The Meeting of the Commis- sion at Galesburg. QUESTION OF WATER AND DRAINAGE The C, B. Q. onelals ta Behalf of the Km Coaaty Claim Deliberating; at Hiring-field A DerUiua Anticipated Seat Monday. The Galesburg Republican-Register of last evening said: The trustees of the insane asylum remained over here Sunday and left this morning for Springfield. In the conference here Saturday. Mr. Medill raised the water and drainage ques tion against Galetbarg. but his views ..were earnestly corobatted and shown to be erroneous. One of the most earnest of the speakers was Supt. F. C. Rice, who showed that the C, B. & Q. uses a very large amount of water at this place and is able to supply it. It was shown that the drainage of the Anthony site is as nearly perfect as drainage could be. Hales burg made a good showing. The commission will probably reach a conclusion some time this week." The manner in which Superinten dent Rice of the Illinois lines of the C, It & O,. has been identilied with the movement in behalf of Gales burg, particularly as shown yester day, has had a tendency to confirm the impression prevalent from the discussion of the hospital location tnat the Burlington system is. favor. a uie 10 tne city situated on the mam line rather than the one at the head of the Rock Island and St. Louis division. Division Agent aiacic or tnis city, hohfs however. tl a; so far as he knows the C, B. & (j has manifested no preference as to sites. Manifestly from a business standpoint the location at Galesburg wouia De preieraDie to tne Burling ton to Rick Itlind. he unhesitatingly admitted, but he contended that he did not believe his company was making the slightest effort as in favor of either place, as such a course was directly contrary to its policy in an matters 01 mis Kind, as lar as Mr. Rice was concerned Mr. Mack said he miht be acting entirely from personal motives or home pride, as he resided at Galesburg and doubtless felt the same interest in the place mat other citizens did, and reserved the name right to protect and ad vance its interests. However, Mr. Mack felt that it would not be be. coming in him to discuss what Mr. Kice a disposition in the matter is. All l know is." Mr. Mack repeated. that if the Burlington is taking an active part in this matter, it is abso lutely without my knowledge." 1 nflr Incrimination. If the Burl.ngton is participating in the contest for the location, as ap pearances nave indicated, its course cannot be regarded otherwise than as unfair di-criniination against Rock Island. Wbiie this city is perhaps not of the importance to the system that Galesburg is. yet it has proba- Diy Deen as inendiy as Uale:burg would have been had it been provided with the rival commercial facilities that are common to Rock Island, to say nothing of the river advantages, ao'd certainly the C , B. & Q. has en joyed to the fulest extent the best degree of friendship that Rock Isl and could extend since coming here. This has been due in large part to the fact that this is an important shipping point, and in large meas ure to the fact that the road has al ways been so courteously repre sented here, which has been particu larly true since Mr. Mack became elevated to a more important posi tion. in the company's service. All these fact- considered, the apparent attitude of the corajaiy or its re sponsible represeLt ttive in the pres ent instance has occasioned consider able surprise, which is, if anything, the more warranted by the fact that the represesentati'ves of the company at this end have not exer cised the same interest in the matter that has been shown at Galesburg. One thing furthermore is certain, and that is that Galesburg has en joyed from the first a knowledge of every move being made here, and it was in realization of this that The Arc is viewed as absurd the idea maintained by certain of the super visors that their act in appropriating $20,000 for the site could be kept under cover as far as Galesburg was concerned. The day the board took this action a number of the super visors and other county officers came to the office in a dreadful state of mind and were much chagrined be cause The Augis had published what they had done. These wise gentlemen, apparently, did not know until then, though, that Tint Argus would under no circumstances and no matter what the sacrifice in volved, suppress the proceedings re lating to the interests of tax-payers having always contended against star chamber tactics in a 1 such mat teis and beyond this that no precau tion taken by the local press could pre vent what had bee a done going to Galesburg. even before the super visors had seen the paper that night. The Akgi-s has exerted everv hon orable effort in behalf of Rock'lsland county in the strife for the location of this institution, taking the posi tion that always characterizes its course as a champion of local inter ests, and at the same time it has had knowledge of matters that some thought were cleverly concealed from it.

