The Meeting of the Commis
sion at Galesburg.
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

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.

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

but when the men said they were out
of employment and needed some

the close of his suit, the lawyer
dropped the case instantly with the
reply that he only made presents on
