An Excellent Proposition Which

To Ask the Council for-the Xf ary
. Ordinance to Fqnlp the Prr.
ent Milan Line WI h
The indications are bow that the unpopu
lar plan of changing the route of the
I lock Island & Milan road from the in
tersection of Eleventh street and Seventh
avenue, will be abandoned by Mr. Loud
erback and that the council will not be
asked to pass its judgment upon an ordi
nance pertainins thereto. According to
tbe best information The Akgus can ob
tiin. Mr. Louderback has under consider
ation another plan which will be as quick
ti meet the approval of the people as the
ether was to merit their disapproba
t on. If he can complete certain
negotiations now pending by which
property holders propose to cooperate
with him, he will ask the council at its
Eeit meeting for the necessary ordinance
t equip his road as it is at present loca-
cated, with electricity, and if the council
rants the ordinance at once, as it no
oubt will The Akgus, basing its iude;
lent on its past attitude toward all
aasonable petitions of the street railway
eople the road will be equipped with
lectricity within 60 days. If Mr. Loud
rback decides to seek these rights he will
be anxious to secure theordinance desired
while the Thompson-Houston people are
-ill here, in order that he may make a
ontruct with them for the electric equip
meat of the Rock Island & Milan line.
The Akgtjs hopes that Mr. Louderback
ill decide upon such a course, and in-

will seek those which may be more rcad-
TflE CANAL ROUTE.

The Davenport Democrat of this morn
ing says editorially:
Hennepin is all right again. There was
little formality in the way but it w&s
nhing more, and it has been brushpcl
iidc. Gov. Fiftr, of Illinois, called the
tenlion of the legislature to the custom
f the government in requiring the state
give its assent to the purchase of land
through condemnation or otherwise. A
resolution covering the case was adopted
by both houses promptly, and it is now
eneved that the lest technicality has
jen taken out of the way.
The telegraph brings practically some
it. formation as far as the removal of tech-
icalities are concerned. It is not withs
at the pale cf possibility, however, that
;norance and neglect of these little for
malities at Springfield might have ieopar
dized the entire canal project. Neither is
unreasonable to say that personal pre
sences have manifested themselves as
the route and while the line adopted as
ie most practicable may have caused
oasiderable disappointment, and too,
xotwithBtand:ng that there are many who
ffirm that it is not as good a route for
lock Island as the one on the north side,
uese merely local feelings should not be
ermitted to endanger delay in
getting the measure through, iror
i danger is delay and nothing
tut the immense general import
a nee of the canal to the entire country
should actuate those who ate working for
.b success. The canal is above lo:al
aterests; it is of more than local irr.por
tance. It is a measure which Iooks to
the best interests of the entire north-west
t.nd of the entire country. It has been
labored for as such, it has been counte
nanced by congress as such and should
be built as such. No delay of any kind
thould be permitted to impede the pro
gress of its construction. The Argcs is
happy in the knowledge of the fact that
.he threatened obstacle at Springfield ha:
lieen so speedily overcome.
The Argus is in receipt ot a telegram
from Representative George W. Vinton
noting the passage of the resolution by
be joint session ceding jurisdiction to
.he United States over the property to be
acquired for the Hennepin canal.
The plans for the Rock Island viaduct
have been returned to Capt. Lyons by
Col. Flagler, chief of ordnance, with his
approval, the alterations at the present
slough bridge being that the span at the
north end is to be raised three feet at the
south end. the second span six feet, the
third span nine feet and the fourth span
12 feet each at the south end,
making the grade over the bridge
to the viaduct the same as the embank -
ment now is. The viaduct proper will be
16 feet above the railroad track instead
of 18 feet, making the grade to
Third avenue much less than it has been
Capt. 'Lyon expressed his opinion to
Mayor McConochie and Fred Bass this
afternoon that the viaduct would be com
pleted and ready for use in 100 days from
now. Capt. Lyon also stated that the
Rock Island bridge would not be closed
during the present work on the bridge.

