Auother batch of letters from Rock
Island soldier boys to relatives and
friends arrived this morning, glad

Both Capt. McConochie ana Sergt.
McConochie wrote to their mother,
the letters being the latest that have
come from Porto Rico under date of
Ausr. 20. Cant. McConochie, in
whose charge our boys have for so
long been, sieaks of the company
having just received the first letters
from borne since their departure from
the United States. lie tells of how
overjoved the bovs were over the
long-delayed tidings, and speaks
cheerfully of the condition of the
company. "You can say to all in
quiries of relatives and friends," he
states, "that there is no sickness in
the company. All the boys are well
and happy. He refers to the news
having at that time just reached the
company that peace had been declared
ana of the anxiety of the company
now that such a state of a Hairs existed
to get back home. lie says the boys
were still at Utuado, 20 miles from

The Announcement of the Arrival of the
6th In w York.
The Associated Press special ap
pearing in last night s AKii's. show
ing that the reports of the Chicago
morning papers of the arrival in Aew
York of the 6th from Porto Rico were
premature are shown to lie further
sustained bv today's dispatches. The
i.hicago Kecoru s ficw lork corre
spondent in detailing the events there
of yesterday says this morning:
Karly this morning the Chicago war
relief tug C. P. Raymond, having on
board Daniel M. Lord, William A.
Bond and Maj. McClaughry arrived
with supplies and delicacies sufficient
to feed two regiments, it having boen
thought that the 6th Illinois would
reach here soon after the 1st. This,
however, proved to be an error, and
as a result enough provisions have
been landed to fairly overcome the
appetites of a Drigade."
It will be only a question of a short
time now, it is lmlieved, until the
loys are back, and the deferring of
hope will make their welcome all the

1821 SECOXD AYE
McCASKRINS ARE ACCUSED.
Dr. 4. F. Freeman Makes Serious Charges
I Against Then.
Serious charges are made against
MeCasknn&McCasfcnn. the attorneys.
in a proceeding begun last evening in
the circuit court bv John t . freeman.
the Moline cancer doctor. He peti
tions for an injunction restraining
these lawyers, the state board of
health and George E. Brown from pro-
I ceedmg further in an action in the
' latter' justice court in Milan, in which
freeman is the defendant.
I Freeman alleges the McCaskrins are
; guilty of maliciously attempting toex-
tort money from him, and that they
I have been persecuting him with van
- ous suits, the one charge set up against
him being that he was violating the
state medicine and surgery act, they
claiming to be the prosecuting repre
; sentatives in this territory of the Bli-
ois board of health.
Freeman states that he visited the
McCaskrins1 law office in response to
a letter received Aug. V; thai they pro
posed a settlement for $125, and
would not trouble him thereafter, and
that nothing would appear in the
newspapers about ' the matter. No
dicker was made at the time. Freeman
preferrin? to do business in the
presence of a witness. So shortly
afterward he went to the office again
accompanied by a friend, John N
Elnistedt, and asked the McCaskrins
if he could settle for ?100. They
called him into the hallway, and
said flOO would not do, but
that 101. 10 would. Failing to ad
just matters. Freeman states the Mc
Caskrins thereupon begun suit against
him in Just ice Schroeder's court. A
change of venue was taken to Justice
Cramer, who dismissed the case on
account of the insufficiency of the
summons. Another action was im
mediately begun and the trial post
poned by Jnstice St afford, and fol
lowing this a proceeding was started
against Freeman in Justice Brown's
court in Milan. In each in
stance the same viohtliou was
vhai'sred. Freeman declares the sum
mons in the last action was not issued
by Justice Browu, but that a blank
obtained from his office and filled out
bv the McCaskrins served as the in
strument to which he was expected to
appear and make answer to the
charges preferred. Freeman also
states that the McCaskrins had
criminal warrant sworn to bv W
Eastmau and issued bv Justice Staf
ford, charging him (Freeman) with
selling poisou contrary to law.
Freeman says he is engaged in' the
manufacture and sale of salves ' for
the treatment and cure of cancer,
He has retained Meese & Allen and A.
II. Kohler for legal couusel, and may
bring a criminal action against McCas-
krin & McCaskrm after the disposition
of the injunction proceedings.

the kitchen at P. Greenawalt's resi
dence on Nineteenth st reet and feasted
themselves with a hastily prepared
bill of fare from cupboard and cooler.
They were evidently so well satisfied
with the offerings of this part of the
house that they disturbed it no further.
They tried to get into the houses of
Morris Heagy and II. B. Simmon on
Twenty-second street in the same

out these hats. The "Knox" today has a reputation
