Robert M. Ollphant, ox-prcsldcnt of

of tho other coal men, who have testi
fied that the price of coal to the public
Is to bo raised 10 cents a ton a month

KILL HARTS' PLAN
GOVERNMENT EN0INEERS HAVE NEW
They Favor m Ship Canal-Submerge
Dam U Meld to De Impracticable
Work Will Now He Held Vp Until
1904 Major Umgfltt Ordered to
Washington, Juno 10. Tbo Doard of
Army Engineers that roccntly visited
tho obstructions In the Columbia Wror
between Tho Dalles and Celllo, has de
cided to abandon tho Ilnrto plan for
opening of tho rlvo rat that point,
nnd In lieu thereof will prepare plans
and estimates for a contiuou ship ca
nal from tho foot of tho dalles raplda
to tho head of Celilo Falls. Tho Harts
plan, as haa been heretofore explained,
contemplated tho construction of a sub
merged dam In the Columbia, with a
view to draining out Fivo Mllo Itapids.
Tho river was then to bo opened
around othor obstructions by means of
two or thrco short canals.
Tlio engineers, on their recent trJc
to Oregon, visited tho scene of the pro
posed improvement, and, after study
ing tho nntural conditions and eur
roundlnga, concluded, by unanimous
voto. that tho dam proposition wad al
together Impracticable. In tho first
place, whllo Captain Harts proposed
constructing Jhls dam at a point where
the river is but 200 feet wldo. ho sup
podod Its dopt wns only 40 or 50 feet,
and so based tho calculation. Major
Langfltt determined, nfter careful
SOUndlneS. thnt thn rinntt. . -
p60 feet, and tho velocity of the current
' ereai mm u would be practically
Impossible to place In position the ma
terial for tho dam. The members of
tho board concluded that a stream of
sufficient volumo and great enough
current to cut a gorgo 200 feet wldo,
and of nearly the samo depth through
solid rock, could not bo dammed arti
ficially for anything short of an unwar
ranted sum, nnd they entertain grave
aoubta whether a dam could ever bo
successfully built there at any cost
When thoy found that tho keystone
of Harts' plaacoIitot bVconsidered.
and determined that evenRmo"dlflca-" "
tlon of tho Harts plan on a practical
basis, could not bo carried out for tho
amount thnt hod been authorized for
this improvement, tho board determin
ed to prepare rough plans and esti
mates for tho construction of a con
tinuous canal, extending nround nil the
obstructions between The Dalles and
In nccordanco with this determina
tion, tho board requested authority for
the making of necessary survcyd for
such a canal, and authority has been
granted, tho work to be carried out un
der direction of Major Langfltt At
this tlmo tho board will ventuto no
rough cstlmnto of the cost of a con
tluous canal, although an catimato
mndo by an old board placed tbo figure
at $10,000,000. whereas tho Harts pro
ject was estimated to codt approxi
mately $4,000,000. It Is by no means
assuorod that tho now cslmates will
bo as high as tho former figure, as
tbo board, boforo reporting, will have
a comprehensive survey upon which to
baso Its estimates, and a fairly accu
rate catimato of the cost of the Im
provement la expected.
