TUE CHANGE OF THE CAPITAL.
Other Paper Arltate the qaeatlaa
f a ligation af the Natteaal Meat
f fciaveraaieat Arcameats.
The Burlington Hawkeye has nearly a
column article beaded "Capital Remov
al!" which gives good and strong reasons
for the removal of the capital from the
banks of the Potomac to somft place near
the center of the union, and says "the
only real argument against removal is
simply inertia. That is to say things are
as they are because they are. That, of
course,' is fatalistic, and is not really in
telligent argument, but when taken fn
connection with the pecuniary consider
ations involved in the change, the enor
mous expense of abandoning the present
capital and erecting of public buildings
elsewhere the fatalistic argument is on
vantage ground and things are. likely to
be, because they are."
To this the Dttvcnport Tribune re
Our contemporary cays some ambitious
up-river towns are distressing themselves
over this question and want the capital.
It could say a good word for Burlington,
and all that, but does not seem hopeful
of a removal of the capitol. Well, that
is a mere question of time. The removal
will be made one of these days, and just
so soon as the west demands it. and can
unite on a point where the capital shall
fro. It is in our power even now. The
Tribune has already changed the ques
tion from one of ridicule to serious con
sideration, as even the Jluitkeye'i able
article proves, for it docs not treat the
subject in a vein of levity. In advocat
ing Davenport or this Rock Island local
ity as the most desirable snot should a
change be made, aside from the facts
we have given to sustain the posi
tion, it was an object to call out just
what has happened the support of
papers in other localities for their advan
tages, etc. This makes talk, and discus
sion keeps the question of removal alive.
It chokes off ridicule, and gets people to
thinking why not remove the capital?
The Iliwkcye't idea and ideal of a west
ern capital is Nauvoo, III. The town is
almost gone, only a village survives, the
once prosperous young city, but the
site is left, and "there is not a more de
lightful, more desirable place on the Mis
sissippi river for a great city, or for the
seat of government of a great republic.
It is truly the ideal place for a
magnificent seat of power of the best
government and tbe greatest country on
the face of the earth." AH very correct.
but this locality can "go it one better"
all the same, let this shows the whole
subject is an open question, and not one
to be swept aside either by sneers or rid

It is reported from Washington that
Mr. Oest should have said that "a post

Are we to understand then that removing
a postmaster may be good common hon

remove one republican without cause to
give place to another? Is that good com
mon dishonesty? Will Mr. Oest please
give a definition as to what is meant by
civil service reform.

Alderman Hampton, from the commit
tee to whom was referred the bids for the
paving of Second avenue, reported in
favor of accepting the bid of Atkinson &
Olof, without indicating which of tbe
different kinds of brick specified should
be used. Tbe report was adopted unan
imously. It is as follows:
"Your committee to whom was re
ferred the bids for the paving of Second
avenue, would beg leave to report we
have carefully considered the same and
recommend that the contract be awarded
to Atkinson & Olof. whose bid is for
Galesburg bnck $1.64 for square yard;
Bardolph. ft. 50;-Cuba, $1.75; Bloom-
ington, $1.64; Louisiana limestone 59
cents per lineal foot; Berea sandstone,
56 cents. Tbe committee makes no rec
ommendation as to what brick shall be
used. The Cuba brick is the lowest; we
have but one sample and that was pros
cured after the committee met. The com
mittee differed in opinion as to the merits
of the bricks. We would therefore sub
mit tbe question to your honorable body
for your action. We will also refer the
curb stone bids for your action."
Alderman Schnell moved that the prop
osition for Qalesburg brick or brick equal
in every respect to the samples of Qales

Mr. Atkinson vouched for tt.e excellence
of all tbe bricks mentioned except the

Alderman Hetter moved as a substitute
that the committee haye specimens of the
Galesburg, Bloomington and Bardolph
bricks tested at Rock Inland Arsenal, and
that they designate to the contractor the
best brick .
After discussions, all motions and
amendments were withdrawn, and Al

moved that the brick be either Gales

was adopted unanimously.
Alderman III moved that the limestone
curbing proposed in Atkinson & doffs

