WHAT DOTY' DEMANDS.
Time to Act.
The Second Arme Pawing; Ordinance
aa4 Hew Far It 'hoald.be Uoarded.
Pretext the Cltj ' Intereaia.
One of tbe prime objects of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement association
when it was orgacized last fall was in
substance, to encourage the city's growth;
improve and enlarge its opportunities;
foster its present i ndustries and encour
age and provide for new ones and to ad
vance ine city s u.terests in every way
possible. In carry ing'out the objectsf
its organization, ths association has thus
far met with very gratifying success. It
has been the authoi of the special assess
ment ordinance, un ier the provisions of
which the city is to be greatly beautified
and improved this spring, and above all,
it has succeeded in getting the proposi
tion to pave Second avenue through the
council in the shape of an ordinance
authorizing the wort. But tbe associa
tion has met with un obstacle, one that
may appear in every community to the
detriment of every progressive interest
towit the kicker. It is this stumbling
block that the assoc ation ought now to
work unceasingly to put down. There is
a class of individual who make it a bus
iness to growl about everything ' that is
attempted in the why of enterprise and
progress. They would raise objection if
the city were to be paved throughout
with gold gratuitous y, and pray that the
material be taken up and something be
put in place in its stead, just so it was not
The duty of the Improvement associa
tion now is to call a meeting and appoint
a proper committee to see to it that the
paving ordinance is not jeopardized by
the influences of those, who, while pre- j
tending te be opposed to granite, are in an
indirect way attempting to kill the
entire ordinance. Tbe Akqus. us it
stated last night, while emphatically
favorable to granite, does not desire that
material if tbe majority of property
holders want something else. It is
anxious that the preference be obtained
at once, the proper material decided
upon, and substituted in tbe ordinance
for granite, but don t, for mercy sake,
permit any action to be taken that will
interfere with the curving out of the
general purposes of the ordinance to
pave this spring.
II ol mm In a Hnwtlrr.
C B. Holmes, president of the Daven
port & Rock Island Street Railway com
pany, is making it ruber warm for his
street railway rivalu in Indianapolis
The citizens there art taking a lively in
terest in the railroad fight, and the city
is making common cause for the time
being with tbe Holmes syndicate. An
investigation shows that the capital
stock of the Johns n company, Mr.
Holmes' opponents, hts never been paid
up; that its articles of incorporation have
neyer been filed with the recorder, and
that it is very doubtful if it is a company
at all. There is, in f net, nothing in ex
istence showing that any consideration
was ever paid for tbe (lock to its original
holders, nor is the method of its
transfer made clear. Tbe Identity
of the Dudley Cable Riad company and
the present Johnson 8 . reel Railway com
pany is not definitely established. The
resignation of its ofllci r is shown, bear
ing date March, 1888, and no new offi
cers were elected until last Saturday. In
the new company E. St. George Rog
ers holds one share and Johnson holds a
majority of tbe slock; but as far as has
been shown in cc urt nothing has ever
been paid for it, and it has value be
cause none of it was paid up. It is
claimed by the citizens generally that the
Holmes company has made many im
provements since buyilig the old com
pany out, and the impression is general
that Johnson is seeking to make some
thing out of nothing, and that he does
not intend to operate e ectric cars at all,
as it claimed when it s arted a line, a
week ago, in direct cocipetition with tbe
Holmes lines. In otbtr words, a game
of bluff has been attempted, that has
failed to work w ith Mi. Holmes.
C. A. Nybladb propones to push his
suit against the deacons of tbe Lutheran
church in Moline. Nvbladb intends to
take his case to the United States court
in Chicago. He has, it is said, retained
two Chicago lawyers to conduct his case.
Besides, he secured the services of tbe
Hon. Byrac P. Magnusn (better known
as "Muale Pete") of Galesburg. This
very egatous gentleman has spent some
time lately in Moline and vicinity, col
lecting evidence in behalf of Nybladb..
Mr. Magnuson has demanded of the sec
retary of the Lutheran church council a
certified copy of their records concerning
Nybladb, together with all other docu
ments pertaining to this case. He is
confident that Nybladb will make it hot
for tbe Moline (as well us the Galesburg)
There is a rumor sioat, which, al
though diligent efforts have failed to
trace to a reliable foundation, has some
thing of a savor of sensation about it.
It is that a brother cf tbe murderer,
Heil wagon, executed iiere just seven
years ago today, died i:i an Illinois city
lately, and before doing so, confessed the
murder of the woman, for which crime
Heilwagon paid the peialty. Heilwag
on'a son, whose wife wna the murdered
woman, it will be remembered, was sub
pected by many of belnf: tbe actual mur
derer, but bis whereabouts at present are
A Ceaaterfeif Delias.
A new counterfeit dollar made of braas
with a thin coating of si ver electro-plate
has made Its appearance. It is a very
good imitation and liable to deceive. It
rings much like the genuine cola only a
little sharper. Tbe itam and the figure
of Liberty look worn but the date
"1861" is sharply cut an i fails to carry

