But a Remarkable Increase in Busi
f m
ness Since 1907 Is Shown
by Reports.
The decrease in th$ shipment of sugar
from the Hawaian Islands to the east
? Alt of the United States was respon
sible for the decrease of the traffic on
the railroad across the Isthmus of Pan
ama. This traffic decreased approxi
mately flo.uOO.OOO during the fiscal year
1913. according to figures made public
by the Department of Commerce today.
During the current fiscal year the traf
fic totaled $132,000,000, compared with
*1*1.000.000 in 1912 and $103,000,000 in
l'.fll. The westbound traffic, however, it
Ik pointed out, was $5,000,000 greater than
that In the same period of 1912.
Of the total amount of traffic passing
o^er the Ithmuses of Panama and Te
hdantepec during the current fiscal
3ear $75,000^)0 worth passed from the
?astern const to the w?stfrn coast of
th?* I'nited States and Hawaii, and $12,
worth to foreign countries:
while $39,(KjO^OOO worth of products of
the Pacific coast and Hawaii moved east
ward to the Atlantic and gulf ports of
the United States and $3,500,000 to for
eign countries.
The remarkable growth in this trans
Isthmian traffic, says a report from the
Department of Commerce, has occurred
chiefly since the opening of the Tehuan
tepec railroad January 1, 1907. The traf
fic via Panama alone was in 19U8 but
90.000,000 in value. * I Miring the first
year's operation of the Tehuantepec
railroad the combined traffic of the two
railroads was $21,000,000: in 1908 $42,
000,000: and so on. Increasing until It
reached $141,000,000 in 1912.
The larger growth, it Is declared, has
b?n in the westbound movement. Sugar,
it is declared, forms one-half of the
eastbound traffic, while Iron and steel
manufactures form about one-fourth of
the westbound traffic, cotton manufac
turers one-sixth and # miscellaneous man
ufactures a large proportion of the re

Executive Order to Aid Samuel Myer
to Reinstatement.
After having been out of the govern
ment service for nearly sixteen years.
Samuel Myer. formerly employed in the
government printing office, is to be re
instated In a good position, the way for
this action having been paved by an
executive order Issued today.
Mr. Myer was removed November 13,
1*97, for reasons which do not appear In
the records of the case. In May, 1901,
the civil service commission Issued a cer
tificate for his reinstatement in the print
ing office, with a view to his transfer to
the Treasury Department. The reinstate
ment and transfer, however, were never
The rule in such cases provides for re
instatement within one year from the
date of the civil service commission's
ruling. The President's order in this
case, however, with the concurrence of
the commission and the public printer,
waives the one-year rule.

