The disconsolate proprietors of the greenback-republican . organs adopted a new scheme to secure the city printing last night, which met with the same fate as their former efforts this year it died aborin'. It was in the shape of a peti tion from the "Twin City Typographical Union," which organization, to all out ward appearances, was "spawned" for the occasion . Although we have seen no notice of such an organization being formed, nor does the directory contain its name among the different socities, we will not question its existence, however, as the Daily Union appears to be its chaperon. The Tomehtri' IniUtute. The following new names have been added to the register at the county nor mal since our last report: Vashli Hardy, Maggie Miller, Erwin Hayes, Allie Ziegs ler and Annie Bailey. The work is pro grossing satisfactorily, and several visit ors were present yesterday afternoon and this morning. This morning Superinten dent Kemble read an interesting paper on "Matter and Methods of United States History." This afternoon the class botany have gone to Port Byron junction with Prof. Harper for the purpose of se curing specimens for analysis. The insti tute closes this week. Poliet Points- Last evening Officer Cary arrested four young men for bathing in Sylvan water near the C, R. I. & P. round house They were taken before Magistrate Ben nett and fined $1 and costs each. It is to be hoped that the punishment of these will be sufficient to check a repetition of the indecent episode. This morning Daniel Moriaty was ar rested for barratry by Marshal Eckhart it seems that last evening, two young men got into a fight in Rodman's pasture and Moriarty, who is a brother of one of thorn, incited the fierceness of the affair by encouraging his brother on. Hence his arrest. He will have a bearing before Justice Cooke this evening. Last night Sheriff Reticker and Deputy Silvia went to Moline and pulled the no torious house of ill repute run by Martha Nelson. Sarah Nelson, Carrie Wells and Peter Peterson were arrested for being Inmates. Ai an eany nour Sunday morning Special Policeman Dunkcr found the front door of Baker's jewelry store on Second avenue unlocked, in which con dition it had probably remained all night. Mr. Dunker went to Mr. Baker's house 2312 Fifth avenue, and told him of the condition of the place, which resulted in the store being locked. This is the sec ond time within ten days that the police man who waa not efficient enough for public service, has protected private prop ertyin the night time. ' WORK WELL DONE. The Council Hold a Creditable Meet Iny The Abattoir Decided Upoa Other Matters or Public Interest. Last evening's adjourned meeting of the city council was one of the most creditable, as far as public affairs are con cerned, that has been held during the present municipal year. The most im portant matter disposed of was that of THE ABATTOIR, which was brought up by Alderman Lar- kin, who moved that ste ps be taken for its erection. Alderman Schroeder object ed from the standpoint that the butchers of the city were desirous of erecting one at no expense to the city, lie thought the plan proposed was throwing money away, and that $6,000 was too much to expend for such a purpose. He wanted more thorough investigation made before proceeding in the case. Alderman Cav- anaugh then stated the following as the actual expenditures in erecting the build1 ingand putting it in readiness for use: building, $3,500; filling, 1500; sheds, $800; roads, $1,000. In urging the ne cessity of an abattoir, the alderman con tended that the health of the city was more to the public than the taxes they paid and the people demanded a place where pure and wholesome meat could be procured. Alderman Schroeder still ob jected on the ground of expenditure. Alderman Collins thought it was not a mat'.er of investment, but a move looking to the public health which should be con sidered first. Alderman Lark ins then of fered a resolution to the effect that the mayor and health commissioner and be empowered to proceed in the erection of the abattoir. Alder man Sinnet, who had been undecided the matter on the question of ex pense, said he was now in favor of the abattoir, which statement was received with applause from the audience. The question was put and carried 8 to 5. The work will consequently be commenced mmediately. on the plans already given in these columns. THE DUMPING 6K0CND. Mr. Fred Hass was present and ail Iressed the council, remonstrating against the location of the dumping grounds at the foot of Fourteenth street. He said the people along First avenue were de termined that the nuisance should lie abated ; he asked the council to see that such was done, and if then prayers were not granted they would demand it. May or Murdork said there would be but little offal to dispose of there in the future, and attempted in this way to avoid giv ing the matter attention. He seemed disposed to display his usual domineering spirit, but Mr. Hass was determined, as he was jus tified in being, and insisted upon imme diate action. It was then determined, to remove the dumping place to the lower end of the city. . STREET BLOCKADE BEHOVED. A petition was read asking the council to forbid the Chicago. Burlington Quincy railroad company from blocking up the foot of Seventeenth and Sixteenth streets, and on motion of Aid. Henry the clerk was directed to notify the railroad company to stand no cars in such a way as to either blockade the street or shut off view from the river. PRIVATE SEWER. It was formally decided to grant the petition for the private sewer along Nine teentn street, ana an ordinance was en acted similar to other sewer ordinances, the city agreeing to attend to its part of the contract if the petitioners carried out their plans in conformance thereof. THE mtHTING. The satelites of the greenback republi can adminisiration made another futile attempt to secure some official patronage for their organs. It is quite amusing to witness the contortions indulged in by the editors of the humpbacked gutter snipe and the isolated old man since the couns cil gave the Abgus the exclusive privilege to publish their proceedings. They it were who concocted