rijlitly used. The ninny, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's licst products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the

beneficial properties of a perfect lax

dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
ana permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid

every objectionable substance.

Matters Discussed by the City
THE ANNUAL APPEOPRIATIONS.
The Fire Department lines Not Rerelve the
Alii it Merits and a Chancre of Attitude
Toward It Id Confidently Hoped For
The raving Contract Other Matters
liro ight Up.
At the meeting of the city council
last evening, the time was mostly
taken up in looking after this year's
appropriations. The lirst matter
that was of special interest was the
receipt of a bid by the city clerk on
the Twenty-third street and Seven
teenth and Nineteenth street paving
work. A discussion arose as to
who her or not the hid should be
opetied, some of the aldermen being
of t le opinion that it should lie
opened and if the price was not ex
tortionate, to let the work at once.
Oth ts, however, contended that it
was not fair to do so, for the reason
thai the bid had not been received
during the specified time, which was
up "o July 8, and accordingly the
bid should not be considered at all.
The latter view was then taken of
the matter and the clerk instructed
to readvertise. The attention of the
council was then called by Aid.
Blndel to the transfer of some lots
from the city to the Rock Island
Pk w company, which had never
bet n properly complied with, and the
mayor volunteered to look after the
matter. There was action taken on
a t umber of minor matters, such as
catch basins, lights, tilling, etc., in
tin- different wards, after which the
mt.tter of appropriations came tip.
Appropriation for 1893.
Before making the appropriations
this year City Attorney Haas at the
instigation of Mayor Medill looked
up the matter of making appropria
tions and found that what had here
tofore been done in that line was en
tirely illegal in form, anil accordingly
the funds for use of the different
cc mmittees were set aside last night
strictly in compliance with the law.
T do this the ordinance for the set
ting aside of the tax levy was passed,
b it the apportionment of the esti
11 ated revenue was done by resolu
tion, as in this, way money can. if
found necessary later in the year, be
transferred from one fund to another
s mply by resolution, which formerly
v as required to tie done by ordi
nance. The total of the appropria
tions for the fiscal year 1893 niounts
to $123,343.1 apportioned to the dif
ferent funds as follows:

More Fire Protection Needed.
If there was any fund that needed
to be increased it was certainly that
of the lire department, but instead it
has been cut down $500 lower than
the appropriation of last year. To
say that this is poor encouragement
for manufacturers and others who
contemplate building to go on with
their work would be putting it mild
ly. The residents of the city are
now being heavily taxed to support
at paid lire department which is lirst
class as far as it goes, and has un
doubtedly saved the loss of thousands
of dollars to property holders, but
its efficiency is greatly hampered by
a "penny wise and pound foolish"
sense of economy. With the judi
cious investment'of $2,000 to $3,000
the efficiency of the present depart
ment could be more than doubled, and
it is indeed a pity that some arrange
ment could not be made whereby it
could be extended, especially when
other funds much less urgent have
been increased. There is nothing
more terrible than ti e, and there is
nothing that a community feels more
safety and confidence in than when
lying down at night to know that its
lives and property are guarded by a
competent corps of well drilled lire
men. In case any accident should
occur whereby the present company
would be hindered from reaching a
fire when it would be most needed
the failure of the council to provide
suitable protection would- then forci
bly be brought out, and such an acci
dent may occur at any time. Before
the additional companies could be
gotten in operation half of the year
would be gone and therefore half the
expense for maintenance would also
be cut off, so that there seems to be
no good "reason why it should not be
started at once, the fact being taken
into consideration also that the ap
paratus could also be gotten on time,
which would make the draft on the
city's funds this year hardly noticea
ble. Let's have the the extension by

THE HAND OF DEATH.
Mrs. Margaret lireehy FaHe Away Fu
neral of W. Newberry.
Mrs. Margaret Greehy, widow of
the late John Greehy, died at her
home, 2533 Vine street, at 4:20 this
morning, of an affection of the stom
ach, aged 64 years. She had not
been well for a year and a half past,
when she suffered an attack of the
grip. About a week ago she was
taken much worse and passed to her
reward this morning. Deceased was
born in Ireland, coming to this coun
try in 1846 and settling in Davenport,
where she resided until about 15
years ago, when she moved to this
city. She leaves two sons, Thomas
and John, both engineers on the Rock
Island road and who reside at home
and who were much devoted to her.
Mrs. Greehy during her residence
here, had, ly her kind disposition,
won many friends who will sincerely
mourn her demise. The funeral
will occur from St. Joseph's church
on Thursday morning with inter
ment at St. Marguerite's cemetery in
Mr. New berry's Funeral.
The funeral of the late Nathanial
W. Newberry, of Lincoln, Neb., was
held this morning, with services at
the First M. E. church, Rev. Dr.
C. E. Taylor officiating. There was
a large attendance of old-time friends
of the deceased.
Nathaniel Waldo Newberry was
one of Rock Island's pioneer settlers.
He was a native of New York state,
being born in Catarangus county
August 27, 1S25. He came to Illi
nois in 1845 and settled in Galena,
but in 1851 he removed to Rock Isl
and and made his home here and in
Davenport until about a year ago,
when with his wife he removed to
Lincoln to spend his declining years
with his son and daughter.
Death entered the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Bladel in South Rock Isl
and at 9 o'clock last evening and
claimed their infant son, James Fay,
aged 2 months. The funeral occurs
from the home of Mr. Bladel in South
Rock Island at 9 o'clock tomorrow
morning, in charge of Undertaker

ne.4fl. The board of supervisors visited
the lower end of the county in a body
last night, going down on the steam
er. Silver Crescent, to ajrain look
into the much mooted Drury road
case. The county legislators were
royally received and entertained by
the Business Men's association of
Muscatine, at whose rooms last even
ing they were feasted, and this
morning they were driven over to
Drury township in carriages where
the-iuspected the road in question.
and were then driven back to the en
terprising city where they took a
train on the Rock Island road for
home, reaching here about noon, de
lighted with their jaunt and all that
Tomorrow the supervisors will be
off on another little tour, the day
havinr been set for the annual visit
to the county farm.
At vesterdav afternoon's session
the bond of Charles R. Wheelan as
overseer of the poor for Rock Island
was presented, and as the board had
at its last session appointed Charles
Lngel as overseer, the bond of Mr.
Wheelan was tabled. This act
leaves the conflict of authority be
tween the city and county still un
settled, but there are members of the
board who propose to call the matter
up again and to see to it that the city
is not so unceremoniously snubbed
without at least an explanation, as
was the ease yesterday. The people
of Rock Island believe it should be
their privilege to select their own
overseer as they have been in the
habit of doing, and as was done this
spring when Mr. Wheelan was chosen
by the city"s representatives.
The Columbian lark Project.
The idea of the city retaining a
portion of the Columbian tract for
park purposes is meeting with many
expressions of approbation, especial
ly from the eastern portion of the
city where the people are famishing
for that sort of a breathing place.
That the city should have such an
opportunity to thus provide itself
with a park in keeping with those
located in other portions of the city,
is deemed exceedingly fortunate and
one that the city ot Rock Island can
not afford to overlook.
Let the Improvement association
take the matter in hand at its next
meeting and take such steps as may
bring it properly to the attention of
the city council.
