RECRUITS ARRIVING.
Washington, April 4. The Chippewa
river lumber fight has been reuewed and
is becoming decidedly lively. President
Weyerhauier and other representatives ol
the Beet Slough or Mississippi lumber
company, reached the city to-night. The
party includes Messrs. Lamb and Young,
of Clinton. Iowa, and Youmans and Mor
ton, of VVinona, Minn. They come to
fttay till the fight is ended, and will make
things as hot as possible for Gov, Thad.
Pound, who is still here guarding the in
terests of the prosecution against the loose
lumber nuisance. Mr. Pound met the new
arrivals in the lobby of the Ebbitt house
late to-night, and the party had a good
natured conversation over the prospects
in the fight before the department of jus
tioe to be instituted to-morrow. The
Beef Slouch men are exceedingly
SUSPICIOUS OP POUND.
They regard him as an adroit schemer who
knows all the points in the case and who
proposes to go to his whole length against
them. In this latter supposition, at least,
they are right, and their arrival here in
force to combat him is not inopportune.
It nows turns out that the victory ot Con
gressman Humphreys and President In
graham, of the Dells Improvement com
pany, in procuring a delay till the 1st oi
May in the execution of Pound's floating
lumber nuisanoe order was not a victory
after all. Gov. Pound says that he antici
pated this prohibitory movement by re
ceiving from Judge Dixon, of Milwaukee,
who was appointed a special United
States district attorney for the prosecution
of the Beef Slough company, and other
partios committing nuisance against the
navigation interests of the Chippewa river,
a stay of proceedings until
THE SPRING RUN OF LOGS
snail nave been nnisned, liis object in
doing this was to prevent an injury to a
large number of poor lumbermen who
have logs on hand, and might be embar
rassed by being compelled to raft them
witnout previous notice, ihis stay was
procured from Judge Dixon, at Mil
waukee, several days before the instruc
tions of the department of justice order
ing the withdrawal of all proceedings till
the first of May reached him, but tho Beef
Mougn people are confronted with a serious
danger, They see that if the proseoutions
ordered by the department of justice are
carried out they will lose a large source
of revenue in their extensive booming
operations, aggregating upwards of 2,(H)0,
000 feet of lumber in logs per year. They
nave discovered that
THE PRIMARY OBJECT OP
POND
is to make war upon them, and through
tiis oraer lor tuc prosecution ot all nuis
ances on the Chippewa river, their wing
dams and booms, which divert from their
true channel a part of tho waters of the
Chippewa river into the Beef Slough, are
in danger of judicial condemnation. Their
dams and booms judicially condemned,
their occupation is gone, or partially so,
They have determined, therefore, to make
their preliminary fight upon the new phase
of the contest against them before the at
torney general. This policy, it is sur
mised, will be one of procrastination, if
they find themselves beaten on the square
issuo of prosecution or no prosecution.
Pending this difficulty they will continue
their immense logging business as they
did pendiug the action in the Wisconsin
legislature authorizing them to construct
improvements for conducting that busi
neat, it is said that they will be able to
postpone the final condemnation of their
dams and booms for three or four years
at lean by going to the appelate courts
should they be defeated in the preliminary
stages ot
THE RENEWED CONFLICT.
One of the main grounds upon which
Pound and his friends propose to prose
cute the gigantic loose-log nuisance is that
it is antagonistic to the plans of the fed
eral government, as reported upon by Col.
Farquahar, of the United States engineer
corps, and agreed to by Gen. Humrhreys,
chief of the government engineers for the
improvement of the Chippewa river, as a
national enterprise. The execution of this
plan was never commenced on account of
Gen, Grant's refusal to permit an ap
propriation of $10,000 procured by Gen.
