Secretary Proctor yesterday transmit
ted to the imise his answer to the resolu-
tion ot (bit body calling for report ou tbe
preBent c mdition of the government
works at Rock Island and the views of
the srerctr ry aa to tb propriety, econo
my and desirability of utilizing theae
works aa gun factory for finishing and
aesemblloj; heavy ordnance. Inoorporat
ed in the i.nswer to the reaolution are the
opinions rf Col Whittemore, command
ant at the arsenal, who, as all know. Is
favorable .o the project and that of Gen.
Benet, wlo was of the opinion that tha
distance of Rock Island from the present
sources o' supply of forgings and from
proving ( round at which guns can be
proved before their issue, and from the
sea coast where guns must be mounted
rendered ts location unfavorable to tha
establishment of a gun factory. Secre
tary Proc or says in his letter transmit
ted: "Without approving or disapproving
plan Ktitin Ittcd, in my view the arsenal
at Water liet should be first completed
according to the original plan, and ap
propriate made for mounting guns al
ready aithorized by Uw. There is
needed a )! u for mounting these guns
and also a place for the manufacture of
larger gut a. Ills quite probable thut it
ill be diairable t manufacture aome of
them at tick Island and Waturvliet ar
senal, ami it in .y he that provisions will
be mailt- 'or heavy guns, so that some of
these can be assembled at Rock Island.
That li tn excellent location with good
light and power. I am in favor of es
tablishing some branch for their manu
facture there in connection with heavy
ordnance and field material that will be
required. But it is impossible now to
decide w iat will be required and what
work can be doue there to tbe best ad
vantage, and I think it is the part ot
wisdom ind prudence to c implete the
work in band and defer beginning tbe
manufac ure at Ruck Island until we can
judge be ter what will be required."
Todays Chicago Tribune contains a
column of special correspondence rela
tive to ti e gun factory project under the
heads o "No Western Gun Factory-
Manufacture of Cannon at Rock Island
Lacks Endorsement Judge Gest'a I'lan
Does no' Meet with the Full Approval of
tbe Src etary of War." The Tribune
article, after coutaluing tha substance of
Col. Whittemore 's recommendations and
his plan for utilizing the shops now on
tbe island, goes on to say:
Col 'Vhittemore savs tbe establish
ment of a gun plant at the Kock Island
arsenal 'vould unite tbe interests of tbe
Mississippi Valley with those of the sea-
eoast. As to the possibilities of obtain
ing tbe rough tempered and annealed
forglDgr- in ttiat vicinity, be says thut they
can tie purchased at no ureater ilistanre
fthan Cb cago, and at other pluces in tbe
west larga v orks are in process of con
struction. He cays he la informed that
the Chicago Steel works, with a capital
f 20, JOO.OiH). are to erect a Martin-
SiemcDs plant to cost 84,000,000. and are
competi )g successfully with the most
prominent Pittsburg firms In tbe produc
tion of iron and steel. Iron ore of tbe
best quality can be obtained from the
Lake Si periur mines, which ship ore in
arge ou antities to the iron manufactur
ing centers in other states
tnde- date of Jan 25, Uen Benet,
chief o' ordnance, aaya the grounds at
Hock Iiland embrace the whole island,
which contains 970 acres, and lies adja
cent to the citlea of Molina and Rock Isl
and. Ill , and Davenport, la It is acces
sible tD the railroads entering Rock Isl
and Darenport, but tbe depth of water in
the Mississippi at that place la not suffi
cient at d the channel too uncertain for
the tra isportatlon of heavy guns. The
workshops are two stories high with base
ments, the first ti mi being about ten feet
frooi tie ground, and they were not de
signed or heavy gun work. Tbe distance
of Hi' Island from the seaboard, from
the ordnance proving ground, and from
tbe stiu rce of supply for such manufao
tuiea t oes not commend it aa tbe most
suitabl place for the establishment of a
gun factory. Tbe department ia engaged
in the erection of a gun factory atWa-
tervlie arsenal in accordance with recent
legislation, and appropriations have
been made by congress for the
purpose. Should its capacity prove
