THE BRIDGE BUSINESS.
tlon from the l'p-r End f

The Port Byron Globt of yesterday bad
the following suggestions which are
worth reading at least:
Speaking of the bridge business, would
it not be a good plan for Rock Island to
change the location of her Rock river
bridges from below to a considerable dis
tance above the dams, whpre the peril of
annual destruction might be wholly
averted? For instance: Open Twentieth
street through to Rock river, and from
the point where this rosd would strike
the river build a high bridge. We be
lieve, if we are correct in our survey.
that a line soi'th on Twentieth street
would strike the river some distance
above- the Watch Tower. If not far
enough above, the road could be made to
bear eist a quarter or a half mile with lit
tle additional trouble. It would cost con
Merable, to be sure, to build a hlzh
bridge, but it would be a safe one. out of
constant danger of being knocked out bv
floating ice, and brush and logs from
nroken dams. I he saving on annual re
pairs and rebuildiug would be great.
We believe" the business intsrests of
Rock Island would he greatly enhanced,
too, by such a change. Ninth street U
not the proper approach from the south
to the busy retail marts of the county
seat. The people of the lower half of the
county have to come to Milan to cross the
river; and from here they are led to the
lower end of the city. Twentieth street,
already a well macadamized street nearly
if not quite to the top of the bluff, would
tie a shorter approach from Rook river,
and would afford a much more pleasant
and direct entrance, and bring the farmer
to the heart of the city at once, instead of
landing him at the extreme lower out
skirts of town to Inquire the way to the
business center and to the court house.
Another consideration: Since the
watch tower has become so justly popu
lar as a pleasure resort attracting, as it
does, people from every part of this
county, and from adjoining counties,
too the day is not far distant when
those magnificent bluffs on Rock river,
for a distance of a mile or more east of
the tower, will he converted into beau
tiful parks, lawns and play grounds.
Tbey are Rock Island's natural
resort from the dust and heat of the city
and will inevtably he used as such in the
near future. Then what more valuable
or picturesque improvement could be
added to the natural beauty of this public
resort than a neat, substantial high
bridge, with a nice boulevard leading
direct therefrom to the city. Think of a
single span from one of these sturdy hills
to a great abutment on the Island. It
would be a beauty; and what a magnifi
cent view of the b'uffs this bridge would
We may be visionary; but still we be
lieve the idea is worth figuring on, es
pecially by Rock Island business men.
Perhaps the people of the county would
not be averse to assuming the malnten
ance of such a bridge one that they
could be sure would not have to be re
built every year; and possibly the voters
of the county might be persuaded to aid
Rock Island in such permanent enter
prise. Sure it is. that all the people of
the county, outside of those directly in
terested, look with suspicion on the traps
now spanning the several channels of
that stream just below the dams.
'Klhty Days Around the World."
Fleming's grand spectacular stage in
terpretation of Jules Verne's famous
novel, "Around the World in Eighty
Days," will be presented at Harper's the

Virginian of Nov. 5. last says:
"Around the World in Eighty Days" is
the wild vagaries of an enthusiast, brim
ful of the most intense imagination, re
gardless of time, place or ai-tion, but all

tic, with a kind of moonlight as a novel
accompaniment. The spectacles are got
ten up in the most superb oriental style,
ar.d with an exhilhiatiug ballet of lovely
women in intricate marches and move
ments. The whole piece is a conception
of the renowned Kiralfy's, with the help
of Gustave Dore in the magnificent scen

STREET CAR ENTERPISE.
The Improved Transit gyntrm toe-
To one standing anywhere along the
route of the Rock Island and Moline line
of the Holmes syndicate system between
Fifteenth and Thirty-fifth streets yester
day, the thought would have been that
he had been suddenly transferred to the
thoroughfares of one of the larger cities.
Stand anywhere you would between the
streets named and you could not . look
either way without seeing a car. Supt.
Schnitger's seven and one-half minute
system was inaugurated yesterday
and from the time the first cars left
their respective barns in the morning
until the last went in at night, every
thing passed off without a hitch. The
drivers were provided with copies of the
time table and they experienced no dim
culty in comprehending their duties.
Under the new arrangement thero will be
cars on the track from 5:30 a. ni to 10:45 a
m. and the manner in which the Improved
transit was appreciated, was shown in
the fact that it was one of the biggest or
dinary daystberoad has ever experienced.
Everybody rode, and tho indications are
that with a car near at hand at all times,
everybody will continue to ride. A com
mendable rivalry has sprung up between
the drivers ou the two different lines
which come together at Thirty fifth
street, and it surprised Supt. Schnitger
last night to learn that the cars via Thir-
tyflfth street to Riverside cemetery had
done the biggest share of the business on
the first day. This is the "palace car
branch and it runs through, a territory
that is likely to have mora traffic on Sun
day. During the week the old line will
no doubt hold its own, but there is no
reason to expect a falling off anywhere.
The management are assured of success
on the ground that the better facilities
that are given the public, the more will be
the travel. On the whole Supt. Schnit
ger is well pleased with the first day's
business under the new arrangement. lie
believes the public will appreciate the
syndicate's enterprise. The street cars
will now carry most, if not all of the
passengers to and from the upper C, R.
I. & P. depot and therefore add greatly
to public convenience and providing the
best arrangement possible to accommo
date the traveling public until the union
depot is built down town. At the outset
it doesn't look much as if Mr Holmes
was discriminating against Rock Island,
As soon as the new running arrange
ment is thoroughly put in operation,
track laying operations west on Second
avenue will be resumed.

