The Curl v Inquest There was some interesting testimony before the coroner's jury in the imprest held upou the accidental death of Mrs, Mary Carley, of this city, at Moline yea terday. iliiam G. Kulieiis vfas the ltrsl witness sworn, I Ik was engiiur on en gine No, l(J5,tlic loconiolive which struck Mrs. Curlcy on Tuesday forenoon, lie has been employed on the Uock Island road for twenty fo::r years. At the time of the acciilc.it his train was running sev en to eiyht miles an hour, as near as he could judge, lie didn't see the woman until after she had been struck, although the fireman had cat fed liU attention, Bay iug: "We are going to strike a woman As lie turned hu saw the woman being thrown into the diLch on the right side It happened on a crossing. I he bell was ringing by steam. There were no other Indus near at Ihc lime. Track was clear on his side of tiie e:i"iuc. lie shut off steam and applied brakes the moment the 11 rem an spoke and the train stopped in about four car lengths. Hacked up and saw the lady in the ditch. Got off engine and assisted in picking her up; she was alive but unconscious. She was taker to the station on the baggage ear plat form on a stretcher. Near "oy was found a small tin pail, which had uppir ently contained beer, and the pail iiad been wrapped in paper. Left her in charge of station Hgeut at the depot, He- side at Chicago. Mrs. Eva B. timet testi lied: 1 live in Moline, near the crossing where the accident occurred; my age h 23. I did not know Mrs. Curlcy bat had seen her frequently at church. I saw her Tuesday morning about 25 minutes after H) o'clock. She was between the trucks and going south. There were two trains, one iroing towaid Hock Island and the passenger going east. One was a freight. The freight train had not passed, She was walking between the two trains, The freight was ou the north track. She stepped ever the first track in frout of the freight and was thrown before the freight had entirely passed. I heard the hell ringing on both engines. Trains run so fast at that place that a person can hardly cross, though seeing them come us far as one can see. The train could not have been stopped when she stepped ou the track. I was standing in the kitchen duor, about 150 feet from the tracks. Had Mrs. Curlcy looked up she could have seen the passenger I nun comin; From the verdict of the jury which was yiven in yesterday's Aituus, it is evident that the intention was neither to blame or exonerate the railroad company, leav ing the matter of bringing a damage suit with Mr. Larkin, if he is so disposed. Mr. Laikiu informed an Aiious re. porter this afternoon that he would prob ably bring Miit against the road for S5,(KK.

Sound U Tomtom True to the statement made in the Aroits the other day, word comes from the seat of power iu Washington that two fourth class postotllees have been changed in Hock Island county.

The Time for Local Action Hoi b Isl and hs it was, and Should he Ma, jleujutiril Inter viewed. ''Have you a minute to spare? If yoa-f have just come with me, for I have some thing interesting to show you." The speaker was one of the most prom inent and influential citizens of Hock Isl and, and whose name has always been associated with any, and every project looking to the betterment of the city, and community, and the aoc.o-.ted, a reporter for the Daily Aruits. The latter replied in the negative, and i ccompanying the citizen, was escorted down to the river bank, arriving there the gentleman continued: "Now could a more encour aging pictuie be found than that; could there be more emohatic attestation of a city's growth and position in the ranks of imlustiy and prosperity than that?" And sure enough it was a pretty sight. At the Diamond Jo wharf lay the Sidney, at the other landing the St. Paul, a little further down the Hock Island and Clinton daily packet Lilly Turner, at the ferry dock the J. W. Spencer, while up toward the coal bins of the Coal Valley Mining company was a rati boat loading with fuel, besides a nnmber of local tugs am, towbnats, making in nil seven or eijdit crafts. "It is indeed a pretty sight," replied the scribe," but this is not a common occur rence, it is more of a coincidence tlimi an every day spectacle." "True enough, it Is not an every day occuireuce, but it was.at one tune. 1 wens ty years ago, and longer, when tlics towns weie yet iu their infancy; before the days when the railroad interests were the first consideration in this land; v.hen natural water courses were used for the purposes for which they were made by the Creator of the universe, such a pleasant sight as this, might be daily seeu. liut the railroads came, and al though they quickened transportation they did not cheapen tt worth a cent have bet n here right along, and know what. Iam talking about, but I did not bring you down here, to make a speech to you away oft where nobody else could hear it I simple wanted to show you what there has been, and what there might be again." ' To what have you reference? put in the scribe, knowing however, what was coming, but being desirous of bringii the 8iihjcct about immediately. "I can explain myself in two words 'Hennepin Canal' but don't intend to slop at that, you don't get rid of me so easily, when I get to talking about that measure 1 don't stop soon, and 1 believe if there Were others like me, but given with moie eloqueuce than I