An Improvement That Rock Inland is Very
Forti.nate In ronenHliie.
The most important class f im
provements that are being made in
onr cities are park improvements.
The costly improvements that are
made by the wealthy people about
their houses that are only enjoyed bv
them requiro that the municipal au
thorities shculd provide more means
whereby the middle and lower
classes can 1 ave more of the higher
enjoyments of life that they cannot
provide for themselves. To meet
this require nent and satisfy the less
favored cli ssos, parks are estab
lished, and 1 hus the poorest man in
the eommui ity has a liner place ;f
resort than ; he richest can provide.
The city park is not for tlm wealthv
people, but ior those who are not
able to provide these comforts for
themselves. Occasionally a croaker
is heard who complains that our fit v
has spent, ..r is pending, too much
money on o ir public squares. Hap
pily for us, such persons are rare.
The fact is that every dollar spent bv
the city of Kock Island for these im
provements, has already returned to
the people in value more than thev
cost, besides giving the city a repu
tation abroad that'it never en joyed
The city of Chicago has shown tlie
greatest v isdom in this respect,
thousands of strangers throng the
f itv parks every day. Chicago ni.iv
be foolish in some" things, but it is
fast getting to the front with this
class of imj rovement, and it will soon
rival the fa nous city of Paris, which
lias invest. 'd millions in its parks.
The late report of the West Chicago
park commissioners shows that tor
the past yeir they spent on the West
side in park and boulevard improve
For the last 50 vears it has cost
the city of Kock Island about 20,
0'0 on its puldic squares: most of
this has been expended during the
past four years, an average expendi
ture of ab( tit 500 a year.
The peoj le demand ami will have
these I th -ovements. The system of
public squares is a popular one for
tlie squares are so located in cities
that the people can enjoy them with
out spendi lg money to reach them.
If the city of Moline had anticipated
the future her people would not now
be making the effort that they must
to secure a public square.
Krk l.luml 1!l tlpcn i'orlun tte S Far.
Kock Ir'aud has been fortunate,
thanks to the nun who laid out their
additions .vhen laud was cheap, and
who had foresight and public pride
enough to provide for a public square.
While we have the opportunity and
while the land is not incumbered
with improvements the efforts that
the peop'i of the cat 'tul of this
city are m iking for a public Mjuare
in the Columbian tract should be im
mediately recognized and the land
secured. No liner locality for a
handsome public square can be found
than the C ohimbian tract, with the
college at d school house improve
ments. A 1 andsome public square will
materially benefit the east end. The
people of he east end have paid their
full share of the costs of the im
provements that have been made,
and it is now due them that their re
quests in his direction be answered.

MARSH GETS MIXED.
Our Member iet Silver and l?erimnion
During the silver debate in the
house toward the latter part of the
week. Col. li. F. Marsh, of Warsaw,
whom the republicans of this city
boast proudly of helping to boost in
to eongress made a beautiful specta
cle of himself. The Chicago Record's
Washington correspondent tells about
it in the Saturday morning issue:
H. F. Marsh, of Warsaw, III., suc
cessor of Ben T- Cable as representa
tive from the Kock Island district,
made some amusement in the house
of representatives today. When the
house met this morning a wrangle
ensued over the question of time,
Mr. Marsh and Mr. Burrows contend
ing for ."0 minutes each. The re
publican leaders evidently realized
that Mr. Marsh was not in condition
to enter the ring and were evidently
trying to head him off. But Mr.
Bland insisted that Marsh should
have :i0 minutes, which he consumed
in incoherent tatk, which first ex
cited the humor of the house and
afterwards sympathy. When the
gavel fell he said:
'Where I come from I never have
been accustomed to being limited to
time. Thirty minutes is not enough
in which to discuss this great finan
cial question, Mr. Speaker, I would
like to have 10 minutes more."
Mr. Bland is not here and I am
afraid you can't get it." said Mr.
Henderson, of Iowa
Only 10 minutes more, Mr. Chair
man.''' pleaded the Warsaw congress
man. "The gentleman asks for 10 min
utes." said the speaker: "there being
no objection he will proceed."
In the 10 minutes that followed
Mr. Marsh reached the summit of
his ridiculous remarks: '-I believe,
in a coinage." he said, "based as
near upon the relative value of the
coins composing it as we could agree
and then let the country take care of
itself, or. as we say down on th?
Mississippi river, let the longest pole
knoek the persimmon."
Where Am I at?"
The house roared at this climax.
It was becoming apparent it was an
other case of "where am I at?"
Forty minutes had been consumed
and the gavel fell for the second
live minutes more," yelled the
man from Illinois.
'Take three hours." interrupted
Mr. Henderson of Iowa.
Private.! hn Allen, of Mississippi,
and ul ln,rw:i; were gathered around
the Illinois member. Alien was as
suming to listen with great solem
nity. If tin- house will only give me live
minutes more I won't bother you
again for a month."
That's a fair proposition," said Mr.
Henderson, "the house ought to take
you up promptly."
But the members had wearied of
llo' spectacle and object ion was made
to Mr. Marsh consuming more time.
He sat down muttering. "Why don't
you extend your remarks in the lfec
ord?" asked Mr. Henderson. As the
Illinois man had been speaking ex
temporaneously and "through his
hat" the humor of the remarks stirr
ed the house. Tlie Illinois man kept
muttering in a low tone, while Hen
derson of Iowa, slapped him on the
back oneouraginly, saying: "(live
them more in the llecord." The
scene was, cut short by Mr. Compton
of Maryland taking the floor.

OF LITTLE WEIGHT.
Opposition to Pultlic InterentsThatSpeak
The-Davenport Business Men's as
sociation at a meeting held on Mon
day evening adopted resolutions con
demning the scheme of running elec
tric ears across the Hofk Island
bridge. Morning Union. )
The above item would ordinarily
be of little concern to Kock Island;
indeed, its chief importance now at-'
taches to the fact that it is the first
instance, we believe, since the or
ganization of the Davenport Busi
ness Men's association, where the
morning paper, published in Hock
Island, considered any of its acts of
sufficient importance to publish the
mornirg after, although such neg
lect in the past may bedue to the fact
that no one was so kind ami thought
ful before as to inform the I'nion.
But be that as it may. and little as '
is the significance attached to the
resolutions, it is due the people of:
Bock Island, inasmuch as the I'nion '
has enlightened them partially, to
give them the complete version of the
matter, which Thk Aunt s has been
called upon so frequently to do in
view of the morning paper's short
comings, and hence more attention
is given to the proceedings to which
the' I'nion alludes than would other
wise be considered necessary here.
Orivi'ti to IcJ:ierMt inn
The few obstructionists in Daven
port, who oppose, electric cars on the
bridges., packed a meeting of the
Davenport Business Men's associa
tion last evening, and taking advan
tage of the situation, including as it
did the absence of the two members
of the committee on rapid tran
sit who had prepared a dif
ferent report to be present
ed.' railroaded through a minor
ity report opposing electricity, anil
al so rushed lhrough a resolution that
the same be transmitted to Washing
ton without delay The action of
the association was not only dis
courteous in the extreme to its own
committee, whose majority report is
thus ignored, hut is misleading in
its significance, as it was carried by
a vote of 10 to :. whereas there are
2.r)0 members of the association, and
I he majority of whom have voiced
their feelings on the petitions already
The disposition thus manifested ly
the ferry few in the association
shows to what state of desperation
they are driven to thwart the will of
the masses who stand for progress.
So far as representing the influence
of the Davenport Business Men's as
sociation is concerned, the resolu
tion is not worth the paper it is
