BOUND WITH BRICK.
The Twin-Cities Joined Solidly
Edward A Walsh Complete tin
llan A venae Job, and Appropriate
ly Commeuerate the Event.
Shortly after 5 o'clock last night the
last brick was laid in the pavement which
unites the twin-cities of Rock Island and
Moline, by Edwards & Walsh, the con
tractors ha7ing in charge the Moline ave
nue jb. The operation not only binds
the two cities by means of brick pave
ment, bat completes one of the largest
brick pavement contracts known, and
the longest stretch of brick pavement in
existence. The undertaking which
Edwards & Walsh have finished is
e'early three miles, or from
Twentieth street and Fourth avenue, east
Via Fourth avenue. Twenty-third street
Moline r.veuue ar-d Brooks' crossing to
Forty-sixth stnet. the division line.
This with the v. rk on Third avenue in
Moline, which it joins, and that along
Twentieth to S jond and west to Ninth in
Rjck Iaiiisd. makes an uninterrupted
stretch of brick pavement six miles in
Edwards & Wnlsh, whoBe important
and pleasant task it has been to supply
the misbing link in this great improve
ment, have shown their appreciation of the
usage that the good things of life come last,
by making the last mile of their contract a
model of thoroughness and excellency in
brick pavement. They have made the
best job of any ever put in by them, have
taken particular pains with it and have
succeeded in accomplishing what they
should be proud of, notwithstanding that
they have been obliged to overcome
many difficulties in the way of grading
and draining, and other hardships nat
urally to be encountered on so busy a
thoroughfare as Moline avenue with its
double street railway tracks and its great
volume of wagon traffic to and from Mo -line.
Through Brooks' crossing
the contractors were obliged
to construct considerable masonry in or
der to carry off the water,' to sj nothing
of the work required to construct a solid
bed on which the pavement could rest, as
the ground is fairly alive with bubbling
springs there, makingcedar underplanking
necessary to prevent the pavement being
washed out by keavy rains.
Thia morning Edwards & Walsh set
men at work going over the entire line
of the pavement and remedying all de
fects, whether due to the hurry in push
ing the work or to excavations made late
before the paving was done,
and where the ground could
not settle before the pavers were upon
it. The entire work will be subjected to
complete examination by the contractors
and every depression properly attended
to, so that the council will not be asked
to accept the pavement on the whole
until it is put in as nearly perfect condi
tion as it is possible to make it. The
contractors are determined, in a word, to
make the job a credit to themselves and
to the city.
This morning Mr. Edwards celebrated
the completion of the work by implant
ing in the pavement directly on the divi
sion line a small box containing a
copies of the Rock Island Argus and
Union, the contract of the firm with the
city and a silver brick, Charles A. Han
son haying ingeniously provided it by
the application of tin foil to an ordinary
brick. There were also in the box other
papers of interest.
Mr. Edwards takes part of his force to
Davenport next week, where he has an
important sewer contract involving $15,
000. while Mr. Walsh goes to Streator to
look after a new 6-block paving contract
just awarded the firm in that citv.

A portion of the stock of the Chicago

placed upon the market and is being
taken pretty fast. The line will be 33
miles shorter than the shortest steam
route and will carry mail, freight and
passengers. It is claimed that it can be
operated for almost half what steam lo
motion costs, and a car will make the
distance in three hours. The company
will also furnish light and power to cities
