About 2 o'clock this morning Offi
cers Kautz and Bender had a livelv
. ... j
ip.nne wiin iwo fellows near Joe
Ilubcr's saloon, on Fifth avenue. In
catching these two men, the officers
have no doubt landed a couple of
smooth burglars. At the time of their
arrest the men were prowling around
the lluber residence, evidently seek
ing to gain an entrance. Kach of
them had on his person a loaded 32
calibre revolver, which was carried
in an outside overcoat pocket, so
that in case of trouble, a protector
could be drawn very easily. It was
only coming upon the fellows un
awares that saved the officers from
being forced to exchange shots with
them. It was only with the greatest
difficulty, and after a superior man
ful struggle ou the part of
the officers, that the men
were overcome, having had hold
of their pistols, but were grab
bed before being able to get
them out of their pockets. At the
point of their revolvers the officers
managed to get their captors to the
box and call the wagon. Another
suspicious looking fellow giving his
name as John Acton, was also taken
down with thorn, and is supposed to
be used as spotter by the two when
doing their jobs, as he was standing
on the sidewalk outside of the saloon
looking around while his supposed
pals were getting acquainted with the
lay of the land. Ou arriving at po.
lice headquarters the two registered
as Al Donahoo and C. W. Ilitt. Each
had a box of cartridges, while Doia
hoo also had $43. The men had
come to this city from Davenport,
where they claim'they had spent two
days looking for work. Hitt fays he
is a Pullman striker, and Donahoo
claims New York as his home. They
are well-dressed, sleek-looking indi
viduals, and from all appearances
have not done much hard work dur
ing their days.
Information was received from
Davenport this morning that a safe
had been blown ojen over there, ami
something over if 10 taken, during
last night, and it is supposed the
work was done by these fellows, as
the amount in their possession seems
to correspond with that looted from
The Iavenport 8-tfc,
The safe in Knostman & Son's fur
niture store on East, Second street.
Davenport, was the one looted, and
Chief Kessler, accompanied bv Mr.
Knostman, called on Chief Sexton at
noon today to identify the money
found in the possession of Ilitt and
Donahoo. While Mr. Knostman is
not positive that the money is that
taken from his safe. 13 cents in pen
nies and a S-cent piece found on
Hilt's person, corresponded exactly
with the amount of small change
which he left in the safe together
with the fit). The m'n also had a
pearl handled knife, which Mr.
Knostman thinks belongs to his wife.
Mrs. Knostman is expected over this
afternoon, and if she identities the
knife, the men who broke open the
safe are captured.
John Acton, who was arrested as a
supposed pal of Hitt and Donahoo.
was released this afternoon.
The residence of W. B. Ferguson,
702 Twenty-first street, was entered
early Sunday morning, and a gold
ring and child's wrap taken. About
the same time the residences of Al
bert Huesing, 840 Twentieth street,
and Alphons Mosenfelder, 808 Twen
tieth street, were also ransacked, a
boy's silver watch being taken at the
former place. Nothing is missed
from Alosenfelder's house, the ma
rauder having evidently been scared
away when they were about to carry
off a lot of silverware which thev
had taken out of the cupboard aqd
placed on the table.
Three bums were arrested bv
Officer Carnes this morning about 2
o'clock, for quarreling in a barn on
Twenty-second street, and taken to
the station in the wagon. They were
ordered to leave town this morning.
William Brown, who boarded at
Koenigsaecker's restaurant on Third
avenue and Twenty-first street, was
arrested by Officer Weigand for
creating a disturbance in Murray's
saloon, opposite Speneer square,
about 12 o'clock Saturday night.
He was lined f-3 and costs this morn
ing by Magistrate Schroeder. Com
plaint was also made against Murray
for running a disorderly house, and
he was assessed $5 and costs.
A forlorn looking female wan.
dered into the police station about 2
o'clock this morning, wearing a
man's white straw hat, her garments
all covered with sawdust, and also
carrying a good load of corn juice.
She told Captain Kramer that two
fellows had dragged her into an alley
near Seventeenth street back of
Fourth avenue, made her drink a
bottle full of whisky and criminally
assaulted her. Then they kicked
and abused her. When she came to
her senses she was lying in an old
wagon. Her hat was also missing,
and the old straw hat left in its
stead. She accompanied Officer
Carnes to the scene of the assault,
but no trace of her assailants could
be found. The woman is a stranger
in the town and is a hard looking
character, claiming her home as Osh-
kosh. Wis. She was locked up, and
win no nourit gel a sentence under
the soiled dove ordinance.

twelve years ago as a drayman.
Since his removal to Davenport at
that time he has lived in retirement.

