The mistaken ideas that have been
built a id encouraged by some that the
eight he ur ordinance ia to aftVct the cost of
the con t -jib plated paving extensions, which
were s fullv exposed in last Saturday
night's iRGua, has led to general change
of aenti nent on the part of many and the
appreh nsion thai the preaent city coun
cil ini( t countenance a movement that
looks t the overthrow of the bright
prospec s that the present municipal body
has itse f created and fostered, hag mate
rially duappeared in the past lwentyfour
Puhli. spirited citizen re now confi
dent tb .t tonight's meeting of the citv
council will not result in any retrograde
movement in the way of p-tvinf im
provers m. Ii haa been so plainly
explained that the eight hour re
striction enter into the improvement
only aa between the contractor and his
men. th a most of the property holders
even thi se who have signed remonstance
under ei tirely wrong impressions, are not
worryin; themselves longer over any
great hardships that may be imposed
upon tlem. The contractor pays bis
men by :he hour, not by the day or by
the job, and if his men are not satisfied
with thiir time they must look to the
council lor remedy. The qutstion of the
eight ho tr day docs not in the least af
fect the property bolder, that has been
clearly remonstrated, and every effort to
retard paving extensions on any such
theories re not likely to have serious ef
fect will the majority of the council who
ordered the pavement, and also or.
dered th i eight hour day.
It has been suggested that if the prop
erty boilers on Second avenue and on
Twentieth street do not want paving
done thi year under the eight hour law
the council might change the scene of its
paving op rations to Moline avenue. The
idea of aving Moline avenue is an ex
cellent o ie,and wili sooneror later receive
favorable consideration at the hands of
the counsil no doubt But let the alder
men sto long enough to consider the
effect of retracing its steps with reference
to pavim; improvements already ordered
Let the t Iderinen consider this sugges
tion for a moment; if the remon
strances iL'-.iii-i the paving on Second
avenue and on Twentieth street are
heeded, how long will it take the prop
ertv ho ders on Moline avenue or anv
ther i Ik roiti;bfare where paving is con
sidered, to pre p., re and stick remon
strances inder the aldermen's noses? In
fact how much paving would have been
done last year if the council bad been dis
posed la consider remonstrances in the
light of tavor? Do not the aldermen re
member iow quick a remonstrance was
prepared on Moline avenue a few
weeks av i when the subject of paving
there wa: Ural broached? The rem in
sirance in reality got in ahead
of the petition to pave, and has been
in the hauls of the city clerk since
No, a tttf council cannot afford to honor
rcmon.tr trees whose aim is to check pub
lic and neceasary improvements. The
remonstrance is a document that cannot
be encou-aged in works of this kind It

merited t leir confidence rather than their
disconurt. If it haa made enemies
through ita determination not to

city's growth and advancement, it has

Has the preaent council acted so far like
one of tl ose old fashioned engines that
must bac up several rods before It gets

conncil should tear up what pavement has
been put down on Second avenue before
any mort can be put down on that street.
Bat the 'nion'i idea is out of the ques
tion, as the contract has been let and the
council cannot interfere now without
placing toe city in jeopardy of litigation.

HOME FROM THE CAPITAL.
Mayor McConochie's Return from
The Prnnpeetn for tbe .nn Fartorv
An Vnaattarartary Propoatiton"
The Viadwet, anal. Rt.
Mayor McConochie returned this morn
ing from Washington. He and Mr
Fred Hass left the capital Friday night,
spent Saturday in New York and reached
Chicago last night. Mr. Hass remained
over today in Chicago on business per
taining to the viaduct, and tbe mayor.
anxious to reach home as quickly as poe
sible to prepare himself for tonight's
council meeting, came on directly to this
city. An Abuus representative had a
few minutes conversation with the mayor
this morning, and when inteirogated as
to the gun factory project, Le said :
"I believe the secretary of war is fav
orable to the project, generally, so to
speak; but he may not urge it, owing to
tbe fact that no established policy of for
tifications has been established yet
When foris are made then the secretary
will be for arming tbem, and Rock
Island arsenal will have a show at mak
ing the guns. He is opposed to piling
up guns in tbe yards, but if tbe forts are
built, he will, I believe, recommend a
gun factory for Rnck Island The secra
tary was surprised when he learned of
the amount of money that had been spent
on the island and unreservedly expressed
his belief that the island ought to be
utilized by the government more than it
is. He made one suggestion, however,
that we did not look upon with any great
degree of favor. Tbe government is soon
to locate three national prisons and he
made tbe suggi st ion that one of those
might be located on tbe island of Rock
Island We did nat manifest our ap
proval of such an idea, but made up our
minds we would come home and see what
people said about it. It is my recollec
tion that sevetsl years ago there was a
prison there but it was afterwards moved
to Leavenworth, Kan., in response to a
vigorous effert on the part of the city. I
don't think we want any prison oyer
The mayor said the Iowa and Illinois
congressional delegations were solid for
the gun factory, but that Gen. Benet, the
chief of ordnaLce, was opposed to it and
termed it a "white elephant."
The viaduct and tbe Hennepin canal
prospects the mayor regards as hopeful.
He says that Mr. Hass called upon the
supervising architect of the treasury de
partment with reference to the proposed
government building at Rock Island
Messrs McConochie and Hass had a
pliasant interview with the president and
have evidently made their time count to
the fullest extent. They say that Mr
Ainsworth, of Moline, went to Chatta
nooga from Washington and that Mr
Wylie, of Davenport, went to New York
Mr. Sickles, of Davenport, did not show
up at all.
The mayor takes the right view about
the national prison. We don't want it,
thank you, Mr. Secretary, we want
something that will work a benefit to our
laboring people in tbe three cities not
an injury. Some other community may
be glad toget your prison, but as for us,

