GEO. F. ROTH,
At last night's C3uncil meeting when
the ordinance of the Davenport & Rock
Island street railway company to change
its Elm street line to Nineteenth between
Fifth and Sixth acd Sixth from Nine
teenth to Twentv-nrst was presented by
Ala. Kennedy, of the committe to whom
it was referred. Aid. Coiken moved its
passage. Aid. Huesing objected to the
passage of tbe ordinance on the ground
that tbe company had no rights here, as
he put it, because i be old ordinance had
not been complied with as to 15 minute
cars; because the ordinance provided for
a girder tram rail, and because, as he
tbought, Sixth avenue was too narrow
just at that place where the street car
company desistd to occupy it. fie there
iore moveo. 10 lay tue ordinance on the
table. Aid. Thiesen promptly seconded
the motion, but it was lost by a vote of 8
Aid. Adams thought the company
should have the privilege of makine the
changes if it would be of benefit to the
company, and accommodation to the
public. lie thought Sixth avenue was
not too narrow, that tbe company was
not to blame because it did not run cars
promptly on its Elm street and Ninth
street lines as it ha 1 had too much to do,
and if tbe rail was the only difficulty the
council could insert that Johnston tram
rail be used .
Supt. Huntoon, cf the syndicate Milan
line, was present aad his opinion was
sought on to the company's intention as
to the rail to be nsel and be assured the
council that the Johnston girder tram
rail such as used on Second avenue was
tbe rail contemplated, and that the Fowler
box rail used on .ihe Milan, read as at
present would be too expensive. Elec
trical Engineer Fre lericks substantiated
these remarks. All. Adams suggested
that the ordinance be worded to provide
for. Johnston girder rail and that the
road be completed within 90 days. Mr
iiunioon was assca it Uie company
could accept the, ordinance under these
conditions and be said be had no author
ity lo speak on that question.
If you have no authority to speak,
what are you talkit g for?' said Aid.
Huesing fiercely. '"We don't want people
talking here who do not speak authorita
tively." and Mr. Huntoon said no more.
Aid. Corken and Kennedy spoke in
favor of granting the ordinance. The
company really ought to be allowed to
take its track back to Seventh avenue.
Aid. Bladel and T n Jill explained that
the only objection tley had to the ordi
nance was the widlb of Sixth avenue.
Aid. Kennedy moved that the ordi
nance be granted on condition that the
street cur company pive its tracks.
"I second that," (aid Aid. Huesing,
only that tbe street cir company be or
dered to pave its tracks."
Finally on motion of Aid. Knox the
ordinance was referred back to tbe corn-
mittee to report at the next meeting.
The ordinance for "be paving of Market
'square was submitted, and considerable
speech making followed.
Aid. Kennedy stated that be had made
careful inquiry of the property holders
and be believed the I reference was for
a double course of Gtlesburg brick.
Aid. Tindall, Knox and Evans spoke in
favor of Galesburg brick believing it
would better suit the wishes of the prop
Aid. Corken was in favor of obtaining
the sentiment of the property holders in
the shape of a petition.
Aid. Bladel coeden ned the work of
Edwards & Walsh on Moline avenue in
which Galesburg brick is being used, ex
pressing his belief that tbe contractors
were not doing an borest job.
Aid. Knox bad nothing against tbe
Rockford Construction company, but d d
not like the quality of the brick put in on
Twentieth street, altbc ugh the workman
ship was all right.
O.her remarks weie made by A'd.
Huesing, Corken and Kennedy, and af
ter Mr. Butterworth, of the Rockford
company, had expressed a desire that the
council delay awarding the contract no
longer, but reject bis bid if such was the
desire, the contract was awarded to
Edwards & Walsh for double course of
Galesburg brick, tbe v ork to be com
pleted in 30 days.
It was also decided to put up a re
spectable looking wulghmsstei's quar
ters of brick, or of fra ne covered with
slate or corrugated iror.. This will be a
great improvement and will obviate tbe
necessity of removing the scales to do
away with a nuisance.

The remains of tbe unfortunate brake
man, Henry Limburg airived at 6:45 this
morning over the C, B. & Q. and the
funeral occurred from Lis parents' home
on Sixth avenue at 2 o'clock this after
noon. The floral efferiags were profuse
and beautiful, and tbe interment was made
in Chippiannock cemetery, some very
touching remarks being made at the grave
by John Vandruff, of Davenport. The
rollowinx gentlemen were pall beaters:
John Letlig. Matthew Hogan. Ctmles
Pfoff, Joseph Gavin, Edward Limp and
Robert "Williams. , j j
The remains arrived in this' 'city in

On train No. 1 of the Rock Island
which reached Rock Island at 7:30 last
night was an nnconscious man who had
been found in that state in a cornfield
near Colona, carried to that place and
put on the rin for Rock Island. Con
ductor Forton nut the m&n oil at the
Rock Island depot and the p6lice station
beinguotifiedCa.pt. Long conveyed him
to the armory in the patrol wagon. He
was made as comfortable as pons Ue on a
cot, but up to tbe time of going to press
had not regained consciousness and Dr.
Oyster, who is attending him has pro
nounced tie ailment concussion of the
brain and it is the physician's belief ttat
the man cannot live, that he is gradually
dying, though tbe:e is a possibility of h s
rallying. Tbe doctor has done all he can
for tbe poor fellow who appears to be
suffering greatly. The man seems to
have been struck on the head, as while
there are no bad cuts or bruises a num
ber of bumps are perceptible.
The man is about 35 to 40 years of age and
appears to be a farm laborer. His name
irom letters round in a bundle of neat
clothiDg which he carried, shows his name
to be Jesse A. Miles, at one time of Dav
enport, from which be has evidently been
away for several years, in which time he
has from direciions been at Galaton. Mo ,
Horton, Kan., and Rome, N. Y. There
are some letters from Mary L. Neuhaus,
of Davenport, which, although of a very
affectionate tone, he appears never to
have answered. Yet they were written
several years ago. One is signed a niece,
Jennie Miles in -Davenport, and one
from a brother, C. M . Miles, at Bureau,

factory service. He also had a Rock

ily, and a railroad ticket from Chicago to
Rock Island, dated Nov. 3, 18S5.
He appears to be a man who has been
going about through the country, and
was evidently 'raaKing his way home-

ious manner, but whether he has been
foully dealt with or not is not known.
