The Argtjs ha8 held that there were sell
fish ,ters back tf Mr. Geefs m,8gion.
That while the nonhern route along Rock
nver micht be the more preferable f Jr
Rock l8land,yet tht people of Rock Ieland
s a whole who have been so long ideas
titled with the advocacy of tbe canal, were
not disposed to interpose objection to the
nvst feasible, and most economical
route. That the aim of the people of
Rock Macd was not the mere gratifica
tion of selfish interests, but that the pro
ject was sought in behalf of ihs internal
commerce of the northwest and that the
diffeience of a few rods in the route
to the mouth of the canal
was of very little consequence as com
pared with the success of the measure as
a whole. Therefore, it is that Thk
Argus says let the canal be constructed as
cbcided upon, and rather than suffer the
delay occasioned by petty antagonism,
let the work go forward.
As has been stated the telief is current
that disappointed, selfish interests are at
the bottom cf the oppcsiiion to the es
tablished route, and tbe south route was
really the cheapest and best. That such
a theory is correct is fully 9hown by ofli
cial figures which show the cost of the
north route would have been 5498,574,
whereas the south route will cost th
government $411,559, a difference of
$37,045, which is quite a saving even to
this rich government of ours. It is also
learned that after the wcrk of surveying
commenced, representatives of certain
interests demanded $22,500 fnr the
right of way through the canal. The
engineers' estimate of the entire right of
way throuch that section, ba9ed on the
statements of such of the property owners
as would name any price was 835,926, but
when tbe formal agreement came to be
sicctd, four owners demanded a total of
$75,419, or more than one seventh of the
tot-il appropriation, whiie the owners of
water power and canals alone Sears'
canal failed to sign any agreement at all.
The owners of vandruff's island, accord
ing to official figures, demanded $50,000
for 14. S3 acres; the claimants to the
Sears canal, 522,500. The engineers also
assort, so it is reported, that neither route
would have disturbed the water power,
and thnt tbe adoption of the southern
leaves it in the best possible condition
for iff velopment by the owners.
ew Patrol Wagon.
Ti.e police committee of the city conn
cil. Aid. Better, Evans und Thiesen, met
last niebt and showed that they don't
propose to let the fire and lieht commit
tee have tbe credit of being the
only progressive and public spirited
committee in the new council, by
ins;ructing Chief of Police Miller to
order a new patrol wagon. Mr.
Mi'.ler bad received reasonable figures
from Toung & Son, of Davenport, to
reconstruct the wagon originally bought
by the Eoliy hose company and transform
it into a wagon- such as were
built for Davenport and Moline,
and tbe chief was instructed to make the
contrart with Mr. Young. The wagon is
to be completed in two weeks, and will
be first class in all respects, being equipped
with side leather cushion seats, for ordi
nary police work, and a cot and surgical
appliances by which it can be used as an
ambulance in case of accident or injury.
Chief Miller intends selline the present
horse, which is too large for active ser
vice, and setting two small horses for the
new patrol wagon and going in style.
The rig will be necessary when the alarm
system is introduced, and they might as
well have it at once.
There was another outbreak in "Battle
Row" on Twenty-6econd street this morn
ing, in which hatchets ana natures
weaDODR were freely used, and the police
did a landoffice business bringing about
15 witnesses to tf stify in the cases. Mrs.
Hunt charged William Ludkie with as-
iHtilt and batter?, and as Lud
kie baa a bad reputation in that line,
be having been up only a coup'.e of weeks
as;o for whipping his wife. Magistrate
Wivill fined him $100 and costs and he
iow languishes in the county jail.
Next cam.9 Mary, w ifeof William Lud
;ie, and May Scott who rents rooms from
the Ludkies. They were charged with
disordetly conduct, and as May was a gay
bird and well known to the police, she
was assessed $3 and costs bv magistrate
Wivill who also asked Mary to contribute
$5 and costs.

