contract work for the firm of K. P.
Reynolds & Co.. and while there he

- Mr. lowncs was born at Cam
bridge, Mass., March 2. 1829, and at
Farraingham Mass.. Oct. 1, 1851, he
and Miss K. Rice were united in mar
riage. For many years he was mas
ter carpenter at Watertown arsenal
under Gen. Rodman, and he came
under orders from that officer to
Rock Island arsenal in April, 1866.
Rock Island has been his home since.
He served as boss carpenter under
W. M. Channon at the arsenal until
lkc. 20, 1878, when he became iden
tified with the firm of E. P. Reyuolds
& Co., with whom he has been asso
ciated since, with the exception of
the short interval when he served as
superintendent of streets of the city
under Mayor Blauding. While he
was employed at the arsenal he built
the wing dam at the head of the
island, and while in the city's service
he put in the dyke at the lower end
of town, thus sav ing the city from
inundation during high water. He
was an expert in his undertak
ing in the line of construc
tion, industrious and painstaking,
always genial and happy hearid

was to like thoroughly. He was
staunch democrat, and a work
er in the party ranks.

At Spring Valley quiet once more
reigns, and Company A has broken
camp and is home. Capt. h. M.
Cook received orders yesterday from
Governor Altgeld to return home.
but when some of the people of
Spring Valley were made acquainted
with this fact, telegrams began to
tly to Springfield, arking that the
company be left at least three or
four days longer, but the governor
thought all danger of lawless acts
over and ordered the militia home.
Train No. 1, on the Rock Island, due
in Rock Island at 5:10 p. m., pulled
into the Rock Island depot at 5:3'J
last evening. On the train were two
special coaches, containing the Ritles
and their baggage. At the depot the
two coaches were detached and
brought to the R. I. & P. depot,
where l'leuer's band met them and
escorted the soldiers to the armory.
Here someone proposed three
cheers for the boys, and they were
lustily given. Then Captain Cook
proposed three cheers for their Rock
island friends, and these were given
no less heartily.
The boys presented a most war
like appearance as they marched
down Second avenue. J hey were
dusty ana nara looking, it was im
possible for them to get shaved in
the Valley, because they were blue
coats, and some of the faces
were adorned with an 8 days'
hirsute growth. Of course, some
of the society boys were thaved
for the dance which was
given Saturday evening, and they
necessarily put up a pretty appear
ance. Rut for the most part, the
boys looked pretty hard after the
Spring Valley campaign. Nearly
every one of them had in Lis knap
sack some souvenir of the lawless
band, and one of the Rifles brought
home a poster calling the atten
tion of the miners to the fact that
they were all expected to attend the
funeral of one of the miners killed by
the regulars, and signed 'Bv order
of many miners."
Tonight at the Rock Island house
occurs the banquet in honor of the

with a strike on tho North British rail
way, during which much difficulty was
experienced iu finding engineers to keep
