THE RIVER AM) HARBOR BILL.
The lower Branch r cnngreMi Arts
on t he Canal tlause This Heroine
Vexterday's Meeting la Thin Illy
an. Mr. Mnrphy's Views.
It '?as godd news indeed tbat the tele
graph brought from Washington to the
Argi s this afternoon in the way of a
speciil message from Vice President
Henry Carse, of the Rock Island Citizens'
Improvement association, and which read:
Washington, D. C, May 24 Henne
pin slays in the river and harbor bill by a
vote of 122 for. to 50 against, in the
bouse this morning. Henry Cakse.
Tho fate of the canal, therefore, de
pend on the vote on the. river and har-
bor bill, Qen. Henderson having carried
his point on the question of jurisdiction.
If the river and harbor bill passes at the
present session of congress, the canal
sectir n w ill. and if the bill should not pass
the Hennepin hap received tbat recognition
that Las never been liefore accorded it.
and which places it where it will tie a
part of the bill when it does pass.
A Meeting was held at the rooms of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
wtiicL was attended by citizens of Unck
Island, Davenport and Milan, who have
alwajs been identified with the Hennepin
canal project and anything pertaining to
its itlerests. Maj. II. C. Connelly, of
this city, presided, and Mr. W. B. Wylie,
of Davenport, acted as secretary. " The
main object of the meeting was to hear a
repori from Hon. J. II. Murphy, of Dav
enport, of his recent visit to Washington
in thf interests of the canal. Mr. Mur
phy detailed at length the evident pros
pects of the canal, which he believed to
be very good. If the river and harbor
bill pissed at all, he believed the Henne
pin rlati.se would pus with it undis
turbed. To Congressman Henderson
he siiid, was due more credit than
any other man for the success thus far
achieved by this ereat measure. Mr.
Murphy did not belieye hope should be
abandoned even should the canal bill fail
at the preseDt session, either through the
declaied hostility of the present speaker
of tbi house to it. or through the exercise
of influence against it higher up than the
house of representatives. He ouoted
from bis speech before Hie river and har
bor coin mil tee of the house of represen
tatives on April 7 last, in the interests ot
the Hennepin raoal in which he showed
the ct dorsement the canal bad received
in vatious ways, what the nations of
Euroie bad done for commerce in build
ing ct.nals, the importance of the Henne
pin ci nal for dtfonsivc purposes in lime
f war, its importance in the interest of
agriet.lture, commerce, etc. Mr. Murphy
believed there was a friendly disposition
toward the canal in the lower branch of
congress now, but even should it be de
feated through the opposition of the
speaker and thus lost to this par
ticular session, it would come up
at the opening of the next gesi
sion in Deoemlier. for the same
committee would again jut it back
where it now is, and furthermore, if it
should come up in the committee on ron-
ferente it would he well treated, for it
had the large mijority of the members of
that committee on its side. Mr. Mur
phy believed, however, that at least
three-fourths of the members of the house
were .n favor of the Hennepin canal, and
that only deliberate obstruction to the
entire river and harbor bill could defeat
the Hennepin canal now. He did not
believe any more work could be done of
a nature essential to the canal's advan
tage at present.
At the close of Mr. Murphy's remarks
a number of questions were asked him as
to the various' elements of a similar na
ture that may combine either for or
against the canal, and before the meeting
adjourned a vote of thanks was, upon
motif n, extended Mr. Murphy for his la
bors ut Washington.

THE CITY'S PROGRESS,

Where They Are located.
The glowing prospects that surround
Rock Island on every side are no more
gratifying to any one than to the A Rous,
whose series of articles three years ago on
the natural worth of Rock Island, which
if properly appreciated would bring
about a new era in the city's history,
were first ridiculed by some of the oldest
citizens here, afterward viewed more so
berly as the Argus insisted and finally
accepted as worthy of consideration after
all. Now, despite all opposition and
lack of confidence Rock Island is becom
ing just what it was predicted it would.
It is on the wave of a progressive spirit
tbat will land it among the cities of im
portance in the west if its citizens put
persistence in the determination that has
taken posession of them.
The things that have happened within
the past year as indicative of the city's
advancement are but the preliminaries to
what will occur this year unless present
prospects'arc sadly deceptive. That our
street railway facilities are to be vastly
improved as indicated by the Akous' arti
cle of Wednesday with reference to the
utilizing of the water power at Milaa by
the Holmes syndicate for transmitting
electricity; that we are to have a number
of very valuable industries that are
scarcely dreamed of now, and that the
street improvements are to be extended
still further than at present contracted
for, are all reasonably certain, and a year
from now Rock Island with its beautiful
streets and parks and unexcelled means
of transit, will he one ot the model cities
of the west.
Among other improvements that the
public will highly appreciate is the new
arrangement of street crossings. The
contracting firm of McCarthy & Hull has
just finished the distributing of the flag
stone from the court house square walk.
and placed substantial crossings at
the following intersections: Eighth
street and Fourth avenue; Eleventh street
and Fifth avenue; Fourteenth street and
Fourth avenue; Fourteenth street and
Seven h avenue; Feventeenth street and
Seventh avenue; Eighteenth street and
Seventh avenue; Nineteenth street and
Seventh avenue; Twenty-first street and

"I have received orders fronv the major

"But they may fight in the county, but
outside the city limits? "
"In that case," said the marshal, "the
sheriff will be called upon. In any event
the fight will not occur in this immediate
vicinity, or it will be interrupted."
What the principals will do now, is
hard to foretell, and it is believed the
fight will be a more guarded secret than
ever. The marshal also stated tbat Mo

made in this case.
