WANT TO GET-IN
Annexation of Portion of South
Rock Island is Pro
posed. FROM 15TH TO 24TH STREET
Petition is Being Considered by the
City Council Delegation at
City Hall Last Night.
At the meeting of the city council
last evening a petition was received
and signed by a majority of the prop
erty holders and voters of the tract,
asking that the necessary steps toward
annexation of South Rock Island ter
ritory lying between Fifteenth and
Twenty-fourth streets and south to
Aiken streets be taken immediately.
The territory now seeking entrance to
the cily, is described asfollows, begin
ning at the line of Eighteenth avenue,
on the center line between Fifteenth
and Sixteenth streets, thence south to
Aiken street, making a break near Aik
en street to include one lot west of the
straight line; thence east to Seven
teenth street; thence south to the
north line of Richmond's subdivision;
thence east to Twenty-fourth street;
thence north to Eighteenth avenue, .1
break being made in the line near
Eighteenth avenue to include two acres
east of Twenty-fourth street, on Eight
The petitioners, a number of whom
were present at the meeting, asked
that a special election on the annex
ation proposition be held, in order that
the territory may be annexed as soon as
possible. The matter was referred to a
committee of the whole of the council
next Thursday afternoon, when the al
derman will inspect plats of the Beech
er & Walsh and Wallace Grove addi
tions, and look over the territory it is
proposed to annex. At that time
the council will consider the possibil
ity of holding a special election.
Mwlii With I'nvor.
Undoubtedly the proposition for an
nexation of the tract of South Rock
Island would meet with favor on all
sides in the city, and that it is popular
in the tract which seeks admission is
shown by the fact that the committee
which circulated the petition to the
council secured the signatures of the
majority of the voters in less than
three days. The men pushing the mat
ter in South Rock Island are W. T.
Drips. John Campbell, and W. E. Bail
ey, and in getting the matter in shape
for presentation to the council, they
were assisted by Hon. William Jack
son. Those interested earnestly de
sire a special election m the proposi
tion of annexation, and if such an elec
tion can be held with reasonable ex
pense, one will be called in the city.
However, should the proposition await
the genera! election in the fall, the in
terest is sufficient to insure a carrying
vote. There is no opposition in the
city, but at. a general election it fre
quently happens that special measures
are defeated because of the failure of
the majority of voters to mark their
ballots on the proposition. With such
general interest in the matter as there
is in this case, though, the vote would
probably be heavy enough to carry the
Popiilnllon of 3iO.
The territory is a little over a quar
ter of a mile wide, and half a mile
long. It has a population of about 350,
and there are about 70 voters. Annex
ation to the city, with resulting advan
tages of school facilities, police and
firo protection, lighting, uniform per
manent street and sidewalk grades,
would do much to upbuild the territory,
and the benefits to the city are obvious.
Mayor McCaskrin called the atten
tion of the council to the fact that the
failure of the city attorney to confirm
the commissioner's report in the coun
ty court on the various improvements
contemplated is causing delay In these
matters, and the question of either se
curing action on the part of the city at
torney'or of employing assistant coun
sel to attend to the matters was dis
cussed. The council will act on this
matter Thursday afternoon at the ad
A petition was presented from resi
dents of the Seventh ward, asking the
installation of a sewer system between
Thirtieth and Forty-sixth streets, and
from the city limits to the river. The
petition was referred to the board of
local Improvements. The petition,
which bears several hundred signa
tures, was brought about through the
action of the Bluff Improvement asso
ciation. Confirm Patrolmen.
The council voted to coiftlrm Charles
Ohms and John Sullivan as patrolmen.
The confirmation was by unanimous
vote. The bond of James Goff as pa
trolman was received and accepted.
The official canvass of the school
election returns was made. Hamlin H.

All this is based on the supposition
that the weather man will succeed in
delivering what he has promised for
the great national birthday. He has
assured that all will be well, with fair
