" The River Convention.
The River Improvement Conven

sensible and sane. It abandoned
the chimerical projects of dams
and locks, and canal to connect
the Tombigbee and Tennessee, and
endorsed in effect the Candler
bills for a six-foot channel from
Demopolis to Aberdeen and four
to six-foot channel from here to
Walker's Bridge, projects always
approved by engineers, and need
ing but geueral acquiesence to ob

to push them through. A day
