Light on Navigation.
The special feature of the evening
was an illustrated talk by A. L. Crock
er, who is prominent in the movement
to make Minneapolis the head of navi
gation on the Mississippi. With lan
tern slides and maps he showed the
reservoirs at the head waters and
illuminated his subject fully. The ad
dress aroused great interest in the sub
ject among the real estate men and was
a strong move by the navigation pro
moters as preliminary to the Convention
of the Upper Mississippi River Im
provement association in Minneapolis
Some of the Points.
Mr. Crocker said in part:
Of all the elements of commercial
prosperity, freight is undoubtedly the
most sensitive. It follows the line of
least resistance, and it is remarkable
how great a difference a minute change
in freight rates will produce. The av
erage cost per ton a mile of all theI
railroads of the United States is 7
mills. Last year on the Ohio and Mis
sissippi rivers, 70,000 tons were drawn
by one tug boat the empty barges re
turned to starting point, and a hand
some profit made at a cost of one-third
of 1 mill per ton per mile. The cele
brated Philadelphia engineer, L. M.
Haupt. says the cost of transportation
by artificial waterways is about one
third only of that by rail, while by
open water it is lower and that a na
tion that ignores an economy of 66 per
cent in transportation is wasting its
resources and imposing onerous burdens
upon its people.
From Keokuk north on the Missis
sippi river, and its branches, up to its
head waters In Wisconsin and Minneso
ta, ar numerous water power Bites, af
fording cheap power for manufactur
ing. Some of these are already util
ized, but the great use is yet to come
and it means manufacturing and
freight tonnage. The growing indus
trial energies of the west will be satis
fied with nothing less than the canali
zation of its rivers and the building of
artificial waterways to bring to its
mills the raw materials and to carry
away the finished product.
Cheap and Free.
The greatest authorities on earth say
Minneapolis can easily and cheaply
have an open water channel worth
many railroads and free to everybody,
Further, that when waterways are
properly improved, no interstate com
merce commission is needed for protec
tion against undue rates. The water
ways do that.
Narrowing our discussion to our local
commercial point composed of Minne
apolis and St. Paul, we find a railway
mileage centering here equal to that
which centers in New York, and a vast
country rapidly growing, as
yet comparatively sparsely settled
that as it fills: will steadily build up
and increase this already great twin
city traffic gateway to the new north
west. This center is as visibly a focal
trade point as Chicago, Pittsburg or
New Orleans. I do not believe there
is anv one thing that can so promote
the future prosperity of Minneapolis as
the practical improvement of our river.
I have yet to see a man of experi
ence in these matters who has not said
it would be the greatest possible bene
fit to this city. I have yet to learn of
an instance where waterways have been
improved that the cities and tributary
country have not benefited. Chicago,
Pittsburg, Liverpool and Manchester
have and are spending vast sums from
their own taxation and private means
to get improved waterways. A little
more than one-third of what Chicago
is giving away from her private means
will give a great waterway from Min
neapolis to St. Louis, and Minneapolis
does not iaye to pay for it. She sim
ply has to throw her energies into the
work of inducing the United States
government to appropriate the needed

Practical Va^ne^of River.
The practical vft&e to Minneapolis
of the river navigation has been
doubted by many, simply because it
does not exist today. Further doubt
has been expressed as .to terminal facil
ities being available. William De la
Barre has lived among us for twenty
eight years, and is the engineering heaa
of the Minneapolis Mill company, one
of the largest in the world. He is a
German by birth and familiar with the
engineering of both Europe and Amer
ica, and his engineering work forms
the basis for vast financial investments.

tically the best place for landing and
the erection of depot, wharves, ware
houses and other structures to be used
in connection therewith, is in the vicin

on the west side of the river. Some
men conversant with the local condi

with the location, claiming it to be un
suitable for the purpose and impracti

are 100 feet above the level of the
