opinion in this case was delivered by
Parker, chief justice, in which he said.
Inter alia, that 'the contract gave and
was intended to give the parties of the
second part, through the Standard En

fix prices at which manufacturers of
envelopes shall sell their output during
the term fixed by the contract, the ob
ject being to secure a better price for

not that the parties to it may have so

"'J he chief purpose of the contract

DAILY SHORT STORY
"Captain. said the general, "here is
a dispatch of importance which I wish
you to deliver at oin e to tJeneral Tay
lor. I do not think there are any
Mexicans in the region between our
two separate forces, but there may be.
You can either take an escort or scout
your way alone."
Captain Alien Duane paled. His gen
eral looked at his aid-de-camp curious
ly, wonderingly, for he knew him to be
a brave man, then asked, "Which
course will you twdopt':"
"1 shall scout through alone."
As If the captain had chased away a
disagreeable suspicion as to his cour
age, the general turned complacently
to other ma tiers.
What was it that caused the ejlor to
momentarily leave the cheek of the
3-oung officer iit being ordered upon an
ordinary duty; He did not know him
self. He only knew that some vague
message had tome to him to tell him
that this would be to him a night of
what? He did not know. More in
fear of cowardice than danger,, he
shook off the disagreeable impression,
which melted before his resolution Lke
mist before the sun.
Riding to the outposts, he left his
horse and moved away imo the debata
ble laud held by neither American nor
Mexican. A young mown shone down
on his shoulder, easting a faint shadow
to his left and to his rear. It annoyed
him. Turning to glance at it. be ouht
not refrain from a fancy that a figure
was following him. Looking straight
ahead, he fixed his ga.e on the plain,
over which here and there grew scat
tered clumps of tropical trees.
It was lonely out there on that deso
late plain where the poorest Mexican
disdained to build even an adobe hut.
The vipers with which the country
abounds had crawled into their holes;
the few birds were hidden, silent, in
the branches of the trees. It seemed
to him that even the melancholy cry
of a hippooi w ill, w ith which he bad
long teen familiar in the north, would
sound companionable. There were only
the plain, the trees, the moon and the
sky. oer which floated small clouds
with dark bodies and fleecy borders.
"Despite bis efforts to drive away the
impression that his shadow was some
one fid lowing him this impression grew
stronger. Turning again, he cast a
quick glance behind. There was the
shadow as before. Raising his eyes to
the sky, he shuddered. The moon was
behind a cloud.'
It was now clear to Captain Duane
that the mysterious follower was not
his shadow. What was it V If a hu
man enemy it would have long before
this shot or knifed him in the back.
If a friend, why did it not declare it
self? And why did he not bear its
tread": He listened, but by thf closest
attention he could not detect a foot
step. And why, ho asked himself, did
be, a soldier who had been twice
brevet ted for bravery, shrink from
turning and confronting this mystical
intensity of shade?
P.y an effort he gathered strength to
turn his head for one more glance.
There was the figure, more distinct
than before, yet not continuously so.
It seemed to Captain Duane that his
eyesight was not capable of holding
the image long enough to seo exactly
what it was. Now. for an Instant, the
head and shoulders would ke'p their
formthe face bony, with deep sunken
e;, os -a broad, prominent mouth. Then
the legs, long thin ones, would ba
tramping with one uninterrupted, un
changed gait, the whole covered by a
long flowing mantle which fluttered in
the wind, yet there was no wind.
Desperate, the officer halted and fac
"Who comes there?" he cried.
The words broke the stillness like a
clap of thunder from a serene sky.
There was in them a singular distress,
as if they had been for ages asking a
question to which there had come no
reply. The figure stopped when the
speaker stopped, standing, waiting, as
though neither impatient nor tired, con
fident that the object of its attention
would moe on and it would again fol
low. The young captain did move- on.
Though his physical strength was un
impaired, it seemed to him that his
soul was lagging, that it was slowly
but surely slipping away from him.
He was :ij ready to meet an accustom
ed enemy and fight as bravely as ever.
As Captain Allen Duane he was still
independent: as a human soul he was

from every ray of moonlight and dis

and he will be within' the picket line
of a friendly army. Will this shadowy
tramper remain behind?
Captain Duane pushed on. The in
equalities of the road were no obsta
cles. He took no thought at running
upon some roving band f Mexicans.
The mysterious figure was closing up
on him. At last it came so close that
he could almost feel its breath, like the
moldy chill from a tomb.
"Who comes there?" culled the

