OLD GUARD HOUSE REMOVED
Land Mark at the Moline Kntl of the Got-
Hammer and axe yesterday laid
low the old guard house and tool
shed maintained by the government
at the Moline end of the bridge to
Kock Island arsenal. Eor 26 years
I it had served as the quarters for the
"ruige gtiarus, anil John 4iamble en-
joys the distinction of having been
on duty there ever since its construc
tion, having been apjxinted a few
months after it was completed. In
the old days there were only two
guards at the bridge till the govern
ment inaugurated the S-honr rule.
and (iuards Penney and Joe Enderle
were the first to occupy the guard
house which now has disappeared.
1 ho island bridge was oned to traf
fic in 1873 and Guards Pennev and
Henry (iilligan were the first to be
given the appointments. Roth of
them were old soldiers, and ever
since the opening of the bridge has
it been the custom of the government
I to thus give preference to the men

-Many interesting memories ter
about the old guard house. With the
interest of the people in the water
power, the stage of Sylvan water and
in arsenal facts, the guard house be
cume u bureau of information and
the center of interest to Moline visi
tors whose many questions, a.thous-
uml times repeated, were always po-
litely and considerately answered bv
the guards. There could 'be found
the latest and most authentic data
about the river and weather, the
lirst snow and frost, highest water
and other memoranda of local his
tory from a record kept by Mr. Gam
ble these many years. And it is a
most accurate one, too.
The material of the old house has
become the property of Mr. Gamble,
and he will " Ml preserve as much of
its identity I, possible at his home

take possession of a new and more

Has Cabbage to Hum.
C. L. Anthony, who planted eight
acres of Holland cabbage just east of
town, is fairly flooded with the pro
duct of the land, lie has stored away
all of it that he has room for and
owing, to the expense necessary in
taking care of the remainder and
shipping it to Chicago, he has de
cided that it would not be protitaole
to ship it. Thousands of heads of
good sound cabbage are still on his
land, and if he cannot get rid of
them in the local market he will let
them go to waste on the ground. He
tuid today that he was not prepared
to go into the business of making
saurkraut on such u big scule us his
supply of cabbage would warrant,
ami that the price of covering the
whole patch in the usual manner
would be more than the cabbage is
worth. Consequently he is like the
man with a stock of very jioor cigars

said to be for sale, and with a remod

lodav (lhursday) v. ill mark a
inemoraule epoch in the history of
the Catholic church in Mu scatinc,
for it is the day on which Rev. Philip
Laurent, pastor of St. Matthias
church, celebrates his golden jubilee.
As a great and good priest and schol
ar, he stands amongst the foremost
in Iowa. During the many years of
his pastorale in this city, hundreds,
nay thousands, have had the happi
ness to form his acquaintance and
with this grew their admiration and
esteem for him. He is a priest of
the true type, excellent in miud and
character, lofty in aspiration, holy
ambition and exalted ideas of his
sacred calling. In his early days he
followed the grand bishop, Loras,
from his native Dijon in France to
the wild countries of Iowa, and hav
ing been ordained to the priesthood
now fifty years ago, took up his
home for life in Muscatiue. ' Thus he
hns witnessed hundreds of priests

witness and active partaker in the
most interesting half century of our
history. Muscatine News-Tribune.

SUCCESSOR TO HARRIS
It .vas given out unofficially in
ew York yesterday that the meet
mg of the Chicago, Rurlington
(Juincy stockholders in Chicago Wed
nesday was productive of more ae
tion than those concerned would ad
mit. According to the New York re
port E. H. Harriman, .lames Still
man, Jacob H. Sehiff, Norman B
Ream, Robert liacun and II. McK
Twombly were elected to the board
of directors. It is said that an at
tempt was made to withhold the
names of the directors until the ad
journed meeting of the board, to be
held in Chicago Thursday next.
No confirmation could be secured
n Chicago. It was suggested there
ihat the men naiuett in the New York
dispatch might have been agreed on
iv the various interests involved,
but it was not believed that the act'
ual election really had taken place
The election, however, is nothing
more than a formality.
lhe opinion seems to be gaining
ground that President Harris will re
sign, but the report that Darius Mil
r would succeed him is not be-
ieved. Mr. Miller is slated for sec
ond vice president, in charge of traf
fic. Should Mr. Harris resign it is
quite likely that 1'resuient t'nder-
vvood of the Krie will be his succes
sor. I know nothing about the state-
n:ent:i that I am to resign, said
'resident Harris last n''-it. "No
matter what should happen between
now and the meeting on Nov. 14, the
ublic will know nothing of it until
he meeting has adjourned."
Vice President J. C. Peasley said
he knew nothing of the various ru
mors concerning the llurlmgton.