Mrs. KlK-rtoW Death.
The Muscatine Journal of Satur
day evening has" the following obit-
uarv of Mrs. Ldgerton, sister of W.
B. Mclntyre of this city, whose fu
neral occurred there Saturdav after
noon, the remains being taken to
Oconomowochies for interment.
The many friends .if Mrs. Edger
ton, oldest daughter of II. A. Mcln
tyre. residing on West Third street
were painfully surprised to hear of
her death, which occurred at do clock
this morning, resulting from sciatic
rheumatism and other complications.
Harriet Blanche Mclntvre was born
in Wilton, Oct. 20, 1S..G, and there
grew to womanhood. She was a
graduate of the Wilton High school
and also of the Wilton Collegiate in
stitute. She was married Sept. 2,
1879, to Henry Lloyd Edgortrt. The
union was a happy one and their
married life was spent in Chicago,
but Mr. Edgerton's health failed and
he went to Arizona, hoping for a
restoration, but it was oi no
avail, ana ne aiea in t no-enix, 111
April, 1891. After her husband's
death Mrs. Edgcrton made her home
with her parents in this city. She
had been in poor health for some
time, but nothing immediately seri
ous was feared until a few davs ago.
She was bright, intelligent and hand
some, and possessed those traits that
endeared her in the hearts of all her
associates. She was a member of the
Presbyterian church, and held a high
position iu social circles. Her loj-s
will be mourned by her two little
sons, Robert and-Harold, aged 10 find
13 years, respectively; also her
parents, three brothers, Charles C,
of Oskaloosa; James E.. of Colorado

early life, removing with his familv

The funeral of the late Lorenzo C.
Elliott was held from his late home
in Buffalo Prairie township yester
day morning, and was one of the lar

cession being three miles long. The
services were conducted bv Illinois

other Masons from Rock Island also
attending. There were Masons pres
ent from Andalusia. Pre-emption and

cises. A Queer Provedure.
The Union indulges in a queer pro
cedure in its Sunday morning paper
in referring to the injunction pro
ceedings between the Tri-City Elec
tric Sprinkler company and the
Davenport & Rock Island Railway
company in taking sides in an issue
that is purely in the line of litiga
tion. The Akgi s on Saturday inter
viewed representatives of both com
panies. Mr. Guyer on the part of the
sprinkler company, and Mr. Lardner
in behalf of the street car company,
in order to present the matter faith
fully and became assured that the
proceedings, as was stated then, are
entirely on interpretation of contract,
Mr. Lardner in fact being particular
to assure The Augls that there was
no ill feeling between the two com
panies, and desiring that nothing
be said as coming from him that
would indicate any unfriendliness on
his part toward the other company.
Both these institutions have given
Rock Island such magnificent ser
vice in their respective lines that the
public can, without judging of a con
troversy that involves purely legal
controversies, only hope that it may
be satisfactorily a'djusted. feeling as
sured meanwhile that there is no
likelihood but that we will have both
the excellent street car service and the
street sprinkling arrangement after
the courts have passed upon the
point at issue that has arisen as to a
mere technicality in the contract be
tween the two.

A remarkable freak in the way of

cate the disgraceful incident on Mar

Mark the expression as to the re
publicans of Rock Island always be

then let it be recalled that in its Sat
urday's issue in referring to the im
mense assemblage at Harper's theatre

assumed that the republicans in the

Yet the republicans of Rock Island
"have always been the earnest advo

the vice president of the United
states, no matter to what polit
