Interest in the Atlantic ft Pacific

a special from Washington which
states that a bill was introduced in

authorised to construct and main
tain a continuous railroad from the
Hudson river in or near New Jersey
or from some point in New York to
San Francisco on the line it may se
lect, reference being bad to the short
est practical route. The company is
authorized to lease or purchase all or
such portions 01 any existing rail
roads as in its judgment are so lo
cated that they can be incorporated
as a part of the thoroughfare con
templated. 11 the company elect

interest of 3 per cent to be paid on
tne oona issue oy it.
This Atlanuo at Pacific air line
railroad scheme presented to the
business men of the tri-cities
several months ago by its promoter,
William Dallin, has not been entire
ly lost in the shuffle. The pro
jectors. ' are still hammering
away at the project, and although
they do not appear to nave got what
they wanted in the shape of bonus
and local appropriations for the sur
veys, they nave not apparently been
disheartened by the failure of that
feature of the scheme.

The clergy will hardly relish the
announced intention of the eastern
trunk lines of abolishing the half
rate tickets to clergymen after March
31. The general passenger agents
debated the matter last week behind
closed doors, but the sentiment was
practically unanimous that the half
rate ticket must go. As things are
now, preachers and priests of all de
nominations, sisters of mercy. Salva
tion army soldiers and even Sunday
school teachers, have had their rail
road fares cut in two by the courtesy
of the railroads. The sentiment now
among the trunk line railroad presi
dents is against the continuance of
clerical half rate tickets.
From the restrictions the western
roads have placed upon the half rate
tickets for the clergy, it is quite
probable that they, too. will entirely
abolish them should the eastern lines
pave the way.

Yesterday and last evening noted
some yfery unpleasant as well as
laughable! experiences in the memo
randums oL. individuals who battled
with the prevailing blizzard in at
tempting to reach home and other
destinations. Snow drifts fonr and
five feet deep had to be paddled
through in some places. To prevent
the frosty and marble colored article
from crawling up their troueer legs.
several business men were seen to
remove their eocks, place them over
their shoes, tuck their pants legs un
der them and proceed homeward to
remain for the nlgnt something un
usual. Many a young man got more
sleep last night than has been the
case for numerous moons.
Something . very noticeable, and
laughable in many instances, was the
care some men took in protecting
their chin hirsute projections from
the torrents, and how others left their
whiskers at the mercy of the wind,
to be switched about their faces like
a cow's tail in fir time, until enough
of the down-falling article had land
ed on their shylocks to make them
rather weighty and cause the owner
much work in carrying the extra
load. Men who undoubtedly had ex
periences of this kind or else take
great pride in the appearance of their
silken flow, let their beards hang
down next to their neckties and com-
tortablv tucked bcoeath their over
coats before starting on the stormy
journey. On reaching their destina
tion wbiskers would be taken irom
bis wigwam, given a few pulls with
the hand, and present as flashy an
appearance as ever. The man who
did not not think of covering bis
beard bad to Jet it bang over the beat
for a long time in order to get it
thawed out. Then how he swore
when he started to comb those knots
The numerous incidents which
characterized the day would take
many columns if half them were giv
en description. Suffice is it to say
that men- and women were blown in
all directions; they fell as they never
fell before; umbrellas became para
chutes; they waded waist deep and
reached home with an overplus of
pants. ' '
' She Had to Walt.
The wife of a Second avenue busi
ness man braved the chilly and gale
like wind the other afternoon and
walked from her down-town borne to
her husband's place of business only
to find her husband absent from his
desk. The lady waited until her pa
tience : was becoming very much
tried, but any tendency toward a
state of madness vanished when hub
by made his. appearance.
"W by, wbere bave vou been all

"Ob, I only stepped out a. few min

lie did not answer, pretending not
to hear her, but the way he
chewed his mustache, addressing an
envelope at the same time, was suffi
cient evidence that be diun t like it a
bit. He bought some candy for the
children, and they both went down
borne in the car.
A Little rnplearantneaa.
A little sensation is expected in
the upper end of the city very soon,
an increase of one in the population
of that portion having taken place a
week or so ago. Anything of such a
nature may be averted, however,
provided the accused, who is a tiller
of the rural soil, concludes to be
convinced "by the young lady and be
come her lawful husband. Some
time previous to said increase in the
population, she bad him arrested on
a serious charge, but nothing in sup
port of such an accusation hav
ing transpired, he was released.
Later developments have made the
case quite interesting, and a rather
racy airing of the details in court are
expected unless he is satisfied to
wander from bis old fireside.
More Than 90,000.000 Paaaracara

Judge Hiram S. Bigelow, of Galva,
Henry county,' having received his
commission as judge of the Tenth
judicial district succeeding Judge A.
A. Smith, resigned, is in the city
and will make his first appearance on
the bench in the Rock Island county
circuit court Monday morning. In
Tiew of Judge Bigelow arrival.
Judge F. Bookwalter. who has been
temporarily presiding in the Rock
Island county conrt since the open,
ing of the January term, left this
afternoon for his home at Danville,
and it may be said that his depar
ture is attended by the regret as
wen as the good wishes of tbe enure
Rock Island county bar. No jurist
has ever made the mends here in the
short length of them that Jndge
Bookwalter has since tbe opening ci
the January term, and yet the char
acteristics of firmness and determin
tion have not been more forcibly ex
emplified in any other judge here.
Judge Bookwalter's positive and de
cisive manner and his promptness
and intelligence in dispatching busi
ness are the characteristics most ad
mired, and probably quite as much
business has been disposed of as in
any similar period of time in the
Appreciation of the Bar.
In token of appreciation of all
these qualities as a jurist, as well as
his personal geniality and high
mindedncss, the members of the
Rock Island county bar had planned
a little supyer for the judge at tbe
Harper tonight, but bis departure
having interfered with these ar
rangements, a testimonial of the
bar's estimation and regard will be
sent to him at his home at Danville.
Judge Bookwalter has been on the
bench but four years, this being his
first term in the Danville district.
Judge Bookwalter this morning
overruled the . demurrer of George
uaas to tne answer 01 1 nomas Uorns,
treasurer of South Moline, on the pe
tition of mandamus brought by Baas
against him for the payment of an
order of $1,700, which the treasurer
held. was unlawfully drawn upon
him. It was argued at some length
by Messrs.' Searle and Walker for
the petitioner, and W. II. Gest for
the treasurer, during the fore part
of the week. This is one of the dif
ficulties arising over the South Mo
line school litigation, and a trial will
