The movement in favor ot extending
the brick pavement at least one block on
each aide of Second avenue on the inter
seeling street between, and including
Twentieth anl Fourteenth, is gaining
favor, and should the council order this
done It will meet with unanimous ap
proval. The pavement has made such a
favorable impiession as it has progressed,
that there is a general cry for more, and
it is more thai probable that it will not

ANOTIKR PAVING BOOM.
The residents of Second avenue west of
Fourteenth at-eet are wonderfully pleased
with that portion of the avenue paved
east of this si vet so much so that the
council will bs asked to pass an ordi
nance contint ing the improvement as far
west a. Sever th street. And this will be
done so the property holders along the
line will not leel the etpense. Twentv
per cent of the cost of the pave
ment will le collected annually for
Ave years from the real estate owners.
and certificates will be issued bear
ing interest at the rate of six per
cent per annum to cover the expense.
One capitalist already has agreed to take
these certific ttes at their face value and
provide money enough to do all the
curbing. CI sveland stone seems to be
regarded with greater favor than any
other for cursing. The Holmes company
will undoubtedly assist the enterprise by
extending it double track to include the
plow works witch.
If these extensions are to be made it
behooves tha couocil to act without de
lay at one of its meetings this month, as
it Is desirab'e that the proceedings be en
tered in the November term of the county
court.in ortier that the preliminaries may
be dispense 1 with this spring and opera
tions commenced early in the spring.
THE SDK WALK IMPROVEMENTS
along Second avenue have assumed a
more promising shape, and everywhere
are evidences of a determination to have
this part of the new thoroughfare com
pleted this fall if possible. In the block
between Seventeenth and Eighteenth
streets only three walks are to be laid
F. Ludoloh's. Parts' Sons, Krell's
and Zeigler's. and these have all been
ordered. Wevtrliauser & Denkmann
have ordered Bedford stone for the front
of the Star block extending to Nineteenth
street opposite the Harper house, thus
completing the north side of that block.
Below Seventeenth street property holders
j are. as a ri le, ready to lay their walks
and have simply been waiting for the
I establishment ot the curb.
j The filling of the north side of the
j court bousa square preparatory to laying
a tile walk, was attended to today.

the most of by him.

Reports of an alarming prevalence of
diphth :ria in Rock Island have caused a
great t eat of anxiety in Rock Island of
late, bit while it is a fact that there have
been several serious cases and a fe
deaths, and that parents should exercise
tbe most diligent care with their chil
dren, -he extent of the disease as it ex
ista in Rock Island is not as bad as it has
been pictured, and it is found mostly
in thj neighborhood of tbe slough
Last month the cases averaged one a day,
but a veral days have now elapsed since
any new cases have been reported, so it
may be hoped the disease is abating.
A death occurred last night and another
this morning. Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Buncher living on Sixth avenue between
Twel'th and Thirteenth streets lost their
son I'rankie, aged eight years and eleven
months yesterday. This morning John
C, sou of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Bisant,
of 2212 Second avenue, expired aged six
jean and eleven months.

baa saa Why.'
The Fen ner & Crane All-Star Comedy
company, which baa been giving such
clever entertainments at Harper's theatre
during the past week, will cease to exist
after the performance at Harper's theatre
tonight. Mismanagement, is the cause
ot the misfortune. The company
Is a very expensive one, being
possessed of some of the best
dramatic talent on the read, hut it
has been doing a fair busines, and
with good management the company
would unquestionably have pulled
through. Fenner, the senior member of
the firm, who has looked after the book
ing and finances is chiefly to blame,
Crane the junior partner being an actor
who devotes his time to the stsge.
"Fenner & Crane are totally irrespon
sible," remarked Rob. V. Ferguson, the
bright and original comedian who has
been the life of the company, this morn
ing. "They started us out six weeks ago
with representations that there was lots
of money on hand and with the promise
that no matter how bad business was,
salaries would be paid. Fenner left the
company in B!oomington last week for
Chicago, without a word to the members
of the company, but he sent telegrams
saying he would be in Rock Island with
the salaries Monday night. The Bloom-
ington house-rent was left unpaid, and
the members of the company were obliged
to reach Rock Island on their own re
sources. Fenner did not keep his promise
about coming to Rock Island, but sent
his son for what purpose or reason the
company does not know. Mr. Crane is
reticent and gives us no satisfaction. To
night after the show the company will
disband. It is simply a case of
No expostulation ;
Complete c ssation,
Mr. Ferguson further said the sincere
thanks of the company were due Mana
ger Steel for courtesies and opportunities
given the company.
Tbe company is not exactly stranded
as Las been whispered about hotel corners
for a day or two. Business, though
poor at the opening, has increased during
the week, and the actors simply mean to
quit because their salaries are not paid.
It is tbe best popular price company that
has ever played in Rock Island, and its
collapse is to be regretted .
The company appears tonight In the
new play as bad been originally planned,
and will give away the present adver

Eminent Commander H. C. Cleaveland
and a large number of the Sir Knights of
Evert's Commandery. No. IS. Knights
Templar, some accompanied by their
wives, started for Washington to attend
the great triennial conclave of tbe United
States, this morning. A new chair car
was sent down to the U. I. & P. depot
where it was appropriatly decorated
bearing on either side a streamer with
the inscription "Evert's Commandery No.

Tbe car on reaching Chicago was
switched by the C, R. I. & P. into tbe
Pennsylvania depot where a Pullman car
was in waiting for the Rock Island
party. To this the streamers were trans
ferred and the car made a part of a
special Cullman train of six sections
which is to convey the Grand Com
mandery of .Illinois as a betallion to
Washington. The train was advertised
to leave Chicago at 5:10 and stop at
Harrisburg, Pittsburg 'and Baltimore,

additional Sir Knights joined the Rock
Island party in Chicago, and Mr. Wm.
