The annual report of Gem. D. W. Flag
ler, chief of ordcanca, made to the iec
ratarj of wr in October for the s:al
year e-.diog Jane 30. 1193, has been is
Rued in pamphlet form, and the following
ia the full text of the portion relating to
Rick Island arsenal;
During the fiscal year ending Jane SO,
1(91. a viaduct was built over the rail
road tracks in Rock Island, the frequent
passage of trains and the switching of
cars at the bridge end having delayed
traffic and rendered it dangerous. Tbe
iron work was supplied by the Ptainix
Iron company of Pennsylvania, while the
stone and wood work we a done by the
United States, aa owing to the facilities
it waa fuuid to be more economical to do
it thus than to let it out by contract.
The viaduct is a thorough span of 100
feet, reached from the island by the old
hrldge, raised to aa inclination of oae in
S3 and continued by two 45 foot girders
laid at tbt inclination. Full details ot
the construction are given to appetidii.
ttepairs were made to the draw mech
anism or ttie main bridge Proposals
were called for Auk. 2. 1891. for the
drilling required to remove rock from the
channel kiidinz in'o the water power
pool. Tbe proposals stated that about
10,000 boles, averaging three feet in
depth and of sufficients;? to admit dyn
amite cartridges one and one-fourth
inches in diameter would be required.
Tbe bids stated the rate per lineal foot to
be churned, and the contract was award
ed o '.he Th imson Vitn Depoele E ee'ric
Mining company for 12 cents per foot.
The average coat of drilling by hand the
kind of rock for which tbe electric drills
were used was about 20 6 per font. The
n hand pump with leather valves or
dinarily used wore out rapidly, and
pumps of galvanized iron, with a bullet
of marble tor a valve, replaced them
ith great advantage.
The excavation was made to increase
the channel that had been cut through
tbe U dge at the head of water-power
pool in former years, from widths ot 1S5
to 150 ftet to a width of 200 feet, and to
deepen the channel throughout to four
feet. Tbe general depth of the old chan
nel waa four fet, but there were deponits
in it that required removaL Further de
tans are given in appendix.
Work on the erection of the few build
ings still required to complete tbe plan
ror tne arsenal has been totally suspend
ea on account or tne failure or congress
to make any appropriation for continuing
tne wort. .
The manufacture of field and siege ar
tuiery carriages has been transferred to
this arsenal, and the plant therefor is be
ing established. A small appropriation
for additional machines and fixture and
some improved facilities for profeecuttng
tnis wore economically are very neces
sary. Tne manufacture of nearly al
equipments for the army is already es
Ititmsned at this areennl.
