Yesterday afternoon's fire served a
doable purpose. First and above all
It demonstrated the feasibility of
Mayor Med ill's suggestions to the
council in his annual message of a
reservoir or standpipe in tbWapidly
growing and settling locality on the
bluff east of Elm street. The people
who own property out there are de
serving of this extension of our fire
protection, it being fully shown yes
terday that it is impossible for the
pumps at the city water works to
force a stream through a hose np the
hill far from the present fire hydrant.
It is to be hoped now that the coun
cil has been brought face to face with
the situation that it will take np the
mayor's timely recommendations and
act upon them.
The error of attempting to do with
out the hook and ladder truck, which
purpose, happily, the council has de
termined to abandon and to equip the
truck for constant use, was a"-ain
illustrated. The necessary equip
ment cannot be carried on a hose
wagon to tackle a burning building,
as necessity may in some cases de
mand, and furthermore, now that
the new wagons have been intro
duced, the addition of the small lad
ders does not add to their appear
ance or usefulness. Let us have a
properly equipped truck rcadv for
duty and to respond to all "fires.
When it is not needed it may verv
readily be sent back to the Central
house, but it should always be in
readiness for an emergency.

Gilchrist, Jane 7. The situation
of the miners' strike at Gilchrist is
unchanged, the men still being ont,
and not an ounce of coal to be had
from this section. The Empire and
Aldcn companies are overran with
orders, ana are endeavoring to per
suade the men to retnrn to work.
Harmony in feeling and interest still
predominates, and no unpleasant
rumors nor actions are seen or heard.
A few davs ago the coal operators
requested the men to rail a meeting
to ascertain if there is not some wav
whereby the differences that now ex
ist might not be amicably adjusted.
In accordance with this request, the
men have called a meeting for Fri
day evening, at which time the con
ditions, etc., will be discussed. One
of the mine operators authorized one
of their officers to state to the men
that if they would resume operations
in the mines, the company would
live np to any agreement, or pay the
scale adopted by the miners' meet
ing to be held later on. The men,
while sympathizing with the deplor
able condition of affairs here and
elsewhere, are still as determined in
their move as ever, not a word of the
strike being mentioned, except in a
Coal a Scarce Article.
There is not now a bnshel of coal
in Gilchrist, and small pieces of the
precious fuel are now treasured
within the show cases of merchants,
here and elsewhere, as a raritv in
this section. The miners of this
city, for the most part, are Ameri
cans, and are following a line of pol
icy that cannot but be admired by
all friends or foes. Peace and har
mony reign supreme, and sociability,
rather than severity or indifference
characterize the town of Gilchrist.

The Angnstana Synod.
St. Peter, Minn., June 7 The
thirty-fourth annual session of the
Augustana synod is in convention at
this city. There are present about
seven hundred and fifty ministers
and laymen. The new constitution,
which was tabled at the meeting in
Rock Island a year ago, was adopted
yesterday by a vote of 27G to 56. A
very important provision of tBe new
constitution is the matter of repre
sentation, which it limits to one
minister and one delegate for every
1,500 communicants, instead of one
delegate and one minister from every
church, as provided in the old con
stitution. The question of separat
ing Augustana college from the sem
inary was discussed yesterday with
In the course of the discussion one

of the institution, would place Aug

financial footing for all time to come.
Should the pending motion to ."separ
ate the college from the seminarv
prevail, it will imply that the college
proper will no longer be the property
of the synod, but will be given to the
Illinois and Iowa conferences, aud in
all probability be removed to Chi
cago, while the seminary would re

property of tho synod. J. E. G.

William Moofe, of Coal Valley, was
in the city today, and informed us
that it was just 44 years ago that he
first set foot in Rock Island. He ar
rived via steamboat from the east,
and ate his first dinner here at the
old Rock Island house with Landlord
Barrett, who served some fine bear
steak. Shortly afterwards Mr.
Moore, accompanied by the late Dr.
E. H. Bowman and two Buffuni boya
from Andalusia, wont overland to
California, where they remained two
years. Returning, Mr. Moore set
tled on his present farm near Coal
Valley, where he has lived in con
tentment ever since.
