Average Time Made on Steel High

Martin B. Madden.
Chicago, Sept. US. C;ui:il boats give
shippers better service than the mil
roads. The authority for this assertion is
Congressman Martin B. Maltl'ii, presl
dent of the Western Stone company,
who addressed a meeting of the trafii--bureaus
of the Illinois .Manufacturer.-.'
association at the Great Northern holel
yesterday afternoon. Not only did he
say It. hut he backed it up by declar
ing that the average time for a round
trip shipment of stone from his cpia--ries
at Joliet to Chicago was live days
by railroad, while canal boats, oper
ated on the drainage canal, make the
trip In one day.

This comparison was carried furtlie:
by Sidney P. Hostler, president of th-'
Hostler Coal and Coke company. who
pointed out that a high average freight
speed on American railroads is -7
miles a day. He. loo, longs for a re
turn of the days of the canal boa',
when freight was moved St an aver
age speed of live miles an hoar.
To make matters worse for the rail
roads, W. H. Drayton, representing
the American Car Service association,
fcaid the average speed of freight
trains in this country is slightly over
2:5 miles a day.
The purpose of the meeting was to
consider the question of demurrage
and at its close a resolution was adopt
ed calling for a thorough investigation
of this question. C. H. Smith, pies'
dent of the association, was by this
resolution instructed to appoint a com
mittee of three, which will eondii'-t
the investigation and report back t
Mml.leu ItrrrmlN III Hill.
It was Congressman Madden who
Introduced the reciprocal demurrage
bill at the last session of congress,
and his speech yesterday was practi
