ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN. miDAT, DECEMBER 13. 100T. MERWAYSOOR HOST CRYING WANT United States Well Supplied With Natural Courses Development Needed. Washington. D. C Pec. IS. If there Is anything In. talk, the Ameri can people are In earnest about per fecting a system of Inland ' water ways and harbors in this country. Representatives of every state and city In the union will meet in Wash ington this r.cek to urge upon, con gress not only the Importance, but the actual necessity of getting down to a thorough and comprehensive scheme of Improving the waterway of the United States. The National River and Harbor Congress plays no favorites and backs no particular movement. To it the great Missis sippi river scheme heralded under the striking slogan, "Fourteen feet through the valley," looks the same as deepening Mochodoc Creek In Vir ginia, lis constitution prohibits it from looking with favor on one prop osition and with disfavor on another. . It seeks only the general Improve ment of the waterways of the coun try. Much Work Ahead. 'Prophets of hope see tne day when ships will load at Chicago and carry their cargoes directly Into the Inner most ports of Central Asia, and into ' the very heart of Europe. They see the time when American war vessels will ascend the Mississippi and man euver around Chicago as freely as they now go to New York. They are looking forward to the day - when ships may get their cargoes at Chi cago, call at New York after passing through the Erie canal and the Hud son and unload at Liverpool. In their virions they see Toledo connected with Cincinnati by a deep waterway, and regard the project of cutting the canal from Pittsburg to Lake Erie as all but ready for fulfillment. And to them there Is a possibility, if .not a probability, that some day there will be an all-American canal from New York to Puget Sound. Most of this seems like dreaming, but except for the latter undertaking they have all had the approval of congress in that It has voted appropriations for mak ing surveys to establish the feasi bility of the projects. And It Is prob able that long before the last of the living generation passes away all of these hopes will be realized. 18,000 Miles of Opportunity. The United States has the finest system of natural waterways on earth It has 18,000 miles of navigable in land waterways, with the great ocean highways on every side but one. This means 18,000 miles of opportunity to promote cheaj and advantageous communication between the various sections of the country. Already these waterways, with only 1500,000.000 spent on their Improvement, carry more freight than the 80.000 miles of perfected canals ' of continental Europe, which cost ten times as much. No less an authority than James J. Hill asserts that the busi ness of the country has increased 110 per cent in a single -ecade, while the traffic facilities for handling It have Increased only 10 per cent. Though statistics show that the cost of water transportation Is only one-sixth of the cost of railroad movement, the country has almost lost, tight of its waters in the building of' Its railroads Mr. Hill estimates that it would take 76,000 miles of new railroad to meet the traffic condition today, costing over 15,000,000,000. Waterways Always Favored. Far-seeing statesmen of the past were prompt to realize the import ance of internal water communica tion. Washington, himself, was the father of the idea of the canal from the Potomac to the Ohio. He also secured the charter for and was the nrt president of what afterward be came the Erie canal. England was opposed to waterway Improvement . In the colonies, in that It would tend to cement them together against the mother country. Madison urged a chanel for light draft war vessels from the Gulf of Mexico to Lake Michigan, thus being the father of the "fourteen feet through the val lsy" idea. Calhoun planned a canal between Pittsburg and Lake Erie, along the Identical route now being proposed for such a canal. Henry Clay was not much of a canal advo cate. When they were planning to 'build the Boo canal he used all the force of his eloquence against It. saying that it would be squandering the public money on chimeras be yond the domain of civilization or the moon. Today that canal carries a freight the weight of which Is more than double that of all our vat ex port trade. It does the work of fif teen railroads at the coBt of one. The railroad rates on the freight that pasres through the Soo canal would amount to $156,000,000 more than the water rates are. Great Saving In CMt. The