tary of the work, and Aid. Xegua and
Hampton aaid it waa a better job than
they bad aeen in their official Uur of in
spection of other brick paved cities.
Mayor McConochie expressed bis belief
that funds collectable by asseismenl to
defray the expenses of tbe imp -ovement
would be in within ten days.
Aid. Corken brought up tbe matter of
tbe diabolical job that is being made in
tbe relaying of tbe walk on the north
side of court bouse square, ard called
tbe council's attention to the ci y ordin
ances on the subject, a section of which
says that stone walks must be 'of good
smooth stone flagging, not less tl an three
inches in thickness, firmly laid in sand
and well jointed." Tbe only portion of
tbe walk that is in compliance with ordi
nance specifications, the aldero an said,
was that it was laid in sand. 'I he stone
broken stone at that was tot more
than one to one-and-a-half inclss thick
and not jointed at all, and he mc red that
tbe mayor and street and alley ce mmittee
stop the work and have it properly done.
Aid. Hampton, for a wonder, thought
the walk ought to be condemned
Aids. Schnell, Schroeder and Howard
expressed their indignation that such a
disgraceful piece of work should be un
dertaken. Tbe views of Supervisor Atkin
son as representing tbe count? board
were solicited and be stated that ibe walk
waa being put down because two mem
bers of tbe committee on public t xpendi
tures, having no interest in the city, bad
overruled tbe Rock Island member and
that the stonea was dangerous, unsightly
and unfit for a walk.
Tbe council thereupon by untnimous
vote ordered that tbe relaying af the old
walk be discontinued and tbe mayor then
and there notified tbe marshal to -itop the
work this morning and be did so.
At next Monday night's meet ng the
municipal body will doubtless te called
upon to act on tbe petition for tbe ex
tension of the improvement of Second
avenue to tbe plow works. There is
some opposition to tbe project, but it
should be ignored in the interests of pub
lic progress. There are tho.e who,
prompted by selfish aims or otherwise,
fought the pavement that bas ben laid.
but the magnificence of tbe wi rk bss
bushed their dissentiDg voices snd put
them to ahaaie; Tbe pretent council bas
tbe reputation of being tbe best the city
has bad for years in point of alvanced
ideas and of sanctioning public enter
prise. This Is not the time to nar that
reputation. Tbe city fathers cannot
afford to set a precedent of ignor ng tbe
popular will and the public cry for im
provements and of recognising tie band
of opposition. If they do they will be
expected to sit down on all petitions for
improvement, and tbe good woik only
now begun will close. Tbe extension of

For several days reports have been pre

of diphtheria in Rock Island and natural
ly much alarm bas been thus created,
and tbe advisability of closing tbe schools
baa been agitated. . Tbe official record
shows tbe status of the disease during
the past week to bave been practically
unchanged. bnt.President Thomas of the
board of education, in consultation with
tbe other directors, deemed an investiga
tion of the disease, as far as it affects tbe
schools, expedient, and Sapt. Eemble
made it yesterday with results that are
very gratifying indeed, for out of 2.050
pupila enrolled only sixteen are down with
diphtheria and only eighteen are de

disease in their fsmilies; while of tbe
sixteen cases reported Mr. Kemble states
several are out of school only because
the time for removing tbe quarantine
from their homes bas not yet expired.

Taking these figures as a basis of so

judgment of the members that with the
precautions exercised by teachers in tend

tbe least evidences of throat affection,

of the disease more thsn to have the

NEW RAILWAY PROJECT.

There is probably no community in the
United States so well provided with street
railways as tbe three cities. These art
teries of transportation through which
flow the life blood of a city are spreading
out in all directions, and yet new onea
are talked of. Tbe most important of these
now is a line to be propelled either by
horse power or electricity and extending
out from Third or Fourth avenue on
Ninth atreet in direction of South Rock
Island. There is a thickly settled and
growing population out in that vicinity
that would be brought into Rock Island
by this enterprise. .
Tbe Holmes syndicate which bas re
cently built up Elm street to South Park,
and which now bas a line running west
on Third avenue to Twelfth street, baa
already had under consideration a purpose
apply to for a franchise from the junc
tion of Third avenue and Twelfth street
south on the latter to Fourth avenue and
thence west to Ninth street and out as far
as business will justify, or further to such
a point as by building iu Elm street line
further south and west by a circuitous
route to reach tbe bluffs and join its con
templated Ninth street road, thus making
an endless line.
This would be a very desirable project
and would doubtless, in the bands of the
Holmes people, prove a paying enter
prise. At any rate it would afford a con
venience that the public should have, as
it would also top tbe now rapidly grow
ing resident portion of the city on the
bluff and bring it nearer to tbe business
heart of the cilv.

There waa quite an excitement down

caused by tbe threatened annihilation of
a man who thought be would be very
bold. Mrs. S. B. Smith, who resides
across tbe river, was on ber way to the
ferry boat to return home when she was
overtaken by a young man named Drury,
who made an indecent and insulting pro
posal to ber. She resented it witb a flow
of oratory and later in a more formidable
way. She returned to tbe city for tbe
purpose of procuring cartridges for ber
revolver, but could not load the revolver
quick enough, and without ssying much
seized a buggy whip and began a vigor
ous assault upon ber insulter, adminis
tering to bim a aound drubbing. The
affair created no little excitement on tbe
boat. Muscatine Journal.
