The Cnittd States naval intelligence
office is the repository for all information
onraRtwrM relating to the navies of the
world and to all matters which in any way
have a bearing or influence upon the prose
cution of wiir at home or abroad. This
office was organized in 1SS2, and has since
steadily grow n in importance, until today
it is not on'y inutsii'nsHble to the navy
department, but it is the source from which
all progress in naval matters is announced.
It issues annually a publication under
the title of "Naval Intelligence General In
formation Series," the contents of which
consist of original and compiled articles,
in the naval world this publication ranks
as the highest authority, and its value as
mch us eviUui t by t he constant demands
for ci .Tuntarjd back numbers.
The object of the nuval intelligence of
fice is to collt ct, record, arrange, sift and
compile infomar.inn in neenrrinnre with a
jcheme ot cl.tssitication, and To diffuse
men miormnt on as may not be of a confi
lentijil naturr throughout the uuvy, for
the purpose of enabling t!ie governticut to
lake such measures in' time cf peace as
r.-i:l insure u n id.uess for and a vigorous
(roscctioii of war.
Iu order to d this with the best results
a staff of uava! officers specially qualified
for ii.rciiiiccnc; -tJt:r work and fj'.miliar
with foreiun lanpuHies is employed. The

range, siftv, con pile, and prepare original
unities fur the ai.jiuai publication; the
latter gather information from all the
sources at their command, consisting of
tu-o -!h-:cs, n.t! :c!;-, cf tvsl uillca to
American legations in Europe and of
ihips' intelligence officers.
To each of5cer of the office staff is as
signed Wie studv of one or more subjects in
such a manner as to secure the bet result,
it the same time equalizing the work. All
subjects are divided into branches, and
sach has a further subdivision according to
the nation to wh ch the brauch refers. In
addition to the information sent in by the
aval attaches and ships' intelligence' offi
cers, the office taff co'lerto irifnr"iation
from goveriime-jt reports, home and for
eign service, ani scientific publications,
books, pamphlets, magazines, journals and
papers, which' are thoroughly sifted by
every officer for information .relating to

The subjects with which the naval intel
ligence officer deals are:
The naval administration of all foreign
powers; their organization, efficiency and

Even at the present day there are no estab

used in naval maneuvers are experimental,

Will the Cenneil Aid or Detrr It An

Io response to a tele (from from bis as
sociatea in the directory of the Davenport
& Rack Island Railway company, Manager
Louderback left for Chicago last night to
conclude the formal sale of bonds to
Harris & Company. As soon as this sale is
made andthe company receives the money
therefrom the track laying operations in
the three cities will be wound up as soon
as possible so that the construction may
be completed this season. In Holine
there is very little to do, the relaying of
a few blocks of the Union line being all.
Ia Davenport there is considerable to do
while in Rock Island the chief desire is
lo have the Elm street line put in condi
tion for rapid transit. The company is
willing to relay the line with Johnston
tram rail to the corner of Nineteenth
street and Sixth avenue clear through to
Elm street and Seventh avenue where
the old track lays, and furthermore to
pave the bill with a single course of brick
providing the council will grant one con
dition :hat that part of the line wuich
closely paralells the Fourth avenue
double track on Fifth avenue between
Xiueieenih and Tweuty-firet streets be
put back one block, or to Six h avenue.
To secure this the corxpsny haseecuied
the consent of the majority of property
holders, and probably there would have
been no hesitancy about granting the
change but for the hostile attitude mani
fested by one alderman, not towards this
petition of the company's alone, but to
everything the company seeks in Rock
But the question involved is one that
looks beyond the feelings of an individ
ual alderman, or indeed the preferences
of property holders, either on the old
route for a few blocks or upon the line of
the desired change. The great end in
view is rapid transit to the bluff, which
The Arocs is satisfied can only be secur
ed through giving the company the
cbunge it seeks. It is no bluff on the
company's part, nor is it anything un
reasonable of the directors to say thtt
they will not rebuild the line on its pres
ent route for electricity, but run horse
cars there and save the expense of several
thousands of dollars in construction. If
they can get back into a comparatively
new territory for those few blocks and
away from (heir other lines they will feel
more like rebuilding and willim prove 1.1m
street into the bargain. Is this unreas
onablef Is it not simply ordinary bus
iness sense? li there a business man in
Rock Islaud who would rebuild and im
prove property off the main thorough
fares of trade as quick as he would on
them especially if the council hud the
right to keep bim away from a
more advantageous location? The
company is soon to have the
money necessary for rebuilding. Will
Rock Island, by delaying action in this
matter.fail to get its ehare until the money
is gone and it is too late, for the direc
tors will not appropriate any money for
construction beyond that which they re
ceive from the sale of bonds. The ques
tion resolves itself into simply tnls
horse cars on Fifth avenue and Twenty
first and to the bluff as well as on Ninth
street, or electric cars on Nineteenth
street and Sixth avenue and on Elm
street and Ninth street. The council has
the key to the situation Which will it
provide for? Which will he most ad
vantageous to our business men and the
people in general?
