The secretary of war yesterday gave on the report of the Cumstock board of army engineers unpointed under the pro vision of the river ami harbor bill, to ex amine into the feasibility of the Henne pm canal. "The board finds, says the Chicago Tribune's Washington Sieeial, "that the propose canal is feasible, and because of its commercial importance is worthy to be uodtrtaken by Hie general government. But it also specially reeom- jneiuls the non acceptance hy the United Slates of the Illinois & Michigan caufl under the provisions of the existing act of the Illinois legislature." The Tribune's article continues: Ibis im'Hti-thU a recession would be necessary by the people of Illinois, hnd this would take the subject out of con gress Mr tne next turee or tour years. I he Com-;to.'k board also by its indo ment ol ttie Manas d O.-tir or northern route, a against the Kock Island or southern route, puts a dainper on many fiicnds of Hennepin and drives the iron into the soul ot Jerry Morphv.

John Newton, when at the head of the engineers corps, always over ruled his subordinates and up held the Rock Island route because of its siii-erior commercial advantages.

The SS0.000 desired for storehouse will erect a building exactly like store house A, which is declared to be the most complete building for its purpose in tne L'nited states. The arlilery shed, for which $14,000 desired, will be 56 feet wide wilh length of 245 feet, and will be built on the south side of, and opposite, shop G. It is very much needed . Tbe arsenal is I designed to be the main storage of ar tillery, and the present facility of pro tectint; anu preserving gun, carriages, caissons, etc., is inadequate and lncon venient, besides occupying room desired for other purposes. With the $17,000 desired lor the ma ehinery and shop fixtures, it is proposed to continue tne work ot putting snaftin and other fixtures into the shops now being completed, to add to the plant of the arsenal such machines as are required for immediate use and form part of the permanent plant ot the arsenal, and to continue th" construction of one of tbe great lines of sbaftimr for connective the simps with water power. It la important that the titling up of the shops for use should progiess with the construction of the buildings. These fixtures are manu tactured in the arsenal shops, and the work can be done more cheaply at slack times, in connection with other work than if postponed until other work completed. tne y,uuu ror the wagon bridge to Rock Island city, will be used for replac ing the wooden beams by iron one9, re flooring wagon road and sidewalks, and painting. The report savs that this bridge can only be put in temporary re pair by the moneys appropriated hv the fiscal year eDriing June 30, 1887, but the old wooden timbers are so decaved tha it is very necessary it should be put in thorough good order, the use of the v.-:,!.... .u.. ui:.. ii .i onuuc oi mc ouuiic, nr. wen us lue OVS ouuicui, ot-iuy erv eonsiueraoie. , i . ., , In recommending 82,100 for reiilaeinsr a oonng and sidewalks and for repainting Hie Muline bridge, the report savs that the flooring and sidewalks of this brid require to be replaced almost entirelv.a it will need many temporary repairs durin the present year to enable it to be used for the purposes for which it was con tracted. Concerning the $13,000 desired for general care, preservation and improve mems, for building new roads, for care and preservation ot the water power, for paining, anu care and preservation of permanent Duildim:s, bridges and shores of the island, for building fences, grading grounds and repair and extension of rail road, the secretary says that this work is necessary in the progress of the work of building the arsenal. I he roads are re quired for immediate use in building ope- rations. and should be so permanently built as to become a permanent part of the arse- I, and this work on roads, grading and sewers can be done far more economic ally while other excavations and build ings ore going on and the two kinds of rk which arh are dependent. A large portion of the amount is absolutely nec essary for the preservation of immense buildings and extensive roads, bridges and other constructions alreadv built.and for the maintenance of the water power aud its transmission of power. The im port-nice of this estimate, and the econo my aud ueeessity of an appropriation of tue wnole amount asked for. cannot be loo strenuously urged. I here is urgent need, too, of the $2.- 835 wanted for repairing the temporary lowers for wire transmission ot water power, lor mese lowers nave Oeen up many years, and, bf;ing of a temporary nature, will require to be almost recon structed for the adoption of some defi nate and permanent plans for the trans mission of the water-power, and this up piopriation is urgently needed." In explaining the purposes for which 17,250 is desired for the Davenport bridge, it is stated lhat $9,000 is wanted for the care and expense of maintaining and operating the dr w. $230 for pro tecting the bridge bv sheer booms, and $8,000 for renewing" trucks with steel rollers at the end of each span, wagon road, sidewalks, floor-beams and string ers for supporting railroad track. The further statement is made that "this bridge will be put in temporary repair ith the moneys appropriated for the fiscal year ending June 30. 1887, but it requires thorough overhauling, and as the government is required to keep it in thorough repair for railroad, wagon and tool-passenger purposes, the necessity lor the appropriations is apparent." These estimates have been approved by tne house commitlee.which it is pretty safe to say means the approval of the same hy congress. Hnnrtay Men-ires.

Arrangements have been made by the Illinois Signal Service, by which the rest dents at telegraph stations on the divis ions of tbe railioaas noted below, can have without expense tbe information necessary to display the weather, temper ature and cold wave flags Chicago & Alton Chicago to 8t Louis; Bloomington to Louisiana: Rood house to Godfrey; Dwight to Washing ton.

Cairo, Vincennes & Chicago Cairo to Uanvule. The Illinois Signal Service desires to have the weather, temperature and cold wave flags displayed at each of the tele raph stations on the lines of all tbe railroads in the state. The officers of the above named roads have agreed to tele graph regularly and promptly the indica tions to all their stations, and tbe local agents receiving the same will be in strueted to give, without charge, the warnings to the editors of papers and others interested in displaying weather, temperature and cold wave signals. All engaged in the movement of grains, as well as the shippers and the traveling public, will esteem it a great privilege to have this iuformation furnished daily. Tne citizens of the majority of the towns on the roads named above are in terested in having the weather, tempera tore and cold wave flags displayed, and the limited cost for the flags and staff for displaying the same is the only expense necessary to obtain information that will benefit all classes.
