Merchants Lend Support to New
Bridge Over Rock River
in Upper End.
TWO COUNTIES TO PAY FOR IT
Increase in Taxation Would Scarcely
be Noticeable Arrangements
for the Danqdet.
Ilenewed impetus was piven the
movement to construct a bridge
r.cross Hock river in the neighbor
hood f Cleveland ferry to connect
Hook Island and Iltnry counties at
t!;e meeiinp of the Tlet.lil Merchants'
association last evening. The project
in the form of a petition has been
before the ' boards of supervisors of
both counties, but sufficient pressure
has not been brought to bear to in
duce the counties to not jointly.
Each ' board, ' after a discussion,
agree I that it was 'a hip; and expen
sive undertaking, when in reality, it
is Mated by those who have pone
thoroughly into the question, the cost
would be comparatively lig"ht when
cut in two and divided between the
counties. The farmers on both sides
of the river at that point are anxious
for the bridge. The preatest benefit
would accrue to the business com
munities of Hock Island and Moline.
Tl.e Ho k Island county board should
revive the project at its next meetinp.
The petition adopted by the mer
chants last evet.inp is as follows:
The undi iv ipneil. citizens of said
Hock r.'lqnd county, respectfully and
earnestly petition you to order, in ac
cordance with the provisions of the
statutes of our state, the building of
a wagon bridge across Hock river at
the ioint crossing to the northwest
corner of Henry county, that, in your
judpnicnt and in the judgment of the
honorable board of supervisors of
Henry county, Illinois, would best ac
commodate the h.rpest number of cit
izens t ravelin?' between the two coun
ties, said bridpe to span the river
either at Colona ferrv or at Cleveland
ferry, or at the intermediate point,
viz.: between TSarstow and the Co
lona sandstone quarries below the ('.,
I!. - Q. railway bridpe.
Tax Iiioreane Small.
We rc pect 1 til'y 'suggest that the
cost of such a bridge to the larpe pop
ulation of the two counties would lie
so small that it world not noticeably
increase their taxes; that the present
private ferries not only consume much
lime of the traejinp public, but also
there are weeks every fall and spring
tint the river i an impassable har
rier to travel; that such a thorouph
f.;r.' Wfinlc be worthy f the people

would be expected to pruv 'do
for t hcine!v cs. We submit herewith

locations suggested. For the con
struction of such a bridpe as soon as
possible your petitioners do humbly
and hit pray.
Hock river forms the northern boun
dary between Ilcnrv county and lloek
I.-.lar.d county for the entire distance
of 2'.i miles. There is no wapon bridpe
coiipectinp IJook Island and Henry
counties. '1 he nearest are the povern
ment bridpe, f:iir miles south of Mo
line, and the Erie bridpe. J6 miles
northeast i f Moline.

In the summer season, when the
wind decs not blow too hard. Hock
river can be crossed at Colona ferry,
nine miles east of Moline. and at
Cleveland ferry. V2V-. miles and a lit
tle north of east from Moline. The
point that would accommodate the
most people in Henry county nearest
the cities of Hock Island and Moline.
is near Harstoxv and Colona sandstone
quarries, a quarter of a mile below
the C. 15. & i). railway bridpe, nine
and one-half miles east of Moline. A
bridpe lure would make the distance
from Colona to Moline about the same
as by way of Colona ferry, and it
would make the distance from Cleve
land to Moline one-half mile less than
by way of Cleveland ferry.
All people residing in Henry county
! three and one-half miles east of the
west li-.e of the county are nearer the
business center of Moline by way of
a bridpe at I'arstow or Colona ferry
than by way of the government

CLEARS A MYSTERY
Murder at Muscatine in 1896
. - . . . " r '
Solved by. uomession
of a Suicide.
OFFICER NIEBERT THE VICTIlrl
Patrick McGrath, III Slayer, Takes
t Own L.lfe in a Lionely
Kansas City. Mo., March 20. This
is to certify that I am the man who
shot Policeman Xeibert at Muscatine.
Iowa, in the summer of 1S9G. Said
Xeibert was the cause of Ihe breaking
up of my family. That is the reason
I shot him. My belief is that 1 was
justified in doing so, and I think that
it was my duty. I left Muscatine.
Iowa, at the water tank. My object
in making this confession is to cause
the release of any ' 'innocent ' persons
who may have been convicted of same.
I have been desperate ever since. I
shot three odioors once for attempt
ing to arrest me on suspicion. Noxv
I feel satisfied to commit myself.

The foregoing letter was taken
from the body of a dead man who
xv as found lying in the little church,
at Six Mile, near Kansas City. Kans..
yesterday. The written confession,
with a bullet hole in the dead man's
forehead, seems to indicate that the
man had taken his oxxn life after he
had shot and probably killed three
oHicers. and had been a fugitive from
justice for more than seven years.
Mctirath's body was King in the
middle of the church, the face turned
towards the ceiling, and beside the
body near the right hand was a 3s-

were loaded except one. which con

were found an open bible and a lamp.
