Now that Jack Fro3t, by his icy embrace, has
really put an embargo upon the navigation of
the upper Mississippi river by covering its sur
face here and there with bridges of ice, the
GLO BE accepts the situation, and herewith
gives its annual review of the business of the
season, with the prominent characteristics con
LENGTH OF SEASON.
The season of 1878 is unparalled in the lencsth
of time the river has been open and unob
structed by ice from the head of navigation at
St. Paul to the Gulf. Lake Pepin, always the
laBt remaining obstacle in the way of naviga
tion i the spring, opened this year the 6th
day of March, though i was not until the
20th of the month that the open passage thus
provided was taken advantage of, and the first
boat of the season, the steamer Arkansas, of
the Keokuk-Northern line, came through to St.
Paul, the unexpected early opening finding the
steamboat companies unprepared for business,
as the unusually late closing found th em with
nothing to do owing to the fact that, governed
by past experiences, their season contracts for
freights were made to close with the 15th of
Counting from the 6th dayof March, the ac
tual date when the ice in Lake Pepin disap
peared, giving an unobstructed river, to the
morning of the 13th of December, the actual
date of the river's closing by iceand during
all of which time boats could have run with
out obstruction from iceand we have had
nine months and six days of open water from
the Gulf to St. Paul, or a total of 287 days, the
longest season by fifteen days in the nineteen
years of which a record has been kept, as will
be seen by the following table:
1KG0. 1801. 1802. 1803.

The next longest season, as will be seen, was
in 1872, buteven that season, then considered a
remarkable one, falls behind the present by
BUSINESS OF TDK SEASON.'
Notwithstanding the great length of the low
water seasonextending from early in July
until the very close of navigationand the
very low stage of water reached, the business
of the two steamboat lines plying to and from
St. Paul, show a most gratifying increase over
that of 1877. Commencing with the Arkansas,
March 2'). the first arrival, and the boats of the
Keokuk-Northern line arrived at and departed
from St. Paul 133 times against 91 times
for the year 1S77, while the boats of the
Diamond line arrived and departed 52 times
against 28 times for 1877. One wild boat also
made a trip to St. Paul, early in the season, the
Alice from Pittsburgh, bringing through a
largo iron and glass trip. This gives a total of
186 arrivals and departures from St. Paul of
boats of regular dawn river lines for the season
of 1878, against only 119 for 1877. Th move
ments of boats were as follows:
KEOKUK NORTHERN LINE.

mond Joe line were as follows:

Grand total 186
While the exports and imports do not show a
corresponding increase to the arrivals and de
partures of boats,it in gratifying to know that,
notwithstanding the long anil serious low
water interruption, almost entirely suspend
ing exports during the last three months of
the season, and very largely curtailing imports
entirely so from way pointsthe actual
business of the lines show a very decided in
crease over the year 1877, and previous years,
sin-.e the completion of the several rail outlets
to the East we now possess, brought that, inter
est into active competition for the oarrying
trade of ourState, and the Northwest. Th
following tables of comparison show the busi

It will be seen that the up freights for 1878
exceeded those of 1877 by 3,152 tons. This ex
cess of tonnage for the present season is, how
ever large, lost on a falling off on the down
stream business of 2.207 tons, leaving the total
tonnage of the season in excess of that of 1877
of not quite 1,000 tons. We have not the fig
ures in detail of the business of the Diamond
Jo line, but understand that tne increase of
imports for 1878 is nearly or quite 50 per
These figures, when the condition of the
river is considered, shows that the commerce of
our great river is not going into decay as a re-
BUlt of the railroad development of tlie coun
try through which it flows. Bather, it demon
strates a growth encouraging to those engaged
in it, and full of promise for the future.
While the freight business of 1878 is thus
Been to be in excess of 1877, there was also a
very large increase in the passenger business.
Much of this increase was undoubtedly due to
the general flight of the paoplo of some of the
Southern States from before the ravages of the
deadly fever-, but it is observable that travel
by river has been steadily increasing for the
past few seasons, pleasure tourists visiting the
Northwest during the summer months very gen
erally choosing this mode of conveyance.
THE LOW WATER.
Owing to the long drouth in the fall of 1877,
and the light snow-fall of 1877-78, the spring
found all the sources of water supply of the
great river illy provided for the drain of the
hot season. Th ice moved out in the spring
with only a comparatively slight swell in the
volume of water. Owing to the same causes
the June risea regular thing in the good old
days steamboatmen delight to talk about
was a failure. A a natural consequence
the water declined rapidly, until July 7,
on which day the Belle of a Crosse, for St.
Paul, with a good freight and passenger list,
stuck fast on Franchman's bar. just below the
city. The water continuing to decline, July 11
the Cheever commenced transferring from
Prescott. Th latter part of July there was a
Blight rise, and July 31 the Mitchell came
through to St. Paul, and other boats of the line
followed until August 10, when the Cheever
again commenced transferring from Prescott.
Soon thereafter the water reached so low a
stage the Cheever had to be withdrawn, and
the transfer was made by rail from a Crosse.
This rail transfer was continued for the balance
of the season, though in the latter part of Oc
tober and first of November the steamers Annie
and Tidal Wave, two boats of-the largest ton
nage of the Keokuk-Northern line company,
but long and flat and of very light draft, did
succeed in making a few trips through to St.
Paul, bringing very good cargoes, the last
being the Anna, which left here on her last
trip, and the last down river departure of the
of the season, Nov. 3d. While it has been con
sidei ably over a mon th since this last depart
ure from St. Paul, it was only the past week
that the last boat running, of the upper river

