'1MPROVE.MENT OV THK OHIO
To the Editor ol the Plttfburg,CoiiimcrcIal :
In my prcviou letter I briefly eon
HiJcrcd the progress of the nation in
transportation facilities under individ
ual enterprise and governmental action ,
presenting tha population of tho coun
try for wnosd navigation tho govern
ment ha1! expended million, in con
trast with that asking the expenditure
of sufficient millions, if need be, to
render the navigation of the Ohio
what it must of necessity become, and
hould of right be made, l-'nr the at
tainment of that navigation the leading
fdans heretofore proposed have been
ocks nnd dams after the untal slack
water mothod ; a modification of that
plan, by the introduction of self-adjusting
chutes or movable sections,
raised or depretd by the action of
tho water ; reservoir, and, tatlctly, the
project of pumping n supply from lake
Krio, over an elevation of ei"lit hun
dred feet, iuto lake Uhnutiuitia, seven
miles distant, from whence through
tho Allegheny river the water would
flow into tho Ohio. Kaeli of these
plans has its opponent. as well as its
advocates. Any of these plans will
coat a large sum, or any combination
of them. It is well, therefore, before
considering tho plans, to make some
examination into population, products
resources, and wants now and in the fu
turo of the seven states of tho Ohio val
Icy, and under their sliowinj: and
other statistics arrive at the present
and prospective vuluo of tho territory
proposed to be chiefly benefitted ; and
the bearing of the improvement upon
tbd economics and profits of other sec
tions of tho I'liiou.
There aro three quite distinct pro
positions iu relation to tho cost of such
improvement of the Ohio as may be
necessary, the reply of cither of which
being in the affirmative, tho expendit
ure to attain the result becomes only
sxcondary, and tho plan which shall
most dciirably accomplish the object
sought, primary. The first of tho-e
propositions is, cau the coU of the work
be obtained from the products and pop-
lation of tho immediate state where
the -expenditure is demanded, without
being burdensome, and within a reason
able period of time '! Tho scfond, is
the work sought to be accomplished of
such a nature, of such a mecMiiy .mu
of such benefit to (he country seeking
it, as torender it obligatory on the gov
ernment in its paternal character to
make its expenditure from the general
revenues of tho nation ' Tho third is,
arc the transportation benefits sought
to be attained so intimately linked with
all the economics of the whole country
as to render it the interest of all sec
tions that the work should be done?
The direct as well as indirect beuefits
to all, compensating for the a scssmcut
of all, even to tho more direct benefit
of a portion.
As preliminary to the fact.- that may
shape the answer to these propositions.
I propose to statisically examine some
of the more salientfacts as to the growth
and resources of the seven Ohio states,
and incidentally those of ih-5 eight
By the census of 170 we find that
tho seven Ohio valley state had in that
year i:i,4 59,377 inhabitants, while the
eighteen states having territory boder-
ing on our sea coast, had lfjJIH ,1 T2 of
a population. In IhliO, when tho fu
turc nocesity of tho improvement of
thu Ohio began to bo urged, tho seven
Ohio stntes had -l,l."iti,0'j:i inhabitants,
the eighteen sea coast states H Ux-UmI
lu forty years tho census of 1R70 shows
the growth ol populate in the sea
coast states lias uccii out little over
ninety per cent, while that oj'tho Ohio
states has been two hundred per cent,
I ndcr the samo ratios, at tho end of
another forty years, the sea coast states

the Ohio states iO,2f,l:U. Should
tho progress of tho nation lie a- great
then iu the next forty years kh in the
past, the indications arc thai it may be
greater rather than los, tho sewn Ohio
states iu population and by analogy of
reasoning in wealth will ho a" p-iwerlul
an empire iu all respects as tho whole
United States now is. What then will
bo tho wants of tho.'c states for trans
portation ' What that of tho other
states of tho I'niou V What should
tho Ohio river bo made in view of
This great and unavoidable necessity
mo inuivmuai oi inirty yeatsol ago
or leas will iu all probability live to
sco. Wo all feel how rapid is tho
flight of time, and many who read this,
still in tho vigor ol life, still able to in
tluenco tho legislation of tho nation,
can look buck over forty years of bini
iiess lubors nnd iiutive piutieip ition in
'the public improvements ol the nation
If tho direct transportation wants of
fully ono-half of the present population
of the nation mo, to do met even
tweutv. or (on years from now to say
nothing of the coining millions, it
would scoin ai if u long enough time
had boou spout in wiso head. shakings
over the cost of improving the Ohio,
and temporizing oxpodients for its ae
ooaiplislimont. Jio that cost ten mill
ioin or tweuty, it cannot bo all spout iu
a day, nor all required iu a year ; and
tho few figures so far oxmniiied indicate
how disprobatiynato it is to tho pro-
ductive energies of the population
who, before the sum could be expended,
would be increasing by their toil and
their energies the national wealth and
repaying the outlay. Rut let some
further statistics bo heard.
There were in the other eight states
interested in the Ohio river iu 1SG0
about 4 8 10,793 inhabitants ; in 1S70
there C,7-12lSJ)S,orau increase ofthirty
three per cent, in the last ten years.
At the same rate of increase there will
be in forty years from 1S70, a popula
tion of l.),7.'H,'J62 inhabitants as
many as there now arc in all the coast
states, nnd half as many a there will
bo in those states forty years from now.
