The Former Roc-k Islander Kzplres at
Wichita The Faneral Here Tuesday.
The sad news came t the ci'y th's af

prominent merchant and highly respected
citizen of Ruck Island.
The rem si us are to be brought back to
Rock Inland for interment, tbe funeral
occur-in? from the Broadway Presbyter
ian church Tuesday morning.
Mr. 8teel was of Scotch birth and lo
oted in this city in 1855. Re encaged
in the hardware usioess with 'John Har
per, afterward selling out and poing to
Denver. Coio., where he eneraged in the
8tmo business. He came back to this
city and again established himself in the
same line of business, which he contin
utd to conduct until about eight years
ago, when he sold out and removed to
Wichita. Kan. He was about 70 years
of age and leives a daughter married, and
three sous, Ueorte and William or Wich
ita, and Charles A of Davenport.
The Trt City League.
The directors of the Tri-City Improves
mniL ague net in the rooms of the
Citizen's Improvement association in tbe
Mitchell & Lynde buldiog. pursuant to
adj mrnirent yesterday afterni-on.
The obj-ctof the work was to choose
officers aiid star', the work so that it can
be carried on as rapidly at possible. C.
H. Deere, of Moline, was stlecttd as
president and Frunk W-Mueller, of Dtv
enport, as secretary. Committees were
then appointed, consisting of the mem
bers from each city to impress upon the
respective city councils the necessity of
prompt action and also to lay bufor
them the plans f ir a j jint action in s E
curing a topographical mip of the vicinity
to be used at the World's Fir in
advertising the community. 8 F. Smith,
of Davenport, was authorized to prepare
articles of incorporation for the league.
The shares were reduced from $100 to
$25 each, aud the secretary was instruct
ed to report the action to the various
Business Men's associations interested in
the leagoe tul request them to appoint
committees to solicit the necessnry sub
scriptions. A journment was then tnken
subject to the secretary's call.
It can be readily seen that if the m'ips,
etc., are finished by My, when the open
ing of the f-iir occurs, it will be necessary
to have prompt action. Tbe project has
n.vw been fairly started and should be
rushed along with all possible speed.

M?j. Mackenzie is busily engaged to
day, superintending the packing' and
shipping of the contributions of his office
to the World's Fair at Chicago. These
promise to be among the most interesting
and un q le in the government co'lection,
atd the chief beauty which attaches to
them is, they afford a practical view of
the work done by Maj Mackenzie's
corps of engineers on the Mississippi and
tbe benefits wrought to navigation and
inland water commerce. Tbe exhibits
forwnrd.'d by the office here, consist of
pictures, charts, nps and diagrams, to
gether with two realistic reproductions
of a section of the river channel 'near
P.ne Bend, Minn. These exhibits are of
dimensions of 45 by 20 inches, aad were
designed and constructed by Engineer
Bosse. They are exact reproductions from
surveys, the scale being one i ich to 200
feet hoiizontttlly and one inch to 10 feet
yerlically. By means of wire and pieces
of sponge properly arranged and colored,
2,000 trees are shown iu the two ex
hibits. Practical Illustrations.
These two reproductions t-ffer a com
prehensive idea of the system of river
improvements as now carried out by the
government. The section of the river
taken for example was formerly one of
the worst and most difficult of navigation
on tbe entire stream. The twa exhibits
show tbe condition of tre stream before
and after improvemen's in a manner e
tirelytrue to nature, representing tbe
bluffs, islands, tbe crocked channel orig
inally, and tbe improvement shown by
the dams which divert the water flow,
the policy of the engineering department
to fill up between the d ms and give
the river a new and straighter channel,
while the nature of the dams and shore
protection is shewn in a manner to be
readily unr'ers'ood. Mr. B sse has
worktd three months on tbe deeigns.acd
they are in themselves examples of bis
ability, skill and accuracy.
Three similar dei-igns have teen pre
pared at Keokuk from views about the
Des Moines R ipida canal, one ah iwing
the head of the dry dork gates, with the
filling and emptying arrangements, an
other the method of constructing the
dams and shore protection and the third
tbe various tyoes of dams in use.

M .j. Mackenzie received Ih s morning
