CAMKOUNIA, May 22, I DO!) Vital to the Coast. Returning from a trip to Panama, whither ho went. perHonally to investigate the progress of the work on the Isthmian canal, Mr. McLachlan, the represot tative In congress from this district, is more convinced than ever of the necessity of a federal steamship lino on the Pacific. It will be remembered that Mr. Alc- Lachlan introduced In the last con- gross a bill that had for IIH object I ho operation by tho government of a lino of steamers between Pacific coast ports arid the Pacific terminal of the Panama railroad. Me ha« rclnt.roduc- cd the measure in the present congress, and meanwhile the whole Pacific coast has rallied to Its support with nil the unanimity of a people long oppressed l>y extortionate freight charges. Through their legislatures, commercial bodies or otherwise;, the people of Oregon, Washington and California exhibited their most decisive approval of the IVf.-Lachlan bill, but there seems !.n have come a suspension of the campaign. In an Interview given on tho day of his return, Mr. McLaehlfin said: "At the last session of congress I introduced a bill which had as its object the acquiring of a fleet of ten 5000-ton vessels that would run from Fuget Sound to Panama. It seemed to me that this would be a natural thing to do and one that would have many benefits. All that I have seen on tho isthmus has only tended to confirm this idea. "It would give the Pacific coast a fair show, and would be a great help to Southern California. The vessels could stop ut points along the coast and it would not, bo necessary to send products GOO miles by rail to San Francisco, the first stopping point of the lines that now run from California to the Isthmus. Ton suitable vessels would Insure a weekly service. "I know that there would bo some sentiment against the government going Into tlila work, but as n matter of fact it is now conducting such n line on the Atlantic const, and there Is no valid reason against one on the other side of the continent." If It Is within tho proper exercise of government power to operate a line of steamships on the Atlantic, there Is no valid reason against the exorcise of the same power on the Pacific,, but however defensible such action might be, It will not be taken unless this coast sustains McLiicnlan's efforts with something more than resolutions of approval. If those states unite and give their senators and representatives to understand that their political lives arc dependent on the sincerity and strength of the support they give to this great measure, we shall obtain the commercial emancipation we seek. One representative Is powerless, however able bis endeavor or just bis cause, but when the stales of the Pacific const present a solid and united front In congress In support of a measure, that measure, In all human probability, will llnd some way to the slat uli- book. There is opposition, as a mailer of course, .\'o robber relishes the advenl of an boiH'Hi policeman. As Mr. Me l.aclilan says: "I am not overlooking the fact that tlic iiiimi-ii;,i- ;iml powerful transcontinental railroads will light my bill. I can only say now I lial all I have Ici.rncd in my study of conditions on the canal /one lias made me see even more clearly ibe neccssiij lor a Pa cilic coast steamship line." The immense and powerful Irans- coniiiieiiial raihoads will light his bill. i\ii'.\ they will beai i 1 unless Oregon anil Washington and California com- I e| ibeir il'-lei'utes 111 congress to rise • a support as persistent 11 as I he op (ID-til ion Mi I .adi la n ha.-; .-.hov f !il I;: H li anil Mil , <. . •• i, 11. r i: Covlna Monrovia ter's diamond this afternoon In whit will probably be the last game played so far in the league series. In the games played HO far this season the jjoyn have played In form, and the slugging abilities of some of the youngsters Is remarkable Riggins heads the list with an average of .COO, while Hprotte's 470. including homers and triples, is not so bad. Hull has easily outpointed all the opposing talent In the pitching line ho has been up against, and also bfi.ts In the 400 class. Covlna lends the league with a straight, record of victories, while the foothill high school has dropped one. Cornpton is the otlK-r school that, stands a good show of finishing strong, as (bey hove only suffered one defeat so far. The local school Is pitted against these two teams in their final games, and It will be necessary for them to trim at least one of these two to win the pennant. "THE SILENT TENTS."
