'evet, woual inc eae e volme and
the slope from Bed river t o10e sea at
one-2uurth inch per mile This Would
r t ee Dods from Caitro to Bed river over
The islands increase the slope for the same
reason that they divide the volume into smaller
streams and increase the friction. The wide
expanses which aire so frequent above the Red
river increase the slop', for they also Increase
the friction. lBy bringinging these to a uniformity
of width corre.pinding to the narrow parts of
the river, anid conhiellg it to flow in one chan
nel where ir is divided I y i-lands, Mr. Ends is
confident the flood (lope can he lowerd suffi
ciently to relcider levees unnecetssary.
By applying the principles laid down in the
theory of Capt. Fads at the beginning, it will be
seen that the wide, l.tke-like places in the river
are the cause of nearly all the troubles which
beset both navigation and agriculture through
out the alluvial bas in. When a flood ocllrs the
current is very rapid in the narrow places, and
consequettly highly charged with sediment.
In the wide pli,'n it. is sluggish, hence deposit
takes place extensively in the latter, iand great
shoals result, whlch are Infested with snags.
The water, after passing out of these wide
places, deprived of part of its burden. increases
its speed and loads up again from the bpd and
banks of the next narrow part. and carries the
spoils taken here to he next wide place. This
Cetates the caving banks. the eilt-ofls and rapid
changes in the stream. The shoals are simply
efforts of the river to build up the bed and pro
duce a steeper slope to restore the normal cur
rent velocity.
By a uniform width of the liver banks, a uni
form depth would be secured; this would pro
duce a uniformity of current and prevent the
catina of banks, and it would lower the flood
slope below the surface of the lands, because it
would remove the excessive frictional resist
noce created by the wide river-bed. It only
needs the one-filth part of one inch per mile of
reduction of slope from Cairo to lied River to
lower the floods 125; feet at Cairo.
The narrow parts of the river below Cairo sel
dom have a less depth than thirty feet in low
water in them, and Capt. Eads is confident that
reducing the river to a uniformity of width
would give a uniform depth from Cairo to the
, during the lowest water, of at least twenty
Nfet. No straightening of the river is recom
mended by him.
The plan of Capt. Eads is thus shown to be
widely different from that of the United States
engineers, while it will involve but little more
unntlay of money and require no more time for
}(tM execution. One plan inclosoes between enor
mots levees the present bed of the stream. with
<.il of the wide places which are shown to be the
Gustte of its caving banks, and it contemplates
.ereasing by several feet the height of any
previous flood levels. It leaves the terrors of
aPticipated crevasses to depress forever the
'ulue of the lands, and involves constant
:.c ulness and vast annual expenditures to
fin alnm a control of the floods, which will be
,,.ertain at best; while tie plan of Capt
il.ds proposes to remove the causes of the
.mmrfows by a correction of the river channel,
