I lllll I..I I -I - - ! ! , 1IPPERHI IT, PieProposed Waterway lrom Pittsburg to the Sea. SCHEME OF IMPORTANCE. whyennen Recall a Similar Project and Say the Canal IWOULD QEEATLI BENEFIT "TEADE A canul from Morcantown to Camber land, as suggested by a correspondent in Thursday's Dispatcit, would be a work of the utmost importance to the city. All the mermen and shippers agree in ssyicn so. A tew, however, doubt the practicability of the enterprise. The suggestion of a rirerman to connect the Monongahela river with the Chesapeake and Ohio canal, from Morgantown to Cum berland, a distance of 60 miles, meets with the approval of Pittsburg shippers gener ally. If such a scheme is feasible, the pos- Eibilities of trade are apparent at first sight. In giving his opinion yesterday, Mr. G. W. Johnston, of James A. Henderson & Co., owners of the Pittsburg and Cincinnati packet line, said: If such a canal conld be built, the plan of the New Yorker to run a line of steamboats with barees from Omaha to the seaboard would be possible. It may be the projectors of the steamboat line bad such a scheme in view. I don't know anything about the country be tween Morgantown and Cumberland, or the capacity of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, but if such a project could be carried into ef fect, and it w ould be large enough for river boats, it would be a great boon for Pittsburg. It would give us a waterway to the East, and with the canal to LaVe Erie would connect us by water with the lakes and the seaboard. BALTIMORE'S IMPOETAJf CE. I was down at Baltimore too other day, and I was impressed with the commercial importance of that city. Sloro wheat Is exported from that point than any other place in the country. The fact is that if such a canal were constructed it would give us a water outlet to Europe. Much of the wheat exported from Baltimore is car ried from the West by the Baltimore and Ohio road, and it could then be transported by water. I don't like the idea of tunnels, fori think they would be difficult to navigate. Ever thine however, depends on the grade. General Passenger Agent A. E. Clark, of the Lake Erie, said: I suppose that such a canal could bo built, but it would require a great deal of money. It depends whether there is enough wator on the divide to supnly the canal. I think, how ever, reservoirs could be built to keep up the supply, or possibly the tunnels could be cue deep enough to make tho water run through. But I imagine that Tonne children now will be grav-haired before either this canal or the one to Erie will be built The Pittsburg people seem to have caught the canal fever. llivermen generally would like to see such a canal built, but they realize that it would cost mnch money, and some of them are afraid that strong advocacy of the latest waterway would jeopardixe the interests of the proposed Lake Erie project. WOEK FOE MANX MEN. 'William Martin, Secretary of the Amal gamated Iron and Steel Association, said: One of the principal points to be considered is the large number of men to whom snch an enterprise would give employment. If such a tunnel was constructed it would give steady employment for years to thousands of men. I think the State should do the work, as thn project, if carried out, would be a public im provement. The maintenance of the canal would also give employment to a considerable ii umber of men. I t!nk such a canal would be of incalculable benefit Xotho shippers of tbis city. For that reason I say let us' have it. It would result ia great good to the tnanufacturinc Interests which lias been and no doubi will be again, greatly handicapped for shipping facilities. Pittsburc is hampered by a lack of means of transportation to the East and during the busiest season, the railroads cannot handle all the business offered them. The cost of such au improvement would be a mere bagatelle wben the benefits are taken into considera tion. The sooner the State takes up the mat ter the better for the shippers of this vicinity. XS ADVERSE OPINION. Captain Joseph "Walton said he did not think such a canal wonld benefit the river operators of Pittsburg. He bad given no attention to the scheme, because it was ot no interest to him. He said: Onr coal is all shipped down the river. It might help those who own mines in the imme diate neighborhood of Morgantown. A good "deal of land in that neighborhood is being bought np for coke ovens. I think It is a scheme of the coke speculators. It would give them a cheap transportation route to the sea board. It is much more important to Pitts burg to secure a ship canal to Lake Erie. That would be a great and direct benefit to the com merce and manufactures of this city, and would not cost as much as a canal through the mountains of West Virginia and Maryland. It was proposed, at one time, to build a canal from the Yougblosheny river to tho Potomac, but that was equally silly. Secretary C. A. Dickson, of the Pittsburg and Southern Coal Company, said: That scheme Is a very old one. I believe that snch a canal was proposed by George Washing ton, and it has been talked of at several times Since his day. COSTLY, W PBACTICABLE. Captain W. V. O'Eell said: Such a canal could bo built if tho country wants to spend enough money on it It is an old project. I heard of it as much as 3D years ago, I think. It would hardly be practicable to connect with the Potomac river at Cumber land. That river Is navigable only to Wash ington. Above that it is full of shallows and rocks. It would cost a great deal ot money to backwater that stream. