New York, March 7.—The develop*
meuts-of the waterways of this coun-
try as the best means of regulating
railroad rates was advocated by Con-
gressman Joseph EL Ransdell of Louis-
iana in an after dinner speech last
night at the annual banquet of the
North Side Board of Trade In the
“Water tcansporatlou," said Mr.
Ransdell, “is from three to ten times
as cheap as rail, and it should be de-
veloped to the utmost, both as a car-
rier of freights and a regulator of
rates. Wherever we have rivers, ca-
nals and lakes, with good navigation,
freights are cheap and there to no
demand for rate legislation.”
Mr. Ransdell’s remarks were hearti-
ly cheered. The speaker den -«ed
as niggardly the policy pursued by
Congress toward national waterways,
and declared that this poll’cy tended to
the utter neglect of facilities for wa-
ter transportation, and resulted in de-
cided detriment to American com-
merce. He called attention to the
cheap freight rates prevalent in
France and Germany as a result of
the numerous canals of .those coun-
tries and offered statistics to show
that of the total appropriations for all
purposes made by Congress in the
last ten years, the rivers and harbors
had received only 3 per cent and that
only 1 per cent in addition to that had
been appropriated for the promotion
of commerce while 40 per cent had
been expended for the army, the

Chosen Chairman of Democratic Con-
Washington, March 7.—The Demo-
cratic Congressional campaign com-
mittee elected both Its chairman and
secretary by acclamation last night.
This was no surprise as to the elec-
tion of Mr. Griggs, for all opposition to
him was withdrawn several days ago.
But until* yesterday ex-Congreseman
Dlnsmore of Arkansas waa a candi-
date for the secretaryship against
Charles A. Edwards, and there were
some who thought he might be elected.
The argument against Mr. Edwards
was that he, like Mr. Griggs, was an
ardent admlret and follower of Mr.
Hearst, and those who supported Mr.
Dlnsmore thought the election of these
two would put too much Hearetism In
the committee. But a count of noses
disclosed a large majority for Mr. Ed-
wards, and accordingly when Judge
Smith of Texas nominated Mr. Ed-
wards, Congressman Macon, who had
been chosen to nominate Mr. Dtns-
more, seconded the nomination of Mr.
Mr. Griggs took occasion to say that
bis election meant nothing beyond
the fact that a very hard fight would
be made to get control of the next
Houbo. If there was a great deal of
Hearstism involved in the election of
Mr. Griggs, It was effectually con-
cealed. Mr. Griggs was nominated by
Mr. powers of Mississippi.
Campaign plans were discussed, but
the only definite conclusion was that
the work should be begun early. This
means almost Immediately after ad-
Journmept of Congress.
