ONE COURSE ENOUGH.
The Municipal Paving Investigation
Roelt Island Aldermen More Than
"I'' With the Plan la Voxue
Titer, and Will Favor It Hereafer.
"We were more than pleased with the
single course system of brick pavement
in vogue in Clinton," said Alderman Dan
Corken last evening on his return from
that city, whither he went in company
with Mayor McConochie, Engineer Pad
dock and Aldermen Huesing. Dauber,
Nelson, Schroeder and Knox to investi
gate the one layer plan of brick pave
ment used there. "Clinton has 14 miles
of brick pavement," Mr. Corken
continued, "and every foot of it
is single course. And it is
in good condition. It has been down
now about three years, and is in splen
did condition. On the main business
street of the f tty. Rock Island brick is
used, and it is s'anding the test admir
ably, the singli- course hold in a; its own

double course iloes on Second avenue in
"What is the relative difference in the
cost of f-aving with single and double
course?'' The Argus reporter inquired.
"There is a saving of $1 per front foot
in favor of the single course." Aid.
"Are the aldermen of Rock Island all
pleased with the single course, and do
they regard it as practical?"
"They we favorably impressed with it,
and I don't think there is any doubt
about giving it a fair trial in Rock Isl
and in the next job that is done here.
Fourth avenue will be contracted for on
that basis, I think. Clinton's single
course demonstrates that we can
save property holders in the cost of
paving, and we propose to do it. But,
by the way, they are doing another
thing in Clinton . They are adopting T
rail on all the streets there where there
are car tracks. It is found to be quite
as good if not belter than tram rail
where there are paved streets, and in all
portions of the city where the street
railway lines extend T rail is the stand
ard adopted. And I can say one thing,
and tha. is that Clinton is spreading out
in all directions and pave streets are
going wherever the city is extending.

and councilmen know how to entertain.

Miss Kirby, the pretty leading soubrette
of the company, gives the celebrated ser
pentine dance about which such a com
motion was raised in the New York
courts by Louie Fuller. There are six
other pretty women who execute "The
Widow's Dance" one of the latest
crazes of the metropolitan centers. "The
Widow's Dance" is one of the most
clever humorous novelties introduced for
a long time. In addition to this "The
Hustlers" give an old-fashioned negro
song and dance a breakdown though
refined and polished up to fit this
stage of civilization. "The Hustler" is
in its third season, but it has been re
written and brought up to date in its
xpeciulities. With the exception of John
Kt rnell and Gus Mills the company is

the case in Spencer Square. The

east the drinking fountain, presented by
President D. H. Louderback of the street

There is a great deal of complaint on
lower Third avenue over the powder-like
dust which arises from the pavement
from Ninth street east. This is one of
the most traveled thoroughfares in town,
and the sand with which the Rockford
Construction Company covered the pave
ment as it progressed has been ground up
into fine dust which is very similar to
limestone, and the vc nicies which are
constantly traversing the avenue keep
the air filled with it. and it is not only
very disagreeable, but destructive to house
hold furniture, as it gets in at the win
dows. The pav m nt on Th'rd ave
nue should be ordered cleaned from
Ninth to Fifteenth streets, at least.
