Paul Kersch, local editor of the Yolk
Zeitung, returned last evening from his
tour abroad in the interest of the Colum
bian Exposition Company of Chicago.
Mr. Kersch visited the chief cities of
Austria, Germany, France, Italy and
England, and talks entertainingly of his
journeyings. In Italy he says the pre-,
vailing sentiment among the better and
more sensible classes is that the ministers
of that country acted hastily and failed
to show good judgment in regard to the
recent New Orleans trouble. He says
that Rock Island is known everywhere
and that through the east commercial
travelers have given the city & reputation
for its beautiful park and street railway
There are no new developments in the
trouble between the street car company
and the paving contractors as regards the
grading and excavating of the street rail
way tracks, bath sides remaining obsti
nate. This morning Mr. Walsh, of the
contractors, served notice on the mayor
that unless the tracks were graded be
yond the middle of Twenty-third street
when be reached that point, he would
withdraw his men and cease operations .
The street car company is still holding its
men off and it begins to look now as if
if the city was going to get the worst of
it. That is what The Argus said yester
day'should not be allowed. It matters
not which of the contending parties is
right ia this matter, it seems that the
mayor ought to bring who ever is causing
delay to time, and let the work go on.
The intersection of Twenty-third and
Fourth was completed this morclng, and
the pavers started south on Twentx-third.
Unless the matter is adjusted by tomor
row the paving will be at a standstill.

While it the county farm Wadnesday,
the board of supervisors held a short ses
sion, when it was deemed advisable to
increase the size of the county poor farm
and for this purpose the board decided
to purchase 80 acres adjoining tbe pres
ent farm 'if it can be procured at an ex
pense of not more than f 3.0O0. A mo
tion was made to reconsider the action of
tbe previous day in adopting the report
of the cotimittee on equalization. Con
siderable discussion has been made over
this question at this session of the board.
The comciittee recommended "seven per
cent be added to the total assessed value
of lands, lots and personal proper
ty of South Moline." It also recom
mended "a reduction or two per
cent on lands in Canoe Creek,
two per cent, on lands in Zuma, two per
cent on lands in South Rock Island, and
two per cent, on lands in Drury. Thus
a reduction is made in the assessed value
of several townships that is made up in
part by an increase of the assessed value
of personal property in South Moline,
thus increasing the personal assessment
and decreasing that of the realty. Some
of the members contended that this is not
right and that the two species of prop
erty should have been equalized separ
ately. The motion to reconeider the
action of Tuesday failed and thus
report stands approved.
The board adopted a motion, also,
instructicg the proper officers of
county to take possession of the old Wide
Awake hose house in court house tquare
in the na ne of the county. The city of
Rock Islf nd, on adopting a paid fire
department system, disposed of its inter
est in tail building for $100, it having no
lease of tie ground. The board of su
pervisors last fall adopted a motion to
offer the purchaser $150 for the building
and in cae of non-acceptinre ordering
the removal of the building by May 1,
1891. 6 nee then nothing has been done
in the matter.
At jes erday afternoon's sestion of the
board of supervisors, the reports of tiie
committers on fees and salaries and poor
bills were approved, and an appropriation
of f 75 wiis made to Superintendent Mar
shall for ' he classification of iegisters to
enable hin to introduce the state course
of study .ntho ungraded schools. The
board als ) reconsidered its action of tb
day previous ia regard to the purchase of
additional land at the poor farm, and ac
cordingly no more will be purchased at
preseat. The stales attorney shaving
expressed his opinion that the city had no
right to sell the hose house on court house
square, tne board accordingly instructed
tae shed I to take possession of it, which
he did vesterday afternoon. This morn
ing's session was devoted to the usual
closing routine business Supervisor
Ludolph made a motion that the county
sell the hose house on Court house square,
but the n otion was lost by a vote of 23

Synopsis of the l'roceedingrs of the St.
ST. PAUL, July 17. The editorial con-
veniion yesterday discussed tne propel
manner of treating scandals, crimes, sni
cides, etc., and a resolution was seat to
the appropriate committee favoring the
U3e of a blue pencil freely oa all that kind
of "oopy." It was proposed that the dc
tails be Btricfejivout every time in the in
terest of pure journafom. Some discus
sion was had on advertisements in patent
insiaes ror country weeklies, and Gov
ernor Hoard 8toka aralnat thpnv W.
D. H.Hunter, of the Lawrence (Ind. Reg
ister, defended the press from the attacks
oi clergymen who denounce it as a power
for evil. He thought nothing should be
printed that could not safely be read by
every member of the editor s family.
An Advertising Agent Heard.
Thero haa been several sharn attju-ks on
the advertising agents during the session
and at the request of a number of dele
gates Frank Richardson, a special adver
tising agent of New York, read a paper on
"Advertising." It was a strong defense
oi general advertising agents and theii
clients. The greatest difficulty, he said.
was that the country papers did not reply
to inqairiea sent for advertising. He
thought foreign advertisements should
get a cheaper rate because rhe local adver
tiser had the whole field, but the foreigu
oAivc mser naa Dut a specialty to oirer.
