FLEETING AT CLOSE
Special Session of Board of Su
pervisors Adjourns This
PRINTING OF PROCEEDINGS
Contract Awarded to Moline Paper
at $140 a Year Other
The business of the special meeting
of the county board of supervisors
was completed this afternoon. The
board adjourned at 3 o'clock.
The contract for printing the official
proceedings of the board for the ensu
ing year was awarded to the Moline
Journal. The bid was $11", the pub
lishers agreeing to print the proceed
fogs in the daily and weekly issues
and to send a copy of the latter to ev
ery taxpayer in the county. There
were six bids received. Heretofore it
has been the custom of the board to
have the proceedings printed in one
Rock Island papor and one Molint
Duftfa Elevator Cunduetor.
George Duffin, of this city, was elect
ed elevator conductor at the county
building to succeed Carl R. Clough,
who resigns after filling the position
three years. There were three appli
cants for the place, but Duffin receiv
ed the unanimous vote of the boards
Committee ITrtaanv Home Iteporf.
Following is the report in full of the
committee whose recommendations for
the county support of needy children
taken at the Bethany Home yesterday
was adopted by the board:
"We, your committee appointed at
the March meeting of the board of
supervisors for the purpose of investi
gating the proposition of the Bethany
Home association, would respectfully
"That we met March 23 and visited
the home of said association and ex
amined as to the manner of conducting
said institution and were very much
impressed with the necessity for the
maintenance of such an institution in
our midst; and would also reixrt that
we have investigated as to the liability
of the county in reference to children
which might be sent to said home by
different courts of this county, and find
that so far as we have been able to
learn the county is not liable for the
keep of such children at this institu
tion, but we also find thpf section 2
of chapter lt7 of the revised statutes
provides that where any poor or Indi
gent person docs not require to be sup
ported wholly by the county, the over
seer of th." poor may. subject to such
limitations as may be provided by the
county board, render temporary relief
without its being committed to the
"We would therefore recommend
that such children as are by the over
seer of the cities of Rrck Island and
Moline and of the supervisors of the
different townships of this county
found to be in need of temporary sup
port, and where said children can be
taken by said Association, that the
board authorize the overseers of said
cities and supervisors of the different
townships to extend such help for such
temporary relief as to this board may
seem just and right; and that as to
this amount we have in vestigated as
thoroughly as possible and would rec
ommend that said overseer and super-1
visors be allowed to extend aid not to i
exceed $1.75 per week per child, and ;
we would further recommend that said i
overseers and supervisors furnish said '
association an order for said amount at
