The brick is being distributed along
Twentieth street south of Fourth avenue
by the Rockford Construction company
for the completion of the paving contract
warded to that company last spring.
The work here, as on lower 8econd ave
nue, will be pushed as rapidly as possible,
with the opening of 8priog weather and
will be finished it is hoped without the
interruptions and delay that characterized
the work last Summer. The paving con
tract awarded Edwards & Wateh on Fourth
avenue, Twenty-third street and Fifth
avenue to the Moline line.will be entered
upon at once and the contractors prom
ise to have the paving completed to Thir
ty fifth street the coming season. This
will give Rock Island several miles of as
nice pavement as can be found anywhere,
and apropos of the subject of paving it
should be stated that the Market square
job is one the people are looking for this
ees8on and the council will cause much
public disappointment if it neglects its
duty with regard thereto. This import
ant portion of the city should receive the
attention suggested at once.
Then there is in circulation a petition
for the paving of .Third avenue Irom
Twenty-fourth street west to Ninth street
at least, and possibly further. This is an.
other excellent idea and it is to be hoped
the council will act favorably upon it
when it comeB before them. So far the
municipal body has given its encourage
ment to all such propositions and peti
tions, and it is not to bs expected that
there will be any change in the rule now.
One of Rock Island's greatest advance
ments has been in the way of park im
provements. The transformation made
in Spencer square last season is the
object today of pride of all our citi
zens, and Commissioner Jackson has al
ready bis plans under way for the com
pletion of the park. The stone cutters,
Messrs. Joseph Pearson, Thomas Cox,
Will Stephens, John Stephens,
John McConochie and Wm.
McConochie. who have been at
work several months on the designs which
are to ornament the entrances to the
park on Second and Third ave
nues, and Nineteenth and Twen
tieth streets, haye finished their
work and they have succeeded in
carving out six beautiful pieces of
granite. The ornamental arches for" the
corner entrances are also practically
ready and the eagle from the Island work
men for the west triangle has been re
ceived. The base on whicn it is to rest
wili be put together in a few days by
Lark in & Stephens.
The excavation of Garnsley square has
placed that park in condition to command
attention early in the season, and dona
tions of ornaments may sVesdy be said
to be in order.
While progressive minded piople are
bestirring themselves as to the best meth
ods to pursue to further the
city's progress and prosperity,
there is one graat matter which
Rock Island has always neglected
which ought to command the attention
this spring if ever tenement houses. It
is the crying necessity of the hour in
Rock Island. Many families which prop
erly belong to Rock Island are today liv
ing in Davenport and Moline because this
city offers them no inducements in way
of houses, and they, therefore, cannot
abide with us, though their business and
home interests are here. Tns Abgus has
learned of several houses to be erected
the coming season for tenement purposes.
George Scheider, for instance, having de.
cided to erect two on Meline avenue, east
of Twenty-third street, but this will be
but a drop in the bucket toward attain
ing the one great end sought. Twenty
five to 30 Louses bringing from $12 to
$20 per month, pleasantly situated,
would all find ready tenements What
will Rock Island do about the matter?
Will people who are abundantly able to
provide these improvements do ao. or
will the city continue to obscure its own
A Canoao Caafcet.
Undertaker Boies, of Davenport, has
received the double casket for the late
Dr. and Mrs. J. J. Tomson, of that city.
It is a wonderful sight. In width it is
forty inches, length six feet, nine inches,
trimmed in black cloth, with full silver
decorations, glass top and weighs 150
pounds. There are not over two such
caskets made in the United States a year,
this one being the first one brought to
Iowa. Mr. Boies telegraphed at 10 o'clock
Thursday to ascertain if one could be
obtained, a reply was received, and at 2
o'clock a telegraphic order was given Hill
& Co., Chicago. The casket was manu
factured in five hours from receipt of
order, and received Friday morning,
which is remarkable in the extreme.
However, the greatest difficulty has
arisen, as the casket cannot be gotten in the
Tomson residence and a large platform
will be constructed joining the porch on
which it will be placed and the bodies
brought out and laid in it.) '
This has already excited great interest.
Even the hearse had to be abandoned, and
a flat-top wagon will convey the remains
to the First Presbyterian church, where
the services will be held at 3 o'clock an-
TEE PRINTERS' STRIKE.
Tae Dmaa"reiaeot Betweea the He
llae rmfcllakers m4 Their mum Met
lie. The executive committee of the Twin
City Typograpl.ieal union met with Mr.
Euhn, of the Western Plowman, and Mr.
Des Aulnier, of the Porter Printing com
pany Thursday evening. The matters at
issue were finally compromised, the em
ployers agreeing to accede to the demand
of $13.50 per week for day work, and 30
cents per thousand for book work, , with
the understanding, however, that tie
work on the periodicals printed in these
offices shall not be regarded as book'
work, but shall be for at the same rate as
evening newspaper work, 28 cents.
Mr. Kuhn asked for and succeeded in
having inserted in the agreement a clause
We agree to pve preference to union
printers, except in cases where, in our
judgment, it is contrary to our intrests to
In this shape the agreement was sign
ed by the WesUrn Plowman people. Mr.
Des Aulnier did not affix the signature of
the Porter Priming company, preferring
to wait till conference could be had with
Mr. Porter, who is ii at present. The
agreement will doubtless be satisfactory
to him. It is somewhat unusual for
union printers t agree to work with
"rata" under any circumstances when
union men c in be secured, but the in
serted clause quoted above may possibly
some day bring about such an anomaly.

