Missouri River Improvements.
The Yankton Press and Dakotian of a re
cent date says : "Within the present week
two steamboats plying on the waters of the
Missouri between Sioux City, Yankton and
the head of navigation, the Helena and
Peninah, have been snagged within a half a
mile of each other, in the bend just below
Bon Homme Island, twenty-seven miles above
this city. In the year 1867 the steamer Im
perial was caught by a snag in this same bend
and went to the bottom. In view of these
several disasters it becomes apparent that the
bend just below Bon Homme Island is an ex
ceedingly dangerous portion of the Missouri
river, and as the ostensible object of Govern
ment river appropriations is to remove ob
structions to navigation, it would seem like a
sensible act to place a portion of the forth
coming appropriation in the dangerous bend.
During the season just closing upwards of
$240,000 have been expended for the im
provement of the Missouri river and for the
coming year an appropriation of over $600,
000 is asked for, to be divided as follows :
At Vermillion, D. T...........................$70,000
Above the Yellowstone... ................... 50,0 0
At Cedar City................................ 60,i00
At Glasgow................................... 18,000
At Kansas City............................... 60,000
At Leavenworth.............................. 35,000
At Atchison.................................. 80,000
At St Joseph................................. 84,000
At Easépoit and Nebraska City............... 55,000
At Council Bluffs aud Omaha................. SO ,000
At Sioux City................................. 23,000

Accident to the Steamer Helena.
A Yankton paper gives the following ac
count of the snagging of the steamer Helena
in the Bon Homme Bend which occurred on
the 3d i nst. It appears the boat was struck
in nearly the same part of her hull as the
Peninah and had thirty timbers broken :
"The Helena met with her misfortune about
a half a mile below the place where the
Peninah was snegged on Monday, the two
boats now lying in sight of each other.
When she struck, the signal of distress was
sounded, five sharp, short blasts from her
whistle, in the hope that the Fontenelle,
which was lying alongside the crippled Pe
ninah might be able to come to her assistance.
But the Fontenelle was fast to the Peninah
and could not drop one sinking boat to go to
the aid of another. Col. Peck went down
to the Helena in a yawl and gave good coun
sel to her officers. . As he was engaged in
saving the Peninah from destruction, his ex
perience was valuable at that particular mo
ment. Unless some unforeseen accident
should occur, the Helena will be saved and
with few comparatively inexpensive repairs
will be made as good as before the accident.
All the passengers assert that there can be no
blame upon the officers because of this mis
fortune. The boat was being Carefully
worked through the snag nest, and where she
struck there was no ripple on the surfacq to
indicate the danger beneath. The Helena is
owned by the Power Brothers, of Benton,
and is running in the Benton line, of which
John H. Charles is superintendent. She was
loaded for the head of navigation and bad on
some two hundred tons of through freight,
besides a considerable amount of way freight,
all of which has been saved. There is no in
surance on tbe boat, but the cargo is mostly
protected. She will be brought down to
Y ankton for repairs as soon as the leak is
sufficiently stopped to enable her to float from
her moorings on the snags.'
