Rapids and Other Matter
The January nunber of the Age of
Steel is deyoted almost entirely to a dis
cussion by many eminent men. of the
Mississippi nver.its tiibutaries and a deep
water harbor on the gu!f. Among the
most comprehensive papers was that of
Maj. Mackenzie of this city, in charge of
Mississippi river imr rovemcnts from the
Des Moiats rapids :o Minneapolis, who
from his lng famili irity and experience,
has come to be accepted as an authority
on the subject of -.he Mississippi river.
His paper, should be read bv every resi
dent of the Mississ nm vaJlev. and thpv
will then come to have a bettir knowK
edee of the subject of inland navigation.
and a higher !-.ppr ciation of the gncd
old river i'self, and of the work now be-
ing carried on, piece-meal it is true, by
he sjovernnifnt f( r its improvement.
No one can read Maj. Mackenzie's re
port without heartily endorsing every
effort made to secure larcre and reonhir
appropriatiocs for the completion of the
system of improvement.
Among points tasde by the mU v are
the following cxtructs:
THEltOCK ISLAM) HAI-ID3.
The most serious obstructions on the
upper Mississippi river in its unimproved
condition were tht Rock Island and Drs
Moines rapids.eaca having a fall ot about
JO feet in a distance of about 1.1 miles.
The removsl of these obstructions were
virtually com pie ed teven yews b'o.
The Rock Islbnd rapids, which consisted
of arteries of deep pools, sepirated by
chains of rocks, ( re improved by the
cutting of ch irni Is 20U feet wide and 4A
feet deep at kw watir, through the
chains. Furlhir improvements are still
being carried on and probably renter '
depth and incriused facilities will be
found nectssary at some future time.
The ietluer.ee if the Mississippi river
hss, and such iclluerce will materially in
crease as improvements progress, upon
freisht rates miht be taken as a measure
of its importance, of the amount of
freight carried ty rhiiroads at river rates,
as a result ol the competition, no figure
can be given, but it is known to be very
large during the season cf the year when
the navigation i f the river is practicable.
The amount if freight, including logs
and lumber, mc ved on the upper Missis
sippi during th-j yeur 1S90 was approxi
mtte'y 4,4i)0.K 0 tons. The largest item
of tonnage is that of Iocs and lumber in
the transportation of which there are em
ployed about one hundred steamboats.
These boa's supply logs to about seventy
four saw mills between St. Paul and St.
Louis, the operation of which mills repre
sents a capital of about $35,(J00,000, and
furnishes employment to many thousands
of men. There were manufactured at
poin's on the Mississippi between Min
neapolis and rt. Louis during the year
lS'JO 1.528,105.05)7 feet of lumber.
There passed through the draw of the
Winona bridge during the year 1890
5,417 steamboats. 1.045 barges and 2,123
rafts. Tbrojgh the Hannibal bridge
there passed 1.941 steamboats, 453 barges
and 500 rafts
THE LOW WATER DIFFICULTY LESSENED.
The improvements already carried out
on the Mississippi river between St. Paul
and the Des Moines rapids have removed
and prevented the reforming of many of
the sandbars which formerly were known
as the most serious obstructions. The
low water of 1804 has heretofore been
taken as the iatum, but in 1891 the riyar
reached a lowar stage than in 1864 at
many points; yet during the latter year
it was possible to run rafts of much
greater size and draft than in 1864. In
what is knovn as the Beef Slough por
tion of the river, that is, from the mouth
of the Chippewa river to and below Alma
in 1854 and later yeaH.the lightest drafts
boats navigated with the greatest difficul
ty, while in 1891, even during the lowest
stage of wa;er, the channel capacity and

