A Private BntcrprUa af Which Hon

The new telephone enterprise of
Marshall Sl Tobie. mention of the
running of wires for which between
Andalusia and Milan was made in
The A rocs a few days ago, is of con
siderable more importance than at
first -glance seemed probable. The
company is one founded by Hon.
Tom A. Marshall and E. L. Tobie, of
Keithsburg, and their intention at
first was to string the wires and by
the 'phone bring the towns of Mercer
county closer together. They did
so, ana me success was so great they
have branched out and will before
this year is ended have connections
working from Rock Island to Mon
mouth, in Monmouth and all along
the line of the Galva branch. They
tap a field that has not been reached
by the Central Union company, and
they without a doubt will obtain a
good business. The project will
mrnisn many new connections and
will be a great convenience ti many.
Stations Now la Operation.
At present the stations located and
operating are Keithsburg, Seaton,
Ogle, Arpee, New Boston, Joy, Mil-
lersburg, Aledo, UilchrisU Viola, Pi e-
emption. Cable, Reynolds, Taylor
mage, Anaaiusia, Milan and Sher
rard. The construction men are now
working between thirty-live and forty
strong on the line from Rock Island
via Milan with which place the com
pany has connection through the
Central Union wires tapped there.
inrougn uabie, Jew Windsor and
Alexis. They are under the personal
supervision of the owners of the line,
Messrs. Marshall and Tobie, and are
hustling it at a lively gait.
The line they are 'completing now
will be at present the main north and
south one. It touches all these towns
between Bock Island and the Galva
branch, then runs from Alpha down
through Rio, North Henderson, Al
exis and Gerlaw to Monmouth. They
think that the men with the poles
will be in Monmouth by Saturday
night, and the wires will be up and
all in operation in a very few weeks.
This does not cover all the territory
they will touch, but they do not ex
pect to do more than this ' this fall.
In the spring a line will be ran from
Monmouth through Eleanor and Lit
tie Tork to Seaton, where it will con
nect with the present system-. This
winter connections with Keithsburg
and the other towns will be made
through the exchange at Viola.
Have Met With Encouragement.
The promoters of the line have met
witn substantial encouragement in
their project. In Keithsburg they
secured 43 subscribers in two and
ooe-balf hours, and in other places
have done very well. They charge
$12 and $18 for the rent of their in-
Melvin Heltahrands' Fat.
Further details of the catastrophe
in which Melvin Heitahrends met bis
death at Telluride, Col., Saturday,
are given in the following dispatch:
"Melvin Heitahrends, employed at
the La Junta mine, was killed by the
first snow slide of the season. He
and a partner went to the Jim Crow
mine, - on Ballard mountain," to re.
cover some tools that had been taken
from them. On their way it was
necessary to cross a dangerous place
on Ballard. It has a record for fatal.
ities in the slide season, bat they
ii . . . .
touw ddi reireai, as possession ol
the tools was urgent at the stage of
their developments. Heitahrends
was only 50 feet in the lead of John
Pnlver when the slide started. The
latter was in fonr feet of the-slide.
and saved himself by the most prodi
gious exertion. Heitahrends, how
ever, was in the center, and went
over a precipice, meeting with in.
stant death in the valley. After a
search of several hours the body was
recovered." The remains will arrive
in Rock Island tomorrow morning.
Hoary Wattarsoa'a Coming- Lactam.
Henry VVatterson is to give his
famous lecture, -Abraham Lincoln,1'
at the Auditorium, Moline, one week
from tonight under the auspices of
Graham post G. A. R. The St. Paul
The lecture was a true oration.
It was careful in thought, elegant in
dictiou and effective in climax. It
was a sincere, powerful address,
equally free from effusiveness or bald
ness, from grossness or affectation.
Some who might have anticipated the
swagger and rhetoric of the swash
buckler' were t prepared for the
quiet elegance of the man and his
words. Always solemn, often pa
thetic, as becomes its really somber
subject, the lecture did not excite the
tumultuous applause of a lighter
effort, but, a truer test of merit, it
was heard for two full hours with
undiminished interest and attention."
