MATTERS CF MOMENT.
Things that Conct rn an Enterpris
Maaae rthe laaperi mmt IMeaaarea that
Cane t' Before the Monday Xtght
Several matters rere acted upon by
the city council at ita londay night
meeting, the full ami vital importance of
which to the city the official record does
not fully indicate. Not the least of
these were the ordinances on the paving
and curbing of Twettielh and Eighteenth
streets from First to Fourth avenues and
both of which' wert referred to the street
and alley committee, whose names were
inaerted as commisrionera. These are
important measures, and it is hoped will
be reported favorahl upon and adopted.
The spirit of the times in Rock Island
says "pave"; pave in all directions where
ft can be possibly ei -ended. To be sure
there are those who i ry cut "stop" and
attempt to stay the progressive move
ment. They are as delpless and as re
sistless in their endenvors as a feather in
a whirlpool. The spirit of enterprise and
public spirit is at the back of the paving
project and is pushing it on.
The action of the council in rejecting
all bids for the improvement of Union
square by filling was a great disappoints
ment to those who htve at heart a pride
in the city's appeara ices, and it is to be
truly hoped that tl e purpose of the
municipal body la not to abandon tbis
important and necessary. project.
The application of the Moliue company
for a mbt of way into Hock Island for
an electric railway biouht out some In
teresting revelations In asking for the
petition, the original idea of seeking to
run over the Holmts trac ks was aban
doned and the projec tors simply prayed
for rights down Elm i.treet to Eigbth-and
a-half-avenue and no further at this
meeting, and Messrs. Guyer and Moore
took occasion in seel ing these privileges
to speak of the Holmes syndicate, which
has already done its full share for Rock
Ixlaml, in a manner that was not heard
with any degree of fnvor by the council,
who realize the benefits the city is enjoy
ing from the Chicago company. He
criticized the track laying on Sunday and
claimed the company had no legal rights
on Elm etreet.
Aid. Howard stattd that the new com
pany might as well understand that the
sympathy of the council was with the old
company and that the petition now pre
sented had a savor or' suspicion about it,
in not stating its des red rights tbis side
of Eighth and-a-hatf uvenue.
Mr. Ouyer said it w juld be the purpose
at the next meeting to ask a right over
Eii!htb-acda-balf avenue to Twenty-
rourtn street and thence over Sixth ave
' cue and Eighteenth sired to Second ave
Aid. Howard did nt t believe there was
a member of the council who would
grant any rights that would give the new
company authority di -eclly antagonizing
the old company in the manner it sought
to do. He would be in favor of settling
the question now, and of showing by
their casting vote that the aldermen were
opposed to it.
Mr. Ouyer read a petition from the
property holders on Kim street for the
right asked by the electric company, but
it contained many of be names that had
appeared on the petit on to the Holmes
people to extend their line, and this led
Mr. Wm. Atkinson io explain that he
bad only signed the electric road peti
tion, because be thought the old line
might not be disponed to build at once.
He bad originally signed the petition to
the old line and was a favor of It, and
he wanted it so understood.
Aid. Edwards said the Holmes com
pany bad been granted the right-of-way
up Elm street a year ago. and the road
was constructed undei the protection of
the rights then acquired. The field was
thoroughly canvassed, and the names of
the property holders secured before the
road was built. Tbis aa the only stipu
lation required r; the lounnll. mad it bad
been fulfilled. He warned the council to
beware of granting a cc nfiiction of power
on one street.
The council finally referred the peti
tion to the ordinance committee, street
and alley committee, city attorney and
lr t r Hikm.
A southern exchange has the f ollowi ng ,
which is very apropos of Hock Island
just at this time:
Tell me not in mournful numbers that
the town is full of gloi m, for a man's a
crank who slumbers in these bursting
days of boom. Life ii real, life is earn
nest, and the grave in cot its goal; every
dollar that thou turniat helps the old
town roll. But enjoyment and not sor
row is our destined end of way; if you
have no money borrow buy a corner lot
each day. Lives of great men all remind
us we can win immortal fame; let us leave
the chumps behind us a ad we'll get there
just the same. In t'lis world's broad
field of battle, in the b vouac of life, let
us make the dry bones rattle buy a cor
ner lot for wife. Let is then be up and
doing with a heart for any fate, still
achieving, still pursuicg, booming early,
Hhonld be M copped.
A number of citizens who take pride in
the genera appearancen of the city have
expressed a desire to see some steps
taken to prevent the practice so fre
quently indulged in by a class of worth
less hoodlums in Rock Island, of defac
ing play bill displays. The suggestion
is a wise and considerate one and the
marshal should give instructions to the
police to arrest all guilty of this act of
vandalism and trespass. The outrageous
indecencies to which the public of Rock
Island is daily, subjected by the acts of
this class of miscreants demand the

