Tim Artot s has heretofore announc.d
the transfer of the Churchill-Sweeney
property on Seventeenth street and
Fourth avenue to William McEniry for
$4,250, and the fast that tbe purchase
was made tiy ft r- McEniry for other
parlies with tbe promise of a great im
provement in the premises as a result.
The actual purchaser cf the property, it
is now learned through tbe fi ing of the
deed, is John G pson, tbe industrious
and prosperous blfcksmith on the east
side of Seyenteeath street btlow Third
avenue, whose intention is, as early in tbe
spring as p issible, to tear down the pres
ent buildings on the property and to erect
larger and more modern ones in their
place, and in addition to carrjiug on a
general blacksmiihiug business, will
branch out somewhat into the wagon
repairirg line, anl who knows but that
he may start a little factory of his own
right there. Gi son is composed of the
proper snap to do just such a thing, and
it is not unlikely that he will do it, al
though bis plans are not yet fully ma
tured. Barn Wua Cats
are. without doubi, the most painful and
the worst looking cuts or bruises an ani
mal receives. A man is not wise or
thoughtful who does not have a bottle of
Kraute s German Chi. It is the great
German wonder for barb wire or any
other kind of cu.s and bruises. Only

There was trouble in the Russian Jew
ish synagogue no Third avenue this
morning, in which several parties sot
more or less tangled up, the result being
that J. J. Taxman swore out a warrant
before Magisirate Wivill charging Louis
Cohn with disorderly ctnduct, and 'be
magistrate fined Liui i'.i, and suspended
the fine during god behavior. D. Sil
berstein, of Davenport, then swore out
another warrant, charging Z. Dozman
with the same offense, and Magistrate
Wivi:i gave him tbe same prescription
both parties promising to pay the costs.
Pall chn night Lever.
Chief Miller desires it explained for
the bsLefit of the peotlj who call tie
patrol wagon, that in sending an alarm
from the box they should be careful to
pull the proper leyer. There has been a
tendency, be says, to pull the hook which
is to De used in supporting tbe telephone
trumpet yet to be put in, instead of us
ing tbe lever designed for tbe purpose.
A little care and not too much excitement
in sending in alarms and the new system
will work perfectly.

Jlollne Lrarln lo a Movement Which
Hhnnld Itereive the ll ar;y co
operation of H. ck lolaud.
"Molinehas inaugurated a movement,"
said A. C. Dart this morning, "which I
think Rock Island should imitate, for
once started there is no t'ouht that it
would enlist the support of all the people
f both cities. I saw yesterday a petition
which Judge J. M. Gould has put ia cir
culation in that city, pe-itioning the
council to submit to the vote of the peo
ple at the next municipal election, a
proposition to levy a 2 mill tax for the
support of a public hospital, tbe law
stipulating that upon the application of a
petition eteoed by 100 taxpayers, the
council shall submit propositions of thi.-
nature to the vote of the peeple. Now,
this is a very praiseworlhv set on tie
part of the people of Moline, aad it is
one in which I think Rock Island caa co
operate. My Miaues'.ioi would be that
in Rocli Island a petition similar to the
one circulated in Moiine be circulated,
and if sufll. ient ti'.'nutur.-s are; secure 1,
it be presented to our council and the
vote of the peop'e taken on tbe subject.
If it ernes iu both cities- ss 1 believe it
would a site niigbt be selected on tbe
line, and each bui-d its own hos
pital tbey could not very well
buiid them jointly but etch could build
its own and they cou'd be connected aud
run by one se t of physicians and curses.
' Aly plan would be to raise by popular
subscription an amount sufficient to erect
the hospital buildups and it is my opin
ion that our factories and rtilroids which
get bs much benefit from a hospital as
anyone else, ought to contiibu'e hand
somely to such a fund. The income
from special taxation, therefore, would
be applied only on the score of mainten
ance of the hospital.'-
