The Canal After Many Years an
HISTORY OF THE GREAT PROJECT.

Cent for Kail road Freights Where
no Competition Kximed.
As hits already been announced, the
river and harbor bill has been signed by
the president and is now an assured fact.
This measure grants $500,000 towards
the construction of the Hennepin canal
a project which has been under consider
ation for many years and with which the
people are thoroughly conversant. The
matter has been discussed in all its bear
ings, in congress and out of it, and that
the people here should feel a peculiar
pride and satisfaction goe9 without say
This waterway when constructed will
be of incalculable benefit not only to the
people in this section of the west, but to
the nation at large. Trie matter of
freight has always been one of the great-

en moment to merchants and farmers and
all others who handle or consume the
earth's products. Where railroads have
competition b? water their freight charges
are about Im'f of what they would be
when such compe'.ition does not exist.
According to carefully prepared fi'Mires
it is shown that in 1880 the New York
Central railroad received .0088 per ton
per mile; the Philadelphia & Erie, .0050;
the Lake Shore, .0075; the Michigan Cen
tral. .00842; and the Pittsburg, Ft.
Wayne & Chicago, 0076. All these roads
have water competition, sometimes rlise
and direct, in other cases not so direct, but
still a competitor. The differenc: will he
seen when it Is made known that in the
same year referred to the C, B. & Q
charged .0120 a ton per mile; in the year
1879 the Cuicauo & N'lnhwpatx r-.
reived.. 010C3; the Milwaukee and St.
Paul, 0176; the Rock Island, 0121. The
Erie canal in that vear realized .0049.
Those who are in a position to know
and who have given close attention to the
matter, have estimated that the states of
Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Minnesota
pay for freight on grain alone the large
sum of $ :j,482.687 yearly. The figures
for the state of Illinois are not at
present at hand, but they will bear
the same ratio. And all because
water communication was not accessible.
The estimate made is upon grain alone.it
must be remembered, "and to this must be
added every other material and product
which require transportation. These
vast sums are a yearly drain upon the
people of all classes who are shippers
and consumers, and will be saved to
them by the construction of the Henne
pin canal. Besides, this large appropria
tion will be spent in this section by the
people to whom it is paid, thus adding
to the benefit of the community during
the time the work is in progress.
To all who in anyway aided in brincinr
this enterprise up to its present state, the
thanks of the people are due. Those who
were in congress have had their actions
toward it carefully watched and heartily
applauded. Those who labored on the
outside in other channels will receive
HISTOKY OK THE OKEAT PIOTJECT.
The first official act leading to the con'
summation of this great watcrwav pro
ject was the ceding to the general gov
ernment by the Ilhnoisgeneral assembly
the action being sanctioned by the popu
lar vote of the people the Illinois and
Michigan canal, extending from Chicago
to Hennepin. This was done with the
understanding that the general govern
ment will accept the grant and complete
the canal (for which the surveys have
been made,) to a point on the river at or
near Rock Island. The length of the un
built link is only sixty-five miles. This
Is what is meant by the Hennepin canal,
and by the route decided upon the cost
is estimated at $0,672,800. By an act
of congress, passed August 12, 1882, an
appropriaiion of 30,000 was made for
surveys of three practical routes for the
canal between Hennepin and the Missis
sippi river. The work was completed by
Major W. II. II. Benyaurd.and estimates
furnished. As is stated the . ost ot
construction of the Rock Island route
the most desirable including feeders and
the right of way, will be $0,672,800.
This amount Covers the estimated cost of
the canal and feeder from Itock river to
the summit of the canal each eighty feet
in width at the water line and seven feet
deep-including locks 170 feet in length
and thirty feet in width, with a capacity
for vessels of at least 280 tons burden.
The practicability of the canal construc
tion has been thoroughly investigated by
the best of engineering talent. At the
instance of citizens of Illinois and Iowa,
Col. J. O. Hudnutt, a civil engineer of
eminence, who is quoted in the "Report
of the Helect Committee on Transportas
tion Routes to the Seaboard," presented
to the senate of the United Slates
on April 21. 1874, made the
first survey of the Hennepin canal
route. In his report of that survey, ren
dered with estimates in 1866, Colonel
Hudnutt so unequivocally endorsed the
project as one of easy accomplishment,
that he asserted that "this would be the
cheapest canal constructed in the United
jto ROCK ISLAND AKQUB, SATUHPAY. SEPTEMBER 20. 1890
States. " His estimate?, however, were
for a canal of only 60 feet In width and
6 feet deep, with locks of 150 by 21 feet,
to cost f 4,500,000. The first survey by
the United States was that of Gorbam P.
Low, In 1870. It was made for a "ship
canal," and placed his cost at $12,479,
693. But a "ship canal" La? never been
desired by the intelligent advocates of the
Hennepin canal, since a canal for com
mercial purposes is alone what is re
quired. In 1874 the United States engi
neers made estimates for a commercial
canal based on the survey of Mr. Low,
which placed the cost at $5,541,000. It
was objected in the senate of the Forty-
appropriations: io. 1871, $7,889; la 1875.
$10,000; in 1883, 180.000; In 1836. 25,
000; making a to'.ai of $63 889. The
canal k has been properly termed "the
grandest national work ever undertaken
in the interest of heap transportation."
The seven northwestern states whose
commerce it will cheapen produced, in
1879 (according to the United States
cencus), in round numbers, 1,800.000,000
bushels, or 70.000,000 tons, of grain
alone. The saving of two ceats a bushel
on one half this amount would net $13.
000,000 in one year, or enough to build
two such canals.

