Rock Island, bailing en Ahqus n porter
yesterday. "To have body of eltkr
men who will encourage these enterprise
ana mriDer them despite the itrlctly
local and aelflsh opposition that sure
lo arivs always and everywhere. i truly
a gooa lortune that all progressive cities
do not poftess. One of the best things
the council baa done, next, of cou-se, to
the original paving undertaking td the
general aidealk improvement, is the
ordering of the continuation of the pres
ent Eecona avenue pavement ti the
western part of the city to the manu
iacturirg district, where ell capitalists
are sure to go if they come to tl e city
with a view of seeking investmeat. The
council did a wise thing and a popul.tr
act in countenancing the extension and it
is to be hoped it will stand Arm in its
lam glad, too, to see tbe matter of
improving the Inlets into the city dia
cussed. That idea of curbing and pav
ing seventeenth street clear out -.o the
limits is splendid one. I would 1 ke to
see tbe same plan adopted on Twen
ucm street, loose are tne two main
avenues leading out into tbe oua
try. Improve them and tbe city will
reap a benefit. I have one su;pes-
tion to nuke in connection with the pav
Ing of these two streets and it is this;
iuai aiter getting out as lar as Firth or
Sixth avenues tbe streets be boulevurded
toe remainder of the way, thus not only
very materially reducing the cost inv lved
upon the property holders, but adding
much in the line of beauty and attrac
tiveness to tbe appearances of the s reet.
With these thoroughfares put in
thoroughly passable condition at all
seasons and the Rock river bridges free
as tbe council ought to make them, tbe
business of Rock Island would increase a
good many fold in the next year.
'I like tbe Market square improve
ment suggestion. The square should by
all means be paved with granite and tbe
city fountain and weighmaster's quarters
given a much more attractive sppean.nce.
Make the place look as inviting anc aa
suggestive of enterprise and home pride
as possible. That is my idea exactly."
Tbe Davenport Democrat Qautte it- at
tempting to urge upon the city faihers
over there the very thing the Rock Island
aldermen are doing. It says:
Althoueh a late beginning was n.ade
avt-nport bis pit down three biocls of
brick street paving this year. Those who
ave watched tbe work as hundreds of
citizens have done, are satisfied tha . it
as been carefully and economically d ne.
nd that tbe city has received the fu lest
possible return for its money. Kext
ear instead of putting down three blocks
there will be a demand for ten times as
much, and It will not be confined to one
street or two of them. Rick Inli.nd.
Moline. Burlington. Clinton, Duboaue
nd cities ail sround us will be in tba im
provement busineas.too, and there is 'ear
that there may be a famine of mate inl.
This, however, may be averted. The
right thing tor those to do who intend to
ave tbe streets fronting their propTty
paved is to begin NOW. Not, of course,
lo actually tear up tbe streets, but to cir
culate and sign petitions: get tbera be
fore tbe city council and have the ne sa
lary action taken. In this way tbe con
tracts may be let more advantageously.
Everything will be ready for early be
ginning in the spring, and more and let
ter work will result than if the matur Is
postponed. Tbe businers men and
property owntrs of Davenport are
shrewd enough to see the point. Get
ready now to improve the streets in 1'490.
Rock Islatid is several lengths abeal of
Davenport in the paving business, and
will keep so, having completed twice tbe
umber of blocks, and ordered eltven
more, wuereas Davenpoit has ordered
none, but would it not be part of wis
dom for Rock Island to let all its ton-
tracts as soon as possible, with tbe in
strurtions to the contractors that they
engage their materia at once? The ton-
tract for Eighteenth street has teen
anted, and Messrs. Atkinson & C loff
had better make arrangements for t.ieir
brick without delay.
A TEAK'S IMPBOVEMENTi.
There are a number of improvetni nta
that Rock Island may very easily mike
next year and yet accomplish little n ore
in the way of transformation than it baa
this. But how much in the way of j en
eral good will be done, if the appended
list of projects are consummated, aa tiey
may be. by simple exertion and perse
verance: Build tbe railroad viaduct.
Start the Hennepin canal.
Extend the paving in all directions.
Continue tbe sidewalk Improvements.
Beautify Union tquare.
Declare tbe Rock river bridgea free.
Provide an electric fire alarm.
Agitate the Lnion depot.
This list is worthy of preservation for
reference, as there is not a suggested im
possibility in it, and with these advanta
ges not only will business thriye, out new
Industries and commercial enterprises
will be induced to come from abroad

A Caaflacrattea Preveate by a Prop

There was quite a serious fire in Dav

ternoon. The roof of the Dettensdorf
Metal Wheel works In the manufacturing
portion near tbe Eigle works, was de
stroyed entirely, a loss of fully $10,000,
which is partially covered by insurance
The fire bad its origin in an explosion.
The company burns crude oil in Its fur
naces. A new supply was received to
aay. through the carelessness of the
fireman in patting oil in tbe fur
nace, tbe burning fluid was allowed
to spread to the fresh supply, and a ter
rifle explosion followed, shaking the en
tire building. Flames shot upward, sub
merging tbe entire interior, and driving
tbe employes into tbe street. The wooden
rafters caught fire, and smoke and
flame enveloped the entire building which
was a one story brick with sheet iron
roof. Tbe fire spread to the Red Jacket
