Editor A rocs:
Rock Island. March 22. The action
of the city council on Monday evening
ought to furnish thought for serious re
flection to our taxpayers. They arrogate
to themselves the right to order any and
all street improvements at the expense or
the abutting property holders without
consulting them about the kind or cost of
the material to be used. Mr. B. D. Bu
ford, in a communication to the Union oa
Tuesday, but voices the opinion of very
many of the tax payers of Second ave
nue as well as of other portions of the city.
I think our city fathers are putting
on airs trying to ape and follow the
lead of cities of ten times the population
are trying to get up a boom by making
Ihe fax payers spend a large amount of
money in street improvement. One of
these boomers outside of the city coun
cil, said to me not long since, "Pave
Fifth avenue, and property will advance
at once fifty per cent on that street."
This may be so, but I fail to see it in
that light. I think the voters ought to
remember these wise aldermen who arro
gate to themselves all the wisdom there
is going, and try and put in men who
will pay a little heed to their constitu
ents' wishes. S. W. McMabter.
The Argus thinks Mr. McMaster is,
in a very great sense too severe in his
manner of addressing the city council.
and that the position he takes is ills
founded. With all due respect to his
opinion, he does the aldermen a great
injustice; for they have but acted, in the
least degree, in a spirit of presumption,
but have simply followed out the wishes
rf the tax payers as they (the aldermen)
believed them to be. The A Rous has
been inclined to favor granite, not only
because it believes k to be the most
economical, from the fact that it is the
most substantial and enduring, but be
cause it baa believed such to be the will of
the tax payers. From what could be
learned at the meetings of the prop
erty holders, held at the rooms of the
Citizens' Improvement association, the
Argus gathered the opinion that there
was a decided preference for granite, and
that impression has not yet been re
moved. The aldermen, doubtless, had
the same ideas, and they were so guided
in their action.
During the past few days a petition
has been in circulation urging the mayor
to veto the ordinance ordering grnnite
for the pavement of Second avenue, ami
those who are at the bottom of and l
bind it have succeeded in the ill-conceived
interests of self, and entirel y for
getful of the best good of the city, pur
suaded a number of property holders who
are in favor of paving to put their names
to the petition. The Annas deprecates
the action of the property holders who
have taken such a stand, for it believes
that the instigators in the movement are
not only opposed to granite, but any
other paving material, and would have
raised the same hue and cry if brica,
cedar blocks or asphaltum had been
selected. It believes their object is to
kill the pavement ordinance, not partic
ularly the material, and that for this
reason many who have signed the peti
tion have been deceived. The ordinance
designating granite was framed and in
troduced by Aid. Negus, one of the most
extensive property holders in the district
affected, ai.d who while representing his
own views and those as be thought of
the majority of property owners, also
acted in the way that promised the most
satisfactory results to his own coustitu
ents and to the entire city. Mr. Negus
is to be praised for his efforts rather than
The Argus is in favor of paving Sec
ond avenue and it is in favor of granite
if it can be put down at a maximum of
$3 per tquare yard, as it believes it can.
Certainly there is nothing that can be
used that will be more permanent and
more advantageous from a sanitary
standpoint. The idea of ex-Mayor Mur
dock, however, is one that the Argus
would gladly lend encouragement to. It
is to pave between the street car tracks
and a foot on either side with
granite, and the remainder with
Cedar blocks. By this plan the street
car company would be obliged to bear
the burden of the expensive material, and
would doubtless be glad to do so as the
concentration of traffic between the rails
makes it desirable that a substantial ma
terial be used. The objection raised
to granite under the pretence of noise, is
rather flimsy, and those who sustain such
a theory were not born to live in a city.
They should move out into Kansas or
some other place where the noise of busi
ness activity will not disturb them. Mr.
Negus, who owns a hotel, and Mr.
Lowrey. who manages one the two
largest hotels in western Illinois are
both favorable to granite. It is very
much easier to overcome a dislike to the
clatter of horses hoofs than it is to sub
due a prejudice against popular improve
This morning a petition was circulated
among property holders and generously
endorsed, receiving the written approval
of many who bad signed the other peti
tion, and asking that the opinion of the
majority of property holders be obtained
and If the sentiment be for cedar blocks
or brick, to substitute it for granite in the
ordinance, but that the ordinance itself
should be permitted to stand.
The present mayor's propensities for
opposing popular will are so pronounced
that the petition first alluded to was
scarcely necessary to obtain his veto to
the paving ordinance. The Argus trusts
that the aldermen will have the backbone
to stand by their ordinance and to change
the nature of the material only when
they are satisfied that the majority of the
property holders desire it. At any rate,
let us pave and let the work commence
without unnecessary delay. Rock Isl
and s opportunity to progress has come;
let it not be retarded and lost.

