ROCK ISLAND. ILL
.Frank A. Hart, tri-euty passenger
agent of the Hurlington, states that
the failure of the morning train from
.the north to reach Kock Island Mon
day" ori the time given in the new fa
ille was not due to the schedule being
too fast, as published, but to poor
connections at St. Paul, unusually
heavy passenger traffic being a con
tributing cause. The trouble is not
with the; Burlington, whose trains
seldom fail to come under the wire
according to schedule, but with other
roads, whose trains with which the
' Burlington agrees to connect reach
St. Paul far behind time and thereby
delay the arrival at Kock Island.
The Rock Island has installed posts
giving trainmen notice to stop before
passing the crossing at the foot of
Seventeenth street. It appears that
this step has been taken in place of
putting in an interlocking system
such as was proposed a couple of
years ago and which the three roads
interested had up at the time.

patcher for the Bock Island at the

Cal Harris, who had rather a stren

LYFORD'S SHORTAGE NOW
PLACED AT $12,314.86
The finance committee of the coun
ty board has gone over the accounts
of the county treasurer's office and
find that the net shortage that Mr.
Cox and his bondsmen will be held to
pay as the result of the operations
ofLyford is $8,al4.S6. This does not
include the sum of $3,500 which Mr.
Cox had drawn as his salary and had
left in the county vaults for safe
keeping, nor $300 in connection with
the account of the Rock Island, town
ship collector, which were also taken.
The; total amount taken thus foots up
Mr. Cox states that there is no dis
position either on the part of him
selr or his bondsmen to discredit the
figures of the finance committee, and
they will be accepted as final and a
settlement effected on the above
Owing to' an objection on the part
of some of Mr. Cox's bondsmen the
afFairs of the office were not turned
over to Mr. Lyons, as has been in
tended. In the past it has been the
custom for the treasurer-elect to file
bond and take his place at the regu
lar time before the county board had
opportunity to approve of the secur
ity. This time, however, some of Mr.
Cox's bondsmen feared that if they
did this and there was any loss during
the period before the board passed
upon the new bond the new bonds
men could not be held for it and the
old ones would have to make good.
Therefore a halt was called in pr
ceedings yesterday afternoon. This
morning another conference was held
and the objection was withdrawn. Ac
cordingly Mr. Lyons took his office
one day late.

home. 43S Forty-fourth street. While
it had been generally known for some
time that his recovery could scarcely
be hoped for, yet the sad news when
spread abroad this morning caused
many expressions of surprise mingled
with those of deepest sorrow.
Deceased was born Dec. 21, 1S3G, at
Whetstone, Delaware county, Ohio,
and he became a resident of this city
when but 11 years of age. his parents

as "Honest John," a title that" he
thoroughly merited, and was often
