future. The first experimental
boat waa launched in NcwOrlennb
last week, and will bo put in fcur-
vice' as soon as poesible. It Is a
rc-modellcd boat, adapted to heavy
tonnage with a light draft and
equipped for such service as is
possiolo on tho river in its present
unimproved condition. As the
contemplated improvements are
made in the river tho boats will be
improved in type and capacity.
At arccont meeting of the directors
and stockholders of the company
Mr. Dickey explained in detail the
pans adopted by the board of
directors for periectlug. the great
work he has in hand and they w ro
most heartily approved. At the
close of the meoting those present
showed theit confidence in Mr.
Dickey's plans by adopting, with
out a dissenting vote, a resolution
indorsing his policy, which is to
experiment and build securely lor
the future, instead of putting a
fleet of unsuitable boats on the
river at once, and possibly ruin
ing the enterprise for all time.