Washixoton City, March 22. R. C.
Kerens, of St. Lt uia, one of Mr. Blaine's
closest friends, ai -rived yesterday morning
and will be here several days. He called on
Mr. Blaise in tbo morning, but as it was
diplomatic day at the state department he
had no opportunity for more than a word or
two with the secretary. In the evening Rus
sell Harrison callel on Mr. Kerens and bad a
long talk with hit a. Mr. Kerens pleads ig
norance on the suliject of appointments. He
said last evening hat he would not be sur
prised to see the English mission go west, and
if it did he suggested that Illinois might be
recognized. Mr. Kerens says he has only
one recommendation to make in reference to
the English mission, and that is that a "real
American" be appointed.
There is a rumor thut the president pro
posed to the Illinois Mnators to send Judge
Gresbam to London, provided they asked the
place for him, and, considering the fact that
they were for Gresbam for president, ttaej
could hardly refuse to indorse him for the
EuglisU mission. If this be true, it was a
delightful bit of sarcasm on the part of the
president. The Illinois senators are not los
ing any sleep over foreign appointments. A
foreign apointnic nt exiles a man and is gen
erally fatal to hit future as a potent factor
in politics. It is i ot at all certain that Judge
Qreshaw would, onsent to go abroad, how
ever willing the president might bo to
send him, and it is not certain
that the Illinois senators would sacrifice
everybody and everything else for Judge
Gresham. Had Judge Gresham been nom
inated and elected president they would have
been on top. He 'vas not. The inference is
obvious. It is sta ed, but not with author
ity, that should -here be a vacancy on the
supreme bench Ju lge Gresham would be in
vited to take a step higher ' . his distin
guished judicial cereer. It is generally con
ceded that Judge Oresharn would make an
able, accomplish 1 and dignified diplomat to
whom could safely be trusted the questions
of international importance now pending be
tween tbo United States and Great Britain.

who wants to be ublic printer. Mr. New
man sH'ke very of mostly in Payne's behalf,
and when he had concluded, the president is
quoted as sayiinc tliat under no circumstance
would he appoint a New York man to the
covetd oflW; the favored individual would
come from tuo weit. Mr. Newman said he
hoped the appointee would be a good union
man, and to thit the president responded
with an assurance that be would be a good,
honest, compotent man. The office was next
in importance to a cabinet position, and only
a fit man would be appointed to run it
The nominations yesterday were of only
local interest, consisting of territorial officers
and postmasters. They were as follows:
Miles C. Moore, of Walla Walla, governor f
Washington territory; Oliver C. White, of
Dayton, secretary of Washington territory;
Henry C. Blane, t be chief justice of the su

years, of large wealth and liberal education.
He is engaged in hi nking, farming and min

ritory, he having practiced bis profession at
Virginia City for the past twenty-five years.

In response to this invitation John Q.
Thompson, of The Washington Chronicle,
and three sympattizers gathered together.
No formal action v as taken. From all indi
cations their influence, it is to be believed,
will be "powerful lacking" when the senate
takes up Mr. New's nomination.
The nomination o Lewis Wolflsy to be the
governor of Arizona is still pending before
committee on territories. Senator Piatt,
chairman, said yesterday: "We are waiting
to hear and read all that may be offered for
and against Gen. Wolfley. When that is
done we shall consi der it all and give a judi
cial decision. We couldn't do leas than that,
and any man is enti Jed to it." The charges,
it is said, are of a very serious nature, but
the general belief is that they cannot be sus
tained, and that Gi n. Wolfley's nomination
will receive a favorable report.
Since the 4th of March the president's mail
has been very heavy, averaging from 000 to
700 letters, and on some days running as high
as 1,000 letters. President Cleveland's letters
rarely exceeded 901 a day. Many of the
communications set it to President Harrison
are intended for o; her persona, several of
whom are utterly unknown to him, the cor
respondents probably thinking that letters
addressed to the can of the president will un
doubtedly reach their destination.
Mr. Washburn, th newly appoiuted min
ister to Switzerland, took the oath of office
at the department of state yesterday, and re

is known us the commuted provision of the
homestead law, shall be qualified to make a
homestead entry npon said lands. The rights
of honorably discharged Union soldier and

described in sections 2,304 and 3,305 of the
revised statutes are not abridged. Each en
try shall be in square form as nearly aa prac

enter more that one quarter section.
The clause which is of ominous import to
the "boomers" who have gone upon the land
provides that until said lands are open to set
tlement by proclamation of the president no
fPreon shall be permitted to enter upon and
this provision shall ever be permitted to en

right thereto. The secretary of the interior
may, after said proclamation and not before,
permit entry of said lands for town sites, un
der sections 2,887 and 2,338 of the statutes,
but no such entry shall embrace more than
one half section of land.
All of these provisions are to apply to the
disposal of the lands aoquired from the Mus

president is also authorized to appoint a com

Montreal, March 22. A' dispatch from

American schooner W. H. Foye at Grand
Manan: "On Tuesday evening the Ameri
can fishing schooner W. H. Foye, of Glouoes
ster, while crossing the Bay of Fundy on her
way home from a cruise to the banks, ran
short of water and put into Grand Manan to
obtain a supply. Some of the fishermen of
the village assisted the crew of the Foye in
obtaining the water, and one of them want
ing to obtain a dory they sold it to him at a
reasonable price as a matter of cour
tesy. This came to the ears of
the local agent of customs at the port, who
at once seized the schooner on the grounds
that the captain had been guily of a willful
infraction of the customs act by landing
dory without reporting, and also for selling
lt without paying duty on the same. The
captain objected to this summary proceeding
and ridiculous reading of the law, and was
getting ready to sail when a prize crew was
put on board and a forcible seizure made.
