The Proposed Canal
In a brief interview this week wu h Mr
T 0 Fries our county surveyor regard
ing the proposed canal leading from the
St Johns at Lake Washington into the
Indian river through Eau Gallic river
about which THE STAU has kept its read
ers thoroughly posted the past few weeks
especially regarding the movements of
the Jacksonville board of trade which
body seenis to think that such a canal
would interfere with navigation on the
upper St Johns Mr Fries informed us
that it is only the intention to cut this
canal of sufficient depth to relieve the
excess water from the upper St Johns
after it is higher than the ordinary stage
in Lake Washington Mr Fries says I
there is about fifteen feet fall from Lake
Washington to Indian river but that the
canal can be controlled with a lock if
necessary so as to retain the waters of
the St Johns at the ordinary stage but a
lock is hardly deemed necessary as some
portion of the canal will have to be cut
through a hard substance or some kind
of rock that will be hard to wash aWRY
