EAC RKIGNS AGAIN.
The Street Paving Troubles Ann
Tbauaii Sot Uam Firth A venae was
Cloned by the City Work to ro
rerd la the Mornta; Air Welt
That Ead Well.
Tbe troubles between the Davenport &
Rock Island street railway company and
tbe contractors, Edwards & Walsh, re
garding tbe conditions of tbe paving on
Moline avenue east of Twenty-third
street have been amicably adjusted.
Peace reigns again and tomorrow morning
the work of paving, suspended at 2:30
Saturday afternoon by the contractors
will be'resumed. All day yesterday the
matter was discussed by the various
parties interested. This morning a con
ference was held at the mayor's office, his
honor, the contractors, Messrs Elwards
& Walsh and Superintendent Schnitger
of the Davenport & Rock Island street
railway company being present, but no
terms could be agreed upon. Finally
tbe mayor made a move such
as he should have several days' ago,
and which this morning brought a
prompt adjustment of the case. The
mayoratll30 ordered the closing of
Moline ayenue W8t of Twenty-fourth,
at which point the excavation ceases,
closed, and accordingly Marshal Miller
and Street Superintendent Blaisdell erect
ed a fence across the street. This "'shut
off all travel, including the street cars,
and the obstruction was hardly up until
the street car folks sought a settlement.
The contractors.too, seeing that there was
likely to be a siege and that operations
might be delayed longer than they calcu
lited were willing for an adjustment of
the difficulty. Th?re was a mutual
agreement to a temporary opening of the
street, and the embargo was raised after
had to been on 15 minutes. A
meeting was immediately held at
the power station of the Divennort &
Ro:k Island Street Railway company, at
which there were present the mayor,
Messrs. Edwards, Walsh, Louderback
aad Schnitger. There were a lew con
cisions', on ooth sides and just a tbe
arseoal clock tolled the hour of high noon
tie conferees emerged into tbe street with
aiiling countenances. Messrs. Walsh
and S.hnitger had smoked the pipe of
peice and all was again serene. The
s t-eet car company agreed to pay the
contractors a few cents for excavating be
tween tbe tracks in addition to the cost
contracted for paving and to keep out of
the way of paving in moving and grading
the tr icks.
Tomorrow morning operations will be
resumed and henceforth it will probably
KO forward without interruption or delay.
The council will not undergo the ordeal
of adjusting the difficulties as seemed im
minent up to noon today.
The Argus is informed the mayor ob
jected to the matter coming before the
council, maintaining that it is a question
solely for the executive department of the
city to settle. Tbe mayor would be right
in such a position and The Abgcs should
think he would very greatly regret the
necessity of the council disposing of a
subject which called for the exercise of
the functions of the mayoralty.
In hie attitude in this matter tbe mayor
ta? again shown his lamentable weakness
and lack of executive force. The Arods
has endeavored from the first to give both
sides of the controversy between the
paving contractors and street railway
company without bias or prejudice to
ward either, and it must confers a failure
so far to discern a sufficient eround for
contention. Nor is this paper inclined to
blame either inasmuch as the city
failed to exercise its authority in tbe
premises in relation to the guarding of its
own interests. To the mayor, seems to
belong the blame for the delay
as he permitted too much non
sense from both sides and probably
subjected the city to redicule in tbe
minds of both the contending parties.
Tee mayor should have considered the
various phases of the contention between
the 6ireet car people and the contractors
at the start, told both firmly what their
duties were and then insisted on both ful
filling their obligations to the city. Tbe
city is absolute judge of tbe situation as
to both the street car company and the
contractors. The street car people were
standing.by their rights as they saw them;
so ere the contractors. The city should
in tbe first place have stepped in and
insisted upon its rights which are more
important than either, and thus settle
tbe trouble. Bad the mayor taken a
stand in tbe matter, and had be failed, in
his position tien it should have come be-
fore tbe council otherwise not.
Mrs. Frederick Kramer, residing at 751
Fourteenth and-a-half street, attempted
to commit suicide about 11 o'clock this
morning by drawing a razor . across her
left wrist. Dr. Eyster was immediately
summoned and dressed tbe wound and
the lady is yet very weak from the loss
of blood. No cause is assigned for ber
act. though it is supposed to result from
aberration of the mind.

The Grand Circle of White Men is an
insurance organization composed of
about 4.000 members, the plan of insur
ance being similar to the Woodmen, but
there are no local lodqes, the association
being represented in each town by a col
lector, who transacts the business of the
members in that town: There are a
large number of members in and about
Rock Island, acd a short time ago all
the members of the organization received
circulars from the manager recommend'
isg that they consolidate with the Frank
lin Insurance company of Springfield.
The plan of consolidation did not strike
Sheriff Gordon, who is a member
of the organization, as just right and he
accordingly notified the members to be
present at tbe sheriff's office on Saturday
evtnins to hear tho plan explained by R.
M. Stover, of Rockford, general secretary
of the association. About 75 of the
members were present and after bearing
an explanation of the proposed consoli
dation ami a general discussion as to its
feasibility, a vote was taken which re
sulted in the members unanimously
agreeing to re rutin in tbe first named or
ganization as it is in a good financial
condition and is giving entire satisfacs
tion to its members.
W. P. Quujle, for nine years in charge
of the advertising department of The
Argus, Saturday evening purchased the
well known weekly paper known as the
Rock Islander for t3 000, and will assume
possession with the first of the month.
Mr. Quayle is a man of a practical ex
perience in tbe newspaper field and it is
tardly necessary to say that his work on
Tee Abgus has been satisfactory to an
eminent degree. He is possessed, too, of
those pereonal characteristics which win
the good will and confidence of business
men, and in bis new venture he has not
only tbe heartiest good wishes of The
Argus, but its confident belief that he
will make his paper a success. In the
same spirit The Argus congratulates the
Rock Islander as well as the people of
Rock Island on tbe change of proprietor
ship. A Peculiar Aeeltfent.
Andrew Burg, a sawyer in the Rock
Island Lumber company's mills, met with
a peculiar accident about 8;30 o'clock last
evening. He had been down to the river
shore at tbe foot of Ninth street, and
when climbing up tbe bank, which is
very steep at that point, he lost his foot
ing and rolled down the bank, a distance
of about 20 feet striking his head against
some stones at the bottom. He was
picked up and taken to his room in the
residence of John Malgreen, 832 First
avenue, where he was attended by Dr.
Eyster who found that beyond a few
bruises about the head be was not serious
ly injured and it is thought he will be
around again in a few days.

The company claims the men have
not struck, but have simply quit

no reference to the firm but that a prop
