Discussion of Rock Island Round
house Removal Sus
tained. BEPSISEHTATTVE CITIZEN'S VIEWS,
Matter Ought to be Taken
at Once With Leading
The suggestions appearing in last
evening's AK'irs, anent the rumors of
the possibility of the Cock Island road
moving a portion of Us division head
quarters from this citv to Kast M
line, have met with many expressions
oi approbation from all classes of
business men. A representative citi
zsn, tiJkincr of the matter last even
ing, remarked: "I am glad to see the
discussion of this matter, and hope
mat our citizens generally will give
the subject attention and use their
influencu to prevent Rock Island being
deprived of any of the present advant
age. I believe this is a subict that
should be taken up with U K. Ca
oic. who is now once moie a res
ident of this citv, and who
know has a mo.-t kindly interest in
th city and all that pertains to its
interests and advancement. Certain

ence with the Rock Islatid than he. if
he could be prevailed upon to exercise
it. 1 have been told that Mr. i aole
has always hopid that the company
would provide a new passenger sta
tion here, but has felt some dehcac
about making a move in that direction

And lefore long the lvick Island is to

So iba'., all things considered, the
company ought, in justice to Rock

I think therefore that if this subject
was brought before Mr. Cable, who is
still chairman of the executive com

and the other ollicers, there would be
a disposition to treat the city fairly,

GUN CARRIAGE CONTRACT.
Kepreeentattvea In Concrot Try lot
Land It for Rock Island Ar.enal.
Since thelctter from Senator Mason.
regarding the proposed government
contract for the purchase of gun car
riages to the amount of half a million
dollars, which the tri-city business
men are endeavoring to divert to
Rock Island arsenal. Secretary W. A.
Jones, of the Moline Business Men's
association, has received the letters
regarding the matter from A. F. D.tw-
Ison, Senator Allison s private secre
tary, and from Senator Sue! by M
Culloni. The latter writes: will
'see the secretary of war on the sub
(jectofthc manufacture of gun car
riages and shall be glad indeed if the
whole contract can be turned over to
Rock Island arsenal, and sincerely
hope some may go there, at any rate."
Mr. Dawson, noting the absence of
Senator Allison from the capital, says:
I will lay your letter before the sen
ator on his return, and beg to assure
you that he will be very glad indeed
to do what he can in the interest of
the Rock Island arsenal." These let
ters indicate that all that is possible
will be done to accomplish this very
desirab!e end. The amount involved
in the contract is as large as that
asked for the entire equipment of the
small arms plant and it would be folly
for the government to allow this
amount to ge to private lirais when it
has every appliance at hand to manu
facture the articles here.
