UPHOLDS THE ACTION.
A Moline Paper, Strange to Say, Sustains
Ita CoancU la tbe Topographical Map
The Moline R?puMic-o-J"urnal mani
fests a strangely iiofnen iit spirit towards
the tri-city Columbian advertising
projec', much tne Hume as it did iodeed.
toward tbe Twiu-City Columbian enter
prise a year ago, in assuming an unwar
ranted position as to the motives of those
interested in furthering the interests of
the community, and leaning toward tbe
retrogressive class of people rather than
upholding the progressive spirited citi
zens. The A rocs does not believe the
Republican-J ,urnal correctly r presents
tbe spirit of Moline iu tbese matters, and
while it doef no, assume to dictate to i"8
Moline contemporary its position in tbe
premises, it believes it tbe duty of a
newspaper to sustain tbe go-ahead people
of a town who alone buiid it up, rather
than those who are ever retdy to throw
cold water. Wurelv it ia not the last re
ferred to kind of people wbn have made
Moline what it if, ami nothing is gained
by endorsing tbem publicly, to the dis
couragement of tbe wide-awake people
who are doing all they can to push tbe
city to the front.
Aa to the Topographical Map.
Here is what ice Republican-Joatnal
says on the topographical map plan:
The Davenport Timwi accuses the Mo
line city council of "tViding its dtty by
shielding itself with a technicality" be
cause it has been taking a little time to
investigate the legality of the matter if
appropriating several hundred dollars at
the rf quest of a private corpfra-ion of
rich men to make a topographical map
of the three cities But there is another
way of looking at thi matter. It these
same rich men would ngrree to sub
mit to an assessment of their taxable
property at ante anywhere near equal to
tbe sum that tfce p or working people
have la pay, then we have no doubt that
the latter would willingly ga down in their
p ckets and make up a private budget to
tiie amount required, tt is the people
of small means who have te pay tte
lion's share of tbese appropna
lions. Decause It is tbe pea
pie of atna'l means who pay tbe taxes
that tbe Ticb people are constantly de
vising "techr.icalities" to evde. No
matter bow laudible tiie pnrpases of tbee
rich men may be t?tsy bave no right to
demmd tbat tbe city council of Moline,
or of any o'ber ci?y, go it bliod'y at their
dictation in aupropMitiue money pa d
into the treasury by the common people
Tbe topographical map will be a good
thing far the three ciiles. It will be a
very goad thini. too. for those who have
lots and acres for s-ile. We sincerely
hope that no trouble will be txperienced
in raining tbe a. sey, but at tbe same
time tbe Citj council of Moline ia riebt in
investigating the Ugaiity of turning over
any part of tiie revenuea of tbe common
peopVe to be. buDdied by a corporation
composed almost entirely of rich men
acting under the laws of low.
