I rce the Matter.
Postmaster Wells is ia daily expectancy
of some information from Washington
pertaining to the location of the govern -ment
building site, but so far nothing
has been heard. The various sites which
have been submitted to the department
from which to make a selection are:
The Churchill & Sweeney property on
the northwest corner of Seventeenth
street and Fourth avenue.
The Krell property on the south-east
corner of Third avenue and Eighteenth
The Ferguson and Marshall lot on the
north-west corner of Third avenue and
The old plating works location on the
corner of Eighteenth street and Fifth
The west Warren lot on Second avenue
and Sixteenth street.
The propositions are all for $10,000,
the amount of the appropriation limited
for expenditure for a lot. The remainder
of the $75,000 is to go into the building.
Inspector Gould, whcT inspected the
Rock Island postofflce 'Tuesday, in
formed Mr. Wells that he was impressed
with the absolute need of a public build
ing In Rock Island as soon as it could
pftaslbly be erected, and he would so ad
vise the department at Washington. This
may have the effect to hasten the Rock
Island building. It is certainly to be
hoped such may be the case.
, A GOOD RECORD.
Snpt. Mnrrin's Report of the Rock
Inland Waterworks-. -What the City
The report of Superintendent of Water
works John A. Murrin for the fiscal year
ending April 1, shows that the water
pumped during the year was 621,374,
417 gallons, which is a saving over the
previous year of 85.000,000, and which
includes a reduction in the fuel bill of
f301. This is certainly a great saving to
the city and is highly creditable to Mr.
Murrin who has accomplished it through
stopping the wholesale waste of water by
enforcing the ordinances without dis
crimination in regard to sprinkling, by
placing automatic stop cocks in sll water
ing troughs and repairing all leaks as soon
The precautions thus taken and the
care exercised by Mr. Murrin, which has
proven of so great an advantage to tie
city, certainly entitles him to the
mayor's favorable consideration for re
appointment, to say nothing of his prac
tical mechanical knowledge, which has
not only been shown in his general man
agement of the works, but especially in
directing the putting in of the Cable filter.
It is therefore particularly desirable that
he be retained as a matter of importance
to the city, to say nothing of the rerog.
nition he has shown himself entitled to
as to merit.
Since the wrestling bout last Saturday
night at Harper's theatre, the friends of
"Farmer" Barns ia this city have talked
of getting Burns here to wrestle Cam
stock who has since that time remained
in the city. Comstock appears to be
anxious to meet the Iowa champion and
has offered to put up different sums of
money. Yesterday his backer, Jam3s
Agnew, put up 50 forfeit that Comstock
would throw Burns three out of five falls
catch as catch can, two points down, the
match to be for $100 a side any time be
fore the first of May. Barn9' friends
thereupon began to skirmish sround to
find him and see whether he could wrestle
before May 1 or not. He is supposed to
be at his home in Big Rock. Iowa, and
has written his friends that he will be
here on Friday, but Comstock stated this
morning that unless the money was put
up today his forfeit would be withdrawn,
and he also bet Billy Gibson, who is one
of Burns' friends and is backing him, $5
that they would not put up the $50 to
cover his forfeit.

report of the committee on thenarration on
the state of religion through the
presbytery which -was read by Elder S.
D.Cleland, the report showing that
the wori of the year had been exceeding
ly gratifying, the number of accessions

I M PORTA XT TRANSFER.
Krell & Math rurrliaie a Valuable
riece of Keoond Avenue I'roperty
for a RaHding;.
An important transfer in S?oa J ave
nue refcl estate, which involves a gratify
in" building and business improvement,
was consummated this atter orin, Krell
& Math purchasing of L S. McCSe for
9,000 the 30x150 feet immediately west
of his business block, and on which
stands one of the most ancient fin 1 de
ploraUe looking structures in the city.
As a stipulition of the transaction the
purchasers are to have the use of
the brick walls on either side to be in
cluded as a part of a handsome brick
building they will erect on the premises
at once, the intention being to equip it
throughout as a first-class confectionery
and bakery. The storeroom and parlor
back will be tiled throughout, while the
archway leading into McCabt's own build
ing on the east and his leased stores on
the west, will remain, so that there will be
free access through Krell & Math's store
at all times. This arrangement, which i?
a plan adopted in many of the larger
cities where confectionery and ica cream
parlors are connected with great dry
goods houses, will prove mutually advan
tageous. By the terms of the deal, Krell & Math
will own the ground clear back to tha
alley and they have already completed
plans for a candy kitchen and bakery
with brick ovens, while the appointments
of the store and parlors will be new.
modern and handsome in all respects
The counters and cases will be solid glass
to the flootand an elegant wall soda foun
tain will also be provided. The furnishings
will be the best that can be secured as far as
the interior is concerned, while the build
ing will be artistic and attractive in its
exterior appearance. Krell & Math will
occupy the entire first floor and Lasement
while the second floor, reached by a stair
way on the west side, will be planned
The work of erection of the ovens will
be commenced at once, and the new
building will be begun as soon as Mr.
McCabe can vacate the old building now
on the ground, by moving into the store
recently leased by him of F. Lndolph.
Krell & Math hope to be in their new
quarters by August 1 .

Laughter is a positive sweetness of life,

another's feelings or in aught that is im
