before tbe meeting onvened so
on motion of Mr. Fred Hass. Mayor We

secretary. Mr. P. S. McGlynn

Dr. Wessel and Mr. Kerns, of Moline.
both stated that their opitions having
been on tbe negative side at the last
meetinii. they would be pleased to
bear from the affirmative on the question
Mr. A. 8. Wright, of Mjline, stated
that it was evident tbat a Urge majority
of the committee, correctly representing
as be thought tbe sentiment of the com
mutiny, iavorea consolidation, it was
no use to enter our thoughts again, but
It would be better to arrive at a plan of
Mr. Fred Hass was in fsvc r of consolis
dation. It was to our intere ts to consoU
taste lor various reasons First, it
would double our population, and tbe
size of a town carries strenj th in all ef
forts for Its rebuilding in set king advan
tages and new enterprises away from
borne. United, the new ci v would h
the third in size In tbe sti.te; it would
lessen tbe expenses of municipal govern
men t, as one city administration would do
what it is necessary to bave two for now.
He believed tbe people of Rock Island
would be willing to make a 1 reasonable
cincessions to effect the union, and
would expect of course Moline to do the
same. Ue was heartily in fsvor of con
solidation under all reasonable circum
stances. Mr. A. C. Dart bad alwi.ys favored
consolidation and be believed the question
bad resolved itself wholly int) one of de
tails and it was but necessary now to con
tinue to confer and to bsrmnnize the
joint interests of the two cities until it
was sccomplished. Consolidation would
advance tbe property iD teres all over
both cities. Tbe same man who owns
tbe property at the west of Hock Island
owns tbe property on the esn of Moline
and be keeps it, Mr. Dart Siid, in the
shape of a cow pasture ralhei than to cut
it up into blocks and lota and to improve
it. A consolidated city wiuld force
the desired improvements upt n this man's
property and could compel aim at his
own expense to convert bis c w pastures
into city property. United, our interests
would be identical and we wjuld carry
weight in securing desirable pub
lic enterprises and new industries.
In ten years the total population of the
consolidated city would be doubled. The
three cities are really one community
now; bow much more so are Hock Island
and Moline? Tbe imaginary line should
be vanished and these two cities made
one, in fact. Tbe late General Rodman
bad made tbe prediction to tae speaker,
tbat all the territory north t f the bluff
from tbe east line ot Moline to tbe ex
treme west line of Rock Islaid would in
time be one solid manufacturi lg and bus
iness center, while toward the bluff in
the south would be tbe resident portion.
Mr. Dart believed this predii tion would
come true sooner or later, an 1 that con
olidation would hasten It.
Mr. J. M. Buford spoke of tbe interest
be bad always felt in everything pertain
ing to Rock Island. He wai not in this
country wben the subject of c nsolidation
was first broached, but be was heartily in
favor of tbe plan as one lookit e mutually
to tbe interests of both cities. Fifty years
ago bis father bad predicted tl at In twenty-five
years this community would con
tain 25,000 people, and tbat in fifty years
it would swell to 50,( 00. He also pre
dicted tbat this would be tae point at
which the first railroad wouM strike tbe
Mississippi. Both these predictons bad
been realized, and bow much more
would bave been tbe gain, tbe
speaker, asked had tbe cities on the east
bank of tbe river been one? The only
objection be had ever beard t i tbe union
was the name. Both cities were posn
sessed of pride in and love for their city
and both were unwilling to give it up.
yet both bad grown together. Rock Isl
and always led both in population and
business, and tbe interests of both cities
re the same; we bave grov. n together
until only an Imaginary line intervenes.
Why we cannot exist under one corpora
tion, Mr. Buford could not t nderstand.
Mr. C. H. Deere, of Moline said there
might be some matters of gem-rat interest
to determine, but be favored .he plan of
getting together for exchange of views
which be believed would result to tbe
mutual advantage of both ton ns and lead
up to tbe formation of one city. Tbe
opening up of a thoroughfa e between
tbe two cities on which one light drive
from one city to the other ithout en
countering locomotives, he believed to be
one of tbe first and best move t that could
be made .
Mr. Wm. Jackson expressel bis regret
tbat Dr. Truesdale bad bexn detained
from being present, aa be knew he bad
