Tbe Moline Business Men's association
met Wednesday night, and Messrs. C. II.
Deere, H. A. Ainswortb and Eugene
Lewis were appointed members ef the
tri-city committee on securing the Whit
temore gun factory at the Rock Island
The determination on tbe part of the
., R. I. & P. to erect a new freight
depot in that city was tbe incentive for a
great deal of enthusiasm.
The fact that Rock Island had tbe
good fortune to have a bill before con
gress providing for a government build
ing here, was discussed with a great deal
animation, and finally tbe secretary
was instructed to telegraph Congressman
Gest as quickly as possible to in
troduce a Diu at once lor a
government building at Moline, and
tbe sentiment of the meetine was that
be biggrr and larger than the one to be
erected in Rock Island. The real need of
public building in Moline will be a mat
ter difficult to conceive. The only fed
eral office it has the postoffice is as
comfortably and conveniently provided
for as any in the state outside of Chicago.
Secretary Porter read a carefully pre
pared report showing that 177 new build
ings bad been put up in the city tbe past

As the Arous of last evening predict
ed, the Union makes a complete retraction
of any and all things it has said reflecting
in any way upon ex-City Attorney Mc
Eniry, who recently sued tbe morning
paper for tlO.OOO damages for libelous
statements. The concessions on tbe part
of the Cnion that it bad done an injustice
and there was "no intention of assailing
bis character was all that Mr. McEniry
asked. But the Union has gone further.
In sack cloth and ashes and with every
evidence of meekness and humiliation, it
throws itself at Mr. McEnlry's feet, hum
bly begs forgiveness, says it didn't mean
it and will never be so naughty again,
ssys "it was not our intention in the ar
ticle of June 16th or Nov. 20th to say
anything against the character, integrity
or ability of Mr. McEniry as a lawyer;"
that it criticized bis course in the butcher
cases "perhaps too severely that "we
did not intend to say or to be under
stood as saying that Mr. McEniry be
trayed the interests of tbe city in a
treacherous sense, but that his course in
dismissing tbe Henry county butcher
cases, in our judgment, was not for tbe
best interest of our city '
The entire article is a complete vindi
cation of Mr. McEoiry as far as tbe
Union is concerned, which ought to be
worth more to him than 110,000 of tbe
concern's capital stock. He will, doubt
less so view it, or, at least, be ahould,
and dismiss bis suit forthwith, for sorely
tbe retraction could not have been more
complete. In the meantime Mr. Mc
Eniry is gratified, and the Union breathes
easy. Tbe public, therefore, ougni to

Among today's Washington dispatches
one which reads: "The bouse bas

At a meeting or the house committee
on labor yesterday in Washington, tbe
adjustment of back pay claims under tbe

adjust the claims.
Another evidence of the fact that the
will made in 1836 was not intended by
tbe late Hon. Bailey Davenport as his
last, waa produced today when a citizen
ot Black Hawk stated that in conversa
tion with Mr. Davenport on the summit
of the tower one day last summer, be de
clared bis intention of willing the beauti
ful historic spot and his portion of tbe
slock of the Rock Island & Milan road,
which was the great majority, to the city
of Rock Island. Mr. Davenport could
not have done a grander act for the city.
Another fright occurred on a car at the

referred and that the whole matter is now
part of the sundry civil bill and will be

gun has been brought to the attention of
the secretary of war and careful consid
