ZONA IGAJN WW E Greet Issue Now Before the People THE ARTERIES OF TRADE Movement For Bringing the Ocean to the Farmer and the Program Which Has Been Devised For Its Accomplishment. Washington, Aug. S. Now that the atmosphere has cleared with respect to the tariff, men interested in public affairs are awakening to the fact that a great, new governmental movement with a monstrous force back of it has come into existence and that the big issue that faces the American people in the immediate future is the im provement of the waterways. There has crystalized in the immediate past a sentiment that has long had a place in the conviction of the iieople to the effect that transportation facilities were inadequate to handle the grow ing business of the i-duntry, and just now there is taking sha)e a thing that will center the attention of the people for twenty years to tome, and beside which such enterprises as the Panama canal, which has been regarded as Herculean, sink into insignificance in comparison. All the waterways of the country are to be dug out within the next score of years, and the ocean is to be brought to the farmer. The primary indication to the effect that this thing is actually to be done lie"- in the lact that congress has ap-IH-;ited a ont C"oi:nNsioii of nine :-en ut v"-t "'iinTions of Kurope. w.i re a slmthir task has been accom plished. ;iad to bring- back a ""i-port as 'o me manner of it-! doing. This com mission was not instructed to rejmrt on the advisability of doing this thing, but to lay down, a plan for its accom plishment. Congress wants to know the manner of digging out the streams, having already made up its mind as to the advisability of it. The sec "lid great influence that Is Vic ing brought to bear upon the Imme diate setting about the task of actual accomplishment is that of the present administration. Mr. Taft has given repeated intimation of his intention to push inland waterways improvement above all the conservation measures that have found favor with the cople. Recently tie issued a statement to a Chicago magazine, in which he stated that he was in favor of the broad pol icy of conservation, but in tiiis he placed waterways above all else. Then he received an invitation from the Mississippi valley people, who are fa voring the project of improving the channel from the lakes to the Gulf, from Chicago to the mouth of the Mis sissippi. It asked that he attend the convention to be held in New Orleans in the early fall, and that he travel down the Father of YVaters from Mem phis on that occasion. Mr. Taft has h i epted the invitation. Then came the invitation of the At lantic Ij'-ep Waterways association, which has in mind the establishment ctf an inland water route from Boston to F.cauford, N. C, the biggest project in the nation next to the Mississippi. This invitation was for November 17-20 at Norfolk, and was likewise accepted, finally there came an invitation from the National llivers and Harbors con gress. Then finally there comes the offi cial endorsement of the government's regularly accreditee! representatives appointed for the purpose of making a report as to just what were the con ditions with reference to water trans portation. Herbert Knox Smith of the bureau of corporations, department of commerce and labor, has been at work for two years In an attempt to -H"l"l"l"l"l"l"l"8-K"l' 1"!

Krouskop's Five Points Grocery I INT nuiwMi 1 1 1 hii nn m m establish the facts as to Just what conditions existed as to water trans portation in this country. In his find ings, which have just been made pub lic, he says : "Our increasing commerce demands that our waterways be made an active part of our transportation system. Our inland rivers are not so now. Water ways themselves and their conditions must be improved that they shal har ry a share of the nation's traffic pro portioned to their real possibilities, and shall so supplement the rail system as to prevent the recurrence of disastrous traffic congestions. Under a general plan our inland waterways can be made much more of a commercial unit. They must be placed in such a posi tion that they can secure, even against rail competition, a far greater propor tion than now of the country's traffic. Itiver and canal traffic is now Insig nificant as compared with rail traffic. It is sufficient to say that terminal improvement is greatly needed and is entirely possible. "There has been very little coopera tion between the central and the local authorities. This has resulted In in evitable lack of uniformity and com prehensive plans and a lack of any proiMirtionate contribution from the localities benefited. Kuropean coun tries have in many cases distributed the cost of waterways improvement upon localities in some ration with the siecial benefits received. Such co operation is worthy of careful con sideration in any comprehensive plan of waterways improvement." In like manner the findings of the special investigation point In every finding to the necessity of action on the part of the central government. All those interested in the project that is destined to be the biggest un dertaking that this government has ever attempted are through this re port given authoritative and unbiased facts as to the actual status of the waterways. o THE KING INTERVENES IN SWEDISH STRIKE BUT APPARENTLY WITHOUT GOOD RESULT Tho Situation Promises to be Worse Today. Stockholm. Aug. 8. The tie up of business in this country ai a result u the sirike is w M-rious - that King Oustav has intervened in an endeavor to sarure a c unjeroml.ee.

