work is either drudgery, which they

Did you ever hear of a squatting
mule? asked a prominent coal op
erator. Veil, 1 don't blame wj for
not knowing what I mean, for, after
fifteen years' experience in the busi
ness I did not know of such a mule
i.ntiJ recently. One o our men sent
me word that on one ot the working
there was a steep Incline over which
it was difllcult for the men to push
the cars. Try a mule, said I. io
reply he stated he bad purchased a
squatting mule. In mines tt means
a good deal of money U get a mule
that can do the work. .and at the
same time small enough to walk
through the low workings of th
mine. Sometimes for hundreds of
feet the tunnels will le high enough
to allow a mule to walk through
them: then at some points trie cell
ing may get so low that the mule
cannot crawl under it. Now to make
the passageway high enough for the
ruu.e would entail a great expense.
But a squatting mule obviates this
by crouching down when it gets to
the low places, adapting Itself to the
beightof the tunnel as much as pos
sible So a squatting mule to miners
is much more expensive than one
that is not so trained.

Tbe secretray of the executive board in
the northern deep water association,
Frank A. Flower, in relation to the dis
patch ent out from Minneapolis re
garding the scheme for using the Can
adian ship caaal, said: "As far a we
know the vessel owners have made no
such move. Our association, composed
almost equally of Americans and Cana
dians, is working to have the two coun
tries unite on an equitable basis to con
struct ship channels from the great
lake to ths sea one via the St. Law
rence and one via the Hudson river to
New York, making two outlets from
the lakes to the Atlantic and making
seaport of ail lake ports. The Cana
dian have the only canal around
Niagara falls, tho Welland canal. Here
tofore e .have had the only locks
around the Soo, bat the Canadians have
just completed a lock on their own soil
around the Falls of St. Mary and next
season they wilt use it a 'id caa then, as
they have heretofore, impose restric
tions on the use of (heir canals to and
Jn the St. Lawrence by American ve
sels. ""Ve hope before there shall be any
Cor.flict to have come before congress
aud parliament a complete report on
the entire subject from an interna
tional, llnancial as well as engineering
standpoint, the canal or canals to the
sea to be free and neutral, a part of the
high seas. In fact, the cost of construc
tion and maintenance to be borne in
equitable pruportlpn according to pop
ulation or commerce by other nations.
Tbe alleged s'eps by the ship owners, I
think, is wholly mythical, as many
mall owners are opposed to deep chan
nels and big locks everywhere, believ
ing' such improvements would permit
the constantly eultrgiug craft to drive
tbe smaller ones out of business. All
tbe owners of big vessels favor the
plan, but not on any such absurd basis
as Is alleged in tbe Minneapolis dis
patch. There will be a meetinif of the
executive board in Chicago next week,
at which there may be further develop
ments." Mtd 1 hair ICrptvrl.
White Bihcii, Wis., Nov. 22.-The
engineers sent out by Major Kesri of
Dulutb under congressional authority
to make a preliminary survey of a
route for the proposed twtuty tivo-7ooT
ship canal from Lakejiuertor through
this town to the MTssissippi river near
8u Paul orliuneapoiis fiAve coinplIed
their work. Their report will be for
wardedto Major Searj and then to the
ecreiaryof war" and itU expected will
be laid by him before congress In his
annual report next mmith. This sur
vey, for which congress appropriated
10,000, has developed several new
facts. Heretofore the tbeorr has been
to erect a dam so as to raise the level
of the upper St. Croix lake 14 feet in
order to obtain a supply of water for
the operation of the locks. This
would add still another lock. Tbe en
gineers have discovered that by dredg
ing o as to lower this lake eighteen
inches a level gtrereh of water twentv-
four mile in length can be obtalned.l
The total length or th proposed canal
is about 112 miles. Tbe total cost has
not yet buen estima'ed. but it is
thought it will not exceed 9UO,000,000.
