ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1886. PROVIDING FOR PUPILS. A Stew High Nrhool Bulldlnc-What the Board f Education Nhonld and Will Do. Since the proceedings of Tuesday evening's meeting of the board of educa tion became public, there has been a good deal of speculation as to whether or not a new high school building would be built, as talked of, and if so, what it would be like, how much it would cost, and where it would be situated. The board, of court, has not jet adopted any plans, but public sentiment seems to favor a twostory brick structure, about seventy feet square with basement. From $15,000 to $18,000 would be ade quate to erect such a building, make It substantial and modern in its construc tion, aud conveniences. The location will probably be on ttie lot occupied by building No, 4. the gar ret of which has been used fur years foi high school purposes. There is roou. enough for it there without discommod ing the present building, and under such circumstances Principal Hatch might re main at the head of both schools, as he is now. The ancient structuro n ow used for both high school anil lower ynvlu pupils was built wny back in 1857, and no one of the present xeneratifin knows whit it was instructed for. It is a clumsy cumber some, ill-dcvsied inslitulion a disgrace and an eye sure to the city If it were not as U'.'ly us it H a cyclone would have 6truck it lonu ago for it towers up above all other earthly ob ject It is in the bunds of the who l aiiMiorili though, aud consequently must be put to the best use possible. The prospect of a new high school buildiug will be hailed with delight by patrons of our public school system, to whom our present stiuc'.ure has been a source of drcid and anxie'.y all these years. The Rare at ttenetteo. Yesterdny was the big day at Oeneseo races. Tha entry of RMman's Patti P. in the 2:34 class and Swanson's Sport of Moline in the 2:35 class naturally arous ed local interest and though neither horses gained particular distinction the friends of both were their to applaud their efforts. Wednesday's unfinished three quarter mile run for a purse of 1 50 was finished. Swipes taking first money, Broker second, aod Hyderabad third. In the 3:34 trot, purse $300. Billie White won first money. Marvel second, and Monitor third. In the 2:33 pace, purse 8300, Charm catitured lirst money and Starry West second III the one mile run, purse $230.

Ueputy Sheriff Silvis, seeing the notice of Supervisor Norton's horse in Wednes day evening's Arm's, decided to look the animal over, and as a result he now owns him. Norton did not let the horse go without a sigh, although he received $500 for him. "Sharp" has been looking for an animal that could throw the dun iu the eyes of other roadsters for some time, and now that he has one, be will make it lively for any prestimptuus steed. His will be a good horse to get af ter criminals. 111. Kev. R. O. Pearce is recovering from his attack of erysipelas. Ex-Mayor E. P. Reynolds is quite ill at his mansion on Moline avenue.

There will be three more per formanccs tonight, tomorrow atternoou and evening with a change of pro gramme each time. Obituary.

The supervisors and their friends who visited the county poor farm, were royally entertained by Steward and Mrs Robert son, and the day was spent pleasantly by all. Deputy County Clerk Cooks sang several happy airs, Supervisor Charles Engel recited some poetry, and old Jor- don Uray, the bootblack, who isau insane inmate, sang a few pieces. The Institute. The annual teacher-' institute of Rock Island county opens in the high sciiool buildiug iu this city next Monday after noon. It will lie couducted by County Superintendent Southwell, assisted by an able cors of instructors.