saving of cost by water trans portation Is little short of wonderful. With the Ohio River improvements far from completed the rate on coal from Pittsburg to Louisville by water Is only one-tenth as much as the rail rate. From Louisville to New Or leans it is only one-eleventh as much. A single powerful steamer, like the prague, will now tow 60,01)0 tons or freight rrom Pittsburg to New Orleans in fifteen days. It would take 100 railroad trains to carry the same coal. This load would be enough to furnish a cargo for three big coal carrying steamer. eilow lrutrroiM Ma.lo m I'ar. There ar now project for the im provements of watedways in ttia United States, the total coat of which will be half a billion dollars. All of these have been approved by the board of engineers, and the surveys tor them have been made by Con gressional authorisation. Hut the mills of waterway Improvement, like those of the gods, grind slowly. The improvement of the Harlem River, nunder the very shadow of Wall street, was undertaken In tne total cost of which , was to be loos than 13 000. 000. The project Is now just about half done. In 1675 11 was decided to give the Ohio a lack water navigable deptn of six feet. In all these Intervening years the work has gone on, and finully it was de cided to give a nine-foot stage Instead of six tout. At the rate the work has progressed from the inception of the project it will be a hundred years before it will be completed, illow ever, they have been making better progress in the last few yearn, and if the work is continued at the same rat of progress, the Ohio will have a nine-foot navigable depth My years hence. The total cost of the work Is eslfmntcl at $03,000,000. Crying- XrtM for Waterways. But the country seems to be awak ening .to the nectv wltle of the hour, and under the stimulus of the Ulver and Harbor Congress there may be a hnstening of the date of completing the more important projects. Last year's Ulver and Harbor bill was the largest In the history of the country. Philadelphia Is urging a tweniy-sev-en foot channel across New Jersey to New York. Boston wants one from New York to Boston. Baltimore is asking for one from there to 1'hlla delphla, and Pittsburg is figuring on one to Luke Erie and another to Ilal tlmore. Cincinnati want one to Toledo, and Chicago Is bound to get In touch with deep water via her drainage cannl and the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers. Some of these days Dululh and Minneapolis will get the canal they are seeking. At the same time there are vhsi demands for an Inland waterway for the coast wise commerce from Boston to Gal veston. There are only a few links to 'upply, and It takes no prophet to see that the d.iy win come wnen they will be supplied. It hag been figured that It will take only 1200, 000.000 to build a fifteen-foot canal from Duluth to New York, utilizing thp enlarge 1 Erie Cnnal In the plan. When the last of the civil war pen sioners dies, the pensions that are now paid to them, over a hundred million dollars a year, will he suf ficient in fifteen years to build every canAl herein mentioned, and leave enough .surplus to extend the channel of the Red River of the North to Hudson Bay. ami to establish profi table navigation into the very heart of Montana. Even now there may be some Washington riding horse back over the Great Divide figuring on the construction of the great ln teroceanlc canal of the future. The 1,500 feet to be ascended In 150 miles from Fort Benton presents no great er engineering difficulty than the l'ftlng of the Erie Canal 200 feet In five miles, or the raising or tne Blackwater Canal to a point 1,100 feet above the Hudson. Will llolp Kast ami Weft Alike. Well might the Eastern cities be ftitving to establish water connec tion with the Mississippi Valley. The great agricultural region Is tributary to the Mississippi, and wltl. the com j.ol'rn of the Panama C'ai.il New Orleans and Galve.'ton will be nearer to more of the future markets of the world than any of the Atlantic sea board cities. If cheap water trans Dortation Is established with New Orleans from all Interior points, and none Is established to the Atlantic seaboard, there will be such a won derful diversion of traffic as would leave the eastern cities shorn of their foreign commerce, to which they owe their supremacy. Already, and without such facilities. Galveston claims second place aj the export center of the United States. The Mississippi and its tributaries drain the richest and most extensive farming region In the world, amount ing to one-half the total area of the United States. It Is as large as all Europe and Great Britain, except Ru-'aia. Napoleon said that the-na tion which controlled the Mississippi would become the mightiest nation on earth. America has fulfilled the prediction. When the time comes that the products of our factories are doubled, the crops of our farms Increased by hair, and we have to bring raw materials from the ends of the earth because our own sup- nlles have been exhausted, nothing will suffice but deep inland water ways. Jt Is that period which the River and Harbor Congress sees ahead of us, and for which It is beg ging the government to provide In due time. A Hard Debt to Pay.

