Put Merger Up to People. Mollne
aldermen in session as a committee
of the whole, voted to take no action
on the resolution favoring a merger
of Moline and East Moline. They all
expressed themselves as favoring the
resignation of one of Mollne's four
commissioners to be elected April
4 in favor of a man from East Mo
line, and satisfactory to the people of
that city. East Moline aldermen, In
vited to attend the meeting for Joint
discussion with Moline aldermen of
the merger resolution, did not attend.
Their attitude In the matter is that It
Is up to the Mollne council to take tie
initiative in the matter; expression
of Mollne aldermen is that they should
not have Ignored the invitation, that
in a joint discussion lay a possibility
for adjustment of differences. Some of
the commissioner nominees have said
that, regardless of their individual de
sire In the matter, they cannot enter
into an agreement to resign in fair
ness to their constituents. It has
been suggested that the matter be
left entirely to the people. Whether
such a plan as has been suggested is
feasible, or whether it will be at
tempted, has not been decided. The
suggestion is that petitions be placed
in circulation asking for a vote of the
people on the merger proposition.
