At last night's meeting of the city
council Aid. Corken, from the fire and
light comiaittee, reported favorably on a
petition of A. B. Johnson, proprietor of
tbe Crown restaurant, asking permission
to erect a frame kitchen in the rear of
his place of business, the same being
within the fire 1 mils. As Mr. Johnson
had agreed to cever the building entirely
with comgated iron, making it fire
proof, the recommendation was adopted.
An ordinance was reported by Aid.
Bladel, anc passed, granting the county
of Rock Island permission to build a
private sea er on Fourteenth street, from
Second to Fifth avenues.
The ma.ter of straightening Seven
teenth street was then brought up, and
was discussed at some length, it seeming
to be the general opinion of the alder
men that there would be no objec
tion to having the street
straighten 1 provided that the city
would retain its full width of street, which
is 80 feet a; to Eighth avenue and from
that point south 60 feet wide. It was
finally deciiled to refer the matter to the
mayor and street and alley committee to
consult wit l the property owners in re
gard to the matter.
A proposition from Fairbanks, Mors
St Ce. to eiect a reservoir in the vicinity
of South pirk was read. It provides for
a tank held ng 100,000 gallons to be sub
stantially built, and which wonld give
that part of the city an abundant water
supply. It was referred to the msyor,
superintendent of waterworks and the
waterworks committee to report.
Attorney S. W. Searle came before the
council to explain a petition from the
Chicago, Peoria & St. Louis railway
company, n hich is desirous of securing
a right of war into the city along First
avenue from tbe western part of tbe city
to Twentieth atreeet. As first explained.
the aldermon were not very favorably
impressed, but after City Attorney Haas
and severs, aldermen had spoken, ex
plaining jut t what was wanted it being
only a petition that the city sign for the
f rontaee o waed by it as in f svor of an
ordinance bring granted the new road

explained that Mr. Schreiner, William

applied for incorporation papers for a
company, the stock for which had already
been taken, whose purpose it was to
bnild a facte ry at the place above men
tioned for tte purpose of manufacturing
wood house ornament and doing similar
work, and tliey of course wanted water
there the flnt thing. There was talk of
laying the natter over when Aid. Evans,
who always has a good eye on the pro
eressive side of things, made a refreshing
little burst of oratory, and tbe petition of
the gentlemen was granted unanimously.

The real estate record in tbe circuit

Lumber company has sold its saw mill
property and real estate on tbe river

ing the portion of block D which is shown
in the city map as a portion of old town.
This means that the Keator Lumber
company is out of business, Sam J. Kea
tor, of Davenport, having bought the
stock of lumber remaininc on band.
B. C. Keator explains that it has been
fond onprofitable to conduct the saw
mill business except by parties owning
the necessary pine lands. The Knator
Lumber company , had been obliged to
boy logs, and the profit of converting
them into lumber was - net aufflcleat to
carry on the mill.
What Mr. Deera will d with the
property remains to be seen. It does
not seem likely that be will embark in
the lumber manufacturing business.
