PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 4.—The first trains over the Portland & Seattle railway will be run for a distance of 80 miles west from Kennewick on Oc tober 10. By that date the first sec tion of the road will have been com pleted and turned over to the operating department. By October 15 It Is ex pected to have trains running Into Lyle, Wash. Splendid progress has been made on the North Bank road ever since It was started, but the work has been par ticularly rapid during the past few months. Track-laying is now going on in good shape. In addition to gangs working west from Kennewick putting down track, other outfits are operat in „ east from yaifeahver and are also s vaaeouver ana are also | making good time.

This will not be at all impossible for the first 80 miles of the road, as soon as It Is turned over to the oper ating department, will handle any commercial business offering, although the traius will be run primarily for the benefit of contractors at work farther, down the Columbia and will transport construction materials to the front. The trains will be put on a regular op erating basis and will run on schedule. . making It possible to ruft Wains from ISILVER SERVICE FOR VERMONT . , * . . ,. ... • BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 4.—At thé Charleston navy yard today Interesting ceremonies were held in connection with the presentation of a handsome silver service by the state of Vermont to the battleship of that name. The presentatlon was made by Governor Proctor, who was accompanied by his officlal staff and a number of other, emlnent representatives of the Green Mountain State. In behalf of the United States navy the gift was wai accepted by Captain William P. Potter, the commander of the Vermont. At the same time a handsome silk flag was given to the battleship by the Vermont Daughters of the Revolution ( and the W. C. T. U. of the same state presented to each member of the ship's crew a comfort bag.

Already, as emr | history shows, the West has deter- , mined our national political develop m nt. and the fundamental principle of present American politics, political; equality, was originally a western Idea. ! Demand for Transportation The wonderful variety of resources | not I ln different portions of the valley make ti: demand for transportation alto gether exceptional. Coal, lumber, i sc corn, wheat, cotton, cattle—on the sur- j cef face of the soil, and beneath the soli ; the riches are great. Tber-> are al ready evident strong tendencies to in til best to our the n the great river j your doors or upon j orease the carrying of freight from the northern part of the valley to the Gulf. Throughout the valley the land Is so fertile as to make the field for the farmer peculiarly attractive; and where in the W st the climate becomes dryer we enter upon the ranching country; while in addition to the prod ucts of the soil there are also the man ufactures supplied in fnnnmerable manufacturing eenters. great and small. Cities of astonishing growth are found everywhere from the Gulf to the Great Lakes, from the Alle ghenies to the Rockies; most of them being situated which flows by some of its numerous navigable tribu taries. New mineral fields are discov ered every year; and th<- constantly increasing use of all the devices of Intensive cultivation steadily adds to the productive power of the farms. Above all. the average man I» honest, i but Intelligent, self-reliant and orderly. I as and therefore a good citizen; and , use farmer and wageworker alike—in the ; last analysis the two most Important | be men ln the community—enjoy a stan dard of living, -and have developed a standard of self-respecting, self-reli-j ant manhood, which are of good aug- | ury for the future of the entire repub- ; I lie. No man can foresee the limit of i the possibility of development in the j Mississippi valley. ; Heart of the United States. tur Such being the case, and this valley being literally the heart of the United States, all that concerns its welfare ; must concern likewise the whole coun try. Therefore the Mississippi river and its tributaries ought by all means I to be utilized to their utmost possi- ! bility. Facility of cheap transporta- ! tion Is an essential In our modern ctv filiation, and we can not afford any | ' longer to neglect the great highways i of which nature has provided for us. so These natural highways, the water ways, can never be monopolized by ; any corporation. They belong to all the people, and it is ln the power of no one to take them away. Wherever ; a navigable rlver runs beside railroads the problem of regulating the rates on ; the railroads becomes far easier, be cause river regulation Is rate régula- ; tlon. When the water rate sinks the | land rate can not be kept at an exces- j sive height Therefore It Is of na i tional Importance to develop these I streams as highways to the fullest ex j tent which Is genuinely profitable, j Year by year transportation problems become more acute, and the time, has come when the rivers really 1 fit to serve as arteries of trade should be provided with channels deep enough And wide enough to make the lnve-1 - ment of the necessary money profita | ble to the public. The national gov I ernment should undertake this work, 1 _ . . < " ber ^ the Immediately abutting land ! ' s mar ketdly benefited, and this here flt can be definitely localized, I trust tba * tbere be careful investigation j to see wbether some way can be de : visecl b y which the immediate bene ; flclari es may pay a portion of the ex Ponses—as It now the custom as re 1 certain classes of Improvements In our municipalities; and measures should be taken to secure from the lo calities specially benefited proper terminal facilities. The expense to the nation of entering upon such a scheme of river improvement as that which I believe it should undertake will neces sarily be great. Many cautious and conservative people will look askance upon the project, and from every standpoint It Is necessary, If we wish to make it successful, that we should enter upon It only under conditions which w-ill guarantee the nation against waste of Its money, and which will Insure us against entering upon any project until after the most elab orate expert examination, and reliable calculation of the proportion between cost and benefit. In any project like this there should be a definite policy, and a resolute purpose to keep in mind that the only improvements made shoul ' 1 be those real, J' national In their , hRracter - | " ° should act on tb e same principle in improving our rivers that we should I foll °" ln improving our harbors. The : srvat harbors are of consequence not j n,er "'>' tn the immediate localities, Ust to Immense stretches of country; and ' th * same true of the great rivers. It ! is theSe exeat rivers and great harbors I the improvement of which Is of prl nat ' on!

