The Rock Island Citizens' Improve-,
mi'nt association held its regular monthly
meeting at the rooms of the association
President Jackson presided, and John
Crubaugh as chairman of the committee
on twin-city banquet at the Harper, re
ported the results of soliciting subscrip
tions to defray the siime, and that there
was a surplus on hand. Vice President
Csrse, sb chairman of the special com
mittee on Hennep n canal terminus,
stated that the committee was preparing
its report, but that the committee was
not yet ready to repr rt.
The matter of the Twin-City Colum
bian celebration was taken up and in
formally discussed. Chairman Crubaugh
reported the organization of the Rock
Island committee, w th the furthtr infor
mation that such committee was now
awaiting the pleasure of the committee
from Moline. Many valuable suggestions
followed as to the nature of the celebra
tion, remarks being made by E. H. Guy
er, Dr. Calvin Trues iale. Phil Mitchell,
J, M.Buford, A. M. Blakesley, G. E.
Bailey and President Jackson. Of
course these were merely of the nature of
hints to the committee, as no further ac
tion will be taken until the joint com
mittee meets, and tt ere is a formal out
line of celebration drawn by it as the
outcome of a mutusl t xchange of views
President Jackson called George E.
Bailey to the chair, Vice President Carse
being at that moment absent, and made a
short speech in which he spoke of the
great benefits Rock Island bad received in
a public way from the Chicago street
railway syndicate, which was responsible
more than any other agency for our
paved streets which had met its obliga
tions with re'erente thereto without a
murmur, and that not only the entire
city but the properly holders abutting on
the paved streets tl.rough which the syn
dicate tracks are laid, hid found the
burdens of the special taxation for pav
ing purposes materially lightened through
the part the 6tre3t cr compsny had
cheerfully Dome. Notwithstanding this
the company al this time was denied the
privileges extended property holders of
paying for the pavement now in pro
gress on the 5-year installment plan, but
was obliged to pay the contractors
monthly and stand the chances ot the
conncil approving the work. Mr.
Jackson also spoke of the recent
ordinances of the Davenport & Rock Isl
and Rilway company before the council
and commended highly the course of the
municipal body in over-riding a disposi
tion to oppose tbe syndicate without
cause, and in conclusion offered the fol
lowing resolution which was upon motion
ofV. B. Ferguson unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That this association com
mends snd recognizes the enterprise
shown by the Davenport & Rock Island
strtet railway con pany in the construc
tion of their lines and the fine character
of the equipment of the road, that the
liberal outlay of tliis company has added
to the feeling of ctntldence that pervades
onr community, that we, as citizens and
tax payers would recommend to our mu
nicipal authorities- fair and iiberal treat
ment in ail matters that would not violate
tbe rights of tbe people or disturb a sound
public policy. We cr.mmend our city
council for what 1 bey have done in this
regard, and would suggest that the cUims
of all street railwuys to enter our city be
liberally and fairly considered.
Mr. Jackson then introduced the fol
lowing resolution, prefacing the same
with remarks of t.n explanatory and com
Resolved, Thai this association com
mends the efforts of the citizens of He
west end of our city to secure an early
completion of Ut.rnsey square, that in
view of its present condition a special
i ffort should be ciade on the part of the
city council to complete the filling and
grading, and we feel confident that tbe
people will cordn.lly cooperate by liberal
assistance in mating tbe square an orna
ment to our city and a benefit to tbe lo
cality where it is situated.
H. D. FolBom called attention to the
neglect in bringing sidewalks to grade in
certain localities and providing for per
A. M. Blakesley, Phil Mitchell and H.
D. Folsom spoke of the practise of per
mitting low limbs of trees to hang over
tbe sidewalks and streets, and also of tbe
neglect of tbe superintendent of streets in
the matter of mowing down tbe weeds in
the public thoroughfares, as had been.the
custom in previojs years.
President Ja:kson suggested that
a proposition be submitted to tbe
council by the association for tbe appoint
ment of a speciU commission to look
afterthe matter of keeping the weeds down
and trees trimm ;d on condition that tbe
city provide the men, the members of the
commission to assume the responsibility
of seeing that tie work is properly done.
The matter was upon motion deferred
until a future mseting for consideration.
Chairman W. B. Ferguson, of the com
mittee on manufactures, read a letter
with reference t J a valuable industry de
siring to know the prospects for organiz
ing a company here, which was referred
to the committee on manufactures to re
port at a special meeting to be held upon
call of the "president.
Secretary Sear?e read the resolution of
the association passed in July fixing ini.
tiation fees at $15 and annual dues at 10,
and asked an expression as to its mean
ing. Phil Mitchell moved that the in
itiation fee be held to include the first
yesr's dues, and the motion was adopted.
The association then adjourned.

and Reaching a lrc!s on.
"We have completed our inspection of
all the routes under consideration leading
to the mouth of Rock river," said Gen
eral Poe, chairman of the board of army
engineers on pernnnently determining
the location of the Hennepin canal ter
minus at the mouth of Rock river this
morning. 'Henceforth," the general
continued, "we shall devote ourselves to
a consideration among ourselves of all
the points and facts relative to the sub
ject before us. Wesbillhold no more
public meeVngs, though as lung as we are
here we will receive any suggestions
which may properly be offered bearing
upon the question. We propose to weigh
the matter carefully, and as thoroughly as
it is possible to do so, to the end that we
may reach a decision looking to the best
interests cf the government, and so far as
possible, to all concerned."
As a matter ofjcourse the officers are
rcticg.it as to their opinions ia the matter.
No iflort has been made to learn how
ihey feel on the subject, individually or
collectively, and as Gen. Poe said this
morning: "No decision will be made pub
lie until it goes to the war department,
from which source anything of a public
nature must eminate. To tell the truth,"
he said, with a smlle."wedon'tknoweach
other's views on the suhject. We have
refrained from expressing an opinion to
each other so far. Now we propose to
compare notes and see how we stand."
It may be added the officers are all
very mnch in earnest, and the public may
rest assured that whatever line the engi
neers adopt, it will be the most practic
able and the best for the canal, and that
is all that can be consistently expected.
The Unitid States marshal for the
northern district of Illinois yesterday
served the formal notices on all proper
ty holders along the Rock river route of
the Hennepin canal of the purpose of the
government to bring condemnation pro
ceedings against each and all for tbe ac
quirement ( f the land necessary for the
canal's right of way.

The Construction of the Earthworm.
A slight acquaintance with the anatomy
of an eart hworm enables us to understand
why the body is divided into a number of
rings, or "segments," as they are more
generally termed. The internal orgaps,
instead of being distributed among tbe
segments, are for the most part repeated
front segment to segment. It follows,
therefore, that when tbe gardener's spade
shears off several inches of a worm the an
imal is not deprived of one or more essen
tial organs, but only of a less or greater
number of parts of these organs.
Spalanzuni was the first naturalist who
made about 200 years ajjo experiments
of this kind, which proved, asasubsequent
writer pointed out, that "by a strange
paradox in nature, the most useless and
contemptible lives are, of all others, ex
tinguished with tbe greatest difficulty."
In addition to these advantages in its
construction, the earthworm has a certain
amount of cimninc. which must enable it
to escape some foes. On mild, wet evenincrs I
