VAH HORN'S SPEECH On tlio MUslKftiiipl Illicr Improve ment Ouilcln Kcfiulrrd mi tlio Loner Kit or. In his speech about tho Mississippi lliver Mr. Van Horn, nttor demonstrating that tho problem of tho lower river was too much water, hocontlnuodi "Wo know that tho money already appro priated has not boon oxponded bocauso tho flood-waters havo been In tho way. Now, wo contend that it tho rlvor had havo had moro discharging capacity tho waters would liao been within tho banks nnd that monoy havo been expended for tbo uso IntomloJ. And why not open moro discharging capacity! What is Tlio C'iiiino of the OaerllovtH of tho Lower Mississippi It Is, stating It broadly, bocauso tho mouths of tho rtvor aro not big enough. This fact comes from two causes, tho slow current near tho sen and tho consequent precipitation of sand nnd mud held In suspension. Those causes lcsult In narrowing tho chaunol as It approaches tho sea. Tho fact that by nctual measurement tho Inflow nt nvorago Hoods nt Cairo Is 1,175,000 cubic feet of wator por soc ond, and that after receiving tho waters of nil rlvirs below, tliollow at Now Orleans tsonly 1,100,000 cubic feet por second, tolls tho story of tho disastrous nnnunl overflows. Tills sur plus water must go soraowhero, nnd tho only jilacoforltls to overflow tho ndjacont coun try. To conllnu this lmmonso flood of waters within nrtlllclnl walK built of tho mud tho river takes up and carries down to choko up Its own discharge, Is, I submit, ono of thoso stupendous follies which sometimes tasclnnto men merely from tho fact of tholr magultudo and from tho a list Hums nf Money Imolved. "That new mouths will draw on tho water Just In ratio with tholr capacity Is ns platan proposition as thatn barrel of wator wll. bo depleted by opening thobung-holo. Tlio river below New Orleans, with a fall of 1 Inchos to tho mile, has n How of (I feet In a socond. Tho proposed Lnko Dorgno outlot, with a fall nt 2 3 5 feet to tho mile, would ha on correspond ing Incrcaso of current ami consouuontdls. charging capacity, liut only calculating tho now at in reel por second, with n wiuinni i. mllo and 10 fcot dcop, Us dlschargo would bo 528,2111 cubic fcot of wator per secon J, or ono third of tho wholo Inflow at Cairo. Hut tho cuirent would bo moro than 20 foot por soo ond,orncnpaclty nearly equal to tho wtolo rlv cr at Cairo. Tho moro statomont of tho llg urcs shows tho nmplo charactorot tho pro posed outlot for tho dralnagool tho htghost Hood ever known. "Why then Is this Ncir.r.ildcnl lMnii Opposed? It Is upon tho assumption that If you let tho water out through thrso now mouths tlio chan nel will bo shoalod. No othor objection having nny practical bearing can bo made, or can bo urged to stand n moment, In vlow of tho dtrfor rneo In cost tho outlot bolng ostlmatod nt $250,000, tho other plan nt $50,000,000. Is tho objection a valid ono? "I contend Hint it Is not only without sup port lu fact, but Is Ilnscd Upon n I'nlfio Assumption as to what tho outlet plan Is. Thoso outlets only proposo to drain tho ilood-wntcrs, not to raako now river channols. Whon tho river Is within Its bnnks now, navigation li Just as desired. All tho outlots proposo Is to keop tho water from overflowing tho banks. How, then, when tho. river Is within Its banks, or bank-full. In October, nnd nt Its maximum ox ccllcnco for navigation, can It bo dostructlvo to navigation whon, In precisely tho samo condition, In March or July I Thnt Is all tho outlets proposo to do to koop tho river nt this maxtmum at nil Beacons. They nro not doop enough, and cannot bo mado doop onough, to affect tho normal channel of tho river or tho quantity of wator In It. Or, In other words, tho channel of tho outlet Is 10 foot dcop, whllo tho river channel at tho outlot is 100 feet dcop. How Is this outlot to drain tho river dry or shoal It? It simply draws off tho flood-watcts, leaving tho normal channel un affected. Hut v, o aro not let t to thoory. Tho United Stales topographical engineers by moa surement at crevasses ha o demonstrated that tho operation of These OpenliifrM Actually Deepen tho chaunol below tho point of outlet. And this Is exactly what Is claimod for Its offitct that tho river conllnod within Its banks by Its lucrrnstd current deepens Its chaunol. "I beg tho Uouso tn remembor ono fact, that tho advocates of tho outlet systom havo only assumed ono thing tho moro cost of making it. Ki cry othor fact connected with It Is from tho UlrrlicNt