A TEACHER'S FUNERAL.'
laat Ba Ultra Over the Rmalaa of
MlM Hallle Trow this Altera.
The funeral ceremony for the late Miss
Hallie Trow occurred from the Christian
chapel this afternoon, Rev. Ooo. E.
Piatt officiating. The public schools
dismissed at noon in respect to the de
ceased teacher, and the teachers, and the
alumni association attended in bodies,
while nearly all of .the pupils of No. 3,
and many from other buildings In the
city, were present. The pall bearers,
three from the Christian chapel, and
three from the alumni, were as follows:
Dell Newton, Will Stafford. M. A. Pat
terson, Frank Taylor, Will Aster and E.
The funeral discourse was preached by
Mr. Piatt, and was fouuded on the bibli
cal passages found in Job. 16:20, and
' W hen a few year are come then I shall t" the
way where I shall not return."
"I am the resurrection and tbe life; be that be
lieve! h on me, though he were aVad, yet snail hu
The sermon treated at length on the
subject of death, as a cessation of all ex
istence a severance of all human ties,
however tender and dear. Death
is a solemn fact, a journey
to be taken alone, and from which
there is no return. Mr. Piatt also
touched upon the resurrection, which
bad been proven by Christ passing
through death and the grave unscathed
Death is the breaking of the shell that
gives us a world instead of a narrow
cell; death is the real commencement of
life. So it must be to tbe lovely woman
who had gone; and following this Mr.
Piatt dwelt at length upon her christian
chaiacter, her christian work; her always
lovable, kind hearted disposition in the
church, school and home.
The floral tributes were almost innu
merable. Besides a great many tokens
from her pupils and other public school
children, there was a lovely design, the
gates ajar, from the teachers in the Rock
Island schools; a cross from tbe alumni;
a pillow bearing the inscription, "Our
Ilallie," from the conductors on tbe Illi
nois division of the C, R. I & P. ; a cy
cle and star from the high school class of
'82, of which Miss Trow was a member:
a cluster of roses from the teachers of
No. 3 and one from the teachers of No.
6 a cluster of pine ferns a favorite
with the deceased, from Mrs. Wads
worth. After the service, the remains were
taken back to tbe gloomy home, and to
morrow morning will be conveyed to
Springfield for interment.
Last evening tbe High School Alumni
association met and appointed a commit
tee to draft suitable resolutions, and also
watchers for tonight.
.An Oavrnpurt Telia It.
The Davenport Tribune this morning
has tbe following:
lesteiaay atternoon a inbune repre
sentative accompanied Aids. Smith and
Cantwell, of the paving committee and
Aid. Rath to Rock Island to inspect tbe
paving on Second avenue. Tbe appear
ance oi me street wnere tbe paving is
done is so improved that a stranger would
hardly believe that he was in the same
town. In fact it is a new street. The
brick used for the first course is Rock
Island soft brick w hile Oalesburg hard
nnck is used for the last course. The
soft brick may possibly be all right hut it
is doubtful. The water is liable to cause
tnera io crumnie ana tntn the upper
course will become uneven. ben Dav
enport begins paving no soft brick will
be uxed. Six inches of macadam will be
laid for the foundation and then two
courses of hard brick. Sand will be used
oei ween ine macauan ana each .-course
of brick. The paving will give employ
ment to a number of men and the wages
paid are from $1.50 to $2.50 per day.
After reading tbe above, it is quite
amusing to think of bow much wisdom
there must be pent up over on tbe other
side of tbe river, and of what great
strides a city is going to make in a puv -ing
way that would never have been un
dertaken but for Rock Island's enterprise
in setting the example. In the same pa
per appears another article on the same
subject, among tbe head lines of which
is "A Warning from Rock Island." and
the body of tbe article shows a great
bugr-e-boo, bfic.UH ftupt. Nevina rightly
prevented the tearing up of a portion of
the new pavement to remedy a piece of
broken gas pipe, which was mashed be
fore the pavement was put in, by a wag
on running over it. In this connection
the wise Davenport contemporary takes
occasion to remark:
This is a warning to our own city to
have all needed and soon anticipated
water and gas connections made between
the street mains and sidewalks. That
certainly has not been properly attended
to in Rock Island, whereupon the paving
is nearly completed, that part finished is
sought to be torn up in places for new
Tbe Tribune man who visited Rock
Island and then published bis "warning"
should have made an investigation before
he spoke. All tbe gas and water pipes
throughout the paving district were re
laid before the pavement was laid, and it
was while the ground was still torn up
that a new pipe, unknown then to the
gas company, was run over and broken. I
The first case to come up for trial at
the present term of the circuit court was
that of John McDarrah vs the City of
Rock Island, tried last term with a ver
dict of $2,800 for the plaintiff. The
damages then asked were $5,000, but now
the claim has been raised to f 10.000.

A Great Editor' Grave
As you pass through Cave Hill cemetery,
along the avenue that runs just to the north
ward of the public vaults, you will, perhaps,
sea the grave of George D. Prentice. You
will doubtless be astoniahed to see it marked
by one of the smallest and cheapest pieces of
marble to be found in the cemetery. Near to
this grave are those of Mrs. Prentice and of
Clarence Prentice, tbe son of George D. I
mentioned this to a gentleman who was a
friend of tbe great editor and poet, and who
is familiar with the facta connected with the
closing years of his life. He said:
"For over fifteen years after Prentice's
death bis grave waa unmarked by any stone
"Prentice died poor. His last days were
passed in a Little furnished room in the yard
of his son Clarence, who owned a farm near
the country place of the late Dr. Standiford,
on the Preston street road. His wife died
many years before be did." Louisville Post.

near him with whom as tbe train jaunted

more like, riie foil into conversation with
him. His sol.-mu garb of "decent black" at
tracted Lor fcy., aud she finally asked him
what church he represented. "I'm an Epis
coiialian," repli.ul the traveling rector. She
turned a di&l.-iiaful eye upon him and re
marked with a sij;l: "Well, 1 suppose that's
hotter than nothing; I'm a Methodist my
self." And she adjusted her glasses and
