Importance of providing prope; terminal facilities Including ample water supply at the different ports on navigable waterways is emphasized in a circular letter being sent out to com mercial bodies and others interested throughout this section from the U. S. district engineer's office, Montgom ery, Ala. Copies of the letter have been re ceived here and among other thing3 to which attention is called it is inti mated that more and more attention Is to be given the development of port facilities- and that it is important that all who are Interested give every pos sible attention to their port. " Attention is invited in the letter to the following provisions in the next-to-the-last paragraph of section 1 of the river and harbor act approved March 2. 1919: "It Is hereby declared to be the pol icy of the Congress that water term inals are essential at all cities and towns located upon harbors or navi gable waterways nd that at least on public terminal should exist , con structed," owned, and regulated by the municipality, or other public agency of the state and open to the use of all on equal terms, and with the view of carrying out this policy to the fullest extent possible the Secretary of War is hereby vested with the discretion to withhold, unless the public interests would seriously suffer by delay, monies appropriated in this Act for new projects adopted here, or for the further improvement of existing pro jects if, in his opinion,' no water term inals exist adequate for the traffic and open to all on equal terms, or unless satisfactory assurances are received that local or other interests will pro vide such adequate terminal . or term inals. The Secretary of War, through the Chief of Engineers, shall give full publicity, as far as may be practicable, to this provision." "I am directed to bring this matter to the 'attention of all Chambers of Commerce and other similar bodies, and to the attention of any other parties-who may be Interested. Tour at tention is especially invited to the fact that without suitable terminals you are unable to gain for your city full" advantage of the navigable water ways improved by the United State-J. .Tieir condition is .somewhat 'similar to the hcnrileap under which a lail lOad would be working if it had good tracks but no freight yards at - its terminals. . A review of .the recent legislation shows that Congress is go ing further and further from year to year in requiring that local interests shall provide' proper terminals to en able the navigable waterways to be used to advantage." - BOY IS KILLED ACCIDENTALLY; IN WOODS HUNTING Quincy, Fla., May 20.
