AftT the new council bad been or
ganized last night, an hour was demoted
to the consideration of paving material
and, finally, adjournment was taken to
another date, when, it Is to be hoped,
the mutter will be disposed of. The re
port of the council's committee of inves
tigation, composed of Aldermen Negus
and Hampton and Surveyor Paddock
was first received. It is appended and
is wor hy of perusal by all property

biased in their opinion, will prob

To the Hon "Table Mayor and City Council of the
City of Kock Island:
The undersigned committee appointed
by you to investigate the subject of street
paving would report as follows:
Your committee visited the cities of
Peoria. Bloomington, Chicago, Kana9
City, Omaha, Council Blufls and Des
Moincti; in all of which cities we exam
ined lavements of various kinds and
dates of construction, from which we
select nnd describe below enough to give
your honorable body a fair specimen of
the different kinds and ages in each of
the ab ve cities.
Jefferson street, paved with white
cedar blocks, plank foundation, layed in
18?3, condition fair, slight depressions
attributable mostly to settling of founda
tion at points where planks joined; with
the repairs that will not cost to exceed
20 cents per yard, will last not less than
six years longer, making the life of this
pavement twelve years. A large traffic
on this street. Hamilton street, south of
Jefferson, paved with 2x4x8 brick on
sand foundation three inches, three
blocks, same specifications as Blooming
ton paved with the above; weat side of
street car tracks Ottawa brick; east side
of street Galesburg brick; laid in 1884
and 18S5; cost f 1.85 per yard; condition
fair, but edge of brick show wear. Ham
ilton, north of Jefferson, been down six
years; Is several kind9 of brick: Bardoff.
Galesburg and Ottawa; corners worn
somewhat and showing decided effect of
wear by water in the gutters, which are
Galesburg brick, and wear at points
where Worses stood. The Bardoff look
tiakey t.nd not good, the Ottawa looking
the beau Franklin street. 4x5x12. Ottas
wa brick, layed in 1887; gruyel foundas
tion, ore course set on edge in sand 2J
inches. There is considerable traffic on
this street. Some express themselves as
well pl.tased, but considered all streets
paved with brick as experiment. Number
of blocks laid seven; cost $1 80 per yard
Again c thers consider brick the best and
cheapen. Contract let for four miles of
brick tl U season. Capt. Hall, owner of
a street car line, has no faith in brick
laid in Peoria, except the Ottawa brick
on Prat klin street.
Foun 1 one block of brick west side of
court house that was laid in 1875, Bloom
ington brick. About $100 in all has
been Sient for repairs. Foundation
three and a half inches; cinders well
rolled; one and a half inches of sand;
lower course laid flat, upper laid on edge.
Condition fair; will probably soon have
to be relaid; brick 2x4x8 inches. Have
laid in til three and a half miles, and will
lay tbrej miles this season. Have paved
one sin et each year for the past eight
years. I'se Bloomington brick altogether;
have four brick factories of vitrified
brick. The intersection of East and
Grove street was layed in 1880, by cutting
down the macadam and surfacing with
sand, th 3n one course of brick on edge,
which seems to stand as well as any we
Caluitet avenue and Twenty-second
street, paved with cedar blocks, plank
foundation, in 1880, interstices well
tamped 'with coarse gravel; from two to
two and a half gallons of tar used to each
square yard. Found this section in good
condition, with no repairs; will last two
years in its present state. Calumet ave
nue, from Twenty-ninth to Thirty-first
street, piived in 1883 with cedar blocks,
plank foundation. Condition very good;
blocks in good order; some defects where
the foun lation had settled. Light traffic,
but lots c f it. Twentieth sixth street,cedar
blocks, (lank foundation; laid in 1883;
condition very good; will need no repairs
for two or three years; crevices between
the blocks filled with coarse gravel well
tamped; two and a half gallons of tar to
each squire yard. Twentyssecond street,
from LaSalle to Wentworth; fresh filled
before being paved; cedar blocks oa plauk
foundation, laid in 1879. Is net in very
good condition, while the blocks are rea
sonably good, considering ten years ser
vice with very heavy traffic; shows that
the principal fault for its present condi
tion lies in the foundation settling.
