Oa lower Second avenue, the Rockford
Construction company has completed two
blocks ami a half below Fourteenth, in
eluding the space between the car tracks
and reached the end of the double. The
company is doing a beautiful job and the
Rick Island brick used is ehowing up
nicely. Without the intervention of
something at present unforseen, three
weeks will witness the completion of the
On Fourth avenue east of Twentieth,
El wards & Walsh are making rapid head
way with the excavation and curbing.
Already lie entire street for two hlocks
has teen excavated with the exception of
the street car tracks, and the delay in this
particular is occasioned by the trouble in
getting ties, the company having realized
tbe necessity of doubling the number put
in when tbe track was originally laid. A
block of curbing has been put in and it is
understood that as soon as an intersec
tion is finished in Davenport, the firm
will put on a force of men in Rock Island
that will rush the paving at the rate of a
block and a half a wetk. Rock Island is
looking for great things from El wards &
Walsb. and the indications are that tbe
city is not to be disappointed.
Already there are 50 car loads of pav

that there is no prospect of delay because

A I'oliceman'a Prejudice.
While it may seem that the poor un
fortunate known as "Crazy Georqe," who
attacked two little boys on Second ave
nue yesterday afternoon, was only doing
what would be natural after being an
noyed by so many in the same way, jet
be should not be allowed to show such a
vicious disposition without being at least
maole acquainted with tbe fact that he is
violating the law in so doing. A citizen
who witnessed his violent outbreak yes
terday in whipping the little Gross boy
who resides on Third avenue, called on
Officer Glass to arrest the man, saying
he would appear against him, but
tbe offictr ignored the request and
when afterward questioned by another
citiz?n as to his seeming neglect of daty.
aaswered, "I wiU not arrest the man. for
him or you either." When it is consid

arrest made, belongs to a sect whom the
friends of G'.ass are prejudiced against.
it does not 6eem so strance. Tet tt
question naturally arises, is it necessary
for a person to renouuee his faith in
order to claim protection from an officer
