It is doubtful if there was ever a bet
ter opportunity f ffered Itsck Island coun
cil men to record lbems'lvi8 on the side
of home industry that that presented
lust nifcht in the awarding of the Third
avenue paving contract. Major Mc
OiiDochieand Aldermen Biadel. Johnson,
Durmann, Fletttr, Cork en and Knox, who
so viewed the situation ard acted in ac
cordance with a desin, not only to aid
Rock Island industries, but to treat them
fairly where it is possible to do so, hare
been frequently comraendtd today, and
they are deserving of the approbation
thus expressed of their course.
The all-absorbing topic before the
council, as a matter o: course, was the
matter of the letting of the Thiid avenue
contract, refeind to the ttreet and alley
and finance committccj and mayor, and
tie discussion on the subject was brought
about by Aid. Kennedy, of the street and
a"ey committee, askitg further time to
report on recommends lions.
Aid. Knox, of the finance committee,
stated that he was rebdy to report, ard
Aid. BUdel voiced the sums sentiment.
Thereupon Aid. Coiken sjbmitted a res
olution ticced by part of the joint com
mittee and printed in the official recoul
and the purport of which was to award
the contract to the Rcckford Construc
Aid. Lluesirs ol j cud to the report
being acted uprn as h committee report
as he had not signed it, althoufih it had i
had been pr sented to him. ITe called
attention to the presence of the commit
tee of the Citizens' Improvement associa
t'cn with resolutions and moved that
the gentlemen be heard at once. The
motion prevailed unarimously, tnd short
atdresses were made by Messrs. II. D.
Folsom, C.J. W. Sch?iner. W. B. Fer
guson and President Jtckeon in support
of tLe Rcckford Comtruetion company
as a Rock Islatd enti rprise, and urg:n:
that the company be treated fairly.
Aid. Iluesing spoVe at length on the
subject of the specifications of the pav
ing ordinance, the tieeting of the Im
provement assiciatkn on the subject,
and took exception to some of the lan
j;uH";e reported by the Union to have
been expressed thi're. "Any man
wlio intimates that I lira not acting fairly
in ths matter because I might vote for
new specifications, ' .Id. Iluesing said,
' is a scoundrel and a coward!"
Aids. Knox and Oorkeu made short
speeches in defer.se o-' the position main
tained of openir g the bids.
Mr. Jackson explained for Mr. Ilues
ing'sbenifil that tb re had been no re
m&iks mace at the meeting of the asso
ciation tending to r fljet on any of the
aldermen. "My rtmarks at the Improve
ment association neeling," said Mr.
Jackson, "were devoted to public talk,
and opinions, and no: to what I believed
to be the position cf any one alderman
wiih reference to tje paving contract.
Neither have I an opportunity here to
combat any statement that may be made
on the fioor of this chambe r as one of
your aldermen may. You are here by
law; I am here by grace, hnd you can
shut my mouth at ary moment you may
see fit. But were I lere on equal footinc
with you all I might sav some things to
Mr. Huesing. I have never hid sny rea
son to question bislonor. I do not do
it now. I wi l say, though, that know
ing him as long as I have, I am disap
pointed in the course he has shown as an
alderman, and I'd say further, that no
one is n-sponsible 'or the voice or the
force of public opinion, an that
no matter what I miy personally
think, there have been assertions made
and I can take Mr. Huesing to people
who would not show him the same re
gard that I do, who know him better acd
have no leason or purpose to doubt the
honor of his motives in this matter "
Mr. Jackson thought though, that Mr
Huesinc bad misconUrued the meaning
of the Union's repo-t of the Imorove
mtmt association rieeting, and EJitor
Johnson explained where Mr. Iluesing
might have been m'n lead.
Aid. Kennedy mule a little speech in
which he was no, particular what he
said, but the drift of which was that
contractors, not bidders on this job, hud
informed him that $10,000 could be
saved the city by 8 lbmitling new speci
fications and seekini; new bids.
"I wou'.d not vote to charge them
now," said Aid. Corken, "no matter if
such was the case, because I don't be
lieve it would be an t onorable transaction,
one I would not be guilty of myself, and
I therefore would cot be guilty of voting
for the city to do."
' Very naturally the Purrington folks
could afford to make the city a present of
$10,000 on another bid now that they
have seen the bid of the Rack Inland
company," aptly p t in the mayor, "in
order to slaughter taat plant at Sears."
The question then came on the passage
of Aid. Corken's renolution awarding the
contract to the Kockiord company, and
the vote showed a tie, as follows:
Aye Bladel, Johnson, Durmann, Het
ter, Corfeen, Knox 6
Nay Hoesing, Tindall, Evans, Ken
nedy. Frohboes, Thiesen 6.
The mayor's deciding vote was prompt
ly cast on the aye side, followed by ap
plause in the audience outside the rail,
amid which the council adjourned, and
the aldermen went cut to take a breath of
of fresh air and to enjoy cigars present
ed with the compliments of Suot. Mead,
of the successful company.

