Animated Discussion's' Before
the City Council.
MUCH NOISE ABOUT NOTHING.
Aid. Kennedy (ieM on Ills II Ik" Homo and
IWaken an Kxhlbition of Hlmwlf Blat
ters lironght I'p Kefore the Aldermanlc
Assembly Lat Kveninff.
The semi-monthly meeting of the
city council last evening was charac
terised by a number of animated dis
cussions, in which Aid. Kennedy was
the most conspicuous participant.
It was apparently an off night for the
Sixth ward alderman, whether in
consequence of the heat or otherwise,
but at all events he had it in for
somebody, and he didn't care very
much who, so that he gave expression
to his fevered feelings.
lveiinely Ojm'iia l'lre.
Kennedy was first heard on the
matter of charging the Tri-City
Klectric Sprinkler company for wa
ter rental, when lie took occasion to
sneeringly allude to Aid. Evans, the
special committee to whom the mat
ter had been referred, and who had
asked further time to report, for rea
sons good and sufficient to the mind
of any fair-minded alderman. But
Mr. Kennedy assumed that Mr.
Evans was busy building a new busi
ness block now and therefore could
not give his aldermanic duties the
attention that might le exjiected of
him otherwise, Mr. Kennedy moved
therefor.that the matter betaken out
of Aid. Evans" hands and referred to
some one else. The latter explained
that lie had not neglected the work
assigned to him in the least, but he
talked with the superintendent of
water works in relation to it, and
that the question till being unset
tled as to how much was to le charged
for sprinkling about city property as
well as the actual consumption of
the sprinkler, the committee was not
yet rody to report.
The council took up Aid. Kennedy's
unreasonable motion and defeated it.
Aid. Kenned v again improved an
opportunity to lie heard, when Ned
Kane without permission from that
body to speak, took occasion to ad
dress the council with reference to
ex-Policeman George Lletter being
employed on the street forces, main
taining that the administration had
seen tit to employ young men
like Hetter, and hail tlis
regarded the older tax pavers whom
he held, were more entitled to con
sideration than the younger men.
The mayor called Mr. Kane to order,
whereupon Mr. Kennedy seized the
incident as one affording occasion for
further remarks on his part. He
held that Mr. Kane had a right to
speak on this subject, a ml he charged
the street superintendent with dis
criminating against deserving men in
the employment of the street forces
in order to favor political menus luiu
to the disregard of deserving tax
pavers. There had been a man up
town so treated, the alderman de
clared, and then addressing himself
to the mavor he accused him of being
directly responsible for such disposi
tion on the part or me superintend
ent of streets.
The mayor promptly accused
the alderman of speaking an
untruth and called him to or.
der. The question of adjourn
ment to an afternoon during the
week to inspect storm drains and
"rades in the Second and Third
wards being already before the coun
cil. Aid. Maueker held .that Aid.
Kennedy was clearly out of order
and insfsted that he be declared so.
Kennedy replied that it made no
difference'to him if he was out of
order. He was sent there by the
jeople and he proposed to be heard.
Aid. Kinner took the position that
Aid. Kennedy should be required to
take his seat as he was clearly out
of order, and that if he persisted in
making a disturbance a policeman
be sent for and be removed from the
Despite Aid. Kennedy's entire dis
regard for anything like decorum,
he insisted that he was determined
to be heard and suggested that if
the Dother aldermen did not like it
they could go out themselves.
The mayor was much more lenient
than he should have been and called
the obstreperous alderman to order,
whereas he should have had him re
moved for his disgraceful conduct.
The council cut the proceeding off
without further incident by adjourn
ing until Wednesday afternoon at 1

