MATTERS OF MOMENT.
To Come Before the City Council
Kail ay Ordinance, the t ire epa t-
meat, and Other Thing of en.
eral Public Concern.
The city council meets in adjourned
session tonight, and the meeting is likely
to be an an important one.
The matter of the Milan brides is
likely to be brought up. and it .is very
probable that the city will come to a
friendly understanding with the Rock Isl
and & Milan Street railway, with refer
ence to the same. . It is very certain that
there has been considerable misunder
standing, and it is to the interest cf all
concerned that a conclusion, mutual!
satisfactory, be arrived at. Certainly it
is to the interests of Rock Island that the
street car company continue to operate us
Milan branch.and the betttr facilities we
get with suburban towns in all directions,
the better. Manager Louderback, of the
Davenport & Rock Island Railway corn
way company, will also seek one
of two ordinances which he will
present to enable him to change the
rou't Gf the Elm street line somewhat and
it is to be hoptd that an ordinance suit
able to the most practicable alteration
will be granted 60 that the new track
may be put down and electricity again
established on the line to the bluff.
The adoption of the electric fire and
police alarm, the appointment of fire
men for the paid department the provid
ing of a police patrol wagon, the delay
in the commencement i the Moline
avenue pavement, ibs improvement of
east Seventh avenue and the desirability
of having seven voting places at the
coming school election, are matters which
will be apt to receive the attention of the

The First M. E. church was crowded
last evening to hear Rev. George W.
Gue's sermon on "Our Public Schools,
Romish Rule and Foreign Immigration."
The pastor spoke of the position of our
public schools today and the matter of
compulsory education, after which he
called his hearers' attention to the dan
cers to which our country was subjected
through foreign immigration and saying
that while our sympathy went out to the
a.en who were killed in New Orleans,
we hve no use for such societies as the
"Msfl," the anarchists or the "Clanea
gal," which were all composed of for
eigner. Then he spoke of the different
societies which were in his estimation, a
benefit to our country, and among which
he cited the "Patriotic Sons of America,'
the "American Protective Association"
and the "Sons of St. George," all of
which he heartily endorsed.
He spoke not only of the Catholic, but
Lutheran churches, in his own peculiar
waj, making some rather sweeping asser
tions, and some of his remarks touching:
the various school systems brought forth
actual applause and stamping of feet.
In conclusion be spoke of the coming
school election when each one should do
his duty in putting men in these posi
tions who would staod by our public
school eystem which was-the foundation
of this republic.
KOCK ISLAND ARSENAL.

When Col. D. W. Flagler was pro
moted to the position of chief of ord
nnnce, the friends and admirers of the
former commandant of Rock lilac d ar
st nal in the three cities prophesied that
it would be the best thing that had ever
happened to Rock Island Arsenal. They
realized that Col. Flagler was familiar
with the arsenal, and realized its im
portance and advantages better than any
other man in the ordnance corps. That
those who made these predictions knew
what they were talking about, is shown
by the following Washington telegram to
today's Chicago Tribune:
An increase in the facilities for the man
ufacture of ordinance supplies and the
erection of a plant for the manufacture of
carriages for field guns at the Rock Isl
and, 111 . arsenal are among the new pro
jects Gen. Flagler, the new chief of ord
nance, expects to carry out early in his
administration. The sanction of con
gresB will be required for some of the
schemes be has in view, but there is a great
deal that can be done toward increas
ing the amount of work of this al
ready important arsenal under existing
law. The improvements will commence
simultaneously with the selection of a
tew commanding offlcer.T Itis definitely
settled that Col. Whittimore will not re
turn to the command, as it is understood
that he will ask to be relieved when be
codes back from Europe, if he does not
succeed in getting an eastern station.
He wants the Springfield armory. If it
should be given him, then Col. Bafflne
ton would undoubtedly be assigned to the
command "f Rock Island, but it seems
far more likely at the present time that
be will not be disturbed and that either
Col. Mordecai or Farley will be selected
for Rock Ieland.

