Capt.;Trom1ey Says No More Boats
Will bo Wintered at Well
Capt. II. H. Tromley, who is es
teemed as one of the most popular as
well as one of the most capable steam
boat commanders on the upper river,
and who had charge of the C. W.
Cowles the past season, says that the
f teamboat ways at Le Claire have
been abandoned and will in a short
time be-nothing more than a memory.
"The Le Claire ways," Capt. Trom
ley said, in an interview, "for a long
time were the principal ways of the
upper river and all of the big pack
ets between St. Louis and St. Paul
were hauled out there -i years ago.
Put the high water this fall, by cov
ering the approaches with a thick
coat of mud, has put the finishing
touches on the work of destruction
begun when the 1)., R. I. & X. W. se
cured half of the ground occupied by
the ways. The other half has been
secured for the right of way of the
I. & I., and the ways would have been
useless after next winter, even if the
high water last month had not made
its appearance. As I passed down the
river recently I noticed that the Glen
mont was at the approach to the
ways and learned that attempts to
! pull lier out upon them were unavail
! ins". She will have to be harbored
elsewhere this winter."
On War South
The remodeled steamer Weyerhaeu
ser, with E. P. Denkmann, of this city,
and party, is now well on its way to
the lower river. Vicksburg is the ol
jective point. The winter will be
spent cruising on navigable southern
streams, and in the spring the party
will return to St. Louis and take in
the world's fair before coming home.
The Weyerhaeuser as now fitted out
is one of the most convenient boats
on the river for a floating home, ami

NIGHT SCHOOL SHOU LD BE
RESUMED THIS WINTER
There have been many inquiries as
to the plans of the beard of educa
tion with reference to a night school,
carried on with such signal success
at the high s.chool last winter, dur
ing the season now opening. Mem
bers of the board are willing that the
school should be resumed, providing
that it does not involve any great
addition to the s-ehool expenses.
Last year teachers donated their

eourse, It Is asking a great deal of
those who spend the day in teaching
to labor at night also, but the work
could be so apportioned that it would
not fall heavily on the shoulders of
any one. The Interest in the night
school last winter was general over
the city, men, women and children
those whose edueatibn had been neg
lected in their youth and those who
were obliged to labor for a livelihood
in the day attending in large num
bers and absorbing the lessons given
them. It proved an innovation such
as the city felt the need for years,
and it should be continued.

Only Af alee m Bad Matter Won.
Perhaps you have never thought of
it, but the fact must be apparent to
everyone that constipation is caused
by a lack of water in the system, and
the use of drastic cathartics like the
old-fashioned pills only makes a bad
matte" worse. Chamberlain's Stom
ach and Liver Tablets are much more
mild and gentle in their effect, and
when the proper dose is taken their
action is so natural that one can
hartlly realize it is the effect of a med-

MAYOR CAUSES A 8ENSATI0N
Admitting at Molina Mestlng That
He Is a Smoker and
Miss Lucy Page Gaston, of Chicago,
founder and superintendent of the
Anti-Cigaret league, is spending the
day in Rock Island, addressing the
puiils of the high school this after
noon and later meeting with the
teachers cf the city, and outlining
her campaign against the paper-covered
smoke, and giving instructions
on how the tutors of the young can
aid in the work. This evening Miss
Gaston is to deliver a public lecture
in the assembly room of the high
Miss Gaston spent yesterday in Mo
line. In the evening she spoke at a
public gathering, to which the mayors
of the three cities were bidden as spe
cial guests. Mayor William McCono
chie, of Hock Island, was the only
one of the tri-eity executives to re
spond. During the evening he was
called upon to sa.y something apropos
of the cause in the interest of which
Miss Gaston is warring. The mayor
condemned the eigaret and pointed
out the disastrous effects if had on
the mental and physical faculties of
those addicted to its use, and heartily
favored stringent legislation in all
states of the union to prevent its
"But I could not consistently op
pose smoking, because I have the hab
it myself. I enjoy a good cigar, as
do most men, and there are times
when I smoke cigars that are not so
good, some that are composed mostly
of eabbage leaves, as they say. But
when I buy them myself I usually see
to it that I get a number one brand.
And I do not believe it does me any
harm. Now. as to the liquor question,
I am obliged to confess that I am not
opposed to drinking, if it is done mod
erately, for I take atrink myself oc
casionally " '
Woman Is Shocked.
"Oil!" exclaimed a woman sitting
behind the mayor, "Heaven help you,
The mayor for the moment feared
he had started something, and did
not know whether it would le safe
for him to proceed or not; but. as
there was no further demonst ration,
he proceeded in an effort to make his
position as plain as possible.
"I do not wish it to be understood,"
continued the mayor, "that I drink
through any particular desire for li
fpior. As I stated before, I believe in
moderate drinking, and I am a mod
erate drinker, only using it when I
feel that it will do me good."
The mayor, in discussing the inci
dent this morning, stated that he now
realizes it would have been politic for
him to have remained away from the
meeting, as did the executives of Mo
line and Davenport, but he said when
it came his turn he felt that it was
more honorable to tell the truth than
essay the role of hypocrite.
CUTTING DOWN EXPENSES
Rork Island Iload l'arsulnr a Retrench
mrnt Policy on liranchea-
From an authentic source comes
the information that the Rock island
company will inaugurate its olicy
of retrenchment in the matter of
maintenance by reducing the expenses
at some- of the stations along the line
of the recently acquired B., C. 11 & N.
property. The most of the men who
have been discharged are operators
and helpers at stations along the
branch lines, but it is said that a
number of places on the main line
will feel the ax of the administration.
A number of the offices along the
route out of Burlington "will be clos
ed. Morning Sun, Montezuma, Nich
ols and other towns will be affected,
in some instances , the office being
closed, while in others the number
of employes will be materially lessen
ed. This policy will be inaugurated
at most rf the stations on what is
termed the Muscatine Western. From
the branch lines the policy will be
taken up along the main lines and the
one idea of economy made supreme
over all other considerations.
Not a Sick Day Since.
"I was taken severely sick with kid
ney trouble. I tried all sorts of medi-
.cines, none of which relieved me. One
clay I saw an ad of your Electric Bit
ters and determined to try that. Af
ter taking a few doses I felt relieved,
and soon thereafter was entirely cur
ed, and have not seen a sick day since.
Neighbors of mine have been cured of
rheumatism, neuralgia, liver and kid
ney troubles and general debility."

The Milks' Emulsion Co., Terra Haute, Ind. :
Gentlemen In December 1 was taken with
a severe case of la grrippc, which brought on the
worst cough I ever bod. and for four weeks I was
under a doctor's care Part of the time I was
not able to leave the bouse. My physicians
said it would be a wonder if I staved oil pneu
monia. This frightened me, and, remembering
some very strong testimonials I bad seen In a
Terre Haute paper about Milks' Emulsion curing
so many cases like mine. I deckled to send for a
box. I received it about 0 o'clock in the evening:,
took three doses before retiring, and in two
hours' time I could feel my chest loosen up, and
by the next morning the soreness had all left
me. and in two or three days I was entirely well
and attending to business. I feel that I cannot
say too much for Milks' Emulsion, as I believe
it to be a truly wonderful remedy. Very truly
