Anions the people attrasted to the
levee yesterday nurnicg. to witness
the coming of the new Diamond Jo
U instil p Ouincy ou her uret trip
south, were many expressions ot sur-
prise at the number ol boats in these
waters. ' It looks like the o'ld days,"
said an old ta.lt ot the inland sea.
I used to tun on this river, and it
U near onto 20 rears since I saw so
many steamboats hereabouts at one
t.mu as there are in sight today. I
tell you what, river days am t over
yet, not by a long ways. When you
gtt that Canal buiit over there you
will hud business bustling along the
The KIM vf the Local Parket.
The rise of the local packet is cue
of the best evidences ot the new era
of prosperity iu the steamboat busi
ness. Ihe strife ging Detwoon
the steauiers in the short trade is an
indication of what there is in the
business now. The Diamond Jo line
is slowly but surely putting into the
passenger trallic sunie ol the linest
packets that have ever traveled the
upper river. All theae things show
that the river as an artery of com
merce has net ceased entirely to
throb with the activity ot business.
The completion of the Hennepin canal,
it is said, will afford a new impetus to
the Mississippi river commerce. It
cannot fail to have such an effect.
The present season so far has proven
one of the busiest and most satisfac
tory in the river's history. Yester
day at the time alluded to there was
no less than a dozen boats in sight
at the levee. There were the two
ferries, the ljuincv, the Marv Mor
ton, the F. C. A. Denkniann, V. J.
Young, Jr., D. ltaardina. Lono Star.
Verne Swain and three rafters. Yet
none of these boats tarried long at
Uncle island. I hev landed and were
off to Davenport. Why?
Need of a Levee.
The answer should be read to the
common conncil of Rnck Island.
There is no harbor and no levee on
this side. Congress has made the
appropriation for an Improvement of
the harbor, recognizing the Import
ance 01 it to Kock Island, but this
will be of Mnall benefit as long as tho
levee remains in its present dis-
1 ce aldermen have a greater resnan-
sibility resting on their shoulders at
t,he present time than they fully
realize. The saving of the levee is
the paramount question of the hour.
LONG BECOMES A HERO.
lterelved at Clinton by a Torchlight Fro-
rc.nlon and a Ilaod.
The acme of local pride and steam
boat rivalry was reached at Clinton
last night when Capt. Jo Newton
i.ong was received with open
arms on his arival there
with the Douglass Boardman.
He was met at the depot by a
brnes band and a torchlight proces
sion. Whether Long was welcomed
as tho hero of tho catting scrape at
I'uvenport, in wnicti he was the
aggressor and Capt. James Osborn
the victim, or whether the dem
onstration was merely Clin
ton's expression of joy over
Capt. Long's release from jail pres
ent history faileth to relate. At all
events, Clinton felt proud to honor
uong last night, and did 6o with a
vengeance that showed the most
radical attainment of extreme devo
tion. With such an exhibition as Clinton
has made in this instance it is great
ly to be hoped that the short line
pakct war will soon como to an end,
as there is no telling what it may
caa to unuer tne reigning cirenm.

FLAG ON THE FACTORY.
Plow Shop Wnkmm Carry tho Banner
For SScKtniey and Hobart.
A delegation of Rock Island
plow shop workmen turned ont in a
parade of the republican clubs last
night and assisted in the demonstra
tion attendant upon the raising of a
flag oa the company's buildings in
me west end ot the city, ina uag
carries likenesses of tleKinley and
Hobart. The plow shop emploves
have also f timed an organization,
an auxiliary to the Lincoln Republi
can club, sad has about one hundred
Ihe club marched through the
heated street for several blocks. The
Lincoln club with its duck suited
marching organization,, followed
next to the band, as usual. Then
came the eagle, which by the way
looked rather down hearted last
night, and last of all came the ftic
Kinlev club, small in proportions but
dreadfully in earnest. The whole push
was preceded by Presidents dearie
and Haas, who tread gracefully after
the band, hut once bearle appeared
as though he was in eearch ot a
chilly reception, his eyes ever and
anon glancing at those familiar places
of business where fans play tag
with the flics, while submissive Joo
hobbled along with the chilblains,
and owing to the fact that he had
loft his earmuffs at home was very
ill at ease.
Finally the drillers, about two
hundred strong, arrived at tliB plow
shop, where the flag was hoisted and
Charley feearle and Joe Haas said a
lew words about the "grand old
party." Then the march up Second
avenue was resumed. The Lincolu
marching club, while its commonly
dressed brethren waited down the
avenue a ways, came np to Seven
teenth street and did the warm
spring dance for the edification of
the corner drug store, which re
sponded with a box of cigars which
were passed among the oil car
riers. The boys all went home then.

