In presenting the resolution. Mayor
Schriver railed attention to the fact
that approximately 75 per cent -of fte
property holders were in favor of the
paving project. Comml.v: ! - ke

Tl.e mayor then called atten'ion to
the tact tliat in the last year the im- j
provmients in MoJine have been al
most three times greater -ban those ;
accomplished in lock Island. "Id any j
project of this sort." contin:.,l the ,
mayor, "there are always thai? w!o i
object. Does this administration u:h j
to have the record of sitting idly by
and of not advocating or pushing to j
completion Improvements of any sort?
If there are people who live on that i
Btreet who cannot afford the cost of I
paring, should they hold 1 up? We
Khou'd consider the good which will J
accrue to the greatest nurrfber. Many
people have bought 'lots for specula
tive purposes and naturally they ob
ject to the additional expendl'ure.
The point has been made that the
property holders from Thirteenth to
Eighteenth avenue do not want the
paving. My understanding is that
Twenty-flfth street is to be made a
thoroughfare, and that the improve
ment would not be desired should it
be done in a half way manner."
HARDSHIP KUR !Y.
A. J. D. Moeller, in behalf of the
property holders from Thirteenth to
Eighteenth avenue stated that but
very few were in favor or the paving.
He stated that residents in that see
lios had been burdened of late with
assessment for sidewalks, water and
sewers, and that the added expense j
would be more than the people could I
Stand. Many of them, he c aimed, were j
making an effort 'o pay for their :
liomcs, and when the assessments had !
lieen made for the water nnd sewer
Improvements, h;d been put to the
necessity of borrowing the money. He
claimed that the new burden would
force them in o bankruptcy.
Commissioner Tlurigren stated that
he was acquainted wit':i conditions
and agreed with Mr. Mo-llor that the
burden was tlrendy sulll ent.

SDlrltual st mediums nre nn against ir
in Rock Island. In past years, the
i city fathers Instead of considering
j them as boons to mankind, have
frowned upon them with suspicion and
distrust. A cly ordinance passed
provides that all such "slickers" shall
take out a license before they give
out any advance dope on future hus
bands and ocean voyages, said li
cense to market at $10 the day or $50
the week. The ordinance further pro
vides -hat all those facing to take out
a license before rolling up their
sleeves for the day, shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor and subject to ar
rest. The reason for the high license
price Is evidently due to the theory to
the effect tha' where fortune tellers
are concerned remoteness lends en
dearment. It appears that one Prof. Burton hag
cast covetous glances upon this terri
tory for Borne lit le time and has long
ed to get his salary hooks on some of
the soft kale which prevails here
abouts, but that $10 a day has acted
in the nature of a damper. As a re
run tee professor has engaged the
iegal Berrlces of Clarence J. Schroe
der, who yesterday appeared before
the city commission and asked that the
ordinance be revised so as to reduce
the license fee to say $25 a month.
Mr. Schroeder cited a ruling of the
supreme court of Illinois to the effect
' that the state legislature has not given
the cities power to license the black
art and to make It a misdemeanor
when no license is secured.
The matter was referred to the city

There is a school for discontented
school children in Kansas City, Mo.,
according to information received at
the United Stattes bureau of education.
The "Lathrop industrial school" has
been organized for the purpose of
educating children over 14 years of
age who have reached the fifth grade
and find the work of the regular school
The school proceeds on the theory
tfaat in many -cases the distaste of
these children for school is due to
the fact that the ordinary studies are
not adapted to their particular needs.
Such pupils frequently appear "bacf
ward" or lazy, when in reality all tliey
need is a different form of educational
activity. . Accordingly, Lathrop school
gives them what is known as "prevo
cational" training. Courses in bench
