The city council met ia semimonthly

When the ordinance of the street rail
way syndicate asking the right to aband
on its Ninth street line was presented
Alderman Geiger moved it be laid on the
table. Alderman Knox asked for an
explanation as to wby such an unheard of
disposition of the ordinance should be
desired. Alderman Geiger said the peo
ple on Ninth street wanted the road kept
there. Alderman Knox replied that
while that might be true it was not the
proper course, as shown by precedent or
otherwise, to table an ordinance without
considering it. He moved that it be re
ferred to the street and alley committee
and it was so referred.
The plat of Huber & Peetz addition to
the city of Rock Island, embracing the
property surrounding the old Davenport
homestead, was submitted with recom
mendations by the' street and alley com
mittee that it be adopted. Alderman
Huesing made a strong speech in behalf
of the plat. Alderman Corken made a
good argument in favor of having Fif
teenth street and some of the other streets
wider than the plat specified . Alderman
Tindall spoke in behalf of acceptance of
the plat. Capt. Peetz addressed the
council on behalf ;of the plat. It had
always been said that Bailey Davenport
had blocked public lmproyements by
hanging on to his land in Rock Island.
Now was a chance to get some of the
most desirable property of this estate on
the market. If the plat wa9 adopted 2D
to 25 houses would be erected this year.
The plat, after further discussion, was
Aid. Adams, than whom there is no
more earnest worker in the council,
thought a thunder bolt bad fallen in the
council chamber when his motion went
through with a whoop that Seventh av
enue between Thirtieth and Thirty-eighth
be put in a passable condition, without a
word being said about cost. The Seyenth
ward statesman, however.had not entirely
recovered from the eSects of his very
agreeable surprise when Alderman Hues
ing spoiled the whole tting by moying a
reconsideration, which the council
adopted. But Mr. Adams was not to be
so easily disposed of, and later in tbe
evening he succeeded in working ttrouch
a resolution that Seventh avenue be
properly improved, which was referred
to the street and alley committee. Alder
man Adams' efforts as regards Seventh
avenue are not without sound reason.
Seventh avenue ought to be improved in
Alderman Huesing called the council's
attention to the rail to be used by the Rock
Island & Milan street railway company
in relaying the track through the city.
The ordinance provided, Mr. Huesing
said, that nothing but a Johnston tram
rail be used so that teams could get in
and out easily.
Alderman Geiger said he was not satis
fied with the tew rail.
Alderman Huesing again took the
floor to condemn the rail. It was entirely
different from what he understood it was
to be, and he moved that the mayor be
instructed to have track-laying with this
kind of rail stopped and that none but
Johnston rail the tram of which shall be 2 j
inches in width be allowed, "and I further
move" said Alderman Huesing "that the
marshal be instructed to see that tbe
company don't put it down tonight."
Alderman Better could not see how the
council could consistently object to tbe
rail being used by the Milan road. He
considered it the best rail He had yet
seen, and be believed it would be a benes
fit to tbe city, rather than a detriment, to
have it used.
Alderman Corken . thought the new
rail was the newest and best rail made in
all particulars, and wished the city had
more of it. For paving it would be
especially advantageous, while it
was unobjectionable anywhere. Alderman
Huesing's notion was put on its passage,
and lost 8 to 6, Alderman Kennedy de
clining to vote until tbe council insisted
that be do so. The matter was then re
ferred to tbe street and alley committee.
After tbe council adjourned a number of
the aldermen inspected the rails as they
are distributed on Seventeenth street, and
if there were any doubt as to tbe feasi
bility of tbe rail it was soon dispelled. As
Alderman Evans, who had previously
voted for Alderman Huesing's resolution,
afterward said, "Why, that rail is just
what we want. Sure thing. It's tbe
best made and that's what we
want." The Fifth ward councilman was
right. The new rail is the latest and
most improved make. It is a 65-pound
girder and probably cost twice as
much as the Johnston rail. Greater
public spirit won Id have been evinced it
a resolution that it be used everywhere
in tbe city where new track is to be put
t-m, and tae heavier tbe tie'ter, should
bs the rule.
Tonight the council meets to make its
anna appropriations tbe most impor
tant business of the year. The fire de
partment and public library funds are
both expected to be considerably krger
than usual this year by reason of perma
nent improvements. It is to be h oped
tbe council, realizing the facts, will be as
liberal as it can consistently, witi these

was a ' "common. la marriage,"

the same from the groom's relatives; that
in 1SS2 her husband compelled her to

One hundred iron moulders in the em
ploy of the Union Malleable iron works
at Molice quit work at noon yesterday
and that department is locked up. Tbe
company, it is understood, gave notice
of a reduction of one cent on a certain
casting. This meant a drop from 6 to 5
cents on each piece, and they refused to
accept it. The union appo inted a com
mittee consisting of Messrs. Ben Frilling,
Pat Murphy and Abe Miles to confer
with the company. The foreman of the
moulders discharged a couple of men for
an alleged failure to obey orders. As a
result the force of moulders all struck at
noon, demanding that the men be taken
back. The claim of the men is that the
real cause of the discharge of the two
was that they were members of a commit
tee which waited on the company a few
weeks ago in regard to a readjustment
of wages at which time the company
conceded the demands. The matter is
being investigated, and there is good
prospect that it will be amicably ad
justed. The latest information that can be se
cured this afternoon is that the strike is
