The board of army engineers to deter
mine permaDeo'ly the location of the
terminus cf the Eennepin Cin&1, com
pleted its labors Saturday evening, arriv
ing at a decision which will be in due
time forwarded to tbe war department at
Washington, from which the first official
information as to its nature must emanate.
That night Gen. Poe left for his home at
Detroit and Capt. Marshall Teturned to
Chicago. Last evening Msj Mackenzie
d parted for a tour up the Mississippi to
look after matteis pertaining to his de
partment of the government engineer ser
vice. While as has teen stated in The Argcs
repeatedly, the engineers have given do
expression as to the nature of their opin
ions.individually or collectively, and can
not under the regulations of the war de
partment until ll e proper authorities have
passed UDOn their findings, there is good
reason to believe there is little hope for
the north roite between Turkey
island and P.;ttifer's island. This
view on the part of The Argcs
is reached after consideration of a num
ber of new developments which have
been made by tue engineer's investiga
tion and which were before unknown,
and chief of which is a discovery con
cerning the water supply of Rock river.
Under the old original survey tbe dis
charge was 3.800 cubic inches at the
head of Vandrull's island, whereas it is
now shown to be only 1,500 cubic
inched, or not one-third what it was or
iginally supposed to be. This would
have a very in portant bearing on the
case and might make the line of the north
shore survey which utilizes the channel
of Rock river telow Turkey island im
practicable in the matter of maintaining
the proper depth and stage of water for
tbe passsge cf canal boats.
Under such circumstances we may ex
pect an endorsement of the southern
loate, or what is better the recommenda
tion on the part of the engineers of an
entirely new survey across the plateau
from Turkey isUnd as already spoken
of ia Thb Akgcs and tmptjiog into the
Mississippi sc mewhere near the
old distillery. Such a decision
would depend, of course, mainly upon the
board's construct. on of the latitude of
the phrase "at the mouth of Rock river."
Locally speaking, as well as for the in
terests of the community, the commission
could not adopt a more favorable course.
The Davenport Tribune, commenting
on the assertion of The Abgus that Rock
Island had worked for tbe canal before
Davenport bad h:ardof it, adds:
This will be news to many people in
this city. The cnnal project was hatched
in Davenport anc tbe first article ever
published in advocacy of it was published
In tLe old Gazette, then edited by El
ward Russell. It is true that Rock Island
people have work ed hard for the canal and
The Akgcs has always teen one of the
firmest friends of tbe enterprise and is
today in favor of the route as selected by
the engineers and bas fought the few sel
fish Ciea who ire trying to fiil their pock
ets hi tiie t'overnxeut's expense. If The
Akgcs iU investigate a little it wiil learn
that the late Geoi ee II. French, of this
city, was one of the originators of the
I: is true enough tba' individuals in
Davenport whom the Tribune mentions
bare been identit ed wi 'u the canal pro
ject from tbe firs'-, and it might have
aided tbe name of Hon. J. H. Murphy to
the list. But in Hock Island there has
been no individuil. Rock Inland worked
Siiidly for tbe caaal before it was heard
of fn Davenport beyond a few individ
uals. K Jtk Island has stood as aunitfor
it from the first, and the entire city has
worked for it. In DaveDport, a few
prominent citizens hive done the
bulk of tbe work.
The Chicken Meavnn .
On and after tomorrow tbe life of the
festive prairie chicken will be in tbe
greatest jeopaidy. The local sports are
buay cleaning up their old guns and tar
getingtbeir new ones, loading shells and
fixing up their outfits generally for the
chicken season. Although the law has
not been violated to a great extent, theie
ae still large fl cks of chickens in the
BiTrounding coui.lry, and it is expected
that tbe hunters will wage a war of ex
termination, sparing neither age nor sex;

night; and the whirr of the retreat of tbe
chicken-hearted b iall be heard tbroughi

Not a little trouble has beea-caused re
cently by the new dimes which have been
received from the United States aints.
Many of the coins have inrperfectly
milled edges and this fact has led to tbe
belief that they are counteifeit. Such ia
nat tbe case, howevei :
CaBhier John C. Crafts, of tbe sub
treasury, told a tf porter 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 rot hn
of uniform size or weight, owing to the
nasie in which they were made.
At one of the Chicago banks it was
found yesterday that in a pcksge con
taining 100 dimes. 42 of these imperfect
coins were found. One from the New
Orleans mint weighed one-quar'er of a
grain more than one from the Pailadelphia
