1 I 1 S OT'.! 'Vi1''"'. p.:- I .. 41 l- s* Nv 2 TUE8DAY, March 2t, 1911. Received Highest Award World's Para Food Exposition Some interesting historical facts, supplemented by some expressions made by competent river engineers as to the value of the Des Moines river for navigation and for water power are contained in the latest contribu •v tlon from Capt. E. H. Thomas. Mr. Thomas takes issue with those who do not believe that the stream can be of value in the following article: As to the improvement of the Des Moines river I notice that some of the newspapers and their correspondents are still asking themselves "is it feas ible?" A few of them express the oplnfon that it is not, and call atten tion to a "former attempt" to create slack water navigation and develop the water power. As the United States engineers who have just com pleted the survey, the board of en gineers and the war department have all endorsed the project, there appears to be no room for argument under this head. The plans, specifications and estimates for the twenty-three dams and other work will be forwarded to Washington within the next sixty, days. Later on those who have been urgtfng this improvement expect an or der from the war department to open the bridges, so that the river can be used by boats during the good water months. The navigation of the stream for a portion of the year will certainly secure appropriations to make the river good for eight months. The pro ject Is in good shape, but as we go along it is well enough to keep the record straight. Some of the stories we read in papers are misleading. As to the "former attempt" to improve the Des Moines river. The graft which we hear so much about at the present time, a plan to secure something for nothing, is not a modern invention. Prom 1850 to 1861. a large army of grafters were invading Iowa, backed by the capitalists of the east. All manner of swindles were suc cessfully worked upon the good people of Iowa and the socalled attempt to Improve the Des Moines river was one of them. An incorporated company known as the "Des Moines River Im provement and Navigation Co.," se cured a large grant of land along the Des Moines river and agreed to create a slack water navigation and develop the water power from the mouth of the stream to Fort Dodge. The company built five or six cheap dams, transferred the lands to their confederates In the east, and then abandoned the work on the Des Moines river. The lawyers insisted that, as the company had not complied with the terms of the contract, it could not hold the land, and that it would revert to the government. But the company did hold it, through a decision of the United States supreme court that the shylocks of the east were innocent purchasers. While this company was building the cheap dams, other companies were working the railroad graft. Thirteen counties of Iowa voted bonds to secure railroads which were never built. One county was handed a package of two million dolfars. Under the same innocent purchasers decision of the court, the people were compelled to pay these bonds interest and principle. The Des Moines river scheme was bad enough, but when compared with the railroad grafts of that period it looked like a small deal. The only connec tion the government had with the "former attempt" to improve the Des Moines river was in being robbed of fight it to a finish many thousands of acres of the best MUNTERVILLE. 1 Mr. and Mrs. Roe Venator are the parents of a son, born March 8.

THOMAS GIVES HISTORICAL AND RECENT FACTS AfcOUT THE DES MOINES land in Iowa. Notwithstanding the cheap charac ter of the five or six wooden dams they created a steamboat channel and developed a great water power as far up the river as the work was com pleted. The dams demonstrated that the system was correct. I do not get this from heansay. I was a resident of Bentonsport during the fifty's and saw the 'steamboats passing up and down and the many mills using the water power. This portion of the river was used by the boats up to about 1864, when they were shut out by the low bridges. When the river was at a good stage the boats would go on above the dams to Ottumwa and Des Moines. The engineers who re cently completed the survey followed the general plan of the old company as to the location of the dams. In this case the government will do the work, and the dams will be perma nent, built of steel and concrete, and when the government starts the work it will be completed. It never quits a job. As against assertions and opinions from those who have no knowledge of such improvements, 1 will introduce a little expert testi mony. "The Des Moines river is now nav igable as in the days when the Miss issippi river steamers were passing up and down it. The only obstructions to navigation are those placed there by man, the dams and the bridges," said Major Montgomery Meigs, engaged in river improvement since 1865. "Give me a stream of water with one half cf the discharge of that in the Des Moines river and I will agree tc make a steamboat channel anywhere through the corn fields of Iowa. On account of its great fall between the city of Des Moines and its mouth and rapid discharge ef water the Des Moines is one of the best water power streams in the country. I should be pleased to use it as a sample to show the people v/bat can be done through the use of water and electricity," said Major W. S. Richie, United States en gineer graduate of West Point, with forty years experience in river, har bor and lake work, who built the Miss issippi canal through the corn fields of Illinois which now has a stationary stage of water of seven feet. "As to water power, seven of the twenty-three dams on the Des Moines river will develop sufficient power to turn all of the wheels in all the prin cipal cities of Iowa. Through the use of electricity such power can be trans mitted to any part of the state or to adjoining states," said Major Albert O. Rowse, who has been engaged in river work, canal and coast work for thirty years. "The proposed dams on the Des Moines river will create the steam boat channel, and develop an enor mous water power. If all the power from the two dams can be leased at the present prices, the money received from such' rental will pay the entire cost of the work in seven years," said Major W. A. Jones, U. S. A., over 60 years of age and who has spent his entire life in this class of work. The testimony of these men who have spent a year in the examination and survey of the stream ought to clinch the matter. It certainly does with those who have been advocating the improvement of the stream for the past five years, and they will go right along with the agitation and E. H.
