Fifth. Warder's Vat.
George Schneider's name will be
placed on the Fifth ward aldermanic
ticket. This mnch was decided by a
committee as required by law today.
The little man who has represented
the Fifth ward in the council the
pt two years went into extacies of
delight when he heard that his op
portunity to once more ran lor the
aldermanship was not lost, and
rushed np tbe street receiving the
congratulations of his friends. The
question was decided by Mayor
Knox. City Clerk Hueaing and Aid.
C. J. W. bchreiner, tbe latter being
selected at last evening's meeting of
Nearly three hours of wrangling
was the'result of last evening's meet
ing of the Council called to make
some disposition of the matter. The
mayor's gavel had hardly dropped
before Aid. Gall was on his feet with
a motion to have Mr. Keeves1 petition
Tbe other Sixth ward represen
tative was of the opinion that it was
not necessary for the council to take
a hand in the affair and accordingly
substituted Gall's move with a
motion that the council not act. The
Sixth warders finally saw there was
no use in trying to smother the peti
tion so soon. So they withdrew their
Mayor and Clark Disagree.
And then there was quite a little
argument between the gentleman in
the chair and City Clerk Huesiog
over the calling of the meeting.
Mayor Knox held that in his con
sultation with the clerk tbe previous
evening he expressed himself as not
favorable to the meeting. The clerk
replied that the mayor said no such
a thing; that he agreed on calling
Then the alderman got mixed up
again and it looked as though some
hair-polling would attend the
hot arguments made in trying to di
gest the law as applicable to the
question at stake. Aid Fobs was one
of the principal speech-makers. He
got decidedly long-winded and Aid.
Pender finally requested him to
make his motions tirst and then
wind up on a speech. Ten o'clock
had nearly arrived when Aid. Schroe
der suggested that the matter be
taken up according to law. A hat
with slips of paper bearing tbe
names of the aldermen were then
placed in it and James McGarvey
drew Aid. Schreiner, who with the
mayor and city clerk composed the
committee to decide Schneider's fate.
It was the desire of some of the
aldermen that the committee report
immediately, but this was refused
and it was agreed to decide the mat
ter today. '
At one juncture of tbe proceedings
City Clerk Huesing told that Mr.
Keeves had made the statement that
Mayor Knox had endeavored to have
him withdraw from the ticket.
He's a liar!" quickly retorted
Mayor Knox; and all was quiet once
Off for tna Eaiarald Isle.
Among the passengers departing
over the Bock Island road yesterday
for the east were Edward Burrill and
Miss Elizabeth Burrill. Their desti.
nation is Dublin, Ireland, where they
remain until the May day arrives and
then return to America. This is Mr.
Burrill's second visit to the Emerald
isle. He is the old Rock Islander
who for so many years ran a grocery
store at 430 rourth street. Mr.
Burrill has been exceedingly anxious
to keep his destination on this oceas
ion a secret and many are inclined to
believe there will be "a marriage ere
he lands in Rock Island again.

The steamer Duke towed the Helen
Schulenbnrg and barge to Davonport
Friday. Some trouble was experi
enced in getting the Schulenbnrg out
of the canal, as the wind was blowing
a gale and swung her against the
banks several times. She is to be
used in the coal trade this summer,
her part of the work being to haul
the coal from Lock 37 to Davenport.
The Duke is to haul the coal from
the Moline bridge to tbe lock and
the Belcher will take care of the tow
ing above the Moline bridge. A
gang of men are now at work own
ing up the old Com stock mine and as
soon as all is in readiness work will
commence. This will probably
bring coal down to a lower price.

of the new court honse red sandstone I
was the favorite material in Rock
Island. Nine oat of every ten peo
ple in this city wanted that adopted,
and although it would necessarily
have been somewhat more expensive,
they considered the difference well
sptnt. Notwithstanding the fact
that U was sought to induce the
board to give red atone at least eon

for material was le. nothing hut

At first the ruling element was for

cepted With this end in vianr. tint n
change eame over tbe guiding spirit
and later the thing was turned to
Bedford stone and it went. The
explanation the supervisors gave was
simply that of economy. They
liked red stone, t hey said, but as one
wise spokesman lor me oiners saw.
"the difference in cost was too much
when the ooly end to be served was
Rock Island's vanitv." Thean anma
supervisors are now trying to ex
plain how they threw out the lowest
bid from this city on 'furniture and
paiu more lor "monne vanity. " But

mittee last evening concluded the
illegal contract with the Moline Fur

, The contrast in the enlnr nf lh
adonted stone na betwnnn that whinh
has been exposed to the winter, and
the new put in this spring has been
a source of frequent comment on tbe
part of the people in Rock Island
who are now more convinced than
ever that tbe red stone was the best.
The material put in last fall has al
ready aosumed a dark appearance,
while the white now beiag need in
dicates the effect of but a few months'
wear. The merits ot the material as
far as durability is concerned, la not
questioned, but as far as it is pleas-
tug iv wn vjv, vuu uuaru most as
suredly was thinking of something
other than "Rock Island's vanity"
when the stone was adopted.
The best way for Rock Island to
find out why it has been so persist
ently ignored is to put new men of
influence on guard. That is what it
proposes to do next Tuesday.
