Discussions Attendant Upon the
The Police Patrol Wagon to be Equip
ped la Ftr.t-class t jle Street
Railway Matters Other
All the aldermen were present at last
sight's semi-monthly council meeting.
Quite a mass of business was disposed
of, but it was not all of particular im
portance. The council showed a proper realize
tioa of the needs of the day by authorize
iog tbe police committee and chief of po
lice to dispose of the single horse and se
cure a double team for tbe patrol wagon,
ami also to make such changes as may
seem proper on the stable for the accom
modation of two horses instead of one.
The petition of the Davenport & Rock
Island street railway company to aban
don its Ninth street line south of Fourth
avenue was brought up by Aid. Eennedy.
chairman of the street and alley commit
tee, to whom it was referred, who stated
thut he was first opposed to granting the
petition, but that since the last meeting
he had been over the ground and was
satisfied this branch of the system was
not paying the company, and that there
fore it should not be forced to maintain
it. He therefore submitted a minority
report in favor of granting the petition .
Tbe other two members of the committee.
Aids. Bladel and Adams, presented a ma
jority report that the petition
be not granted, and Aid. Adams
made a speech in support ot his report
holding that while be was not opposed to
tbe syndicate he believed it bad not shown
proper respect to the council's requests
about planking certain portions of its
tracks to enable vehicles to get in and
out, be therefore was opposed to show
ing tbe syndicate any favors. He favored
retaliation in so far as that tbe council
ougbt to cease to have anything to do
with a company that ignored the council's
"William Jackson asked permission to
say a word ia'beh&'f of tbe company and
on motion of Alderman Adarcs be was
given tbe floor. Mr. Jackson thought
the council ought to permit the company
t j rid itself of a burdensome part of its
system. Tbe city ougbt to show the
syndicate all tbe consideration possible,
as it bad done in tbe past. It was com
posed of SO of Chicago's best representa
tive cKizsns, such as Messrs Buckingham,
Mitchell, Walker and Armour and they
hd invested in tbese three cities
fl.4"0,(00 and tbe system as at
present was not yielding them
2 per cent interest on the investment.
Tbe city could not afford to antagonzs
men of this character who had it in their
power to do so much for Hock Island aod
to continue to advance tbe city as they
bad in the past. If they should get dis
gusted with their investments here and
sell it at whatever they could get, it
would be a great blow to the city. Mr.
Jackson did not believe in Mr. A lams'
policy of retaliation. If the council
ordered tbe syndicate to do a thing it
should see that it was obeyed, and then
when the company asked anything reas
onable it shoull be granted.
Aid. Haesing made a speech in favor
of compelling tbe company to keep its
Ninth street line where it is.
Aid. Giiger, Bladel and Johnson spoke
briefly in support of retaining the Ninth
street line as a benefit to tbe people in
that part of tbe city.
Aid. Evans endorsed Aid. Adams' re
marks. Aid. Corken stated that he knew of
business men and other property holders
on Ninth street who wanted tbe line
abandoned, and he belie vid the counc'.l
ougbt to permit the company to take it
Tbe question was put on Aid. Ken
nedy's minority reported aod defeated by
by a vote of 9 to 5 on roll call so the
This so elated Aid. Huesing that he
offered a resolution ordering tbe Rock
Island & Milan road to plans the sides
of both rails from the car barns to the
corner of Seventeenth street and Second
avenue with 2x4 planks. The resolution
was not passed.it is unnecessary to say, but
Wis referred until next meeting.
It is a safe assertion that no other al
derman in the council but Mr. Huesing
sees any reason in such a demand.
That the tracks ought to be
made passable, either by planking at
reasonable distances or by filling to grade
with the tracks, none will deny, but such
exactions as are contained in tbe Huesing
resolution are unfair and ought
not to be seriously considered un
less in a spirit on the part of the council
of pursuing the company and doing it nil
the harm possible in return for all it has
done for Rock Island. The Aegcs be
lieves that outside of the districts paved,
or being paved, if the tracks were filled
properly it would be better than plank
ing, as that soon wears out, and would
not only require constant repairing but
would at times entail more danger than
Earlier in tha proceedings the council
referred the petition of property holders
on Nineteenth street and Sixth avenue to
have the Elm street line changed from
ETthivenue and Twenty-first street to
those thoroughfares. This will come up
at the next meeting and wilt probably
pass, as the proposed change does not
deprive any territory of a street car line,
but merely takes it off two streets where
there is another track within a block, and
putting it back where there are no such
accommodations near. The change de
sired 's very reasonable, and it is for this
reason that The Argus belitves the
council will grant it.