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal wasarashed out by the floods last summer, and has not been in operation since. I see that railroad men are after it for a road to parallel the Baltimore and Ohio. Captain Samuel L. "Wood said: It is a pood project and is practicable. Uncle Bam can build anything and tunnel any place. It is only a matter of spending money. Any thing that will increase the facilities for inter- nal navigation will be a benefit to our com merce and to the people at large. This canal would give a great impetus to our trade. The viewB of Captain George Lvsle are as follows: , Tho canal wonld be a good thing. It would open up the Eastern market to the gas coal from the Monongahcla Valley. At present that coal uannot ba shipped to Philadelphia and Iew York because two companies on the Pennsylvania line are favored by that road. Miners in the Monongahela Valley cannot com pete with the Westmoreland Coal Company and theewYork and Cleveland Gas Coal Com pany, because they cannot get the same rates. It has been tried several times. Such a canal would give a great impetus to the coal business in the Monongahela Valley. Coal could be loaded right on the canal boats at the head waters of the Monongahela and sent to the docks at Baltimore. THE MONONGAnELA'S TONNAGE. $In regard to the tonnage of the Mononga hela valley, this week's Labor Tribune, to be issued to-morrow, will say: A sketch of the Industries of the Mononga hela valley as they are now, giving in detail the numerous plants and their aggregates of the tonnage produced, capital, waes and nnmber oi employes, woum oe an interesting and ef fective way of putting the argument Why. tiieday last week there was a s'ngle tow of Pittsburg coal for New Orleans that measured 30,000 tons, rqual lo 60,000,000 tons transaor'ed olie mile. Pool's Manual for 16S7 (the latest to our band) places the mile tonnage of railroads in each of Ave States for that year at consider ablrless than this one tow of coal. Those States were Florida, West Virginia, Missis sippi, Rhode Island and Delaware. The coal out of the Monongahela to New Orleans in 18S9 amounted to the transportation of 225,000,000 tons one mile, which U in excess of the railroad tonnage of eacn one of 17 States. The river coal out of the Monongahela in a year is equal to about 2,500.000,000 tons one mile. This is only one industry of the Monongahela valley, tho chief one for water-way transportation, lint it does nut I nrmsh all the tonnace, and would not f amiHii more than half of it were there a broad-gauge policy adopted as to water-ways.

Minor Bnilneis Transacted in Allegheny Scicct Conncll Lnit Evenluc The Select Council of Allegheny City met last night in special session to hear a report from the Committee on Streets and Sewers. Mr. Muehlbronner presented a resolution for the purchase of property for the approach to the Spruce street -viaduct for S9.802. The resolution was adopted. Mr. Cochran called up the Common Council resolution authorizing the City Property Committee to take charge of the Carnegie building and rent the hall at 8100 a night until the care of the building is finally fixed. The resolution was adopted. The ordinance giving the Union Passen ger Eailway Company the right to lay tracks on South avenue, School street and Robinson street, as passed in Common Coun cil, was called up. Dr. Gilliford moved to amend by providing that on these streets the company shall pave between the track and !or one foot on each side. The ordi nance went back to the committee. Mr. Lare offered a resolution instructing the City Solicitor to take the necessary steps to abate the nuisance of filling up the bed of the river. It was adopted. Mr. Kennedy's resolution offering the First ward public square to the United States Government for a postoffice was referred to the Committee on City Property. The reso lution providing tor the celebration of the semi-centennial of the city was also adopted. SANDBAGGED FOR NOTHING. A Tax Collector Done Up for Awhile, but No Money Lost. Early Wednesday morning some people passing along the road at M:Kee's Kocks, saw a man lying in a gully alongside the road. Upon pulling him ont of the ditch ho was recognized as John Canghey, the tax collector ot Stowe township. He was un conscious, and his face and head were cov ered with bruises. His pockets were turned inside ont, and everything he bad was gone. He was taken to his home and a physician summoned, who soon brought him to con sciousness. Mr. Caughey said that on Tuesday even ing, as he was on his way home, he heard someone coming along behind him. The next instant he received a stunning blow on the head. He had just finished collecting taxes that day, and supposed that the thought that they would get a good sum of money was what prompted the thieves. They were mistaken, however, as Mr. Caughey had turned the money, nearly 5500, into the county treasury in the after noon. There is no clew to the thieves. Mr. Caughey, while badly used up, is not in a serious condition. SEEKING A FINE SITE. The Columbus Clnb Will Secure Property on Fcnn Avcnne for a New Home. The Columbus Club is trying to secure a site on Penn avenue, where it is the inten tion to erect a 5100,000 club house fitted up with all modern conveniences and accessories of clnb life. Members of the clnb yesterday inspected the property Nos. 415 and 417 Penn avenue, and ascertained the price at which it is held. The residence property of the Jackman family lower down the avenue is also under advisement, and it is probable that within a week a site will be secured and contracts let for the structure. The Columbus Clnb is the newest addition to fashionable club life in this city, and numbers many influential Democrats in its membership. The intention is to have a club house which will compare favorably with the club structures already here. A BUST TIME AHEAD. Inspector McAleese Proposes to Occnpy tho Whole March Term of Court. Inspector McAleese last night said that he had enough business on hand for the March term of court to occupy the Criminal chambers during the whole session. Yester day he was served with 30 notices of proceed ings in which to have his witnesses in at tendance, 17 of which have already been served to the officers in charge, each of whom has from 3 to 25 witnesses to notify in his particular case. The Inspector said: "We have probably 100 cases on hand, and will most certainly push them at the earliest possible moment I expect that all will be ready by the time the March term of court commences, and if it takes up the cases I have in hand, there will be little time for any other business in either court."
