THE KOCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19. 1886.
HUESING IS SUSTAINED. " Jatfge lenn Oven-ales the Helton to Dissolve the Injunction in the Abattoir due. In the circuit court this afternoon Judge Glenn rendered bis decision in the case of the motion on the part of the city to dissolve the Huesing injunction, enjoining the city from using the recently constructed abattoir, and ap propriating money to sustain the same. The injunction was served by Mr. August Huesing last June, and during the Sep tember term of court the motion on the part of the city to dissolve the injunction was argued by Messrs. Gest. Sturgeon and E. D. Sweeney, and M. E. Sweeney on the part of the city, and Judge Wilkinson, and Messrs. Jack', sun and Dunham, the latter of Gencseo, for Hut-sing, the mouthpiece of the re belling butchers for sustaining the in junction. These gentlemen were all in the court room when Judge Glenn c&ve his decision. Judge Glenn stated in his remarks ac conpanying his decision that the vital question of the injunction was whether or not the city had a right to establish an abattoir. The decision is therefore a victory for the revolting butchers over the city at the start, but it by no means ends the ce, as the motion raiy be taken to the supreme court if the city so desires. OTHER OOCKT DOISC.S. Judge Clean this afternoon filed the bonds of K iepping and Mills, charged with horsestealing at ?4lKl each. The grand jury met this afternoon pur suant to Hie call from Judge Glenn. It is understood the cases of Kittell and Browning, held for forgery, fire to receive attention. A Meriou Aeeirtent. J. L. DryJeo, who was a strong and popular candidate before the republican convention at Monmouth, which nomina ted W. H. Gest for congress, met with a terrible accident at Alexis Wednesday evening. Exactly how the accident hapi pened is not known, as Mr. Drvder., who had been conveyed to his home in Mon mouth, had not recovered consciousness sufficiently to state. The casualty hap pened on the C, B. & Q. road, however. and from a dispatch from Alexis to the Monmouth Gazette, these particulars are obtained: The south bound train was late and running fast. Dryden attempted to go from the Alexis hotel after the whistle sounded and had cleared the rail, lie was struck by the steam box on the engine and thrown twenty feet forward anil eight east. He fell on the depot plat form. The engineer said that Mr. Dryden must have been lying on the engine un conscious when he started; that immedi ately upon starting up he, the engineer, saw the form of the insensible man and a', once stopped the wheels, but not uutil the injuries above alluded to had been in flicted. It is the opinion of some that Mr. Dryden was running along parallel with the locomotive and that his clothing caught in some of the wheels or moving machine ry. However it happened, the accident was a terrible one. After he was put on the train the injured man spoke but twice, calling the names of dear ones. Any number of mun were ready to help in caring for the sufferer, but it was little they could do. The train reached Monmouth about 1 :30 yes terday morning, aud it was 2 o'clock when the unconscious man lay uon a bed in his own bouse. The latest reports from the patient, were not at all encourag ing. though the attending physicians were quite hopeful. A Good Investment Anyone who has ever dealt iu lauds, knows that no investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safety o' a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rale of interest which cau be obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands arc raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and the great tide of immi gration into these states has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, fiee as it is from the long rigouroiis cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far mer they hoid out special inducements. Cheap laud, easv term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own bis farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it. If you are looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay you a large and sure prolit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer.

Overseer of the Poor Koch is experi encing his usul ordeal at this time of the year, of being called upon to care for poor people who are not really pau pers. Mr. Koch haB no legal provision for caring for the destitute under such circumstances, but he is willing to re ceive any donations that may be given him in money, fuel or clothing, which he will distribute to the best of his judg ment. This is the time of year when the poor and needy should be thought of.and Mr. Koch will act as agent for any con tributions in ibis direction. The Park. Messrs. II. J. Lowrey and A. V. Bru nei1, of the park committee, were out in specting and measuring proposed sites this morning. These gentlemen are aux io'is that any person having tracts suita ble for driving park purposes make them known to the committee, in order that they be considered before a selection is made. The committee has seen some de sirable pieces of land, but the price asked seems a little steep. Poliee Point. Joseph Allen, John Lee, Chris Ander son, Geo.

