Tbe present Rorfc Island council, like
its predecetsors, for public Improve,
merits. Il believt s id tbe encourage
ment of all that looks to itt Interests and
ibeir advancement. Tbe aldermen were
put to tbe test ltst evening, and they
were found not wanting. Thirteen to
one they stood for progress. Thirteen
to one for tbe common and best interests
of the entire city, its businessmen and all
its interests as above local sentiment and
preference. Particularly proud of their
position should the two Fifth ward
aldermen, Messrs. Evans and Knox. feel.
Tbey were placed in a somewhat embar-
assing position thrcuch the inconsiderate
actions of ksome of their constituents
who sought by means of a petition to
induce them to act contrary to their bet
ter judgment, but all such efforts were of
no avail. Conviction conquered, and
tbe aldermen staid today in a better
ight before the cry, as they will in the
end before these Mme constituents, be
cause they were not swayed from tbe path
of duty by tbe appeals of an inconsider
All this was w.th reference to the
reasonable request of tbe Davenport &
Rock Island Railwiy company to change
its Elm street line in a manner to better
reach the people li7ing south of Sixth
avenue and between Nineteenth and
Twenty-first, to-w:t: bymoving its tracks
from Fifth avenue and Twenty-first to
Nineteenth and Siitb avenue, a privilege
which the council s.fter a lengthy discus
sion. granted by a vote of 13 to 1.
Aid. Bladel first presented the petiiion
of tbe property holders along the desired
route which was received and placed on
file, tnd before this was done Aid.
HuesiDg asked if the ordinance was corn-
in; up too. He received a reply in the
affirmative which was later verified by the
introduction of the ordinance, which the
citv clerk read. Aid. Corken moved the
adoption of the ordinance, and Aid. Bla
del moved an amer. dment which was ac
cepted by unanimous vole, that 3-inch
tram be used.
Aid. Huesing ca led up a remonstrance
from tbe property holders along Fifth
avenue from Nineteenth to Twenty-first,
acainst having tbe line changed. This
was read by tbe city clerk, after which
Mr. Huesing appetled to the council to
keep tbe track where it is, and closed by
moving that the ordinance be laid upon
the table. Tbe motion failed of a sec
William Jackson was given the pri
vilege of the floor ted made a strong and
convincing argument in favor of the
change sought for, enumerating the ad
vantages, geographically speaking, as
well as to the business and public in
Aid. Huesing talked further in eppos
ition to tbe ordinal ce.
The opinions of the Fifth ward alder
men were called for by Aid. Bladel.
Aid. Evans made the speech of his life
as a councilman. He spoke of bis re
gret at being placed in a position of
voting against an; of his constituents,
but be felt it a sent; of duty in this cafe
He spoke of what the syndicate bad
done for Rock Island in paving and oth
erwtse. and he thought their petition to
char.se their tracks now was reasonable
enough and should je granted. He conld
see no reason why tbe company should
Aid. Enox stated that be was in tbe
same position. He realized the nature of
the petition and realized, too, that an al
derm an should have convictions of his
own, and should vote acccrdingly, and aa
be thought best, as he was expected to do
wntn he was electe 1.
Aid. Huesing took exception to Aid
Evans' remarks with regard to "persecut
ing'' the syndicate. He did not think an
aide rman should talk that way until be
had something to support his position
Aid. Huesing then moved that the or
dinance be laid over under the rules, until
the next meeting. This motion how
ever, shared the fato of the previous one
and failed of a secoad.
Mr. Huesing then attempted to have
the offer previously made by the street
car company to pave Elm street hill in
cirporated in tbe ordinance as a stipula
tion. Tbe. council however, held this un
necessary as the con.pany had neverfailed
to carry out all Its promises in Rock
Supt. Schnitger stated the company
would agree to paving tbe hill, but he
would not like to accept an ordinance
with any paving clause.
Alderman AdamB offered an amend
ment t&at cars run form 6 to 7:30 a. m
on 80 minutes tim s, from 7:30 a. m. to
8:30 p, m. on 15 minute time, and from
then on half hour time. This was
adopted and the ordinance so amended
passed with the vote of every man in the
council except Mr. Euesing.
The council also took action with ref
erance to the paid department,disbanding
the Phoenix and Cable companies and
keeping tbe Franklins and GUpms at

The commission of army c fillers on

Hennepin canal inspected the north route

ay afternoon, and afterward met at
Engineer Wbeejer's office at Milan. This
morning another session was held at Maj.
Mackenzie's office and tbe Improvement
association committee was agaia beard.

the commission. He spoke of tbe lati

survey and will later hold a meeting at

In accordance with this President

Secretary Seatle to call a public meeting
at the rooms uf the association tomorrow

tent of this paragraph.
The canal commission is desirous of
getting all the light possi' l i on the sub

rived at it will admit of no further doubt
as to which is the most feasible route for
the canal Taebrtrdis doin its duty

government and the best route for this
great internal waterway, which is to go

LOCATING THE CAXAL

Greater Postal Facilities for the Rural
Washington, Sept. fc The postmaster
general is very much pleased with the re
sult of the free delivery experiments in
themral districts. He finds that the in
creased revenues of the offices where the
experiments have been tried nearly pay
for the increased expenses, and baa no
doubt that in a short time they would
entirely do o. Mr. Wanamaker has it
definitely in mind to present it to the
next congress a scheme by which, when a
given sum is asked for free delivery in a
given community, the sum being calcu
lated on the area to be served, the popu
lation and other such items, it is almost
a mathematical certainty that a sum
almost if not quite as large will be added
to the net earnings of the office in ques
tion. Even if the free delivery does not
quite pay for itself it is likely that the
postmaster general will ask congress to
consider the question whether the rural
districts of the country may not properly
expect this contribution to their postal

There is more catarrh ia this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until (he last few years was
supposed trt br incurable, (or a great
manv yeirs doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable
Science has proven catarrh to be a con'
stitutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Cuarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cneney &

tional cure on the market. It is taken
