Dbak Sih: I herewith enclose to you
a letter which I received from Col.Craigs
bill, U. 8. army eneiceers, which letter
bhowg for itself. This board is visiting
the different arsenals anil places for the
manufacture of guns, as I understand,
with a view of determining the best
means of procuring steel forgings for
high power gunc, and the ereo
tion of factories for such purs
poses, etc. It is tolerably impor
tant that Kock Island should be
fairly represented to this board when it
goes there, and I therefore enclose to you
tbis letter so that you. mty confer with
other citizens of Rock Island and Moline,
and be prepared to give tbis board such
attention and such information as may be
desired with the view ot bringing the
Rock Island arsenal to the front here
after. It would be well, I think, for you
gentlemen to secure the services, in some
way, of some men expert in in such busi
ness so as to make the best showing pos
sible. I wrote to Col. Craighill that I
would be glad to meet him there myself if
I could, aid possibly would be able to do
so, but do not anticipate that I will

Deau Fik: You are doubtless aware
that the president has appointed a board,
as called for by one of the sections of
the last Fortification bill, to investigate
and report upon the subjects of the best
mentis of procuring steel forgings for
high power guns, and tho erection of fac
tories for such purpose.
I he board now expects to be at
Imlitnapolis Oct. 15, and then to pro
ceed to Rock Island. If the objects of
our mission would be facilitated by see
ing, on that occasion, any representative
men, or those specially concerned on this
subject, we would be pleased to meet
them and receive any information they
may be inclined to give. Very respect
fully your obedient servant.

Tree for Mpenrer riunrr.
Editor of the Aruct
Rock Island, Sept. 21. A number of
persons haye asked the privilege o
planting trees in Spencer square. We
need more trees and I am pleased in be
half of the city of giving persons so dis
posed the privilege of so doing. For the
purpose of giving all such due notice and
time to make their selection we have se
lected Thursday, Nov. 4th as the day
when the planting will take place. Not
being as well informed as I would with
this subject and being pressed with other
matters I asked Dr. Magill, A. C. Dart
and W. II. Marshall to assume the man
agement of this matter which they have
kindly consented to do. They will decide
upon the number of trees and the kind,
hence I would ask all persons who desire
to plant a tree to see these gentlemen or
one of them, and they will obtain the
necessary information. We desire to
plant as large trees as possible, trees that
will not only be good for shade, but also
ornamental. I hope our citizens will in
terest themselves in this matter, not only
our own citizens, but any of our neighbors
who may be so disposed, for persons not
residing in this city have mentioned the
subject to mc and expressed a wish to bo
represented. William Jackson.
There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
gether, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years the doctors pronounced it a
local disease, and prescribed local reme
dies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to he a
constitutional disease, and therefore re
quires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., T oledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from ten drops
to a teaspoohful. It acts directly upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of the sys
tem. They offer one hundred dollars for
any case it fails to cure. Send for circu
lars ami testimonials. Address,

THE FARMERS' MEETING.
l4Mt Week's : CSatherlaz the Cae
Fair roaai Hpeeeh of Hoa. Jenae
Harper and Others.
Jobltn. Sept. 24. On Friday last the
members of the different lodges of the F.
M. B. A. met upon the Coe fair ground,
for the purpose of making each others
acquaintance and to enjoy themselves
and have a picnic, and to listen to
speeches bearing upon each others inter
ests. The day was cool yet pleasant.
and there was a large gathering in at
tendance. The meeting was called to r-
der at 10:30 by E. M. Feaster, the
president of the day, who introduced Mr.
Kemps ter of Henry county as the first
speaker. Mr. Kempstcr's speech was an
answer to the question, "Whither as a
nation are we drifting?" lie claimed
that if the trust-monopolies and syndi
cates are allowed to go on unchecked.
that foreigners will yet own this country
and the children are now living who
will become nothing better than serfs..
Mr. Kempster s speech was loudly ap
plauded and highly spoken of. After
dinner the lion. Jesse Harper of Ver
million county. III, being introduced
said. That he intended to speak for Jesse
Harper, that no one would be responsi
ble tor what he should say, and if any one
didn't like it, they could take all the less
of it and go home. Ue then to prevent
taking cold put on a black cap, which
tilted close to his head, and said if once
wound up he could run all day, and by
bis witticisms and happy remaiks kept
the audience on the grin for two hours
and a half. He said there was virtually
no difference between the two old parties
on the tariff question. The Mills bill
only called for a reduction of -about
seven per cent, and a campaign yell of
free trade was raised from ocean to ocean.
Now Jim Blaine and others are propose
ng a treaty of reciprocity between
this country and the South Ameri
can sjates wbicn is mainly an
agricultural country like this our
own. All this is simply talk, 'and is
ntended as a make-believe to deceive
the farmers and induce them to vote- for
that party just once more. But a ma
rity of the farmers can now see
through the deception, and cannot have
the wool drawn over their eyes by such
campaign dodges and trickery. He said
there never was such an uprising as
there was among the farmers at the present
time. They have come to the conclusion
that forbearance has ceased to he a vir
tue, and unless they do something for
their own deliverance they will soon be
in no better condition than they are in
unina, where families ot nve on an
average have to subsist on $ 41 a year.
What we lack in this couutry is in
dividuality. Farmers have been too prone
to follow a leader and do as others do.
without thinking seriously of their own
interests. Men have voted themselves
into their present condition, and tbey
will have to vote themselves out of it
All reforms must be accomplished either
by the ballot or the bullet. He was in
favor of wiping out all laws from our
statutes which interfered with our civili
zation, and which enable a few to be
come extremely wealthy, while masses
the honest sons of toil those that pro
duce the wealth, are becoming poorer
every day. In 1?65 we had but ten mil
lionaires in this country; now we baye
seven thousand. These millionaires
have not obtained their wealth in a fair,
honest, legitimate way. They have been
made wealthy by the damnable legisla
tion of this country. In twenty five
years wheal has gone down from
$3.50 to 75 cents per bushel.
Twentysfive years ago rive eighths
of the families, owned their homes, three
eights did not. Today the scale has been
reversed. The debts of the whole coun
try twenty-live years ago wss six billion
of dollars, todav it is ttiirtysfive.
the farmers and their families were fifty
four per cent of the population and only
owned twenty per cent of the wealth, and
today three per cent of the population
owns seventy per cent of the wealth.
Now then as the nation that can furnish
the cheapest money will root out every
other nation, my remedy for our prrsent
condition is, that we have cheaper money
and more of it, $ 70 per capita. The
value of money in England is two per
cent, in Continental Europe it is three
per cent, while in our country it is eight
per cent. He would repeal every one of
the land grants. The railroads are mak
ing eighteen per cent, while our farms on
an average are not making more thnn two
and oneshalf. Therefore I would have the
government own the railroads and run
tbem at cost. He would tax unoccupied
land three times the amount of that which
was occupied. He would have a graded
income tax, the first $1,000 exempt. He
concluded by reading an extract from
Chauncey M. Depew on repudiation, and
stated in that connection that while the
English railroads only charged three mills
per ton per mile, our roads charged from
ten to fourteen, just as it happened.
Finally he read an extract from Senator
Jones which was, "that slavery which
went out at the mouth of the cannon,
had been supplemented by a system of
robbery and spoliation."

The objection raised against Mr Ca

simply absurd. The greatest culture is a
requirement to attain the highest states

good fortune to be placed within reach
of those means that best, fit one for his
duties as a citizen or any office of public

Seldom is there partisnn division on

impression that because Mr. Gcst favored

No man from this district wo ild daredo
