The Rock Island levee is a dis
grace to the city. It is more so now
than it has ever been before in th
city's history. People coming to the
landing on tne terry are readily im
pressed with this fact. The appear
ance is unsightly and tne impression
is anytnmg but favorable.
Pi ivileges granted by the munici
pality have been abused. The levee
has became a general dumping
ground. Heaps ot sand and stone
are the most noticeable objects to
one approaching the landing, and to
the stranger the -natural beauty ot
the river front is apt ta be obscured
by the spectacle alluded to.
To a city blessed with the river
advantages that Rock Island has
possessing tba facilities that other
cities less fortunately situated covet
the levee should be as the front yard,
tbe door step, the best entrance,
This is not the case here, and th
neglect that is apparent is that it i
not, and should be remedied. De
sirable opportunity io unload should
be given 10 boats, but there are other
places along the river front than
those now made use of. Aside from
the appearance given to the city the
sand barges are from .the drippings,
gradually destroving the harbor

Charles McDonald Ilaa aa Accident
Which lie Knows Nothing.
Knocked into insensibilitv bv what
11 is conjectured was a collision with
some sort of vehicle. Charles, the
17-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. W,
C. McDonald, 107 Fourth avenue, ar
rived heme on his bicvele about C
o'elock last evening, his features
showing evidence of an accident-
out he was unable to explain whether
anything had happened to him. His
bicycle, too, was somewhat dam
aged, nut tne young man s memory
seemed blank. The qaestioning by
nis parents brought out no enlight
enment as to how and where he was
injured. Dr. Craig was summoned
and administered for his injuries
The physician attributed the young
man s mental condition to the stun
mng blow which he received, but
anticipated nothing serious. Charles
was yet unconscious of yesterday's
nappenings tnis morning, but is
gradually recovering and occa
sionally can remember an inkling
of the affair, which he believed
was a collision with a vehicle.
Mrs. McDonald stated that the
boy was subject to dizzy spells
and very nervous, and she was in
clined to believe that this, together
with the fright and stun of the colli
sion, if such it was, was alone re.
sponsible for his condition.
Third Arcane Accident.
An accident occurring on Third
avenne, near Twenty-third street.
yesterday afternoon, when a buggy
and bicycle collided, is supposed to
be tbe one in which Charles wa3 in
jured. The wheel rider was picked
up in the street delirious, and
alter attempts at resuscitation went
bis way. As Charles had been to
Davenport it is not unlikely that this
s now and wnere be met bis unfor
llltten by a Rattlesnake.
hile engaged in mowing weeds
on the Hennepin canal banks near
L.ock 36 yesterday, Henry Simmer-
lac b was suddenly pounced upon by
an ugly rattlesnake, which buried its
poisonous fang in his right leg
before be bad an opportunity to es
cape from its presence. A fisher
man bastened to Simmerlachs as-
istance and draw out the poison as
best as he could by suction, the
wound being afterward bandaged.
and the bitten man started to Milan
tor medical aid. It seems a portion
of the poison entered the veins and
on the way Simmerlach becamo
deathly sick, his almost prostrate
condition attracting tbe attention of
another gentleman, who placed him
n a wagon and hurried to Milan.
There Dr. Wiggins administered the
necessary remedies, and although
Simmerlach' chances for reoverv
were decidedly doubtful at iirst. he
gradaally improved, and by night
tbe physician considered him out of

MORE NIGHT MARE.

iuo oioiidu papers are naving a
distressing time again over the fact
that Tbk Argus has announced in
advance of them a few more indus,

the East Moline manufacturing site,

produced an effect that is really
startling. Not having located the

in their research to keep themselves
posted and that all that they can

posureof its plans, they fall upon
Bemiss, the boomer. The fact that he
bas been putting up in Rock Island,
bas stuck in their craws from the
first, and now, putting this and that
t gether, they have put Bemiss down
as the "squealer." l oor, mild tern
pered, unoffending Bemiss has been
letting the cat out of tbe bag, and
thus grievously offending the press
of the proud city that seeks to claim
him boots and bridle. It would
seem almost unnecessary to attempt
to vindicate Bemiss of' so grave a
charge, but TiiR Annus will never
theless of its own volition, and for
sake of his reputation in proud Mo.
line, state that he is not guilty. He
is as innocent as a new born babe, as
well in thought, act and inclination.
and his feelings toward the Moline
papers are as pare as the air he
breathes, and he is pretty particular
about that by the way. He is guilty
of no offense against society but he is
a good feeder, and he tlon t care

of the Moline papers before him he
is not taking any chances on dys

even upon the love it bears for its
professional brethren there, deny
that it rejoiceth in the fact that new
industries are to be located in a com
