RIVE ht SURVEY.
The First Tbraaxh Ose or the 9118
isslpptKow BelncSiade When the
tarty Will Bt aeh Roek Island.
It may seem t trange te the average
citizen that at this late day in the nine
teenth century tie government is at work
upon the first tl orouab survey of the
Mississippi valley, from bluff to bluff.
Yet such is the case, says the Hawkey e.
It seems almcs; incredible, considering
the importance of the river as a channel
of trade and also the importance from a
strategic point of view in case of war,
that the work has been so long delayed.
The lower river, as far north ts Vicks
burg, was surveyed before the war, but
the work was interrupted by that event
and never until recently taken up again
The surveying party is under the charge
of C W. Stewatt, of the engineer corps,
assisted by Engineers Maltby, France
and Morrow. The party is further aug
mented by 10 to 15 linemen, axemen and
other assistants. This party, now en
gaged in making the triangulations front
point to point on the river bank, left St
Louis about Apr ! 26. On the 6;h of
May they began working north from the
middle lock of the Keokuk canal. They
will continue to press up stream until
Rock IsUnd is reiched, which point they
expect to make by August 1. The party
will then turn bt.ck and, beginning at
Alton, to which point the survey has
been completed, go over the course once
more, carrying the surveys inland to the
bluffs on either si le, making soundings
in the river and locating sandbars, isl
ands, sloughs, etc.
During this second trip the topography
of the country acd river will be noted
every stretch of prairie or swamp land,
timber siougbs, creeks, hil!s and valleys
are accurately set down in the note books
and the rough sketches from which will
be worked out duncij the winter the offi
The Patrol, wLich carries the party, is
commanded by Cipt. T. C Ilockridge,
Ed. Meade is the a)tti;ineer, and
Wm. Kelley is the pilot. Mr. Kelley is
thoroughly familiar w.th tLe upper river,
and formerly commanded boats in the
Diamond Jo service.
CONDITION OF THE CROPS.
How Insectnanil Cnfavornble Weath
er Have Afl'ec ed 4 rain in I liinolo.
The following bulletin just issued by
the state board of agriculture shows that
the crop oulook in . Illinois is not so
bright at the present time as supposed.
Winter Wheal The June condition of
winter wheat is four points lower than
on Mav 1. whi;n the rennru indi
cated more than 6 per cent more than an
average yiein. wn:ie correspondents now
think but 102 p-r cent of an average
vield will ha relstf-d. Thi ic o?
' -..w . J , , ! J Vj L
cent better than the condition on June
2U. 13U0. the oat lou?e has injured
wheat in some localities and phinoh h
have also been pri sent .
Many complains have been received
of a small trreen has whirh fiila th hc,ii
of wheat, but it has not yet been deter
mined as in ine amount or injury it has
done. Prof. Forlcs is of opinion that it
has done no serious dnmt.ee to wheat this
season. It is veiy similar to the erain
plant louse whint did so m :ch damage
to oats last season, and they are often
taken for each otter.
In a few coun'. ies rust and smut have
been injurious, yit in spite of all these
drawbacks there ;s now promise of an
unusually large crop.
In ttie southern division of the state
winter wheat is a'jout all harvested, and
also in part of the central division,
and while it is impossible to form an
estimate at present as to yield per acre,
a fair average is anticipated. The berry
is round and plump, but some localities
report only two Brains abreast instead of
three, as usual. The June 2 condition
in southern Illinois is 106 per cent, in
central Illinois 100 per cent and in the
northern division 93 per cent.
Spring wheat has improved somewhat
in the northern d vision of the state since
May 1, and is now but two points below
an average, but in eentral Illinois fbe
June 20 condition is nine points below
that of May 1.
While the late reports do not indicate
a very large yield of oats acd are not so
good as on May 1 by one point, tbre is
nevertheless a fair prospect for 83 per
cent of an average yield per acre. There
are comparatively fw counties in the
state which do nc r report the grain plant
loube as damaging the oats, but their
depredations haV'3 not been so severe as
last season. In counties where there has
been little rain until the last few weeks the
oats are heaiJing ont very 6hort, but in a
tew counties where they have had rain
they have grown rank and lodged so they
cannot be cut. The June 20 condition of
oats is 94 per cent in the northern divi
sion of the 6tate, 82 in the central and 25
in the southern division.
The area devc ted to corn this season
is one point larger than in 1890. In the
northern division it is about the same as
last year, but there is an increase of two
points in b'h tht central and southern
divisions. The most fav rable outlook is
in the northern division where the present
condition is Javoiable for 95 per cent of
an average yield Der acre, 93 per cent in
the central and 94 per cent in the south
Corn as a rule, is from one to two
weeks later than usual, but the seed used
was much above the average, and should
there be no.drawl.acks an average. yield
per acre may be anticipated.
'CornJias not .be en exempt from the de
predations of insects. Tbat planu dearly
and on sod groun 1 was icjured by cut
worms and had tt be replanted, acd web
worms have alsi injured it in some
places. 8ome coin ties report damage to
corn by ants. Tie stand is very uneven
in some localities owing to insects and
the dry weather hi May.

He will be succeeded at Topeka by T. J.

is generally understood in railroad circles
that W.-H. Truesdale is soon to accept a
prominent position on the Rock Island.
His title hai not been made public, but
in authority over the departments of
operation and traffic he will rank next to
President Cable. Every effort is being
made to preserve secrecy regarding the
appointment, but it is now certain that
that is the position Mr. Truesdale is
looking on with most favor, although
three great systems are endeavoring to
secure his services. Chicago Herald.