NERVE AND DEPRAVITY.
A Young: Man's Outrageous and Unseemly
One of Hie most extraordinary and
outrageously gaily tricks that comes
to the sight of the police was turned
up in the arrest last night of a young
man who gives his name, as Harry
King. For some time past the resi
dence of John A. Freyhan, at 1411
Fourth avenue, has been disturbed by
nocturnal visitors. Several times
during the last few weeks, members
of the family have been aroused at
unseasonable hours of the night by
noises outside .the house. Investi
gation at the time by the female oc
cupants of the house never threw
any light on who the visitor was, and
the ladies being alone, Mr. Freyhan
being on the road, they became
alarmed about the matter. Matters
ran along in this way until one day
last week when Miss Amelia Myer,
who is engaged as a domestic at the
Freyhan residence found a letter ad
dressed to her lying in a convenient
place where she would be most apt
to find it. The letter though writ
ten in a nice round hand, is one of
the nerviest pieces of letter writing
that could be imagined, and is as fol
lows: An Insulting Missive.
June 1893. Dear Miss: I am a
young man 22 years old, and am called
very good looking and came from a
good family. As I was passing your
place I happened to glance up at
your window and saw a light on
Wednesday evening June 14. I
crawled upon the porch and watched
you undress and go to bed. You
left your light burning so I stayed
and watched you. I
could hardly keep from coming in
the window but I knew that would
scare you and I did not wish to do
that. You put the light out about
midnight and I went awav but I want
to see you again. I know you have
a fellow for 1 have seen yon with
him but he does not need to know
If you wish to see me and know
what I - look like, meet me at the
north side of the Court House square
next Monday evening at S:30 clock
alone, and I will treat von nieelv. I
have seen you manv times and I
know I will like you. I assure you
there will be no trouble come of our
meeting. If you do not like me I
will leave you alone, but be sure to
meet ::( or I may possibly get into
your room some night. 1 don't see
what harm it would be for us to en
joy ouiM-h es a little and have a
pleasant time. We need not let any
one know it at all, not even vour
fellow, as we need not.be seentogeth
er unless you wish it. 1 am going
awav and 'will not be back until Mon
day nisht is the reason I named that
time, lie sure and come, I will meet
you on the north steps of the court
house. Yours with love,
Chief Sexton Fills the Date.
The young lady was of course con
siderably alarmed at this unusual oc-
curance and the letter was handed to
Chief Sexton. The latter concluded
the best way to do would be to wait
and trap Mr. King when he came to
iill his date. Accordingly Miss Myer
was told to go to the court house at
the hour named in the letter, which
she did. Chief Sexton and Night
Captain Kramer were also in the
vicinity so when the foxy Mr. King
made his. little plav of stepping up
to Miss Mver the officers also made
their play and the young man
was soon in durance vile. He was
brought before Magistrate Schroeder
this'morning, and on a plea of guilty
to disorderly conduct he was lined 75
and costs. The fine and costs were
paid and he was later released. The
letter is not published in full owing
to the fact that some portions are too
obscene to appear in print. The
name, Harry King, is no doubt a ficti
cious one, and it is hardly necessary
to state that the young" man seems
possessed of a depraved and coward
ly instinct which it is to oe hoped
has been checked by today's proeeed-
A New Company.
Mention was made in The Alters
Saturday to the effect that Kramer &
lileuer, the book binders, would re
move back to Rock Island from Mo
line. It is now learned that a new
company has been formed composed
of Henry Kramer, Charles lileuer,
Charles "Kramer and John De Vos,
the firm name being Kramer-Iileuer
Company. It is proposed to carry on
a general printing and binding bus
iness on a large scale, an institution
which Rock Island offers abundant
opportunity for. This company has
leased the building at 1508 Second
avenue, giving ample room for the
business. As soon as the new mate
rial arrives, which is expected in a
few weeks, the company will move
into its new quarters.

WATER CASE WON.
The Wagner Litigation Ended in
the City's Favor.
SO DECIDES THE SUPREME COURT.
The llullnc of the Highest Judicial Au
thority or the State Sustains the City of
Itock Island in the Proceedings Growing:
Out of the Meter System History of the
The supreme court of the state
yesterday affirmed the ruling of the
appellate court in the matter of the
Wagner water ease against the city
of Rock Island. The outcome is that
the city recovers some $5,000 in
water rent due from Mr. Wagner from
May il, 189, when George Wagner,
the proprietor of the Atlantic brew-
erv, in opposition to the city's meter
system enjoined the city from cut
ting off the water supply at his brew
ery. The point at issue was there
fore on the city's motion looking, to
the dissolution of the injunction,
which . is now decided in the city's
HlHtory of the Litigation.
Mr. Wagner objected to the meter
system adopted by the Rock Island
city council and appliable to the
consumption of water by the city's
water works system, and while in
May, 18'.). Mr. Wagner paid the first
quarter of his water rent as .indi
cated by the meter system then in
troduced, he protested against so
doing, and when the next quarter be
came due he refused to pay. The
city thereupon gave notice that un
less he complied with the ordinance,
his water supply would be cut off.
Mr. Wagner then obtained an
injunction restraining the city from
enforcing the ordinance and depriv
ing his industry of the water supply
on the ground that it was not based
on legal grounds. The matter drag
ged along in the circuit court
for two years, the city getting no
opportunity to move to dissolve, and
when in October 1891 the motion
came up before Judge Glenn, the in
junction was sustained. The demur-
rei of City Attorney liaas to me mil
being thus overruled, an appeal was
taken to the appellate court, from
which at Ottawa, December 13. last,
a decision was returned holding that
the bill of complaint presented no
sufficient grounds for equitable re
lief, and ruling that "the decree win
be reversed and the cause remanded
with directions to the circuit court
to sustain the demurrer, to dissolve
the injunction and dismiss the bill."
t'pheld by the Supreme Court.
Now the supreme court sustains
the appellate court, which means a
great victory for the city, which re
covers, as stated before, about $5,000
in back water rent. The city s posi
tion was sustained all the way
through by City Attorney Haas,
while Judsre Wilkinson and Adair
Fleasants were counsel for Mr. Wag

a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are, good. The objection to the first
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing but of the filtering discs.
Today in the so-called "Rapid"
