number of members of churches. Their
effect is much larger than that.

IMPORTANT LETTER IS SENT OUT
FROM DISTRICT .ENGINEER'S
OFFICE URGING PORTS DEVELOPMENT.
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
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." -

8th April, 1919,
I have very great pleasure in sending you this
letter to say how highly. I think of the great work which haa
been done by the Salvation Army amongst the Allied Armies
in France and the other theatres of war. From all sides I
hear the most glowing accounts of the way your people have
added to the comfort and welfare of . our soldiers. To me it '
has always been a great Joy to think how much the sufferings
and hardships endured by our troops in all parts of the world
have been lessened by the self-sacrifice and devotion shown to
thereby that excellent organization, the Salvation Army.
