The Cuurraia, When Dou Cahw-roii is retired from the senate cf the United Statt-s on the 4th of March, it will be the first time ia a generation that the senate has been without a Cameron among its members. His father, Simon Cameron, entered the senate in 1845 and was a famous Whig leader ten veara before the Republican parry was born. His son was elected largely through the father's popularity in Pennsylvania. If we leave out tho brief perkxl during the Lincoln admin istration, when Simon Cameron was secretary of war and minister to Russia, and three yours following, when he was in retirement, the period of Cameron occupancy ot a senatorial chair will have lasted for over half a century.

TO REVIVE PROGRESS The Aim of Mayor Medill's - Administration. -- LEVEE AKD CLUFF RESERYCM Two Great Projects to Receive His Early Attention. Street Improvements to be Started Again. Mayor Medill is determined to ful fill his ante-election pledgee la the matter of the revival of publlo Im provements. It will be one of tha first moves of his administration to start again the wheels of progress. It shall be my aim" said the mayor elect this morainr. ,-to again inaugu rate public improvements such as general paving, aad to pat forth every effort snch as will lead to tha development and enjoyment otall our resources." Two objects ia par ticular that will come under Mr. Medill's plans, he said, would be tho levea and the bluff reservoir. Ha said he was disappointed when tha levee undertaking of last summer failed, "it is a project that should be put through," he contiaued,"and it shall nave my most earnest thought. I have always been confident that improvement could be accomplished but just how and what may be tha best methods to pursue will be for the city to determine. I am for finding a way at all areata. As to the reservoir the need of it has beea reallced more and more ia recent years. I think the eouaoil feela as much as I do, the necessity of some step in mat direction." Parka aad Dttaaa. There is every assurance that wth the revival of publto improvements in the eity there will come the estab lishment of the park and drive sys tem nnder consideration by commit tees representative of Rock Island and Hon ue and suburbs last winter, but which at the time gave way to mat ters oi more pressing consideration Mr. Medill is a member of the Rock Island representation on that com mtttee, and Is in full sympathy with me uuaertBKing, ana hence the eity is particularly fortunate in the out look for improvements both wfthin ana without the coming summer.
