FULTON IS STILL FEARFUL.
eyaraM 1SS) Ma aaS Is Walr.ee: far
A Fulton dispatch to today's Chi
cago Tribune says: "Citizens are
all quietly preparing for war, which
they thina may come at any mo
ment. Mayor Schwab last night
called for volunteers and over one
hundred and fifty men responded.
They were sworn aa special police
men and armed with shotgnns.
Sheriff Fuller was in the city collect
ing evidence for the preliminary ex
amination of J. G. Johnson, the -attorney,
which will be held here next
Monday. Maj. C. W. Hawes, head
clerk, returned to tbe city this
morning. The board of directors is
also here and will meet in tbe office
this week. William Bennett, city
marshal, is improving, while Julius
Sterenberg is still in a very critical

might practice by dividing their com
panies and nring on each other.
The Clinton Herald, whose sympa
thies are entirely with the Fulton
people. Is forced to admit that aft-r
their defeat the Rock Islanders made
no resistance, and were very peace
able and received all the insults Ful
ton threw at them, without offering
any remonstrance. It seems queer
that a master in chancery, an office
no higher than a justice of the peace,
can give injunctions when the Su
perior court dissolves them as fast
aa they are issued. This makes the
third injunction that McPhatren has
given on this question, a ad two have
been dissolved by tbe higher court."
Tbe Age also of Clinton, has this
reliable information: 'It was
learned that a socond train did leave
Rock Island over the C, B & Q.
Friday night and proceeded as far as
Denrock, when they were ordered
back by the division superintendent.
On this train, traveling men, who
passed it. say were over 3 JO men.
Had it reached Fulton it is safe to
say there would have been a riot, the
like of whioh has never been known
in this neck o' tbe woods."
The second train never left R ick
Island, but it got all ready to, and was
abandoned when it was learned that
another injunction had been served.
Rock Island people do not defy in
junctions, but when tbey hear that
the men and arms of another state
are holding their fellowtownsmen in
cars they are bjund to go to their
relief. Had the second expedition
left Rock Island it would have been
prepared for trouble. The men on
the first train were unarm ed, as they
went on a peace mission.
However, the people hero are
waiting to learn what Gov. Tanner
proposes to do, both as to tbe pres-
cui unitary bdiics oi runon citizens
aad as to the bringing of Iowa arms
into Illinois last rriday night.
