Three years out of every four the
attractions of Washington bring the
United States Potters’ Association
for an annual convention, and
with the delegates comes t'harles F.
<Joodwin, their secretary, who is stop
ping at the New Willard. When
asked what brings the association to
Washington for piaclically every
convention Mr. Goodwin threw up his
hands and said: "Because we like it.
''an you tell me any one who does
not like this city. 1 find that every
body likes it, including all ns potters,
and that is why we come back so
often,” he declared with a wave of
the hand that indicated that was the
only reason necessary.
Some have collected all sorts of
china and pottery, and many of the
"china fans” have gone to much trou- •
ble to get the products of the work- j
men of Kngland. France and Ger
many. But Mr. Goodwin is a firm be
liever in tile produets of the Industry
in the U. S. A.
“They are just as good and some
times better. Why not far from
you. in Trenton. X. J.. tile linest china
in tile world is made, and from that
city tin beautiful sets in the White
House are supplied," declared Mr. |
Goodwin.
The association of which Mr. Good- ;
win is an official represents 17.000!
persons who are engaged in the pot- i
tery industry in this tountry, and in<
speaking ot the association's dealing)
with tne workmen in the trade Mr. j
Goodwin enthusiastnAi 11. v stood up for i
“collective bargaining. ' “We have [
employed this method of dealing with ;
• •nr labor for nearly thirty years with :
great success and we feel that it is i
tile right way." he declared, pointing*
out that there had only been one* big j
strike in the industry, that in IS'.M.j
and a small one for two months last j
y-ar. j
Mr. Goodwin was busy preparing fori
the opening sessions this afternoon j
of the association's forty-ninth an- j
iinai meeting at the Wiliard. The!
convention will be here for three days '
and Mr. Goodwin is scheduled to ad- j
dress the convention on the history of ,
the association.

The railroads will have to he look- j
lug to their laurels as the country's j
freight carriers, for if the members I
of the Itlyers and Harbors Congress |
carry through their intended program I
there will lie waterway connections I
from every village and hamlet j
east of the Mississippi river connect- j

for the purpose of all'tiding the j
Rivers and Harbors Congress, which!
is to open its sessions tomorrow.
A bright future tor tin- waterways
of the t ountry is predicted by Mr. (
Barrett, who declared that in three j
years' time ii w ill be possible for j
freight in travel by waterway fntmi i
New Orleans to Chicago byway of
the Mississippi. Illinois and lies !
Plaines river and the Chicago Saui- j
i ary canal.
"The waterways will soon be the !
carriers of all the heavy freight, j
such as coal. iron, etc., if our plans !
cot through,” declared Mr. Barrett, i
who stated that the railroads of the j
country had not kept pace with the '
moving industry of the country. .So j
enthusiastic is Mr. Barrett over the I
prospects that ids company is spend
ing several hundred thousand doi- I

give me a definite answer but I hope
to persuade him to come to Atlanta,’*
declared Mr. Edwards, who stopped
the slow" rocking of his chair to ex
plain with all his ardour the enor
mity of the undertaking by the
People of the south.
“This is a stupendous thing; the
pyramids are nothing compared to
this memorial, which consists of a
quarter of a mile of gigantic statu
ary representing an entire army on
the march. “Why Bee’s figure is
1«S feet all; think of it. the figure
of one man as high as a sixteen-story
bunding.” said Mr. Edwards
Nothing is too good for the cele
bration feel those who are connected
with it, and Mr. Edwards explained
that he was also going to Congress
and ask them to authorize a new
coin, to he struck In commemoration
ot the beginning of Hie memorial. A
half dollar will be the denomination
suggested.
The late President Harding was
always keen on an undertaking that
would preserve the memory of men
great in the history of America, and
he was heartily in favor of the .Slone
mountain project, according to Mr.
Edwards, who explained that the late
President suggested that a park t!00
feel wide be laid from Oglethorpe
University to the foot of the memo
rial, a distance of three miles. “Pres
ident Harding suggested." declared
Mr. Edwards, “that a statue of Bin
eoln and Davis be put at one end and
Grant and Lee at the other, while
down one side should be erected the
statues of all the Confederate gen
erals and on the opposite side the
statu* s of all the Union generals."
Mr. Harding then said call this "The
Avenue of the Union," declared Mr.
Edvv arils.
The visitor to Washington is a
well known author. One of his best
known works is “Aeneas Africanus,”
a story of the old-time negro. in
speaking of the migration of the col
ored people from Hi*- south, Mr. Ed
wards stated that prior to the be
ginning of the recent migration he

tion. and h« now lias one old cripple
