One Involving the Mlnisnlppi and Missouri
Rivers and Hennepin Canal.
With the coming of warm weather
work will be resumed on the Henne
pin canal, and it will le pushed
further toward completion. The
linking of the Mississippi .with the
lake will he brought nearer a reality
ami some new and substantial stuf
fing will be put into our claims to the
attention of the world on the score of
Another scheme that has been dis
cussed in these columns is apparently
being carried forward to something
like a solution of the difficulties that
have hedged its way for years. That
is the project of carrying Mississippi
freights and passengers up the Mis
souri. If they can be carried up
they can be carried clown that stream.
With the completion of the Hennepin
canal what will there be to hinder
the loading of Nebraska grain onto
barges in the region where that
freight originates, towing it thence
by the way of the Missiouri, the
Mississippi and the Hennepin to Chi
cago? This, at least, is the question
the enthusiasts are asking. Here is
a St. Louis local item of large and
important interest in that connec
tion: A St. 1 U View.
'A special meeting of the board of
directors of the Missouri liiver Trans
portation company has been called at
Kansas I'it v for Friday, March 10, to
deeide how many boats will be used
the'comir.g season. t'apt.E. A, Phil

ger of the company, has just returned
from St. Louis where arrangements
have been made to bring out the A.

Phillips was once part owner of the
steamers Montana and Dakota when
they plied the Missouri river, and he
says they can be operated now at
a profit, and yet at such a rate as to
give merchants an advantage over
the railroads. Merchants are prom
ising larger tonnage this year than
ever before. It is generally believed
that Capt. Phillips will make a
marked success of the line, as he is
experienced in the business, and ex
perience has hither to been wanting
in the management. Capt. rhillips.
while here a few days since, thought
it would not be advisable to handle
any way freights, taking through
cargoes to Kansas City. This would
cover the expense of a deck crew and
several days' time. Capt. Phillips
said he would by this arrangement
be able to makeeightday trips, while
heretofore the time consumed has
been 13 to 15 days.