The commissioners met at Snrins'-! field yesterday and for five hours; were ciosetea on tne site location sub ject, delegations be In? nresent from Galesburg, Monmouth and Moline, thit from the last named city being C.

AFTER THE ATTORNEYS. Schemer Attempt New Game oa tha Bairtetera. Several Rock Island attorneys who have been visited by - two strangers during the past few days have ar rived at the conclusion now that an attempt to victimize them was the object of the men, who related that they bad a good case against a rail road company. When a lawyer is singiea out as an easy mark for the mm-tlam game it is dilucult to esti mate the extent of American nerve These two men were fairly well dressed and had the appearance of railroad employes and such they rep resented luemseives to De. Thev said an intimate frieod of theirs while connected with the Rock Island road in a neighboring city fell from a hex car down under the wheels, which passed over both hands tnd necessitated their amputation. The accident, they continued, was en tirely due to the railroad com pan v. because of a rung on the car ladder being loose and giving way when caught hold of. In fact the com pany so far anticipated a damage suit as to make overtures lorsom promise and offered the man $1,500. But they replied nit believing a jury would double the amount manv times. The introductory part of the game it sucn it was sounded all ricrht. but when the men said they were out of employment and needed some u nances to bring their friend here and properly care for him pending- the close of his suit, the lawyer dropped the case instantly with the repiy mat be oniv made presents on Christmas day. Most of the lawyers were visited by these men, who evi dently found Rock Island an unsuc cessful held. Chief Etzel has a de scription of the men and is on the look out for them. rooted tha Women. Some forty Rock Island ladies who called at a Davenport hotel yester day to participate in a grand prize drawing promised them by an agent oi wnom mev purcuased a lotion to remove freckles are no doubt wiser today. There was no prize drawing; neither was the agent about. The agent canvassed Rock Island and ev identlv fared well in disposing of the fieiklj remover, for which wax charged 1 per bottle, giving a ticket io a prize drawing as a special inducement ana by way of introluc iug the goods. The' prizes, so it was representee, amounted to no less than 50 cents and as high as $5 0 so at the most the lotion Would cot but a half dollar.

DISCUSS DISEASE. Aldermen Take Up the Sub ject of Contagion. ACTIOS WITH REFERENCE THERETO Health Coaaaaiasloaer Bala's Btmad qalrlax rhTslcmaa to Report Membraao os Croup lo the Department gaatalaed -To ProceoJ oa 1 welftn Street. The council took up a new subieot last night, that of sanitation, and im promptu as was its action gave its aiagnnsis oi tne enect oi two dread diseases. Membraneous croup and diphtheria are of like significance ac cording to the declaration of the aldermen who made it mandatory tor pnysicians to report tne pre val ance of either disease to the health department. This important action was taken on the recommendation of Health Commissioner E. M. Sal a, who confirmed his personal belief with the opinion being advanced by the profession all over the country tin tnese aiseases are iiFe unto one another. The health commissioner stated that Davenport had exercised tne same restrictions where either aisease naa existed for the past co u pie oi years, ana considering the possibility oi an epidemic in vasion, such as numerous surround' ing cities are at present oppressed with, he believed the utmost pre cautionary measures should be auopiea. inere are several cases of membraneous croup in Rock Is land now," said the doctor. -'Thev are termed such in name only, when in reality they are diphtheria in its mud stage. Both diseases are in my opinion alike, and the- most pro mi nent pnysicians declare them aa such. Hence both should be report ed to the health department in order that the city can be properly guarded from the probab.e visitation of the epidemic.'1 An amendment to the city ordinances in accordance with the health commissioner's recommendation was adopted. Hence neighborhoods where membraneous croup exists will hereafter be quaran lined and carded the same as dip- lucna.
