last night on his way to visit among his
people in Wisconsin. He is a tall, manly
specimen of the copper-colored race, and
although he is 50 years of age this is the
first time he was ever east of the Missou

except the paint, and to an Argcs repor

the train while crossing the Rock Island

admiration of the Great Father of Waters,

new interest and he turned the interview

the reporter with questions, setming to
wish to verify what had come down to
him by tradition, concerning the famous
chieftain of bis race, fie also expressed
a desire to remain here a few days and

intelligently, "and although we were not

Indians have been treated fairly by the

trouble with the Indians? '
"No, not if the bad Indians are separ

make the most trouble between the good
Indians and the government."
But "Lo" did not seem disposed to
talk further on the Indian troubles. He
was too much absorbed in studying the
surrounding country, and when leaving
Rock Island he bade the reporter a
friendly good-bye, aDd said he would

Argus representative this morning "with
reference to the formal notification of the
contractors, Edwards & Walsh, as to ibe
council's order that the work of paving
Fourth and Moline avenues be commenced
immediately. "I have not served a writ

said, "but I have notified them verbslly,
and the city clerk has served a written
notice. In conversation with Mr. Ed
wards, however. I was a.sured that work
would begin on Fourth avenue at Twen
tieth street in two weeks' time. The
contractors have two more blocks to com
plete in DiV;nport and will tnen be ready
to enter upon tbeir Rock Islind contract,
and when tbey do they will rush it."
The mayor said he had no doubt whaw
ever that the contractors would be ready
to tackle the woikhere at the timestateil,
and that there would be no difficulty ex
perienced in getting abundance of Pur
rington brick, such as is specified in
the contract with Edwards & Walsh . The
public will be glad to learn that the con
tractors proposed entering upon their
work here so soon and may expect rapid
progress when they get started. El
wards & Walsh, being a home firm, will
naturally be x peeled to take unusual
pride in what they do. and the contracts
which have been taken by them in Dav

performed but the work has been excetd

Today's Chicago Inter-Oiean has the
f illowirg relative to the actual com

There is a strong likelihood that no
work will be dnne on the Hennepin canal
this season. Nothing can be done until
tte government has a clear title to the
land for its lo jte, and condemnation pro
ceedings must be instituted for a number
of tracts near Rock Island. These suits,
in the ordinary course of events, can not
be heard before the United States district
court until October. Yesterday Cant.
Marshall, of the engineer corps, and Dis
trict Attorney Milcbrist had a conference
on the subject. It was decided to get a
special term of the district court, if pos
sible, in July to try the condemnation
I; is possib'e that Capt. Marshall will
ask the war department for permission to
advertise for bids, contingent upon the
termination of the condemnation suits
in time for work this fall. If this is done
operations can be commenced imme
diately upon the title becoming vested in
the United States. Otherwise the time
required for advertising for aDd acting on
the bids will delav the work six weeks or
