A GKEAT BENEFIT TO OOIfSUMEBS
Am Additional Well Being Constracteil to
l Vl la Connection With the Pres.
ent One -Will be Finished In A boat Ten
The new inlet pipe being con
structed at an expense to the city of
$11,175 by the Edwards A Walsh Con
struction company, although Rome,
what expensive, will mean more than
the cost to the community, not only
in the furnishing of water to the con
sumers, but in times for lire protec
tion. Heretofore in times of low
water the waterworks capacity has
oeen taxed lurni.snin the desired
consumption, as the pipe now in use
is only 20 inches in diameter about
half the size of the new olc and not
being sunk deep enough to warrant
usage in case tne river should reach
an unusually low stage.
Tho New Improvement.
The new inlet pipe is a 80-inch one,
and according to the waterworks
superintendent will furnish twiee the
amount of the one now in operation.
All the pipe has been laid, with the
exception of 101 feet in the slousrh
channel, and will be completed as
soon as connections are made with
the wells, which is being done today.
A new well 12 feet in diameter is
being built alongside the present
one, ironi wnun the water will be
pumped into the lilter, after which
it will pass into the other well, which
will be always kept full as a reserve,
and thence into the city mains. In
case the lilter is not in working or
der, the g.ites which separate the
two wells are to be thrown open,
thereby letting the water flow by
gravity into both, so that in no way
can the city lie deprived of its water
supply. The two wells will
only be used in this way when such
is the case, as originally the water is
to pass through gravitation into one
The O.d Pipe.
Connection to the new well will
also be made with the old pine
thereby having two gravity Hows
from the river. It will be so ar
ranged that besides being thus con
nected, the old pipe will be operated
by means of a pump, the same as at
present, to be used for flushing the
wells. I he masonry work on the
new basin was commenced todav.
and if no obstruction is met with the
contractors hope to complete the inr
provement in less than 10 days.
DIED AT BLUE ISLAND.
Sid f of Mrs. Frank Haney Ir-
The sad news of the death of Mrs
Frank Huney, sister of Mrs. Al Tim
berlake of this city, has been re
ceived, she having succumbed from
the effects of an abscess, at her home

Remains to lie Brought Here.
Mrs. Tiniberlake is in Blue Island,
and Undertaker Kuox received notice
this morning that she would acconi
pany the remains of her sister to this
city at 5:20 this afternoon.
Mrs. Haney's maiden name was
Miss Fanny Clark, and she was married
to Irank C. Ilaney, an engineer on
tho Kock Island road, in 1884, resid
ing in this city until 1891, when
they moved to Blue Island. She
leaves, besides her distressed hus
band, two children, both girls, aged
8 and 6 years, respectively. She was
born and raised in Rock Island, and
her sudden death will be a shock to
her many acquaintances, as she was
greatly beloved by all who knew her.
The funeral arrangements have not
yet been completed.
Edward T. Smith, who was injured
in the Dimock & Gould explosion in
Moline a week ago last Saturday

A Sanitary Preraatlea Roek Islans) Bhoald

Practical and official inspection of
plumbing is a sanitary precaution
now being taken by many cities, and
the preliminary movement looking
to the same end has been made in
Rock Island. The chief aim of
such a course is to provide against
defective plumbing, so often injuri
ous to public health, and to insure
against slovenly work on the part of
plumbers, it is, therefore, gratify
ing to know -that th best plumbing
establishments and practical plumb
ers are to be found supporting prop
ositions sucn an iook io mc improve,
ment of the general plumbing sys
' Am Illustration.
An illustration of the benefits of a
system of practical inspection was re.
cently developed in this city. A cit
izen residing on Seventh avenue
upon the advice of his physi
cian, had William Kelly, official in.
spector of plumbing at Davenport,
examine the plumbing in his home in
nopes 01 tracing the cause of con
tinued illness in bis family to that
cause. Mr. Kelly found the job an
old one and in a generally bad condi
tion, ventilation was poor, and the
system on the whole such as natur
ally" jeopardized the health of the
people of the house. The plumbing
work concealed behind lath and
plaster and under floors was found to
be generally defective.
The incident served to practically
illustrate the desirability of thor
ough plumbing inspection of all
buildings while in course of con
struction, and hence the desirability
of the creation of the office of plumb
ing inspector and the adoption of or
dinances governing the same.
