There was a very important meeting at
the office of Secrett xv Medill, of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement Assoriation
this morning. It was in response to a
call for a special meeting of the commit
tee on public works, to inspect
the plans and estimates of Engineer
Geo. W. Bovnton for the proposed viv
duct over the railroad tracks at the foot
of Twenty -fourth street. All the mem-,
bers of the committee were present Maj.
H. C. Connelly, an 1 Messrs. P. L. Mitch-.
ell, E. D. Sweeney, J. J. Reimer and
Henry Carae. Et gineer Boynton sub
mitted a complete and comprehensive
report, accompanied by a letter of trans
mittal in which he says:
In designing this viaduct three condis
tions are governed :
J) irst. A clear "heart room ol 19 feet
required by the railroad companies above
Second. The necessity of leaving
Third avenue in Rock Island open for
Third. The importance of leaving the
United States bridge undisturbed in so far
as the masoor7 aol general plan of the
bridge is concerned.

and on seven,! of the important viaducts
in Chicago, when; they are fubjecied to

The enclosed "comparison of grades
shows these grides; al.-'o those of several
of the most important streets in the City
of Davenport. 1: mav be added here
that the grades proposed are substan
tiallv the same as that now used in the
south approach t the existing bridge
It is proposed to elevate the noor on
the government 1 ridge by means of new-
floor beams sin ni rteit on brackets riveted
to the vertical (Kists of the bridge. This
part of the work can be done at little
cost and requires no change in the general
plan of the structure. The load on the
existing bridge would not. be materially
increased nor its stability endangered in
In the accompanying detailed estimate
you will please note the abseuce of any
provision for tie cost of lowering the
railroad tracks oi for damage to abutting
property on Twenty-fourth street.
It was cot possible for me to estimate
such damage to adjacent properly: and
C, 11 I. & P. and the C , li . 1
railroad com paries advise me they wil
meet anv expeiise made necessary bv
lowering their tracks one foot, according
to the plan.
The importance of the proposed via
duct becomes vety evident, when one re
members: The average monthly travel
over the governrienl bridges for the year
1887 and 1888 wus 87,510 foot passengers
and 28,952 team.
It has also teen estimated that the
present approach to the bridge is ob
strueted once in every four minutes dur
ing each day of twelve hours, while for
each day of twenty-four hours the way is
obstrusted once in every five and one
Then comes Engineer Boynton's
rLAJIS AND ESTIMATES,
which are as follows:
Tot il length of viaduct au'l approaches HS0 feet,
Earth embankment 135 feet
Four plate girders. 45 feel each ISO feet

eresting comparison of grades proponed
for the approaches to the Rock Island
viaduct, with grades used on other im-
structtres and streets, which
shows that the grades

THE COMMITTEE'S SATISFACTION.
The committee after reviewing these
plans adopted the following resolution:
Rock Island, 111., January 15, 1839.
At a meeting f the committee on public
buildings and public works of tha Citi
zens' Improvement association, held at
the office of tfce secretary. January 15,
1839, the plant- and specifications of En
gineer Boynton, for the proposed viaduct
to span the railroad tracks at the south
approach of tbe government bridge, were
submitted for approval. After a full dis
cussion of tbe same, on motion of Mr. P.
L. Mitchell, said plans and specifications
were adopted by unanimous vote.
On motion of Mr. John J. Reiraers,
Messrs. H- C. Connelly and Henry Carse
were appointel a committee to submit
and turn over the same to tbe comman
dant of Rock Island arsenal for bis ap
proval and to be forwarded by him to the

