I - f , BY J. C. ROYLE : - . - · . . (Copy ri«ht. 1924) . ; . ' ' New York, Feb. 12.--It is just beginning to become evident what progress has beea made in the past year in inland water- ·ways transportation in this country and the effect it is having and will have even on the most arid regions of the country. As a result of this progress, Pittsburgh today is the second port in this country if tonnage is the basis of computation. This statement has been confirmed by the chief engineer of the army, who said, "Figures of the United States Engineers show that New York harbor alone has exceeded Pittsburgh in water-borne tonnage. The harbors of Philadelphia, New Orleans, Baltimore nnri Boston each nro r o i J O i ; j d tia h.av- in« moved from 3,000.000 to 10,001.000 tons less f r e i g h t than Pittsburgh in 19:3." TTFICAL PROGRESS. .. The case of Pittsburgh Is emphasized by the w r i t e r not because the improvement in water t r a n s p o r t a t i o n ·was confined to that section, but be- causo progress there was typical of ·n' at is being and can be done In other sections. P i t t s b u r g h handled 51.44S.660 tons of f r e i g h t by water Jant year. Of this a m o u n t 21,448,600 tong were moved in barges on the Mononpahela river, 6.460.555 tons on the Ohio and 3,240,6-10 tons on the .Allegheny. A largo portion of this t o n n n p c was loal moved from the mines to the steel mills nnd coke ovens. Sand and «rrave! also played a large --rt in t h i n m o v e m e n t but for the last three · ' · years there has a constantly increasing- v o l u m e ot steel products moving by the rivers. Now the oil industry has turned to inland w a t e r w a y transportation, usir.e tank b a r i r c s ^ t o carry the c r u d e and refined products. STEEL MILL TRAFFIC. This t r a f f i c from the steel m i l l s by w a t e r has had a t r e m e n d o u s b e a r i n g on the development of the south, west »nd southwest. Practically all the bis ·tecl makers of the Pittsburgh and Wheeling districts arc-making heavy deliveries of their products Into that territory at a price which wo'uld be Impossible were It not for uso of barjr.es to SL Louis. Memphis and New Orleans, nnd railroads from ·dose p o i n t s to cities in the Interior. From gulf ports the steel is ad- Tan'tascously reloaded on ocean-so- ln«T steamers to Central and South American countries and to the P a c i f i c coast and Orient via Panama. 90 TOW BOATS. There are n i n e t y steam l o w - b o a t s now in operation out of P i t t s b u r g h and over 2,500 steel barges oC 630 to 1.000 tons capacity each. These fleets arc take' advantage of the rivers.by ship- plnff to Cairo or St. Louis by rail and thence by water. It Is claimed faster. time Is ('made on large deliveries by river tUan by vail. Rows "of six to twelve steel ces carrying as fh as 12.000 ons have repeatedly run the 1200 miles from Pittsburgh to Mein-ihls or St. Louis In "8 to 10 days and to New Orleans In 14 to '16 days. One Pltts- urgh company has recently estab- ished a record by running between Pittsburgh and, Cairo at the rate of 213 miles a day constantly b c i n s augmented since the completion of locks and dams In tho Qriio seems assured, t h e r e b y puarantecins a throiigli water route f r o m Pittsburgh lo tho G u l f all the year around.
