recently appeared in Chicago, where abe

She is a registered physician of this state,
but she cannot lecture here, but her en
gagements are such that Davenport is tbe
nearest abe will come to us. I be Chi

"Mrs. Dr. PotU, who lectured last night,
is the famous little Quakeress who ap
palled tbe medical traditiona of Pennsyl
vania thirty-seven years ago oy noiaiy
venturing out on the general practice of
medicine a thing unheard of in those
days. She was one of the eight b rave

shall be previously made and approved
according to law, and snail not exceed.
for the site and building complete, tbe
sum of $75,000; provided, that tbe site
shall leave the building unexposed to

including streets and alleys; and tbat no
money appropriated for thia purpose

Illinois shall have ceded to tbe United
States exclusive jurisdiction over tbe
same, during the time tbe United States
shall be or remain the owner thereof, for
all purposes except the administration of
the criminal laws of state and the service
of civil process therein. For the pur
poses of this act tbe sum of $7 'aw is
hereby appropriated, out of any money in
the treasury not otherwise appropriated,

In reporting to tbe bouse upon tbe bill,

harbor and a great producing and manu
facturing interest in and about it, not ex
ceeded on tbe Mississippi river between
St Louis and St. Paul.
The entire city is lighted by electricity
ami supplied with water by the Holly
system. It has several liaes of street
cars leading to tbe adioining cities of
Bioime and Milan, and as fine hotels as
are to be found West of Chicsgo. Its
manufacture of lumber, plows, stoves.
glass, knives and scissors, plated work,
carriages and wagons, furniture and the

The Rock Island arsenal is sit
uated on the island of Rock
Island and connected with the
city of Rock Island by bridges. This is
the largest arsenal in the country. It
supplies more than two-tbirdaof our
army. The government interests at Rock
Island are tbe postofflce. the United
States engineer's ofSce in charge of the
improvements on the upper Miaiasippi,
and tbe deputy collector of internal reve
nue. The present quarters for these offi
ces are inadequate and for them the gov
ernment pays a large amount for rental.
Uros9 receipts of the postoffie at Rock
Island for tbe vesr ending June SO. 1889,
were 3,0. 7JB, showing a steady in
crease from year to year. Suitable
ground for a building can be obtained at
a reasonable cost. It is tbe opinion of
tbe committee that the interests of the
government would be subserved and a
saving of money be made by the erection
of a public building at Rock Island, and
tbey recommend tbe passage of the bill
with tbe following amendments
In line eleven strikeout "two hundred"
and insert "seventy-five.
la line twenty-two strike out "two
hundred" and insert "scventy-flve."
At tbe meeting of the Citizens' Im
provement association Thursday night
the sentiment was expressed that Rock
Island bad not fared as well proportion
ately on the amount of the appropriation
as Galesburg, Burlington, Davenport and
other cities, and some expressed them
selves as favoring asking congress for an
increase in the amount. This would not
be tbe part of policy. Rock Island ought
to have a better bnilding, but it would
not better its chances for the iuc
cess of bill to raise any objections
as coming direct from Rock Island
now. There are outside congressmen
who belieye tbat Rock Islacd should
have had a larger appropriation
and may ao expresa themselves when
the bill comes up on its passage. Rock
Island will be grateful for any assistance
tbat may be tendered in increaaing the
amount there, but it is too late for any
one h re to aak a change. Tbat ahould
