The Council Receives a Variety of
Definite, ittloa be Taken avt the
Next: Heetlnc The Bids.
As was expected, the most important
feature of last night's council meeting,
and one too that was very promptly dis
posed of at far as that meeting was con
cerned, wai the reception of bids for the
paving of Second avenue with vitrified
brick, between Twentieth and Fourteenth
streets. Soven proposals were offered;
as many extractors were present from
different places, not any of them very far
from Rock Island and all had samples of
their material on hand; so that the city
had a pile , at the outset, large enough
to pave several feet as a sample.
The bids will be seen by reference to
the official record of the council proceed
ings in another part of this paper, and it
is gratifying to note that our pioneer
local conti acting firm of Atkinson &
Olof have made their bid one that the
committee to whom the entire matter was
referred, Cinnot help but view with
great consideration. The Argus is in
favor of patronizing and encouraging
local industries wherever possible,and the
home enterprise should not be overlooked
in this case, especially where the figures
are such as warrant it if nothing else, and
the guaran .ee as good as any.
There is no purpose, however, to in
Quence thu committee beyond its owu
best judgment of what is right in the
premises, nor are there any fears
but what it will do its du
ty well. But opportunity should
never be Irst to properly recognize an
established home industry. Meanwhile
there Is mush satisfaction in the knowl
edge of the fact that the paving is to be
done, and the property holders say the
sooner it is done the belter. Let it be
THE HUMANE SOCIETY.
A Branch Organized In Kork Inland
l.awt Wight Offirer F.lected-.-The
Quite & 1 trge number of citizens were
present at tiie meeting in the Rock Island
Citizens' la provement association rooms
at Harper's theatre building last evening
for the purpose of organizing a Rock
Island brat.ch of the Illinois Humane
Society. Mr. C. S. Hubbard, state
agent for the society, stated the object of
the meeting and proposed the selection of
a secretary. Mr. T. J. Medill, Jr., was
called upon to act temporarily, and Mr.
Hubbard thnn presented an outline of the
work accomplished by the society and
read a list of by-laws, which upon mo
tion of Mr. Wm. Jackson and Dr. Paul,
were adopt 3d. The most important of
these set forth that:
The object of the society shall be the
prevention of cruelty and the promotion
of humane public sentiment.
This society to be known as the "Rock
Island Brat ch of the Illinois Humane
Society," shU consist of life and brauch
members. A ly member may become a life
member by paying the sum of $25 and
a branch member by paying $2 or more.
Children may become members on such
terms as the board may decide.
The socie' y has authority to appoint
special agents and to compensate them
and to com ensate the secretary in any
manner neci ssary for the carrying out of
the objects of the branch, and the secre
tary shall make annual reports to the
parent society at Chicago.
Officers were "elected as follows:
President Wm. Jackson.
Vice-ores. dent H. Kingsbury.
Secretary Howard Wells.
Treasurer Frank Nadler.
Directors S. S. Keroble. H. D. Fol
som, J. N. Hardy, Dr. C. Truesdale and
Dr. W. A. Paul.
President Jackson in assuming the
chair, addressed the meeting briefly, ex
pressing his gratification that the citizens
bad taken such an interest in the Humane
society, and stated his belief that the
movement was one that would
have a wholesome effect. It was
one that had been needed in Ruck Island
and be felt confident that it would not
only be productive of the best results and
the accompl shment of the laudable aims
outlined in the by-laws, but that it
would meet with the endorsement and
cooperation of all our citizens.
The society will at once take steps to
carry out it purposes, and that it will
succeed is tt e hope of all who believe in
the suppression cf cruelty of whatsoever
kind, and th 3 promotion of the cause of
Ktither Poor Ntork.
The new pen cars recently received by
the Holmes nyndicate are not such beau
ties when it comes to practical usage,
as they apiiear when viewed from a dis
tance. They are not only without finish
but are so fiail in general' construction
and so clum! y ob the track that Supt.
Schnitger will doubtless have trouble in
using them i t all. Though the size of an
ordinary one horse car, it is as much as
two horses or mules.can do to pull them
and they quiver and shake like a thip in
a storm. M r. Holmes probably did not
see them before they were shipped or
they would not have come at all. The
company tht t made them should either
take them btck or put them in shape that
they can be used.

