USE EVERY ENERGY No Effort Should Be Spared to Secure the New Hospital. WILL BE 0US BY PROPER WORK. the County stud, Ready to Pa It Share Md Business Hn BBoald Do Likewise Tho Comnluloitn Expected to Visit tbe Coentjr the Coming Weak. In the light of present circum stances and appearances Kock Island county is reasonably certain of se curing tbe location 01 tbe proposed new Western Insane asylum. All indications favor its coming here. Every advantage is possessed and only the proper effort is necessary to the winning of the location. On the ques tion of sites and surroundings the county leads any other locality in the state; on railway facilities it is unexcelled; on tbe subject of water its superior opportunities are con ceded; in the matter of fuel it will hold its own with any. So that with alf these points .taken in con sideration Rock Island county, it seems, must only be true to itself to win. It must back up its own claims. It must "permit no other county to outdo it in the matter of financial inducements. County Ready to Do Its Share. The part that the county of Rock Island is to do officially in securing the location of the projected institu tion is not confined to the appoint ment of committees, etc. When the board of supervisors held its last session the sentiment was carefully and accurately canvassed as to how the members stood on the further question of financial responsibility, and it was reliably ascertained that the supervisors to a man stood for covering the hand of every other county, and going it one or two bet ter if necessary. So far so good as regards the coun ty, but there will be other demands for funds, and to provide for these a private subscription should be started. That a liberal response will attend such an undertaking has been abundantly demonstrated by tbe lisosition manifested by those who have been already informally ap proached. Rock Island does not propose to be outdone in this mat ter. It believes it is the choice for the location, and it will not treat it with indifference the opportunity, but seize it. It will stand on its rights. The Commission. The recently appointed commis sion on the location of the new asy lum, it is expected, will visit the of fered sites tho coming week. Rock Island should be prepared at that lime to present its claims with all the backing that is essential to make an immovable impres.sion. TUK I'KorEK sITE. The Hodman and Adjoining Tract Will be Ottered. The negotiations between J. M. Buford and T. J. Rodman, of Chi. cag.i, the latter representing tbe seven heirs of the estate, with a view to securing the Rodman tract south of Chippiannock cemetery, as here tofore described in The Argus, re sulted most satisfactorily, and the prospects are that there 'will be no difficulty in securing the land on reasonable terms this much to Mr. Ku ford's credit. The property em braces but 1C0 acres, however, and as 240 are necessary under the bill providing for tbe hospital, 80 more will be necessary. To acquire these Mr. Buford has conferred with rep resentatives of the Weyerhauser syndicate owning the adjoining land, and was gratified to find a spirit of cooperation in the matter and a willingness to turn over, on rea sonable terms, so much of the land as may be necessary for the purposo in end. This manifest liber alty should be appreciated, for it shows that Rock Island will not suf fer when those in a position to ad vance our interests are called upon to contribute. Commissioner Sllvls In (ialesbara;.

But will he ronie back? William Goodhardt and Claude Mcanor, Officer Carlson's assail ants, have been released from the county cooler, having furnished the 300 bonds.

Following up Judge Adams' decis ion favorable to the objecting prop erty holders to the alley paving pro ceedings on the point of the bearing of the act of the last legislature in the premises. Attorney II. A. Weld today attempted to have the entice proceedings dismissed and made a plea to that effect. City Attorney Haas combattcd- the . motion, and after a vigorous argument on both sides. Judge Adams declined to rule to dismiss. To FU tho Benefits. On the contrary he set next Wednesday as the day for hearin g the case on the question of benefits before a jury which will determine the same. Tbe ruling was a sort of a knocker in view of the tendency which is not only to attack the alley paving project, but the entirc'paving progress of street improvements yet to follow, including Twelfth street, and it is likely that the supreme court may yet pass upon tbe matter before it is entirely disposed of. BIKES ARE NOT BAGGAGE. The Milwaukee Baa Tired of Carrying Wheels for Accommodation. General Baggage Agent Carrick, of the St. Paul road, has prepared a tariff on bicycles which will be put in force at once. The rapid increase in the bicycling uraze has led the St. Paul, in common with some other roads, to fix a regular tariff for transporting the wheels. Charge will be made at excess baggage rates, and will be governed by the amount the wheelman has paid for his ticket. If $5 or less, the charge for his wheel will be 25 cents: if $7, it will be 50 cents; if $11 or 112. the charge will be 75 cents; if $ 25, there will be a tax of $1.50. At the rates laid down a wheelman taking his wheel with him to the Pacific coast will have to pay 15. The same tariff will be charged for tricycles and baby carriages, js one 01 these vehicles will be carried at less than 25 cents. About the Depots. Chief Dispatcher W. W. Scott, of the Rock Island, and wife are in Bos ton. Engineer James' Shechan and wife departed this morning for the Massa chusetts metropolis. Master Mechanic A. II. Stocks, of the C, R. I. & P., accompanied by his wife, went to Boston tbis morn ing. The Rock Island Knights Templar special on the C, B. & Q. was two hours late arriving at Chicago, ow ing to a mishap to a preceding train at Aurora. About eighty-five Shrincrs from Rock' Island. Muscatine, Davenport andAIoline left over the Rock Island this morning for Chicago, where they join the Aurora commandery and take a special train on to the Boston conclave. A partv of Rock Island officials came in on an investigating trip to day, it being the new general super intendent's initial visit: They were: Assistant General Manager Allen, General Superintendent Hitt and Division Superintendent Nichols. What was considered the finest train ever leaving Kansas City passed thrdugh over the Rock Island this morning en route to Boston. It con sisted of seven vcstibulcd sleepers, one baggage and a commissary car, tastily arrayed with Knights Tem plar banners. It carried Kansas City commandery Id, and Oriental commandery 35. A new engine for the Northwestern that has just been received at Clin ton is said by the papers of that place to be a marvel. It is No. 901, and has drive wheels 75 inches in diameter, with 19-inch cylinders. It is being broken in on a freight, for use on one of the limiteds between Chicago and Clinton. It is provided with all the latest improvements air brakes on every wheel. It is un derstood the company will invest in more of these engines. River Rlplets. The Ravenna brought down eight strings 01 logs. Kit Carson brought down eight strings of himber. The stage of the water at the Rock Island bridge at coon was 1.05 and falling; tbe temperature 80. The Lumberboy, Joe Long. West Rambo and Verne Swain came down, and the Jo Long, Kit Carson, West Rambo, Ravenna and Verne Swain went north. The steamer Sidney is now the only boat that is rnnning between St. "Louis and St. Paul.