The Rock Island county Veterans' as- niRitnn hn decided UDon a reunion to be held in this city, September 13 aud 14. At a meeting of Buford Post to make arranirementa. Col. D. O. Reid was elect ed, presiding officer of the occasion, and Thomas Campbell quartermaster, each THE CANAL. Oplnloaa of Chlraso Papers on the Passaic or the Amendment In the Senate. The Chicago Timet, in Bpeaking of the senate action in adding the Hennepin canal amendment to the river aud harbor bill, says. Perhaps the strongest testimony to the merit of the project was afforded by the course of the individuals who are popu larly understood to represent the interests, of the great railroad corporations in the senate. Such men as Ingalls, Sherman, Plumb and Edmunds were active in their opposition, and spared no effort to defeat the amendment. The Missouri senators fought it because they are possessed of the idea that the canal, if constructed, will injure the interests of St. Louis. This idea has taken deep lodgmeut in the St Louis mind, but. as Senator Allison showed yesterday, it is a fallacious one. It arises chiefly from the habit which the jealous Si- Louisans have formed of look ing upon everything that is beneficial to Chicago as necessirily detrimental to their city, out this is a narrow and mis taken view, and the opposition of St. Louis to the canal project is short-sighted and stupiJ. The benefits that would flow from the construction and mainten ance of the canal would not be confined to any locality, but would be diffused pretty equitably throughout the country Chicago would share them, of course, but so would St. Louis, and her fierce antag onism to the scheme has no basis in rea son or common sense. The action of the senate of course af fords no guarantee that the appropriation will be finally carried. The fate of the amendment in the house is somewhat problematical, although the indications point to favorable action bv that bodv. The real danger point is at the white bouse. There is decidedly a probability, rendered stronger by recent actions of the president, that he will veto the liver and harbor bill. The measure contains so many extravagant and utterly indefeasi ble appropriations, aud is so heavily laden with jobs of various degrees of in iquity, and it is quite likely the president will feel constrained to disapprove it, notwithstanding its meritorious features. Its passage over a veto is not to be an ticipated. If an appropriation for the Hennepin canal could be provided in a separate measure, there is no reason to doubt that it would receive the assent of the executive. If the project is finally killed, therefore, it will have to be at tributed to the bad company in which it is travel iu. While the Inttr(kftin thus alludes to the passage of the bill: The Heunepin canal amendment to the river aod harbor appropriation bill was adopted in the senate Tuesday by a vote of thirty-one to twenty-two. It is significant that the states of New York, Illinois. Michiiran, Minnesota, Iowa. Ne braska and Wisconsin were solidly for the aiiien dine lit. New York has by ex periment demonstrated the value ot writer transportation and the other stales are in the group to be most benefited by the construction of the proposed canal. Boomed for the Rrnrh. Forty six uieuiliers of tbe bar of the Seventh judical district across theiiver met in non-partisan convention at Daven port yesterday, the counties of Muscatine, Scoit, Clinton and Jackson, which comp rise the district, being represented. On motion the convention recommend cd three persons to all the political parties and to the people of the district, as suitable candidates for election as judges. The committee on resolutions reported the following, which were unanimously lopted; Wiiuhkas, A precedent has obtained for many years in this judicial district, with rare exceptions, to appoint and elect judges without regard to their poli tical affiliations; and WlltKfcAS, A non-partisian bench is best adapted to promote purity and in dependence in the administration if ju dical affairs. Therefore be it Ketolred, That we. members of Ihe bar of the Seventh Judicial district of Iowa, recommeud that the precedent of non partisan nominations be continued, and to that end we suggest that the KmiX; ii'i their conventions make m ",fr,TrIoi,.no f.,r judicial POiiionirfVtive of lhe parIy affiliations,,,, call(iltei, lin,i svtv hereoy recommeuu as competent anil proper persons for judges of this dis trict: William ''. Brannan, of Muscatine county. . John N. Kouers, of hcott county. A. J. LeBlngweil, of Clinton county. And respectfully ask an endorsement of our action by the people and all par ties. The democrats across the river have, however, called a convention, and it is probable that they will nominate a struigbtout ticket. River ItipletM.

Maj. Mclvenzie, chief engineer ir charge of the Mississippi improvement, is in the city. He says of tbe $o,0tH) ap propriation to improve the Duouque ice iiaroor yet unexpended, that his design was that the harbor was not intended for general use, but to be simply a harbor for boats. He cannot spend the nioucy tor paved sloping levee such as tne city council want, lie docs not want tu buque to lose the appropriation, and the 5.1100 therefore remains untouched to await developments. Dubuque Times. Where Is Pat ? In all the pxlilical gossip that comes to us from every part of the state we find no mention of the Hon. Patrick O Mara of Ruck Island.