Moreover, ns a.f hntf dervt ln caring for the river so that it may become an efficient channel' of transportation, the United States gov ernment sliduld do It* fall part In levee buildiitg, which, 1** tlie lower reaches of the river,' will rièt orrty give a chan nel for commerce but wilt also give protection to' the adjacent botto««: lands. Need for Cop|rnuou* Plan., Immense sums I»ve alrea^-j been spent upon tha Mississippi by thw states and the nation 1 , yetr mtreft of It remains practically unused for eom-j metre. The reasons for tlfls fact are] many. One Is tiiat the work done by j :he national government at least has not been based upon a definite- and iconiimaon* plan. Appropriation.* by congre*«, instead of assuring the sc ady progress and timely completion cef each piece of work as it was under taken, have been Irregular and uncer taken, have been Irregular and uncer tain. As a direct ctmscquewe»-, for rcachin« plan* hava-beets. dlscnursrged and continuity in execution lnts been made impossible. It is aUbgetfrer on likely that better results wfll be ob tained so Tong as the method 1« fol lowed of making partial appropria tions at irregular interval* for works which should never be undertaken 1 un til tt* is certain that they can be car ried to completion wlthiir a definite andr reasonable time. Planned ami or derly development is essential to the best use of every natural'rf saure»; and to none more than to the Best ose of our thlarrd waterway». In tlie ease of the waterways it has- been eorrspleu j ouslÿ absent. Because such foresight j was» lacking, the Interests of our rtv er» have been-in fact overlooked, ln spit»- of tt» Immense 3ums »pent apon them. It Is evident that their most urgent need is a farsighted and com prehensive plan, dealing not with nav igation alone, nor with irrigation alone. i but considering our inland waterways I as » whole, and with reference to- ever 7 , use to- which they can lie pufc. The ; central motive of such a plan should | be to get from the streams of the UWted States not orrty the füllest, hut also the | most permanent, servlet' they are capable of rendering to th*y | nation as a whole, ; The industries developed under the ! I i stimulus of the railroads are for the j most part permanent Industries, and ; therefore they form the basis for fh tur • development. But the railroads have shown that they alone can not meet the demands of the country for ; transportation, and where this is true the rivers should begin to supplement the railroads, to the benefit of both, by I relieving them of certain of the less ! profitable classes of freight. Tie more ! farseetng railroad men, I am glad to tell you. realize this fact, and many of | them have become earnest advocates i of the Improvement of the Mississippi, so that it may become a sort of inland seaboard, extending from Gulf far tnto ; the interior, and I hope ultimately to the Great Lakes. An Investigation of the proposed Lakes-to-the-Gulf deep ; waterway Is now ln progress under an appropriation of the last congress. We ; shall await Its results with the keen est Interest The decision 1* obviously ; of capital Importance to our Internal | development and scarcely less so ln re j latton to external commerce.
