New Thoroughfare Between

GEO. F. BOTH,
tJa;kn& Hurefg office,
One of the most important acts of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improyement assos
ciation at its last meeting was tbe fixing
as the spe cial object of discussion before
tbe next meeting of tbe association the
improvement of a thoroughfare between
Rock Island and Moline, a through ave
nue for travel apart from those traversed
by street cars or closely paralleling the
rifrht of ways of steam engines. That
guch an avenue is needed is conceded by
both cities, the idea in fact that it should
be provided being first presented by
reDresentative citizens of Moline at tbe
time of the consolidation meetings two
years ago. Tbe question now is which
avenue I shall be improved. Sixth or
"Why don't you talk Sixth avenue.'
said an ex-alderman in talking on the
project with an Argus reporter the other
day. "That ould only require the op
ening of a few blocks and then you have
ber right through."
"Seventh avenne ought to be opened
and that pretty soon," said another citi
zen who rides about a good deal, this
morning. "I have reference to that part of
it between Thirtieth and Thirty-eighth.
Beyond Thirtieth street itis practically im
passable, and if it is not improved Jaoon,
we will have no way of driving belweeen
tbe two cities while Moline avenue is
torn up for paving east of Twe nty-sixth
There are various plans on foot for the
putting in of this missing link between
tbe two cities. Seventh avenue seems
to offer the best solution of the difficulty,
and there are numerous opinions as to
bow best this can be done. One is to put
it in temporary condition east of Thir
tieth, and then prepare it for boulevard
ing, and pessibly paving with a single
course ot bncK next year, the most pop
ular idea being to boulevard it on either
si.le as far as Tbirty-eigbth and boulevard
it in tbe center or car track space from
that street east.
In view of tbe rapidly approaching
need of a new avenue to Moline, perhaps
it might be well that action be taken
sooner tban was originally intended.
The Trl City Linen.
A special dispatch from Dayenport to
tJdaj's Chicago Tribune formally an
nnunces the property and lines of the
Davenport & Rock Island railway for
sale, thus verifying the announcement
first published in The Abgus that there
was a possibility of the lines being sold
The Tribune's correspondent announces
that Mr. Louderback's reason for selling
out is that the council has not treated him
right. This is undoubtedly true
as to Davenport, but it most em
phatically is not so as to Rock Island, as
the small opposition which has been
shown to him in the council here has no
weight whatever either with the remain
der of tbe aldermen or the community,
wherein the kindlest feelings exist
toward the company for its public spirit
and liberal nolicy toward all the three
cities. It is equally true that the best
franchises the company owns are the lines
on this side of the river, and tbe bridge
line. Rock Island is not to blame for
the narrow minded, short-sighted dispo
sition of tbe South Rock Island road
commissioners, and no where is their con
duct more generally condemned than in
Rock Island, a city which welcomes out
side capital, and in which the element
which seeks to stand in the city's way by
antagonizing public enterprises, such as
our street railway system, is happily in a
hopeless miaority. Suck has so far been
tbe case In Rock Island and such let us
hope it will continue to be.
It would be worth thousands of dollars
to this community not to have these lines
sold either to local or outside capitalists.
It is a damaging blow that the company
should feel itself obliged to place Its
property on the market, and any who
have, by word or act, attempted to dis
courage or burden tbe company have
simply struck more at the city in which
they live than at the company, which has
helped it more than they.
Heary County' Largest Church.
"The largest church in Henry county,"
says the Geneseo News, ' is in the small
est town in the county. It is a Swedish
Lutheran church at Andover. It is by
far the largest and wealthiest church. It
has an organ that cost f 2,500. By the
way, the first church of this denomina
tion in Andover was built by Jennie
Lind, when Barnum had her in this
country 40 years ago. Jenny was a
Swede and a very devout member of tbe
Swedish Lutheran church. She passed
through this country and found at An
dover a poor and struggling organization.
Tbe noble-beartedi woman built a church
for this people. It is made of grout and
is still standing. Now the church is
amply able to take care of itself; but it
always remembers and loves sweet Jen

General Superintendent Henry Schnit-
ger, of tbe Davenport & Rock Island
railway company, parted company yes
terday with associations of many years'
standing. Old Joe Hooker, a mule which
has figured conspicuously iu the annals
of street car locomotion in Davenport for
over a quarter ot a century, was disposed
of, along with the other stock
made useless by tbe introduction of elec
tricity as a motive power. Supt.
Scbnitger, in whose employ old Joe h ad
been for all these years, first on the old
Third street line over there, wheniichnit-
ger was superintendent and lessee of it,
heaved a big sigh when he saw the last
of the beast, ugly as he was in appearance
and disposition, for Schnitger is a great
man for sticking to old associations.
Nevertheless, however, Henry realized
it was for the best that it should be so,
and sent Joe of! with his best wishes that
his future might be cast in pleasant
What followed the Democrat can best
Tbe event of the dav was the sale of
eld Joe Hooker. Joe Hooker is a mule
who settied in Davenport some Si years
ago, and who has been, for alt these years,
inseparably connected with the Third
street car lice. He has grown up with
it, from youth to old age. and the best
years of his life have been spent in its
service, lie has trave.ed in that time a
distance sufficient to girdle the earth sev
eral times, and he has taken in fares
enough to build a brick block five stories
high. He has not been a pleasant mule
to do business with, especially along
toward the latter end. He has seemed to
grow more morose and crabbed as he felt
his ape stealing on, and has looked with
increasing suspicion on mankind and its
specious efforts to conciliate him. He
has always enjoyed a reach of hoof that
made him feared and reerectsd, if not
beloved, and this special feature he dis-
plavcd yesterday afternoon in a manner
that won for him fresh laurels.
Tbe man who bought him for that
thought he had a bargain and
rushed into the otlice at Lorton Bros, to
report tbe sale to Treasurer Ilulbert of
the company. He led Fighting Joe
Hooker behind, innocently supposing
Joe would be awed into submission. In
stead ( i that there was a sudden scatter
ment of the crowd, and the tatoo of i
pair of hard hoofs beating and battering
at everything within a rod. TLe treas
urer fl-d through a hole so small it
wouldn't have let him out of jail if he
had been in. the new purchaser disap
peared, and the office was left in tbe old
hero's possession. A few minutes later
the purchaser had seen enough of Old
Joe and sold him to another equally con
riding man, who in turn soon got enough
of his bargain and sold him again to an
other man for half a dollar. The old
fellow refused to leave the road on which
he had spent a lifetime, but finally had to
yield. It is to be hoped that he may not
be allowed to suner or die on, tbe com'
mons. lie has earned a pension .1 he is
a chronic kicker.
Ti.e Horrid Kodak.
Detective Devereau claims that he has
photographs of every person with whom
he played poker during his professional
visit here. Not only this, but he informs
a Moline Republican-Journal man that
be had views of the tables and tbe group
of gamblers that surrounded tbem. He
claims to have even caught the self-satisfied
expression of tbe lucky ones who
were showing down "full houses" and
fours, as well as the woe begone look of
those who were dropping their week's
wages as fast as they could shell out.
This he claims to have accomplished by
means of a button hole detective camera.
He says these photographs will be intro
duced as evidence at tbe proper time if
tbey are needed to corroborate hts testimony.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless tha im
ftammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition.
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh.
which is nothing but an inflamed condii
tion of tbe mucous surface.
We will give 100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarib) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.
