more popular aentiment fa rora tbe lmme
diate erection of galea at tbe Twenty
fourth and Eighteenth street railroad
croaainirs, and a aconwqtence tbe more
inclined tbe aldermen become to urge the
neceesity of requiring tba. the precau
tiona be taken by tbe roat a without de
lay. It baa become a pietty well as
sured fact that next summer will witneia
the construction of tbe viaduct; as a
greater, stronger nd mora determined
effort ia to be made this Mrinter in that
direction than ever before, and the Aftoca
ia satisfied that with tbe appropriation
the government bas made an amount
sufficient to erect the viiduct can be
raised to insure the project. But
in the meantime what? How is the
public to be protected until each time
as the viaduct ia erected? Tbe an
swer that tbe public baa a along all
these years, during which a ly number of
hair breadth escapee have occurred, is
not sufficient. A calamity ia likely to
occur at thit crossing at any moment
Tbere is not a more dangeioua crossing
anywhere, and every da) that it is
left unguarded leaves public safes
ty unprotected so mtch longer.
The gales, which have a read v been
practically ordered by tbo council at
this junction and also at Eighteenth
street, afford '.he only solution of the dif
ficulty. "Give us the gate!" is the cry
of the public that is inert as ing every
day, and the aldermen all realize this
fact. Aid. Hampton, chairman ot tbe
ordinance committee, has the resolution
requiring tbe galea and spjcifyiog tbe
kind, already prepared, and will offer it
at tbe next council met ting. Mr.
Hampton stated last eveni ig: "I have
obeyed tbe council's instructions with re
gard to tbe galea for Twemy-fourth and
Eighteenth streets, and ha'-e prepared a
resolution authorizing tbe iitjle of galea
used at Brady street in Dt.venport, for
both these crossings. We cannot be too
careful about these thing. For my
part I would like to see th-m at Twen
tieth street, also."
Tbe council will probalilj order the
gates al Twenty-fourth and Eighteenth
streets at its next meeting; while Twenty-fourth
street is of coursa tbe more
dangerous place. Eighteenth street also
requires protection. There is no reason
why the latter street should not be
guarded and the aldermen will not en
courage a pure spirit of balinacy by
failing to order the gates pltred tbere.
The precaution ia warranted, and tbe
council would surely feel a sense of
responsibility should a Beriois accident
occur there at some time in the future
owing to a failure to provide the gates.
Let the gates be ordered st once and
let them be built close to tl e track at

Supt. Nevins in charge of the paving
operations on Second avenue had an ex
perience with Driver Herman Jacobs of
car Mo. 1 of tbe Davenport and Rock
Island line this afternoon. The trouble
grew out of a plain usurpation of power
on the part of 8upt. Neyins. Tbe car
was coming west on Second avenue
through that portion which is being paved,
when Supt. Kevins ordered the driver to
go slower. The driver slackened up bis
ateed, but did not get ' it down to
a degree sufficient to satisfy Mr.
Nevins who boarded the front plat
form of tbe car, and exactly what passed
between him and tba driver is not
known, but at any rate angry words en
sued, which resulted in the driver catch
ing Mr. Nevins by tbe throat and chok
ing him severely, and the two men were
only separated by Sheriff Silvis, who took
the driver to the armory. Supt. Hill,
on hearing of the facta, went to the ar

and that he had a right to board tbe car
and admonish him to use care.
The driver claims that he was driving

tinning until tbe middle of winter and re

paving operation! and other general
street and sidewalk improvements, tbe
various buUding enterprises, etc., there ia

The wide brick sidewalk about Union
square is being laid rapidly, tbe Second
avenue aide having been entirely com
pleted, and tbe corner has been turned,
and work fairly commenced on Nine
teenth street. Tbe more this work pros
grecses, the more unsightly becomes the
appearance of the surface of the square,
and the more apparent becomes tbe ne
cessity of filling it this fall.
At the last meeting of the Citizens'
Improvement association, aa readers of
tbe Argus are aware, the beautifying
committee of that progressive body wss
instructed to go before tbe council at its
next meeting and urgs upon tbe city fa
thers the importance ot having the square
filled before frost enters the ground, so
that tbe beautifying may be completed
early in tbe spring. Tbe coun
cil has shown by its action
that its ruling spirit favors having the
square filled, but tbe fact that the funds
have become exhausted out of which such
improvements must be made, has handi
capped the council in carrying out its de
sire in this respect. But a wav out of
tbe predicament will present itself to the
council at its next meeting, in a proposi
tion from a local contractor wbo bas plenty
of teams at his disposal, to fid the square
at once and wait until next soring when
the new appropriations are made, for his
money. This is indeed a fair proposition
and the council will probably accept it
and authorize tbe filling done under those

and that early in the spring the plans for
beautifying it, such aa covering it with
grass, putting in tbe cross walks, flowers,
etc., may be done. If tbe council ac
cepts the proposition spoken of, at its
next meeting it will demonstrate that
Rock Island can do what it never has be
fore, conceive and carry out not only one
project, but two in a single season.

The Clinton Xewi says of the juvenile
Frankie Jones. Clinton's favorite little
artist, supported by a fine dramatic com

Monday evening. His first appearance

hearty applauding on tbe part of his
many admirers, and as the entertainment
progressed he proved himself entirely
worthy of the ovation he received, as he
had done on previous occasions. Witb
Frsnkie's talent the people are given an