CREATED QUITE AH IMPRESSION. Aa Almost Unprecedented Downfall la a abort Length of Time Streets Flooded and Mora or Less Damage Dona to Property. The novelty which we had Tester- day afternoon in the way of refresh ing downpours has been the topic ol conversation ever since. People seem to have difficulty in compre hending what happened. It came so suddenly and so forcibly that the long hoped for was upon us before it was realized, and those who com plained of the force of the precipita tion lost sight of the fact that it was just what they bad been praying for. Altogether a little over four inches of water fell between the time of tho first shower early yesterday morning and the breaking of the clouds this morning, but in the hour during the deluge yesterday afternoon from 2:10 to 3:10 two inches fell, an almost unprecedented record for such a length of time. ' The Dammge. The storm came with so much force that it did considerable dam age, although not nearly so severe as on the occasion of tho last down pour. There was the nsual rush of water and mud from the bluff addi tions, and the volume that came down Nineteenth and Twentieth made the intersections at Third ave nue almost impassable. Hartz & Bahnsen experienced another siege, and but for the vigilance shown by Ben Harts would have suffered more severely than at the former flood. As it was the firm was greatly in convenienced, and Mr. Hartz i'n re marking on the matter this morning stated that he was getting pretty tired of the situation, and it would not be surprising it he made some radical move in the interest of self protection soon. As stated yesterday, the cast wall of the foundation for the new Hurst block on Twentieth street between Third and Fourth avenues collapsed during the deluge, and the walks along Seventeenth street and Fifth avenue, surrounding the J. K. John ston property were washed out. The new Kim street pavement was swept of sand as clean as you please, but the covering was dumped on the street car tracks on Fifth avenue, where it caused some trouble. All the bluff neighborhoods witnessed a sudden movement in real estate, and the people further down realized its tendency to go downward before the uproar and, the downpour. Io the Country. Throughout the country farmers are rejoicing over the rain. It was badly needed not so much for the crops, which are generally safe, as for stock and for meadows." Altogether the rain was a very good thing. COLLIDED WITH A CAR. B. P. Baugbmaa Thrown From a Wagon and ouite severely Injured. Kim street car No. 46 in charge of Motorman Stephen Kelso, and B. F. Baughman's ice wagon came to gether at the corner of Twenty, fourth street and Fifth avenue early this morning with quite serious re sults. Mr. Baughman, who was accompanied by his son, was precipi tated into the street, sustaining wounds in the shoulder, scalp and other portions of tbe body, while the other ocenpant escaped injury. The car, speeding along Tather lively, was derailed and came very nearly dashing into a residence. The damage to the car is covered in the smashing of the dashboard. Might Have Been Worse. The collision? might have termin ated more seriously, Mr. Baughman's good fortune in getting the horses across the traok before the clash probably preventing a fatality. Baughman delivers ice for the Crys tal company of Davenport, whither he was headed when the accident oc curred. Two cars were coming in opposite directions, but apparently Mr. Baughman observed only one the east bound. He harried to cross the thoroughfare before its arrival, and just as the wagon was leaving the track the west-bound motor crashed into it. Dr. Paul wits sum. moned and dressed Mr. Baughman's injuries, and the car was replaced and taken to the barn for repairs. Null Is Hope's). Bailiff S. S. Hull returned this morning from Chicago minus the ob ject of his mission, yet he expresses confidence in tbe early apprehension of the black double murderer. Hull claims to have tracked Tyler into Chicago, where he is of the opinion he still remains. The case has been laid before the Chicago authorities, and Hull believes Tyler will be cap tured ere manv moons. I abor Dnjr Privileges For Hale. Bids will be received by J. W. Cavanaugh and M. W.
