Synopsis of tlie Report of the River
N tloual Associated 1'ri'jis.
WASHINGTON" , December 10. The
Mississippi river commission report
covers about eighty pages of foolscap
uid ia accompanied by several voluminous
inous appendices giving details of sur
veys of the rivor. The following is an
abstract of what the commission says
about levees ;
The utility of lovocs as a means to
prevent destructive floods , which is
one of the aids enumerated in the act
creating the commismon is too obvious
to require comment. The importance
to bo attached to that object is t\ mat
ter wholly within the discretion of
congress and not suitable to discuss
here. That the utility of levees as a
means to deepen the channel of the
river and improve and give safety and
oasp to navigation , is u subject on
which difference of opinions exist , und
in respect to which the facts alluded
to do not carry equal weight , is evident -
dent to the minds of all the members
of the commission. It is considered
by all that levees , by confining thu
flood waters of the river within re
stricted apace , aided in some degrco
to increase the llowing and deepening
power of the current ; but as to the
extent and potency of these influen
ces on the improvement of thu water
channel for the purpose of navigation
merely , improvement is most needed ,
and their value for that purpose , as
compared with ether methods of im
provement , and as compared with
their cost , are regarded as subjects requiring -
quiring further observation and
study and the accumulation of
further and moro comprehensive
data before the final conclusion can
bo reached concerning them. In the
meantime- the existing state of know
ledge and the judgment of the com
mission cannot bo bettor expressed
than in the words of their report of
February 17 , 1880. Tlio commission-
era say they are not in posacsssion
of the data doomed neccessary in
making a trust worthy the estimate of
the entire coat of a levee system , but a
great reduction in evidently praclic-
able in the amount of former esti
mates , Im.tL'd on thu nxsurcd existence
of it river bed not subject to evasion
and on levee work at forty or fifty
cents per cubic yard.
Speaking of solid structures the re
port sajs : "Failure- , disappointment
and imperfect results are to bo ex
pected in seine degree when dealing
with national agencies of great mag
nitude by means of novel and
imnmtured expediencies. It has
been shown by years of patient
and lastinq ctlort that solid and heavy
structures will not itund in the bed of
the Mississippi river , unless built of
.dimensions and curried to depths that
would forbid their gchoral uee for the
purpose of channel improvement , nnd
it may well bo doubted whether the
marvelous capacity of this water way
will over bo usefully developed nnd
inado tributary to the power , wealth
and happiness of the people , unless it
can bo accomplished by the use ot
light and comparatively inexpensive
devices like those which have bi'en
named or may bo devised and per
fected. It is the unanimous opinion
of the commission that tlio improve
ment of the navigation of the Missis
sippi below Cairo upon the plan recom
mended in 1880 is entirely practica
ble , and that completion of the works ,
for which partial cstimutcH wore then
submitted , with others of similar
character where the navigation is
bad or may hereafter become so , will
establish and maintain n continuum
low river channel not less than ten
foot deep over all shoals and bars be
tween Cairo and the hettd of tlio
passes , with the possibility of attain
ing practicable depths considerably
beyond that limit. In making the
required estimate of the total cost of
thcso improvementsdifficulties of ape-
them may bo mentioned the uncer
tainty necessarily attending the novel
methods of construction , the absence
of precedents indicating the degree
and promptness with which the de
sired results may bo achieved , the
possible existence of gravel beds
which will hare to bo removed by
dredging , and the probability that
ono of the effects of the improvement
will bo the development of bad bars
and the necessity of additional works
it localities where the navigation has
heretofore been good. " It is expected
that § 33,000,000 will cover the im
WORTH r OF I'llAISE.
