The Plan Tropoaed.
Davenport. Jan. 24. To the chair,
man and members of the Tr -City con
ference: The special committee to whom
you assigned the duty of formulating a
plan for attracting visitors a'.id possible
inVt-ttors to this locality during the
World's Columbian txpobiti in. respect
fully submits ibe following report:
Tne full membership of the committee
was present at the appointed time, with
the exception of the representatives of
Milan who had no part in the suggestions
herein named In view of toe fact that
this center of population and business in
terests has long been known as the tri
ckles of the Mississippi it was deemed
wise to retain the name, and if possible,
to empnasize us meaning, tub will ex
plain the Dc me chosen under which in
corporation is deemed advisable. The
committee disc aim any intention to
si gbt Milan, bu . believe that it must en
joy its fair proportion of whatever beu-
this result troui the advertising move
ment. The first point considered by your com
mittee fetts to so map out a rogramme
that both 6iv.es of the river should be
fairlj recognized and that the share of
eicti ot the three cit:es bhculU have close
reference to its popul ition. The work
at d honors distributed in this way, it is
hoped that no merely local priile can ever
aritc to doiuina'e the common good, acd
that all may work in unity for the end in
view, which is a common development

It is thought best by your rnmmrtte
to apportion or distribute tie stock
among the tri-cities as nearly as may be
on the bant of population This would
puce one-hair ot tne stock in ors assion
of Davenport and one. half in ti e hand
of Rock Island and a'o i e. ffj
While this is not designed to be pri
marily a corporation of profit in the usual
sense of the word, it is hoped that some
thing tangible in the way of returns may
be realized. As a guarantee fund is pro
vided for, to meet expected ou' lays, no
provision has been made for any profits
tnat may accrue. In the event of real'z
ing this possibility it Is recommended
that profits be divided accord ne to tLe
holders of the stock, not pcrsontlly, but
for the public god. If such a reau't is
secured it is rt-commendrd that one-half
the revenue, after all expenses (ball bava
been met, be donated to the Roc's Island
ni Moline Mechanical Exposition asso
ciation; and that the other half be donat
ed to the Davenport public park fund
When it comes to disposing of the
stock it is recommended thtt an assign
ment be made among the hotels, street
car line", factories, banks, real es'a'e
dealers, brewers, liverymen and others
1 kely to receive direct material advan
tages. It may be found dssirabli; to ar
range for smaller subscriptions than the
vlue of the one shire of stock, and this
!ik; al! other a ggeslions is thrown out
for whatever it may appear to be worth
to the body wbica created the commit
tee. Your comm'ttee apprccia'es the value
of a correct map sti me the local ceoc-
rapby of the three cities and vi'-ini'.y. the

probable cost of such a wmk you-com-mittee
does not make s..ecifi : rc r imei -
datior.s. It also suggests that ao t upri .
prite souvenir might have a po.-i'i e
value if placed in the l ands of vi-iiort .
It has ocsurred to your commute') that
the item of expense may be overcome by
favorable action on the part of tleei'y
councils of the three cities. While these
municipal bodies miht not fell at
liberty to appropriate money for
stock in the Tri Citv Imnrovrment
league, it is clearly a 1 pri
mate expense for them to secure
maps which have not only a temporary
but also a permanent value. Maos so
obtained, whetlur in the original or in
copy, would belong to the ci.les contri
ou'iiig to their co3t. The benefit o' this
movement, which seeks to add mor; fac
tories to this locality and give employ
ment to more hands, must be distributed
among all the people. It is therefore
evident that the people should help them
selves rather than that the e x ense
should fall upon a few. If tb city
cncUprprl tie' money lot maT
this end will be reached judiciously and
equitably. The map having been se
cured, it will not involve treat expense
to secure hundreds or even thousands of
copies, reduced in size but very useful in
fifing aid holding attention upon this fa
A further step lies in the direction of
securing articles of incorporation which
your committee does cot feel warranted
in doing until the details have been de
cided upon.' .

Mall Carriers' Salaries.
It may prove somewhat tautalous to
mail carriers now in the service of Uncle
Sam, whose tenure of office will be more
or less uncertain after March 4, next, to
knov that throughout the country after
June 1, next, there will be more money in
the job of mail carrier. This is by rea
son of an act of congress under date of
January, 1887, and the existing laws
which provide for three classes of carriers
in cities of more thin 75,000 population,
with salaries respectively of $1,000, $00
and $600, and fir two classes of carriers
in cities less than 75.000 population, with
salaries respectively of $860 and $600.
The bill which the committee recommends
provides that June 1. 1893, the pay of
carriers in all cities where free delivery
has been or may be established shall be,
for the first year $600. for the pecond
year $800, for the third year $1,000 and
for the fourth year and thereafter,$l, 200.

water before the arrival of the depart
ment, though the customary good time
