the -elalxxrate preparations for work

only a few dollars been the object
of the. forgery.
The forgery consists of the duplica

been cashed at an interior point. The
check was made paynble to "Jack Dil

form similar to those used by the
company, being an exact diplieie of
the railway check, slave that it was
printed instead of engraved. ' It bore

of the two officials of the auditing de

the check valid, and of the assistant

While the paper is not like that

The latest rumor in railroad circles
and one that is accepted as fact in
the. west," is that the' Burlington is fhe
moving" influence which has furnished
the capital for the const ruction of
the Western 'Pacific road 'from Salt
Lake to San Francisco and the Moffat
road between Salt rLke "and Denver.
At the thne of the construction it
was insisted that the Western Pacific.
Was projected by" George J. Gould in
order that he might realize his cher
ished ambition of having a system
from ocean to ocean, and although
fhe story was denied persistently by
the executive heads of the Gould in
terests', there were many who refus
ed to be : convinced to the contrary.
The indications' now are that the Bur

over its own lines from Chicago to
San Frahcisco. :' Those Who :see the

JACKSON IS SHOT
Rock Island parber; is. Attacked
Thursday N'ght at Can
Accused of . InlJmacy "Whh Wife of
chant. F. W. Jackson, of this city, presi
dent of the Tri-City Labor congress,
was shot at Canton, 111., last Thurs
day night" by Joseph Burton, a promi
nent merchant of that town..
The cause- of the shooting, was
Jackson's undue intimacy with Bur
ton's wife. The ball is still in Jack
son's body, efforts to locate it having
failed, and- blood poisoning is feared.
Jackson for the past two jenrs has
been employed as ba-rber at the shop
of Iouis Schmidt on Second avenue.
One month ago he left for Canton,
stating that he had promise thereof
a- good xsition, and that if he liked
the. town he would locate there. The
news of the shooting was a shock to
his- friends, of whom Jackson has
many in Hock Island.
Of iJlntlnrutnhed Appearance.
ne is a" single man, about 37 years
of age, and of striking appearance,
always dressing well, and as was of4
ten remarked by his friends, "looked
more like a United States senator
than a barber.
During the summer he was elected
president of the Tri-City Labor "con
gress, in the affairs of which he had
always taken an active interest since
coining to" Rook Island.
A message from Canton late thig
afternoon was to the effect that Jack-;
son is resting well, but that the bul
let has not yet been extracted. The
story is that Jackson and Mrs. Bur-
ton first met in Rock Island. Hy pre
arraTigement when Jackson went to
Canton he applied at the Burton home
for board and was accommodated.
Burton became jealous of Jackson's
attentions to his wife, ami when they
met. Thursday night in a restaurant
after an exchange of hot words Bur:
ton shot Jackson. Burton- is proprie
tor of a grotery store at Canton.

1609 Second Avenue, Open j
Wed. and Sat Evening
During the Sale.
The announcement of this great
sale of good iiianos can scarcely fail
to enlist the liveliest atlention on the
part of those who may need pianoj
organ or piano player now, or those
who will have to buy an instrument
within the next two years.
It is a matter which vitally con
cerns. your poeketbook, as it means
the saving of quite a sum of money
in your piano- or organ purchase.
Believing that this announcement
plainly and candidly told will speed
lxst, it is our purpose to make a plain,
straightforward statement, giving the
whys and wherefores for this great
cut in prices on first class pianos, or
gans and piano players.
' We' have been negotiating with our
landlord for some time for extensive
remodeling, and it was Oct. 3, UI3,
when our deaf was finally consum
mated, and the season being so far
ndvanced it is necessary for the work
to begin at once.
During the past six weeks our fall
stock of pianos, organs and all kinds
't- musical goods have been coming
in iintil our store is now jammed full,
with scarcely room to turn around,
and here We are with this large stock
'in hand, and are obliged to turn over
the store to John Yolk & Co. Oct. -'.",

painters, carpenters, bricklayers, elec
tricians, plumbers, elevator and plate

store, all counters, partitions, cases,

'o the rear, and new freight elevator
installed. A new and commodious
warehouse to be added in the rear,
ind all plumbing and electric wiring
To leave pianos on the floor while
this vork is going on would simply
menu their "ruin, and rather than
place this fine stock in storage, we
have decided to give the citizens of
this city the opportunity of a life
time to purchase instruments at here
tofore unhearfl-of prices.
I'very piano, organ and piano player
in the house will Ik marked in plain
figures, one price to all, so that a

Hrlnkerhoff. and Weber Bros, pianos,
and the celebrated Kimball, Chicago
Cottage, and several other makes of
In order to fully appreciate the
money-saving importance of this sale
call of investigation is necessary,
but as an example to show what we
are doing we quote the following:
