reacnea none this morning, ana to
an Abgcs representative, who sought
ms views on the air snip phenome
non, stated that he had no views, in
that he had given the subject no
consideration. "Indeed," said the
professor, "I have not looked for
the strange object, and consequently
have not seen it. I think the world
has been deluded by a vision of
Venus. People are dreaming-.
Venns is the bright, particular star
in the western firmament at this
time. It happens everv two years
at this time of year that Venus be
comes unusually brilliant, and while
people not students 01 planetary
bcience are not apt to be start'ed
with the beauty of the planet, the
mote their attention is attracted to
it the more thev become impressed
with the splendor of the spectacle
which lor years has toasted the eyes
of astronomers. Oa the 28th of the
month VeDUS will disappear and
shortly thereafter will become a
morning atar. Then, I take it, the
people will imagine they see an air
ship in the morning.
Another star that is attracting
much attention now is Alpha, in the
southwestern heavens. This illuml
nating body has adopted a peculiarly
ana particularly red shade, and this
too, may have contributed to the
excitement that is prevalent over
alleged scientifio discoveries."
Saw the Ship Aajmln.
Passengers on the ferry, Augusta,
coming from Davenport shortly after
8 o'clock last night were positive they
saw wa air snip, mere were ) cd
board and all gazed in wonder at a
strange light, this time in the east
ern heavens. Tho sky bclcir com
pletely overcast there was no uppor
tonity to confuse the spectacle with
stars, and ail were satisfied they saw
an illuminated moving object. Rob
ert Solomon, of the Augusta crew,
had the boat whistle blow a salute
to the passing ship to keep to the
ngnt, out it disregarded the marine
laws and failed to acknowledge the
signal. Solomon afterward speak
ing of it said "the light appeared oil
in toe east np the river, it seemed
about the head of the rapids and
moved swiftly in a southerly direc
tion. Almost as we gazed it seemed
to cross over the upper part of the
Island of Rock Island, and cut across
the lower part of Molinc, and the
east end of Rock Island and finally
aisappearea in the southeast.
bhortly alter we observed a light
rise suddenly in the southwest which
soon, sent up a sheet of blaze and
disappeared. That was plainly a hot
air Datioon started to aeceive no
doubt, and eventually might
tare, but I feel confident that the first
was the air ship."
as the prospects are not unfavor
able to a clear sky tonight, the pre
ent positions of the planets as well
as me opportunity to witness the un
natural spectacle should be better
than was the case last night.
Aa enterprising young man sent up
nree not air balloons on Twelfth
street last night, but only one as
cended far enough to be seen.
.there are all sorts of funny stories
in town today about the air ship hav
ing been in the outskirts of Rock Is
land Monday, and having been near
aiiian yesterday afternoon.

With an average of a fraction un
