States is
bound to protect Panama's independ
ence. To add to Panama's prosperi
ty, the United States must begin
next February to pay $250,000 a year
forever as rent for the canal strip.
