From Sire to Son. On next Friday evening Milton Noble's great, original, romantic, four act meto- drama, "From Sire to Son," or "Tbe j Hour and tbe Men," is to be presented at Harper's theatre. The New York Star leuda this endorsement to the piece "Milton Nobles' new plav, "From Sire I to Son," is proving a strong attraction at tbe Grand opera uoua?, and it deserves the highest success. It was a big step i for Nobles to take, but be has proved that be is fitted to 11)1 a higher sphere, both as an actor and dramatist This play is his best work, from a literary and constructive point of view. His Ian1 guaee is always forceful, his climaxes in , tense and naturally wrouimt, ana nig characters flesh and blood creations that stand out with life like prominence. As the reformed sraroblr, Mr. Nobles flits the idea to perfection and gives some ad mirable instances of natural, quiet and effective actiog. Dollie Nobles has made tbe bit of her life in tbis play. Ited at the Hmpitn1. John Oppell, the mao wbo was taken off a C, B. & Q train here a week ago while en route from St. Louis to Musca tine, died at St. Luke's hospital last even ing. He was suffering from consumption and other ailments when he arrived in Rock Island, and from the effects of which be died. Hia sister. Mrs. Mar garet Thompson, of Muscatine, was at the death bed aud left for that city with tbe remains this morning. Thyare Sprlo-iaKMpm mil tttat Reflate the Charge of the St. Panl Chamber af ConaTeas Sore Hcrona Teat men-. It is very often the case that a man must be attacked before it can bejknown just how many his friends are. This is not necessarily the case with Maj. Mac kenzie, of this city, bat the recent refleo tion made upon his river work in St. Paul has demonstrated well that be bas more staunch friends up and down this great river than it usually falls the lot of one man to enjoy. They are bristling about him from all directions ready to take up the cadiel and slay his assailants no matter who they may be or from whence thev come. The Argus last night published the remarks of ('apt. Sam Van Sunt, the famous steamboat man, in the major's defence. Now comes still further expressions of indig nation from those who know the real facts. Supervising Inspector Hayes, when asked by a reporter if he had read the re port of the committee of the St. Paul chamber, which contains the indirect charges against Maj. Mackenzie, said Yes. I have read it, and I think tbe committee is away off. It is my duty to visit every steamer that makes a landing at the levee and make semi monthly re ports as to the condition of the bulls, pumps, life-saving apparatus, boilers, etc. During the year there arrived at St. Paul 21 different Bteamers, a greater number than at any time since L became superintendent, four years ago. Tbe ! report is riht when it states that only three steamers from St. Louis reached here after September 25; that is, of the regular packet line. However, 42 land ings were made by other boats from Hastings and points below, and many of these steamers were of greater draft than the St. Louis packets. Up to September 25 there was more tonnage landed at St. Paul than for years. During the sea son there were only five transter of pas engera and freight at Hastings, owing to the low water above thai point, wbich was due to the sediment carried down by tbe Mississippi. I make no account of the numerous small craft (local) that is constantly plying up and down the river. I snow nothing about the scheme sug gested by Capt. Bell, for the removal of bars, but from tbe description given I Ehould think the present system of wing dams would be equally as effective, since both depend more or less on the current. These dams are built on an angle of from 25 to 45 deg. up stream. On tbe end of each dam is what is called a T.and tbe formation are such between the T and the shore as to form a pocket of slack water, where l he heavier sediment will settle. Tbe liuht particles will follow around the end of the T. being carried by tbe c irrnnt into the black water, where it will settle. Mr. J. H. Southa:l,of the Cmted Slates engineer's office, upon beicg shown the statement that "there was as much ob struction during the season just closed as ever before," said: Some of the largest boats on the up per river came to St. Paul in September and October, lr one boat could have come through, a hundred could have done so. Tne through packets made less frequent tri s toward the close or the season, for the reBon that business did not warrant their coming oflener. The present navigators of the upper Mississippi all btar testimony to the fact thai tbe condition of tbe river between St. P&ul and the mouth of tbe St Croix is better today than it has ever been. Capt. Hay. Limed Srates super vising inspector of aieam vessels, stales that the navigelora of tbe river tnis year. everv one, declared the river from St. Paul to Prcseott much easier to navigate than they taave-ver known it kivis- m pge 08 o? tbe ''Annual Report of tbe Chamber of Commerce" it is stated that it is tbe univ real verdict of tbe navi gators familiar with old and new condi tions tbal by the closing and wing name between St. Paul and Prescott that por tion of the river formerly almost impas siblc at low water bas been mde better than many stretches for hundreds of miles below." In recommending the device proposed by Capt. Bell the committee re fer to the government system ot improve ment an "a confessed failure langUMge entirely unwarranted as is the folio ing: "We know the reluctance with wbich the officers of the engineer bureau consent to experiment with new devices." What instances are known to tbe com mittee?" Tbe Davenport Democrat Gazette says: All the pilots and masters on the upper river are ready to afflim that tbe state ments of the St Paul committee are with out tbe least foundation in fact. Mem bers of tbe committee are interested the patent, wbich they wish to sell to the government. the fiir, NO. 170S SECOND AVENUE. it- Wo carry thu largest and best assorted stock of House FurnishingGoods Tired nT Living.

But wbetberlt be a pontoon or Dier bridee I am not certain about. Dubuque has a higb bridge costing $120,- 000. Why could not Muscatine have tbe same? A high bridge with tbe highest portion on tbe Iowa side could be easily made from tbe bluff just above the old mill site s the channel is near the Iowa shore. Tbe bridge could then slope eradaallv to the Illinois side. A pontoon bridge would cost (60,000. but for twice the money Mususcatine could secure a I permanent structure posees&ing all the advantages and none of the disadvantages I of a pontoon bridge.
