Steamer Ten Broeck Tied Up at
Davenport Levee by
B0ILEES NOT IN GOOD SHAPE
Probable Fine Incurred by Trip
the Canal After Official
Inspectors Cary and Knapp hav
condemned the engines of the Ten
Uroeck, which has been engaged in
the tewing trade from the local port.
The attention of the inspectors was
called to the condition of the steam
er's engines a short time ago with the
result that an inspection was ordered
and resulted in finding the boilers in a
condition which was at least unsafa,
if not absolutely dangerous. The
owners of the craft then represented
to the inspectors tha'J; ft would be
necessary to take the steamer to Lc-
l la ire. am! nave it put on the ways
mere uuring tlie tune tunt the neces
sary repairs were being made which
the state of the boat's machinery
would require. The inspectors agreed
to this and issued a special permit
for the trip from Davenport to Le
Claire, as is required by the govern
ment regulations in such cases.
1 he latest development- in the case
is an extra trip which the boat seems
to have taken to the Hennepin canal
wilh a tow of barges contrary to the
mandate, of the Inspectors and against
the rules and regulations provided by
the uoveriiment in such cases. On the
return from the 'canal the boat wa
ordered tied up at the Davenport
levee, and it is still there at the foot
of Koek Island street awaiting the
action of the inspectors. It is cus
tomary in such cases to levy a heavy
tine on the offenders, and it is expect
ed that such will be the method pur
sued in this particular instance. A
vet no notice of a tine has been re
ceived at the government customs of
tice in this city, though the notice ol
condemnation was handed in a couple
of days since.
Deckhands Are Scarce.
the Diamond Jo line reports a seri
ous shortage of deck hands. The rate
of pay that these men are now get
ting has advanced to $" a month
with board. The work is hard while
it lasts, hut between towns there is
nothing to do. and there are plenty
of opportunities tor rest. 1 he neirro
is Ihe article most in use in this man
ner, but there are white men who
would not. turn down the chance at
that line of employment on the terms
IrrrpTnrrrtient work on the irpprr
Mississippi began Saturday. Most of
it consists of raising old dams and
building new ones between Urown

the vicinity- of Dusbach. which have
for years been a great hindrance to
navigation between Dubuque and Wi
nona during low -water, will be re
moved. To accomplish this improve
ment there will be built a series of
wing dams which will confine the
channel to a narrow passage way and
insure a depth of about live feet dur

Uequests are coining to Chicago

who have both the ambition and the

that of other great modern business
