DEFENDS HARBOR BILL
K TWAIN'S OWN IDEA
OF THE DEFENSES OF PARIS
Senator Itanstlell Says UOO.OOO Will
Lobe Job if Measure Fails.
WASHINGTON. Sept. ll.-Wlicn tbe
river and hai:or appropriatlnii bill was
taken up in the Senate today. Senator
JIaiiidoll, of Louisiana, luudu vigorous dc
ffiisc of tli" measure.
"Each dollar cxpetjded on iiupiovliig
naternay gives $2 in reduced transporta
tion ehiige.--," said Senator Causdell. "ft
would be a great calamity If tlio pending j
uiu wiua. 4'iui ..ii.uuu employes Will oe
thrown out of work and a larger num
ber who furnish various mateiials, up
ward of iini.uoo persons, will lose their
weans of mppnrt."
'Senator llansdel! said that there was
not a single unworthy or improper Item
In tho hill, .boiich some had greater merit
Had the Germans possessed the war
map, which accompanies this article,
Paris wbuld have been In their hands by
now. Tho map, tho chef d'oetivro of Mark
Twain, was drawn by him and by thn
exercise of superhuman Ingenuity, also en
graved by htm. It Is true that It Is
somewhat askew, but ns General Nelson
O. Miles, who never saw the man ,1s re
ported to havo said:
"It was fully ns useful In 1870, when It
was drawn, as It Is today."
Tho map was published In tho VJuffalo,
N. Y., ISxpress, of which Twain was
owner, on September 17, 1870, nnd Twain's
description follows, together with some
testimonials, oven more enthusiastic than
that of General Miles:
TO TUB UKADMH.
The above mup explains Itself.
The Idea of this map Is not original
with me, but Is borrowed from the
Trlbuno und the other great metropolitan
I claim no other merit for this produc
tion (if I may so call it) than that it is
accurate. Tho main blemish of tho city
paper maps, of which It is an Imitation,
Is Hint In them more nttention seems paid
to artlstle plcturcsqiieness than geograph
Inasmuch as this Is the first time I ever
tried to draft and cngravo a map, or at
tempt anythlng'In the line of art at all,
the connnondntlons the work has received
and the admiration It has CNclted among
tlio people have been very grateful to my
feelings. And It Is touching to rellect that
by" far the most enthusiastic of these
prals.-n havo como from people who know
nothing' at all about nrt.
Uy an uniniportunt oversight I have cn
graccl the mup so that It reads wrong
end first, except to left-handed people. I
forgot that in order to mako it right in
print it should bo drawn nnd engraved
upside down. However, lot the student
who desires to contemplate the map stand
mi his head or hold It beforo her looking
glass. That will bring It right.
Tin., rrador will comprehend at a glance
that that piece of river with the "High
tJrldgn" over It got left out to one side
by reason of a slip of tho engraving tool,
which rendered it necessary to change
the entire course of tho Itlver niilun nr
elro spoil tho map. After having spent
t".o days In digging and gouging nt tho
map, I would have changed the course of
tho Atlantic Ocean before I would have
lust so much work.
1 never had so much trouble with anv
thing in mv llfo as I did with this map.
I bad heaps of llttlo fortifications scat
tered ail around Paris, at ilr.st, but every
noiv and then my instruments would slip
and fetch away whole miles of battered
und leave the vicinity as clean as If
the Prussians had been there.
Tho render will nnd it well to frame
tills man for future reference, so that It
may aid In extending popular Intelligence
and dispelling tho widespread Ignoinnco
of tho doy. MAIUC TWAIN.
It Is very nice, largo print,
saw. U. s. GHANT.
It places the situation In nil rntliely
now light. ISMAHt!K.
t cannot louk at It without shedding
tears. UltlOlIAM YOUNG.
It is very nice, largep rlnt. '
My wife was for years afflicted with
freckles, and though everything was
done for her relief that could bo done,
all was In vain. Hut, sir, since her iirst
glance at your map, they have entirely
left her. She lias nothing but convul
sions, now. J, .SMITH,
If I hail had the map 1 could have got
out of Metz without any trouble.
T havo seen a great many maps In
my time, but nono that this one reminds

Secretary of State Bryan on tho matter.
Secretary Bryan will take the matter up
with the t'j-esldcnt again. It already has
been made known that the delegation
would bo received If Its credentials werp

largely for tho purpose of considering
these credentials. They are understood to
boacceptable to the White House.
