THE POWER PLANS.

Mr. D. N Richardson, editor of the
Davenport Democrat, was the guest of
Col. Wbtitcroore for a few heirs at Rock
Island arterial the other day and he
learned tome interesting detail of the
colonel's plana for transferring the power
In rogue there, a general idea of which
has already been given in the Altars
Editor Rlchardaon baa written the foK
lowing Interesting descriptive account:
A great change In power methods Is be
ing prepared for at the Rock Island ar
senal. During tbe administration of Qen.
Rodman and Col. Flagler the plan, of
course, was water power. In their time
the electric power bad not become far
developed and eo aasured as to call for
serious attention in connection with such
vast enterprises. Water was tbe most
feasible agent and to that end a Urge Bf
penditure of money was made to develop
for armorv purposes 3, 000 horse power,
of which 2.000 was to be used if need
should ever come for manufacturing pur
poaea at the government shops. Aside
from tbe building of the dam and wheels
and the assuring of an abundant flow into
tbe pool, the cost of power transferance
from the power house to th shop.
figured at about 9250.000. This was to he
tank in construction and placing of abaft
ing, wire cables, etc. All this seems lias
Iv to be abandoned for electric power
Tbe water power will be retained of
course, but in all probability tbe shafting
and cable transfer plan will be exchanged
for dynamoa and copper wire During
the short time that Col Whittemore bas
commanded at Rock Island araenal. he
bas been much engaged in bringing about
this change, which will be cheaper in
first coat by about flSO.OOO, and much
leaa expensive In its operation. As for
instance, to put tbe shaft and cable sys
tem In operation so aa to run tbe north
row of abopa there would te consumed
800 horse power in friction . All this, in
order to turn a single machine in any one
of the north ahops a machine for which
a single horse power would be ample
Hence to put a single horse power It
work 81 h.irse power must be expended
to say nothing of the coat of lubricants
and skilled supervision. With toe djna
mo and copper wire connected to an in
dependent motor attached to the machine
tbe item of friction would cut no figure.
Tbe eleven new turbine wheels will ex.rt
fifty horse power each The dynamos
are to be one hundred horse power.
Hrnre the f sa 1 1 power of the two wheel
can be exerted at tbe shops 8,200 feet
away, leas a small )ss of energy, per
haps ten per cent. So 100 horse-power
of water will give ninety borse-power of
electric force, whereas 800 horse power
of water operating through shaft and ca
ble, would not turn a shop machine
would all be lost in friction
Tcis Is one Improvement to be made
In operating the proposed gun shop, the
maximum power rrquired is figured at
200-horse, which can be readilv achieved
by coupling four wheels to a 2 hi horse
power dynamo. Thus will the govern-
raant be more economically served and
by the most approved modern methods
And It will make no difference whether
the power is rrquired in the shops, at
the pumping nations, derricks or eleva
tors a copper wire anil a small motor at
each machine will turn, pump, elevate
illuminate or drill at any place out doors
or In. upon tbe island This Is a triumph
Relative to Col. Whittemore gun fac
lory Idea tbe Democrat says: "He i
right beyond tbe shadow of a doubt, but
tbe ordnance department may think oth
erwise. On this behalf the trl-cities'
business committees are at work In
Washington. It is an opportunity that
Is well worth working for."
I cm ike Ptwerlea.
The legialatioQ which It bas been re
ported is proposed to authorize certain
Improvements being made In the Chippe
wa river by Mr. Weyerhauser and others
ae aa to again make Beef Slough availa
ble, continues to eicite comment. The
Dunn county Aries, published at Menom
inee, Wis , bas something to say on the
question and presumably expresse tbe
sentiment of the Knapp, Stout A Co.
in what It baa to say. The comments,
which are as followa, are therefore douMy
"There haa been recently published in
maay of tbe daily and weekly journal,
reports purporting to have come from
Osbkoah and Eau Claire, staling that tbe
Mississippi Logging company have intro
duced in congress a bill authorizing them
to construct a dam across the Chippewa
river at the bead of Beef Slough for the
purpose of diverting the water from the
river Into tbe slough. These reports
have coupled Senator Sawyer's name with
tbe matter, claiming that he would intro
duce the bill Now. eo far as 8eiiit..r
Sawyer is concerned, we know tbe re
ports are utterly false. That the Missis
stppi River Logging and Beef Slough
company would secure such legislation
If they e mid their former actiona clearly
Indicate . Their unlawful attempts to do
just that very thing heretofore, clearly
shows that they know no law but fear.
