Aid. Evan Heard From
The city council held two meetings
In the afternoon the !dermen quietly
.assembled, were called to order ana vis
ited the Twentieth street pavement which
was duly inspected, and on reassembling
the same was approved of and accepted
from the Rockford Construction company
with certain conditions shown in the offi
In the evening, however, came the en
tertaining session . The atmosphere per.
vadins the chamber was fairly loaded
with eloquence, to which Aid. Evans
contributed considerably more thin his
The matter of the repiankicg of the
Mi'an bri'lges was the first thinp to enlist
the oratorical powers of the Fifth ward
alderman. Aid. Hetttr, from the bridge
committee, reported tbat P. H. Louder
bck. of the Rock Island & Milan street
railway, had refused to comply with the
council's order relative to planking. A'd.
Evans made a lerg'.hy epeech to the
effect that if such was the case the street
car company be required to remove their
tracks from the bridge and abandon their
rights there entirely. He believed Mr.
Louderback was working a game of bluff
with the city, and he thought the council
could bluff as well as Mr. Louderback
Aid. Iluesing asked if the ordinance of
the Rock Island & Milan company did
not provide.that no part of tie system
could be abandoned without forfeiting
the entire r:ght.
The mayor replied that the company
had two different ordinances, one for
the line to the tower, and one across the
Aid. Huesiag then thought it misht be
the be!ter pslicy to raise the license for
crossing the bridges from $100 to $40).
Aid. Hetter said the amount aaed to be
$5 JO and the city had never collected it.
Aid. Evans moved that the Rock Island
& Milan company be authorized to re
move their tracks from the Milan
Aid. Iluesing amended the motion to
the effect that the eorr.piny be or lered to
take its track from the bridges.
This motion was put and defeated by a
Aid. Evans demanded that those
dernien votiae against the motion

AU. iotken tmujnt the council
acting too histilv in the matter.
wni le he did cot believe in the counci
being bulldozed, he thought more time
should be given to the matter before Ufc'
AM. Adams hel l that The street
company was attempting a bluff,
Aid. Knox believed in moving slowly
in the matter, and if any bluff was at
tempted the council could bluff, too.
Aid. Iluesing requested that tha city
ordinances be read as to the relative
rights of the street car company asd the
council in the premises.
City Attorney Haas read the original
ordinance granting the Rock Island &
Milan road the use of the
bridges, and no provision appeared
whereby the council coull force the
company to plank the bridges.
Aid. Evans then moved that instead of
the motion voted upon the license be
raised to $ 400 in accordance with Aid.
Huesing's suggestion. The matter was
further debated acd referred to the bridge
committe and city attorney to report.
The Fifth ward statesman, however,
appeared at his best, when, after Presi
dent Jeckson and Vice President Carse,
of the Improvement association, had
nude pleas for the payment by the coun
cil of the bill of S10O representing the
amount of Oliver, Olsen's expenses at
Washington in the interests of the via
duct. Mr. Jackson had made a very
plain and comprehensive statement of the
case acd the great advantages that Rock
Island had gained by the viaduct, and that
bill was one that our tax.payers who are
to be benefitted should properly pay
Mr. Carse stated that the viaduct was the
real, key to the Union depot, toward
which we are all looking with hopeful
eyes and renewed confidence. Mr. Cable,
of the Rock Island road, had intimated
to him. that with the viaduct constructed
there would be a prospect of that road
running its trains down town.
Aid. Evans was the first alderman to
speak on the subject. He renewed his
former motion that the bill should be
paid. It was the council's duty to pay it,
and a d'sgrace to refuse it. Then his
elr quence again found expression. Gems
of thought came forth in flowery words
which held the council and audience in
amazement. The Fifth ward alderman
was in his element. His lestures were
graceful and it seemed as if his vocabu
lary wa9 inexhaustible. At one time

ing off. "gentlemen." said the aldermar,
""al Brc we, .wuo are we tbat we
should sef jpurselves above the interests
of the taxpayers who send us here? Who
among us knows what he is voting
about or upon half the time. Gntle
men by what claim d we assert ourselves
to ignore those things which are to the
interet-ts of our tsx payers? Seems to
me we are placing ourselves above our
positions; we are the servants of the peo
pie and we fail to comprehend the sacred
trusts that are placed in our bands if we
ignore matters such as this. Let U3 con
sider well what we are doing when such
citizens as William Jackson and Henry
Carse come before this council and enter
pleas for a bill; let us not Bet ourselyes up
as above them, but let us respect their
wishes, for they represent the Ux payers
and we are supposed to represent them."
The bill was allowed by almost unani
mous vote and the council tendered a
rising vote of thanks to the association
for its work on behalf of the 'city, also
on Aid. Evans' motion.
Aid. Evans was again heard at con
siderable kng'h when the street and alley
committee reported fayorab.y on grant
ing permission to the Rock Island plow
company to use a portion of Sixth street
for a coal shed. The Fifth ward alder
man held that the city should attempt to
sell two lots which it owned in the ix
mediate vicinity instead of giving aay
the use of streeis. The council however
adopted the committee's report.
Aid. Kennedy, of the street hnd alley
committee, reported adversely on behalf
of the joint committee on streets and al
leys and sewers on the Schnell plat to
the city. Aid. Evans asked Mr. Kenne
dy if he had secured the names of the
sewer committee to such report, and Mr.
Kennedy said no. Mr. Evans then con
demned this as an unbusiness-Lke manner
of doing thinsrs, and also termed
Kennedy's conduct underhanded.
Mr. Kennedy replied that he was hon
est in his report, and if Aid. Evans called
him underhanded he lied.
It looked for a moment s if there
might be trouble, but M. J. Murphy as
agent for the Schnell property finally put
an end to all by withdrawing the plat.
The council made a great mistake in not
granting it. or rather Aid. Kennedy de
liberately neglected his duty in not bring
ing in a favorable report, instead of at
tempting to smuggle in an unfavorable
The council advanced the paid fire de
partment another notch by confirming the -I

a hose carriage and fo;;r horses. TLe
