Th9 Rockforl Construction company
lias finished the paving of Twentieth
street north to Fourth avenue where the
iwo blocks put in last full are joined.
There is one more block to do tbe one
north of Second avenue, and this will
consume a week's time with good weather.
The company will then turn i:a attention
to the five blocks west of Fifteenth street
on Second avenue, which it is hoped will
be completed by the middle of June or
the first of July at the outside.
The boulevarded portion of Twentieth
htreet south of Fourth presents a beauti
ful appearance, and when the grass is
growing between the curb and the walks,
it will be one of the prettiest drives
in the three cities. The Rockford com
pany has made a neat job of it a.d has
put in a good quality of brick the home
material. The nature of the work done
by this company this season has some
what amended for the unavoidable delay
"vhich was experienced last year.
Many property holders have, during
the past week, endorsed tbe position taks
n by The Argus, that the council
(hould Older the contractors who were
twarded the Moline avenue extension,
to begin work without delay. The firm
( f Edwards & Walsh, which has the
contract, is now busy with a big under
taking in Davenport, one that will last
intilthe middle of the summer, and
there is no reason why Rock Island
should wait until it is done. The under
tiking here is one of great importance
and unless it is begun fit the earliest pos
sible moment it will not be completed
tais summer. The firm promises an ex
cellent quality of brick and is doing good
ork in Davenpcrt in the manner of lay
ing the pavement, and Rock Island
siould not be neglected until perhaps the
trick supply is limited and the hot sea
son is upon us,;.when progress is not so
npid. The council should order the
ork to commence at once. The city
his everything to lose and nothing to
giin by delay, and it is the city's inter
ests the municipal body is looking after.
A recent issue of the Brick maker con
tt.ins some interesting figures oa compar-
tive tests of paving material which may
well be repeated to Rock Island readers.
Tbe fact that brick is the most economi
cl pavement for use not only on busi-
nees but on residence streets is something
that should be understood by everyone,
and tbe Eoontr the better. Columbus,
O., now has 60 miles of modern paved
s.reets, and this year is putting down
nothing but paved brick. Eastern and
western cities are doing the same thing.
The brick pavement is branching
oat from the business center onto
tiacy a residence street. When public
spirit and private enterprise begin to do
the same thing in Rock Island the dawn
of a new era will not be afar off.
The figures referred to are as follows:
Test of vitrified paving bricks. Made

TflE NEW MOTIVE POWER.
Wetafla Belnc Kapidly Perfected for
the Iatradueiton of the flee trie
The work of putting the finishing
touches to everything about the electric
power station was done this week.
The last engine was set in place jester
day afternoon, and the connections are
being made today so that it is expected by
those in charge that the engine will be in
running order this evening. It is
smaller than any of tbe other engines and
is designated by the engineers as "Jumbo."
All that is now delaying the running of
the cars is some electrical fixtures which
are daily expected, and as soon as they
arrive the trial trip wiil be made. En
gineer Reed, who is in the employ of the
manufacturers of the engines, and is here
superintending the setting up and getting
them in running order, has almost fin
ished his work and is confident that every
thing will move along nicely when once
they are started.
At the car barns on Moline avenue the
work of putting the cars in their respec
tive positions to facilitate their handling
is being done, and pits are being dug
under four of the tracks in tbe barns
for convenience in examining the cars.
the idea being to examine each car .thor
oughly when it runs in at night. The
trolleys have been put on car 13. of the
Elm street line, and car 32 of the Blue
line, those cars now being in readiness
A large number of men were employed
this morning in putting in a new curve
at tbe corner of Elm street and Seventh
avenue, which will complete the equip
ment of the Elm street line on which it is
thought the trial trip will be made.
It is now confidently expected that a
car will be started early in the week and
indeed it would not be surprising if a car
was started at almost anytime.
The syndicate having received the
governmental permission to lay the
ground wire across the island causeway,
will begin it in a few days. A force of
14 meo, under charge of . B. Brennan,
all in the employ of the Western Union
telegraph company, arrived at the Rock
Island house yesterday and are engaged
in stringing the telegraph wires over the
new tower. Managing Director Louder
back arranged with the telegraph men
with regard to th3 syndicate power wire.

Sad news ws received this morning
from Ntw York by Mrs. W. W. Eggles-
ton. It was of the death of her sister,
Mrs. George WillUm Warren, wife of tbe
great composer of sacred music and or
ganist at St. John's church. New York
City. Mrs. Eggieston had but recently
returned from New York, where she at
tended the funeral of her father, Richard
A. Pease. When she left her sister was
very ill and had been for sometime, but
she was pronounced better and there was
no apprehensions of an unfavorable turn
in her disease. Tbe deceased was about
39 years of age, and a lady very greatly
beloved by all who knew her.
The funeral of Miss Bessie Hardy was
held from her late home, 317 Twenty-
third street yesterday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Rev. R. F. Sweet officiating.
The funeral was attended by all the pupils
in her room at school in a body and six

Crawford Once More.
Hon. W. F. Crawford, Rock Island's
famous state senator, arrived home from
Springfield this morning for Sunday so
journ with his family. The members of
the stock yards sub-committee desired to
have Crawford grace them with his pres
ence among them in Chicago today, but
tbe Rock Island statesman could not
comply, and he therefore voted against
the committer's going. He, however,
found himself in the minority, and the
committee with great reluctance, no
doubt, was obliged to go without him, as
the following Springfield telegram to to
day's Chicago Herald would indicate:
That stock yards sub committee of the
senate agricultural committee met today
and determined to go Chicago to visit
the Union stock yards Saturday morning.
Rock Island Crawford voted agiinst it.
He said he would enjoy a trip of the sort.
but owing to poor health and domestic res
quirements he must refrain from all such
indulgences. The meeting was discover
ed by chance in a peculiar way. Presi

TflE CANAL ROUTE.
Capt. Marshall Makes a Flying
Min VlfWH an to What mil Xext be
lone-Dirtto Fly This
Capt. Marshall, in charge of tbe canal
surveys and construrt'on, was io the city
today in company with Hon. J. H. Mur
phy, of Davenport. He was merely here
on a flying trip, and after inspecting the
work so far as it has progressed will re
turn to Chicago this evening. An Argus
reporter had a few moments con
versation with the captain on the
route adopted and in reply to a query
as to its permanency, he said:
"Tbe most feasible of the routes lead
ing to the mouth of Rock river bs been
adopted, and as far as I am capable of
judging, will not be changed. Tie loca
tion was made with tbe best interests of
the government alone in mind, and based
upon tbe results of the engineers' work.
It will save the goyerment at least $S2,
000, and that is quite an item."
When asked what tbe next step would
probably be, Cipt. Marshall said tbe con
demnation and purchase of the ntcessary
land would Le the next proceediug. It
would also be necessary to arrange as to
a draw bridge oyer tbe R.I.& P tracks as
well as for several highways crossing the
canal. "Dirt will fly on the canal late
this sjmmer," he said, in reply to a fur
ther question about the time sctive oper
ations would begin; and I think by tbe
time the next congress meets we will
