JOSEPH IN DANGER. The .Missouri ltlver Trjrlne to Leave It lllRh nnil Dry-lliiinlro Is or Aeres on tlm Kins is Mil W.ishod Am.ij-. Tho resldonts of Doniphan County, Kas., just across tho Missouri from St. Josoph, nro very much alarmed by tho action ot tho Rig Muddy, which throat ens to reduce thousands of acres of valuablo lands to a broad expanse of swamp, sandbars and estuaries, destroy the town of Watbena, cut oil tho pros perous suburbs of Ellwood from all com munication with tho mainland and leave St. Joseph high and dry, and at least Tour miles from tho main channol. Tho river makes a number of bonds and turns as It sweeps past St. Joseph Tho point nearest tho city whero tho Union Pacific and Rock Isl and bridge crosses forms tho lower part of an onormous lottnr tl. Tho upper part of this letter S takes la a largo stretch of country on tho Mis souri side known as tho French Rot toms, and a part of which Includes North St. Josoph. Tho lowor part ot tbo letter S includes a portion of Doni phan County, forming n peninsula on tho Kansas sido which takes in noprlv tno wholo of Washington township. '.Tho blulls which originally formed tho eastorn boundary of tho river aro somo t'lstanco from Its presont course, and for tho past six months tho rlvor has boon cutting away on tho Kansas sido at an alarming rate. Tho river has cut in for a llstancoot over 000 foot In less than six months. This would not bo so alarming wero It not for tho fact that It doubles on Its course. Tho stream still hugs tho right hand bank and is tearing It away by acres. Even at this low atago of water hugo trees and lmmonso squares of land covorcd with grain and timber aro constantly breaking away from tho soil and ;bolng borno away by tho greody stream. If prompt measures are not takon St. Joseph will bo left high and dry with no landing within four mllos of tho river, and tho splendid Iron brldgo orcotod by Jay Gould at a cost of ovor SSOO, 000 will havo to add a four-mllo approach to its pros ont terminus on tho Kansas sldo. So urgent has tho matter becomo that a petition has boon circulated with all possiblo hasto praying Congrosi.for im mcdlato help and rollof, Tho danger to tho brldgo and to St, Josoph was first called to tbo attention of tho peo ple by a dologatlon of cltlnons from Doniphan County. Eyon if tho narrow neck ot land which still glvos tbo east orn nock ot Doniphan County the right to bo called a ponlnsula should hold out for nnothor eight months, it can 110L. withstand ovon tho brlofest stago of high water In tho spring.
