tructd last year He report that he
found it to b In far better condition
than be . expected. '.The winter freshet
had dislodged some XI th stone in aitter

It la believed that th revetment is now
In proper shape to answer all require
ments for another year. In reference to
th work being dona by th snagboat
Methloma. Engineer Ogden says:
' "Since being taken to the upper river
the -vessel has given a good account of
berself. Bh is now engaged n removing
nag from th river between Salem and
Lambert's bend, and making minor re
pairs to the dams. While working up
stream he auocaeded in removing some
of the worst obstruction-, from th chan
nel. She ta now employed In taking out
others of ' minor Importance. It is ex
pected that th work will be completed
by th latter part of August or the first
of September." - - - -- 7 ' -
In th course of few weeks th gov
ernment will be In a position to do some
very effective Improvement work to the
channel of th upper river. The dredge
being built to place In commission bet
tween her and Ealem will he ready tor
launching on Saturday at the Supple
shipyards. A month later It Is stated
that the dredre will b In operation.
Th last carload of machinery for th
dredg arrived yesterday, th mala por
tions of it -consisting of th crane ana
dipper. Th crane is a huge bridge-shaped
arrangement snade of steel, ana weign
several tons. Th dipper or bucket will
contain one cublo yard of material.
Until launched it is not known Just
how much water tha dredg will draw.
If It draft should not prove too great
th' engineers ar confident that, th
rsael will be able to mak a very ma
taiial Improvement tn th channel be
fore the present season Is ended.' 'But
on account of low water It I possible
that the dredg cannot be operated at
some of th shallowest points. ' Should
such prove to be true the work which
ha been planned will hav to be post