Eighteenth street, between Wabash and
Indiana avenues, paved in 1878, cedar
blocks cn plank foundation; condition
quite bacly worn; needs repairs; can be
repaved lit a cost not to exceed $1.10 per
yard; henvy traffic. Hoyne avenue.from
Harrison to Congress street; paved in
1879, cedar blocks on plank foundation;
needs some repairs, otherwise condition
not good; depressions mostly in the cedar
blocks, which were probably defective
when put in. Hoyue avenue, from
Congress to Madison streets, paved in
1878; ce lar blocks on plank foundation;
has been repaired in several large patches;
needs fuither repair in center of street.
Will last a few years; traffic light.
Grand avenue paved from Independ
ence street to Ninth street with cypress
blocks, concrete foundation, layed in
1887, slit htly uneven owing to careless
ness in le ying blocks, heavy traffic; 83 J
miles cetar pavement layed in the past
eight years, Fifth street from Broadway
to Grand avenue, cedar blocks, concrete
foundation, paved in 1882, no repairs
since it as put down, good for three
years without repairs. Third street from
Grand avenue to Wyandotte, paved with
cedar blocks in 1883, plank foundation,
condition very good, traffic very heavy.
Main strt et from Second to Thirteenth
street, psved with cedar blocks in 1884
on conc ete foundation, very heavy
traffic, condition very good. Delaware
from Secind to Ninth, cedar blocks on
concrete, down six years, no repairs, con
dition good, traffic very heavy; Delaware.
1883, cedar on six inches of macadam, in
good rept ir.two tarn piugs of coarse gravel,
then tar .wo gallons, then sand on top.
We have a sample from one of the cedar
blocks. Mr. M. a. Turatin, assistant
superintendent of streets, thinks they will
get cedar on concrete this year for $1.60
In Om iba the specifications of all wood
pavements call for six inches of concrete.
one inch of Band and aix inch blocks
joints will tamped twice with coarse
gravel, tl en one and one-half to two gal
lons of ti.r per square yard, the top area
sing of fine gravel. From Twentieth
street oi Farnum to Thirtieth street
paved with cedar blocks on concrete
foundation layed in 1888. The Gas
Company are taking up a portion sear
the s utter line to lay gas pipe and found
the concrete in excellent order, although
they only got about four inches of con
crete. About two-thirds of the cedar
was unfit to relay, showing that dead
wood had been substituted for live cedar.
The other one-third of the blocks that
were of live wood were in very good con
dition. The contract called for live cedar,
six inches of concrete, coarse gravel well
tamped, tar one and one-half gallons to
the square yard, light coating of floe
gravel well rolled with steam roller.
Found the surface gravel well imbedded
In the wood, thereby aiding its durability.
Leavenworth from Fourteenth to Thirty
seventh streets (twenty-three blocks) is
cypress blocks laid on six inches of con
crete with one and one-half gallons of
tar tamping in coarse gravel, laid July,
1881; is a very smooth, and in all re
spects, one of the finest looking streets
we saw. Jackson street is cypress
blocks, contract the same, bix blocks laid
in 1888, and seems the same as Leaven
worth street. Fifty fifth street, one
block of cypress on concrete, contract the
same, now laying; six men lay one thous
and yards in ten hours. North Sixteenth
street, cedar blocks, laid in 1886; street
car line laying track, found some very
poor blocks, but well layed with coarse
gravel between. North Sixteenth street
in parts is very good. In places this
street shows blocks that are in a very bad
condition, in fact this street Is very much
like Farnum, bat not quite bo bad. There
is very little signs of tar on the sides of
the blocks, and the tamping contained
rtoo much sand to let the tar go between
the blocks. At the corner of Sixteenth
and Jackson streets we found them lay
ing cypress, from which we got the sam
ple blocks that we have with us. San
ders street between Patrick and West,
cedar on concrete; two gallons of tar,
October, 1888. We saw a long line of
this street taken up to build street car
tracks and it showed the coarse gravel
that was used for tamping, allowing the
tar to go to the bottom of the blocks,
which is a very good feature. This is a
very fine street in all respects.
