NO ALUM, NO LIME PHOSPHATE
The long hoped for and much de
manded improving of the streets of
Rock Island, received a serious set
back yesterday at the hands of the
council. The recommendation of the
board of local improvements that
Fourth avenue from Sixteenth to
Twentieth streets be paved with as
phalt, was lost for want of a second
when the proposition was introduced
to the council by Mayor H. M. Schriv
er. president of the improvement body.
Along with the resolution to pave,
Mayor Schriver stated that he had al
ready gone on record as being in favor
of improving the city's thoroughfares
and that in the case in hand there was
an absolute necessity for the paving
inasmuch as at least half of the por
tion of the stretch which it was de
eired to pave is at present practically
impassable. As an instance of this he
told of an occasion last week when a
wagon was stuck in the middle of the
block between Nineteenth and Twen
tieth streets and had to be pulled out
by another team.
Following the reading of the recom
mendation of the board and the accom
panying resolution calling for the pav.
ing to proceed as recommended, there
was a brief silence and then Commis
sioner Rudgren arose and asked for
information as to how the vote of the
board had stood on the matter and
what was the sentiment of the proper
ty owners. The mayor informed him
that the vote of the improvement body
was two against one, Commissioner
Reynolds having opposed the paving
with the exception of the block be
tween Nineteenth and Twentieth. He
also admitted that there had been ob
jections from the property owners but
said that they were not for any vital
reason and that the main objection
seemed to be that they wanted the
start of the street improving to be
made on Second and Third avenues, or
else make the job a general one.
SO OXE SECOXDS MOVE.
The discussion lasted sometime, but
ai the end of it. the second to the mo
tion of the mayor had not yet been
spoken and the mayor finally proclaim
ed the motion lost for that reason. It
was a hard blow at the improvement
project and was a recession from the

that he would have the ordinance call.

C05F1RM PARK GRAXT.
The council, upon motion of Com
missioner Jonas Bear, finally approved
the granting of the use of Reservoir
park as a public athletic field. The
commissioner of public property was
instructed to keep full control over the
place but to let the board of education
make the desired improvements such
as laying out a football field, baseball
diamond, tennis courts and running
track. It was expressly stipulated
that the park is to be a public one in
every sense and that everyone will
have the right to use it.
TO PAT njl KED EMPLOYE.
On motion of Commissioner Hart,
the city clerk was instructed to keep
the name of William O'Brien upon the
city payroll for a period of 30 days. Mr.

he will be able to return to work and
in the meantime his wages will be paid
regularly to him.

mentary report on the progress of his
inventory of city rroperty. His fig
ures were on the levee upon which he
placed a value of $117,000 and upon
Ixmg View park, the latter being ap
praised at $151,030, two-thirds of
which lies in the grounds alone and
the other third in the improvements.
As far as he has gone, Commission
er Bear finds that the city has proper
ty valued at a total of $1,301,906 and
he says the amount will be $2,000,000

PAVING IS ORDERED
Board of Improvements Acts Yester
day After Conference With the
The board of local improvements
unanimously ordered the paving of
Thirty-fourth street from Seventh to
Ninth-and-a-half avenues, after a
conference yesterday afternoon with
property owners from along the line
of the proposed improvement. The
paving will be of brick and it is ex
pected that it will be laid yet this
fall as the street is in miserable con
dition having never been repaired
after the heavy spring rains which
caused huge ruts in it.
The original paving proposition in
cluded the improvement of Tenth
avenue from Thirty-fourth to Thir
tieth streets, but because of objections
that part of the paving was cut out.
Saturday a proposition to pave
Sixth avenue from Thirty-fourth to
Thirty-fifth street will be threshed out
before the property owners and the

The New Suits Are
Coming in Every Day
Charming are the New Styles Some
of the Points of Interest Are:
THE coats are longer instead of the very
abbreviated jacket of spring, these
Autumn tailor mades have 28-inch
coats coming well down the hips.
Fabrics are heavier of course. Heavy twil
led serges, boucle suitings, novelty diagonals
are some of the more wanted fabrics.
Much velvet is used. Not only for collars
and cuffs, but for trimming as well.
Sleeves are put in, as a rule, as smoothly as
in a man's coat no gathers.
Skirts look but little wider though they are
wider, being cut on straight and graceful
lines. Just as smart and quite a bit more
comfortable to walk in.
Navy blue is popular as ever, but brown,
deep violet and dark greys are also good, es
pecially the browns.
Beautiful tailoring, fine linings and correct
details are, as always, distinguishing features
of the McCabe suits. No amount of talk and
bluster will gainsay the fact that for the cor
rect, dependable women's suits at the smallei
price, you have to go to McCabe's.