New York, Dec. 13. While the rich men of the country are being pinched by the present financial stringency, and are sacrificing gilt edged securities to obtain ready money, ligures seem to Indicate clear ly that the poorer classes have not suffered accordingly. Particularly do the Christmas ligures bear out the fact that it is a "rich man's panic." wore than lj.iioo.OUO was sent by foreign-born persona in New York City during the last month, to their Kindred abroad, and the Christmas rush at the New York postotllcs money order windows la Just begin ning. During the month of November Ihe amount of the foreign money orders, certified to at the general poalolllee in this city alone, amount ed to $6,531,1(27.00, against 35,490,- lii.ib lor the month of November lost year. This vast rortune is now enriching the peasantry of nearly every lund under the sun, and scat tering Christmas presents every where. Extra facilities will be put In at the money order department to ac commodate the throngs of foreign ers who are dally clamoring for the strips of paper which carry gladness and comfort from America to the poor of their families left at home. Superintendent Ellott, who for thir ty years has been In charge of the money order branch of the New York postoflice, said yesterday: We are Just beginning our rush season In this business, but the fig ures for the transactions of the last few days show incontestably these two Important facts: No Sign of Hard Times). "First, that the great exodus of aliens back to their native lands which has taxed the steamship lines recently does not mean, at all, that the foreigners In this country are leaving because of any panic or hard times. "Second, that Immigration Into this country next spring wil be greater than ever, since much of this money sent away is for the purpose of bringing over members of families who were too poor to come when the senders of the money orders came." Supt. Elliott is In a better posi tion than any other officer of the United Sates government to make a study of the conditions now prevail ing among the foreign-born popu lation of New York City. For three decades he has seen them throng about the money order window Just before Christmas, chattering like magpies, clamoring In twenty differ ent languages for the privilege of sending money home. The average sums of these remittances is Mr. Elliott's guide to a correct view of the situation among them, and he says that the sums this year are larg er than ever before. They range from $1 to $1,000, but the average Is between $10 and $15. In past years the average has been Bmaller. The Italians send more money home for Christmas than any other class of New York' foreigners, and their money orders are individually for larger sums than those of any of the others. "Why, you would scarcely believe It," said Mr. Elliott to a World re porter yesterday, "but I saw only yesterday a large flock of these Ital ians in the olilce, each of them send ing home a money order for $500 or $800, and several of them $700. When we bear In mind that these money orders do not pass In the reg ular channel of trade that is, they do not go to pay for merchanlso Im ported here, but to support kindred In their home countries, or else to be put in savings banks on the oth er side of the water, we can form a pretty definite idea of the prosper ity of the foreigners on Manhattan shores. Rush Vet to Come. "And, be it understood, the rush SCENE IN "WAY DOWN EAST' fl . - V Si-axtr. lif er season It revisits the cities of ih. (Mrtererit sections of the ft untry to be greeted by welcome and crowded houses, as It was In the first days of It's great succei-s. In no field of endeavor is there a more universal demand for some thing new thm in theatricals, yet ie kpite the public's fickle sense In that rti-peci they remain valiant support ers of "Way Down Ka-t." The play has not ven thought of outliving it's un fulne.