known several routes to Kock Island

not snccer-sfnl the past year, have not

Owing to unavoidable delays and
heavy weather on the great lakes, thj
members of the Inland Waterways
commission, who are to be in Roe'i
Island tomorrow, did not leave St. Paul
until yesterday morning. They did not
reach St. Paul until Thursday night
as they expected, but Colonel Durham
of the engineers' office here states tint
the Col. A. Mackenzie, on which the
party is making the trip down the
river, will reach Rock Island on sched
ule time between o and 1 o'clock to
morrow afternoon. While the water
on the upper river is high and will
prevent a view of the dams and other
improvements, the trip will be a most
interesting one. Captain Frank B.
Martin, master of the Col. A. Macken
zie, states that a better time for such
a trip could not have been chosen.

The party is to be met tomorrow
at Clinton by the entertainment com

members of the commission.
There is trouble at Sherrard, and
C. A. Samuelson, former representa
tive, and president of the Sherrard
village board, appears to have made a
mistake which is the cause of the row.
Rev. A. C. Kelley of Sherrard appar
ently is the victim. Recently Mr. Sam
nelson went to Peoria to investigate
the record of E. Louis Kelley, who
was indicted in Peoria forwrecking
the Peoples Savings bank, about the
time of the suicide of Rev. George
Simmons. Mr. Samuelson found much
against E. Louis Kelley, and return
ing, it is said, to have confused Rev.
E. Louis Kelley with Rev. A. C. Kelley
of Sherrard. Then Rev. A. C. Kelley
began to get busy. He has shown
that Rev. E. LouU Kelley is in Chi
cago and lias never been near Sher
rard, and according to Peoria news
papers the Sherrard preacher promises
trouble for Mr. Samuelson and others
who took up the story and prepared
for a church trial to fire liiiu.
