If we could handle all our business at one terminal It would very much reduce our expenses. Our pier rentals and charges, not includ ing labor and cost of operation, are In e.xccfls of one million dollars per annum. These steamboat lines do not In them selves pay. They can only be Justified In connection with a business like the railroad's, which they can help, and which can relieve Its congestion through, them.
