Proposals on Moline Lock and
Harbor Construction Exam-
ined Here March 12
BY MAJ. C. S. RICHE
Work Under $386,000 Appropriation to
Be Commenced on Approval -of
Contracts by Chief Engineer.
. At the local office of the United
States engineers at noon March 12,
Maj. C. S. Riche will open the bids on
the construction of the Moline lock, ana
the . contracts will be awarded. The
specifications provide that the work
shall be commenced within CO days af
ter the approval of the contracts,
which will be forwarded to the chief
engineer. The work, according to the
specifications of the contract, must be
completed by April 1. 100S. The appro
Sllpriation made for this improvement
over a year ago. is SUSCOOO. and this
provides for the construction of the
lock, the dredging of Moline harbor,
and the deepening of the channel. The
letting of the contract will in, a meas
ure mark the attainment of the ambi
tions of the people of Moline, and the
result of hard work on the part of Mo
line organizations and citizens of this
.The construction of the lock will
give Moline a harbor on the Mississip
pi river, accessible for river traffic, and
will also form one of the important
links in the C-foot channel for the up
per Mississippi. The dredging of the
channel and construction of the lock
will add about 2 feet to the head of
water for the Rock Island arsenal wa
ter power, thus improving the plant.
Surveyed in 1903.
The official survey, on which the de
signs for the work were based, was
made in 1903, by A. J. Stibolt. United
States engineer, of the local office. The
designs are the work of M. C. llarues,
assistant engineer, made under the di
rection of Maj. C. S. Itiche. The work
on the drawings has been in progress
at the local office for over a year. Tin-
lock will be constructed under the di
rection of the local office.
Location of the Lock.
The Moline lock will be located
about half a mile down stream, from
the Sears island, or as officially known,
Benham's island, on which stands the
ruins of the old Sears mill. The old
Sears dam, which keeps the water up
for the arsenal water power, will be re
moved on completion of the lock.
There will be a lift of J feet above the
rapids channel. A wing dam is now-
being constructed from the lower end
of Benham's Island, to the point where
the lock will be located, and the work,
of deepening the channel above Mo
line, inside of the long arsenal dam, is
also in progress. The arsenal dam ex
tends two and a half miles above the
island, and when the lock is complet
ed, and the proposed improvements
made which have not yet been provid
ed for by appropriations, the river traf
fic will be detoured through the lock.
and up through the slack water pro
tected by the wing dam, thus avoiding
about three and a haif mites of the
worst rapids of the entire upper river.
Before this can bo accomplished, how
ever, additional appropriations will be
required to provide for extensive
changes that will be necessary in the
channel above Moline.
Changes in Jurisdiction.
In connection with the construction
of the lock and harbor, the jurisdiction
of the ordnance department of Rock
Island arsenal has been divided, to
give the engineer's office jurisdiction
of a strip along the dike of Rock Is
land arsenal, from a point just below
the location of the lock, to the end of

The ordnance department will no longi'
or have jurisdiction over Benham's is
land, this being included in that of the
corps of engineers. A shore line is now
being established for the Moline har
bor, and when this is finally decided
upon, the city of Moline will be able
to build a levee out to the line. Some
disagreements have arisen between the
city and the. engineers over the-shore
line, and when these are settled, the
line wjI; be finally determined upon.
DOCTOR'S CERTIFICATE FALSE
Tenny Not Examined Before Fatal
Fight at San Francisco.
San Francisco, March G. Marry Ten-
ny's tragic death after his battle with
Frankie Neil was the result of a bold
fake. The young pugiiist was not in
any condition to fight. He was not ex
amined by a physician. The mysteri
ous "Dr. Day" is only a myth. These
facts were exposed yesterday after
noon by Frankie Neil and his second,
John Frayne, both of whom declared
they saw no physician prior to the
fight, and that Neil was not examined
in accordance with the law. Criminal
prosecution may result. The police are
holding the alleged certificate of "Dr.
Day" as evidence.

Davenport Turners, by a score of 50

half, and 10 in the second. McManus

the field baskets. In team work the

advantage of physical attributes. A
game had boon scheduled between the
company and the Davenjxjrt Methodist.-,
but' the church team failed to
appear. The game with the Turners

Philadelphia, March C. Tommy
O'Toole of Port Richmond had the bet
ter of a six-round bout with Harrv
Forbes of Chicago, the ex-champion
bantam-weight of the world, at the
Washington Sporting club last nicht.
O'Toole had all the be.-t of the ex
change in the second, third and fifth
rounds. Honors were even in the first
and fourth, while Forbes made. a Gar
rison finish and' had clearly the best of
the closing round. Forbes surprised
O'Toolo and his adherents in the sixtli
round by the pace lie set. He started
in with a rush, and with both arms
working like piston rods drove the
Port Richmond bantam-weight across
the ring. He opened up an old cut
on O'Toole's left cheek, from which
the blood trickled. Beyond this ncith
er man was badly marked at the end
of the contest.
