THE CANAL ROUTES.
HJ. IV. If. Xarahall Talks Abuut Ihcn
nnd the Work in Piogrrs.
There is no controversy c-xict-
ing whatever over canal rouUs,
so far as I am permitted to judge,"
said Ma. W. it. Marshall to an
Akucs representative at the Harper
this moruiug. "There is no differ
ence of opinion as to routes," he con
tinued, -for tho sirup:e reason that
there is nothing to base varying
s-entiments upon. We can"t begi'n to
talk about routes until the surveys
are completed. Then the most feas
ible one will develop and will be
adopted regardless cf whatever con
tending interests may arise at the
time. What 1 have been attcmping
to do is to convince your people out
here that I have no coal mines, ami
have no relations that have coal land
anywhere cither near to, or remote
from the section of tiie country
through which any line of the canal
may run. And furthermore, there
isn't, so far as I can ascertain, any
more coal in any one part cf the
country around there that is capable
of extensive future development than
there is another. I have always
considered the entire Ftate of Illinois
a coal lield, but in the immediate
vicinity of the canal surveys any
line chosen will reach as good min
ing lands as any other.
Aliuut the Itcck Hirer.
There has been considerable said
about the improvement of llio ltock
river channel, and some papers have
been free to condemn we for not
pushing the matter. Now the sim
ple facts cf the case are tint the work
cannot be done without dredges, and
dredges cannot be takca where they
will clo any good until the Moline
bridge case is decided. I will have i
the dredges, and am off now to Lvons
where they are leiug built to look
after them, but I cannot do anything
with them until I can get through
the bridge, and until this bridge
question is settled."
The Gencseo News, speaking of the
charges that have buun made con
cerning Maj. Marshall's interests in
coal lands. Eays:
Maj. Marshall, chief of engineers
of the Hennepin canal, has been con
fused in tho press, tho News among
the rest, with Capt. Marshall, father
ef Dr. Marshall, of Gencseo. lu jus
tice to the major, he should be re
lieved of the charge of owning coal
land on Koek river, also of being the
father of the doctor. Doth bearing
military titles, and both being named
Marshal, doubtless led to the error.
We have thom sorted now, and here
after there will bo no mistake."

Parker, left his vehicle, containing
Lis two children, tied ontside his
shop on Seventeenth street this
morning. A train frightened the
horse, and with a frantic jnmp the
animal broke away and started up
the thoroughfare. Mr. Hudson
succeeded in catching bold of
the animal's nick, bnt fell
and the wagon passed over him.
At the corner of Second avenue
tho conveyance collided with a
farmer's wagon, overturned and
threw the chiluren out onto the
pavement. Mr. Hudson and the
little boy wero seriously in
jured, tho little girl escaping. The
injured were taken into IJcngston's
drug store and lr. ltarlh summoned
to administer for them. They were
afterward taken home in the city
ambulance. The farmer's team
frightened at Mr. Hudson's runaway

loading the occupant out on the
street, but without injury.

that Mr. Hudson Lad sustained seri

of internal injuries, and although

The work of ridding the streets of
women and girls of questionable
traits, continues. Sadie Frvsinger,
a 17 vear-old Milan girl is the latest
subject of arrest. She was arrested
last night by Ollicer Bender while
emerging from an alley on Sixteenth
street back of Second avenue. She
was iu company with a member of

attractive and intelligent appearing
girl, but she lias loose ways, borne

ponce in an attempt to run away
from home, ller mother smoothed
the matter oyer, and Sadie remained
quiet for a while. But her infatua
tion for the sporty side could not be
overcome and she resumed her
crooked ways. She remained ut
headquarters over night and this
morning Magistrate Schroeiler im
posed a lino of 10 and costs, which
she was not prepared to liquidate.
Blushing with shame, Sadie at
