Camp -Meeting Grounds. Tin
dall'8 Gkovk. Aug. 24. The first

little hornet. Some improvements are
noted among them a new cottage erec

The boarding house is under the
management of A.. 3. Johnson, of Rock

him, but will also be prepared to supply
tent holders with meats and provisions.

the direction of George Sedgewick.

MUNICIPAL HOUSE CLEANING
A 3Inlini fuprr Pr. DH'CH u Novrl
Idea of Arromplixhlii!: li.
The Mo'.ine Republican-Journal is en
deavoring to stir up a system of rnunici
pal reform in Lojse cleaning. It is a
notable fact, it says, plain to all who
are familiar with other town of its sizt,
that Moline is one of the most unkempt,
untidy towns in the state. Except in
rare instances the streets are littered with
paper and all kinds of rubbish from one
end to the other. Strangers visiting or
passing through the city notice and com
ment upon it to its great detriment, and
certainly both the health and the moral
and aesthetic warfare of the people de
mand a reform. The same paper con
This condition of things is traceable to
two causes; a certain lackness on the
part of authorities in the enforcement of
the ordinances; ana a lacK or personal
and municipal pride on the part of some
of our dwellers. Now for the remedy.
This condition is not entirely limited to
our own city, and hence in other places,
where similar conditions hava existed,
various means have been devised to
overcome it. On of the most success
ful methods has been the organization of
committees by the citizens to look after
the enforcement of the ordinances, the
institution of boards of health, and a
general crusade upon dirt, in which the
public shall be educated up to a nigner
olane of cleanliness and neatness, and by
precept and example t Might the beauty and
usefulness nay nece3siiy of the preven
tion of the accumulation of dirt and rub
bish upon the streets, by burning or
otherwise disposing of it in a cleanly and
healthful way; and absolute neatness in
their own houses and yards, not forgett
ing the border strip between the side
walk and street in front of their premises.
The accomplishment of this end seems
to be (though it were almost a shame to
say i') well nigh hopeless when left to
the "'lords of creation." out wnen me
women are finally sufficiently roused to
the necessity of taking hold of the mat
ter, the dirt and rubbish flies as if a cy
clone were after it. However, as women
probably delight in house-cleaning, per
haps it is fitting, and not to be won
It is said that such a movement is on
foot in Moline, and certainly the good
ladies who are interesting themselves in
the matter are deserving not only of com
mendation, but of the heartiest support,
both of which are hereby pledged by the

The JSew Bids for Hennepin Worit
Contractor Whitney Eilolaed Fnin
There is no lull in canal construction at
Milan so far as Engineer Wheeler is con
cerned. The old contractors whose bids
for the work were rejected tinder the
8-hour law technicality are anxious to re
ceive the new contract and are taking
every precaution to see that they do. So
far no other contractors have appeared,
and it begins to look as though the men
who came here from other places for the
purpose of figuring on the work covered
by these rejected contracts prefer to
leave matters as they stand , and not to
undertake to compete with these men
who were so unexpectedly disappointed
in their former attempt to secure the
work. If the old contractors get the
award when the bids are opened, work
can be commenced by them at once, but
if outside bidders put in bids there are
likely to be delays that will put all work
over till next year. The employment
of the engineers depends largely on the
commencement of this work.
Capt. Whitney has a Email force at
work on the lock pit site at the mouth of
the canal, out he is not crowding things
hard. There is enough work ahead to
keep the force busy a long time at the
present rate of movement. Contractor
Whitney has met with some unexpected
obstacles in the prosecution of his work.
Tuesday John Offerman, who holds a
mortgage on Offerman's island, upon
which grows considerable timber and
some of the trees of which Contractor
Whitney has been making use of in some
part of his work, appeared before County
Attorney Heioz, of Scott county, at Dav
enport, and demanded the protection of
the law in preventing further interference
with the timber growth on the island which
may some day revert to him. An appli
cation was thereupon made to Judge
Waterman for a temporary injunction to
restrain Mr. Whitney or any or all of his
agents from the seizure of any more of
the trees on this island, and the injunc
tion was promptly served. This will
make it necessary to go to some other
place for the trees that are needed in the
work. In some places along the line of
the canal there are trees till they are a
nuisance and cost money to get rid of. It
is a pity they were not planted by nature
wberc they might have done the greatest
amount of good to man.
WE'RE WITH THEM YET.
A roe. iblllty That the Kockford Tram
Will lisband Otherwise They Play
There was no game of ball at Rock
ford yesterday on account of the poor
condition of the grounds following the
rain earlv in the morning. It was de
cided to play two games today on ac
count of the postponement yesterday,
which possibly may be the last game that
will be played.
According to the reports sent out to
the Chicago papers the Rockford club is
ikely to disband tonight. The dis
patches state that ir Joliefs $500 forfeit
money has been returned to that man
agement that the Rockford club will be
disbanded tonight.and that will break up
the series to be played here.
Since Rockford has learned of the pen
nant being awarded to Rock Island-Mc
line it has dampened their ardor consid
erably, and life for their team is not
worth the living. The home team has
the pennant, anyway, and no matter
what happens we will be chronicled as
the champions of '92.
President Hodges of the Rock Island
Moline base ball club is in receipt of a
letter from Ohio, 111., speaking of an ex
cursion to Rock Island, Sunday, Sept. S.
and asking if there is to be a ball game
on that day which the management of the
excursion would like to advertise in con
nection with the excursion. At the pres
ent time Mr. Hodges is unable to answer,
owing to the unsettled state of affairs as
regards base ball.

FOR OUR ARSENAL.
Th Fall Amount Rock Island Re
ceives This Year.
A Tutal or S70.S5O Awarded by the
Buudry Civil BUI The Bridge
After all that has been said with refer
once to the limited appropriations made
by the late congress for the maintenance
of government institutions, Rock Island
arsenal has fared much better than has
been its custom at the hands of congress.
It received an appropriation aggregating
$76,250, which is a much greater amount
than any other arsenal in tne country
has received. This is due to the persis
tent efforts of Congressmen Cable of
Rock Island and Hayes of the district on
the Iowa 6ide, and no little credit is due
to Fred Hass of this city for the appro
priation in particular of $50,000 with
reference to the new floors for Rock IsN
and bridges. Mr. Hass expended much
time and energy in securing this appro
priation, so manifestly essential to
the preservation and safety of tri-city
commerce, add the success of the efforts
in thia direction must be a source of
gratification to Mr. Hass, as to Congress
men Cable and Hayes.
The appropriations in full for Rock
Island arsenal are appended:
For machinery and shop fixtures, $10.-
For general care, preservation and im
provement, tc, $6,000.
For care, preservation and maintaining
KocK island bridue $10,000-
For protecting Rock Island bridge by
means of sheer booms, $250.
For overhauling, reconstructing the
floor systems and substituting metal fir
wooden joists in the roadways of the
bridges connecting the Rock Island ar
senal and the cities of Rock Island and
Total appropriations, $76,250.
It is believed the new floors for the
Rock Island bridges will be put in this
fall, though Col. BufSngton has as yet
received no official notification as to when
to begin the work.
