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.
