square is rapidly nearing completion;
the finishing touches being put on
today. Weighmaster Kimball is
about thc proudest man in town to
day, and is as happy in his new home
as it is possible fbr anyone tob&
The old scale honge has" vanished,
and with it goes one of the eyesores
of Rock Island. For years it has
stood in Market square "and of late
years it has become a nuisance in a
way, for with all the improvements
that have been made still it stood in
the midst as a blot, but it has been
obliterated, and in its stead a neat
little building, an ornament to tb
square has been erected.
The new building covers a space
of ground 1 1 by 22 feet, and just in
side the Roman arches is a room for
the weighmaster 9 by 12 feet and 9
feet high. The pavi'lion, or second
tloor of the building is 10 feet and 8
inches above the pavement and is
open on all sides. The floor is 13
feet wide by 21 feet long and is a
suitable place for public speaking,
band concerts, etc. The extreme
height of the building from the
ground up is 28 feet.
The lire and police alarm box has
leen moved from the pole in the cen
ter 01 uie square to the corner
near Ihomas' drug store, and the
streetcar company will remove the
pole from the square, and the little
i.qeorii stand which has so Ion"
held sway there, is to be removed, as
is also the Jack fountain, as has
been heretofore mentioned in The
The building is of exceedingly neat
and pretty design, and should" make
every progressive citizen in Rock
Island feel, as it does the weighmas
ter, happy. It would be an excellent
idea for the gentleman whose busi
ness house faces the square, and who
uses said square as a storehouse for
his wagons, to be notified that the
proper place for his wagons is in the
alley or in a barn. They are surely
no ornament, and further they block
Ex-Mayor Henry Curse made an
excellent suggestion this morning in
view of the completion of the new
pavilion, and which was to the effect
that a set of Hags of the signal ser
vice be secured by the city and that
the weighmaster could attend to
hoisting them from the Hag staff on
the building. It would be a good
place to display the weather indica
tion signals, all lines of street ears
passing in view of the building, and
it is situated where all people in the
the business neighborhood might
readily seethe signals.
The spaces for the clock dials are
the only features of the building that
are not ornamental. Cntil such
time as the city decides to put a
clock in t he building, either colored

The Comity Supervisor' Idea of PahllsMns;
At this morning's session of the
board of supervisors, the matter of
publication of the official proceedings
for the ensuing year was discussed.

them, as follows: Rock Island Argl'S,
$125; Union, $100; Rock Islander,
$85; Moline Dispatch, $94; Moline
Kcpuuiican-Journal, fi'J.ou. Mipcr
visor Ford, of Moline, made a motion
that the Rock Islander and the Republican-Journal
be awarded the
contract at $79.50.
Supervisor Wilson offered an
amendment that alt, fixe pajers bid
ding bo awarded the contract at $50
each. The board adopted the mo
tion, taking it lor granteil apparent
ly that the papers would tumble
over each other to accept the propo
The low estimate which the board
places on the value -of newspaper
space is ridiculous, and The Ai;;rs
is surprised that so aliurd a motion
should be given serious con
sideration, much less passed. It
is the duty of the county board to
have its proceedings published that
the tax-payers of the county may
know what their supervisors arc do
ing, but official proceedings and all
that the supervisors may take it into
their heads to order into them are
not. of so much value to a paper, that
it can afford to publish them at a
loss, and as far as The Ai:rs is con
cerned it docs not propose to do so.
The suiervisors waste time for
which the tax-payers of the county
are charged each year, trying to do
something wise about the publica
tion of the ollicial proceedings, w hich
if applied to good effect would pay
for the publication at resectable