The Richardg-LeVrange Elopement
The Coople Mnppoeedto be in Hiding
In Thla ajity.
About three months agoNeisLiGrange
moved his family from Pleasant Valley,
Iowa, and settled in Milan. lie also
brought with him one Anton Richard,
who had boarded with him some time,
and who continued to do S3 after they
moved to Milan . There, however, seemed
to be an attraction for" Richard in the
LaGrange family which turned out to be
the oldest daughter, Miss Mabel by name
aged 13 years. For some time past the
family have noticed that he paid her more"
than ordinary attention and the mother
advised her daughter to treat him coolly
and not be so familiar. Things ran along
in this way until last Wednesday, when
the young lady, who is described as rather
pretty and somewhat tall for her age.
hired out to a family in Searstown
and remained there . until Saturday
evening. Richard did not show up at
the LaGrange household after break
fast time on Saturday and in
the evening Mr. La Grange hearing that
his daughter was in Searstown, went over
to see and there foucd that they bad just .
left on the list street cir for this city.
He immi-dU'ely telephoned the police in
this city a description of the pair, and
they in turn sent the description to the
Moline and Davenport police, but no trace
of the missing couple could be found. A
young man who resides in Milan, and
was at narper's theatre that evening. saw
the couple come into the theatre and af
ter remaining a little while they again
went out, and on Monday afternoon a
man living in this city, and who is well ac
quainted with all concerned, met Richard
in Davenport, since which time nothing
has been heard from them. Richard is a
man about 35 years o! age. and is said
not to be very prepossessing in appear
ance. Though no wnrrant has yet been issued
for Richards' arres. the girl's father has
signified bis intention of prosecuting him
if he can be found. This is one reason
why the police are making no effor's to
find them, though it is it is pretty certain
that the couple are in hiding in this city.

On litr fifteenth birthday Bessie May
Hardy, daughter of Mrs. Esther Hardy,

home, 317 Twenty-third street, at 10

brief life in the one neighborhood, and by
her bright, lovable disposition she had
won her way into the hearts of all who
knew ber. She was a pupil in the Rock
Island High school, and among her teach
ers and clas9 mates and her playmates
she was a universal favorite. That death
loves a shining mark was never more
She had been a patient sufferer for fiye
months with quick consumption.
The funeral will beheld from the house
at 2 p. m. Friday.

The Council Bluffs Nonpareil states
that Emma Wickstrom, of Moline, is in
that city in seat eh of her lover, named
Petersen. "The young man courted her
in Moline, and they were engaged to be
married. But before the happy day ar
rived Petersen deserted his betrothed and
has not been seen by her since. But
Emma has courage left. She has fol
lowed him to Lincoln, where it was learned
he had gone . Not finding him there, she
went to Omaha, where she was informed
that Petersen was a resident of Council
Bluffs. Mies Wickstrom came here and
reported her case to the police Sunday
She had been told that Petersen had been
employed in a carriage manufactory here,
but so far he has not been discovered."

As a group of actors were sitting in
one of the larare hotels a day or two ago
a gentleman approached and, mistaking
one of them, said:
''Excuse me. but are you not of the
firm of "Blank & Son? ''
"No. sir," was the reply; "I'm no sun,
I'm 'ft star!"'
A visible smile crept over the faces of
his companions, which, however, con
siderably broadened as the other, ad
justing his glasses and regarding the
young man more closely, added:
"Ah! certainly. 2s owl look again I
don't see how I could have mistaken you
for one of the firm-I-meant!" Boston

Talking about swagger, too much of
this commodity has lately brought to
grief a certain member of a well known
third rate London club. This gentle
man is one who, so far from admitting
that any member of the upper ten could
by any accident be unknown to him, is
always ready to boast of close and inti
mate friendship with every one happen
ing to have either rank or position. His
failing is notorious; and three humorists
determined to give him a lesson. Ac
cordingly, in the club billiard room, one
of theirnumber, Mr. C . casually said:
"Are you going to Lady L 's to
"No," replied tle victim. "Her lady
ship will never forgive me; but the fact
is, I am fagged out, and good ieople are
"Quite right. I'll make your apologies,"
said Mr. C .
Aghast at this uulooked for proposi
tion, but unable now to retreat from the
position he had takeu up, the only re
joinder of Mr. J was a feeble:
"Thanks; I wish you would."
Half an hour later, just as the trio
were about to leave the club, unhappy
Mr. J drew Mr. C aside, and
after some beating about the bush was
at last obliged to confess that he did not
know Lady L , and begged Mr. C
riot to mention his name to her.
"All right." said his triumphant tor
mentor, "I won't: you may depend upon
that, for I don't happen to know her my
self." London Tit-Bits.
