or the river just in time to see the
train rolling by Twentieth street.
He was accompanied by Cornelius
Lane, also of Davenport. So they
called on a few friends before start

reached the feiry landing as the boat
was pulling out. Lane jumped and
landed safely on the craft. But
Rourke was not so successful. lie
landed in the river. It is claimed
that Lane notified the ferry em
ployes that a man had fallen over
board, bnt that they gave no heed
to his alarm. Lane returned on the
next boat and found his companion
on Eighteenth street. Rourke had
lost his hat in tbo river and was
pretty well tired out. He also had
his shoulder bruised, having fallen

ROCK ISLAND TORNADO.
ana km 17 Mrgr44 mm Oaa af tba
, Moat Cevare oa Bteeard.
The Chicago Times-Herald of vea-
tetAay in ' reviewing great storms
winch have visited this country
speaks of one to which . attaches
touch local interest. , It says:
Perhaps the most phenomenal
and best substantiated evidence of
the strength of a tornado was shown
at Rock Island, 111., the first day of
January, 1876. A winter " tornado
wept past the city and on its course
struck a locomotive which was stand
ing on an embankment and .headed
south.- The embankment was' about
fifteen feet high and was flanked to
the east by a marsh of so soft a char
acter as to render it almost impassa
ble to hunters. The locomotive was
lifted ' from the track and carried
through the 'air a distance of 100
yards and dropped in the marsh,
where it sank so quickly that but
few of its parts could be removed.
The surroundings were such as to
preclude its reaching the position
now occupied by the wreck in any
other way than that mentioned. In
an article published in a scientific
journal at the time It was estimated
that the force necessary to perform
this miracle could have been gener
ated only by a wind having a ve
locity of in excess of 400 miles an
hour. Strange to relate, this tor
nado did little other damage."
Tba Toraada District.
The same paper has this communi
cation in general regarding the belt
of great weather disturbances:
The tornado district proper lies
between meridians 89 degrees and
101 degrees, and includes parts of
Kansas, Missouri, Iowa. Illinois and
the eastern edge of Indiana. In an
official paper on this subject Lieut.
Finley cf the weather ..bureau says:
A map prepared to show the entire
topography 01 that portion of the
United States included within the
meridians of 89 degrees and 101 de
grees would plainly illustrate an im
portant truth in 'the tornado prob
lem, via., that there is not another
section of our vast domain wherein
there exists opportunities so unlim
ited for the unobstructed mingling

rents, and currents highly contrasted
in humidity. As an area of low ba
rometer not necessarily a storm
area advances to the lower Missis
sippi valley warm and cold
currents set in toward it from

continues about stationary for some
time, ultimately emanate from the

regions of the British possessions.

AMENT MAKES ANSWER.
Billy tba Clrea Maaaor apeak at His
' Molink, May 30 Editor Attars:
Having just been informed that an
article appeared ia one of the Rock
island dailies a few. days ago stating
that I had discharged William Arden
and wife, and leaving them penniless
and owing them money and as the
artiele does- me gross" injustice. I
wish to state tbe true facts in the
case. Ten days ago I advanced fares
to Buffalo, N. Y., to Mr. Arden and
wife, and after their arrival advanced
more money for board. They repre
sented themselves as being first
class performers. Bat Arden's
wife proved to be such a
rank amateur that the Bock Island
people guyed her off the stage, and as
I did not propose to have my busi
ness suffer and a good performance
"queered" I was obliged to take her
off. I told Mr. Arden that he could
remain for the season if he wished
and he seemed satisfied to do so, bat
after drawing 10 more two days
later both skipped for Cincinnati un
known to me and beat their hotel bill in
Moline, which I also, squared leaving
me at a loss of 119. I don't mind the
loss of the money half so much as I
do their lving statements. I have
been a performer and manager tor 15
years and l defy any living man to
prove that I have ever beat him out
of an honest dollar or ever failed to
act the part of an honorable and up
right man and gentleman.
Yours very respectfully,

A horse belonging to Simon Falko
vetch was the cause of a lively and
exciting runaway up Second avenue
this morning. Mr. Falkovetch had
stopped in front of Sanermann's har
ness shop on Market square to have
a piece put in the bridle and the horse
seeing the advantage he had started off
toward Secoed avenue at a rapid
gait, at which juncture it collided
with a team belonging to Edwards 6k
Walsh, the maddened beast leaping
into the front part of the wagon and
gradually leu down on the heels of
tbe horses. The driver stuck pluck
ily to the reins and the horse which
had started the trouble regaining his
ieet the three animals started up
Second avenue at a ferocious rate.
At Eighteenth they were turned
north and stopped. In front of Bam
berger's clothing store the wsgon at
tached to calkovetch's horse struck
Dr. Plummer's buggy and was left
there. At -the end of the run little
injury was found to be done to the
horses. Mr. Falkovetch's vehicle
was damaged, as was Dr. Plummer's
bugey, but it Was a close call to a
terrific runaway all around.
The Falkovetch horse has the repu
tation of being a fractious and
vicious animal and quite fond of
such little escapades as it indulged
in wis morning, it is a dangerous
animal to be allowed on tbe streets.

Sylvaa Steal Work, nkat Don.
The Sylvan Steel works on Sylvan
Island have shut down, for what
length of time it is impossible to de
termine. During last week there
was complaint on the part of the
roughera owing to a system the com
pany had in voue of working both
the beater and rougher men nnder a
combined system of piece and time
work, and eventually this plan was
aDoiisned and the piece work plan
adopted as to both classes. A prop
osition was made to the company to
aaopt tne scale or the Aimalagated
Association of Steel Workers, and
while the company had this under
consideration the works were shut
down. The men all found them
selves locked out when they went to
work this morning.
