A the Gazette desires to express its own acknowledgements and those Many our people for the Hearty and cordial assistance rendered us by Keokuk and Lee county in our Effort to secure the soldiers Home. Not Only did senator Casey and representatives Craig and Kent do excellent work in the general Assembly but the personal efforts such men As judge Johnston and messes. Clark Irwin Shelley and other citizens Keokuk evince a neighbourly spirit most Gratifying and is appreciated by our people. A the proposition to make a change in the management the water works As submitted to the Council by an agent an Eastern Syndicate is regarded with favor by those who have investigated it. Auditor Mason tells us that the 5 Mill Levy now made for the water fund can be reduced to 3$ if the proposition is accepted and the City will save at least $6,000 every year and know just How much it will be required to pay. The Syndicate proposes to put in a Reservoir and otherwise expend from fifty to seventy five thousand dollars in new improvements and the Extension the Mains should their proposition be accepted. Inasmuch As this is to be a water drinking state and town by the Grace the pro Ibers the citizens Burlington Are deeply interested in the water works and the Gazette suggests that a Public meeting be held and the proposition Given fair and careful consideration. It is one the principal interests the City and its importance will increase with the years. A the following has been sent to the Gazette for publication by one the officers the Relief society a mrs. Jones who attempted suicide North main Street had been several times helped by the Relief society during the Winter and Spring and several weeks ago when leaving the House the visitor the society said to her a if you come to a tight place let me the invitation was Given cordially and by one the most sympathetic visitors in the Relief society one who tries always to do what is kindest and most Friendly to the poor and suffering. After this Date the woman applied again for help and received it from the lady s own Means As the Treasury the society is so Low that she had none Itsjo funds to dispose . As the proceeds the travesty clubs play have been generously offered to the Relief society let All citizens who wish to help the visitors in their attempt to alleviate want Aud distress buy tickets in Advance those who Are canvassing the town contribute in some other Way to the society a commission and Manly his earn right thing.

The half dozen gentlemen who went to Des Moines in the interest Burlington a application for the soldiers Home returned Home this morning. As is Well known they did t bring any soldiers Home with them and probably any explanation they might make might not be satisfactory to those who Are always ready to say a i told you Burlington made an honorable open handed contest for it and had every reason up to the 24tb ballot to expect that the prize if prize it be would fall to us. Why at this juncture a vote More than reasonably assured to us was Given to Dubuque which the next decisive ballot was Given to Marshalltown thus doing Dubuque no Good but cutting off the Opportunity for the friends Dubuque to come to Burlington for their second Choice As they plainly desired the do would serve no Good purpose to discuss now. Burlington never goes about whining complaining and we certainly have no desire to commence now. The commission As a Rule was composed most excellent gentlemen among whom colonel Palmer the first District gained the highest regard his colleagues being deeply interested in the Success the Home wherever it should he located though earnestly favouring Burlington. Gov. Walden Centerville and major Anderson Knoxville Are Well known Here and need no word commendation. Or. Caldwell Tama county was the youngest member the commission and the Only one not an old Soldier but did Honor to himself and to his appointment the by his frankness bearing and by est desire to do the quite naturally he favored Marshalltown Aud yet he had a very Strong leaning to Burlington which would have made us his Quick second Choice which unfortunately for us he never had an Opportunity to show. The Northern part the state was equally Well represented by such men As . Bradley and Sweny with messes. Smith in the Northwest Griswold in the West at Alan Lic and . House a very quiet and a demonstrative gentleman in the East in Jackson county. Or. Swalm. The remaining member lives at Oskaloosa and is also quite Well known a Burlington. These gentlemen after visiting every competing Point came together and following the Well defined provisions the Law finally located it at Marshalltown. There is not so much in the Home itself to make it particularly desirable to secure it. In fact there Are very reasonable grounds for thinking that perhaps the favor is to us rather than to the successful applicant. We certainly have $25.000, our Money left for ourselves for some More beneficial Enterprise what perhaps would be Best All to provide a Beautiful Park say forty acres that should include picnic Point and Biklen Bluff. Or. Starker with his practical skill and knowledge in that direction could make that spot in two years a veritable Paradise. But this is Only a suggestion for thought and consideration if feasible. Whatever disappointment there May be in the matter is mostly account the effect it May have adj similar Enterprise in future even a More local character. The effect a failure to accomplish an object is discouraging always and yet it is proper to say that in this matter the friends Burlington have nothing to regret in their course. They All worked together and harmoniously and a review the action our people in the Light yesterdays work shows that no mistake was made our part and that in ninety nine cases in a Hundred the same course would have resulted in our favor. We have now done with the soldiers Home. It is a veritable Chestnut. Gilmore a band. Shipping freight by Espreu. Owing to the disturbance in Chicago and the condition affairs at the freight houses the c., b.
