Capt. 3Iarsii alt's) Report on the Iim
eulty at the Iloath or Keck Rlter.
. A dispatch from Washington to jes-
terday's Chicago Inter-Ocean states:
With refer nee to the changes in the
dimensions 1 the locks of the Hennepin
canal in accordance with the views of
Senator Corn no, the report ssys that the
question o( tiie relatiuDs of canal lock
aimensioDS aid other elements rtUtirjg
to the question of economy, etc., have
been considered, but have each time been
found so complicated that no definite
answer could be made that can at alt be
reearded as correct. The report dis
cusses the question scientifically in ex
tenso and in language that only the
scientific can jnderstand. Referring more
in detail to the questions involved in
the controversy over the loca
tion of the Hennepin canal route,
Captain Mersball proceeds; This
location was t once contested by private
iateiests situt.ted along the northern line
on grounds: 1. That the approved plans
injured or destroyed existing water
powers. Seond, that the route had been
already fixed along the north shore and
that it could not be changed except by
act of Congn -s. With rtference to the
first point it May be said that the pro
posed dams sre across the chutes at the
had of the rap'ds. Existing water
powers are at the foot of the rapids and
the darns lover than proposed by the
United States It is clear that the entire
flow of Roci river except the small
quantity required for lockage will con
tinue to pass oyer the cresis of the dams
and past the tites of these water powers
where it can be as well utilized after tbe
construction of the dams as before. It is
proposed to construct sluices in the dams
to maintain i.ny reasonable division of
the water flov ing down the chutes, bnt
it is evident Uat the interests along the
north shore will obstruct the execution
of the work. The dams, however, may
be moved and instead of two dams across
the arms of Rock river a single dam may
be built abovo the head of Carr's Island,
which will al! w the riow of Rock river
to take its own course down the various
channels and remove from these parties
any ground or pretence that the United
States works interfere with the relative
discharge.of these channels. It is not
proposed to interfere witn the water
power in anyway except by taking the
water necessary for navigation or by ex
tinguishing water power rights when
necessary toinerfere with them.
The I.ab r lay I'rlebi atioo.
At a meeti;ig of ttie Mo.ine general
committee of arrangements for Labor day
Friday night, the grounds committee re
ported that ths choice lay between Con
cordia Patk and Davenport's grove.
There was an interesting discussion as to
which was the best and most convenient
of these placts. If it was desired to
continue the j icnic during the evening,
Davenport's rove would have to be
chosen, but if they intended to have the
pienic in the afternoon only, then Con
cord ia Park would be equally as good.
Some thought that it would be a good
idea to close st 7 o'clock, while others
were of the opinion that it would ba ad
visable to continue the picnic during the
evening. It was also believed that
the Central street car line could
not accommodate the large crowd which
will want to r;ach the grounds immed
iately after tie parade. Everyone will
want to get out to the grounds at once,
and the facilities for transporting them to
the park were thought to be inadequate,
whereas, on the other hand if Davenport's
grove be cboien, the syndicate cars on
both lines wo jld carry the people to with
in five or 6ix blocks of the grounds, whiie
the soecial truins which may be secured
on the Q. and C . R. I. & P., will accom
modate a large number, bringing a good
many direct from the other cities.
There was so much difference of opin
ion, howeve-, that Chairman Hanzell
called for J a division of the bouse on the
matter, and L avenpori's grove won six to
seven, the chiirman and secretary not

There came very nearly being a fright
ful fatal accident on tbe Rock Island
bridge la'e yesterday afternoon on ac
count of carelessness on the part of the
dynamo man at Davis & Company's power
station, Moline. Ollie Sammons and
Fred Ehlers were at work repairing some
of the light w.res on the draw span and
were on the tower over the center of the
draw. The station bad been notified to
turn the current off the wires, but it
seems that th;s was done only as to one,
and when Sammons grasped ton live wire
he received a terrible shock, receiving tbe
full force of tae charge of 1,000 volts and
rendering him unconscious. He was un
able to let go and thus he was held, his
fellow workmin who did not dare touch
him for fear of getting a shock himself,
expecting him to be dashed to pieces by
falling the distance of 120 feet, at any
moment. Th': engineers on tbe bridge,
however, at list came to his rescue bv
having the current switched off and the
unfortunate n an was released from bis
peril, though not until his right hand and
wrist were so badly burned as to render
him a cripple.

The important feature of this storm waye
will be the inauguration of tbe last gen
eral rain period that will occur during the
1S91 crop season. Of course it will not
cause rains ii every county in tbe United
States, but the rains will be somewhat
similar to those of the first half of Jane,
and a number of those destructive rain
faiU, popularly termed cloud bursts, may
be expected. This rain period will con
tinue t'U the close of the month.

Scarcely lrss foolish is the practice of thote who
fly to violent physicing for cot:Teae?. They
dose themselves violently weaken theirbow els by
so doinjf, anddisab e them from acting regularly,
so that, verily, the last sondition of such poopie
is worse than the first. Ilostetur's Stomach Bit
ters is the afe and effective substitute for such
Tat expedients, for it is by no means expedient
to use them. What is needed is a gentle bnt
thorough Mxative, which not only insures action
of the bowels without inin or weakening- effects,
which also promotes a healthy secretion and flow
of bi.e into its prouer channel. Dyspepsia, de
bility, kidney coinplaicts, rheumatism and ma
laria give in to the Bitters.