the scheme to capture the city government last spring, and estab liata a kankaroo administration to the dis gust of honest republicans. When Mr Murdoch's election was announced and the subordinate positions filled by their henchmen, irrespective of qualifications, these worthies chuckled over their shrewdness. But now they sing a differ ent tune. What care they for the posi tions of superintendent of waterworks, street commissioner, chief of police, etc, without their share of the official patron age? It is sad to think of, and as much as the mayor and a few of the aldermen wish to lend them a helping hand, the majority ot the aldermen say ''rib." For our part it matters not whether the other papers are authorized to print the proceedings or not. The compensation is the same whether one paper is selected or four. The city is the only one benefited by the present method. Alderman Cav anaugh 's motion to make the four city papers "official" was defeated by an amendment of Alderman Henry, who be lieves in guarding the city's treasury as much as possible. Bunaways. The upper end is reveling in the costly and painful experience of runaways. Fri day last Miss Emma Coe, of-Coe town ship, drove to Port Byion to meet a lady friend coming from Lyons. On the re turn trip her horse was frightened by flock of sheep scampering across the road, and turning quickly to- one side, threw the ladies to the ground. Both were more or less injured, but Miss Cole quite seriously. She was unconscious for some time. , Mr. Thos. Quick and wife, of Hills dale, were subjected to like treatment on Saturday. They were returning home from Hillsdale, when passing the rest dence of Mr. James Camp, the horses they were driving became imbued with "git up and git" spirit, and it was only few seconds before Mr. and Mrs. Quick were lyine prostrate on the ground. Their injuries were more painful- than severe, There are 250 disabled ex -confederate soldiers in the poor houses of North Car olina. T TWO SIDES OF IT. The Telephone S amber System Agi tatedViews of a Subscriber and More Words from the Man agement. , JUSTICE TALKS. Rock Island, July 13, 1S85. Editor Abgus: In your issue of the 11th inst, I notice a communication from IL Louderback, Vice President ot the Central Union Telephone company, in which be makes a very weak attempt to justify their ridiculous order that sub scribers must call by number instead oi by name. He enumerates what he face tiously calls "three advantages secured by the subscribers as well as the compa pany" if this rule be carried out. He says: "in the first place, it a party desires to talk with another party while others are-present, on business, by sim ply calling for the number of the party desired, it renders it impossible for the other parties to know with whom you are transacting vour business." Suppose we please Mr. Louderback by admitting that such is the case. I still claim that the rule would be unnecessary and uncalled for, as, when such a contin gency arose (which might be once in a hundred times) he could call bv number if he wanted to. If be chooses to dis close the name of the party with whom he wishes to converse, well and good, it is none of the company s business; if not, then let him call by number as he has a right to do. And right here I will hazard the assertion that the operators them selves would be as well satisfied with names as with numbers. He say 8: "Secondly, it also avoids the frequent mistakes that are occasioned by operators in a busy office not distinguish ing the name of the parties called for cor rectly and giving you the wrong party." That is just where Mr. Louderback is la boring under a mistake. A number is more likely to be misunderstood than a name, and I call upon the operators themselves to verify the statement, and also think the other subscribers will bear me out in saying that it has been much more difficult and taken longer to "get anybody since the adoption of the mini ber rule than it was before. Continuing, he says: "Thirdly, by each subscriber having a small card placed on the top of bis battery box with the names and numbers of the firms and individuals with whom he transacts the most of his business, he will find that the parties whom he needs most will not exceed from ten to fifteen subscribers." How does he know that? The number might exceed fifty for all he knows to the contrary ; but whether it does or whether it doesn't, the telephone company is a little "cheeky" when its asks me to post up a list of names for its accommodation. Neither is their any reason or sense in insisting that I shall use a list or call by number unless I choose to do so for my own in terests. If John Smith has a telephone, and I wish to talk with him, it is my business to call up the central office and leu the operator in a respectful manner what I want, and it is her business to make the connection without any unnec essary delay or foolishness, which latter is just what it amounts to when she in sists on having his number. She knows his number, and it is ber business to know it that is one of the things she is paid fop and I contend that there would be just as much sense in a refusal of our woithy postmaster to put the letters in our postoffice boxes unless every one had the number of the box on it. Mr. Louds erback's statement that the number syss tern tends to prevent strikes among the operators by enabling the company to fill the place of an experienced operator by putting in a green hand, may be true to a certain extent, but I would be ashamed to make such sTtatement as that over my own signature. They thus virtually say to the operators every time they tighten down the screws, "If you don't like it, pack up your duds and get! We don't care, as we can put another girl in your place tomorrow." The fact that she has never seen a switch board or been inside the office don't make any dif ference, for the subscribers are obliged to call by number and any fool can find a number when she Knows wnat it is. It would not be the first time the telephone company had let a faithful and efficient employe go, much to the detriment of the service, and in di rect opposition to the wishes of nearly or every subscriber