The city council comidered the
question of track privileges on tho
river front further Saturday night,
and informally located the two main
tracks of the Bridge 4 Terminal oom
pan?, or tha Rook Island & Eastern
Illinois, from Seventh it;eet eait to
Twentieth in accordance with the
plans of the bloe print preientel bj
that corporation, whioh inelndea the
obliteration of the K. L a P. round
The connoil, on at sembliog, went
into committee of the whole, with
Aid. W. C. Miocker in the chair,
Therenpon Aid. Gall renewed his
motion t f the preceding evening that
the Terminal company's main tracks
oe locaiea ai least lour ieet nortn oi
the Peoria roundhouse. To this
propoiition Aid. Johnson offered a
snbititnte that the bine print sub-
mmea oyine .terminal company be
adopted, at the same time making an
extended epeech in behalf of the new
project. AI1. Concannon made i
plea for the rights of the R L A P.
There were doubts, he eald. as to
who and what interests were bck of
the Terminal company. Mayor
Mcdlll regretted that the council
was tot yet in possession of
the Information it desired in
the matter of cost as it affects the
matter of going through- or around
the Peoria roundhouse. There was
no donbt that for the Terminal com
paty to go aronnd the roundhouse
would necessitate a tremendous fill.
te say nothing of the necessitated
curvature it would make la the msia
tracks of the projected enterprise.
At the same time the counoil should
consider all interests. It should not
act too hastily in a matter of this
kind. The mayor then ealled atten
tion to a diagram provided by Vioe
President H. 8. Cable, of the B. I. a
P., representing how the contem
plated tracks could clear the round
house property at nominal cost.
Here a question arose as to the
scope ei Aid. Johnson s motion.
The mayor held that he considered it
as applying only to the traoks as go
ing through the roundhouse, while
the Impression of the council was
that the Intent of the motion was to
cover all the tracks asked for by the
Terminal company. Aid. Johnson
did not say what he meant, but mod
ificd his motion to apply only to the
rounanouse. a standing vote was
therenpon taken on the pending
motion ana Mayor uedui. Aids. Hot
man, Johnson, Lohre, Winter, Dsn
ber, Rleuer, Wheelan, Kennedy, Nel
son and Soderstrom voted in the af
firmative, and Aids. Conoannon,
fender and Gall in the negative.
Vice President Cable then spoke in
behalf of the diagram presented by
him, and Eogineer Loweth, of the
lerminai company, on the position
of his company. In this oonnectlon
Mayor Medill brought np a matter
of possible confiscation of two Peoria
switch tracks leading to the com
pany'a roundhouse. He had learned
or this through a remark dropped by
air. waoie. ana ii mere was a ques
tion of this kind, the oonnoll would
do well to move cautiously, "for."
said toe mayor, "we may be treading
on dangerous ground." Vice Presi
dent cable was invited to speak on
the subject, and he said that under
ordinance 43 the company was as
signed all ground north of First
avenne between Twelfth and Fif
teenth streets. The ordioance in
question was then read by the city
clerk, and was shown to give the
Peoria tho right o fill and improve
the ahore and river front be
tween Twelfth and Fifteenth and nse
the same or part of the premises
granted nnder certain stipulations.
The opinion of City Attorney Mar.
shall was solicited, and he stated
that the anbject was one on which he
wonld not feel like giving an opinion
until he had given it more thought,
but that he would be pleased to look
Into the matter thoroughly and ren
der an opinion it authorized to do so.
The exhaostive report of ex-Citv At
torney Haas was brought In and dis
cussed. It will be remembered as a
sweeping report as to all track rights
in dispute on the river front, and as
to the onea nnder discussion held
that they were illegal, aa the com
pany hid not complied with the con
ditions of the ordinance, and farther
because the council granting them
was not represented by two-thirds of
the aldermen elected. It was accord
ingly determined to refer the whole
matter to the mayor and city attor
ney to report at tonight's meeting if

An ordinance was submitted by
the Burlington asking for two addi
tional tracks on Second avenue east
of Twentieth street with switches
and approaches across alleys in the
tract owned by it for new depot pur
poses, and it was explained by At
torney C L. Walker that the com.
pany merely aonght now the proper
and necessary track rights it wonld
need in connection with its sew de-

Yes, we will," was the response
of both Division Agent Mack and At
torney Walker, simultaneously.
"Ana yon may so stipulate in the
ordinance, if you please," added Mr.
During the discussion the fact that
another ordinance would involve the
laying of six tracks on Second ave-
nae east of Twentieth street was dis-
cuitd by the aldermen, and such a

a course," suggested Mayor Medill.
"All this must go into an ordinance

THE PATH FOR WHEELMEN
Tho Oae on tho Iowa 8ld Banning to Val
Tbe cycle path from Davenport in
the direction of Lo Claire is still
pushing on. It has reached Valley
City, and from there it will ba ready
for a good start in the spring. Le
Claire will be reached then, certain
ly, and it looks now as though the
path wonld be carried some distanoe
beyond that place, and taken well on
toward Clinton. In 1898 there will
be more force employed on tbe path
than ever before, and more will be
done with it. For one thing, it is
now expected that the gap existing
at Gilberttown will be closed, so
that there will be continuous riding
on the north aide of the road all the
way along. The path was not bnilt
through Gilbert this year because
the money was wanted lor construe
tion on the upper end. Next year
these minor deficiencies will be at
tended to. It is also possible that
then the work of building in the di
rection of Muscatine will be taken
up. Tbe road between Davenport
and isusaio is one oi great beauty
and many attractions, and will be
very popular with the wheelmen
when the path in that direction is

Rook ItUod's Increase In FopnlaUoa In
Aocording to Directory Publisher
Stone, Bock Island has gained 1,149
in population in the past two years.
In 1895 there were 9.603 names in the
Rock Island portion of hie twin-oily
directory, which multiplied by
3, which is accepted by all
directory publishers in computing
population, gives the estimate of
21,607. The directory now in press
shows 10.114 names for 1897, which
multiplied by 21 gives the oity
zz.ioo names, or a gain oi 1,149
The showing, while gratifying, will
not meet the expectations of some,
who believe that Bock Island's
growth in the period referred to is
even greater than this.
