Houston Paat Staff Correspondent.
WASHINGTON. January 17. As pre-
viously Indicated in these dispatches the
Wsr Department has taken a firm stand
In favor of the intercoastal canal aa a
military waterway as well as for com-
mercial purposes. This was borne out
today In the lengthy report submitted to
Congress by Colonel Burr acting chief of
engineers in which he overrules pre-
vious reports of the board of engineers
for rivers and harbors as well as the
special . board created to consider this
waterwsy and comes - out squarely for
consideration of the Gulf Coast project
as a unit. This meets th long conten-
tion of Representatives Burgess and Gar-
ner who have Insisted that this was the
course to pursue to render the canal of
The report says in part:
"The chief of engineers does not agree
entirely with either board but he con-
curs with the special board aa to th. line
of route selected and with the board of
engineers for rivers and harbors as to
tha lack of urgency for any depth at
present in excesa of six feet along the
Florida Coast and of five feet elsewhere.
The chief of engineers believes also that
th. time has already come for a continu-
ous waterway from Florida to the Rio
Grand of the depths mentioned whenever
Congress shall have decided upon the
conatnictlon of an Intracoastal canal
across the northern part of Florida of the
AtlanUe to the Gulf.
"The chief of engineers believes that as

to ocean steamers. It wilt be very advan-
tageous eventually to all theae States to
connect the lower end of these streams
by an Inside coastal waterway which
shall afford at an early date a five -foot
draft waterway connection to all th. sec-
tions and especially to tho nearest ocean
"In view of the rapidly Increasing pro-
duction of the States and especially of
their Increasing output of coal and pe-
troleum and their othr natural resources
a continuous Inland waterway of even
five feet draft from Florida to the Rio
Grande must be of great value In the
early future not only to the developing
of exlating ocean ports but alao to the
development of the Inland and export
commerce of all 8tates concerned.
"It Is exceedingly desirable that wher-
ever rtghta-of-wav may be secured for a
fivo-foot channel the right -o(-way should
be made of sufficient width to allow of
the future enlargement of the channel to
nine feet depth and 100 foot width ahould

struction of Congress aa regards this sec-

man Hardy today Introduced a bill au-

In discussing the bill. Representative
Hardy said that while he was opposed to
a big navy for offensive operations he
was In favor of adequate defense and
as submarines were not calculated to

for naval supremacy he favored them as
sgalnst other branches of naval construc-
tion. H. also said th. Gulf Coast was
seriously exposed to attack not possess-
