' 1 Not Doubt-side Tain of Lt
.tights Conneil Meeting;.
The retiring city council is determined
to leave a good record. Tbe oat-going
allermen are desirous of starting .their
successors on the right track. at any rate,
ai d then if they don't dd-all that ;they
should, no reflections can be cast on their
immediate predeces-ors. At last night's
meeting tbe council practically
settled the question of a paid fire depart
ment for Rock Island by an unanimous
vote. When under the head of commits
Ue reports, tha fire and light committee
was called, Aid. Corken, chairman, eaid
h) believed Aid. Knox and Evans had
surne interesting information to impart to
the council . Mr. Knox thereupon stated
that he and Alderman Evans bad recently
visited Chicago and had been requested
by Aid. Corken before starting to make
inquiry and investigation concerning a
fire alarm system and other appliances
f ir a paid department. Mr. Knox stated
tiat he and Aid. Evans had called upon
Superintendent Channon of the Gamewell
alarm system, which is conceded to be
the best and he had stated that he would
I lace a number of boxes in Rock Island
free of charge, for a number of days,
for a test in order that the council
night form an idea of its workings.
Mr. Knox also recommended adver
tising In the Fireman's Journal for
the sale of the hose carts of the volunteer
e'epartment in order that tbey may be dis
posed of to the best possible advantage,
ltd a cart for horses and a paid depart
ment secured in their place. The coun
cil adopted the suggestion by an unani
mous vote and the clerk was instructed
to so advertise.
Aid. Larkin left what will be an en
during monument to himself, in a paved
Market square. He presented the ordi
nance last night and the council adopted
the same after some effort was made to
t tave it off until the new council comes
in. The ordinance is an excellent one
nd should be supplemented at once by
one providing for the paving of East and
West Seventeenth street north of Second
nvenne to First, and of Seventeenth street
A petition for the abatement of a license
to peddle fish signed by J. M. Beardsley M.
M. Sturgeon and others was read and after
some comment Aid. Larkin made a few
remarks in favor of granting the prayer.
This broupht Aid. Kennedy to hisfeetwith
the assertion thattherewas something very
queer about this fish business, to which
Aid. Larkin promptly retorted that there
was nothing q jeer about it, and be did
not care for any insinuations from Mr.
Kennedy. He had stated that he be
lieved it would be the proper thing to
permit fish to be peddled free and that
was all there was abo&t it. He was con
scientious in his position and he did not
propose to have his motives questioned
bv Mr. Kennedy. The lattercould not
see why there should be any discrimina
tion in favor of fish, that was all.
As tbe official record shows the council
took a number of important steps, such
as asserting its rights with reference to
that portion of Moline avenue encroached
upon by the Rock Island road, ordering
also the double street car tracks on Mo
line avenue to be placed in the middle of
the street before paving is done, and rais
ing the salaries of tbe mayor and city at
attorney $200 each per annum.
ine salary increase which tee mayor
had the audacity to ask so soon after hav
ing assurances of being installed for
another two years is regarded by tax-;
payers generally as a rather cheeky act.
With Mayor McConichie Rock Island
for tbe first time gave its executive a sal
ary of more than $500, raising it to $1,
uw, ana sua ne is not sausnea, but as
soon as he sees that he is elected for
another two yearB be demands $1,200
ana gets it. i ne increase in tbe com
pensation of the city attorney is not
unreasonable, especially since the paving
extensions require so. much more time

To tbe Public: I am informed that a
report is being circulated that the ice I
am selliDg is unfit for use, and that it was
harvested in sewerage water. I wish to
inform my friends that these statements
are absolutely false and that they are
prompted by a spirit of maliciousness on
the part of a firm bent on securing busi
ness. I claim that tbe article I an selling is
as pure as any ever offered in this city,
and am strengthened in my belief by a
certificate of ana'vsis given by Frank
Nadler, chemist. Fe'b 20. 1891. in which
he says: "The earn pie of ice from Mis
