THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS
TUESDAY. JUNE 21, 1910.
HAS NO PERMIT;
Unusual Situation Arises Over
Henry Tappendorf Improvement.
PETITION IS . WITHDRAWN
After Right to Install Frame Front
on Fourth Avenue Had Been
Denied by Committee.
Henry Tappendorf, the contractor,
has been denied permission by -the
city council to erect a brick factory
building, with a frame front, on his
. property at 1816-1820 Fourth avenue.
An adverse report on the request was
returned to the council at its meeting
of last evening by the fire and light
committee and the aldermen of the
Fourth ward. Accompanying the re
port was data secured upon a request
ed investigation by. City Engineer Wal
lace Treichler showing that the thick
ness of the brick walls did not confarm
to the ordinance requirements. Be
fore the council took a vote upon the
report of the committee, J. L. Haas, as
attorney for Mr. Tappendorf, withdrew
the petition for a permit. Incidentally
Mr. Haas took occasion to criticise
those who had been busying themselves
In seeking to defeat what he termed
a creditable improvement. For 20
years, Mr. Haas said, the planing mill
work had been carried on in a frame
building, and there was no objection
raised by the owners of the adjoining
Now, When Mr. Tappendorf proposed
to modernize and enlarge his plant, the
storm arose. It was beyond his un
derstanding. He had heard much of
a desire to encourage industrial growth
In the city. Surely such antagonism
towards Mr. Tappendorf, he said, did
not evidence that spirit. Dr. W. H.
Ludewig, one of the objectors, served
notice upon the council that, despite
that the council had refused the per
mit, Mr. Tappendorf was proceeding
with his new building In open defiance
of the city ordinances. The tone of
the doctor's remarks indicated that if
there was not interference by the city
authorities an appeal to the courts
would result. The mayor announced
that the permit having been withdrawn
the matter was no longer before the
council, and it therefore remained for
the city authorities to take cognizance
of any violation that may appear and
Junk Yard Held a "ulnnce.
The street and alley committee of
fered a report declaring the junk yard
of Mr. Taxman at 1517 Fourth avenue
a nuisance and ordering it removed.
H. M. McCaskrin appeared as attorney
for Mr. Taxman in resisting concur
rent action by the council upon the
report. Health Commissioner A. N.
Mueller said, that the barn on the
presmises was unsanitary", inasmuch as
it was filled with disease-laden rags.
James Blythe, whose mother, Mrs.
Katherine Blythe, is the owner of a
property adjoining the junk yard, ad
dressed the council. He said the yard
was filled with old iron, rags and
bones, and that, aside from its unsight
liness, the noise produced by the break
ing of the old iron, an operation car
ried on Sundays as well as week days,
was the source of constant annoyance
to the people whose homes were in the
neighborhood. He stated that it was
mpossible for his mother to keep a
tenant In the house she owned near
the junk yard owing to these objec
tionable features. Mr. Taxman, who
owns the junk yard, told the council
that the yard had been there 24 years,
and it was strange that at this late day
it should be an object of attack by the
neighbors. He was willing to conform
to the city sanitary law3 in every par
ticular. If the rags imperiled the
health of the neighborhood they would
be stored elsewhere, but he questioned
the right of the city to force him to
remove the iron from the premises.
Old bones were not kept there, he main
tained. He believed the Blythes had
an ax to grind; that they were trying
to force him to buy their property at
an exorbitant figure. However, he
would buy their property if they chose
to sell at a fair valuation. He offered
to purchase it on an appraisement by
any three real estate men in the city.
It was decided to refer the report to
the street and alley committee to an
adjourned meeting of the council to
be held this evening, at which time
the question of whether the city is to
buy a street sprinkling wagon will be.
determined also. Bids on wagons have
been received from three concerns, the
Tri-City Electric Sprinkler company,
the Austin Western company and the
Studebaker Bros. Manufacturing com
pany. There is but slight difference in
the prices quoted.
Making; Way for Flow Company.
Acting on a communication received
from the Tri-City Railway company,
the street and alley committee was
empowered to permit removal of the
railway tracks on Fifth street. Second
to Fourth avenues, whenever building
plans of the Rock Island Plow com
pany had advanced to the point where
the street, which has been vacated to
the use of the company, Is needed. J.
G. Huntoon, general superintendent of
the Tri-City Railway company, was
present at the meeting, and advised
the council that it was the wish of the
plow company that the tracks on Fifth
street be removed at an early date.
Mr. Huntoon was asked by Alderman
John Holzhammer when his company
planned to commence work on Its
promised extensions In the city, and
Mr. Huntoon answered that the com
pany was doing everything possible to
the end that all of the new work would
be completed during the present year.
He said the company was now waiting
for steel; that it all had been ordered,
and that some of it ought to be deliv
ered early in July.
Pump Bids Cloac
The city's second call for bids on the
old Holly pump at the Twenty-fourth
street waterworks station resulted as
follows: M. Sosna & Co., $512.50;
Taxman Bros., $552; Morris & Lewis,
$552.50. These bids are all lower than
those submitted at the previous open
ing. The proposals were referred to
the waterworks and finance commit
tees with power to sell or reject.
Mayor Collects 1 .10.
The mayor announced that he had
collected by subscription $150 to apply
on the city's assessment of $250 by the
Upper Mississippi River Improvement
association, whose convention is to be
held in St. Paul next month. He sug
gested that the city make an appropria
tion to help complete the total. It was
decided to lay the matter over to the
first meeting in July.
Defining; Sane Fourth.
The ordinance committee and city at
torney were instructed to bring in a re
port explicitly defining the city's regu
lations, as suggested in a recent mes
sage of the mayor, as to the sale and
discharge of Fourth of July explosives.

Moline Merchant Identified Bolt

PEDDLED IN THIS CITY
First Arrested for Selling Without
License, He Is Now Held on
Max Potter, arrested two weeks ago
on a charge of peddling without a li
cense, faces the more serious charge of
larceny as the result of the efforts of
the local police force. Potter had tried
to dispose of a quantiy of cloth still on
the bolt, and when the police learned
this they were convinced that he had
stolen it, although they had no proof.
They held him, however, and com
menced an investigation. From an ex
press agent on the Rock Island road
they learned of Potter's having sent a
bolt of cloth to Pekln, and they got
hold of this and finally learned that it
belonged to John Anderson of Moline,
who is engaged there as a merchant

He kept on toiling to the end
And saved a little money.
He died last week, and folks now say
He saved a little' money;
Nobody mourns although he may
Have saved a little money;
I hope that when I come to die
Folks will not scorn me where I lie.
Therefore, old scout, I shall not try
To save a little money.

Lorked in Hold.
And then, at the moment of triumph,
while Petit was discovering 400 pounds
of illegal captured fish, the crew of the
fisher locked him in the hold. That
was not all. They proceeded to cut
the tow line that bound their craft to
theiMichigan vessel, gaily turned about
and headed for Wisconsin waters.
The Osborn immediately started in
pursuit, but the fishing vessel moved
faster. There was a long stern chase,
which ended by the Osborn giving up
in disgust and leaving -Petit to his

When the Osborn had disappeared
