key to thc door ot the vast foreign
trade I? greater Inland navigation, ac
cording John H. Bernard, manager of
the Inland navigation bureau of New
York, speaking before tho Southern
congress here today. - He pointed out
that the In i ted States has the great
est system of Inland water routes m
tho - world. " a system that is practi
cally idle because of the Indifference
of the public and the legal decisions
and r?gulation? of the government
"Inland water routes are capable of
giving the United States a method of
transportation that la more ancient
and of a larger capacity than ts now
available at a cost from one-third to
one-fourth of the present railroad
cost," Bernard declared.
To reduce the coat Of construction
by the United States of -American
waterways and aa the beat method of
bringing about a great economy in
transportation be urged a system of
subsidies for the United States mer
chant marine, improvement of rivers
and harbors, forbidding of rall' rates
to meet water competition, construe
tlon of river terminals with belt rail
ways th rougit cooperation of the fed
eral-mid State governments and mu
nlclpalities an? a revision, of the
American navigation laws. He recom
mended that the Improvement of the
rivera and harbors be tn charge of a
special department of the United
States government with cabinet of
ficers at its head.

that with conditions bound to arise

of reciprocal trade arrangements

It is foolish." said he. "for us lo!
talk complacently of capturing Brit-.]
