THE PAVING CONTRACT.
Atklninn A 01of Hesitate to Slsn for
Wtti 0r Proper Proteriloa The
The ten days have more than elapsed
Ince the city of Rock Island awarded the
contract of saving Second avenue to
Atkinson & Olof. of this city, but up to
non today the contractors had refused
10 sgn the agreement. The gentlemen
claim that while the contract binds them
very closely, it docs not sufficiently pro
tect them In case of litigation or other
emtrgtm-ies.' ' At a meeting of the mayor
and p&ving committee this morning, how
ever, a clause was inserted, pledging the
city to pay f )r the work as soon as com
pleted, ami this being satisfactory to At
kmson & Olof, it is more than probable
that the nit:er will be amicably settled
The ordinunce. as passed at the last
meeting of tbe city council, limits the
council to ti e use of either Galesburg or
Bloomingtoti brick. It will be remem
bered that he bid with the Bardolph
brick was the cheapest $1 60 per yard
but the council was not fully posted as
to its merits, and did not entertain that
company's proposition. Mr. J. E
Chandler, secretary of the Bardolph Fire
Clay Worls, arrived in the city this
moruiner. and is very anxious that the
council give his brick a trial. The Bar
dolph brick has given good satisfaction
wherever in use, and as it is cheaper than
the others, it would seem to be only
proper to nclude that company in the
list to be selected from.
Mr. Chandler comes armed with the
following endorsements of bis brick, the
first letter having been sent to this city
several days ago:
Qijincy, 111.. June 22. 1889: Mr. P
L. Mitchell Rock Island, 111: Dear Sir:
Mr. Chandler, of Macomb, requests me to
write you in relation to the Bardolph
brick made by his company.
In my letter to you of May 10, I gave
the experii nee of our street railway in
the use of brick paving, but did not say
that we hai used the Bardolph brick.
Our observation and experience haB
led us to r refer these and we have re
cently ordi-red all we expect to need this
year from that company. They con
tinue to give us entire satisfaction and
we think that you will approve them on
use. Yours truly. Lorenzo Bcll.

To whom it may concern :

to the eniire satisfaction of the public.
We believe for superiority and quality
there is nr better. We cheerfully recom
