KNAACK AND KLONDIKE.
Itock Idand EUer Captain Writes from
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 15 Editor
of The Aeols: The Klondike boom
is on. Evervtin? is lively here, es
pecially in tho Klondike movement.
About evory other person I meet is
going there in the spring. Some are
departing and coming all the time.
Saturday last the steamship, City of
Scattlo, camo down from Juneau,
Alaska, and hnd a large number of
Klocdikers on board. Some of them
bad been into the gold Holds, but the
majority of thorn had started late and
were unable to cross the pass and had
to como to Seattle and wait for spring.
One of the returning miners, a middle-aged
German, with whom I got
into conversation, tola me he had
not been in Klondike, but on Stuart
river ho and three others had struck
it rich, and bo had returned for
food. Numerous vessels are being
constructed here for the Yukon and
other rivers np there, but I do not
like thoir style as well as ours on
the Mississippi, and I think when I
gat my boat, the City of Rock Island,
along side of them, she will be the
queen of the fleet.
more are ail sorts 01 schemes and
movements on foot here regarding
the business up in tho cold region,
but as yet I have heard of nothing
which in my estimation will work as
well as that of our Rock Island peo
pie. I am well satisfied with my
coming out here. I gather lots of
valuable iniormation every day, and
will be qnite well posted by the time
we get reaay to start.

BRIDGE, BAR AND HARBOR
Kb la ear Edwards Taika of What la Beta
, DmalOaluir. j
The government engineers heartily
endorse tho plan of the railroad im
provement for the ehortecing of the
river bridge at Qaincy by filling ia
unaer the onage as lar out as the
big wooded sandbar. ' It will narrow
the river,' so that there will be more
water in the channel, and will hold
the big bar right where it is, instead
of allowing i to waah down into the
harbor. Secretary of War Alger will
of coarse be guided by the engineers
tn passing on the petition of the
railroad company for permission to
mi up that much or the river, and
with the engineers in favor of it there
is little doubt but that the desired
permission will be granted.
The proposition, cf the railroad
company to fill in nnder the bridge,11
said Capt. Samuel Edwards, of this
city, the officer in charge of that sec
tion of the river, to a Qaincy Whig
reporter, "is right in line with the
plans of the government for the im
provement of Qaincy harbor, and in
stead 0! being a possible injury to
this harbor it would be a positive
and decided benefit. It would be
accomplishing by the construction of
what you might call a high dam
what the engineers propose to ac
complish by a small dam."
'When a bar is too large to le
dredged away,11 went on Capt. Ed
wards, "and is in a convenient place
to be left, the policy of the engineers
is to hold it. The plan for disposing
of the bar at Qainoy is to tie it to the
bay island by a dam and allow the
insido to fill np, thus making it a
part of the island. Then protect the
outside edge by riprap, and that bar
is fixed permanently. The proposl
rion of the railroad company is right
in line with our plans, for they also
propose to make the bar a part of
the island. When I was in Rock Isl
and, Col. King, who is in charge of
this division of the river, asked mo
about the railroad project, and I told
him just what I have told you. If I
thought the filling in would at all in
terfere with navigation I would not
think of endorsing it. Filling ia
ander the bridge will at least hold all
of that portion of the bar above the
bridge right where it is. and we
would have no further trouble with
it." . i: V
Capt. Edwards expressed this opin
ion while standing on the new dike
which he is building across the rivor
irom Qumcy. It is 1,800 feet long,
and la 1,600 feet below the old dike.
The purpose of its construction is to
throw more of the current over to
the Illinois side and wash out the
sand bar which now obstructs the
steamboat landing. Work on the
new dike was commenced a weok
ago, and it will be finished in an
other week. It will cost about
$5,000, bet none of it will come out
of the $10,C00, appropriated fur
areagiug the harbor. It is a part of
the general plnn, and the cost will bo
taken out of the general attpropria'
tion. Five thousand dollars were
spent last fall in dredging that bar.
and the other f 5,000 will be spent in
dredging what sand may not be
scoured out by the current deflected
to this :de by the new dike.
iae Whig says: "Through the
courtesy of Uow E. Gwinn,
a Vhg man met Capt. Ed
wards on the now dike yesterday.
