Stern Ire The Address v.
Tbe public meeting at the rooms of the
Rock Island Citzeus'ImproTtraent asso
ciation this norning called by Gen. Poe
or the canal commission on determining
the terainns of the Hennepin canal, wag
attended by a large number of representa
tive citizens of Rock Island and Daven
port. Gen. Poe presiding, announced
the object of the meeting. The question
of utility, bo said, was not before the
meeting. Hepobe of congress having
fixed the terminus at the mouth of Rock
river, and thu questions that had ariseu
as the proprr route to that terminus.
Two lines hsi been surveyed and be ex
hibited a mep showing both, with tbe
north route i i yellow, and the south in
red. There were some arguments in
favor of each, not common to botb.
It was the purpose of the com
mission to make comparison between
tbe advantages and disadvantages of
both, and to consider especially the com
mercial and engineering relations to botb.
Gen. Poe thea stated that the commission
would be glad to hear from any and all
present on tb 3 questions under consider
ation. President Jackson, of the association,
stated that Rrk Island had already been
heard by the commission and would like
to hear from Davenport.
B. F. Tillinghast spoke on behalf of
the Davenport Business Men's associa
tion, which was represented at the meet
ing by a strorg committee. The people
of Iowa, Mr. Tillingbast said, had been
working for i) years for tbe completion
of the canal, with one end in view the
completion of tbe great project at tbe
earliest possitle moment. Tbe quts ion
now was not one of route in any tens?
but for the spi edy construction of tbe
waterway, to -.he end that shippers might
have the benellt of the reduction in rates
at the earliest day. It made no difference
which route was adapted, wa want the
canal. Favirg full confidence in the
judgment ot the engineers all that w9
prayed for now was a speedy report in
order that con tructim might gi ahead
with ss little interruption as possible.
D. 2T. Richsrdson of Divenport, took
practically tbe same view.
Capt. T. J. Robinson stated that be
agreed with lb 3 gentlemen frjm Daven
port with reference to tbe importance of
the canal above that of r mte, but he un
dertook to say tbat with a residence of 20
years here and familiar with the lay of tbe
land be ought to know more about it than
Capt . Wheeler, although be bad tbe utmost
confidence in Capt. Wheeler's engineer
icg ability. He lben wentinto an enumer
ation of tbe advantages of the north route,
speaking of it its tbe most approachable.
Then again high water will cuixe
trouble. Cot fining the water within
dams will cause damage to bridges . C ipt.
Marshall here interrupted Capt. Robin
son, stating tbat on hoth of the routes
tbe canal will ba submerged as far up as
tbe foot of Vandruff island. but on either
route the canal could be kept above hitch
water. That t!iere are three btsins on
thesou'.h aids and none on the north
side, unless "you construct one."
Gen. Poe ashed what special advan
taje to tbe cortawest will tbe northern
route have over tbe southern route.
Capt. Robinson replied tbat there was
no h-irhor on tbe south side. x
Gen. Poe What is the use of con
strue ipg elevators on the low ground;
why not build "hem around here on tbe
Capt Robinsoa Tbo canal can be car
ried down the present northern route un
til the bead of Turkey island, and then rut
across until yru reach the Mississippi
ri?er; there yoi then find a high ridge
where eleva'ors ( an be constructed so that
grain can be lifted up out of river boa's
aid transferred i ito canal boats.
Mbj. .Mackenzie Do you think there
will be any trat.sfer of freight tbat has
b.-en sbipped 500 miles to travel 180 miles
J. 8. Wylie I am interested in seeing
th's canal built a soon as possible, be
cause I want to tee a living reduction on
a ton of coal.
Gen. Poe Do you think there will be
any difficulty in 1 inning tbe btrges across
the Mississippi and making transfer
and having eleva ors on that side of the
Mr. Wylie No sir; none. It is nat
ural that all tram fers of western freight
will be mado on tbe western
side of tbe Missistippi, and the produce of
western Illinois be made on the east bank
There were fur her remarks in which
David Sears, Ctpt Wheeler. E H
Gujer, William Jackson, ex Congress
man Gest and Capt. Marshall took part,
and then Capt. Iiobinson took the floor
again and monop ilized pretty much all
of the time until noon.
The friends of t he north shore line cer
tainly gained notl ing through the pres
ence and argumen of Capt. Robinson .
Hia disposition wis to appear in dicta
tory light before t le commission, whereas
that of the Daveaport speakers, who,
while sustaining tbe south or adopted
iine, concealed their preferences under a
strong and urgent advocacy of the canal
t the earliest possible moment the
proper course to pursue. That the canal
should be of first consideration is the
wish of all public spirited citizens not
moved entirely by selfish inclination.

At a in ee tin 2 of the Woman's Press
club, in Washington last winter, a very
important topic came tip lor discussion.
Every member was interested in it.
When Miss Helen Waterson rose, silence
and expectation settled upon the assem
bly. She put the whole matter right in
a few clear, crisn. lotrical remarks. Am
Miss Waterson took her seat again there
came a still, small voice from the admir
ing group behind her. It was intended
ror a whisper, but it penetrated every
nook and corner of the room. It said:

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a con
stitutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Uo., Toltdo, Ohio, is the onlv constitu
tional cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses from 10 drops to a
teaspoonful. It acts directly upon the