The Meeting of the Commission flt Chicago Yesterday Prominent Men Speak for the Project A Committee to Washington Election of (Beers. From the Chicago Timet of today the following report of the canal meeting in Chicago yesterday is taken: The Michigan and and Mississippi ca ual commission held its annual meeting at the Grand Pacific hotel yesterday. Commissioners Murray Nelson, William Bross, of Chicago, Col. Llley. of Dixon, and L. a. Kav, of Morris, were present In addition there were present Congress' men L. E. Pay son, of the Ninth district; William H. Neece, of the Eleventh dis trict, and T. J. Henderson, of the Seventh district all of Illinois and Jeremiah Murphy, of the Second district, and Ben jamin Hall, of the First district both of towa. The lour Chicago congressmen were conspicuous by their absence. The meeting was called to order by Gov. Bross, and upon his motion Col. J. E . L'tlev. of Dixon, took the chair, and Sens ator Ray acted as secretary. Gov. Bross stated the object of the meeting was to arouse public interest in the Hennepin canal, and to sec what could be done to secure Its passage during the coming session of congress. Ho recounted some of the benefits to be derived from the canal, and declared that it was essential to enable the farmers ol the northwest to compete with the wheat raisers of Russia and Asia in supplying Great Britain and turope with wheat. Congressman Murphv exoressed great disappointment and displeasure at the lack of interest in the Hennepin canal, as shown by the absence from the meeting of both officials and citizens. Chicago would receive more benefits from the ca nal than any other point; vet, with ten times the interest and five hundred times the financial strength of any of the Mis sissippi towns, it did not do as much for the Hennepin canal as anv of the small cities on the banks of the river. He wanted that fact published. The most important time in the history of the Hen nepin project had arrived. Illinois had given the Illinois and Michigan canal to the government upon the condition that the government should connect it with the Mississippi river bv building the Hen nepin canal within rive years. That time will expire in November, ISsT. The bill is now the first on the calendar of unfinished business. Congress would meet on Deo. 6, and during the two weeks it was necessary to use every ef fort to have the bill considered. Chicago should send its representatives to Wash ington before Dec. 6, and be on hand at the opening of the session. He inquired if there were any members of congress from Chicago present. Receiving no re sponse, he replied warmly that Rock Isl and, Moline, and Davenport would send delegations. He would leave for the east immediately, and while there would try to induce Master Workman Powderly to go to Washington at the opening of con gress and add his influence to the more than six hundred petitions already pre sented to congress for Hennepin by the Knights of Labor. Congressman Payson expressed great surprise at the lethargy of the Chicago men in the Hennepin project. If any thing was to be done within the next five years, it must be at the coming session, and if there was a united and determined effort upon the part of the friends of Hennepin, it would be carried through ! Mr. Murphy, he said, had declared that if the Uennepiu bill was defeated he would do what he could to again defeat the river and barter bill, but he didn't want it published. He (Payson) would make the same declaration, but ue did nut want it published. He wanted every member of congress who had au ax to ;zriud in the river and harbor bill to un derstand that a vote against Hennepin would secure his vote aud influence and labor asainst the river and harbor bill Hennepin he regarded as deserving of appropriation as New York harbor. The treasury is so full of money derived from revenue that the government was worried in disposing of it. What, then, was a ualtrv ,IKH),IHKI for an improvement of such immense benefit to so large a sec tion of the country. The revenue dis trict in which Peoria is located puts a larger revenue than any other district iu the country, and it is immediately tribu tary to the Hennepin canal. There was no reason whv it shouldn't be built. The question was how to induce con grcss to build it. From that meeting a delegation of representative public and business men should go to W ashington and make the congressmen vote for it by convincinc them of its true character as a national improvement. Manv demo crats, from the south especially, were opposed to congress building it became it is located entirely in the state of Illi nois, and they would regard its construc tion by the government