the various cities that are planning for
river navigation. There were representa
tives present from towns along the Mis
souri, Mississippi and Illinois rivers, from
Minnesota and New Orleans.
Ex-Governor , Eberhart of Minnesota
presided at the meeting. He appointed a
committee' consisting of two men from

constitute an official body, whose func
tion will be to keep Irt direct touch with
the cities' planning on river navigation,
and co-operate with them. J. W Gamble

the members of the committee from

Manley, on returning, "that whatever
develops along the Una of river navi

that are not antagonistic to the rail
roads, but that it will be conducted in
inch a way that each type of transporta
tion will be a benefit to the other."