-.H. There is in the play such deft combining of humor and pathos with Incisive dramatic incident a tre- rs. ft TS ' won't be at !: highest notch until about a week from now. Dec. 14 and Is are usually our biggest days, and mis year the money order will be kept flying well nigh until Christmas Eve, for the foreigners here have an niea now trial tne Lusitania and the Mauretanla can get their Christmas gifts over the water In time, even it tliey delay the sending up to wlth- Ing a few day of Christmas. Tne public generally ha formed an idea thut, because nalt a million foreigners have gone back home from America during the last year. there must be hard limes among l hern, discouragement, idleness and all that sort of thing. Not at all, They have gone to bring back their families. It should te considered that immigration figures at Ellis Is land show that this has been a rec ord year In the numbers who have come here. The exodus Is only about in proportion to other years. considering how many have come into the country. "Of course during the winter months there Is less excavation worn in progress because of the snow and the condition of the earth, and many of the foreigner who engage In this sort of work find mid-winter a goo a time to go back home and stay until the spring is at hand. They then come back, and with them come wife, children, father, mother, cous ins and aunts. "Money order figures are the best evidence, and this year they show more than ordinarily that the for eigner In New York are prosper ous." Where tlie Money Goes. For the last week of November this year $234,721.61 went to Great Britain In money orders from the General postoflice in New York City, averaging about $5 each. Mr. Ellott thinks that this money is nearly all In the nature of Christmas presents from chambermaids, coachmen and servants generally who-came to New York from Great Britain. Last yeur the amount for the last week of No vember was only $200,000. Italy led all foreign countries for the week ending Nov. 30. as usual, the total this year being $6011,962.71. agaLnst $471,837.67 for the same week In 1906. More money went to Hungary that week than to Germany, the money orders showing $155,770.31 to Hungary and only $72,100.68 to Germany. Other figures for the last week of November, this year and last, are as follows: To Austria (1907), $188, 636.88; (1906) $171,701.29; to France (1907), $25,627.72; (1906). $22,389. 49; to Germany (1907), $72,100.68; (1906) , $70,122.99; to Switzerland (1907) , $13,869.94; (1906), 313,244. 45. The peasantry of Sweden were en riched this year by $121,486.65, which went out of the New York postoflice during the week ending Nov. 30, and is a decided Increase over the turn sent by Swede In this country to their homefolka last year for the corresponding week. WRITES WITTY NOTE . THEN SUICIDES 1a. Junta. Colo., Dec. 13. After he had apparently destroyed all letters and papers and even torn the band from his hat in an effort to conceal his identity, Laurence J. Jenkins, a stranger who had been living in a tent near Swtnk, Monday blew out his brains with an old musket which he had purchased for a few cents at a second hand store. He died be fore persons, cttracted by the shot, could reach him. The following note was found lying on the couch beside his body: "Well, boys, put me away some old way. I have $6 and a watch and a tent. The watch should buy me a box. Let the marshal know about my death. You need not try to find my name." In a vest, found In the bottom of his suitcase, were several letters which the man had overlooked and which revealed his Identity. They also showed him to have been a mem ber of No. 233, Knights of Pythias. The authorities are investigating In an effort to locate the man's rela tives.

In the northwestern corner of the vast territory of the Mexican repub lic, Amerlcun energy and capital are pushing forward great enterprises. For twenty-live years the .Mexican central railway on the east and the Sonora railway on the west, 300 miles apart, have furnished access to the outskirts of this vast wild region, but new road now are pushing in to and over the mountain and along the valleys. In 1898 the Sonora railway, to gether with the New Mexican & Arizona, was leased by the Santa Fe to the Southern Pacific company, which thus obtained a 350-mile branch reaching down from Its main line In Arizona to the (idlf of Cali fornia in Mexico. In 1903 the Southern Pacific ac quired the Cananea, Yaqul Klver & Pacific, which had built forty-four mile of road frum the Arizona bor der at Naco to the Cananea copper mines ana