Tbe sssociated press sent out & tele
gram from Washington Situriay nittht to
the effect that Secretary of the Treasury
Footer had svleciel as the site of Rock
Island's public building be southwest
corner of Second avenue and Sixteenth
street. This t-imDly approves Commis
sioner Avery 'a first choice, and prob
ably determines the matter, there being
nothing left for the government to do
now but to condemn the property and
tike possession. In the meantime the
plans for tha building may be drawn, and
the actual work of construction begun
early in tbe spring.
It is hardly likely that the efforts of
disappointed property holders, led by the
Union, of this city, will avail anything in
tbe way of delaying opernllons, fuch as
was the case with the Hennepin cacal
Rock Island finds itself in pretty much
the same position it did with reference to
tbe canal route. It wants the project, on
the beet possible location tbe government
can find, irrespective of individual pref
erences or wishes.

shielJ the individual who is to blame for
the discovery o tbe southern route for
tbe Hennepin canal terminus by repub
lishing so much of The Argus' interview
with JIfcj Mackenzie as p na:ns to the
discovery by ihe special b'rd cf enei
neers of the deficiency of the water dis
charge at the head of Yandruffs island.
which made the northern route mpracti-
cable from Turkey island to tbe mouth of
Rock river. Not considering the stamp
of inconsistency which the revelation of
this fict places upon the Uuiou's con
demnation of the engineers, whose woik
t term?, "an engineering wrong," it
uses it now to excuse the property hold
er who directs its course in all its rela.
tions to the public. 3ut why pub
lish a part of Mai. Mackenzie's views?
Why garble his words and utterances to
protect another from public condemna
tion? Why not publish all that the ma
jor said on tbe subject in this same inter
view oa the subject? Perhaps this
part of Maj. Maekeczle'e interview in tbe
Alters so carefully omitted by the Union
may throw as much light oa the actual
situation as any part of it. It immedi.
ately follows that portion which tbe Union
"It is cot a fact major?'' asked the re
porter, "that the south route was never
contempfated by the engineer department
until the trouble came up with tbe prop
erty holders along the north route?''
"Why there is no secret about that,"
Maj. Mackenzie replied. "Capt. Mar
shall stated it here repeatedly and I think
the engineers are all satisfied of tbe fact,
that the original engineers looked to the
south side of tbe river for a club to hold
over tbe property holders who were ob
stinate in coming to terms with the gov
ernment. But in looking for tbe club
they found a route more practicable and
more economical for the government than
"Then the original intention of tbe en
gineer department was not to locate tbe
canal on tbe south side of tbe river?''
"Most assuredly not. Tbe discovery
of the south route was purely accidental."
"Well, major, do you not think, that
had the engineers in charge of the sur
veys Dot experienced tbe difficulty they
did with property holders, that in dis
covering the deficiency of the water dis
charge tbe most likely course would
have been instead of following Rock
river below Turkey island, to have cut
across tbe plateau to the neighborhood
of tbe old distillery?
"Such a course would have been very
natural, and individually, it would have
pleased me very much."
Had the Union been fair enough to
publish tbe important part of the inter
view, it would have been obliged in
consistent as the morning paper is to
have omitted its own closing paragraph, but
it is so highly entertaining that The Ab
gcs will insert it for tbe amusement of
its readers. Read it, and then com p ire

the Union omits. It will do your sou

A afortifjlnx Aeeideat.
It is an old and oft proven adage,
that "accidents are liable to occur in the
best regulated households.'1 The asser
tion is apt to be verified at any time, and
any place except as a matter of course
in the Union office of this city, where as
we all know blunders never occur. Satur

one of these unforseea disasters, such as

and until he is weak. Through an error
which seems almost unaccountable, the
regular assortment of telegraphic
news was mislaid in the composing room,
and the matter of June 19, which had
not been properly disposed of, found its
way into the columns of the paper, in its
place, in the hutry of the make-up.
The blunder was one so uncommon and
unexpected that it was not discovered
until the entire issue was distributed, and
it was too late to remedy it.
The occurrence created a sensation
even to causing an euhq j&ke but tbe
mortification which it caused the pub
lisher was somewhat palliaed by the ap
parent fact that everybody ia town was
a reader of the paper.
The Old. Old stcorjr.
