nest April 30. Both men are now in
training for the match and a lively in
terest is being taken by the local sport
ing fraternity. Burns' ability as a
wrestler is well known to those who have
watched his record, and something of
Con stock's knowledge and skill in the
sam ; direction was seen from the rain
ner a which he handled himself in his
recent bout with Carkeek. as well as
fromCarkeek's own statement that he was
an artist in his line. This together with
the 1 act that Carkeek has promised to train
Con. stock for the coming match will no

As was shown in The Argcs of yes
terday, under the provisions of the
United States statutes and the terms of
the act of the last congress, which made
an appropriation of $500,000 for begin
ning the work of constructing the Illinois
and Mississippi canal, it is necessary be
fore work can begin that the general as
sembly shall formally give the legislative
assert to the purchase by the United
Statis of certain lands required in the
work of construction and shall cede to
the United States jurisdiction over the
lands thus acquired and over the canal
when constructed. According to yester
day's Chicago News Governor Fifer will
transmit to the legislature a special mes
sage asking its passage by the general
assembly in order that the work of con
structing this great waterway may be
It is to be hoped such is to be the case.
Pres dent Jackson, of the Improvement
association, was visited by an Argcs rep
resentative this morning, and he stated
that there was no doubt whatever that
the state of Illinois must cede jurisdic
tion to the general government of the
canal route before the work could be
comnenced, and he was surprised that
this had not been attended to before
this. He said, however that he would
go t Chicago Tuesday to consult Capt.
Mar,, hall in the matter.
Hjn. J. H. Murphy, of Davenport,
was in town yesterday and be, too, was
surprised that the necessary formalities
between the state and the general gov
ernment bad not been attended to. He
will also go to Chicago Tuesday to see
wha. can be done to hasten the matter.
The Aroc9 suggests that it would not be
a ba 1 idea for both Messrs. Jackson and
Murphy to go to Springfield also, and
urge the proper legislation as
prociptly as possible.

The Union asserts ttm The Argus is
"sorely distressed at the idea of the
Milan street railway extending its track
on Eleventh street direcly north to
Fourth avenue and from there using the
Syndicate tracks to the centre of the
city." That is ab )ut as near as the
Union genera'i? comes to the correct
statement of facts. The Argus is not
distressed over the proposed change at
all, and it is no more opposed to the pro
posed extension to Eleventh street than
it has been on any improvements that the
syedicate his mide. Indeed TnE Argcs
is enjoying beyond its power of expresson
the novelty of seeing the Union on the
side of the railway company's efforts to
extend i!s rights, and is raking its brain
to understand what has brought about
such a wonderful change of faith on
the psrt of the morning contemporary
The Aiious does not wonder that'' the
people for three blocks on Eleventh
street should be "solid for the change.''
It does not olame them for being so;
neither doe it wonder at nor does it
blame the people for 13 blocks on Seven
teenth nn'l Seventh avenue that they
shouli he suiid thit their street railway
facilities b: preserved to them by the
council. Indeed there is very email
wonder lht the residents on Seventeenth
street and Seventh avenue who would loe
the only street crs within half a mile of
them fhould be as . much interested m
protecting and holding what they have as
those who now have advantages within a
block and a half on either side should be
in gaining further privileges. The q u es
tion is (imply one of the interests of a
large number of people against those of a
few. and, while The Aitfcus reaffirms
thit it would not be for denying the few
and is not opposed to the Eleventh street
extension, it does not think that the
many should be made to suffer to accom
modate the three blocks, the street car
people or anybody el9e. The council
can very easily solye the problem by
granting the Eleventh street rights with
the express condition that the Seventh
avenue and Seventeenth street lines re
Tdnight at the Theatre.
Tonight at Harper's theatre Duncan
Clark's female mics'rels will appear.
The Boston Herald says of the attraction:
The Windsor theatre was crowded yes
terday, and Duncan Clark's female min
strels made one of the greatest successes
ever scored in this house by a similar or
ganization. The nrst part was very en
joyable, and the jokes were refreshingly
new and created much hearty laughter.
The olio was well arranged, and the dif
ferent members of the organization pre
sented specialties which were well re
ceived. The voung ladies who make uo
the combination are hardsome and well
formed and dressed with good taste, and
the grouping, tableaux and marches are
especially worthy of commendation.
The dudes' parade and maypole quad
rille were notab e features of a very
pleasing bill .
The .Mayor' Appointment.
Mayor McConochie was asked by an
Argus reporter this morning if he had de
cided as vet upon anv of his appoint
ments. ,Xo" was his response, "I have
not fully determined, but there will not
be a great many changes."
From this it may be inferred that the
mayor in his preseDt frame of mind does
not contemplate making any changes ex
cept in the office of street commissioner,
and in this respect he could not fail to
remove the present incumbent and do his
duty. The indications are thercfore.that
the superintendent of waterworks, toll
gate keeper, marshal and the majority of
the police force will be retained as at

The Rockford Construction company
has reached the middle of the block be
tween Fifth and Sixth avenues coming
down Twentieth 6treet with the brick
pavement, and Inspector Lloyd stated to
day that . with fair weather Twentieth
street would be finished to First avenue in
two weeks. There is only a block and a
half south of Fourth avenue and the
block between First and Second to com
plete now. Then the company will turn
its attention to its five blocks' job on Sec
ond avenue west of Fourteenth. By May
1, or soon thereafter, Mr. Llcyd thinks,
the Rockford company will have finished
its work in Rock Island.
There has been much inoiry a to
when the contractors, Edwards & Walsh,
would becin their cootrsct on Fourth
avenue and Moline avenue. It is under
stood the contractors propose to finish
some contracts in Davenport before
beginning here. The council should not
permit any unnecessary delay ia Rock
Island and should order the work begun
at once, or the city will experience
another season of waste such as Kst sum
mer proved to be. There is no reason
why the Moline avenue job should not
be begun at once. Rck Island has
nothing to do with what the firm has to
do in Davenport.
