TOWER OPEN8 TONIGHT. it the Powalar Bi assort mm the Mew Iaa. The nmmer teaion at Black Hawk Watch Tower opens tonight with aa entertainment by the Schiller Vaode- vllle eompanr and a concert by the Watch Tower band. An attraction will be the new inn, which is practi cally finished, at all eenU ia ready for the enjoyment of the pub lic, ana Manager ucnagn announces that It will be entirely completed In a weea or iu a ays. ine new bowl' in? alley, east of the inn; the new toboggan slide, etc, are among the featnres that will attract and share the pnblic attention, The inn is a prettier building than the one that was destroyed by fire the dsy before the Fourth last year, It is more artistic in its general de sign, is attractive from every point 01 view, it sets dscr inrtner irom the brow of the hill, and in general aestgn oners comforts and advan tages that the other did not. One of the best features is the broad veran das which surround the building, extending along every side, so that one can seek the shade at any time of the day. They are broader and cooler than before, for the roof ex. tends out to cover them, thus ad ding to the comfortable and inviting appearance of the place. Inside the inn is highly ornamented, as well as commodious. It is accessible .to the carriage way apart from the nu merous entrances about the grounds on all sides, including one on the south, which was not provided be fore. Broad stairways extend from the first floor to the floor above, and to the dance hall. People going to the dance hall or to the balconies will not pass through the dining hall, which will be greatly appreciated. Arrangements lor ab solute privacy lor small or even large supper parties have been made along the east side ol the dining halL inere are partitions by whioh part of the hall can be cnt off from the remainder, and this can be sab divided into still smaller rooms. Card, supper or other little gather tags can be ne neid bera more pleas antly than ever. The kitchen is large, and there is a dressing room for the ladies on each floor for nse when there are parties or at other times when desired. The building is, in a word, a model in all respects, an ideal sammer place which must prove a source of pride and joy to all the people of the tnree cities to wnom it ts aeateatea being intended for the use and com' fort of all classes of patrons of the roaa. rreePUie.

The city cduaoll heard an ordinance last evening making it unlawful for anyone under the age of 15 to be ont after 9 o'clock at night from March 1 to Sept. SO, or alter 8 o'clock Irom uot. 1 to the last of February inclusive of each year, without a chaperon, unless sufficient cause be shown why a person should be upon tne street alter tne nour stipulated. The officers are in structed to prosecute ail violators, who shall be fined as high aa tlO for each offense. It also provides that it shall be unlawful for any parent. guardian or other person having the legal care or custody 01 cniidren un der 16 years of ago to allow them to go or be upon any of the streets. alleys or putnic plsces In said city within the time prohibited, unless there exists a reasonable necessity therefor. Any person violating the provisions 01 this section snail on conviction be fined in anv aum not to exceed $25 for each offense. Aid. Kennedy took exception to a olanse of the ordinance, and it was laid over until tne next meeting lor ac tion. The mayor nominated as one of the additional patrolmen Alfred Coyne, who was unanimously con- nrmed. The council concurred in a resolu tion adopted by the Merchants Mu tual Protective association, request- tne citizens 01 nock island to 00 t erve July 6 as Independence day. wnich, according to tne calendar. falls on Sunday this year. Davea port will do likewise. tore laaavowaaaeats Iris en ass d. After the annual appropriation ordinance bad been read Aid. Win' ter stated that the amount set aside for waterworks construction was about 91.000 shy. Such an amount was ordered taken from the conting ent tend and added to the water works construction appropriation Aid. Nelson wanted $1,000 set aside for the paving of Thirtieth street Aid. Winter could not see the necessity of giving over a large amount ol money to this locality wnen tbe street could be improved plentv good enough for a few hun dred dollars. He said there were other portions of the city much worse off as to improvements. Aid. Mauck- er stated that he understood the property holders on Thirtieth street had a remonstrance against the im provement. He did not favor doiog anything up there as long as tne peo pie were not favorable, ne consid ered a wiser plan for the city to im prove its water system, which was demanded by the whole oommunity, and drop irom consideration, tern poraruy at least, soma of the less 1m portent requests. Aid. Wheelan be lleved the upper end of the city was just as well entitled to a good inlet as other localities. He believed the council could set aside a sum and whether the atreet should be im proved was a question for after con sideration. Tbe ayes and nays were called for on Aid. Nelson's motion that $4,000 be set aside for the improve ment of Thirtieth street and It carried 9 to 5. Aid. Kennedy made a talk for the improvement of Seventh avenue from Twenty-third to Thirt ieth street, and the council set aside $3,000 for this purpose. In discussing aa ordinance for the improvement of Seventh avenue from Twelfth street to Seventeenth street Aid. Aenneay presented an amendment that eight hours be stip ulated aa a legal working a ay lor tbe men employed on tne 10b. Aid, Maucker said he felt that there was a question whether the city could say now many boars a con tractor shall work his men. He was in favor of an 8-hour working day all right, but he did not want the city to get tangled up in something on which it was not thoroughly en' lightened. City Attorney Marshall was of the opinion that Aid. Mauck er's point was well taken, but he would desire further time before giving a definite opinion on the mat ter, bo the ordinance was laid over, Mayor S- F. Smith, of Davenport, was presenti He was introduced just before adjournment. He said that he came over to learn something and not to attempt to enlighten the municipal fathers on this side of the river. He spoke highly of the manner which the Bock Island council transacted business and complimented Mayor Medill as a presiding officer. He told of seeing two 01 the aldermen from here in Davenport a short time ago. They were .walking with a policeman mayor emith was-somewhat appre hensive about them, and 'inquired of tae c nicer afterward wtetner tney reached home all right, and he was informed that tha blue coat saw them start across the bridge- 80 he guessed they landed safely in Illinois, He said Daveapert,ws always opea to Bock Island's city council.

All tha serv ices thus far have been largely at tended, and marked with increasing interest. At a o'clock yesterday afternoon the Baptist church was comfortably filled, and at 7:30 last evening, a crowd assembled that taxed the capacity of the Central Presbyterian charch. Mr. Ostrom spoke last night from the text: "Am I My Brother's Keeper P" He said the curse of tha age was tha Cain spirit. It had invaded society, dom inated business, crept into the home and was even to be found in the church. The mission of christian ity, said Mr. Ostrom. wss to help tne woria to get rid 01 tne uam spirit, by implanting in its stead the unnst spirit, to get into the heart of society, 01 business life, 01 the church the spirit of love-instead of hate. Air. ustrom is a speaker of ex traordinary power and earnestness In his fiery seal he reminds one more of Moody than of any other modern evangelist, though his discourses bear evidence of a thought and cul ture often painfully absent in Mr, Moody'a deliverance. He is direct. fluent, aad earnest in his manner, fearless in his condemnation of ain, yet withal tender and sympathetic in his presentation of the love of the gospel, lie believes in conversion, radical conversion, not through manipulation of a congregation hion evangelists often use, but through the divine message of the gospel. He is a man of great faith and bis hearers are speedily con vincd that he speaks out of the full ness 01 his convictions. Mr. Hillis. the singer, is endowed with a powerful barytone voice which is able to carry the message 01 tne gospel with power to the coa victions. under bis leadership cnoir and congregation aing as they never sang beiore the gospel songs which have been our household mel odles for nearly a generation. The meeting this evening will again be held in the Central Presbyterian church; tomorrow at S p m. in tbe Baptist church. Hirer Bhysata. The B. Hershey and J. W.
