avenue, tbe speciOcatlons beintr th t the
full width shall be paved from Firrt to
rourtb avenues and from Fourth to Xinth
avenues tbe street to be boulevards ! and
but fortv feet paved. This much It la
set forth shall be done with brick while
the pavement is to be carried to Sigh
teenth avenue with material yet to 1 de
cided upon. Thialsone of the most
commendable acts that tbe city council
at yet done. Twentieth street it oe of
our most important inlets, and the con
cil's idea lo improving It, mty not
only save the ciiy thousands of dllara
doing away with dangers to truffle that
cannot be otherwise avoided, but bring
tbe city many thousands of dollats be
aides giving a street that tbe puhlij and
abutting property holders will be roud
i. The boulevarding from Four h to
inth avenue will not onlv leave i.bunn
dam room for travel, but lessen Ue ex
pense of the pavement and add to the
beauty of the street.
Tbe council recalled its action in the
extension of tbe Second avenue lave
ment and modified the ordinance ome
hat, cutting the paving off at Ninth
street, but ordering it done that far. The
reason for this was to save the expense of
intersections and expend tbe money jUe
wbere wbere similar Improvement are
equally as necessary.
This morning Messrs. R. Cran Dton
and Eli Mosenfelder called on Mayor Mc
Connchie with reference to having tbe
9econd avenue paving swept, anl re
ceived his assurance that if tbe bus-
ness men and residents would hive
the space in front of their ret psa -tive
places swept in hep on Vlon
day, Wednesday and Friday evening,.
tbe city would send teams around the
following mornings and gather uj tbe
heaps, and also that tbe city would see
to the sweeping or tbe intersections.
Messrs. Crampton and Mosenfeliier
then called upon majority of the mer
chants and residents along the laved
street and received their assurance that
they would each and all look after tbeir
portion of tbe pavement on tbe three
evenings of each week named. In this
manner the pavement can lie kept gen

The Rev. C. A. Nybladb'a attorney has
decided that the recent anonymoi s lett
ters, fires, etc.. in Oalesburg have made
that an undesirable place in whhh to
hold tbe trial of the case of Nybladh vs
Lindcblad. He has therefore moved in the
circuit court there to transfer the ciae to
the United States court at Peoria. Tbe
matter came up in this way: Judge Smith
was on Saturday setting tbe trial docket,
and was looking for a case for Mcnday.
Mr. G. A. Lawrence wanted tbe Njbladh
case set fnr that day. Mr. Murphy, Ny
bladb's attorney, said that in that case
they would be prepared to take op on
Monday a motion to have the ci.se re
moved to the United Slate coui t, and
that they would have tbeir papers ready
by that time. Judge Smith set tie Nys
bladb case for Thursday, to that if the
plaintiff's motion is overruled th case
will come to trial at an early date.
Judge Smith this morning reft sed to
transfer tbe case to feona, and it will
com up for trial next Monday.

throughout so full of action, moves so

bad been shipped last night and that ten
more would be forwarded before tbe
close of the week. So thai by tomorrow
a portion at least of tbe new equips
ment will be on Land, and tbe new
cars, if built according to specifica
tions, will be dandies the finest that
have ever come to the three cities,
in all respects. Another closed car
was brought over from Davenport
and placed on the blue line Sunday,
completing tbe winter service on that
route, the two cars recently added from
the Davenport lines having been so
painted as to match those provided last
yesr admirably. Tbe cars expected are
a full set for tbe red line, the bridge line
and the Second street line in Davenport,
tbe cars formerly used by the latter road
having been repainted and assigned to
the blue line here and Third street road
in Davenport, it being desirable to give
the Second street smaller cars.

The dignity and inviolability of tbe
postal card are about to be vindicated by
all tbe majesty of tbe United States
courts. That is to say. If you write upon
a postal card anything "intended to re
flect injuriously upon the character or
conduct of another" you are likely to be
called to account for It. and may suffer a
fine of $5,000 and imprisonment at hard
labor for five years, or both. An enter
prising collector baa used postal cards In
tbe attempt to collect bad debts and went
so far aa to write "D. B." on them, the
same indicating, as the initiated well
know, "dead beat" In consequence
thereof he has been arrested tbe first
case under the law passed in June, 1888
Tbe law also forbids te writing of des
famatory matter on envelopes and wrap

good aense and geod taste.

Next Thursday C. W. Budd, of Des
Moines, tbe champion wing shot of
America, and Fred Erb, of Lafay
ette, Ind., will have a champion shoot
at Davenport for the possession of the
American Field's championship cup
held by C. W. Budd. The cup was won
by L. S. Carter, afterwards J. R. Stice
won it and Budd took It from Slice and
now Erb wants to take it from Budd.
The shoot will be at fifty live pigeons.
Tbe Union at last confesses that a
"comprehensive fire alarm system"
would be quite desirable to Rock Island.
It is indeed a joy to witness the Union i
awakening, and now that it has gotten
into the path to which the Allocs and all
instruments of common sense have long
been endeavoring to direct it, will it not
acknowledge, too, that carts pulled by
horses are of more advantage than these
pulled by small boys, and that it is vastly
preferable to have the truck pulled by
trained horses always near at hand than
in a livery stable half a mile awayT
Pleasant Grove Camp, No. 65, Modern
Woodmen, of Marengo, Iowa, have just
declared Dr. McEinnie to be a disturber
a fraud, etc., and J. C. Root to be an
honest, much-abused man. It, therefore.
modestly asks Abe Lincoln camp, of Mo
line, of which the doctor is a member, to
expel Dr. McEinnie, and thus throw bim
out of the order. The Moline Woodmen
are not likely to heed tbe fraternal le-
quest, as they believe Root, to be a fraud.
and Dr. McEinnie an honest man. There
seems to be but one alternative for the
Woodmen to oust both Root "and Mc
Einnie, and then diligently aid the law in
ferreting out tbe thief. There ia one

It ia tbe crude idea uf the youthful miud
that the world is diridad into two armies
the good and the bad one clothed in dark
ness upon the left, one in garments of light
upon the right, and in deadly opposition to
each other. As we mix with the world this
Illusion vanishes, for we find the two armies
clothed in tbe same habiliments, mixing- to

fought, silently and out of sight lu each
human heart, between light and wrong.
A great native virtue, planted too gener
ously in a human heart and deprived of
careful cultivation, often degenerates Into
a rank vice, and tbe world uot infrequently
mistakes a aterile and inactive nature for

summer sunlight ia beautiful aud beneficent,
