The property holders facing Market
square and in fact all of c ur business men
re anxious tbat the city txmncil with as
little delay as possible de rote itself to the
matter of paving Market square. This
should be accomplished as early the com
ing season as circumstances will permit.
Tbe ordinance committee has already
been instructed by vote of the council
to prepare tbe necessary ordinance, and
it is to be hoped that the matter will re-
celve the earliest possible attention.
There is no part of tbeciiy which attracts
to much attention, or wbsre neglect is to
apparent aa Market iquare, and its con
dition is a reflection for f. ood or bad on
the city. Not business ni?o alone suffer
from failure to give to it a more decent
appearance, but it is a s id commentary
on all our people and on none more than
Pave tbe square by all meant, and then
the foundation will be lali for more tub
atatitisl improvements in this important
part of lbe.city than have been before
contemplated. After Urn decided step In
the right direction is made, the bay wag
en and other vehicles dt positing refuse
ont the square should I e kept off tbe
square to the end that tb it it may at all
timet be kept clean and attractive rather
than an eyesore. We be pe to sei tbe
same transformation made in Market
square this year tbat were made in Spen

Tbe meaning of this is simply tbat the

As was naturally expected tbe Union
it opposed to the propoted extension of
the syndicate's lines oat Ninth ttreet to
Rock river. In commenting ia it yes
terday'a issue on the petition in circuit
lion by Mr. L. V. Eckhart on Ninth
ttreet, it remarks: "Mr. Walker and hit
associate! have discovered or Imagine
tbey have discovered, tbat they can build
a line on tbe Milan road to Sears' Park ts
cneap as they can purchase and reqqip
the Rock Island & Milan street railway,
and will then have a line much more
valuable on acconnt of tbe larger popu
lation tbat ia to be accommodated. From
tbia point of view tbey are undoubtedly
right, and yet there ia another point of
view well worthy of cocaidcraiion." Then
it goeB into a rambling recital of possibil
itiet to come in the way of the syndicate's
proposed moye-lbe present line to the
tower will tome day he on a paying basis
and it runs nearer the cemetery than the
other; the board of supervisors may not
look favorably on granting the right
prayed for beyond the city limits, and
cart running oa tbe old Ninth ttreet
road may f lighten horses. All these
points tbe Union says it m ikes that the
"difficulties in the way may he fairly un
derstand and met." The syndicate will
no doubt appreciate tbe Union t sugges
tions and act in accordance with them,
especially at the morolng paper's ad vice
to the ttreet railway peojlo has been of
tucb a valuable nature in the past. The
stimulation which the Union gave the
Chicago capitalista when they firit came
here i b their money and aougbt Invest
ment, is still quite clear in tbe minds of
the people. It will be remembered tbat
then, too, the Union made some sugges
tions about the bridge cars scaring horses
and the Elm street and Fourth avenue
and Ninth street lines proving impracti
cable, but it did not seem to make a deep
impr.tdon on tbe minds of tbe franchise
seeking or tbe franchise-giving powers.
Will it now?
THE HOSPITAL SITES.
W hat the naetara'ejoaamltte Arer
tainrd rruan Iheir InDperttoa ar Ik
Dr. Dunn of the coinmiliei of R.x-k
Ikland and Moline physicians on the sex
lection of a site for location of the new
twin city hospital, has furnished the Mo
line Ditpnteh with the following details
of the doctors' investigations:
The Reck (or C.rlon) property, just
east of Aueustana College was first In
spected. Tbe building was found to be
as wtll adapted for hospital purposes as
can readily be found in one not specially
dosigned for such uses. Some of the
gentlemen think that tho grounds are not
as Urge as are desirable for such an In
stitution. While the gentlemen were
there they met Dr. HasselqiiUt. who in
formed them that while tbe property was
originally held at $7.00 be understood
that It bail since been reduced to CO.oOO,
and might possibly he bought for f 8.000
cash. This price was deemed to place
it out of consideration, but In addition to
this the committee learned tbat tbe Aug
uUana College professors would object
to its being converted into a hospital,
and at Prof. Williamson is tbe agent to
the owners, there is no probability that
It could be secured, even ( wanted at
The committee then went to tbe Alday
property, which was found sadly out of
repair.' Mr. Alday has offered It for f 4,
000. The tract which Includes the brick
house is about 60 feet front on Sixth and
100 on Seventh avenues, while It it about
3i H i feet deep. Dr. Dunn Is anmewbat
inclined to look upon this as the most de
sirable of the places cflred, owing to the
lartre size of tbe grounds and the fart of
its location on the bluff, rendering It dry
at all timet. Ue aUo deems its being
aomewhat retired it an advantage, at It
would tbut be more free from noise and
confusion, Mr. Alday offers it for $4,
000, but it would require the expenditure
of quite a sum before It would be avail
able for a hospital.
The Wilson property on Moline ave
nue, in Sinnet's addition, was also visited.
This properly Is about 150 feet front by
tbe same depth. Tbe bouse U new and
could be at once occupied, with few alter-
Hon. It also baa tbe advantage of hav
ing a small building on tbe corner of the
lot, that could be used for cases that waa
deairahle to isolate from other patients.
Mr. Wilson has offered it for S3. 000 and
in case It Is to be used for a hospital, hat
aerreed to donate $500, thus making tbe
actual coat 4.500.
At ttated in yesterday s A rocs the
physicians have not, as yet, conferred as
to the various sites or agreed aa to pref
erences, but it is believed, nevertheless,
that they favor the Wilson property last
