Practical Plan for Providing It with
Profit to the Project ero.-ISoine Monad
Rock Island is is dire need of another
theatre. Tais fact has been apparent for
some time. It is needed as a character
istlc featuro of a growing city. It is
needed in the interests of improvement.
It is needed as a mean of keeping and
amusing our own people at borne. It is
neenea ai present apparently as essential
to Rock Island's having an opera bouse
or theatre at all. It has for some time
been realize 1 by many that Rock Island
ought to have two such places of amuse
ment. Time was when this city pointed
with pride, ttmply justiSed to as pretty a
little theatre as there was in the state, but
time, too, his brought changes; the opera
bouse has run down, and instead of the
improvements which were promised in
the theatre this season, comes with au
thority thf assertion that the house
will in till probability be nailed
up the coning se.isin. Exceedingly
gratifyiny news that to a community that
is just begir ning to realized that it is on
the wave of popular advancement, isn't
it? But wt at is Hock Island going to do
about it? There is but one thing to do;
build a new theatre.
The plati is not impracticable. A
thoroughly conservative business man
was talking on the subject this morning
and showed very conclusively how a syn
dicate could be formed to purchase a site
and erect a handsome building not for
a theatre alone, but contiining one on
the first floor of modern design though
handsomer than anything io the three
cities, but stores, offices and suites of
rooms from wbich a handsome revenue
could be dt rived. The plan was to put
t where it would be convenient both to
the cars from Davenport and Moline and
also in the properly considered business
portion cf the city.
There are smart alecks in every pur-
suasion of human existence. You meet
them on ever path and byway of life.
You find tiem on foot, on horseback
and on wheels. It is to this latter class
that attention was more particularly
drawn by an incident of last evening.
Every man who rides a bicycle is not a
smart aleck, not by any means, but there
are men who ride byc'cles who are smart
alecks, as v-as fully demonstrated in the
event herein alluded to. It has be
cornea pleasant custom of late for the
local possessors of wheels to get out on
the Second avenue pavement and enjoy
themselves for several hours, skimming
over the sm oth surface. The practice is
not a disagreeable one; in fact it gives life
o the thoroughfare, and therefore af
irds pleasure alike to the merchant, the
citizen and wheelman. But like all priv
ileges, it has been abused. Recently
some of the bicyclists have taken to rid
ing close to the street cars, catching hold
of the railings on the open cars and let
ting the cars pull them along, and when
the drivers object, as they should, the
wheelmen become saucy and fresh and eay
smart things. Last night a driver on the
blue line snapped his whip at one of these
fresh young- men who was hanging on to
the car and drove him away, whereupon
another rode up close to the car and
kept so near as to almost touch the car
for several blocks, thus attempting to
taunt and ttntal;k-f the drivtr, who, how-
ever, got the Itetter of the fresh young
man by paving no attention to him. If
the driver bail stopped the car and given
the fellow a sound thrashing, there were
passengers in the cur who, would have
cheerfully paid any fines incurred. The
habit alluded t. is an annoyance, not
only to tl e drivers, bill passengers jn
the car, and should be stopped by the
police. The street car company has a
right to di-mand this protection, for if
this fresh young man of last evening had
collided with the car and had been in
ured, he would no doubt have expected
damages from the company, and so it
would be with others who might meet
with misha and this is a case where the
company ould not have been at all to
The wort of preparing the foundation
for the fi unttiin in Speucer square has
been in progress the pact week under the
superintenlence of John Lloyd, and it is
expected that the work of placing the
fountain in position will begin on Tues
day. The balance of the ornaments will
likely be received the latter part of next
week. The ornamentation of t' e vases,
figures and atatutary has all been provided
for with tome trifling exceptions. Mr
T. F. Caty and George Sutcliffe have
agreed to (mint and ornament the Harper
vaBc; Rabu & Co. the Huber & Wagner
vases, Mr A. Lemburg; the Sudlow vase;
Druckmilh'r & Co, the Dart, Potter &
Hurst vast s. John C. Adams; the Spen
cer vases; the stag and lions will be
painted by Mr. U. M. Whifflo; the statue
of Hebe bv J. N. Hardy. The remain
ing articleii will be ornamented by some
of our oth ;r painters.
From the arrangements as abovo it will
be seen that the prospect is for some
v;ry fine vork in the line of ornamenta
tion. Our painters will nave a nne op
portunlty to display their decorative
skill, and we have no doubt they will inr
prove the occasion. Mr. John Mager,
who made the seats for the square, baa
promised to make an ornamental railing
around th 3 drinking fountain.

