Commute Appointed to Aet la Coocert With Similar Rod ire From Burronndlnc Tow.. Coaeernln the Sit. and Financial Jaeetlon Importance of the Matter. That Roek Island will contribute its influence and financial, support toward ton movement to locate the proposed Western Insane hospital within the county borders was given hearty expression by a number of representative and energetic citizens who gathered at the Kock Island Im provement association rooms last evening to discuss feasible prelimi naries and a coarse of action. It the pecuniary bcnelits to be derived from an institution of this nature could be fully realized by the county at large the efforts of those striving with the movement would not only be ap preciated, but would, as they cer tainly should, have the cooperation o ercry individual with the advance ment and upbuilding of the county at heart. While the meeting was largely attended and everything per taining to the matter intelligently discussed and action so far as prac tical taken, there is much to be done, and as it is a qncstien of gen eral importance, the situation should be grasped by everyone, who should stand prepared "to do a share toward anything materially assist ing in the movement. . Ttie Initial B:ep. The initial step, in Hock Island shows this city ready for action. Last night's meeting was called to order by W. P. Q, uayle, and W. B. Ferguson called to the chair. C. '. l.vnJe was made secretary. The ob ject of the meeting was outlined by the chairman, after which views of many of the gentlemen present were heard. The advantages to a commu nity having such an institution were fully illustrated by Mr. Quayle, who enumerated the benefits vtbe la borer, the merchant and the property-holder to bo derived not alone from the enhancement of land valua tion, but principally from the enor mous amount annually appropriated for tho maintenance "of a hospital, and the large sum, in the neighbor hood of $000,000, to be expended in its construction. So, too, would its location here mean a saving of no less than $1,000 annually to the county in the transportation of its insane patients. Mr. luavle spoke of the favorable impression left by Gov. Altgeld on the supervisors1 committee on its recent visit to the capital, but ho, nevertheless, urged action to shw that Rock Island manifested interest in the matter. Valuable, suggestions were also made by C. F. LynJe, States' Attor ney Searlc. Maj. J. M. Bcardslev, William McEniry and E. II. Guycr. Committee Apjiointed. On motion of C. J. Searle the chair was instructed to appoint a commit tee of three, of which the niavor sbould be one, to cooperate with "the Moline, Milan, supervisors' commit tee.', ana any other like bodies ap pointed by county towns, in a har monious movement with the object of bringing the prizo somewhere within the county's borders. The coraaiittee chosen is: Mavor B. V. Knox. Maj. II. C. Connelly and William MuEnirv. In compliance with the surcestions offered, and like the other commit tees. Rock Island's committee will receive sites isnd options and ligures thereon. This is to be done impar tially and without regard to location. just so it is inside Kock Island county, whose natural advantages water supplv. excellent sani tation beside railroad and river facilities, arc universal. The sites will be presented for the com mission's consideration when it visits this community, and the most avail able will be chosen in Rock Island county if superior to one offered by a competing city. ineaiiian committee. Messrs. F. H. Caldwell, F. M. Tindalland I'hilir. Zahn, was present. Mr. Caldwell stated that Milan would do her share and anything else that might lead to accomplish the desired end. I he meeting was adjourned sub- ject to call. Leased tbe Paper Mill. John F. Clark, of Marseilles. Ill- has leased of the receiver for the bondholders of the Columbian Straw Paper company the former Graham mill and plant at Scars, and will on- erate it henceforth. Mr. Clark is now in tbe city, and the mill is pre paring to resume. The mill has been suspended since the latter tart of December. Mr. Clark stated to an Argus re presentative this afternoon that the extent of the lease would denend upon the process of the courts which would eventually dispose of the prop erty. He proposed, however to nnt n the necessary repairs and begin operations at once. He will bring arsenics sucn men as he is unable to secure here. Mr. Clark operates paper mills at Marseilles, and is experienced and has been suc cessful in the business.

