IT IS A HANDSOME STEUOTUEE. ti... U'et ttock in the three citiei. A Description or It Some guggrstlonii Another New nonlnrm Block In Troapect More nesldences Coins Up-Other Im provement. The city scale b,pnso on Market square is rapidly nearing completion; the finishing touches being put on today. Weighmaster Kimball is about thc proudest man in town to day, and is as happy in his new home as it is possible fbr anyone tob& The old scale honge has" vanished, and with it goes one of the eyesores of Rock Island. For years it has stood in Market square "and of late years it has become a nuisance in a way, for with all the improvements that have been made still it stood in the midst as a blot, but it has been obliterated, and in its stead a neat little building, an ornament to tb square has been erected. timcnlons. The new building covers a space of ground 1 1 by 22 feet, and just in side the Roman arches is a room for the weighmaster 9 by 12 feet and 9 feet high. The pavi'lion, or second tloor of the building is 10 feet and 8 inches above the pavement and is open on all sides. The floor is 13 feet wide by 21 feet long and is a suitable place for public speaking, band concerts, etc. The extreme height of the building from the ground up is 28 feet. The lire and police alarm box has leen moved from the pole in the cen ter 01 uie square to the corner near Ihomas' drug store, and the streetcar company will remove the pole from the square, and the little i.qeorii stand which has so Ion" held sway there, is to be removed, as is also the Jack fountain, as has been heretofore mentioned in The Alters. The building is of exceedingly neat and pretty design, and should" make every progressive citizen in Rock Island feel, as it does the weighmas ter, happy. It would be an excellent idea for the gentleman whose busi ness house faces the square, and who uses said square as a storehouse for his wagons, to be notified that the proper place for his wagons is in the alley or in a barn. They are surely no ornament, and further they block the street. A SuggcKtiiin. Ex-Mayor Henry Curse made an excellent suggestion this morning in view of the completion of the new pavilion, and which was to the effect that a set of Hags of the signal ser vice be secured by the city and that the weighmaster could attend to hoisting them from the Hag staff on the building. It would be a good place to display the weather indica tion signals, all lines of street ears passing in view of the building, and it is situated where all people in the the business neighborhood might readily seethe signals. The spaces for the clock dials are the only features of the building that are not ornamental. Cntil such time as the city decides to put a clock in t he building, either colored glass or paintings of some sort should be substituted. Oilier New ItullUitij:. Hon. E. W. Hurst has engaged Architect Stauduhar to draw the plans for a line brick building on his property on the north west corner of Twentieth street and Fourth avenue. The building will have a frontage of V26 feet on Twentieth street and !'7i feet on Fourth avenue. The lower llwr will contain seven store rooms and the second floor office rooms and suites. The building will be partlj- three stories high, and w hen completed will be one of Kock Island's prettiest business blocks. It will be erected this year. Collins l?ros. have contracts for a new residence for T. A. Murphy, on Elm street, to cost ?l,OnO; one for M. J. Iliggins, on Twenty-lirst street, lo cost $3,000; one for J. l). Sears, at Scars, to eost f 1,500, and one for Hamilton Terry, on Sixteenth street and Sixth avenue, to eost $3,000. Meyer Kosenfidd is having plans drawn up for threo 2-slory dwelling houses, on his property on J wen tieth street and Ninth avenue. The cost is estimated at about $3,000 each. Eli Mosenfeldcr is contemplating erecting some 5-rooni cottages in Columbia Park at a cost of about $1,500 each. Other Improvement. Dei sen roth & Wiesler have had their barlKT shop on Market square repapereil and the wood work neatly touched up, Lerch & tirave having the contract. Contractors Volk & Co. have com pleted the remodeling of the Crown restaurant, and the appearance- of tllis eating house is made much more inviting in consequence. Manntield Tonight. Richard Mansfield's engagement at the Ititrtis Oicra house this eve' iiing has anxiously been awaited with pleasant expectations. Mr. Mans field has strong talents as an actor in widely diversified characters. His literary skill and bis great ability as an artistic producer of plays has won for him a name second to none in this country. The public admire and respect Mr. Mansfield's excellent qualities, and that is -why be is now in the midst of the most brilliant and successful season he has ever known. The play which he has decided to produce is his celebrated character of "Prince Karl." CAN'T SEE IT. The Comity Supervisor' Idea of PahllsMns; Their Proceeding. At this morning's session of the board of supervisors, the matter of publication of the official proceedings for the ensuing year was discussed. Kills were submitted by the commit tee delegated yesterday to receive them, as follows: Rock Island Argl'S, $125; Union, $100; Rock Islander, $85; Moline Dispatch, $94; Moline Kcpuuiican-Journal, fi'J.ou. Mipcr visor Ford, of Moline, made a motion that the Rock Islander and the Republican-Journal be awarded the contract at $79.50. Supervisor Wilson offered an amendment that alt, fixe pajers bid ding bo awarded the contract at $50 each. The board adopted the mo tion, taking it lor granteil apparent ly that the papers would tumble over each other to accept the propo sition. Kidlcnloas. The low estimate which the board places on the value -of newspaper space is ridiculous, and The Ai;;rs is surprised that so aliurd a motion should be given serious con sideration, much less passed. It is the duty of the county board to have its proceedings published that the tax-payers of the county may know what their supervisors arc do ing, but official proceedings and all that the supervisors may take it into their heads to order into them are not. of so much value to a paper, that it can afford to publish them at a loss, and as far as The Ai:rs is con cerned it docs not propose to do so. The suiervisors waste time for which the tax-payers of the county are charged each year, trying to do something wise about the publica tion of the ollicial proceedings, w hich if applied to good effect would pay for the publication at resectable figures. The board's proposition as far as The Am; i s is concerned, is declined. Kiver Hiplettk The Zulus Davis came down with S strings of lumber. The C. W. Cowles, Gen.

About Keportern. In Pennsylvania a newspaper is prosecutin-ranian.and.it is likelv will send him to the penitentiary. for giving one of its reporters a false news item about a prominent couple having had bom to them four chil dren. Reporters of experience sel dom get caught with such games, but those do. who do not verify an item before publishing it. Many weary steps are taken by honest reporters at the expense of some smart person who -just told the story for a joke, you know." A reporters' strike is on against the chamber of deputies at Ruda Pesth. TheTeiKirters arc offended, and to get even arc refusing to re port speeches made by the legisla tors. Coroner's Inquest.
