Matters of Importance Discussed by
The Objr riloaable Ifnp Boat Ke
moved The Elm Mtreet Railway
Kxteasloa Adopted ty a HIk
Mrjorltjr The Vote. Ete.
As was anticipated the Rock Island
council held an unusually important ses
sion last evening.it being the regular
session of the municipal body.
The first matter of unusual importance
was the calling up of the much discussed
dump boat location by Aid. Evans, of
the committee on health, who asked for
a statement from Health Commissioner
Ejsier. The doctor stated that wherever
the boat was located, if anywhere along
the river front, it would be met with
strenuous objections on the part of
adjacent property holders. He thought,
too. that the unusual high water the past
season, which had brought the boat
nearer the buildings in the vicinity of
the foot of Seventeenth street, had caused
it to appear more objectionable. He
suggested as a remedy that the railroad
tracks at the foot of West Seventeenth
be planked and the boat be moved down
to that point.
AUi . Evans moved that the boat be
located near the foot of Fifth street. Aid.
Oorken stated that the same objections
would be found there as at other places,
and he thought it ought either to be left
where it is, or put outside the city limits.
Aid. Knox moved that it be established
near the abattoir. Health Commissioner
Eyster stated that his viaws coincided
with those of Aid. Corken exactly. Eiths
er the boat should remain about where
it is or moved it outsiie the
city limits The only question that
might arise as to the latter plan would be
the additional expense involved. Presi
dent Jackson of the Rock Island Im
provement association spoke on the ad-vis-ibility
of moving the boat from its
present location at all events, as at pres
ent it was placing the commerce of the
city in jeopardy. The matter was finally
referred to the health and police commit
tee w ith recommendations to remove the
bott to a location near the abattoir.
It is due to Health Commissioner Eys
ter to state that in sustaining the loca
tion of the boa, at the point where it has
caused so much objection, he has been
actuated solely by a desire to afford the
greatest good to the greatest number,
and to run the department in a manner
that would keep the expenses within the
limits of the appropriations placed in his
hands. He has in the interests of the
smitary welfare of the city, located the
boat w litre it would be most accessible to
the garbage wagons, acd in that way has
been able to keep the city remarkably
clean, which is very much to his credit,
and which is accountable in a large
measure no doubt, for our excellent sani
tary showing in the past three years. Of
course the city will , provide the health
department with funds sufficient to main
tain the garbage wagons now without
crippling their usefulness.
The cleik read a petition from prop
erty holders living on First avenue urging
municipal action with reference to the
occupancy of First avenue by the Rock
Island & Peoria road for storing cars,
which is exceedingly obectionab'.e to the
property holders. Capt. and Mrs. T. J
Buford were present, as was William
Jackson, who was invited to address the
council. Mr. Jackson, in responding,
stated that he was present professionally
in this case, and britfly outlined the
cause of complaint on the part of the
property holders. Ttoey had no objec
tion to tt e right of way of any road along
First avenue for the running of trains
They simply objected to the storage of
cars in front of their houses, as permitted
under an ordinance granted in 1S86,
which was '.known to be "illegal. Mr.
Jackson urged the council, therefore, to
take some action that would lead to a
speedy removal of the evil and avoid the
necessity of legal complications. Capt.
Buford was called upon and spoke briefly
sustaining what had been said bv Mr.
Jackson. Aids. Schroeder and Corken,
both of whom were in the council when the
ordinance of 18S6 was adopted, stated
they objected to its passage at the time
and still believed it ought not to have
passed. City Attorney J. L. Haas was
asked for his opinion of the ordinance un
der which the railroad is occupying First
avenue, and be stated his belief that it
was illegal, as it had not been passed by a
majority, of all the aldermen elected, as
the statutes require, but by a vote of 6 to
6, whereas the vote should have been 8
to 6 to make it binding. Further than
this there was no record of theconeentof
the majority of the property holders hav
ing been secured. The matter was there
upon referred to the city attorney to ad
Aid. Guyer called up the long-deferred
ordinance for the extension of tne Eim
street line along Fourteenth avenue, end
moved its adoption. Aid. Bladel was on
his feet in an instant and demanded that
the ordinance be re-read. He was ac
commodated ; the ordinance being practi
cally as stated before in The Akgus.
Aid. Bladel wanted the tracks planked, but
Ald.8chroeders amendment, that macadam
be used was accepted by Aid. Gujer,
and by vote of the council included. Aid.
Kennedy moved that the clause
for 80 minute cars be changed
to read 15 minutes. Aid. Huesing spoke
against the company. and Aids. Guyer and
Corken spoke in favor of the ordinance aa
read, and of what the syndicate bad done
for the city. The amendment offered by
Aid. Kennedy was voted upon, the re
sult being 7 to 7, the mayor voting no.
When the ordinance came up on its pas
sage Aid. Bladel uttered a kick against
the ordinance on general principles. He
wanted lo know how about the bridge
over which the road was to pass, and an
nounced that he was not in favor of
spending anything for the benefit of the
street railway company. Aid. Huesing
took the floor and related a con
versation he had had with President
Louderback in which be had put the lat
ter through a severe catechism, and the
substance of the result was that Mr.
Le-iderback had said the company would
not accept the ordinance unless it could
use T rail, and was not anxious to secure
the ordinance anyway. Aid. Johnson
spoke in favor of the ordinance. Aid.
Kennedy stated that he simply wanted to
get 15 minute cars, and that haying been
voted down, he would sustain the ordi
nance. The vote was then called for and
when Aid. Huesing's name was
called he made desperate lunge
and landed safely in the band wagon.
He was tired of the lonHy
attitude he had assumed for so long and
was anxious to be in good company and
he got there. The ordinance passed
with only two dissenting voices Aids.
Bladel and Fickenscher. '
The council has again shown its dis
position to encourage public enterprises,
not so much the street car company this
time as the business men of the city, who
had petitioned for the line, and which
will prove a great boon to the city, as it
taps a new territory and the city will retp
the benefit. So that the alderman who so
persistently opposed it under the imagi
nation that he wsa fighting the syn
dicate really stood in hs own light.

Rock Island, Julv 18. Although the
water in the slough has not been pumped
out. ; the out houses adjicent to the
slough have been inspected with a view
to making business for the city scaven
ger. The council has voted that rubbish
of all kinds may be thrown in, to fill up
the slough. It na been the custom to
distribute lime where the water has fal
len and left disease breeding mud. but
this year dead cats and dogs and offal of
every kind are considered in order.
What kind of an administration is this
any how? Since Mr Green has been
scavenger the police have been in with
the vault cleaning, as if they had a part
interest in the business. Andpoor peo
ple are required to haye their vaults
cleaned when there is no necessity for it.
Of course the vaults in the slough are
flooded by reason of the heavy rains this
spring. That is no reason why the scaven
ger should get in his work. Let him move
his dump boat away from our business
center. Let the city council have nothing
hurtful to health deposited in the slough!
Let the police force keep the health com
missioner informed as to violations of
sanitary laws and take less interest in the
receipts of the scavenger; and lastly, let
that disgrace to the city that scavengerboat
be removed to a spot where it will not
be a nuisance to anybody. I am informed
that the scavenger wagons from Moline
bring their refuse to this boat.

boat has been removed by order of the

The parrot then kept looking out of the

when under the shelter of the wiudow
