lie proceeded to explain the laws that
control the phenomena ot tho Misslssip-
fti river, how to reclaim the overflow
and? and make them lit and usetul lor
cultivation to generations yet unborn.
Captain Eads started at one ol tho maps
by calling attention to the line represent
ing the surface slope of the river. That
slope, in Hood time, Is one of the most
important factors in tho river problem.
He described the rise ot the slope irom
the bead of tho passes to New Orleans
and tho mouth ot lted river, thawing
that the river slope Increases rapidly on
to Cairo and St. Lotus.
TniS SUHFACE SLOl'U
Is the most Important thing to consider;
the flood slope must bo lowered, and
then you can do away with the levees.
Ht. Louis 18.408 teet in height abuvu the
Gull ot Mexico; this indicates the measure
of force which Impels the current on
ward. Tho slope at -ew Orleans Is
, 1 14100 inches; ut St. Louis it is
nix inches per mile. One would Mippnsc
that the current of the river at St. Louis
would be much greater than at New Or-
. leans, but this Is not so; this Is because
the friction ol tho water against the bed
in the upper part ol the river. Alter the
flood slope, the question of friction Is tho
next great clement, to consider. Captain
Kads explained the friction problem iiv

discharge Its sediment. The normal
width of the river is about half a mile,
and there is always found, in such width
at least, a depth of thirty leet. Where
it -wldecs out you find Islands and
shoals, and such places are always the
home ot the snags and stumps. Shoals
are generally found In high waters. The
river- scours Its bed out in narrow parts
and drops the 1 sediment la the wider

THIS IS TUB NATURAL LAW.
The excessively wldo places in the river
are the cause ol the mischiefs, aud these
wido places, when Inclosed by levees,
cause the levees to cavo in and cut-oils
are mado. You cannot reyctt the banks
of the Mississippi, it is too big a thing
lor that. It will do la smaller rivers.
The remedy tor all the trouble is to bring
these wide places to an approximate uni
formity. Cover the sandbars lu them
w ith brush and ttono dams; these ob
structions would cause a deposit of sand
between them and cuuo the waters to
deepen the channel. The work should
go on anually, oullding them up higher
and higher each year. It Is simply a
high water treatment. When tho river
is brought to a uniformity of width,
vou will tind very little cavlog. Below
Hed river there is yesy little caving gi
ing on. A uniformity in width means a
uniformity in current aud uuiformity in
carrylngsediiiient. To-day a channel ol
twenty-six feet In depth, la through the
jetties, except for about 355 feet at its
mouth; but tliu untforniitv of current
now through the jetties will scour that
obstruction out. It Is wisdom to treat
the river lu such a way as to avoid tho
necessity of levees altogether. The tirst
elicit ot an outlet is lo lower tho Hood
slope, but the result is bail and dauger
ous. He described Cubit's crevasse, be
low New Orleans, and another break
called tho 'Jump," which was formed
thirty-live years ago. Tho river llows
more sluggishly below crevasses, or out
lets, und a deposit below them is the
result. The crevasses should be closed,
and the slope would at once be lowered.
Closiugsouthwest pass und.pass a'Loutre
would result in lowering the Hood line ol
the Mississippi river boiuo two leet all
thd way up lo Cairo. Tho South pass
curries out only ono-tenth ot tho waters
of the river, which is sutllcient lor it. it
was not intended that it should carry out
all the waters ol the river, it you dimin
ish the size ol tho Mississippi, you raise
the slope ultimately. This is a natural law.
As long as you leave the wide places,
you cannot hope lor any untormity in
depth or improvement in the river. The
friction is tue chief element that retards
the How of tho water, and this Is greater
in proportion to the width oi bed in con
tact with the water, thence a steeper
slopo is created by the depositing aetiou
of the river at all tho wido places. When
these are reduced to their normal width
the bed will he deepened and the slope
lowered, and levees rendered less uecos

must ultimately be abandoned, because
it requires the wido and shallow spaces
in tho river, which are the fruitful und
only cause of caving banks and cut-oils,
to bo inclosed whhiii tho levees, ond
hence the cuvmg and cut-oils must con
tinue and the destruction oi the levees
must toilow. Once btiug the nighs
water channel to an approximate cni
tormity ot width and the caviiiL; t..f the
banks will be reduced to iusigniiic'int
proportions. Narrowing the wide places
is a thing much easier accomplished than
tho rip-rapping or mattressiug of the
banks, because it requires no work to tie
dono except In shallow water. Where
the river is deep It is already narrow.
The great objection to tho levee system,
ho argued, is not the present amount
needed tor absolute protection from the
near Hoods, lor four or live millions
would insure this, but It is tho levees
which must cave lu from the cause above
named. Kemovo that cause and the
levees can be cheaply maintained, but
when the causo of the caving is removed
tho Hood slope of the river would bo
found to bo lowered, and therefore the
levees would bo useless. The cost of
such a system of Improvement is a mere
nothing to the value ot the benelits
which wouiu tiow irom It. It Is bring
