The Levee Warehouse Question
Should Be Disposed of By
BUSINESS rJJTEEESTS SAY SO.
Give Away No Taloable Privileges to Any
One Corporation, Bat Let the City Con
sider the Commercial Requirement of
the City's Situation and Provide What la
The consensus of opinion among
the business men of Rock Island, as
reflected by the interviews published
in The Argus of Saturday, is that
Rock Island is in need of steamboat
accommodations on the river front,
and the majority of the shippers and
merchants alike believe that it is to
the interest of the city's commercial
welfare and the city generally that the
municipality should provide and con
trol the accommodations. The offers
made by the two short packet trade
companies, which are the ones that
tbe business men say are of most con
cern to them, indicate that an invest
ment of $2,000 there will yield at
least 15 per cent without considering
the Diamond Jo line, which wants the
whole thing? and a- slice of the levee
thrown in for 25 years at $1 per an
num on its own account, but which,
nevertheless, according to Supt. Kil
leen's statement, is willing to make
terms with the city for the use of a
warehouse erected by it.
Best Coarse to Pursue.
It is apparent to any mind, there
fore, that the best course fur the city
to pursue is to erect the warehouse,
if the prayer of the business men is
to be considered and one is to be pro
vided. It is the right course for
more than one reason. It is the only
way that the city can remain master
of the situation and at the same time
respond to the business interests of
the city. It is the ouly way for the
city to emphasize the principle of
municipal control of the investment
that has already been made in the
permanent improvement of the river
front. Beyond all this, the value of
a very small part of what the Diamond
Jo company seeks by lease for noth
ing is shown in the offers a'ready
made by tbe local packets to pay the
equivalent of 15 per cent on a reason
able investment lor warehouse privi
leges. . If the rights there will yield
such returns, why not the city as well
as any private corporation have the
benefit of them? Tfle city has the
money appropriated in regular and
proper form for the warehouse erec
tion, the amount of $2,000 having
been set aside in the last annual ap
The Practical Side.
Tun Akgcs, as has been said be
fore, entertained the hope at the out
set that it would not be necessary to
erect any warehouse on the new levee.
It was felt that the appearance of the
improved portion would be best pre
served by keeping all structures off.
But the levee is designed for utility as
well as beauty, and when a year's ex
perience demonstrated that the busi
ness interests of Rock Island were
suffering because of the absence of ac
commodations for the short trade
packets, whose patrons contribute
largely to the volume of the daily re
tail trade, the practical rather than
the sentimental view of the case sug
gested itself. The business interests
must be considered.
It was then suggested that a float
ing dock might afford a way out of
the difficulty. But the figures se
cured by the city with this end in
view and the views of steamboat men,
all contributed to the conclusion that
such a solution was impracticable
from the standpoint of expense, not
only as it involved the original invest
ment., but in the matter of mainten
ance. The declaration was made by
one experienced steamboat man that
the cost of a warehouse would be ab
sorbed once in two years in keeping
a floating dock in a proper state of re
pair to be serviceable. Notwithstand
ing all this, the assurance was of
fered last fall that a movement was on
foot looking to the providing of a
floating dock to the city through
funds raised by private subscription,
but so far this plan has not material
ized. It is now up to action.
The Time for Action.
Some months ago it was urged that
the council take the levee question
up and dispose of it, but it was re
tarded time after time by the protest
ations of those who have offered
nothing better, and hence procrastin
ation disastrous to the business wel
fare of the city has been the result.
The Akgcs isfor the business as well
as the general interests of Rock Isl
and. The business interests mean the
general interests. The majority of
the business men all over town ' are
favorable to the city building a ware
house on the levee, and there is no
reason for any further hesitancy in the