Aid . Bladel offered a resolution with
reference to running cars on the lower
end of the tracks below Fifth street, on
that street and on Fourth to First, as
spoken of in Thu Argc8 the other eve
ning, and which was passed unanimous
ly. The company will be obliged to
rtlay about a half a mile of track there
before the electric cars can run down to
the end, and this will probably be done
aa soon as possible. Then the cars on
both the red and blue lines will alternate
in running to the lower end ot the track.
A'd. Kennedy presented a resolution
aiming at compelling the Brush Electric
Light company to comply with the coun
cil's previous request to remove its tow
ers, daugerous wires, etc. If the council
was going for corporations for not obey
ing its mandates, it might ss well go for
all including the electric light, telegraph,
telephone companies, etc., so the alder
man held, and his resolution was referred
for future action.
Ex-Aldermen Larkin, Howard and Ohl
weiler graced the council by their pres
ence as spectators.
Alderman Evans had one of his ora
torical attacks and got through the eve
ning nicely, handling many of the most
momentous questions which came up for
consideration in a manner that would
have done credit to a Gladstone or a
Bismarck, but he did cause a ripple of
merriment when in finishing one of his
bursts of eloque'nee he stid with 8.1 seri
ousness, "and I tell you gentlemen, I
thine Alderman Evans' remarks are sen
sible." It was a slip of tbe longre. Ue
meant Adams, but did not tumble to bis
mistake until the laugh bad gone around
the council chsnibtr.
It is S:U1 tbe council is likely to lose
one of its conspicuous members, that
Alderman Adams thinks seriously of
resigning next fail to go to Chicago and
pursue a course of law study.
The Lnmbernn-n'M Strike.
There are no new developments in tbe
strike at the lower mills.
There was a largely attended meeting
of tbe striking lumber men at Hilier's
ball last evening for tbe purptse of affect
ing an organ zation. George Graves was
elected chairman, and Raiph Patten sec
retary. It was a very enthusiastic meet
ing, a large number taking part in tbe
discussion, and it was unanimously de
cided to retain the position they bad al
ready taken, after which a committee
composed of Rsbert Arp, Hugh McGraw,
Samuel Petersen and Charles Burke was
appointed to confer with tbe firm and see
what could be done. The committee
had a meeting this afternoon, and it is
thought will call upon the proprietors
this eyenicg ir tomorrow morning, and
make knowa their demn1e.
It is rumored that tbe firm has made
the strikers a proposition which it ac
cepted will settle tne difficulty, and that
they are to state this evening whether
they will accept it or not.
An Outraaroas Disgrace.
Supervisor Ludolpb informs The Ar
gus it is tbe intention of tbe county board
to rent the old h03e house, on tbe north
west corner of court house square for
some sort of a business bouse and that
the committee os public expenditures has
the matter in charge. This would be an
outrageous disgrace to the city, as well as
the county, and public spirited peo
ple should protest against any such pro
ceedings, before any such disposition is
made of the property. The only sensi
ble thing tbe board can do with the old
shell is to raze it, and have one less barn
acle on court housj square.
Tbe committee on public expenditures
is composed of Supervisors Woodburn,
Bincett and Ford.
On Their Mnele.
Magistrate H. C. Wivill and Peter
Heverling made the groucd smoke in the
south triangle of Spencer square just be
fore dinner today by running two lawn
mowers across it at such a rate of speed
that they cut the grasB in that triangle in
exactly 15 minutes. Peter looked some
what faded after bis little race with the
magistrate, but the latter just wiped a
few drops of perspiration from bis brow
and moved with measured tread toward
home, where he masticated Lis midday
The Sidney is due down Wednesday.
The Mary Morton is expected up Wednesday.
A bright little son made its appearance
at the home of Joseph Brown and wife
last evening, and the best cigars io be
had in the city are none too good for Joe's
friends today. Tne little stranger has
been given one of those royal receptions
for which tbe happy father is noted.
If there is a happier man in the city
today than William McEniry he has
escaped the observation of The Argds.
He doesn't care now whether the electric
cars run up Elm street or net. and in fact
has no interest in anvthin? ontRiitn th
family circle, where a future president
was born last evening. Mother and son
are getting along nicely.
Another Poaitlon for Trneadale.
Still another position has been found
for W. H. Truesdale, late receiver of the
Minneapolis & St. Louis road. Here is
tbe lateBt dispatch sent out from Minne
apolis with reference to him:
President Finney, of the "Soo" and
South Shore roads, will resign at the
annual meeting omorrow. Mr. Fiuney
practically admitted as much today. It
is considered probable that W. H. Trues
dale will succeed Mr. Finney, wbo gives
as the reason of his resignation the pres
sure of private business interests. In
reality the Canadian Pacific, which owns
the "Soo" atid Soutn Shore, has long
determined that the president and general
manager of the property must be a Min
neapolis man. Mr. Finoey, who is pers
sonally very wealthy, declined to leave
his home in Milwaukee to reside in the
