Then the mora enlightened governments took upon themselves the care of the insane and began to erect asylums for them. As may readily be supposed the hrst efforts in this direction were very crude, and in many cases the build ings erected w re mere prisons and not homes, and as the subject in general was not fully underrtoodand the care of the insane was in most cares left to incompetent and im proper custodians, it followed that many of the early insane asylums. and in fact, some of the more recent ones, became the scene of indiscriba- We horror. But the world pro gressed in this as in other lines Intelligent and humane men and women gave these matters their at tention. KlTorts were made to throw as much daylight and as much sun light as possible, not only into every asylum, but upon its management and its general routine, and with each exposure of cruel methods came more improved wajs rf dealing with these unfortunate people. Uoe of the thiDgs which distin guishes the enlightened governments of this age from the governments of former ages, anl tbat shows the progress of man in civilization and in humanitv is the effort . that is made to care for all of the unfor tunate, who by reason of some phy sical ailment, are incapacitated to caro tor thomselves.

In the work of this new civiliz. tlon the great commonwealth of Illi nois stands at the head. With most lavish hand has she aimed to provide for her unfortunate children. Aside from her great reformatory and penal institutions, and aside from her great educational institutions, she has aimed to provide for tbe care of the blind, she has a great institu tion for tbe care and instruction of the deaf and dumb at Jacksonville home for soldiers1 orphans at Blootu- ington, a borne for old soldiers and sailors at Ouincv, a home for feeble minded at Lincoln, a charitable eve and ear infirmary at Chicago, giving tree treatment to tnousands and thousands of poor, and we have al ready four large insane asylums; one at r.lgln witn about twelve hundred patients, another at Jacksonville with about twelve hundred patients one at Anna with about a thousand patients and one at Kankakee witb 2,200 patients, and this year the state is founding two mure asylums for its care oi tne insane, one of which is located at Peoria, and we here lay tbe corner stone today for tbe other. It is a matter of congratulation for every citizen of Illinois tbat in cm ciency and usefulness the charitable institutions of this state are unsur passed upon me globe. There are a few institutions in tbe east and in Kurope which make more display which maintain a great deal more pomp in administration; that is, the officers have more elegant quartcri and live in grander style, but no where is the care and the comfort of patients more earnestly looked after tnan in our state. These institutions are not partisan They are maintained bv all of our people and they should be the pride 01 an 01 our people, tvery citizen of the state has a right to know bow they are administered, and I will sav mat we are making every effort to run the administrative departments 01 tnese institutions upon Durelv business principles and at the same time to bring the institutions up to tbe highest possible scientific stand ard. The aim is to buy all supplies of tbe lowest bidder, to have nobody on the pay roll who is not absolutely needed and to Keep no man on the ray roll for an hour after it is dis covered that he is incompetent And tbe inflexible ruic is to promptly discbarge any employe who is care less in the discbarge of his da ties o is rough or brutal in dealing with patients. Three years ag I instructed the superintendent of each charitable In stitution in the state to investigate the best institutions sinvlar in char asur to his in this country and in Europe and also the results of the late. 1 scientific researches as methods of treatment, etc.. and to compare methods of treatment there witn toose in nis institution and to report the result of su.h invtiga tion together with bis conclusions. Also tbat if anything was found any where which was thought to be o improvement upon wnat was alread hsd. to promptly adopt it. As a r ult mny of the superintendents made most thorough reports of their investigations, as a 1 teal warranted in saying to yon that no country on tbe eath today nas casritab.e insi tutions that surpass those of oar own great stale. lly fellow citizens of northwestern Illinois, you bar waited long far your day. - While this state waa de- eiopmg and rounding institutions ail other sections oi it you beiped bear the burdtn without a murmur. o section of the state contributes more freely of its resources, to tbe support of our institutions than does this section. Nowhere are there to be found a people more intelligent and patriotic than are tbe people of thla section, and no section ia the Union surpassed northwestern Illinois in furnisaing brave men to support tbe ntegtitT of the flag, ion nave long felt that you were entitled to recog nition, that your location and im portance entitled you to a state Insti tution. Tour representatives in the legislature have worked hard for this end and your day has come, and the executive oi tnis state it gives me great pleasure to assist in the ceremonies of laying this corner stone. I feel that I am most fortu nate in having been ' officially con nected with the state at a time when she is founding a number of new insti tutions; for we are founding two new insane asylums, two new normal uni versities, besides erecting a number other most important public buildings in different sections oi the state, what was known as the Au gustine age in Rome was made lus- rous, not by Augustus, who was not treat man, but by tne genius and the works of the great men of that age. 1 feel tbat 1 am iortunate in being officially connected with this state at this time when her great pe pie are planting the landmarks of er civilization oy tne creation oi new institutions. I commit this institution to your watchful care, to vour patriotism and to your high sense of public uty. No matter who the trustees may be from time to time, they will be influenced by your judgment, and ask you to see to it that this msti- ution is made to serve tbe high pur pose for which it was founded. ask vou to see to it for all tbe Tears o come, that it be not used as a con venience by political manipolatois, and that its pay roll be not made to furnUh support for the dependent relatives of prominent citizens ask you to see to it that character. merit and superior qualifications alone snail rule this institution. For ClvUiiatloa mad Homaulry, You have observed that the stvle of architecture adopted is what has been called tiidor-gotnic and has something in common with the fa mous castles found in Europe. I am told, tbat as tbe traveler ascends tbe Rhine and views some noted castles sitnated on a hill top he is regaled with an account of the marauding baron, who lived there centuries agu, and with a small band, of retainers emerged from time toy time to rob and plunder bis weaker neighbors in the centuries which are to come, as the intelligent traveler shall as eend the great 4 'Father qf Waters1' and s;e this magnificent structure com manding a view of the sunounding country, he will exclaim: "Theie stands', monument to the intelli gence the civilization and the hu manity of the people of northwestern Illinois."

