THE ARGUS, TUESDAY. MAY 15, 1894.
EIGHT TO SIX.
The Way the Council Went Last
IS CLEARLY A PUTT ISSUE.
Tna KapnMlcaa Element ta the Cnaacll
Staad by the Determination Mat to Tote
for Amy Appointments the Mayor May
Make-Kawards Walsh the Saccessfol
Bidder on Seventeenth Street.
The republican aldermen succeeded
in blocking progress in the city coun
cil again last evening, and that the
controlling influence ia determined to
stand as a unit in opposition to any
move the major may make, was
clearly shown when one of the alder
men cast his Tote against his own
kin in order to fulfill his obligations
to his confederates.
After the mayor had announced
his standing committees, which ap
pear in full in the oflicial record, the
resignation of Charles U. Win-clan as
overseer of the poor was read by
Mayor Medill, and the name of J.
Henry Lidders was proposed to fill
the vacancy, but tho republicans re
jected the nomination. Mr. Lidders
has a cousin in the republican ranks
of the city council, but that did not
contribute to his confirmation.
And Still They Come.
Max Kautz. nominated for patrol
man, was another victim of the re
publican malice, as were also Dennis
McCarthy and George Hannah.
Last evening was surely one of pe
titions, and among them was one
signed by 273 people between Twenty-eighth
and Forty-sixth streets for
one extra night patrolman. This is
a protection very much needed, and
the other vacancies in the force
should likewise be tilled in the inter
ests of the public, but the majority
of the council turned a deaf ear to
the etitioners, and no appointments
The mayor, as chairman of the
committee to whom was referred the
bids for the paving of Seventeenth
street, read a report, giving the fig
ures of the bidders on the two lower
sections, viz: from Fourth to Ninth
avenues. Aid. Foss drew up a reso
lution to award the contract to Ed
wards & Walsh for paving the two
sections with brick, by 4x8
inches, at $19,30.78. Aid.' Maucker
asked that the matter be laid over
until the next regular meeting, hold
ing that nineteen-twentieths of the
property holders on the street had
jx-titioned so to do until the question
of the third section, viz: from Ninth
to Eighteenth streets, was settled,
and then to push the whole matter
forward. Aid. Kennedy arose and
made a motion in exactly the same
strain as Aid. Foss1 motion. Aid.
Maucker inquired why the aldermen
from the extreme ends of the citv
were so anxious to pass that resolu
tion, and also that he had been elect
ed by the jieojile of the Fourth ward
and that he was in the council to
represent them, and he always wished
it understood that, in his mind, the
wo pie residing on Seventeenth
street between Fourth and Ninth
avenues deserved as much recogni
tion as those residing south of Ninth
avenue to the city limits. In the
course of his remarks, Mr. Maucker
asserted that Kock Island had suf
fered for years through an obstruc
tionist whose demise was regarded as
a release from bondage, but upon his
decease there were others who
stepped into his shoes. This remark
elicited great applause from those
present in the audience. Aid. Ken
nedy felt called upon to defend the
latter day obstructionists referred to
y Aid. Maucker, but his speech
didn't seem to produce the desired
effect, so up rose the philosopher
from the Seventh, and quoth he: "If
the question of Seventeenth street
from Ninth to Eighteenth avenues
was left to a vote cf the people of
llock Island, three-fourths of them
vote would lie against paving it,"
but that was once where Mr. Foss
spoke without the knowledge of his
subject. Let him make a canvass,
and he will see that, outside of the
few who goaded him and his brother
aldermen to block the improvement,
he will find but few who would
acquiesce with him in his reasoning.
The matter 'of the new hose house
wagons was taken up, and from all
appearances they do not meet with
the approval of all the aldermen, in
asmuch as a committee was ap
IMiinted with power to hire a practi
cal wagon-maker and inspect them
The petition from Twentieth street
liroiiertv hnlilnra as to navin!T south
of Ninth avenue was mysteriously
withdrawn sometime liefore the
council met. The ruling majority
oi the council is determined to
knock out Seventeenth south of
Ninth avenue at all hazards, if it is
iiossible to do it that much is fixed.
but Tub Akgcs does not believe
they will succeed.

the treatment they receive; that the
food furnished is sufficient in quan
tity, and good in quality; that the
recommendations of the last grand
jury in regard to the sanitary condi
tion of the women's and boys' rooms,
have lieen carried out. and we find
them in excellent order.. New grat

as safe as they can be made."

Before Oar People rally Realise It At
Work at WaablnirtoB on the Dessra .
The following has lieen received by
Secretary Day of the Rock Island
Citizens' Improvement association,
from Congressman Post on the pub
lic building matter:
Washington, D. C, May 10
Dear Sir: Orders have been issued
to take up the Rock Island public
building bill immediately. A letter
of inquiry will be prepared at once
and sent to Rock Island, and the
sketch plans prepared. I congratu
late you upon the improved pros
pects. Very truly yours,
P. S. Post.
Inquiring lor Information.
The proper oflicial sources in Rock
Island received some days ago the
notiGcation from the supervising
architect at Washington that his of
fice had taken up the preparation of
the drawings and estimates for the
postoflice building here and solicit
ing information as to needed accom
modations, drainage sewers, connec
tions, etc. The communication was
withheld from the public at the
time, as it was regarded as strictly
official in nature, and should come
from the department when given out
to the public.
It is gratifying to know, however,
that the building has been gradually
forged ahead to its present status,
until it is now in the direct charge of
the supervising architect of the
treasury, who is having the plans
drawn for the structure, and it will
now lie but a short time before the
design is completed and the work of
construction entered upon. During
the summer the contract will be let
and by next fall at the outside it is
presumed that operations will have
begun, and the foundation will prob
ably be in before frost comes.
The Wise Coarse.
The progress made by the building
toward the top of the ladder in the
department at Washington since the
last meeting of the Citizens' Im
provement association demonstrates
fully the wisdom of the association's
course in placing the entire matter
in Hon. Ben T. Cable's hands, in
stead of going to the expense of
sending a local committee to Wash
ington, tho necessity of the latter
policy being now entirely done away
with, as the public building is as far
advanced as it is possible to make it,
and no further delay is likely.
