trustees, who shall be a body politic and
shall supervise the construction of the
building, receiving specifications, advert
tiling for bids, and the like. The trus
tees are invested with the usual powers
in regard to the admission, maintenance,
and discharge of inmates. After the
building is completed the legislature will
have to make the usual appropriation for
its running expenses. There is already
some discussion as to who the commis.
sioners and trustees will be. Tho loca
tion of thesite is also a subject of interest,
and it would be well for Rock Island to
put forth every effort to secure the loca
tion here.
There is little doubt but that one of the
commissioners will be chosen from Rock
Island, and in view of such probabilty, an
informal meeting of representative citi
zens was held at the office of the Missis
sippl Valley Manufacturers' Insurance
company yesterday, for the purpose of
agreeing upon some qualified person to
be recommended to Governor Oglesby
for the appointment of commissioner. W.
B. Ferguson was made chairman, and
J. F. Robinson acted as secretary. A
committe composed of Messrs. J. M. Bu
ford, T. J. Robinson and J. V. Stewart
was appointed to draft a suitable petition
to the end above mentioned. This com
mittee immediately drew up a petition,
but left a blank space for the name

The residents along Nineteenth aad
Twentieth streets in the vicinity of Third
avenue, are securing subscriptions for a
private sewer, and a petition has already
been prepared which will be presented to
the city council at its meeting next Mon
day evening. 'There are two places for
the sewer contemplated; one is that it
commence on Nineteenth street naar
Third avenue, and run south on Nine
teenth street to the alley south of Fifth
avenue, thence through said alley to
Sixth avenue, where, it will be connected
with the sewer ahead v laid. The other
route is to start on Sixth avenue and run
through the alley and down to the rear of
school building No. 4, thence to a sewer
on Eighteenth street. C. II. Stoddard
has already made surveys of both these
routes, but which one will be selected bas

gathered from 17 years of continuous service (having begun our Photo

months either by Sickness or vacation) our long experience enables us to
appreciate the importance of scenic effects in Photo art, hence our operat