L II General Improvement of Railway Traffic Conditions THE FIGURES FOR JUKE Increases Compared With the Volume of Trade For the Corresponding Monh of Last Year Observed in Nearly All Directions. Washington, Aug. 8. Improved con ditions in railway traffic and in the movements of coke and iron ore are characteristics of the June internal commerce rcort of the bureau of sta tistics of tho department of com merce and labor. The live stock, grain and provision movements show a de crease in volume compared with the figures of the corresponding month of last year, ami the extrme activity in building which characterized the re ports of the earlier months of the year shows some signs of abatement. Live stock receipts during the month at 7 interior primary markets. 2.!r,2.824 head, show a considerable decrease as compared with like figure for June. 1308 and l'JOT, 3.2.".8.5fil and 3.202.033 head. Smaller receipts are shown for nil classes of animals except calves. The decrease affects all Important centers with tho exception of Kansas City, which reorts larger arrivals of all classes of live stink except horses and mule. The total number of cirs usee' in Iruniling the inbound move ment dm ins tiie to-"" ' t , ..mi : ! ' ith j.- u- .i. 1 e, it cart reported for June. ll'OS and 1S"7. Live stock arrivals .'i the .wn cellars for the six month cudi.ig June totaled 19.081.725 head, compared with L'O.S.'fi, 3!3 and 20.o;:',242 head for the same period in laos and 1907. Tin; smaller total is due mainly to the smaller receipts of hogs and cattle. The re ceipts during the first half of the year at Chicago of hops alone, 4.47.5fiK head, were about li l-or cent below those reported for the first six months in r.lS. The calc ulated number of In bound live stock cars was 3a.r.l3 for the six-month tieriod of the current year, compared with 3Tr,!i02 and 371. r00 cars reported for the same period in iros and 1!07. A similar decline in the monthly re ceipts of live stock is shown for ihc four" principal Atlantic seaport cities, the June, 190:i. figures. 7."i,327 head, being over 0 lT cent below the June. 190H, figures. The main losses oc curred under the head of hogs and cattle, though even calves and sheep show smaller figures than a year ago The showing for the six-month period is even more unfavorable, the 1909 to tal, 4.H2.1S5 head, being about 7 per cent below the corresponding total in 190S. though the number of sheep re ceived for the six months was larger than a year ago. The June shipments of packing house products from Chicago, lsri.fiKS, 090 pounds, were; like-wise smaller than the June, 190S and 1907. figures of 204,823.30.1 and 194.089,1 1." pounds. The less favorable showing in the total is due to smaller shipments of fresh be-ef, canned and cured meats, and lard. Pickled beef and hides, on the; other hand, show a heavier outbound move ment than a year ago. Shipments for the first six months of the year, 1.018. 7S5.9.M) pounds, like-wise show a de cline as compared with the figures for the two earlier years; the losses being quit? marked in the case of fresh beef, canned meats, hides, and lard, while pickled beef, cured meats, and pork appear to huve been shipped In larger quantities than during the first hair of the preceding year. The east ward trunk-line movement of pro visions for the month. 69.822 ne t tons, as compared with June, 1908 and 1907. figures, shows an even heavier decline. The six months' figures for this move ment, 440,818 net tons, shows a 17 per cent decline from the 1908 total. Grain receipts in June at 15 leading Interior markets aggregated 43.423. 