Superiateadent H. Ilntcfa, of tbe
Mnliee public arhools, contt in elites mak
ing an effort the coming winter to in
fcUfc urate a course of university ixtension
letters iu that city. The Kcpuhlican
Jornal ays, "trie lecturers will if obs
toiabd toms from Caioego, which is but
a tew hoars from Moline, aud tbey will
thus lot little time io coming. Tbe
topics to be leciured on will be of liracti
cal benefit to our working men and others
who. have never bid tbe time to get a
school training. Mr. Ha'ch has an idea
that Library hall would be a good place
far the meetings, the object being to get
a small or medium tized room rttlier than
a largo one, which would be less suited
to the work. The local lectures will no
doubt bj attended with a great deal of
interest, and result ia a ks'.ing benefit to
the working people of this busy commun
ity, as tbe lectures no douit will be kept
up year after year."
Tbe university ixcension movement
which has begun to attract widipread at
tention iu America, has ben c tiled the
Salvation army of education. It is an
attempt to carry tbe university to the
people when the people cannot go to tbe
university. It is for ihu purpass of
meeting the great popular movement in
search of knowledge, not by icviting
students to Uave their homes, but by
sending teachers to the men atd woiien
whose lives are flxod round tbe centers
of industry. The university tx'ension
movement had its origin in its present
form in England. College professors
located in the workins;men'j districts in
Lundon and gave ltctures in the hemes
of tbs toilers, finally establishing per
manent institutions tp carry on tbe wort,
of which Toynbee hall in Eist London is
a notable txample- Io 18S1 an Ameri
can proftssor f.ttending a meeting in
London got an insight into the plan and
afterward lectured on it in this country.
Contemporary with tbe English move
ment there bad developed in America a
system of popular higher education
by means of local lectures in connec
tion wiih colleges, mechanics' institutes
and lyceums, but not until 18S4 was the
idea of a system of itinerant lectures in
augurated. Oie of the foremost agencies
in furthering lite work in tbiscountiy has
been Chautauqua, which tins been a
pioneer in the movement. Some of tbe
brightest young professors ia our great
schools, men fitted more properly for
popular teaching, have been sent foita to
deliver lectures to the mechanics, busi
ness men and all sorts of toilers. The
American society of the extension of
University teaching was organized in
Philadelphia in February, 3S90, and is
doing a good work in the east.
In tbe west it is proposed to make the
state universities, as weil as other schools,
the centers of university extension teach
ing, and it is likely that ere long the
legislature of Illinois will be asked to make
an appropriation in aid of tbe work, as
has been done in New York state. Chi
cago is being made headquarters for
carrying on the movement in the we6t.
Onr Cipenrer Square.
The Moline Republican Journal has
deigned to say a good woid for a Rock
Island enterprise, which is highly grati
fying: In one way Rock I-land is far
In advance of Moline. We refer to its
appreciation of public parks, and its
efforts to secute them whenever
and wherever possible. Take
Spencer park in Rock Island If the
aldermen of this city would hear the
comment of Moline people, whenever
they pass this beautiful place, their own
indifference would make them blush.
And yet they are willing to undertake
everything else needful in Moline but
that. We would like to look upon a
Moline alderman who is willing to cham
pion in the council a movement that will
result in tbis city si-curing a public pirk.''
If the Republican-journal keeps on it
will be in accord after awhile, no: only
with the enterprise shown in Rock Island
in this particular, but with our city in gen
eral. The Moline paper would staud
much better in the light of public senti
ment were it to encourage mutual good
feeling rather than attempt to Etard in
the way of it, as it has.

Thero is a sensation smouldering in the
village of Hampton. For some weeks
past there has been considerable talk
about certain of the village officials being
short in their accounts, and latsly a com
mittee of three members of the village
board was appointed to investigate the
matter, and are still investigating. It is
thought that one of the officers is about
fro out of tha way, while others are in
still deeper, so it goes. At any rate the
finances of the village are in a prc'.ty bad
muddle. It is understood that legal ad
vice will be sought soon with a view to
forcing the supposed recreant officials to
make good the discrepancies unless they
come down gracefully when ttas amount
U ascertained. This tbey may do if they
are shown short by the investigation.