possessed large power for extensions. Under tne name of the "H&rrlman Line" the Southern Pacific ha com menced the construction of a great line from Ouaymas southward to Guadalajara, 750 miles, and haa also undertaken an extension from this line northward starting from Corral, sixty-four miles east of Ouaymas up the Yaqul river to the two fork of that stream, one of which a branch will follow to reach an arm of the Kl Paso & Southwestern at Nacoeari, and along the other a parallel branch will run to the Arizona bor der. These lines, which will open a now Inaccessible country abound ing in mineral wealth. will cover something like 400 miles. A branch to Topolobampo on the coast also Is projected. The line to ward Guadalajara already is built from Guaymae to Navajoa. 118 miles with a branch from Corral north to Buena Vista, twenty-six miles. The Sierra Madre & Pacific has been organized to absorb and extend the Rio Grande. Sierra Madre 'at Pacific under concessions from the Mexican government covering nine lines, as follows: Nueva Casae Gran dee to Nallurachlc, Chlluahue, 140 miles; Nallurachlc to point at or near Santo Tomas, on the Chihuahua At Pacific railway, about. twenty miles; Nallurachlc to Temosachlc, ten miles; Temosachlc to Derdick (thirty-two miles), built; Derlck to a point at or near Guzman, at or near Temocachic to Maicoba; Matcoba to Agiabanvpo, and Maicoba to Ouay mas. The projectors propose to reach the Pacific at two ports, Guaymas and Aglabampo. The distance from Casaa Grandes to Agiaibampo appears to be about 400 miles, and the length of the branch from that line to Guaymas about 250 miles. Altogether, the length of new road proposed. Including the line north from Temocachic to the Arizona bor der perhaps 150 miles, and the branch from the old road at Lake Guzman' went along the Arizona bor der, seem to be over 1,000 miles. FromEl Oro on the Rio Grande, opposite Presidio del Norte, Tex., to Topolobampo, on the gulf, the dis tance by the route of the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient railway Is 627 mile, of which 122 miles are cov ered by the tracks of the Chihuahua & Pacific. Of the remaining 505 miles un dertaken by the Orient company there are completed eighty-seven mile from Minaca, aouth and sixty four from Tupolobanpo north, leav ing two gaps of eighty-two and 205 miles to be filled, the latter Includ ing serious work over the range. From the portion of the El Paso tk Southwestern which extends from El PaBO to Benson, Ariz., a branch has been built, chartered In Mexico a the Nacozarl railroad; from Doug las south to Nacozarl seventy- seven miles, reaching- Important copper mines. . The extemdon by the South ern Pacific of its Cananea, Yaqul River & Pacific branch north to Na cozarl will complete another route from El Paso to the gulf, and doubt leas will be followed by other devel opments In that Interesting region. BE PIANTED EARLY Press Bulletin No. 133. lust Issued by the New Mexico Agricultural col lege, Is of general Interest to farm ers, particularly those who have only recently taken up homesteads in this teiritory. One of the largest crops In many localities Is onions and the following by Prof. Fabian Garcia, should beearefully considered: nn station nuiietin ;o, oz it is re ported that better results can be se cured from onions transplanted as early as poshlble In the sprng. Very satisfactory results have been ob tained rrom onions transplanted as late as the lSih of March, while these transplanted after April 1st have always produced smaller anu Inferior crops. The wrlier has often received letters from onion growers In different part. of the territory complaining that the greater per cent of their onions produced scullions. Tht reason for this haa been, in moiit cases, the very late planting of the onions. The early planted onions at the station usually mature from the la.it of July to the first of September, de pending upon the variety. Unions ripening at tills time do not fell as well as later In the season. If onions could be planted late enough in the season so that they would ripen a heavy crop of good bulbs about the last of October, they could be dis posed of to better advantage and In larger quantities. Therefore, In or der to settle this particular point the department of horticulture con ducted a "Time of Seeding Test" during the past reason. Fourteen 1 200 of an acre plats were laid off February 1. 1907, to be seeded one every fifteen days. The first plat was seeded February first, while the Iaatt one was seeded Augu-t 14. 