have, we would stand a belter show of getting that canal . If we had thai canal, our levee would be lined with boats constantly. I tell you people have no idea of the amount of good that pro jectwill do this town. It will make a city out of it, and a big one, too, and if our citizens uru not alive to action, it will b deliberate suicide on their part. Congress meets again iu December, and one of the first and most important matters to be brought up is the Hennepin canal. It will have its friends there ami its enemies emphasize that last word, please, if you are going to make on item of what 1 am saying it will have UmMvinirH there, and is iu order to succeed iu gelling the meas ure through so that there will be no lonp hole of escape, its friends must be iu the majority. I noticed in the proceedings of the last council (reeling that a motion had been introduced authorizing the mayor to appoint three delegates to rep. resent the city down there the capital city during the early pail of the session, and to look after the canal's interest during the time the Hiver and Harbor bill is under discussion. That's business; that's move in the right direction, but the next thing is to get the right kind of men, you can empasi.e that too if you wish. Get the kind of men, who will not go ilowu there in a junketing tour but who will go tor business, aud to work. The mayor should uppolut such men, when the time comes. understand Maj. Heardslcy is to be one of them, and a good man be will make; he has a vast amount of influence with a committee us well as a convention. Get two other good men, and get them down to Washington to 'light it out on this line if it takes ail winter' and they will commence digging the Ilenuenin Canal in the spring. It time for ' local , action this important matter now Arouse the people, tell them to tm up and doing. Let us not sleep when we should be al work. If the proper art ion is taken this winter the Hennepin in assured, and our levees will always look, as Ihey do at this moment." Jti5tthen the A lima man heard of au other item, and after excusing himself to his interesting aud intelligent companion started off iu pursuit of it. MAJ, HEN VII AHO INTKRVIBWEO. Major W. II. II. Henyuird, United States civil engineer, who has directed the expenditures of the appropriation of flu, 000 in making the latest surveys for the Hennepin canal, spent last night at the Harper house, but he was olT up the coun try on n persouel observation trio in such a hurry this morning that an Aunts reporter did not have an opportunity of iu terviewing him. A representative of the Daven,vori lh'mo erat accompanied the major from Chicago, Wednesday. Iu reply to an interrogation from the newspaper mau, Major Ben yuanl said: A surveying party was put in the field," continued Major Beuyuard, on the 20lh of September with the ins tention,of running a Hue north of Green river so as to strike Hock river in the vi cinity of Penny slough, and then purvey Hock river from that poir.t to Hot k Isl and. This would avoid I ho engineering difficulties met with by crossing all the streani3 that run into Ureeu river on the south side. There will be oo trouble of this kind on the north side. Instead of using au excavation channel for a canal we utilize a considerable portion of Hot k river. This reilly improves tint sir. mm, reduces the expense, and will be a great deal belter line for either Hock Island or Waterlown. " The major stated in the course of a protruded conversation that uo resurvpys w ilt he made of the other routes, and that the present work is all field work. Ttie expense involved he does nut think will equal the $8,000 which Is placed at bis service. The major is very anxious to complete his report as Boon as possible in order that it may be ready for considera tion by congress when that body meets some two months hence. On one important point Major Ben yaurdhas been misrepresented by the press and that is respecting bis own views in relation lo the canal As an ofs fleer his duty was to obey instructions simply and to furnish the information asked for. This had nothing lo do with the commercial value of the completed canal or the arguments bearing upon it. This interesting feature was exhaustively treated by Mr. Edward Hussell, of Daveu port, secretary of the Michigan and Mis sissippi canal commission. These force ful and elaborated reasons of Mr . Hussell were embodied iu the official report of Mnjor Benyaurd. When aked for his own view, the engineer's response w.s us prompt as it is candid slid unequivocal "1 have always been decidedly in favor of the Hennepin cunal." Duriug bis stiiy of three or four days in Ibis locality Major B. will improve the opportunity of personal I v g"ing over portions of the Hock river survey which was made late in the fall when the con dilions were unfavorable. Cnrlit an Worker!- V. M. C. A. 8TATK CONVENTION . The Young Men's Christian association for Iowa is assembled in their sixteenth annual delegate convention in Library hall at Davenport. The principal fea tore of yesterday's session was the read ing of the state treasurer's report show ing.the receipts from thirty-five town and college associations, aggregating $ 31)5.1)0 from Sabbath schools, $13; from iudivid uals, $1,030.85, while the sum of $1)00 was borrowed on notes, and 50 was received from collections al the state con venlion total, $2,3(18.25.
