TRYING TO KILL IT.
Mayor Knox Leading Opposi
tion to the Levee.
BUI THE APPEOPRIATION STAHDS.
Hirer Front Imptmmtat A gala Til
aenpae After a Ylaroreaa right la the
Face at am Attempt to Cast It
Failure would have overtaken the
much agitated and much desired
river front improvement at the city
rouncil chamber but for the vigorous
tight on the part of a couple of aldtr
men with the interests of the public
at heart and const ijncntl y favorable
to the project. The report of the
committee appointed to devise wars
and means of raising money to con
duct next year's affairs excluded any
reference to the levee. That $2,000
appropriation recently made wi
cast aside. But this occasioned an
objection and once more the question
triumphed in the face of defeat. This
all happened last evening.
While the council was in commit
tee of the whole with Aid. Nelson in
the chair to reconsider the annual
appropriation, there were some
lively discussions. In due time the
river front improvement question
came up. Aid. Tindall said that the
people in the central section of the
city were not in favor of it. If they
wanted this improvement, he far
ther contended, it would seem to him
that the alderman ot the ward 'inter
ested would certainly be called opon
to pjsh the matter. Aid. Maucker,
who has stuck bj the people bravely
in this lirht, replied that he had
been asked by many property
holders alonjf First avenue to push
the improvement. "And it is not
likely that anyone would seek the
support of an alderman on a measure
be had recorded liinuoif as op.
posrd to without regard to the
leeiing of his constituents,'" conclud
ed Aid. Manuker.
Aud Mayor Knox let no opening
pass wherein he could register a
knock against any progressive move
ment in tho levee improvement mat
ter. II actually pleaded with the
aldermen iu a couple of instances, to
let it drop for awhile. While the mayor
has a right t.i an opinion as well
as any other ofliuer, he should not
let his personal feelings get the up
per band of him, as it is very appar
ent is the case on the levee question.
Can lee Once More.
Finally the question as to whether
12,00;) be appropriated for the
levee improvement was put to a vote
which resulted in another victory
n io t.
This much settled. Aid. Pender in
quired if it would not be wie to
tiave a meeting of tne general com
mittee in charge of the First avenue
iiuestious and bring the matter to a
focus. Aid. Maucker paid it was es
timated that it would ccst about
-'5.000 to make the proposed im
provements, j-.acn ol tne railroad
companies the K. I. & P., C, IS. &
Q. and Terminal company had been
counted upon for and appropriation
of $5,000 apiece and the Ferry com
pany fz.ooo, whicu with the city's
appropriation of f 2,000 would make
enough. Then Aid. Pender sug
gested a meeting ol tne general com
mittee for tonight. Mayor Knox
said he was agreeable. lie asked the
nty attorney, who is one of the com
mittee, if he could he in attendance.
"No," he replied with an air of
frankness, "1 have other matters to
attend to which will occupy my time
lor at least; a week." So that s the
way the matter stands now.
The committee also recommended
that the appropriations for water
works construction and the Twenty-
fourth street storm drain be also ex
cluded. City Attorney Haas was
asked with reference to the storm
drain. He replied: "The expense
ei tnis improvement will exceed
119,000. The commissioners have
assessed $15,000 against the city.
A number of people have protested
against the amount assessed on their
property for the improvement and
it is not unlikely that some of them
will carry the matter into the courts.
In this event it is probable that
their assessments will be reduced
and the amount added to the city's
share. I would recommend th'at
no provision be made for this im
provement in the appropriations,
if the storm drain is gone ahead
with the city can declare an emer
gency, which justifies the borrowing
of money, which our present condi
tion will not permit in the absence
of such a circumstance." So these
appropriations were not considered.
Nine hundred dollars was appropri
ated for the straightening of Sev
enth avenue after a lengthy discus
sion. The 12,000 for the ,'evee ap
propriation was made up by cnttiog

don't believe in dealing with men in
the manner which Mr. Buford treated

the affair to the council. To
owe money is not dishonorable. He
told me that if the city did not pay
the money coming to him he would
enjoia it immediately. He actually
insulted me. I am in favor of pay

thing is not dot this year. Pay
him up; we can do business some

was willing to accept part of the
amount and wait for the balance.

Terminal Coirpanj Seek to stand la the
War of th Improvement.
One development at last night's
council meeting was the fact that the
Davenport and Ko?k . Island Bridge
and Terminal company is at least
one potent agency which is seeking
to stand in the way of the prnp3sed
improvement. It has been self evi
dent for some timo that from some
source an attempt was being made
to delay this much desired pro
ject, and while the Terminal company
may not yet be alone in this The
Akuus is not dUpsid,tu attribute
to the other corporations interested
the extreme breach of faith that op
position . wonld involve. The Ter
minal company while feigning to be
in sympathy with the undertaking
even to the point of pretending to
have some resentment that it should
not have been permitted to share in
the expense of the improvement
is nevertheless quietly doing what it
can to work the greatest disaster to
the enterprise endeavoring to delay.
This terminal company, let it be
said, has been received with every
possible consideration of liberality
and public spirit in Hock Island. It
received its ordinances with little
effort on its part, and has been given
every encouragement in the carry
ing out of its project. The Terminal
company should be encouraged, but
it must not attempt any underhanded
methodsof throttling public improve
ments. In a word all appreciate the
Terminal company and desire to see
it succeed, but it must act square.
To apply slang phraseology, "the
city of Rock Island will stand no

"No, no, my good man: we don't
do business that way," replied the
itiior; "yon win nave to make a de

Then the check was produced. It
represented $27 and was endorsed by
Alien, Myers & Co. Mr. Dixon said
he had not the change, but would
