.The American Hone--Other siub
Jects. TheUock Island County Farmers' In -stituta
had an exceedingly interesting
and well attended meeting at Milan yes
terday. President Camp jell presided.
The morning session watt opened with
prayer by Rev. Kerr, and the first paper
called up was that of Mr. M. L. Swlsber,
of Coe, on "The County Organization."
Mr. Swisher was emphatically in favor
of the maintenance of lh present syso
tern of supervisors. He held that the
commissioner system had a tendency to
centralization, and that coder It the in
tereita of the county were too apt to be
concentrated in one part.cular locality,
wielding the greatest v fluence. The
township organization, Mt. Swisher held,
was founded upon the pr nciple of local
self government, the first position taken
by the founders of the rapublio. With
such a system all intereata were rep
resented, and all interests had a
voice and were protected and provided
for. He olaimedtoo, that as a matter of
fact, the sapervisor systeti was more ex
pensive than the commissioner system.
L ist year the cost of running the board
was $1,600; with a coma iesioner system
one good man could no: be secured for
less than f 300 and with three the salary
item alone would be H.400. With a
commissioner system rtmote localities
would not be properly represented. Say
there are three commissioners; Rock Isl
and would have to have one, Moline one,
and the other would have to go either to
the upper or the lower et d of the county.
In this connection Mr. Swisher referred
to the proposition to bav ) the county as
sume the Milan bridges. He did not think
the county ahould, but order the commis
sioner system they might be shouldered
off on the county anyway. All parts of
the county could not be represented in a
commissioner system, unless the number
of commissioners was increased to five
and this could not be dene without in
creasing the expense. Mr. Swisher's
paper was discunsad by all present, all
sustaining Mr. Swishers views except
one, who upheld the commissioner plan
on the ground that it provided for a
smaller body which might more easily
and with less friction discharge its dutie6
and thus agve time and expense. The
sentiments of the meeting favored the
present supervisor plan.
The first subject that came up at the
afternoon session was i'.r. Arthur Bur
rail's paper on the "National Horse ot
America." Mr. BuTall had prepared an
excellent article on the very interesting
topic and h&ndled It in a thoroughly able
manner, lie first define 1 what he meant
by the American horse. It is not, ho
said, the heavy draushi aorse which are
progeny of the ClydeadiJe and Norman
stock, which are of mote recent origin
The distinctly American borse is really
the progeny of the imported borse, Mes
senger, which, through development bad
given to the race peculiar traits, the
principal of which ar3 trotting speed
endurance and general easy freedom of
action. Mr. Burrall's ilea was that for
general all-around purp 9es, for farmers'
use, for ordinary won, the American
horse of good form and weighing from
1,100 io 1,800 pounds was superior te the
immense horses which ate being bred now
for the market, and weighing front 1,600
to 1,800 pounds, while the latter might
be desirable probably for heavy work.
He said the prevailing notion that a stan
dard bred borse was of ii special use only
upon the turf was a mistaken one; it was
only by severe turf testn that the peculiar
excellencies and persistence of a strain or
breed was demonstrated, and that while
an oecssional one mlgt t develop a two
and one-half minute guit, the real value
consisted in the excellence-produced in
the great number that wre cot so fast,
but still possessed the traits of the strain
to such an extent as to be superior for all
around work to the hee vy horses, or to
those small horses in vhlcb no care had
been taken to perpetrate or develop any
one or more desirable q ualitlea. He gave
statistics of the money value of the
horses of the United 8 ates, of the cum-
ber and value in seven 1 individual states,
and showed that Illinois owned one thir
teenth of the horses in the United States.
He also gave statistics of several sales of
standard bred trotting Worses in whloh the
average price ranged up into several
hundreds of dollars. After reading the
paper be answered questions for fully flf
teen minutes, and ther. followed an ani
mated discussion, from which a spectator
might have thought tho Norman borse in
terest at one time entirely pervaded the
institute, while at another that the general
sentiment wai that the Norman and
Clydesdale were bred very much as
thoroughbred cattle for the amount of
beef into which they night be converted.
W. S. McCulloch rtad a fine paper on
"Miscellaneous Faming,'' followed by
discussion, and In the evening the "ques

instructive exchange cf views of general

KNIGHTS OF P.YTUIAS.
Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of the
Order YVaterday Bethtaa; About
Yesterday was the twenty-fifth anni
versary ot the order of the Knights of
Pythias, and it was generally observed in
some manner throughout the United
States. Bi. Paul lodge, of this city, will
observe the event tonight with a spread
after the regular meeting adjourns.
There was a time when the natal day
of the Knights of Pythias was a matter
of dispute, but now it Is a settled and es
tablished fact that the organization of the
first lodge took place on the 18 h day of
February. 1864, In the city of Washing,
ton, the order being founded by Justus
H. Rathbone. The evidenco of that
fact, given here as a scrap of interesting
history, was in 1876 considered by the
st'preme lodge, which, hailing Mr. Rath
bone as the founder, established an office
-of that name in the supreme lodge, the
office to rile with the present incumbent.
SKETCH OF THE ORIGINAL ORDER.
The original meeting at which the rit
ual of the order of Knights ot Pythias
was first road and the initial steps taken
to establish the order was held in the
room of Robert A. Champion, S69 F
street. Washington, D. O., the evening
of Feb. 16, 1864 There were present on
that occasion: J H. Rathbone, Robert A.
Champion. D. L Burnett, E 8. Kimball.
W. H. Burnett, Charles n Roberts and
Mr. Driver, member (with the exception
of Mr. Champion) of a vocal society
called the Arion Glee club. At a prior
meeting of the glee club Mr Rathbone
had stated to these gentlemen that he had
in his possession the ritual of a secret
society which he had written in the win
ter of 1860-61, while teaching school at
Eagle Harbor, Michigan, on Like Super
ior, and which he whs now desirous of
ushering into existence. Mr Champion,
who had read the ritual, was s rongly in
favor of it and advocated miking it a
mutual protective association among de
partment clerks, but action was deferred
until the meeting above mentioned.
After the usual vocal exercises Messr9.
Roberts and Driver withdrew to keep a
prior engagement. Mr. Rathbone then
produced bis ritual and a small bible.eacb
man present being sworn to secrecy as to
It was resolved that each gentleman
present invite such of bis fellow clerks as
be deemed would be acceptable to join
with the club In forming the order. More
commodious and suitable quarter were
secured in Temptrai.ee Hall building on
E street, and at this phce the club met
on the following Friday evening.
At the meeting held Feb. 10, 1664.
owing to the lateness of the hour, only
the opening and closing ceremonies and
initiatory (now firs') degree were
read. The second and

