What appears to be a purpose to en
list the city government as a club iu
business difference was presented -i
the council last evening, when two com
munications were received from the
looney interests, demanding that th?
council instruct the mayor, city clcrli
uid city marshal to notify G. A. Koes
ter to remove alleged obstructions to
tho streets from his buildings on Fifth
avenue near Thirty-first street, and at
1S15 Second avenue. Tho socalled o"o
structions to the street are defined as
bay windows on the second floors, an
steps projecting over the sidewalk. Al
derman Brooks, when tho clerk had
tiiibdied reading the communications
moved to table them, but a substitute
by Alderman Bobbins, that they be re
fened to the street and alley commit

The session of the council was
long one. and in view of the fact that
all of this year's funds and a lar;
part of next year's anticipated rev

transacted an unusual amount of bu
iness. A committee from Star Canton

The receipt of a communication ask

account, for Sweeney & Walker and
Searle & Marshall for services in the
Schnell-Tappendorf case against : t.h-?
city, caused a stir among the alder
men. and Mayor McCaskrin took occa
sion to make a political speech on the
subject, declaring that he would sign
no more vouchers for these legal firms.
The communication, which recited the
proceedings in the case to date, was
referred to the finance committee, the
mayor and city clerk to secure an item

Another flurry was caused by the
reading of a notice served on the may
or and city clerk yesterday of an in
junction suit in the circuit court for
the purpose of enjoining the clerk from
having placed on the official ballot the
proposition of the annexation of a pa't
of South Rock Island. The notice was
served by Kenworthy & Kenworthy,
who represent Henry McCarthy in the
injunction bill. The aldermen took oc

engaged for the city in one of tho
city's most important court fights t
lake a case against the city when pub
nc sentiment m hock island is so
strongly in favor of the annexation.
City Attorney Olson explained the na
ture of the injunction bill, and ex
pressed the belief that he can without
difficulty frustrate the purpose of th
suit. He was instructed to use ill
honorable means to insure the submit
ting of the proposition to the vote of
the people at this coming election.
For Fire Protection.
A petition was received from resi
dents of the bluff district of the Sev
enth ward, asking that steps be taken
for the establishment of a hose house
on the hill in the southeastern part of
the city. The need of the protection
against fire which such a move would
give is obvious, and was fully stated in
the petition. John Lindholm and Hen
ry Heuck were present, representing
the signers, and called attention to the
growing needs of the district. Mr.
Lindholm called attention to the prob
ability that within a short time aftor
the admission of any part of South
Rock Island, a hose house near the re
servoir will be demanded, and that !n
locating such a company as is proposed
for the Seventh ward this should be
considered. Alderman Wilson sug
gested that the feasibility of rebuild
ing the Twenty-sixth street hose house
be considered in this connection; and
when the petition for a bluff house was
referred to the fire and light commit
tee, the mayor , and aldermen of the
Sixth and Seventh wards, this matter
was also referred.
Piikh Mdewnlk Ordinance.
The council passed an ordinance for
concrete sidewalks in the Seventh
ward, amounting to about $y2 miles.
The total cost of the improvement is
estimated at $18,454.00. The improve
ment ordinance for laying water mains
in G. Elmer Blakesley's addition by
special taxation was also adopted, the
only opposing vote being that of Al
K.Ntimnte Im l'renrntrd.
The mayor presented an estimate
from Architect L. M. Drack for thn
cost of remodeling the city hall build
ing according to the plans and specili
cations he presented to the council re
cently. The estimate calls for an ex
penditure, aside from the cost of in
stalling an elevator, of about $5,700,
and with the elevator will make the
total cost about $7,000. The estimates,
as were, the plans, were submitted lo
the committee of the whole.

ment was referred to the ordinance
committee. A similar amendment was
projiosed some time ago, but was not
acted upon by the council.
Itefcreniluiii Too l.nte.
Mayor McCaskrin called up his refer
endum ordinance which he presented
at the meeting two weeks ago. The
aldermen, on investigating it, found
innumerable difficulties and legal que
Hons, and declined to act in haste on
so important a measure. As a resuU
the ordinance was referred back to
the ordinance committee, and if adopt
ed it can not become effective until
jthe next general election. Had it been
; adopted last evening, it would have
jbeen submitted with other propositions
at the coming spring election. It is
possible that an ordinance of this chr
acter may be passed so that it may be
submitted to the voters at the time of
the annual school election.
The council amended its rules in re
lation to committees, to increase the
number of the members of the finance
committee to seven, one from each
ward. This mater was presented some
weeks ago. The committee has been
