A SIS.OOO Brdie to b Bctlt by the
H -From JHoltse.
The Moline Kepublican Journal of last
evening has the following concerning a
r. rospective new bridge connecting that
city with Sylvan island:
For some time past the C, B. & Q.
rulroad companv, the Moline Water
Power company and Mr. Tropp, of the
a oline ice company, have been endeavs
oring to come to an agreement whereby
the former could construct an iron britlae
across the tail-race to Sylvan island, and
carrying oat the lone contemplated and
once frustrated plan of extending a stub
track from the m tin line to the ice bouses
and stone quarries on the aforesaid island.
A conference was held and the railroad
company agreed to build tne bridge pro
vided they could secure a right of way
frim Third avenue to the tai'race. The
bridge will cost about f 15.000, and be a
very substantia structure. The full de-
ta Is are not yet arranged, but it is thought
lbs work will be accomplished this
It will be a great improvement and a
groat convenience for the varied interests
centered on Svlv&n island as well as those
which are likely to come in the f jture.
The Sirw Court Houe.
The Moline Republican attempts to
throw cold water on the new court house
prtject, and says that while we need a
new court bouse and shouldhave it "let us
not rush blindly into a stupendous debt,
and burden the taxpayers. Is it not better
to .et a good ready, and then erect a
court hcuse that will be in keeping with
the progress of the twin cities. Nothing
less than $100 000 wiil build such a
county building as this county ought to
have. And is it not better to wait a
year, or even two years, until the pres
sure of hard tines iet up a little before
we tackle so bis a job." It seems to us
we Lave been waiting severul years on
this subject and if we wail a few years
more we will still be waiting. Tonder
if the Republican would still continue its
objections if the new court house weie
to be located up somewhere near Moline?

by wiiting. Let's be about it at once,

The Charlest'on's Oflirer.
For tevtral days the interest of the
civilized world his been absorbed in the
chase of the U. S. flit ship Cbatleston
of the Chilian vessel, Itata, down the Pa
cific coast. A new local interest in the
race will be aroused when it ia known
that Commodore W. P. McCann of the
American cruiser is a brother to J. R.
McCann, the leading support of the
Eunice Goodrich company new playing
at Ha.-per's theatre. He is now regarded
as one of the leading commodores in the
U. S. navy, and during the war dis
tioguh bed himself in his gallantry with
Commjdores Farragut and Porter. He
now ranks among the notables of the
navy. Next year be will have attained
the age of 62 years, and may be placed on
the retired list.

Miss Louisa Parsons, superintendent of

When she returned she was engaged at the
