Discussions Before the City
. Council Last Night.
NOT IN THE OFFICIAL RECORD.
The Eighteenth Street 1'avement Ordered
to Seventh Avenue A to tin. Paving: of
Fourth Avenue A Sweeping Bxperl
ment The KnckTord Company's I'osU
Tbe city couccil at its ad jourt ed meeting
lust night gave all its f pre time to tbe
discussion of the Fourth avenue paying
contract and adjourned without render
ing any decision, although it received
light in tbe way oC a formal communi
cation from the National Clay company,
conducting the Rock Island t rick pav
ing plant at Sears. The communica
tion, which appears in full in the official
proceedings, mates Very explicitly the
reasons why the company has rejected
overtures from contractors not inters
esied in their enterprise for brick, and
sets forth quite conclusively the condi
tions under which the company will
quote prices to other contractors now in
the event of the Rock Idland council seeing
fit to protect home industry by specify
ing Rock lilmd brick in its paving ordinances.
The Fourth Avenue Ordinance.
This communiction was presented by
Aid Guytr, and tbe Fourth avenue mat
ter having been laid over under the rules
at the Ust session, it was impossible to
bring it up again as Aid. Hue sing, who
hid seconded the motion for si ch disposi
tion, refused to consent, though Aid.
K.-nnedy who made the motion and Aid.
Knox who referred it asireed to bring it
up agiin, hence a motion to refer tbs
Clay company's communicatioa was the
only way to bring it before tbe council
That motion was made to the effect that
i; be referred to the street acd alley and
finance committees in whose bauds the
bids for tbe Fourth avenue work are now
pi iced. The mayor stretched the rules
of parliamentary usage a point to permit
a discussion on th'j matttr, and Aids.
Guyer, Huesing, S-dirosder and Corken
AW. Guyer suggested that in view of
the dispute over thi kinds of brick to be
used, that contractors be invited hereaf
ter to make two bids, one on brick and
one on the remainder of :he work In
this way the council could vi ry readily
prouct home industries and at the same
time give ali contractors a fair show.
Aid. Kennedy desired a c mrse that
would look to tue interests of home in
nutnes at all events, and therefore fa
vored specifying Rock Inland brick in
Aid. Corken was in favor of looking
after home industry et all times. The
Rockford Construction company Lad
done good woik here, was a lome insti
tution and he was for giving it the pref
erence whenever the council cnuld do so
Other aldermen expressed bemselves
on tbe subject and the communication
was referred to tbe committee as moved
A Peculiar Situation.
The council finds itself in a peculiar
predicament with reference to Fourth
avenue. According to the bids the fig
ures of Edwards & Walsh are the lowest,
but confronting the council are two
obsticles to hurried action, one the fact
that the council in awarding tbs contract
would do so without authority conferred
by the customary ordinance aud the pas
sage of which wag over looked i t the time
and the fact of petitions of property
holders on Fourth avenue that Rock
Island brick be used. As regards the
latter objection. Aid. Huesing exbited
another petition last night which he said
was being signed by property
holders stating thst they had endorsed
other petitions under a mis ipprehea-
sion of the situation. So tte matter
stands at present, but with tus material
in their bands, it is believed the com
mittees to which the papers touching the
case have been referred will solve a wav
oat of the difficulty which will rove sat
isfactory to all concerned.
The couccil showed its public spirit in
pasing the ordinance for the paying of
Eighteenth street to Seventh avenue and in
the matter of keeping what pavement we
have clean, it was determined to divide
the paved portion of the city into dis
tricts and assign a man w ti a broom to
each. This will be merely as an experi
ment, in conformity with the usages of
larger cities, and it is believed tr be more
economical than the boise-power
Those who have interestel themselves
in the terminal proj ;ct and th i proper
occupancy of First avenue by railroads
desire that the invitation for tonight's
meeting at the city council chanber be
extended to all citizens intereste i in tbe
city's npbuilding. It is hoped t j have a
free and general discussion of tte matter
to the end that it may be fully under
stood in all its phases, and . -.hat the
council may have the benefit of the best
intelligence on the subject befora taking
action in a matter cf 10 much impor
SCRAPS OF SPORT.
The Opening; of the Manhattan Tomorrow
Night The Laflln Glflbrd Shoot Base
The formal opening of Gibson &
Burns' new place, the Manhattan, on
Fourth avenue and Seventeenth street,
tomorrow night, will be characterized
by a Gne exhibition of athletic skill.
Con Doylo, the well known boxer, has
arrived to train at their new gyjana
sium for his go with Harry BUCoy,
and wiil give an exhibition of bag
punching, at which he is taid to be an
alept, on the evening of the opening.
"Farmer Burns" will also agree to
throw four men in an hour or forfeit
$25. In addition to these there will be
other athletic features that promise to
be of much interest. Tbey have a fine
gymnasium and training quarters fitted
up and will make it a popular resort
for the sporting fraternity.
The I.allln-GllTerd Shoot.
The shooting mutch between Thomas ;
Lafiin and H. A. G'fford which was to
have occurred at the old fair grcuitds to
day was postponed on a.-count of illness
in Mr. Gifford's family, and will come
off next Tuesday instead. It is for $200
a side, John Gibsou being stakeholder,
and the number of birdi to be 100 each.
American association rules are to govern
the match, only one barrell to be used.
Will We Have B:iMe Hall?
President Hodsjes bas received a letter
from W. VV. Kent, president of the I-I
leaiiUP. in relation to the annua) meeting
which occurs at the Sherman boue in
Chicago on next Thursday. In all prob
ability the Twin Cities will have a repre
sentative at the m. etine, and s:eps will
probably be tiken toward arranging the
circuit for 1893 A number of new towns
it is understood are desirous of coming
into the leHgue and there seems to be
scarcely a doubt but what it will be or
organtzed. Rockford, however, will
probably not be in it, as the West End
Street Railway company has refused to
contribute and the park buildings are be
ing torn down. Hugh Nicol has gone to
St. Louis and it now looks a little blue
for base ball levers of Rockford.
An to the Two ICouiances Mentioned in

riage of Seth Morgan to 13 year old Bes
sie Montgomery at Denver is the deser
tioa by Mortran of his young bride, and
the filing by him of a petition to the

prosecution for criminal assault unless be

papers, has posed in various lights in
Denver, and has not established the best
kind of a reputation there.

No Trace of Kolxrt Oregg Vet A Boy I'n
From nil over the country durirg the
past few weeks have come reports of
mysterious disappearances, and indeed so
common has it become in somecities that
little attention is now paid to caes of the
kind. Rock Island, which is always
metropolitan in everything, is abreast of
tbe times in this respect and two cases
re now attracting attention. In addition
to the sudden disappearance of Robert
Gregg, another one is now reported.
I.ouls Gusenhayen MiaMn?.
Louis Gusenhayen, a lad 16 years
of age, res:ding with his parents
at 1407 Thirty-first street, left
home on Wednesday evening to go
to the plow works, where he was
supposed to have obtained work, but
nothing has since been heard from him.
Tbe young man was formerly employed
at Herbert's butcher shop on Moline av
enue but bad given up his position a few
days ago and had promise of work at the
plow works. Oa the evening stated he
left home with his dinner pail, intending.
as he said, to go to work.
A Search Proves Futile
Yesterday he did not return and last
night hi9 folks were considerably wroueht
up ever the affair. Nothing whatever
could be learned as to where he had gone
and a ddigent search failed io show any
thing that would throw anv lizht on hU
