STUDYING W JTEBFKOXT Expert Discusses Problems in Waterway Transportation. , rnie lirst Impression one gets In studying port and termlaaj oondiUona In v, m York is the tre- Bjendoufl extent of the factors involved," said Syl vo=t<r Baxter, secretary of 'he ■ Met ropoliuin Improvements Commission, at tho Hotel Astor. TV commission of which Mr. Baxter is a mem ber is one- recently appointed by his state to study the question of extending tho commercial facilities of ih- jwrt of Boston and to m<tk<> recommendation of plans for Improvement. Th<: commission Is <ol ]r<-tir.^ data as to v.h.it is tx-ins <l<-ne by other cities In tl.is direction^ and it Is in this connection that Mr. Baxter lias been spending several days in ICew York looking over the dtjTs facilities for handling domestic anil foreign commerce. "One of the serious problems ttiat you have to deal with In New York." said Mr. Baxt.-r, "Is the congestion In th< .-tr.i ts along the waterfront, due t<» Imn-MinK all poods between the. piers and points in Manhattan by trucks. Sine" I have been here I have beard \ar;ous suggestions for obviating this difficulty, or..- of them Is for a innrKir.al railway on elevated tracks which could handle goods be twren piers and froitdit stations. It seems tO me that little practical relief could come from such .-i plan, inasmuch .as it would b<- necessary to have extensive storage y;u-.ls for cars in order to effect any considerable saving of time or cost, and there seoins to be no room on the island of Manhattan for such yards. "Another Idea that I have heard advanced is that the congestion along the waterfront might be do creased by trolley freight lines connecting with tho piers and passing under the marginal street at frequent Intervals to reach distributing stations so placed as to serve the convenience of the greatest number of shippers. While this undoubtedly would lessen th. tangle of trucks that now results in so nmcb delay along West street, it would Involve an additional handling of practically all good.s, and it is the cost of handling ruthcr than the cost of transportation that affects most seriously tho ex pense of transacting the business of a port city. "In the Held of handling low cost and bulk car goes and freights I found that. In one case at least, you have developed freight handling facili ties on a scale, and with a decree of economy that afford lessons of value to other port cities. 1 re fer to the equipment of your great Bush Terminal, in which the. various functions of a terminal in its proper sensft axo brought Into such clow? con nection that the expenditure of time and the cost j of Ivir.dlins goo Is are both reduced to the econom- j leal minimum. •'There may be said to be three stages In the j development of a terminal as it has progressed in I the various commercial centres. The first Is the . provision at piers at which Ships may dock, with out regard to what disposition Is to be mad. of a j cargo after it is discharged That is the stage j represented by many of your piers in New York, j The second is reached with tho addition .if ware- j houses ln close uroxlmity to piers, where goods ; nay bo stored while awaiting shipment or con sumption. That Is represented by the older de velopment on the Brooklyn shore. The third stage j 1? the uniting of piers with warehouses or land : transportation agencies by railway lines, which ■ enables goods to be shipped to or from tho yes- I eel's f=ide in cars without rehandling. To these, however, a fourth stage, has been added in the case of the- Bush plant by the provision of j factory bulMingE In connection with the piers and i warehouses, which has the effect of placing the i manufacturer and wholesaler ln direct connection with both his raw product and the market for his ■ finished goods, r,o matter how widely separated j the two may be. ar.d eliminates the tedious and ] costly process of trucking. ■'Nowhere rise in tho world, so far as my ■ \ perience goes, and that includes the leading for eign ports as we.l as those of this country, has this concentration of related functions been worked '•i!* to this extent The result is that for such volume of business as this terminal can handle New York has facilities such as are equalled by no other port in the world for handling the kind . Of business carried by lines of freighters nnd j tr::™.;^." FIGHT OVER TOMBSTONES. Small Graveyard Upholster* Pitted Against MaR Order Trust. To combat the inroads made in their business Iby two big mail order houses in the "West, a move ment Is under way to form a league of the monu ment dealers In the smaller cities and villages throughout the country. Just what action will be taken after the leap] is formed Is a matter of pome doubt araons the promoters, i.., they are certain they can hit upon an Idea which will ef fectually stop the ordering of tombstones by mall from illustrations printed In the catalogues that offer a monument for $13 99. Already snail dealers have an understanding that they will not erect mail order tombstone* for the "Western houses do not contract to place the head ptom-.= in th 3 graveyard, their responsibility ceas in? when the marble, or granite has been placed in a freight car at the quarries. It is more or ess of a difficult undertaking to set a monument in place, and many people have round this out •when their homo dealer, who perhaps had bid for t-e job. under the existing understanding derlin.-d to erect the work in the cemetery. Unless on* i«ows jast how to do It. there is great danger of chipping the atone or base when it Is set in position, and the novice, too. does not have th» ■— — ** tools. Efforts have been made In a systematic manner to enlighten prospective, buyers that a mall order monument Is almost a whim elephant on their hands with. 4? tho services of an experienced setter to put lt ft! position. It has been suggested that the most feasible way to. overcome the competition of the catalogue people Is to fro direct to the quarries with th. proposition that if the sale of tombstones Is continued to the MM purchasers Jobbers and the dealers who buy direct will transfer their patronage to other manu facturers. It Is a Question whether this would bo a combination in restraint of trade, which tho government does not countenance, but tombstone men believe that lt trill be possible When they got right down to business to devise some scheme to get around tho law and also earn- out the ob ject of the present cru6ude. Under ti.« direction of dm of the largest Job ben in this city, arrangements are being made" Ear the holding of a convention that the conditions of the trade may bo discussed and pome working plan agreed upon to protect the smaller dealers For apparent reasons, the men interested In the movement, which will be national in scope not care to have their names nubliphed. but they assert their earnestness In the effort and their belief in a successful Issue. They po i nt to the fact that not a dealer In the country has yet offered objection to the formation of a 1« .ague and that, on the other hand, all have expressed a willingness to enroll and do their share It Is expected that the call for this meeting rffl be cent out soon. It may be held In Chicago" tha home of the biggest mail order houses iii the country. ENGINE HORSES SLIDE TO FIRE. Three Down in a Heap on Wet Broadway Asphalt— Dragged a Block.
