Tho sheriff has wired all the large cities
offering a reward of $400.
George Maxwell, a prisoner In the Jail

ment. Ho ? wears that about 8:30 o'clock
on the night of the escape, Utloy, when
ln the corridor, gave him (50, but did not
say for what purpose; that about 10:80
o'clock a man entered his cell, pointed
a pistol at him. and told him to keep
still or he would kill him; that this man
came from outside tho Jail, and had
means of oponlng his cell and Utley's;
that tho man gave Utley keys, with
which to open the Jail doors, and that
Utley did not creep through the hole at
the bottom of the stairway. Tho com?
missioners exonerate Sheriff Marsh and
Deputy Monaghan, and recommend the
temporary suspension of Jailer Pate.
It ls generally believed hero that the
escaped was lond and elborately planned;
that money, of which the prisoner bad
no lack, was freely used, and that he
left this part of tho country, skillfully
disguised and prepared for departure to
Immediately after Utley's flight be?

ding friends good-bye. G-eoge Maxwell,
another negro, who had access to the
corridor opening on the tier of cells In
which Utley was confined, had HO ln
small bills. Neither prisoner would talk.
On the wall of Utley's cell was found
a card with this Inscription: "Lifo Is but
a vapor that vanlsheth away." Lower
down was this postscript; "This gentle?
man ls waiting his time to vanish"?and
There were several sensational rumors
yesterday?one that tho prisoner escaped
last Friday night, and that the matter
had been kept secret; another that tho
other day he received a mysterious pack?
age, supposed to contain keys and other
Implements for effecting this escape.
Deputy Sheriff Monaghan explodes both
theso reports as absolutely false.
Posses were scouring the surrounding
country all yesterday and last night,
and telegrams were sent to tho police

NEW YORK; February <.?Information
from seml-oniclal sources to-day show?
that an alliance or agreement of some
sort has beon entered into between the
Union Paclflo and Southern Pacific Rail?
ways on the one hand, and the Rock

Just what stogo the negotiations have
reached or the character of the alliance
aro matters of conjecture as yet, as none
of tho principals Interested ore willing to
go Into details. Tho matter has been
under ncgoUatlon for somo time, and most
of the Important points have boen agreed
on. An ofliclal announcement la looked

BACKED BY THE BANK.
It Is a matter of common belief in
Wall Street that the parties now lo con?
trol of Hock Island are being backed by
tho First National Bank; In fact, one
or moro officiala of that Institution, In?

are represented in the Rock Island direc?
tory. The First National Is one of the
several so-called Morgan bonks. Kuhn,
Loeb and Company are the fiscal repre?

Rock Island and the leading Pacifies
