"The sooner Uock Itland and other
'communities of its population adopt
civil service in their lire and police de
partments the better it -vx ill bp for
tho.se cities," remarked Mayor WilHam
McConochie today in discussing the
movement that has been inaugurated
looking to the presentation of a peti
tion signed by the requisite icrcenta"ge
of the voters here, asking that a pro
position be submitted at the forth
coming municipal election.
"As is known generally, our lire de
partment has been virtually .under
civil service since its establishment.
There are numerous reasons for"' fa
voring civil service, and, to my mind,
the chief one is that it places thise
departments above politics, and al
lows a mayor pport unity to attend
t; the business of the city instead of
Ibtening to the claims of applicants
and those wishing their appointment.
Personally, it woul.J better have pleas
ed me had I not hr.d a single nomina
tion of a city employe to iiave made
when elected to office last spring.
Naturally, one placed in office must
first consider his friends those who

tiMs4y ttfettvired ti give the city an
efficient and' uniform police force;
but have tio hesitancy in statin!? lhat
had the men been chosen after an
examination before a non-partisan
commission doubtless there' would
have been improvement. The men
composing this bo'ar.l should be men
of education and business training;
who would consider an applicant pure
ly from the standpoint of merit, his
polities, above all. not to be weighed."
Chief Miller is Opposed.
Chief Phil Miller clings to the old
idea that "to the victor belongs the
spoils." lie is against civil service.
and offers in defense of his position
men disqualified physically or other
wise are retained after the adoption
of civil service, the law providing that
nil members of a department who
have been in the serie for one year
prior to change shall be allowed to
continue without submitfinj; to the
formality of an examination. "If the
law said that the whole force should

The petitions are in circulation in
different parts- of the city nnd all
called upon should affix their signa

shall stand on his phj'sioal and mental

a vote-getter. It means a fine body of
ollicers and lire laddies who will tend
to their knitting and not bother them
selves with polities.

Work i n the bridge between Water

By v Friend of
The fol'.c wing is a contribution' to
the Western Christian Advocate:
"Twenty-one years ago three little
children were suddenly bereft of fath
er and mother they were friendless'
and homeless; but it was only one of
the many similar instances happening
every day only three little children
left friendless and homeless; that was
all. But it was a crucial moment in
at least one life. Rev. .1. G. Lemen was
at that time pastor f a large churc-h
in Council Bluffs, la. This man. whose
heart was large enough to find a place
for every unfortunate one, took these
children into his own home, where
they shared the same loving, tender
care that was bestowed uion his own
little 'ones. It was not long before lie
learned of other children who had
l.een left to the cold mercies of a sel
fish world. Moved with compassion,
he took these also, to his already
overcrowded home. Then came the
test; money was needed. He had a few
thousand dollars which he had saved
up for a rainy day. He little knew
what the Master had in store for him;
but he was obedient, and when the
news came that other little helpless
ones hai been left alone, fatherless
and motherless, with no one to care
for them, and the commund came to
take these also, to the ordinary man.
with his house filled to overflowing
and a large congregation looking to
him to be fed spiritually, it would
have seemed like an impossibility:
not so. however, with this man; it
was enough for him to know that bis
Master approved of it and bid him to
do it. Arf he stepped out tiHn his
promises and obeyed the command to
TWO FERRIES HERE
T. J. Robinson to Have Running
Mate the Coming
KAHLKE BEOS. THE BUILDEES
Sew Craft Will be Stern-Wheeler
and Will Cost $2o
Two ferries are to be operated here
the coming summer, Capt. M. L. Hen
derson, acting for the Rock Island
Davenport Ferry company, today en
tering into a contract with Kahlke
Bros, for the construction of a stern
wheel steamer to be completed duly 1.
She will cost $20,000. will he 110 feet
long. 20-foot beam an 1 IK-foot hold.
There are to be two boilers, each 18
feet long, with 42-inch shells and 10.6
ineh flues. The engines, nf which
there are to be two. will have ! 4-inch
pistons, with a 3-foot stroke.
The cabin will be forward, and there
will be accommodation for six teams
between the boiler room and the
cabin. When both boats are placed
in commission there are to be seven
minute trips between the two cities.
The T. J. Robinson has been making
the round trip in 15 minutes, but it
was found it was not able to give as
quick service as the public demanded.
The new craft will have a speed of 15
knots an hour, will be modern in all
respects nnd one of the finest ferries
on the Mississippi. It will be electric
lighted throughout and every con
venience for the comfort of patrons
afforded. The name has not yet been
Kobfnaon Made Good as New.
The Robinson, repainted, overhauled
and looking like new, will emerge
from winter quarters as soon as the
ice goes out. Capt. Henderson says
when the new boat is started Rock
Island and Davenport will have a ferry
service not surpassed by any cities
along the big river.

Larger quarters became necessary,

"From a small beginning, 21 years
ago, the Christian Home has grown
until now about 215 children are cared
for there, and 2,000 have been placed
in good christian families. The real
estate consists of about 25 cottages,
and other buildings, all owned by an
organization which has been formed
through the efforts of Mr. Lemen with
a view of making it a permanent or
ganization. Mr. and Mrs. Lemen have
been blessed with four lovely children
three sons anil one daughter. All of
them take great delight in the work of
the home, and on them, no doubt, the
mantle of their father and mother will
fall. The oldest son is giving his en
tire time to this work also.
"The scrupulous neatness and order
that pervades the entire institution,
the loving salutation of 'Hello, papa!'
that rings out from every quarter as
he passes about the grounds, and the
remarkable executive ability he dis
plays in all the management of the
affairs of the home, 'are sufficient to
impress every visitor that it is no or
dinary man who has been called to
this great and noble work. Childrer.

globe, and have the best possible
are and training. You. my readers,
whoever yon may be. may have a
part in this granil work. It is a labor
rf love in behalf of all homeless, suf
fering children everywhere. The
children are frequently adopted bv
christian people, but are never allow
ed to go from the home excepting in
to christian families who are properly
vouched for. The Christian Home i
non-sectarian, but is heartily indorsed
and supported by all denominations.
It takes children from every state,
and is not a local affair, but belongs
to the world.
"We have given this brief descrip
tion of the 'Christian Home" with the
hope that all who read it will become
interested in its welfare. If you have

to u-e for such purposes, send it 1
