WHITE CAPS IN M0L1NK.
A Branch of ill Perrec Society of
Terror Orftn i d lja.t .MgthtXow
It comes from uood authority that a
band of the secret society terror strikers,
known as the "White Caps," was organs
iied in Moline last evening. As all the
movements of such an order are kept ab
solutely s ecret with its members, even to
the identity of those belonging,
it is not possible to learn de
tails of the organization. It is learned
however that an organizer came to Mo
line last night from Chicago and put the
Moline branch in working shape, en
listing seventy-five men. Today the
Abocs has been t.dvised through a num
ber of telephonic melanges of the forma
tion of the society, but upon asking the
name of the informant, the conversation
was either abrup ly broken or the answer
was "never mind about that."
The same has teen the case with one
of the newspaper offices at Moline
which has beec notified by telephone
from various sou -ces of the organization,
but nothing further, and when the editor
of one of the Moline journals returned
from dinner today, he found on his desk
a note without signature, which read:
"A White Cat society was formed in
Moline last night, with an enrollment of
75 members. Asi no q lestions."
The order is one that has become no
torious through taking the law into i's
own Lands and committing outrages in
Indiana, Missou i. Ne.br.iska, and of
course, Kansas. Keceully branches have
been instituted n Illinois. While the
Auocs condemns these lawless mi-tho ls,
it is frank to cou'ea that if there is one
spot on earth v-heie radical -reform is
necessary, it is ohnu.
There is such n tiling 'possible as the
whole affair beinj; a well executed, prac

Rev. Mr. Gue uud the ladies of the

of the funds for tl.e erection of the pro

chase a large latch of the finest silk
cloth, cutting it into several thousand
pieces, and stniing them by mail to
prominent people all over the world.
The small piece of silk is accompanied by
the request that the recipient write his
name upon the fabric and enclosing a
dollar return it 10 the aid society. The
autograph is then embroidered In the
silk just as the subscriber wrote it.
They have already received several re
sponses, Edwin Booth, Gen. W. T.
Sherman and Harriet Beecher Stowe
being among the most prominent, while
all members of congress and of the Illi
nois legislature have been provided with
bils of ribbon and the request for the
signatures of the recipients made in such
delicate form tint nearly all will be com

EnpftnraglnK Outlook In in Pineries
Work Bring Paahrd all Over the
Korth Kxcellent Prosprcta for a
For some weeks past there have been
discouraging reports received from the
pineries, to the effect that there would be
a scant supply of logs for the mills next
summer because of no snow. The Min
neapolia Iflimherman, the authority on
saw milling in the northwest, in the issue
of Jan. 25, contains the following:
The past two weeks have offered ideal
conditions for patting logs on the bank,
with the exception, perhaps, that a little
more snow might have been welcome in
some localities. But the general condi
tions have been above the average.
W. A. Remick, of the Shell Lake and
Barronnett Lumber Co., made a littl
trip recently to several points in Nebras
ka. He says: "I saw a good many of the
yards and saw men who run systems of
yards all over the state. From what I
saw and from what these parlies told
roe, I am convinced that the stocks are
very low. They are much lower than
the dealers themselves intended them
to be. The stocks were not very heavy
in the fall and the open winter has served
to lower them much more than would
naturally have been the case The dealers
have not bought any in the face of this
because they expected that every week
would see the end of the mild weather.
Collections in the country have been
rather slow, but there is a good de.l of
activity in the hoa; market just now and
the farmers are beginning to pay up
Taken all in all I think the prospects are
excellent for a heavy spring trade."
Since the rain of last week, Bbick
river h-gger have had everything their
own way. In most camps, hauling whs
not stopped even by the rain, while the
hard freeze which followed, made roads
just as good as they can be, in which con
dition they have remained up to this time.
All reports are that it is impossible to load
the banks too heavy for the teams, while
continuing mild weather keeps men and
animals in good condition for work.

Mayor Gobble and D. Hayes arrived

was completed last year.' They are armed
with maps, diagrams, estimates, plans
and figures of the Dubuque bridge. They
talked with the merchants and business
men and learned manv interesting facts
such as the doubling of the over-river
traffic, the immense increase in the holi
day business, etc. The gentlemen are
also familiar with Dubuque's plan of
raising the money lor the bridge, as well
as other no less important details tnci

and Gobble found that Dubuque people

Duncan Clark's lady minstrels played
last night to perhaps the largest house
that any company of this kind has ever
drawn in this city. The law-makers
were well represented and considerable
merriment was had as they arrived and
took seats in the front row. The com
pany was very much as the audience ex
pected and to those who enjoy such, it
was a decided treat. The cleg dancing
and songs by the well known comedian.

suffering was intense. Men caught out

Rock Island. 111., Jan. 31 The im
pression is being conveyed by editorials
and communications appearing in your
paper that because the clergy of ihis city
are opposed to a charity ball, they are
opposed to St. Luke's hospital. This
impression is to me, unfounded and un
fair. We preach a gospel of charity.
Our churches practice It to an extent the
general public knows nothing of. The
benevolent work of the .Broadway
church alone amounted last year, as the
published reports of the church show, to
1 254: most of which was expended
here at home
Other churches, I doubt not, have done
as well. But we cannot do the work
which the hospital does. We cannot
provide a home for the sick or injured
stranger. Therefore we need the bos
pilal . We cannot as a community afford
to let it go down or want for means. Ii
ought to be lifted above all oatcb-penny
and questionable methods. And in order
that It may be, and that I may for one,
prove that while opposed to a charity
ball, I am not opposed to the hospital, I
make the following propositions:
t irst. I will be one of two hundred
persons to give $2a toward an endow
ment fund for St Luke's hospital; or
I will be one of two hundred persona to
pay, until further notice, an annual su De
scription of $5 toward the support of St
