LEVEE IS ACCEPTED.

al Inspection of the
ALL WELL PLEASED WITH IT.
Extension of the Improvement on to
Twentieth Street Favored Contractors
Present Their Clalma, and Revolve Al
lowance Money Expended on the Reser
voir I'p to Date.
Rock Island's levee improvement,
extending from Seventeenth to Nine
teenth streets, was accepted at a
special meeting of the city council
yesterday afteruoon, the mayor and
aldermen having first made a personal
inspection of the work, with which all
were greatly pleased, and its extension
on to Twentieth next season unani
mously favored. The cost of the im
provement aggregates $18,852.72,
something like $5,000 in excess
of the estimate of Engineer Jacob
A. Harnjpj3,a discrepancy due to
the failure ot the Terminal com
pany to keep A promise that it had
mad'e to haul the filling for the levee
gratis, it having been eventually nec
essary to assign this portion of the
job for execution to the Peoria road.
The impression gained currency that
the Peoria wa to do the hauling free
of cost to the municipality, but since
the company had made contribution
of $2,000 toward the improvement it
was not expected that it would do the
work without remuneration.
Mr. Blair, when quizzed at a recent
council session in regard to the mat
ter, said the Terminal company bad
intended to do the hauling, as prom
ised, gratis, but finding the job had
been undertaken bv the Teoria, had
abandoned the plan, leaving the un
derstanding that his corporation was
therefore released from any obligation
in connection with assistance toward
the levee. The result was the city
was compelled to pay 40 instead of lb
cents per yard for the tilling.
The Edwards & Walsh Construction
company and Flick & Johnson were
the contractors on the improvement.
the claim of the former for the riprap-
ping, paving, etc., being fl2.S-lb.4l,
and of the latter for the tilling.
$6,106.01. Partial payment of each
account was ordered. The city has
on hand in levee funds f'.,500. $5,X0
of which was appropriated bv the
council. $2,500 by the Davenport &
Rock Island Ferrv cjmpanv and
$2,000 bv the Rock Island & Peori;
Railway company. Strange as it may
seem, the two corporations that en
deavored to use the levee lor track
purposes, have as yet not been heard
from satisfactory in relation to do
natio'; toward tl e improvement, and
the committee of aldermen, which has
twice called on botli corporations, was
instructed to make further efforts to
secure the money.
hile the aldermen were inspect
ing the improvement, a suggestion
was made bv Vice President II. S.
Cable, of the Peoria, that meets with
the approval of the council. It was
to the effect that the extension of the
pavement to the north track would
endanger switchmen in the pursu
ance of their duties, and he agreed to
have a 4-foot space along the outside
of the rail tilled with cinders, well
tamped and evenly graded.
Up to date $67,026.70 has beeu
pended on the reservoir, which
be completed in the spring, liie
tal amount appropriated for this
provement is $104.UOfi.02.
Ihe council will inspect the
electric light tower in the west end of
the city Monday night.
