1821 SECOND AYE.
WILL STAND BY IT.
Aldermen to Carry the Levee
THAT IS THE PftOSPEd HOW.
Not to tTp Vld the Overthrow of the Fo-
ple'e MlcbMt lotereets The Proper
Coarse of Doty U Pnli to Progressive
M laded Aldermen,
There is every indication that the
ordinance for the improvement ol
the river front will aland that is
that the aldermen will stand bv it
despite the major's opposition, and
wuen tne time comes will repass it
over his head. The city attorney
will be authorized to bring proceed
ings in court, and we will fiom this
ascei tain the actual cost and who is
to pay it. One of the most conserv
ative aldermen in the council taid
yesterday: ! am convinced that
the council will now see this matter
through, aud I shall vote to pass it
over the mayor's veto, as I believe
two-third of the others will for the
purpose of ascertaining the exact
cost and just what we can exact and
expect from the railroads." It is as
good a time to hnd this out now as
any. We have approached to that
very point, and it is not the time to
turn back. For my part, I believe
everyone of them will sustain the
portion assessed without demur, and
I each one does we will very quickly
settle all disputes growing out of the
levee question. Further than this, I
do not believe the cost of .the im.
provement will come within (15,000
of the estimate I think $20,000 will
cover the total cost. But how are
we going to Bud out? By repassing
the ordinance and having the assess
ment made, or by dropping the mat
ter where it is? I am for going
head to that point where we find
we cannot go any further at any
rate and we are a loDg ways from
that point yet."
A Wine Position.
And these were words of wisdom,
acd they did not come from a levee
enthusiast, either. They constitute
the expression of a man who has
moved very cautiously in the entire
proceeding, but who does not believe
in retreatiog at a critical tirus. The
Attnis is satisfied that the two-thirds
of the council which has brought
tne orumance to its present status
will not desert now that the mayor
has thrown a stumbling block in the
way, but will agree with the alder
man quoted, that the city can move
a good ways yet before it is con
fronted with obstacles that it cannot
surmount. The time is at hand now
to try the courage of the aldermen.
They can push ahead if they will.
and if when they reach the point
1 11 at iney can go no tanner, tne pub
lic will judge the situation justly.
What is wantea now is to advance
the proceedings to that point where
t can be ascertained iust what the
First avenue interests ought to pay,
and then will come the opportu
nity to know whether there has been
any misjudging or misconception of
motives or not. w hat the public
has a right to know is the actual
cost ot the improvement and who
ought to pay for it.
J be way to lind out these things is
to repass the ordinance detpite the
efforts of the mayor to the contrary,
and get it into the county court.
And that is wnat Ihk Ak;ls
thinks th aldermen will do at their
next regular meeting.

REV. MORSE GOES AWAY.
Ex-Pastor of tbe Milan Methodist Cbareh
Ietwa for the West.
Rev. S. Morse, late pastor of the
Milan Methodist Episcopal church,
has been missed by the people of tht
little town for the past few weeks,
and now they are just coming to the
conclusion that he has gone for good.
It is not because any wrongdoing
characterized his spiritual or social
affairs that Milan filk are inter
ested in the departure of Rev.
Morse, but because of the unceremo
nious manner iu which he took his
Just before the opening of the dis
trict camp meeting Rev. Morse re
signed the pastorate of the Method
ist church. It seems the relations
between minister and congregation
were not tbe most congenial from
the first. He would not carry
ont the wishes of the congrega
tion in all respects. Then the
breach widened. The congregation
began diminishing ia numbers and
it appeared as though the only salva
tion for the church was the resigna
tion ot the pastor. And so he re
signed. Uev. Morse arrived in Milan with
his young wife and son last fall after
his appointment a pastor. He is a
gentleman of about 60. He has been
married twice. His soon succeeded
Fred Kuschmanu as hired Land at
the Bastian farm. It is thought Rev.
and Mrs. Morse have gone to Cali

WORTHY OF ALL ASSISTANCE.
Something that Rork Island Should Bare
In Connection with lie other Advan
tages for the Care of the Sick and the le
j lred-Maetlag With Success.
The W. C. T. U. ladies are
meeting with encouragement in
their undertaking to provide Rock
Island with an ambulance. While
they have encountered some re
verses and disappointments, tbe
ladies who have consecrated their
efforts to this noble cause feel confi
dent of the success of their under
taking. Their mission Is one ot
mercy and one that appeals to the
hearts of all to whose aid and influ
ence appeal is made. With a hospi
tal such as Kock Island now has for
the care of the alllicted, whether
through physical 111 or accident,
there should be provided a convey
ance for carrying patients to it. or
for that matter wherever it be de
sirable to take them, in advance of
the methods now employed.
ine patrol wagon with the at
tachments which are used is a vast
improvement over the customs of
the past, but when you come to con
sider it, tbe same conveyance which
is supposeu to oe always reaay to re
spond to calls to carry the drunk,
disorderly and those charged with
graver breaches of the code of civil
order to the lockup, is hardly the
one to serve as tbe carriage of the
nnfortunate sufferer not in the
Kock Island of today.
Ambulance Ought to Be Covered.
Indeed the ambulance should be
encouraged. The patrol wagon as
agency of police supervision is in
dispensable and should be kept al
ways on call, and there are times
when emergencies demand its utility
for ambulance purposes, but there
should be provided in Rock Island an
ambulance in tbe strict sense of the
word. Some cities have covered
their patrol wagons, . which serve
the double duty of patrol wagon and
ambulance. This is a humane move,
but it does not meet the end desired,
as whenever the patrol wagon is
called morbid curiosity directs a
crowd and the sufferer for whose
accommodation tue ambulance is
called should be r pared this ordeal
where it is possible. Tbe covered
patrol to be sure serves one advant
age greatly to be desired in this re
spect but it does not meet all the

Mayer Knox and the majority of

General Corner Stone Lajlug Committee

All expenses incident to the laying
ot tbe Western Insane hospital corner
stone last Saturday were liquidated
last evening at the tinal meeting of
the general committee which was
held at the Harper house.
Tbe expenses were several hun
dred dollars, but the amount sub
scribed by the county, municipali
ties and iddividuals was sufficient to
meet all obligations with a little to
spire. The committee was well sat
isfied with the outcome of the event;
the way in which the public gener
ally cooperated both in a financial
and patriotic way. The committee
gave a vote of thanks to the Chica

its accommodations between here