seventh congress, however, that the Low
survey did not actually locate the route,
and that tt.e estimates made diil not in

Therefore that congress appropriiled
$30,000 for a new survey and complete
estimates, boih as to the Hennepin canal
and the enlargement of the Illinois ami
Michigan canal. The report of Major
Benvaurd is the result, as heretofore stat
ed. The public is familiar with the later
national legislation pertaining to the
measure. Suffice is it to say that, the
river and harbor bill signed by tlie presi
dent yesteiday providing for $500,1(10
to commence actual work at Rock Inland
The execution of the plans now agreed
upon, will supply the only missing link
in a waterway route, from the eastern
seaboard to Rork Island. The canal is
to have a capacity for ves-els of at least
2S0 tons burthen. The government has

j plans for this enterprise, the following

canal and who have accomplished the
most for its success are Congressman Hen

Murphy, of Davenport, while other men
in public and private life both at Wash
ington and in this Immediate community
have labored with tioswerving perse
verance and faith for the glorious results
now attained. As far as our own people
are concerned, it is no man's individual
victory. The success of the measure is
due to the united and the individual
efforts of more cill'ni than could be
named in several paragraphs. The suc
cess of the canal is the succets of a na

reason for self gratification and self satis

they have won the fight. Their one gen

AX UNFAIR CONCLUSION.
Miarrmentx .limit ICecarlHii; the
MwrilrM Whleh arc not Warranted
by the Foctn.
When Mr. Andrew Anderson, of
Moline, employed some one to write a
letter for him to the Union, the under
standing should have been that the truth
must be fairly stated and no misstate
ments or coloring of facts permitted.
The complaint made, which is signed by
Mr. Anderson. is to the effect that because
the late Mr. P. L. Cable donated money
to the Swedish college, tba, therefore,
Mr. Ben T. Cable would consider the
Swedes ungrateful should they not sup
port him for congress. There is no foun
dation for this conclusion. Mr. Cable is
not endeavoring to coersce any man or
class of men to yote for him by any
means which are not in accordance with
the strictest propriety. He is not en
deavoring to ctmnge the politics of any
nationality. He txpects the Swedish
population will be manly enough and
sensible enough to vote for their best in
terests. Those of them who vote for
him to them will be grateful; those
who do not will still have his respect. The
Swedes, as all others, wiil be left to their
own good judgment.
But is Mr. Anderson the spokesman
for the Swedish people ot Moline? Have
they entrusted their political interests to
his care and keeping? It does not seem
that Mr. Anderson is the idol of that na
tionality. A year ago he ran for super
visor on a citizens' ticket, in Moline. anil
was defeated. This spring he ran for al
derman on the republican ticket, in a re
publican ward, and was beaten again. By
this it would seem thsl he was not the
standard bearer of the Swedish republi
cans, and, consequently, pot in a position
to speak for them as a hotly. The opin
ion is that the Swedes will do their own

There is more catarrh it this section of
the country than all other diseases put to

supposed to be incurable. For a creat
many yeara the doctors pronounced it a
local disease, and prescri mmI local reme
dies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore re
quires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.

constitutional cure on the market. It is
