QUESTION 01 WATER AID D&AIS AGE The C, B. Q. Officials ta Behalf of the Knox Coaaty Claim Deliberating at Sprint-Bald A Decision Anticipated Best Moadajr. The Galesburg Repullican-Regis- ter of last evening said: "Xbe trustees of the insane asylum remained over here Sunday and left this morning for Springfield. In the conference here Saturday. Mr. Medill raised tne water and drainage ques tion against Galetbarg. but his views .were earnestly combatted and shown to be erroneous. One of the most earnest of the speakers was Supt. F. C. Kice, who showed that the C. B. & If. 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. Galesburg made a good showing. The commission will probably reach a conclusion some time this week." The manner in which Superinten dent nice 01 the Illinois lines of the C, B & U. has been identilied with the movement in behalf of Gales burg, particularly as shown yester. day. has had a tendency to confirm tne impression prevalent from the discussion of the hospital location rnat the uurlington system is favor. able to the city situated on the main line rather than the one at the head of the Kock Island and St. Louis division. Division Agent uiaca or this city, holds however, tl a: so far as he knows the C, B. & Q. has manifested no preference as to sites. Manifestly Irom a business standpoint the location at Galesburg would be preferable to the Burling' ton to Rick Ulind, 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 this kind. As far 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 that other citizens did, and reserved the tame 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. Rice's disposition in the matter is. "All I know is. Mr. Mack repeated that if the Burlington is taking an fK-ttve part in this matter, it is abso lutely without my knowledge." I nfalr Utaerlmlnatton. If the Burlington is participating in the coutest for the location, as ap pearances have indicated, its course cannot be regarded otherwise than as unfair discrimination against Rock Island. Wbiie this city is perhaps not of the importance to the system that Galesburg is, yet it has proba- oiy oeen as menuiy as Uale uurn 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. aud certainly the C , B. & O has en joyed to the fu lest extent the best degree of friendship that Rock Isl and could extend since coming here. This has been due in large part to tne tact tnat this is an important snipping point, and in large meas ure to the fact that the road has al ways been so courteously repre. sen ted 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 comjaiy or its re sponsible rrpreseititive in the pres ent instance has occasioned consider able surprise, which is, if anything. the more warranted by the fact that the represesentatives of the company at this end have not exer cised the same interest in the matter that has been shown at Galcsbnrg. 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 wa in rcalizatiou of this that The Arics viewed as absurd the idea maintained by certain of the super visors that their act in appropriating 120.000 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 Tns Aitots bad published what they had done. These wise gentlemen, apparently, did not know until then, though, that Tns 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 Gilesburg. even before the super visors had seen the papT that night. The Argus has exerted everv hon orable effort in behalf of Rock'leland county in the strife for the location of thia institution, taking the posi tion that always characterize 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. ArtJ oaraMl mill Monday. The commissioners met at Spring field yesterday and for five hoars were closeted'on the site location sub ject, delegations being present from Galesburg, Monmouth and Moline, thit from the last named city being C. H. Pope, M. J. McEniry ard Dr. Myers, each delegation presenting arguments for its respective locali-t- - The trustees finally adjourned until next Monday when the location is to be hnaily determined upon. AFTER THE ATTORNEYS. Schemer Attempt a New Game on the 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 had a good case against a rail road company. When a lawyer is singled oat as an easy mark for the flim-flam game it is difficult 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 inemseives 10 De. inev said an intimate friend 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 nnd necessitated their amputation. The accident, they continued, was en tirely due to the railroad company. 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 for a c m promise and offered the man $1,500. But they replied nit believing a jury would double the amount many times. The introductory part of the game if such it was sounded all richt. but when the men said they were out of employment and needed some nnaaces to bring their friend here and properly care for him pending- the close of his suit, the lawyer dropped the case instantly with the reply that he only made presents on Christmas day. Most of the lawyers were visited by these men, who evi dently found Rock Island an unsuc cessful field. Chief Etzel has a de scription of the men and is on the look out for them. Fooled the Women. Some forty Rock Island ladies who called at a Davenport hotel vester. day to participate in a grand prize drawing promised them by an agent 01 wnom they purchased a lotion to remove irecicies are no doubt wiser today. There was no prize drawing; neither was the agent about. The agent canvassed Kock Island and ev identlv fared well in disposing of the fieklj remover, for which was charged l per bottle, giving a ticket to a prize drawing as a special inducement and by way of introtuc ing the goods. The' prizes, so it was represented, amounted to no less than 50 cen s and as high as $5 0 so at the most the lotion Would cot but a half dollar. The ladies bit nicelv. and hastened over to Davenport to reap the golden harvest but that wa- where thev reckoned without the host. SAMUEL SAMPLE DEAD.

ACTION WITH REFEREHCE THERETO Health Coauaiailoner Bala's staad Ka- qulrlax Fayatclaaa to Report Manabrano aoa Croup to tu- Department Haatalaed To ProceeJ on Twelfth Street. The council took np a new subiect last nignt, tnat oi sanitation, and im promptu as was its action gave its diagnosis oi the effect of two dread diseases. Membraneous croup and diphtheria are of like significance ac cording to the declaration of the aldermen who made it mandatory i or pnysicians to report tne pre val ance oi euner uisease to tne health department. This important action was taken on the recommendation of Health Commissioner E. M. Sala, who confirmed his personal belief witn tne opinion being advanced by the profession all over the country tiac inese diseases are lite unto one another. The health commissioner stated that Davenport had exercised tne same restrictions where either disease had existed for the past coupie oi years, and considering the iwaiuiuij ui iii 1-piuuuiic in vasion, snch as numerous surround ing cities are at present oppressed witn, ne believed the utmost pre. cautionary measures should be adopted, Ihere are several cases of membraneous croup in Rock Is land now," said the doctor. 'Thev are termed such in name only, when in reality tney are diphtheria in its mild stasre. Both diseases are in mr opinion alike, and the- most promi 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 epidemic1 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 auaran tined and carded the same as dip- inena. To Proceed on Twelfth Street. The proceedings in the Twelf t h street improvement, as they now pend in court, were ordered pushed. This determination was arrived at only after a protracted discussion as to the advisability of attempting the work in the face of has met the city at every turn made relative to the prosecution of the im provement. City Attorney Haas ex plained that if the council found that the jury to which the special assess ment roil must be submitted for conhrmauon in accordance with the late state law, burdened it with an un. reasonable amount of the expense. further proceedings conld he aban. doned at least such was his opinion as based on an intimation made by tun ouicuj3 uuuri in a similar case. Aids. Schroeder and Maucker thought the city should take no cnauces in being compelled to pav for improving the property of other people. Oibers believed in in carrying out the spirit formerly manifested to go n with improve ments. The matter of proceeding was submitted to a vote, which re- suited: Ayes Snrman.-Zeis. Johnson.
