The New Orleans Picayune recently
gave expression to its astonishment
that the Mississippi "line
on each bank with wealthy States
and populous and prosperous cities"
should be so destitute of water craft
of any sort. It is drawback to the
"trade and commerce that the fact
should be as the Picayune records
but what of the Ohio? Wealthy
though the Mississippi River States
may be, the Ohio River States surpass
them with wealth so marvelous
that the amount required to accomplish

The "Statistical Abstracts of the
United States" for lOO.") issued by
the Department of Commerce and
Labor gives these figures of the
wealth of the Six Ohio River States:
Pennsylvania, $9,313,140,116: Illinois,
$0,976,476,400: Ohio, $5,

West Virginia, $659,632,351,

bears to the total wealth of the forty-five

be appreciated, from the fact that the

which is reasonable but imperative
at one and the same time. They are
entitled to the cheapest possible
method of transportation to a market
and the amount required to give
them the facilities to which they are
entitled is insignificant when weighed
in the balanco with their products.
Unity of action in the Ohio Valley
will bring about the Nine Foot
Stage and the Nine Foot Stage will
bo the greatest possible factor in advancing
the deservedly commanding
position of the Ohio Valley a the
richest Valley in the world, notwithstanding
its present lack of transportation
facilities. With those facilities
supplied by the improved Ohio,
the development and wealth of the
Six Ohio River States would double
within a quarter of a century.
