prospects tor the com

man should, in the fast place, post
himself better b.-ifnre talking, and if
he cafrtains the iden he says he :
does, he should above all places not ex-
press thm in lnveiport. Hiwevor,
the Sixih warder is net familiar with
all that is in tho air, for Bock Island
never presented a better outlook
than sb dnes this year. But to Ken
nedy's views. To a Davenport re
porter he said, sp akiog pf Rock Isl
and: "I cannot say that the pro: -pects
for buiMin operations are
very bright. There seems to be very
little indication of home building.
The bailding and loan associations
arc unable to dlspco of their funds
nn an investment basis, and have de
cided to pay eff maturing stock as
well as considerable that is not yet
really due. The fact cannot be dis-
nutcd that there is plentv of monev '
in tho country, and people do no't
have to borrow as thev were want
do in days recently gone by."
He then talked war. "Person
ally," said he, "I am of the same
opinion now that I had in the start.
I do not think the Maine was blown
up by accident, nor do the majority
of the people think so. Thcro is oi.e
particular thing I have noticed.
Where I have ocatiun tn call at
shoos where workmen aro entrazed I
have heard the men whist'ing pa -
triotic airs, such as 'Marching
Through Georgia.' and the iike, in
f ict war and patr otic sentiment rill
the air everywhere."
Speaking of improvements in our
citv 1 might say that the new filter
plant, which we are going to build,
has caused wide-spread interest and
which was the subject of in extended
article In a London engineering jour-
nal recently. Tho city bought 25
acres t.f land back on the bluffs, and
when tho reservoir and filter plant
will ha-e been completed we will get
onr pressure from the hill the same
as Davenport. We ate going to
como;ne all the best points of tho
many alter systems into one. Ours '

The re- ervlr will be arched over and
then covered with sand. The water
will then be pumped in upon the
sand and al:ood to filter down

will be delivered to the consumers.
This system wiil cost the city of
