An Interesting Letter from Hon J
The .real Walerwai' Traced r om Its

la I ts favor.
Hoi. J. H. Murpby has written from
New Orleans to Secretary Wylie, of tbe
tri-cii? committee, an interesting circular
of an historical nature on the subject of
the Hennepin canal, and which the Ah
ouh has been furnished a copy of by Mr
Wylit . Mr. Murphy says:
In heae modern times and this age of
progress, civilization has hut two modes
of transportation by water and by rail
ann it is an admitted fact that water
trans lortalion is fifty per cent cheaper
man oy rail I he construction of this
canal will connect the Mississiopi
river with the great lakes, and thereby
make navigation continuous and complete
from St Paul to Chicago, and then by
iue ii aes to tnc ocean, and thereby give
to in. commerce of the east and the pro
duceis of the west, and northwest the
chea;Ht possible transport, which is bv
wate . And now I wish to call vour
close and serious attention to a fact that
is juitly entitled to thought and consid
eration, and that is that the Hennepin
cana improvement has received more
comriendation and endorsement than any
wate improvement in the I nited States.
Hnd in proof of ibis statement I wish vou
to re id carefully the following. In the
year 1845 a water convention was held
in M -mpbis, Tenn. It was represented
by o -cr five hundred delegates from six -t
'en states, and tbe following resolution
P-ix-.ii that body unanimously:
K'toicen, mat the project of con
necting tbe Mississippi river with the
lake of tbe north by a canal and with
ttie Atlantic Ocean, is a measure worthy
of tb ; enlightened consideration of con
In 1872 the president of the United
Sstati s deemed it his duty to call the at
tention of congress by a special racsssge
to tbe importance of this canal ami other
wattr improvements, and suggested the
selection of a committee with power to
investigate and report. In accordance
with ihe president's wish, the senate se
lected seven out of that body. Senator
Win lorn, the present secretury of the
trea ury. was selected chairman. The
report made by the committee to the
senate not only endorsed the construc
tion of the Hennepin canal, hut furnished
stro lg reasons why it should he built in
the merest of commerce.
Oi June 10. 1874. Mr. Hiirlhut. in tbe
For y-third congress-, made a report from
the committee on railways and canals,
ec mmending us construction The
on -lusion of said report is as follows:
"Upon a full consideration of the whole
matter, your committee are of tbe opin
ion that no improvement of the same
pro isble cost would be productive of so
gret.t a benefit, and tbe benefit to be
pro luced would not be confined to the
titate of Illinois alone lu which tbe work
is s lusted, but would directly and inevit
abl embrace the states of Iowa, Wi con
sin Hnd Minnesota, and indirectlv affect
til the states lying west of these, whose
railroad lines would bring produce down
to he shipped by the river and canal.
Yo lr committe, therefore, recommend
the passage of the following bill," which
an a bill to construct said canal . At the
firs' session of the Forty eighth and
fo-ty ninth congresses, the undersigned
mm ig a member of congress from Inwa
am being on the railway and canal com-
uiiUee, oy unanimous consent of said
conmitiee, made a report to ibe Forly
eignh and Fony ninth congreasea in
ravor of said canal, and asking that an
appropriation be made to commence its
The Forty seventh conpress ordered a
xuiv.-v of said canal and tbe river and
ba bor committee appropriated $30,000 to
pa; the expense.
rlajor W. H. H Benyaurd of the civil
engineers corps, made said survey; bis
re -oris and estimates are on file, and I
an. confident a careful reading of said re
port will convince Ihe most skeptical that
tb s canal should be built wit lout delay
In 1884 President Arthur saw proper to
ca I the attention of the Forty-eithth
congress by special message to the im
pr rtance of this water connection, and
tb ;rein recommended action.
The general assembly of the state of
Iowa did in 1S4 1870. 1874, 1880. 1882.

crnstruct this canal, and for reasons
sttted. the legislature of the state of II
ii.ois has repeatedly done the same, and
utged their congressmen to vote an ap
Every convention that has been held
r tbe interest of western water ways has

We will refer to some, one held in Quincy ,
III., in 1879, in St. Louis in 1880, in tbe
city of Davenport, Iowa, in 1881, one in
ew Orleans, in lisS'i, one in St. Paul in
Sjptember, 1885, one held in Washing
ton, D C , February, 1884, one held in
!V emphia in 188i, and one held in Cin-
c nnati the 4tb and 5th of last September;

i ennepin canal, but requested this, the
F ifty-first congress, to make an appro
It has been twice endorsed bv the na-
t onal board of trade held in Washington,
July, 1884 and 1885. and by the indus
trial congress held in Chicago in May.

