The council had another important and
interesting session last evening. All
meeting of the city council are important
and interesting these days.
The first matter of importance was the
Seventh avenue improvement, . east of
Elm street, and Alderman Adatna made a
strong speech in behalf of the rroposis
tion, and the great need of a good thor
oughfare now that Moline avenue is to
be torn up for paving. The improvement
will involve an expense of $3,000, and
the money could not be better expended.
The manner of doing the work was
discussed last night, some favoring spec
ial taxation, others special assessment,
while many were of the opinion it should
be done out of the general tuna. The
matter was finally refeu ed to a future
The question as to the planking of the
Milan bridges was called up and Manager
Loutlerback, of the Rnck Island & Milan
Street Railway company, was given per
mission to address the council. Mr.
Louderback expressed his surprise that
any member of the council should have
supposed that he had attempted any
bluff game with reference to the relations
of the city and the street railway, regard
ing the bridges. He then related
his" conversation with three of
the aldermen at the watch tower with
regard to the bridges, wherein he had
stated that under existingcircumstances he
had determined that the company could
not consider a proposition to plank the
bridges. He read from the oidinances
which had been placed in the hands of
the company by the court, showing that
the city could not legally dispossess the
railway people of the use of the bridges.
The legal rights of the company there
was readily conceded, but Mr. Louder
back stated that he did not desire to
stand on bis legal rights in the premises,
and bold on to that portion of the road
extendiog over the bridges if the council
desired to order his tracks o3. Hs read
a statement of the earnings and expen
ditures of that branch of the road,
showing that it did not pay to maintaia
it and that the company could not afford
to keep up the bridges for the heavy
trafiic to which they must be subjected,
and while the company had legal rights
over the same and could not be held for
the planking, he would:heerfu'ly bow to
the will of the council, and remove his
tracks if ordered to do so. It was merely
a business proposition, and be hoped that
in thiB matter he would receive the sane
kind and courteous treatment at the
hands of the council that had been shown
the other companies in which he was in
terested, by the Rock Island council.
He spoke of the d sire of both com
panies to work in accord with the
council for the upbuilding of the city
everywhere, and be thought the equip
ment of the lines showed the verification
of that deBire. All assessments for legit
imate street improvements had been
cheerfully met.and if.when the Hennepin
ranal was constructed, there would be
anything to warrant, he would be pleas
ed to ask for privileges to use the bridges
and equip the road in first-class style. For
the nresent business did not warrant it
at that end, and if the council so desired
be would renounce bis legal rights on the
bridges and yacate them.
Alderman Corken spose ef the time
when the city would have been glad to
give the bridges t any one to run them
and keep them up, and be did not think
the council should act too hastily in
driving any company off them now.
"We'll give them to the syndicate now
if thev'll take thtm," Baid Alderman
The entire subiect was properly re
ferred with a view to haying it adjusted
in a manner mutually agreeable.
The Davenport & Rock Island Street
Railway company petitioned to abandon
the Ninth street line south of Fourth ave
nue, and to construct lines on either a
route commencing atNineteenhand Fifth
and running south on Nineteenth to
Seventh and east to Twenty-fifth, or cn
Nineteenth to Sixth east to Twenty-first
and thence south to Seventh, the purpose
being in the event of the pas
sage of either ordinance to aoanaon
the present Elm street line. The
object of the proposed change is in relay
ing that portion of the Elm street line in
dicated to extend it through a territory
which will reach a larger portion of the
population than than it does at present,
so closely paralleling the Fourth avenue
line. Either change would be exceedingly
desirable all around, and it is to be hoped
that one or the otner will be adopted.
Alderman Corken presented the con
tact of the Gamewell fire and police
alarm system, and moved that a contract
h drawn for the system to be put in
within 90 days. Alderman Enox made
a motion that the system be guaranteed
for one vear. and in that form the con
tract was ordered made.

At Sundaj's meeting of the Twin-city
Typographical union the observance of
Labor diy the first Monday in Septem
ber was discussed. This year it is Mo
line's lurn again for the tri-city celebra
tion of this day. Therefore the Molme
members of the union were delegated to
onfer with the Moline carpenters' union.
the moulders, and the several employes'
aid associations of that city, to see what
is the general idea of how the day should
Some opposition to a picnic on Sylvan
island or elsewhere cropped out, as the
Moline organizttions have no special need
to make any money out of the day. Those
who oppose the picnic idea hold that the
talent of a good speaker would be prac
ticably wasted at such- picnics as have
heretofore oeen held. Their idea is to get
up an industrial procession or some at
traction in Moline, closing with an ad
dress on Market square from some elo
quent and widely-known orator.
The typographical union also adopted
a new constitution and by-laws, and
hereafter will pay sick benefits of per
week for periods not exceeding 10 weeks.
To get this the member must have a phy
sician's certificate, and his illness must
not result from intemperance.
F. S. McCoy. E. S. Shaffer. O. M.
Cloud&s, John Schlemmer and U. O.
Smith were appointed delegates to next
Sunday's meeting of the Tri-city Labor
congress. Frank Wheelan was named as
trustee for the union for the Industrial
Wrhxol F.lrrtloo Voting l"lao-s.
It was hoped that at last night's council
meeting some action would be taken urg
ing the importance of having seven vot
ing places at the coming election instead
of one as has been the custom, and which
has afforded opportunity for fraud and
the seating of one member last spring
against the popular will of the people, and
the defeat of one candidate who was in
reality the people's choice, and who had
been recognized as deserving of re election.
As has been said, the mayor has an
idea of designating three voting places
at the approaching election. The Ar
gus failB to realize how the evils of the
past are to be remedied by three voting
places. On the other hand it would
seem that such apian would offer oppor
tunities for still greater frauds, as with
out registration a number of illegal votes
would not only be cast in one place, but
C3uld be voted at all three places. It
would seem, therefore, that if the may
or's aim is to secure fair play, he should
designate a voting place in every ward, to
the end that only the legitimate voters of
each respective ward 6bould be entitled
to the privileges of the elective franchise
as in other elections.
Most of our readers will remember Seth
Morgan, a one horse lawyer who formerly
lived here and at one time was interested
in the old Gazette. He went from here
to Des Moines, where, after getting mixed
up in a seduction and bastardy case and
disbarment proceedings hv the Polk
county bar, be Ekipptd for Dsnver where
be now is. A letter has been received
in Res Moines by Police Judge Ezglestone
from Miss L zzie Smith of 1139 Broad
way, Denver, in which she said that
Morgan had been paying attention to her
for the past year with matrimonial intent,
that he said that he was a divorced mn
but that his character was stainless and
that she had been referred to the judge
for information by A. T. Cline an old
Des Moiner. She said she was induced
to write the letter because Morgan's
actions belied his words. The letter was
turned over to the Des Mo.aes chief of
police, who informed the innocent Denver
girl of Morgan's character and closed by
referring her to any officials or prominent
people in Des Moines for additional in
formaiion. It is hardly probible that
Morgan will succeed in leading this in
nocent girl to the altar after she gets this
letter. Davenport Tribune.
