THE NORTHERN TKlBUNjjJ, MARCH 31.1883.
SATURDAY. MARCH 31. 1883.
Correspondence Nokthkhn Thibunk.
This place, comparatively unknown
until within the last five or six years,
is fast becoming better know, and vessel
owners are anxiously looking forward
to the time when this harbor will be
made a harbor of refuge. This has been
winter of unusual severity on this shore
of Lake Superior for clays in succession
wj have experienced snow storms which
for density and fury have no precedent
i u the memory of the oldest inhabitants.
Notwithstanding the depth of snow
here, lumbering has been prosecuted
vigorously by all lumbermen in this
region having any knowlege of the
business. The American Lumber Co,
have had a large gang of men here for
about six months, their output is about
800,000 feet. W. R. Burt, through a job
ber named Gamble, has in between one
-aud two millions of feet. George Ran
i dolph is operating in hewn timber, and
his work is progressing favorably, as
usual. We will furnish you with statis
tics when winter operations are closed.
Thos. Sullivan is operating on long tim
ber for Alpena parties, his output will
be about ten millions of feet. The above
nhows the magnitude which lumbering
has reached in this vicinity. The logs
held over from last year consist of about
.",000,000 of feet, stuck in Sucker river
on account of nine or ten rods of a sand
bar, not near as bad as the bar at the
forks of the Pigeon, nor as bad as mile
after mile of the Sturgeon. When a
Saginaw man with a head long enough
to eat oats out of the bottom of a churn
comes here and talks about log driving,
we don't listen to him any more. The
Cheboygan style of driving suits us well
enough, we are not proud. It is expect
ed that the milling season will open
early. The only sawmill here is owned
and operated by Rrazel Bros. They in
- tend running their mill night and day
during the coming summer. As town
olection is drawing near it may be ap
propriate to remark here that if we can
jret two British subjects and one citizen
-hi our board of election, the same as
last fall, it will do us well enough, our
town officers don't want the best. It is
understood that the St. Marie will make
regular trips here next summer, except
in cloudy and rainy weather. The stage
line between here and Newberry has
proved a great benefit to the residents
of this place this winter. Reed's Gilt
Kdge tonic is commanding an extensive
trade here just now. There is also a
druggists license in operation here that
wants ventilating. You'll get the par
ticulars of it after a time.
Per so tut I.

General Washburue, member of Con
gress, in an iuteryiew with the Washing
ton correspondent of the Inter-Ocean,
after remarking that the people do not
have the slightest idea of the loss to the
country the failure to pass the River and
Harbor bill is going to entail, refers to
the importance of the improvement
-the Sault Ste. Mary river as follows:
The most important improvement,
.-far as the Northwest is concerned.
that of the Sault Ste. Mary. The tonnage
that goes through that river is simply
enormous, and it is increasing all the
time. The government has built a very
extensive canal and lock, the driest piece
-of masonry in this country, which will
take through a ttotmtr drawing 16 feet
f water, as large a draft as will admit
vessels through the straits of Mackinaw
to Chicago, but there is a space in the
iSaultSte. Mary River where a vessel
drawing 12 feet only can go through.
The consequence is, we do not get the
benefit of the lb" feet of water in this
canal. The difference in the cost of
carrying freight in vessels drawing M
l'oet and in vessels drawing 12 feet of
water is tremendous. The delav there
fore in completing this improvement
will result in great loss, not only in
damage to property, but in injury to
commerce. I do not know of so marked
an instance where so little money is re
quired to improve the carrying trade as
in the improvement of that river, and
the loss of one year's time there is a
great loss to the country. So it is with
other improvements. There are Duluth
and Superior harbors where the com
merce is going to bo large, and the facil
ities are inadequate to do the business.
The delay, therefore, in completing the
improvements will result in great loss
to the countrv. ami m irront i rv t.. thu
facilities for doing business. In my
opinion in another year you will find
.as great a howl for river and harbor ap
propriations as was raised by metropo
litan papers and a certain class of pol
iticians, who sought to make cheap
political capital by denouncing the ap
propriations of last year."
