This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you:

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

PREFACE. 

The compilation of this volume of the index to the annual reports 
of the Chief of Engineers follows the order of arrangement of sub- 
jects, titles, and headings, and the grouping of waterways, as adopted 
and used in the two preceding volumes, except where that method 
would be inconsistent with the modifications found advisable from 
practical use of the index. The only important departure from the 
previous compilation, in this respect, is tne placing of the paragraph 
titles in logical order in preference to alphabetical arrangement. 

The subject matter has been reduced in volume, and, in so far as 
possible, repetition has been avoided. The purpose of indicating 
where information may be found in the reports has been kept in 
view, in preference to embodying a digest of the subject matter in 
the index itself. 

The lettering and numbering of waterways, since they do not 
appear to serve any useful purpose in the ind.ex, have been omitted 
from this volume. It is believed that the waterway names alone 
are sufficient for all index purposes. 

Abbreviations that would require frequent reference to an explana- 
tory table to determine their meaning, have been avoided. B.. 
report; vol., volume; BERH, Board of Engineers for Rivers ana 
Harbors; pre. ex., preliminary examination; ex., examination; sur., 
survey; EL D., House Document; E., 13, 790, Report, 1913, page 
790; are the only contractions and abbreviations used, except those 
in general use, such as names of States, rank of officers, etc. 

At the back of this volume is a consolidated finding list embracing 
the index matter contained in all three volumes. 

Preceding the indCjX matter pertaining to each district, in Volume 
I of this index, is a list of names of all the waterways in the district 
as weU as a map of the territory embraced therein. 

A history of the several indexes to the reports of the Chief of En- 
gineers, the plans followed in preparing them, and a statement of 
the advisability of preparing the index in its present form, are given 
in the preface to Volume I. 

The preparation of the present volume, authorized by section 10 
of the river and harbor act approved August 8, 1917, was begun in 
July, 1917. The work was suspended September 30, 1917, when 
the compiler was ordered to France for duty with the American 
Expeditionary Forces, as chief clerk of the Air Service. Upon his 
return from duty overseas, April 1, 1919, work was resumed and the 
compilation completed, under the supervision of the undersigned. 

The entire work was abstracted, compiled, and prepared for the 
printer by Mr. Claude Lindsey, formerly assistant to tne director of 
public works, Philippine Government. 

The manuscript was reviewed by the Engineer officers in charge 
of the several districts, and many valuable suggestions for improve- 
ment of the index were received and incorporated therein.

Lieutenant Colonel, Corps of Engineers, 

United States Army.

duty to ^ve notice to the persons or corporations owning or controlling the structure 
to alter it so as to render navigation through or under it reasonably free, easy, and 
unobstructed, first giving the parties reasonable opportunity to be heard."
