BIDS FOR BRIDGE
City Council to Go Ahead With
Rebuilding of South Span
TO FILL IN HAKES CANAL
Which Will Mean a Considerable
The city council at its meeting last
night ordered the invitation of bids
for the reconstruction of the so'hth
bridge over IJock river at Milan. In
the emergency ordinance recently
adopted it was provided that the
south bridge and the one over the
Hakes canal be replaced. In the
meantime Mayor Met'onoehie has
been given permission of the owners
to fill the old canal, thereby insuring
a considerable saving to the munici
pality. The south bridge can be re
newed for about $10,000. The purpose
of the city is to eventually recon
struct all the bridges, so as to permit
of the passage of the electric cars of
the Tri-C'ity IJailway company, and to
be prepared for the reception of in
terurban lines, which are tapping all
the cities about IJock Island, but have
so far been unable to get in here. All
appreciate the value of intcrurban
street car communication, and the
council should not allow the grass to
grow under its feet by delaying the
reconstruction of the Milan bridges.
The council turned down a resolu
tion offered by Aid. Kobbins for the
reconsideration of a former action or
dering the Central I'nion Telephone
company to remove poles planted on
Fourteenth street. City Attorney
Scott, when called on for an opinion,
stated recognition of the company
now might be used as a prevention of
the execution of the council's ordi
nance in revoking the franchise of
the company. So the poles must come

The petition of the Moline Stone
company for permission to cut

Property holders have entered objec

to grant the request, providing the
city is protected by bond and other
wise in case of damage suits. The city
attorney was accordingly instructed
to draft an ordinance granting the
petition and embodying a clause pro
tecting the city.

Candidate For Republican Nomination for
. Governor to Feel Public Pulse.
Hock Island republicans are primp1
ing for the reception tomorrow of
Col. Frank O. Louden, of Chicago,
who is hot on the trail of Richard
Yates for the nomination for the gov
ernorship of Illinois. 15. 1). Connelly
reveived a telegram from Col. Lowden
last evening stating that he would
spend tomorrow in Kock Island an-
Moline, reaching here about noon and
stopping at the Harper. Col. Lowden
comes merely to get an idea how his
aspirations for gubernatorial honors
are looked upon here. He has the
pole in Moline, where he has the
backing of the Deere faction of the
party. Yates never was strong in the
running in Moline. In Kock Island as
yet sentiment as to a republican can
didate for governor has not. crystalliz
ed. The Yates office holders and fol
lowers are working quietly, but thej
have been unable to awaken any on
thusiasm over their candidate.
It is conceded by the wiseacres that
the republican nomination lies be
tween Yates and Lowden. The for
mer's main strength lies in Cook conn
tv, while Yates is depending chiefly
on his appointees throughout the
state to roll up the required number
of state convention delegates.

LOT WAS HATCHED
A Georgia veteran who was confin
ed in the yankee prison located on
Rock Island, where the magnificent
United States arsenal now stands,
tells the following story to an Ot
tumwa (Iowa) man, of a .plot that
was hatched by the prisoners:
He had, he said, been a prisoner in
Rock Island penitentiary, having been
captured with a number of others
during the later years of the war.
While there he and some ten other
daring and determined men entered
into a plot to kill their guard and
effect their escape from what he de
scribed as a death trap of disease,
squalor and poor food. Realizing
that they had a great distance t-o
travel before reaching confederate
lines, it was plain to them that they
could not employ any code or pass
words, as this might result in their
discovery. Thev decided therefore
upon the adoption of some unm'stak-
ible mark or object by means of
which they could recognize one an
other after gaining the outer walls
ind starting south It was their in
tention to scatter immediately after
leaving the prison, and the object of
this badge was to enable them to
recognize each other with certainty
in case they met after their escape.
The matter at first seemed difficult.
but by good fortune there happened
to be one of their number who had a
lecided turn for carving and who had
made a great many trinkets, such as
scarf pins and cuff buttons, out of a
peculiar variety of mussel shell found
in the waters about the island, many
of which he. had given to the prison
officials and guards. It -was decided
that he should make a set of buttons
which could be worn as a watch
charm or pins, and bearing five or six
letters signifing certain things
known only to the conspirators, but
which could be readily interpreted to
mean something else of a pious and
lofty nature in case they were ques
tioned by prison guards or those
whom they expected to meet when
they escaped. The guards, being ac
customed to seeing him at work on
such objects, paid no attention to this
enterprise, and he soon had each
member of the band supplied.
Everything was in readiness and the
plot was ready for execution when.
the day following the date he finished
the last button, the news arrived that
the war was at an end and that the
men would be released as fast as thev
could be paroled. Thus ended the
The veteran said that since the war
he had attended many reunions, where
lie had always displayed this button,
but that on one occasion only had he
ever met any of his old comrades and
fellow conspirators, who, recognizing
the button, greeted him accordingly.
He also said that he believed this but
ton was the only one in existence, the
others having been either lost or de
stroyed or thrown away. He was sav
