THE ROOK ISLAND TO ECONOMIZE
CANAL CASE WILL EE
TAKEN TO HIGHER COURTS
It is likely that the effort to pre
vent the use of the appropriation for
the Illinois Michigan canal will be
continued by Representative Richard
E. Burke, of Chicago, and others, in
spite of the outcome of the case at
Springfield yesterday, in which Judge
i rcightuu dissolved the iniunctiou
that had been secured in this conne
tion. As the order was made during
vacation of the court it va impossi
blc to prosecute an appeal, but- as tin
September term of court notice wa
given that the matter will be brought
up arain. .1 udgv Crciirhton, after
rendering his decision, eircssed tilt
opinion that the. matter was one that
should be carried up to the supreme
court as soon as possible so that the
oint at issue might be definitely de
In giving his decision Judge Crcigh
ton said: "As to the questions dis
cussed, I am of opinion that the court
has jurisdiction. I am also of opin
ion that no such contractual relations
exist between the slate oi' Illinois and
the United States as uUl make it
the duty of the legislatuie to eontin
ually appropriate money out of the
state treasury for the purpose of
keeping the canal crpct ually naviga
"The difficult question is to deter
mine the true meaning if the lan
guage found in the constitution
While I am of the opinion that neither
the relations of the state with tin
dated Slates nor the constitution of
the state make it mandatory upon the
general assembly to appropriate
money from the state treasury for
the purpose of maintaiiiiur the canal
in navigable condition, still 1 cannot
say that it clearly appears that it has
not the power to do so. I cannot say
it is clear that the constitution with
holds from the general assembly the
power to appropriate funds from the
state treasury for the purpose of pre
serving this piece of the state's own
property from decay and ruin."

that two of the trains on the Peoria

of the' trains said to be slated fer ob
livion is No. 103, arriving here at 5:55

piestion as to whether it will be No.
104, leaving Rock Island at 1:45 p.m..
or Ao. iiH), leaving here at 7:20 n. in.
Whether tho agitation tn the part
f the employes for higher wages has
had anything to do with it or not docs
net appear, but it is known that the
removal of one of the trains each way
between this city and Peoria has