9rr bushels, compared wrth 4".,fi44.917 and 64.850,970 bushels reported for June. 1908 and 1907. Of the total receipts 6,551.372 bushels was wheat; 18.92. f.28 bushels corn; 13,583.494 bushels oats: 4,035,551 bushels barley; and 32B.910 bushels rye. The most marked decline Is seen In the monthly receipts of wheat, which were about one-third below the June. 190S. receipts, and less than one-half the June. 190R. receipts, and less than one-half the June. 1907. receipts. TI(C receipts for the month, of oats, barley, and rye, were some what larger than during June, 1908. drain receipts at the same market for the crop season, beginning with Sep tember 1, to the end of the month to taled 630,680.686 bushels, compared with 639.449.090 and 718.408,117 bushe-ls for the 1907-8 and 1906-7 seasons. The largest losses as compared with the 1907-8 receipts occurred under the head of corn and oats. The wheat re ceipts during the current season. 208.- 622.397 bushels, were about 26,000.000 bushels in excess of like receipts dur ing the 1907-8 season. The flour ship ments during June from 13 important INTERNA II milling points, 3,030,368 barrels,' com pare favorably with the analogous for Jane, 1908, 2,831.3:' barrels, though falling short of the June, 1907, figures of 3.192.470 barrels, I The six months' flour shipments fronj the same points, 18,061.460 barrels, exceeded like ship ments for the same ieriod during the two previous years. ' Grain and flour receipts during June at the four leading Atlantic seaports totaled 8,951.111 bushels, compared with 11,375.318 and 16.868,093 bushels recorded for June, 1908 and 1907. The losses are mainly accounted for by the partial check of the export movement vaused by the prevailing high prices, especially of wheat. The June receipts of wheat at these markets were 1, 494.588 bushels, compared with 2.772, 547 bushels reported for June, 1908. The flour receipts were 870,248 barrels, compared with -1,061.102 barrels re ported during June of the previous year. Similar decreases appear under tho head of other bread-stuffs. The six months' figures, 6S.3S1.099 bushels, show an 18 nnd 43 per cent loss as compared with analogous 1908 and 1907 figures. Coastwise receipts of southern pine lumber at ew York. 49.115,066 feet, ns well as the total lumber receipts at Boston. 37.600.352 feet, show the larg est monthly figures for the season, and by far exceed the Juno, 1908, figures. The June lake shipments of lumber. 151.347 M. feet, were almost 40 !er cent in excess of the June, 1908, fig ures. The monthly receipts of redwood at California points, 29,48991 feet. were over 20 per cent In excess of the corresponding 1908 total. Pine and fir arrivals during the month at Califor nia points, 117,597.264 feet, were about one-third In excess of the correspond ing 1908 figures. June shipments of pine lumber from the Mississippi and Wisconsin valleys, 88.955,988 feet, fell short of the May figures and were even Jl per cent Ih'Iow those reported for June, 1908. Smaller shipments are also shown for pine lumber from Virginia and the Carolinas; the June, 1909, figures. 19.203.123 feet, being about 6.000,000 feet ;clow those re ported the year befo;.

The authraidto shipments for the first six months of the year, 31.951.730 gross tins. we-re lower than the six months' totals for the two pre ceding years. The pig-iron output during the month, 1.929.SS4 gross tons, was darger than for any month since October, 1907. notwith standing the fact that several of the merchant furnace-s show a reduced output. The improvement in the iron trade Is seen best from the fact that the monthly shipments of iron ore from Lake Suoe-rior anil Lake Michi gan points, 5,250,67 gross tons, wecr more than double the shipments re orted for June of last year. The monthly wool receipts at Bos ton. 47,373.365 pounds, were almost double the Juni, 190S, receipts, both the domestic and fore-ign wools shar ing in the increase.. Shipments of wool during the month, 16.L'Ot.487 Hiunds. were below those reporteel for June, 1908.

General traffic activity on the rail roads during June, as shown by the number of cars handled by 33 rar-servie-e associations and demurrage bureaus. 2,514.751 cars, shows a slight improvement as compared with the May results.

