AS TO THOSE LUMBER LOTS. FOR A STEAMBOAT'S LOSS.
Capt. Jack McCaffrey A,ka Damage or
Capt. A. J. Whitney.
Capt. "Jack" McCaffrey, president
of the Dodds Steamboat company, has
men a petition at lJavenport in a f 3,UUU
damage suit against A. J. Whitney, tbe
Rock Island river contractor. The suit
arises from the loss of the steamboat
Helen Schulenberg in August, 1897,
while the defendant was engaged in
hauling the boat upon tbe ways, and
carelessness is attributed as the cause
for such loss. The petition states
that during tbe month of August.
1897. the boat Helen Schulenberjr had
been sunk in the Mississippi river a
short distance from Overman's island,
opjiosite the lower end of the city of
Rock Island; that the company bad
raised and repaired tbe boat so that 1
she could be taken to the Illinois shore
and drawn out on the ways to be
thoroughly repaired; that the plaintiff
told the defendant that the boat was
to be brought to Rock Island and that
arrangements had been partly made
with Kablke to pull the boat out ami
repair her; whereupon the defendant
verballv solicited the work of pulling
the boat out. stating that he could do
it as well as Kablke. and that he wonld
charge for the work 25 cents per day

Sir. I.ncie Cable-Castlemaa Writes Con
cerning a Subject of Recent Agitation.
St. Louis, Jan. 24. Editor of The
Rock Island Argus: Will vou be
kind e nougb to give me a little space
in your paper to enable me to correct
a few of the errors made by the Union
in a recent issue concerning the pur
chase of toine lots now occupied by
the Rock Island Lumber company.
Tbe article I refer to speaks of a pe
tition, which is being circulated, and
asserts that "Ben T. Cable purchased
the land opposite his residence and
contemplates tbe parkmr and exten
sion of his residence grounds to a
point at least three hundred feet west
of their present limits. But tbe work-
in? men will do well not to build anv
Treat boies on the results llowinir
from the petition."
Mr. Cable ami I purchased tbe land
in Question for tue sole purpose of
protecting our property and remov
inrr a nuisance, and expect to sell it
off in small lots. As 1 am a joint
owner with my brother, he would not
consent to arrant tbe petition unless
I agreed to it and under no circum
stances will I consent to the Lumber
company's request. I am convinced
that such shrewd business men would
not close a profitable business, rather
than lease or buv other ground than
the lots in question, but I can quite
understand their desire not to incur
additional expense if by any means
thev can induce us to allow them to
remain where they are, until it meets
their convenience to move. It is
a wealthy corporation, and as it had
already announced the probabiiity of
closing its mill in the next year. I do
not feel that it has any right to pre
tend that it is b ini; forced out of the
business, lours sincerely.
Li cie Cable Castlemax.
in excess of the wages he would pay
to each man employed. The plaintiff
alleges that he delivered the boat to
the specified place in front of the
ways, at the designated time, but as.
serts that the defendant failed to fulfill
his part of the contract, and that the
stern sunk down and broke off, there'
by rendering the craft practically
worthless. Hence the suit. Judg
ment is also asked for $376. 5 alleged
to be due on a coal contract.

The Symptoms of Kidney Disorder?
If -ou don't we will give you some
of tbein. There are at least 200
ymptoms. The reason there are so
many is because one trouble . leads to
omething else and so on.
Backache, or kidney backache, as we
call it, because it is that portion of
tbe back in tbe exact locality of the
kidneys; severe headache in the back
of the head; sharp, stinging pain in
the groin or lower extremities of the
abdomen; frequent urination, highly
colored and strong odor or with sedi
ment in the urine; nervousness or
stiffness after sitting or lying in lied.
Here are a few, but bloating of the
bod v, limbs or under the eves is one
where the disease assumes a very bad
stage. Many people perfectly ignore
these symptoms and when told that
they mean trouble, only laugh, but
later, tind the truth was in it.
Mr. Harry Mahr, at 613 Warren
street, and employed as candymaker
for Frank Mahr, 110 West Second
street, says a few words on his using
Morrow's Kid-he-oids: "I suffered
for several months with what I became
convinced was kidney complaint. I
felt badly all the time, was more tired
when 1 got up in the morning than
I went to bed. I had a severe and
sharp pain in my back and my appe
tite was poor.
'I read about Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
and thought I would try them, and I
am glad I did because they have cured
me. The pain in my back is all gone,
and I am feeling well and have ever
since taking the Kid-ne-oids. Where
did I get Morrow's Kid-ne-oids? Why,
at a drug store; you can get them at
any first-class drug store." '
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids are yellow
tablets (not pills), add cure all kid
ney disorders, lame back, sleepless
ness, nervousness, lossof vitality, etcj
