At the meeting last evening of the Y.
M. C. A., to consider plans for ths build
ing canvass, a large number were enlisted
in active work. It was felt as a first ne
cessity that the people of Rock Island
should have as clear an idea as possible
regarding tbe building when completed,
and it was decided to hold a reception
for young men at the building on June
25, for wnicb arrangements were per
fected to make it a thorough success,
committees being appointed to have
charge of the various parts of the work.
The meeting was held in a room in an
unfurnished part of the building.
Messrs. W. E. Hiqman and W. P.
Mauler, of Sioux City, were in the city
yesterday to inspect the building, they
both being members of the building com
mittee of the association in that city.
The srentlemen were well pleased with
the building, their visit here being
wholly to inspect it with a view to adopt
ing plans for a similar one in Sioux City.

CHANGE OF CANAL ROUTE.
Ex-Conci-'etinaa at Work in
Wthinj(ton-Wha: be Ke. k,
The Chicago Inter-Ocean's Washington
correspondent sends a dispatch to his
paper today in which he says ex-Con-gressman
Gest is there in accordance with
a special appointment with the secretary
of war in the matter of the location of the
Hennepin canal. The dispatch con
tinues: Mr. Ge9t will gee Secretary Proctor
tomorrow, when he will present the case
to him with tue new information that has
been discovered since he. Mr. Gest, filed
his brief here a month ago. The case as
Mr. Gest will present jt to the secretary
of war is this; For years the cause of
the Hennepin canal was injured by the
conflicting claims as to the routes. There
were four different routes, and the advo
cates of the respective routi s were very
earnest in their cUim. Congress, h w
ever, in 1889 set led the question of route
by adopting wbnt is known as the Rock
Island route. T is route was adont.-ii h
c-ourcss atter me reports of the en
gineers as to ail of the routes suggested
had been carefully considered. Tte act
left no discretion to the secretary of war
or to the engineer officers to change the
location from the place about four miles
from Rock Wand where the Rock Kiver
empties into the Mississippi. Tuat act
located the cuial ,
The act of 1893 made the appropria
tion for the beginning of the construc
tion of the canal on tne route which tbe
previous act had fixed. The act of 1S90
did not change the route and did not au
thorize anyone to change it. The engi
neer cfliceis were instructed to com
mence work in accordance with mat act.
Instead of that Capt. Marshall, in charge
of the district, without authority of liw,
proceeded to make a survey of another
route and has made a report to the secre
tary of war that the work shou'.d besin
on the route selected by hirnseif outside
of any authority of law and in l. dunce to
the act of congress. He has made a re
port to the secretary of war to justify
himself in this usurpation of authoiity by
making a scries of statements and char
ges which cannot be sustained, and
which, if they could be sustained, are a
matter for the law making power, and
not for a subordinate officer of an exec
utiye department acting under a Epecine
The statements mfide by Captain Mr
snail to which Congressman GiS' tnkes
exceptions are that he dermed it expe
dient to change tbe route, because, as he
asserts, there is a combination to mulct
'he government as to right of way, ani
that the titles are clouded. To tms Mr.
Gest replies that Captain Marshall dots
not sustain his charge, and tht he hs
no right to assume that he is wiser than
congress or that the law making power
is vested in himself.
The congress has prepared a way by
which the general government can secure
the title, and the courts wiil see to it tht
the government is not defrauded and
that the titles are good. In other words.
Mr. Gest will insist to the secretary of
war that this encineer officer has ex
ceeded his duty in assuming the functions
both cf congress and the courts, and in
presuming both to make a new law and
assume the functions of the courts. More
over, Mr. Gest denies that facts are as
stated to be by Captain Marshall in this
report. He insists that there is no com
bination to mulct the government, and
that the titles are not clouded.
While there is a general tendency to
believe the nearer route would h ye lee l
preferable to Rock Island, still The Ait
gus believt s the engineers adopted what
they believed to be the most practica'
route, regardless of the property interests
and with an aim single to the protection
of the government. If Mr. Gest bad
been as enthusiastic in his work for the
canal as he is earnest in his desire to
have the adopted route changed, he
would have shown a more commenriable
spirit. It is indeed exceedingly peculiar
that he should be so deep'y inter
ested iu the matter uow. The
Argcs is for the canal, no matter what
tha route, though, of course, it wouid
favor that most advantageous to Rock
Island. Rather than jeopardize tbe en
tire measure, however, as there is daogtr
of doing ia the mere gratification of
self . interests. The Argus would pre
fered to see the route left undisturbed,
and the actual work of construction go
forward without delay. The canal wss
built not for a few individuals whose
property might be benefited, nor for a
single community, but for tbe advance
ment of the commerce of the entire north
west, as the people of Rock Island
have always held.