insuffli ient for the public needs
it could either be enlarged, or per
haps part of the work be given out by
private contract This would be in tbe
direct inn of economical and efficient ad-
minis', 'ation and production.
In another letter addressed to the sec
retary of war, under date of reb. 21,
Gen. iienet aays: "The total floor apace
in shep E, recommended for adaptation
to tbe manufacture of guns, is about 20
percent less than that of the present
north wing of the army gun factory at
Wateivliet. The number of large ma
chine tools needed for the equipment of
the shop is about tbe same as required
for thi north wing of the army gun fax
lory, or which the estimated output la
equiv dent to about fifteen twelve-inch
guns tm annum It thus appears that
the ei liniated output of the thirty to thir-
ti-flv i twelve-Inch guns per annum for
abop i is at least 100 per cent too large.
'T ie cost of the necessary machinery
for at. outfit of fifteen twelve inch guns
per annum would be not less tban $650,
000, nnd would require at least three
years for Ita delivery. As at present con
strue ed the narrow windows of shop E
and toe proximity of the much higher
build ngs on either side cut off the supply
of lis ht necessary for the fine machine
m m . nnu
work required in gun miuuiaciurc. iu
distance of Rock Island from tbe source
of au odIv of forgings, from a proving
grou id, and from tbeseacoast, where the
nuns ui st be mounted, render us loca
tion unfavorable for the establishment of
a gun factory. The Mississippi river in
ita u j per course it not suited to the
tram portatton of heavy guns."
At regards the estimate for an electric
nl.n (ln Benet save the mere state-
men I of Col WblUemore, unsupported
by data or the requisite practical exper
i.ha , on hia Dart, cannot be accepted as
auU oritative, nor is it the policy of
tbe department to adopt an extensive
plant for manufacture at iu arsenals oth
er tl an well tried and generally approved
sysfms. In the opinion oi uen. oenei,
the ippropriationstor a gun plant should
irated at the Watervliet arsenal,
and the factory at that place should be
con pleted and thoroughly equippeu uc-
' .as . blnn ntan-
fon starting anotner buu-uik
llshment at some other point, that econs
omy will result from concentration of
such a plant at one point and under one
administrative bead, unless an exception
be made in favor of tbe Pacific coast.
where mmy goods are required, distant
3,000 miles from the Wavervnet arsenai.
Then follows Secretary Proctor's opln
ion given above. It will thus be seen
that Gen. Benet bas been exceedingly
diligent In bis determination to defeat
Col. Wblttemore'a plan, and he has suc
ceeded for the present no doubt. The
assertions of the chief of ordnance from
a standpoint of natural science are so far
out of the way as to be absurd to tbe
mind of any one who is acquainted with
Rock Island arsenal and tbe great build
ings erected upon It However, Gen.
Benet cannot carry on his vindictive
spirit to the detriment of this community
always. He retires this year and it is
probable that no army officer ever
stepped down and out with the same lack
of grace and popularity. The tri-cities
will always believe he has used his tem
porary offlolal strength to do them injury.
Mayor McConOchie baa received tbe
following letter from Senator Culloin
concerning the gun factory:
Bod William McCoaochle, Mayor. Rock Inland,
Dear Sib : Your favor of the 23d i nst . ,
in relation to Gen. Whittemore's report,
has been received. I am aware of the
feeling existing between Gen. Benet and
Col. Whittemore, and Senator Allison and
I saw the secretary of war on last Friday
and urged his attention to tbe matter and
to the importance of doing something for
the Rock Island Arsenal, making It a
place for tbe manufacture ot arms, heavy
guns and every other kind of ordnance.
The secretary seems to be very friendly
to it, but indicates that at present noth
ing can be done unless congress makes
much heavier appropriations th in are an
ticipated; that the place where they are
manufacturing guns is doing about all
that congress gives money to do at pres
ent, and be doea not like to abandon that
pltire. However, we will do the very
best we can in the premises. Truly yours,

