COMMITTEE MAKES REPORT
ON THE ARSENAL SITUATION
LEARNS FROM COMMANDANT BLUNT CAUSE OF THE REDUCTION OF
THE FORCES AND THE PROSPECTS NEXT MOVE IS FOR TRI
CITY GENERAL MUNICIPAL COMMITTEE.
- The committee appointed at the
meeting of the Rock Island Club Wed
nesday night, of members of the club
and Retail Merchants' association, to
inquire into the situation at Rock Isl
and .arsenal, today made its report to
President E. H. Guyer, of the club, in
accordance with its instructions. It
reads as follows:
E. II. Guyer. President Rock Island
Club. Sir: The committee appointed
on Aug. 9 for the purpose of ascertain
ing the facts relative to the decrease in
the force of labor employed at the Rock
Island arsenal begs leave to report as
We called on Col. Blunt, and in reply
to our inquiries be gave us the follow
ing facts regarding the curtailment in
the number of men employed at the
The manufacture of equipments has
been continued at the arsenal since the
Spanish war on nearly a war basis in
order to accumulate a reserve stock,
as well as to supply the wants of an
army of Kto.OUO men, but a reserve
stock of equipments, to the extent
deemed desirable by the war depart
ment, has been about completed. The
result is that orders for certain equip
ments are limited to the needs of the
army of GO.000 men, and are, therefore,
very much curtailed as compared with
wljat they have been during the past
several years. As the reserves are still
further completed, we may look for
further reductions during the next few
years, unless emergencies not now an
ticipated should arise. The only work
lost by this arsenal on account of con
tracts made with private parties is
about forty field gun carriages, limbers
and caissons. The arsenal can manu
facture 80 complete carriages in one
year, and only about half of this num
ber have been ordered. At the present
time orders for others have been plac
ed with the Bethlehem Steel company,
and possibly other firms, in the carry
ing out of the policy of the war depart
ment, and for the following reasons:
In the time of the Spanish war the
arsenals of this conntry were not
equipped with machinery, nor had they
the trained artisans at their command
to supply munitions in the quantities
demanded by the situation, and had the
war been a larger affair this govern
ment might have found itself seriously
handicapped. It was also true at that
time that private individuals were not
equipped to manufacture the munitions
wanted by the government. It has,
therefore, been the policy of the war
department to award certain contracts
to private firms in order that these
firms may be equipped to man
ufacture certain munitions iu case
of war, that is, ammunition.

etc. These factories always have
in their employ large numbers of skill
ed men whose services are always im
mediately available in case of an emer
gency, providing the necessary machin
ery has been installed. The only way
to induce private firms to maintain in
condition the necessary equipment so
as to be able to aid the government in
case of an emergency is to give them
contracts for at least a part of the re
quirements of the government in time
of peace. This policy is one that is
followed by every European govern
ment and it has some very strong ad
vocates in this country, although, as
before stated, this particular arsenal
has only suffered to the amount of la
bor involved in the 4 0 gun carriages,
etc., above mentioned. So desirable
has this equipment of private manu
facturing concerns seemed to the war
department that contracts for the man
ufacture of large quantities of ammuni
tion have been given to private individ
uals, instead of the attempt being made
as In the past, to do all this work at
the Frankfort arsenal. It seems not to
be a question either of the cost of pro
duction or of quality, but simply a de
sire on "the part of the war department
to strengthen its position to obtain in
case of an emergency large quantities
of material in the shortest time, in or
der to do which the development of
more than one source of supply is ne
cessary. To get the war department
to change this policy would be very dif
ficult. Probably the only way it can
be done would be to bring the matter
before congress, and to do this with
any hope of success would entail an
exiK-nse of time and money which it is
doubtful we are able to make. How
this policy will affect work at the Rock
Island arsenal in the future we cannot
say, but from present indications we
Judge not seriously. The government
cannot be expected to make up a larger
reserve supply of munitions than Is
considered advisable and necessary by
those in authority, and as this Is the
main reason why there has been, and
will be, reductions in the force era
ployed at the arsenal, it would seem to
your committee that little is to be ac
complished at this time.
The capacity of the arsenal is great
er than is necessary to supply the
wants of the C0.009 men. comprising
the standing army of the United States
at present, and under the most favor
able circumstances (unless war can be
considered a favorable circumstance)
it cannot employ the same amount of
labor in the future that has been em
ployed there la the past.
The importance of the arsenal as a
factor in the life of this community is
recognized by all, and we feel that its
development during the last fe-w years
