The Injunction in the City Hall .Project. THIS MOKHIHQ'S P0S0EEDISGS. Too BUI Road by W. H. lint and Jade Oloaa Pmaiu tho Writ to laaae-The Bond Fixed at 3,O0-Who It l Far. alabed by-What Other C'lMaa Are DolaC. Judge Glenn in the circuit court this morning granted to John Volk a temporary injunction against the city ol Kock Island to prevent it from building a city hall at the present time. Hon. W. H. Gest read the bill praying for permission to lile the in junction, in which he set forth that the city having already reached its constitutional limit of indebtedness that it be restrained from assuming further financial responsibility; that at divers times and that divers per sons, among them John Volk and H. C. Sc halter, had asked City Clerk A. I). Huesing for the propositions, etc., in the building matter, and that each time he had said that bo did not have them. Particular hires is. for some reason unknown, laid on these allegations. City Attorney Haat asked that ac tion in the matter be deferred in or der that he might sec the bill, and form sonio sort of defense. He said that the gentlemen might rest as sured that the council would do nothing further in the matter until this matter was disposed of, and that he would like very much to have a chance to be heard. Judge Glenn ruled in favor of the complainant and the injunction was allowed. Abend of $5,00) was re quired to lie given, and it was signed by Dr. C. Tmesdale, J. F. Robinson ami T. J. ltobinson. To Ita Itecretted. Tub Aleut s very much regrets the aoect the city ha'll undertaking has assumed, for no matter w hat objec tions may In? entertained against the favored location, it does not seem necessary that proceedings of this nature should have ensued. The AtiiiLS does not lielieve that Mr. Volk or any of those who are identi fied with him in this course against the city unless it be the one whose general attitude toward public enterprises is too well known to necessitate comment here is really opposed to the city erecting a new municipal building, and we verv much fear that a spirit of prejudice has had much to d.i with the matter, and this without for an instant ques tioning the motives of the petition ers. The effict of the injunction will of course lie to delay indeiinitely the construction of the city hall. In due time a motion to dissolve the injunc tion will be entered on the part, of the city, but there will necessarily be more or less uncertainty, and there is always the possibility of appeal to the higher courts, and the conse quent delay. Peoria oa the Itlclit Trark. While Rock Island is hesitating on the subject of a new city hall other cities around about us are cither agitating the matter or are going ahead with plans heretofore adopted. As has been said. Springfield, in our own state, and our neighboring city of Clinton, have completed buildings under just such clrcumstahccs as are proposed in Hock Island, while a numlter of other smaller cities in the state Spring Valley, for instance are going ahead in the same lines, and without objection of any sort attending such undertaking. 'Down in Peoria they are discussing the subject Tf a new city hall, as the fol lowing from the Herald of that city clearly indicates: The present city hall is, as Colonel Taylor says, "a monumental disgrace to the second city in Illinois.11 It is suggested to the city council that the present structure might be sold to the new Columbian museum in Chicago at a pretty stiff price. It is probably the only city hall of the kind on earth, and unless the museum buys it its collection of antique and misfit curios will be incomplete. Let ns have a new city. ball.. We have outgrown the present carica ture called by the name of "city hall'.11 If arrangements can be made to begin work on it late in the sum mer or early In the fall, so much the Ix-tter. But before accepting the plans or acting npon any. the city council should look into the matter of building a city hall continued with a city market. " such as Springfield has. Let us have a good and useful building while we are building. Uad to Kill tbe Morse. A horse, owned by William Avery, father of Mrs, A. M. lilukesley, resid ing on Twenty-third street, was be ing ridden on Twenty-first street last evening, between Fifth and Seventh avenues, and in one of its canters, it ran into a pile of lumber, which ex tended out in the road some distance, and broke its collar bone The horse's sufferings were put to an end with a revolver, as there was no hope for its reoovery. Archie Corken, who was riding the horse, luck ily escaped with only a severe shak ing op. Blver Rtoleta. The Irene D. and F. C. A. Denk mann went north. ; " The F. C. A.

The last horse car will vanish from the vision of the people of the three cities tonight, in all probability, and hereafter electricity will lie the mode ot propulsion in all cases. W ho with pride in the city, and appreciation of all tbat contributes to modern pro gress, will shed tears of regret when the last evidence of mule power shall have disappeared!' lif' tire ..matter of mo.les .-f local tnrnsit the cities of Rock Island, "Moline and Davenport have been in advance of other cities of equal population tbronghout the country ever since the present ownership of the tri city lines ' began, anoV -it is no fault of theirs that the bridge branch of the system has not been brought up to the others in proper equipment before this. The company has sought since the introduction of electric mo tive power the privilcge,-of bringing the line between Kock Island and Dav enport np to the standard of its gen eral system, bat it was not until the past winter that 'the proper 'authori ty could be obtained to make the de sired change. Once having the right to make the improvement, the company lost no time in preparing for it, and unless something now un foreseen intervenes the trial trip be tween Rock Island and Davenport by electricity will bo made late this afternoon or this evening, and if everything proves satisfactory the regular service will be entered upon tomorrow. The New Servlro. There will be live cars on this branch, four of which will be started out at lirst and are expected to far. nish the service of six to eight horse cars, the difference in time being made up within the cities of Rock Isl and and Davenport and on Fort Arm strong avenue, though the sp-ed will lie more or less limited over the en tire government possessions. Each of the electric motors will be manned by two men, a motornian and con ductor, and the company will re quire that the crews be nicelv uni formed from the first, and no ex ception will be permitted under any circumstances. While the cars are the same color as those running on the Kim street line in Rock Island anil the Northwest Davenport line in Davenport, which, were originally Uesignea 1 for the v bridge line nd which will eventually be repainted the standard color of canary yellow, there need, be no confusion in the meantime, as the bridge cars are much longer than the others and are readily designated day and night by the appearance of the "words "Bridge Line" cut in tbe -sides and ends of the transoms. Electrical Engineer-Fredericks will arrive from Chicago tomorrow morn ing to oversee the starting of the cars, and the company -will make an effort to begin running by eleetrici ity on the bridge line tomorrow, though it may be disappointed. President Loudcrback may also be here to witness the formal inaugura tion. HORSES POISONED.
