No Sunday Restrictions as Far as the City is Concerned. BABSIEES BEHOVED LIST HIGHT. Council Repealed tba Section of tbe 31 a. nk-lpal Coda Kelatlaa; Thereto, mud Throws Entire Responsibility on the State The Amendment as Presented and Sustained The Discussion and Vote. The city council last evening re moved the barrier to the open saloon on Sunday under the municipal code, and hereafter, so far as the city is concerned, there need be no more closed doors, or even side doors. The front doors iuy be wide open, and the keeper is answerable only to the state law for his acts. In a word the city releases all restrictions which it has thrown about the lkjuor traffic, so far as regulatiDU of Sunday business is concerned, givinj; the state law full swing in the prem ises. May lie Wl.le Opnn. The city cf Kock Island thus comes uoder the same rule that governs in Chicago, Peoria and Qnincy, where the saloons run wideopen on Sunday, and the city in this case loses what control it has held over the saloons by confining the Sunday truHic to the side door. The result of the recent crusade under the' city ordinances has therefore been to open wide lae saloon ilooron Sunday, and to abolish the city's right to regulate rather than to produce effects of a reforma tory nature in a practical eenso. The satisfaction, however, of knowing that no municipal law is being vio lated mrsy compensate for the new conditions to prevail. Uock Island, it must be said though, has not been notoriously bad. Open violations of the city ordinances have not been the rule, and the side floor entrance has been an evasion not fraught with the evil results that are much more likely to occur where the city has not the advantage of holding the saloon-keeper in fear that he may be made at any time to answer for going ton far. The state law, as a matter of course, remains in force, but it will be found a much more tedious and laborous task to insure its continuous and scrupulous application than in the observation of the tendency as regards the eity ordinances. Hut Three Against It. The amending of the ordinance was favored by the entire council ex cepting Aids. Kennedy, Call and Nelson, who cast their "votes in the negative. The matter was presented by Aid. llauber, who received a sec ond from Aid. Johnson. Aid. Maucker made a strong argument for the pas. s.nga of the amendment, holding it as a serious question and worthy the consideration of any fair-minded per son who would look at the extenuat ing circumstances. If the city de sired to keep its own people at home, which was an impossibility under the funeral-like surroundings of recent Sundays, and encourage outsiders to visit here, concessions such as all modernized and life-like cities give to its business men should be granted to same extent at leas?, especially in view of the strong com petition offered by a siiter city. If Kock Island was isolated, " Aid. Maucker continued, thcrj would be naught to suffer. Cut existing fcir enmslanccs demanded that some thing bo done. It was not the sa-loou-keeper alone who Buffered, but every form of legitimate busi ness, and to cripple busine-s was to iujure the city. The saloon people contributed a vast amount anutially into the municipal coffers; their money was as good as any body's, and if people were going tn spend, and Davenport extended such a warm hand of encouragement, it was no more than justice to allow them an opportunity to squander it at home. But the alderman was strenuously opposed to permitting women in saloons, and believed everv stall should be removed from bar rooms. Another reason advauccd why the amendment should be car ried was to relieve city officials from the bore of the different factions. One day it was the women crying for reform and the following "day a saloon-keeper skouting for the cessa tion of the crusaders' persecutions. Aid. Maucker said he was tired tf it, aud believed every other alderman was, and thought the proper plase for parties with complaints was be fore the slate authorities. ! Ald.Konncdy took exception to Aid. I Maucker. views. As well ccmnicace the licensing of gambling deas and j houses of ill repute if the saloons were to be opened Sunday?, and moved that the ordinance be laid I over until the next meeting and al-1 low the aldermen an opportunity to think before acticg. Kennedy's amendment was put and lot: Ayes Kennedy, Call. Nelson 3. Nays Maucker, Dauber, Schroe der. Zies, Johnson, Surman, Tindall, Schreiner. Pender. Schneider 10. Aid. Dauber's original motion then carried, all voting aye but Kennedy. Call and Kelson. How the Ordinance "sow Reads. The amended ordinance as pre sented and adopted reads: Be it ordained by the citv coun cil of the city of Rock Island Sec-J lion 1: That section 8, article 6, chapter 14, of the general ordinances j of the city of Kock Island, be ! amended by striking ont therefrom ! the words," or apon Sundays,' so ' that said section w.il read: -So per-I sons-hall keep open an v saloon, dram shop, bar-roeni or any place licenced under this ordinance "at any time be- tween the hours of 12 p. m. and 5 a. j m.. nor upon election days before 7 p. m. under penalty of not less