Help Out Church.
Dr. J. B. Donaldson, of the First
Presbyterian church was able to make
an announcement at Sunday morning's
service, to the. effect that in the spirit
of fairness and good will that should
characterize Sic dealings of men. the
church's suit against the bondsmen of
the contractors wbc built the church
had been settled out of court, and .that
the bondsmen bad agreed to bear $3,
00 out of the 7.000 or so which the
church will have to pay on bills which
the contractors failed to discharge. So
the incident is nearly closed. - Three
final payments are now due on the sub
scriptions recently made to wipe out
the debt on the church and it is hoped
to have a "mortgage burning" in a

her daughter, Mrs. Theodore Kautx,

born in Germany Aug. 11, 182G and

Two years later she removed to Buf

Gibson Doing Well.
Reports from the bedside of Jack
Gibson, the man who was shot Friday
evening by Dog Tax Collector Herman
Jasper, are that the patient is resting
easy and doing as well as could be ex

some serious complication develops, he
looks for the man's speedy recovery
Jasper is still confined in the county
jail and the authorities refuse to re
lease him on bond until it is made quite
certain that Gibson will recover. Al
though the prisoner has been booked
at the station for assault with intent
to commit murder, no information has
yet been filed against him by the coun
ty attorney and probably will not be
for several days.

PIONEER WRITES OF EARLY
STAGE ROUTES IN ILLINOIS
Henry Elsey, a Polo. 111., veteran,
grew reminiscent the other day and
wrote as follows concerning the pio
neer railroads and stage lines of west
"The Chicago & Galena Union rail
road was completed as far west as El
gin In the autumn of 1852 and to Free
port in 1S53. But very few if any
of the pioneers in northern Illinois
had seen a railroad track or a train
of cars and many frontiersmen loaded
wife and children into the lumber
wagon and drawn by a yoke of oxen
they drove many miles over the prair
ies to gaze upon the mighty monster
belching forth smoke and steam and
when the train had passed they re
turned to their homes fully convinced
that the problem of transportation
was solved and that the climax had
been reached. There are many yet
living who ' can , remember Just how
the old railroad track looked, espec
ially that portion of It between Chi
cago and Galena. Railroad building
was active in the eastern states and
the rolling mills could not supply the
demand for iron rails, or trails as they
Tim Tbrrf Pert Apart.
"Those who traveled on 'tie passes'
will recall that the ties were all of
three feet apart and that the rails
were about four by six inches, hard
wood timber and upon ( the top of
which were spiked two or three inches
wide strap iron upon which the car
wheels ran. Such rails were not in
use longer than when they could be
replaced by regular rails, but they
were the cause of considerable ex
citement and alarm while they were
In use. .The traffic upon the road was
heavy from the start and the spikes
did not hold the ends of the strap iron
down: they would get loose and curl
up and when the ends got above the
center of the wheel they would pass
up into the car and it was not un
common . for . newspapers to report
'Snake head accident on the C. &. G.

settlers had come from the east and
the south and had made homes in the
groves and along the streams where
wood and water were plenty, and Ga
lena. Savanna, Dixon, Sterling, Fulton
and Oregon became active business
centers, not isolated settlements but
towns into which the 'Frink and Wal
ker stages ran two or three times a
week and sometimes daily.
"It is doubtful if even among the
railroad officials of today there can be
found any who possess greater energy
and executive ability than did Messrs.
Frink and Walker, whose stage lines
carried the United States mail between
hundreds of towns and cities through
the north and west. That it . was a
yast enterprise cannot be doubted,
when it is stated upon good authority
that at one time they owned more than
50.000 horses and employed more than
15,000 stage drivers, hostlers, veterin
ary surgeons, station agents, etc. The
rush of emigration westward during
the 10 or 15 years previous to the com
ing of the railroads caused others to
start stage lines. Among them was
John D. Winters, who had several lines
of stages in northern Illinois.
Cat Rates at Tinea.
"At times the rival lines cut rates
and run horses between Chicago and
Galena. Chicago.. Peoria and Rock Isl
and, and on other lines, and it was not
unusual to see a double-decker drawn
by four horses come down Into town
on the dead run, change horses and
start on another run. for their driving
was like unto the driving of Hank
Monk when he took Horace Greeley
over the- mountains in California. It
was fast and furious. But the old-time
four-horse double-decker as a public
conveyance is a thing of the past. It
served its purpose and has passed
from the sight and almost from the
memory of men.
At the Chicago exposition h Uni
ted States postoffice department or the
transportation department . had upon
exhibition .the first engineer that ever
pulled a throttle upon an American
railroad. At the St. Louis exposition
there should have been present ss
guests of the nation the few survivors
who carried the United States mail
over the many miles of unsettled coun
try, exposed to storms and to attacks
by Indians and outlaws."
Fell and Cut Head.
John Boylan. Sunday watchman for
the Moline Plow company, tripped
while crosing the Rock Island tracks
Sunday on his way from early mass to
work. He struck his head on one ol
the rails and sustained a gash across
his forehead from his right eye to his
left temple C or 8 inches in length.

Is Bound Over.
August Hokinson was bound over to
the circuit court in the sum of $500
yesterday afternoon by Judge Andrew
Olson on a charge of malicious mis
chief. Hokinson loaded up on squirrel
whisky Saturday evening and finally
became so noisy that he was ejected
from the saloon of Sam Lofgren, corner
of Sixth avenue and Fourteenth street.
Outside he seized a piece of splintered
board and smashed it through a $30
plate glass window. He was arrested
and yesterday was bound over.
Prepare For Trial on Warr Notes.
Preparations are being made for tak
ing up the third trial of the first suits
on the patent notes issued by J. W.
Warr. The cases will be heard during
the January term of the circuit court,
and this step represents merely the be
ginning of the fight to determine wheth
er the building,, loan and savings as
sociation is responsible for them or
Whether the loss falls on the holders
and they must seek to recover what
they can from the personal estate of
Warr. Of late papers in the suits have
been amended at the instance of the
attorneys with a view to specializing
and getting at the exast history and
status of the notes in question, similar
to a bill of particulars in a criminal
case. It will be fully two years, the at
torneys estimate, before a decision as
to liability will be reached. The liti
gation will be carried to the supreme
court before the final verdict is reach