Some undiscovered evil, fr.ni whose power
No cttin-n lit safe this bothers us;
And mates us rather hear the ills we hnve
Than fly toother that we kuow not of."
There seems to be a uniformity of
opinion that the proper thing to do is to
sell if it were not for the fact that by so
doing we would wipe out our city debt
and give the officers power to again bond
the city and waste our substance on gay
and frivolous city halls, etc.
It seems to me thai such small matters
should not divide our councils nor stand
in the way of a purely business transac
tion. The city can sell the waterworks.
The city can fix its terms of sale.
The city can say when the amount to
be paid for the property shall come due,
and what rate of interest it shall bear.
Of the city debt, 125.000 is due in 1802,
1170.000 in 1897. and S25 1MIO in itiuo
Can not our city council fix the terms
oi saie so mat no money except the sur
plus (if any) over and above the amount
of our bonded debt shall be paid. That
25,000 shall be due in 1892, if 170,000 in
1897 at 6 per ceut, and 5-"25,OO0 in 19 :2
at 5 per centT
What need to wipe out the city debt?
Will selling the waterworks cancel our
debt? Manifestly not.
So long as the bonds maturing in
1897 remain unpaid the city council
can not lawfully incur one dollar
of debt as the $170,000 is an exceas of
the constitutional 5 per cent limit.
oo we will be safe until 1897 by which
time perhaps a little sense can h
into the heads of some who need it.
The interest on the bonds rwreiupd
from the purchasers of the water works
will pay the interest on the citv hnnila
One hand will wash the other. The hands
of the citv government will he tiH hi the
city bonds, so that we mav be out of
debt In fact with all the hereditaments
and appurtenances of the . per cent
limit for our bulwark.
Dees it not look as if a business man
would take advantage of such nn nnnnr.
tunity in his own affairs? And as long
as this is "purely a business matter" n
Brother Olsen says, it is plain that our
city council should do what any business
man of shrewdness and sagacity would
do in such a case.
Working-men and XrwwpBpe.ru.
A working man in this city, says the
Albany Journal, who was complaining of
hard times recently, was asked how he
could afford to take a daily newspaper.
"Well," said be "I hope I shall never tie
too poor to take a paper. I thought I
was too poor for ten years after I was
married. My wife suggested that I take
a paper regularly, and I did, and it was
the most economical stroke of my life. It
kept me home evenings, afforded me
pleasure and instruction and was a com
fort to the whole family. I had to stop
the use of tobacco for a whole year once
in order to pay for the paper and the re
sult was that I have not cared for tobacco
since, and in that one item I have saved
enough to pay for several daily papers.
So long as I have money enough to buy
bread with, I will have money enough to
pay for my newspaper."
Who of us are without trouble be the
small or large? The blessings of health
are uest appreciated when we are sich
and in pain. A hacking cough, a eeverk
cold, or any throat or lung disease are
very troublesome; but all of these may be
quickly and permanently cured by Dr.
Bigelow'a Cure. Safe and pleasant for

A Ircncti Smuggler' Dogs.
Tho smuggler trams his dogs oue by one,
and always at night. lu the day time he
walks across the froutier, accompanied by
one of his pupils, and gnes to visit his accom
plice, in win oe house he leave the dog. It is
detained til: after dark, when it receives
sufficiently mmrt beating to make it glad to
scamper home to its master, who welcomes it
to an excel ent supper. This routine is re
peated sever il times, till the dog can find its
way home on the darkest night without hesi
tation. It is then promoted to carry a small
light pack containing articles of trifling
value, but bj degrees the weight is increased
till the dog is accustomed to carry many
pounds. Whi n each dog knows its duties thor
oughly it is taught to work in company with
others, the m st iuteiligent in each pack being
exoia;t from c-rrier service and taught to
act as scouts, ti ascertain the whereabouts of
possible foes, and to enable the main body to
avoid the flat ger of falling into ambush.
The method of training the customs dogs
is, of course, quite different. From their
earliest pupi yhood they are taught to play
hide and seek with pieces of tobacco and
small bags of coffee or rolis of lace. When C
or t mouths old, their education in these mat
ters is taken seriously in baud, and they are
tauht to sit quietly in ambush, never bark
ing, but merely giving a low growl or cock
ing their ears to attract the attention of their
master whenever they detect any unusual
sound. Shou d they "te guilty of harking,
they are, of course, punished, but a wise dog
t3 rewarded with lumps of sugar. After some
practice a well trained excise dog will scent
out even one solitary smuggler dog ut a dis
tance of 'J0 yards, aud he soon becomes
wonderfully expert iu tracking the law break
ers, human or canine, aud in giving notice of
their approacL. Blackwood's Magaziue.
