TO RAISE REVENUE
Council Finance Committee Fav
ors Increasing the Sa
BUT OTHER ALDERMX2T OPPOSE
Independent Telephone Ordi
nance Read to Council
The finance committee of the city
council, of which Aid. A G Ander
son is chairman, has been holding
frequent conferences in an effort t
csnctive a plan whereby the munici
pal revenues might be increased, ex
penses having grown to such propor
tions that there is never anything on
band with which to meet the cost of
needed improvements. The commit
tee felt that the saloonkeepers cjold
stand $1C increase in their license.
which is now $500 per annum. This
in itself would' amoant to consider
able in a year. Other occupations
in the liquor line were to be
called upon -for a proportionate
increase in their licence fee.
It had about been agreed by the com
mittee to prepare an ordinance pro
viding for the new order of things
when a small s zad storm of opposi
tion was discovered among the 11
aldermen not members of the finance
committee. The majority of them
declared they would never support
such a measure and assured the fath
ers of the measure that if they were
wise politicians they would desist, as
it would be made decidedly unpleasant
for them it tney expected to be can
didates for reelection to their present
positions. The bluff seems to have
been sufficiently strong, for a mem
bar of the committee said before list
night's council meeting: "We have
arrived at the conclusion that it is
useless to try to indece tho council,
as now constituted, to approve a
raise in the saloon license. The
council has been thoroughly can
vassed, but the opposition is almost
unanimous. We nave about given up
the idea of expecting the saloons to
do any more for the city than they
are doing today. And they ought to
pay more, too. However, 1 am yet
hopeful that we can pass an ordinance
levying a license on wholesale liquor
houses, which now do not pay any
thing into the city treasury "
" w Telephone Ordinance Itaatl.
The franchise ordinance of the Illi
nois Independent Telephone company
was read to the council and referred
to a special committee appointed by
the mayor and composed of Aids
Anderson, Gall, White, Westbay and
Eckhart. Aid Kennedy was opposed
to entrusting a proposition of such
import to a few aldermen. He fa
vored every member of the council
being on hand at all meetings at
which the new telephone ordinance
was discussed, in order that all might
be familiar with its merits when ihe
time when it was to be -put upon its
passage arrived. Aid Anderson co
incided with the Sixth ward repre
sentative and it was therefore made
understood by the mayor when he
put the motion for the appointment
of the special committee that all
i aldermen should have the privilege
of attending meetings of the com
mittee, which is expected to make its
report at the cext meeting of the
Some months ago Aid. Eckhart had
a resolution passed ordering the blow
ing of the waterworks whistle at 5
p. 111. for the benefit of the laboring
people. Aid. Andrews said last night
that this was only a partial accom
modation and he accordingly offered
a resolution, which was adopted, pro
viding for the sounding of the whistle
at o a. m. as well as 5 p. m
starting and quitting time.

Opposite the upper end of
the g v

company proposes to build a wing
dam extending out into the stream
from the eastern or Illinois side of
the river. This dam will divert 10 -
UUO cubic feet per second How of
water into a canal to be constructed
along the eist side of the gge The
canal will ba live miles long and will
conduct the water with only 2 6 feet
feet fall to a basin three quarters of
mile long and one-nuanar of a mile
At the lower end of this basin will
be a group of power houses with tur
bine water wheels and electric teaer
ators. On the river side the plans
provide for a bear-trap da u similar
to the one in ue at the lower end of
the Chicago sanitary ctn&l. to be 1U0
feet long and to have a vertical rang
of 16 feet. The baar-trap is iatended
to regulate the pressure on the wheels

surface can ba raised so as to provide

50,000 power counted upon as a con
stant supply despite all variations
Project Approved by Congress.
The wing dam project his already
been authorized b congress; the dam
must ba begun by February. 1902. and
completed within three years there
after. It is believed by the cllicers
that there will be little or no objection
to extending the wingdam across tho
river, since navigation can at all times
be carried on through the government
canal. At the power plant it is in
tended to use groups of turbine water
wheels, each wheel being 43 to 44
Inches in diameter. . For the wing
dam stage of development the power
plant unit will be eight such tur
bines, oouplod on a horizontal shaft
and delivering 1,125 effective horse
power Two of these units will ba
connected with ono 2.000-horse power
generator With the carrying out of
the high level or completed dam pro
ject each unit will develop double its
former efficiency, or 2 250 horse
power, and will be connected with a
jle generator. The power, it is
said, can be transmitted economic
ally 40 to 50 miles, thus -making it
available for Quincy. Burlington,
Fort Madiion and other towns.
