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

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

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

The Park.
Messrs. II. J. Lowrey and A. V. Bru

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.

CANAL CONFERENCE.
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

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

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

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.
