Fear That it Kllieaey AVtll he Impaired
by Kvason oft lie Uovrrnuient Iam.
The Moline manufacturers are con
siderably worr ed for fear thai the
work now beii carried on bv the
government to deepen the channel of
the Mississippi may impair the water
power, upon which the man u fact tir
ing interests of that city have alw ays
placed such a dependence. The Dis
patch takes the following rather
gloomy view of the situation:
The work on the dam, extending
down the river from the wing dam
above the city, will end soon with
l.(ioi) feet, or near that, constructed.
The (piestion of what effect this dam
w ill have on the Moline water power
is a serious one. It is believed bv
those who are familiar with the sit
uation that wit lin two or three vears
the channel will lie tilled with "dirt,
and the situation here, so far as re
gards the water power, as lad as it
was before the channel was cut out
at all. As said in the Dispatch some
days since. Judge (iouhl and F. ".
(iould both believe that this result
will follow. Ii this opinion t'. II.

who have studied the river for vears
It is not a snail matter that the
water power is thus to be destroyed
It affects not o liv the factory owners
of Molinc. but also the "-overnment
works on the island. In fact. Molinc
can get along better without the
water power t lan the government.

eiiuipped with steam power fo'r
emergencies. Major Mackenzie does
not think the mprovement will in

the dam N so f ir above the pool that
it will not affect it. Judge liould is
of a different o union, and savs that
the constructi n of the Watertown
dam helped materially to increasi
t lie size of t he bar above them, and
that the pre-ent improvement has
already changed the location of 1 1 1 i

to stop this tongue lashing society.
Swish, bung, biff! Anyone in the
vicinity of Second avenue and Eighth

that locality, when some toughs con

But theymot with some lively up

Tne War Department Concedes a Location
For Such Purpooe. j
Rock Island, Sept. 24 Editor
Augl's: The United States war de
partment at Washington has granted
to the Western Seamen's Friend so- '
eiety the permanent occupancy of
the unused portion of the govern-!
ment pier at Chicago for the build
ing of a snug harbor station in eon-
nection with the Columbian snug'
harbor at the tri-cities. This strip
of unused pier is close to the Chicago
life-saving station, at the mouth of
the Chicago river, and is ample for
the establishment of a reception sta
tion for sailors from that district,'
and as the war department has
granted permission to enlarge this
portion of the pier, and this can be
done at a comparatively small cost,
it will be seen that this is a most de
sirable concession. The pier being
under government protection not
only adds value to the gift, but is an
endorsement from a source which all
efforts have been used to reach.

tri-cties to make an effort to retain
