Table of Houae Boon- ana Reve
nue. The ordinance prepared by the ordi
nance and waterworks committees of the
city council relative to water rates, and
which the council will probably pass up
on at its next meeting, proposes numer
ous important changes in the present
system of water tax. It first provides
that hereafter in all cases of making con
nections with street mains, a separate
connection shall be made for each resi
dence and for each division of a tene
ment house, excepting in cases where one
meter is used to measure all the water,
and in cases where, on petition of all the
parties interested, the city council may
find sufficient reason for making except
It further makes it the duty of all po
lice officers, at the time of relief each
day, to report to the superintendent of
waterworks all waste of water and all
other violations of this ordinance which
have come under their notice, and to give
such assistance in detecting such viola
tions as consistent with their other du
ties. It provides for numerous amendments
and reoommends a very fair average re
duction in rates to the small consumers,
but for railroads, breweries, bottling es
tablishments, livery stables, elevators in
stores, wholesale liquor stores, manufacto
ries, drug stores, steam laundries and all
other large consumers not specified, me
ter rates according to consumption The
charge for water to consumers, supplied
with meters, shall be not lei-s than $20
per annum and at the rate of fifty cents
per one thousand gallons to every con
sumer of 10,000 gallons per quarter;
forty five cents per thousand for
every consumer of 20,0110 gal
lons per quarter; twenty. five cents for
100,000; twenty cents for 200.000; fif
teen cents for 600,000; thirteen cents for
1.000,000; eleven cents Tor 2.000,000; ten
cents for 3,000,00); and eight and one
half cents per thousand for 6,000,000 gal
lons consumed in each quarter.

pursuant to adjournment, there being
present President Reimers. and directors

The committee on insurance reported
the placing of $10,000 on school building
No. 4. in the agency of J. M. Buford and
$2,000 in the agency of H. L. Schill.
W. 8. Knowlton was elected a member
to fill the vacancy occasioned by the re
signation of J. H. Yore, on the eighth bal
lot, the other names proposed being J.
W. Welch, C. J. Larkin and Sewall
Dodge. It seemed to be the general dis
position of the board to elect a democrat
as such were the politics of the retiring
director, but difficulty was experienced
in agreeing upon a man, until a comprom
ise waa effected on Mr. Knowlton.
The following bills were allowed:
J. M. Buford, f 120; H. L. Schill, 30.
The superintendent is to have full con
trol over all the employes, and of the
employment of new men in case of
vacancy. "He shall have full power to
discharge ail inefficient or insubordinate
employes and shall be held strictly le-
sponsible for all bis ads and for the j par chapel

Th- Kill for the Sctatary Improve
ment an It Panned the tecnate In the
Mondry Civil Bill Monster A:ll
President Hass, of the Rock' Island
Citizens' Improvement association, re
ceived today from Congressman Gest an
interesting letter accompanied by a copy
of the Congretnional Record, showing of
ficially what disposition was made in the
senate of the Rock Island viaduct clause
as attached to the sundry civil bill.
The amendment reads as follows:
For the construction of viaduct from
the south end of the wagon bridge be
tween Roi k Island and the city of Rock
Island, over the railroad tracks which ad
join the approach to said bridge. $35,-
000; provided, that this appropriation
shall not be available until the city of
Rock Island shall, by proper instrument.
have conveyed ti the united States'
title authority and . control ever
the premises to be UBed for the
construction and maintenance of
said viaduct, nor until all holders of
properly abutting the same shall have
executed release of all damages that
might acrue to them by the construction
and maintenance thereof, in such form
as the secretary of war may prescribe:
Provided further, that the work shall
not be commenced until the city of Rock
Island shall deposit in the treasury of
the United States the half of this
amount towards, reimbursing the United
States for this expenditure.
The bill would be all well enough and,
in fact, exceedingly satisfactory, but
for that last "Provided Further." That
is the sticking point. Congressman Gest
says in Lis letter that he realizes that,
and that Senator Allison, chairman of
the committee, did all in bis power to
get the entire appropriation by
the government, and the Iowa senator
suggested that the city of Davenport, the
railroad companies and the street osr
syndicate ought to "chip in" to make up
the half which is to be deposited by the
city of Rock Island.
The amended bill to which the viaduct
Is attached gives in addition to the ap
propriations for Rock Island arsenal here
tofore made and described: $15,000 for
completion of storehouse K; $10,000 for
general care, preservation and improve
ment, for building new roads, for care of
water power, for paiotiog and preserva
tion of permanent buildings, bridges.
