GENUINE WILTON RU
All That Has Come of Gest's Visit
He Fbl to Se the Nrcterary of War
aa! i.iirTucteil to Ktve Ills
(f In Writinje t ouilns
Hack .4b in.
The Chicago Inter Ocean of yesterday
contained the following further details of
Congressman Gest's recent mission to
Washington for the purpose of hindering
tte Hennepin canal operationc,which have
already advanced further than at any
time before in the history of the great
Congressman Gest, of the R. ck Island
district, called at the war department to
dy in accordance with an appointment
and was prepared to address the secre
tary of war in the matter of the location
of the Hennepin canal and of the change
of route which he claimed had been made
without authority by Captain Marshall,
the engineer effleer in charge. But the
secretary of war had been called away
from the city and whs about to leave.
Consequently Mr. Gest was referred to
Afbiitant Secretary Grant, who, for that
matter, under the present organization of
the wtir department, has charge of all
matters relating to river and hartors, and
engineer work of that class. To General
Gr-nt Mr. Gest made the argument which
has already been wlined in these dis
patches. General Grant heard the argu
ment and requested Mr. Geet to reduce it
to wruicg atid to send it tJ the depart
ment. Mr. Gest left for home tonight,
and wi 1 prepare his argument and for
ward it here in due time.
The war department much prefers to
have written arguments This is csdcc
ially true of anything which relates to
rivers and harbors. The advantage of
this to the department is that the engi
neer officers, wh se judgment is often
called in question, are sometimes con
fronted wit:i the formal argument against
them and requested to answer. It is not
knon whetner ttat will be the case in
this instance. General Grant did not in
dicate whether or not the claim of Con
gressman Gest that Capuia Marshall has
usurped authority in selecting; a new
route instead of the one which Mr. Gest
claims was prescribed by the act cf 1SS0
would or would not be accepted by the
department. An immediate decision is
of course not to be expected. .
TLe pr.ict raised by Mr. Gest that the
law of ls;lii definitely fixed the mute is a
new one. It is a claim, far that matter,
w&ich Mr. G;st himself did cot make in
the hrruuiect which he tiled a month ago
wita trie department on this same sutject.
This new construction of the act of 180
is the ret:it of a more careful study cf
that ict since Mr. Goat's brief was fi.ed.
The ie'erpretatian which Mr. Gest
would ive to the law af is eviiect
ly not that which has been accepted by
the war riep rtmest . Of course if the
construction ly Mr Gest of the
set of 1 ' is correct, Csptain Marshal!
his no rijiit to make a Sew survey acd
h is no discretion except to .proceed with
trie construction of the canal under tae
appropriation of the act o' 1S91 on the
route fixed by the act of
So it seens tt:.t after ail Gest hns not
sc;oaip'.Ul.fd anything beyo.v! the p
sible hinderance of the operations on the
canal, but it is to be hoped te will not
saccetd in givit.5 the sir'il n-.tio pro
ject a ni'jre seria s-t bacfe. The abovt
statement disc'.o.-es the f ct, however,
that the ex-cortressm&c cannot be held
in the highest regard by the head of the
war department, who after havicg nude
a special ecgaitiiiieat wi h bin t.i go to
Wa-Litg'oa. d d cot regard either hiai
or his tnis-i u of su3cieut importance to
remain in Waah:ngton to tee him. Or
perchance the secretary of war knows the
situation quite ts we'd as TnEAi;t's
does, and real z-s that purely seifish in
terest, the seif-same interests which c )C
tro!U d Mr Gest during his term iu con
gress and CJsap'.'.ed kirn to Sacri
fice his duty to the people, is
again directing his movements. The
Ahgcs hasoniy to repeat its heretofore
madi statement, that while it would have
preferred the most northerly of the two
routes to the mouth of Rock river, it be
lieves the engineers knew what they were
about when t ey located this part of the
canal, tha they have made a pre at sav
ing tcr the giverDmest in so d :cg and
that to chsDk'e it now would jerpirdize
the entire measure. Lei well euouch
a'oneand let the work of cots:ruction eo
on. The people of RjcK IsUai are not
so na-row-miuded as Mr. Ges'. wou d
have tbeui appear They want the canal,
not what they can make out of the gov
eminent pers 'nal y or individually, but
as a coxtijercial waterwav, distributing
its t.enefi's to the people in common of
the tntire northwest.

A MISSISSIPPI MEJIOKY.
An Important Anniversary la
History oft tie Ureat River.
The Burlington Hawkeye of the 17 h
I is, had the following interesting hist .r
Two hundred and eighteen years ago
today the eyts of white men firjt beheld
the waters of the upper Mississippi river,
and a few days later gaz.d upon the
site of the future Borlington. Oa the
l?th day of June, 16T3, the missionary
Marquette acd bis companion, Joliel,
pushed their canoes out upon the noble
stream if which they had heard so much
from the Ind ans, and which they had set
out to find. They began their iourney
at Mackinaw on the lT.h of May, and
followed the northern and western shores
of Lake Michigan as far as Green Biy.
Thence they proceeded up the Fox river
and Lake Winnebago to a large Indian
village. Here cuides were procured
and the journey was coatinued
down the Fox river as far as the portaue
to the Wisconsin. The canoes and baa
gage were carried to the new stream, but
the Indians refused to go any farther.
They said that busje demons had their
habitations in the rivej ani destroyed all
who came within their reach. Fierce
tribes of eavxges, thr-y said, also lived oa
the banks who would not allow any
travelers to pass unharaaed. Marquette
politely thank-.d the gui les for their in
formation, but declared that he would go
with .loliet. Ia their canoes the two in
trepid explorers glided down the beauti
ful Wisconsin. Ther journey was full
of adventure and interest, but they met
with no serious mishap, acd it was
with feelings of joy and exultation that on
the day already named they paddled out
from the Wisconsin upon the rolling
waters of the ndshty Mississippi. They
drifted rapidly down the stream with the
current and were enchanted with the
beautiful scenery on both banks For
dayi they passed a succession of bold
hetdlands, the rocky summits of which
had beea shaped by wind at.d weather
into the most fantastic forms. They saw
no Indians for some time, but came across
immense terds of buffalo. It was not
till they reached the mouth of the Arkans
sas river that they thought of turning
back. By that time they were satisfied
that the river's outlet was on the Atlantic
side of the continent. They then re
turned home by way of the Illinois river
and Lake Michigan.
A Keal Baitam ii Kemp'f Haliam
The dictionery says, "a balsam is a
thick, pure, aromatic substance flowing
from trees." Kemp's Balsam for the
throat and lungs is the only cough medi
cine that is a real balsam. Majy thin,
watery cough remedies are called balsam's
bnt such are not. Look through a bottle
of Kemp's Balsam and notice what a pure,
thick preparation it is. If you coush
