An Important Duty for the Council
W III .et HT titl There be no He-
It at Any Kate.
1 be city council has an impoitant duty
to icrform tonight.
I : meets in adjourned session for the
puipose of acting upon proposals
for the paving extensions on Second ave
nm and on Twentieth street. How the
municipal body will treat the tempting
off -r of the Rock ford Construction com
pany depends of course upon the results
of the investigation which has been dili
gently pursued since the Monday even
ing meeting. The Rockford men appear
to be wide-awake progressive men, and
in this respect they do not differ from the
t j le of men who compose the ruling
sp rit of the present council. The All
ocs believes, as it stated last night, that
if the Rockford company can give ac-
ce Uable assurances that the quality of
th ; brick to be used in its work here In
tin evjent of its securing the contract
shall be equal to the s'andard, that the
pi vemeot shall be in by October 1, ami
tin. the 825,000 factory will beestab
li bed here, the council will do its duty
well by letting that company the con
These things should be taken into con
sideration and the council ought not to
aard the contract unless it receives sat
isfactory guarantee of a good job within
t ie specified time. The Argus would
dislike to see any unnecessary delay in
swarding the contract. ft would rather
1 refer to know that the council had
swarded the contract to some other bid-
( er than the Rockford company than that
the danger of delay be countenanced.
.""here has been a loDg cherished hope in
I he minds of those disposed to oppose a
ontinuation of our present system of im
provements, that the council might be in
luenced to defer final action with refer -nc'
to the contracts until some step may
"e taken that will lay the entire matter
over until the incoming council, with
whom the obstructionists hope to be able
to wield an inUience suffl.ient to cut
short the good work of the present city
fathers and throw the city back into its
old condition of peaceful, indolent stag
nation. It behooves the present council
therefore not to countenance too much
delay if it would have the credit of order
ing as one of its last official acts a con
linuation of the permanent street im
pro ve men ts.
Then let us prayerfully hope that the
attitude of the caucuses of both parties
the present week will be such that the
new council, no matter which party ha
the administrating influence, will take up
the good work of the outgoing council
and rarry it onward.
Mest-rs Mead and Buttcrworth, of the
Rorkford Construction company, called
on Supt Sudlow, of the R I & P. yes
terday, and asked him that should they
determine to establish a plant at Sears,
what his road would give them in the wav
of a switch. Mr. Sudlow assured the
gentlemen that the HI Jt P. would pro
vide every facility desired.

The ice men of Rock Inland have reor
ganized their pool and put the price of
the frigid substance up twice what it was
last year, as will be seen by their scale
appearing over their signatures else
where. Geo. Btrker & Co., Geo Lam
bert and .1 . Siegrist, who practically con
trol the ice business of Rock Island, have
entered into an agreement that the
wholesale prices this year shall be thirty
cents per huudred pounds, and the retaii
forty to fifty cents. Last year the ruling
prices were just one half this amount.
But the Rock Island dealers have ap
parently taken advantage of the discour
aging outlook and the prospect of a fam
ine that prevailed all winter, and up to
within three weeks ago, and have regu
lated their prices on the basis of what
might have been expected, but aie not
considering the freeze up that occurred
toward the latter end of winter and gave
all who cared to a chance to get an abun
The firms composing the ice combine
claim that they expect an unusual de
mand for ice this season, and they feel
justified in shoving the price up. The
great majority of the people of Rock Is
land will look upon the action of the ice
men ttt an imposition, and it may be
rightly regarded as such. If the con
sumers in Rock Island ait to be greeted
in this manner n- soon as the riyer opens,
there wHI be any numher of private ice
bouses erected next winter, and people
will go into harvest on their own account

and then attempted to rob the girl. The
two finally escaped and May went on her
way toward the site of the world's fair
rejoicing, while Weaverling complained
at police headquarters of the episode, aad