KEUATION ENTERPRISE Marinette Mesa to Be a Fam ous Fruit Section DAVIE AND ASSDCIATES Have Well Under Way One of the Largest and Most Promising Projects in These Parts A New Fruit Growing Center. It helps a town amazingly to have a few live ones in it a few men who not only have an inclination to do things and the perception to conceive them, but who have the resources or the genius for carrying them to a suc cessful issue. What follows Is the story of the adding of alsiut 7000 acres to the irrigable are a of this valley, the construc tion of an irrigation system by private enterprise, separate and apart from anything now in operation, and the building of a new town tributary to Phoenix. The moving spirit is K. I". Davie, whose operations are financ eel by his immediate associates, and the project is not me rely a driam yet to be worked out, but has been under way since February, so quietly that few people have heard about It. Those who have kept the-ir ears to the ground have known for a long time that Mr. liavie was busy, that he was hatching something, but only those concerned have had knowledge of its magnitude or Importance, for the rea son that success to this time d ponded more upon nutlon than upon publicity, but now tb-t succ is assured there :x no leu r" -d o. -e--. The pro;oxtlni'w lo."h is Marinette, ; n the Si: t.- ' p . ''r- i-i. 1 twet-n the Agua Friu river anl idew river, which streams unite a couple of miles south f the railroad. Tho town site Is two and one-half miles beyond Peoria and two and a half miles this side of the Santa Fe water tank at Agua Friu and a little le-ss than nineteen miles north west of Phoenix. Accurately describ ed, the townsite covers 200 acres n-ar the cente r of section 17, town ship 3 north, range 1 cast of the G. & S. R. B. & M-, and it is already platted into lots 5O.140 feet in size and a good well has bee-n sunk near tho railroad track to a depth of 82 feet. Water was found at 6S feet, but sinking con- inued to 82 feet that the supply might be Inexhaustible and at that depth the rush of water drove the men out. The well had a pump capable of handling pioo gallons per day when work was stopped and the pump could make no impression on the water below its nor mal level. The well is 5x5 anil is tim bered. The town now consists of two fine bungalows made out of mesepjite brush and wagon -sheets, but that Is a j"ko. The maps for the townsite have not yet bii'ii filed, though they are ready for fi ing. but there is no burr-, for the lots are not yet for sale. and there is no Intention of starting" a town until there is something to sup Mirt it. That, however, is worrying nobody, for the rest of the project is i certain insurance that the town will soon become what it is designed to be. i fruit town, an ideal residence place end us near a "spotless" town as one can conceive where 1- is founded anu maintained on industrial development and is not merely a rich man's play thing. Marinette is not a new name. A w histling post and a sign board were erecteil by the railroad company when tho railroad was built, and it has ever since hail a place on the detail map of the company, but that is all it has had, tho mere name. It has remained for Mr. Ituvie to inject into it the breath of life. It has made the initial kick, and ere long will come entirely out of the tram . The Marinette Town company owns 00 acres. Its future depends on the operations of the Marinette Land and Canal company, which is composed of a small coterie of men who are inti mately associated and have not yet announced the organization of the com pany anil, its official roster, but who are content to le-t Mr. Davie handle the strings until tho project is a little fur ther advanced. A part of these men represent 4000 acres of titled land around and south of Marinette, owned by the Southwestern Sugar and Lund company, bougflt with the Glcndule factory and proved up many years ago, when supplied with water by the Ari zona canal. The remainder of the acre-age Is land filed upon June 3 in the land office by the same and other gentlemen co-operating with Mr. Da vie In the Marinette Land and Canal company. This land lies north and et of the Marinette town site and the holdings described -embrace all the land suitable for irrigation by the pro posed Marinette eunal, which runs down the high line on the mrsa be tween the mountains on the north, the Agua Fria and Xew rivers on the west and east, respectively, and their junc tion on the south. This section is to be know n as the Marinette mesa, and is as distinct from what is now spoken of as the Salt River valley and the Salt river irrigation project, as is Buckeye or Paradise valley, though, like both of them, it is a part and parcel of tho greater valley of the Salt and Gila river system. One might say that geographically speaking it is a part of the Salt River valley, but topographic ally and commercially speaking it is a little province in itself. The canal company is to be organ ized and operated on a strictly mutual basis, and will furnish water only to lands owned by its members. Tho Land and water rights cannot be sepa rated. The canal heads in tho Agua Fria river due north of Marinette at licture rocks, the south point of Cal derwood butte, two and one-half miles west of the Relief niine, where the Agua Friu breaks from the mountains to the mesa. Thenco it runs south in a general direction to the town of Ma rinette, passing it about a quarter of a mile to the east and continuing a couple of miles further until its waste way empties Into New river. So near ly north and south does the canal line run that its wasteway is less than a mile further east than its heaeigate, and the projected "Davie" boulevard, running due north along the section line west of the townsite to the canal head, is most of the way near the canal bank and never more than half a mile from it. Five miles below the canal head and four miles north of Marinette a lateral branch runs almost due east from the main canal to New river, into which its waste gates empty, about five miles above the waste gates of the main canal. This lateral branch will supply water to about 3000 acres of the land taken up by recent filings, and which land is the area certain critics accuseel the Santa Fe of trying to grab, arriv ing at that conclusion through the fact that representatives of the Santa Fe filed the scrip for Mr. Davie and as sociates. This, however, was not the tract on which the Santa Fe repre sentatives filed the larger part of their scrip, resulting In a controversy (Continued in Page Four) OF DELEGATES TO SPOKANE THE NEED OF A NEW CONSTITU TION FELT Tho Fight for the Next Location Becoming Active.
