Congress last summer authorized the board of eneineers appointed in 1S00 to make a survey and estimates of the cost of the improvement of the upper Illinois river and the lower Pes Plainos for a deep waterway between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi. The magnitude of the undertaking is thoroly undertsood by those who are advocating it. and they firmly believe that the benefits that will follow will warrant the large expenditure necessary to make the' Mississippi river navigable to sea going ships. . n Indians and Chinks Barred.
