VITAL FACTS ARE PRESENTED Cost of Getting Grain to Market Mate rially Reduced Through Shipment by Water—Benefits Distributed AI! Over the Country. You may not know it—you probably don't—but It is a matter of Importance to you whether the waterways of the United States are improved or not— and this Is true no matter who you are, what your business is, or what part of the country you live in. It may be that you are a farmer and you tell me that it is nonsense to say that it can make any difference to you whether the waterways of the country are improved or not, because you live away out west, miles away from any river which Is navigable now o< ever will be. Well, I admit that It is not as easy th see as the grain elevator down at four railway station, but the benefit lis there Just the same—a real, sure snough, dollars-and-cents benefit. Wa terways have already been of tremen dous advantage to the farmers of the country and their further improve ment will put more money into your pockets and those of your neighbors. Take grain for an illustration. A targe part of the grain raised in the country is shipped away from the place where it is grown, some for use In the eastern states and some for ex port to Europe. Under these condi tions the price of grain is not fixed at the nearest railway station. Your wheat, for instance, is worth just what it will bring in Liverpool—less the cost of getting it there. You can see at cnce that it makes a whole lot of difference to you how much It costs to stud your grain to New York or Liverpool—and there's where the waterway conies In. Where Economy Come« In. In 19.18 the average cost of carrying wheat from Chicago to Buffalo by lake was one cent a bushel, while the cost by rail Lt New York was 11.7 cents— almost twelve times as much, although the distance is the same. But grain which is to go all the way by water must be transferred to canal boats at Buffalo. Lltt'e canal boats drawn by multfe cannot carry stuff as cheaply as big ships driven by steam, so the through rate by water was six cents u bushel, a little over half as much us by rail. For the twenty years end ing with 1908 the water rate, on the average, was lower than the rail rate by 6.2 cents a bushel. On the ship ments from Lake Superior the differ ence was greater still, since Duluth le less than 100 miles farther from New York thau Chicago is by water and nearly 500 miles farther by rail, but no comparative rates are published. The beneficial effects of the water way, through lowered cost of transpor tation, are not confined to the grain shipped from cities on the lakes, but extend to practically all the grain produced. The total production of the five principal cereals—wheat, corn, oats, barley and rye—during the past 40 years, was over 120,000,000,000 bushels. If the average addition to the value of this vast volume of grain was five cents a bushel, and that seems a moderate figure in view of the facts stated above, the total Is more than $6,000,000,000—nearly all of which has gone into the pockets of the farmers. But while the beneficial effect of the Waterways extends to a surprising dis tance, a waterway close by exerts a very much more direct and powerful Influence than one a long way off. If the Great Lakes and the Erie canal have increased the value of grain all over the west, what do you suppose would happen if the Mississippi, Mis souri, Arkansas and Red rivers were so improved that boats could run ev ery day In the year unless hindered by Ice? Money Needed for Work. The National Rivers and Harbors congress is working for the improve ment of the rivers, harbors and water ways in all parts of the United States. Chairman Alexander of the rivers and harbors committee, saya Chat $339,000, 000 will complete every project which has been begun or has been recom mended by the army engineers. Five hundred million dollars would prob ably finish up all of these and all the new projects which will be surveyed and adopted within the next few years. The average annual production ol j the five principal cereals, which dur the last ten years has been 4,151, I 000,000 bushels, has been steadily In creasing and will probably continue to increase for some time to come. The complete improvement of all our waterways would Increase the value of every bushel of grain pro duced by at least five cents—my own opinion Is that It would be more than that. But let us be on the safe side. Sup pose we spend a billion dollars on waterways instead of a half-billion; su; se that the production of grain remains as It Is instead of increasing; and suppose that the price of grain Is Increased only 2% cents a bushel in stead of five. Even so, with production stationary, the expense doubled and the benefit cut in half, the whole $1,000,000,000 would be returned In less than ten years In the Increased price of grain alone. FREIGHT BÏ WATER COSTS ONLY ONE-SIXTH TO ONE TENTH AS MUCH AS BY RAIL. TRANSPORTATION'S BIG TOLL American People Annually Pay Out Three Times as Much for Trans portation as They Pay for Support of the Government. Do you know That the people of the United State* pay out each year about three times as much in transportation taxes, that Is, for the carriage of freight and pas sengers, as they pay In taxes for the support of government, national, state and local? That transportation affects the price of everything that everybody buys, , sells, eats, wears or uses in any way whatever—air, vtater and sunshine ex cepted? Thai cheap ti Jnsportatlon benefit* both the producer and the consumer, making wheat and cotton higher and flour and cloth lower at one and the same time? That the cheapest known transpor tation Is water transportation, costing, on the average, from one-sixth to one tenth as much as transportation by rail? That the direct saving ou the good* actually carried by water In the United States Is over $550,000,000 a year? That railways always make lowel rates when subject to the competition of waterways than where such compe tition does not exist? That the indirect saving, thus caused, is probably as large as the di rect saving given above? That both the direct and indirect saving would be largely increased by the further Improvement of our water ways? That waterways always Increase the profits of the railways with which they come into competition? For the rea son that waterways, by giving cheap transportation for raw materials, actu ally create both industry and com merce? As Is indicated by the fact That in 1900 there was only one city in the United Slates, with a population of 150,000 or over, which was not lo cated on a navigable waterway? And further How Frankfort Benefited. That Frankfort, Germany, grew more in the twenty years after the River Main was canalized than It had grown In the two hundred years be fore ? And again That Germany, which Is nearly 60, COO square miles smaller than Texas, but has one of the finest waterway systems In the world, had in 1908 a foreign commerce greater than that of the United States by over $500,000, 000 ? That throughout the civilized world the largest cities, the densest popula tion, the busiest and most prosperous people are to be found along naviga ble waterways? That the surest and speediest way to develop the resources of the nation and every state and section thereof, to Increase the growth of every city and community in the country, to pro mote the prosperity of every interesti Including the railroads, and of every citizen, east, west, north and south, Is to Improve all our waterways as fast and as far as we can? That money used for the Improve ment of waterways, wisely planned and honestly constructed, is not an expenditure but an Investment, which will pay a dividend of at least 100 per cent a year? Provision for Funds. ~Thit the benefits wmeu would re sult from the comprehensive improve ment of our waterways, and the losses which would follow our failure to make such Improvement, are so enor mous, that funds should be provided by the issuance of bonds- as has been done by railways—so that the work may be begun at once and finished as soon as possible? That the national government claim* exclusive Jurisdiction and exercise* supreme control over all navigable wa terways ? And therefore That It depends entirely on the con gress of the United States whether the work of creating a great national system of waterways shall be done at all ,and how soon It shall be finished? That the vote of the member of con gress from your district will help to decide the policy of the government with regard to waterways? That the action of congressmen is Influenced by the wishes of the'ir con stituents, when they know what those t < wishes are? That you have the right to ask the candidates for congress In your dis trict to state their position on this question now, before the election? That you are blind to your own In terests if you do not ask your candi dates to pledge themselves to work and vote for waterways If elected, and then demand of the one who is elect ed that he shall keep his pledge? The facts and figures given in this series of articles have been submitted In the hope that those who read them would see the Importance of the policy of waterway Improvement advocated by the National Rivers and Harbors congress, and would aid In securing the adoption of that policy. How well they have served the purpose for which they were written must be left for their readers to decide. \ Every obstruction to the free and open navigation of our waterways 1* « brake on the wheels of industry.
