Why Tacoma Needs An
Industrial Waterway
The project of opening a large waterway into the vast unde
veloped tidelands of Tacoma, a domain large enough to care for a
(hoiiHand industrial plants, is before the people of Taooina and I'ierce
county. The Times, in order to K*ve Its readers the fullest possible
information concerning the pro|K>sition, will print from time to time
■trtioles prepared by the Citizens' Harbor Development committee out
lining the plan in detail.
Citizens who for any reason oppose the project or who desire
fuller information on any point are invited to write letters to the
Times. If the pro|»sed Wapato-Hylehos waterway is a good thing
Tacoma wants IT, and If it Is not a good thing Tacoma will pass it up.
Free and honest discussion of the proposition is what will bring out
the merits and demerits. So speak up. The third article is printed
In an effort to set before the
people of Tacoma and Fierce
-•ouuty the need, feasibility and
possibilities of an Industrial wa
j cerway, such as proposed in the
j Wapato-Hylebos project; to
meet any honest objections that
may arise in the minds of the peo
ple of this community, upon
whose support this or any other
project intended for the growth
and expansion of Tacoma must
ultimately depend, the Citizens'
Harbor Development Committee
will Issue short statements until
such time as every detail and
every phase of this problem which
confronts Tacoma has been gone
That Tacoma must put Into
motion every latent force, must
utilize every natural resource,
that it must avail Itself of every
opportunity in offering to ton
nage producing and wage-paying
industries something additional
to, or more attractive than that
offered by larger cities that have
perhaps a better start, is appar
While Tacoma people see in
Tacoma a potentiality as great if
not greater than that of any oth
er coast city, yet It would be fool
ish not to recognize the fact that
there are other cities on the Pa
cific coast which are larger and
able to make a display of appar
ently greater immediate advant
age to certain classes of new in
Before the present plan was
presented far .sighted Tacomans
were convinced that Tacoma
must find wherein Tacoma had
the greatest natural resource If
developed to offer commercial
and industrial enterprise, and
must ascertain to what particu
lar class of new Industries it had
most to offer —more to offer
than any of its competitors. It
was self-evident that the working
out of these problems would end
In the attraction of industries
which could not but increase the
prosperity of all and enhance all
property values, whether such be
In the nature of the investments
of a merchant in his store or of
the professional man or wage
earner In his home.
They were convinced that Ta
coma must find the particular
field of business endeavor for
which it was most gifted In nat
ural resource, and then must de
velop that field to its utmost —
must do It at once If it did not
care to lose this advantage over
its competitors.
They saw Tacoma had most to
offer, more than any of its com
petitors to offer in some kind of
a great industrial waterway
where the factory using as Us
base some product of this'coun
try or a raw material brought
here from foreign shores as
cheaply or more cheaply than to
other coast cities might find at
reasonable cost a site adequate
for for its purposes in equally
easy access to rail and water
The great delta at the bead of
Commencement bay offered an
unlimited amount of acreage
property held by more than 300
separate individuals, thereby
precluding the boosting of acre
age prices to prohibitive fig
ures. Other cities had to make
their Udelauds. The induntrtes
that found sites on such lands
must ultimately pay the "filling
In" cost, a coßt which they would
escape In Tacoma.
This was true providing this
acreage property held by the more
than 300 separate persons was
made available, providing it was
pierced by a waterway giving the
entire area access to water trans
portation equal to the best possi
ble rail facilities of four trans
continental railroads whose
tracks and trains cut through thlß
acreage property.

He Will Soon Have the Most
Remarkable Gun In the World
WASHINGTON, June 24.—The
most remarkable gun in the
world is Just now receiving Its
try-outs at thy army aviation oamp
at College Park, Md. Probably
Uncle Sam will accept It as an of
ficial arm, and man lta fleet of
aeroplanes with it.
The gun Is the Invention of
Lieut. Col. I. N. Lewis, of the
army. It Is a rapid-fire arm,
manufactured especially for aero
planes. It is small enough and
light enough—weight 25 pounds
—to be carried on the lap of a
pasßenger In a blplanie. More
over, It is the only air-cooled
rapid fire gun ever Invented. It
looks aliuoßt like a toy, but tesU
by officers unfamiliar with tts
mechanism and not used to firing
at targets from the air, huve
proven its deadllnees.
The new gun is fired by a pas
senger on a biplane. It can pour
out a perfect hail of steel-jacket
ed bullets. There is practically
