WOULD PROMOTE EFFICIENCY And Remove the Odium or Politic Chief Doe Not Faror. "The sooner Uock Itland and other 'communities of its population adopt civil service in their lire and police de partments the better it -vx ill bp for tho.se cities," remarked Mayor WilHam McConochie today in discussing the movement that has been inaugurated looking to the presentation of a peti tion signed by the requisite icrcenta"ge of the voters here, asking that a pro position be submitted at the forth coming municipal election. "As is known generally, our lire de partment has been virtually .under civil service since its establishment. There are numerous reasons for"' fa voring civil service, and, to my mind, the chief one is that it places thise departments above politics, and al lows a mayor pport unity to attend t; the business of the city instead of Ibtening to the claims of applicants and those wishing their appointment. Personally, it woul.J better have pleas ed me had I not hr.d a single nomina tion of a city employe to iiave made when elected to office last spring. Naturally, one placed in office must first consider his friends those who Vert-instrumental in making victory pos.-sWI"' Finr him. I have consoion tiMs4y ttfettvired ti give the city an efficient and' uniform police force; but have tio hesitancy in statin!? lhat had the men been chosen after an examination before a non-partisan commission doubtless there' would have been improvement. The men composing this bo'ar.l should be men of education and business training; who would consider an applicant pure ly from the standpoint of merit, his polities, above all. not to be weighed." Chief Miller is Opposed. Chief Phil Miller clings to the old idea that "to the victor belongs the spoils." lie is against civil service. and offers in defense of his position men disqualified physically or other wise are retained after the adoption of civil service, the law providing that nil members of a department who have been in the serie for one year prior to change shall be allowed to continue without submitfinj; to the formality of an examination. "If the law said that the whole force should be appointe:! anew," said the chief. "I would be for if. Hut as it reads 1 am atrainst it." The petitions are in circulation in different parts- of the city nnd all called upon should affix their signa tures. Civil service mean. that a man shall stand on his phj'sioal and mental record, not on his accomplishments as a vote-getter. It means a fine body of ollicers and lire laddies who will tend to their knitting and not bother them selves with polities. BRIDGE IS BEING BUILT Ice Facilitate Work of Internrban Compa ny at Campbell Island Work i n the bridge between Water town j.nd Campbell's island, which i. being constructed by the Mississippi Valley Traction company, is progress ing rapidly and more than a dozen piers are now in place. The thick coat of ice over the river makes it con venient for carrying on the work. which Is under the personal super vision of Superintendent Redmond, who is giving his entire attention to the details iri connection with the con struction of the piers. Kverv thing will be in readiness to lay I lie timbers when the ice goes out if the present cold weather continues, and when the camping season opens the track will be .laid to the Island in preparation for the heavy traffic which the company exjiccts.

But it was a crucial moment in at least one life. Rev. .1. G. Lemen was at that time pastor f a large churc-h in Council Bluffs, la. This man. whose heart was large enough to find a place for every unfortunate one, took these children into his own home, where they shared the same loving, tender care that was bestowed uion his own little 'ones. It was not long before lie learned of other children who had l.een left to the cold mercies of a sel fish world. Moved with compassion, he took these also, to his already overcrowded home. Then came the test; money was needed. He had a few thousand dollars which he had saved up for a rainy day. He little knew what the Master had in store for him; but he was obedient, and when the news came that other little helpless ones hai been left alone, fatherless and motherless, with no one to care for them, and the commund came to take these also, to the ordinary man. with his house filled to overflowing and a large congregation looking to him to be fed spiritually, it would have seemed like an impossibility: not so. however, with this man; it was enough for him to know that bis Master approved of it and bid him to do it. Arf he stepped out tiHn his promises and obeyed the command to TWO FERRIES HERE T. J. Robinson to Have Running Mate the Coming Summer. KAHLKE BEOS. THE BUILDEES Sew Craft Will be Stern-Wheeler and Will Cost $2o OOO. ' Two ferries are to be operated here the coming summer, Capt. M. L. Hen derson, acting for the Rock Island Davenport Ferry company, today en tering into a contract with Kahlke Bros, for the construction of a stern wheel steamer to be completed duly 1. She will cost $20,000. will he 110 feet long. 20-foot beam an 1 IK-foot hold. There are to be two boilers, each 18 feet long, with 42-inch shells and 10.6 ineh flues. The engines, nf which there are to be two. will have ! 4-inch pistons, with a 3-foot stroke. The cabin will be forward, and there will be accommodation for six teams between the boiler room and the cabin. When both boats are placed in commission there are to be seven minute trips between the two cities. The T. J. Robinson has been making the round trip in 15 minutes, but it was found it was not able to give as quick service as the public demanded. The new craft will have a speed of 15 knots an hour, will be modern in all respects nnd one of the finest ferries on the Mississippi. It will be electric lighted throughout and every con venience for the comfort of patrons afforded. The name has not yet been chosen. Kobfnaon Made Good as New. The Robinson, repainted, overhauled and looking like new, will emerge from winter quarters as soon as the ice goes out. Capt. Henderson says when the new boat is started Rock Island and Davenport will have a ferry service not surpassed by any cities along the big river.

He who ownt&JLhe-.c.attle upon :i rh.MTi-r.n:! Lil.'.i red upon the Leai'ts of iiis faithful subjects to send of their abundance, that these little, homeless ones might be cired for. Larger quarters became necessary, and they were .secured. Other Chil dren were left homeless, and found under his roof not only shelter from the storm, but a loving, tender fath er, as all at the home delighted to call him; and, more than this in his sainted wife, now deceased, who presided over the he usehold affairs and was continually looking after their welfare. "From a small beginning, 21 years ago, the Christian Home has grown until now about 215 children are cared for there, and 2,000 have been placed in good christian families. The real estate consists of about 25 cottages, and other buildings, all owned by an organization which has been formed through the efforts of Mr. Lemen with a view of making it a permanent or ganization. Mr. and Mrs. Lemen have been blessed with four lovely children three sons anil one daughter. All of them take great delight in the work of the home, and on them, no doubt, the mantle of their father and mother will fall. The oldest son is giving his en tire time to this work also. "The scrupulous neatness and order that pervades the entire institution, the loving salutation of 'Hello, papa!' that rings out from every quarter as he passes about the grounds, and the remarkable executive ability he dis plays in all the management of the affairs of the home, 'are sufficient to impress every visitor that it is no or dinary man who has been called to this great and noble work. Childrer. are taken here from any part of the globe, and have the best possible are and training. You. my readers, whoever yon may be. may have a part in this granil work. It is a labor rf love in behalf of all homeless, suf fering children everywhere. The children are frequently adopted bv christian people, but are never allow ed to go from the home excepting in to christian families who are properly vouched for. The Christian Home i non-sectarian, but is heartily indorsed and supported by all denominations. It takes children from every state, and is not a local affair, but belongs to the world. "We have given this brief descrip tion of the 'Christian Home" with the hope that all who read it will become interested in its welfare. If you have money which the Master desires you to u-e for such purposes, send it 1 this home. There is no institution th;it is more worthy of your gift than this." Mrs. C. II. Jennings.
