DRURY'S ROAD. ;
The CompliGations Before
What the Petitioner Seek Tie Approxi
mated Coxt of the Improvement The
FranchUe Sought and the C onditlons
What the Committee la Inclined to IV
7 or A Project With Many Sides. . I !
The bord of suptrsiors' committee in
charge of the Drury tell road rate met at
tbe office of Searle & Searle yesterday af
ternoon and practically completea its re
port to the county board. TLe commit
tee found the question of granting tbe
franchise solicited a complicated one, of
many sides. ,
What the Company Wants.
The company seeking tbe franchise to
construct ibe new toll road ssk for it for
a period of 50 years, and the propo-
s tion is to extend it iron tbe Illi
nois end of the Mucatiae bridge
back to the bluff, a distance of two
mile'. Tbe company d; sires to include
a portion of the old road by straightening
it out and thereby reducing the distance
to 8,200 feet. Ttie plan is to construct
the road of dirt 40 feet at Vie base, 10
feet high and 20 feet in width at the top.
Ii will require a big fl'.l reqiiring, the
petitioners claim $30,000, .anl the
erection of two bridges.
The Other Side.
But the committee finds tht.t while tbe
improvement would be a savins; to the
county and the township, it seriously in
volves the matter of rirainagt, the south
shore of the slough to be crossed being
tbe north shore of the draiohtre district,
arid the road might prove a serious re
tardment in this respect. Th-j committee
feels that 15 years will be lon enough to
extend tbe franchise, and that the compa
ny receiving it must put in two bridges
and the rest a solid road. Tn; committee
also figures that the improvement can be
made for S13.C00 and tint to tie the
township up f, r 50 years would not be
the proper treatment of the generation to
One hundred teauii a day are said to
cross the Muscatine bridge, ibeseare
charged 40 cents while the projectors of
the toll bridge propose to add 10 cents
The time seems to be ripe for Rock
Island to take steps in the matter of a
permanent road to the lower end of tbe
county as a means of diverting this trat
that now goes to Muscatine and turning
it toward Rock Island

As to Gibiion'a Offer.
"Billy" Gibson's standing offer to back
Cm Dovle acainst any man of his
weight in America for $1,000 a side is
bringing forth more or less comment
from the metropolitan press. The Chi
cago Globe has the following in resa'd
Doyle is undoubtedly a goou man in
his class, but he has never sh"wn s;eed
enough to go sgainet the tip toppers and
carry oft the long end of the money.
Still be has never met such men as Aus
tin Gibbons, Andy Bowen or other top
notchers in the lightweight division, and
it is difficult to say how he would fare
Gibson, howevpr, believes that he,
Doylo, can more thai hold his own with
any of tliem, at least he is willing to bet
his money that way, and that is all any
man can do. Should none of the first
class men accept Gibson's proposition to
fight for $1,000 a side, he may get on a
match by dropoing a few lines to Wood
Carnpbrll. of Detroit, who s'ated a short
time Rgo that be had k light-weigrit
named Waldron, that he would like to
match for at )eat $500 a side. A little
corresponding interspersed with some
good bantering, miubt have a tendency to
make Campbell raise the ante to $1,000,

would "look like ready money for Con.
Senator VV. F. Crawford called at the
Altars offl 'e last evening on bis way back
to ttpringfield, after spending Sunday
with his ftmily at E.igington, to explain
more explicitly his actual position with
reference to Dreaking away from the re
publican caucus last week. Said Sena
tor Crawford: "The spirit of the caucus
was to break up tbe democratic organiza
tion. This I opposed, "because I thought
the democra'ic organization hid been
well made. When I said I did not pro
pose to be a party to any such action, I
was told to leave the caucus and I started
to go. Ttien they tried to hold me back;
but I lnsistel on g'Vng, and went. For
this I was urcu-fd of bolting the caucus.:
All I want lo Bay to you is that I will bo(
be in everything the republicans want to
do lust because tbe other side is demo
cratic." ' 1

Fireman Jerry Mansfield, of tbe west
end of the Rock Island, while coming
east on his enzine last night met with a
painful accident that will lay him up for;
some time. A connection on the engine!
became loosened, and thinking from tbe,
noise it made that the engine had left the
track, Mansfield jumped to save himself. I
Engineer MirtiolJ remained with his
engine, and after backing up found his
fireman lying beside the1 track. The ac
cident occurred just west, of Davenpoit,
and tbe injured man was brought to this
city where he was attended by Dr. Plu ta

Mansfield will feel its effects for some

" Last Evening Coming Attractions.; -
Mark Murphy, the original comedian,
made his first appearance before, a Rock
Island audience as a Star, single-handed
last night in tbe merry musical comedy,
"O'Dowd's Neighbors." under the direci
tion of Eugene Wellington. The pro
duction is admirably adapted to Mr
Murphy's peculiar talents, while the gen
eral ran of the play admits of an oppor
tunity of surrounding the star with a
high standard . of comedians, vocalists
and specialty peaple, and this
Mr. Wellington . has succeeded in
doing to perfection. The production
is bright and clean all the way through
with situations catchey andclimares well
rounded. Mr. Murphy as Dionicus Cae
sar O'Dowd, is a whole show in himself,
of coarse, while David Conroy's McNab,
the Artie McNab of Tony F.Riggs and the
Pedro Gomez of Herbert Holcombe were
strong and fall of merit. The quartette
and sextette numbers were exquisite,
while tbe vocal gems of Miss Mamie Tay
lor and Miss Jennie Murpby were marvel-
ously beautiful. Miss Marie Cahill

of buts were 27, 15, 5 and 2 minutes
At the close f tbe contest Acton publicly
stated that Burns was the best man. The
athletic club ot Uicorah hangs up a purse
of $500, $400 to tbe winner and $100 to
the loser. to match Burns against any man

The Columbia cycling calendar for '93
is the most exquisite and trnly artistic of
practical calendars for the year. It be
gins with February, '93 and ends with
Feb. '94. It consists of a circular piece
of cardboard, 47 inches in circumference,
the calendar picture being framed with a
reproduction of the pneumatic rubber
tire. Tbe picture is in fifteen water col
ors, and represents a country scene with
a bicycling couple in the foreground, rest
ing in a cosey nook, after a delightful
ride Tbe original picture is by a cele
brated American artist, and the reproduc
tion is so close to the painting that one
hardly realizes that the delightful tones
and shades are not true brush marks.
This calendar, issued by the Pope Mfg.
Co. , of Boston, is adapted for the library,
dining room, parlor or business office.
