M. Liljen- crant7,, assistant engineer of that department, of the United States regular army service, is here with his men making a survey for the final location of the Henncpin canal. They arrived liict evening and commenced work this morning at the river here. Mr Liljen- crantz called at the Telegraph office this morning and in conversation we learn from him that he is now starting out to make a final survey for the detailed work of building the canal; including everything necessary for letting contracts, including sizn and character of locks, aqueducts, flood gates, wastoweirs, etc. While we have had several surveys for this canal there has never been made such a complete ono as this is to be; and such survey has been needed very much that a report may be made giving a definite statement as just what is to be the cost of the canal.- Tho great objection which has been made to the enterprise has generally come in the shape of exager- rated statements as to the cost of the canal.. While the estimated cost of the entire work, as made by competent engineers, has been placed at only four and a half million dollars, still carping grumblers have insisted that the Una! survey would run It up to double that amount. Now it is proposed to make a full and final survey which will give the exact cost of the Hennepin canal One great drawback to the work has been the fact that the friends of theca nal could not agree upon a western ter minus and this has in a great measure heretofore divided the efforts of its friends. Citizens on the Mississippi river, residing between Rock Island and Clinton, were i'tody to defeat the measure whenever any other than their favorite towns were talked of as the western terminus of the canal.—We believe that this stumbling block in the matter of pushing the measure has been finally disposed of by the Secretary of War locating that end of the canal at Rock Island. '1 he power was by Congress given that official, wo believe, by tho bill which Genornl Henderson introduced in tho Lower House and which passed, appropriating money for a final locating survey, and report to Congress. Our people generally had given up all hope of a Hennnpin canal. The Telegraph believes that tho work will be pushed to a final finish at no distant day. It is a much needed great national enterprise and the people-will yet demand it. —Mr. A. D. Adamp, of 1'rophetstown, father of Editor Adams, of this city, yesterday lost his famous trotter, McGregor Boy, in an accident at Maqno- keta, Iowa. A dispatch gives the following particulars: At the Jackson county fair held in Maquoketa-today an accident occurred in the 2:30 race which resulted in the death of McGregor Boy. ono of the horses entered, with a probably fatal injury to tho driver, Bert Smith. There were seven entries, McGregor Boy and a Clinton horse taking ti-e lead. During the first heat the latter tried to get the pole. The wheels of the sulkies became interlocked, and both horses and drivers were thrown. McGregor Boy's neck was broken and his driver was seriously injured. The dead horse was owned by Adams, of Prophetstown, III., and was valued at S8.000. t i?, work on the canal will probably >PKIII next year. In the prcvinsis sur rcya, the feeder comes down the river o wilhi'i a short distance of Nelaon. The feeder can be made ns prplitabln to Sterling as Dixon, in ctiBn it follows hat route, by forming a Rreat rcni rvoir of water between Sterling iind Dixon by building the "up.K-r dam," and running a branch cnnal to the feeder. In that way, we could get coal for manu- "acturing purposes here at little above :ost, to supply the factories which could be located on the water power, and in other parts of town. Let 113 turn seeming ills into profit. —The rrgular meetings of the Wednesday Club have boon resumed. The jlub is planning to give three concerts this year the same us last, the first to be a sacred cantata by Alfred Gaue—a London musician. This is comparatively a new work, but in places were it bus been given it is highly recommend ed. It consists of solos, trios, quar- tettes and choruses, all having a relationship to each other and making a complete whole The difficulty of sustaining such a chorus as the Wednesday club makes the. opportunity to hoar complete chorus works comparatively Infrequent, but when we remember that the gieatest worke of some of the greatest composers are of this kind, and that outside of our largest cities are very seldom heard, tho value of an organization that shall present from time to time musical works of the highest order can hardly be overestimated. ' Is it too much to at least hopo that a musical society shall be ealab' lished here that will in time be able to give such works as IIandel's "Messiah," Haydn's "Creation," and He iioJuaoliu's "St. Paul"—all works that never grow old? Do the people of Sterling, whether musical or not, reali/o of what value —not only to those_directly._interested in it, but to the city in general—such an undertaking is? The educating and refining influence of good music and the advantage of living in a town where this may be enjoyed, should not be lost sight of. Assistance can be rendered in ma_ny ways. If you can ning you can assist by becoming an active member. There is especial need of ^gentlemen in this direction. If you cannot sing, but feel interested in the work, you can help by becoming an honorary member and thus render financial aid. If you are not especially interested in music, rJUtfeeLanJnterestin the_prospenty of your city in general, can you not by be 7 coming an honorary member of the Wednesday Club, render a real service to the city by helping to sustain those things that are a benefit to it? ..Why do people buy furniturn at th tork Knlls furniture store?

On Thursday Mr. Llndon will appear as Damon in the historical drama made famous by McCullogb, Keene, Booth, and others. Mr. Linden's rendition of this difficult character is said to be one of the finest pieces of acting seen upon the stage today. This play he has produced in all the larger cities of the west he making a specialty of it for the past two seasons. The costumes worn in this piece are made from exact patterns of those worn during the reign of Diomcius, King of Syracuse. On Friday Mr. Linden will appear in his new play, the Son of Monte Cristo, for which he carries new and elegant scenery. Messrs. Lawrie Bros, who are always on the lookout for an attraction of merit, fin ally secured this, giving them a large guarantee, knowing that the theatre goers of Sterling appreciate merit. —Our readers will sen by an article taken fro a the Dixon Telegraph, that a new survey is being made for the Ilennepin caua). Tho project was defeated in Congress several years ago, and it was supposed that it was forever killed. At that time, the people of Sterling fought vigorously against that_meaaure t _The_plans_ca.ll Jor a navigable feeder to run from Dixon to a point near Heunepin, to supply what water is carried away by the locking system in the main canal;" also a government dam at Dixon, to raise the water high enough to make a sufficient fall for the feeder. The objection on the part.of the Ster[ n g people was caused by the fact that ;he feeder would take a certainamonnt of water from the river, and thus damage the water power at Sterling. From .he unanimous way in which the Ilen- nepin project was endorsed at Cincinnati it would seem as if the friends of the measure are bound to carry it through Congress this winter. The principal argument In favor of the canal, ia that a through water route from New York to the MUsisslppi river will greatly Increase the business of th« northwrst.

His company has an established business and pays high wages for the class of work done. We understand he desires a small amount of stock taken, to enlarge the business. ~.—Our citizens should thoroughly investigate ail oilers of manufacturers who desire to romove here, and where the business Is a good one, and the terms reasonable, the offer should be accepted. Each new factory, no matter how small, is a help to the town, and besides, thb small ones have a chance to grow larger. Rockford.^years ago, (and is doing the same now) received a number of small factories by citizens taking a part of the stock, and today they are large and paying institutions. The citizens of ,that place were bound to make their town grow, and they did it. This city should have many hundreds more people by next June. The Keystone EVERY DEPARTMENT Chicago KxpONitlon.
