Henry T. Clurke is In Washington to at
tend ths meeting of the National River
and Harbor congress, which was called for
January tf. This convention will consider
a scheme to be presented to pongrees in
pursuance of a resolution Introduced by
Mr. Clarke at the Tranamieaineippi Com
mercial congreaa at Portland August K It,
1( and 19. The resolution waa:
Resolved. That with the many large and
preealng emanda on the treasury for the
improvement of our rivera. harbors and
waterwava. and the Inability to grant
funda from the internal revenues, that con
gress be asked to provide meana for the

the larrert steamers and steamships that
wish to use the same, by issuance of st leaat
tiMi."'.t of 2 per cent bonda, to advance
the work under way and supply other needs
aa faat aa can be done with due regard to
Mr. Clarke's scheme is to have the gov
ernment iaaue bonds Instead of a direct
appropriation. He says his Idea Is not so
much to make the Missouri a navigable
stream as to prevent erosion and thus save
thousands of acres of land which are now
yearly wa sting into the river and taklug
along with It the results of years of
toil on the part of the farmers alongvjUie
river bottoms. Omaha is not so much
affected by this erosion, aa the Immense
volume of slag thrown out by the emelter
company haa made a permanent bank on
this aide, but the farmers above Omaha
and below are in oonatant danger from this
Scott King of South Omaha, engineer of
the stock yards company, has invented a
scheme which will build a sandbar In
twenty-four hours at any given point, and
this Mr. Clarke will present to the con
gress. It is very simple, consisting of
anchoring a chain to the bank and having
ome . orusn uea on. j tils will form a
sandbar, which win stop the washing, form
a sand bank and straighten out the liver.

The outlook for brisk competition among
paving contractors for a large amount of
work In Omaha Uiia year ia regarded at
the city hall as encouraging. Conclusions
are based upon developments among the
big paving companies and Indies t tons of a
healthy battle not only in asphalt, but la
brick block aa well
As a matter of fact, however, all new
paving In Omaha next year not already
contracted for depends upon whether a
IM.etie intersection paving bond issue la
authorised by the people by a two-thirds
vote at the spring election. The Intersec
tion fund Is empty and paying work can
not go forward until It is replenished.
Many changes bar taken place among
the operating officers of the Barber Asphalt
Paving company during the last few
months. InchMltnr the resignation of Super
intendent Mclaughlin of the Omaha dis
trict. On the other hand, the A. U. Barber
Asphalt company, which has valuable con
cessions In Veneauela, tt pushing Its cam-
fajgn against the other Barber company,
of which John Mack Is the bead.
Maraaf with A. L. Barber.
Locally it ia given out that Hugh Murphy
will represent the A. L. Barber people
and will give the Mack people a warm run
for their money on local can tracts. It waa
noticed last year that the Mark company
stayed pretty well out of Lincoln snd Hugh
Murphy only landed a few asphalt con
tracts in Omaha, but this kind of an ar
rangement will hardly go this year. It is

"DEB MOINES. Jan. . (Special.) The
Question has been laised today whether or
not the EnglMh and Chaaaetl force have
a majority In the senate for state printer
and binder. If they haven't It may result
in the blocking of legislation along many
lines at this session. English and ChasM-Il
claim to have eighty vote pledged for the
Joint session of the senate and house, at
which the state printer sod binder will be
elected It Is recognised that the greatest
amount of strength for the two men Is in
the bouse. The Joint meeting at ahich
tba election will take place will be oa a
Joint resolution. Tb bouse mar paaa th
resolution and the enate refuse or delay
to go lnu Joint session or refuse to fix a