COUNCIL BLUFFS .
Willow avenue from Pearl to Seventh
streets, two blocks paved with brick;
foundation, fiye inches of cinders well
rolled and four inches of sand, layed in
1888. About fifteen miles of cedar pave
ment to date against granite and brick.
Broadway from the city to the bridge, a
distance of three and one-half miles, is
cedar blocks on plank layed in 1887, in
very good condition.
DBS MOINES, IOWA.
Cyress blocks on North Sixth street to
the city limits, about two miles; contract
let to pave with brick seven blocks; layed
in 1888; vitrified native brick are used,
the best rrarie used for top course; con
sider it a failure on account of the foun
dation, which is but six inches of saud
and a poor quality of brick. Walnut
street from Second to Ninth street, paved
with cedar on plank in 1881. Blocks
taken up by Gas Company proye to be
sound; over three miles layed in 1881;
no repairs the first eight years; condition
good except along trenches. Several
miles layed of cedar on plank in 1832,
1883 and 1884. School street to Ninth
street, north on Ninth street to city
limits, paved with cypress on plank in
1885; block crevices tamped with
coarse gravel; two and one-half gal
Ions of tar to the square yard:
no repairs in four years, condition good.
Charles Bennett, city engineer of Des
Moines, says the durability, comfort and
economy of cedar blocks pavement as
compared with stone or other material,
will last from 10 to 15 ye.ars depending
upon quality of material, manner of lays
ing, nature of soil and amount of traffic.
We will say that as to biick that our obser
vation is that a good brick layed on con
crete or some other firm foundation will
make a good and lasting pavement: our
perference based on what we saw is for
Blocmington, Ottawa or Galesburg in
the order as aboved named for uniformity
of size, toughness and general durability;
but our observation in Des Moines and
other places satisfies us that no brick
should be used unless it had been dem
onstrated by use that it has the requsite
qualities for a durable pavement.
At Bloomington, cost of brick pave
ment $1.G5 per yard, specifications called
for two and one half inches cinders, one
and one half inch of sand one, course of
brick laid flat, one inch of sand, one
course of brick laid on edge. We will
say as to cedar that the large cities seem
to have used cedar to a very much
greater extent than any other material.
Chicago, about 330 miles, Council Bluffs
about 23 miles, Des Moines 35
miles, Kansas City about 83 miles.
Omaha about 36 miles. And we
saw in the places we visited that if
layed on concrete or some other solid
foundation, and the blocks used were of
live wood, it made the most pleasant
pavement to drive upon of any and very
durable. As to the sanitary objections
we were unable to find any objectionable
odors from any that we examined, and
we were particularly fortunate in finding
it taken up in many places for the pur
pose of laying, water pipe, street car
tracks, &c, which enabled us to make
very extended examination. Peoria
being the only place that anyone claimed
any objections, to wit: on the score of
cost of cedar.
Cost of cedar in Omaha, 1888, $182
bids, 1889, $1.60 on six-inch of concrete.
Chicago cost of cedar in Chicago, $1.35
to 1.40 on macadam. We will say that
as to cypress brocks that our opinion is
that it 18 a very desirable wood, and al
though no city that we visited has used
it in such a shape as the sample as we
brought from Omaha, a sufficient length
of time to demonstrate its durability,
still we heard some very practical and
well informed men express unq ualified
faith in it as the coming pavement, for
various reasons, among which is its "uni
form quality" there being no danger of
getting any dead cypress.) Major Bal
comb, chairman of the board of public
works of Omaha, said that he thought
that (in the form as Shown by sample)
it was the coming pavement.
