Likely to Receive the Consideration
Thejr IJeeerve Kock llanl Hu Always
In the near future, possibly at to
nights council meeting, F. I Blair, of
the Terminal company, will seek at
the bands of the city certain ad
ditional track privileges which will
enable him to reach the lower end of
Bock Island for the establishment of
switching grounds, etc. It is believed
that when Air. Blair asks such rights
of a reasonable nature he will be met
in the same spirit of friendliness on
the part of the council that has al
ways been accorded him. And. this is
the disposition that should be shown
toward him. Tiik Auous has always
believed in a liberal and friendly alti
tude toward the Terminal company.
but it has felt, and is still convinced,
that the line should be drawn on fur
ther river front encroachment 4.
Meet Him on Reasonable Grounds.
It is hardly to be expected that
there will be any further attempt on
the part of the Terminal company to
gobble tip more of that improved ter
ritory. 1 ersistent as Mr. niair nas
beenT he aoubtless understands by
this time that the river front is forbid
den ground as far as corporations are
concerned. Convinced of this the en
ergetic promoter should find a ready
ear on the part of the city in any
privileges he may seek wnicn are rea
sonable or in no way trespass upon the
premises the taxpayers have already
improved for the benefit of river com

trade, blacksmithing. He came to
tow n and got todrinking. Last night
he wandered down to Kle tenth street,
and went into a house in the neigh
borhood of Ninth avenue, insisting
that he was acquainted with the people

was arrested. Upon learning that he
belonged to the asylum Po ice Magis
