Mavor Medill was next introduced. and in behalf of the city of Rock Isl and welcomed the veterans in the following Words: i i 'Uentlemen of the Lnion eterans' Union of North America It is with the greatest pleasure and the most extreme satisfaction that we welcome you to the city of Rock Island. I may safely sav that every citizen of our city joius me in exteudiug to vou a roval welcome. Never before in the history of the city have we enjoyed the honor of entertaining a more representative Dody ot citizens. It is au honor for which we may feel justly proud, aud I can assure vou. gentlemen, that the recollections of your visit will produce in our minds memories that will never be effaced. 'We feel greatly flattered that you have honored us by selecting our city for your annual encampment this year, ana we trust that we may lie able to reciprocate by the entertain ment we will afford. We desire to share with our sister cities of Daven port and Moline the honor of your entertainment. Coming as vou do from every part of the United States and representing as you do the sur vivors of the great civil war, vou comprise one of the most notable assemblages ever held m our country lnle you may in a sense seem to be among strangers, vet I can assure STREET. von. jreniiemen, we are all vour . . friends, The sturdy sons of Illinois and Iowa participated in that great struggle with you, and you will find them always ready to welcome you, and to svmpatize and join with vou in an oi your joys anil sorrows. 1 ou battled in a most noble and worthy cause, lou fourht and bled, and many of your comrades died, that 3,000.000 of human lieinn mifrut be li Iterated . rom bondage, and that our union of states might not be severed. What noble sacrifice must there have been. What great test of loyalty and patriotism was manifested. "That success crowneu your enorts is ap parent irom the tact that the stars and stripes now float over a united and glorious nation and proclaim lib erty tnroughout the world. To you. gentlemen, the people of onr country owe a ileiit of gratitmle that it never can repay. Posterity will always hold you in lovin? remembrance and admiration, and history has and will record vou as having s ul Klued the greatest rebellion ever attempted. The war in which vou fought for the perservation of the union has long since passed, but the principles for which yon contended and so ably maintained, have lieen established in the breast of every true American, se cession has been stamped out and slavery has been abolished America no longer presents a home for such pernicious evils. While the war cost thousands upon thou sanus oi lives, entailed upon many misery in measures untold. while it bathed our people in their own blood and caused the tears of anguish ami sorrow to now from the heart broken mothers and wives of our land. yet there sprang from this notable contest the grandest and most bcniii cient results. Rejoice at Their Own Defeat. Those who fought to disniciubcr tne union now rejoice at their own aeieat. 1-ittle did our people realize when onr country was passim through this baptism of fire, that they were laying the foundation of the greatest united nation upon the face of the earth. Little did they realize that within the short period of one- uuru oi a century, her sons united and fraternized, would lie battlin" for the same principles liberty ami freedom in the furthermost part? of the ii woriu. ' But the dove of peace has perched upon our banners. The principles which you fought for have been gained: the country is again reunited, and the palmetto and the pine are planted side by side. Together we stand as of yore, and reinforced by the principles of liberty and unity, we carry success to the American arms throughout the world. To you. gentlemen, with your comrades, is due the glory and credit of having produced these results. To you are the people of our country indebted, and von are the ones whom Continued on Fifth Paf - WORK Oil THE LEVEE. Mayor Medill Submits a Plan to the City Council Last Night. THE IMPROVEMENT TO BEGIN SOON. Cost Will be Eirrediogly Reasonable When Compared With Flft-area Previ ously Famished -Hpeclal Issue of Bonds For the I'ayment of th Balance of the Reservoir Debt. Before the month of Deeeuiiier will have run its race the loug-desired im provement of Rock Island's river front will be a reality if the pace in augurated at last night's meetiuv of the city council is carried ou. There i not an'apparent shadow of a doubt but that it will, as Mayor Medill and the aldermen are anxious that the work should be done as soon as practicable. feeling that thev have the approval ami cooperation ot every public spirited citizen in the matter. Alter disposing f routine business. unfinished at the regular monthly session, the council resolved itself in to a committee of the whole, last night, with Aid. H. L. Wheelan in the chair, and discussed two imtxirt ant ipiestious the levee improvement and tne reservoir debt. Mavor Me dill. who deserves no little credit for the time aud study he has devoted to these matters, submitted plans cov ering each, which met the unani mous acquiescence of the counciliuen. He said he had received valuable as-1 sistance in outlining the river front improvement from Mayor (Jeorge ISaker, of Havenport. Only a roii-Mi estimate had Ihimi made. It was for brick paving of Seventeenth ami Eighteenth streets to the water's ede. the intervening space and east to rhe Nineteenth street line, to lie macadam ied. the hore to lie riprcpiiod instead f walled with stone, to a heighlli so as to insure a 12-inch grade. The mavor said they estimated the cost al f'.i.lMH) au amount exceedingly low wh-n compared with the figures heretofore furnished the city. An appropria tion of $5,000 had alreaily lieen made for the work, he said. $1000 had been received from the Peoria road, niakin" $7,000. and if the other corpor ations which had promised to conn-mute kept their word the citv would have plenty of money to cany on the improvement, the lifst section of which Seventeenth to Nineteenth streets ought to lie completed this fall, by the latter part of September, anvwav. In relation to the balance of the reservoir debt. Mayor Medill sug gested the issuance of $30,000 worth of bonds against the waterworks fund, to extend over a period of six years. $5,000 to lie paid annually. In this way the improvement would pay for itself. the income in water rents Iwiug amply sufficient to also pay $5,(mkj yearly toward the pay ment of the reservoir grounds, after setting aside enough for the main tenance and operation of the plant, and having a few thousand dollars for extensions beside. The bond question was referred to the mavor anil finance committee to report an ordinance providing for the issue as suggested, while the levee improve ment was referred to the mayor and street and alley committee to report at the next meeting, when it is ex iiected to have a detailed plan in readiness, so that the work can lie proceeded with. More Contracts lt. Contracts for additional reservoir materials and work were let to the Ohio Tipe company, the Addystcn Pipe company, C. J. Lai kin and the Davis company. Aid. Surmaii complained that the Peoria road was occupying Third and Fourth streets on First avenue in building an embankment in connec nection with its promised new engine house, and he had a motion put through instructing the clerk to order the company to susiiend these operations until the necessary ier mission is obtained from the city. A report of an analysis of a sample - r . i .' . I . oi me waver irom the experimental natural sand filter made by Prof. Eras t us D. Smith, the famous" bacter iologist, was read by Mavor Medill. Prof. Smith states that the water was practically sterilized by the method used entirely mire and clear. ' This demonstrates." said the mavor. "we have made no mistake in the system of water filtration we nave adopted."
