It Is high time for the humane
agencies of Uock Island or Daven
port, or both, to take hold of this
) notion, for it is cruelty in one of
us worst forms. The object of the
Mlcihman is not to expedite trallic
between tho two cities. The aim to
accommodate the traveler is not the
part of the hack.man or sleigh driver's
make-up. He is simply driving bis
horse to death in his eagerness to
pet all the dimes he can, and there
should be some concerted plan of
action adopted to put an end to the
An Afdii'S representative who in
vestigated this matter saw one horse
last evening so fatigued that it
nearly fell down when it reached the
Kock Islaud shore after one of the
runs from the Iowa tide, and yet
the driver n soon as be found a pas
senger whipped tho overworked
noirual up and beat him all the way
back to Davenport ajr.iio. Some of
the. sleigh drivers' horses have been
ruined for anything else. As soon
as a sleigh is loaded they start out
on a gallop, notwithstanding their
le's will scarc ely carry them, but
with the characteristic faithfulness
of the erjuino kingdom they will run
until they drop, and their drivers
will give them no rest until they do.
Mop the cruelty on the river.
CURRY THE ARCHITECT.
Chicago Man Selertrd to Draw a I'lao ot
tha Insane Hospital.
Commissioner T. J. Medill re
turned this morning from Chicago,
where with Commissioner V. S. Cale
he engaged Lewis M. Curry to pre
pare plans for tho propoM-'d Western
Insane hospital. The plans are to
be ready in about ten days when
they will be submitted to the gov.

Arcording t- the I'nlon. a paper
that takes the broad-minded view of
tho situation as between Uock Island
and all rival cities is toadying to Dav
f n port's Interests. The Akuis. on
the contrary, considers that it best
represents Kock Island by upholding
and sustaining a liberal, generous
spirit, rather than a narrow-contracted
fence-the-town-in wav of
looking at it. K;ck Island docs not
care a snap for Djvenport or any
ther city. It stands above petty
j -aloiisies n I clanish prejudices,
it believes in the greatest liberties to
its people and all who niav come
among us. It h:is no fears'of any
rival city, and while it has only con-
lenipi nir sucu a discriminating out
rage as was puipetratud by tho Dav
cnHrt council a few days ago, it is
consoled by tho fact that never more
