A Claim That It la Nat UaTtnc a Fair bow Wtwm taacity. To the patrons of the Tri-Clty Electric Sprinkler company: So maay inquiries are made every day as to the reason of the nonappear ance of the sprinkler this season, that a pnblic statement seems neces sary. The city of Bock Island baa never made any arrangement with " this company for the furnishing of water and the credit for service rendered on which the company can exist. The only arrangement heretofore made has been a demand on the part of the city for water rental five times as mnch as was paid by the wsjrons fur water for the same streets. The city bas arbitrarily guessed at the quantity nsed and has aim deter mined as to the amounts to be cred ited to the company for city sprink ling. This company bas had bo voice in establishing the charge either on one side or the other. The result is that the company bas lost money every year and can not eo further without a more equitable oasis. J. he meters put on the car last year iu Davenport demonstrate conclusively that tho city of Bock Island bas guessed twice as much water as we have actually used. W e have endeavored to bring these facts before the council, we have at tended two council meetings and two committee meetings and to the pres ent time have not obtained a bear ing. Our petition was referred to the ordinance and water committees. Since the reference two council meetings have been held and the committees have not yet met. Thnrsdav night we were notified of a meeting but the chairman of the wa'er committee was the only one to receive us. Thus as in the past we are compelled to meet the arbitary demands of the city or else abandon our business and lose our plant. 11' 1 - 1 I I - 1 n o nave not oeen aoie 10 realize out of the business all lhat the city demands; though we claim to be able to prove that we have actually paid the city for a larger quantity of water than we have nsed. As the city will not listen to these proofs, we offer to submit the matter to ar bitration and to furnish bond to"pay wnaiever is jouna against us, we to be reimbursed if a verdict is in onr favor. This would be pronounced fair by every one. We have actually gone further than this and have invited the council 1 to investigate the matter in a spirit of equity, and have pledged ourselves to accept the council's adjudication. in the absence 01 any action what ever on the part of the council, it is obvious that we are helpless and cannot continue our business. We are determined not to continue it longer on a basis that will not enable us to pay expenses. Because we are nnablu to force two and two to make five, some feeling has been engen dered and we are confronted with the threat that two wagons may be secured to do the work as formerly. The city realized 170 a year from the two wagons. It we are supplanted by two wagons, we ask wherein is the city the gainer by the exchange? Certainly that 5-mile stretch of ave nue, the main entrance to the city, would not be wet down and rendered as inviting to travel and trade as it has been made by our system. Let it be honestly conceded tbat ine general public derives a benefit and let an allowance be made, not for all this benefit, but for enough to offset the water bill and the system could not only be continued but ex. tended. An allowance of 600 per year in water would only be 3 cents per year for each inhabitant of the city. Who would object? We are not asking of Bock Island more than we are asking of Moline and Daven. port. Moline rates have been based on Bock Island rates and a precedent of fairness established by Bock Island we believe will bo followed by Mo line, especially as the mayor of Mo line assures us that, in his opinion, free water is no more than just. Davenport will also agree to a pro position to pay for intersections. We are furnishing the best ser vice that can be found anywhere in the world, and at a cost of just one balfthatin Dcs Moines and other cities sprinkled in dabs by wagons. That our service is appreciated by our patrons we are thoroughly con vinced, and we desire to publicly ex press oar thanks for the spontaneous offers of sympathy and assistance our diflicnlties have called forth.

