Ia its issue cf Sjndny the Cnicago
Herald devotes considerable space to an
extended write up of ite progress of the
Bnn;piu caual in which it says:
The Hennepin canal is under full way

that has been made on it since work was

Karly Obiitaclfg Overcome.
No government enterprise ever bad
ciore obMadi s lo surmount than ibis
ne had. The difficulties centered in
1 3e last five miles. Ibo troublesome
toint was the passing of tbe rapids of
Hock river. There is a fall of 19 feet
from the guard lock to the mouth, as
t lapped, aid there is no way to pass
boats without locking On account of
the many water-power privileges owned
alonz tbe front of Milan the engineers
were compelled to setk a route on the
i orlh side of the north channel of
Hock river. Property owners there
hsked beavy damagts for right of way.
This caused Capt. L. L. Wheeler, en
,'ineer in charpe. to seek another route
when the last survey was made. He
crossed to the routh side and found a
tietter location than tbe north side of
fered. Bids on tbe work wire opened and
contracts awarded at tbe offloe of Capt.
Marshall in Chicago- The one for tbe
construction of lockpit 37 was approved
by tbe war department before tbe 8 hour
law went into operation; the others were
caught unapproved, and necessarily re
jectcd. It set med inevitable that Win
er would come before work could be
fairly opened, but with characteristic en
Try Capt. Marshall hastened the re
ceiving of new bids, contracts were let
ander them and in late midsummer work
was commenced. At this moment it is
A number of illustrations accompany
the article, among which are "A Sisetch of
r.he First Mile of the Canal." "Stable
Tent on Carr's Island," "The Camp on
Carr's Island." '.Black Hawk's Watch
Tower" and others. Then follows a min
ute description of the work in progress
and the surrounding country, together
with a review of the work since its be-r
ginning, and concludes with the follow
ing: Plan, and Appropriation.
The Hennepin canal takes its name
from the little town of Hennepin, situ
ated on the Illinois r Vc-r, in Putnam
county and just about midwHV between
ibis p'ace and Chicago.. The wesiern
terminus is at tbe mouth of Rock river
as it enters the Mississippi, and its east
ern terminus is at its entrance to tbe Illi
aois river, a little above the town just
mentioned. Tbe estimated cost of this
emiro work is $6 925 960 This esti
mate, it is thought, is ample unless
contingencies should arise. Tbe Hen
nepin is a part of the water route pro
jected to connect the Mississippi with
Lake Michigan. The approved plans
of tbe engineer corps contemplate a
water route from the lake to the Illinois
river at some day it is hoped some day
soon. When this is constructed the Hen
nepin will be half the route between tbe
river and lake. Tbe present Illinois and
Michigan canal would furnish such a
connection of the Illinois river with tbe
lake, but its .mall size does not render it
practicable. The siae of the barge used
would be limited to its capacity.
As for the Hennepin, there ia now
every reason to believe that the $500,000
first appropriated will cover the cost o
construction of this lower tection. which
bas been above described, including tbe
guard lock and the dams across Rock
river. Upon the completion of this sec
tion the water will be backed- up by these
dams so tbat at low water tbe Rock
river will be navigable seven foot stage
to Grfen river, and at high water to
Penny's slough. 2? miles from
tbe Mississippi. In all $100 J. 000 is
available, however, and tbe work will
adyance far enough in another summer to
make a great showing of the ui'.iiy and
importance of the canal

WORLD'S FAIR SOUVENIRS
How Ton Can Get One of the Columbian
Toe World's Fair s6avtnir coins are "go
ing like hot c-.kea,"Vnd those who want
to get one or more of (hem will haetobe
stir themselves or tbe will be too late.
The desire for one of these mementoes of
the Exposition seems to be almost as
universtl as is th inlet- at in the Exposi
tion itself, and orders for ibem have
been scfnt in from all prts or tbe United
States and also from foreign countries.
All of these souvenir coins, except five,
are being sold at a uniform price of one
dollar each. For the first coin struck off
$10,000 has already , been offered, and
various prices have been bid for the
400tb, 14923, 1892d and the last coin.
Desiring that these souvenirs bo distrib
uted as widely as possible among the peo-
le, and that all. Irrespective cf locality,
have an equal chance to obtain them, the
Exposition authorities have sought to
prevent syndicates and others from pur
asmg large quantities and thus "cor
nering" the sale. Oa tbe contrary, they
have arranged to supply banks, business
houses and individuals in all. parts of the
country with as many as they may desire
distribute among their patrons, custo
mers or friends They require only that
the orders must be for 51) coins, or some
multiple of 50, acd 'hat the order be ac
companied by the cash, at the rate of one
dollar for each coin. , A. great mai.y banks
and business firms have gindiy complied
ith these conditions and ordered each 50
to 20.000 of the coins.
Notwithstanding these conditions have
been widely published. still a vast number
of inquiries by letter have been received
at exposition headquarters asking how
the coins may be obtained. The best
way is to get them through local banks.all
of which are no doubt willing to accomi
mod ate in that way their patrons and tbe
residents of the city or town in which
they are doing business If, however,
for any reason it i desired to obtain
Ibem otherwise tbe proper method is to
form a ilab of subscribers for 50 coins,
or some multiple cf 50, and select some
one member of tbe club to distribute the
coins when received. Orders should be
addressed to A. F. Seeberger, treasurer

"Old Jed Froaty."
At the Burtis opera house at Daven
port on Thursday,; Nov. 10, Richard
Golden will again present bis delightful
and interesting story of New England vil
lage, "Old Jed Prouty." On his last
visit Mr. Golden established himself as a
popular favorite, and deservedly 86, for
his impersonation of the honest and
guileless old Yankee is as clean and re
freshing as the streams of the hills and
valleys of quaint old Maine. Tbe story
of Uncle Jed and his little waif is a nar
rative which seems almost real. It
points out the follies and evils of leading
an erring life and the benefits and advan
tages attending a straightforward acd
bonosable one. It ,is a moral and in
structive play and one which the younger
as well as the matured of every class
will be benefitted by seeing. There is an
exquisite blending of comedy and pathos
and a ripple of humor prevsdes the whole,
and at the same tim? marks out a simple
story which sustains its interest to the
close- . '
