When I was in Washington in Feb
ruary, 1 induced Congressman Gear, of
Iowa, who is an old-time friend of mine,
to go with me to the secretary of war to
set what could be doae towards getting
an order issued for the permanent onen-
inf of the bridge. The secretary told us
he had ordered the bridge opened to all
travel, but when I informed him that it
would be closed again as quickly as the
river was navigable, he said he could see
no valid reason for not making the order
pe'manent, and promised to do so.
This was about February 12th. Gen.
Be net did not submit the order to
Secretary Proctor until the 21st of
Mh rch, ho wever, and on the 24th
the secretary approved it, and April
1st it was reissued by Col. Whit-
tcriore, when it went into effect. This