is on which our citizens,North with all the inhab
itants living along its course, have ever mani
fested great interest. The trouhlee in th.et past
JCOIC gieai interest ni trouble in the past
system, by which it is sought to confine the
volume of water to a comparatively narrow
space, the theory being that the water being so
confined, will of itself wash out the sand bars
created at bends where the force of the current
is weakened and negatived by being spread out
over a great surface. This system wasfirstpu
in practice at the upper river, at Pig's Ey bar,
about three miles below the city, and five years
ago one of the worst points on the river be
tween La Crosse and St. Paul. Th original
expense was comparatively insignificant. The
practicability of the plan was demonstrated
the first season after the work had been com
menced by a perceptible deepeding of the chan
nel. The plan has been developed gradually
at this point during the intervening years, and
fully completed this season, at a total expense
of some 816,000, and the result was that when
there was at low water in former years only
some eighteen inches of water, there is now
from four to five feet.
The season just closed has witnessed a more
systematic development of the wing dam sys
tem than during any previous ye.ir. The work
has been in charge of Mr. Gillespie, of the
United States river and harbor service, under
whose direction about one hundred thousand
dollars has been spent in this direction be
tween a Crosse and St. Paul. Besides com
pleting the works at Pigs Eye, the following
has been done: Opposite Newport a wing and
a closing dam has been put in cost, $6,000. A
Hastings four wing dams were constructed,
costing $9,000. Opposite Prescott two dams,
89.000. At Crab Island two extensive dams,
820,000. At Beef Slough four dams, 822,000.
Dams were also put in at Betsey Slough,
Grenn's Bluff and Rolling Stone, while at the
point where the Chippewa empties into the
Mississippi a series ot jetties or fuclne wing
dams, confining the waters to one channel, and
costing about $16,000, was completed during
Already sufficient time has elapsed since the
completion of these improvements to demon
strate their feasibility in deepening the chan
nel, and the officers in charge of the work, and
experienced steamboatmen who have observed
the effect, have no doubt that the improve
ment thus secured will be permanent.
The little steamers Otter and Gophej plied
for a good part of the season between St. Paul
and poinis on the ^Minnesota, several trips

the season of 1879, which the company expects
to make a lively one.

Perhaps They WiU Prove Murders.
Yesterday, in the municipal court, two cases
were called up, which may eventually develop
into murder cases. Th first was that of Wm
Proetz and Henry Werner, charged with an as
sault last Saturday, on the person of George
Werner, step-father and father of the de
fendants. Full particulars of the family row
were giv en at the time of the assault by the
GLOB E. From time to time the case has been
postponed when called, owing to the iuiuries
inflicted upon the elder Werner. Yesterday,
when the case was called, a certificate from Dr.
R. Stone was presented, setting forth that old
rnan Werner could not appear, and was in a
very dangerous condition, the result of the
brutal treatment inflicted by his sons. Th
ease was continued to the 231 inst., Proeta be

terday a Mrs. New, residing on Pleasant avenue
near Ramsey street, was down about the police

was acting like the old devil up at home. A
policeman was sent up to soothe the old
man, bu when he got there,
Old Newwas found as peaceful as a lamb. But
New took a new departure when he learned of
his wife's late movement. paid the police
headquarters a visit, and was going to raise
the old Ned because she had taken upon herself
to complain, when it was no such thing.
It seems that New has been absent fromhome
for some time without his wife's permission.
When he returned he was informed that his
room was better than his company. Th same
to you, Mrs. New, as the house is mine, etc.,
was given as a reply. Over this welcome home
the row arose. At nightfall i was supposed
that HO overt act of warlike demonstration
with shovel and tongs had been inaugurated.