Kiicliioorlinr Authority over known In this country; Is copied from tho oniclal report of tho board of engineers of tho Army of surveys and Investigations malo under tho authority of Congress during ft pro tractcd period of ten years, embracing ovory thing connected with tho rtvor at high and low water, as to loco rind cmbnnlcmonts, naviga tion, currents, ths bed of tho l Ivor, Its Hoods, and all phenorr jn.a. Wo assumo nothing; wo havo no theories, no experiments, no hypothe ses; simply tho fact Tlint Wilier Ilnus Iloivn Hill, lliatltlsnot comprcsslblo; thoso roonforcod 08 to results by asccrtalnod facts by tho most thoroughly applied eclcntlllo mothods. "Ana wnat isiuo plan hero proposou? x.ot mo stato It simply. As now, tho rlt or has bo low New Orleans n curronl that moves over n bed with n fall of IX Inchos per mllo. Tho dlBtancolsl20mllos. Ton milos bolow Now Orleans tho aulf of Mexico approaches to within G miles of tho Mississippi by an arm known as Lnko Horgno. Tho rlvor thus reaches thogult lovelat a point 110 miles loss than now, or In G milos wo reach tho samo lovel that tho river now does In 110 milos. Qcnllo men can discount tho lmmonso dralnago ca pacity of 13 feet fall In R milos In tho ono case, and tho samo fall In 110 milos ns now, lu tho dlschargoof thoso surplus waters. That Is all thci o Is to tho proposed Lnko Dorgno outlot. " Mr, Chairman, tho vory last mon who ought to object to tho proposed outlet aro thoso In trusted by Congress with tho Improvement ot tho Mississippi, They Cnnnot Oppose It nnd Kscnpo Criticism, Thoy toll us that thoy havo not spent tho money approprlatod last year bocauso tho high waters nrovontod. How aro they colnz to spend tbo tour millions by this bill botoro next session, when four or H vo moro will bo nskod ? And If thoy cannot uso It what Is tho ueod ot appioprlutlngltf Lot tho wator out, or koop It wllhlu tho banks, and they can then uso tho money nnd domonstrato their plau. Why re fuse to lot tho water bo drained oft whon they cannot work becauso It does not subsldo ? ltotcrrlng to tho objection that tho Lake Dorgno outlet would causo tho Jetties to shoal, ho said; "Tho truth Is, Mr.Chalrman, that wero It not for tho largo appropriation to bo expended un der tho presont plan, tbo outlet would bo urged ns tlio very solution for tho minimi ex penditure in dredging out tho chaunol within tho Jetties. As An Orislnnl nnd Constant I'rlend or llio JcltleH I enter my protest ngnlnst tho covert way In which they aro being nssallod. Tholr only surety against f uturo nttaek Is In tho opening of the protusod outlot nt Lako Dorgno. "Mr. Chairman, why should wo hcsltato over to plain a proposition as this? It tho out let Is tho useless thing clntmcd. why not dls- poeo ot It? Dy this amendmont not ono dollar Is to bo paid It It Is a failure as an Improve ment ot tho river. To try It can do no harm, as has been shown. It It does what Is claimod tor It you havo results for 1250,000 that will cost, by friendly cstlmoto, 150,000,000 by tho other plan. Whatotcr men tntorostod may w leh or desire, Bitroly Congross can havo no hostility to that rosult. Why. thou, not nlaoo tho two togothcr and dollnltely solvo tho problem ono way or auother for all time, so thnt horeaftor wo may stand on thn solid ground ot demonstrated fact? Doctors differ; so do engineers. It a problem that Involvos $50, 000.000 and nn annually dovostatod couutry cr li bo soli od for (250,000 It demonstrated ono way, uud not n single dollar It In another v, ny, I submit Congress cannot nrford to rotuso tho trial. It hnajvit tho Information to docldo advereoly, and It cannot, In Justice to tho poo plo or tho Ticnsury, rcfuso to test It. That Is nil tho amendmont asks; but tho country will tooncr or later oxact a bettor reason for rofus.il than has beenglion." I. oner Cednr l'olnt.

Ho loved n young g Irl, tho daughter ot a woll to do farmor, who, ot course, looked with unfrlondly oyos ou tho llerco aspirant for Hilda's hnnd, nnd refused to hear his addrosses. Ho sailed away on "n plunder crulso" nnd camo back rich with his ill-gotten gains. Ho sailed Into tho Fjord ono summer morning: tho bells wore chiming and tho cows' horns sounding; tho pco plo wero In holiday attlro, anil ho heard It was Hilda's wedding day. Gathering his men together, nnd arming thorn to tho tooth, ho marched to tho chapol, reaching It as tho groom nnd brldo adrancod to tho railing, where tho minister wallod thorn.
