URGING A DEEP WATERWAY
Declares Middle West Mutt Have Im

Chicago. Oct. 1C. The control of the
commerce of the Panama canal ami of
the whole Mississippi valley is the in
centive of a deep waterway which
Congressman Joecph E. Hansdcll of
"J.ouislana proposed to Chicago busi
ness interests last nisht in an address
at the Press club.
.. Incidentally the congressman ex
pressed the hope that the Niagara falls
commission will take no action tending
to interfere with the waterway project.
. "Chicago will benefit, more than any
other great city from the opening of a
deep waterway between the great lakes
ami the Gulf of Mexico," said the con
gressman. '"Chicago has magnificent
advantages as a distributing point,
which, however, can be developed to a
tremendously greater extent.
Hail 'rraaMrtat Ion "owl I. v.
"The distribution of commodities
which Chicago is making, at present
by rail throughout the Mississippi val
ley costs six times as much as the
fame distribution would cost by water.
The Illinois Central transports freight
between Chicago and New Orleans at
the rate of ; mills a ton a mile, where
as by water for the same distance the
rate would be 1 mill a ton.
"Don't you Chicago men sec the vast
possibilities of the commerce which
the Panama canal will develop? Are
you going to let the business interests
of the Atlantic states, with their wa
ter facilities, take possession of the
Panama canal commerce? Don't you
want to control that commerce? Well,
you never will get even your Just share
of.it if you are compelled to pay 0
mills, a ton a mile for freight which
your eastern competitors can transport
for one-sixth that rate."
