I cannot conceive," a progressive
minded citizen stated this morning, "why
the council should object to tbe park
commissioner idea. The filling of Union
square impresses every citizen, as the
work progresses, of the necessity for that
improvement and the great advancement
it will be to the city when it is com
pleted. It is difficult now to understand
why it was that such a ragged, rough
place was allowed to continue from year
to year in the very heart of the city. AH
the progressive cities in this country and
tbe world consider it an absolute necessi
ty to supply the people with neat, orna
mental parks, where the poorest citizen
can enjoy the beauties of nature; in tact.
they are great oreathfng spaces, where
the people can resort and breathe the
pure air of heaven. The rich can have
parks of their own. but tbe common peo
ple must depend on the public parks, and
as tbe cost to each member of the munic
ipality for a One park is trifling, espec
ially where tbe land is already owned, no
reason can be urged why Union and
Franklin tquares should not be made
places of beauty where the young and
the old will delight to go, especially
where this can be done at slight expense.
Tbe people at the lower end ot our city
are becoming convinced that to make
Franklin square whit it should be we
must da something more for it than is
being done. The fact is. Franklin rquare
is a bed of gravel and it will be always
difficult to grow trees there and make a
rich sod. Tbe city needs the gravel and
can well afford to replace the gravel with
good loam, such as they are now placing
in Union ?quare But If tbe city does
this it wants to be begun and ended in a
reasonable time; it must not be allowed
to drag for years, if this is done. Frank
lin tquare will be what Union square has
been, a place to be shunned rather than
sought. Tbe people of the lower end
ought to ure this matter in earnest;
they have a beautiful square which can
be ornamented and made a place
ol beauty, but it will never be done un
leas some person takes an interest in this
matter. We hope some enterprising and
progressive citizen will move in this mat
ter. He are satisfied tbe city council
will render all necessary assistance. Dig
out your gravel and fill with good earth
that will make ju a thick green sod and
nourish the trees.
"Tbe ordinance for the appointment of
park commissioners should have passed,
B(t that the mayor might appoint men of
g.iod judgment and tasto, as is done in
other places men who will give their
time frr the love of the work to be done,
t'.ien our public parks will be places of
resort and will ield to the people more
comfort at less cost than any other thing
we can do. I do hope tbe council will
reconsider its action at its next meeting,
and adopt the park commissioner ordin
ance." The council showed tbe right spirit in
reducing tbe tolls at the Ro'k river
bridges one-half, but it would bavesbown
ItetUT policy had it abolished the tolls
altogether. The Arocs is not disposed
lo rriiiclzo the council's action in this
respect, as it is indisputably in tbe right
direction, but there is a question as to
whether tbe compromise of the tolls is
going to be productive of good results to
the city in bringing in more trade. Tbe
wisest course would be tn declare the
bridges free there is no doubt about the
wisdom and the good results to come
from such a course.

COL. SANGER'S REPORT.
What the Inapeetar Ceaeral Haa to
Jay or the ihiriaa Agalast MaJ.
Joha R. Hrlaia.
The official report ef Col. J. P. Sanger,
of Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, inspector
general of the United States army, upon
the matter of the investigation ot the
charges preferred against Major John R.
McOinnis, of the Rock Island arsenal, has
been completed, been the rounds of the
departments at Washington, and is now
in the hands of Major McOinnis. The
report details minutely the charges made
by Mr. D. S. 8chureman. ot this city, and
the official action in connection with
them. The charges, sixteen in number,
were mainly to the effect that Major Mc
Oinnis had been in collusion with quarrys
men and others to defraud the govern
ment, and that be had taken bribes, in
conseqaence of which alleged malfeasance
in office the government had been paying
out large sums for nothing. The report
on the facts revealed by the inves
tigation is lengthy, and covers the
ground fully. To it are appended a
number of letters, copies of ac
counts, affidavits and other matters
offered in evidence. Tbe document con
cludes with the statement that the whole
matter seems to have grown out of tbe
disappointment of the Otway stone com
pany, of Ohio, at being unable to control
the contracts for tbe island material; that
at the outset the author feared that a
scandalous, or at least, discreditable
stale of affairs might be disclosed by the
investigation, but that that procedure
bad disclosed "no evidence whatever
upon which single material averment
of complainant can be based," and tor',
minates with the statement that Major
McGinnis, in his judgment, "emerges
from the investigation without the
slightest stain upon his reputation as an
officer," which "exoneration is also due
the other officers and employes of Rok
Island arsenal who have been associated
with him in these transactions."

Nov. 11. Your issue ot the 11th ull. is
before me and the account of Patrick
Welch's bitter attack on Catholics I have
read, and come to the conclusion Patrick
Welch must be a fit subject for one of
your houses of correction . During my
experience of American life I met one
ignorant man who expressed the same
views, but in a manner be deserved to be
excused. He knew no better. Not so
with poor Patrick. He seems to have a
share of talent, but it is proving a curse
instead of a lnefit to him. I am sure
sir, no matter what religion you profess,
yon will not stoop so low as to continue
to allow vour valuable space to be de
voted to such sacrilegious and blasphe
mous utterances. Very respectfully
yours. An Irishman,
and a Catholic.
Our esteemed correspoadent from
across tbe seas, evidently lacks entire
comprehension of the mission of an
American newspaper to publish all the
news of whatsoever character. While
tbe A Rous Las made this its endeavor
always, and in so aiming has published
sermons, lectures and addresses of various
natures, it does not necessarily follow
that il lends its endorsement to all that it
publishes unless it so expressly declares.
The Arocs attempts to pnblish all sides
of matters of common interest irrespec
tive of its own opinion or the opinion of
others. And it will continue to do so.

Jimtnie Dixon is offended, and the Ar
cs is the innocent cause ot it, but an ef
fort will be made with all possible baste
to make amends for the oversight and
neglect which has brought the sling of

Maltese cat which was spoken ot in yes
terday's Ahocs as having wandered back
to its former Davenport home, -was Jim
mie's temporary property, and he found
abundant solace in fondling it in
room. It is because the Arocs neglected
mention of this fact that Dixon is dis
pleased, but we hope it is not too late
to rectify and give "honor to whom
honor is due." One of Jimmie's most
intimate friends says be is taking tbe
matter greatly to '.heart, and that he did
not attend the minstrels last night for
fear that he would hear of his feline.
