The Value of the Rideau.

Captain Dan Noonan, manager of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company, who was in Ottawa last Thursday when a sand barge turned turtle in the Ottawa locks of the Rideau canal, and tied up navigation for twenty-four hours, says this accident should give the Canadian Pacific railway officials an idea of what use the Ottawa section of the Rideau canal is to navigation. At the upper end were lumber laden barges en route to Montreal and New York, while at the lower end were freighters from Montreal and Ottawa river ports, the scene making it look like old times on the canal before the C.P.R. was thought of and giving Ottawa people an idea of the traffic going on in the portion of the canal the C.P.R. suggested should be dried off and trains allowed to run on the canal bed. The captain remarked since the scheme of the C.P.R. came to view the people generally have found out that the Rideau canal is one of Canada's best assets, either from a marine or war standpoint.
