Bock Island Said to Have Arranged for
Important Connecting Line.
A dispatch from New York says:
"Rumors of a deal whereby the Rock
Island has made an important acqui
sition are coming into circulation in
Wall street, and may explain the re
cent inside buying and strength of
the stock. It is said that the road is
shortly to take over, through an al
ready "folly arranged merger, an im
portant connecting line. Rum or var
ies as to this property. One story is
that it is the St. Louis & San Francis
co; another which seems to have more
circumstantial continuation says that
the St. Louis Southwestern is to be
taken over from the Goulds and tuerg
ed with the Chicago & Eastern Illinois,
and that subsequently the Rock Island
will absorb this combined property,
'The recent activity and strength
of the St. Louis Southwestern issues,
which, by the way, have been more
or less due to Flower buying, seem
somewhat confirmatory of the latter
story. Only today Flower brokers
were active in the stocks which were

Island county were aronsed. The
... It s
night m particular was recalled
when Mr. Johnson walked the floor,
trying to discover some means
of still savins: to the Woodmen
order and to the people here a
victory which he had fairly ana
repeatedly, won, but which it seemed
was to be soatched from him by
methods wholly outside the control of
any lawyer. In the life of every pro
fessional man there are milestones
that signalize certain stages of ad
vancement, there are monuments
marked "victory," but in all of the
professional career of the honored
guest of the evening, Mr. Sturgeon
said be did not believe there had beeu
an experience, or would come again
an experience that would so challenge
his skill and ability as a lawyer.
Mr. Sturgeon said that talk was
cheap, however, when it comes to
properly expressing one's apprecia
tion of another. The friends and
neighbors in Rock Island of Mr. John
son bad felt that they desired to do
as well as to say, by "way of remem
The Presentation Blade.
Mr. Sturgeon then spoke of the
pleasantest part of the duty he was
commissioned to perform, and,, step
ping to the side of the room, drew
forth from its place of concealment
behind a door, a table on which
was displayed a beautiful tea
service of solid silver, enriched
with gold lining.
It is an old saving, Mr. Sturgeon
said, but a trite one, that there are
times when words are feeble factors
to express what we mean and feel.
but there are some words in the
English language that poets have
tried to wreath laurels about, and
rhetoricians have planted in figures
of rhetoric, but in all ages no one has
yet arisen who has been able to add
strength to the simple words love;
friend, neighbor, home. "Take this
gift," said Mr. Sturgeon, "from the
hands of loving friends and neighbors;
take it to vour home, sweet - home.
and wherever your journcyings may
be hereafter, remember that yoa will
always lind a hand extended to gleet
you in Rock Island."
BIK. JOHNSON'S KESPONwK.
Popular Former Woodmen Attorney
As Mr. Johnson arose to reply he
was jrreeted with an ovation that
attested to the-, genuineness of
the feeling toward him on
the part of those present. The
former general attorney of the
Woodmen order was visibly touched
by the incident, and in opening his
remarks, wh'ch were characteristically
eloquent and feeling, notwithstanding
that he was unprepared. Mr.
Johnson said that when he was
invited out to the Tower to spend a
social hour, possibly the last he would
enjoy among friends here, he had no
suspicion that such a design was
lurking in the hearts of his Rock Isl
and friends as had been manifest.
Acts of kindness-oft and sincere, had,
the speaker said, kept words of indi
vidual thanks constantly upon his
lips, but to those who bad conceived
this generous thought and carried it
to a conclusion, he could say that if
the lips failed, the heart was over
flowing with sentiments that no words
could adequately express. Although
Mr. Johnson said he had come among
the people of Rock Island as a strang
er, yet it had been as a neighbor, and
that feeling of neighborly kindness
never failing, had cheered, and en
couraged him and formed about liiru
attachments to which he would always
cling. "You "have exemplified to
me," he said, "the beautiful teachings
of the order, which the lapse of time
or the intervention of miles cannot
destroy." An occasion such as this,
Mr. Johnson said, presents a better
and grander evidence of the true
virtue of the order of Modern Wood,
men than all the millions that it
can scatter in pecuniary blessings,
great as those blessings are. For this
shows the beautiful friendship, the
orotneny love mat permeates this
order from center to circumference.
It shows how we mav relvunon eseh
other in sickness and in sorrow, and
how safely we may trust our mater
ial interests to the hands of our
brother men as well as to onr own.
I he order of Woodmen cets its
strength from the great body of the
common people, and hence these ex
emplifications of the order's teachiags
typify how secure we all are in the
great heart of the common people. Mr.
Johnson assured his Rock Island
friends that wherever his duties might
hereafter take him, be would always
have a warm spot in his heart for the
Modern Woodmen of America and the"
people of Rock Island, and be wonld
cherish the hope that the headquar
ters Duiiuing would stand for centur
ies as a monument to the pluck and
ierseverence of the citizens of Rock
stand, as well as to the principles
represented in the noble order, to
whose enterprise its erection was due.
Above and beyond the great intrin
sic worm of the gift that bad
been made him, Mr. Johnson said
that he would ever treasure the
spirit that it represented, and in con
cluding Mr. Johnson again spoke his
Following Mr. Johnson there were
brief, but appropriate, remarks bv
Hon. William McEniry and W. B. Mcln
tvre, who were introduced in turn bv
Chairman Maucker, the former going
into the history of the removal ques
tion and its legal and statutory features,
and the latter talking in a humorous
vein. Both were heartily applauded,
and at midnight the -happy occasion
ing the participants to their several
homes in the city.
The testimonial presented to Mr.
Johnson consists as stated, of a sil
ver tea service, each piece of which
bears a seperate monogram of the
initials of the recipient, wnue the
urn is thus inscribed:-

