Tbe new council is all right. Like the
municipal body immediately preceding it,
it is progressive. Its tendency is to en
courage all tbiogs that give promise of
the city's advancement. This was shown
at its first regular session last night, to
an extent that was unanimity itself.
The ordinance of Davis & Co. for the
privilege of laying new gas mains and
connections in the city as described fully
in last nigh's Anaus, was unanimously
passed. Tbe ordinance was presented by
Aid. Lsrkio, of the ordinance committee,
who waimly urged its psBsnge. Aid.
Schroeder a so spoke in favor of the pas
sage of tbe ordinance without delay.
Mr. W. II. Judge, superintendent of
the Rock Island Gas company, asked
permission to addrtss the council, and
stated that us a matter of justice to tbe
old company and to the public, the ordi
nances sought for should be at least re
ferred to a committee for action at a fu
ture meeting. The present company whs
paying taxe here of $100 per month. On
coming hero thirteen years ago the com
pany foiind gas rated at $4.50 per thous
and feet, which was immediately reduced
to 3. and after that a sliding scale of $3
to f 2 was a lopted, and more subsequent
ly a rate of fl. 50 had been fixed. Mr.
Judge Held that the ordinance now pro
posed was the result of a still hunt, and
that there was something more behind
it than appeared on the face of it.
Aid. Scbroeder made a few more re-
marks in endorsement of tbe Davis & Co.
Mr. VTm. Jackson said a few words in
brief of the proposed ordinance which
was chiefly for fuel purposes, though heat
and liht were also contemplated as a
matter of course. It was necessary be
cause of certain options to have the ordin
nee passed tonight if at all. He then
replied to tome personal accusations Mr.
Judge had made with reference to the
presi nt plant in Moline.
Mr. Judfe was again beard and he de
clared the Dtvis & Co. ordinance a bull-
lozing sehi'ine, behind which there was
something more than the council had an
idea of. havis&Co. bad made over
tures for the purchase of the Rock Island
g is com pa ly, but not succeeding, they
had cnine in with this ordinance as a

the ordinance should not pass at once.
Aid. Qeigtr and Larkin also spoke in the
oterests of the ordinance's passage, and
on its being put In-fore the council it
Aid. La: kin presented an ordinance
allowing t lie R. I. & P. railroid to ex
tend a switch on Thirteenth avenue to
the river front and along the river to tbe
abattoir and fertilizing works and thence
oto SoutL Rock Island.
Messrs. Oliver Oisen, A. C. Dirt and
others spoke in the interests of the ordi
nance as essential to the success of a
movement on tbe part of the Citizens
mproveuent association to induce new
manufactories to locate here.
Aid. Bi ncher was the only alderman to
raise objection to the immediate passage
of the ordinance, and be desired that it
be laid over one meeting for investigas
lion, but his motion to that effect was
lost, and the ordinance was then passed
by unanii ious vote.
The council also approved the Moline
avenue raving ordinance with certain
amendments, and received and had
referred an ordinance for the pav
ing of Market square. Tbe council
heard wit h n.uch interest a talk from Mr.
Rockwell, of the Somerville fire
alarm and police patrol electric system,
who demonstrated by facta and figures
the absolute necessity of such an advan
tage to any growing city. Towns in
Illinois of 2,500 and 3.0()0 inhabitants
were adopting this system, and a city of
over 5,0(0, without a systematic fire and
police a arm, was an exception in the
west. Efficiency in a nre department
was essi ntial to success in securing new
and valued industries, and Rock Island
must so improve if it would successfully
compete for outside enterprises with

