Nobody is particularly anxious to spend their
money; everybody has to. Your wants
must be satisfied, and it takes money to do
it. A person is not apt to look cheerful

iFOR FERRY franchise
Col. 8. Ti. Stewart Makes Application to
the Scott County Board of Supervisors.
Col. S. N. tile wart, who is making to
vigorous a flijut for a ierry franchise, ap
peartd before, the board of suptrvisora
of 8cott county at Davenport yesterday
morning and asked that such be isened
him. In his petition to the board, he
stated til it the fare would be three cents
for posieDKeis, with the charge for ve
hicles, etc., the same as that exacted by
the present ferry company. When first
presented to the board Chairman Sears
said that that body had no time to con
sider the matter, but the colonel per
sisted uutil given a hearing. It was
then cgreed that he should D3 heard in
Irs own behalf. Iu line with this the
colonel argued that as a responsible' party
it was the duty of the board to grant
him such franchise, as it would be a di
rect benefit to the people. That such
being the cae the supervisors shou'd
take that matter into consideration and
be guided in their action by the people's
interest and not that of the ferry com
pany. The discussion resolved itself into a
colioqiy between Chairman 8ears and
Col. Stewart, in which the former as
serted that the present ferry had giv. n
given good service and one was enough
anway. Tbe colonel stated that one
might be enough for a village, but cities
of mi:'ro;olitan pretensions should have
additional l.ioiliu. s
After a lengthy cuutinversy, it was
finally decided to lay the matter over for
consideration at the next meeting of the
