Matters Discussed at Last
Night's Council Meeting.
ACTION ON IMPORTANT MATTERS.
Recommendation for Krpsiira on Kock
Klver Itrltlges DiKCUHHion on the Kxten.
alon of the Fire Department A Move for
the He virion of City Ordinances A New
Mill Project In Sight.
A large amount of business was
transacted at the meeting of the city
council last evening and a great deal
more was left unfinished that will
be gone through with tomorrow
evening. 1 he bridge committee re.
ported the condition of the Kock
river bridges, recommending that
bridge No. 2 be replanked and the
cap adjusted. On bridge . -1 the
cap will have to be replaced and the
toll collector's booth needs repairs.
The committee made a thorough in
vestigation and found the bridges in
a good condition otherwise. A much
needed step was taken by the council
in pro tiling additional help fur the
city clerk in order to cuablo him to
open a new set. of books. Some of the
books now in use have been there
10 years and the assistance was
needed, as no one man could do the
additional work and look after the
duties of the office at the flirae time.
For More Fire Protect Ion.
A report from the fire committee
recommending the purchase of 10
rubber coats, two extension ladders
and some carpets brought up the
discussion of more lire protection
and Aid. Bladel moved that a new
company be established in the
Pho-nix hose house. Aid Nelson
immediately moved for the cstablish
of another one in the Cable hose
house. He also stated that the East
end had been paying for lire
protection several years, but had re
ceived a great deal. From Seven
teenth to Forty sixth street was too
long a run for a team and he thought
a new company should be established
at once in that end of -town. Then
came up the question of
the finances to establish the new
stations.vhich several aldermen ex
pressed their fears were in such a
condition as not to warrant the out
lay. Aid. Corken then suggested as
had been done in the establishment
of the present department that all
the outfit would not need to be paid
for at once but could be purchased in
6Uch a way that a portion of it eouli
be paid out of next years appropre.
ation. J he matter was relerrei
however, and it is to le hoped that
arrangements can be made whereby
both companies can be established a
there is urgent need of both as the
city can not always expect to be
lucky in the way of lires. Another
matter that needed attention wa
the sleeping quarters of the driver
of the iatrol wagon, and the police
committee are making preparation.
for changing the quarters winch l
indeed badly needed. The matter of
revising the citv ordinances was
again brought up and it was decided
to have them revised, the matter
being referred to the printing and
ordinance committees. The printing
committee recommended that th
official printing be givon to The Ak-
gus and the Union at 1UO eacn. ami
the recommendatiou was adopted
New- Flouring Mill Project.
H. C. Johnson appeared before the
council and spoke in the interests of
a communication from himself, J. K
Like and lavid Sears, asking for
permission to locate certain side
tracks on first avenue between
Tenth and Eleventh streets. The
gentlemen named propose the erec
tion of a flouring mill to cost ifzU.ouw,
they having secured the option on
ground at the place stated. Unless
the rights for tracks there can also
be secured, they would not erect the
building here at all. If they erect
the proposed mill, an additional
mill for oatmeal will undoubtedly be
built later, and the chances are also
good for the erection of a grain ele
vator in the same locality. The mat
ter was proerly referred with in
structions to report at tomorrow
night's meeting of the citj- council.

If the Davenport and Kock Island
Kailwav company had not been com
pelled to pay a very large sum of
money for street paving it would be
about even at present, allowing a
reasonable percentage of prolit. As
it is there are very strong" hints of
serious need for money. The decay
of the plant is a source of expense that
must soon be faced. Track and ma
chinery repairs have not been heavy
thus far, but they will soon begin to
appear in full force. It is held that
the replacement of the entire system
will be demanded before very long.
Nevertheless the company is undeni
ably giving a good service. Daven
Interesting Seuii fcnt ennlal Exercises To
day Mr. Jackson's Address.
Moline is in the midst of its semi
centennial celebration today. Early
this afternoon an imposing proces
sion occurred under the direction of
Col. William Clendenin, starting on
Market square and terminating at
the lawn in front of the Wheelock
residence, where the exercises were
held. Mayor Bennett presided.
Mr. Jackson's Address.
The speaker of the day was William
Jackson, who began by referring to
his entrance to the city of Moline in
1.S.52 to take a place asa workman in
the Deere shops. The early ' history
of the city he knew only from the
lips of those whoso faithfully labored
to lay a broad foundation for a great
citv. '..Men of sober and industrious
habits of fixed moral, religious and
political convictions, who believed
that the strength of a city lay not
only in its material wealth but in its
moral conditions. He referred to
the locality and surroundings as
naturally inviting the sentiments of
persons of good taste and energy.
The First water power was established
in the year IS-tl. under the act of leg
islature passed in IS:?'.), granting to
David B. Sears and John W. Spencer
authority to build a dam from the
south shore to the island. This dam
was built of brush and stone at about
the line of the Moline banks. The
lirst mill was a 2-story frame struc
ture built about the year 1S42. the
lower story being a saw mill and the
upper story a grist mill. This was
washed away by a tlood in the year
1S56. In is52 when the speaker
came to Moline there was the Norse
plaining mill, in the middle of the
dam a saw mill operated by Cham
berlain & Dean and a saw mill at the
north end of the dam owned by Spen
cer White, the plow shops of John
Deere, a large grist mill between the
dam and the plow shops., known in
after years as the Sicklys &, Boy n ton
mill: a brick school house where ; the
city building now stands, and the
store of William and. Alonzo Xaurse
on the corner ot,isixteentli street and
Second avenue were -prom rneiit -and
interesting points in 1852. The
Deere plow works were operated
from 1847 by Deere & Gould, but in
1852 passed into the exclusive pos
session of John Deeret I'These -w ere

stirring business character of the
prosperous obi plow works, and the
excellent character oi me goons man

Pitts came about 1S50. and soon af
ter came S. W. Wheelock, who. with
indomitable -will and energy turned
some buildings into a paper mill and
sent his wares all over the country
in wairons. He referred to the anx

they refused to sell. The'snit of this
continued until 1-85G, when it was
compromised. The speaker then
referred to the building of the
Dimock & Gould factory and many
other establishments. The religious.
temperance and political tone of
Moline; dwelt upon the granting of
the charter in lhoo, and the constant
struggle against the unlawful sale of
liquors. Many other matters of lo-
cal interest were referred to and
many persons introduced whose
names are household words in the
early history of Moline. In 18G3 the
speaker moved to Kock island, ana
this city nas since been his nome.
