THE COURSE OF CARSE
Donor of the Waterworks
Was Not Pleased.
LONG IN BECOMING SATISFIED
Recollections of a Citizen
Who Knew Mr. Cable.
Record of Indifference That
Has Been Passed Upon.
I noticed by the Union a few
a ays ago," said a resident in conver
sation with an Arocs representative,
'that considerable stress ia placed
on Mr. Cable, the donor of the wa
terworks building, being pleased
with the work done by Mayor Carae
at that time in the matter of the pur-
chase of the new $25,000 pumping
machinery. Now, the fact is that I
know the exact contrary to be true,
for I heard Mr. Cable' view from
hia own lips, and he said, to me thu
after he made the offer to bear the
expense of removal and construction
of the works, amounting in all to
$25,000, it required weeks and even
months for him to satisfy himself
that the matter was being properly
managed, and that the removal and
all that pertained to it wonld be con
ducted as it should be. That he was
major at that time was a mere cir
cumstance. Mr. Cable came volun
tarily to the city's relief and gave it
one of its greatest blessings, but as
far as Mr. Carse is concerned, his
official relations to Mr. Cable in the
transaction d d not really hasten the
reformation that came, so much as
to retard it. as Mr. Cable was not
pleased with his course of procedure.
"Now as far as the purchase of the
engine is concerned, any one who was
familiar with the aitnation at that
time will remember that the trans
ection was opposed in the counctl
because the same engine had been
offered to both Moline and Daven
port at a less amount of money
$20,000, I think was tbe purchase
price named to the other cities,
whereas Rock Island paid $27,000,
and at a higher rate of interest too.
and it was these circumstances that
annoyed and displeased Mr. Cable at
me time. xne names of Carse.
Cramer and Lundy were alwavs as-
nutiBieu iu mj waterworks engine
purchase, and it was considered an
evidence of weakness on Mr. Corse's
part that he should have permitted
himself to become so identified."
Was Too Emr u Mayor.
Mr. Carse's entire record was one
of laxity and indifference that
Drought down upon him tbe repre
hension of the people that found ex
pression in their ballots, not only at
the time of his enforced retirement
from office, when he was a candidate
for reelection upon his record, but a
few years alter just 10 years ago
now when he again ma'naged to
secure the nomination, and was again
repudiated at the polls. It was dur
ing his incumbency of the offioe
of mayor that the only scandal that
has ever disgraced the management
of municipal affairs happened, in the
apprehension and conviction of the
snperintendent of waterworks of
embezzlement, and it was during
the same regime that the street su
perintendent filled private lots at the
city's expense, both these evidences of
the lack of executive power being so
ireeiy conuemnea that Mr. Carse
suffered when he came up for elec
tion afterward for the misconduct of
his appointees. The ereatest source
of complaint affecting Mr. Care's
administration was hia unconcern
relative to tbe manner in which the
various departments of the munici
pal government were conducted.
The same argument was advanced
against him when he sought to re
gain me cnatr a lew years after, and
will be applied now even with more
emphasis than before, for if Mr.
Carse did not evince the capacity
that was expected to govern the citv
properlv 15 years ago, how much
more satisfactorily will he direct its
affairs now that it has doubled in
pepulatibn, adopted a metropolitan
system in all its various depart.
ments, and risen to the plane where
duties exact and salary warrants the
greater part of the executive; time.
