There haa never been a greater de
mand for appropriations, but notwith
standing the fart that no river and lr
bor bill was passed for the IWnl year
ending June 30, Ihihi, Hiid many iniK.r
tant works were hiipended for want of
money, yet the committee did not deem
it advisable to recommend for jMuuwije
of a bill which would he regarded aa
excessive in the amount appropriated.
The largest appropriation in the bill is
for the Mississippi river, for which the
sum of :.Vf2,iKi has lieen recommend
ed. While this sum eems large, yet the
river is a wonderful river, watennir one
of the richest and iwwt. productive val
leys in the world, and the entire coun
try is interested In ita improvement;
and certainly the ten states which bor
der on its bank have a deep interest in
For the Missouri river the committee
have recommended an appropriation of
900,000, with a view of beginning a
thorough and systematic improvement
of the river, commencing at the mouth;
and have made no reonuimendatioiiK for
any, localities on the river, leaving it,
however, to the discretion of the ecre
tary of war to apply such portion of the
amount appropriated in the protection of
harbors and localities on the river as he
may deem advisable.
In the river and harbor bill of August,
1fiS8, 11,000,000 waa appropriated for
this river, f 775,000 of which were ex
pended at various localities ou the river,
and only $2 M.000 were left for the gen
eral improvement of the river. This tho
Missouri river comuiisMon seem to have
regarded, and very justly, as an aban
donment of the improvement of the
river, and the committee commends
what the commission say upon this sub
ject to the house, adding if the Missouri
river is to be improved it it time that a
thorough and systematic course of im
provement was commenced.
Illinois anal Mississippi Ship Canal.
The committee have recommended an
appropriation of toOO.OOO fori lie purswe
of commencing the construction of the
Illinois and Misnissiiipi canal, to connect
the upiier Mississippi river with
tho hike system of navigation.
and thus give to the northwest and to
the east a continuous water line oi trans-
Sirtatlon from the head waters of the
ississippi river to the Atlantic sea
board at the citv of New York,
The committee's reisirt conclnded aa
follows: "The retains received from all
over the country and especially from
memlwrs of the house, show very grati
fying results from the improvements
which are being curried on throughout
the country. There is not only a large
increase of commerce on the improved
rivers and water ways, but a great re
duution of freight rates hare followed
their improvement; and your committee
feel confident, after a long and patient
investigation of the subject, that there is
no money exiended by the government
which is so much in the interest of the
neoule aa that exiiended in the improve
ment of the water ways of the country."
Oblo Veterans of tUm Msxlcan War Tblnk
Ha Unserves a Monument.
Wakhinuton, May ii. The Ohio
veterans of the Mexican war are ag
grieved over the fact that no statue has
been erected in this citv in memory of
their gallant leader, Zachary Taylor.
Senator oorhees has presented a
memorial from those veterans which is
worded as follows:
The Ohio veterans of the Mexican
war, on this, the fourty-fonrth annivers
ary of the victories achieved liv .senary
Taylor on the fields of I'alo Alto and
Kesaca de la i'alma. have learned with
sorrow and regret, that while the
National capital is everywhere orna
mented with splendid monuments to
military hen-, one may look in vain
for a cenotaph for Zachary Taylor,
than whom our republic has produced
no braver or more skillful cencrnl."
"Therefore, this ns-vuiion. at its
largest reunion, respect I'.illy ask con
gress to do justice to the memory of
Zachary Taylor and to his surviving
omrades in anus, by causing to lie
erected a monument worthy of Ins great
deeds and of the glory of Die republic."

SUBSTITUTE FOR THE TARIFF BILL.
By Suoh Action the Senate Plnanea Com
mittee Hopes to Ksrllllata Matters.
Washisoths. May -.'J. It is the pres
ent intention of members of the senate
liniince committee to rejsirt a substitute
for the McKiuley taritf 1411 when their
consideration of that uieusuro shall have
lieen completed. This course is deemed
to be better than to reisirt the bill as it
came from the house with amendments.
Fur, when it ),'.. into conference, there
will be but one question to settle instead
of a myriad of ililicrencea on points in
detail. This was the course pursued
with the tariff bill of ls:, and it was
found to result in ti saving of time. The
finance committee will endeavor to
maintain its deteriiiiuaiion not to give
oral hearings to any interested parties;
but it was reported to-day that iiuTt
ers of several cities to the nuiuls-rof
i.000 will come to Washington next week
demanding to U- heard. If any such
uumlier, or even a smaller one, appears
in a Is sly it is probable that the com
mittee will open it disirs to the rupre-elitutive.
