ker was cnnsrhtulated and told to come

a party of Ruck Island and Davenport
pentli tiien to visit the scene of operations
f n the Ilenncpiu canal and the watch

txpediiiOQ layover the ttock Island &

ue?t. President Louderbaek took charge
( f the train service, and on reaching the

placed at the disposal of the party, which
was composed of President Jackson, of
the Rock Island Citizens' Improvement
association, R. Crampton, J. E. Mont

Ddvenport; W. C. Wadsworth, J. J.

Capt. B-ker's itinerary look the party
ilirect to Milan. Capt. L L. Wheeler's
i'.iurte:s were the first scene of attack and
Hie c ptaiD taken by storm. He was in
the nii'.!st of some important correspond
ence but he was at the disposal of the
victors it once. With the assistance of
Howard McCulloch, Dr. Matthews and
lii v. J. II. Kerr, he entertained the vis
iters with maps, diagrams and sketches
of the work so far accomplibhed about
.he mouth of Hennepin.
WHAT IS NOW VNDEIl W'.Y
and what it is propose.l to do this sum
oner. To the members of the press the
-saptai.-: chatted entirtaininel?. High
water bad interfered with the work. A
largo part of the adopted right of way is
under water, as a consequence of which
there has been much delay in sinking
posts and erecting fences alorjg the route
of the canal. By July 1 the captain
hoped to have the contract p;ae:d for
the first three miles of actual construc-
! tion. Alrif.dv a consicicraDic part oi me
riuht of way has been cleaned of under
brush atd trees, and to accomplish the
removal of many of the trees dynumite
has been used successfully. The captain
regretted that he could not give the par
ty an cxhibitioj of blowing up a stump,
but the gtound was too dam to do it suc
cessfully. Five milts from the Mississippi
i a guard lock will be placed, which with
j another five miles further back.will insure
slsck water for eight miles in Rock river
of sufficient depth for boats and render
the work of canal building for that dis
tance quite simple. Io the first five
miles from the Mississippi the river wjh
be utilized some and Clear Lake, a body
of water half a mile long, will render ex
cavation unnecessary for that distance.
Capt. Wheeler and hia assistant then
took the party oyer part of the route
of the canal explaining where it would
be established and the work to be done
this year. The captain is thoroughly
familiar with every detail of the work
assigned to bis charge and his explan
ations proved very instructive and
TO THE TOWEU.
The party then boarded its special
car ana was conveyea uaca. m me iuwci
tirely complete the people of Sonth
Rock Island will wonder how in the
naice of all that is wonderful their high
way commissioners ever objected for a
moment to the change. The street rail
way company has not only taken good
care in the establishment of the new sec
tional road, but has caused the old north
and south highway to cross the company's
right of wsy cut by means of a substan
tial bridge, a much better one than was
contemplated in the agreement with the
South Rock Islacd commissioners.
The proposed depot grounds and other
contemplated improvements in the vicin
ity of the approach to the grounds were
explained by Messrs. Louderbaek and
Sheriff and then the excursionists were
shown through the main pavilion, which
is rapidly nearing completion, under the
contract with John Yolk and under the
supervision of Foreman Shorey. Mr.
Louderbaek is doing all he can to hurry
alorg the contract. The building is just
what was needed to make the tower tn
IDEAL SUMMER RESORT.
From its upper windows one may ob
tain a view unsurpassed anywhere in this
country, we believe, for its grandeur, af
fording as it does a surprise even to peo
ple whose eyes are accustomed to feasting
upon the scene of which nature alone is
the artist. The pavilion which is being
constructed from the designs of Archi
tect Hammatt heretofore described, is an
other evidence of the public spirit of the
street railway syndicate, and the conn
dence of the men composing it in ibis
community. It will not be surprising i
at some future day beautiful Chautauqua
grounds surround the tower.
The party also inspected the plant of
the Rockford Construction company at
Sears and was courteously shown through
the industry and the process of manufac
ture of the Rock Island paving brick.
When the party was about to start
back an employe of the company was for
attaching a number of coal fiat cars that
were to be brought in to the barns, but
President Louderbaek jocularly repri
manded his subordinate for suggesting
such a proposition. Half wav in however,
the motor overtook the trailer meuiioncd
elsewhere, which hal been dumped, and
all hands put in half an hour rightiog it.
The excursionists forgot all about tLe
previous reflection which had been cast
upon their dignity, in the suggestion that
a couple of coal cars be attached to their
special, and all gave their muscles a 10
year test. The car was in due time
placed on the rails. Of course everjbody
in the crowd was a boss of the job but
Electricai Engineer Fredericks and Mr.
Sheriff and otter attaches of the company
did the most of the lifting.
On the way in a vote of thanks was
tendered Capt. Baker and Pi-esidttnt
Louderbaek, and the latter heartily re
sponded in expressing his appreciation
of the service rendered him in getting his
car on the track. The men of the press
accepted Manager Montrose's invitation
to take supper at the Harper and thus
ended an exceedingly enjoyable and quite
Ciiae to Aurora. Rock Island-Moline

Testerday, as said before, the first trip

improvement over the original route.

deed he has made a tri
umph in engineering skill,
