THE KOCK ISLAND AKGTTS. TTTUHRT)A MAY 1. Ib90.
MUST KEEP MOVING.
The True Secret of Rock Island's
A Healthy Public Spirit and Pride In
the City In Worth More Than Mann
faetorieft As We Improve a Will
The coming season ought to be the
most prosperous that Rock Island baa
ever experienced. The paving and beau
tifying operations now in progress are
sure to attract new capital to the city.
New capital means increased work for
our laboring classes, more people and
more homes. This will open up new res
idence portions. It will stimulate the
street car lines to extend their track and
take in mora territory. It will give the
retail men plenty of trade. The new
bouees that are going up will employ all
our mechanics. New enterprises natur
ally seek a growing, active and enterpris
ing city. It is the outside people that
come into a towu that give it renewed
impetus and additional push. Capital is
beginning to investigate our resources.
The town is beginning to show the symp
toms of continued development. On
every side we hear the hum of improve
ment, new edifices are going up, people
Bre buying lots and preparing to build,
and those who have them already are ira
Everyone is looking upon the future
with hiirh hope. How foolish then it is
to grumble and growl over the little in
cidents that are inseparable to the growth
of any town. How foolish it is to be
croaking and groaning and predicting
disaster and failure, when the most in
different observer can see the lie given
to these predictions by the signs of pros
grefs on every hand. Everyone ought to
bep on this good work, if not in ma
terial aid. at least in good words and
cordial sympathy. Every citizen ought
to be loyal to the city, and insist upon
his belief iu its progress. This is the
way towns are built up. It is this gen
eral and universal enthusiasm that has
always marked the progress of Chicago,
and now in spite of its drawbacks and
disadvantages, in spite of the fact that it
was located in a swamp and that it had
everything to contend with, made it the
metropolis of the west, the characteristic
and model city of the continent.
The Peoria Journal says that the j'reat
drawback to Peoria heretofore has teen
a "peevish, fretful, fault finding spirit
on the part of its citizens a disposition
to hang around the corners and whine.
And this on the part of men who never
aided the town to the extent of a dollar,
who never helped forward any enterprise
In any way, shape or form. What we
neeu Here is a healthy, public spirit. We
neen u more tuau capital or manufac
tories or population." What the Journal
says of Peoria has been in a large measure
true of Rock Island, but that spirit is be
ing overridden by a determination to ad.
vance and make the best of our oppor
tunities. A great many fancy that our
growth depends upon manufactories. But
it doesn't altogether though it does to a
great extent. Some of the manufactur
ing towns of the east are dull and dead
about half the time. Some of the most
active enterprising cities in the west have
no manufactories. They make a pleasant
place for people to live in and other de
velopments follow. Out first duty now is
to continue to fix up our streets, make
our town pleasant and enterprising, ens
tertaining. lively and beautiful and then
it will attract people here who want a
desirable place in which to live.

beads of the president, cashier and di
rectors should be struck off and piled up
in a corner with the assets. This edict
has never been repealed, and Chinese
bank stock has continued to be above par
and above reproach.

The collectors of the amount of pledges
to Moline's new Y. M. C. A. building
fund are experiencing considerable diffi
culty in getting the money. When M-s-Knowles
made the offer of the Third ve
nue lot on which the building is erected
it was on condition that the association
raise $6,000 by subscription. Petitions
were circulated, and the necessary amount
pledged, payable witbia a certain period.
Now, it is on these that the subscribers
who placed their names thereon are kick'
ing. Several of these pledges were made
conditionally some were to be taken out
in trade and other and vaiious condi
tions were not complied with, it" Is al
leged, and for this reasru it is expected
that they will hae difficulty in collecting
a larjre amount of the money . The Re
. There are other excuses given for the
refusal to redeem the pledges. For ex
ample: The collectors called on a prom
inent business man who had pledged the
sum of 50. He explained as his reason
for not paying that "he did not want to
put that amount of money into some
thing that would be of no benefit."
According to law these pledges are as
good as a man's note and can be collected.
It is a source of deep regret that some of
the people should have taken this view
of the work of the Y. M. C. A. The
present litigation of the association is
responsible, no doubt, for their disposi
tion to withhold subscriptions.

KEMMLER WILL LINGER AWHILE.
A Writ of Habeas Corpus M hich Respite
Him Until Late In .rune. j
Auburn, N. Y., April 30. Judge Wal- J
lace, of the United Stats court, has
granted a writ of habeas corpus returnable
June 17 in the case of Kemmler. The
ground for the writ is that the act under
which the execution was to take place is
in violation of the constitu ion. The an
nouncement of the news at the penitentiary
caused a stampede of anxious reporters
who were "camping on the t rails" of War
den Durston and everybody who was sus
pected of lieing one of the select twenty
seven who are priviliged to v.'itness the ex
ecution. Made Hrown Feel Melancholy.
Some time before the above news was re
ceived, a tall young man d -if ted into the
prison. He was Harold P. Brown, the
electrical expert who started the Westing
house dynamo as a killing machine. He
had come expecting to work the apparatus
which was to put Kemmler out of the
world. As soon as he heard the news he
said: 'Postponed again. I suppose I may
as well go back to-night." -t was hard to
realize that there was any man in the
world who would become so depressed at
the temporary lease of life given to even so
cruel a wretch. But tlmt was the im
pression Brown created, and it was
the cause of a great deal Of comment.
The i'entrr of Interest. Shift.
It whs two hours after the receipt of the
news at the prison before Keininlrr Wf
made aware of it. At the tune the nr'"
came he was engaged with hisspiritup ad
visers, ami the warden deel ned to 'er'
rupt the exercises. The reporters, b wever,
had a new source of interest li' would
Kemmler receive the) news? anr" they did
not let the warden forget that' world was
waiting to hear. According' ' a'x'ut 4 p.
in. the warden went to Ker oiler's cell to
tell him of his good fortun- Kemmler and
the warden were alone ' the -'H- The
wardeu said soleinnlv t' Kemmler: ' Well.
William, they've irraV'1 v rit f hnlieaa
corpus to vou, Hiid tr't carrh s you over to
June. Vou are saf 'v for t he present."
"Is that so:-" sai" Kemmler, much elated.
'Well, I am east t in my uiiui! now.'1 With
that Kemmler had exhaustel his flow of
ideas, the wi Jen came away, and a very
important '-i"S was over.
l.ittlr Solid Comfort for .eiiimtt-r.
There s really little solid comfort for
Kemo' er in these efforts at keeping him
from 'he death hoek whicl awaits him.
Inifovements may lie made in thecliHir
ari a capable executioner limy be secured,
fat except for that Kemmler is rather to
Je pitied for having had this new lease of
a horrid life granted to him. He can
scarcely hope for ultimate pardon, as he
has cheerfully and with niai y details re
lated how he chopped his minress up, be
lieving that he must kill her some time
and that he might as well do it then as
later. His regular routine f life in the
dull cell will now be renewed and he will
have to go throngh anotliei interval of
suspense, which in the end may be more
torture to him than il would to have gone
throuuh the ordeal now, when he had
abandoned nil hope and had prepared hii
self to die.
