The citizens' committee feels that
little difficulty will be experienced In
raising the $3,000 necessary to erect
an appropriate emblem in Chippian
nock cemetery. Rock Island is one of
the few cities In the country that is
without a cemetery monument of this
description, and the movement is there
fore one that commends itself, not only
from a patriotic standpoint, but as
representative of the spirit of pride on
the part of the people.

OF CHURCH DEBT
Eev. W. J. Leach Feels
Ahead of Him at Spencer
Memorial Is Too Big.
$10,000 OBLIGATIONS DUE
Knew That Two Able Ministers Had
Failed to Raise Amount -Will
The fact that his church Is in debt
to the extent of nearly $10,000 and
with little prospects of making even a
email payment, is given by Rev. W. J.
Leach of the Spencer Memorial church
as the reason for his resignation, the
announcement of which, was made in
The Argus last evening. Rev. Mr.
Leach, who has been here only sev
eral months, knew when he was as
signed by the Methodist conference at
Peoria that the pastorate ahead of him
was not one for a man of leisure, but
he did not realize the magnitude of the
task until he was skuarely confronted by
it- He learned that his predecessors,Re v.
; Ke -ir.:uc ey ana Kev. r cnun, naa
both labored valiantly, but in vain, to
raise the church debt, and he felt that
if they had failed, he, too, would event
ually have to give up, and In justice to
himself he decided to give up the pas
torate to one who felt equal to it.
WILL. LE.IVE THE MIXISTRV.
I Accordingly at the Sunday evening
j service he apprised the official board
; of the fact that he had handed in his
! resignation to Superintendent Alesan
i dcr Smith and that it was his intention
to leave the ministry for a time at
least and become identified with a
Pekin. 111., newspaper in a journalistic
. capacity. He has not determined as
yet. but will probably apply for anoth
er charge when the Methodist confer
! ence m-ets next year.

Rev. Mr. Leach, although here only a
' short time, had made a host of friends
who will be disappointed at his de
cision to give up the burden that faced
him. Ho was one of the live wires of
