Saturday afternoon, Peter Johnson,
of 1137 Thirty-fifth street, was as
sessed $25 and costs for disturbing
the peace. Peter wasn't prepared to
cough up the necessary, and was
sent to jail to serve it out. The oc
casion of Peter's appearance before
the tribunal was his obnoxious ac

cused Peter of being an ugly drunk

laziness she is compelled to labor
for the support of her children while
Peter squanders whatever little
amount he earns in purchasing drink.
A few days ago, she alleges, he came
home loaded, during her absence, and
began turning the bouse insideHout.
When she arrived the furniture was
scattered about the yard. Peter was
reprimanded, but abuse and threats
were given in return. Henae the

Mud was another synonym for
some of Rock Island's streets last
night and this morning. The heavy
rainfall of yesterday afternoon
coupled with the fact that the city is
unprepared to cope wiln such con
ditions as the elements may at any
time combine to inflict, caused the
unpleasantness. Mud, so common
in Kock Island following a
storm in the thought-to bo by
gone days before paved streets were
the orde'm of the day, has become a
common factor in Rock Island again.
A storm with any degree of force
pushes the clay down from the bluffs
like a slimy paste and to it the brick
pavements seem to possess great ad
hesive qualities, and the water as it
rushed along simply spread it on
layer after layer. Twentieth street
from the foot of the hill at Ninth
avenue all the way to Third avenue
was plastered from an inch to four
inches thick, and at Ninth it was
simply impassable last night, so
much so that some residents tele
phoned the inavor to dig them out.
but he was unable to respond until
this morning. Even walks were
covered with the unbecoming sub
stances, and all along .the res
ident portion of the beautifully
boulevardcd thoroughfare there came
today a remonstrance that may take
tho form of a determined appeal to
the cltv authorities that a deaf car
cannot be turned to.
Nineteenth street at the corner of
Sixth avenue was impassable and at
Third avenue there was anothor ac
cumulation that would have clogged
up the sewer catch basin and flooded
Ilartz & Bahnsen company's cellar
again but for bard and persistent
work. Seventeenth, Eighteenth,
Twenty-third and Elm streets were
more or less covered with mud, but
some of the 11 n paved streets, such as
1 wcntv-tiret, 1 wenty-sccond and
Twenty-seventh, were made almost
impassable, and some of the yards
along the avenues nt the foot of
the streets mentioned were nearly
ruined with the inuddv masses
swept into them. J. II. Wilson's
vara on Moline avenue, which has
presented such attractive lawns here
tofore, presented a sorry spectacle
this morning with its new and un
sightly covering of mud and clay,
as Mr. Wilson had just begun to till
his lot to grade.
Complaint May Reaalt In Action.
The complaint which is so general
up town, orcr the condition which
existed today, may result in action
being taken looking to impressing
the city with the duty 01 taking ac
tion atonce. A storm drain is neces
sary. We arc face to face with this
situation, and the council may at well
take it up and dispose of it at once.
Otherwise the city may be brought
to a sense of realization of its re
sponsibility when it is too late to
remedy the evil at less cost.
