The location of the west end of ilia
Illinois and Mississippi Canal is still beirjg
agitated by persons who favor the north
ern instead of (he toutbern route, the
latter bavins been approved by the war
department last March. Oen. Grant last
night received the communication from
ex-Congressman Gest which the latter had
published before sending to the depart
ment. He claims that the caual was per
manently located ou the north side of
Rock river before the appropriation of
1890, and that the location on the
south side is an unreasonable and un
authorized change, lie also claims
that the south side location will bring the
western terminus of the canal on low
ground subject to overflows and ice gorges,
difficult and expensive of access bv
railroads or teams, and that it is doubtful
whether it is accessible by boats on the
Mississippi river. For the north side it
is stated that the termination will be a
natural harbor nearer the cities of Rock
Island, Davenport, and Moline, and ac
cessible by land and by the Mississippi
river. Inquiry at the war department on
this subject shows that there will be co
further obstacle put in the way of Capt.
Marshall in prosecuting the purchase of
rights of way along the southern ronte
in accordance with hia recommendations.
It is stated in support of this proposition
that Capt. Marshall has given careful
study to this route and is convinced that
it is best for the public, while a corpora
tion wanted to avail itself of an oppor
tunity to secure a good water-power
evinces a desire to impede the engineer's
office. So far as the war department is
concerned the matter was settled last
March and the case will not be reopened.
