'"The ji-ci is i imuie tor aged and
permanency disabled sailors and boat

such an institution and the great benefit
that would Bccue if estah'ished. I have
no doubt. The county poor house only
supplements the county provision for the

not to be thought of for the card in old
ae and during permanent physical disa

of this calling, of the public servants of
the commerce of the nation. It is a fct
also, that homes of t' e aged are few, and
where they do exist are limi'ed and local,
or connected with some one religious
body. There is even less provisi n for
the wholly or partially disabled, who
have not attained old age.

"The vicinity of 'he Tri-Cities is gen
erallv acknowledged to be most advanta

to receive inmutes from the Ohio, Missis

of the splendid philanthropy of one man

Sikh an income from en .
down-.ent of $400,000 pr an

Of this $20,000 for thf purehasp of real

During the time occupied in this effort
tlie movement will be formulated and
carried out to endeavor to obtain and in
providing other buildings, and for main
tenance of the home when establishe !,
from the government licence fund that our
boatmen are so much interested in."
The Inlitntl I'lmu.
The plan of the Seamen's Friend Socie
ty in establishing work of this magni'ude,
is to raise through agencies of its own
sufficient funds to acquire real estate and
a commencement of improvement of the

local trust on conditions that will insure
perpetuity of work, and fprevent aliena

This'course will doubtless be taken in the
present case; but while consulting with
ourcl.iz ns and laving the foundation
for local presentation, Mr. Frankland
will endeavor to organize a provisional

counsel and backing locally to the move

The Business Men's associations and

TO BRIDGE THE ROCK.
Th Committee Vllt to the Lower End
The bridge project committee Hnpotnt
ed by the Citizens' Ioipr . vemen; associa
tion, excepting J. T. Kenwortbv und W.
I' B Ferguson, who were uuatih- to go
a'ong. visited the lower end o! thu county
, yesterday, ami after in ik'Dt; a thorough
examination of the mailer, wmo bck
last i veni'i; entbusi-isncaily iu fvor of
pushing the matter. They spent the
dy in driving about and met many of
the farmers of that section, who are
heartily iu favor of ih:s propos- d plan.
The'seheme which ;eeius to be most feas
ible is to boulevard one of the avenuf'S
running out of tne city down to the Mis
sissippi, which would be followe l, and
then bridge Rock river at Lick N '. 1 of
the Henneoin ca'ial, across B g Ii'and to
Turkey Hollow, where the Anda'usii
rod would be struck.
The people from the vicinity of the
latter place would no do'i'H build a good
road to meet it.which wou'd opn uo the
entire lower end of the county and a
part of Mercer. It Is es-imaitd that the
route for a large number of farmers io
that portion of the county would b
shortened from four to eight miles. It
will readily be seen that the benefit that
would accrue to this city from an estab
lished road of this kind would be enor
uiO'ja. What it is thought hy most of
the gentlemen who are infres'.ing them
selves io this laudaole proj ci is that the
road should be hih enough to evade any
chance of being ovoifl i wed during high
water. Should this be done it wou:d
redeem hundreds of acres of land that are
now practically worthless. Tiiis would
necessitate a fl'l of eitrut f;et in some
places for q ute a distance, auil the cost
of course, would be considerable, but the
returns would greatly exceed the outlay
in a short time.
Will R Johnson, one of the committee,
who was over the rout--, this morning
expressed himself as heartily in favor ol
immediate action. "I toink the proj .-at
a feasible one." said Mr. Johnson, "and
from the conversations we had with a
large number of f -rmers in lhat vicinity,
I am quite sure they would lend their
henrty co-operali-m "
R Crampton. who was also one of the
party, is an enthusiast of the scheme,
and thinks that with a proper flirt it
could be carried out successfullv. L has
been suggested that if the Citizens' Iin
provement association would provide for
a survey for the proposed route it woi:ld
greatly facilitate matters.

but probably has not long to wait, A
letter has just been received by the
county attorney from Vancouver, Wash

that place and sig"c d "Ella Camd de" in

by her, and that she verily bi lieves that
she was duped in the same manner the

this man. Ella Cntudalu tvidently be
litvos that the certificate she ho'd-i.eigoed
by Rtv M. E Stone as officiating clergy
man, as was the Ds.vecport certificate,
is similar to the certificate, given the
young h.d f whom Canedale duped here,

traveling with him and helping him to
work his miserable schemes upon sus

suggested that Cansdale has been marry
