Is Now Being Held lp In the City Which
Oave Him the Heat She Had, and lie Has
Been Very Condescending So Ir'ar In
Ills Generality to the Community at
As the forerunner to announcement
on the part of Promoter F. P. Blair
of the Bridge and Terminal enterprise,
that he will present an ordinance at
next Monday night's council meeting
showing just what is needed to put
his sytem in order, the Union gives
OTer a column of its issue this moru-
ing to Mr. Blair's use. It is refresh
ing to know that Mr. Blair is to make
known just what is needed further to
put his svstera in order. The council
seems to have labored under much
difliculty and no little misapprehen
sion in the past in giving to Mr.
Blair what he has needed, and right
here let it bo understood that
there is no purpose to prema"
turely prejudice Mr. Blair's future
claims upon the city, notwithstand
ing that the city is accused of treating
him so shamefully. The Akgl's has
no hesitancy in saving, however, that
any further attempt to secure such
extraordinary rights as were asked
Thursday, no matter n what form
they may Ikj presented, should, as
thev doubtless will, be met with the
positive refusal on the part of the
council. Anv proposition that in
volves the giving away of further
privileges upon the river front
to any corporation whatever ought
not to be consiuereu. l he coun
cil has taken the proper ground
and the future will judge it by its
acts of the present moment. If Mr,
Blair can present a reasonable prop
osition that does not involve the cut
ting off of the levee to the uses of
river commerce, that will be another
thing but the moment has come
wheu the council should not act has
tily, and above all should not fall
within any proposition to stay the
progress of work on the levee pending
such decision, as it has a right to take
time to consider. There has been
enough delay on the river front al
ready, thanks largely to Mr. Blair's
kindly interference. He must not re
tard it further.
Not So Badly Treated.
1 o one unfamiliar, with the situa
tion as it actually is in Kock Island,
one would, upon reading the Union,
imagine that -Mr. liiair was the most
systematically abused man who ever
sought the kindly graces and winsome
smiles of a modern city so loyish.
so absolutely chuuisli is the tenor
of the Union's article. There is
talk of the council's taking Mr.
Blair's money for the removal of the
obstructing Peoria round house, and
then working a confidence operation
upon hiin.aiidfinall v that "Mr. Blair's
chief fault was that he was too easily
contented on the outset with verbal
assurances." One would imagine
from these utterances that the coun
cil hail forced Mr. Blair to run his
tracks through the Feoria round
house and had also forced upon him
such other privileges as he enjoys
here. "He was too easily contented
on the outset with verbal assurances."
It Is indeed sad that the affable pro
moter should have permitted himself
to be so good naturedly imposed upon
by the confidence operating city of
If there are any paragraphs in the
Union's article that are intended to
make a deeper impression thau others
they are these two:
The talk of The Aiuii s about Mr.
Blair oposing the levee improvement
is mere rubbish a dust raised ap
parently to divert the public eye from
the hold-up that seems to be going on
for a consideration. It appears to
Ikj all right, in the estimation of this
council, for the Peoria people to be
provided with an extensive coal yard
at the east end of the levee, but for
Mr. Blair to ask a coal yard on the
west end, though it be for the benefit,
of the Burlington railway and Laraont
& Son. and not for the profit of the
interests he represents at all, these
interests being merely anxious to get
a blot-king coal track out of their way
that is esteemed verv wrong in
deed! "Mr. Blair offered to do what he
could to help the new levee along, but
without completed railway or any
rolling stock, he could not well offer
to haul material, as the Burlington
and the Peoria did. He showed his
good will to the city, however, when
the mayor was confronted with a
charge of 40 cents a yard for sand for
the reservoir, by offering to do the
work of pumping with his big sand
boat, at actual cost, estimatHi by the
mayor at 10 cents a yard, and this un
expected competition caud a drop on
the "pur of thoi-e who afterwards se
cured, tb order, to 25 cents a saving
to the"citen the basis of ,00 yards
The complimentary allusion that is !
in the circumstances that have
brought the aldermen into the present
disrepute at the Union office, they. The
Aegcs" believes, have been actuated by
the same high motives. The hostile
attitude of Mr. Blair toward the levee
improvement has been so convinc
ingly shown that the proof of it can
not be brushed aside by any such
bluff as the Union is moveiU to in
dulge in. As far as the relations be
tween the Burlington or the Peoria
and the council are concerned, these
are matters of separate consideration.
The switch which Capt. Laiuont had
put down in 1876 has been there a
good while, and it seems likely to re
main a while longer. With reference
to what Mr. Blair wanted to do for
the levee, but could not. The Akgus
has but to join him in expressions of
keenest regret that he couid not have
done more. For what he has really
done in the way of valuable sugges
tions, such as have saved the city from
being sandbagged on the reservoir,
he has earned a full measure of public
gratitude, which .the city should
hasten to bestow.
But The Anus is not opposing Mr.
Blair, or his enterprise. It is, how
ever, seeking to stand ' between the
terminal company or any other cor
poration and further encroachments
upon the levee. And to The Aikjcs
the city's plain duty seems to be,
instead of permitting more tracks east
of Seventeenth street than are already
there or are authorized, to require all
to le properly graded in conformity
with the propergrade. To require roads
to do their switching away from pre
scribed limits, and finally to re
spect the supremacy of the city and to
recognize the fact that there is a ter
ritory that the city has reserved for
that other commercial ally which was
here tirst the river the approach to
which must not longer be tampered

"Indignant Husband" Is Good.
The Union speaks of the indignant
husband of Mrs. KollofT. janitress at
the public library, finding his way to
the Union otlice as soon as he could
after the "attempted intimidation" of
his wife. "Attempted intimidation"
is good;" indignant husband" is
good, and it is also good to know that
he succeeded in finding his way to the
Union otlice. It is to be regretted,
however, that the Union, with such
a glorious opportunity in its
hands, did not proffer to the
husband, while the spell of "indigna
tion was still upon hiin, the kindly
suggestion that he assume at least
the errand running part of his wife's
duties in the future. Under such
circumstances Mr. Ka'.loff would be
in a better position to receive direct
the compliments that any one might
have to offer him, and there would be
no occasion for misjudging them, and

!The Cold Weather Gives to
Some People Rough Faces,
While to others it will suggest the
wearinsf of a rounh-faced overcoat,
if only just for a change from the
smooth-faced garment which has
been in vogue the last two or three
winter seasons, and is still fashion
able this year; but for the ultra
fashionable few, the "Fashion
Gods" have decreed that their
overcoat shall be made of rough
faced diagonal wool and worsted
Cheviots, and the almost equally
rough faced, but less pliable, though
cold-defying Frieze. The color
ings are mostly gravish, from light
ish Cambridge mixture through
solid shades down to deep Oxford.
A few of the more daring clothes
makers have, however, created some beautiful rough
faced garments in brown effects. Examples of the
finest overcoats which it is possible to produce at any
price are shown bv us, having just come direct from
the tailor shops of the famous clothes makers, the
Stein-Bloch Co , whose label, which they bear, stamps
