Much concert has been expressed of
late by Rock Island merchants on account
of the report which has gone out that the
Rock river bribes would be closed while
tbe repairs which h&ye been ordered are
being made. This being the busy season
when the farmers ure tbe bridges the
mc st. the anxiety felt by our merchants
is very natural i.nd it would indeed be a
great inconvenience to tbe farmers as
well. Upon investigation by The Abgcs
this morning it was found that the bridges
will not be closed, as one side will be re
linked while tie other side will be left
open for traffic, and in this way the diffi
culty that it was first thought that tbe re
pairs would occi.sion will be avoided.

funeral will occur from his late home in

at 2 o'clock, and tbe interment will be
made in the Genain Lutheran cemetery.

THE FILTER PLANT.
Tae Km rmoB.e;aiiipii"a ef Wan r
by ..the Ktret Rr.il m ay Syndicate
Powi r H ailnn and its EfTcru
The return of Hon. Bun T. Cble to
Rock Island baa naturally revived inter
est in the question of filtering the city's
water suipiy. Some time since The
Abgus vehemently remonstrated against
the manner in wlji-h certain selNcocBf
tuted iri-.ics sought to cast discredit upon
Mr Ctble's magnanimous gift to tbe
city, and asked in fie interest of furness
and justice that they refrain from further
unfavorable comment. Being fully ac
quainted with the noble motive which
prompted the dr,nor, Tfe Argus was
perfectly sHlisflid that Mr. Cable would
rfjtct promptly any joint ownership in
tbe plant by tbe city, as bad been sug
gested, or anv interference whatsoever,
with the proj.-ct he had gratuitously and
mgnnnimou ly undertaken.
Mr. Cable has fu ly justified us in that
belief sini-e hm return. He has expressed
himself us fn ing greatly distppointed at
tbe partial failure of the underUUag, or
rathfr tbe incapacity of tb.
plant, due mainly to the lack of
pumping powf r. but unhesitatingly states
that, he propose to rectify the error in
some manmr. Previous to returning
borne he had written the filler company
that'herviiits Vf their work were not
sati-fact ry 10 him, and something futths
er would be necessary on their part before
the plant could be accepted. Mr. Cable
expects a representative of the company
here soon, when tbe whole situation will
begone over thoroughly in all its phases.
Tbe wiihilra.' ttl of the street railway
company as a d til y consumer, h is ob
viated the difficulty to some extent, but
as contiricepcies are apt to arise at any
time wh cn will compel it to seek city
service aeaii, temporarily at least, it, is
hardly possible to make an accurate esti
mate of he Uily consumption of water.
L' st month 'he company was furnished
11.000,000 gi'lons, and th? general aver
age per dny is about 3'X).000 gallons, but
on one ocunsion it reached to -414,000
gallons. Then there is an enormous
waste of water among private consum
ers to contend gainst. If this could be
checked in some manner it would lessen
the pressu-e of the pumps, which are now
run with liv.ld reserve power and make
it possible to secure absolutely pure
water at a nominal cost to all.
Wt'rd fcittiins Alone Xictly. Thank
Because The Argus has seen fit to
take the part of Rock Island against the
unjust criticisms made by Davenport
papers in holding tbe city accountable
for the deeds of one selfish citizen, the
Somebody ought to go round to The
Argus office end brace up the boys there.
They're in the worst kink of a funk be
cause the Davenport papers have been
crowing over tbe approval of tbe canal
route that Bboota boats across the Missis
sippi over to tbe Iowa shore for a harbor,
as against the route that provided a splen
did batdn on the north shore of Rock river
readily accessible to the commerce of this
Tee Abgus force needs no bracing up,
thank you, when It comes to standing up
for Rock Island and of contradicting any
false statements about tbe city, intended
to do it injury, or of placing the blame
for an injury which has been done Rock
Island just where it belougs, or of with
holding condemnation of whosoever may
do Rock Island an injury, no muter who
he is or what be is. No! no. The Abgus
needs none of tbe bracing up the Union
can offer. It has gotten along bo far in
upholding and advancing Rock Island's
interests very nicely, and in many instan
ces has found the Union on tbe other
side of the fence, but it has gone right
along just the same, and in tbe end has
come pretty near getting there, too.
But listen to tbe Union's conclusion:
Rock Island has has been defeated but
it has not changed its views and has no
apologies to make for the stand it took
against an engineering wrong based on a
causeless and slanderous pretext.
This is a pretty story for the Union to
send out to the world, isn't it that Rock
Island has been defeated. The Argus
holds that Rock Island has not been de
feated. It bas gotten the canal as much
as it ever had it, and is not going to lose
interest in the measure now or fail to
realize its benefits simply because it did
not come quite as near us as we would
have wished. Tbe best way possible to
drive the benefits of the canal to Daven
port is to adopt the Union's policy, that
that city is alone to be benefitted. We
don't believe that, and wouldn't say so if
we did, unless we had some grudge
against Rock Island. Furthermore, Rock
Island has no hones to pick with the en
gineers. They have done us no wrong.
They have merely done their duty. The
wrong is with the greedy property holder
wlo first revealed to them that duty.
