Broke Into a Car.
Will iam Smith, a very dusky negro,
was found by Officer Kinney last night
in the act of breaking into a Rnrliiig
ton box car at the freight depot of
that road. Although the man pro
tested that he was merely looking for
a place to sleep, his action looked very
suspicious as there were plenty of
empty cars standing close at hand on
the tracks. He was arrested and tak
en to the station. This morning Mag
istrate .Johnson heard tiu tnie 1olrt by
Smith, but found the o idonce. against
him and imposed a fine of and
costs. Smith was unable to pay and
was taken to the county jail to serve
out the time there.

unknown. The horse stood 15 hands
high, weighed 1.1 Oil pounds and had a
white mark on its forehead. On one
of its shoulders there is a s-ear in the
shape of a horseshoe. The police
have sent out notices to liverymen
and oflieers in neighboring cities to

Immense Business Demands the
Immediate Operation of Doth
The steamer Dubuque arrived in
port this morning on the down trip
with a record load of freight. The
lower deck was crowded to the
guards with 1,200 tons of goods con
signed 'chiefly for the through run,
and as a consequence the local busi
ness has been forced to wait. Owing
to this fact the steamer Quinoy will
leave Dubuque Monday, arriving here
Monday evening, and will pick up at
the intermediate landings the freight
the Dubuque was unable to handle.
The unprecedented- volume of business
has thus forced the Diamond Jo com
pany to commission the (Juincy ear
lier than had otherwise been intended.
The Dubuque's passenger business
was not at all behind that of the
freight, for the boat's register car
ried a list of 12." names. Several pas
senkers were taken on at Hook Island.
Carries 4U Itoufltuboutn.
Forty negro roustabouts are on the
boat this trip and are receiving big
wages, owing to the diflioiilty experi
enced at St. Louis in securing this
class of labor. The "coons" are re
ceiving $00 a month and Ihoir board,
and even at this high salary the ship's
officers were forced to scour the levee
calling out "$Ci(l :i month" before
enough men could be scoured to han
dle what promised' to he the record
haul of the season. A good many
jM'ople have boon of the opinion that
all that a steamboat hustler could
command was a place to sleep and
something to eat, but this trip of the
Dubuque goes to dispel that idea.
The boat came, down the rapids
from Lo Claire at dawn and left at
tv : :;o o'clock.
The steamer J. S. left at 11:20 o'clock
this morning for Muscatine with a
largo ciowd of excursionists. The
boat was crowded when it left this
side of the river and the Davenport
levee was lined with pleasure seekers
waiting to go aboard when the boat
touched there. According to the
schedule Muscatine was reached at
noon, giving the passengers a chance
to spend the day in that city, the re
turn being made late in the after
noon. Hi-spile unfavorable weather
conditions a fair crowd was taken out
on last night's trip down the river.
