suggestion is a first rate one and

the arsenal where it was originally
manufactured! ami, the Krag-.lorgep-sen
now in use was named after the
originators. The new arm, while not
originating here, will be manufactur
ed mainly at the local arsenal. It
will also be. extensively made at
Springfield, but as that place has giv
en the name to one arm that is now
obsolete it would be manifestly im
proper that the new modern gun
should receive the same name.

at the Rocfe Island Club and discussed
the industrial bureau ami the advisa
bility of employing a permanent sec
retary as is done in Moline and Dav
President Head, Mayor McConoehie
and others spoke, the general senti
ment being that such a step was om
highly aii'visable and that the inter
ests of the tity in this respect were
so wide that the time ft one man
could be very profitably employed in
the work of corresponding with pos
sible industrial and commercial es
tablishments audi sending out pros
pectuses of the city. Such a step was
indorsed! by the meeting. The matter
of getting out a prospectus of the
