petition. Communities Hot Active
Referring to criticisms upon the de
lay of congress In the development of
water routes, the commission points to
the fact that the use of improved chan
nels in many instances has not been
commensuratte with the expense in
curred, due to a lack of progressiveness
in providing suitable freight carrying
facilities and to failure to provide mod-

sion insists, without cooperation of com-
munities and business interests
The commission is unwilling to rcom
ment such a change as the creation of a
board to decide upon the feasibility of
propositions for expenditure on rivers
and harbors, and pays high tribute to
the work of the army engineer corps. It
advises that, "without a careful and un
biased examination of proposed v im
provements of the nature tow required
by statute, no project should be adopt
ed by congress," and recommends, 5"that
hereafter the general policy be adopt- J
ed of providing for the early comple
tlon of any and all projects undertaken
and that only such numbers ofjprojects
should be commenced as will benjtppro
priated for and completed withlnit rea
In this way, It says, definite results
can be relied upon, plans can be made
forVutlllzing streams improved and ex
penses largely reduced. Careful pro
vission should also be made for main

In the general policy of improving
streams in waterway systems, the com
mission advises thajfthe main stream be
improved first ana raised to an ade
quate stage of efficiency before its
tributaries; 4hat preference be given '
lower portions of the stream and that j
improvement uroceed as a rule from the I
mouth up. -
The most striking instance cited of de-
crease in water borne traffic Is that of j
I the Erie canal, though the commission
regards as, Quite as strlkingi" the de
crease in Traffic on the Mississippi and
"In 18S0 this canal carried between
Buffalo and New York," the report says,
"4,608,651 tons, or 18 percent of the to
tal traffic while In 1906 (the latest year
for -which statistics are available) the
canal carried ,only 2,385,491 tons, or 3
percent of the total traffic."
The report says, on the other hand,
Thousands of copies of the El Paso Annual Keview Edition are being mailed
to other cities. It gives a most comprehensive summary of the growth and
development of El Paso. In no other way can you give your friends so much
reliable information regarding El Paso and the Southwest.
A Record and a Prophecy
The Herald's big skyscraper edition is not only a record of what is hap
pening in El. Paso now and what has happened in the past; but it demonstrates
what is in store for the future. El Paso is growing so fast and developing so
astoundingly that none can forecast the future, but the record of progress as
shown today in this great edition is one that cannot but put confidence into th
most lagging mind and build roseate pictures for the optimistic.
Prosperity on a Sound Basis
The outlook was never brighter for a city than it is now for El Paso: All
business institutions are on a stable footing, and the trade outlook and farm
ing, cattle and mining prospects are splendid. El Paso's location geographi
cally places it in a most favored position, such as but few cities in America
can boast, and the entire region surrounding and tributary to the city is just
awakening to its real value and worth.
Each Copy Will be a Missionary " .
' One dollar pays for 15 copies of the Skyscraper Edition, wrapped and
mailed to any lsit of addresses in the United States, Mexico or -Canada.

Among what are called artificial or
temporary advantages of railroads over
waterways are those that come from
power to acquire steamboat lirfes or to
agree for stifling water borne traffic,
refusal to pro rate with water lines and
better freight handling facilities.
Construction of artificial canals adapt
ed to the passage of sea going ships,
according to the commission, would be
profitable only where they would con
nect navigable waters near each other
between which large traffic would nat
urally exist, but for rapids or compara
tively narrow strips of land, as in the
case of Sault Ste. Marie, Welland and
Lachlne canals; or, where comparatively
short canals would have a very great
sailing distance, as in the cases' of the
Suez, Panama and Kaiser Wilhelm ca
nals; or, where canals from the sea
would extend to large cities near ms
coast where the large communities have
become creat freieht consumers as in
the case of the Manchester canal and the
Belgium system. The commission cites
many disadvantages of these canals but
makes no recommendations. 9
