Killeen, superintendent of the Diamond Jo line, has made a trip recently along the river towns as far south as Keokuk, where he inspected tne recanting oi the steamers fitts burg and St. Paul. Capt. Killeen was interviewed regarding the boats and the op. ning of the season. Capt. Killeen said that the only thing neces- ary lor the opening of the Diamond o season was a better stage of wa ter in the river. All steamers he stated are in a better condition that the fleet has ever been before and could cumnieuce. runnii g at a day's notice would the water in the Channel allow. The dran'it of the Diamond Jo l..ats, Mr. Killeen stated, is u- light a: that of any craft on the river when they are nut loaded with freight, but at it is out of the (juesiion to run them for pleasure eotirelv. it is ueceriary to have a revenue from the traffic which would exweit the expenses. The running expenses of the palatial rt. t'aul are about f )) a day, and from the freight traffic this is to be met and the prolits made are such that it would be more profitable to tie to the bank. The reason that boats like the Verne Swain and the W. J. Young cau make money in the business now, Capt. Killeen says, is because they take on a cargo of freight at one port one day discharg ing it at another port and returning with another cargo, thus makiDg each load pay expenses.
