SOME HENNEPIN HISTORY.
Was the Route Adopted Always
A Claim That tne mw Alane Pre
vented the Adoption f (he
Mhort Uie LiOdk Ako.
The Davenport Democrat cliims that
ever since the discussions have been ia
progress over the respective merits of the
different routes for the Hennepin, the
southern toute, which has been adopted.
and the Robinson route in opposition to
it certain parties have been disposed to
intimate that the crossing of the river to
the south side and the location of the
canal there, was done in contravention of
the design of the projectors of the first
routes and in contravention, likewise, of
the dictates of good engineering, and
merely to wreck spite on the parties in
terested in'haviDg the canal located on
tbe northern side of Rock river. It has
been openly alleged that points have been
strained to carry the canal across the
river, and that no one ever thought of
placing it there until these unfortunate
disputeslcame on to vex the smooth
course of the work.
These assertions, says the Democrat,
which are more implied than dir.ct, are
creditedjin some quarters, but they do
not deserve a moment's consideration.
There isjample evidence to back the as
sertion that the canal would probably have
been located on the south side by the
former surveyors if the law had permitted
Among this evidence mentioned is that
of Engineer G. A. M. Liljencrantz. now
in the office of Captain Marshall in Coi-
cago. Mr. lvljencrantz was engaged on
the surveys for tbe canal in 18S5 '86, and
is a competent authority, as well as an
excellent engineer. Ho wrote a letter to
gentleman there a few diys
ago, in which, among other
matters, be discussed the assertions above
mentioned. He says, that in- tbe first
place, be understands that years ago Gen.
Wilson spoke of the possibility of locat
ing the canal on the south side of Rock
river, and that i d J 1 S S ." when he. Mr.
Li'jencrantz himself, discu?sed the feas
ibiiity of a route there with Maj. Bea
yuard, the iatter responded that such a
route bid already been sussested. but
that tte river and harbor bill, under which
the woik was then being; done, limited
the mouth of the canal to a point at or
aboye Rock Island, and therefore rendered
useless any labor spent in considering
the south side. '
The Democrat concludes:
Tne last river and harbor bill, tbe one
unJer which tbe Tecent surveys were made
located the mouth of the canal at the
muuth of Rock river, thus allowing far
greater elasticity to tbe route above the
terminus, and enabling the engineers to
consider tbe southern route which the law
bad prevented them looking at before.
That they would have crossed the river
loBg ago, and located the canal as it is
now located there is no room for an in
telligent doubt, but they could not do it.
That Capt. Wheeler, or any of the
other men interested in tbe making of
the latter survey, are alone in consider
ing tbe southern route practicable and
preferable to the other is another error,
for Mr. Liljencrantz expressed a decided
preference lor it, from the standpoint of
an engineer. He has been over the
ground in all the vicinity, and is thor
oughly familiar with it all tbe way
through, and his opinion is good. lie
ia supported furthermore, by other engi
neers who are also well qualified to sneak.
Tbe southern route had a practical recog
nition Ions ago, and its survey was not

The county's business was dispatched
by the board last week with a correctness
and dispatch which snows that the mem
bers are interested in something besides
their salaries. Tbe first session opened
Monday afternoon of last week and the
final adjournment was made Tuesday
afternoon. Less than ten hours' time was
devoted to the July meeting, but the work
was all done, and well done. Clerk Wei-

record in the matter of time. Genesoo

Managing Director D. H. Louderback
of the Davenport & Rock Island Railway
company, and Dr. W. L. Al!en, of the
Davenport Central Railway company,
were in conference for an hour at the
Harper this morning and went to Daven
port together after dinner. When seen
later Mr. Louderback said there was
nothing new, but the fact of their con
ference indicates that negotiations of
some sort are in progress. Whether they
indicate tbe transfer of the whole or any
part of the great sjstem of the tri-city

This morning a pair of hard looking
individu i!s, strirgers in the city, entered
Simon & Mosenfelder's store and one of
them desired to look at a pair of trousers.
Mr. Mosenftlder showed him several pair
which he took into a small closet to try
on. Ia the meantime Mr. Mosenfelder
went so the front of the store to get aa
other pair of pantaloons, acd when he
returned tbe would be purchaser bad
emerged from the dressing room, and on
looking about Mr. Mosenfelder was satis
fied that one pair of pantaloons was
missing. He felt confident, too, that the
companion of the pretended purchaser
had them, but did not want to accuse
him until he was sure. He accordingly
took ou; bis tape measure, and approach
ing mm, saia, iet me see wnat you
measure around the waist." .The fellow
drew back, with the remark that he want
ed no pants, whereupon Mr. Mosenfelder
accused him of having stolen a pair, and
haying them wrapped about his waist,
The man at once opened his coat and de
livered the stolen goods. The two men
then left the store. Mr. Mosenfelder
informed Ihi other clothing merchants.
acd about noon the two men were seen to
enter I. Barnburner's store. The police
were notified and Officer Kramer arrested
them and took them to Simon & Mosen
felder's store, where Mr. M. identified
the thief, but tbe other objected to
accompanying the officer to the station
and made a pass at him, but Mr. Kramer
was not to be bulldozed and started with
his prisoners for tbe station. On Six
teenth the rebellious thief broke away
and made a rush for First avenue. Fred
Eaters, "Officer Skilligen," happened to
be coming along and Kramer turned the
other man over to him and pursued the
fugitive along FirBt avenue to Seven
teenth where he caught him. The men
gave their names as James Kelly and
John Brennan, of Lincoln. Neither had
any money, though one had on several
pairs of pantaloons.

by local applications, as tbev cannot

There is only one way to cure deafness,
ana mat is oy constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an infUmed condi
tion of the mucous li&ing of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tune gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely elosad
deafness is the result, and unless tin im
flammation can be taken out and thin
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of 10 are caused bv catarrh.
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surface.
We will give 100 for anv case nf
