impressions, of the place. The Chica
go Kecord-llerald's noted Washington
correspondent arrived in Iloek Island
Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock on the
Col. A. Mackenzie from St. Paul. He
is staying on the boat while here, the
guest of Col. .1. 1. Lusk,-of whom he
is an old Acquaintance and a warm
personal friend. The primary object
of his presence in the tri-cities is to
deliver a lecture at the Moline chau-
t input, this evening. He was. to have
spoken on the "Eternal City," but will
give iH'isonal reminiscences of th
late pope instead.

As a result of the trip down the
.Mississippi mi the lKat. Mr. Curtis
will ha vp some interesting informa
tion to impart to his readers soon.
Little work was being done as he
came, down owing to the high water,
but he noted a number of things
which will be readable. His southern
Illinois letters now appearing in the
IJecordi-l'erald were written .pi-! b
fore he went to St. Paul. After his
visit here he will go through Iowa as
far west as the Missouri river.

Ihis morning when he started, for
Moline he expressed a desire to walk
for a wav. as the davs on board boat
had gien him little chance to cer
cise. On the way he passed through
spencer square and expresseu his ap
preciation of its beauty. He then
launched into a questioning of his
companions as to Hon. i.eu J. v able
ami showed a lielv interest. The Ca
bles ami Curtises were, formerly
neighbors in Washington, so that the
two families were quite intimately
acquainted, (juitc a number of inter
csting anecdotes were recalled in
Heard Atout Davenport.
Mr. Curtis expressed himself as
quite taken with the scenic beauty of
Davenport and its hand'some resi
dence streets, but added in a discreet
ly lowered voice. "I hear it's' an aw
fully tough place." He believes the
tri-cities have a future of much prom
ise owing to their prominent location,
natural advantages and excellent fa
cilities for transportation.
