From the tone o:' the resolution! sent
out in tbe associate d press reports of the
declarations of tbe -be Cincinnati water
way convention, the natural conclusion
to be arrived at is that tbe Hennepin
canal was most bea nifully and carefully
ignored. To those who read the name of
lion. J. II. Hurphj, of Davenport, as
chairman of tbe con mitte on resolutions,
th is appeared strange too, for it is reason
able to suppose thai. "Our Jerry" would
Tiot have permitted uny resolutions to re
ceive his endorseme its that did not only
suitably refer to tbe canal, but frive it a
good send off, and demand that congress
recognize its imrUnce. Happily,
though strangely, the associated press
did not fully report the resolutions adopt
ed by the convention and a very important
one, a declaration in fact that congress
cannot read without thinking about, was
suppressed in tbe .elegraphic reports.
It pertained to the Hennepin canal.
Congressman Oest returned from Cin
cinnati this aflernooii, and when asked
by an A Rous representative as to why
the canal was ignored in the convention,
his reply was:
"The Hennepin rtnal nevet received
such an endorsement as it did in that
convention, notwithstanding that Illinois
bad but two representatives in the con
vention Congressmai Henderson and
myself, but with the aid of ex -Congress
man Murphy we prepared and presented
a revolution, setting up me claims
of Hennepin in language that
was not unmistakable. Why it
was omitted in tb ) resolutions is
more than I can say, but we prepared,
and had adopted will, the other resolu
tions, one setting fo-th fully the com
mercial importance cf a waterway con
necting the lake sys'em with the Mis
sissippi, the construition of the canal
from Rock Island to Hennepin, and the
widening and deepint- of tbe Illinois &
Michigan canal, to tbu end that the up
per Mississippi valley might be put in di
rect communication w th the great lakes
and seaboard, and di manding of con
gress a suitable and immediate appro
priation for this very necessary project.
Yes, indeed, it was the best and most
forcible endorsement o my mind, that
tbe Hennepin has ever secured."

Wednesday night's heavy downpour of
rain was a good test of the stability of
the new pavement against the force of
the elements, and the brick surface stood
the ordeal admirably. Only a little
depression appeared in the block between
Eighteenth and Nineteenth streets, and
it was readily accounted for by the. fail
ure of tbe property holders to put in
their sidewalk at the proper grade back
of the curbing and thus strengthen the
curbing and preventing the sand be
tween the two courses of brick from
working out. There is also, as there has
been for some time, a depression about
the shut-off pipe in the middle of the
street east of Nineteenth street, but this
is due to the fact that the sand was not
packed sufficiently solid when it was put
in. All these defects can be readily
Those made Wednesday night, how
ever, should serve as a warning to the
mayor to remove the cause by ordering
all sidewalks put down in accordance
with tbe grade along Second avenue as
elsewhere in the city before winter
weather comes on. The city's executive
should attend to this without delay.
Tbe space between the car track inter
sections has been paved with Bardolph
brick on tbe Milan road as well as the
Moline & Rock Island, President Daven
port having previously contracted with
Supt. Scbnitger, of tbe Holmes lines,
both for the paving material and Johns
ton rail for replacing the track through
that portion, this with the Holmes cros
sings giving uniformity to the intersect
The paying of tbe space between tbe
car tracks as far as the went side of
Seventeenth street was completed this
morning, and tbe paving operations were
suspended for the remainder of the week,
owing to a delay in tbe shipment of
Galesburg brick, occasioned by the loss
of a kiln that was intended for Rock
Island. Supt. Nevins then set his entire
force to work grading tbe block west of
Seventeenth street, and hopes to accooos
plisb tbis in time to commence paving
again Monday morning, when he ex
pects another consignment of Galesburg
The first cars of the 40,000 Cambridge

