The Ro'k Island Citizens' Improve
ment association held its regular
monthly meetin; at its rooms in
Mitchell & Lynde's building last
everiinjj. In response to President
Jackson's personal appeal to mem
bers a fjood attendance was present.
The president called attention to the
fact that the meetings had not been
well enough attended lately to war
rant the retention of the rooms at so
high a rental as a month, the
lack of attention and interest of late
being attributed, as he thought, to
the generally prevailing feeling that
the association had fulfilled its
mission. The organization was
formed at a time when improve
ment was necessary to preserve

the contracting of the viaduct and
securing of the public building, all of
which had t heir origin with the as
sociation, having been all successful,
the erroneous opinion had obtained
that the association had no more
work to do. Mr. Jackson thought
this idea should not be sustained,
that the association had not only in
augurated a good work and had been
very successful in assisting in carry

The Question of Koomt.
I he vital quest ion of rooms was
one that should receive the attention
of the association. A diseusfion of
the matter followed in which the
general feeling expressed favored the
retention of permanent rooms, and
finally the matter was reterreu to a
committee composed of Fred Hass,
W. V. Maucker and H. Crainpton.tlie

llemlxT Must I'lty l"p.
The association 'turned its atten
tion to the matter of delinquents in
dues, and after a discussion, a mo
tion by T. J. Medill was adopted that
the secretary be instructed to make
an effort to collect all dues and re
port all delinquents to the next meet
inir f the association.
The status of the Twin-City Col
umbian project was discussed, in
which it was reported that the Hock
Island committee had for the most
part fulfilled its obligation in the
matter of subscriptions to stock and
that the papers were now in Moline,
the pleasure of the committee from
that city being now awaited.
In order to have some linal disposi
tion of the matter, a motion by al
ter Johnson was adopted, calling up
on the Hock Island committee to
make a report at the next meeting
The public building matter came
up, anil it licing apparent mat no
steps were being taken just now to
push it to completion, a motion by
Fred Hass was adopted instructing
the chair to appoint a committee of
three to correspond with the treasury
department with reference to it.
Io Away IVith the Horse Cars.
The association alo discussed the
continuance of horse ears on the
bridge line, and the opinion was free
ly expressed that electricity should
supplant animal power on this branch
of the railway system, as on all oth
ers. The president was upon motion
authorized to appoint a committee of
three to look into the matter.
V. B. Ferguson of the committee
on manufactures, made an eneourag-jn"-
report on the industry known as
the Mulford Steam Boiler company,
to be removed to Rock Island. M.
M. Sturgeon was admitted to mem
bership in the association, and a com
mittee composed of It. Crampton, M.
M. Sturgeon and Will K. Johnson
was appointed on revision of the by
laws, and the association adjourned.
Give Yourself No Concern. Brother.
It is understood that Mr. Medill
has made certain pledges in the in
terest of law- and order, and it now
remains to be seen whether he will
enforce them. The Rock Islander
will await the result with a good
deal of curiosity. Rock Islander.
It is doubtless this understanding
on the Rock Islander's part that led
the publisher to oppose Mr. Medill's
candidacy so energetically, both edi
torially and personally. However, he
need give himself no concern as to
Mr. Medill's pledges, the only one
that he will be bound by when ho as
sumes the mayor's chair, leing to do
his duty. The pledges both ways
were, happily for him, all made by
the other fellow.

The Source of It.
Rock Islaxi, April 7, 1893. Edi
tor of the Alters: Please be kind
enough to inform a number of read
ers of the Akgi s what grounds there
are for the stories that are being cir
culated in regard to a miscount of
votes at the Second ward precinct.
In answer to the above it ma- "je
said that there is in fact no grounds
whatever for such rumors. The fact
alone that the ballots are sealed up
and can not be touched by anyone
after the count is finished should
be sufficient to contradict any
statement of the finding of
an error since, as that
could only be found in an official
canvass in the event of a contest.
One of the election board in that
ward who prides himself on his
clerical ability is largely responsible
for the wild rumors which are
groundless and without any founda
tion whatever. He is in fact a new
comer to the city and to say the
least has something yet to learn

Quick Time In Engine Houses.
Engine horses which are expected to rush
from their stalls at an alarm of fire differ as
much in their capability for learning that
duty as schoolboys at their tasks. Half a
minute is the maximum time for compa
nies in a first class department to make
ready and leave the house, and the ordi
nary time is 15 or 20 seconds. At a night
alarm the vomd slide down on poles from
the loft, the horses scramble to their feet,
the doors in front of them fly open and out
they rush. Bach horse goes to his proper
place, and the driver from his seat lets
qpwqthe harness. Two or three men stand
ing at the pole snap the collar together,
fasten the reins to the bit and off they go.
