Modern, shallow light draft barges,
w1hich will be loaded directly from the
railroad in Columbia, then the barges
will be towed by light draft tugs to
he mouth of the Santee canal where
deep draft tugs will convey the barges
to ship side in Charleston.
For thp Congaree river service a
special type'.f tow boat has been de
signed. There will be no extra deck
space .and no weight except for the
cranes that handle the freight. The
canal will have a minimum width at
surface of 200 feet and the river is
wide enough for the up-going and
own-going barges to pass without
difculty. A daily schedule will b,,

be affected beneficially. An artery of
commerce is projected through the
center of the state and its successful
inauguration would mean that there
would be feeders from every county
in the state.
Lower Rates Assured
Columbia would enjoy a reduction
of 33 per cent on all commodity and
class rates; Greenville, Spartanburg,
Anderson and Greenwood would enjoy
a reduction of approximately 27% per
cent, an( in these days of high freight
trafile a reduction of that kind means
a strong appeal to shippers. The fed
pral government ma(le inquiry into the
commercial potentiality of this project
as well as its navigable feasibility.
There is nothing new or impractica
ble in this idea of a navigation canal.
In 1781 a survey of St. Stephen's Par
ish was made by Henry Mouzon, andi
in 1786 it was determined to cut the
Santee canal, and a charter WIs ob
tained. This was startel in 1793 and
concluded in 1800 by Col. Charles Snef
the engineer who built the wonderful
chain of locks on the Catawba river,
permitting navigation around the rap
ids at Great Falls.