with such recommendations as may be
deemed by hin expedient

THE iDtLEAD DISEASE.
Hone Important Faetw Relative to
Diphtheria Care that Parent
Should Take With Their Children
How contaaton In Carries.
Among other important sublets that
came under the attention and discussion
of the Iowa and Illinois Central District
Medical Society at its meeting at Daven
port last week, was that much dreaded
disease diphtheria. The physicians
present all agreed that diphtheria is a
filth disesse, and that in many instances
the source of the disease was found in the
very homes of the victi ma. The disease
me Jed only foul air to develop its
growth such as comes from defective
drains or sewers, or decomposing filth.
Dr. Cantwell, citv physician of Daven
port, demonstrated bv statistics that
damp air is a nourisher of the disease.
The system of the patient is affected by
it through inoculation, and it takes place
usually at the nose or throat, to the ma
ceus membrane of which it attaches it
self: it is carried in the air. or in the
water or other beverages including the
boiled ones; the poison finds entrance
into the system difficult if the lining
membrane of the throat and nose is in a
perfectly healthy slate, and easy if in-
flimed. as in acute or chronic catarrh; a
simple sore throat especially furnishes all
the conditions favorable for inoculation.
Au eastern journal recently contained
an article on the disease which bears out
almost exactly the views expressed by
most of the physicians present at the
meeting of the Iowa and Illinois Medical
association. Stys this journal: How
to escape diphtheria is at least par
tially answered, when the cause
and methods by which the poi
son is conveyed are described. One point
needs to be brought into reat promi
nence viz: that when the air passages
are in a healthy state it is not easy for
the poison of the disease to fix itself one
with a sore throat is in the most tavora
ble condition to receive the poison
and take the disease This fact par
ents must remember; aid they who
would purchase safety for their little ones
must be especially careful of them when
ever they have throat trouble, even if it
appears but trifling. Never under any
circumstances, should a child having a
sore throat, even though the attack be
the slightest possible, be seut to school
before it has completely recovered.
Overcrowded as man? school buildings
are, they are often hotbeds for diphtheria
poison. Children with diphtheria do not
always appear to be id; far from it
Many a child having the d.sease in a mild
form but just as dangerous to others as
though it were of a malignant type is
yet able to attend school, at least during
the first day or two of an attack. When
the average mother has a child ill, what
ever the disease, if her neighbors an 1
friends fail to visit her then, she feels
hurl and considers them lacking in syra
pathy. It makes no difference if they
have children of their own for whom they
fear possible contagion; she will accept
no excuse Ibis feeling leads many to
take risks which are no less than sinful,
and so contagion is carried from house to
house, and lives are absolutely thrown
away rather than that some neighbor be
slighted. A child ill should invariably be
quarantined until a physician (jives the
assurance that the disease is not "catch
ing." Once mike that custom general
and you greatly reduce the death rate.
A child suffering from diphtheria
should be isolated from the first and kept
so for about three weeks after convales
ence begins. The air of its rooms should
be saturated with anticeptics, and under
the physicians' directions every possible
chance of the poison being conveyed
through the nurse into other rooms of the
house, or elsewhere, should be prevented.
Every identical thing which has been in
the atmosphere of the sick room should
be thoroughly disinfected before it leaves
it. As to how to prevent children from
acquir ng the disease other than by ex
posure to an infected person, tha only
way ts to provide for them the best hy
gienic conditions. To make home
healthy is the first step to take in pre'
Perfect ventilation is, of course, imper
alive. If a child is much in the open
air, it is less likely to take cold easily.
and that colds render children more liable
to take dephtheria must be always kept
in mind. If a child is troubled with
chronic nasal catarrh or has enlarged
tonsils, and is a frequent, sufferer from
sore throat, it should be held by the par
eti is as sufficient evidence that their home
is unhealthy. If satisfied that err.irs on
their own part lack of cleanliness, im
perfect ventilation, etc. are not ac
countable for its unbealthiness, then they
should move to other quarters without
Let everyone understand that if diph
theria enters their homes, they will be al
most always to blame for it. When the
responsibility is placed where it belongs
and people feel it, then there will be but
comparatively few cases of this much

The 'Bad Boy" or rather the "bad

to a good audience at Harper's theatre
last evening. It was bad because it was
intended to be. and therefore it was good
in point of merit. The performance is a
dramatization of some of the more dev
elish pranks of the young villian Geo.
Peck wrote about so extensively In his
Milwaukee Sun a few years ago. It is
intended to be rollicking, hilarious, mis
chievous and it is so.

