WHAT WE NEED.
A Few Suggestions About Rock
WHAT: CONSTITUTES AZ CITY.
A Citizen's Observations as to Pavement
Sweeping:, the Market Square Eyesore
And the General Appearance of Things.
"It is a shame that a city with streets
as nicely payed as those of Rock Island
for the most part are, should have been
negligent so long in the matter of mak
ing some provision for keeping them
clean," was the remark addressed by one
citizen to another the other evening. "I
see," he continued, "the council has at
last taken the matter up. and that a
sweeper is to be ordered . This is right.
Our paved streets should be swept at
least twice a week, if not of tener. Tbe
time is not far away now when the busi
neos part of the city, and most of the
8 treets in the residence portion will be
paved, thus affording abundant work for
sweeping. systematically conducted."
"Then there are other matters that Rock
Island could make improvements in. One
is the abandonment of that horrid old scale
building in the middle of Market square.
While we are getting rid of eyesores, why
not banish that T I cannot see why the
mayor should possess such a fondness for
that disagreeable old shanty. We thought
it was to be replaced by a more ornamental
institution a year ago, but bis honor has
patched it up and hung on to it until now
at the very time when we need a combina
tion arrangement such as has been talked
of a weighmaster's office and band and
speakers' stand combined we find the
same old shan ty still there. Tbe council
should take the matter up and remove it.
Get rid of it, no matter what the cost.
"Still another thing that contributes to
metropolitan appearances is the delivery
wagon. The grocery, meat market.
ice firm, or merchant of any description
that puts a handsome wagon on the streets
does his town a good turn. Rock Island
already has a number of attractive wagons,
and for my part I would patronize the bus
iness house that evinces ( ride two to one to
one which would fail to. Uniformed men
constitute anotae factor of city develop
ment. The street railway company has
led the movement here. The police are
doing better than they did formerly, the
firemen and mail carriers do well, tbe tel
egraph companies could improve their
messenger service by insisting upon com
plete uniforms, and the livery stables
would be doing their share if they sent out
their coachmen properly dressed in liv
ery. These are small matters but they all
go to make up city life, and if Rock Isl
and is to continue to be in it with other
cities it must have them."
FOLLY AS TO FIFER.
Thi Union's Continued Efforts at Defense
of tbe Republican Management of Be'
In its issue of this morning the Union
devotes a column and a half to a further
effort at defense of Gov. Fifer and his
penitentiary clique, in view of the unan
swered or rather confessed charges-
made by Judge Altgeld as to the pecul
iar manner in which our state institutions
are conducted. The fact that the gov
ernor is to be in Rock Island next week
has aroused the morning organ to par
ticular vigilence in the matter of at
tempting at least, to make
a respectable defense of
the republican ring rule of our state in
BtitmionB owing to the light thrown upon
them by Judge Altgeld. But it will tuke
more than the explanations the governor
has made so far to satisfy the public
mind in Illinois that the state institutions
are being conducted as they should be.
The morning paper merely quotes line af
ter line from tbe governor's so-called de
fense, which, as Judge Altgeld so prop
erly stated in his speech in Rock Island,
is evasive of tbe point at issue, and
while it enters in some measure into a de
nial it does not present a fact of counteract
ing force in the face of one of Judge Alt
geld's grave charges. Instead it goes into
a tirade of personal abuse of Judge Alt
geld because be dared to make public ex
posures of the way institutions which are
supported by the people's money are con
ducted, and mbre than all that, to do it in
an irrefutable, undeniable straightout
manner that demands a straightout ex
planation, which Got. Fifer and his clan,
unfortunately.are not capable of making.
This is an aggressive campaign in Illi-
noise, fearless and pointed on the part of
the party headed by Judge Altgeld and
an anytbing-to-get-over - the- ground
policv on the part of Fifer and his re
maining followers. The latter will be
kept explaining until election day and
then will find that after all, their explana
tions didn t go.

The Stewart Launches.
A Clinton paper has tbe following con
cerning the present whereabouts of tbe
Stewart ferry launches, which tbe board
of supervisors drove away from
Rock Island, Capt. Stewart claiming
that be has moved them from here only
pending tbe finil disposition of his appli
cation before the council here:
It will be remembered that several
weeks afo a ferry line was started at
Davenport and that tbe authorities re
fused to issue a license to the boats on
the grounds that they were not regular
ferries, having no accommodations for
teams. Well, tbe boats, or one of them
at least, have been brought up to here,
and it is announced will open up for busi
ness very shortly, transfer passengers
across the river at so much per transfer,
the object of course being to make the
bridge cut its rate for foot passengers.
The boat now at tbe dock here is tbe
"Island Belle." a little launch some 20
feet in length and propelled by a gas en
gine. It will also run between Lyons and
Clinton, presumably to buck tbe street
