'"me times a store keeper will advertise,

Feeling Aboi.t tbe Work on Eigh
Another Ordinance Forthromlnc for
Important Work Replacing
There are so ne among the Eighteenth
street property holders who are disposed
to oppose the paving improvement pro
vided for by thi council on that thorough -
fare. Tbe opposition is not due to a
spirit ot antagonism to puving improve -
merits, but because Here is a feeling that
Eighteenth stn et is sot so n.uch in need
of pavement just at this time as Seven
teenth, tbe Art t named street having been
mhcadamiztd recent!? and is in passably
good condition, whereas Seventeenth
needs attention and tie trgument is pre
sentid that while tbe city is abeut it.it
might as well make a Erst class job of it,
the Eighteenth street project leing held
i ff meanwhile for another Tear.
The Akgcs does not seek to discnur
iige tbe Eighteenth street proposition.
It wants to se- every important street in
tbe city paved, but it would like to see
the most important and most needft.l
done first, such as has been the policy
here so far an i as appears to be the pol
icy in Davenr ;rt and Moline in the lat
ter city and ordinance for the paving of
Fifteenth street was adopted by the
council last night.
At a meet it)" of the Rock Island coun
cil in tbe near future an ordinance will De
presented for tbe paving of East and
West Seventeenth of Sixteenth, Fifteenth
and Fourteen .h, tbe first two named to
Secoi d avenue and the other to Third.
The work can be done without costing

At the meeting of the Davenport city
council Wednesday night the following
communication was submitted:

irm&n of the paying com
! city of Dven port: Dear
Sir: We, understanding that some par
ties make the btatement that some of the
top brick in the paving which we have
done for tbe city of Davenport are not
equal to the samples presented by Ufc
at the time of our contract with the city
of Davenport, now in order to show
our good faUh and tf our own election
we lake pleas ure in saving tbai when the
proper season comes, in wbicb such work
can be done, we will, with the paving
committee ard the citv engineer, carefui
ly go over all work done by us, and will
at our txpeafe, cheerfully replace with
brick t q'ial ti sample.any brick that may
be detmed inferior thereto. Ynurs very
truly. Atkinsox & Oloff
Tbe Democrat says: "The proposition
of Atkinson Si Oloff to remove tbe soft
brick and substitute good ones for tbem
is in a line with tbe instructions given
by'he Puricgton Brick company, of
G'ei-burg, o Edwards & Walsh, tbe
other contractors here, long a:o. Last
fall these Reatlemtn received orders from
the Purington company to give tbe
brick time tc display its true character,
a id then remove all that were bad or
likely to p-ove unsatisfactory. This
was entirely voluntary on the part of the
Thf IndnMnal Fair.
There was a large attendance at tbe
fair last evening than on the opening
night and m 58t of tbe displays have been
psrfected. Tbe hall now presents

ever before, plenty of chairs being pros

cert last evening that was highly apprc
ciated. The displays this year though
not as numerous as in years past, are if
anything n.uch finer. Every inch of
space that cauld be spared has been tafc
en, and if k'iven the support from the
public wh'uhth'B laudable project de
serves, there is no reason wty it st ould

The verdict of tbe jury in tbe suit of J.
