BUI THE APPEOPRIATION STAHDS. Hirer Front Imptmmtat A gala Til aenpae After a Ylaroreaa right la the Face at am Attempt to Cast It Avid. Failure would have overtaken the much agitated and much desired river front improvement at the city rouncil chamber but for the vigorous tight on the part of a couple of aldtr men with the interests of the public at heart and const ijncntl y favorable to the project. The report of the committee appointed to devise wars and means of raising money to con duct next year's affairs excluded any reference to the levee. That $2,000 appropriation recently made wi cast aside. But this occasioned an objection and once more the question triumphed in the face of defeat. This all happened last evening. While the council was in commit tee of the whole with Aid. Nelson in the chair to reconsider the annual appropriation, there were some lively discussions. In due time the river front improvement question came up. Aid. Tindall said that the people in the central section of the city were not in favor of it. If they wanted this improvement, he far ther contended, it would seem to him that the alderman ot the ward 'inter ested would certainly be called opon to pjsh the matter. Aid. Maucker, who has stuck bj the people bravely in this lirht, replied that he had been asked by many property holders alonjf First avenue to push the improvement. "And it is not likely that anyone would seek the support of an alderman on a measure be had recorded liinuoif as op. posrd to without regard to the leeiing of his constituents,'" conclud ed Aid. Manuker. Aud Mayor Knox let no opening pass wherein he could register a knock against any progressive move ment in tho levee improvement mat ter. II actually pleaded with the aldermen iu a couple of instances, to let it drop for awhile. While the mayor has a right t.i an opinion as well as any other ofliuer, he should not let his personal feelings get the up per band of him, as it is very appar ent is the case on the levee question. Can lee Once More. Finally the question as to whether 12,00;) be appropriated for the levee improvement was put to a vote which resulted in another victory n io t. This much settled. Aid. Pender in quired if it would not be wie to tiave a meeting of tne general com mittee in charge of the First avenue iiuestious and bring the matter to a focus. Aid. Maucker paid it was es timated that it would ccst about -'5.000 to make the proposed im provements, j-.acn ol tne railroad companies the K. I. & P., C, IS. & Q. and Terminal company had been counted upon for and appropriation of $5,000 apiece and the Ferry com pany fz.ooo, whicu with the city's appropriation of f 2,000 would make enough. Then Aid. Pender sug gested a meeting ol tne general com mittee for tonight. Mayor Knox said he was agreeable. lie asked the nty attorney, who is one of the com mittee, if he could he in attendance. "No," he replied with an air of frankness, "1 have other matters to attend to which will occupy my time lor at least; a week." So that s the way the matter stands now. The committee also recommended that the appropriations for water works construction and the Twenty- fourth street storm drain be also ex cluded. City Attorney Haas was asked with reference to the storm drain. He replied: "The expense ei tnis improvement will exceed 119,000. The commissioners have assessed $15,000 against the city. A number of people have protested against the amount assessed on their property for the improvement and it is not unlikely that some of them will carry the matter into the courts. In this event it is probable that their assessments will be reduced and the amount added to the city's share. I would recommend th'at no provision be made for this im provement in the appropriations, if the storm drain is gone ahead with the city can declare an emer gency, which justifies the borrowing of money, which our present condi tion will not permit in the absence of such a circumstance." So these appropriations were not considered. Nine hundred dollars was appropri ated for the straightening of Sev enth avenue after a lengthy discus sion. The 12,000 for the ,'evee ap propriation was made up by cnttiog down the street and sidewalk ac counts f 1,000 apiece. nia Iloanr Ioaolted. Mayor Knox is easily worried; .he is very loucny. l be city is indebted to the Bock Island Savings bank. The other day President J. M. Bu- ford, of the bank, bad an interview with the chief executive with refer ence io liquidating the debt. ! don't believe in dealing with men in the manner which Mr. Buford treated rue," said the mayor, in telling the affair to the council. To owe money is not dishonorable. He told me that if the city did not pay the money coming to him he would enjoia it immediately. He actually insulted me. I am in favor of pay ing Mr. Butord in fail if another thing is not dot this year. Pay him up; we can do business some where else." ..Ami the mayor was pretty warm nnder the collar. Aids. Kennedy ana Maucker explained that they both had Seen Mr. Buford with reference to paying the money ' due him on vouchers and he had said that he was willing to accept part of the amount and wait for the balance. They assured the mayor that his ex perience was only one in which every business man had to partici pate occasionally. THE TREE SXtMBLISO BLOCK. Terminal Coirpanj Seek to stand la the War of th Improvement. One development at last night's council meeting was the fact that the Davenport and Ko?k . Island Bridge and Terminal company is at least one potent agency which is seeking to stand in the way of the prnp3sed improvement. It has been self evi dent for some timo that from some source an attempt was being made to delay this much desired pro ject, and while the Terminal company may not yet be alone in this The Akuus is not dUpsid,tu attribute to the other corporations interested the extreme breach of faith that op position . wonld involve. The Ter minal company while feigning to be in sympathy with the undertaking even to the point of pretending to have some resentment that it should not have been permitted to share in the expense of the improvement is nevertheless quietly doing what it can to work the greatest disaster to the enterprise endeavoring to delay. This terminal company, let it be said, has been received with every possible consideration of liberality and public spirit in Hock Island. It received its ordinances with little effort on its part, and has been given every encouragement in the carry ing out of its project. The Terminal company should be encouraged, but it must not attempt any underhanded methodsof throttling public improve ments. In a word all appreciate the Terminal company and desire to see it succeed, but it must act square. To apply slang phraseology, "the city of Rock Island will stand no funny business." COULDN'T WORK DIXON. Stranger Tnts th lie gas Check Racket on the Heron 1 A venae Tailor. Patrick Dixon is congratulating himself over the unsuccessful at tempt of a man to bamboozle him out of some of his hard earned green- oacKs on tne oogus cnecic racket yes terday afternoon. Mr. Dixon runs a tailoring establishment on Second avenue. He is not very well up in dealing with conlideoce men and is therefore all the more enthusiastic over his good judging qualities. The man with the check came into his place of business accompanied by a friend, who was also unknown to Mr. Dixon. The spokesman, who represented himself as Mr. Benton, an employe of Allen, Myers & Co.. asked to be measured for a suit of clothe3. His form was gone over with the measuring tape and the iigures recoraea. Me attempted to stand Mr. Dixon eft. "No, no, my good man: we don't do business that way," replied the itiior; "yon win nave to make a de posit of at least $10." Then the check was produced. It represented $27 and was endorsed by Alien, Myers & Co. Mr. Dixon said he had not the change, but would try and get it of one of the neighbor ing mercuantj. so te went, a tew doors east and telephoned to Allen, Myers & Co. about the check. His suspicions were confirmed. But when he returned the fellows had fl wn. "I'm the smoothest atticle that ever landed," said the good Patrick in explaining the affair to some friends. Death of Mm.

Mayor Vollmer, of Davenport, has vetoed the resolutions recently adopted by the council in that city fixing the rates of ferriage between the two cities and suggested a pro vision for a round trip fare of 6 cents to be used in the same day. Another resolution covering the case was adopted and will be submitted to the ferry company for approval or disap proval.