COLD WAVE IS COMING.
St ranee a. It May Seem That I. the Signal
Associated Press dispatches re
ceived at The Ai;is oflice this after
noon arc to the effect that a decided
change in the atmosphere is coming.
One from Omaha reads: "Reports
to the Bee are confirmed by observa
tions of the weather bureau which in
dicate a drop of 40 degrees by night.
A cold wave is sweeping from the
Observer Walz stated to The Au

temperature would probably exper
ience a decided downward tendency

grees, if that.
FRIGHTFULLY CRUEL FATE
That Which Overtook Brakeman John F.
Harnea at itrooklyn.
Brief reference was made in The
Abuts of yesterday to the fate which
had overtaken John F. Barnes, head
freight train brakeman,' on the Rock
Island road at Brooklyn. The un
fortunate man met his death in the
most horrible and cruel manner im
aginable. The train, which was being
made up, was in charge of Conduc
tor C. T. Clapper, and Martin Gillen
with locomotive C52 being attached.
A number of cars were being kicked
out when Barnes, after throwing the
switch, went to cross between the
cars. That was the last seen of him
by any of the crew, but eyewitnesses
state that he was struck by the cars
and made several desperate attempts
to release himself and lellMirectJy on
the track, his head and both feet
being completelyxsevered. The head
was fonnd a car length from the
'track on the outside, while the body
was between the rails. Seven cars
passed over him.
Barnes was 29 years of age and
boarded in this city. His home was
near Victor. Iowa where his moth r
resides, and where he will be buried.

RUINS TEE YOUNG.
Free-and-Esy Goes at Manhat
PUBLIC MAZES EARNEST PROTEST.
Sunday Mghti Celebrated by the Bojs
and Girl, of the Vicinity la Drinking and
banrlug and Otherwue Carrying on la a
Way Detrimental to Thtsueirec.
Probably no resort in this vicinity
has occasioned so much complaint
from the law respecting people gen
erally as Offerman's island, cr what
has more recently been christened
Manhattan Beach. Not against the
attractions are the protests being
made, but against the free-and-easy
manner in which people are allowed
to carry on there especially Sunday
When the island was opened this
spring under a new management it
was anticipated that a first class and
strictly regulated resort would be
the result. And so it was conducted
in a most orderly way for awhile.
But things gradually became loser,
until now they have reached such a
state that it is only just that the
public should enter a protest. The
gentlemen , who are managing the
beach know how to and are
capable of conducting an up-to-date
and first class resort, and it has been
somewhat of a disappointment to
their acquaintances that they should
tolerate the performances which go
on at the island. Manhattan Dctch
is picturesque, shady anlcool. One
could not find a more 'delightful
place to spend a day or evening.
Surrounded by water there is a con
tinued breeze blowing over it and
thea considerable money has been
invested in improvements and taken
aitogctner there are few resorts
which surpass it in this section.
inrough the week private parties
and church picnics are held there.
oecause there is an abundance of roost
and every accommodation contribut
ing to the enjoyment of patrons of
the place. And band concerts which
are given attract good crowds .from
among tho better class of people.
Then it does not seem reasonable
that the management should allow
affairs to be carried to such an ex
treme at other times.
Youthful doing Wrong.
It is more for the sake of the
young girls of tho three cities who
tlock to tho beach Sunday night,
that the public asks tho management
ts stop and reflect. If parents could
witness the maneuvers of the young
people down there swillin? beer to
tho strains of a band, dancing in a
pavilhon among a mass of sweating,
liquor-smelling humanity and listen
ing to the oaths of the blasphemer
probably they would b3 more inter
csted in the whereabouts of their girls
and boys. Girls in short drosses
and lads scarcely out of their knoo
pantaloons compose a goodly portion
of the several hundred who indulge
in the free-and-easy practices of the
beach until the last boat announces
tho midnight hour. Half dazed with
liquor and fatigued from dancin?.
the girl or boy falls to sleep or if
aoie sings a song and swaps stories,
all having an unusual tone; and the
daughter arrives home probably
somotime ueiore sunrise.
Indeed, it is most shocking to see
tho liberties which the extreme
youth of this locality indulge in at
Manhattan Beach Sunday night.
The public only asks for the protec
tion of the young; the ciders can
take care of themselves
