Mayor Medill Pays S5.OO0 For the Aban donment of the Locomotive Building and Receives a Portion of the Company's Contribution Toward the Great River Front Improvement. Mayor Medill yesterday received from Vice President II. S. Cable a check for $2,000. a portion of the Hock Island & Peoria Railway com pany's contribution toward the levee improvement. The executive first paid over to the company $.3,000, the price agreed upon by ordinance for its round house property at the foot of Fifteenth street, which lies in the line of the right of way of the Termi nal company, and which is to lie cleared to permit of the laying of tracks. Thereupon Mr. Cable handed the mayor the $2,000, as a part of his company s airrced contribution, to the levee. First Sulwtantial Evidence. This act on the part of the Peoria is the nrst substantial evidence of good faifch on the part of anv corpora tion enjoying rights on the river front toward its substantial improvement. There have leen promises and assur ances until they made the city's head swim, but, the Peoria in planking down $2,000 as a portion of its con tribution lias been the tirst to aid the city in making actual headway. flavor Aleilill is after the levee with all the earnestness he possesses. He has secured the advantage of the scientific cooperation of Mayor Baker, of Davenport, who being an engineer of unexcelled capacity, will prove of great service to the city, and in a day or two he will go over the portion 01 the river Iront contemplated in the improvement with Mayor Medill. Aided bv the suirrrestions thus to be gained, and the surveys already made, the mayor will be enabled to reach a speedy solution of the most practica ble and economical disimsition of the project, on which operations will be gin iwuuii uie next month.

Rock i Island ANOTHER STRIKE OH Teamsters and Diggers at the Reservoir Throw Up Their Jobs. THEY ASK TO WORK TEN HOURS. Not Being Coatent With the Wage They Are Now Making I nrreane In Time Not Permimable ("nder the Terms of the Contract A Perplexing Problem Which Is Feared Will Came Seriou Delay. Operations at the reservoir" site are again at a standstill, and despite the efforts of the administration to effect an adjustment of the troubles it is feared the differences between the contractors and the laborers will re sult in the defeat of the intention to have the plant completed and in operation liefore winter. lhe teamsters and diggers have now joined hands in a demand for 10 hours work in order that they can earn ?o and fi.au per day respect ively. They have laid down their tools and refused to resume work un til matters are arranged o thev can earn the wages mentioned. There is a provision in the contract which the Seunott Company has with the city that says eight hours shall constitute a day's work. Hence the demand of the men cannot lie granted without violating this contract uu less the council should annul the pro. vi so. Mayor Medill is verv much vexed over the situation. He has done everything in his power, with the as sistance of the council, to guard the interests of all concerned, and to avert friction in connection with this great improvement to which he has (levoieti considerable time, anil for which the taxpayers are contributing a large amount of money iu order that they and future generations might have clear, pure and hvalth v water. Ho saul today that he was at a loss to know what to do. It is a perplexing problem. First the union teamsters struck because the construction company would not pay for eight hours' work. Th. y appealed to the council. A commit tee investigated the matter, but re ported that all that could Ik; done legally was to compel the contractors to employ home labor and work eight Honrs the wage quest ion to be set tled lietwceu employer and employe. It was found that the ruling rate of wage for teams iu other cities was 30 cents an hour. Mr. Scnnott said he was paying this price to the teamsters at the reservoir. If lie could not get Rock Island teamsters, he said he would bo obliged to go out side ior ineni.
