Tbe Moiine Y. M. C. A. building, it is
rumored, is about to pass into the hands
of a syndicate, but of whom the syndi
cate is composed if at all. the Republican"
Journal is not so positive. Anyhow it is
known that Col. W. E. Stevens has ob
tained an option on the bonds, with the
privilege or redeeming them within a
certain time, and is also endeavoring to
have the claims of the lien holders as
signed to Uim. If sufficient funds are
forthcoming it is not improbable that the
colonel, or possibly someone represented
through him, would get control of the
property. Their object is said to be to
convert the auditorium into an opera
bouse, a feature of city life in which
Moiine is now wofolly deficient. If tbe
gentlemen interested in thia enterprise
succeed in carrying it out they will con
fer a benefit upon tbe city that all w.ll
Another rumor is in circulation to the
effect that a prominent Moiine attorney,
who in a moment of enthusiasm contrib
uted some dollars to the Y.M. C. A.
while it was in the full bloom of pros
pective prosperity. Is mad in fact, has
made up bis mind to stir up the dry
bones, and have an account taken of tbe
manner in which so mnch money has
been sunk, squandered or foo'.ed away. It
is understood that be has offered to take
the caso without foe and without price,
but whether or not the state officers will
accept Is not yet apparent.
The -.op" Ongnt to be Cnlformrtl.
The Atigus of last evening spoke of
tbe good appearance made by the Moiine
police in tbe matter of regulation caps.
It is to Cbief of Police Kiuilsen'a credit
that be has always exerted parlicultr
pains in this respect, and Chief Miller has
succeeded admirably in keeping bis men
in some sort of style during the past two
seasons, helmets of proper design being
worn, but tbe force is starting out this
winter on the ragged road as far as uni
forms are concerned, f r if there are two
of the men with caps alike tbey have s
caped the observation of The Akgtjs.
Now the city appropriates f 5 a moiith
for each man for clothing. It does not
do this because of tbe physical beauty of
the men nor because of the particular ser
vice of the particular men fortunate
enough to be on tbe fcrce, to tbe city.
Nor does The Argcs believe the men
would take kindly to tbe idea that tbe
money is given to them in tbe
I ght of charily. Nothing of tbe kind.
There is no more reason why the city should
buy clothing for police than for any
other municipal officer. Tbe city makes
an allowance for clothing each month so
that the men my be properly uniformed,
and no man should be permitted on the
force who does not comply with this re
quirement. The police should wear reg
ulation caps as well as suits, and tbe man
who is too good to do so, or to wear a
star, or carry the insignia of office, oug'jt
to give way to someone who will.
Rock Island is getting along to that
point where all these things count, and
Cbief Miller should insist that all men
clothed with police powers, except, per
haps, one or two, detailed for detective
work, be clothed in uniform as well. At
any rate lei's have no hlf wav work a
whole policeman or none, please, Mr.
