LOOKS LIKE A GO.
Moline Continues to Endorse
Silver Brick Idea.
The Republican-Joarnal KathOHtiC-
t'c Ovrr tt Proposition Vbll
the Diapateb Takes Klnd'y !
and Off y a MorfsUib.
The idea of joining the pavement of
Rock Island & Molioe by means of a
brick of silver, looks like a go. la 21a
line the proposition is apparently en
dorsed as it should be here.
The Republican-Journal of last even
ing copies Thb Argus' remark of Tues
day evening and adds these comments:
The suggestion of The Arocs is a com
mendable one, and Moline is glad to see
that tne Rock Island paper has progressed
sufficiently to look upon Moline as a sister
city city worthy to be met by her
elder neighbor on even ground. We be
lieve we can speak for the progressive
thinking people of Moline in endorsing
the silver brick idea, symbolizing a esti
mate that is very becoming to a pair of
municipalities whose lives are cemented
not only by geographical considerations,
but also by common social and business
ties. But as to the time of the ceremonv.
while not of so much importance, we are
inclined to think it would be wise to
have it take place at the time of the
completion of the Rock Island paving
to the Moline line, whenever that may
be, and that the precious block should
constitute the last brick uniting the two
cities by a continuous street. The Fourth
of July, it is true, would be an appropri
ate day for such a demonstration, pro
vided we would not have to wait too
long after the road between the two cit
ies shall have been completed.
However, since the idea has originated
with ourfcontemporary, and not with us.
we are willing to waive this considera
tion, which is of secondary importance
to the main suggestion.
Let Moline show a proper spirit in this
matter, and promptly respond to the
friendly overture of our neighbors. Tne
Business association should take the mat
er in band and appoint a committee to
confer with a simi'ar committee from
Rock Is' and and make such arrangements
as may be deemed feasible at th:s eu.j
The D.spatch. too, endorses the propo
s:tion, and makes the suggestion that the
demonstration inc'ule Davenport, and
that the three cities ioin in a celebration
annually, each city taking its turn in con
ducting it. The Akots would bs the
last to object to a tri-city Fourth of Ja!y
celebration of such a niture as the D.s
patch propases. but the fact that Daven-
port rejected the overtures made by Rocs
Island last fill to join it in its autumnal
festivities hereafter, does not ad
mit of much room for the
belief that that city would take kindly
to a demonstration not of a loci!, but a
national nature in which each of the three
cities would have iqual standing. How
ever.THE Argus says let Davenport come
in if it will, but whether it dots or sot.
Rock Island is "ii it" for the silver brick
and the Fourth o! JuTy demonstration in
the Columbian year, and The Arocs does
not propose to recede from its position in
advocating both. A'luding to the remark of
the Republican -Journal of the possibility
of the pavement of the two cities beijs
united before the Fourth of July, 1S92.
The Argus conSientiy offers the as
surance that there is not much danger of
this. The paving on Moliae avenue does
not go beyond Thirty-eight street this
year, and if that is done, it will leave just
enough work to be completed about the
Fourth of July next year, and not minh
before . All things considered , therefore.
The Argus sees no reason why the silver
brick should not be laid with imposing
ceremonies on July 4. 1392.
We und rstand that vnotber transfer of
properly will soon happen in our village
as it is said that 8. rjtocum & Son have
sold out their entire meat market sni
equipments to James Tew.
The board of rchool trustees have
s lected teachers for the high and primary
rooms. Owing to havlna fomnny eppli
cations they have deferred he selection
of a teacher for the intermediate depart
ment. The M. E. church choir, of Albany,
gave a very edifying vocal an t instru

UNLIKE TEA & COFFEE GOOD FOR THE NERVES.
The claims of cocoa as a useful article of diet are steadily
winning recognition. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not only a
stimulant but a nourisher; and it has the great advantage" of
leaving no narcotic effects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. 1 he strong may take it with pleasure, and the n-eai