1907. The variety used for the tent was the Drown Aus.raltan, which la a ma!l growing kind but a good kep- While the plats were planted at aiirerent times it was very interest Ing to note that all of those that rip ened a erop matured about the same time and these were harvested on September 10th, 1907. The early plats produced good sound bulbs; the medium late produced only a few nuins and a great many scullions; while the very late planting produc ed nothing but scullions. A better Idea can be had of this t&'t from the following table which gives the yield per plat and the date or planting: Dote 'Sound Bulbs Scullions Feb. 1 129 Mi pounds 6 pounds Feb. 15 94 pounds 7 pounds Mar. 1 55 pounds 13 pounds Mar. 15 13 pounds 15 pounds Apr. 1 7 pounds 18 pounds Apr. lfi & pound. 15 pounds May 1 . . . 4 pounds May 15 4 pounds jun. s The other nve plats were practic ally failures and were not ven har vested. From these results at the station It would seem that the later the onion are planted the smaller and Inferior the crop. It Is quite evi dent that under our conditions onions canot be depended upon to.1 mature good and heavy crops late in the fall. FABIAN GARCIA. Dec. 6, 1907. NOT HINDER El However. He Will Not Permit Any Interference with Tali's Plans. Washington. Dec. 13. Because of his personal relations with Secretary Cortelyou and his regard for him he president haa thrown nothing In the way of the movement for the sec retary of the treasury. !He has let It run along diplomat ically sidestepping matters that would place him In the position of deliberaiely Bitting u.nvn on the whole thing. Hut he did not mean that his diplomacy and his regard for Mr. Cortelyou should be mistaken by the Cortelyou boomers holding office and used by them to do harm to Secretary TafL That is Just what has followed, however. Some of the Cortelyou people have told the president that they can do nothing for Secretary Taft in the south, and that Cortel you Is the only man who can carry the delegations of certain states. But the president is dubious about that. He ha an idea that the whole thing Is done to secure delegations that may later be thrown io Hughes, Foraker or Fairbanks. He will not attempt to put the screws on the of ficeholders who are outspoken against Taft, unless he reaches the conclusion that their whole aim Is to take delegations to the natlorFUl convention ostensibly for one man, but really ready to spring to another In whom the president does not have confidence. The president knows that he cannot afford to give Instruc tions that federal officeholders any where shall support Secretary Taft, but he does know that he has the power to prevent them using what he considers unfair and Improper means to Injure hi friend and po litical favorite. That he has now passed down the line his determination that his ap pointees shall not go out of their way to injure Taft, especially by misrep resenting his own position. Is ex pected to create something of a sen sation politically. To many minds It further fore shadows possible unfriendly relations between the president and his secre tary of the treasury, who Is cogniz ant of the latei-i stand taken by the chief executive. That there will be ill feeling between Mr. Taft and Mr. Cortelyou when the former returns and has reported to him some of the manipulations of the Cortelyou boomers. Is also predicted In well In formed circle. The nresldent realizes from Infor mation that he has received, that he Is fast being placed Iji the position of disloyalty to Secretary Taft and con nivance at the Cortelyou campaign, lie Is flatly determined that this shall not continue, and In the last few day he has spoken unmistak ably. Federal officeholders who are supporting Cortelyou and talking against Taft now understand tnai they cannot any longer do this at the expense of the president' atrong regard for and loyalty to Taft. If they do not cease attacks upon sec retary Taft the president strongly intimates there will be trouble. The Information taken to the pres ident Is that Mr. Hitchcock, first as sistant postmaster general, wno is the acknowledged manager of the Cortelyou campaign, has been tell ing various republicans, especially those from the south, that the bot tom has been knocked out of the Taft "boom and that the president is perfectly willing that southern re publican shall give their backing to Mr. Cortelyou. The straight facts are that the president Is by no mean satisfied that Taft has lost any strength; has no Idea of deserting him for Mr. Cortelyou or anybody else: believes he will be nominated and elected and will stand by him to the last.
