Edwards & Walsh Cease Operations
on Twenty-Third Street.
The Mm Withdrawal at :3t this
Afteraoon mad the City Left In the
Loreh-Time for Determlaed
Ed wards & Walsh the contractors bav-i-jr
the paying extension ' on Fourth
avenue. Twenty-third street and Moline
avenue in charge ceased operations at
2 30 this afternoon within a short
distance of the middle of the block on
Twentythird street between Fourth and
Fifth avenues. Tools were packed up
aad the men withdrawn, going to their
homs in Davenport, leaving a pretty mud
dle on the city's hands. Mr. Walsh said
he would not come back until there wag
some solution of the difficulty. He sid
the case was between h'ra and ' the
city, not the street car company. It
seems that with proper tact and firmness
the mayor could have handled the case
by exercising the authority vested in him
after the failure of efforts to bring about
peace between the contractors and street
car people. As it is it will probably not
be settled now until the council meets
Monday night, when some action should
be taken looking not only ti settlement
of this case, but preventing a repetition
in the future.
The position maintained by Superin
tendent Scbnitger of the Davenport &
Rock Island street railway com
pany from the first has been
inn me contractors snouiu go
ahead and excavate the street car track
just as they started to do, and ta
has been the case heretofore, and that as
far as the Contractors are concerned, the
street should be excavated by them
whether there are car tracks or not, and
that the street car company will move
and (rrade the tracks as fast as excavated,
but that it can not proceed faster than
the excavation is made:
Mr. Walsh, of the contracting firm of
Edwards & Walsh, hold3 that the city
ordered the street car company to move
its tracks to the centre of the street on
Moline avenue and that he cannot pave
until tbis is done. lie says be is willing
to do the excavating, but that the street
c&r twopls delay him by not movins and
trading the tracks fast enough, and tbat
they should keep at least a block and a
half abead of him. He is perfectly wil
ling, however, to do the excavating, but
hi want tbe street car men kept out of
Really, after all. in view of these
statements of the case there don't seem to
be so much of a difference between the
waning elements after all. To a man tip
a tree it looks like a great deal of ado
about nothing, and the best thing tbe
mayor can do is either to bring Messrs.
Scbnitger and Walsh together and have
them settle their little spat and make up,
or else decide which is to blame and orler
him to proceed before tbe welfare of the
city luff era. It would be better for all
concerned if the contractors and street
car people could work together happily as
they have done before.
A Ota. Palace and a Plow Palace
NatE'Kted tn Connection With Onr
.Vit Year- Celebration.
In the discussion before the Rock Isl
and Improvement association Thursday
night of the Twin-City Columbian cele
bration, many novel feature were sug
gested as proper in connection therewith.
R. Cram pt on proposed a crystal palace
and the idea was kindly receiyed, while
another citizen spoke of a plow palace,
either one of these enterprises to be after
tbe plan of the Sioux City corn palace,
the Ottumwa coal palace, the Creston
gr6ss palace, etc. Others again favored
something entirely new as a permanent
annual twin-city attraction. Of course
all these suggestions will again come be
fore the association and if tbe two cities
determine to unite in a celebration next
year they will prove valuable to the com
mittee actively in charge of the arrange
ments. WILL XOT PAY WEEKLY.
Mr. !err Ssja That Moline Employ
ers Will Disregard th Xew lair,
C. H. Deere the well-known Moline
plow manufacturer, was at tbe Auditorium
yesterday. Before starting back home
he expressed bis opinion of the weekly
pay law passed at the last session of tbe
legislature. "The law," said he, "does
not affect Deere - & Co., who employ
about 800 men, for we have always paid
our employes weekly. But tbe general
rule among Moline manufsctnrers is to
pay every two weeks, and it is safe to
say tbat they will not change this
rule unless compelled to do so.
In other words I think the law
will be a dead letter in Moline. The
workmen there are perfectly satisfied
with present arrangements, as they are
always paid in full every payday. To
make payments oftener means simply ad
ditional bookkeeping and additional ex
pense. The Deere & ManBur compsny
has 300 employes; the Moline Wagon
company, 500; the Barnard & Leas com
pany, 250, and there are many smaller
concerns, all of whom pay every two
weeks. I do not think amy attention will
be paid this law in Moline." Chicago

Rck Island's new police patrol wagon
will be ready for delivery next Tuesday.
The council will undoubtedly instruct the
police committee and Chief Miller at its
seseion Monday night as to the disposi
tion of tbe present horse and tbe securing
of tbe necessary double team, and also as
to reconstruction of tbe stables in the rear
of the police station.
It is suggested tbat the best way out
of tbe difficulty between Messrs- Walsh
and Szhn itger is to order both before the
council Mocday night with two ounce
gioves, there and then to settle the matter
if they will bring their quarrels into
Rock Inland. Tbis view of the case will
no doubt meet tne approbation of one al
derman at least. '
Iu yiew of tbe fact that the old engine
house on the" northwest corner of Court
bouse square has caused the board of
supervisors 90 ttuch annoyance, would
not the quickest way out of the difficulty
be to demolish it. It is a public eyesore.