THE BLOWERS' BLOW OUT.
The Aannal Plenle eft be Rorit Island
VIms Vuken Yesterday.
Every year after the fires go out and
the glass cutters figure up the total out
put of the last blow, the employes of the
glass works from the boys employed as
snappers and roller carriers, and all other
employes blowers, gatherers, flatteners,
packers, cutters and others at work about
the works have made it a point to enjoy
a social gathering before departing for a
vacation. This year a picnic In point of
amusements, refreshments and general
good time was the best of the series
which has followed year after year since
the establishment of the factory in this
city. The committee on refreshments,
unlike stag picnics, did not provide one
loaf of bread and many cases of soda
water, but made a more than an equal
division, giving the solid refreshments
The first on the programme was a game
of ball between the blowers and snap
pers. The urchins were too much for the
larger ones. The score was 20 to 22
The defeated nine presented their oppo
nents with a bottle of soda water and a
ham sandwich. Running races formed
another amusement, the number of races
showing there was interest in this sport.
Only one race was on the original pro
gramme, but the first race was so excit
ing it caused other contests. Ferdinand
Dejeans and Louis Zeigler made a run of
125 yards for a purse of $10. Zeigler win
ning by three, feet. Brooks Terry and
John Dean were contestants in a running
race of 100 yards, Dean winning easily.
This kind of sport closed with a race be
tween Finney Doyle and P. Meyer. Mr.
Meyers was a good runner, but he had no
business with the old short stop of the
base ball club.
Quoit pitching was one of the principal
amusements. There were many games
during the day; to name all who took part
would take in the names of one half
the picnicers. Samuel Broomhall was
the winner of every game, and was only
defeated during a aeries of three games
for the championship by Tom Grant who
is noted for his skill by one point. The
friends of Mr. Broomhall claim that he
had been playing with every comer, and
was too tired to do himself justice in a
contest with one who was about his
equal in the game.
The center of interest was in the last
game of ball. At times the excitement
was at fever heat. This game was be
tween the men employes of the factory.
The kids were not in this game. Albert
Owens and Samuel Webb were se
lected captains of the respective nines.
To say there was fun would not tell the
story. The playing was good, as can be
seen by the score. Every man who made
a run was awarded with a bottle of soda
water. This acted as a stimulant for
the players to reach the home plate. The
Webb nine were the winners by a score
of 13 to 11.
The men look forward to an early fire
in the factory, and hope the picnic of
1890 will be as enjoyable as that of this
The refreshments, both drinkable and
eatable, were in abundance, and free to

One frequently wonders, says an ex
change, that street car drivers can keep
their tempers so well as they do and be
affable under the most exasperating cir
cumstances.4 A man or woman who is
ordinarily reasonable enough becomes a
crank the moment they hail a street car,
and remain so until they have left it be
hind them. Will some gentleman learned
in such matters come forward and tell
why this is? Why cannot a man be a
man and a woman a woman on the street
car as well as en the pavement.
These questions would seem to espe
cially present themselves when people
are waiting for a car and are admonished
by the driver that they must go to the
other crossing, and when a look of scorn
and resentment is cast upon the driver
who is trying to do his duty in obeying
the company's roles.

The Mvndleal Paper.
The fourth member of the Angustana
board was chosen in the Swedish Luth
eran Synod late yesterday afternoon. He
is "Rev. Haterius, of Galesburg. The
greater part of the afternoon, as well as a
large portion ' of the session this morn
ing, was devoted to the discussion of the
official synodical paper, Augustanmi. It
was strongly urged to enlarge the size and
type very materially, but it was finally
decided to simply increase the size to
eight pages, and to fix the price at Si. 50
The matter of fixing upon the editor
occupied considerable time. Dr. Has
selquist has been editor-in-chief ever
tince the paper was founded, but
he declined to serve further in this re
sponsible position, though he is willing
to remain on the staff as associate edi
tor, and to contribute to the paper.
Rev. Norelius, of California, was finally
chosen editor, and Dr. A. R. Cervine was
elected associate editor, at a salary of
$500 a year.
Further examination and discussion
of the financial report of Augustana
college fixed the actual indebtedness of
that Institution at from $30,000 to $40,
of the twenlysthree candidates for the
ministry took place at.the Swedish Luth
eran church, Moline, Sunday afternoon.
The church was beautifully decorated.
On the altar was placed a handsomely
made cross of white flowers. At half
past one, says the Moline Republican,
crowds of people were gathered about the
church waiting for the doors to be
opened. At 3 o'clock sharp the candi
dates came marching in. The Rev. Prof.
Hasselquist, D. D., delivered the ordina
tion sermon inSwedish and Prof. R. F,
Weidner, D. D., in English. Dr. Hassel
quist spoke of the necessity of faith.. He
exhorted the candidates to preach the
gospel, thereby! forgetting their own per
sonality. At last be said: "May you
always make the prayer of the malefactor
your own; 'Lord think of met' " After
the sermon by Dr. Hasselquist, the choir
sang a song appropriate to the occasion.
Then the secretary of the synod an
nounced the names of the different candi
dates and the congregations to which
they were called. The president of the
synod, assisted by forty-two of the older
ministers of the synod, performed the
