To an inquiry as to who composed
the Davenport & Rock Island Con
struction company, H. C. James, of
St. Paul, replied that he was a direc
tor and that the company was pre
pared to assume the undertaking un
der the conditions outlined. An ex
tended discussion followed, during
which W. C. Wadsworth said that he
believed that everybody in Daven
port wanted to see the" tkw bridge
ouut ana mat tne opportunity was
now offered to secure it. He was
conuuent mac tue oor.us wouia be a
good investment, and that the bridge
would be completed within 13
months after the bonds were sub
scribed for. S. 1". Smith thought
the bridire matter had been settled.
and tbat-Mr. Blair and his backers
were going on to build it. lie hadn't
heard of any dillicuHies that had
been met with, until the meeting
was called. On the street he had
heard statements that the new bridge
was going into the control of the
Rock Island road. - Some explana
tion, he thought, would be tiniclv
Mr. James replied that when the
original oner to Duiia a bruljre was
made a gratuity of $10J,000 had been
asked. That, if granted, would have
been a 8u:i:cicnt guarantee ot the
support of the community. As that
request had been withdrawn, the
new proposition had been framed to
take its place. More light was in
sisted upon by several of the busi
ness men present, and remarks
were made by Mayor Vollmer, ex
Mayor Ficke and others, J. R. Lane
finally olTcring the following, which

Resolved, That it is the senso ?of
this meeting, that bonds to the
amount of $50,030 could be rub
scribed for, provided proper condi
tions could be put in the contract;
and it is not thought a greater
amount oonld be raised.
The resolution was unanimously
passed, but Mr. James was not ready
to state whether it would prove sat
isfactory to his company or not. To
receive the company's answers com