as unconstitu tional. Those men should been seen and convinced of their error. Congressman Hall stated that for sevs eral years past Iowa legislatures had in structed their senators and representa tives to support the Hennepin project. It should go beiore congress as an in dependent measure, and not as a part of the river and harbor bill. If Chicago would do its duty in the matter by send ing proper delegations to congress it would stand a good chance to go through. He declared the Hennepin canal to bear the same relation to interstate commerce as the Suez canal bears to international commerce. No piece of ground like dimensions in the world would connect such important waterways. Congressman Henderson, introduced by his colleague. Mr. Murphy, "the fath er of Hennepin," recounted the career of Hennepin in congress, and staled that he believed the Hennepin and river and har bor bills should be divorced. He was inclined to believe everything would de pend upon the report of the board of en gineers appointed to investigate the Hennepin project. Ue believed the re port wouid be favorable, and if so. there was a good chance for the bill, and even if it should be defeated in the house the senate would attach it to the river and harbor bill. Congressman Neece said there should be a thorough organization of the friends of Hennepin, and Chicago could organi ze a movement and bring friends to Wash ington, and if necessary, antagonize every measure with it until the members of con gress would give Hennepin its just dues and get it out of the way. Mr. Murry Nelson said he could cx plain the absence of Chicago people up on the ground that many Chicago people were so small that they didn't want the Hennepin canal built, because it would give the Mississippi towns equal water advantages with Chicago, and for that reason didn't want navigation extended further west, because it would increase the value of lands there to the deprecia tion of the value of lands in and near Chicago. Others, however, and among them heads of railway corporations, fa vored the building of Hennepin on the broad ground that it would so increase the general welfare of the northwestern country that tbe increase of business would more than offset the loss they might meet through competition in freights. On motion of cxGovcrnor Bross, Mui ry Nelson and E. Nelson Blake were apv pointed to go to Washington to assist in having the measure passed, and to them were added ex-.Governor Bross, C. B. Farwell, and State Senator Kay. Old officers were reelected as follows: President John Utley, Dixon . Secretary David T. Littler, Spring field. Treasurer- -Murry Nelson, Chicago. Chairman of the e xecutive committee ex-Governor Bross, Chicago. THE THEATRE. Jlarie Aimee Wilson and HanklnH Minstrels. Contracting Agent Rankin and his as sistant. Agent Bohm, have been in town during the day making arrangements for the appearance of the famous Wilson & Rankins minstrels at Harper's theatre Tuesday evening. The mere mention of this fact should be sufficient to draw a very large audience. George Wilson and Kail Rankin are two of tbe most famous minstrel artists in the world. The com pany is this week playing at the Stand ard theatre, Chicago. AIMKE. In regard to Aimee, who is to appear at Harper's theatre tomorrow evening in her very successful farce comedy Mam 'zelle, the Brooklyn New York Standard of Sept. H, says: There was a round of merriment at the Park theatre last evening when Aimee and her excellent company appeared in the farcical comedy written expressly for her and entitled "Mam'zelie." It has been criticized so many times that it is not worth while to redescribe it, except to say that the situations are as natural as any in real life, and intensely amusing, one of the funniest scenes being that in which Mr. Tupper and brother-in-law view the banquet he pavs for but to which be is not invited, though he after wards improves the opportunity when the banqueters leave to stuff himself with the delicate viands on the table. Tbioughout, Aimee displayed that thorough apprecia tion of the humor of the piece which en ables her to touch so successfully the risibles of the audience. The unusual spectacle of some of the actors as a part it the audience, playing their parts in the boxes and among the seals, was also highly appreciated, as it always is, and the fun was heightened by the mistakes made by the audience, some of whom thought the actors in question lunatics, and were glad. when Police Officer Dan came in and rushed one of them out. The sale of seats is now progressing at C. C. Knell's. BK1EFLETS. Bulk oysters, at F. G. Young's Choice poultry, at F. G. Young's. Gloves, gloyes, gloves at Lilerman's.