Rock Island citizens. They are Col. D. G. Moore and Col. R. H. Aiken, both or Chicago. Both left nere about the same time ust about twenty years ago and neither has been here since. Col.

Kock island is my birth place, whv should I not be glad to get back here? The early history of this city is interwoven with my life. It is the home of my youth and earlv manhood. I was born at Illinois City in 1814,and lived here until 1871 sawmany of the early events which have marked the history of the town. witnessed tbe Gray Kagle disaster at the Rock Island bridge; saw her strike the pier, and the picture that followed will never be erased from my memory. I saw the first train come into Rock Island on the old Western Union road, and many other incidents such as marked the early progress and development of the community. I distinctly recall an ocident in connection with the old court house, now I expect crumbling into ruins. With other boys I had gathered in there and was p aying. when unknown to us tbe sheriff locked us in, and we had a fine time getting out, I can tell you what, but we eventually etcaped. I marvel at the changes that have taken place here in 20 years that have passed, and I expect. I hall see more as I go out to look about.

Aiken was likewise solicitous as to many well known Rock Island families. He said; "We used to livedi reotly opposite the Harper mansion and I grew up with the young folks, at that time some of the city's best knotfn families." Col. Aike'n then asked after manv of Rock Island's people who were known to him then. a number of whom are still here and others, such as the Rodman's and Gleim'f, have moved away. He said be would always have a warm spot for Rock Island as tbe home of his youth, but he could hardly believe that tbe piace could have changed so in 20 years Col. Aiken is inspector general of rifld practice of the state militia as well as a member of the governor's stall and is much interested in Rock Island arsenal, to which he paid a visit mis morning. "Aiken is a crank on rifle practice." remarked Adj. Gen. C. C. Hilton, "1 mean tbat in a complimentary sense, though, and wherever there is a gun yard or a rifle range you will find him it he gets within reach of it."
