I'risa tn His Contest With Atkin
son. Milan has at least one lucky citizen in
Tom Laflin, although his good fortune,
as after shown, may be attributed to a
great extent to skill. The second shoot
for big money between Tom Laflin of
Milan and Harry Atkinson of Moline
took place on the grounds of tbe Fores
ter Gun club in Davenport yesterday aft
ernoon. It was a rather hot and sultrv
day for the spectators who planted them
selves on the open field and a good many
contented themselves with seats a little
further back on the porch of the club
The contestants had declared their per
fect willingness to make the match for
$500 a side when they first spoke of it
after their preyious contest, and bad put
up a good substantial forfeit of $100
apiece. The amount looked a little big
ger yesterday, however, and bo they
agreed to call it $250 apiece and this
amount, a cool $500 pot, was placed in
J. F. Kroy's hands before the match was
shot. He turned it over to Laflin after
the contest, together with the gate re
ceipts, a neat little cum, but with the
price of the birds deducted. Tbe con
test was at 100 birds per man, unknown
traps, at 28 yards with five traps in use.
Laflin's total was 84; Atkinson's 79.
Work on the Canal:
Word was received by the Davenport
Democrat last night from Washington
that Capt. Marshall, of the engineer
corps of the army had sent to the war
department his report on the works on
the Illinois and Mississippi, or Hennepin
canal. Tte report deals with the history
of the proposed canal, and shows the
work eo far done toward obtaining right
of way. etc. The funds on hand, says
the report, will be applied to the pay
ment of expenses connected with the le
gal proceedings in acquiring the right of
way around thu lower rapids of Rtck
river near its moutb, and to purchasing
the necessary plant to construct works of
navigation in the vicinity of the rapids.
The funds required for the fiscal year
1894 will be applied, if appropriated, to
definite location of canal on the ap
proved route, to fixing land marks, to
determining legal description of lands re
quired for right of way, payment for
such lands and toward construction of
canal banks and works of navigation
along tbe line as far as may be deter
The report on the improvement of the
Illinois river, by Captain v Marshall, was
also received at the department Monday.
His proposition is for a through route of
transportation by water from the south
ern end of Lake Michigan to the Mississ
ippi river of sufficient capacity for its
navigation by tbe large class of Mississ
ippi river s.eamboats that can reach the
mouth of Illinois river. The funds asked
for will be used to complete the dam at
Eampaville lock and to dredge the river
between the lock and the Mississippi river,
and as far as practicable, the pools cre
ated by dams at LG range and Kamps-ville.

clubs would concent to have the schedule
end then. Joliet kept her part of tbe
agreement and lost over $ 1,000. Sae
notified President Kent and myself Aug.
14 that she had complied with her ptit
of the agreement and would now quit as
per arrangement. The report sent out
that Joliet did not comply with require
ments is false, as they have paid all dues
and received back the $500 check depos
ited at the beginning of the season, the
same as bad been done with the other
clubs that have paid up all dues, fines,
