. DANCY SAYS
16-FOOT PORT Channel Construction Less Than 16 Feet Waste of Public j Money, Is Claim To construct anything less than * lr»-foot channel would he a waste °f public money," was the statement County Jucge O. C. Dancy, who in recent weeks has been coresponding w,th port managers throughout the United States, and especially those of the Gulf coLst. As a result of his queries Judge Dancy has received voluminous cor respondence, ana witnoui exception the manage!s oi ports mate that run struction of anything less than a 16 ( foot channel except lor canal barges i should not be entertained by the people of the Lower Km iitanue Val ley. They a. ..i rt that an effort should be made to secure a -•>- or «iO-fu®t ehannel, but that it will be possible to work this out after a lti-foot chan nel is in operation. “Summing up this correspondence, I am convinced that we are not go ng to secure maximum benefits from a xw 16-foot channel," Judge It.ncy aid. ™ “But I find that practically ill har bors in the United Mates have start ed at that depth, end the government would not spend its money for such harbors unless they were practicable. Furthermore. I believe that when the government starts in on such harbor, if local interests show the proper ap preciation and co-operation. Uncle Sam will not turn back, but will go ahead and aid in deepening such har ©r. p. “At Houston they started in with * shallow depth Li Get. 1 believe — "* .id the government has gone 60-50 n increasing the depth to bO feet, br’hey are now contemplating :>'• feet.’ Ci Relative to the formation of navi taiion districts upon which the coin jr tissioners court has taken action the p‘ st week, the county judge said: “In the matter of navigation dis '*c-icts the commisisoners court have ily duty they cannot shirk. No district *r f this kind can be ere ted without he permisson and judgment of the . ommissioners court; therefore there ! i an indirect duty falling upon the ®' ourt, and especially the county udge as a chairman, which cannot .e evaded and w ill not he evaded by lene." . . “There is one thing on these navi . ration district matters that is unlike "roads.
