"and tomorrow tn iring we will lay out
the accurate survey. As you see the
stone and cement f.re already beginning
to arrive, and we txpeet to erect here as
fine a piece of masonry as can be found
When asked how long it was expected
the bridge would be closed, Lieut.
Thompson replied, from one to three
weeks. "W shal' aim to inconvenience
the public as little as possible," be said,
and if any suggestions can be mads as to
bow to close thu bridge for a shorter
length of time tha we contemplate, we
shall be thankful f.tr them."
This morning Supt. Schnitger. of the
Davenport & Rock Is!and company, took
up the curves at Twenty fourth street and
Third avenue, run the double track into
a single there and built east to the east
side of Twenty-fourth, and aleo put a
crossover on the slough bridge so that the
cars may run around the viaduct while
the work is in progress, and until the
work of raiting the bridge commences.
A 30 foot strip on the east side of Twenty-fourth
has been fenced off by Lieut.
Thompson anfi thus a roadway to traffic

mincM. Capt. W. L. MarsLall, of the United
States engineer corps, was notified by
Gen. William Poe yesterday that the
board of engineers on the western termin
us of the Illinois and Mississippi canal,
oegins its sessions in the United States
engineer's office at R-ck Island Sept. 2,
and will then proceed to Milan, about
five miles distant from Rock Island
The board will consider the verv heated
controversy between the United Htates
engineers and mtny Rock Is'and
property owners over the route
of the Hennepin canal down the
Rock river U tbe Mississippi. Captain
Marsbhll has insisted that a southern
route was the best, in view of the high
prices asked for property along the pro
posed northern route. The property
owners combatted this view, and carried
their fight before the war department.
The board, which consists of General Pae,
Major Alexander Mackerz:e and Contain
Mat shall, was tben a pointed to tiva a
full hearing to ail par lies in int reet, and
report back to the sec-etary of war. where
the final decision n-)w rests. Chicago
There is an error in the above as to the
exact date when the canal board is to
meet here. The time Is Sept. 7, one week
from today. The board will meet at 9 a.
m. at Maj. Mackenzie s office and pro
ceed to Milan.
Saturday Yacht Itare.
Saturday's yacht race at Davenport
wasn't a success. At 2:30 the three com
peting boats put out ficm Davenport, but
the Caprice put ack, having snapped her
port mainstay. The injury was repaired
but Eail had scarcely t een hoisted before
the starboard stay gav.j way. The Lucy
had also suffered frcm a broken Star, hut
was fixed up and had made a start with
the SarsLiefore the second injury to the
Caprice was repaired. The Lucy crossed
the line at 3:17 and the Sarah crossed
three'seconds later. 1: was practically a
perfectly even start. Honors between tbe
two sloops were about even down to tbe
turning buoy, but on tLe return trip the
Lucy sbowc d her light wind merits by grad
ually pushing ahead nd reaching the
starting line at 4:40. ' The Sarsh arrived
at 4:43.' Lucy'B time, 1 23, the Sarah's,
1:23. Owing to tbe extreme lightness of
the wind, which had promised better
things earlier in the afternoon, the course
was not sailed tbe second time and the
race therefore does not count. All bets
As soon as the Caprice had been put in
sailing condition she m ineuyered for the
starling point and went over the course a
mile or so in the rear of the other two
boats. Her starting time was 3:35, ber
finishing, 4:56. Time, 1:20. As tn the
previous race, the Lucy was sailed by
Walter Johnson and the Sarsh by Charles
Faulkner; Dr. R. W. Hill sailed tbe Caprice.

The funeral or the'late Arthur Stevens,
of Jacksonville, occurred from the resi
dence of W. H. Hayes on Twentieth
street at 4:30 yesterday afternoon Rev.
W. 8. Marquis conducting the services,
assisted by Dr. Milligan,- of Jacksonville.
The pall bearers were W-B. Ferguson,
J- T. Nofuker, Dr. J. W. Stewart, C. L.
Walker. S. J Keator and Dr. G." E.'
Barth. The interment was at Chippian
nock. The Jacksonville Courier of the 2.7th
Tbe death of Arthur Sterens at the
home of Charles Catlin. on State street,
at about 2 o'clock last night was not un
expected. Many of the young men. and
woman cf Jacksonville were his school
mates in the High school more than 10
years ago. Some of our voung people
were his pupilj in 1884 5 when ha was a
teacher in tbe snroe school. Dr. Mc
Laueblin find E. P. Irving were among
bis clagmttts id the Illinois college class
of lt84. What is peculiar in his' case is
that many of .his 5rm?st friends are men
and women of twice his ago. The ma
turity of bis mind, and the earnestness of
his manner are explanation of tbis trait.
The physical limitations of Mr. Stev
ens have, always been very great. Health
with him has been the exception an 1 pain
the mli. ,Yet, owing to a strong wi.l
and an ardent love of study, his intellec
tual culture became exceptional. It was
bis varied culture, with his geuial humor
and his high appreciation of everything
that was tood and beautiful and true,
that made him so deservedly a favorite
with every class in the community. When
a few months ago we heard of the brave
little woman who so nobly gave up her
school and becamo his wife, everyone
prayed that through her efforts he might
be restored to health.
When, four weeks ago, he came with
Mrs. Stevens to Jacksonville, and in
spite of 'he skill of fci trusted physician,
and the attention of friends, hope after
hope slipped away, all united in admiring
the devotion of lhe girl-wife, who, with
he r corstant attentions, cheered his last
days. Mr. Stevens was in the 39th year
of his age.
ALFRED SKISXER'S FCXERAL.
The funeral of Alfred Skinner occurred
from Trinity church yesterday afternoon
at 1:30 o'clock. Rev. It. Fr Sweet
preached a touching funeral sermon, in
the conrse of which he spoke of tbe ex
emplary habits of the young man, from
which he drew aa example for others, and
mentioned the consolation it would be to
the sorrowing ones in their affliction.
The pall bearers were Charles Reimers,
William Keater, Thomas Lee. Ralph
Haverstick, CjrusDart, Jr.,Charies Case,
Wortby Dart, Harlos King, of Joliet, and
two class-mates from Geneseo. . The in
terment was made in Chippiannock.
Rey.S.T. Smythe. of Dellafield, and
John M. Taylor and W. W. Wallace, of
Milwaukee, arrived this morning to at
tend the funeral, but were too late.

Fuller 1'uuldn't Wait.
A passenger on tbe outgoing 3:15 train
on tbe St. Paul road Saturday, lost his
hat between Hampton and Rapids City
just as the train was (low ing up to take on
a gang of laborers who had been repair
ing tbe track. Tbe excited individual
rushed up to Capt. Fuller and requested
that the train be held until he recovered
his headgear, which was a last year's
straw. Fuller unfeelingly refused to
grant the request, and informed tbe hat
lees man that be would get left if he at
tempted to regain it. The passenger
tried the experiment, however, and suc
ceeded admirably in securing his hat, but
when he came to engaging in a sprinting
matchwi'.h tbe lacomotive, he wasn't
"In it," and he was compelled to count
the ties to Rapids City, his destination.