to the exchange. But to go back to the vice president oi the hieh and mighty Central Union Teles phone company, tie speaks ot strikes, but I wonder if, in the simplicity of his soul he for a moment supposes that an operator would strike when paid such a munificent salary as the lady operatois of that company get Salary I did 1 say? meant to say pittance, and a beggarly one at that, but still there is some excuse when we consider the extremely low rental we are charged for a telephone. To sum up the whole affair I would say that the tcls ephone company is too much inclined to be arbitrary and bulldozing, and under tne present management the enforcement of the rules and regulations nave oeen at tended with the display of so much of the "smart Aleck that subscribers have gen erally become sick and disgusted, so much so that scores would have peremptorily ordered the immediate removal of their telephones if they could have well spared them, and the company well deserve to lose all its subscribers unless a radical chance is at once made. In conclusion 1 would say that Mr. Louderback will have to talk very much "louder back" or "back louder" than he has before he convinces the subscribers to the telephone exchange in Rock Island that he knows better what they want than they do themselves. Justice, the vice President's say. Chicago, July 13, 1885. Editor Arods: I have just seen a conv of vour issue of July lllh. 1885, in which you publish my letter. I think if you will take any number in your bead and undertake to find this number in the directory without knowing the name of the subscriber, you will find that it is a Drettv difficult task to do so, and that it would not be such an easy thing for the party who was present and beard you call for the number to ascertain who it was, and it would necessitate his run ning his finger down every number in the book until he came to it, as they do not run consecutively, but are in all parts of the directory, according to the alphabetis cal list of the subscribers. You should bear in mind iff agitating such a subject as you are now on, that the company is now giving the cities of Davenport, Rock Island and Moline facil ities which are not enjoyed by any other similarly situated cities in the United States, viz.: Free service between the three nlaces and at a very low rate for ex chancre service. All hasty and ill advised actions can have but one result, viz: to react on the subscribers who use the in struments, as the company is at present running its business on the lowest possi ble mar&in. You should also not forget the fact that in furnishing telephone service to a very small portion ot the citizens of Rock island, the telephone company at toe same time is protecting the entire busi ness interests of the city by a better fire alarm system than could be furnished by the expenditure of thousands of dollars on the nart of the city in obtaining it, and an annual expenditure of from $3,000 to $5,000 in maintaining the same, at every telephone in the city Is practically a fire alarm station ana neips to protect the property of individuals who have no use for the system themselves. I trust that you will see your way clear to not agitate any hasty or nnwise en actments. We desire to maintain friendly relations not only with our patrons but with the public at large, and are law abid ing citizens. Our superintendents are all away at the present time, but as soon as Assistast General Superintendent Wilson returns he will go to Rock Island fnd see yon personally in regard to this matter. L. 11. LOUDERBACK, Vice President, The Arods presents both sides of the telephone number system, a matter which has been a subject of common discussion for some time past. In replying to a state ment in this paper, the vice president as serts that secret communication might be carried on in the presence of others by means of the number system, without it being possible for those present to know to whom the conversation is addressed, and in order to ascertain with whom com munication was had, if the party pres ent was disposed to know he would be obliged to look through the list. If a per son had the curiosity or a reason for knowing the name of the person or Insti tution connected with, he might readily find out by calling up the central station and ascertaining who or what "such a numlicr is." This is not given however, as an incident to sustain the op position to the number system; it is sim ply a reply to the assertions made by the vice president. As to the advantage of the telephone as a system of fire protec tion, no one will doubt its usefulness in that direction, ordinarily. At the same time every second is a good deal of time when fire is under way, and a house might burn down while the number of an engine or hose house is being hunted up in the directory. THE COUNCIL.

We also wish to call attention to our display of fine Photographic work, all recently produced and containing many novel and pleasing positions and effects of light and shadow, varying in size from a miniature up to 16x20 inches. We have been assured by old and compe tent critics that it is by far the finest display ever made in this city. Our artistic success is largely due to the fsct that we make a greater effort to excel than to undersell, and we bring to our aid such experience as can be gathered from 17 years of continuous service (having begun our Photo graphic career as a mere boy in 1867, since which time we have not lost six months either by sickness or vacation) our long experience enables us to appreciate the importance of scenic effects in Photo art, hence our operat ing room is fitted with a mass of accessories, consisting of stone wall, bal ustrades, stone and rustic bridges and fences, boat, rocks, pond containing water lillies, stairways, screens, and a variety of back-grounds, posing chairs, table statues, vases, or what the Chicago Photo-Bureau says, is uu equalled in any gallery in this vicinity, but We plainly say (aud it is a matter easily demonstrated) that no gallery in this contains one-half of the amount of our instruments; we don't boast that they were bought in a rem nant sale aud used by predecessors for 25 years.
