The apeciil meeting of citizena at the
rooms of th a Rock Island Citizens' lm
H"-iutMu association lait evening
called to he tr the views of Col. 8. N.
Stewart, of Philadelphia, concerning the
feasibility o ' the construction of a pon
loon bridge between tha cities of Rock
Ialand and Davenport, was not largely at-
iu loci, or inoae who were
present, Da enport was as well repre
sented as R ick Island. President Hass,
of the Improvement association, called
the meeting to order and nominated Gen.
W. A. Scbmltt for chairman. The nom
ination ws sustained and Mr. Walter
Johnson ui animously elected secretary.
voi. rue an was men called upon to
fll aJa. . -a ...
present his suggestions and he first gave
description of the pontoon bridze
which he said had been in existence
ever since the earliest annals of re
corded his ory and he presented many
advantages in their favor. One
would cost but one sixth as much as an
iron uridge and would be nine-tenths as
good. Re gave statistics to show the
durability rot the pontoon in comparison
with ti e inn bridce and the safety au.
tacbed to and economy of running it. He
had built aeveral of theeie hrirl asset nrpr
- o -
he Missouri which had been attended
with the utmost success. The only dif
ference be ween. his. bridge and the old
time pontoon bridges was the draw,
which by invention of his, is made to
open and siut with the current, It requir-
ng the seri ices of but one man to oper
ate it. A nidge of the nature he had in
contemplat on here would cost $48,000;
of this amount he asked that 924.
000 be tsken as nrimarv stock in
the cities of Davenport and Rock
Island an 1 the difference would be
made by nmself and associates who
would bu Id the bridge, take their
stock as secondary, and ask no dividend
until fifteen per cent had been paid on
the local referred stjck . He had ap
peared before the Davenport Business
Men's asso :iation in the afternoon where
his project was received wtih much en
thusiasm, bad it was referred to the com
mittee on manufactures. Messrs. Hoyt
and Bunker, members of which were
present last evening. Col. Stewart ex
pected, be said, to raise $16,000 of the
stock allot ed to the two towns in Dav
enport, an 1 ftl, 000 in Rock Lland, or he
ventured la say. if Rock Island did not
invest in it he thought all the
$24,000 cr uld be raised in Davenport.
He did not propose to make any effort to
get stock, but when it was secured he
would tak It, and bui'd the bridge. He
regarded this i oint as affording
the best possible inducements to
pontooi bridge because there was a
arge city in cither aide of the river. both
of which bad attained that importance
when they grow steadily each year, and
further ti at the success of the bridge
wae assursd by (be fact that despite the
free gove nment bridge a large ferry
costing n ore than half the cost of
he pontoon bridge, could run at a
cost of h2i a day and the nridee
would require but one man, and the
aggregate daily expense would not ex
ceed 4 i day. His rates of toll, he
said, would be two and a-balf cents for
pedestrians each way, five cents to ail
teams eac.t way, except load- barred from
he government bridge, on which the toll
would be orty cents for the round trip
He estimsted the total annual receipts to
be fyo.OO). and he had no hesitancy in
stating th it if the bridge was built it
would dri 'e the ferry out of existence,
and he i xpected opposition from the
Rock Inlaid and Davenport Ferry com
pany, as -yell as from certain of the retail
merchant). He made the assertion that
the ferry was a power in the community
and said hat the building ot the pontoon
bridge wi uld be the death of the ferry
and at th i same time take a large portion
of the pr -tits of the Davenport & Rock
Island a reel railway. There was no
pbilantbriohy in business he said, and he
knew the t bis enterprise would run the
ferry out He would therefore agree to
give the Terry company f 500 to tie up as
soon as tae bridge company was formed,
or he would lease the boat and run it
until th bridge was constructed. He
would HI e to do this because be con tem
pi ated tlat the Rock Island approach to
the bridge ahould be where the ferry now
landa. If the ferry proprietors would
not agre to this the bridge would have
to be built lower down, and moved up
after the ferry had been forced to aban
don business. He did not think that the
ferry was charging reasonable ratea, and
thought that the ferriage should be less.
