taining talk before the Rock Island
Club at the regular meeting last

remarkable prophecies concerning
this locality in its relation to the

tion for intelligent forecasts, of our

claimed to have discovered a great
law governing the migrations of man
through Europe from Asia and on to
America, in which country it is stead
ily going on westward. He illustrates
his remarks with a series of maps.
The course of the center of empire.
Prof. Uabcock claimed, . going west
ward, constitutes the equator of com
merce. It will eventually reach the
Mississippi river at this point. The
commercial meridian, or the similar
line running north and south, he de
clared, will cross the above line at
Rock Island, or near it. Having at
tained this point in its course. Prof.
Uabcock argued that the causes that
combine, to cause the west-ward mo
tion of the center of empire will cease
to operate and the point will remain
in this immediate locality.

were well pleased and frequently ap
plauded him. He Will deliver other

PASSES BAD CHECK
Stranger Representing Himself as
Gilbert Spencer Works Sec
ond Hand Dealer.
BUYS SOME HOUSEHOLD GOODS
And Receives $15 50 in Change-.
Game is Cleverly
A stranger, passing under the
name of Oilbert Spencer, passed a
forged check for $23 on J. P. Ament,
proprietor of the Second avenue sec

Thomas Rosenfield. proprietor of the
Third avenue plumbing establishment,
by whom Spencer said he was employ
ed, and was drawn on the Centra!
Trust & Savings bank and made pay
able to the order of Oilbert Spencer.
It was indorsed by the latter and so
regular to all appearances that Mr.
Anient did not question its genuine
ness. When the cheek was presented
for payment Onlay he discovered that
he had been buncoed.
Spencer is a man of probably 00
years of age. He did not hurry in his
game, visiting the Anient store sev
eral times for the insjiection of goods
that he said he intended furnishing a
home that he had rented in the upper
part of the city. He was a newcomer
and would be joined by his wife to
day, when he wished the furniture
purchased from Anient delivered.

port, Moline and other cities have
been furnished a description of Silen