EARLY RAILROAD HISTORY
! Frank H. Spearman Diuuscs Fig'-it
Against First Rock Island Bridge.
In last week's number of the Satur
day Evening Post. Frank H. Spear
man has an article on "'Early Days in
Railroading." The article contains a
quantity of information, and what Is
of most interest locally is a bit of his
tory of Rock Island's early railroad
days. In discussing the conflict be
tween railwav and river interests.
Mr. Spearman says that the first rail
way bridge across tie Mississippi was
built at Rock Island in 15. He con
tinues as follows:
No sooner was the bridge1 com
pleted. at an enormous expense, and
after the most herc-ulean pioneer rail
road effort, than St. Louis steamboat
interests demanded its removal as a
nuisance and an obstruction to naviga
tion, and in a bill filed by James Ward.
a citizen ot St. Louis, m the I nited
States district court for the district
of Iowa, he prayed that it be adjudged,
and that it be "abated and removed, and
aid river be restored to its original
capacity for all purposes of naviga
"On the third day of April. ISCu,
this court adjudged that the first rail
way bridge crossing the Mississippi
river was a material obstruction and a
nuisance, and ordered the defendant
to abate and remove all the said piers,
together with the superstructure there
on' within six months. Judge Love,
presiding, stated very carefully in hij
decree the reason for the decision. 'If
one road transport freight and passen
gers to the east and west without the
delay and expense of changing at the
river, a financial necessity will com
pel competing roads to provide them
selves with the same facilities.' From
this. Judge Love, who died recently in
Iowa, foresaw that if this obstruction
was allowed to stand there would be
railroad bridges across the Mississippi
river every forty or fifty miles, thus
interfering with river traffic so as to
do great ami serious mischief.
"Hut Abraham Lincoln, who, fortu
nately, was counsel for the bridge eom
'wny. could not see it that way, and he
appealed to the supreme court of the
I tnted States. Lincoln, with the tre
mendous grasp of things as they are
that marks the difference between the
big nun and the little men, conceded
that the bridge was an obstruction
but held that it was not an unreason
able one. lie argued that rivers and
railroads were both great highways of
the people, and that travelers by the
one were entit led to as much consider
ation as the other. He even ventured
the prediction that the time would
come when the number ot passengers
crossing the river by railroad would
equal and perhaps exceed those travel
in;; up and down the river in briars!
.Meantime, repeated attempts were
made to burn the bridge, and two em
ployes of the chamber of commerce of
St. Louis, were arrested ami tried for
conspiracy to destroy the bridge by
fire. A decision at Washington finally
reversed the circuit court; the bridge
stood; but even in the supreme court
it won by a narrow margin. Three dis
tinguished justices dissented from the
majority and put themselves on record
with an opinion that would, had it pre
vailed till now. make it unlawful to put
a railroad bridge across the Mississippi

APPEAL TO UNIONS
Further Discussion of Lack of Attend
ance at Meetings of Central La
At the regular meeting of the Tri
City Labor congress last evening, fin-
ther steps were taken to secure better
attendance at the meetings, and to
arouse more interest in me anairs oi

ident Herges. T. J. Burmas. of Daven
port , presided. He made a strong ap
peal for action by the congress to se
cure better attendance, and suggested

the various unions and put the matter
before them. A motion was made and
a committee or tnree authorized to
take up his work. The committee is
composed of T. J. Barman. John Pil
grim and R. 13. Robinson.
A communication was received from
Samuel Gompers. president of the
American Federation, containing the
measures which the labor interests are
anxious to have enacted. It was re
quested that thr" congress present
these measures to the candidate's for
