C. C. VAN RIPER, Passenger Agent. NEW YORK, November 17, 1905.
The ACTING CHAIRMAN. How often, under the schedule that has just been received in evidence, are the ships of your company due to arrive at Panama?
Mr. SCHWERIN. (After consulting schedule.) Do you want me to read them by the months, sir?
The ACTING CHAIRMAN. No; unless it is the wish of some member of the committee.
Mr. SCHWERIN. We are supposed to have an arrival and a departure each week in Ancon, and an arrival and departure each week in San Francisco.
The Acting CHAIRMAN. And during the past year has any ship of your conipany departed with a short cargo when there was not another ship in the bay ready to be unloaded or move out?
Mr. SCHWERIN. No, sir. I would like to read a letter on that point, sir.
The ACTING CHAIRMAN. I will be glad to have you.
Mr. SCHWERIN. I want to say that on one ship we lately had down there the Panama Railroad turned over to us on short-shipped papers a large number of packages, and the records on the papers show that some of those packages had been in their possession for seven months. I think the shortest time that any of those had been there was two months.
Here is a telegram on October 23, 1905, from our agent, Mr. Pearne, to Mr. Bierd:
“ Please rush over the cargo for Peking, giving preference to the 'Frisco. Owing to this freight not being over we are at a standstill on her.
Mr. Bierd replies, under date of October 26, 1905:
“Your message concerning the City of Para. I will hold the Advance until noon Saturday for the twenty-five passengers if you will hold the City of Peking until Monday night to get her cargo ex Ad
W. G. Bierd.” That resulted in further telegraphic communication on November 7th by Mr. Pearne:
"Bierd, Colon: We held our steamship Peking against our judgment and will to receive by her the cargo ex your steamship Advance at your special request. We did this in order to help you out, at the same time feeling confident that you would adopt a new system of handling the cargo on the clearing up of the accumulation by the steamships Aztec and Peking, loading your cargo up direct from ship to car, as was done formerly, instead of storing on pier first. However, we find that no change whatsoever has been made, that the samesystem of piling cargo on pier is being pursued, and we are now up against it. We wanted the cargo ex Idvance as stiffening for Acapulco, but in compliance with your request we held Peking for it. Now we have Acapulco, Para, and City of Panama in port, and the Acapulco and Para are suffering delay through the Frisco cargoes not coming over the road promptly. These continual delays would be avoided if the cargo was loaded direct to cars from ship. Please have these cargoes rushed over.”
I would like very much to read this letter, under date of November 9, if I might be permitted to do so.
The ACTING CHAIRMAN. You have that privilege.

Acting Supt., P. R. R. Company, Colon. DEAR SIR: I beg to confirm my telegram of the 7th instant re to the forwarding of cargoes.
In this connection I desire to point out to you that the holding of the steamship City of Peking, V. 10, for the cargo ex steamship Advance