There was an attendance of about

The delegation from this cily was met at

escorted to the school through the prin
cipal streets in style and then heartily

Mr J E Goemble, of Milan, read a pa
per on the two subjects, "Is it desirable
to substitute for the school reader, in tbe
more advanced readinp classes, some of
tbe longer sele tions or entire works of
authors T" and ' If desirable, how should
the teacher be guided in making the se
lections, in what grades should this work
be introduced, and bow should such read
ing exercise be conducted?'-and instruc
tive discussions followed. Then Princi

Mr. J. W. Cavanaugh, ex-alderman
and ex deputy sheriff, and one of tbe
foremost promoters of tbe eight hour
league, was asked this morning to ex
press bimself from the standpoint of an
eight hour man as to the effect of the or
dinance on the paving contracts, and
"The eight hour ordinance does not af
fect the cost of tbe paving an iota All
we ask for is tbe eight hour day, and are
willing to accept pay accordingly. It is
a matter the tax-payer bas nothing to do
ith. We 1 ok to tbe council to give us
the eight hour day, then we will expect
tbe contractor, whoever he may oe, to
work bis men eight hours, and those men
will only ask eight hours pay for eight
hours work. We are not asking ten
hours pay for eight hours work, be as
sured of that "
The subscription masquerade of the

Fire at the County Farm.
Coal Valley, Feb. 17 A fire oc
curred at the county farm Saturday afs
ternoon. Tbe inmates of the main build
ing saw a blaze in tbe rofjf of tbe stew
ard's bouse and gave the alarm. Fortu
nstely tbe poor house committee,
carpenters and others were there, and
were immediately on tbe scene. Tbe fire
caught in one corner o tbe main part of
the dwelling. It soon ran along tbe
comb under the shingles, and all along
the building. They first used buckets to
extinguish it, keeping it under control
unil the hose was attached to the pump
which actea wen, ana ere long its pro
gress was arrested . It probably caught
from sparks from tbe kitchen chimney,
as there bad been some fine rubbish burnt
in the stove through tbe day. This is the
most reasonable cause of any suggested.

AN ADVERTISEMENT shonld be a public statement of
a fact. A misleading advertisement never paid in the long run
and seldom in the short run. Customers are not fools in any
community. When told by a flaming advertisement that dollar
goods are to be sold for a quarter, they begin a mental calcula
tion, and will, ten chances to one, figure it out that the advertiser
lied twice as much as he really aid. Mclntire Bros, propose
to advertise facts. Thy are now receiving their spring goods.
In Woolen Dress Goods the leading fabrics are Mohairs,
Serges and Henriettas, which we show in blacks and colors. Mo
hairs 30c per yard up to $1 10. You will be pleased with weight
and finish of three special numbers of Black Silk finished Hen
riettas at 83c, 89c and 98c per yard, 46 inch wide.
Wash Goods are seasonable and in good demand. Wise
women will not put off their purchases till the eleventh hour
Ginghams in beautiful plaids at 10c and 15c, fast colors.
Sati ties will be popular. There is a fashionable fondness
for the colorless tans, tor grey and black and the various tints of
pnrple. including violet, petunia, and lavender, all liberally toned
with white and darker shades. We show the largest assort
ment we have ever opened at 10c. 12c up to 25c a yard.
We don't ask you to select from samples (as some of our
neighbors request you to do in their advertisements) but have

very reasonable in prices this season.