President Cable has 'sent the following
letter to New York to show who broke
the gentlemens agreement:
As it is only fair to me, after the un
just criticisms made during the confer
ence of the presidents this week regard
ing my meeting the cutting of rates Dy
certain lines west of Chicago. I take the
liberty of sending to each of the gentle
men present at such, conference a copy of
an affidavit received this morning, which
enables me to place before them informal
tion that I possessed, but which I did not
wish to give until I could do so in this
form. The affidavit clearly shows a vio
lation of the agreement of the presidents.
which wert into force Jan. 1. As I am
advised, this cut in rites has not been
met by any of tbeflPcompetitors.
The affidavit, which is dated at Chica
go, Jan. 9, is made by William J. Pope,
head of the grain firm of Pope & Lewis
In it he swears that he has in his posses
sion an original contract tr the pur
chase of grain at Fairchild, Neb., signed
by a prominent commission merchant at
St. Louis, of which this is an extract:
This confirms purchase of you this day
fifty cars (SiH) bushels- each) of no. x
corn at 80J cents per bushel, free on
boaid and 20 for all corn loaded in Mis
souri Pacific cava and shipped via Hia
watha. January and February ship
ments, St. Lnuis weights and inspec
tion. Care Central Elevators,
Mr. Pope explains in the affidavit that
the difference of 9 cents in the price of
corn shipped by the Missouri Pacific and
that by othei lines as- aa actual cut in
rates by the Missouri Pacific of 3 cents
per 100 pounds. The regular rate from
airfield to St. Louis is 20 cents a hun
dred, which is equivalent to 112-10
cents a bushel. The rate from the same
point to Chicago is 25 cents a bun-
red. The uiffertnee of 9J cents a
hubel made hy the St. Louis mer
chant mttkes the actual rate of the
Missouri Pacific on corn from Fair
field to St. Louis 1? cents a 100 pounds,
cut of 3 cents from the regu
lar tariff. Mr. Pope states that he is
Dforrued and believes that the St. Jos-
pb & Grand Island railroad receives and
retains its full proportion of the regular
rate, and the special rate thus made by
the Missouri Pacific prevents the ship
ment of grain from Fairfield to Chicago
as long as the other railroads exact, the
schedule rate. He added that it has acta
ally resulted in the diversion from Chi
cago to St. Louis of a large traffic origi-
ating in the territory in which Fairfield
is situated. Annexed to this affidavit is
that of four officers and agents of the
Rock Island road who have examined the
original contract in the possession of Mr.
Pope. They agree that it bears on its
face every evidence of being a genuine
nstumenl. The presidents' agreement
went into t Sect on Jan. 1, and the con
tract is dated two days later.
Railroad Rota-y Plow.
The C , R. I. & P. has been shipping a
ew invention in the way of a rotary
snow plow, west lately. One was in the
Rock Inland yards the other day, and it
was viewed bv railroad men with much
nterest . The plow consists of a car con
ducted with heavily riveted iron frame
and strongly built trucks, on which is
placed a locomotive boiler of a capacity
to supply steam to a pa:r of Is by S2
cylinder engines used to operate the re
volving wheel and fan. On this wheel.
which makes a high number of revolu
tions, are placed twelve knives.or buckets
by which the snow is carried to a point
ust beyond tbe top center, where an open-
ng in the box which encases the revoiv
og wheel allows the centrifugal force to
carry the snow to one side of the track.
The engines are placed one on each
side of the boiler, and are fitted wi h
regular locomotive link motion- Thev
also bwvelhe throttle vaive and a reverse
lever, by means of which latter the mo
tion of the wheel can be reversed and the
snow thrown in an opposite direction.
The distance to which the snow can be
thrown is determined by its weight and
the rapidity of the revolving wheel. The
width of the plow is ten feet seven inches.
diameter of knife wheel nine feet, and
maximum number of revolutions 250 per
