Gen. William Crozier, chief of ord
aance of the army, arrived at Rock
Island arsenal last night and is the
5uest of Col. S. E. Blunt, at the com
mandant's quarters. This morning the
cooperative committee of the Tri-City
Press committee arranged for an inter
view on the part of the genera! tri-city
committee on Rock Island arsenal con
Jitions. the hour being set at noon in
the commandant's office. The general
committee embraced the representa
tives of the business organizations of
the three cities together with the Press
club committee, and was comprised as
Rock Island H. E. Casteei. I. S.
White. Frank Mixter. T. J. Mediil. J. K.
Brandenburg, and J. .T. IVelle.
Moline Dr. P. H. Wessel. E. E. Mor
gan. W. A. Meti-e. M. J. McEniry, F. A.
Landee. P. S. McGlynn.
Davenport J. R. Lane. E. P. Adler.
The joint committee, after assemb
ling at the arsenal selected Hon. J. R.
Lane of Davenport as its spokesman.
The committee was cordially received
by Gen. Crozier, and after Mr. Lane
had explained the mission of the com
mittee, reciting the Interest of the com
munity in the arsenal, the effect of the
diminution of the working forces, and
stating that the committee would like
an explanation of the cause of the con
ditions if it could be had. Gen. Crozier
addressed the committee at some
I'lruMrtl to lleoeUr Commit -.
It was a source of delight to him, he
said, to meet the committee, as it was
an unusual privilege in visiting the na
tional arsenals to meet the representa
tives of the business men of the com
munity contiguous to such arsenals.
He was glad to know cf such lively in
terest in this particular arsenal. In
effect Gen. Crozier stated that the grad
ual reduction in the forces at Rock Is
land arsenal was not due to the letting
of contracts to private contractors for
the manufacture of ordnance supplies
such as are ordinarily manufactured in
arsenal plants. As a matter of fact
there had been but one contract let,
and that was for gun carriage manu
facture in excess of what could be
done at an eastern arsenal.
llutlciinK I l "I lirorrtrd Uipl.
Insuad of the work legitimately be
longing to the arsenals being taken
away from the arsenals. Gen. Crozier
explained that the government set out
at the conclusion of the Spanish-American
war to replenish and build up its
reserve supply, with the result that it
had now almost readied the maximum
limit of that reserve in infantry and
cavalry equipment. In this connection
G u. Crozier called attention to the
fact that prior to the Spanish-American
war, the working force at Rock Island
arsenal embraced but 700 men, where
as the present force includes in round
numbers l.cnu men. It had. of course,
been much greater than this as the
exigencies of war. and the require
ments of the department in making up
the reserve supply demanded, but as
the output enabled the government to
approach the limit of what was requir
ed in the way of reserve, the forces
were reduced. It was fortunate for
this arsenal that the small arms plant
had been moved here from the east, as
with the inevitable shaving down of
the working forces as need for the men
diminished there would have been
considerably less men on the rolls here
than has been the case.
