THE COUNCIL COMMITTEE.
The Tour of Pavement Investiga
Rtarm of tke Aldermante Delegatlea
What Whejrtkaw la the Dlffereat
The council committee, composed of
Aids. Hampton and Negus and Surveyor
Paddock, au horlzed to inspect the prac
tical usages of tbe various materials for
paving purposes, which loft Rock Island
ons week ag returned this morning.hav
ing visited in the order named, the cities
Peoria, Blocmington, Chicago. Kansas
City, Omaha, Council Bluffs and Des
Moines. Th i committee made its inves
tigations thoroughly and searchingly.and
brings with it samples of vitrified brick
used in Des Hoi as. of cedar blocks used
in Kansas City and ef cypress blocks
used in Omaha, all of which are at the
Rock Island house, where property holds
era interested are invited to call and in
spect. Among the samples is a piece of
cedar block that had been down seven
years and wh ch is in as good condition
apparently, as ever. The committee has
not yet p reps red its recommendations or
decided upon them and will probably not
do so until its report is made for the
council. An Abous representative met
the committee upon its arrival and made
inquiry as to what observations had been
"We saw in Peoria." t.aid Aid. Negus,
"eleven blocki of brick, the material of
seven of which was manufactured at Ot
tawa. This vas on Franklin street, and
it made a very nice street. It bad been
down two years. As a rule the Peoria
people favor brick."
"At Bloomington there are four man
ufactories of vitrified brick. They have
no pavement there but brick; of course
they patroniz) home industry. They
have three niles and-a-half of such
pavement alretdy laid and have let con
tracts for three miles more of brick pave
ment this year. The pavement has.with
tbe exception of one block, been down
but a few yean; the excepted block is on
the west side cf the court house, which
was put down fourteen years ago as an
experiment. The repairs on that one
block in fourteen years have not exceeded
$100. In Chicago, where we expected to
find some brick pavement, we were una
ble to discover any. There has been
brick laid there on street intersections
gratis, but taken up, as not suitable and
worn out. Th consequence is that there
is not a foot of brick pavement in Chica
go now, that we could find. We saw,
however, 321 miles of cedar blocks 43
miles of other pavement, including gran
ite, asphalt, etc.. Cedar is the favorite
there, as they have no cypress."
"We spent two days in Chicago and
one in each of the preceding towns.
Our next place of inspection was Kansas
City. There is no brick there, but the
city has S3 miles of cedar, and this year's
contracts are all for cedar. There are sev
eral miles of granite, but wood is the
favorite. Omaha has no brick, but
86 miles of cedar, seven miles of
cypress and about seven miles of granite.
On some of the streets the car tracks are
paved with Sioux Falls granite, and the
sides with cypress or cedar. Superinten
dent of Public Works Balcombe, says he
thinks cypress it superior to cedar, but it
has not been do vn long enough to afford
a complete test. From his experience in
the south he in very much in favor of
cypress, but doei not feel like endorsing
it too much before he sees the effect of
northern climates. Omaha also has sev
eral miles of asp Halt. In Council Bluffs,
which we also visited on our way, we
found cedar bloc is tbe pavement, though
some Sioux Falls granite is used. The
city has 23 miles of cedar."
"Des Moines has 33 miles of cedar
block all in good shape, five miles
of cypress in excellent condition, three
miles of granite, two miles of asphalt una
and seven bloc is of brick, a material
they are manufacturing there and which
I consider wirthless, tbe mater
ial being so pcor that I could run
my pencil throng i it most anywhere."
Mayor Warner, of Peoria, informed tbe
committee that w ben be first inaugurated
a system of street paving by special as
sessment there v-as a terrific howl and
threaU of banishing him from the city,
etc. Nevertheless he went ahead and
forced tbe paving, and now everbody is
tickled and Mr. Warner can be elected as
often as he want) to. His firmness and
persistency in the matter of street paving
has suade him ot e of the most popular
men in Peoria.

Tbe success of the Adams Wall Paper
company, whose place of business is los
cated ain Dimick'j block on Twentieth
street, is perhaps unprecedented in the
history of new enterprises in this city. A
few of tbe reason i of its success is that
it always keeps in stock tbe latest
styles, employ none but first class paper
hangers, sells goo Is at tbe lowest prices,
polite attention to tbe wants of cus
tomers, make no misrepresentations and
a thorough knowledge of the paper bus
iness, all combined make it a strong
competitor. Prominent among the
many residences tiat have been deco
rated inside this saason by this firm are
those of Mrs. B. Harper, H. C. Whit-

McKown on "Whose Fault is it if Schol
ars Drop OutT" The influences be cited
were fault in grading, failure to be socia
ble, failure to know the word, too much
slop and not enough strong meat, prom
inence of caste, undue prominence given
to the letter instead or to the spirit of the
lesson, a mistaken idea of position, fail
ure to do personal work. Others men
tioned Sabbath desecration, Sunday

and Sunday dinners as reasons why so
many of the older scholars are lost. Mrs.

"Temperance How Shall it be Taught?"
Resolutions were adopted expressing
the gratitude of the convention for the
hospitable entertainment by the people of
Moline.and the convention adjourned.

hem, an English-speaking Swede of

courage and endurance to the utmost.

were filled with such a feeling of joy and
thanksgiving as they had never known in