region for the largest and deepest draft

THE GAME INSIDE

Rail at (he Armory Lat Sight.
The first game of indoor base ball be
tween Company B, I. N. G., of Daven
port, and the Rodman Rifles, of this city,
was played at Armory hall last night.
There was a large number of spectators
present, quite a sprinkling of ladies be
ing in attendance, who manifested con
siderable interest in the game. The
Company B nine was composed of L.
Muckle c. Frank Parade p, T. Dalzell,
captain, lb, E. R. Hassen 2b, A. R. Sa
vine ss, John Connors rs, B. Darling Is,
Frank Thompson 3b, and George
The positions for the R ties were filled
as follows: Will Johnson, captain andc,
E. M.Cook p, Charles Long Is, Hugh
McDonald r., Ernst Snyder 2b, Don
Shaw :b, George Flood ss, Robert John
son lb and L. Burch cs. It was a good
gnme for the price and was umpired by
Herman Detjens and Charles Ramskill.
The R.fles battery. Johnson and Cook,
did some good work, but it was plain to
be seen that they were doiug grand stand
playing aud anyone could tell that by
looking at the balcony. "Bob" Burch
is a hard worker, but he hasn't any re
gard for the state of Illinois when it
comes to base running, he just lays down
when about 20 feet from a base and plows
along like a 6'eamboHt, literally moping
up the floor with bis uniform.
Muckle of the Company B's, is a regu
lar ' Papa Anson" when the game gets
close, his whiskers bristle up, and he gets
hot around the collar, and when his boys
would have a little trouble in locating the
b'lll, it would pain a person to see the
loek of disgust that would come over his
face. Don Shaw is a hustler at base run
ning, but he would make a better ap
pearance and would no doubt have made
better time if he had used rubber boots
instead of the overshots be had on last
niuht. The game was enjoyed by
everyone and especially by Btm Limont,
whose shout of wild enthusiasm could be
heard cccisionally above the din. The
score at the close of the game stood 17 to
8 in favor of the Rifles.

The jury in the case of Charles llanlon
charged with burglary, this morning
found him guilty and fixed his punish
ment at one year in the penitentiary.
Frank Cabawlka pleaded guilty to ma
licious mischief in the circuit court this
morning and was sentenced by Judge
Glenn to one year in the penitentiary.
This afternoon the case of Rush Mc
Hugh, of Moline, charged with assault
with intent to murder, is being tried be
fore a jury compnaed of Peter Florin,
Edward Spivey, Oscar Anderson, A. J.
Schwartz, J. Long, Peter Frey, J. J
Stroehle, O S. Long, Henry Hanson,
John Swisher, William McCullough and
Samuel Swisher. State's Attorney Stur
geon is prosecuting, ard William McEn
iry and J. M. Beardsley appear for the
In con versing upon the penalty to be
suffered by Cabawlka and Johnson, who
have been sentenced to the penitentiary
for malicious mischief, Judge Glenn
stated to State's Attorney Sturgeon this
morning that tbey were the first cases in
the circuit wherein a penitentiary sen -tence
had been inflicted for malicious
mischief, and that the fact that there was
such a thing as being sent to the peniten
tiary for such acts as Cabawlka and
Johnson were guilty of might serve as a
valuable lesson. Both men, as will be
remembered, destroyed property for the
same purpose they flungfocbs through
plate glass windows for the mere purpose
of getting in jail for the winter but
they had no idea of going to the peniten
tiary for their mischief.
The case c f Wood B. Hill, held on
charges of attempt to murder and may
hem, will probably be taken up tomorrow
and gives promise of developing some
new sensational features.
A Nenttatinn In Town.
"The Vendetta" (the Italian for re
venge) arrived in town this morning over
the Burlington route with their awn 50
foot car of scenery. This attraction is
probably the heaviest in the matter of
scenic productions that has ever visited
Rock Island, acd Manager Varney, whs
is connected with theFrohman Exchange
of New York city, should receive suffi
cient encouragement to book more of his
big companies here. Since coming west
of Chicago the play and company have
been accorded royal receptiv- s in the
cities of Illinois and Iowa. The play is
said to be the moBt brilliant melo-drama
written since "The Two Orphans," and
containing enough sensation and comedy
to satisfy everybody. Mr. Whitecar
the star, is doing excellent work in the
trying role, Audis Abey, supported by
some of the best stock actors in the pro
fession. O the scenery much can be
said. The first scene shown is the fa
mous French prison at Toulon. An ex
plosion takes place and the walls are
blown to pieces. The ruins revolve in
full view ef the audience, and another
scene Is shown. This grand transforma
tion receives five and six curtain calls ev
ery nigbt. The next scene- represents
the celebrated gambling resWrt. "The Ca
sins," at Monte Carlo, and ie remarkably
beautiful. Then comes the sensation ef
the age, "The Collision at 8ea." This
scene cannot be described. The last act
shows the burning of Paris in 1870
