OLD BRICK HOUSE
IN BIG GOLLAPSE
Building Erected Before the
War Goes "One Hoss
After standing exposed to the
weather and without repair for over
half a century, the south half of the
brick apartment house located at 419
Twentieth street and owned at pres
ent by Charles Case went the one
hoss' shay route this morning and
started to go to pieces all at once. Pe
destrians passing the dwelling about
8 o'clock heard a rumble and a crash
and when they turned to ascertain the
cause of he disturbance the south
west corner of the building had col
lapsed. There was no one living in
the house at the time of the incident.
The building was erected three
years before the Civil war and at the
time it was built it was one of the
most elaborate residences in the city.
It was one of the first dwellings in
Rock Island to be built with brick.
Many prominent Rock Island resi
dents have resided in the dwelling but
of late it has been in such a state of
repair that It was not fit for habitation.

If Rock Island county supervisors,'
at their special meeting next week,
vote to take advantage of the offer of
state aid for road improvement and
indicate certain highways upon which
the money shall be expended, as they
are expected to do, the question of
what use shall be made of the funds
will be one of thejitmost Importance.
Some favor the immediate beginning
cf construction of hard roads, devoting
such funds as can be raised from year
to year to gradually add to the mile
age leading from the larger business
centers of the country. While com
paratively little road can be built each
year by this process, those favoring
the plan argue that it is the only way
to get permanent roads and the start
should be made with the first funds
available for the purpose.
Others favor use of the first money
appropriated with a view of bene
fiting a larger area. They contend
that such provision as has been made
thus far for financing highway im
provement is wholly inadequate to
build stone, brick or concrete roads
and that the few milei of hard road
that could be built annually with the
mpney available in the county would
be rather an aggravation than a bene
fit. They urge the selection of a lib
eral mileage for improvement, be
ginning with dirt roads rather than
the construction of expensive hard
ones. They would first have a com
petent engineer draw up a compre
hensive plan for grading, tiling and
ditching and would employ the funds
in this work and in keeping the high
ways dragged. In this way, they con
tend, a greater number of people
will receive the benefit, at least
in the beginning.
Such questions as these are expect
ed to be discussed at the organization
meeting at Edgington Saturday night
with the object of designating one or
more roads through the lower end of
the county to receive state aid.
