OPPOSED TO JI NK YARD.
Just before the meeting adjourned a i
resolution was introduced and passed i
by the club, condemning the location 1
of a Junk yard at the proposed site, i
Twenty -first street and Third avenue,'
it beitg UTged that this locality would!
eventually be the wholesale district, j
and that a junk yard in the heart of I
the city would be undesirable. A spir-i
lien n-scussson followed, and a mo
tion to table the resolution was lost,
and the matter finally carried. The
Rait resoived by the Fiftv Thousand
club of the city of Rock Island that !
we note with deep regret, the passage!
by the city council of the city of Rock
Island of an ordinance amending sec
tion 15 of chapter 41 of the revised
ordinances of this city entitled, "Pawn
Shops and Junk Yards," whereby the
consent of property owners was re-'
quired before Junk yards could be lo-,
cated and operated; and thereby with-1
drawing from property holders all
right concerning such location. There
fire, be It. !
Resolved, that this Fifty Thousand !
hud nercDy asks said council to re
consider said ordinance and restore - tttt--
the rithts of property owners as they'. i
existed prior to the passage of said ', ' further I
amending ordinance. Re it further Kesoived. u;al tmce a iunk 'arJ ls
