FOR THE FLGOD-STKICKEN
Gubernalorial Appeal for Aid in
A Proclamation leaned by dioT. Klfer
as t the MalTVrrra In Flood
d Ulatrlrta In the
Thk Argus is in receipt of Gov. Fifer's
proclamation relative to the flood strick
en districts along the Mississippi and Illi
nois rivers, the gubernatorial appeal be
State op Illinois Executive Of
fice Springtleld, May 24, 1892 Per
sonal observation of the flooded districts
along the Mississippi and Illinois rivers,
embracing many hundred square miles,
convinces me that organized effort on the
part of the people of the state is neces
sary for the relief of the destitute and
needy. Thousands of men, women and
children have been driven from their
homes and rendered destitute. Neigh
boring communities are now carrying the
entire burden of suDporting those whose
homes and property have been
swept away, and this bur
den ought not to be borne much
longer without outside assistance. The
flood sufferers are mainly of the agricul
tural class, and the possibility of their be
coming again self-supporting depends
upon their ability to raise a crop and re
sume their vocation as tillers of the soil.
Now, Therefore, I call upon the people
of the state of Illinois to contribute of
their abundance, money, food and cloth
ing for the relief of those who have suf
fered from the floods. 1 urge the local
authorities in all our cities and towns to
hold public meetings to the end that op
portunity be given our people to show,
in a practical manner, their sympathy
and charity for those who have suffered
severe, losses and who are in need of as
sistance. I suggest that contributions in money
be sent to the Hon. Edward S. Wilson,
State Treasurer, Springfield. Illinois',
and that contributions of food and
clothing be sent to Dr. William A
Haskell, President of the State Board
of Health, Alton, Illinois. These gentle
men will, in behalf of the donors,
promptly and judiciously make distribu
tion of ail money and supplies received
by them. By the Governor,
Josepit W. FlFER.
I. N. Peauson, Secretary of Siate.
The governor accompanies bis pro
clamation by a personal letter to the
A rods in wtich he urges assistance
and co-operation in the matter of the
appeal. He has personally seen the
desolation and knows the wants and
Batterings of the unfortunate.
In our sister state of Iowa, The
Argcs may add, a proclamation by Gov
ernor Boies on the Sitne subject met
with liberal response all over the state
and Illinois will do so. Toe Argus
would like to see a systematic effort
made in Rock Island and would be
happy to assist such a movement in
any way possible.
A Xtw Change In the t lt. l.A I'.

ble, and the first will be begun tomorrow
night. The coaches will be kept in the
east end of the round house at present.
This will bring several new crews of
trainmen to the city at once besides a
