ST. I.OI'IS PROSPECTS.
St. Louis has wonderful opportuni
ties to extend its trade into the marts
of the world. The opening of the
Panama Canal in the fall will make
possible the expansion of Its com
merce to rich territories heretofore
It will have accessibility to the west
ccast of South America. It will have
cheaper rates to our ports on the
Pacific coast. It will have enhanced
advantages over France and Germany.
And this because it will have use
or the Mississippi River as an outlet
to the sea. The "fourteen foot chan
nel" for the river is a possibility of
the far-away future. So St. Louis
ians have decided to make use of
the channel of the river as it is.
Steel barges and towhoats will solve
the problem of getting goods
down the river to the New Orleans
port. Of course there will be the ex
pense of changing there. Rut with
