Market Square Should
Paved by All Means.

Ttre Aaat's did not submit its proof
sheets to the Union of its article on the
paving of Market square and that piper
ts greatlf offended. "Tha Abqus has
renewed last year's clamor for tbe piving
of Market squire." it s?ys. and con
tinues to say: "The work if done at all
ahould begin on East and West Seven
teenth street at First Avenuc.and be carried
to Third. At the a ime tins Nineteenth
and Sixteenth street should be paved from
First to Third," etc. The Annua has no
objection to as many additional paving
improvements as the Vniin cau add, and
will cordially contribute its support to
all such as are rr ictict ble. but why
attempt to push the improvement in oie
direction by curtailing it in a matter more
important? There is no ptrt of tho city
where the necessity of pavement is to
apparent as on Market squire,
and while all our business streets
should be pa vol. thn most urgent
Deed, points to the business
centre of the city. Tne-e is no reason
why all tbe streets running out from the
river between Sixteenth and Twentieth
should not be paved this season, as far as
Third avenue at least. The Anors would
like also to witness the paving of Third
avenue from Twelfth t Twenty-fourth,
and tbe project is one that wc could very
well take into consideration, when cons
sidering the advancement to be made by
Rock Island in the line of substantial im
provements tbe coming season. But
while we grow emhusia tic and hopeful
over the street improvement project, we
should not fail to recognize tbe localities
most important to receive attention first.
Market square should first have tbe atten
tion of the council now. The other can
follow none too quickly.
Tbe Lnlon, in the saris spirit of mu
lishncss that leads it loineer at the Mar
ket square improvement, opposes
tbe Ninth street extension of
the syndicate street railway syt':m to
Rock liver, Ot-ciuse it would prefer, as it
says, to see the syndicate purchase and
improve the old Milan street railway.
What a wonderful chat ge of faiih baa
come over the Union, to be sure? A few
months ao when a Moline railway was
seeking rights in Rock Island that be
longed to the syndicate the Union said
the more street railways the belter, and
urged tbe council to grant conflicting
rights. Now that tbe syndicate, pursu
ing the independent course that has aU
ways characterized it, is anxious to se
cure a route of its owt to Rock river
over rights not alrea ly given to any
other company, tbe Union rises to object,
and says it would be hotter to buy the
road already built. The Unim does like
to be inconsistent, bo has to street im
provements and street railway extensions.
A SOLDIERS SUICIDE.

The soldiers in the ordnance detach
ment at Rock Island arsenal were treated
to a stnsaiiun shortly before noon today
by the filicide of one of their number.
Tbe soldiers had assembled for dinner in
tbe barracks, when Pilvate George Ileller
who had assembled with the others, sud
denly left the others acd went into his
sleeping apartment. A few minutes later
a pistol shot was hea-d acd tbe soldiers
rushing into th? room found Private nai
ler lying on the floor wiih blood oozing
from a hole ahove the left car, while a
smoking revolver by his side told the rest
of tbe story. He hail stood in front of a
looking glass and the art had been delib
erate, though bow long contemplated
will oever be known. PoBt Surgeon Craig
was summoned, and (rave it as his opinion
that death had been almost instantaneous,
tbe ball penetrating the brain.
Private Heller wis thirty-five years of
age, and is not believed to have any rela
tives hereabouts. He originally enlisted
on the island six years ag , having
re-enlisted about a year since. He was
quiet and sober and his act is shrouded
in mystery. He will be buried on tbe
A Nmoh ii the Bridee.

mode of proceedu e and went into Milan
at a gait tha-. aroused the na
tives in short order. The team
kicked up such a racket as it approached
the bridge that Gate Tender Sweeney
hustled out to investigate tbe cause, just
at tbe end nf tbe wagu struck the tall
gate bouse, shaking the building to such
an extent as to stop tbe clock banging on

The crisis bas been reached in tbe
trouble between the C. M. & St. P. ffl
cials and their agents and operators. As
far as Rock Island is concerned, the
gent remains with the company, and
the operators voluntarily surrender
their positions. Agent E. W. D. Holmes
this morning in commenting on the situa
tion said: "As far as I am individually
concerned, I shall remain in tbe employ
of the company until I am told to quit. I
am satisfied with the company aa long at
it ia satisfied with me. I have not had
my salary curtailed, nor hava I been
treated unfairly in anyway. As far as
the other men's grievances are concerned
I have nothing to say."
Mr. John Gaffey. the day operator,
tendered bis resignation tbia morning and
left tbe employ of the company. Night
Operator A. L Wagner will give np bis
position tonight. In short be will do no
more work for the G, M. & St. P. com
pany. Ruth have been faithful
men in the employ of the company, Mr.
Gaffey in particular, having worked for
the Milwaukee for manv years. Neither
has any personal grievance, as neither
has had his salary reduced. but both signed
tbe petition to the company for the resto
ration of the salarus of fellow operators
where reductions had been made, and
both feci in duty bound, therefore, to
sustain the action of tbe committee rep.
resenting the operators of the system.

The census bulletin just issued is
church statistics puts the Salvation army
down as one of the religious "denomina
tions," just like the Methodists. Baptists
and Presbyterians. For a comparatively
new denomination tbe Salvation army
makes a good showing. It has 829 regu
lar congregaliocs, with churches or hn'ls
for worship, though the number of mem
bers is placed at only 9,000 In Illinois
there are twenty-eight congregations with
a membership of 90:). The 'army" does
not seem to care much for material invest
ments, as the total value of its property
in tbe whole country ia placed at $37,000.

The three largest rafting firms on the
river are now McDonald Bros., of La
Crosse, Van Sant & Musser.of Muscatine,
and tbe L?CIaire Navigation company, of
Davenport. These three firms have up
wards of fifty raft boats, and those who
know point to the time when they will
control tbe rafting business on tbe uppr
Mississippi, and make sport of the idea
that the time can never come when the
pilots will force them to sell or retire from
business. It is predicted that within a year
the above firms will own two-thirds of
the raft boats, which insures them a mon
opoly of tbe business aa long aa it lasts.