I heard yesterday that Umher wanted

THE RtAL INVENTOR.
At XTe Indebted to Profeaaor Mora for
th Electric Teleg-nkphT
A ft D and complete account of tbe Inven
tion t t the telegraph appeared In The Cen
tury Itagazine for April, 1888, and recently,
in ext mining an old file of The New York
8tm f jt the year 1857, 1 found tbe following
editor al In the Issue of Sept. 25, of that year,
wrltte i by Moses 8. Beach, the then proprie
tor an 1 editor, and who knew from personal
tnowl. iga whereof he wrote. The article
was ntitled "Honor to Whom Honor la
"Tho laying of the Atlantlo cable has
waked up hundreds of claimants for honors
bestowed upon Professor Morse, and while
each Is so loudly telling bis story, and is so
Impatlmt that It Is coldly received, we will
men tic a a few incidents connected with Pro
teaaae Morse's own experience which we have
never en in print, and which lose none of
their interest from the nnaaMftming modesty
of the ther parties referred to.
"Boon after Mr. Morse's Invention of the
telegra ph which has made him famous he was
a prof esor In the University of New York
City. As yet the Invention was merely an
idea without material form. Among the
studenis there was a eon of Judge Stephen
Vail, o' Morrlstown, N. J., Alfred Vail, and
the worthy professor had no auditor more in
terested in bis supposed to be vagaries. Al
fred wes a young man of an active turn of
mind, and he readily esjioused Professor
Morsels Idi&a. But the profewor hud no
means; his brother Sydney looked upon him
as a clJmerleal dreamer who deserved no
help, ai d so Alfred Vail set about overcom
ing thn difficulty. Ho told the story visions
and all many times over to his father. The
judge vas, as ho is now, a liberal and gener
ous man, with do small degree of contrivance
about him. He became bitorestod and in
vited tl e professor to his house. Tho result
was a personal friendship and a year's exper
imenting at Judge Vall's expense.
"Alfred Vail entered into these experiments
with hit whole soul, aud to him Is lYofessor
Morse indebted quite as much as to bis own
wit for his ultimate triumph. It was Alfred
Vail wlio iuvented the far famed alphabet.
and be, too, was tbe tnvontor of the instru
ment tliat bears Morse's name. I lut what
ever be iid or contrived went cheerfully to
tho gret t end. Alfred felt rewarded In see
ing the Tadual accomplishment of the dream.
"Jud Vail bad a small factory near his
bouso ai d separated from the Speedwell Iron
Works, belonging to him, with water power,
and in it the experiments were carried on.
Three rx lies of copper wire, about four times
as large as that used in tho Atlantlo cable,
were pu -chased at Belleville, N. J. The wire
was sent to New York and wound with cot
ton, under the supposition that it could not
othorwtte be made serviceable. Then the
first clumsy registering machine was devised,
and with it the writing machine, with its me
chanical action by means of types. Their
construe tion and abandonment for something
better t xk place in the same factory, and
there in an upper room, the remains of them
cog wieels, ratchets and slides may, or a
few day 4 since might, still be seen.
"The lirst telegraph message ever sent un
der the o called Morse system was both sent
and received in that same 'upper 'mm,' and
was dictates by Judge Vail 'A patieut
waiter fc. do loser.'
"Then ee caino the apparatuses subsequently
exhibited in New York and elsewhere with
such ole trioal effect. We linve in our pos
session now a piece of that original three
miles of wire, and we prize it as a memento
much m. re than our 'foot' of the Atlantic
"The original plan for layinir tbe lines of
telegrapi was by cables submerged in the
ground. For this purpose the aire was to be
iuclosed in lead pipe, and preparations were
made, for tho introduction of lie wire in the
pipe slciultaneously with its manufacture.
Experuxents showed, however, that with sub
mersion tho necessary insulation of the wire
would be diCieult, if not impossible, and the
cheaper .ind more effectual method of suspen
sion was adopted.
" Anot kt incident and we are dono. Morse
was in those days, if he is not n iw, no mean
hand at tain ting. To testify bis appreciation
of the kindness and invaluable 'material aid'
rendered by the judgo and his son Alfred, he
painted n series of family portraits, ind these
specimens of his skill still adorn tho walls of
Judge Vol's parlors, and though not the per
fection o' art they display more tluin ordinary
skill in tl te use of the brush.
"Judgo Vail and his worthy eon still live.
The Jndps is as halo and hearty at SO as most
men at 5, and enjoys a well earned affluence
in the okl style quiet retirement.
"Alfrei Vail retains in maturer age the
characteristics of his earlier years, and it
now tuning bis attention to authorship."
With the statement that concludes your
eorrespoi dent's article, that "a nephew of
Mr. Mor is one of the best known duck
hunters about town," I know of no reason for
disagreeing, and will only express the hope
tnat bis claim to that distinction is more
solidly hi sed than was that of his unclo to be
ing "the inventor of the telecraiih.' As a
son of Alfred Vail I am naturally desirous
mat justice should be accorded his memory.