(Sweeney The Late cel. Hettmaa,
The funeral obsequies of Mrs. E. D.
Sweeney were held at the family home.
816 Twentieth street, at 10 o'clock this
morning. The house was crowded with
neighbors and friends of the beloved
lady and her family. Rev. G. W. Que
conducted the solemn ceremonies, Rev
P. A. Cool, of Peoria, delivering the
funeral discourse.which was one of glow'
ing tribute to the deceased and of sympa
thy and consolation to the bereaved
family. The choir of the First M. E.
church sang sweetly. ''Guide Thou Me"
and "Abide with Me." There were a
great many floral offerings, handsome and
appropriate in design. The pall bearers
were Messrs. Howard Wells, H. C. Whit
ridge, Wm. Blanchard, Henry Curtis, H,
D. Mack and E. E. Parmenter. A long line
of carriages followed the remains to
their last resting place in Cbippiannock
Tbe funeral of Frank Bradley occurred
this morning with services at St. Joseph's
Church, Rev. Father Thomas Mackin
officiating. The pull bearers were
Messrs. L. Peck, J. Lawar, Chas.
Schneider, Nat Hagan. Andrew Shields
and J. McMahon.
Teresa Ann Kinney, beloved daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. James Kinney, died at
the home of her parents on Sixth avenue
between Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets,
of consumption, at 7:45 this morning,
aged 10 years and 9 months. She was a
member of St. Joseph's convent and a
devout and loving child. Funeral from
St. Joseph's church Monday at 10 a. m.
The late Col. Hoffman, of Davenport,
was very well known by our early set
tlers, many of whom attended his funeral
at Grace cathedral, that city, this morn
ing. The deceased was a brother-in-law
of Mrs. M. C. Hoffman, of this
city, and one of Davenport's most highly
respected and best known citizens. Tbe
Tribune speaks of him in this manner:
An old-time citizen has left us, an
honorable, upright man in all his connec
tion with society and the church to which
he belonged, respected, and without a
stain on his character. Col. Henrv B .
Hoffman died yesterday morning at his
long-time borne in this city. He came
here in 1854, and was married in Boston
to the sister of Gen. Geo. B. Sargeant.of
th9 banking firm here of Cook & Sar
geant, and she suruives him. Col. Hoff
man, brother of Gen. Hoffman, who re
cently died at Rock Island, was the son
of Col. Hoffman, of the regular army.
He was at West Point for a term, and
with bis father afterwards at intervals,
and a quartermaster in tbe regular array.
He received his rank of "colonel"
from being appointed by Gov. Kirk
wood, colonel of an early Iowa reg
iment organized in the war, but ill
health made him resign before the regi
ment left for the field. But afterwards
he was active as a worker for tbe union
cause. He had important property in
terests in Davenport, but was so retiring
In disposition few people knew nim as
they did many others thrusting them
selves to the front. lie never entered
into politics, but was firm in his religious
convictions, and a communicant of tbe
Episcopal church. "Col. Hoffman had
been sick for months, a gradual failing of
physical and mental faculties. Born in
1805 he bad reached a good old age. It
was a life extended beyond the usual
bounds, and made upright and honora
ble while in his keeping.

The numerous friends of Mr. John
Looney, in the upper wards, are pushing
him for the nomination of collector on
tbe democratic ticket. The contest lies
between be and Mr. Frey, either of whom
would make a very acceptable candidate.
It is really quite amusing to observe
how far the Union ia goin&vout of IU
customary sleepy way to encourage the
democrats in renominating the present
mayor. Nothing would more please the
Union or the party whose sentiments it so
well voices in this instance than such i
course as it dictates.

What grudge have the republicans of
the Third ward against Mr. W. A. Guth
rie, that they should place him in a posi
tion to b3 severely drubbed by Dan
Corken? Mr. Guthrie is a nice man and
he should be utilized for some other pur

chance of an election?

disappointments in his eagerness for
office that Bro. Morgan did, he has a
rough road to travel and a long time yet
