things, lias the following about the
Improvements of the Siuslaw harbor

Moutliof Siuslaw river, Oregon
The Siuslaw river enters the ocean lu
the midst of a vast, shifting, sandy
beach, without any lieadlaudor fixed
point to determine the location of the
etilrauco channel. Tho iliiconllned
channel has a range of about one
mile, over which It wanders. 1 ho
depth of the bur varUs from Mo 12
feet at low water, and the bar channel
s very variable in position and cireu-
tlo i. At times a channel running
nearly parallel with tin" coast Is de-
eloied inside the bar. nils channel
is nanow. tll-di-lliied and dangerous,
us boats have to pass through It in the
trough or the sea. At other times
there are two channels.
The plan of Improvement is to con.
flue the waters butweon high-tide
brush and stone jetties, so located as
to direct tho currents upon the bar lu
direction practically perpendicular
with the coast. The north letty will
be 40UO feet long, tlie south jetty 8L'(
feet long, aud they are to converge to
an entrance or 000 feet wide at tho
crest of the bar. The estimated cot Is
