is what has made the hit at Shields Cash Gro

VERY RESPECTFULLY YOURS,
In the Event of It ProrIn;Too Expensive,
Which geemi Likely, the Plans for the
Shore Building; Where Common Privi
leges Will be Provided W1U be
All indications point to an early
solution of the river front steimboat
accommodation question, through the
efforts and energies of the aldermen
who have been working to that end
for some time. As heretofore stated
in The Argus, the investigation of the
floating wharf as the first initiative
in that direction will be productive
of the desired results, in determining
as to the feasibility of such an enter
prise, and as has been intimated
heretofore, the wharf is likely
to prove impracticable from the stand
point oi expense, croni the ngures
the aldermen, who have looked
into the matter, have obtained from
the Messrs. Kahlke, the foremost
steamboat buiiders on the river,
the wharf, according to the plans
prepared, would cost twice as-much as
a land warehouse, and would require
much more repairs from season to
season afterward. But there has
been a great advantage in ascertain
ing this information as disposing of
this featureof the steamboat question,
fori t will satisfy those who al) along
have favcred the wharfboat idea that
the city has been painstaking and in
whatever course is finally adopted
it will not be without full knowl
edge of all the- various phases of
the situation and of what is best for
all the interests involved. The plans
for a warehouse on the levee, owned
and controlled by the city, and which
will be for the joint use of all boats land
ing here, and which? as previously
alludf d to, were ordered drawn as soon
as the wharfboat proposition gave
promise of being too expensive, are
practically completed, end will be
submitted to the meeting of the coun
cil tonight. These plans contemplate
the tiuest warehouse along the river,
and wilt furnish an evidence that
Rock Island in her stand against
special privileges on the riverfront, was
pursuing the just course, justtoevery
steamboat interest and just to herself,
and her citizens. The contemplated,
building will embrace all the requi
sites of an up-to-date river depot,
passenger and freight accommoda
tions aud conveniences, pilots1 quar
ters and abundant rooiu, not only for
present needs of all steamboats land
ing here, but for any that mav come
for some time to come. It will fur
thermore le so arranged that in the
event of rivalry between lines all in
terests may be separately and dis
tinctly cared for.
Settles Disputed Question.
By this advantage there will be no
excuse or occasion for any but the one
warehouse on the levee, and thus will
be solved the problem which has con
fronted the city and her citizens
since the completion of the new
levee of having absolute assur
ances that there is to be no more than
one building there, and it common to
all.- The business men of the city,
realizjng the advantages in freight
rates of river trallic, are anxious that
any reasonable course should be
adopted such as will protect it with
out disfiguration of a great improve
ment which was pnt in a year ago
with the same high consideration of
the steamboat interests in view.
A handsome mastiff, valued at $ 000,
owned by James Preston, of Daven

Officer Siegfriedt, for being allowed to
run at large and unmuzzled. The
dog had been muzzled until that even
ing, when the muzzle was taken off to
allow him to drink. He broke away
and disappeared, and next morning
was found dead. Air. Preston is
greatly incensed at the action of the
officer. He refused an offer of $ 225
for the dog only last week.
Special Council Meeting;.
A special meeting of the city coun
cil has been called for tonight at 8
o'clock by the majority members, for
the purpose of considering the library

various petitions and resolutions re
garding streets and alleys, sidewalks
and watermain extensions.

Lieut. W. A. Bethel, who has

with the work Hampton has per

would prove a particularly fortunate
assignment for him. Another batch

SYLVAN STEEL MILL IDLE.
Men Demand Adoption of Amalgamated
As briefly stated In The Argus of
last evening, the Sylvan steel mill did
not start up yesterday as the company
had expected'to do when it shut down
last Friday. The mill will remain idle
until the new wage scale is agreed
upon for the next year, the old con
tract having expired July 1.
The men,vdemand that the scale
adopte be that of the Amalga
mated association of Iron aud Su-el
Workers instead of the compromise
scale under which they have been
working. They refuse to return to
work until it is adopted and the mill
Mjnday a committee waitod upon
Supt. C. E. White, presenting the de
maud that the Amalgamated scale be
adopted here as it is in other mills
owned by the Republic Iron and Steel
company. Mr. White told the men
that he would report to the head
officials and would notify the men of
the reply. '
The new scale will affect only the
skilled workingmen. giving a raise of
about 25 per cent in the wages of
heaters, rougher and rollers, in
some cases a reduction is made.
The men demand that the new scale
be adopted not so much for the change
in wages as to bring the Sylvan mill
under the union scale. For this same
reason the company may be reluctant
