MAJ. MACKEKZIE'S PLANS
Allotments and Estimates for River
What He Proponew to do With the
600.000 Appro pi iatloo Plaee4 to
II in Haetds-.-Plan t tJepalro.
Maj. Alex Mackectie, in charge of the
river improvements tetwecn Minneapo
lis and the Dea Moinos rapids, has com
plettd his plans and estimates for work
along tbat portion of the Mississippi
under bis supervision during the coming
uason. It will be romembcrad that the
Major has ? 600, 000 at bis disposal this
year, that being the e mount provided for
lo the river and barb r bill, passed by
congress August 1 1, 1 ist. Of this amount
a stipulation was mide that 818.000 be
used for the survey t f the rapids pro
jects and estimates of the proposed lat
eral canal of the Roc Inland rapids. A
good sized block of t lis amount has al
ready been expended for the purpose. Of
the remainder, the bulk of the appro
priation, Maj. Mackenzie has made tbe
following apportionments for improve
ments of tbe plant:
For tbe construction of two wooden
lauBches at a cost of 4, 000 each, f 8.000;
construction of one itel steam launch.
f 0 000; construction of one pile driver,
$2 500; construction of steam drill boat,
Then for river work the major has al
lotted $03,000 for work on the Mississip
pi between St. Paul and Prescott, thirty
miles, including a 'ving dam and shore
protection under the adopted project:
the work to be done by tbe government
fleet in charge of Cait. Durham.
For work between Reeds Landing and
Fountain City, wing dams, etc., $50,000;
to be done by conirt.ct.
For work at the head of Lake Pepin,
jettres, etc., 865.00C; to be done by the
For work in the vicinity of Winona,
Minn., $50,000; lo lie done by the gov
ernment. For work in the viciuity of Crooked
Slough, $5,000; to be done by the gov
For work between Fairport and Mus
catine, eight miles, $33,000; to be done
For work in tbe v cinily of Keitlisburg,
eight miles, $50,000; to be done by con
tract. For work in the v ciulty of Fart MadU
son, four miles, $18,000; to be dons by
Forwork in the vicinity of Pontoosa,
$50,000; by tbe government fleet.
Mayor Mackenzie has reserved $16,
0ti for dredges; $10,000 for surveys and
$13,000 for repairs. This makes a total
of about $300 000 projected for, while
$25,000 is reserved for river improve
ments between St. P aul and Minneapolis
and $40,000 for the Rock Island rapids,
the plans of which are not perfected;
leaving a balance of the appropriation of
about $50,000 for etaeriiencies.
At meeting of the St. Paul chamber
of commorca. recently, from which body
emanated, during tue lust pirt of the
winter, resolutions reflecting seriously
and in a manner wholly unwarranted
upon the work of Maj. Maokenzie,
resolutions were presented expunging
the former resolutioja from tbe records,
and the following resolution, prepared
by Hon. II. F. Hi evens, waa adopted
Reolvd, That our senators and re pre
sentatives in congress be and they are
hereby respectfully requested to urge
continued and increased appropriations
for the improvement of tbe navigation of
the upper Mississippi river, to the end
that the labors of tie Lnited States engi
neer corps may cot be crippled and
thwarted by the laci of adequate means
to carry on their work.
As to the Invention of Capt. Bell, out
of which grew the reflections upon Maj.
Mackenzie, the cuanber adopted this res
olution: Besotted. That tie attention of the
United States engineer officers is respecU
fully called to an it vention of Capt. Ed
win Bell, of St. laul. consisting of a
process of removing bars and a mechan
ical device for that purpose, with a view
to their employment if deemed practica
The appended resolution of general in
terest waa also adopted:
Resolved, That ocr senators and repre
sentatives in congr 88 he, and they here
by are, respectfully requested to secure
the early passage or au act effectually
forbidding the dumoage in or upon tbe
shores of the Mississippi river above the
Des Moines rapids of any subject calcu
lated to obstruct lb; navigation of laid
And it might have been added particu
larly about St. Paul, for Maj. Mackenzie
has iniisted from tie first if the channel
waa not clear in tht t vicinity it had been
clogged up by dump boats. The resolu
tion last published therefore accepts bis
version and endorses his viewa. The
resolutions are a complete vindication of

THE LITTLE HIGH CHAIR.
Scene That Brought Tears to the Old
There was an auction at one of the down
town auction houses recently. A pale, sad
faced woman. In a plain calico gown, stood in
a crowd. The loud voiced auctioneer finally
came to a lot of plain and somewhat worn
furniture. It had belonged to the plain
woman, and was being sold to satisfy the
mortgage on it. One by one tbe articles were
sold, the old bureau to one, the easy rocker
to another, and a bedstead to a third.
Finally the auctioneer hauled out a child's
high chair. It was old and rickety, and as
the auctioneer held it up everybody laughed
everybody except the pale faced woman.
A tear trickled down her check. The auc
tioneer saw It, and somehow a lump seemed
to come up hia throat, and his grufT voice
grew soft He remembered a little high chair
at home, and jhow it had one rilled his life
It was empty now. The baby laugh, the
two little hands that were once held out to
greet "papa" from that high chair were gone
forever. He saw the pale faced woman's
piteous looks and knew what it meant; knew
that in her eye tho little rickety high chair
was more precious than if it had been made
of gold and studded with diamonds. In im
agination he could see the little dimpled
cherub which it once held; could see the
chubby little fist grasping the tin rattle box
and pounding the chair full of nicks; could
see the little feet which had rubbed tho paint
oft the logs; could hear the crowing and
laughing in glee and now, the little high
chair was empty.
He knew there was an aching void in the
pale faced woman's heart; there was in his
own. Somehow the day may ootue and go,
but you uever get over it. There is no one tc
dress in the morning, no one to put to bed at
uight "Don't laugh!" said the auctioneer,
softly, os somebody facetiously offered ten
ceuts; "mauy of you have little empty high
chairs at home which money would not tempt
you to part with." Then he handed the clerk
a bill out of bis own pocket and remarked,
"Sold to the lady right there," and as the
pale faced woman walked out with tbe little
high chair clusped in her arms, and tears
streaming down her checks, the crowd stood
back respectfully, and there was a suspioiom
moisture in tbe eyes of the man who had bid
ten cents. Detroit Free Press.
Ia Blizzard Land
North Dakota, according to the tempera
ture maps, is the coldest part of the United
States. This Is accounted for by the fact
that there ar no mountains to break Um
f orco of the storms originating in the arctic
regions. From Manitoba they como rushitu:
and howling into our territory with great
force, packing tho sand like snow so firmly
that now formed drifts four or five foot high
will bear the weight of horstH.
During one of thus) blizzards it is impos
sible to be comfortable out of doors, even
when tho mercury docs not fall below zero.
Tho snow pack into the clothing so that so
shaking will dislodgo it, and the sharp par
ticle cut like gluis or tm-X It is impossible
to face such a storm, and irnons aad horses
naturally turn their 'aevstrom the bhwt, and
doing u, even in the slightest decree, causes
them to liwe their way on tho plains.
The snow looks exactly like granulated
sugar; we never see it fall in large, feathery
flakes, as it does in oibur parts of tho country.
When it sndws it invariably blows, and every
building, huge or small, has itu circle oi
Occasionally for two or throe days at a
rimo the uorth wind will take the snow flying
past, and apparently not a grain of it touches
tho gixmud. Straight south it will go in such
manses that you caiiuot seo an object a low
rods from you; theain-afow days the south
wind will hurl another mass baok to th
north. Cor. Philadelphia Tiruae.
