DEMAND GOOD WALKS.
Other CHIps In the Same Predicament as
The q icstion of solid and passible
sidewalks is a mooted' question in
other cities besides Hock Island.
The subject is being seriously agi
tated in Davenport. Quincy and else
where. It is a matter in w hich all
citizens of a municipality are inter
ested. ecause the poor and rich
alike are affected. With smooth,
paved streets the demand for good
walks is accelerated. The eity coun
cil of Cuincv has massed a "mwrnl
sidewalk ordinance which look
k - -----
the improvement of all defective
walks. :.nd the Quincy Herald thus
treats of the matter:
Our frst parents walked about in
the mud; they were also barefooted. '
Hut tbft was a great many years'
ago. Since then civilized man has
developed an appetite for hard walks'
and shoes. Some of our supposedly!
civilized denizens of quincy, how-1
ever, seem to be under the impres-'
sion tht.t this is still the mud era.
They h: vo that idea so tirmly fixed'
that nothing short of a municipal
onaetni nt can educate them. They'
plod th-ough a sidewalkless mud and
dint in front of their dwellings, and
expect ithers to do the same, l'.ut
the wi-e board of aldermen have
come t( the decision that the people
must ho educated, and have started
a side valk school. It is bard to
bring the savage to a state of civili
zation, and there will be many a bit
ter objection before the anti-walk
habit, so tirmly implanted, can be
eliminated from their minds. But it
will come in time. Klsen here appears
the lesson jriven out bv the commit
tee las: night. It is entitled "First
Steps i i Sidewalks, or Kasy Pointers
for Beginners. " It will be studied
by t he pupils with considerable in
terest. Other lessons will rapidly
follow, until in time even the most
backwj. rd will know the value of
sidewa ks and learn to use them just
as tlneiitl.v as the mud.

But no one could tell it by looking at

she may want to get on. I'll stop
anyhow, for if I don't and she is a
woiiid-lie passenger she'll go to the
superintendent and complain that we
do not attend to our business." The
woman in question was standing on

THE LAST SUMMONS.
Mrs. Charles Buncher Dies After Many
Mrs. Charles Buncher died at her
home, 536 Twenty-third street, at 11
o'clock this morning, after 16
months' suffering from cancer of the
stomach. Her maiden name was
Mary Sass. She was born at New
Brandenburg in the Duchv of Meek
lenburg. May 1, 1847, and came to
America when only seven years of
age. In crossing the ocean her par
ents were attacked with that fatal
malady choleta. and died, as also did
her younger brother. She was then
adopteil hy a merchant tailor, (.'apt.
Tobin. In 1804 she was married to
Charles Buncher in Rock Island, and
from thence until 17.". when her
husband died, they wi re engaged in
the butcher business.
Mrs. Bureher had four children,
two of whom are dead. The others
are Charles, the proprietor of the
Spencer square grocery, and Mrs.
August Bruett. The funeral will oc
cur from the late residence Thursday
afternoon at -2 o'clock. Mrs. Bunch
er was beloved by all who knew her
for her kind and loving disposition,
and the family have many friends
who will sympathize with them in

F. J. Walz, observer of the weather
bureau at Davenport, has compiled a

for October for the past '22 years,
which furnishes some interesting

The prospect of an early appoint
ment of an internal revenue collector
for this district seems to be acting as
a stimulus to those expecting
subordinate positions under him.
There have been several candidates
for deputy collector in the lield for
some time, but the question of who
shall be stamp clerk is now being
agitated. A meeting of the Steven
son 4-lub has been called for tomorrow
evening, w hen it is understood that
the feasibility of bringing Leo J.
Iieisenroth out as a candidate for
statu) clerk will be considered. Mr.
Heisenroth is the secretary of the
club, and in view of his unfortunate
condition, his felhAv members are
especially desirous of showing their
appreciation of his worth by a unan
imous endorsement of him for that
position. A petition is being circu
lated favoring Miss Jennie Kane for
the (dace, and she has many friends
who would be pleased to see her suc

Two or three cabin boats have
passed down the river within the
past few weeks, but there are very
few of these craft, indeed, compared
with the number we used to see.
Not a great number of years ago they
were far more numerous than they
are now. They seem to be falling
into disfavor. The fact is that the
cabin boat, lieing nuable. and easi
ly shifted from the limits of a city
or county where a crime of thievery
or robbery was committed, was for
merly a favored place for the river
pirate, a mild mannered sort of des
perado, with a liking for whisky and
a dislike for work. When the' min
ions of the law came to i lose up to
it, it was easy to slip the moorings
and float down the river. Not all
cabin boat families have been this
sort, but many of them have. The
raiding of these places by police and
sheriff's forces has reduced their
number materially. It is safe to say
that there is not one aow where there
were half a dozen 15 years ago.

There seems to be an epidemic of

Last month a man was drowned at
Muscatine. It is stated that he was
a detective, and that he was there to
work up the dynamiting cases of last
May. It is further said that the
victims of that dastardly work, who
were in communication with him,
knew that he was possessed of a lot
of information, among which was
much that was expected to prove of
value. All this information perished
with him. This seems to lie the last
of any effort to catch the dynamiters.
No other person is known to lie en
gaged in it, or to have been engaged
in it in the past.

The effort to raise money in Miis-tr-atine

success. The if '.J.iuo subscription
