Tbe Rock Island council held one of
its characteristic animated sessions last
At tbe opening of the session, which
was called to order by City Clerk Koeh
ler in the absence of Mayor McConochie,
Aid. Corken moved that Aid. B. F
Knox be major pro tem, a motion
which was passed unanimously, and a
fitting compliment thus paid a leading
republican alderman at the instance of
the suggestion of a leading democratic

was acted upon in accordance with the
After the usual monthly bills had been
allowed as recommended by the finance
committee it wan discovered that a bill of
$25 of the Argcs', the quarterly allow
ance for publica. ion of the official pro
ceedings, had been ignored at least the
finance committee bad made no reference
to it whatever.
Aid. Enoz, of thi finance committee.
explained that Aid. Huesinghad objected
to allowing tbe bill in the committee and
that he (Enox) tad been in favor of al
lowing it. "Mr. Huesiog pulled one
way," said Mr. Knox, "and I pulled the
other, and finally we simply let the thing
Thereupon A'd. HuesiLg created a lit
tle merriment by the unintentionally sar
castic inquiry, I'd like to know how
much it is customsry to allow the Rock
Islander for publication ?" Mr. Huesing
held that the coancil had no right to al
low these bills. Tbe papers ought to
publish the proceedings as a matter of
news, just as they did the proceedings of
tbe Improvemet t association. Rock Isl
and bad no need for official papers, but
if it was going to have them it ought to
Aid. Kennedy held that there were two
recognized party papers in Rock Island,
one morning and one evening. It bad
been customary to publish the proceed-
ings in these two papers and tbe arrange
ment had giv n good satisfaction. He
could see no reason why there should be
a change or why tbe city should fail to
meet its obligations for publication of tbe
Aid. Corken Hated that all people could
not attend the council meetings, and peo
ple like to know what the aldermen are
doing. What is more, they have a right
to know, and it was the duty of the coun
cil to make provision for tbe proper pub
lication of its acts.
Aid. Geiger txk the view that it was
known that the proceedings had been
published in The Abgcs and the bill was
due. He thought it was perfectly proper
that the official proceedings of tbe coun
cil be published in the daily paper of each
Aid. Corken pressed his motion, and
Aid Huesing offered an amendment that
TheJAbgds bill be allowed at $15. This
failing of a second. Aid. Coi ken's original
motion to allow Thb Argus bill at f 25
came up and passed by a vote of 10 to 2,
Aid. Frohboes alone keeping Aid. Hues
ing company in opposing it.
THE C FFICIAL PAPERS.
Aid. Corken then took the floor in a
short speech cfered the appended resolu
tion with a view to settling tbe question
of official printing:
Resolved. That the Rock Island Daily
Argus and the Rock Island Daily Union
be and are hereby declared tbe official pa
pers of the city, for publication of the
proceedings ol the city council, an ordi
nances and all other advertisements, at
the ss me rates now allowed saia papers
for such service.
Aid. Huesing offered as an amendment
that the Tri-w ekly VolksZeitung be included.
This motiot was defeated, whereupon
Mr. Huesing attempted to make another
amendment, btt the chair thought he had
made amendme nts enough, and Aid. Cor
ken's resolution fixing the official papers,
cera of the Brush Electric Light company
for maintaining a public nuisance in the
electric light tower at Twenty-sixth and
Aid Evans moved that the resolution
be laid on the table. This motion was
defeated and Aid. Kennedy's motion
While the intent of Mr. Kennedy's reso
lution is good, and the removal of the
towers seems to have become a desperate
case, it is hardly likely that any of the
officers of the company will find them
se'ves under arrest as the company's
affiirs are ia litigation in the United
Slates district court at Peoria, and the
court will protect the company's property
from tv,:n the company itself until some
disposition is made of the case.
Aid. K-nnidy, of tbe street and alley
committee, to whom was referred the
resolutions of the Improvement associa
tion relative to the Sunset pask project,
reported as follows:
To the Honorable Mayor and Members
of the City Council Geutlemen: We,

would beg leave to report that we have
ex imined the same and learned all the

purposes, your committee do not feel
competent to judge, r as to the merit or
demerits of the scheme we have nothing
to say. We believe it is well adapted for

W e. jour committee, are of the opinion
tnat tnis property along the river front,
not accessible for steamboats, should be
held by th city for the extension of our
railrotd system which sooner or later will
cross the river in this locality. We do
not favor the railroids comm? through
the Ci-nter of the city, creating dangerous
crossings on eyery street when we have
waste lands along the riyer front suitable
lor swiico purposes, wnicn are now up
to high water grade and serve as a dike
to prevent inundation. Therefore we are
opposed to the scheme of spending
thousands of dollars in bringing this
property to grade and be compelled to
tu n it over to some new railroad enter
prise which may wish to enter our city.
me petition or tne unpin nose com
pany relative to the purchase of a hose
wagon on the terms heretofore published
in The Argcs, was referred to the fire
ana tight committee, from which it is
hoped a favorable report will come.
Tbe council decided to meet Friday
afternoon to inspect the Moline avenne
and Market square pavement and ad'
journed to the time last mentioned.
Whm is Jtlr. etiet
For some years past W. A. Giles of
this city has followed the vocation of i
traveling salesman, having been con
nected at different times with some of the
largest wholesale houses of the three
cities. Sometime last February Giles
called on P. J. Wagner of this city with
whom he had transacted business for the
different mercantile homes and requested
a loan of some money. Mr. Wagner who
had the ntmcst confidence in the man,
agreed to let him have it and so the mat
ter was accordingly arranged, Giles giv
ing his note for $400 indorsed by his
father. Jacob Giles, and his brother
J. M. Giles. He afterward obtained
more money on another note in the same
manner which was also indorsed by his
father. Not long ago Mr. Giles called
upon Mr. Wagner to pay tbe note that he
had indorsed for his son and was Bur
prised to find that gentleman in poBseS'
sion of another note which his son had
given previously, apparently without his
father's knowledge. He immediately dis
appeared and it has since been reported
that he borrowed $400 of another down
town gentleman on a similar note and
left other smaller sums of borrowed
money unpaid. His disappearance from
tie city is what has made his dealings
look suspicious, though it is hoped by his
friends that he mav be able to account
for tbem satisfactorily.

The great emotional drama, "A Runa- 1
way Wife," will be presented at Harper's j
theatre tomorrow night.- The Cincinnati
Enquirer says of the play:
There was a Urge sizid audience at the
Grand last ntght to witness McKee Ran
kin and Fred Maeder's drama. "The Run
away Wife," and it was a most creditable
performance throughout. The company
is a well balanced one and there should
oe two targe sized audiences to witness
the remaining performances. There are
many interesting dramatic situations and
tbe principals, Mr. Andrew Robson and
Miss Blanche Mortimer, were in two in
stances recipients of curtain calls. Mr.
tiugn uioson deserves especial mention
for bis clever bit of comely work as Sir
L.uncelot Trayers. The frequent and
hearty applause evidenced the fact that
the drama was exceedingly Dleasini? to
