Council Members Clash Over
Sale of Small Piece of
PROCEEDINGS HUNG ON A SNAG
Proposition to Kstablish Industrial
Enterprise Gets a Cool
J'hc odor of brimstone pervaded the
air of the city council chamber last
evening-, the proposal for the Kale of
the little triangular strip of ground
located opposite the X. 1 hose house
n Seventeenth street being1 the in
gredient that produced the sponta
neous combustion. As a result of it
the city solons got crosswise and the.
nest, interests of the city became a
The meeting1 last evening was to the
outsider merely a harmless adjourned
session held for the purpose of revis
ing ordinances, lint the meeting of
tlie finance committee Wednesday ev
ening had set something a-brewing
and when the committee's report on
the consideration of the bids opened
Monday evening for the purchase of
the above tract was presented, results
were not long in manifesting them
The committee reported through
its chairman. Aid. Anderson, recom
mending that the bid of Mrs. Anna
Corcoran of $1,210 for the strip be
accepted over that of J. R. Eckhart
for $00 and of V. C. Maucker for
$550. Aid. Anderson moved that the
report be adopted. Aid. Xlirkel asked
that certain Davenport gentlemen
who were present in the liall he heard.
alluding particularly 1o F. YV. Kmithv
president of the Amazon Pickling
works, who desired to use part of the
building- that Mr. Maucker hail prom
isee! to erect on the property inqms-
lion for a distributing' plant for ihe
product of the factory.
Aid. Kennedy OIJM-ts.
Aid. Kennedy objected on the
ground that what the Davenport par
ties might have to say could have no
bearing on the subject in hand. After
some desultory remarks Ihe question
was put to an aye and nay vote, eight
voting in favor of the acceptance of
the bid of Mrs. Corcoran and four
against, those opposing being Aids.
Mochlingcr. Naab, Uirkel and (iall,
and Aids. While and McCaskrin being
absent. The mayor ruled that the
motion was lost, the necessary
vote of all the aldermen' required to
sanction the sale of city property be-
Aid. Kennedy then moved that Ihe
certified checks of the two lowest
bidders be returned to them, the ald
erman slating that the property had
been sold to the highest bidder by
the action of the council and the
committee and that it only remained
to mandamus the city to enforce the
giving of a deed. Aid. ISirkel moved
to amend by returning all the certi
fied checks. The amendment was lost
7 to 5. The original motion was then
put and carried. S to 4. the vote being
identical with the first one taken.
Things had now reached a pass that
necessitated some lighl on the legal
aspects of the case from the city at
torney, and then the advice of Mayor
Knox was accepted and the entire
matter was allowed to rest till called
up at a future meeting.
Politic a Consideration.
Mr. Maucker was given an oppor
tunity to be heard after the thing
was virtually settled, and in a review
of the case he brought the charge
that polities had more to do with the
action of the republican members
at the time the original bids were
submitted when his was the lowest
than a desire to further the best in
terests of the city. Aids. Kennedy
and Eckhart took exception to some
of the points and there were some
heated passes in which Aid. Hirkel
stood up as a witness to the veracity
of Mr. Maucker. Mayor Knox's gavel
leat a tattoo on his desk the greater
part of the time, the while he told the
sjeakers to go on, he admonished
them not to be too personal.
Finally . the wordy session cooled
somewhat and Mr. Smith, of Daven
port, was heard, lie told of the grow
ing business of his company on this
side of the river and of the desiiv en
tertained of establishing a branch
factory here, preferably at. some
point near the piece of property in
question, which the firm rented last
year, to use as a point at which Hie
farmers raising pickles could deliver
them. He stated that he had already
the promise of 80 acres of pickles this
year on this side of the river and that
when 150 acres were secured a branch
factory would be established here,
provided that an offer from Fulton is
not accepted. .Mr." Smith acknowledg
ed that he had arranged with Mr.
Maucker to cooperate in the erection
of a building in the event that the
city sold the latter the piece of prop
erty in question. In concluding1 lie
stated that he would give the city as
annual rental for the tract 6 per cent
of Ihe amount offered by the highest
bidder-for two years, with a privilege
of five, the purpose being' to erect a
building suitable to the needs of the
company and in which, if a branch
factory were established, some fifty
or more hands would be employed
during the busy reason of the year.
Would Foot Co Nice 8nm -
During his talk Mr. Smith was fre
quently interrupted by Mr. Kennedy,
but preserved his equanimity to the
end. No consideration was accorded
his offer to rent the lot, although the
amount he was willing- to pay would
in five years foot np a very nice sum.
The strip of ground in controversy.
as is generally known, lies adjoining
the property of W. C. Maucker. It is
19 feet in width on the north end and
tapers to a point at the south end.
Mr. Maucker promised to erect upon
it and his own lot a substantial brick
building provided he was the success
ful oidder. The other bidders make no
promises of improvements in the projv
erty. The sale of the property is
a matter that is attracting consider
able interest, not so much on account
of the value involved as the promi
nence of the property. The location
is too open to public view to render
its sale advisable in view of the tnall
amount it will bring unless there is
some assurance of Hie nature of im
provement that will be made upon it.
It had better be kept, cleared and
sown to gTass than to allow it to he

Col. Henry Curtis was before the
council in his capacity as agent of
the Weyerhaeuser syndicate that nold
the city the trac of land upon which
the reservoir is located, asking that
certain alterations be made in the
original agreement made at the time
of the purchase of the ground in or
der that 'the final payimnt may be
made and the pajiers be made out.
The desired changes had reference to
the opening of certain of the streets
bounding the tract. The matter was
referred to the street and alley com
mittee, mayor, city attorney and city
engineer to report.
A communication was read from
the city authorities of Danville asking
the cooperation of Rook Island in a
movement for the reduction of fire
insurance rates in the cities of the
state. It was referred to the finance
committee and city attorney.
