has there before been snch reasona

part of property holders and citizens
generally. People ' going out to
church realized this yesterday.
Those attending both Trinity and the
First M. E. churehes. on Nineteenth
street, and consequently on a paved
street, found in some instances the
thoroughfare as bad as It was before
thev had any pavement. btickr
mud several inches thick covered '
the surface of the brick, and it was
necessary to drive or tramp through
it in order to reach the different
houses of worship. And Nineteenth
street is not the only one which is iu
such condition. It is true of too
paved streets all over the city, espe-
ialiy ttose running norm auu

are all in bad shape, and the reason
that Nineteenth was noticud partic

this morning, "ibvy should have

Friday that we will not know that

And this gentleman voiced a com
mon complaint; The Aki.cs has
heard a dozen such since last Satur
day morning. People in all parts of
the o'.ty arc complaining, and from
the very appearance of things their
grievance is amply justifiable. The
probabilities are, however, that the

ow ners recently held a meeting at
which the matter was thoroughly
discussed. Nearly a'.l the cround on
the island is owned by the heirs of
the late E. W. Adams, and contains
about 240 acres, the amount required
by the hospital bill. It is claimed
that a dyke on the west and south

from water, and make it a capital
place for the location of such an in
stitution, access to the island bo'in-

ground will be sold at a vcrv low

ottering a site at a reasonable lignre.

The organisations of the three cities

participated in by business men and
artisans alike. Merchants and
manufacturers have always contrib

increased number of floats as com

Col. A. R. Ruflington, commandant
of Rock Island arsenal, has' issued
the following order regulating the
use of passes admitting transients to
Uock Island Auslxal, Ruck Isl
and, 111., Aug. 20, 1S95. Excursion
parties of any kind arc not admitted
into fiock Island arsenal on Sundays.
To admit them, in whole or in part,
under cover of hotel, business or
livery passes is inconsistent and
gives to the ucrellecting plausible
ground for complaint. Indeed, the
charge has been nude of collusion
between the arsenal and livery men.
Hereafter, livery passes and passes
issued ty hotels auil husiness houses
will not admit visitors, riding or
walking, into the arsenal on Sundays.
A. H. Ht FI INttTON,
Colonel of Ordnance, Commanding.
A Very t'dinalur Order.
The limitations thus placed on the
privileges of those visiting the gov
ernment works at Rock Island arse
nal will be receive 1 with general dis
favor in the tri-cities, as well as no
little surprise. In the first place the
arsenal is often a great objective
point to visitors who come to the
three cities to pass Sunday, who in
matiy cases have not tke opportunity
to visit it on other days, and to them
a quiet drive or walk about the
grounds of this wonderful place is a
source of great pleasure, as well as
instructive. In the second place,
the pass has not been regarded here
tofore nor will the average Ameri
can citizen be inclined to look upon
it now as a card of admission to
the government domain conferred by
sovereign authority. It has teen
a means of restricting those who en
ter to people who will properly con
duct themselves while there and will
appreciate, rather than abuse the
privileges accorded. 1 here have
been no instances that arc known of, or
people taking wrongful advantage of
any of the opportunities offered, and
surely it Is dillicult to imagine a
man cf Col. Bufiington's radical in
dependence of character bcingmoved
by any such absurd charges as col
lusion to which he refers.
The island is a part of the govern
ment's possessions and therefore be
longs to the people who are the gov
eminent, an t no oue should proper
ly be prohibited from visiting it
wheu they present the credentials of
good citizenship such as the pass af