Eleven Into Ten No Times and
Nary Over for Commerce
Board of Trade Team Downs Husky
Rivals, Latter "Taking
the Count."
"A Comedy of Errors" was presented
before a "large and appreciative au
dience yesterday afternoon at the
American Uayue Base Ball Park. The
cast numbered eighteen. The stage di
rectors were W. A. Rogers and Walter
Quy, and the prompters were "Shorty"
Hughes and Joe Handiboe. The pro
duction was divided into nine acts.
There were many seines.
At the conclusion of the spectacle
"Stage Director" Rogers was "drag
ged before the curtain" and presented
with a silver loving cup by Woodbury
Blair, president of the Emergency Hos
pital. for the benefit of fcrhlch the pro
duction was given.
"Why are they giving him that cupT"
asked one of the spectators.
"Oh, he's the captain of the Board of
Trade team, which won the game,"
answered one of the ushers.
*?? <*on *. mean to say that what I
2?!. t'n w:itne8sln* for the past three
i"a8, ^een, a base bail same, do
^ exclaimed the startled spectator.
T*1? uaher replied that he had been
T*.8 a *ame and felt certain
hA hls '"formant had inside tnforma
H matt?>' and knew what he
was talking about. He assured the
spectator that there had been a game
between the teams of the Board of
Trade and Chamber of Commerce and
that the former had won by a score
or 11 to 10. The Chamber of Com
merce team had come out victorious,
he said, from the standpoint of errors
having had fourteen chalked up to its
credit. The Board of Trade had a
measly eight.
The spectator remembered that
what he had been witnessing had
started like a base ball game, after
all. Secretary Bryan of the State De
partment had thrown the first ball
from where he sat in a box to Pitcher
Leverton of the Chamber of Commerce
nine, who stood nearly ten feet away.
The spectator then remembered that at
this point Mr. "Shorty" Hughes had
shouted "Play ball."
The echo of "Shorty's" stentorian
tones had not died out before the fun
started. The Board of Traders were
first at the bat. Five men managed
to encircle the bases without being
called out during the first half of the
first inning. Then the Chamber of
Commerce team came to bat and the
very first ball that Roy Brooks pitched
"winged" Cohn, the chamber's center
fielder, and he "walked." Three runs
? were scored by the chamber.
Double Plays Recorded.
Things went along quite smoothly
then for a while, and, although they
did not realize what they were doing,
both teams managed to pull off a dou
ble play. When the score showed the
Board of Trade to be three runs ahead
of the Chamber of Commerce something
happened. Kidwell, one the best
amateur pitchers in Washington,
mounted the mound for the* Chamber.
"Gee, he's some pitcher Why didn't
they start the game with him?" every
one asked.
Then the wise ones explained that an
agreement had been reached by Capt.
Rogers and Capt. Guy to the effect
that Kidwell was not to enter the
game until the Board was three runs
ahead of the Chamber. Pitcher Lever
ton was transferred to first base.
Brooks, pitcher for the Board of
Traders, began to weaken in the fifth
and Conner was ordered to relieve him.
Dick managed to make a fair showing
and finished the game as a hero.
Toward the close of the contest, at
a time when the game was quite unin
teresting. the spectators broke forth
with a mighty roar. The Marine Band,
which had been telling with mournful
notes how lonesome a certain pine tree
was. gave vent to screeches that were
blood-curdling. Everybody snouted and
waved his hat in the air. The ball pla.v?
ers stood aghast, not knowing the
cause of all the commotion. Some time
elapsed before they discovered the
cause. On the big score board in right
field the following result had been
posted: "Washington. 7; Boston, 4,"
and no wonder everybody was happy.

Orders Transfer of T. E. Stewart Be
cause of Efficiency.
Thomas R. Stewart's high record for
efficiency as a messenger boy In the De
partment of Commerce has caused the
President to issue an executive order
waiving the rule of the civil service com
mission which prohibits the transfer or
promotion of messenger boy* to positions
in the apportioned classified service. Stew
art, who was appointed a messenger
January 24. 1910, will be transferred to
the apportioned service In the position
of assistant messenger in the office of
the Secretary of Commerce.
The waiving of the rule against such
promotions was npon the recommenda

Poundmaster Recommends
Purchase of Motor Vehicle
to Facilitate Captures. .
Hard times are in store for the stray
dog. Poundmaster Emil Kuhn has de
cided to recommend to the Commission
ers the purchase of a motor vehicle to
be used in running down canines that
venture forth without muzzles or li
cense tags.
Although 3,617 dogs were impounded
during the fiscal year just closed. Mr.
Kuhn believes that the number would
have been larger if his department had
been given the services of an auto
mo"bile. He points out that with means
of quick transportation it will be pos
sible for his men to capture nearly
every stray dog. whereas, with only
a horse and wagon to run down the
animals, escapes are frequent.
Big Business Past Year.
The last twelve months are numbered
among the busiest the pound has ever
experienced. Of the 3.617 dogs im
pounded, 388 were redeemed. 76 sold
and 29 returned, while 3.113 were
During the same period 6,132 cats
were collected and destroyed. Collec
tions of felines on request, in accord
ance with an order adopted a year ago
by the Commissioners, greatly increased
the work of the pound, anJ in fact,
taxed the facilities of the institution
to the limit, as cats were collected from j
every section of the District.
