The plant was first used ia the publication of the Morrison Independent, which came into ex- istance in 1872. The paper was edited for a while by J. W.

Booth A Co , who changed its namo to the Morrison Times, arid published it at'Morrison until 1870, when they ru- moved the ollice to Rock Falls, and named the paper the Whiteaide Times. The office was afterwards moved to Sterling and the paper called the Sterling Blade. A daily was also issued, and the firm did a large business. Afterwards, so great was the competition, the firm discontinued business, and a few years ago the plant was purchased by J\!r. Champlin.TVho started the Rock River Express, a prohibition organ, the publication of which was discontinued a few weeks ago.

Uniformed police will not only be an ornament to our streets, but when an officer is wanted, he can be found easily by his "uniform:,—The -ordldance- should be r at the next meeting. The street Improvement at Spring Creek on east 4th street came up for dsscus- slon. The stone culvert has been removed and a large pipe culvert put in; the street Las been widened and macadamized. The hill west of the culvert has been partly leveled, about three feet being cut off in some places. On the whole, the job is going to be a good one, and although the grade at the cut Is lower than was supposed,' the improvement .will be satisfactory, it is hoped, when completed. The cost is more than was at first expected, but the work will be continued until completed. Mayor Lawrence read a re port of the finances of the city available for street purposes, showing that there Is very little money in sight for that kind of permanent improvements, and recommended that the council consider the matter seriously. The matter was not discussed last night, >ut will be brought up at a meeting in he near future. 'I'here are street im- irovements that must be made for the he street railway, and there are other treeta-of-tb& -city .—leading _ tojaain ountry roads, that need macadamizing >adly. It is thought by some that it will be necessary to bond the city, for a small amount to prosecute the work. The 1st avenue sidewalk question was also brought up. The 15 days given by the ordinance, for the property owners to build their own walks, expires today, so the walks will be built by the city. It Is said the majority of the property owners desire it to be done in ;hat way. The city now will go through the legal requirements of ascertaining the value of the proposed Improvement, filing a petition with the county court to appoint commissioners to assess the value to each property owner, advertise lor blda, etc. Toe council will hold a meeting on Friday evening af7:30 totake action in the matter. The property owners are desirous of having the walks built na noou as possible.