Second avenue, near People's national bank. That iutenogatiou point which appears in Ihe newspapers, on the street corners, and on public conveyances is a mystery to many. Everybody is curious to know what it means, but future developments may satisfy them. There is a dangerous crossing opposite Sinnett's for children going to school, and come time or other there will be lives lost there, as the trains run much faster there than tbe law allows, and since Murdock become mayor, policemen are scarce in that locality. Kays From the Headlight. A new railroad project is ou the tapis in the east, with $30,000,000 capital to build a new through line from the Allan tic to the Mississippi and beyand. The Chicago, Kock Island & Pacific railway has leased the Dcs Moines and Ft. Dodge railway at a rental of 30 per cent, of the gross earnings, to commence January 1, 1887. The Rock Island also guarantees to pay interest on the first and extension bonds at 4 per cent and upon the income bonds of 2 per cent per an num, also to advance the money to pay the deferred Interest script outstanding THE PILOT'S PLEA. What Iorranee Han to May of the I'harce Made Against Him In teresting Proceedings. The Argus has fully described tbe im pendiug difficulties between the rapids pilots, growing out of a jealousy between the Dorrances, McCaffreys, etc , and an alleged violation of the rules governing pilots on the part of Dor ranee. Dorrance, after the investigation by Inspectors Burns and Scott, was relieved from the discharge of his duties for a certain per iod, and it seems that he piloted boats over the rapids during the time of his suspension. The case was taken up be fore United States Commissioner White at Davenport yesterday. D. A. Dor rance, one of the three Dorrances who are so well known as rapids pilots, was the party in custody, charged with the crime of violating section 4438 of the laws of the United States, which forbids any person to act as pilot of a vessel on the navigable waters of the United States without a license. It appears, too, that district inspectors, Burns and Scott are at the bottom of the prosecution. They notified United States Attorney Finch of the alleged offense, and he acted accordingly, and Captain Jack McCaffrey was summoned as the prosecuting witness. The information alleges that on tbe 14th day of September, 1SS6, the license of I). A. Dorrance w as suspended by the inspect ors for a period of ten days, and that on the 17th day of September he acted as pilot on the steamer P Hot, "on the Mis sissippi river, in Scott county, Iowa," that he did the same thing with the same steamer on Ihe 2lth and 21st days of Sep tember. Attorney Finch was present for the government and Abner Davison appeared with Mr. Dorrauce as bis counsel. Mr. Davison claimed that Mr. Dorrance had not been properly suspended that he had baen given no opportunity for a hearing before the inspectors, who susn pended him peremptorily, without notice to him, and that therefore the suspen sion was irregular. However, exaiuiua lion;was waived, and the commissioners held'Donance in the sum of $300 for ap pearance at the next term of the United States court in Keokuk. All the pilots on the upper Mississippi, and the masters and mates of steamboats are watching Ihe proceedings against the Dorrances with great interest. There ate some very peculiar features in the cases. For instance, Dana Dorrance claims that he did not act as pilut during his suspen sion, that because he was seen in the pi lot houses of steamers it was taken for granted lhat he was acting at the wheel, when be wasn't. He claims, too, that be employed auother pilot, giving him $;1C!0 a month to do hi?, w.itk. But the gov ernment will endeavor to show lhat Dor rance was really the pilot when he was in tbe pilot house the times complained of; that the party he employed was not a rapids raft pilot at all. but a packet pi lot: that tbe latter slood at I lie wheel while Dorrance told him how to direct the raft in the channel, aad he steered the raft accordingly; and that thus Dor ranee was pilot in fact. Tbe inspectors say that there is nu use of having rules and regulations for lUe government of pilots, if pilots are to be pel mined to get around them in that way, or to pay no attention to suspension.
