proximately speaking double up what we
h&ve been accustomed to having for the
upper river. The congress of '92 gave us
f .11)0.000. Two years before that we
had SG00.000 th is for the river from
St. Paul to the mabth of the Des Moines
river. This year 1 Bee we have $800,000
from the mouth of the Missouri to St. Paul,
which, taking out the part from the mouth
of the Des Moines, to the mouth of the
Missouri as we would apportion it 300.

only to werk mora systematically as we
could look ahead and properly estimate
our improvements with the allowances
forthcoming, and the river as a conse

short our improvements would be of a
more enduring character, and I am sure
would be more satisfactory to myself and

A KKW KINO OK BOAT.
The Mississippi River and Ocean Navi
gation company is a St. Louis concern
which controls tte pttents on the Lucas
adjustable or drop keel boat. The Lucas
boat is designed to navigate in both shal
low and deep wa.ers. As described by
the inventor this new idea In ship-building
consists essentially of an adjustable
or drep keel. When in actual use the
drop keel is suspended and made to as
cend between the two hulls. The upper
part of the drop keel is held firmly in
place by strong t teel traces constructed
along the entire length of the inner sides
of the two hulls. The mechanism for
raising and lowering this keel will be
mounted in contection with the engine
ahafi of the vessel. The keel may be
lowered at will any distance equal to the
double immersioQ of the ship. From the
bow to a po'i.t over the forward end
of the drop keel the ship is to be
built solid witt water tight compirt
mcnts. From this point to the stern,
in order to adm t of the free working
of the keel, the hull will be built in two
parts. Twin screws, one in each of the
hulls will propel the boat. The engine
and machinery tbroughout will be of spe
cial design and mbody a number of the
inventor's original ideas. The use of the
keel is this: Waen navigating a river,
where a light drift is essential, the keel
will be raised: when the ship has to
weather high rolling seas, all rtq iired
stability is secured by its immersion.
With the movable keel down to its full
extent the ship will have all the steadi
ness of vessels of the deepest draught.
The Lucas ship is designed for trade
between the Mississippi valley and the
republics of South America. It will
transfer our farm and factory products
direct to the sc uthern continent and in
return deliver its coffee, rubber, fruits
and other exports to the docks aloDg the
Mississippi. Thus the great bulk of the
trade of the SDUth American countries
which now goes to Europe will be diverted
to the United States where it naturally
The flrstlvessel of this type will be
built by the Iowa Iron works of Du
buque. The work of construction will
be completed in the spricg of 1S93 when
the water will b3 high enough to admit
of her reaching St. Louis. This vessel
will be called the "St. Liuis" and will
cost $200,000. She will be about 300
feet long and 34 to 33 feet beam, and will
be built entirely of steel. She will have
a displacement of 3.200 tons, three times
that of the Pittsburgh of the Diamond
Ja line, the largest steamer running be
tween St. Louifr and St Paul. She will
carry the weight of 00,000 bushels of
wheat on five fietof water.
The St. Louii will have a single bow.
Aft she will be twinned. She will have
two separate stuns, each carrjirg a rud
der and screw. There will be a triple ex
pansion engine for each screw, so that if
one becomes disabled half the power at
least will remain.

In an appendix to her "Life of Jane
Welsh Carlyle." .Mrs. Alexander Ireland
gives Mr. John Swiutou's account of an
interview with the sexton of Haddington
regarding a visit of Carlyle to his wife's
grave. The graphic and affecting report of
what the attendant functionary saw on the
ocjision isa powerful testimony not only to
Carlyle's deep sorrow, but to the gift of
sympathetic and picturesque delineation
possessed by the narrator himself.
As I once interviewed probably the same
official the result of my inquiries may here
be set down as complimentary to the epi
sode given by Mrs. Ireland. After show
ing a reasonable amount of interest in the
tombs of John Brown, the Biblical com
mentator, and other local celebrities I in
troduced the subject of .Mrs. Carlyle's
burial place nnd was conducted toward the
inclosure. "Carlyle," I said as we slowly
advanced, "would, of course, come in his
latter years to visit his wife's graver"
"Oh, yes," was the laconic reply.
"And you would have some talk with
him. no doubt., as he passed to and fro?"
"Ay," quoth the observant guide with
grave significance of tone; "an a gey soor
tyke he was." This was at once so con

mit.ep. Yesterday proved a sort of red letttr
day for stock subscriptions in the Colum
bian exposition. Added to the practically
voluntary subscription of Fred IIes in
the morniog for $203 in the enterprise,
and the promise of doubling it if neces
sary, came in the afternoon a promise of
1.000 from Weyerhaustr & Denkmann,
which swells the aggregate of local tub
scripiions to $30,000, leaving $20,000 yet
to raise, and in this amount those in
charge of the soliciting committees are
anxious to make a big hole this week.
To accomplish this there must be a great
deal of work done. There is probably
no solictor in Rock Island's force who has
not already done something far the cause
and has determined fully to do more but
many are putting It off. Now is theiime
for action more than ever before. Let
this week's work count. Let no effott
be lost or deferred by any committeeman
to- do his full share. The stock can he
secured if subscriptions are solic'tid
properly. Many of those who were the
first to subscribe have expressed willing
ness to raise their amounts. Others first
disinclined to become interested in the
project have determined to do so. The
stock will all be placed, there is no pos
sibility of doubt about it, but it should
be done at once. It can just as well be
accomplished now, why not get it done?

special effort. It is believed they will do
