We Handle Cut Flowers For All Occasions BILL PHUT A TRAHS-FLOIIIDA Washington, Jan. 29 Survey un der direction of the secretary of war for a canal from Cumberland sound on the Atlantic seaboard to the mouth of the Mississippi river would be au thorized under a bill introduced by Representative Clark, Democrat, Florida, and reported - favorable to day by the house committee on rail ways and canals. An appropriation of 50,000 would be made for this purpose. The project contemplates the build ing of a sea level canal from the At- lantic across Georgia and Florida to St. George's sound on the Gulf of Mexico, southwest . of Tallahassee, Fla. From St. George's sound the existing natural inland waterway would be opened up along the north ern edge of the Gulf of Mexico west ward past Mobile bay and through lakes Borgne and Pontchartrain to the Mississippi river at New Orleans. The proposed canal would be about 265 miles in length, but by use of ex isting navigable waters, it was esti mated that not more than 150 miles would have to be excavated. Such a waterway, it was estimated would save 497 miles between New Orleans and New York and 412 miles from New Orleans to Liverpool. Under the provisions of the bill the secretary of war would be re quired to report to congress on the cost of constructing a sea level ship canal of such dimensions as to ac commodate the largest sea going vessels, and also a lock canal of the same size, and a barge canal of such dimensions as to accommodate the largest barges being used for the carriage of freight on any waters of the United States.