was Culled to the chair on proposal of J.
K. Rathbone, afur which the latter
slated the ohjpct of the meeting to be the
organinntlon or f jundaium of a society,
its business and operations to be of a
secret character, having for its ultimate
object friendship, charity and benevo
lence. Before proceeding further those
present were rt-queMcd to subscribe to an
oath laid down nfterwsrd in the initia
tory. All present having ignlflt)i their
willingness to do o the same was admin
istered to them by J. II. Rathbone read
ing the same. After the taking of the
oath on motion it was resolved that the
order be etvled "The Knights of Pythias "
A committee was appointed to preptre
a ritual of opening end closing a lode
and of Initiation into the same. The
chair appointed J. H. Ribbono, who re
ported a ritual, which, on being read, was
adopted. An election of officers was held
with the following result: J. H. Raibbone,
worthy chancellor; Joel R. Woodruff
wortbv vice-chancellor; Joseph T. K.
Plant, venerable patriarch; D L. Bur
nett, worthy scribe; George R. Covert,
assistant scribe; A. Van Dtr Veer.
worthy banker; R. A. Champion, assis
tant banker. Several appointed offices
were filled and committees named on
some ritual work in the first (now second)
degree, signs, regalias, appliances, etc
Subsequent meetings were held regularly.
un April vi Mr. Katbrtone tendered his
resignation of both office and member
ship, which waa accepted, though the
printed reoord assign no cause for such
action. The vacancy was tilled by V. u
Burnett. These, practically, are all the
authenticated facts in connection with the
origin of the order and what little there
was of history to its early existence.
Electrie Car on Bridge a.
It is understood that one of the chief
obstacles to the operation of the cars on
the Holmes' syndicate lines by electricity
at present is the belief that it would be
impossible to run the bridge cars because
of the barrier presented by the draw span
of the government bridge, which must
open and close a docen to twenty times a
day, often, in the season of navigation
But if it opened but once a day, that
would be sufficient for the prevention of
the use of e'.ectrio motors.
But they have solved this problem on
the Bowdoin and Harvard Square line in
Boston . The road crosses the West Bos
ton bridge, which has a double-swing
draw. The moving of the electric cars
across that draw iu such manner that they
would run as well on it as on the s'pans
on either side was a troublesome matter,
but it has been overcome. A cable has
been ran under the water from one side
to the other of the draw opening, and
connection made with the trolley wire on
each side. Another cable connects the
track wires on the two sides. Still an
other cable makes connection with the
trolly wires on the draw itself, an auto
matic switch of peculiar construction and
design openin? and c)osmg the circuit as
the draw is closed or open. In order to
keep the short trolley wire on draw taut,
a specially constructed double truss of
iron, instead of cross wires, extends from
one side of the railway to the other at
each of the draw but that would be un
necessary on the Rock Island bridge as

supports of which the wires could be

IMPROVING THE STREETS.
Paving to be Put In Bat th Question
1, What Rind I The Ceaneil'n At
titude and Opinion ot Property Hold
!. A portion, at least, of the most impor
tant thoroughfares of the city will be
paved the coming season, but the question
that is agitating the minds of property
holders is, what sort of material shall be
used! There is a prevailing sentiment
among property holders along Second
avenue that the thoroughfare, or least so
much of it as is included between Twen
tieth and Fifteenth street should be paved
and the popular desire seems to be nnly
that the right and proper ma
terial should be used. This point
can only be satisfactorily settled
by canvassing the property holders
and gaining their expressions. This duty
would in the opinion of the A rocs props
erly devolve upon the Citizens' Improve
ment association, with whom the project
originated, and which organization is
very likely to take an important part in
progressive movements affecting the

ers affected, setting forth the kind of
material desired before ordering the work
Since there la a conflict of sentiment as
to the material that is to be used a fair
proposition was made this morning
which is one that commends itself as af
fording a way out of the difficulty. It is
that the council order the four sides of
Union square paved, each with the dif
ferent kind of material considered one
side with granite, one with cedar blocks,
one with brick and oae with Cyprus
blocks. Mr. O. J. Dimlck will petition
(he council at tho next meeting to pave
the south side with whatever material it
seems best. Mr. H. J. Lowrey will at
the same time ask that the west side be
paved with Cyprus blocks, and this will
leave the Second and Third avenue and
Twentieth street aides to be paved with
granite, cedar blocks and brick.
This plan if adopted will afford abun
dant opportunity to test the various kinds
of material contemplated and to decide
which is to be used on the more impor

made to stop, and the train went through
Moline shrieking and passed through
Rook Island keeping up the same racket;
and it was fully a half hour after it got
to Davenport before the calliope could be