A Merloas Miahap.
Ei-Alderman C. J. Larkin, senior
member of the contracting firm of Lark
in & Stephens, met with a very serious,
and indeed greatly to be regretted, mis
bap this morning. He was directing the
unloading of the material for the flag
stone walk to be laid in front of Mc
Cabe's buildings by tbe firm, wben one of
tbe great four-ton slabs of sandstone
slid off the wagon, and before Mr. Lark
in could escape, caught his right foot
against the building, and held ii last.
With remarkable grit and self-posses
sion be stood the suspense and ordeal of
having the stone removed, until his foot
could be relessed from its agonizing po-,
sition. He was then conveyed to his
home on Elm street, where Drs. Trues-
dale and Craig attended him.
The physicians were surprised to find
upon examination that there were no
bones broken, though the foot was very
badly bruised, although there is a severe
puncture about six inches above tbe ankle.
occasioned, perhaps, by tbe projecting
ragged edge of the slab. The doctors
apprehend no serious results.
The force of the blow was such that it
cracked the front of the old building be
tween which and the stone Mr. Larkin's
foot was wedged.
Whan Ho TV a m Clerk.
The Man About Town numbers among his
friends a gentleman now well up in tbe
worm, but wtio a few years ago, when still a
youth, was employed as an under clerk in
the oflice of a prosperous merchant. Among
his friends was a prominent church dignitary,
who was unacquainted with his whereabouts
and chanced one day to call upon hi em
ployer. Recognizing in the clerk an old ac
quaintance, be gave him a most cordial
greeting. After his departure th , t-mt.
turning to tbe clerk, remarked: "It seems to
me that your social aspirations are a llttl
The clerk rejoined: "And it asema to me
that my empjoyer is impertinent. The
argument grew heated and ended in blows,
the merchant getting decidedly the worst of
it To remler the matter worse, the sUva
was overturned, setting fire to the store, and
the merchant called lustily for the polina.
Badly frightened, and with visions "f jails
and juries in his mind, the clerk fled breath
less from the store and ran blindly away from
the scene of the disturbance, pursued by the
guardians of tbe peace. Enpy1n(j a hospital,
he turned in at the gate, and fell at the door
in a heap. One of the sisters came and bad
bun assisted to bed, where be lay for two
weeks, undergoing medical treatment and
quaking inwardly for fear of detection. In
the meantime the newspapers discussed his
strange disappearance, and the police ran
sacked the town for him in vain. He suc
ceeded in deceiving the attendants, who re
garded his condition with alarm, but at tbe
end of two weeks they pronounced him suffi
ciently recovered to leave tbe hospital. He
paid his bill, slipped qulotly out of town, and
his old employer still wonders what manner
of fate befell him. St. Louis Republic.
Tbe Advantages of "Forty Winks."
Bleep is closely connected with tbe question
of diet; "good sleeping" was a noticeable fea
ture in tbe large majority of Dr. Humphrey's
cases. Bound, refreshing sleep k of the ut
most consequence to the health of the body,
and no substitute can bo found for it as a re
storer of vital energy. Sleeplessness is, how
ever, often a source of great trouble to elderly
people, and one which is not easily relieved.
Narcotic remedies are generally mischievous;
their first effects may be pleasant, but the
habit of depending upon them rapidly grows
until they become indispensable. When this
stage has been reached the sufferer is In a far
worse plight than before. In all cases th
endeavor should be made to discover whether
the sleeplessness bo duo to any removable
cause, such as indigestion, cold, want of exer
cise, and the like. In regard to sleeping in
tbe daytime, then is something to be said
both for and against the practice. A nap of
"forty winks" in tbe afternoon enables many
aged people to get through the rest of the day
in cpmf ort, whereas they feel tired and weak
wben deprived of this refreshment. If they
rest well at night there can be no objection
to tbe afternoon nap, but if sleeplessness be
complained of, tbe totter should be discon
tinued for a time. ktostold people find that
a reclining posture, with the feet and legs
raised, is better than .the horiaontal position
for tbe afternoon nap. Digestion proceeds
with more ease than when the body is recum
bent. Fortnightly Review.

crop this year.
NEW HANK BUILDING.
APIaaThat la Likely t lve Reek
Islaaa m Very Haaasens Baaiaeaa
Prompted no doubt by the already ex
pressed determination of Mitchell &
Lynde to rebuild their present business
block on Second avenue and bounded by
East and West Seventeenth street, some
of the heaviest stockholders of one of the
other banking houses of the city have
been recently discussing the advisability
of erecting a new and handsome building
for its own occupancy. The bank is in a
position to make such an investment and
the heaviest stockholders and directors of
tbe institution believe it would be a pay
ing one. Indeed the project has gone so
far in its discussion that certain sites on
Second avenue have been negotiated for
and it is more than likely now that one
will be purchased within a few days, and
that next spring tbe new building will
The intention is to erect a block that
will not only be creditable as far as ap
pearances are concerned, but so de
signed as to make it of great utility, not
only as a banking bouse, but other busi
ness purposes; to have desirable and con
venient suites of rooms for office uses.
But one of tbe most important designs
of those having tbe project in hand is to
so arrange the upper story that it may be
used as a grand temple for the various
secret society organizations of the city,
conveniently furnished with ban
quet snd dsnce halls, ante-rooms,
etc. The building would be built
in part by these orders, and
owned in part by them,' so that instead
of paying out rent continuously their
funds would he put out in a payiDg in
vestment and something that after
awhfle would yield an income instead of
a drain on their treasuries.
The public would rejoice to have such
plans fully consummated. What Rock
Island needs, as much as anything else,
is modern architecture in some of its
business blocks and all endeavors in that
direction should be encouraged. Were
it not that Mitchell & Lynde propose
erecting a handsome building the first
thing next spring, room might be made
in the new block for the public library,
board of education rooms, and even the
postoffice. New building projects should
receive all the advantages possible.
