Hospital, Galesburg put np a good
and (air fight and had nothing to be
ashamed of. It is believed that Mr.
Eden was friendly to Galesburg. and
that if the governor bad permitted
the commissioners to arrive at their
own conclusions. Mr. Eden would
have decided in favor of Galesburg.
The delegation say that with the
governor feeling as he did. it would
buve done this city no good to have
offered $100,000 for the site. Week
ago there was a report that political
considerations had entered into the
light and that it made it desirable
that Kock Island should have the
asylum. But there is no use of cry.
ing over the matter now. Rock Isl
and is a good, square fighter and the
world loves such a one. The belief
obtains that all along the governor
iavorea Kock island.
'The trustees met afterward to
vote on the question of site. The
first vote was on Monmouth and all
three voted against Monmouth.
Then Mr. Medill voted for Rock Isl
and and Mr. Gale for Galesburg.
This left Mr. Eden to decide. He
was in a quandry, but elearly wanted
to favor Galesburg. At this point
the governor began to play his hand,
and he raised the water question,
asserting that on this there must ba
no doubt whatever. . Tha result of
his argument was that he influenced
Judge Eden to vote for Kock Island.
Thus the governor was practically
the deciding factor, and no donbt
would have been no matter what
course the trustees would have taken.
'The Galesburg contingent took
the defeat philosophically. Mr.
Medill congratulated them on having
made a clean and honorable fight.
The Monmouth folks were bitter.
They saw an offer accepted that was
128,000 less than theirs. The site
chosen is what is known as the
Watertown site and is eight miles
rrom Kock Island and three from
Down at Moamaolk.

on the governor and had a short con

of the trustees. The governor Ob

gave the committee to nnderstand
that he wanted the asylum at Rock

A Valuable Prescription.
Editor Morrison, of the Wortbing

Superintendent Ament argued on
the necessity of an additional teach
er in the High school again before
the board of education at its - regular
meeting last evening. The superin
tendent contends that the present
corps is not equal to the duties
which are gradually enumerating in
view of tho increasing attendance.
The question was submitted to a
vote alter quite a discussion and re
sulted in a contrary decision bv a vote
of 2 to S.
The board also authorized the pur
chase of a supplementary course of
re auTs, embodying literature, science
and history, to be distributed among
the scholars from the first to the
ninth grades. This is a deniraMe in
novation and will undoubtedly re
sult in much toward educating the
children on useful questions.
