Matter. That Were Olven
At lata night'B meeting of the council
'he committee to whom was referred the
oi iiier of running electric cirs across the
R k tivir bridges reported In favor of
gi--n;uia thrf right, provided the bridges
be found sirong enough upon examina
'i"Q by to t xpert engineer. From all
Hppfcaroucts Milan will soon have electric

The Fire Department.
TLe fire and light comm ttee reported
in favor of selling the Fran Win and Gil
pin hrsi houses, and recon mended that
tbe Cable hose house property be re
taited. The committee favcr the location
of he new east end company on
Molioe avenue about the 0., R. L 4 P.
dep. This would no doubt be the most
convenient location, as a direct run in
either direction can be made from that
point on cood pavement. As before
tated.it is to be hoped the council will
make .eveiy effort to establish the east
end company as soon as possible, an-1 in
all probability one for the west end can
be arranged for at the same time. Too
much cannot be said in commendation of
a good fire department, as it is by far the
most important branch of our city's ser
vice. To Sweep the Fare sent.
Light hits begun to break on the mat
ter of sweeping the pavement, a proposi
tion having been received from C. Rem
ley & Son. The matter wai properly re
ferred.and in all probability it will result
in some arrangement being made whereby
refuse will not be allowed to accumulate
on tbe streets as heretofore. The con
tract for the improvement of Twentieth
street was let to Kiwards & Walsh.while
the Fourth avenue paving contract was
laid over, heicg referred te the street and
alley and finance committes to report at
tbe next meeting. The contract for the

prologue and three acts of "Spider acd

a ho.-t of talented perfo-mers, which
were mr-stly recruited abroad, and its
wealth of beautiful costumes, gorgeous
scenery, armor, mechanical effects, trans
formations, tparkting musiij, novel spec
ialties, clever pautomine, brilliant ballets
and evolutions. It presentu an entertain
ment in which tbe brightest features of
comedy, pantomime, opera aod specialty
are artistically blended. There are 60
people in this season's production, and
they are said to embrace thia very choicest
of European celebrities and America's
best pantomimists, comedians, vocalists,
specialtv and burlesque art sis. It is very
similar to tbe Chicago Opera house '-Ala
Babi," which proved such a success the
pist season, and is free from any objec
tionable feature, an entirely erroneous
inpreesioa having been gained from
some bill stands.

A Plan for Better Service Betweea

The Central Union Telephone com
pany, t' ough having expended tlS 000
in various attempts to remfdy the induc
tion that creates such annoyance to these
who attempt to converse a-rosa the
river, does not tlespuir. atd now has a
number of experts at work putting in a
new metallic service over the Rockltlsnd
bridge, with a complete circuit for each
communicating wire. The wires com
pleted have shown a suri rising Improve
ment and waen tbey are all in it is ex
pected that telephoning to Davenport
will not be attended with suth discourag
ing results as at present At each end of
the bridge a 100-wire cable will be con
nected with the Rock Island and Daven
port central stations and another 100
wire cable constructed to Moline, each
communicating wire having a return cir
cuit. Tbe company claims that the iron In
the bridge aids in the electric disturb

locate and overcome the trouble. It is to
be hoped that tois last attempt to im

successful than those made before, as in
deed it prom' see to do
;, The Bridges Are Closed.
The, last cut pissed over Rock Island
bridge at 1 o'clock today, tbe gates be
ing closed promptly at that hour. The J.
W. 8nencer practically gave up the ghost
last night and stopped runnisg.the ice get
ting so thick that it took several hours for
her to finally get landed at Davenport.
This leaves the two cities with no trans
portation facilities except the Rock Isl
and road, but bridge trains were started
at 1:10 o'clock this afternoon and will be
continued until the bridges are again
open for travel. The traius begin run
ning at 30 a. m. and will make hourly
trips, leaving here on the half hours and
Davenport on the even hours. The last
train for Davenport leaves at 8:30 p. m.
and the last one for Rock Island at 8:30
This morcing it took the ferry five
hours to cro.s through the rapidly ac
cumulating floating ice from Rock Island
to Davenport, and in the middle of the
sti earn the boat became fat in the ice,
but finally pulled out and reached the
Iowa side. This afternoon the Spencer
is attempting to break her way through
the Ice back to Rock Island, but the
prosnects are that tonight will send her
to winter quarters.
The Last Sleep,

the oldest settlers in this vicinity, having
resided in the county over 40 years. Be
was a native of England and leaves besides
a widow, 10 children, five sons and five
daughters. Mr. Milton was a staunch and
life long democrat and bad the highest
respect of all who knew fcim. The fun

On a previous occasion of a similar char

Father Flannigan to this city means his

Mackin to bishop. Whether or not there
is any foundation for the rumor is not