Within the past two years their agents
and servants attempted twice to duo
the Chippewa river at the head of Beef
Slouffh and throw the water into the
slough We are not prepared to believe
thai either the war department or ibe
government will give encouragement er
aid to any project bating for it aim tin
diversion of tbe Chippewa river into
Beef Slough In tbe so e Interest and for
the sole benefit of private corporation
exleting under the laws of other states.
Certainly we d not believe that either
will aid a project which Inevitably will
destroy the nav.gation on one aide of the
principal n v. rs of Wisconsin at the very
points where for many yeara past tbe
war department has annually expended
large sums of money to improve naviga
tion It would indeed le a trange pro
cedure after these companies by their
own obstructions and acta, running
through fifteen years past, have Oiled up
Beef Slough with land from source to
mouth for the government to help tnm
out by destroying th Chippewa river."

The speeches made at farmers gath
erings remind me of an old minister we
lad in England to whom it made no dif
ference whether be took his text in Gene
sis, Revelationa, Acta of tbe Apostles or
Lamentations, he invariably preached
the same sermon, "Christ and him cruci
fied " At tbe late farmers gathering in
Hock Island Mr. McConochie, In his very
interseting speech, gave out a very ap
propriate text "What Shall tbe Farmer
do to he Saved?' to which, as usual, none
of the speakers seemed to pay much at
tention. But why is the cry going up
from our cities and our mayors, "What
Shall the Farmers do to be Saved?" Ia
it not a further endorsement ot the ax
iom, that "Corn is King?'' and although
tbe success of the business enterprises of
our country doen r.ot entirely depend
upon one thing, but the blending to
gether of many pursuit, nevertheless,
agriculture is the pillar of them all. It
becomes very necessary then that the
farmer shall be aaved in order that every
body else may be saved.
In reading over the speeches there
seems to tie a vagueness, and a lack of
practicable deflnitenets aa to what a
farmer shall do to he saved which Is
unaccountable. However, there seems
to be a genera presi-mption that the
farmer Is an ignoramus and that he re
quires educating. Mayor McConnochie
says "It is the greatest mis
take in the world to sup
poe that because a man can hold a
plow or build a stack of hay be will make
a farmer. Very true, and a farmer may
have the wisdom of Horace Greeley and
understand chemistry in all its branches
and may be able to analyze bis soil so as
to discover to a nicety the kind of artifi
cial manure that is required to keep up
tbe fertility of bis farm, he may even
know bow to fatten a steer or a hog in
tbe shortest time upon the leat amount
of fee4, and if some wealthy corporation
or beef and potk combine steals the hog
or steer or gets them at half price after
they are fat, he will never make a sue
cessful farmer, cot even if be hss tbe
wisdom of a Solomon. The mayor aft -r
denouncing about all theories that have
ever Been advacced for the f timers de
liverance), as quackery say?, "it is not my
purpose to tell you what to do or wbat
not to do. I have not the requisite
qualifications for such a task. Political
economy ia ne of those questions that I
have always considered too broad and
comprehensive for my reasoning faculties
to comprehend." Why as little as tbe
farmer knows, he is being gradually con
vinced that there is no political economy
nor any other kind of economy in being
compelled to pay f 130 for tlOO worth of
merchandise. And be is being further
convinced that so long as be is compelled
to do ibis by legislation, "equal rights."
which is guaranteed by the constitution
ot the Uniiet. Slates, is nothing but a
fizzle and a farce.
Mr. H Darling attributes the present
condition of the farmers to an over
stocked market. But how much better
off would the farmers havj been with
iluut. le the present prices and only half
the crop? Must we not Kok further for
the true cause? Mr. Darling further
states "the farmer should give bis perso
nal attention to bis business and per
form acme of the labor himself, and con
duct the farm on business principles."
Should not Mr. Darling have explain
ed what was meant by conducting tbe
farm upon business principles? Was
there ever a more unnecessary piece of
advice given than that a farmer "shall
perform some of the labor himself?"
Does not every farmer know by instinct
that he haa to perform too much labor
himself? Is It not a scandalous shame
that be haa to crawl out of bis bed to
early ail through the working season and
work so late at night for tbe benefit of
some trust, some pork or beef combine or
some rich corporation, which .lames G.
Blaine says "are largely private affairs,
with which no man has any right to in
terfere." The trouble, is, gentlemen, the
farmer haa fallen among thieves, which
are robbing him at both ends, and be will
have to work out his own salvation and
emancipation at the ballot-box. and you
can call that quackery or treason, and
make the heat of It.