The telephone -wires have been crossed
in certain portions of the city for several
days past, and th ; consequence is the
utter demoralizxtion of the service over
the lines affected . People are annoyed
by the ringing of telephone bells without
calls following, but the greatest incon
venience is the in ability to get desired
connections, and in many instance it is
impossible to reach the operators. In
quiry at the central office brings the in
formation that th: trouble will be recti
fied upon the return of the linemen to
the city. It would seem that an ex
change as important as this would iustify
the permanent employment of men to
keep the system in proper repair.

his wife, left this morning for the east.
To an Aroc8 reporter who greentd bim
at the Rock Island depot he said be

Florida for a short, visit and beyond this
his plans were indefinite. He proposed
to go abroad though, and would be away

Hock Island, the c ilonel said that would
depend upon the action of the ordnance
department on his return. - He would, of
course, cheerfully go wherever he was
ordered. Capt. Lyon will be temporar

r. A. Leavltc Aekoewleeseo the aid
eat the People ef feeatk Dakota by
tke Tkree citlee.
F. A. Leavitt who recently canvassed
the three cltiea in the interests of the
South Dakota sufferers, has written a let
ter from Worthing, 8. D.. in which he
Permit me to say to the people of the
tri-clties of the Mississippi valley, Dav
enport. Rock Island and Moline, that my
recent visit there for the purpose of ob
taining assistance for the drouth -stricken
destitute of South Dakota, disclosed to
me that the milk of human kindness Las
not all dried up, although it is a period
of Universal hard times. Yet under these
discouraging circumstances my most san
guine anticipations were more than grat
ified. Hardly a business man that
I approached turned me away
without a donation. And what made
it more thankfully received was the cor
dial way they do it. At first they were
discouraged, owing to the long - time it
took to establish the certainty of my
statement in regard to the actual needs of
the people. But when it was fully and
satisfactorily established, by . official in
quiry, that my statements were reliable
and that all contributions would go to
people really in need of help, ihe papers
so informed the public, and the people
then responded liberally to my appeals.
Many people in South Dakota who have
been visited by the calamity that made
assistance necessary, will always remem
ber with gratitude the generosity of their
more fortunate brethren in these cities.
Nearly $500 in cash and about 1 1,500
worth of clothing testify to the sympathy
they have toward ns.
In behalf of those who will thus le
tided oyer this unfortunate period in the
history of certain parts of this state, I
wish to extend to the generous men and
women, who gave so freely and worked so
willingly to furnish aid to our people, the
heartfelt gratitude of the people of South
Dakota. And especially do I wish to
thank the women for their noble efforts
to aid me in my delicate task. I could
say much more in behalf of the indi
vidual efforts made by many of the good
women and men of the cities, and especi
ally some of the churches, but time and
space will not permit.
