OlUfc TALK. A NEW PROCEDLKE.
Wr. Gest's Position as to His Suit
Against the City.
HeMimply Wanted to Tt ach the Peo
ple a LeMNn The Mtreet Kail
B3' Ordinance Again and
At last night's council meeting Aid.
Evaas read a communication from ex
Congressman W. H. Gest with reference
to hh suit against the city . The letter is
addressed to A'd. Evans, and in it he says
he is not seeking a money compensation
for himself for the loss and damage to
which he claims he was subjected by the
raising of the Second avenue grade in
front of his dwelling. Mr. Gest says
in so many words that he begins the suit,
not to win any money from the city, but
merely to teach the council and the pub
lic through the process of law that he has
a right to claim damage if he wants it,
and that if the courts decide in his favor
he will dismiss his suit, whereas if the
case is dicided in the city's favor the
c -urt will dismiss it, but he gois farther
and says t i her side dissatisfied with the
judee niny appeal it
Aid. Evans tn.ived that the communi
cation, which appears in full in the
official record of the council appearing
elsewhere, be received and adopted, but
no second to such motion being forth
coming, a motion by Aid. Knox that the
matter be referred to the city attorney
The altitude of the council in refus
ing to pass nn the communication was
perfe -tly proper. Mr. Gest has demanded
(8,000 of the city for the mere purpose,
he now avers, of teaching the council
its business in the establishment of
grades for permanent improvements
such as have proven so popular and so
advantageous to Rock Island. He does
not want any money at all, although he
demands $3 000. but for his own satis
faction he would like the courts to give
him the privilege of claiming that amount
if he pleasid. The city council was
perfectly justified in not approving of the
proposition. The city's position
should be to fight for its rights. If Mr.
Gest wins give him what the law says is
his right a' d be under no obligations to
him. If he loses, so much more the
glory to the city, whose only aim in
e-tallihme new grades, is to build up
the city, and it has worked very success
fully in attaining that end
Tue resolutions from the Citizens' Im
provement association in relation to high
water grades and the Railway Terminal
Company received the attention due such
important projects. Fred Hass and Sec
retary Searle, of the Improvement asso
ciation, spi ke in behaif of them and re
marks were made by Aid. Schroeder,
Corken, Knox and Guyer in favor of
ttu-m and the proper action, was taken as
the i fHcial minutes show.
Aid. Guyer brought up the ordinance
for ihe Fourteenth avenue street railway
extension, and asked unanimous consent
to introduce a new ordinance. There
was no objection and he read a letter from
President Louderback of the street rail
way syndicate. in which Ik-explained com
prehunsively the position of the company
in wishing to use T rail, as it had plenty
on hand and could not afford to pureaase
tram rail, and furthermore on a street
l.ke Fourteenth ayenue, it would be im
possible to operate cars in winter time
with a tram rail, on which snow and mud
would accumulate. Mr. Louderback
stated his willingness to submit to a
clause, that alter 1(1 years the company
would substitute tram rail should the
council elect or would pave, and that all
street crossings would be planked mean
while. After bearing Mr. Louderback's
letter, and seeing that they were not going
to carry their point. Aids. Bladel and
Huesing objected to action on the ordi
nance, and it went over to the next regu
lar meeting. The matter may be summed
up to mean T rail or nothing, and as the
company has this on hand, and the pur
chase of tram rail would involve a differ
ence of 3.500. The claim of Aid. Hues
ing and Bladel is not consistent, and
while from apparently spiteful motives
they are fighting the company, they are
doing our business men who
want the road no good, or rather damag
The council also instructed the clerk to
advertise for bids for the paving of Four
teenth, Fifteenth. Sixteenth, East and
West Seventeenth streets, took the initi
ative, looking to the paving of Seventh
avenue and adjourned.
A horse attached to one of Wecket's
delivery wagons took fright about 11
o'clock this morning and made a lively
run up Seventeenth street, landing up
among the drain tiles laying along the
west side of the street at Seventh avenue.
The wagon was badiy demoralized, but
fortunately the horse was not injured.
Treman & Sons' spirited delivery horse
made things rattle through Market square
just before noon today. The animal took
fright at something in front of their place
of business and ran down to the alley
back of the Rock Island house, where it
was caught. The horse was uninjured,
though the wagon was badly damaged.

The Board or Muprrvisor Appoint
Ovrrsensorthc 1'oov Ouiutowili or
ihe eilman ae.
At the meeting of the board of super
visors yesterday afternoon, the commit
tee on equalization submitted its report
which was adopted, after which it was
decided that the board would visit the
poor farm tomorrow. The suhj;ct of re
ceiving or rejecting the bond of E. L.
Eastman who was appointed as poor
master by the Moline city council and
which was laid over at the last meeting
was again taken up. There is a question
as to whether i council has a right to
appoint a poor master, or rather is the
board compelled to accept the bond as the
law a!si gives the board the power.
Superyisor Vinton moved that the bond
of Ezra L. Eastman heretofore fill d be ac
cepted and approved, but Chairman Smith
became very much Czr Red for the
time being and refused to entertain the
motion, claiming that it was out of order,
though unable to state his grounds for
such action clearly. The decision of the
chair in so ruling was then appealed
from and a vote taken, which resulted in
the chair being sustained by a vote of 13
to 10. Here the matter rested, and later
the board adjourned until 9 o'clock to
day. The meeting of the board this after
noon was an animated one. The board
decided to appoint a poormaster from
Moline. and names of E. L Eastman and
L. F Kerns were placed in nomination.
The first three ballots were a tie, the vote
standing 13 each, one member voting a
blank slip each time, but on the fourth
ballot Kerns' name appeared on the blank
slip making it 13 to 12, and he was ac
cordingly declared elected. On motion
Charles Engel was elected poormaster
for Rock Island by acclamation.
Mr. Eastman will probably enjoin Mr.
Kerns from acting until it can be decided
by the courts.

Under the new schedule arranged at
Chicago on Saturday, Rockford was
booked for two more games here the fiist
of which was won by the locals yester
day, and the other is being p'ayed today .
In the first inning the Twin-City player:,
like on the previous day, did some very
yellow playing, but after that they got
down to business and put up a pretty
good game, and everybody went home
well satisfied. Rartson pitched an excel
lent game and worked hard. Nicol, who
was in the box for the visitors, was wild
at times and the locals found him with
out much difficulty. Harry Sage, as usual,
did good work in the left field while the
infield kept up its spirited gait. It was
encouraging to see the boys play winning
ball and will no doubt result in increased
patronage. The following is the tabu
