In a letter to his agents President
Dickey, of the Diamond Jo line, explains
why navigation on the upper Mississippi
has been brought to a practical standstill
at this season of the year. It is on ac-
count of the low water between Keokuk
and St. Louis. From St. Paul to Keo
kuk, President Dickey states, there U a
stage of water which allows the running
of rafters, and which would aleo permit
the Diamond Jo steamers to ply if they
could get below Keokuk. This, as the
Dtvenport Democrat truly says, 'is more
;ha &n ordinary compliment to Msj.
Marker zie, who for miny year9 has had
charge of the upper Mississippi improve
ments. While often cramped for means
he has made the very best use of such
appropriations as congress made for his
vork Msj. Mackenzie has always coopera
ted with the st. aruhoat men, often inviting
t.ieir suggestions, and always asking
them to report obstructions. In the
words of President Dickey, 'the work of
tte government engineers has been of

London, Oct. S. The Boulanger suicide
continues to be the prominent topic, both
here and in Paris. The rule on the conti

tomb not longer than thirty hours at the
