whose cabin boat is located about half
a mile below the mouth of Rock river,
on Big island, looking out of the win

it to be that of Mrs. .1. V. Raut. who
was drowned accidentally near the

The body was identified by the cloth

the time of the accident they were
dragging the bottom for a line, nearly
a quarter of a mile above the wagon
bridge. The book with which they
were dragging caught on a timber, and
immediatelv the swift current began
tocapsize the boat. Unable to cut the
line. Mr. Raut in the iust-.tut that the
boat remained above the water, caught
the side of the boat, and his wife,
who was being carried out. by the wa

moment the current separated them,
and the woman was carried on down
the stream, under the bridges, where
all trace of her was lost. Mr. Raut
was carried near t he willows, and was
able to save himself.

WAS ANOTHER NIPPING FROST
Not Severe as Was Feared and Fruit
May Yet Pull Through.
There was another frost last night
as announced in advance by the weath
er forecasters, but in this immediate
vicinity it did not appear to be as e
vere as the one Sunday night and the
general impression is that the damage
was not great. Certainly the freeze
was not as severe as had been feared.
Of course many fruit blossoms have
been killed, but growers say that
enough have escaped to give good
crops if no other disasters are en
countered. PERSONAL POINTS.
Mrs. C. Ilorst is Chicago, is visiting

OOES NOT BIND THEM AT ALL
Aldermen Favored in Appointments
Say Was No Understanding.
Some of the aldermen who received
committee distinction at the hands of
Mayor McCaskrin in his appointments
Monday night have requested The Ar
gus to state that any preference shown
them does not carry any understand
ing with the mayor, that in fact they
were as much in the dark jn the matter
until the announcement was made, as
those of the legislative branch of the
city government who were snubbed.
They state that it will be their duty
to work in concert for the interests
of the entire city, which may best be
accomplished by harmonious action on
the part of the council in all matters
that pertain to the common good, and
the public welfare.

Sweeney & Walker, attorneys for the

The action by the city council in
condemning the mayor for his riotous

as an individual, gets on another tear,

ONE DISTINGUISHING POINT
Present City Administration Has at
Least Kept Streets Clean.
There is one distinguishing point in
the McCaskrin administration of muni
cipal affairs that The Argus has not
hesitated to commend at all times, and
which it will always regard as worthy
of commendation as long as he ad
heres to such a policy. That is the
matter of clean streets. No mayor in
Rock Island's history has made, a bet
ter record in this respect. All through
last summer the business streets were
systematically cared for by "white
wings' and it is hoped the same
course will be followed this season.
Indeed so far this year the streets have
received good attention.
Order at New Shops Causes Surprise
Strikers Return to Work.
Officials at New Shops announce the
resumption of t-he 10-hour day in all

there is not much more work ahead
apparently, than there has been forj
some time. The strike of hlripksmit lis !

Charles Hippler, Sr., who died Sun

w hen he removed to Geneseo and con
tinned to follow the same vocation till
late in life. The business is continued
at the present time by the sons, Charles
