DEATHBLOW TO SEATTLE DITCH

Watdiliitetoo, Dec. 10. The l-ake
Union and Washington nnl, better
known as the "Seattle ditch,'' is dead,
so (ar as this anil several snlnetpient
eongrerrs are concerned. Chairman
HtirtMi. of the house committee on riv
ers and harbors, todav received the re
Mirt of a H-cial brl of army engirt
ccri. which examiuetl this project last
summer, and the report is decidedly
adverse, ami carrle such weight that
congrcM will not think nf building this
famous artificial waterway. Several
years ago another iMMrd tumul down
this ajini project as loo expensive.
The new rcort, conpleil with the re
port of til) prcvioiij boards, places the
"Pesltle dlteh" on the congresiional
blacklist, and means that, when anoth
er river ami harbor hill Is pas-d, there
will be no provision for It. In fact,
llm only way an appropiiatinn can be
eeurcd will lie to .! secure a report
nf a tine lioard of army engineers favor
lnu the ptoji-cl, but sucb rcort is not
1 kly to ever be recti rttl.
