Realisation of this dream hae been held up due to the shallow portions of the river which have precluded year-around navigation. During a large portion of the year ; freighting on the river is possible and the Salem Navigation com pany has operated two steamer' I with heavy patronage in the last year. , . , , w Last year after more than the usual amount of work had been done toward Improving the river, it was hoped that the steamr eould travel all summer and fall, but an .unprecedented dry period spoiled- these plans. - However, still more work is being done this v year and appropriations are la sight for a greater program In fu ture.
