Provision! Sought by the Davenport
Bock Island Company and the Provic
loot of Engineer Paddoek'a Batlmatei
of tha Bl( Sewer Other Subject.
The city council had an exceed
ingly amicable session last evening.
Consequently considerable business
of importance to the community re
ceived intelligent attention.
The first subject of moment was de
veloped in the. submission by V. A.
Blair, president of the Davenport &
Rock Island lirilge and Terminal
company, of an ordinance providing
for the desired approaches at ami
abont the foot of . Sixth street and
the necessary track rights along the
river front as far east as Twentieth
street. The ordinance reads as one
granting right of way and other
privileges to the Davenport & Rock
Island Bridge and Terminal com
pany. Bridge Blgbt Sought.
The proposed ordinance provides
for the construction of approaches
at Sixth street of the bridge abont to
be built, and the use of the Missis
sippi bank on First avenue fur the
running of trains north of all tracks
now laid on First avenue to Twen
tieth street on a single track imme
diately north of and adjoining the
main track of the Rock Island &
Peoria railway from Eleventh street
to a point .50 feet east of Eighteenth
street and one track immediately
north of the contemplated track
from Sixteenth to Eighteenth street,
with necessary turnouts, sidetracks
and switches to connect its own
tracks and those of other companies.
The company agrees that none of
its tracks will be so constructed as
to obstruct the public levees or
streets or future extension thereof.
The ordinance is sought condition
ally that the privileges asked for are
taken advantage of. within three
years from its passage or adoption,
or forfeited, and the compauy agrees
to have its bridge across the river
completed within the same time
specified, and the company further
agrees to make no transfer of the
vested rights under the ordinance
without previous consent of the
council and should such transfer be
otherwise made the rights are for
feited. AnObJectiof Heard.
After City Clerk Huesing had read
the proposed ordinance Cart. Ueonro
Lamont spoke in opposition to. the
. 1 . ..I.' ,
irautv icaiure. e nave out one
block of accessible levee for steam
boat purposes,1' he said, "and if the pe.
tition now sought be granted the re
sult will be the shutting out of
steamboats, which are an "important
factor in our commercial interests.
The council should weigh well
the significance and the effect of
its action on this question before al
lowing the privilege sought."
Aid. Maucker proposed a recess of
five minutes to examine the profile
accompanying the ordinance, and it
was taken, and on reassembling Aid.
Maucker spoke as the application. He
believed it right to sustain any pio
jeet that looked to the upbuilding
of the citv. He felt that the crrnnnri
should be thoroughly gone over be-
iore action was lasen to ino end tnat
the council might act intelligently,
both as regards the interest of the
city and of the corporation seeking
Aid. Dauber spoke in the same
vein, as did Aid. bchreiner, who sug
gested that the aldermen ac
company the representatives of
the company in a personal inspec.
tion of the territory to be traversed.
Mr. Blair was invited tn cwnl- n
to how far the company might be
niici-ieu uy ueierrea action in the
matter. Mr. Blair assured the coun
cil that there Was no disnositinn tn
crowd the matter, but that it was de
cided mat action be taken as ex.
peditionsly as possible, as the com
pany was desirous of getting in its
superstructure tnis tall, or at least
starting with the work. The council
agreed to go over the ground this
afternoon at 3 o'clock.
The mavor submitted an inritntinn
from Mayor George B. Swift, of Chi-
"S"! juin me excursion of the
Chicago southern states excursion
which leaves Chicago Nov. 8. for the
Atlanta exposition in time to partici
pate in the Chicago and Illinois day
festivities Nov. 11 and 12 at the fair.
The petition was on motion of Aid.
Kennedy received and Disced nn ti!
Apropos of this communication, a
similar one having been received by
The A nous, it may be said there is a
movement to form a tri-itr
go by special train to Atlanta in" re
sponse to this invitation.
ThaEaat End Storm Drain.
Aid. Schreiner submitted plans
prepared by Engineer Paddock for
the proposed storm drain, which
provides for a total fall of 40 feet
from Ninth avenue, where the drain
starts at the. juncture of (Twenty
fourth street and extends due north
to the river taking in the Twenty
fourth street sewer, now emptying
into the Fourth avenue sewer. The
dimensions are to be four feet from
Ninth to Fourth avenue, and five
feet from Fourth to the river.
The plan is for a two or 3-ring brick
drain. The council took a 5-minnte
recess to consider the matter, and
on reassembling Aid. Schreiner's
motion that Engineer Paddock com
plete the profile and report the same
with estimated cost at the next meet
ing was adopted. x
The Alley Paving State.
Aid. Kennedy asked for the status
of the alley paving ordinance and
City Attorney Haas reported the con
firmation of the assessment roll in
the county conrt, and all now de
pended upon the question of appeal,
which would be taken to the March
term of the supreme court, if taken.
Mr. Haas took ccasion to assure the
council that there was no necessity
to wait for the ultimate result of the
controversy, that there was nothing
to interfere with the work going for
ward. There was no doubt that
eventually the city would be sus
tained. The proceedings in the
county court were now contingent
on the motion of the objecting property-holders
to set aside the recent
jary verdict in favor of the city. If
this motion was overruled the ob
jectors might appeal, if sustained
another trial would be necessary.
The cily attorney felt confident the
motion wonld bo overruled.
.. There wa3 a disposition to order
the contractor to proceed with the
work, but the council finally decided
to await the action of Judge Adams
on the pending motion, the city at
torney agreeing to bring it up at

STEAL TWO PAIR OF SHOES
Supposed River Men Appropriate Some of
Dolly Bros. Display tiooda.
Early last evening a stranre indi
vidual appeared at Susemihl's pawn,
shop on Second avenue with a new
pair of boots which he was anxious
to dispose of, claiming to have dis
covered after purchasing them that
they were not of sufficient dimension
to afford comfort to his feet. The
pawnbroker gave him 80 cents for
them. An hour afterward another
fellow came with a pair of boots and
furnished a somewhat different story
of how he became possessed of the
goods he wanted to dispose of. He
realized -50 cents from the bootj.
This morning Dolly Bros, discov
ered they were shy a couple of pairs
of boots. They were found in the
second hand store by Chief Etzcl.
The goods were stolen from the side

men, a delegation of whom were seen
loitering about the saloons.

his way this morning.
Lout and Healthy Life.
Mrs. Caroline Gest, mention of
whose demise was chronicled in last
evening's Argus, enjoyed the excep
tional happiness of never expenenc
iug sickness during the 90 Ion? years
of her career until a short time prior
to ner death. Born in Germany, she
emigrated to Rock Island with her
husband and family in 1870, and this
city bad since been her home. Like
his venerable wife, Mr. Gest lived to
a ripe old age, dying in 1893 at .the
age of 86 years." Until two months
ago Mrs. Gest enjoyed her customary
health, being as active as one of a
much younger age. Then her men
tal faculties showed signs of derange
ment and she became helpless. A
week ago dropsy set in and yester
day it cansed her death.
