The Improvement of the mouth of
the Columbia river consists at pres
ent in the construction of a jetty,
known as the south jetty, which, when
completed, will extend seven miles
seaward. There are now about five
and one half miles practically com
pleted. The project for this Improve
ment contemplates the securing of a
40-foot channel with at least a width
f one-half mile over the bar. The in.
tended work of the government to pro-
Tide this is summarized in tht annual
report of the chief of engineers for
1903. In speaking of the project, this
' "To produce a bar depth of 40 feet
and a channel of suitable width, not
less than one-half mile, and to main-

ion of the board, require a nearly com
plete control of the ebb flow across
the bar. The beneficial results follow
ing from such control are seen at the
. present gorge, just within the end of
the existing Jetty, where great depths
are found, and a depth of 40 feet Is
projected seaward one and one half
miles beyond the end of the control!
hog work. With the extension of the
south) Jetty the north bank of the
shannel will undoubtedly grow sea
ward and increase' In height. Should
the growth of this batik in length and
elevation be sufficient to give t'je
necessary control of the ebb flow, no
work in addition to the south jetty
will be required. The board is, how
ever, not satisfied that this will be tht
case. It therefore recommends the
construction of a north Jetty at such
time aa its necessity becomes appar
ent and in case the south Jetty alone
falls to produce or maintain a perm
anent 40-foot channel."
The plan of improvement at this
Hm., therefore, covers the ful con
struction of the south Jetty, but should
that fail to give the d'-slred resul'.s the
north jetty will be undertaken. With
the comparatively small appropriation
for this year it will be Impossible to
complete the south jetty this season,
but sufficient should be accomplished
to insure its completion next year. The
Brst w'ork this spring will be the re
pairing of the tramway and super
structure destroyed by the storms of
this winter, following whl'h extension
work will be taken up.
