The improvements which have been
made in the Cable fit r plant at the Rock
Island waterworks ate rspidly approach
ing completion, Davis & Co. having put
in the finishing touctes ia the way cf
plumbing, and ptinttrs are now at work,
and meanwhile Supeiinttndentof Water
works Murrin is directing gome advan
tageous alteratiors ir the well. "It is
expected that by Tut eday at the out9lde
we will be ready to siart tie filter," eaid
Supt. Murrin this mr. rning, "and I have
no doult whatever atiout ti e success of
the plant as enlarged ind improved."
It is expected that 0. H. Jewell of the
Jewell Filter company, will come dovn
from Chicago to supirinttnd the starting
of the filter and see tt at evt rything works
satisfactorily. , Mr. Cable, to whose
liberality our people are indebted for
this great improvement, has spared
no expense or pa ns to insure the
success of the filter with the increased
capacity for which b 3 has provided. It
will now have acaptcity for 3 000.000
gillons per day, and to insure this two
Deane pumps of 3.000,000 gallons each
have been provided; and another com
plete filter the same size of the original
three has been added. Thus there are in
all, four tubs of 750 000 gallons filter
ing capacity each, or a total of 3.000,000
gillons in 24 hours.
This insures to Rock Island one of the
best waterworks filter in tbe country. and
t' e ben t8 3f tbe improvement will natur
ally be partaken of by all our people who
consume river water, which, in Rock Isl
and, is a very large per centage of the
Not only is the filter an improvement
of which the people v.'ill be proud from a
menchanical and sanitary standpoint, but
according to tbe pirns of the donor for
its enlargement it will be an ornament to
the city. The building originally erected
has been provided with an ornameD'a1
brick ftont, while .t is nicely floored
tbrougbout and arlis.icallv painted, so
tbat it will afford pride to submit it to tbo
inspection of visitor, j ist as is the
case with the waterworks building
All in all. wilh the new Holly pump
and tbe filter plant Reck Island will have
a waterworks system which will invite
comparison wilh ttmt.of any city of its
size in tbe country, wiile it will excel a
great mtny .

An important matter likely to cf,me be
fore the city council meeting ntxt Mon
diy night will be a petition or memorial,
ti which reference has hitherto been
made, looking to the calling of a water
way convention at llock Island within
the next few weeks to consider the needs
of the Mississippi between St. Louis and
Minneapolis. The mivement is in the
hands of wide-awake men in Rock Island
and if the proper encouragement is ex
tended. Rock Island v. ill probably secure
one of tbe largest conventions of the
winter. None will doubt the importance
and advantage of such a convention and
all will readily concede that from the
source to tbe mouth of the Mississippi
there is no city better located or better
suited for the holdiDg of it thsn Rock
This city, too, ougl t to have a repres
sentative at the meetli g of the executive
committee of the waterway convention
to he he!J at Washington next week.

Jiu'k Prince, the chtmpion long rlis-
Urine bicyclist who wt.s in Rock Island
and Davenport last fail talking of ar
ranging a G.cvenins; b cycle race for the
championship of the t-i citits, and who
left us after participating in a 5 mile race
with a horse at tbe Davenport fair
grounds, has been in Omaha this winter.
Two or three weeks aj;o he presided over
8 6-2vening international championship
race in which a half dizen fbet profes
sionals were, entered. The public has
came to talk of Jack'B races as "fakes,''
and they make this remark about that
one. So he arranged a similar race be
tween amateurs, adv .Ttisirg it as "A
Great Big Fake," in tl e largest letters ob
tainable, and advising the public to call
at the Colisoum on tho evening of Jan.
25 for particulars. About 5.000 people
paid the entrance fee that nicht to see
what Prince's fake waj. The next even
ing the race died a natural death for want
of patronage. But P; ince posed in his
natural and proper co.or, nevertheless.