Supt. of Schools S. S Kemble is in re
ceipt of a programme of the Northern
Illinois Teachers' aoclalion meeting to
be held in this city Friday and Saturday,
April 25 and 2(1. Supt. Kemble is chair
man of the executive committee, while
Principal L C. Dougherty is railroad
secretary. The Friday afternoon session
is to be held in the high school and the
Friday evening and Saturday morning
sessions in the Central Presbyterian
church. Provision has also been made
for a visit to Rock Island arsenal. It is
expected there will be an attendance of
150 school workers.
The trenchant argument made by Supt.
W. C. Brown, of this city, before the
bouse committee on railroads at Des
Moines last week, was undoubtedly the
stroke that won the dsy for the railroad
men. The committee have, by a vote of
8 to 2, decided to report the 2 cent fare
bill with the recommendation that it be
indefinitely postponed. This practically
determines that there will be no legisla
tion this session adverse to the railroads,
unless it is a bill to empower the com
missioners to fix and enforce joint rates.
Popular sentiment, which in Iowa two
tears ago was so strong against railways,
has undergone a great change. Some
new roads are wanted in Iowa, but they
were practically out of the question while
the spirit which dominated the legislature
two years aeo continued in force. Bura
two year's a term.
The New Law Regulating the
The Member to be Elected this
Npringwlll Take Their Chanera on
Bernrinc More Than One Year.
With the approach of the township
elections the following law euacted by
the last legislature which changes the
term of half the members of the incom
ing hoard, and of all the supervisors to
be elected thereafter from one year to
two, will be real with interest:
Section 1. Be it enacted by the peo
ple of the state of Illinois, represented in
the general assembly That the supervi
sors elected at the annual town meetings,
in their respective towns in the counties
now under township organization, on the
first Tuesday ot April, 1890, (except in
the county of oRk) and in counties whicb
may hereafter adopt township organiza
tion, the supervisors elected at the first
annual town meetings in such counties
thereafter, shall, at the first regular or
special meeting of the county boards of
such counties thereafter, be divided into
two classes, to consist of one-half of the
members of such board, as near as may
be. The supervisors so to he classified
to be selected by lot: Provided, that the
supervisors of any town having a repri
sentati.en of two or more members shall
be separately selected and classified by
lot as to be divided among the two classes
as near equally as may be. The first
class of supervisors shall serve for a
period of one year, and the second class
for the period of two years, or until their
successors are elected aad qualified:
Provided, that where such county board
is constituted of odd numbers, the small
er fraction of Mich board shall constitute
such second class, and thereafter at the
expiration of the term of each supervis r
his successor shall be elected and serve in
such county hoard for the term of two
years, or until his successor shall have
been duly elected and qualified, in the
manner now provided by law.
Section 2 When a new town shall
be created in, or addpd to, any county,
which is now or may hereafter be under
township organization (except in the
county of Cook) or any town in such
county shall become entitled to
additional representation in the coun
ty board thereof, auch additional
m mber or members shall be class
ified by lot in such manner as to
maintain the numerical equality of each
class as near as may be, (having regard
to the provisions of section one of this
act), and thereafter the successors of
sucn supervisors shall be elected for the
term of two years, or until their succes
sors are duly elected and qualified: Pro-
tided, that where a new town is created
by tbe union of two or more towns, the
terms of the supervisors of tbe towns so
united shall expire at the next annual
town meetings thereafter, and the super
visor or supervisors of such consolidated
town sliall be elected at said town meat
ing and classified in tbe county board to
serve for the term, and in the manner
herein provided in the case of new towns.
Section 3. All acts or parts of acts
inconsistent with the provisions of this
act are hereby repealed.
Approved June 4. 1889
The intention of the new law is no
doubt to provide for having some exper
ienced members of the board always held
over, and tbe drawing of lots to decide
the long and short terms at the next ses
sion only is in order to get tbe alternate
system fairly working. After this year
there, will be no such action necessary.
Remember the Royal Hand Bell Rti.g-
ers this evening at Harper's theatre. It
may be many years before jou can hear
again tbe music of tbe bells. There is a
great demand for seats. The company
has the reputation of being the most ar
tistic and skillfdl in their line that ever
traveled. We have many musical com
panies but few bell ringers. The musi
cal talent necessary to make a success in
the bell ringing musical line must i e
spe.-ial. Come and listen to:
"Tbe evenin.' hells, those ctcdIiir belle,
How many a Uk their mualc tells."
If Harper's theatre is not filled to its
full capacity we shall be mistaken in our
estimate of the musical tastes of the peo
pie of Rock Island .
