How the Council Discussed the Ap
Tfce Proportionate I latilbutioa or
Fand for the Ensatac Veer
the Bent FrrhapA that ha
Ever Bera .Hade.
The city council msde its appropria
tions for the current year at its adjourned
meeting last evening. The distribution
of the various funds as made by the al
dermen in committee of the whole and
later reported to, aod adopted by the
council is, perhap. the wisest and best
ever made by a Rock Island council.
The ofScial record elsewhere contains the
figures. Tbe two most in? portant funds,
that is those which must provide for per
manent improvements this year tbe
tire atd the library received the consider
ation on the part of the council they were
entitled to, and the best of it is the other
funds were not cuita'led as much as
might have been exacted, tbe way the
available money was stretched out an d
made tod) the most good where most
needed, beins an exceedingly agree
able disappointment. The fire depart
ment received 15 SOU to equip the paid
department and rui it one year, wbile thp
library has f 3,700, enough to make the
improvements the library board centem
plates in going into its new quarters.
There were some entertaining discus
sons during the committee s deliberations
Director J. W. We:ch. of the library
botrd, address d the council and sub
mitted some interesting figures. The
total expenditures of the Rock Island pub
lic library during the past year were ?3,
463.09; the total cumber of volumes
S'ued for home use, 21,327; lo account
s kept of the use of books ia the refer
once e'epsrtment. but it is estimited that
it least 7.7 0 sre consulted during !he
"ear, which would rnke a total of 29.
i27. Tfce to'al tumiier now drawing
'jocks is 2,2u(i. acd only 51 per cent of
books drawn are works of tction. The
total attendance of visitors in tLe year
was 35,529. Mr. Welch also spoke of
the pupils in the public schools using
books, the total beinz 2,437. In one
school room in tte city 222 volumes on
American history have been drawn on the
barter's crd, d n idJitioc to this,
several pupil's carJs hve been in con
stant use ia the school. The books so
drawn on American history, have been
consulted in tbe scnocl room 3.555 times,
and tasen home by pupils for consults
t on 2 25G limes, the total use being 5,
M4. This is a report of only one school.
Twelve other teachers use cards in the
sme way, but no record has been kept of
Alderman Corken mde a gallant fight
f'rthe fire department, and succeeded
almirably, the council in recozniz ng the
itaportaot duty of th j hour as regards
the flre department as well as the library,
s.iOWing its r roper regard for those insti
tutions which are of greatest interest and
Tulue to the public.
Alderman Evans made a short but
splendid spetch on street work. He fa
vored all future improvements by special
assessment in accordance with the policy
adoi-ted two years ao. He rightly held
that all tnnev teiided cut of the gan
eral fund in improvements of a tempo
rary nature was as good as thrown away.
Lt tte improvements be permanent, and
ot.ly such work done by general taxation
as is absolutely necessary to keep up re
Briefly stated, the council did its duty
well, and every alderman has reason to
feel proud of the wise apportionment of
the funds made last night.