Dr. Richard Edwards, stats superin
tendent of public instruction, has pre
pared a circular to be sent to superintend
ents, principals and teachers ot public
schools, fixing March 6 and 7 as the dates
of holding examinations fur tbe state fair

last year's exhibit was tbe best ever held.
but that he hopes to have a much better
one this year, and erpects to have every
county in the state represented.
A sad case is thai of Mra. A. Hinder-
brandt, wife of Mr. Hilderbrandt, of
Third avenue and Twenty-fourth street.
She lias been suffering with mental trou
bles for some time and this morning she
became ao violent that It was necessary
to restrain her, and she waa taken in
charge by the authorities. An inquisi
tion is being made into her condition this
afternoon. She is the mother of seven
little children, and Mr. Hilderbrandt bas

says: "The "Phillies'' have jewels in

He gets over aa much ground as anv
short stop I ever saw, and ean pick up a
ball and throw it as quickly and accur
ately as any of them. The Phillies' will
surely not be weak at short "
There is talk of a petition to the coun
cil at the Monday evening meeting of the
necessity of relieving Street Commisv
sioner Harris of some of ihe ar
duous duties of bis office Take
for instance a snow storm like
last night's and consider bow much anx
iety and back ache it would give a
man of Mr. Harris' energetic disposition
Tbis morning he got down aa early as 9
o'clock and while Officer Sexton had as
sumed a part of the duties by clearing all
tbe walks about the city building, it was
nevertheless apparent that the street
commissioner waa conscious of the re
sponslbllity of hia office or be would not
bave got around so early In the morning.
It would probably also bave contributed
immensely to his mental and physical
ease if Mr Sexton bad cleaned other
walks in the city that should receive the
street superintendent's attention; but he
did not, and consequently they were left
undone. Mr. Harris' case certainly re
quires the attention of the city council.
WINTER WAS VERY TARDY
But it Got Here in Good Shape at
Last Mgbt's Fnrlon mioi m and the
C b Illy Atmuaphere That Followed
This Morning -FlVf Inches ortsnow.
Old probs, who has.been slightly off in
his calculations and prognostications sev
eral times this winter, has never called
the turn any more accurately tban he did
yesterday afternoon, when he predicted
that snow would be followed by a cold
wave and zero temperature. The flurries
of snow which had been loading the at
Biosphere, more than covering the -at
face of tbe ground, during tbe afternoon
settled down to a steady downfall as
night approached, and by the time dark
ness gathered in there was nolblng par
ticularlv enticing out of doors in the way
of weather. In the city, traffic was
seriously interfered with early in the
evening. The anow drifted as it
settled, and the street car companies ex
perienced great difficulties in keeping tbe
cars on their various lines moving. Fin
ally all the cars not provided with snow
plow attachments were withdrawn, and
two horses assigned to those remaining
out, which was not mire than half the
regular complement. The Immense
snow plows were ordered out.and kept
on tbe go until nearly morning, so that
wh?n tbe time came for running out tbe
first cars today, the tracks were
in fair shape. Several barrels of salt
have bea consumed in endeavor to
melt the snow, and as the day
advanced more cars have been nut
out, and this afternoon tbe full equip
merit of cars on the red, blue and
green lines, aa well as the Elm street
route, has been about restored.
The mercury fell rapidly during tbe
Niuiu. and this morning found the tern
perature within four degrees of zero, and
while it has moderated somewhat today
and the snow baa ceased, it is expected
that there will lie more cold weather be
fore it becomes perceptibly warmer.
Five inches of snow fell which has made
splendid sleighing and given us the first
real wintry appearance that we have seen
since the calendar winter of 1880-90 set
in. The change was a disappointment to
those who had satisfied themselves that
there would be no winter tbis season, and
a demonstration of the fact that Ihe

A BLESSED WORK.
What the Industrial Belief Society ia
.accomplishing la Rock Island- -fcrlve
It Enronrao aaenl
The Rock Island Industrial Relief so
ciety holds its regular meeting at lit
rooms of the- Citizens' Improvement as
sociation in Harper 'a theatre building to
morrow afternoon. A member of tbe
society ban furnished tbe Abous tbe foN
lowing fitting words concerning the so
ciety which should have a place in the
thoughts and hearts of all who are in a
position to a'.d it:
The work of the Industrial Relief so
ciety being carried on quietly but per
sistently and faithfully. The managers
are seeking out and relieving to the best
of their abtlity tbe poor and suffering of
our city. Sume pitiable Cases are brought
to light. Many deserving people whom
only sickness or lack of work have made
unable to provide for themselves are
found needing the neceasaries of life.
Constantly the rematk is beard, "it
makes my heart ache, I did not dream
there waa such misery and need in our
midst." We find women, little children
and often men. sick, needing food, cloth
ing and sometimes even fire. Think of
It. You whose dear ones are sheltered
and surrounded bv all that make them
comfortable. Care tor your own and
thank God for your blessings, but let
your hearts go out to seek and to help
those who, fellow creatures and
members of our own city familys
can be kept only from actual suffering,
and perhaps from sin through your help.
We can never tell bow much crime might
be prevented by timely help In a time of
extreme need by encouraging words and
a kindly interest extended when ready to
give up In deapair. All this our Indus
trial Relief society is seeking to do. It
is a society banded together to help tbe
needy of our city, and also to work for
the uplifting of tbe down -trodden, and to
help tbem on to a self-supporting life.
Citizens of Rock Island, this is your
work, too; we are glad to do our part,
and we know you will willingly give us
your aid and cooperation, as you see
what is needed. Many bave come for
ward with kind worda and generous do
nations business men and busy women
but the ward managers still say : "What
shall we dot We find cases of sufferiog,
but have no means to help. We make au
appeal to youwill not you help? La
dies, will you not look through your
stores and send to us all you can spare
and obtain from others, clothing of all
kinds for men, women aud children, bed
ding and food anything can be used?
