Tow.. Coaeernln the Sit. and Financial
Jaeetlon Importance of the Matter.
That Roek Island will contribute
its influence and financial, support
toward ton movement to locate the
proposed Western Insane hospital
within the county borders was given
hearty expression by a number of
representative and energetic citizens
who gathered at the Kock Island Im
provement association rooms last
evening to discuss feasible prelimi
naries and a coarse of action. It the
pecuniary bcnelits to be derived from
an institution of this nature could be
fully realized by the county at large
the efforts of those striving with
the movement would not only be ap
preciated, but would, as they cer
tainly should, have the cooperation
o ercry individual with the advance
ment and upbuilding of the county
at heart. While the meeting was
largely attended and everything per
taining to the matter intelligently
discussed and action so far as prac
tical taken, there is much to be
done, and as it is a qncstien of gen
eral importance, the situation should
be grasped by everyone, who should
stand prepared "to do a share
toward anything materially assist
ing in the movement.
. Ttie Initial B:ep.
The initial step, in Hock Island
shows this city ready for action.
Last night's meeting was called to
order by W. P. Q, uayle, and W. B.
Ferguson called to the chair. C. '.
l.vnJe was made secretary. The ob
ject of the meeting was outlined by
the chairman, after which views of
many of the gentlemen present were
heard. The advantages to a commu
nity having such an institution were
fully illustrated by Mr. Quayle, who
enumerated the benefits vtbe la
borer, the merchant and the property-holder
to bo derived not alone
from the enhancement of land valua
tion, but principally from the enor
mous amount annually appropriated
for tho maintenance "of a hospital,
and the large sum, in the neighbor
hood of $000,000, to be expended in
its construction. So, too, would its
location here mean a saving of no
less than $1,000 annually to the
county in the transportation of its
insane patients. Mr. luavle spoke
of the favorable impression left by
Gov. Altgeld on the supervisors1
committee on its recent visit to the
capital, but ho, nevertheless, urged
action to shw that Rock Island
manifested interest in the matter.
Valuable, suggestions were also
made by C. F. LynJe, States' Attor
ney Searlc. Maj. J. M. Bcardslev,
William McEniry and E. II. Guycr.
On motion of C. J. Searle the chair
was instructed to appoint a commit
tee of three, of which the niavor
sbould be one, to cooperate with "the
Moline, Milan, supervisors' commit
tee.', ana any other like bodies ap
pointed by county towns, in a har
monious movement with the object
of bringing the prizo somewhere
within the county's borders. The
coraaiittee chosen is: Mavor B. V.

pro red and City Attorney Unas Molds
That the City Can Proceed and That
Contractors Will be Safe.
Much inquiry has naturally been
made as to the status of the Twelfth
street paving, and as to how long the
street is to be kept in its present
condition, which in some places is
practically impassable, a number of
vehicles having already been upset
and one citizen has sought damages
from the city in consequence.
There is no reason why the pav
ing operations should not go forward.
The new assessment roll will come
up iu 1 ne county court as soon as
Judge Adams returns, when City
Attorney Haas will aim to secure
immediate approval of the same.
Mr. Haas said this morning that
there was nothing to hinder the pro
gress of tho work and that the city
sooner or later in any event would
secure a court ruling in its favor,
and the contractors undertaking the
job would be perfectly secure. When
tho original assessment roll was
knocked out os legal technicalities
the Edwards & Walsh Construction
company surrendered its contract,
but the council has fully empowered
the mayor to enter into negotiations
with any contractors looking to the
putting "in of tho paving.
Ho Keaaoa fnr Delay.
As far as the proceedings in court
are concerned they need not hinder
construction work one iota, the prop
erty holders who have sought to i
terrupt the progress, relying, it is
quite evident, eutirely on delay, as
there is no ground for issue on" the
city's power to do the work as long
as its ordinances como in all re
spects within the provisions of the
law. Mr. Haas believes the present
ordinance will hold in the faee of all
attacks, and with this assuraneec it
seems that the city would be fully
warranted in going ahead with its
paving operations, which are a great
source of labor supply in Rock Isl
and, as well as providing a good
street in this instance where it is
Let the good work go on.
