Edwards & Walsh Get Into Moline
The Woi It to be I'ushrd More Rapidly
Sow The C mple'ion ef Lower
Edwards & Walsh put in the Intersec
tion of Twenty-third street and Moline
avenue today and now tbey consider the
worst part of their paving contract done.
The Davenport & Rock Island Street
:lway company has its double tracks
moved to the middle of tbe avenue and
graded for at least a block in advance of
e contractors and will keep prob
ably a block and a half ahead of
the pavers hereafter. The wnrtr nf
paving will now proceed with
out any more delay than can be ' helped,
and as far east on the avenue as can be ac
complished this season. With the be
ginning of nest season, tbe work will be
taken up where it stops this year and
hurried through to the Moline line.
before July 4, wben the silver brick lay-
ng ceremonies will take place, in all
probability, the feeling in favor of such a
demonstration in connection with the
Columbian celebration growing in both
Kock Island and Moline. The Argus is
confident of the success of such an under
taking and hopes it will not be lost sight
of in connection with the arrangements
for the twin city Columbian jubilee which
is beiieved to be practically assured.
As has hertofore been stated, the
Ilcckford Construction company has
completed the paving of Second avenue
from Fourteenth to Ninth streets, and
the work is such as tbe company may
take prida in. This finishes the under
taking upon which the Rockford Con
struction company entered last year.
The company put in nine blacks on
Twentieth street and five on Second ave
nue, making in all 14 blocks or' over a
mile of paverrent in the city in which
Rock Island brick were used.
The effect of travel on this quality of
paving brick wiil probably be watched
more closely than anywhere else in tbe
city, and all will join in the fervent hope
tbat it may prove aj that has been ex
pected of it, not only because of local
pride in tbe material, but because of the
spirit or friendliness naturally existing
toward the company which has shown en
terprise and confidence in the city in bet
coming extensively interested here. Be
cause of this fact The Akgcs has cheer
fully overlooked delay on the part of the
company, believing the same 6pirit of
good will and patience should be shown
it that is due any outside enterprise . ins
vesting heavily in the city, and which tbe
city is always anxious to secure.
At the next meeting of the city council
the contract will in all lifelihood be let for
tbe paving of Market square. Tbe stip
ulation should, and probablv will be.
made that the work be done at once and
the work entrusted only on satisfactory
assurance of fulfillment of those conditions.
Tbe council has already passed ordi-
nancesforthepavingof Third avenue from
Twenty-fourth to Ninth, of Nineteenth
from First to Third and of Commercial
alley from Second to Third, the idea
being that the contract for the work shall
be given so that it may be done early
next season. Another ordinance is now
in order providing for the paving of East
and West Seventeenth from First to Sec
ond, of Fourteenth from First to Third,
and of Fifteenth from First to Third.
This work can all be done without cost
ing the city a cent for intersections, and
with it completed and - what is already
done, would find the entire business cen
ter of the city and a large portion of the
resident part, paved a year from this

LUMBER PLANT PLANS.
n)erhassr's Operation at Little
Falls and What Tut y Indicate.
Tbe following dispatch from the St.
Paul Pioneer Press from Little Falls is
interesting as indicative of the plans un
der consideration by Frederick Weyer
hauser of this city, for tbe estabiishmen t
of an immense lumbering manufacturing
It is plain to be seen by anyone who
has noticed the quiet but vigorous move
ments of the Weyerhauser syndicate at
this plsce tbat they are laying the foun
dation for an immense lumber business
in the near future at this point.
Having secured about 12 miles of the
best boomage on the Mississippi river
covering,the laae formed by the construc
tion of tne water power companv dam
here they have purchased the N. P.
Clark saw mill, planing mill and dry kilns,
together with the adjoining grounds for
lumber yard, all being on the eastern bank
of tbe Mississippi. They at once put in
new and improved machinery, substitut
ing band saws in place of rotaries, thus
adding about 80 men. Tbat not be
ing sufficient tcey put in electric
lights and now run mills night and day,
doubling tbe force of men employed.
They have also purchased a large tract
of ground along tbe west bank of tbe
river, with the tracks of the Little Falls
&, Southern, the Northern Pacific and the
Little Falls & Dakota railroads passing
through it, thus giving ample rail and
water facilities, and the extent of these,
grounds is sufficient to manufacture
thereon as much lumber as is annually
cut by all the mills of Minneapolis com
bined. Their present mill getting out the
timber and lumber required for the con
struction of these big mills on the west
side, which will be ready for operation
early in tbe spring. They have also
commerced on piers and booms for the
very extensive sorting works some five
miles up tbe river at the commencement
of tbe slack water made by tbe lake,
caused by the dam of the Little Falls
Water Power company, and here will be
sorted out from their logs tbose going on
to down riyer points.
While those belonging to this syndicate
will be stored within their capacious
boom limits, which are estimated to bold
between tour and five hundred million
feet, this unequaled storage facility will
enable them to tret in a season's 6upplyof
logs with tbe high water of early summer
and hold the same for later use, wben the
drives for Minneapolis and other down
river points are hung up on account of
In selecting Little Falls for their large
lumber manufacturing operations this
syndicate has certainly figured the entire
problem over very carefully, aod taken
advantage of tbe manv favorable circum
stances found here, and their comprehen
sive plans foreshadow important addi
tions and changes in tbe future lumber
output of tbe northwest.
