The Permanent Teruiinns of the
Thel'anal Commiulita li-rld. But
M ho Knows T- Home The n e an
to the Si'ira t tbe
The board of arocy engiceers to deter
mine permanently the location of the
terminus of tbe Hennepin ctnal, com
pleted its labors Sa urday evening, arriv
iog at a decision which will be in due
time forwarded to the war department at
Washington, from which the first official
information as to itt nature must emanate.
That night Gen. P. left for his home at
Detroit and Capt. Marshall returned to
Chicago. Last evening M&j Mackenzie
dt parted for a tour up the Mississippi to
look after matters pertaining to his de
partment of the government engineer ser
vice. While as has been stated in The Argus
repeatedly, the eng neers have given no
expression as to thi nature of their opin
ions.individually or collectively, and can
not under the regulations of the war de
partment until the roper authorities have
passed udou their findings, there is good
reason to believe there is little hope for
the north route between Turkey
island and Pett.fer's island. This
view on the part of The Aitous
is reached after coDsideration of a num
ber of new developments which have
been made by the engineer's investiga
tion and which were before unknown,
and chief of which is a discovery con
cerning the water mpply of Rock river.
Under the old original survey the dis
charge was 3.900 cubic inches at the
head of Vandruff's island, whereas it is
now shown to be only 1,500 cubic
inches, or not one-third what it was or
iginally supposed to be. This would
have a very important bearing on the
case and might mal;ethe line of the north
shore survey which utilizes the channel
of Rock river below Turkey island im
pruciicable in the matttrof maintaining
the proper depth and stage of water for
tbe passage of canal boats.
Under such circumstances we may ex
pect an cndorsen.enl of the southern
route, or what is bi tter the recommenda
tion on the part of the engineers of an
entirely new survey across the plateau
from Turkey island as already spoken
of in Tna Akgcs and emptjing into the
Mississippi somewhere near the
old distillery. Such a decision
would depend, of course, mainly upon the
board's construction of the latitude of
the phrase "at the mouth of Rock river."
Locally speaking, as well as for the in
terests of the coma unity, the commission
could not adopt a n ore favorable course.
The Davenport Tribune, commenting
on the assertion of The Akgus that Rock
Island had worked for the canal before
Davenport had hea d of it, adds:
This will be news to many people in
this city. The can tl project' was hatched
in Davenport and Ue first article ever
published in advocacy of it was published
1c Ue old Oozeue. then edited by E i
ward Russell. It is true that Rock Island
people have worked hard for tbe canal and
The Akous has always teen one of the
firmest friends of tl e enterprise and is
tO'tby in favor of tie route as selected by
the engineers and has fought tbe few sel
fish tea who !re tiying to fill their pock
ets at the government's expense. If The
Argcs niil investigate a little it wiil learn
that the late Georgi II. French, of this
city, was one of tbe originators of the
I: is true enough tha individuals in
Divtuport w hom the Tribune mentions
have been identified wi 'u tbe canal pro
ject from the first, and it might have
aided the name of Bon. J. H. Murphy to
the list. UutinlUck Island there has
been no individual. Rock Island worked
acidly for tbe canal before it was heard
of fn Davenport beyond a few individ
uals. Rock Island has stood as a unit for
it from tbe first, and the entire city has
worked for it. li Davenport, a few
prominent cit'.zets have done the
bulk of tbe work.

The coins are ooil
Not a little trouble has been-caused re
cently by the new dimes which have been
received from the United States mints.
Many of the coins have imperfectly
milled edges and this fact has led to the
belief that they are counteifeit. Such is
not the case, however :
Cashier John C. Crafts, of the sub
treasury, told a reporter for the Chicago
Inter Ocean yesterday that the imperfec
tion was due to the fact that all the mints
have been overworked during the summer
ana the dimes turned out have tot been
of uniform size or weight, owing to the
haste in which they were made.
At one of the Chicago banks it was
found yesterday that in a package con
taining 100 dimes. 43 of these imperfect
coins were found. One from the New
Orleans mint weighed one-quarter of a
grain more than one from the Pniladelphia
