For tale in Rock island by Harts & Bahnsen, 8d Ave. and 20th street.
Observer Wa!z of the sienal service
station at Davenport inaugurated his new
code of weather signals Monday. The
appearance from the fltg staff on Masonic
temple across the river, wherein the signal
seryice station is situated, of a plain white
flag witn black triangular pennant im
mediately beneath attracted much atten
tion and no little inquiry was made as to
its significance. The white fl ig indicated
clear or fair weather, and the pennant's
position indicated colder weather. Had
the pennant been place i above the white
flag the reading would havo been, "fair
and warmer weather."
Inasmuch as fl igs denoting coming at
mospherical changes will be regularly die
played henceforth, an txplaiation of
what the signals indicate, may not only
be read with interest, but may be worthy
of preservation for reference in the fu
ture. It is furnished The Argus by
The usual black fltg. indicative of
cold wave, will be supplanted by a num
ber of other pennant signals. These ad
ditional signals consist of a plain white
flag, a combination white and blue flag, a
triangular black flag and the familiar
black centre cold wave flag. A study of
the signal meanings is appended:
No. 1, a white flag Fix feet square, in-
cates clear or fair weither. N.i. 2, a
blue flag six feet square, indicates rain or
snow. No. 3. white and blue in parallel
oars, six feel tquare, indicates that local
rains or showers will occur, and that the
rainfall will not be general. No.
4. a black triangular flag, four
feet at the base and six in length,
always refers to temperature; when
placed above Nos. 1, 2 or 3 it indicates
warmer weather; when placed below
Nos. 1, 2 or 3 it indicates cc. d r weather;
when not displayed the indications are
that the temperature will remain station
ary or that the change in temperature
will not vary more than four deerees
from the temperature of the same hour of
the preceding day. No. 5. a white flag
six feet square with black square in center
indicates the approach of a sudden and
decided fall in temperature. This signal
will not be displayed unless it is expected
that the temperature will fall to 42 de
grees or lower and is usually ordered at
least 24 hours in advance of the cold
wave. When No. 5 is displayed No. 4
is always omitted.
When displayed on poles the signals
are arranged to read downward; when
displayed from horizontal supports a
small streamer is attached to indicate the
point from which the signals are to be
Thus the signals may be interpreted as
No. 1 alone indicates fair weather, sta
20. 2 alone indicates rain or snow,
No. 3 alone indicates local rains, sta
No. 1 with No. 4 above it indicates
fair weather, warmer.
No. 1 with No. 4 below it indicates fair
No. 2 with No. 4 above it indicates
warmer weather, rain or snow.
No. 2 with No. 4 below it indicates
colder weather with rain or snow.
No. 3 with No. 4 above it indicates
warmer weather with local rains.
No. 3 with No. 4 below it indicates
colder weather with local rains.
No. 1 with No. 5 above it indicates
fair weather, cold wave.
No. 2 with No. 5 above it indicates
wet weather, cold wave.
The agricultural department also pro
vides for a code of signals by blasts from
whistles, method of reaching persons lo
cated at a distance from the signal office
where the flags would not be visible. Ob
server Walz will probably arrange with
some factory managers for the use of
their whistles for the signals.
The whistle code is as follows:
The warning 6igoal to attract attention
will oe a long blast of from 15 to 20 sec
onds duration. After this warning signal
has been sounded, long blasts or from
four to tix seconds duration, refer to
weather, and short blasts, of from one to
three seconds duration, refer to tempera
ture; those for weather to be sounded
Thus one long blast indicates fair
Two long, raid or snow.
Three long, local rains.
One short, lower temperature.
Two short, higher temperature.
Three short, cold wave.
Combinations of these will read as fol
lows: One long, alone, fair weather, station
Two long, alone, rain or snow, station"
One long and one short, fair weather,
Two long and two short, rain or snow,
One long and three short, fair weather,
Three long and two short, local tains
and higher temperature.
Combinations will probably be repeated
a few times, with an interval of several
seconds between, to avoid possibility of
error in reading the forecasts.

What MoIIae Hay Have If It Adopts
Capt. Lyn' (eheat With Refer
ence to Ike Pool.
The work in the pool, at Moline, is pros
greasing so rapidly that the appropriation
will be exhausted, and tbe channel deep
ened for a width of 200 feet, by the mid
dle of November. The work is being
done according to tbe plans originally
made by Col. Flagler, and when finished
a little more than half the work originally
contemplated will be fiouhed. The plans
were for a channel 400 feet wide. Tbe
upper part of it had been completed to
150 feet in width and the lower part to
125 feet. The present cutticg makes it
200 feet wide. In addition to this, 1,000
feet in length at the upper end has been
cut to the full width of 400 feet. The
In loosing at tbe woik one cannot
help being struck by the fhet that an op
portunity for river improvement that
would be of incalculable benefit to Mo'
line is being lost. A half dozen gentle'
men who were looking at it a few days
since, were discussing the need of a 400
foot cbatnel, when one of them asked
Capt. Lyon bow much it would coat to
excavate tbe chaunel to .hut width if it
could be done now while tbe cofferdam
is already in. Capt. Lyon replied that
$150,000 would do tbe work.
"Why not, then," was the next ques
tion, "cut it out, fill in the space between
tbe 400 foot channel and the Moline
shore and make a beautiful park for Mo
line?" Capt. Lyon said that the cutting
oS of this channel would make Moline a
fine harbor, imo which any boat that
runs on the river here could enter, and
give us facilities for shipping not excelled
by anv city.
This is a matter that Moline should
consider at once. A cofferdam that
would cost f 35,000 to rebuild after it is
gone is in place, the bed has been sur
veyed and the (takes showing the 400
foot channel are in place, and all 'he
possibilities of tbe place can be seen. If
an appropriation could be secured, from
tbe government, to make a harbor here
the lmprovemei.t micbt be made, but
there is no hope for that. There is no
time to wait, and if tbeie vere, there is
not one chance in a thru , and that the
present congress would ui.ka an appro
priation for it. What is done must be
done by the city or by individual enter
prise. Large as tbe sura is that would be
required to do tbe work and to acquire
the riparian rights, we believe it would
be tbe best investment the city could
make It would eive us a mng .ificent
park on tbe river that would be crowded
every pleasant day the year round.
If the city will not or cannot do it, then
private enterprise chould tuke it up. Tiie
recovered land would be worth m re than
its cost, since it would be located right at
tbe river Undine, could be reached by tbe
railroads, and would make such silts for
manufacturing purposes as the ci'.y has
That all this work is practical is un
questioned. The engineers who have
looked it over have decided that it is only
a question of tbe money to do the work.
Moline can raite it. Will it do it T
