j Voicing the desire of every one who
Resides In the district west of Twelfth
street and aoaUi of Fourth arenae to
the city limits, either way, John Blake
of the Blake Specialty company asked
fh city com mission to take into con
sideration the matter of laying a com
Xrehenafre water system In that dis
trict, so that It -would not only care
for those who now own valuable prop
erty there, but would aid In securing
further manufacturers to locate plants
in that district. Mayor H. M. Schrlver
replied that while the city Is In no con
dition to take such action at present
because of the heavy drain on the
waterworks funds in the last two years,
the commission will look forward to
such action end as soon as possible
will take steps for Its advancement
IS VAJ.IABLB ASSET.
Fire protection Is a valuable asset
to any point In the city. Is something
that has been lacking In the south
west portion of tbe city for years and
Is something that will have to be
brought about so that advancement
can be made by the city. Danger
lurks in the vicinity because of the
inadequacy of the mains that are there
now, and this will have to be circum
vented before many more additions
are made to Rock Island's manufac
THAI! ARB TOO SMALL.
Nothing but small mains tap the dis
trict now, and it would be Impractical
to make an extension of any sort from
these smaller conduits. The new sys
tem will hare to be comprehensive
enough to include the whole district
and large eonugh eo that ample water
can be carried there when necessity
arises. A 12-inch water main is what
is needed, and till action for such a
system can be made the matter will
remain dormant. Sawdust piles, the
accumulation of years from the lum
ber mills, endanger the district, and
the only way to extinguish a fire of
any size Is to beat It out with clubs.
A statement of the finances of the
waterworks department Is to be pre
pared, together with one In which the
anticipated amount for next year will
be Included. It Is thought the work
will cost less than $4,000, because the
digging Is slight The dty will prob
ably be obliged to bear the burden of

gagement there, did not contest the
suit He was represented by Attor
ney George A. Trude. Mrs. Hers ap

liam Glaser. "Our life has been noth
ing but repeated nagging and cruelty
on his part." the actress testified.

1907, and six months later h throat.
I was black and blue. From that time
on his cruelty has neen unbearable."
Testimony was read from a deuosi-
tlon made in New York by Mrs. Herz's
brother, who lived with the couple In
that city. When William Glaser re
monstrated with Herz, Herz told
Glaser It was none of his business,
and defied Glaser to stop him. At
