Part of Open Columbia River Movement, What would you think of an open river between Wenatchee and Priest Rapids, so that without any difficulty steamers might run between Wenat chee and Beverly, the new tovn on the Milwaukee railroad which is now being bu'lt. ( i That such a thing is not only pos-1 1 sible, but that it is entirely feasible can be shown by an examination into the conditions in the Columbia as compared with other big rivers in the country. In order to ascertain I the possibilities along the line of I development which might result the Daily World has gone into the sub ject to quite an extent. It has found that to secure an open river between Wenatchee and the Priest Rapids a dam river across the Columbia river near Rock Island rapids would be necessary. This together with one or two locks is all that would be I needed. Possibility of Construction. The damming of the Columbia river, which at first seems like a great undertaking is believed by some who have had experience with other big projects, to be absolutely feasible. The Ohio river is dammed at many places. How It Was Done. To secure this work in the Ohio river, the people of the towns along the stream organized clubs having for their slogan "On to Cairo." It was their wish that a nine-foot stage of water the year around should be secured in the river. 1 Through the Rivers and Harbors Act Congress appropriated* large sums of money for this purpose and over twenty dams were ordered. These are being built as fast as the COMING I Next number of the Lecture Course —the Rogers-Grilley Recitals. You will be entertained. Remembe th<? date, next Friday night, Febru ary 7.*** 2-7 An Afternoon Party. The many friends of Mrs. J. W. Quigg and Mrs. Alexander Baptie | were welcomed at a large afternoon I party in the beautiful new home of the former on Miller street yesterday. Twelve tables were arranged in the long living room, dining-room and den, and were treated in an original way of entertainment. When the score cards were passed a list of questions concerning a floral wedding were found to be written thereon. The lady having the most skill and promptitude in answering these questions proved to be Mrs. Frank Culp, who was awarded a beautiful hand-painted picture. Mrs. Charles Brown was consoled in her scarcity of correct solutions with a tiny pot of geraniums. After this enjoyable contest was finished the ladies who liked cards indulged in 500. The most fortunate player at I this game was Mrs. Walter Olive, who received a handsome cut glass trophy. A pretty copy of the Tilli cum Tales was won by Miss Halbert. j Mrs. Quigg and Mrsfl Baptie were ; assisted in entertaining the guests by Mrs. Theodeve Ramm of Seattle, who is spending a month with her friend i Mrs. Quigs. j A delightful was served, concluding a most pleasant afrernoon. which, as some one jokingly said, was a most meet and proper initiation of the new home.

Admission 10 & 20c appropriation will allow. As a re- ] suit of these dams the river, which ( before was dangerous, and part of ; the year was too low for navigation, < will, when the dams are complete;! | be safe throughout the year. These ( dams cost close to $1,000,000 each. It is believed by engineers that a dam at Rock Island Rapids would cost much less than even one of these many Ohio river dams. Even less than one-half the amount. What a Dam Would Mean. | (1.) A danr across the Columbia' river at Rock Island would mean an open river between Wenatchee and Priest Rapids. (2.t Water power might be devel-j oped to generate electricity to pump water for the irrigation of j hundreds of acres of the finest land I between Rock Island and Wenatchee. ! ; (?,.) It would mean slack water at Wenatchee, and a harbor all along the bank in front of the city j of Wenatchee. (4.) Less danger to small boats, ' and in fact it would mean boating ' with skiffs between Wenatchee and , 1 the Rapids. j 1 Engineer Ward Talks, i Engineer C. C. Ward was called ' 'up and the facts presented to him. 1 1 Li reference to the subject, he said: I "While I haven't gone into the sub- 1 ject thoroughly I would say that the 1 project is entirely feasible. The I cost for such a dam ought to be not 1 over $500,000 and might he much 1 less. i 1 ] All former work an the Columbia ■ ' river has been with the idea to spend '' '. just as little money as possible. I : have no doubt that if the proper ' move is made that this work may be accomplished. !M. Tapper. A. Z. Wells, S. Merriam, | Halpert, Webber, S. Tlapp. M. U. Tib- I bits, O. B. Fuller, E. F.

NAVIGATION IS BLOCKED BY ICE Steamers Cannot Run—Will Pro bably Be Closed Down For a Week or Ten Days. Steamboat communication between Wenatchee and the upper country is closed down on account of the great bodies of floating ice coming down the great stream.
