AN IMPORTANT PROJECT.

While no objection whatever is raised
to the council's action of last Monday
night, in ordering eighteen blocks on
Twentieth street paved, there ire a great
m any, especially among our busi nest men,
who would much rather have seen Seven
teenth street so improved first. They
feel, and rightly too, that both thorough
fares should be paved out to tl e extreme
limits of the city, but if a preference is to
be shown for either, it should be for
Seventeenth street, for obvioui reasens.
First and above all it leads more direct"
ly to the business centre of the city, and
is more easily reached by farmers coming
in from the lower end of the cc onty . It
is a direct and uoobstructive inlet to
Market square, the first place the major
ity of farmers go when coming to
town. A large portion of the expense to
property holders will be lessened by the
fact that the Rock Islaod A Milan Street
Car company would pay for its
sliare from First to Seventh ave
nues. It has but a sirgle track
and its assessment, to be sure, would not
compare with that secured from the
Holmes double track system in connec
tion with the Second avenue improve
ment, yet it be something and by adopt
ing the boulevarding plan af t r reaching
Sixth or Seventh avenue, as is to be
the case on Twentieth street, ard doing the
work by the five percent scheme, the cost
to property holders would haidly be felt,
and Rock Uland would be getting; a
street that would bring in new business,
which means iocreased protperity. the
real end and aim of all ou- ambitious
Let the council consider t lis projct,
and while there is no call or desire for
rescinding the action with -eference to
Twentieth street, let Seventeenth street
be paved also, and let it be o-dered with
out delay. It is certainly f more im
portance than Twentieth street, if dis
crimination is to be made.
It appears that the affal.- on Market

James, Martin Renfto and George Lettig
were implicated, was much more serious
than at first represented. The trouble

Retttg and James grappled, and during
the struggle the latter received a fearful

At the meeting of the Moline Business
Men's association Tuesday night the
characteristic spirit of that city toward
anything, no matter how general and
how wide-spreading its advantages, if it
don't directly and solely benefit that town,
was made manifest. The question of ap
propriating $25 from the treasury of the
association as agreed upon by its repre
sentatives in their meeting with the Rock
Islaod and Davenport representatives
here the other day, was brought up. S.
S. Davis being called on, explained that
at the Hennepin canal meeting in Rock Is
land, it was decided to assess the Moline
association that sum, as its portion of the
expense of publishing the proceedings of
the recent Waterway convention at Cin
cinnati for circulation among the mem
bers of congress. The meeting assessed
Davenport $50 and Rock Island $25, and
the associations of those cities had agreed
to pay iL When the question was put
before the house there instantly arose
objections, and Eugene Lewis made
some very pertinent remarks outlining
the situation in a concise manner. He
said Moline bad no more interest in the
canal project as it now stood
than Clinton. Fulton, Dubuque or
ny other town on the upper riv-
The Milan route (which by the
reports of engineers and the plain dic
tates of common sense is self-obviousl y
the poorest of the three proposed) had
been taken up and decided on as the offl-
al route, and so soon as this was done
Moline's interest disappeared. He pointed
out good and sufficient reasons why it
hould do so, most ira port an t among w bicb
was that the construction of the waters
way over the proposed route would ine
vitably rob his city of any prospect of
future participation ia river commerce.
It would render highlv feasible and Drab
ble the undertaking of avoiding the Mo
line rapids by the connection of the river
channel above the rapids with the canal.
This could be done by the construction of
canal only sixteen miles long at a cost
f not more than $500,000. Could Mo.
line in consideration of her best interests.
countenance such a project by lending it
financial aid? The speaker thought not.
He said Moline manufactories would not
be benefitted by the Hennepin canal any-
ow, only on the iocoming consignments
of freight It would be no use to ship
pers there, and be thought Moline would
act consistently in refusing to have any
thing to do with iL
Remarks on a similar strain were made
by Capt W. C. Bennett, W. J. Entrtkin,
G. W. Vinton and others, all attempting
to show that it would not do for the as
sociation to represent Moline as endors
ing a scheme so manifestly opposed to
her interests, ss they expressed it. . The
Ditpatch says "Mr. Murphy's assumption
that the present congress will take action

The Moline Business association has
resolved that the Rock river bridge must
be free in other words, the farmer com
ing to Moline shtll not be made to pay
a tribute for the privilege of coming here
to spend his money. The only question
nowis, will the bridge be exempted from
taxation? But this need not stand in the
way. Moline and her 15,000 people can
well afford to pay the taxes, if demand
ed, and maintain the structure on the
sum saved alone by the reduced price of
country produce. The matter can be
carried through if the merchants of Mo
line will only work for it, as it is for their
interest to do so. Moline DitptUch.
That's wisdom, every word of it; and
it is the course that Rock Island should
pursue exactly. The idea of taxing peo.

ages that should cease to be ever

principle of the thing is more than the
reality, and as long as there is as much