Bert Malcolm, of Moline, accomplished
(he feat of walking to Geneseo Sunday
morning. lie was accompanied on his
trip by Prof. J. W. Mclntire and John
Ullmark. The trio started fram the de
pot in Moline at 6 a. m. They arrived at
Colona at 7:50, where thtv rested a few
minutes. Starling out again they contin
ued tbe walk to Geneseo without resting.
Prof- Mclntire acted as judge. A large
crowd including many from Moline was
at the depot in Geneseo when the pedes
trians arrived, which was at 10:53 seven
minutes ahead of time.
Three cheers were given them when
they arrived at the depot, and the trio
then walked to tbe hotel and washed up,
returning to Moline at 7:35 in tbe even
ing. When the train arrived the depot
was completely packed with the friends
of Bert, and all were anxious to get a
glimpfe of the plucky young man. Tbe
$25 in money was promptly paid over to
Bert on his arrival at bis destination.
Mr. Johnson, with whom the wager was
made, took the morning train up and
passed tbe boys on the road. Consider
able money changed hands the side bets
being very numerous. It is expected
that other "walks" will be arranged soon.

to Sleet Tuesday, Jane lOth for All
Purposes This Hornloa's Political
There wae a republican love feast in
Rock Island today, at which Postmaster
Wells, by virtue ot a suspension of the
civil service rules for his special benefit,
presided. It was held in the reading
room at tbe Harper House, the boss
occupying a seat at the bead of the table,
and after all tbe little bosses had been
seated all republicans not strictly mem
bers of tbe boss' confidential council
were invited in. Influential republicans
n Rock Inland were conspicuous for their
absence, and with the exception of those
who are anxious to go for!) as warriors
nto the bloody field political, Ross Wells
was the only representative of the party
in Rock Island. First there was a roll
call of tbe big boss' lieutenant! from the
various townships, and each in turn as
bis name was called if present was
obliged to contribute bis proportion to an
experience meeting. The almost unan
imous answer was: "We republicans
are all right in our township."
This monotonous response soon lies
came tiresome to little boss l'ayne,
and when Zuma was called he said, "the
sflters are all right in tbe upper end of
tbe county." Tbis caused Wells to blush
clear up to the roots of his hair and he
reproved bis lieutenant with the admoni
tion that "we are not out on a campaign
for females, we are after voters." When
Edgiogton was called Dc. Boughton
reported that Elgington was "all right
with as many high aspirations as ever," and
he waa going to sty more whsn he caught
Bro. Crawford's eye which bronght bim
to an abrupt stop.
An exchange of opiaioa as to the best
irae for holding the republican county
convention followed, after which the big
boss ordered the doors closed and be
called his sworn lieutenants ab.tut him in

The committee decided to hold but one

conventions, and decided upon Tuesday,

The streets are full of candidates today
and a man whose political proclivities are
not well known is likely to have his ear
talked off. Many an innocent, non-as
piring citizsn has been buttonholed three
different wavs at once by as many differ
ent politicians before he was able to dis
cern tbe cause of his treatment. Pearsall,
Payne, Donaldson,' Harris, Crawford,
Boughton. Cozad, Lambert, Campbell,
Kohler, Southwell and Cox have all been

more modest than others in their manner
of dealing, a heap of work has been done
in a short time today. It might be said.
too, that not tbe least conspicuous
among the reorganized leaders of the g.

ing the coming campaign.
At the Theatre.
Zanzic, the magician, appeared at liar
per's theatre last evening in a perform1
ane of his remarkable skill as a sleight of
hand artist. In many respects Zinzic is
the equal of Keller, while all his exhibi
tions show bim to be a master of his art.
A number of handsome presents were
given away and the exhibition as well as
presentation will be repeated tonight.
A feature of the entertainment not
contemplated in the programme, was a
dispute which arose between an ex-alderman
and tbe magician as to the fairness
of the latler's mode of performing tricks.
The ex-alderman, who went by invitation
upon tbe stage to bind tbe magician
with cords so that he could not free him
self, made a claim there and then that
fraud was employed, and in response to
tbis a challenge came to the ex-alderman
accompanied by a wager of $100 to bring
three of his friends tonight and tie Zan
zic so that he cannot extricate himself in
ten minutes. The ex-alderman accepted
the challenge, but whether or not he ap
pears is to be seen .
