TEE PEIZE CLAUSE STRICKEN OUT.
Allowing Cosapcasatlosi to Architects f nr
Superior Plana Kot CmaltuacMl by the
Board The Betiding Committee's In
spect low Expense Aeeoant Applications
The building and finance commit
tees of the now conrt honse made
their respective reports to the coun
ty loari yesterday afternoon, the
former's recommeudatiotis being
adopted as stated. The building
committee's report was somewhat
altered, however. A clause allowing
prizes in denominations of $100,
$2W and 300 for the three best arch
itects' plans submitted Has stricken
out. An attempt was made by Su
pervisor Ford to change the amount
recommended by the commi tee from
1110.0(H) to $100,000. excluding the
beating apparatus, thns allowing
$25,000 for furnishing and heating
purposes. This was defeated. A
long discussion followed, some of
the supervisors being in favor of the
greatest precaution being taken not
to allow moro than $12-VK to be ex
pended on the building. Others be
lieved that while it was the inten
tion to limit the cost to the bond is
sue, extra expenses were apt to
oecur. Supervisor MeKinley offered
a resolution which was adopted,
that the court house be turned over
to the county completed and fur
nished at a cost not exceeding $r-'5,-00ft.
Chairman Quayle, of the building
committee, asked the board to decide
in what manner the commit tee should
be paid for its inspection tour ex
penses. The law, as he understood
it, allowed 10 cents per mile travel
ing exenses, beside the usuai per
diem. This was the law observed
by committees in other counties.
Whether 10 cents a mile or actual ex
penses should be charged was a ites
tion which had arisen among mem
bers of the committee, and it re
mained for the board to decide, al
though he bidieved the amount 8 tin
united bv law should be received.
Mr. tfuaylr was asked if the commit
tee had not rcci-ived free railroad
passes, lie diil not deny this, stal
ing that the committee had been ex
ceptionally fortunate in the matter of
being tendered various courtesies by
the railroad companies. Supervisor
ll:isson, one of the commit tee, njv
held the opinions advanced by Mr.
tjnavlc. further holding that the
board should establish a system at
once in accordance with the statutory
laws providing for the payment of
such committees. It was only
through good fortune that I he build
ir.g committee had received, so'nc
free passage, he said. Committees
going on tours in the future may not
be so generously accommodated, and
for this reason he believed 10 cents a
mile should be allowed for traveling
Don't Itclieve In Ko-Cilled 'Polls."
Supervisor Armstrong didn't un;
lerstand wbv the county should be
obliged to compensate the committee
for something it hat got lor notaing.
It looked to him like a "null." ami
ie did not believe the building com
mittee should be the first to start
anything of this nature. Mr. Arm
strong accordingly moved that the
committee be allowed its actual cx-
M-nses anil the usual icr diem of

tjuavle thereupon presented the com
mittee s actual expense of 9:mi...

per mile would amount to fC7.N0 per
man. or a total of t;.'J lor me 11
gentlemen making the tour. Sub
tracting the actnal expense bin of
$241. S.j from this amount, constitutes
a saving to the county of $.r03.f.r.
Obviously, the board took tne
wise course in deciding as it did.
Adjournment was taken nntil
o'clock this morning, when, after
disposing of some routine business
and passing a vote of thanks to 1H-
vtsion Agent Mack, of the C, i.
O., for favors to the building com-
mittc,it adjourned subject to the call
of the building committee.
Three applications were made for
superintendent of the court house
tt. A. Smith. Moline; W. A. Guthrie,
Kock Island, and Charlton Wright
Iiavenport which were referred to
the building committee. Not a chirp
was there about Collins, and his close
friends on the building comm'ttee
say that his services on the recent
trip will cost nothing, as indeed, let
it le said, ther sbonbl not. J here
is an ominons air of mystery about
Mr. Collins' name' being mentioned
in connection , with, the protoscd
building, and there is an apparent
disposition to preserve as much
quiet as possible Itoth as to him and

superintendent for the present.

'The Hon. W.H. Gest, of this city.
has definitely decided to become a
candidate for the republican nomin

for the Tenth district," gravely as
serts the Union of this morning: "He
signified his intention in the most
practical possible way on Monday by
seeing a number of representative re-
puolicans of Cock Island and Moline
and enlisting their' support," the
same paper continues: "We are glad
to see Mr. Gest enter the field in this
hearty, unaffected manner." it adds.

say about (lest making the wheels (of

and Garfield and Maine in the same
breath with the only one who has

The "hearty, unaffected manner"
bv which Mr. Gest "on Monday"
gratified the Union so greatly is
the most distasteful thing to
the deecnt-ly inclined republicans
about the entire Gest candidacy.
Gen. Post died on Sunday morning.
and it was "on Monday " that Mr.
Gest was around in his "hearty, un
affected manner" and "on Tuesday"
n the same article which contained
the announcement of t'ongressman
Post's death, appeared the first gnn
for Gest as his successor, and every
day since the Gest boom has been
pushed with an audacity, and a spir
it of narrow selfishness that is as
tounding, and the formal announce
ment of the "definite" decision on
t lie part of tho standing candidate
the only one is but the climax of n
procedure that has aroused a sense of
astonishment, indignation and dis
gust on the part of republicans them

that when President Kent under

To tbe citizens of Kock Island: we

the accounts of privation ana suffer
ing which hundreds of families in the
drouth stricken portions of that
state are now enduring, tor some
counties it is the second or third
year ot crop failure. This, for a
pioneer country, means absolutedes-
titution. Not the shiftless alone, but
tbe industrious and well-to-do have,
in many instances, liven reduced to
the necessity of looking to the kind
ness of friends and the generosity of
strangers, for succor. 1 here have
been not a few authenticated cases of
death from starvation and freezing
