CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT
Of The Woriat-Tbe Monti of Tie
The following is tho report otthe
chief of engineer. TJ. S. A., to tho sec
retary of war regarding tho work now
in progress at the mouth of the river:
Mouth of. the Columbia River,
Oregon and Washingten:
Tho project under which the work
is being carried on was adopted 1884.
It contemplates providing a channel
across tho Columbia river bar, having
a depth of thirty feet at mean low
tide. This is to bo effected by con
centrating the water flowing over the
bar and increasing the resultant car
rents to such a degree as to procure
the desired depth. Any work for ac
complishing this end must bo moro or
less tentative in its character. The
work which is now in progress is the
, building of a low tide jetty, starting
Hancock (Disappointment). This
jetty is constructed of stone resting up
on a mattress foundation about 10
feet wide and from 2 to 5 feet thick.
The slono extends to the level of the
mean lower low water. The materials

the end of tho working season. It is
that by that time
iliould bo made
on Hie work.
Tho plant now provided is exteusive
and in thorough working order. It
would bo in the interests of economy
to keep this continually employed to
its full capacity until the pro
ject is completed. As the work
progresses tho jetty tramway be.
comes more greatly exposed to the
action of tho sea, and is moro liable to
1)0 destroyed or damaged during vio
lent storms. To replace this when the
jetty i3 partially built woidd be diffi
cult and expensive. It is advisable on
this account also to push tho work
forward as rapidly as possible. Of
l.tte years tho main bar chaunel has
varied in depth from 19 to 21 feet at
low water; 2C feet are required in a
wide, direct and stable channel, and
SO feet are desirable for tho deep ves
sels needed by tho Columbia river
Tho jetty proper is now under con-
'slniction for a little more than IK
miles. Rock has been dumped to
the height of mean low water, over
an average of about 1 milo of this dis
tance. It is expected that by'the end
of the present working season which
will be about tho 1st of December, the
jetty tramway will bo advanced about
ono-half milo further. v
Within tho last year a marked
change has taken place on Clatsop
Spit and in the channel over tho Co
lumbia river bar. Tho Spit shows de
cidedly more bare surface, at low
water than formerly, and the chan
nel of tho river has a decided tendency
towards a straight course out to sea.
Tillamook Chute, whero there were
indications that a new channel was
being cut southward across Clatsop
Spit when the work was commenced,
is now being closed, although
the jetty-work is not jet within
one-half mile of it. It is observed
that as tho matlrcss-work is carried
out lho Fand-spit builds up on tho
south tide abreast of and sometimes
ahead of it At extreme low water
ono can walk on the snnd out as far as
the mattress work extends. Tho indi
cations now are that the work has
progressed to such a point that it is
having a manifest influenco upon tho
natural forces at work in tho vicinity,
land that these forces aro bringing
nlimit lho rp?iilf rlpsirnn.
Tbo appropriated for this
work is S78,500. Tho amount ex
pended to the end of tho present fiscal
vear is $614,252.92, leaving a balance
of S173,2 17.08 yot applicable to tho
further prosecution of tho work. Tins
amount will bo practically exhausted
about tho 1st of i)ecemlor next.

Corn Fed Oytcrs.
Most peoplo when they hear of
"corn fed ousters," laugh at what they
lake to be a little extravagance in
tended to convey the idea of fatness,
the association of ideas with extreme
fatness and corn fed hogs being nat
nral. But corn fed oysters are as
much a fact as com fed hogs. 0ster
cultivation in tho bays and sounds of
the east is conducted with as much
science, as the cultivation of agricul
tural products, and on many places on
the Chesapeake bay the oyster farmer
every morning strews with a liberal
hand, upon tho surface of tho water
covering his bed or tho bivalves, quan
tities of finely ground com meal, which
ramdly sinks to the bottom and is de
voured or absorbed by the gaping shell
fish, the result being an especially fat
and luscious ojster.