FIND MOONEY BOY'S BODY.
Wedged Between Two Lors Near to Where
The body of 6-year-old Edward
Francis Mooney. wno was urownea
Saturdav. was found at 10 o'clock this
morning wedged between two logs of
the raft about forty feet from the
place where it is supposed he fell in
The seirch had gone on uninterrup
tedly under the direction of the boy's
father, Edward Mooney, ever- since
the accident. Hope of recovering the
remains had about been aoanaonea
when- this morning it was decided to
follow instructions srivsn a lad v friend
of the Mooney family by a Davenport
fortune teller, who said that the body
was in the water i very close to
where the fatality occurred.
Assisting Mr. Mooney in the search
were Martin Kellv. Herman Schale,
Cordt Voss. Tady Kelly, Tom Hughes,
Charles Muhs and Charlf s Ginane.
Mr. Mooney, with two of the men,
rowed about dragging with grappling
hooks. The upper brail of the'raft.
which was moored just above t he water
works, was removed. A hen the ropes
holding together the logs of the next
brail were loosened. While Martin
Kelly and Charles Muhs were rolling
the logs, the former spied tne mtie
body, which was lifted into the row
boat and taken ashore. Mr. .Mooney
was overcome at the sight of the re
mains, which were in such a-state of
decomposition that they were all but
unrecognizable. Throwing his coat
over the body he picked it up in his
arms and insisted on carrying it
home, but he was induced by the
other members of the searching party
that it was not best to do this, and it
was placed in a box and conveyed to
Undertaker Wheelan's parlors, where
it was prepared for burial. An in
quest is being held this afternoon by
Coroner L.i V. Eckhart.
The funeral occurred this after
noon, with interment at St. Mar
guerite's cemetery, Davenport.

Beginning Aug. 1 the brownies will

accepting cheroots along the route
providing they pocket them and keep

until they get under roof where the
public will not be witnesses to their
The promulgation of such an order
has been determined on by Philippine
Miller, the head of the blue-coated
band of little ones. Phil says he does
not want to deprive the boys of any
enjoyment they may be able to get in
connection .with their official work,
but then he can't see where the fun
comes in in parading around the
streets with a bunch of rope or cao
bajre such as is usually handed out
to the billy club swingers surely the
aroma does not contribute to the bet
terment of the sanitary condition of
the city, and is not relished by those
who happen in the wake of the stream
of smoke that one of the brownie boys
throws out when he gets his work in
on a cigar. J hen. too, X nil tninks
strong tobacco makes his fellows diz
zy anl causes their thinkers to wan
der from attention to' matters they
are delegated to guard. Therefore he
considers it a wise move all around to
put a" stop to smoking while on duty,
lie has no objections, however, to the
boys lighting up when they are around
headquarters or at home.
