01 Jewish Woman, held an interest
ing meeting at the Standard club
yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Sol
llirscn, or Moline, vice president,
presided in the absence ot Mrs. L.
Simon, the president. Miss Cora
Flexner, of Davenport, read a paper
on "Benedict Spinoza," in which she
traced tne career ol that great Jew
ish philosopher from his birth to his
death, reviewing tne story of his life,
which was attended by much hard
ship and discouragement, the people
ui ii is uay BuuuiDg at bib uuerai in
l I l r i
clinations, excommunicating him
from their faith, and allowing him to
pass into oblivion, the appreciation
of his grand and noble works being
left to future generations, which
now hold him in estimation as one
of the greatest philosophers of an
cient times. Miss ilexner s paper
was nicely (rotten up ana clearly pre
miss fcisie Simon followed with a
piano solo, "The Pypsy Dance," her
artistic execution bringing forth the
generous plaudits of her listeners.
Mlaa Hnllln Speaks.
The place originally assigned to
Mrs. Frederick Schwatka, who was
unavoidably absent, was filled by
Miss Ida C. Hultin, pastor of the Uni
tarian church, Moline. Miss Hultin
is an eloquent and forcible talker.
She said she had been attending the
.national woman's suffrage associa
tion at Ue9 Haines thn nrevmna
week, and she felt that it would be
no more than appropriate that 6he
dwell a short time on the cause of
the gentler sex. Miss Hultin said
that women are not asking for more
than they are entitled to when thev
seek to stand side bv side with their
husbands and brothers and assist ia
conducting the affairs of the city,
state and nation. Before being men
and women, Miss Hultin held, we
are human. No one denies that
home is woman's sphere, but equally
they should believe that it is man's
sphere. Home is the beginning
place. Because she ia mother and
wife is no reason why woman should
be kept in ignorance of what is trans
piring in the community and coun
ty. Miss Hultin further declared
Ihat should not prevent her from
doing a duty which she owe to
borne and self. She has children;
iney would not always be at home.
She should understand the mental
and moral makeup of her child, and
likewise of the community into
which he or she will eventually en
ter, mat sue may be able to direct as
a mother should.
Miss Hultin said the women of all
denominations and beliefs are unit
ing with one another, and sympathiz
ing who eacD oiner in a aemana to
exercise the rights which they are en
titled to with reference to shaping
the affairs of their city and country.
Woman is learning now to love her
neighbor. And it is now becoming
to be men and women not men

THE BRIDGE RELIEF BILL.
Text ef the M
The Arccs is in receipt of a copy
of the bill introduced in the house at
Washington for the repeal of the
chapter of the statutes ot the United
States, which was passed by the
Fifty-third congress which requires
that the lower portion ot the Rock
Island bridge shall not be occupied
oy the xriHJity tutu way company
without paying rent therefor. It is
gratifying to note in the same con
nection that the matter haa been
placed in isuch a convincing light
before Gen. D. W. Flagler, chief of
ordnance, that he haa made a recom
mendation to the secretary of war
regarding a favorable report on the
elimination of the clause and the
reaching of an agreement with the
street car company, whereby In lieu
of power for the operation of the
draw, the company is not to be taxed
ior crossing the bridge. Gen. Flag
"The subject of charging the Tri
City Street Railway company a rea
sonable rental for the use of the
Rock Island bridge has received much
consideration within the last two
years, and many arguments on the
tubject have been presented to this
uepartment, several of which have
been communicated to the secretary
oi war, especially wnue he was con
siaenng the subject of the amount
of rental that should be charged.
After a careful consideration of the
whole matter. I deem it mv dutv to
make the following recommendation:
I be commanding officer of the Rock
Island arsenal, in reports on this
subject, states: The electric power
iu operate tne uaw can oe Tarnished
by the street railway company from
its line now on the bridge, and this
company will enter into either
a yearly or a perpetual con
tract, as may be deemed ad
visable, with the commanding
olhcer of this arsenal to furnish the
power in parment as rental for cross
ing the bridge In accordance with
the act of congress.' The draw of
the new bridge has an electric dyna
mo, ana its construction requires
electric power for its operation As
the street railway company has in its
lines crossing toe bridge tbe neces
sary power for operating the draw,
tne expense to that company of al
lowing the United States to draw
from the company's lines enough
power to operate tne draw occas
ionally would be very little I am in
formed about fG'JO per anaum. The
cost to the United States of erecting
..... . .
a special piant oi such capacity as to
furnish the amount of power required
occasionally, and of .maintaining and
updating mis separate piant, it is
esiimatea, wouia do six times as
much. It will be understood
that tbe cost of adding the small
amount to so large a power,
which would permit drawing- off
from the same occasionally, involve
nine expanse; wnereas a speiisl
plant would have to ba large enough
to furnish the maximum amount of
power occasionally. It appears,
therefore, to ba a verv reasonable
thing to permit or require the com
pany to furnish this power, which is
a small matter in comparison with
the value of the franchise the com
pany enjoys. I therefore recom
mend that the railway company be
renuveu irom a piyment of rental,
and that, instead of the enactment
of the bill returned herewith as pro
posed, the bill bs so amended or
changed as to relieve the company
from the payment of rental, but to
require the company to furnish the
necessary power as described."
A dispatch from General Man
ager Lardner received at The
Argus office this afternoon, states
that the bill for the adjustment of
the bridge toll as it affects the Tri
City Railway company passed the

The Chicago Chronicle of today de
votes a page to a review of the judi
cial Bituauou oj Qistncts through
out the state, and that of the Tenth
circuit is sired up from the Gales
burg end, from which city the status
of the matter ia set out to be as fol
lows: There will be a new deal in the
candidatea for circuit ludgea in thia
circuit thia spring. Judge Glenn, of
aionmoutn, wuo has served so ac
ceptably for SO years and never had
opposition of any kind, is a candi
date for re-election. Judge BSgelow
will probably not make the race. He
is hesitating about the announce
ment, and it is shrewd Iv anrmianil
that if "he ia made to believe that he
can be nominated he will consent.
This coyness is likely to defeat him.
Judge Pleasants, of Rock Island,
who has been on the bench continu
ously for 30 years, bas become too
old to perform the duties of the office
and will retire. Judge James H
Connell, of A'edo; George W. Thomp
son, of this city, and Judge Jack
son, of Rock Island, are at present
ths only candidates for the two
piares, Judge Glenn's nomination
being conceded. Democratic candi
dates stand so- poor a show that extra
inducements are necessary to get
tnree oi mem to nu tne ticket."
Thia review of the situation con
tains many inaccuracies, the first of
which, is as to iuage rieasants' re
tirement, for as far as tha mmlwn
of the bar here are concerned, and as
far as the jurist's own inclinations
