A Short hut Busy Session of the
Tha M vine ar the Electric IflstM
Tarer-..The Street Railway Cea-
hi,.i other Matter Dlstassrd.
La t evening's regular monthly meet
ing of the city oouoHl was short, and its
actio i prompt, and without a great deal
of di- cussion, though some oratory was
throv n in for spice The present munic
ipal t ody has through its experiences of the
mhsi ear got into such a shape that it
can handle more important questions in
a single night and make less russ about
them than former councils have done in
three or four meetings.
Aid. Corken, of the light committee,
madf a report on the removal of the
electric light tower at the corner of Sec
ond avenuo and Seventeenth street, to
enane Mitchell & Lynde to erect their
proposed new building at that corner
The lower. Aid. Corken said, would cost
the c ty $100 to take it down and con-
aiderible more to move it. He favored
the rating of the tower and the substitu
tion of low lights throughout the busi
ness portion of the city. The matter
was t nally put in the hands of the fire
and light committee and the mayor with
power to act.
Tb matter of the conflict of rights be-
tweet the Union Street Railway com
pany and the Moline Electric on Fifth
aveni:e between Eighteenth and Twenty-fir
t streets, which has been before the
council before, came up. The Union
Stree Railway company as is known, al
ready has a track there with double track
pnvil ;ges, and the council in giving the
electr c people their franchise into Rock
Islan( , gave them the same rights over
that tart of Fifth avenue which was 9aN
isfaci ry to all concerned, but when
Supt. Srbnitger read the Union com
pany's ordinance for its lower Fourth
aveni e and Ninth street extensions he
found a clause there which was not read
the nisjht 'f its passage in the council and
hicb stipulated that as s condition of
tbe ( ompanv receiving the additional
ightt prayed f Of on Fourth avenue and
Nintb street.it should abandon its double
track rights over that portion of Fifth
ayenie where the Electric road Is to run
paraDel. Briefly stated, this provision
gave he Electric people double track
rights there, but restricted the Union
com ptny, already there, to a single track
prlvil ;ge. Supt. Schnitger would not ac
cept the ordinance in this shape though
tbe mayor bad signed it, and an inquiry
of tie ordinance committee as to
how me peculiar section found its way
into the ordinance failed to elicit
any light on the subject. Not one of
tbe alicrmen knew bow it happened, and
neitlxrdid the mayor. The citv attor
ney k iew it came into his hands to be
copieil with the ordinance on a type
writirg machine, hut how it did he could
not si.y. He supposed it was in when it
pssse 1, but tbe ordinance committee say
it wa not, and tbe other members of tbe
coum il have no remembrance ot having
heard It read. But it was there and the
only -ray to amend it was by action of
the c luncil.
Su t Schnitger therefore a-ked that
bis d uble track rights be restored, and
be ag eed to consent to a provision in the
ordln ince that he would not avail him
self of them as long as tbe Moline Elec
tric i ail way had similar rights on that
partii ular street. A proposition was also
subm tied from Mr. Ouyer, of tbe Moline
Elect if company, agreeing to giye up tbe
double track rights held by bis company
there on con it ion that if a double track
was tut in. tbe two companies could op
erate it jointly. It wa9 sppareut there
would be do serious misunderstanding
bet wt en tbe two companies if tbe council
took .he right stand, and Aid. Scbroeder
presented a resolution covering tbe
grour d pretty effectually that a section
be su st it uteri for the objectionable one in
tbe Union Railway company ordinance
that tbe two companies jointly construct
and naintsin a double track over that
part of Fifth avenue in question which
Tb i petition from tbe Twentieth street
property holders, asking the council to
abandon its paying enterprises on that
stree-. as spoken of in tbe Argus of last
night made its appearance, and Aid.
Howi.rd made a motion that il be tabled.
Numerous seconds were heard, but Aid.
Edwtrda' motion that the petition be
courteously received, prevailed. It is to
be bt'ped that it will be tbe last of it.

pletely reversing the result of a year ago.
After it became known that Capt. Rambo
was elected mayor the people held a gen

headed by a brass band paraded the vari
ous streets of tbe town, bells were ring
ing and tbe steamboats at the landing fired
up and blew their whistles as they never
did before. An immense crowd assem
bled In front of the residence of tbe newly
elected mayor and serenaded him upon
the happy results of tbe day. Capt.
Rambo made a speech.

The committee on public buildings and

of representatives favorably on bills for a
$75,U00 government building at Rock Is
land, and a $100,000 building at Daven
port. The special dispatches to the Chi
cago papers from Washington indicate
that both bills will probably pass con
gress. Davenport is assured of getting
her building, and if she can, represented
by a congressman in another city forty
miles away. Rock Island with its own
ought to surely win, if the republican
