Nkw Oklkans, March 2. At n moot
ing of tho Chamber of Commorco hold
this ovonlng tho following prcamblo nnd
resolutions were adopted ;
"Whkusas, Tho congrosa of tbo United
Statot has now under consideration tho
subject ot removing tho obstruction to
navigation nt tbo mouth or tbo Mlcslsslppl
"WllKRgAB, Dalay in tbo execution of
the most feasiblo plan is highly injurious
to tho commercial interosts of Now Or
loam and tho whole Mississippi valley;
"WiiKUKAK, Aftor it long and patlont
sclontlllu Investigation by this Chamber
of various methods proposed, It ia of
opinion that tho report of n majority of
thu United H tales Engliioorlng Hoard, alx
out of seven, endorsed by A. A. Humphreys)
llrig, Ono., chief uf engineer?, should bo
promptly adoptod by Congress, lm It
Kesolved, Tliat tho Chamber of Com
merce of Now Orloaiis, earnestly reiterate
their frequent endorsement of the Kurt fit
I'hlllipps canal project.
Second, '1 hat tho conlblenco horetnforo
entertained by this Chamber ns to the
practicability, economy, permanency of
the commercial value ol this canal, Is great
ly incrcnied by the mnjority report of
tho nbovfl mentioned committee.
Third, That tho peculiar national char
acler of any Improvement of thu mouth
of tho Mississippi river makoa It uf the
llrst importune 0 that they

protest against thn letting out of any such

Fourth. That we recognize tho Hoard
of Engineers ns a board of equals nnil thnt
thu voice of alx or seVrfn mun, especially
who nro endorsed by tho chiol of En

and details, many surveys nml (stimnto
upon which congress In tho past made ap
propriations for publio works and that
any errors and omissions of detail can

that past cxporioucu oilers no Inducement
