TALK OF ABANDONING
THE MISSOURI RIVER
Uouse Committee, at Special Ses
sion, Showed Little Friendli
ness Toward Uijr Muddv.
WahinKton. Dec. 12. Tli Houf Ilier
and Harbor Committee held a special mi-et-lng
to-nti;lit to he.tr arcuments for the im
proemnt of the Mlfnourl Illver.
Strong pleas inre made by Hepreentatlves
"ochran and Sh-el: lford of Missouri and
Curtis of Kanvii. Mr. Sh.tckelford devoted
mot of hl! arjrament to the general merit
of the projoItion, while Mr. Ov-hran plead
ed for an rmtrgency appropriation for St.
.loppDh, and Mr Curtis asked for more
money for AtchNnn.
The questions H-!;cd liv the member of the
eommltt-'. and especially by Chairman Bur
ton, snowed plainly that tre Missouri River
has vcrv few friend? in tiiat nrgnnlzitlon.
Some of the commlttrrmrn even talked :m
if they thought It advisable to abolish the
Missouri Hiver Commission and wholly
ab. union the stream as a means of trans
portation. Mr. Coehran made the point lh-it the In
tcrest immediately Involved would fare bet
ter if this were done. unlefH the 5oernment
make" more liberal appropriations in tho
future than have been made in tho past. If
the Government should abandon this work,
sild Mr. Cocl'ran, ami allow the States to
look after It. the channel would be kept ln
better control and the streim woold more
Illrelv be kept open to navigitlon.
When Chairman Hurton called att"ntlon
to the fart that the tonnagn of the river
Is constant! v diminishing, and that, there
fore. It no longer paid the Government to
hrenil money for its Improvement. Mr.
Cochran declared that the chief benefit of
the river at present to the commerce of
Missouri. Kansas and Nebraska, is that, as
long -is the Government continues to appio
Jiriate monej for its Improvenipnt. rallread
freight rates aro kept tloun, for fear that
tratilc might be cut Into by the establish
ment of --tenmbont lines
Mr. Cochran added that millions of dol
lars of property were threatened by the n
roachments of the river at Ft. Joseph, and
that this constituted an emergen-!', which
could be met. imd r present clreumstaneei,
only by a Government npnroprl.ition.
Though the members of the committee did
not talk at all favorably at to-night's meet

Washington, Dlc 12. I'ressuto has become
so gnsit that the House Committee on Riv
ers and Harbors has conclude-.l that thero
must bo a scaling down of the amount In
each Item which will be re-porte-d favorably.
The amount ot tlie reduction. It Is said, will
be about KJ jt cent.
The general policy of the committee will be
to lueliide as many Items us is practicable
without swelling the total of tho bill undulv.
In order to do this they think It better to
cut the amount close Iv In each e-ase. Thus
they will be able to make up a bill of numer
ous items for a ilxcd total, rather than of
Ii-sst items reaching the same aggregate-.
Thty hope In this way to be ablo to do
something for nearly all the most urgent
projeets submitted to them and at the sanw
time avoid bitter attacks on the bill by
members who would bo disgruntled by fail
ure to get any portion of the Items In which
their districts are Interested.
Whatever may he the action of the House,
hovve-ver. it is probable that the Senate will
take- rare of many Items Ii ft out In the- other
lody by adding them to the sundry civil bill.
Numerous public buildings will be provide!
tor. also, in tlie same- manner. In f ict. the-ro
aro indications that the sundry civil bill this
winter will contain Items covering a gn-at
variety of subjects tlie appropriation- fur
which have be-en omitted ln the bills usually
providing for them.
