The Council's Decision was Well
Cypreaa Blocks Received With Hatls
ffaetia.If There 1, Oppiti,
Where It El lets-Let the o4 Work
If there is any opposition at all to cy
press blocks ai a material to be used in
paving Second avenue, it comes from a
few of our citizens who are not particu
larly opposed to cypress, any more than
are they favoruble to brick; but tbey are
of the same class who originated aad
framed the remonstrance against granite,
and whose opposition is not to material.
but to paving. The Anaua has. it is
happy to say, not encountered any of
these indivldut.18 as yet. for all property
holders with whom it bas conversed
and it has i pokes, on the subject to
many are biartily pleased with the
promptness an! spirit of the council's ac
tion. One cit'nien, and a heavy tax payer
at that, said th s morning:
"I think the council hag done its duty
well in this peving business, and it has
done it promptly. It first chose granite,
but discovering opposition to that, select
ed cypress. I am conscious of the fact
there was a strong prevailing senti
ment in favor f f brick, but I think the
council bas coisidered that brick, as a
paving material, is merely an experiment,
as yet, and thit as it in desirous that
whatever is to be done with Second
avenue, be done at once, the council very
sensibly adopti d material that it could
learn something more definite about,
feeling that for present purposes cypress
blocks would bo the best and the cheap
est and let brisk come after awhile on
some of the strt eta that are not so gen
erally traversed. Cypress is good and
we want it, and if any opposition
springs up, lot me tell you, young
man, it comes fro m taxpayers net op
posed, particularly, to cypress blocks
but who are aim ply anxious to get the
mayor to veto the present ordinance
which I do no think he wil do but to
delay action until a new council and new
mayor comes, when they hope
the paving ordinance will perish
entirely. For tais reason I should like to
see all opposition to the cypress choked
as fast as it comes up. The council has
done its duty pnmptly, considerately and
well. Let it be sustained. Let us pave
Second avenue with cypress blocks and
if there is to be any experiments with
brick, try it on Home othei thoroughfares
not so generally traversed."
The Abgos raises no opposition to
brick for paving purposes because it
knows nothing about it, but it would most
sincerely deprecite any opposition to the
ordinance relating to cypress blocks.
The council has twice endeavored to suit
the popular desire; this time it has suc
ceeded beyond s shadow of a doubt and
as the gentlemei whose opinion is given
above, says, those who are opposed to it
would be opposid to anything.
Davenport's Mnnlripal Election.
The Davenport municipal election
passed off quietly Saturday, though an
unusually heavy vote was polled. The
interest centered mainly on the contest
for clerk for which there was a three
cornered fight, v hich was brought about
in this way; Join McSteen, whom the
democrats bad reelected repeatedly for
eiebt Tears, was defeated for renomina
tion in the democratic city convention by
P. J. Htiggarty. McSteen thereupon an
nounced himself as an independent candk
date. J.L. Hetcrt was the republican
nominee and wait through the influence ef
McSteen's candidacy, which split the
democrat vote, enabled to pull
through by 237 plurality. Ernst Claus
sen, democrat, was reelected mayor for
the seventh time by 060 mnjority over
Oeo. W. Cable, republican. The demo
crats also elected Eliel Peck assessor and
John Eaufmann magistrate. The repub
licans elected tlree aldermen and the
democrats four. The council now stands
seven democrats and five republicans.
A recent tncrease in the salaries of
municipal officers was made an issue at
the polls, and the aldermanic candidates
for reelection who voted affirmatively on
the proposition were defeated at the
Hospital Alport for March.

A Petition Asking Frederick Bass
Boanr thins; Interesting as to Ancns
taaa College Stndents What the
A petition has been in circulation for
two days wh?ch is very liberally signed,
asking Mr. Frederick Hass to formally
contest the election of Win. McConochie
as mayor of Rock Island, and it is quite
likely that be will yield to the wishes
therein expressed. The ground of the
petition is the questiannble legality of
votes cast by Angustana college stu
dents, at the recent election, the purpose
being to settle the issue as to the
validity of such votes, not only as they
pertain to the recent election, but for all
In this connection a perusal of the cat
alogue of Augustana college and Theo
logical seminary for 1888 the last issued
reveals numerous interesting facts. It
shows that during that yeai 227 students
were registered, only four of whom reg
istered Rock Island as their home. Of
these none were in the theological de
partment, the only branch of the college
which it is claimed that students are
otherwise than transitory; three in the
collegiate department registered Rock
Island as their residence, as did one in
the preparatory four in all while the
others register from different cities
throughout the country, which are their
homes, for as such they themselves re
gard them, as their manner of registering
themselves on the college roll book plain
At the last election it is estimated that
forty students voted in the Seventh ward.
In the face of what has appeared before
in this article thirty-six of those votes
were at the least calculation illegal, and
the probabilities are that the recount will
show still more as belonging to the same
The question is not raised as to how
these students voted, nor are they ac
cused of intentionally voting illegally.
The idea is to, investigate and learn facts.
An Interesting- Day at the Xlnth
tttreet M. B. Church r. McCord's
Hermon in the Morning- and Itev.
Mr. ttne'o at Night.
Yesterday occurred the dedicatory
services of the remodeled and rebuilt
Ninth street M. B. church. The Anous
recently noted fully the extensive repairs
this comfortable little house of worship
bas undergone, making it practically a
new church. The usual morning ser
vices yesterday were dispensed with in
the First church, in order that its pastor
and people might go down and rejoice
with its siBter congregation in the lower
part of town. The consequence was
that there was an immense congregation
present. Rev. G. W. Gue, who has tak
en the church in his charge this year to
relieve it of the expense of a pastor, con.
ducted the services. The singing by the
church choir was one of the features of
the day's worship.
The sermon was preached by Rev. Dr.
McCord, of Dubuque, former pa9tor of
the First church, whose text was from I
Nevertheless, tbe foundation of God stand
eth sure, having the seal. 1 he Lord know
etn them that are II is. And. let every one
that knowetn the name of Christ depart from
The discourse was short but instruc
tive, and was devoted to what may
oome from good foun dations, especially
where tbey are built as this church was
built with God's approval and for His
cause upon earth.
After tbe sermon Mr. Gue read a state
ment of the coat of tbe church improve
ments, the amount being $2,000 of which
f 1,000 bad been paid, and be entered a
plea for tbe remaining $1,000, proposing
that the people respond in subscriptions
payable in three and six months; $500
of the amount was raised in the morning.
In the evening Rev. Q. W. Gue
preached from Luke, 16:2:
Give an account of thy stewardship, etc.
The sermon was intended more partic
ularly to the laboring classes, Mr. Gue
said. He spoke of the relations of capis
tal and labor. Eyery man bad a right to
bis own property as between man and
man, but there was a difference as . be
tween God and man: God owned it all,
and all men whether toiling with brain.
muscle or capital bad to give an account
of bis stewardship some day.
At the evening service $100 more was
raised toward defraying the cost of tbe
church improvements, making $000 of
tbe $1,000 due.
Officers Better and Schaab picked up
John Johnson and Emily Lindquist, of
Moline, on Moline avenue last night, both

arrested Geo. McLean for creating a dis

This morning Magistrate Bennett fined
tbe rebelling citizen $15 and costs and
aent him to tbe county jail.
Officer Meenan arrested John Nersoa
Saturday night on suspicion of bis being