assed resolutions urging congress to

ion of railroad and water routes; that

;o that report from pages 167 to 175 in
Musive, it will he seen that that commit
tee, after careful inyestigation, con
cluded this water improvement was abao
lutely necessary in the interest of com
merce, and that the general government
should without delay construct it.
Tbe commercial bodies of Chicago, St.
Paul, Minoeapolia, St. Louis, La Crosse.
Duluth, Davenport. Muscatine, Rock Isl
and, Moline, Buffalo, Syracuse and New
York, have all memorialized congress for
The New York board of trade and
transportation with a membership of over
one thousand business firms, has twice
endorsed this canal after careful investi
The produce exchange of New York
City, which numbera three thousand
members, not only gave this canal its
unanimous endorsement after reference to
a committee, but prefaced that endorse
raent by saying "That this was the first
time since their organization that they
bad recommended the general government
to aid or construct internal improve
ments, or bad asked or advised their rep
resentativea in congress to vote appropri
ations for internal improvements of any
kind that this was an exception? And
if they were not firmly convinced that it
had merit they would not depart from
their universal rule.
By a provision of the river and harbor
act of August 5th, 1885, tbe secretary of
war was authorized and directed to ap
point a board of three engineers from the
U. S. army, whose duty it was to examine
and report, the sum of f 15.000 being ap
propriated therefor. Said board made a
report and by facts and figures gave a
reason ft r tbe construction of said canal
and recommended action. This report
wss approved by J. C. Doane, Brig Gen
chief of engineers, and by him sent to the
secretary of war for his action. On Jan
uary 10th, 1887. the secretary of war
with his approval and endorsement, sent
said report to the Forty-ninth congress
which was referred to the committee on
rivers and harbors for action.
And now I refer to an endorsement
that should not only command respect
but is entitled to careful thought, and
while it is last, it is not least I refer to
the action of the Enighta of Labor, who
sent two hundred and sixty-three memo
rials from that number of local assem
bles to their congressmen, urging them
to vote an appropriation for the Henne
pin canal. These memorials came from
twenty-five states of this union, and can
be found on the records of the Fortyi
ninth congress. From this endorsement
will any one doubt its merit V No, they
will not. and cannot, for as first stated,
no public improvement in tbe United
States has received such an endorsement
as the Henneoin canal. Then let us
build it. The wish of

FORGER ISE'S CASE.
Failure of an Attempt to Take Him
Here of His Baseally Transactions
Heard lrn-Wkit He Did at St
This morning Capt. P. Mostyn, of the
Omaha police force, arrived from Spring
field, where he had procured a requisition
from Governor Fifer, for the forger, Ed
ward 1-e. alias Thatcher, alias Adams,
who is wanted in Omaha on three
charges two for forgery and one for
larceny. Capt. Mostyn had previously
notified Marshal Miller by wire of his
coming, and it was supposed there would
not be any grave objection to permitting
the prisoner to go to Omaha, where he
actually committed the crime, instead of
holding him here. Landlord Ne
gu, who is tbe ( Diet prosecuting
witness, had expressed a willingness to
let Ise go to Omaha, and thus save the
tax-payers the expense of keeping bim
here without the assurance of convicting
him, whereas there is a certainty in
But the governor's requisition although
issued yesterday, and which Capt. Mos
tyn had been notified was on the same
train with him, did not arrive when the
Omaha officer did and its delay prevented
the latter getting his man.
After bis arrival Shi tiff Silvis took Ise
before Justice Hawes, where papers had
been sworn out by Clerk Bloom, of the
Rock Island house, and where with Wm.
McEniry, representing the state's attor
ney. Ise was arraigned. He waived pre
liminary examination and the 'squire held
him in bonds of f 2.500 to the May term
of the circuit court. In default of bail
the sheriff took him back to jail.
This procedure caused considerable
feeling between the sheriff : nd the
marshal, the latter holding that the
prisoner was in his custody and that
he had written the Omaha officer to come
in reply to inquiries as to whether he
could have the man- The sheriff on the
other hand maintains that the prisoner
should be held and tried for his offense
here before be is turned over to other
slates, and that after the state of Illinois
bat disposed of Ihe case, the state Of Ne
braska can present its claim.
The question is plainly one of author
iiy oyer the prisoner as between the sher
iff and the marshal. In either case the
governor's requisition would have come
in for respect bad it arrived before the
prisoner was bound over. Capt. Mos
tyn will remain in the city until this
evening. He said to a reporter: "I don t
think I have been treated right. The
governor's requisition arrived this after
noon at 1 JO aud was really in the city
before the man was hound over, and had
I it in my possession a few minutes be
fore, could have claimed the prisoner.
As it is. I will return to Omaha and con

Ise was tickled over the fact that he
did not have to go to Omaha at present.
as be doesn't lock forward with fond an
ticipation to his treatment there.

the appended letter which reveals more
of Ise's rascality:

AN ADVERTISEMENT should be a public statement of
a fact. A misleading advertisement never paid in the long run
and seldom in the short run. Customers are not fools in any
community. When told by a flaming advertisement that dollar
goods are to be sold for a quarter, they begin a mental calcula
tion, and will, ten chances to one, figure it out that the advertiser
lied twice as much as he really did. Mclntire Bros, propose
to advertise facts. They are now reoeiving their spring goods.
In Woolen Dress Goods the leading fabrics are Mohairs,
Serges and Henriettas, which we show in blacks and colors. Mo
hairs 30c per yard up to $1.10. You will be pleased with weight
and finish of three special numbers of Black Silk finished Hen
riettas at 83c, 89c and 98c per yard, 46 inch wide.
Wash Goods are seasonable and in good demand. Wise
women will not put off their purchases till the eleventh hour.
Ginghams in beautiful plaids at 10c and 12ic, fast colors.
Satines will be popular. There is a fashionable fondness
for the colorless tans, tor grey and black and the various tints of
purple, including violet, petunia, and lavender, all liberally toned
with white and darker shades. We show the largest assort
ment we have ever opeued at 10c. 12$c up to 25c a yard.
We don't ask you to select from samples (as some of our
neighbors request you to do in their advertisements) but have
the goods in stock now. Embroideries and White Goods are
very reasonable in prices this season.
