ptovrmrntw. The Burlinston Ci-.zette contains tbe
following words of tncsuragement per
taining to the Hennepia canal:
A. citiz :n who owns river interests and
believes Tightly tbat unobstructed nsvi-
galion of the Mississippi river ami the
Hennepin canal will aid laraely to work
out tbe salvation of Burlington, ex
claimed this morning: "How few peo
pie realize the value of navigab!
stream! Only a few men in each com
munity who have heavy shipping But
to begin at tbe beginning, compare the
freight rates from this city to Chicago
and bt. Louis, together nn tbe differ
ence of the latter at the various season
of the y-Hr. The present Ir-itbt rte he
twecn Burlington and Chicago, first
class, is 47 cents B -tween Bur! ntrn
and tt. L iins the rirs-i-clssa rate is 30
cents. And the distance to St. Louis is
little further than it is to Chicago. Dur
ing the navigation season the diHerecce
is even greater as against Cnicago, as the
C, li. tic Q. railway compsnv control
all the lines from this city to St. Louis,
and it is the company's custom to make
a differential of from 4 to 6 cents per
hundred during the steamboat season in
competition with river rates between
this point and St. Louis. The same rule
undoubtcdlv holds eood on the lines run
nint; to St. Paul and Minneapolis during
me season that through navigation is
possible. Last season the abominable
condition o' the river was such that nav
igation had very little apparent influence
upon transportation rates, and the C , B
& Q. did not even allow its usual differ
ential between Burlington and Si. Louis,
"Now, I believe that the Hennepin
canal will prove in many respects as val
uable to this city as is the Mississippi
river, oecause. mougn it will furnish
rather roundabout waterway to Chicago
it will always be navigable I expect to
see the day when the railroad compas
Dies operating Detween cnicajro and
Davenport, Burlington, Muscatine. Clin
ton and Kock Island will be obliged to
run their own boats on the Mississippi
river anu tne Hennepin canal to com
pete tor the business of the upper Missis
sippi valley. The only reason the rail-
mad companies have not lontr since been
forced to adopt this method up and down
the river, ia because the government has
neglected tbe legitimate interests of the
river and navigation north and south has
never offered any serious opposition to
wnyisu, continued the reasoner
earnestly, "that the government en
always find money for canals, dikes, sub
sidies and slack water appropriations for
esstern waterways and schemers, while
its niggardly appropriation for the noblest
river in the most fertile valley of Amer
ica, is not sufficient to provide signal
ngnts atong tne snore: 1 do nt believe
6ir, the general government is half as
blamable for this outrageous neglect as
are the corg-cssmen of the Mississippi
valey. Our representatives go to Wash
ington presumably to secure legislation
for tbe benefit of their own people. It
is conceded by all that the greatest bless
ing which could just now befall Burlirg-
lon, and other town3 of the upper river.
would be increased facilities for trans
portation of raw and manufactured pro-
oucts. Ana what ao the congressmen
from the Mississippi valley do artout it?
They go to Washington, evidently. t
fiddle on a 'free 6ugar' tune or talk about
the next presidential chances or cet a
bill through for a postofPce building.
vnnen me congressmen or the ucper
Mississipoi combine to secure an annual
appropriation four times doubled for the
improvement of the west's greatest water'
way, then Burlington and her sister cities
will have advantageous freight rates and
a prosperous liver commerce. And not