An attempt at criminal assault was discovered in the Linday & Phelps lumber yard on enst Third street, Davenport, yesterday after noon, in which a nan who gave the fictitious name of Tom Powers was the offender. Several em ployes of the Davenport Gas com pany were looking out of tho upper windows of that institution which overlooked the lumber yard, and were eve witnesses to the whole affair. Three of the men at once led the works, and slipping quietly across th street. ook tho villain completely by surprise when they suddenly taj-s4 Irora behind a Imge Inmbflfjalto. 9nsay the leat, tho fellow UJ t handled gently by the men who collared him and bustled hiua across the street to the Gas company's office, where he was detained pending the arrival of the patrol wagon. Sain be a Milan Man. The Times says: "The man was taken to the station, where he will remain in custody nntil his prelimi nary hearing, when he will doubtless be bound over to the grand jury, as there are several eye witnesses to the episode. Althongh he gave the name of Powers, it is known that his real name is Ashcraft, and that he resides in the vicinity of Milan, 111. He is a man about forty years f age. The victim of the attempted outrage is a little girl 11 years of ago. who resides near Third and Iowa streets. In company with her little 5-year-old brother she was carrying her father's dinner to him. Ashcraft met the pair and enticed them into the lumber yard, and but for the timely interference of the men from the gas works, he would doubtless have accomplished his brutal de sign." J he man was given 83 davs todav for plain assaalt. Rejected the Brick. The samples of common brick to be used in the construction of the Kock Island postofl-'s building have been rejected by the government experts at Washington, and the probability is that pressed brick will now be specified.

The Aaaeaament Roll la Bonnd ts be la. pro red and City Attorney Unas Molds That the City Can Proceed and That Contractors Will be Safe. Much inquiry has naturally been made as to the status of the Twelfth street paving, and as to how long the street is to be kept in its present condition, which in some places is practically impassable, a number of vehicles having already been upset and one citizen has sought damages from the city in consequence. There is no reason why the pav ing operations should not go forward. The new assessment roll will come up iu 1 ne county court as soon as Judge Adams returns, when City Attorney Haas will aim to secure immediate approval of the same. Mr. Haas said this morning that there was nothing to hinder the pro gress of tho work and that the city sooner or later in any event would secure a court ruling in its favor, and the contractors undertaking the job would be perfectly secure. When tho original assessment roll was knocked out os legal technicalities the Edwards & Walsh Construction company surrendered its contract, but the council has fully empowered the mayor to enter into negotiations with any contractors looking to the putting "in of tho paving. Ho Keaaoa fnr Delay. As far as the proceedings in court are concerned they need not hinder construction work one iota, the prop erty holders who have sought to i terrupt the progress, relying, it is quite evident, eutirely on delay, as there is no ground for issue on" the city's power to do the work as long as its ordinances como in all re spects within the provisions of the law. Mr. Haas believes the present ordinance will hold in the faee of all attacks, and with this assuraneec it seems that the city would be fully warranted in going ahead with its paving operations, which are a great source of labor supply in Rock Isl and, as well as providing a good street in this instance where it is sadly needed. Let the good work go on. A Midnight Accident. An unfortunate mishap marred tho pleasure of a moonlight jaunt beimr enjoyed by Otto Huber, Charles Bu- lonl and Charles Stockhouse last night. About ten bells and a half one of the trio suggested a spurt on meir wneeis 10 an inn ana return. The roads were in excellent condi tion, the moon shone with all her splendor, the atmosphere was re freshing hence tho pleasure of such a trip was beyond cstima. tion. So they went. Everything was ioveiy until the old lair grounds on mnin street were reached on tho return trip. Here tho trees overhanging the road darkened the thoroughfare somewhat, not bettered by the lamps which the pen tlemen had attached to their wheels Ihev were speed in?; alonir rather lively, when all of a sudden the faces of two pulling steeds confronted them. Messrs. Buford and Under turned qnickly to either side and es caped collision. But Mr. Stock- house was less fortunate. He ran squarely into the horses and vehicle, demolishing the fore wheel of his bicyclo. Mr. Stockhouse was thrown headlong beneath the animals' feet. and considers himself more than lucky in escaping bodily injury. ine pariy gathered together the remains and footed it home.
