Vmm aiittee te be Appointed.
Ifthj energy and progressive ideas of
Col. J. M. Wbittemore, the new com
mandant at Rock Island arsenal, finds as
respooi ive a chord in the breasts of our
nationtl legislators as they do with the
citizenti of the tri cities, it may be de
pended upon that there will be a consid
erable increase in the industrial force on
the lslaod of the near future. For years
affairs tt the arsenal hare been conducted
in a letttargic sort of way. necessitated
of course, by the mcagreness of the
appropriations, and very few of the
nutnercus fine shops have been util
ized for manufacturing purposes
from his remarks before the meet
ing at the Harper house Saturday
afternoon, it was evident to all thote
present that Col. Wbittemore proposes to
rejuvenate and inject new life in arsenal
affairs bere. if be can secure the coopera
tion of the ordnance department. He
bad drtwn plans and specifications which
will be submitted to headquarters, and
which Jeclare that Rock Island arsenal is
probably the most (.uitable place in the
United States for the location of a gun
factory. His idea is to utilize the idle
shops i a tome manner and he thinks a
plant f r the manufacture of heavy guns
the proper incentive in that direction.

arouBed local interest in the gun that
centralized in a meeting of represents tive
citizen. Saturday afternoon to discuss the
feasibility of urging an appropriation
from congress for the manufacture of the
gun here. To better comprehend the de
tails and scope of the essential prelim
inaries for manufacturing, Col. Wbitte
more bid been invited to diffuse a little
lift t n the subjt ct. This he readily
consented to do, and when he stepped
into the parlors of the Harper house he
iiiuuu uue an audience present to re
ceive h ra, the following gentlemen being

Ex-llayor Henry Carse called the
meetint; to order, and J. S. Wylie. of
Davenport, was called to the chair, and
S. Davis, of Moline, made secretary.
Upon invitation, Col. Wbittemore ex
plained at considerable length the neces
sary requirements for equipping a factory
such as he had conceived with a capacity
of eighteen 12-inch guns per annum.
Thefartory at Watervliet arsenal. West
Troy, J. . Y., was established during his
commaudancy there, which he stated was
the only plant in existence in this coun
try for the manufacture of these heavy
guns. These were 2.000 of these guns
required, and if Watervliet alone was ex
pected :o supply the demand, it would
take oie hundred years to do it. ne
very rightly conjectured that it would be
more p-cf erable for the government to
select two or even three arsenals to do
the work than depend upon one. If our
sea coasts required protection at all it
would 'e a good public policy to equip
them an quickly as popsible.and one hun
dred years was a lone while to wait.
Col. Waittemore said the water power at
the Reck Island arsenal was a strontr
point ;n favor of any extended work
here, at. it was far superior to any other
arsenal, and If freight rates were anything
near e jual, there would be a large pre
ponderunce of argument on Rock Is
land's side for cheapness and rapidity of
manufacture. None of the present build-
ngs at the arsenal were properly con
structed for the work, but alterations
could be made without any great expense.
whereby they would be thoroughly suit-
ble. In connection with the power
question, Col. Whittemore said Le bad
been ci.refully deliberating as to whether
lectririty would not be less expensive
and mere satisfactory than Hie shafting
system and that he bad arrived at an af
firmative conclusion. It was also his in
tention to ilium inate the island by elec
tricity, and relieve the Egyptian dark
ness which finds its abiding place there.
After Col. Whittemore had de
livered himself of all the inform-
tlon desired remarks, were mads by Capt.
T. J. Robinson, Msj. II. C. Connelly, A.
Darw Wm. Jackson. Phil Mitchell,
Oliver Olsen, Henry Carse and others,
looking to the adoption of preliminary
steps v ith a view of presenting the im
portant, matter before our senators and
congrensmen. This was done by the
doptii n of a motion by Msj. Connelly
that committee of nine be appointed,
three f rom each of the business associa
tions o'tne three cities, who were to act
jointly and consult with Col. Whittemore
on any point upon which they desired in
formal on. The appointment of the
commi tee was left with the presidents of
the isrious associations, who were
admon shed to be very careful to select
men wjo could be depended upon to do
all in their power to further the project.
Before adjourning, a vote of thanks
was te idered to Col. Wbittemore for bis
conrtei y in coming before the meeting
and giving so fully the valuable informa
tion that be imparted.

A Petition te Extend the Pavement en
Holtne Avenne The Thoronahrare
te he a Improved front Twenty-
Third Street ta the Limits.
At tonight's meeting of the city coun
cil a petition will in all probability be
presented asking the passage of an
ordinance ordering the paving of Moline
avenue from Twenty-third street to the
city limits, the majority of the front feet
facing on this important thoroughfare
having been secured to the petition, the
most important ones being: E. P. Rey
nolds, 400 feet. Porter Skinner. 300; H
P. Hull, 400; Geo. Wagner, 460; F. M.
Sinnet, 300; Gilpin Moore. 350; J. J
Reimers, 100; V. M. Blanding, 210;
Joseph Huber, 160; W. F. Schroeder,
40; S. J. Stader, 24; S.Sprague, 73; G
A. Schumacher. 60; James McElrov. 70:
and many others owning smaller strips.
The sentiment is unanimous in favor of
the improvement and the desire seems to
be that the material be either granite or
cypress blocks, though Bardolph vitrified
brick ia not unpopular.
a petition is also in circulation on
Fourth avenue east of Twentieth street.
the Idea being to get the consent of the
property holders there as on Twenty
third street for paving from Twentieth
street, which his already been ordered
to me junction or Moline avenue, ana
this would, if successful, afford a paved
drive from the Moline limits clear through
to Ninth street and Second avenue.
What a grand thing that would be for
Rck I-il and, and the council will conn
tenance it of course. Our present muui
cipal body believes in just such snbstan-
THE W. C. T. U.

of Mr. J. Ellen Foster and f Prohi
bition and Its Relation to Polities).
During the county convention of the
W. C. T. C. at Moline last Friday, the
query. "Is Mrs. J. Ellen Foster justifia
ble in her present course?" was answered
by Mrs. Rounds, state president, who
stated that she had no ill-will toward

airs, rosier, ana nopea teat ene was
prompted in her action by a desire to
serve God as best she could. But the
speaker did not think Mrs. Foster was
acting in accordance with the principle
upon which American institutions are
founded, viz: the majority shall rule.
She had carried matters too far, Mrs.
Rounds thought, in opposing the action
of the National W. C. T. U. after it bad
resolved by an overwhelming majority to
aid the party committed o its principles,
the prohibition party.
She also gave her explanation of how
the W. C. T. U. comes to be lending its
aid to the prohibition party. This aid
had been promised in the Louisville con
vention some years ago to the party
promising the surest protection to the
home. The republican and democratic
conventions of 18S4 had sent the union's
memorialists away unheeded; then they
went to the prohibition convention, and
of course their memorial was acceded to,
and they considered themselves pledged
by their Louisville action to lend tbei
aid to that party.

Rev. T. D. Ewing. D. D., of Fair
field, Iowa, preached in the Central
Presbyterian church yesterday morning
and evening. In the morning he chose
his subject from Matthew. 42 :22 :
What think ye of Chriitr Whoso son ia lie?
The sermon touched upon the histori
cal events in Rome, Greece, Britain, In
dia and Gallilee at the time of Christ and
in these and other countries since, and
pictured the God-man, Christ Jesus, as
the Central figure of all history, the
source of science and philosophy, the
the theme of all literature, concerning
whom our views mould our lives and
shape our destiny.
Dr. Ewing delivers a logical discourse
and is eloquent in his deliyery.
