$200,t00,00t»—an amount exceeding
annually five to *ix time* the total
cost of constructing permanently the
work we ore now specially ad
vocating.
There is another point of view in
this connection of the utmost impor
tance, and that is the great necessity
tho South now has of immigration
of opening up some inducement
whereby the millions of uncultivated
acres of the .South now in wilderness,
those tfoin# to wa.ste and desoln-
bear the 'rich fruits of husbandry.
Tho .South mmt hare some induce
ment to attract immigration, and no
enterprise or public work would sur
pass this great internal improve
ment and tho North could in no
possible way do themselves or the
great enterprise. Millions
of acres would then be reclaimed,
and millions of population,
the bone and sinew of Kurope
and the Northern and Western
States, would then go South, there
to cultivate and develop those now
wasting acres. The construction of
these water lines of communication
would thus at once be an encourage
ment that the South needs, above all
things, next to cheap transportation
for its imports as well as exports,
hardy, worthy, inestimable immi
grants—settlers, citizens. We want
them by thousands, tens of thous
ands we need a proportion of that
great tide of humanity (and capital
too) that now so steadily finds its
wuy westward and th} only wsy
seemingly to securo this and devel
op and bring again prosperity to the
languishing South is by immigration
and the construction of tho Atlantic
and, Mississippi or Great Western
Canal. Then the South would see
better days the old fields would
smile again forests would give way
to fruits of hasbandry, mines be
opened, manufactories be built, fur
naces st-nd forth the glare of their
tires by day and by night, and a
whole people bo made happy again
in industries which wocld add un
told millions to the wealth and per
manent prosperity of the nation.
Mike McCoole, the notorious pugi
list, shot a man in St. Louis last week
was arrested, and subsequently re
leased on $20,000 bail.
The Senato Transportation Com
mittee was in St. Louis on the :51st

the subject of cheaper transportation