than 20 nor more than $100 for each of fense.' " THE ALLEY PAVING CASES. Judge Adams ntsln the Objections on a Vliul faint. In the county conrt yesterday af ternoon Judge Adams sustained the objections raised by Har old A. Weld representing the obstructing property holders af fected by the alley paving ordi nances, and the result way be of vital importance not only in this, but in all cafes of paving operations to be begun hereafter. Mr. Weld's contention was that the proceedings in question were begun under the operation of the new euactnicnt of the recent brilliant legislature, gov erning special improvements, and that as an amendment to the old law it applies to this case. This sec tion of the statutes provides that hereafter no special "tax shall be levied or assessed in any amount greater than the property so taxed is bcnelitcd, and that the ordinance im posing such tax shall cot bs con clusive of such bcnelits, and that while the present proceedings were begun under the old law, the con firmation must be construed as an ail imHriaut part of the proceedings aud a part of the essential formali ties. The confirmation having been delayed until the operation of the new law is in fjree, the court's ruling thereupon must be with the consid eration of the intent of the new sec tion. It is this point that Judge Adams sustains. To Attack Its Constitutionality. City Attorney J. I.. Haas intended this morning to attack the constitu tionality cf the all important sec tion, but was ill and so the further argument went over. This course may direct the proceedings into the higher courts for final interpretation of the legality of the legislature's act. THE HAND OF DEATH. Willi tm Allen Parses Away ut Davenpoit -Other Obituary. William Allen died this morning at 4 o'clock at his residence in Davenport, aged 8G.

"WOBEIED 0VES BUSINESS AFFAIRS. Uccause tbe Eoad Commissioner Turned a Stream onto His Farm Life Wasn't Worth Aaythtogv Suicides in the Pres ence c.f nia Family fomner's Inquest. Because the road commissioners turned a stream onto his farm near Coal Valley. William Mass considered his life worth nothing and ouded his earthly existence last night by send ing a bullet from a Si-calibre through his brain. Mass showed evidence "of worry since the improvement, some what detrimental to his land, was made, and on different occasions ex pressed himself as tired of life and said he would be better off dead. Hut he did not make any direct inti mation of committing the desperate act which ended his life last evening. The family retired at the usual hour, comparatively early in the country, and had little cause to watch the old gentleman. Fired In the Presence or Ills Wire. About 9:30 Mass arose from Lis bed and standing in the room near his wife, discharged the revolver, but the bullet missed him. The report awakened the family and in a mo ment the man's wife ami children were at his side appealing to him not to shoot again. He responded with threats to kill them all if they at. tempted to interfere and did not re turn to where they belonged. Then placing the revolver to" his right temple, he discharged the fatal bul let, falling to the lloor dead, in the presence of hi.? family. Mass was 50 yoars'of age. and was in comfortable circumstances, own ing a farm of 60 or 70 acres adjacent to Coal Valley. He is survived by a wife and six children. Coroner Hawes :s conducting an inquest over the remains. Iiurus Will Nut Make a Match Now. There is no hope of arranging a matca between "farmer ' Hums ami Dan McLeod, tho heavy-weight wrestlers, at the present time. A few days ago it seemed possible that Burns would post a forfait in Chi cago, says the Times-Herald, in sup port oi a challenge to the stocky little Californian, but Gage Hildcr beck. the champion's brother-in-law, who went down to Big Kock, Iowa, last week to confer with Burns, re turned with the information that Burns is still obdurate. Ha thinks Martin has no thought of making matches and tying up his money until after Nov. 1. when he will bo at perfect liberty to attend to all comers. "I never saw Burns in bet ter condition, and when I left he weighed 1S2 pounds," said Mr. Bil derbcok. He has more engage ments at fairs than he can attend to. MacMillan has left him to wrestle a match in Dakota, and Barns is meet ing ail comers. In addition to rest ling he has-purchased a couple of running horses, called Billy the Kid and J. y. Wells, aud is taking down purses with them at the fairs. For these reasons he does not cara to make matches while he is making money in oth"r and easier ways. He can get plenty of backing when the time comes." Wurl; tit Yauclal. A number of boys living in the vicinity of Twenty-fourth street and Eighth avenue have been annoying the neighbors of late by destroying vegetables, and otherwise making nuisances of themselves. M. Beal, who with his family has been away tin a visit, and who lives at 2100 Eighth avenue, this morning re turned home to iiod his tomato vines robbed and trampled and other dam age done. IIh is naturally very in dignant and it will not be well for the little vaudals if he puts his bands on them. Ilartl Coul Market.
