Editor of Thh Argcs In your editorial
of the 29th you sy: "The Davenport
people like the people, as a whole, of
Rock Island, don't care a copper
so that the canal reaches the Mississippi
Rock Island," It may possibly
ss the bill provides, "at or near
help clear this unfortunate discussian if
you will be so kind as to say that the act
of September 19. 1890. requires tbe ter

different thing tban "at or near Rxk
If the law had been as you state it, I
doubt whether tbe southern route would
ever have been surveyed. As tbe law
reads, however, the deeppst water ia the
Mississippi riv-r and in Rjck river near
its mouth, absola'trly fixes the terminus
"at the mouth of Rock river." somewhere
within a radius of probably 200 feet near
the south bank of Rock river "at its
If anybody can show, as a private en
gineering question, in view of the law,
how the "northern route" cm be used
with certainty to carry seven feet of water
to the "mouth of Rock river" at reasona
ble expense, or at anywhere near the
same cost eliminating entirely cost of
way, as by the approve 1 route, then I am
perfectly willing that they shall secure a
change of route, but my opinion, has been
expn jsed that tbe only route that can nl
reasonable expense with certainty comply
with the law is the southern line, and,
that being the case, as anybody with
ordinary common sense can see after ex
amining tbe maps of surveys made, I can
not understand tbe opposition and abuse
myself and assistants are receiving from
Rock Islaad parties. We propose to
neither develop, injure, nor destroy water
powers, nor toueh property not ntcessary
for the construction of the canal, but we
do certainly expect to fail to de
velop private ater powers at toe
expense of the Uni'ed States, and
fail to parckase preperty of ao earth
ly use. or benefit to the pnIU. As
for the water powers, the fiow of Rock
ri7rorerdanM will siijl ooatlsne,
and if tbe owners desire they may devop
it at their own expense, even to the ex
tent of fciektn OMt the U. S. dann aHve
them, proposed at least fcmr feet above
any existing dam. The water is still
there, fiowiag in front of their property;
let them use it and develop its power if
it be so very valuable. A half dozsa of
your people want something for nothing
and dont seem obeinordertogetit. They
are consequently mad, and having money
tbey make sll tbe mischief they can with
it. As for ourselves, we say. when we
have to. our official and disinterested
say. Howsoever the fight does not per
sonally in any way concern us. Get your
canal located anywhere. We will build
it as rapidly and in as good form as pos
sible on that location, whether it be a
foolish one or not. We only give our
opinions when wanted, and do our pro
fessional work as direeted. Very re

"As expected, it was antagonized by A.
K. Hirschie, of Davenport. He offered as
a substitute a resolution favoring such a
system of local option under high license
as would afford protection and prohibition
to those communities desiring the same.
He supported this in a ringing speech, the
convention meanwhile being in an uproar.
The Republiiacs, he said, were on t.,e
wrong track rsgarding. the prohibition
law, and they would Hud it out. Sena

New York, July 'A There is a book
maker down at Sheepshead bay named
Lackman who has a very fine vein of uat
viral humor. Before the first race Tues
day afternoon Mr. Lackman was standing
on his box feeling unusually humorous.
The betting had hardly began when a
little man with a red face, who dad been
wandering aimlessly down the long line
of bookmakers, stopped in front of Book
maker Lackmarr's slate and stared hard
"Mighty long odds against Kingstock,"
remarked the little man at the lat. Mr.
Iackman glanced at his board lazily.
Kingstock was B0 to 1. "That hain't no 50
to i horse," continued the httle man;
"that '9 a good fair horse,''
Lackman Was Accommodating.
"Yes," responded Mr. Lackman with
keen wit. "I know he is a remarkably
fine animal. That"s the reason I am lay
ing 50 to 1 against him,"
"But I ought to know more than you
do," persisted the little man, who evident
ly had not yet learned that no hum;ru be
ing knows as much as a wise bookmaker.
"I think he'll win."
"Well, well," cried Mr. Lackman mer
rily. "You really think that Here's
what I think," atnl he rubbed aut 50 to 1
and c.halked up 75 to 1.
"Why don't you make it bX to IV said
the little man, getting redder. Mr. Lack
man is of an accommodating deposition
and' marked up 100 to 1. "Now," said the
little man, pulling out a roll of money,
I'll bet you 50 on Kingstck."
The Little Man Scoops the Cash.
Mr Lackman called to -his sheet vriter,
"$5,000 to 50." And the little man took the
ticket and walked away. When the raee
was over, and Kingstock had won, the lit
tle red-faeetl.nan was the first in lme be
hind Mb. Lftekman-'s box.
"Yeu se," said he, as Mr. Lackman's
cashier was counting out $5,050 to him. "I
