Caution Saves Connoctlcut from Doing
Ruinod in Drydock.
Now York, April 11. During tho
process of placing tho new battleship
Connecticut in drydock nt thu navy
yard here today, what might have
proved a serious accident was avoided
by tho olllcer in charge sending down 11
diver to make thorough examination of
thu hull before the water should be
pumped out and the vessel lowered into
the keel blocks.
Tho diver dlscovorod a heavy timber
stuck fast to tho hull on the port side
of tho keel, where It had adhered to
tho rough plating while tho vessel was
on thu ways and had not been released
in launching. A failure to discover the
timber, it is said, would have resulted
in tho buckling or crimping of thu keel
and lower frames when tho vessel set
led on tho blocks.
Several days previous to the launch
ing of the Connecticut lust fall divers
were sent down to examine tho ways
nnd found a largo spike placed where it
would havo pierced tho hull, had it not
been found. Later, an olllclal investi
gation disclosed holes bored in one of

SOON LET CONTRACT
Plans for The Dalles-Celllo Canal
Are Almost Complete.
WILL BEGIN WORK AT UPPER END
Enough Money Now on Hand to Build
Upper Lock and Entrance
to the Canal.
Washington, April 13. Within two
weeks, it is expected, Major Jjingfitt
will bo instructed to advertise for bids
for thu construction of thu first lock of
The Dalles-Ce.lilo canal, thus launching
a project that has been under consid
eration in one shape ut another for a
generation. Thu chief of engineers lias
received Major Langfitt's plan for be
ginning construction, but, owing to
thu fact that several details are not
quite clear, tho papers ure to bo re
turned for explanation. Whim they
get back to Washington it Is thought
the plans will bo approved and author
ity grunted to invito proposals.
Major Langfitt's plans, which hnvo
been carefully worked out In great de
tail and with apparent euro, contem
plate beginning construction on the
tipper end of tho canal and working
down stream. This is donu to enable
contractors to make i:su of the canal as
it Is completed, section by sect Ion.
Major I.ungfilt has prepared plans '
for approaches to the canal ut Its upper
end, for the guard gates for thu first
lock near Celllo, nnd for n cousidurnblu
stretch of canal. It In impossible to '
tell how much work can be done with
tho money appropriated in tho rivers
and harbors law, but It Is antlclplatud
there arc funds enough to completo tho
Celllo lock and canal entrance, nnd to
do considerable blasting and straight
canal work. Near tho first lock it will
be necessary to build an immense em
bankment as the north wall of the ca
nal. This part of tho canal, und In
fact nil other parts not cut through
solid rock, will bo lined with cement.
All embankment will be solid of con
struction und will bo faced with im
mense rocks to prevent washing in sea
sons of high water.
ONLY ONE FARE. .
Reduced Rate to Portland Fair from
All Eastern Points.
Chicago, April III. Thu action of tho
Trunk I.lnu association meeting held
ut New York yesterday was supplement
ed in this city today by thu Central
Passenger association meeting, which
decided to concur with thu former asso
ciation in granting a one-way rate plus
fl from all points east to Chicago for
those desiring to attend the IaiwIs anil
Clark fair at Portland.
Thu Trunk I.lnu association nt Itn
meeting yesterday receded from its for
mer demand for a rate of HO per cent of
the round-trip fare, and agreed to make
a one-way rate plus , I from nil points
in its territory on tint Atlantic sea
board west to Pittsburg and Huffaio.
Tills was to bu done, provided thu Cen
tral Passenger association would tako
the samu rate from the two latter cities
through to Chicago, whom the rates
could be joined with the samu conces
sions Hindu by thu transcontinental
lines, giving a one-way round-trip rato
from the Atlantic to tho Pacific. Tho
action of the Central Passenger associ
ation ratified this agreement today,
which makes the one-way rato from
coast to coast certain.
Tills action assures a large attend
ance at the Lewis and Clark exposition
from all of tho territory lying east of
Chicago, extending to tint Atlantic,
coast, between the Canadian boundary
and thu Ohio river. Thu Centiiil Pas
senger association territory take" in till
the cities of the east, and the rate of
