Tbe Davenport Tribune terms the
action of the Itock Island Citizens' Im
provement association at its ppecidl meet
ing Thursday night in adopting resolu
tiens providing for the entertainment of
the commission to pass upon the locai
tion of tbe Betinepiojcanal terminus, and
favoricg the ncrth shore route.a "cheeky
proccedinR," and in explanation of this
assertion it saj.-: "Tbe duty of this com
mision is to in est:gte at. to which is
the txjBt route for the canal, the north or
south. The gentlemen on the board arc
engineers of ab lity and wide experience
and know just what they are af pointed
for, and when tiey make up their report
the authorities will know that it is cor
rect. Well, tho Citizens' league evident
ly bas an idea that the commissioners
don't understand their business and ac
cordingly refohed to tcudt r the 'services
of a committee from the organization for
tl.ej purpose of assisting .the commission
in reaching a just conclusion."
Tub Ahul's f uls to see the action of
the Citizens' Improvement association in
the same light '.be Tribune does. Had
the association adopted resolutions before
it was asked to and before an investiga
tion had been ordered as to the route, it
would most assuredly have been a
"cheeky proceeding," hut as The Argcs
understands it the commission is desir
ous of gaining ail the information possi
ble with reference to the route, and all
that cu be Said for or againBt both tbe
established line and the one upheld by
the objections: 9 to tbe work of the
engineers. In view of these facts as far
as the Improvement association is con
cerned, its action was perfectly proper
and in order, no matter w hat the nature
or expression of the resolutions. As far
as providing for the entertainment of the
visitors goes, the association sim
ply provided for extending the courtesies
expected of a boiy of representative cit
izens, and it is hardly expected the Dav
enport Business Men's association will
fail to act similarly.
Whiie The Argus has full confidence
in the wisdom of the board of engineers
to determine the proper route for the
canal, irrespectiva of its effect upon pri
vate interests, it. hopes that every cour
tesy will be shows tbe officers while here,
ard that they may be provided with all
information bearing upon the subject
tbey are to consider.
Tee Akgtjs is for the canal first, last
and all the time. It is for Hennepin first
and route afterward. The measure is of
more importance than its route or where
it terminates. The Argcs would very
much have regretted to have seen any
other route than taat emptying into the
mouth of Rock river adopted. It believes
the government a( ted wisely in adopting
tbe Rock river route. It believes it
was the original ii.tection of tbe govern
ment that the can il should follow the
north line of Rock river to its mouth, and
that such a course would have been pur
sued by the engineers but for the exorbi
tant prices demanded for property rights,
which blocked the engineers in their
work and drove them to the south side of
the river where thiy found they could
sire the government f50.000. The
Argcs has upheld the engineers because
it believes they acted disinterestedly acd
for theibest interests of the goyernment;
because it believed that antagonirm to
them would have the effect of an
tagonism to the catial and give the ap
pearance of a local strife among the three
cities here over a measure that has always
b-en termed.of nat;onul importance, such
as indeed it most certainly is. Viewing
the situation candid y, it seems difficult to
anive at but one cc Delusion, that greedy
property (holders thought they saw a
chance to obtain their own figures from
the government, and they stood out for
thtra even though drove the caual from
our doors and threa .ened the entire meas
ure, and then left the matter of appealing
to the association for assistance until all
other methods had fiiled, and after attor
neys bad bteto secretly sent to Washington
to sacure a change cf the established line,
and failed. It was for this reason, the
Argcs belieyes, that the association did
not act at the time tn effort was made to
have it do so some time ago, eTen to the
preparation of resolutions, which it wag
then hoped to rail-oad through. The
association did not take steps until it was
Tns Argcs maintains the position it
baa held all along; th tt the engineers are
not to blame for the present condition,
and should be upheld, and the blame
placed where it belongs. In a lise
spirit tbe course of the government's
special board should be sustained, no
matter what it is. To fight the efforts of
the government to establish tbe canal cer
tainly does not aid the success
of the measure. It rather
jeopardizes it, and r uber than see tbe
project a failure The Argcs would pre
fer to see it on any ro ite. To is has been
our position from ".he first and that
position we still maintain.