The attention of Sapt. Sudlow, of the
Cobl V.tlley Mining csmpany.for the past
two days has been occupied with the at
tempted settlement of a coniruver. y with
the miters, some 200 ia number, growing
out of the discharge by Mr. Sudlow, on
the first of the year, of four men, whom
he had been led to believe had been at
tempting to arouse the other coliitrs to
mutiny and strike. While the s.tuation
presented so crave an aspect yesterday
that the company notified its ascents here
to make other arrangement for coal in
case of an emergency, and is already
bringing coul into the city from other
banks, and that only 15 of the regular
foice of miners went into the mines this
morning, Supt. f-udlow ppr bends no
serious trouble or interruption of opera
tions. The situation is explainfd by Mr Sud
low as being brought about partly by
certain outsiders, who by questionable
means have attempted to irj.jre the miner
while professing to be bis friend, but
mainly by a few Agitators who cime to
'be 8urface about tbe lime the new min
ing laws were being discussed in the fall
and being put into effect. Things did
not go to suit these men. and ever since
i that t'mc thtv have been trvirc to
breed trouble and sow the seeds of dis
content. "Patience ceased to be a vir
tue," said Mr. Sudlow, ' and we d's
chhraed four of them. Then, by persons
! al solicitation and misrepresentation they
maniged to get enough men together to
:e3o!ve that unless they were put back to
work there should be no more work, a
sentiment not shared by a large majority
of the men who were not present but were
Intimidated. Tnese discharged men will
never go back, and we will d jmonstra'e
who is to manage our properly whether
ourselves or our men, if it takes all sum
mer. "AVe regret the te mporary inconven
ience to the public, and will do all in our
power to relieve the situation. This mar
ket is open to all mines bnd coal will no
doubt be shipped in to supply all de
mands until reasoD returns to our men.
We challenge comparison with any mines
in the state for fair, square and liberal
treatment ef our men. They have had
better woik and their average earnin.t
per man is far above the average of any
mines with whom we come in competi
tion in the market."
Mr. Sudlow went out to Cable sgain
this morning in hopes of settling the
controversy. It is understood the mi
ners claim that the trouble dates back to
the appointment of a committee to con
sult the company on a restoration of a
former method of remuneration, and that
the members of this committee were the
men discharged. Mr. Sudlow and Mine
Operator Lee claim that w hile they knew
such a committee was appointed, they
never knew who e-omposed it, and it
never called on them, and :hat if it had,
the request woul lhuve teengranted.es
the return to the former system would
have heen just as satisfactory to the
company as the presont arrangement.
Jim Ball, the Australian, who poses as
an exponent of the manly art of self-defense,
demonstrated how far his concep
tion of manliness goes last night bj a
violent outbreak at the Rock Island houBe
where he and his wife were stopping.

session of an appetite similar to that pos
sessed by the great and only John L.,

evinced a disposition to make life terrible
to everybody with whom be came in con
tact. He began by attacking his wife,
then be threw a laundryman down the
stairs at the hotel, and ended up in the
evening by attempting to"break the face"
of Night Clerk Black, who fortunately
escaped with a slight choking, and the

plays, "Lend Me Your Wife." The Pio

"As pretty a hit cf legitimate farce
comedy as was ever seen upon a St. Paul
stage was produced last evening at the
Newmarket. It represented the essence
of artistic h 'j mor. Amusbg to a point
which seemed the climi x of fun, tre sue
ceecicg situation capped its predecessor
with S'imetl.ing even more minh-provok-ing,
and the spec'alor was obliged to give
up anticipation and abandon himself to
the comedy without reserve. The comedy
is the ideal of am'isemeot. pure and sim

humor that is irresistible. Roland
Reed is a conso'idated laugh in himself.'