TWICE TAXED TIMBER.
Assessors Without Fartlcnlarly Con.
cien'lons Scruple In the Wiscon
'Talk about your old days of stated
rights in the south," said a tri city lumber
merchant to a Davenport Democrat rep
resentative Saturday, "I want to tell you
that up in Wisconsin, where we get the
logs for our mill here, they have a brand
of that article that is the meanest thing
on record. They have given np the
building of that dim theylwanted to - put
into the Chippewa to rob as with,:,and
they don't seem to be having gilt edge
success with their efforts to manipulate
rates in their favor and against us, but
they are doing all the little things they
can there to make it hot for us.
"They have a law up there to the effect
that the assessors must make view of all
logs that are banked for driving down
the streams and value and assess them as
other property. Now look at it. We are
now paying as high as S per cent on our
timber holdings in some of the coun
ties up there. Without any ad
vance in the price of lumber the
price and the value of timber land is
going up all the time, and the assessor
does not let that fact escape him. He
gives us all the value we can stand on
those timber tracts. To the increased
assessment on this sort of property there
is to be added the further consideration
that it is more difficult to get logs each
year. The trouble and expense of reach
ing this timber on which we are assessed
so high is continually growing.
"Notwithstanding all this the assessor
comes around and taxes us again on the
logs we have banked, after he has taxed
them once in the tree. 'How high is dot, '
as my German friend expressed it?
"One Thing we can be sure of. all of
us. Any determined effort on the part
of the Badger state to collect taxes
levied in this manner will bring on some
of the warmest aud most' determined
litigation tbej have yet had up there.
We shill fisht such exaction to the last

A force of men was put to work under
direction of Foreman Carlson this morn
ing taking up the cross-over switch of the
tri-city railway company on Second
avenue west of Seventeenth street, which
will be transferred to Third avenue just
west of Twenty-fourth street. The
switch was of no use to the company in
the former location since the introduc
tion cf electricity, as the double curve at
Fifteenth street and one to be put in at
Seventeenth connecting the Milan road
will either answer the purposes of trans
fering from one side of the Second avenue
double track to the other. "The object
of placing the cross over switch on Taird
avenue" said Mr. Louderback this morn
ing "is to improveihe service of the bridge
line until we get our electric cars run
ning clear over. We h-ive a rur-Dyer
switch not far from the Rick Island
bridge in Davenport, and our purpose is to
run electric cars as nearly as possible to
the bridge on either side, attaching a
trailer which wLl run through without
transfer, horses being attached at the ap
proaches to the bridges to cross the same
and the island, while the electric cars will
take the trailer coming over, cross over to
the right hand track and come on down
town. The same will be true on the
Davenport side. The only change that
the arrangement will make in the present
running of cars will be to reduce the
time one-haif at least, and enable us to put
electric cars on the bridge line as far as
the brldsTes on eit'aer side."
"We wjll a so put in a cross-over
switch on Fort Armetron? avenue at the
approach to the big bridge, so that whn
cars are interrupted by the draw opening,
all the cars will not be blocked going
one way, but that one or two may be
turned back and the others sent on, thus
maintaining our schedule time."

J. C, Comstock, the Michigan giant,
with his trainer, Jack Carkeek, arrived
here last nieht and the duo are at the
Lorimer. Comstock is in fine condition.
For the pact three weeks he has been
training at Beloit, Wis., for his match
with Evan Lewi?, "the strangler," which
takes place at the grand opera house Fri
day night of next week. Lewis is train
ing at Barnable, Wis. The match will
be for S200 a Bide, Lewis to throw Corn
stock three times, catch-as-catch car, in
90 minutes. Comstock is backed by Car
keek and Klein of Beloit. Lewis is be
ing trained by Tom G il.
The match is tne outcome of the recent
wrestliDg tournament at Chicago in which
Lewis and Carkeek were pitted against
all comers. A Chicago paper commented
on the failure of Lewis to wrestle Com
stock, and "the stranglei" replied that he
could throw the Michigan giant five times
in an hour. Tnen Cornainc'r went after
him with the result that this match was
arranged. As Comstock has defeated
"the Jap," Cnarles Greene, the' English
champion, who threw Joe Higgins in Du
buque, Char.es Moth and Hugh Leonard
it will be seen Lewis has no license to
throw him as often as he pleases.
Since be left Dubuque Comstock hss
wrestled at Uock Island. Chicago, Madi

He wres'led Tom Mclnery. the Irish gi
ant, at Kenosha, Wis., for four hours and
twenty minutes when the match was de
clared a draw.
At Dresent Carkeek, Lewi. Rieber and
Tom Comers all claim tne championship.
Carkeek and Lewis have not spoken to
each other for two years and Lewis baa
minaged tq avoid a deciding contest with
Jack. He has defeated "tne strangler"
in three out. of four matches.