It also appears that nt the present time
there arciu the seven Ohio states within
ten per cjnt. of the population of the
coast states, and in the seven Ohio and
eight Mississippi states interested in
navigation of the Ohio, there is twenty
seven percent, more population than in
the seaboud states i and that in forty
years will be over fifty per cent, more,
even of thoso states, maintain the same
ratios of increase as in the past forty
The appropriation, then, of any sum
of money on the mere basis of govern
mental expenditures iu proportion to
population seems scttlod in favor of a
large appropriation for tho improve
ment of the Ohio. As tho incomes of
the government, being chiefly obtained
from tho people, would naturally, di
rectly or indirectly, be derived from
the different sections, in sums accord
ing with the bulk of their population,
ii is cviiicui mni loose siaics mosi ui
rcctly interested in tho navigation of
the Ohio, must contribute to the na
tional revenues the greatest proportion
of whatever cum may bo takon there
from to bo expended on tho improve
ment ot that river: and m like man-
tier to any improvements made on the
scacoaM or eiw.vihoro hi the national
domains. When those, then, who con
tribute so largely ask, under a grow
ing necessity, for liberal appropria
tions, out of the very revenues they so
greatly hilp to create, the equity of the
demand is plain.
Any of the plans 'proposed for the
improvement of the Ohio would most
probably consume ten years iu comple
tion. Assuming thcni to cost S.'iO.-
OOO.dOO. tho outlay would bo but
three millions a year. Is this such an
extravagant sum for more than one
half of tho whole population of the na
tion to demand for their benefit? Ami
not selfishly, as subsequent statistics
will show that the benefits of increased
navigation capacity in tho Ohio aro
not nlono to the Ohio mid Mississippi
Valoy states. Would three million a
year be thought an exorbitant sum for
tho government to expend for ten
years for the transportation wants of
the whole country? It i thought too
much to expend annually on tho navi
gation wants of the scacoast. Vet the
population of tho Ohio states alone is
now within ten per cent, of all the sea
coast states, and that of the Ohio aud
Missi-sippi states nearly thirty per
cent, greater. Would three million a
year be deemed enormous to expend
in railroads for ten years, to provide
such transportation as the Ohio will
afford to tho wJiolo population of the
nation. Has not ten times that sum
been yearly expended in the past ten
years to that end? Do not the census
ratios show that a population equal to
that ol the whole United states in
1870 will Jwithiu forty years be de
manding all tho capacity of the Ohio
and its tributaries for the internal
commerce of tne seven Ohio states
alono? Whilo under the same ratios,
within ten years, or before any. of the
plans proposed will bo fullycoiuplcted,
a populotien of over one-half tho pres
ent one of the nation will be living,toil
ing and accumulating national as well
as individual wealth within those
It is haidly probable, from the data
of any plan yet proposed for the im
provement of the Ohio to render it the
water highway it should be, that less
than 880,000,000 will bo required.
Doubtless many a wail will Lo raised in
congress and elsewhere over the enor
mity ol tho sum which it is proposed
tojnducc tho government thus to ex
pend. Is there a doubt that could tho
control of tho navigation of tho Ohio
be given to a corporation, that a com
pany would soon be formed to make
till, im, irrii.miin.it .....1 It... I vnn.li. l..1..
for their bonds or stock at tho rato'of
twice three millions a year, under tho
the ultimate returns that even the few
statistics submitted forerhadows?
The geographical position of the Ohio,
as before ob-erved, indicates what it
will have fo become under the impera-
five demands for transportation arising
from tho enormous population so soon
to fill iu v;tlluy, and the roeipocities ol
the trade of tho whole nation. Should
the government not perform the work but clearings wcro finally made, much U

galleries and the area-way for the "gutter-snipe"
were filled from au early
hour. A large number of women were
seated iu the spectator's gallery, chiefly
enjoying the spectacle as a bit of
very rude fun. .Strangers without tick
ets persisted in blocking up tho en
trance on Wall street, and turned a
deaf ear to the importunities of the
doorkeeper, who wanted to have tho
way kept clear. The roar ol the excit
ing combat was brought to their ears
from inside only to render them more
eager for admissiou. Among tho ex
cited crowd inside were all varieties of
the man of speculation. A few indi
viduals sat apart as if fearing to enter
tho daugorous whirl, although, they
were known to have boldly ventured
and heavily won at uiauy previous
tourneys of the same kind. A few oth
ers flung themselves into -the cushioned
scats about the room, as if exhausted
or wounded in the content. Hut with
out thought of these, the main crowd
surged and fought. (! roups were plant
ed about the room with hands and
voices raised, screaming into tho ears
of neighbors, and shaking two, three or
four lingers in the faces of their next
friends without cessation, except the
seconds required to jot a sale or au
item in their books. Above this up
roar the president cf the exchange sat
in immovable serenity, rising only oc
casionally to road the telegrams that
wcro fluttering in upon him. As ho
hammered on his desk the operatois j
surged like a flock of sheep to his
neighborhood and listened to tho fir.t
few words of the dispatch, and then,
impatieiit,wero away again to tho cease
less boisterous squabble. When the
names of failing firms were read there
wa sometimes a prolonged whistle and
a lengthened mutter, and when the
names of (irceulcaf, Norris and Co.
and Jacob Little mid Co. were announ
ced there was something like a wail,
for they were old and well beloved
firms on Wall streot. Rut this ebulli
tion of feeling was exceeding transient,
nnd the mob wcro in the maelstrom
again befoto the wail ceased. "In
fact,"saidan opcrntor.in one of the lucid
moments, to tho ' Lrihunc reponcr,
"there is a good deal id' brotherly cou
sideration displayed here. We feel
