and CooncU A Tour of the Three Cities
Itinerary for the City. Uietti While
There arrived in Rock Island over
the C, M. & St. T. road last night a
party 01 municipal olhcers from
Elpin, whose mission is to inspect
the paved streets of Rock Island and
ad joining cities, and make a peneral
inspection 01 the three municipalities
with a view to ascertaining if there
are possessed in any of them advan
tages wormy or emulation.
The Elgin party registered at the
Harjcr, where those comprising it
were received by Mayor Medill, City
Clerk llucsing. Chief of Police Sexton
and most of the aldermen, together
with other city officials. The visiting
municipal officials who thus become
Rock Island's special cucsts. include
Mayor William Grote, City Treasur
er J. 11. Williams, Supt. of Streets
V. D. Stedman and Aids. F. E. Al
len, L. 11. Provost, F. W. Siegen, Al
bert Fehrnian. J. W. Sehanim. W. A.
Ballou, R. II. Seidcl, D. R. Beebe,
Louis Schroeder, W. H. Hrydgcg and
Frank Webster. After thc'arrival of
the visitors, the mayor and others of
his party took them out for a little
walk through the business portion of
the city, and wound up at Harms1
restaurant, where a lunch was
served, and a season of sociability in
Oat on Inspection.
This morning the work of inspec
tion began. Major Medill and other
Uock Island officials and aldermen

The visitors after leaving the Har
per house drove down Second avenue,
and crossing to Ninth and Third to
fire alarm box 14, where the mavor
sent ia a fire alarm. Unfortunately
this especial box was out of order,
which prevented the fire department
from making its customary excellent
time, but as it was, the department
made a fair showing.
The paved streets of the city com
pleted and in progress were traversed,
when the party proceeded to Molinc,
where Mayor "Bennett received and
entertained the visitors pleasantly.
Returning to Rock Island, via the
island, for dinnor, the Elgin people
went to Davenport this after
noon under escort of Mayor Medill.
The streets there arc to be examined
and other institutions looked into,
whereupon the visitors come to this
side and become Uock Island's guests
again, going to the Tower for supper
at the inn. Mayor Vollmer accompany
ing them by invitation. Later in the
evening, if time will admit, the vis
itors will be taken to Hincher's gar
dens to enjoy the concert by Otto's
Thlnki Well or Bock Island.
Mayor Grote was out bright and
early this morning, and he got his
first peep of Spencer square just
about the time old Sol did. An Aa
Gi s representative greeted him as he
stood gazing in admiration upon it.
"That is one of the handsomest parks
I ever saw," he volunteered. "It is
a credit to this city, as it would be to
Then he asked numerous questions
about the manner in which it was
conducted, where all the beautiful
ornaments came from. etc.. and con
cluded by saying that while Elgin
had a large park well under way, it
had a square not far from the busi
ness center that could just as well
lie converted into a beauty spo.t like
Spencer square, as not, and he
seemed disposed to give the idea fur
ther thought, probably after his re
Mayor Grote complimented Rock
Island on its paved streets, and par
ticularly its street car system at
which he was greatly surprised, and
which he said he proposed to look
into with more than common inter
est, as he is president of the Elgin
street railways. In Elgin he said
they have no brick paving yet, cedar
block being the material used there
up to date. Mayor Grote is very
proud of his city," and from what the
Rock Island aldermen say who vis
ited that city last spring, he may
well feel so.
Game Here to Settle.
Frank Wawncr. representing the
A. L. Due Fireworks company of
Cincinnati, arrived in Rock Island
this morning for the purpose of hav
ing a writ of replevin issued, in
hopes of rescuing the fireworks ap
paratus of the "Americus" company
from the attachments, Wawner
claims that the apparatus is not the
Cropcrty of the "Amcricus" people,
ut was only loaned to them by his
company. The writ will be issued
by Justice Weld.
G. A. Meyer, also of Cincinnati,
and Robert Ferguson, one of the
vAnicricus" managers, are in the city
too, attempting to make a settlement
and release the scenery, etc. At
least this was the purport of a tele
gram sent to Adair Pleasants yester
day afternoon, it stating that Mr.
Meyer would be in Rock Island today,
and instructing Mr. Pleasants to hold
off further claims, as a settlement
might be made today.
Parks' Sure Cure is a positive

Cure excels all other medicines for
rheumatism and urinary disorders."
