that the Moline association would come

suggestions of Secretary Porter' letter
were unanimously approved, and it was

with a view to determine the feasibiliv
of straightening, widening, grading and

your committee did meet on the above date
with all members present, except Quslav
Stengel, and.in company with his honor,
Wr. MConfrhie, mayor of the city of
Rock R;ai.d, City Engineer Paddock and
the itiembera of the committee on streets

to Seventh avenue and after carefully
looking over the ground adjourned to

Your cnmm;ttac then fore investigated
the amount of excayation and cutting
that would be necefSiry in cutting down
Seventh avenue, as in their minds it
would be tLe only available avenue that
at it.o present time could b so improved
as o be of adv-.ntae to th" puMic, and
find that to reduce the said Seventh ave
DU3 to a 4 per cent grade would h:n
q.,:r ,t.. .x-rition of 61,000 cu'nc
jards; tna: .y the eXCiVitioa of 46.000
cubic yards a 5 per cent grads could be
established, making a difference of 15.
t 00 cubic ysrds, as between a 4 and 5
per cent crtdc.
Now, therefore, we think it advisable
and would rtxomitcnd that Seventh ave
nue east (if Twentieth street he straight
ened; that the grad be reduced to a 4
pprct;ut grade; that a right of way be se
cured of 100 f.:et, but that aa excavation
be made bur, 60 feet wide, requiring the
removal of 61,000 cubic yards, and that
the said tvenue be boulevarded from
Thirty eighth street east to the bound
ary between the cities of Moline and Rock
It was a!so reported that one member
of the committee had a minority report
favoring a 5 per cent grade, but it was
not preseui'-d, and Dr. Paul spoke at
length urging the importance of the im
provement end esiimating the aggregate
cost at not over f 12,000. R. Crampton
spoke ia favor of the project alsi.
Manager Jesperson, of Augustana
college, stated this improvement was
one which the college had been looking
for and waiting for.for 15 years. An in
stitution such as he represented, he held,
ongat to present a better front. He spoke
of tiie very srreat desirability of a nea:
end pss-nb e taoroughfare past the col
lege. I. was indeed necessary that some
thing be done if R ck Island would keep
the cjlUge here iu i's present aivtncmg
condition. Ia '93 there would be a grtvat
jubilee at the college when 5 00d sirar
gcr3 are ixpected, and the faculty would
be Ks-hitned to welcome visitors with the
streets oui'. il tue college in their present
Condition. Mr. Jesperson also spoke ' at
leegth of the growth of the college ia the
past 10 years, and how greatly those who
had its management in hand. felt the neg
lect that had been shown ia this matter of
Seyen'h aveuim, and ii was ueartily
applauded a hen he finished his remarks.
It was at this juncture that SI. E
Se ney spoke his piece, which b .s been
the tiiik of -til who heir ! it err s'nee.
It was never known before that the ex
city attorney aspired to be a wit, but his
studied effort of last evening
fully illustrated that there was
a glowing will there to so appear
if not a brilliant way. Mr. Sweeney
ccmmenccd by visionary landscaping.
Then al.er bis nearers had louuu lueir
bearings he paid his respects to the Union
street railway, the city of Rock Island
and the property holders, all of whom :n
their turn came in for a share of the
speaker's caustic sarcasm (T)
It happened that there was one repre
sentative of the city counc.l present in
the person of Aid. Kennedy, who proper
ly and quite forcibly, resented Mr.
Sweeney's unnecessary and unwarranted
reflections upon the city, and who de
fended the council's position in the premises
in a manner that onght to tickle the pride
of that body. Mr. Kennedy also ex
plained that the council had realized the
necessity of action relative to 8eventh
avenue and had contemplated doing it by
special assessment, but as that would
strike the college harder than it ought to,
it was thought of tpecial taxation, the
city not desiring to depart from its establ
ished policy relative to permanent im
provements. Mr. Jesper9on did not thick the
college could ff jrd to pay for its portion
of thj work by special assessment three
blocks, and ought not to.
J. C. Rasmussen held to the idea that
the city should not deviate from its posi
tion of making permanent street improve
ments by special assestment. The prop
erty holders up that way were fully able
to bear thiir share; as for the college, be
thought its proportion could be readily
met by popular subscription.
Further remarks were made by Oliver
Olsen. A. M. Blakesley, Puil M uhell, A.
C. Dart, V.'illiam Jackson and S. W.
Soarle aud finally a motion by Rev." V.
S. Marquis that the repor. of the com
mittee be received, the recommendations

The association allowed its monthly

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflimed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tuoe gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearins. and when it is entlrelv closed
deatness is the result, and sinless th3 ira
flammalion can be taken out and this
lube 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
lion of the mucous surface.
We will cive flOO for any case of
desfues (caused by catarrh) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catanh cure.
