THE HOCK ISLAND AUG US. MONDAY, MAY 19. 1&90.
To the cold, backward weather of last
week, oar Lace Mitt sale could not be
said to have been a "howling success"
Our sales of course were LARGE, but
not as many were sold as we think
ought to have gone at the very low
quotations we named. Hoping for
better weather for the coming week we
shall continue the sale for another six
tlays, keeping our FIVE great leaders
at the same prices as quoted last week,
7c, 14c. 16c, 20c and 25c; above posi
tively cannot be matched elsewhere.
The regular lines of course remain
unchanged; the same cut prices of last
week continuing, and we confidently
assert that they are the best and cheap
est line of Lace Mitts ever put on this
market and buyers of last week will no
doubt add still farther to the supplies
To make the sale especially interest
ing, we shall place on sale this week 3

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
A Ilan They Have In Autoia That

Mr. Enil Warned c, a foymer Rock

Aurora, states that they have in the latter
city a mc tbod of providing for the hook
and ladder truck and police patrol wagon
which combines efficiency in both, sod
this too, without interfering with the
practical workings of either. In a con
venient locality in that city there is lo
cated a building in which are stationed
the book and ladder track and the police
patrol wagon. One team answers
for both and both are manned
by pol ce. The same alarm 6j8tem
is used lor both. Jf the police are wanted

in esse of fire the hook and ladder
truck h- sent out. The police, three in
number, assigned exclusively to duty on
the truck, when arriving at a fire are em.
powered with duties ot both police and
firemen, and they are therefore doubly
useful. In the absence of a belter plan
this mifht be established in Rock Island,
and a building suitable for the hook and
ladder truck, the general alarm plant and
the police headquarters be erected on
Flatiron square. The council must do
something tonight, and this idea is wor

that promises to lie popular with the

wives, mothers, sisters and widows of thp
members of the Modern Woodmen of
America. The importance of the institu
tion of this society lies in th fact that
tnis is the first of its kind. Nearly all
other secret organizations have their aux

An ImperlaatOrdlnanee tn be Ap

In--The Evans Frorraa, Its Xatnre
At tonight's meeting of the city coun
cil an ordinance is likely to be asked for
by Davis & Co. for right of way privi
leges for gas mains through some of the
most important avenues and streets and
alleys of the city . The petition is to be
for a ten-inch pipe on Moline avenue from
the city limits to Twenty-third street, at
which junction there are to be two
branches one to Third avenue, which is
to be followed to Fourteenth street, and
one south to Seventh avenue and thence
west to Sixteenth street, together with
necessary branches and feeders through
various side streets and alleys, such as
will enable thecompany to reach the bus
iness part of the city. M si of the alder
men have been already interviewed on
the subject, and all are very favorable to
the ordinance which will very likely be
Davis & Co , w ho apply for the ordi
nance, have formed an entirely new com
pany for the adoption of the Evans gas
proceis A capital stock of 150.000 has
been agreed upon, onesthird of which is
held by Davis & Co., one-third by Moline
manufacturers, while one-tiiir.! is to be
placed at the disposal of Rock Island cap
ital. The plan of the company includes
the entire remodeling of the present gas
plant in Moline and the erection of one of
similar dimensions beside it, thus afford
ing a total capacity of a million feet in
twenty-four houts. The gas is to be
utilized and supplied to consumers for
light, heating and cooking purposes. The
same system was recently adopted in
Burlington and when the ordinances were
applied fur the old gas company made
objections to the granting of the ordin
ances asked for, but the result of a meet
ing at which the remonstrances were pre
sented was no'.as the Gazette says "at all
calculated to weaken the favorable im
pression created by the Evans people in
their proposals and claims and those in
terested in the new company are as en
thusiastic as ever over the project."
The laying of the new mains will not
involve any disturbance of the Second
avenue pavement, the business houses on
that thoroughfare desiring the benefit of
the new system, being supplied from a
main which the compsny desires to lay
through the alley in the rear. The comi
pany may desire to cross Second avenue
at Sixteenth street, but beyond this there
is no purpose to tear up the pavement.
Messrs. Oliver Olsen, A. C. Dart and

To Give the Sack.
Two noblemen iu the reign of Maximilian
II (15t'4-ir7ti) ono a German, the, other a
Sianiard, who had each rendered a great
Ht-rviee to the emperor, asked the hand of his
daughter, Helena, iu marriage. Maximilian
said that as ho estenied them both alike it
was impossible to choose between them, and
therefore their own prowess must decide it,
but being unwilling to risk the loss of either
by engaging them in deadly combat he or
dered a large sack to l brought and declared
that be whoshould put his rival into it should
have his fair Helena.
And this w himsical combat was actually
performed in the presence of the imperial
court and lasted an hour. Tha unhappy
sipanisn nobleman was first overcome and
the Herman succeeded in enveloping him in
the sack, took him upon his back and laid
him at the emperor's feet.
This comical combat Is said to be the ori
gin of the phrase "give him the sack," so
common iu the literature of courting.

Something About the Office.
The position of sergeant-at-arms and
door-keeper of the senate pays $4.92(1. It la
considered particularly desirable because
of the patronage couuected with it. The
aergeant-at-arros is the executive officer of
the senate. Col Canaday has held the
position lor nine years. He was arrnat
ed from North Carolina to succeed "Dick"
Bright, at the instance of Senator Sher
man, who has used his influence ever
since keep tohim in-ofllce. Determined ef
forts have been made for more than a year
to have Col. Canaday removed, and a great
many charges against him have been
published in the newspapers, but they
have all been disproved. The political
pressure for the place has been very great,
and the fact that North Carolina is a Dem
ocratic state has rendered Col. Canaday'a
tenure of ofnoe very insecure for some
time. Nothing but his personal popularity
would have kept him in the place for ao
many years. .
