City Cornell. Hoom, Rock Island,
April 15. The council met in regular
semi-monthly aegfiion at 8 p.m., Mayor
Blinding presiding, and nil ibe aldermen
present. The minutes of the last regular
and adjourned meetings were read and
approved. The maym read a message
latiDfi the reasons why be had not
promptly signed the Second avenue pav
ing ordinance, thereby giving the council
an opportunity for reconsideration:
Gkntlemen of thk Citt Council:
While my convictions upon the subject
of paving streets have not inclined me to
think that paving is at present an urgent
necessity, and bare led me to believe that
other public improvements in the im
mediate future are more imperative and
would be productive of larger benefits,
yet in deference to to the judgment of
the council and the known wishes of a
large number of property holders the pets
onal views of the mayor have not been
urged upon your honorable body to the
hindrance or delay of action upon your
part. As heretofore expressed in a for
mer communication, if paving of streets
streets was to be undertaken at all at the
present time, it was my deliberate judg
ment that, all things considered, cypress
whs the best material for the purpose.
Tba council having seen fit and proper to
pass an ordinance at its last meeting to
pave Second avenue between Fourteenth
and Twentieth streets and to provide that
it shall be done with cypress blocks, the
mayor fully concurs in the choice of ma
terial to be used. This being the case it
is proper and desirable that you should
be informed why the ordinance has not
promptly received the mayor s official ap
proval. Since the passage of the ordinance
there has been a meeting held by a large
number of the property holders most
directly concerned in the measure, at
which resolutions were adopted express
ing a desire that your honorable body
would delay further action until a com
mittee appointed by them could be heard
on the subject, and requesting that
i under investigation in regard to ma
terial might be made before the ordinance
became finally fixed and concluded. The
only way in which the mayor could fur
ther the wishes of the property holders,
as the case now stands, was to refrain
from signing the ordinance and thu9 leave
it in the power of the council at "this
present meeting to reconsider its vote.
should it be deemed wUe and expedient
on your part to thus exercise the pnvi
lege. Should you fail to reconsider at
this meeting, the time for reconsideration
will have passed as well as the time
limited by law in which the mayor could
either approve or disapprove, and by the
terms of the statnte it would be held to
be approved and go into effect.
Tour further action thereafter could
only be to wholly repeal the ordinance or
to pass another amendatory thereof.
From a respectful regard to the ex
pressed wishes of property holders, and
to avoid as far as may be any unneces
sary delay, the mayor has refrained from
exercising his statutory right, and in
vokes the deliberate judgment of the
council as te whether liiey deem it called
for and expedient to take further action,
or allow the ordinance to stand and go
into effect with its present provisions.
The matter now rests wholly in the judg
ment and decision of your honorable
body. V. M. Blandino, Mayor.
On motion of Alderman Williamson
the rules were suspended and a commit
tee of gentlemen representing the prop
erty holders of Second avenue, was in

J. Robinson then addressed the council,
presenting the resolutions of the proper
ty holders' meeting, and altto a petition
of about half the property holders in be
half of a brick pavement. Mr. William
Jackson followed, explaining the in
quiriea made and the recommendations

from diCerent cities on the subject.

