OUR PROPOSED PARKS
Time That Plans for Their Future
Be Taken Into Con
sideration. THE TWO LAEGEE PEOJECTS
Beauty Spots in Town an In
centive to More Pretentious
The coming; season should witnen
the commencement of a systematic
development of the tracts of land
south of the city to be known a
Longview and Reservoir parks, veste J
in the municipality and set aside for
these purposes. In the matter of
small parks Rock Island is more for
tunate than most cities of much
larger sjze. In fact, the city has at
tained a fine decree of fame through
out the laud for its attraitivenesi in
this .respect. Spencer atii Garnsey
srjusres evidencing, as they do, the
enterprising tendency of the city and
the public spirit and generosity of its
citizens, are beauty spots rarely
equaled, as far as the spice sj de
voted is concerned.
But the city ha: now reached the
plane of importance waere there
should be souisthing larger, some
thing in th4 way of more extensive
and pretentious pleasure grounds,
reached by improve 1 drives and tes
tifying to the skill of the landscape
architect and the ing nuity and sur
passing design of the decorative ur
ti9t. The grounds of these t'wo parks
with their commanding views aud
other natural advantages, should bs
laid out and a comprehensive plan
ami scope determined upon, that there
may be an end to work to.
The proposed parks south of town
are already fairly accessible by paved
thoroughfares, and it will not be long
it is hoped, before these are extended
further, and in addition new lines of
the Tri-City Railway system built
out in thai direction. It is a fact
not to be longer douli-d that
the country skirling the city to the
south has so rapidly developed ard
expanded and built up, that the privi
leges and accommodations of rapid
transit must very soon bu accorded
It is to the interest of tne community,
to the citizens directly affected, to the
business men aad to the street c.ir
company that this matter be tukim up
in the near future, and the city should
have its park plans so far under way
that they may be taken into on-dJer-alion

THE SWITCH BOAED SWITCHED
Rural Service Again Connected
up After an Interrup
tion. The past few days have been fruit
ful of events in the telephone trouble
at Milau. heretofore referred to in
TheArgls The switchboard, which
was the property of C. A. Wangelin,
has been located at Zeitchel's restaur
ant, and Mr. Z dtchel resisted the ef
forts of the owner to take it out.
Thursday Mr. Wangelin secured the
proper writ and with Deputy Sheriff
Andrews and a force of men went
to Milan, took the switchboard out
and installed it in his own rooms
across Main street.
This was the signal for the begic
niag of active operations. Owners of
the Monmouth road line promptly cut
it near Milan and the others grounded
their wires so that io lines were left in
working order except a few private
ones in the village.
Knral Llnea Again Connected.
Yesterday a switch board formerly
used at Sherrard was secured aud in
stalled at Zeitchel's and the rural lines
connected with it. This act disre
garded the original franchise granted
by the city couucil, which prov ides
for but one central ofiice within the
corporate limits, and paves the way
for the whole thing to get into court.
As the matter now stands, the line
owners are in the ascendant. They
claim they have found by experience
that exchaugo with Rock Island and
Moline would be of insignificant value
to them as compared with the local
use of their lines, aud they do not
propose to enter into any entangling
alliances to secure it. The time for
arbitration is evidently past and the
victory will be to "the strongest.
Meanwhile the rural subscribers who
have Bell transmitters are hoeing a
