A CRA8F: ON THE "Q.

Op hi rust Yestarday Arteraeen---A
Reek lalsvad K n Badly.'IaJared. '
A serious accident occurred on tbe
grade south of Ophiem and about thirty
miles from Rock Island on the Rock Isl
and and St. Loulu division of the C, B.
& Q. yesterday afternoon. Local freight
No. 11, running ttween Monmouth and
Rock Island, due here at 1:50
r. m.. was con.insr down the hill at
full speed when it crashed into No.
10 of the muin line loaded with
ice and bound from' Barstow to
Galesburg. Tbe latter train was making
all the headway possible, having mode a
good start to ascend tbe grade.
Both locomotives were completely
wrecked and tbe heavily loaded
cars scattered all over the field.
Botb orewa jumped in time to aavo them
selves with tbe ei ception of Geo. Malatt,
of this city, a bralteroan on the local, who,
hearing tbe whistle for "down brakes,"
jumped onto a flat car and was in the act
of discharging his duty when the trains
came together. He was caueht in such
a manner that his leg was terribly
crushed below tbo knee and then he was
thrown with terrible force against the
stump of a tree, where he was picked up
bleeding and in groat torture. He was
taken to Alpha, where an examination
disclosed tbe fact that the right leg was
frightfully cru9ha below the knee and
this portion of tbe limb will be worth
less in the future, if iudeed, am
putation is not deemed necessary
The right shoulder is dixlocated and there
is a ifreat ugly looking wound in tbe
scalp, while tbe body is more or less
bruised in various places. Malatt is well
known and very much liked in Rock Isl
larfd. He was fir some time previous
to commencing railroading, porter at the
Rock Island house. lie boarded at 2213
The local waa la charge of Conductor
Dan Coons, and was pulled by engine
173, with Engineer McQuade at the
throttle. The Galesburg tram was in
charge of Conductor Ho.we and Engineer
Bledell . The accident was plainly tbe
fault of the crew of the Galesburg train.
as that train should have been held at
Opheim for the local. Passenger train
No. 1, due from St. Louis at 8:50
last night, did no", get in until 2:40 this
morning, being delayed in consequence
of tbe collision.
The accident will prove a costly one
for tbe road, if it does not result in the
death of Brakeiaan Malatt, who may
have suffered fati.1 internal injuries.
The Em-See Klub, of Cedar Rapids,
the members of vhich are H. G. Mateer,
first tenor; C. B. McCandless, second
tenor; Dr. W. G. Clark, first bass; and
W. P. Muse, second bass, paid a first
visit to tbe city yesterday, the occasion
being the concert which was given in
Hiith School hall, for the benefit of tbe
high school plan J fund. The weather
was unpropitiou), but nevertheless the
hill was comfc rtably filled with an
appreciative and delighted audi
ence. i ue sinring or the cluo was
very enjoyable, as was attested
by tbe freqt enl applause and
numerous encore, to all of which there
was good natuivd responses. May the
Em See Klub cc me again, and when it
docs, may it be si re of a hearty welcome.
Mrs. J. M. Barth gave a piano solo in an
exeeptionally flno manner, proving her
self an bccpoqd i&hed musician. Miss
Stoddard also t flighted tbe audience
with an instrumental selection. Those
who were presejy felt more than repaid
for any effort it laigbt have cost, owing
to tbe bad weath r, to be there, and those
wno were aosent cannot know what a
pleasant entertainment they missed
Would it not be well to furnish
an opportunity by which they could
make good this loss in the shape
of another concert at no dis
tantdaj? We he ve had the pleasure of
listening to the Imperial Quartette, of
Chicago, aud the Em See Klub, of Cedar
Rapids, now wha: is to hinder our having

The Indaainal Fair C'aatiaaea With
Increased Internet -Tne State Ex
erelsea Attraetleaaror Toalcht.
Tbe industrial fair called outa large at
tendance last night, notwithstanding that
the weather was inclement. A number of
new and attractive exhibits were found
upon the floor, the most striking among
which were the displays of the Rock Isl
and Glass works, the Rock Island steam
laundry and Mrs. Lothringer's millinery
and needlework. After sufficient time
had' passed to examine and enjoy tbe ex
position, the curtain on the enlarged ele
vated stage at tbe west end of the rink
was drawn and President Cavanaugh an
nounced that tbe first thing in the way of
diversions under the auspices of the
Home Talent club would be a classical
musical comedy, entitled, "Deaf as a
Post," in which Messrs. Zeigler and
Cabal interspersed seme entertaining
comedy, with music on various instru
ments. Then came a very nice bit of
clog dancing, that no professional need
have been ashamed of, by John Finegan .
Fred Garvin followed in a darkey char
acter sketch, and then came E. E. Zeig
ler in his club swinging act, in which he
demonstrated his skill and proficiency in
handling the clubs. Oahal and Collins
closed the entertainment in double songs
and dances and sidewalk conversation, a
very acceptable performance.
A very handsome trumpet will be voted
to the most popular fire company in the
city; a handsome doll will be voted to
some young lady, and quite a number of
other contests will take place during the
fair. The contest for the prize of a 10
gold piece for the best quilt, promises to
be lively. A very handsome display is
already on hand with more coming.
For tonigfet a fine programme has been
prepared including a concert in which

Rock Island Citizen's Improvement assof I
W. P. Quayle and H. P. Simpson, the
former the business manager and the
latter the city editor of tbe Aroub, bave
published a 72 page book: entitled
"Rock Island Illustrated." Of the many
works of this kind that bave been issued
throughout . the country during the last
few years, this is one of tbe very best.
In statement it is direct and concise; in
description it is clear and readable; in
matters of factH ia truthful and compre
hensive; in illustrations it is rich and
picturesque. The attractions of Rock
Island have never been set forth to such
good effect as in this little book. If the
city had shown an earlier disposition to
spread on tbe wings of the printing press
Its many advantages it would now oe
reaping a larger reward. Quayle and
Simpson's book ought to be circulated by
