AID FOR NORTHWEST
Appropriations Recommended for
Rivers and Harbor?.
COMPLETE COLUMBIA BAR JETTY
Wants Money for Calilo Canal, Upper
Columbia and Snake Rivera
and Gray Harbor.
Washington, Nov. 14. In his annual
report made public today, General Mac-
Kenzlc, chief of army engineers, recom
mends Uiat congress, at ltd coming sea
aion, appropriate tho $1,700,000 which
was authorized laet session to complcto
tho jetty at the mouth of the Columbia
river. When this appropriation was
authorized It was be I loved that the
amount would completo tho ptoject,
but owing to tho Increased price of
lumber and material ami the damage
caused by winter storms it is now be
lieved that a supplementary estimate
covering tho Increase In coat will have
to bo submitted.
General MacKenxIe also belcolvca
that $80,000 or (90,000 should be ox.
ponded putting new boilers in tho
dredgo Chinook, which is now unsea
worthy. It this done, the dredge can
be put back to work on the bar, and It
Is his belief that it could greatly aid
the courentrated tidal current in broad
ening and deepening the channel now
In process of formation.
Tho last river and harbor bill autho
rized the appropriation of 1500,000 for
the Cell'o canal, in addition to $100,
000 then made arailabte. U Is recom
mended that (his amount be appropri
ated at the coming session so that work
can bo continued without delay. That
will leave nearly $3,000,000 yet to be
Geneial MacKenlio recommends that
congress provide for the construction of
a revetment opposite Albany and for
the extension of the existing revetment
at Independence In tho Wllliarnctte
river, so as to maintain the existing
alignment of the river bank and chan
nels. No new appropriation is recom
mended. The improvement of the
Upper Columbia and Snake rivers is
proceeding and tho work will be Unfill
ed by the time the Celilo canal Is com
C'eted. Further improvements of Coos
ay depend upon the report of the spe
cial sixny engineer board appointed to
deteru lae the advisability of deepening
the channel across the bar. If this
board reports favorably it will submit
the project and estimates which will for
the basis of legislation in the next river
and harbor bill.
Tillamook bay and other harbors
along the Oregon coast aro not to be
further improved until the completion
of the dredge, for which $100,000 was
appropriated at the last section.
General MacKenzle also recommends
an appropriation oi $40,000 to complete
the dredging of the Puyallup waterwry,
Tacoma harbor. No appropriation la
asked fnr the canal connecting Lake
Washington with Puett sound, near
Seattle, this work-having Uen under
taken by private enterprise. Four hun
dred thousand dollars authorized last
eesslon Is asked to completo the 0,000
foot jetty at the entrance to Grays har
bor. The report states that the dredge be
ing built for coast harbors will operate
along the Washington as well as the
Oregon ccast, and In numerous tributa
ries of i'uget sonnd.
General MacKenzIo's report deals also
with the question of tho Improve
ments of rivers and liarbort. It sub
mits estimates aggregating more than
$27,000,000 for the fiscal j ear 1000,
which will be Included by Secritury
'J alt in his report to congress.
At the last session of congress a rlrcr
and harbor appropriation bill was
passed carrying a largo amount of mon
oy and authorizing tho War department
to enter into contracts fcr various pro
jects. Because of tho Improbability of
any legislation of that character during
the coming session, except to make ap
propriations for csrrylng on work al
ready authorized ami contracted for,
Geneial MacKenzle does not submit
any estimates for new projects.

Appointment or Hepburn Commission
Sots Precedent for Statas.
New Yoik, Nov. 16. in New York
financial circles tho view was freely ex
pressed today that tho action of Gover
nor Hughes) In appointing n commis
sion to recommend changes In tho New
York banking Inns may result In n
slmltat movement extending to othei
sections of tho country niul In the en
actment of legislation which will place
stato hanks on a bnsls and under suxr
vision inoio closely akin to that of the
national batiks. A. P.. Hepburn, presl-
dent of tho Chaso National bank, nml
ex-controller of tho currency, who, It Is
generally conceded, will bo chairman
ol the llitghee) commission, is a strong
advocate of tho national tanking sys
tem. It is believed that Mr. Hepburn
will personally recommend to his asso
ciates that the stato law should be
mado to conform as nearly as possible
to the Federal statutes.
Tho toport of the commission Is
looked forward to by bankers general
ly as likely to express at onco the high
est and most conservative opinion as to
reforms in the way of stato llnancla!
legislation. Many bankers are Inclined
to believe that tho report of tho com
mission mado to Mr. Hughes may form
the framework of legislation In many
other states. Tho recommendations of
the commission aro therefore looked
upon as being national as well as local
Mr. Hepburn said today that tho
commission will get to work Inside of
one week. Trust companies, it Is un
derstood, will come In for a largo share
of consideration, and It Is believed that
the suggestion will be mado that the
laws governing them should conform to
those relating to tho tegular bunks.