COST OF CYPRESS,
in Omaha, in 1888. 1.80 per vard on
six-inch of concrete; and for 1889, $1.60
bid, on six inches of concrete.
The committee were very freely fur
nished any information that they asked
by the city authorities of each city that
they visited. But we are under particu
lar obligation to City Engineer Whight-
man and Mr. Baldwin (editor of the
Journal) of Peoria, City Engineer Bell
and his assistant, of Bloomington, Mr.
George W. Deal, ex superintendent of
streets of Chicago, Mr. C. W. Pearson,
assistant city engineer of Kansas City,
Msior Balcomb, chairman of the board
of public works of Omaha, Mayor Rohror
and Alderman Lacy, of Council Bluffs
all of whom took particular pains to
show us any pavements in their respec
tive cities that would give us informa
tion on the subject.
We would recommend that the prop
erty owners in the district, to-wit: On
Second avenue, from Fourteenth street
to Twentieth street, inclusive, be given
until Monday, May 13, 1889, to sign a
petition to this council, staling the kind
of material they wish to haw 'used for
paving. At the end 6f such time then,
if said property owners, to an extent that
will represent a majority mt the front
feet in said district, do noC agree as to
what material they would wish, then this
council is to determine the kind of ma
terial to be used for such pavement. '
Oar reason for recommending the
above is that we find that it is the plan
adopted by Omaha, Kansas City and
other progressive cities, and that it
seems to work well with them.
All of which is respectfully submit
ted. C. W. Neocs.

H. G. Paddock,
After the reading of the report came
remarks from Capt. T. J. Robinson, up
on the citizens' brick inspection excur
sion, during which a great deal was said
in favor of brick, and then Mr. Phil
Mitchell read the report of the property
holders, who had made the tour of brick
inspection and which has been published
in full in these columns, and also read
the Guyer petition circulated yesterday
urging the council to adopt brick.
Aid. Schnell expressed his disapproval
of the petition . It came in his opinion'
as a slur upon the council and the ap
parent object of those designing and cir
culating it bad been to forestall the coun
cil in its action upon the report of its
own committee on paving investigation.
It appeared as if there was some fear as
to what the committee would report in
favor of and the aim seemed to be to
lead the council to disregard the report of
its own committee and to permit brick to
be forced upon it. The council had
shown its disposition to favor the prop
erty holders' preferences by first selecting
granite, then changing it to cypress, and
he would not be opposed to brick, but he
did not like the idea of a few brick men
running the council and the property
Alderman Negus looked upon the
petition as a gross insult to the commit
tee on investigation and the conncil.
The report of the committee on investi
gation, which did not favor anything,
in particular, but was complete and
thoroughly unprejudiced and unbiased,
should at least have fair consideration
by the council, upon whose authority it
was made, and the property holders
should be given an opportunity to read
it and decide for themselves, before
fore being asked or persuaded into sign
ing petition favoring any particular
material, and no petition should be con
sidered by the council until its own com
mittee's report had received due and re
spectful consideration. The attempt to
force upon the council an action in fat
vor of brick, at this stage, was an insult
Alderman Howard lifted up his voice
in favor of brick, and offered an excuse
for the Guyer petition the ground be
ing that the petitioners might have fears
that the council might act upon its own
committee's report, and adopt something
beside brick at this meeting.
Alderman Edwards stated that be was
at Galesburg last Friday, and that, to a
fair minded person, macadam would be
vastly preferable to the paving brick
used there. It was uneven, badly worn
and covered with brick-dust an actual
disgrace to an enterprising city. He
would extremely regret to see any such
material used in Rock Island.
Alderman Schroeder moved that the
property holders be given until next
Monday night to express their prefer
ences. The motion prevailed, and then,
upon motion of one of the enthusiastic
brick men present, the council ad