Whlcb America Wants vnd Is Searching
For TIi Villuge of CuMlri.
We have no wish to deprive the Hellenic king
dom of a good bargain, or the American repub
lic of as many statues, and temples, and bronzes
and coins as it can discover, ami it may be
that, by the purchase and removal of the lit
tle village of Castri, the way tnight be pre
pared for discoveries more extenive and val
uable than any which have us yet attended
modern explorers at Delphi. l!ut the villuge
is a small and insignificant one, and stands
on a narrow strip of ground lietween what
are called the ruins of Delphi and the point
at which the spurs of I'urnurMits descend
pretty sheer to tha spot whence still butibles
whut is called the f'ustaliuu fountain.
H-nce the area to be excavated, if we sup
pose the villagers of Castri to le expropri
ated fur the purpose, is uot very extensive.
There is a perpetual glamour ultout tlio
very name of Greece, and uu added spell
round that of Delphi, which ill make up for
mauy things the traveler might erjiwt to
find and will not. For instance, he will find
scrub and rank grass insteud of wood and
trees, and nowhere, save at the Custaliun
fountain, or where the riesirus flows, will
And water. Greece is, na it wiis, a somewhat
waterless laud. Nor are the hills very Btrik
iug in outline; and the twin peaks of Parnas
sus are here too nigh to do themselves jus
tice. But the gulf of Corinth lies like a sil
ver lake below; and, with the help of an en
thusiastic imagination, the wayfarer may
work himself into the feeling that his feet are
carrying him over sacred ground. When he
reaches Delphi, he will find as a recent visitor
Fallen tablet, prostrate column.
Solitude and silence soleniu.
The matrons and maidens of Castri will
probably be washing the clothes of their hus
bands and brothers in the fount of Costal la,
with their turtles well tucked up above their
knees. Fur the rest, there is some water
cress, a few hovels and a Greek monastery
and church of lUlputian dimensions, inhab
ited and cared for by a single monk.
Are these present features to disappear, on
the chance of our American brothers finding
relics of the palmy days of Greece? To re
move the little squalid village of Castri
would be a trifling undertaking for a com
munity that has cleared the western back
woods, and constructed Chicago out of noth
ing. Nor are they to be deterred by the leg
ends that still linger round the place.
Originally, it will be remomlwred, the ora
cle was delivered through the mouth of a
priestess of tender years, sitting on the sacred
tripod. Iatcr, the priestess had to be SO
years of ago. America, as the youngest of
the civilized continents, will perhaps reverse
the arrangement, and plead its youth in order
to ingratiate itself with the lord of the twang
ing bow. As for the Greek monk and his
semi-subterranean chapel, its curious Icons
and frescoes of saints and martyrs, the ex
plorer from New York would soon make
short work of these. Hard by thorn stands a
splendid laurel or bay tree; and this might be
turned to account by the purcliasers. Indeed,
might they not get all their money back,
quite independently of nuy classical trou
vailles, by selling laurel wreaths from it to
all the "distinguished" citizens of tho repub
lic, of whom, as everybody knows, there is
such a prodigious quantity What remained
might be disponed of in the mother country,
where likewise "eminent'' personages have a
tendency to increase at a marvelous rate.
Take it altogether, the scheme seems a fitting
and an opportune one. The analogy between
the republics of Greece and the Americun
republic is not, at first sight, obvious; but,
with a little perseverance and good will, wo
feel sure it might be mode out. There may
be some who will feel a lingering compastuou
for poor Apollo; while others, less tolerant,
will be disposed to wish that he still could
deal out punishment from his avenging
quiver. London Telegraph.

"There are very few smokers who will hesi
tate to ask an utter stranger for a match, and
men who might pass each other on the street
every day for weeks without even a nod of
recognition will exchange 'lights' in a smok

spoke a young man to a group of friends the
"But," he continued, "I met a man yester
day on the cars who was an exception to the
rule. I was passing through the smoker with
a cigar ail ready to light, and felt in my
pocket for a match. He gave me a cold stare
and paid no attention to my request. "

A Life Hade Miserable
By dyspepsia is scarcely worth the liv
ing. A capricious appetite, heartburn,
puxxling nervous symptoms, increased
action of the heart after eating, sinking
in the abdomen between meals, and
flatulence after, are among the scccessive
indicia of Ibis harrassing complaint. Two
things only are needful for its rsmoval.
A resort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
and persistence in its use. These reme
dial measures being adopted, a cure is
certain. Taken immediately before or
after meals, this great stomachic pro
motes secretion of the gastric juice, the
natural solvent of the food. The nervous
and bilious symptoms consequent upon
chronic1 indigestion disappear, as the
complaint "gradually yields to the cor
rective and invigorating Influence of the
Hitlers. Appetite returns, sleep becomes
more refreshing, and as a consequence.
tne body is efficiently nourished, muscu
lar power increases, and the mind grows
anguine. Use the Bitters for chills and
fever, and rheumatism.

Lovdos April 15. Vanity Fair assert
that Emr ror Francis Joseph of Austria has
only been prevented from, abdicating the
throne by she command of the pope that he
shall not d ) so. When the emperor indicated
his intenti n of abdicating Counts Halnoky
and von T laffe tried in vain to dissuade him
from his i urpoae. Finding their master ob
durate thty laid the case before his holiness,
who ins tat tly wrote the emperor his desire
that the la ;ter should dismiss the idea from
his mind. The letter had the desired effect,
but the emperor received it with languid in
difference, entirely at variance with his
former bt bit of treating communications
from the Vatican. Meanwhile, it is said, in
trigues multiply at the Austrian court, and
are entirely unseen, or, if so, totally ignored
by the emj eror. The empress has had many
delusions since the death of Crown Prince
Rudolph, f nd her physicians declare that un

Compared to them are dull and gray.

"Twas hard to choose between the two.
The monarch knew not what to do.
The third is standing calmly there ;
Now, with a half triumphant air
And smile of confidence and hope,
He shows a cake of Ivory Soap,
So peerless in its purity.
That dirt, alarmed, takes wings to fly.

Grasps it, and cries in wild delight :
"No more confusion or dismay.
No more cold meals on washing clay.
Subjects ! my youngest son obey,
The Ivory Soap has won the day."