While the Wallace & Co. shows were
in Rock Island July 11, it will be remcm
bered that Dick Weldon. a fine working
confidence man, was arrested by Sheriff
Silvia at the instigation of Detective J. T.
Nerris, of Springfield. Ohio, who had
been following the show for that purpose,
Weldon having duped a farmer at Greene,
Iowa, for $1 .000. Through the arrest by
Mr. 8il vis this amount was recovered.and
the prisoner liberated, much to Sheriff
Silvis' disgust. But it ssems that the
rascals had barely got their skirts
cleared of Rock Island until they
again commenced their fine work and
succeeded in catching another sucker.
this time for $1,500. Detective Norris
got onto the game and got after the "con"
men, though they bad threatened his life
while here if be pursued them further.
On Tuesday Sheriff Silvis received the
following dispatch from Detective John
T. Norris dated at Matteson, 111 :
Come to Joliet on first train prepared
to be absent three days. I bear all ex
penses. The sheriff left that night for Joliet
and there mul Norris who told him of the
late work by Weldon and his pals des
cribed further on, and that the show would
be in Ottawa the following day. The
two officers accordingly left that night
for Ottawa and the next morning bright
and early Sheriff Silvis again had his
hands on Weldon. We will permit the
Ottawa Ftee-Trader to tell the rest:
Elvi Martelle, a French Canadian, liv
ing at Kankakee, was fleeced out of
$1,500 by "con." men following Wallace
& Co.'8 circus. The men got MarleKe
nto a little eanie bv wbich he could make
soifhe money and at the proper moment
took the $1,500 and skipped. A detective
was employed in the case and tracked the
men to Macomb, JU-, but they smelled a
rat, so to speak, catching the detective
and giving him a good trouncing. De
tective Norris was then employed and
came to Ottawa Wednesday - to arrest
Weldon. Norris well knew that if he
showed himself in the city the gang
would skip, so he sent for bheriff Sil
vis. of Rock Island, to identify Wel
don. Deputy Sheriff Reed was fur
nished a minute description of the
man and at once began search. He
spotted Weldon on Main street yester
day morning, traced htm past the
court house where Silvis was concea.ed
ready to identify him. The identifica
tion was complete, and Reed pushed out
and arrested the man, placing him be
hind the bars at the county jail.

agers, can scarcely be termed accidents
In backing out from the landing at Clins
ton, the pilot undertook to run stern
foremost through the draw of the bridge
This piece of folly might have resulted
less disastrously had not the wind
veered around and struck the boat just
as it entered the draw. The side of
the boat and the wheel struck
the bridge pier with great force. The
excitement that ensued bid fair to become
a panic, and it was with the greatest diffl
culty that some of the people were re
strained from plunging into the river. A.
R. Drury in a fine frenzy of excitement
called for "life preservers" and swung his
arms around like a Dutch wind mill. The
crash of the breaking wheel and terrible
grinding noise as the boat struck the pier
made it plausible that the side of the boat
had been staved in, and that it would
rapidly sink. Happily these fars were
Dot realized, and the principal damage
done was to the wheel. After some tie
lay it was repaired sufficiently to make
the home trip.
The lluiap Boat.
A wail of complaint is burdening the
air in the vicinity of First avenue and
Seventeenth street. It is all caused bv
the city dump boat which is anchored at
the levee there. It is claimed that a fear
ful stench, prejadicial to the public
health, permeates the atmosphere and to
a degree particularly offensive to the
olfactory nerves. Health Commissioner
Eyster says he has investigated the jus
tice of the plaint, however, and thinks it
has hardly sufficient merit to require of
ficial recognition or necessitate a removal
of the boat. The box is air tight, and
should any odor escape, it could only be
when the lids are raised to receive the
refuse. At such times, however, a disin
fectant is employed which, thoroughly
deodorizes the smell. The city refuse has
for the psst few years been dumped be
low the city, and a large reduction in ex
pense is cited In justification of its pres
ent location, although the public health
would be a paramount consideration
should it be conceded that its operation
was at all noxious. The health commis
aioner says If there is any disagreeable
smell in the locality mentioned, it ema
nates from a sewer instead of the dump

The Davenport Democrat states that

and the inclosing wall will then be fin
ished. It is a twelve foot cofferdam
built of plank driven down to the rock
bottom of the river, braced with string
ers running traversely to the planks, and
the two sides being connected by rods
of iron bolted at either end. The space
between the sides is filled in with mud
dredged from the bank of the government
island. The upper bulkhead is braced
upon its lower side by a number of cribs
filled with rock and sunk. About sev
enty men are furnished employment at
resent. A twelve-inch centritugal pump
is in place, and it is hoped to have it at
work by Aug. 1. It will then lay bare
the bed of the river enclosed by the dam
n about seventy two hours. Not long
after August 1 building operations will
be commenced and the- walls will rise
rapidly. About 600 yards of the Joliet
imestone to be used in their construction
is on hand now, having been unloaded
near the arsenal building. Some 3,800
yards will be needed in all. The big
blocks are all fitted and marked, and wiii
go into place rapidly.
The Democrat continues: Between the
cofferdam and pier is a , space of eight
feet. This will he filled with trestle work
and a track which has already been laid
along the cribs below the upper bulkhead
will be extended upon it. A steam der
rick will lower the blocks of stone from
the bank to trucks upon the track below,
which will then be run out to the pier
upon the track. Here four crane der
ricks worked bv hand, two on each side
of the bridge, will receive the blocks and
place them in position. By the middle ot
November it is hoped to have the lasf

The temporary bulkhead at the power
pool has been repaired and yesterdav
for the first time the foundation of the
new draw, which has been covered so
ong, was laid bare. Tremendous ob
stacles were overcome in the work of
repairing the break, as this had to be
lone when the river was at its recent
high stage. The water poured through
the aper'.ure in a boiling torrent, and the
work of sinking cribs and planking them
required an immense amount of exertion
and no little skill in management. About
twenty-five teams and sixty men are at
work at this point, the teams and a ma
jority of the men being engaged in remov
ng the mud and sand wbich has washed

of this debris to be removed, a large part
of it the finest ot building sand.
