Washington, D. O, June 19.—"No
commerce, whether ooastwise or other
wise, onght to be exempted from the
payment or oanal tolls," deolared Re
presentative Charles H. Barke, of
South Dakota, in a speeoh in the house
on the motion to oonoar in the senate
amendment to the bill repealing the
exemption olaase to the Panama oanal
Mr. Burke said it had oost the Unit
ed States nearly 9400,000,000 to oon
struot the oanal and it will oost a large
sum annually to fortify, maintain and
operate it, and his position was that
whoever uses the oanal, bailt at the
expense of all the people of his
ooantry, should be oompelled to psy
tolls. r,

Continuing Mr. Burke said:
"When the bill for the repeal of the
free tolls provision of the oanal aot was
onsidered in the present congress 1
regreted that the majority saw lit to
adopt an ironclad and drastic rule so
tbat no amendment could be offered
to It, beoaase I could not bring myself
to vote for it in the form in which it
was presented, for the reason that I did
not wish to eubsoribe to the oonolusion
of the president, who deolared in his
message that be considered the free
tolls provision of the oanal aot in plain
oontravention of the treaty with Qreat
Britain. If he had based
for the repeal upon .the other state
ment of his message, that he ooneld
ered the exemption of ooastwise shipp*
tag from the payment of tolls *a mis
taken eoonomio polioy,' I would have
gladly voted for it without any amend
ment, It not being possible, by reason
of the rule adopted, to even offer an
amendment, I was oompelled to vote
against the passage of the bill, and 1
would do so again tender the same cir
cumstances. I did vote for the motion
that was offered to reoommit the bill
with lnstraotlons to add the following
"Strike out all of section 2 and insert
in lisu thereof the following:

The Amerioan eagle will do a
things in the screaming line in
Springs, July 4th and 5th the like of
whioh has seldom If ever been heard in
the Blaok Hills for a considerable
length of time. The local fire depart
ment have arranged a two day program
that will be a hammer. Three bands
have been secured, running and base
ball teams and at a considerable ex
pense an aeronaut will put on a baloon
ascension on both days. Special trains
will be ran from Rushville and Chad'
ron, Nebraska on the Northwestern
and from Crawford, Alliance and Edge
mont on the Burlington. A large
orowd is also expeoted from Rapid City

Boston streets are veritable "merry
go-rounds". You oan start out from
any point, and if you keep on going,
you will shortly over take the spot you
started from. No wonder Bostonians
oall their oity "The Hub".
When they want to oonstruot anew
building, they do not go to the
outskirts, where there is room, they
simply lQoate it in the middle of some
thoroaghf&re, and there are two streets
where before there was but one. But

things to eat and kind, hospitable
(Written on board the "Oanopio")
Who oan pioture the oonfusion and
exoitement of an ooean liner leaving
port? There is high tension every
where. Even the Amerioan weeps and
isn't ashamed of it. We weep whether
there Is any one to weep with up or
not. I think some of us weep just
because the other fellow is weeping.
Well, any how, it is a sort of renova
tion, and is good for one, Perhaps it is
that waihed oat, humble feeling whioh
follows good ory that later makes
one tarn a smiling faoe to his com
panion traveler. Perhaps it is why so
many good friendships are so readily
formed on shipboard.
Our little party was fortunate
enough to have friends wave to us

Sportsmen's Aid Sought Against Forset Fires
By Forest Service
Beoause of the faot that many foreet
fires are Bet through the oareleeaneaa
of hunters, campers, and othero who
go into the woods for reoreation, the
forest aervioe has taken np with mana
faotarera of fire arma and ammunition
the question of a cooperative arrange
ment through which purchasers and
users of guns and cartridges shall be
reminded of the flre danger.
It has been pointed'oat that In the
lumber regions of the northwest, for
example, manufacture re and other
business men have been having printed
or Btampsd on their stationery and pay
oheoks various orlop, eatoby statements
about the loss whioh the pnbllo saffera
through the deoreased demand for
labor and deoreased money in circula
tion If timber, whioh la the eoaroe ot
many of the northweet'e industries, la
burned ap.
It haa also been pointed oat that In
the east particularly many foreet flree
are started by the oarelessnese of
hunters, who drop burning matohee,
cigar or cigarette stumps, or pipe ooala
in the woods, or perhaps balld a flre
whioh is left burning when the hunter
goes on. Forest fires of course greatly
injure the intereete of eportemen by
the birds of their proper oover. They
also Impair the food supply of both
birds and big game, through the de
struction of the undergrowth whioh
furnishes browse, berriee, and other
The eastern woods are expoeed to
the danger from fires principally In the
spring and fall, whan most of the trees
are bare and the leaves on the ground
dry. The spring fires, many ot
whioh are due to trout fishermen, may
destroy the eggs of game birds and
even young birds themaelvea. Sinoe
trout fishermen are likely to hunt In
the fall, the aame individuals, If oara*
less, may be a source of danger at both
It Is suggested that the manufact
urers of arms aed ammunition ought
to be sufficiently lntereeted-in the
matter of perpetuation of game to ha
willing to help In the campaign agalnat
forest fires. This help may come
through the printing of some brief flre
warning on cartridge boxea or eome
allp to go with any hunting or camping
aupplies whioh are furnished. Several
manufacturers have alredy expreesed
their intereet in the matter and their:
willingness to help.