Island City camp 309. M. W. A . was
agreeably surprise d ia The, pist f; its
work at 9 o'clbcs lan evening, when a
large number of the wives and daughters
or Hi members presented themselves at
the lodge room and asked for admittance.
Work was at once suspended and the
neighbors proceeded at once to welcome
their guests and entertain them in a royal
manner. Tbe objeet of their visit was
apparent when Neighbor Joseph L. Haas
stepped forward and in the names of the
ladies presented the camp with a beauti
ful banner, in connection with which he
made a few brief remarks saying that he
hoped the banner would ever be a
symbol of the principles of the
order, charily, fraternity, love of family,
and love of home, after which he spoke
of the late trouble in the order which
threatened for a time to be its ruin, but
happily it had withstood the Btorm and
now with renewed strength was again
coming to the front and closed by saying
that it was a token of their love and ap
preciation of the order that the ladies
had presented the banner.
In receiving the banner on behalf cf
the camp. Venerable Consul E. F.
Helpenstell thanked the ladies who had
been inftrumental in presenting the ban
ner, and in so doing dwelt at some length
upon the benefits to be derived from the
order, showing what effect it had upon
his moral obligations to his family and
friends, and citing caecs where the fami
lies of deceased members had been bene
fitted beyond measure, after which he
gave some figures showing the marvelous
growth of the order in the past few
months, and the bright prospects ohad.
At the conclusion of Mr. Helpecstell's
remarks, the company adjourned to Tur
ner hall, where Bleuer's orchestra fur
nished delightful music, and a pleasant
social and dance was indulged in, s.fier
which a sumptuous repast was served by
the ladies, to which all did ample j'is
The banner, which cost nearly S100. is

one side of which contains tbe seal of the

A meeting of delegates from itveral of
the labor organizations of Moiine was
held Thursday evening in that city to
take steps toward arranging for a fi'ting
celebration of Labor day on the first Mon
day in September. This wi!! be the first
celebration of the kind held under the
auspices of the workingmen of Moline,
they having, in the two years last past,
joined with their other brethren of the
tri-cities in celebrations in Rock Island
and Davenport. An organization was
perfected by the election of J . M. Hart
zell, chairman, and E. S. Shaffer, secre
tary. Several of the delegates expressed
their opinions in relation to the proposed
celebration and all were unanimous in
the conclusion that it should be made one
of the noted events of the year. It was
proposed that the services of a noted
speaker should be secured, and the name
of Mr. Gompers was suggested as one to
be corresponded with. The active assis
tance of the manufacturers and merchants
will be asked in arranging and industrial
Committees were appointed on grounds
and parade and other preliminaries at

Mr. and Mrs. Francis Murphy had a
narrow escape west of Rosebud, Mont.,
yesterday. A dispatch to the Chicago
News says: "The sleeper Dickinson, on
the Northern Pacific train which left here
two days ago, left tbe track one mile
west of Rosebud, Mont., about 10:30 last
night because of a washout. Tne car
tipped over in the water. Sixteen peo
ple were in the car and several were more
or less injured, but none seriously.
Among the number were: The temper
ance orator, Francis Murphy and wife, of
Pittsburg." J. R. Johnston, father of
Mrs. Murphy, has received a dispatch
assuring him that both she and her hus
band were uninjured, although shaken
up somewhat, and expected to resume
their journey today.

the stockholders of tbe Rock
Island County Brush company to
appear in the United States circuit
court at Peoria the first Monday in Au

plaintiff avers that the local company
issued bonds with intent to defraud the
parent company and without its knowl
edge. These bonds were secured by a
trust deed to pay off indebtedness, and
the Cleveland company brings suit really
to set aside this deed. The trouble be

The finishing teucbes are being put on

replaces the one swept away by the pres
sure of high water three years ago. The
new structure is a mamv nnd splendidly
constructed one, erected at a cost of
$275,000, and from its appearance one
would judgn that it would stand as long
as the two islands w hich it connects re
mains in their places. The work of re
moving the cofir dam ii well under way.
There are pretty good evidences of
Rock Island having a bull club next

feeling ia favor of euch a move, and seek

leagues, with grounds between this city
and Moline. and if desirable, having Mo
line join in supporting the club and call

been suggested thut Dsvenport might
find it profitable to pUy some of its