given tbe subject of consolida:ion consid
erable consideration and bad teveral top
ic of interest to present Tb! subject of
consolidation, according to Mr. Jackson's
lew, had assumed such shape that the
time bad arrived for detail now rather
than tbe main question. At the previous
meeting tbe idea of consolidation bad re
ceived endorsement; nothing bad since
happened to change the sentiment favor
able to tbe project Consloidstion was
bound to come eventually an! be would
like to have it now; he would like to
know tbat he had helped bring it forward.
Id both cities people were opposed to it
through prejudices; we oujht to rise
above prejudices. Be ipokr of the ad-
THE BOCK ISLAXli
vantages of uoion where tbe Interests are
identical. We b ave a good population in
the two cities and all tbat is necessary to
increase It is to unite it He alluded to
tbe government island and water power
and believed tbat with a consolidated city
wielding twice tbe power tbat either
can aingly, the plant on tte island could
not only be developed into practical,
every day usage, but made of greater
benefit to the people and tbe manufacto
ties of tbe three cities. There is strength
in numbers and that is what consolidation
will bring. We may bave to get a law
for It, but we can get one if necessary
from the next legislature.
Mr. L. F. Kerns, of Moline, expressed
himself as a combattant of consollda
tion, and held tbat in Moline an unfriend
ly feeling toward Rock Island existed
growing out of tbe fact, as he alleged,
tbat Rock Island had once taken from
Moline a atrip of land between tbe two
cities and lying in Moline township.
Moline had never forgotten tbat, and it
till looked upon it in tbe spirit of re
sentment tbat Mexico did toward the
United States for taking land fiom that
country by conquest. He was opposed
to consolidation, and was not friendly
to Rock Island, but if tbe two cities did
unite be would favor taking tbe name
Mr. C. H. Deere did not agree with
Mr. Kern's idea that any old prejudices
still existed; be held that any feelings of
twenty years sgo, hsd been abandoned
and forgotten, and be believed the manu
facturers and tbe people of Moline in
general were very much interested in
this subject of consolidation ju9t now.
Mr. A. 8. Wright, of Moline, held tbat
nine-tenths of Moline were for consoli
dation. Tbe matter of the name was one
of sympathy and of sentiment, and for
this reason looking upon it in a business
light, the manufacturers of Moline were
for Rock Island as tbe name, as that
would be most proper and profitable
viewed from a matter of dollars and
cents. We should not think of sympathy
and sentiment in discussing this question,
but look upon it strictly in a business
light, and considering it thus Rock Is
land would be the best name. He knew
of a number of Moline manufacturers
who always registered Rock Island when
away from borne.
Dr. Paul did not consider the name of
so much importance. Give it whatever
is tbe best name.
Mr. Wm. Jackson explained that there
was no wrong done in tbe transaction by
which Rock Island acquired the piece of
land between Moline and Rock Island
and in Moline township. It came into
Rock Island by reason of tbe choice of
tbe property holders.
Mr. C. II. Deere thought tbe land sub
ject entirely foreign to tbe suhject. Mo
line entertained no ill feelings now on
Mayor Wessl wss opposed to consoli
dation, because be could not be convinced
tbat be could personal'y gsin anything
by it and be could not see therefore how
anyone else could. If he could be satis-,
fled that it would be for tbe best inter
ests of all to consolidate be would favor
He thought what was necessary now
was a platform on which to work.
Mr. Fred Hass moved thai Messrs.
Wm. Jackson, A. S. Wright and C. H.
Deere constitute a committee to prepare
resolution to be passed by this meeting.
The motion carried, after which a recess
was taken wben tbe committee reported
the following, which ws unanimously
Retolttd. Tbat in our judgment the mu
tual interest of the cities of Rock Island
and Moline requires, that we encourage
and foster a spirit of mutual good will
and business cooperation, tbat our loca
tion and business connections suggest.
nd demand a practical union to the end
that tbe interests of both communities be
supported, and we are in favor of a har

question of consolidstion. believing that

that the whole people will recognize the
advantage, and tbat tbe result will be a
union of both cities upon an equitable

as to who the man's companion was on
