RILEY WRITES FROM SICKBED.
Sends Tribute on Death of a Brother
Upon learning of tbe death of Ben
jamin S. Parker, the rioted Floosier
poet, James Whitcomb Riley, who has
been confined to Lis bed, called for a
pen and paper and wrote while he
was held in sitting posture a poetic
tribute to Mr. Parker, the last work
perhaps Mr. Riley may ever do. The
poem, which consists of two stanzas,
Tie morning-, and th days are lonjr
A morning- fresh and fair and blight

And only in the song. Indeed
With you forever, as the song,

Grave fears are entertained concern
ing Mr. Riley's condition. He was a
personal friend of Mr. Parker.
Box Cars Robbed. While enroute
here Sunday evening from Bushnell,
111., nine of a train of box cars were
broken Into and robbed by vandals be
tween this city and the freight yards
at Bushnell, according to information
received by road officials here yester
day. Graphaphones and records, as
well as minor articles to the value of
5300, were stolen. The men who did
the" work made good their escape. The
discovery was made by one of the crew
when the train stopped for water be
tween the two above mentioned cities.
-Information was telegraphed ahead and
the road officials informed of the af
fair. The railroad authorities were put
to work on the case and are now hunt
ing for the thieves.
Begin Work on Depot. Work was
started yesterday on the foundations of
the new Burlington railway passenger
depot on Fourth avenue between Nine
teenth and Twentieth streets, and un
less unforeseen circumstances prohibit
the new station will be ready for occu
pancy early next falL The resumption
of activities on the Burlington railway
property results directly from the col
lapse of the union depot project. Work
on the new depot trenches was first
started last fall, but little progress
had been made before the city council
of Moline requested the railway to
postpone the building until a definite
decision could be reached on the union
station proposition. The various rail
way companies at last vetoed the union
depot plan as too expensive.
Lundahl Reelected. Thirteen votes
were cast for election of a township
school trustee. Emil N. Lundahl,
whose term had expired, was the only
candidate, and he was unanimously re
elected. There was but one polling
place, the Art gallery on Sixteenth
street. H. M. Reynolds, Henry Hull
and Mr. Lundahl served as Judges; the
clerk was G. L. Peterson. Holdover
trustees are G. Henry Sohrbeck and J.
Wood for Merger. It is declared in
one of the farm implement trade Jour
nals that immense tracts of hardwood
timber land in the southern states,
principally Arkansas and Mississippi,
are included, in the Deere merger now
being perfected. In Arkansas there are
34,000 acres and in Mississippi 25,000
acres of virgin forest which the ax and
saw have never touched. Messrs. S. H.
Velie of Kansa3 City, George W. Mix
ter of the Deere plant here and Super
intendent A. L. Moore of the Moline
Wagon company have returned from a
visit to these tracts and have awarded
to the Allis-Chalmers company con
tracts for the erection of a complete
lumbering plant of large capacity.
This plant will be situated somewhere
in Oauchita county, Arkansas, the ex
act location to be determined later.
There a beginning will be made look
ing toward supplying the various Deere
factories with raw material.
