IS FIFER TO BLAME?:
Tie Opinion That he is Delaying
v Canal Work.
The Mtartlins Aanonireneit That
ihe UtTttnor't Dilatory Beth'
ods are Jeopardizing Henne
pin. 1 1 Governor Fifer hostile to the Henne
pin csrjau is ne, ror some reason, ner-
haps, better known to himself, dilatory
in t ie matter as far as his duty in the
pre niees is concerned, and is thetefore
plat ing; the project in danger If not
why is he pursuing dilatory methods that
threaten the project at the last moment?
The Chicago Herald of yesterday repre
sent s this to be the case. Read :
Unless the state nf Tllinnia twatira hr.
self the $500,000 appropriated by the late
congress tor me uennepin canal may oe
lost and the long years of labor in behalf
of the project come to naught. Before
wori can begin on the cinal the state
must cede jurisdiction and consent to the
purchase of land. "I wrote to the gov
ernor sometime ago, urging the required
action by the legislature." Captain W. L.
Marshall, the United States engineer said
yest-irday, "but have not received even
an ackowledgmect of the receipt of
my letter. The governor has apparently
paid no attention to the matter. I Ehall
writ; him asaiD. and. if no renlv U then
received and nothing is done, the presW
aeni win ass tnat tne state or Illinois
grant jurisdiction. This is as the statutes
provioe." If the half million is not ex
pended this year it will te possible for
congress to pull back the appropriation.
If the work goes on this season the ap
propriation will mke the Rock River
navif.a;le for 27 miles m a medium stage
of water and 13 miles in extreme low
water. In addition to the Hennepin canal
construction the Coiled States engineer
will I e kept tmy this season. As soon
as the water goes . down, work on the
Kampsville lack and dam. on the Illinois
rivor 30 miles from its mouth, will be
commenced and pushed nifiht and day
with three shifts of men until rnmnleted"
The S200.00J appropriated will nearly.
n not quite, complete the improvement.
Then the if 250,000 for dredging which
congress is expected to appropriate next
winter will give excellent nnvigation with
seven feet of water from the Mississippi
to La Salle. This is a fnnt onH a half
more -water than there is in the Mississip
pi in 3ry weather. From an
engineering standpoint the Hennenin
canal construction is nrnhablv the most.
impor ant of anv now beins rrroserntpd
by the government.
This is a matter which should enlist the
immec iate efforts of our local cnal work,
era, to the end that a thorough investiga
tion nay be made, and the governor's
attent.on called to any danger in which
delay on his part may involve the Henne
pin, for whether intentiond or not, ac-
cordin?to the view expressed by the
Herald he appears to have it in his power
now to hasten or delay perhaps for a
great vhile the work of construction.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean of yesterday
has a similar representation of the situa
tion, b it it goes further and says:
The boycott upon L. L. Wheeler. Cap
tain M.rsha!l's assistant at Rock Island,
continues in full force. Mr. Wheeler is
unable to find a house, and may be com
pelled to resign for lack of a place to
The word "boycott" is misused in this
connection. The people of Rock Island
would l e only too happy to have Col.
Wheeler reside among them, but he is no
doubt f lrnishing an illustration of what
TriE Ahovs has so frequently commented
upon the scarcity of houses in Rock Isl
and, and talk about "boycott" is non
sence. The city is losing residents every
day becnu.se it cannot 'urnish houses. In
look a word.it is overcrowded, but the out
is beginning to appeir better, although
the number of houses in sight does no:
begin to give any promise ot meeting the
demand. Col. Wheeler, however, has
made arrangements at Milan for his resi
dence for two years at least.
Col. Wheeler stated this morning that
his men were busy staking out the final
line of tae approved route to the mouth
of Rock river, but said the actual opera
tions woald, of course, not be entered

jurisdiction to the government, the neces
sity of t tch a step, he said, being too'.well
