"I desire to erect a memorial to my
father. If agreeable to your he ooreble
body, It shall take this form, subjjet only
to the stipulation.''
These, words were spoken by Ciogress-man-elect
Ben T. Cable at hia h ime on
Moline avenue last evening in li t pres
ence of the city council of Rock Island,
whom he had gathered about hi . The
speaker then proceeded to uefold his
plan of providing a filter at tbe Itock IsN
and waterworks in memory of bis father,
the late P. L. Cable, who had presented
the city with the original waterworks
plant. The only reservation on the part
or Mr. Cable was that should tin city dis
pose of the waterworks the filter must be
allowed to return to him. M tyor Mc
Concchie's reply was that the city would
no doubt be willing to bind itself that tbe
works should not be sold if llr. Cxble
carried out his munificent purpose.
In the history of Rock Itl ind which
shall lu tbe future be wri ten. one
of its bnglicst pages will bet that on
which will be recordod a deed of Jan. 1,
1891, a more than generous iict on the
part of one of its citizens which not only
demonstrated the public spirit of that
citizen, but more than tbat it iittested his
affection and consideration for tbe people,
and all tbe people of tne city, which had
always been bis home.
To state tbe case briefly. Rock Island
received a $15,000 New Yetit'a present
last evening, a gift of such a nature as
every lian, woman and child in the city
may enjoy and in the blessinis of which
all our citizens may individutdly partici
pate. Ic was a gift of a nature that will
give to our people more I ban riches,
more than handsome buildings, paved
street?, and beautiful parks, it will give
them more than comfort anl luxury, it
will give them that which is t he first aim
in the pursuit of all h&ppinesi health.
During the storm yesterday. Congress
man Ben T. Cable drove quietly about
the city and called personally upon May
or McConncbie and tbe members of the
council and invited them to call at his
residence on Moline avenue at 8 o'clock
in the evening. Not one of the munici
pal body had the least suspicion of Mr.
Cable's intentions in extending tbe invi
tation when the council gathered at his
elegant home at 8 o'clock ia acceptance
of it. Tbe affair was entirely informal in
every way, and Mr. Cable, nfter welcom
ing the council, stated thf t he desired
to erect a ' memorial to his father,
the late P. L. Cable. end
to supplement and complete the
work already done by him in tbe erection
of a water works plant for the city. To
this end be decided if the city would
pass tbe necessary ordinance, to put in a
filter such as would insure to all consum
ers absolutely pure and wholesome water.
The presentation would lie subject only
to one condition, ami that, that should
tbe city at any time sell tte water works
as had been contemplated, tbe filter plant
should revert to the givr. The mayor
and sltlernian of course stated their
entire willingness to accept tbe liberal
proffer wholly on tbe ten as of the doner
Bed expressed their high ense of appre
ciation of the generous d.ed.
Mr. O. H. Jewe l, of Chicago, presi
dent of the O. II . Jewell Filter company,
of New York and Chicago, and inventor of
the Jewell process, the beet and most suc
cessful in existence, was present also by
Mr. Cable's invitation and at bis solicita
tion explained the nature of the plant
Mr. Cable proposed to present to tbe city.
It would be, be said, a 3 000.000 gallon
gravity filter pUnt, consisting of three Oi
lers IS fee', in diamelor by 14 feet in
height. Tbe plant would be provided
with all tbe latest improvements and the
pump and engine to operate the filters
be furnished direct from the Law
rence Machine compsny of Lawrence,
Mass. Tbe entire plant would be erected
at a cost to Mr. Cable of $15,000,
oo solid stone foundations and would
require a new building to the north of
tbe present water worl s building, which
would have denlension of 68 feet long,
by 22 feet in width an 1 16 feet in height.
Ia giving a brief description of the pro
cess, Mr. Jewell said I be water la elevated
into the tops of the filters through
flume which is above the filter tanks.
After entering these tanks the water pas
ses downwards through a clear pure white
bed of crushed quartz, becoming thorough
ly purified and then r. asaes into a large
storage reservoir, from whence it is
pumped direct to the mains by the city
pumps. These filteis are washed with
purified water, which is accomplished by
a connection direct vitb the city ' main,
where a reverse current is set up in the
filters by the water passing upwarda. A
sand agitator is then set in motion and
the entire quartz bed is stirred and washed
perfectly clean from all possible impuri
ties. This cleansioi; operation is accom
plished inside of two We minutes, once in
twenty-four ho'irs, wten tbe river ia in
its worst condfnon. Ordinarily tbe filt
er! will run Itom U o to four days with
out disturbing. ' . -
Tbe water, after passing througa the
filtering procMjs "ijfiatly clear, Irlght
and pure, and-freee rvJT!Sn tit itMpes
ded impurities Tie ctiiutaer receives
the water, tbr'y4for as pure and inadulter
ated as it is poss ble for aciencf and
skill to make it. '
That all our people will appreciate the
manner in which Mr. Cable hp thus
blended his love tor his falherind his
liberality for the ople of bis hnpo, it is
unnecessary to s y. His act i

which his generat e -bearted fath

as a holiday it give moit people the pri

snow last evening and a small blizztrd

blown dowa across the tracks and trains
delayed in consequence. Tbe road which

Travel on all the street railway lines