The season's first raft for the south passed down yesterday in tow of the Bart E. Line ban. Boats no were the Butlcdee. Pres. cotte and Pilot, while the Verne Swain was in and out. The stage of water at the Bock Isl and bridge this morning was 1.90 and rising; the temperature 80. Capt. Wash Higbt, the Koclc Island rapids pilot, bas hove into port from the south and will oe on deck all summer to guide boats over the un certain passage. The Mary Morton and Helen Suhn- lenbrg will attend to the travel be tween the two cities and OlTermann's island this summer. The island has been leased by Charles Kindt and Prof. Otto, of Davenport. The Matt Allen, which uapt. Wal ter Blair will put into the excursion business between Burlington and Clinton this season, is being over hauled at Kahlke Bros', yards and may be expected to make her ap pea'rance most any day now. The Matt Allen will be captaiued bv J. H. Lacock and Bichard Hogan will be the mate. , -Bivermen are on the lookout for a good sized rise in the river at this point in m lew days or as soon as the swell can reach here .from St. Paul, where the stream bas reached an unusual depth. But the rise can't come too soon for the rivermen here. as the shallowness of the stream has prevented any of the packet line steamers to tread in this locality. evidence ox me about the little cottage on the river bank where the rapids pilots hold forth during the summer season is onccjmore percep tible. Wash lligbt arrived yester day from St. Louis and John Souter has come down from Le Claire. These two gentlemen will attend to the rapid piloting from this end dur ing the coming summer, and will therefore be the occupants of the cottage. The Libbie Conger, which left for the south several days ago, will plv under a new ownership this. year. Negotiations for the purchase of the boat nave been in progress for some time, and the deal was closed at St. Louis yesterday, Capt. Jacob Bicht man transferring the steamer to Cap tains H. F. Jones, of Wagner, I. T., and G. W. Season,, of Fulton, Ark.. for 13,000 cash. There was some talk of operating the Conger on the Missouri this year, but tn view of the change of ownership she will probably bo run as a free lance in the lower Mississippi trade. The favorite packet W. J. Young made something of a record on a re cent trip to Burlington. She was wind bound at Muscatine and tied up last Wednesday night,' leaving for Burlington Thursday morning at 6 o'clock. Between Muscatine and Bur lington considerable time was made np, the Young polling into Muscatine at 11:30, having covered 30 miles of the run in I hour and 35 minutes. The fastest time was made between Muscatine and New Boston, the Young gliding over that stretch at the rate of 19 miles an hour. Capt. Blair's natty and popular packet has the reputation of being a flyer and this run indicates tbat she can hold her own with the best of them on the upper river. i Wlii r. la BoricbanMar Deputy Sheriff Hull yesterday opened at the storehouse of the Augustana college a trunk which was lelt there a little over a year ago by a yoang man wuo said he was going to Chicago and intended returning to the college.

Of the performance of Bulwer's Richelieu," to be given by Thomas Kaene, the great actor, and his com- p tny at the Burtia this evening, the Atlanta Constitution says: "The a tdience at the Lvceum theatre last night saw a presentation of Bulwer's masterpiece, 'Richelieu,' that need not tear comparison or criticism. And it is a matter of local congratu lation that such a large audience witnessed the well known master piece and testified its appreciation by such enthusiastic and discrimi nating applause. Thomas Keene de serves such a testimonial. His art bas ripened with years and study. He is today an admirable type of the legitimate actor, with honors hon estly won and with a fame from which nothing can detract. 1 VI James A. Hemes charming pastoral play, "Shore Acres," to be presented at the Burtis Sunday night, someone who witnessed its Chicago presentation has written; "lhere are tears as well as laughter in this wonderful play. Tears that wash away the stains of eordid sel fishness; tears that bedew the sym pathies, that moisten the heart and make it fertile for the seed of broth erly love; tears that catch the sun. beam of sacrifice and scintillate with the warm, rich colors of honest en deavors; tears that brighten the eyes, while the lips are wreathed in smiles. The play has the element of greatness, for it portrays real life with a fidelity to truth that boldly casts the figures, that deftly sug gests, without labeling, the expres sions, the motives and the life of the soul, that tints the skies and out lines the perspectives until the great canvas grows ont of its gilded frame and softly, gradually, nnbrokenly becomes the wonderful scene one may view from a dormer window in the house of observation." .Dntoa Uepot laatlaa. The attorneys for the people in the Twentieth street depot case a few days since received word that the Cairo case, on which the fight in the Rock Island union depot litigation is oasea, would be ar?ued in the su preme court of the United States at Washington this week, and tbat the statement iu the Chicago papers marcn i apa copied here .to the effect that the railroad company had agreed to give np the fight and run its trains into Cairo, was a canard. The Cairo cae was argued by attor neys on both sides in the supreme court last Tuesday and Wednesday and win probably oe decided soon. Erseaaa From CalUifeood. Biupfoud, III..
