Meetlutt Last KveuliiB.
The city council had a short but
important session last evening.
Aid. liladel presented ati ordinance
for the paving of Twenty-third street
from Third avenue to Ninth avenue,
with single course vitrified brick,
which upon motion was adopted by
the council. The estimated cost of
the improvement is $24,600.
Aid. Guyer started the sidewalk
improvement reformation by present
ing an ordinance for uniform paving
brick sidewalks by special taxation in
the Seventh ward, and enumerating
the frontage for each tract of land
with seven-feet walks on Fifth and
Seventh avenues, and live feet on
Thirt v-eijrhth, with varving widths
on the other thoroughfares. The or
dinance permits the substitution of
stone or tile for paving brick where
desired. The maximum width of
the walks was by amendment placed
at six feet and the ordinance was then
An ordinance came up looking to
the regulation of the dog nuisance,
and imposing penalties where dogs
are known to have caused destruction
and damage in the public parks. The
ordinance was upon motion referred
to the ordinance committee.
The Occupation of Flint Avenue
The matter of the occupation of
First avenue by the railroads then
came up. In anticipation of action
pertaining thereto there were not on
ly a number of interested property
holders, but representatives of the
roads in question present. City Clerk
Koehler read a joint memorial from
the C, B. & Q. and R. I. & P.. refer
ring to the disposition of the propo
sition before the council to call into
question the validity of the tracks of
these companies, and setting forth
that the prosecution of such proceed
ings would involve the city in pro
tracted litigation with such roads,
that the roads petitioning would re
sist the action proposed to the fullest
extent, and asking to be heard before
the council took decided steps. The
appeal also suggested that in view of
the possibility of another road enter
ing the city, the roads would, if un
titled, meet the council in an amica
ble arrangement on a reasonable bus
iness basis, w hereby such road might
enter the city over the tracks of the
companies now occupying the river
front. A petition was also presented
with the signatures of 92 citizens. 41
of which are business men. praving
the council not to act hastily in de
priving the roads mentioned of long
The entire matter was then upon
motion recommitted to the committee
by vote of the council.
Not Wise to Act Ilastlly
The council has shown the part of
wisdom in not acting too hastily in
the matter. The question is one
which involves so many interests, and
one in which so much is at stake, that
the council cannot do otherwise than
to heed the prayer of a petition so
voluminous and representative in
character as that presented last even
ing, and consider the question in all
its phases before taking steps that
may involve the city in etidk
JIUKt Srrllice One.
Col. I). J. Foster of thejlllinois mi
litia dropped a suggestion last night
which must furnish food for serious
reflect ion on the part of Capt. Hugh
A. McDonald of the Rodman Rifles,
and which would lead him, if he had
any idea of success in politics, to re
sign bis military command. Capt.
McDonald is known to be one of the
most active members of Co. A.
never failing to respond promptly
to duty's call under whatever
pretext the militia was called out, and
lie has well earned the shoulder
straps he bears through military ser
vice. Indeed he is one of the main
stays of Co. A., and has been for
years, and if, as Col. Foster said last
night, the Sixth regiment may be
called to Chicago to protect the jro
erty of the corporations against the
switchmen's strike now brewing.
Capt. McDonald would either be
obliged if by any possibility he
should be elected to neglect the du
ties of city clerk, duties that would
prove exceedingly complicated to a
new incumbent, or fail in his du
ties as a member of the militia. The
duties of one office or the other would
necessarily be sacrificed, and realiz
ing this, as he surely must, Capt.
McDonald cannot at heart have much
idea of being elected citv clerk.
Trl-Clty Lay Association.
The Tri-City Methodist Lav Asso
ciation met at the Frst M. E., church
at Moline, on Sunday afternoon and
discussed the question. Is the
Methodist Church utilizing Her
Standard Hymns as She Should?.
J be discussion was opened by Kev.
F. W. Merrell. of Rock Island, who
while upholding the grand old
hymns used in the hymnal, thought
that there should be a golden mean,
and that many of the modern hymns
in present use should be preserved.
Presiding Elder Head and Dr. Mc
Cord followed with views much the
same, as did also Wm. Jackson. L.
C. Dougherty, the secretary, defend
ed the hymnal and thought that
nothing except hymns authorized bv
the church should be permitted.
The resolutions advocating this idea
were by an amendment offered by
Mr. Jackson, modified so as to sim
ply give the preference to the author
ized collections, and in this form

The annual inspection of Co. A., I.
X. G. occurred at the Armory last
night, being conducted by Col. D. J.
Foster, of Chicago. Lieut. Col. Ed
ward Kittelsen, of Moline, and Maj.
V. T. Channon " were also present.
The company was highly complimen
ted by the colonel on its appearance,
and after the inspection had been
concluded a very pleasant surprise
was given Maj. V. T. Channon. who
has recently been promoted from the
captaincy of Co. A. Capt. II. A. Mc
Donald, "on behalf of the company,
presented him with a handsome gold
mounted sabre. It was received by
Maj. Channon with a warm response
and was the occasion of good feeling
among the officers and members of
the company. Later in the evening
Col. Foster, accompanied by some of
the local officers, went to Moline to
inspect Co. F. He expressed himself
as being in expectation of a call-out
of the state troops, saying that in his
opinion the Chicago switchmen
would strike within a month and that
from the temper displayed by the
men he thought the property of the
companies would be endangered,
which would necessitate the calling
out of the state militia, as the police
force would probably not be able to
handle the disturbance.

Charles Frank was run in by the
police yesterday afternoon on com
plaint of Peter liaise with whom he
boarded on Twenty-first street be
tween Second and Third avenues.
The complaint was made on account
of Frank getting a 3-year-old
son of the landlord in a state of in
toxication that it took several hours
to nurse him from. Frank had been
in the house drinking gin and smok
ing when the little boy came in and
asked to be allowed to smoke the
cigar that Frank had. The latter
promised to allow the little
fellow to smoke if be would
drink all the gin that was left in the
bottle, which he did, and then being
given the cigar he was thrown into a
stale of intoxication that Dr. Sala,
who attended him. found some diffi
culty in rousing him. The little fel
low was in a critical condition sever
al times, but finally came out of it all
right. The man Frank, who played
the dastardly trick, was lined $10 and
costs by Magistrate Wivill today. and
in default went to jail.
The burglars and sneak thieves
that are being allowed to congregate
in the city are still getting in their