Jerry Rusk at the first session of the
forty-third congress to be expended. The
basis of Graut s prohibition, as was the
case with a large number of other appro
priations, was the lateness of the season
in part, and to some extent merely local
character of the improvements proposed
Col. I' arquhar recommended that this
stroam be improved with a special view of
increasing its suitability for lumber naviga
tion by
A SYSTEM OF WING DAMS.
and sluices. The diversion of a part ol
the water of the river at the head of Beef
Sloueh is alleged to form a serious hind
rance to the navigation of the Chippewa be
low that point, while the practice of floating
logs loosely and booming them at Beef
Slough constitutes a second and more
serious obstacle to navigation. In con
demning these features of the Beef Slouch
business both the Eau Claire and Chip
pewa Falls interests unite, but despite the
intense jealousy of the former against
Chippewa Falls it is willing to join hands
with the Beef Slough men, and detect the
whole movement, rather than have Chip
pewa Falls recognized as the head of
navigation on the Chippewa. The recog
nition of Chippewa Falls as the head of
navigation lays Eau Claire open to prose
cution for its pet nuisance in the shape of
tho Dell's water-works improvement, an
enterprise ostensibly set on foot for the
purpose of furnishing Eau Claire with
water and milling facilities, but really, as
the Chippewa Falls men claim, to shut off
their placo from
THE BENEFITS OP NAVIGATION.
To prevent this recognition, therefore, and
secure the insertion of the words, "By
confining the inquiry as to the nuisances
between the mouth of the Chippewa
river and the city of Eau Claire," Judge
Humphries and Col. lngraham, of the
Dells or Eau Claire company, came to
Washington and laid seige before the
walls of Atty. Gen, Devens's frail fortress.
As duly noted in tho Times dispatches,
they did not secure the insertion of this
proviso, but didjsecure a stay of the pros
ecution, as before noted. Gen. Humphries
has notified the Dells improvement people
that their dam aud reservoir are
A VIOLATION OF THE GOVERNMENT PLAN
for the improvement of the river, but the
work on the dam is still going ahead, and
is designed to be completed on the original
plan, notwithstanding the notifica
cation of the federal engineering
bureau. It is claimed by the Chippewa
Falls men that this places the Dells im
provement in a condition to be restrained
by an injunction, though it is regarded
doubtful whether this restraint will be
exercised unless things should come to a
crisis. This latter feature is a renewal or
continuation of the old-time war between
the towns named; a war wbiou has shaken
things up in Madison during a number of
legislative seasons, and, with the exception
of the Beef Slough jobjnvolves. it is said.
a greater amount of lobbying and sharp
work than any measure ever brought be
fore the Wisconsin legislature.
AN INTERESTING FEATURE
of this minor local fight is a proposition
made by certain prominent citizens of Eau
Claire last fall during the congressional
canvass to buy out Thad Pound and secure
his co-operation in procuring the recogni
tion by the Uuited States government of
Eau Claire as the head of navigation. It
was represented to Mr. Pound that an
influence amounting to five hundred votes
in Chippewa, Menominee, and Barron
counties would be delivered both in con
vention and at the polls if he would enter
into the compact they desired to consum
mate. These votes the Eau Claire men
claimed to be able to control, and as events
showed subsequently did control to a large
extent.
POUND REFUSED TO SELL OUT
Chippewa Falls to its Eau Claire rivals,
and was made the butt of a vindictive and
effective opposition from that hour onward.
Thaddeus has their proposition in black
and white, and is liable to publish it any
time his Eau Claire neighbors may kick up
a larger muss than he thinks they are
justified in doing. Weyerhauser and his
crowd will call on Senator Howe to mor
row before going to Gen. Devens. They
will also consult with their champions,
Senator Windom, of Minnesota, and Sen
ator Allison of Iowa. Senator Cameron,
who made a vigorous fight against the Beef
blough legislation when in the Wisconsin
state senate, is not in the city.
There will be no "investigation" of Gov
ernor G rover's election to the senate until
after the close of the special session of
congress. It would be easy enough to
finish the investigation at any time in
twenty-four hours, for every material fact
in the history of Oregon politics for the
past two or three years,bcsides much that
was wholly immaterial, was brought out
by Morton's committee at the last session.
But the opportunity tor a summer trip to
the 1 aciho coast at the government ex
pense, is a temptation too Strang to be re
sisted by Morton and Mitchell; and. when
the extra session closes, they will cross the
continent, invest ten or fifteen thousand
dollars of public funds in having a good
time, and get back before December as
wise as when they started. There has
never been even a reasonable suspicion of
fraud in the election of Grover, to justify
this petty larceny excursion.
