The Solution of the Second Avenne
Matlafartiaa af tlie Aggrieved Proper
ty Hldra-The rtvrsirit Prog,
reaa Tke Via act qaeatlaa.
The proposition of Mr. DaTid Don ap
pearing In last night's A no us to ask the
council to permit fie present grade of the
curbing and walks on Second aTenue be
tween Sixteenth and West Seventeenth
streets, where the knoll is to be removed,
to remain standing simply substituting
a deeper curb meets with satisfac
tion among the property holders oppos
ing disturbing the present street grade.
One of the nutu xr who fought the
change of the grade stated last evening:
''The propositioi. is the solution of the
entire difficulty, and if the council will
simply leave the curbing alone at its
present grade of course ordering a
wider curb we will consider our griev
ance at an end. My better judgment
told me from the flist that the street pro
per ought to cone down, if it was
to be permanently improved, but lop
posed it because I relieved it would be a
serious and unnecetssry detriment to my
property interests. The council can just
as well, and without committing itself to
its future policy, make the com
promise now suggested. Of course'
when the time comes for any
new buddings to bt erected in the dis
trict in dispute, tin re will be time to
(hink of something else. I have no de
sire to interfere with public improve
ments,, and if the cc uncil can make them
in this case without ruining abutting
property, so much the better."
Tbis gentleman was one of the most
emphatic opponent of the lowering of
th6 street to the proper grade, yet be
spoke with much enthusiasm of the
present system of public improvements,
and the council will show the proper
policy by giving the new proposition
careful consideration and granting the
wishes of the propeity holders in this re
gard if it can possibly be done.

operations this mori ing to the intersec

Mayor MeConochi; had a conference
with Division Agent Mack, of the C. B.
& Q. road, yesterday relative to the put
ting in of the gates at the crossings on
Twenl-yfourlh and Sighleenth streets.
Mr. Mack, while expreftsitig the entire
sympathy of his company with every ef
fort on the part of the city to pro
tect human life and also improve
the city, stated tht.t the company
and be believed it t lie the position of
the C , R I fc P., as well was more de-
sirious of seeing the viaduct built and of
contributing every assistance reasonable
to secure its construe ion. If there was
a prospect of this improvement being
provided the railroal companies would
dislike the expense of putting in the
gates in the meantime .
The mayor will lay the matter before
the council at the next meeting, but any
delay that may be occasioned by
prospects ot the viiduct and it is a
pleasure to note that the prospects are
good should not interfere with the pas
sage of an ordinance requiring ga'es
on Eighteenth strut t, which is also

Marshal Miller and Officer Loge made

other cutlery which they had evidently
stolen. Lter the marshal learned
of two suspicious men were seen
near the C, B. &, Q. culvert back
of the Rock Islaud round house.
He and Officer Loge went up there and
arrested a stranger, who had in his posi
session a box which had contained cuts
lry of the same description, and also a
pair of horse clippers and a huc.et of
candy. He gave his name as John Man

Davenport, evidently belong to the suie

they have probably burglarized a box car
somewhere. This afternoon Officer Loge
found fifteen knives and a table knife
bidden near where the arrest was made,

which was directed to Henry Dart's Sons.
