WHEELING ON THE WALKS.
Col. Bafflactoa Ntir ni
for Hla Otetmt Order as t Wherl'
men Cains the Bridges.
Col. A. R. Buffington has replied to
the petition of tri-city wheelmen relative
to hia recent order prohibiting blcjcle
riding on the sidewalks of the Rock Isl
and bridges and island. Tn h in lpttpr
upon the subject Col. Buffington says:
There is no disposition to curtail u
privilege heretofore enjoyed, on the con
trary the inclination exists, where cons
sisient with other interests, to extend
In the matter of bicvele ridinc. it is the
rule everywhere so far as my knowledge
extends, to confine it to streets and road
ways, for the obvious reason that the
safety of pedestrians demands it. The
rule therefore established here but con
forms to the common judgment.
Are Dicycie riders, of either sex per
mitted to ride on the sidewalks of Rock
Island or Davenport? If not, why should
any one expect to do so on the island
bridges and sidewalks on which citizens
of both places, including women and
children, are privileged to, and do walk
constantly, as well as the residents of the
The island roads and avenues, as well
as the sidewalks, are superior to those of
the cities and country in the vicinity and,
therefore, much better adapted in both
good and bad weather for bicycle riding.
This fact appears to be overlooked, and
makes the rule excluding riders from
sidewalks seem a hardship.
The bieycle is just as noiseless, its ap
proach either in front or rear of pedes
trians equally unheralded as to time, here
as elsewhere, and Its speed certainly is
not less; on the contrary the privilege of
riding on the island has been abused by
racing, but this has Dot been the cause of
the order, which as above indicated, is
based on the common practice and j udg
Boys Drowned at Mneeatlne.
Two boys. Albert Koepping, aged 12
ana jonn uremei, aged 15 years were
drowned at Muscatine at noon jester
day. They were both employed in the
mills there and during the noon hour
were playing out on the boom which
holds the logs near the Musser mill log
way, when young Koepping fell In
Dremel reached for him and lost his
balance, , tailing into the water with his
young friend. A number of men and
boys witnessed the accident and hast
ened to boats near by? but having no oars
at hand could make but little progress
toward the struggling boys, who after
keeping np and floating for a hundred
feet or more, went down for the last
time. Grappling hooks were at once se
cured and a large number of men worked
all the afternoon trying to locate and re
cover the bodies. Shortly after 4 o'clock
that of young Dremel was found, but the
other has not been recovered yet.
