Vlee Pr student Carse Reports Other
matters of Importance.
At last night's regular monthly meeting
of the Rock Island Citizens' Improve
ment association President Bass occupied
the chair and there was the usual large
attendanca of representative citizens.
The ref ular order of business, reports
from the ittanding committees were called
and brought out some interesting infor
mal discu isions. From the committee on
free bridges Mr. Oliver Olson reported
that the cuestion had been thoroughly in
vestigated and it was deemed expedient
to attempt to cast the burden of the
bridges on the townships of South Rock
Island anl Black Ilawk; he believed that
these townships could not force the
bridges on the county, neither could the
townsbipti as a matter of law farce the
I county to take them. It was evident that
special legislation must be secured before
anything could lie done with the bridges.
Vice Piesident Henry Carse made a re
port of his recent trip to Washington and
the status of the Hennepin canal, public
building t.nd viaduct. He virtually out
lined whet he staled in his interview with
a represet tative of this paper on his re
turn, explaining with what assurances he
looked UTOn the public building pros
p3Ct8 he believed there was no doubt as
to the passage of the bill. He explained
in detail the work before the committee
in relation to the viaduct and the exceed
ingly enouraging outlook for the meas
ure when be left Washington, which had
been full' confirmed by the telegraphic
dispatches of the day. As to the canal.

Messrs. D. N. Richardson and M. L.
Marks, of Davenport, who went to Wash
ington in the interests of the Ilennepin
canal, have returned home. The Demo
erat says the gentlemen were gratified at
the excellent shape in which they found
the canal affairs. So thoroughly well had
the senate and house forces attended to
this matter that for days before the bill I at P. G. Young's.

came up for consideration before the sen
ate committee no fears were entertained
that any considerable blow would be
struck at the Ilennepin appropriation.
And the result was more favorable to
the extent of two votes, at least than
had been anticipated. That this bill
should have met with so slight an oppo
sition a single vote in the commit
tee on commerce reveals and em
phasized the already staled fact that the
friends of the Hennepin canal project in
Washington Lave slumbered not nor
slept. They have been on the alert
gathering in new recruits, advancing
their lines serving their country nobly.
Few stones, if any, have been left un
turned this session. Mr. Hayes' masterly
effort in its behalf on the floor of the
house on the 25th ult. is commended in
highest terms by Senators Allison, Cul-
lorn, Gorham and others.
As to the Hennepin it is troing to be
built. The work once well begun its pro
gress will be easier, even to the dy when
boats will pass through it from New Or
leans to St. Paul, and from lake ports
north and east and the far away Atlantic
From the following special to today's
Chicago Herald it looks as if the bill
might still need considerable watching:
The senate committee on commerce is
working very hard to get the river and
harbor appropriation bill ready for re
porting to the senate at as early a dtc ,s
possible. The committee has already

project both in the house and senate were
known to all who hitd watched the con
gressional record from day today. He
believed the canal now fully assured,
while the viaduct and public building. es
pecially tie former, were as certain of
success an could be desired.
Mr. Oliver Olsan made inquiry as to
the prospects of the union depot, now
that the viaduct was an assured fact, and
if the Rook Island road had nn.de any fur
ther mov .'s as to coming down town as it
should. The question was not answered,
thouge it led to a few exchanges of
views as to the necessity of s-itne action
very soor looking to the establishment
I of a central depot in the bran of the
I city, and the running of all passenger
trains co ning into the city toil.

were beard in favor of providing in the
bill for the purchase of the Por
tage Lake canal across Keewenaw
Point in Lake Superior. The
chances are that this item also
will be inserted. Provision was made
for the purchase of this canal in the bill
four years ago, which President Cleve
land vetoed. The price fixed by the
owner is $350,1X10, and the maximum
amount required to make it ready for
navigation with a deep water channel,
will be vety large. The committee has

Coroner H.iwes held an inquest la'e
yesterday afternoon on the body of litte
Robert Smith, the eleven year old son of
James Smith, whose sad drowning in
Sylvan water was chronicled in last
night's A Rous. A jury was sworn com

man; 11. O. Harris, J. C. Miller, George
E Rnrth. George R. Browner and James
McOormick. The evidence submitted
substantiated the facts as given in the
Alicus of yesterday. Little P.e nnie Hawk
the companion of the drowned boy, was
the only witness to the calamity. He
met Robbie Smith near the Rock Island
round house about 1:30 in the afternoon
wbo asked him to go in swimming, but
be refused and Robbie went in alone. In
attempting to go from one skiff to an

The legislative nominations made by
the republican party the other day have
constituted the topic of conversation
among all classes of people ever since.
In fact, the ticket has created a genuine
sensation, and the party which has pers
milted the ambitions of two men one
who never will be qualified, and the
other not hardly beyond the years of dis
cretion to guide its policy and warp ita
judgment, has subjected itself not only
to ridicule but absolute scorn among the
thinking and capable representatives of
the party. Said one of these men this
"Why, think of itl nere is a commun
ity growing and progressing as it never
has before and there are likely to come up
matters of much concern to this commun
ity in the state government, and yet a
party which under most circumstances
has but to nominate a legislative ticket
to elect, takes advantage of its political
good fortune in this district and puts up
men who are not only incapable of look
ing after the interests of the locality, but
have no ambition beyond that of per
sonal political advancement. I am a re
publican and interests of the republican
parly are my interests, but when a party
abuses itself as it has with regard to these
two legislative candidates it insults the
intelligent men of the party on the one
hand and the older members on the other.
It is indeed a happy fact that Rock Isl
and county will be enabled through the
good judgment of the democratic party
and lhe minority svstem of representa
