MOVE TO DISBAND
Upper Mississippi Pilots' Asso
1 ciation to Close Up
DAYS OF USEFULNESS OVER
PASaiiig of Organization That Once
Wawa Power on the Hirer
Within the next 0 days a meeting
will be called of the upper Mississippi
river .pilots to be held for the pur
pose of disbanding the organization.
The event is one which will not be
hailed with, pleasure by those remain
ing of the original association. The
organization was at f ne time the
strongest of its kind on the entire
ijver and its members were the only
ones who hail a clear conception of
the liver. Capt. Jrscph Ruisson, pres
ident f the association, and Master
John Day, secretary and treasurer,
are now both aboard boat below Rur-
lington, but will both be present at
the Winona meeting anil assist in the
disbanding. There is u considerable
amount of money in the treasury,
which it is thought will be placed in
a fund to be used for the support and
assistance of aged pilots and their
widows and families.
The reason triven for the disband
ing of the association is that the raft
Ing and general boating has declined
to such a degree that the original pur
pose of the association has been lost,
and therefore there is no further bus
iness to be transacted by the organ
A Power In Kitrly Day.
An one lime the association had a
most powerful influence on the traffic
of the river and the annual conven
tions were hailed with delight along
the river, where everything was given
over to a day of enjoyment when the
meetings were held. A number of
conventions have been held in thi lo
cality, and memories of these meet
ings are recalled with delight by
pilots who make this city their home.
Several of the members of the asso
ciation still reside here, who will go
to the meeting and take part in the
movement which will remove from
the river 'one of the strongest factors
that has ever been known.
One of the original intentions of
the association was for the ln-tter
protection and for the guidance of the
river pilots. The - rapidly changing
course f.f the stream rendered it ex
tremely doubtful whether a boat
could fellow the same course in going
up the rivef that it did in coming
flown. Old pilots tell with irlee of
farmers who have purchased proper
ty in Iowa and the next morning
found themselves residents of Illinois.
While this, perhaps, is an exaggera
tion, there are numberless instances
of changing sandbars, s-nags. new cur
rents and other unlookcd for obstruc
tions which' were the bane of the
In order to protect themselves and
their, boats, the pilots' association
was organized ami a unique plan
formed for the guidance f.f members
f the organization. Pilots on the u-
going boats made notations of each
change in the course of the stream,
of the sandbars, and everything cal
culated to be of .valuable information
to the down-going pilot. Whenever a
boat was met with going down the
river, and the pilot was a memlier of
the association, the two pilots ex
changed information as to the sec
tion of stream through which they
d just passed, thus keeping to
themselves a system of river knowl
edge which made them wizards of the
rier. In addition to this important
feature of the association there were
fit hers of perhaps as much value in
the way of insurance and benefit
funds, making the association ai fac
tor among boat owners which could
not be flisensed with. An owner
would not trust his steamer with any
other than a member of the pilots as-
social ion, because of the danger from
river obstructions, and thus the pow
er was established. Hut few members
remain of the original association.
