Last night all the cavalry, artillery

started upon a night inarch with the
object of turning the Moers' right.
The final operations wore suejess
fill. The infantry and lldil batt.-ries
immediately made a feint attack- upon
the Moer front, and. while this was
proceeding, the cavalry and light ar
tillery got completely around the
enemy's right Hank, us arranged. The
program worked without hitch. The
Moers were utterly surprised and find

The success of (iencral French, says

upon as an example of sound tactics
and as an illustration of what may lie
done when the right methods are em

heart and to see that no stone Is left
unturned in the endeavor to get the
largest possible forces of cavalry and

At 9 o'clock this morning water was

plaines river, and tlieuce through the
Illinois and Mississippi rivers to the
gulf. What is termed by the canal en
glneeri the "collateral channel" has
been for some lime completed from
the Chicago river in the southwestern
pint of the city to within fifteen feet
of the main channel of the canal. This
fifteen-root wall o( earth, with two
sluicegates behind it. lias been all
that kept the Chicago river and Lake
Michigan out of the canal. At 10
o'clock Monday a steam dredge began
to cut away this wall of earth, and a
few minutes before tl o'clock today the
water In the collateral channel 'was
against the sluice gates and only a few
inches of timber remained to be re
moved before Chicago was to realise
its dream of years and see the great
canal in actual operation. When the
water began to baek up against the
sluice gates the timbers were knocked

Water was allowed to How into the
canal at the rate of only .".O.OO'i cubic
