In Sheffield the visitors found plenty to
interest them. First and foremost,
they were met by a delegation and from
the train the visitors were conducted
to the Sheffield hotel where an excel
lent breakfast had been prepared for
them. After breakfast the citizens of
Sheffield and Florence took the visl
tors in charge and carried them on a
tour of Inspection to plants one and
two under course of construction. sJte
turning to Florence at noon, the party
was entertained by the Florence chanA

This afternoon the party Is making
a boat trip through the government
locks to the site of dairt. No. 2, known
as Woodrow Wilson dam, nnd for
which the money was recently made
available. The party will return lute
this afternoon to Sheffield where the
members will be guesls nt supper.

There are thousands of workmen
here and everybody seems busy as can
be. There is no lack of employment.
In fact workmen , are scarce for
the amount of work to be done. The
recent spring-like weather has given
an impetus to the work and the scene
around the various plant sites is- one
of hustle and bustle.
Lluet.-Col. Hugh L. Cooper, who has
been designated to superintend the
construction of Woodrow Wilson dam,
or dam No. 2, arrived on the scene
few days ago and is getting things In
shape for active work. . This aisun
guished engineer is the' man who built
the great Keokuk dam at Keokuk, la.
ifls arrival means work at once and is
regarded as an epoch in the construc
tion of the series of great enterprises
planned upon the development of
Muscle . Shoals.
CoL' Cooper is an engineer of inter
national fame and was recalled from
France by the war department to su
pervise this work. He Is recognized as
one of the greatest nyaro-eieciricai
! engineers of the day. He has been lden

Col. Cooper, in company with MaJ.
Winn. United States district engineer,
in charge of the Tennessee river, at
once made a preliminary survey of the
site for the new dam.
The work on the nitrate plants at
Muscle Shoals is being pushed with
much speed. It is said that there are
now employed on the cyanamid works
fully 7.000 men and this number is Do
ing increased as rapidly as workmen
become available. '
In addition to the plant itself a great
many houses are being built ror the
workmen; an electrical railway line Is
being built through the government
reservation to connect with the Trl-
interurban L.
City interurban Lne.
The steel work on the various plants
is being pushed rapidly and it is an
nounced that one of the units will be
rfady for operation within the next
three months.
ln connection with the establish
ment of this great enterprise at Muscle
Kliouls the chamber of commerce of
Florence is planning to celebrate the
city's centennial. The date has not
been definitely fixed, but It is expeciea
that It will be coincident wth the
completion of one of the units of the
great enterprise or the completion of
the 120,000,000 dam, which Col, Cooper
Is here to begin work upon.
