Tho Chicago Times-Herald has the
following editorial which is of par
ticular interest here, as Kock Island
county is right in it with the rest
when it corucs to erecting a court
house in keeping with the spirit of
"Perhaps there is no more striking
evidence 01 mo boundless resources
and matcbletis prosperity of the wes
tern ana middle states than, is af
forded by the magnificent and costlj
arcnueciure mat nas characterized
the court house construction in the
various counties. Hardly a month
passes that a costly court .house is
not dedicated in some countv in 111
inois, Iowa, Wisconsin or Indiana.
Theso splendid piles of stone and
brick are not only evidences of ma
terial wealth, but they quite often
exemplify the highest ideals of noble
structural design and ornate mural
embellishment. They also show an
intelligent adaptability to the re
quirements of the county's business.
ana mere is a commendable disposi
tion to consider the elements of per
manencr and solidity.
"These structures are not only the
repositories or the county records,
but they are temples of justice,
whither come the agricultural liti.
gants to settle their disputations
which enrich the country lawyers
and give them reputations that
sometimes lift them into the halls of
legislation, or, perchance, into the
The St le.
"These court houses are nearly all
built alter the Romanesque stvle of
architecture, surmounted by impos
ing square towers. A few 'counties
have set the pace at the quarter mil.
lion dollar mark, and hereafter every
county that erects a new court house
will bardly be willing to go below
that ligure. It is also a fact that the
World's fair gave an impetus to or
nate architecture that is manifesting
itself to a marked degree in public
buildings of nil classes. Time was
when many counties in Illinois and
Indiana were content to commit their
valuable records to old, abandoned
meeting houses and other architec
tural mikeshifts. Hut today the
thrifty farmers cf the common
wealth make their pilgrimages to
the county scat and pay their taxes
and have their deeds recorded in
handsome edifices of stone, marble
and iron, whoso architectural pro
portions typify the dignity, solidity
and wraith of the agricultural com
munities." The Armenian Massacre.
Uev. K. II. Mallarian, n native of
Armenia, will speak Sunday morn
ing at the First M. K. church on the
Armenian question. He will use a
map to locate the prominent citie
and the spots where the crimes were
perpetrated. Mr. Mallarian is a
very bright young man, and speaks
the English language admirably.
All will bo greatly delighted in his
talk. He is in this country prepar
ing himself for mission work. There
fore a collection will be taken at the
close of the lecture to aid him in his
studies. In the evening he will
speak in Moline at the M. K. church.
