Health Commissioner Joseph " De
Silva is wondering where his recom
mendation to the city council for the
assignment of quarters in which to
conduct a systematic test of milk
from the various dairies supplying
the city, which was adopted at the
meeting of the council when it was
presented, has been thrown off. It
seems to have been looked after in
the same unbusinesslike way that has
characterized 'the outgoing council
all through its term of service.
The necessary appliances for mak
ing the I'abcock test have nearly all
been secured and are stored at- the
city hall. The additional apparatus
needed will cost not over $."0.
.Must Have Suitable Quarters.
I lie main tiling need nil now is a
suitable place in which to conduct
the tests. For this purpose a sepa
Tate room is necessary nnd steam
to run a small engine and to thor
oughly scald and cleanse the appa-.
ratus is highly desirable. These facts
were laid before the council by Dr.
DeSilva at n meeting in February.
The council agreed with him. adopt
ed his report and then proceeded to
As to Pnrrhaae of Hulldlnc.
In the discussion of means to give
the. health department room which
followed, some suggested renting the
third floor of tlu Armory buihling
for council meetings nnd making
some radical changes in the arrange
ment of the offices. Then someone
else suggested buying the building
outrirht. Aid. Kennedy offered to in
terview Phil Mitchell, the owner of
the Armory.' and get hi terms for a
sale. At the next meeting of the
council the report on terms was
made and that was also accepted.
That is as far as the matter has pro
gressed' to date.
Hock Island is in a class by itself
among cities of any pretense in the
matter of milk inspection. Dairy
men may put on the market just what
they please and produce it after any
fashion to suit themselves and if they
can get and hold customers they do
business. There is no line of pro
duction uiore liable to abuses than
that followed by ihe dairyman, and
with practically all the needed appa
ratus for inspection supplied t-t seems
a trifle strange that the public is still
LOWER END RESIDENTS
AFTER, BRIDGE COMPANY
The trouble between the residents
of the lower end of the county and
the company which owns the Musca
tine bridge and the Drury 1 till road
has reached a stage where the for
mer are talking of resorting to legal
strategy to "force the city of Mus
catine .to' interfere in their behalf.
The claim is made that the company
is doing business in 1 llinois .under a
charter granted in the state of Iowa
anil that the toll road which forms
the only approach to the bridge has
in reality no status in this state.
The plan of procedure the lower
end residents are threatening to fol
low out is to have the highway com
missioners and ,the board of super
visors declare the road vacated, which
it seems they have the power to do,
and the bridge, and consequently the
city of Muscatine, will be cut off
from connection with the lower end
of the county. It is thought that a
movement in this direction will cause
Muscatine merchants to bestir them
selves atnl see that existing abuses
are at least partly- remedied.
Opens With a Fleht.
This morning before 7 o'clock, while
a crowd was congregated in IJoyd's
store awaiting the opening of the
seat sale for Viola Allen, a bull pup
an. a coach dog that bad got into
tire store came together and opened
hostilities. Instantly there was a
scattering of the crowd. In a shop
time the bulldog had the other hy the
ear and in that condition-ihe two
were thrown out into the street
where bystanders interfered in the
interests of peace.