He tho ight there would be immense
profit- it a pontoon bridge which would
get all tlie money that now goes to the
ferry, vhicb would simply have to tie
At the conclusion of Col. Stew
arts n marks, Uenerai scnmitt said
he did not think the bridge was
eatential to the convenience
or to th ! interest of tha people of Rock
Island, is it would if we did not have a
bridsefod the best ferry on the river;
Indeed he best facilities for crossing the
river t ake it the year round that there
are ab ve St. Louis. He thought the
cities o Davenport and Rock Ialand were
especia ly favored in thia respect and
could tell be satisfied with what they
Mr. " 'red Haaa also spoke briefly on the
subject He favored all Improvements,
but he could not see wherein this move
was abtolulely demanded by the commu
ni-v a ,d he could not aee what could be
done a once to encourage it.
The natter waa finally disposed of by
its reference to a committee compoaed of
Messrs David Don and Howard Wells to
confer with a Davenport committee at
Col. Siewart's suggestion.
Col. Stewart would no doubt hare made
a bctU r impression had he not been in
clined to boast of bow his project was to
destroy other enterprises in which Rock
Island capital is interested. As the An
nus has before had occasion to say when
the electric road sought admittance to
Rock Island, it is not necessary in order
to get additional benefits to crush
others of long standing. It ia un
necessary to state that the Argus
haa no interest in the Davenport and
Rock Island ferry or in any other
transportation corporation and it has not
hesitated to encourage and to aid as far
as in its power.rival enterprises calculated
to give to the people increased facilities
for travel, as it did in the bridge railway,
but it doea not aee that the public inter
eats or the welfare of the people demand
that the ferry be driven out of existence
and its value ruined in order to accom
modate another money-making concern
that is coming In with that avowed pur
pose. The Rock Island and Davenport
ferry haa for years given the cities of
Rock Island and Davenport the best fa
cilities that could be sought, as Col.
Stewart himself acknowledged, the best
ferry on the Mississippi, and there has
been no complaint that the Arous has
heard of that its charges have been tin
As to the merits of the undertaking
either as a financial venture or as a sub
stantial mode of drawing the cities of
Rock Island and Davenport. nearer to
gether, an idea cannot be hastily formed.
If the plan were to stretch a bridge of
some sort across Rock river bottoms to
the lower end of Rock Island county,
there would be no ht-sitanc) whatever on
the part of Rock Island in giving ii all
the encouragement possible

Shortly after midnight Monday oc
curred the death of Mr. Moses Tittering
ton, a well known retired farmer of Edg
ington, of liver ailment, the outgrowth of
the grip. He was born in Yorkshire,
England, Sept. 24, 1810, and came to
America when seven years of age. His
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas fitter -ington,
first settled in Ross county, Ohio,
and in 1835 the family came to Illinois,
first locating in Will county, but remov
ing soon after to Rock Island county.
Mr. Titterington married Mis- Anna Dun
lap, daughter of Joseph Dunlap, on
March 2", 1841, who survives him with
seven children Mary, who resides at
home; Christina, the wife of James Yen
able, of Edgington township; Marshal
P., on the homestead, George, at home;
Sophie, wife of C M. Gould, of Edging
ton township, and John and Moses at
home. Mr. Titterington had accumu
lated considerable land and money
through honest endeavor and industry.

daughter of the sheriff, having expired at
1 o'clock this morning of paralysis of the
heart . The little girl was brought in
from Mr. and Mrs. Babcock's farm in
Black Hawk township, with the grip a
week ago last Friday but the disease had
so fattened itself upon her system that
nothing could relieve her, and though
she did not manifest serious indisposition
the gravest fears were entertained from
the first. Little Jessie was three years,
five months and nine days old and was
naturally the source of much hope and
joy to her parcnta, who are almost dis
tracted over their terrible atrliction The
funeral occurred at 8 o'clock this after
noon, Rev. W. S. Marquis officiating.
