Hearing Is Held On
The Deepening .d f The
Pamlico Riv& To 12 Ft
j Before Major A. E. Waldron. of
the corps of engineer*. U. 8. A.. a,
hearing was held at the Federal
building yesterday regarding the
deeping of the Pamlico river at
below Washington from 10 to 12 foet
and widening the channel from 100
to 360 feet. About twenty local cit
izens, including a special committee1
from the Chamber of Commerce, at
tended the hearing.
The committee, composed of Capf
tain George T. Leach, Harry McMntl
Inn and J. F. Cowell, made a com
prehensive report on the situation
and It is generally believed that the
report made a most favorable impres
sion, although, of course, Major Wal
dron had no comment to make.
A part of the report on the situa
tion readB as follows:
1. We are aware that the further
improvement of this rlvor must be
conditioned upon the commerce
thereon, existing and prospective.
The commerce on Pamlico and Tar
Rivers during the calendar year 1915
amounted to 286,716 tons, with a
valuation of $3,937,502.40 as collat
ed under the direction of the Engi
neer Officer. The greater part of this
traffic originates at and below Wash
ington. While this is quite a sub
stantial tonnago and the products
carried are diversified and valuable,
still It does not represent all of the
commerce upon this part of the river.
The Introduction of the motor boat
has brought Into use upon the flvor
a large number small b&ats en
gaged In local commerce.?0M|ned to
the river, and theM. torfjiU|<$' with- a.
large number of small salf boats, car
ry In the aggregate a large number
of passengers and quite a large ton
nage of freight. This freight Is usu
ally In small packages and of greater
comparative value. The commerce
upon the river as now collated is of
necessity done after the end of the
calendar year and the data obtained
Is dependent upon records kept by i
shippers and consignees. The pas- J
BengerB and freight carried by the
smaller class of motor boats and sail
boats is not recorded and, therefore,
not included In the estimate of traf
fic upon the river. There is now a
revival of interest in commerce upon
the river and there are indications
that the commerce will grow more
rapidly in the immediate future, for
jarlous reasons, Bome of whloh will
be hereinafter stated. We append
hereto a statement prepared by the1
Secretary of the Chamber of Com
merce of Washington, N. C.. giving
a partial summary of industrial,
plants on the. river and others which
are in course of construction, or
which are prospective in the near
In the river and harbor Act of 1912
Congress adopted the project for an
Inland waterway from Norfolk to
Beaufort Inlet, N. C., In accordance
with the report of the Engineers,
having a project minimum depth of
IS feet, with adequate widths. We
are Informed that the sum of $2,800,
000 has already been appropriated
toward the construction of this wa
terway. It will have a mlnlAurn
depth of 11- feet as above stated. 1
With auob completion of the Inland j
waterway an lrupetus will b* given to
traffic on Pajnlloo River, particularly
through trofllc, by reason of tha In
(ereaaad faftlUUea. With the cotn
of the Inland waterway , <$o
Rt^nr. It la tmpor'\nt that
tftfcr* rivet** far up aa Washington
ahull be coordinated with the Inland
waterway, and hare a almllar depth.
Of Id feet Otherwise bargea and
I Vtfefrr vosa^ie from Washington win
tie denied flie enjoyment of n aub
atantlal share Of the benefits accru
ing from the Inland waterways We
canhbt too atrongly emphasise the1
necessity of provfdhtf a depth on
Patnllco River aa far np aa Washing
ton ^responding with the depth or
the Inland Waterwty.
We iaka great pride in tfce state
ment that the aanmetpnttty of Waah?
Ington has take* the neceaanry stepa
to provide a municipal water termi
nal. The ally /haa aequlred. a water

containing warehouses, a water slip
along the warehouse, together with a
belt line tract connecting with at
least one of the railroads and cranes

fer of freight between the wate* car

ter carrier and the railroad. We
realise the necessity of adequate wa
ter terminals In the development of
water traffic, and of through traffic
carried partly by rail and partly by
water. So far as your committee are
aware, Washington, North Carolina,
is one among the few, If not the only
city between Baltimore and Jackson
