St P.Aa-reeably Surprised Why it
XV u Dose.
The passenger conductors on the main
line of the C, R. I. & P. road have been
notified that a uniform advance in salar
ies will take place March 1. the new in
structions which have een issued to pay
masters by Oeneral Manager 8t. John
providmg that after tiiat date passenger
conductors who are receiving f 80 shall
receive (100 per mon'h, and conductors
who are getting $83 per month will be
paid 00 per month. That is what has
happened to conductors.
Who are the f 100 men and the $90
men?" asked, a Democrat-Gatette reporter
of a railroad man .
"Why, the conductors of the vestibule
and express trains are the high salaried
fellows, while the mail and accommoda
tion conductors are tho chaps who receive
the lower number of dollars."
"How do you account for this reform?
There were no threats of a strike no pe
titions on the part of the conductors
"O. nonothing of the kind it was a
voluntary act. The conductors are bless
ing St. John. The; believe be did it. It
Is no more than right. The conductors
on other first class railroads receive these
wages and why shou d the C, R. I. &
P. conductors not rective as much. But
there has been a weeding out among con
ductors lately. It han been going on for
several months and the men didn't
know what was up. Plenty of them
trembled in their boots and bad cause
to. There have been promotions and
set backs, both. Tiien, having got the
men that were considered the most re
liable, most careful, n oat gentlemanly of
their conductors, as tl wanted them,
and the careless and rough onea where
they belong, the advance in salaries was
made. There will be more ambition
among train men to be conductors here
after. The new order will Improve train
service a good deal, y u will see."

There was a decided sensation Wednes
day at Dubuque at the funeral of
Robert Palmer, brakeman on the
Cnicago, St. Paul Jfc Kansas City road
who was run over by the cars and killed
a couple of days a,o. As the hour
approached for the funeral a woman,
olad in deop mourning, appeared at the
residence of the deceased and demanded
admission to see her daar husband. The
widow of Palmer refut.ed to let her oome
in, and a stormy scene occurred. The
strange woman was flially forced down
the stairs into the street.. At the Oongre
gational church, when the services were
held, she again appeared and demanded
to see the dead man after the coffin was
closed, and was again refused. From all
accounts Palmer had !ecn twice married.
Ilia first wife was Amum) J. Morris,
whom he married at Waterloo, la., in
1330. Ttie seoond wife, Nellie Snyder,
he was united to at De Soto. Wis., in
A suit will be hroug it against the rail
road company for ne.ttgunce in causing
the death of Palmer. The case is likely
to be a complicated one. Wift No. 2 has
filed a petition for Administering the es
tate of the deceased and wife No. 1 has
filed notice that Rh will contest the
same. Palmer supposed she was dead
when he married the second time.
For some time back business men hare
been annoyed by a number of youthful
beggars, who, not being satisfied with re
ceiving aid on the first visit, have made it
a practice to call call again and then If
refused to hurl at the merchant the moat
profane and insulting language conceiv
able. Uno of theio dirty little vagabonds
attacked a merchant 'he other day who
had previously helped him and the mer
chant had some difficulty in ejecting him
from the store. It 1 1 understood that
these little imps are tent out by their
mother who lives in one of the old aban
doned houses near h river, and that she
spends the money the 7 collect in whiskey.
Having worked the a raight out begging
scheme for all there was in it, she recently
sent out with one of the boys, a note
which read, "I am peaniless and starving
to death; for God's snke help ma." The
police should take bo d of this gang, put
the children in the hands of some socloty
for the education of children, and take
care of the woman in such tcanner that
she will cease to be a public nuisance.
We can only judge of her own disposition
by the ill bred conduct of her children.

The discovery hai been made that
there is a large number of bogus silver
dollars in circulation. Hence it behooves
all who have noailver money to be on
their guard, and he v. ho is in possession
of shekels of silver v ill do a wise act to
examine his financial possessions. The
coin is the exact site of the good dollar,
and there is but the s Ightest difference in
the weight in favor o1 the good coin: The
ring of the bogus cola would deceive an
expert. The differeace, however, is in
the complexion of th; coin, if you please;
that of the gooddo lar is shining with
prosperity; that of the bogus dollar has
a dull, leaden color. The expression of
the Goddess of, etc., on the bogus coin
has a bilious expression. The design on
both coins t exactly alike, showing the
bad stuff to ba the wirk of expert work

were inclined to disbelieve tbe prediction

and called the tun to a dot. Five

Tbe Rock Island Industrial exposition
continues to draw bi audiences, the at
tendance last evening being equal to that
of the two preceding nights. Tue stage
entertainment was very enjoyable and the
amateur artists who proffered their ser
vices are entitled to great praise both for
their liberality to tbe labor cause and the
really meritorious entertainment they
presented. The specialties were such as
did much credit to those appearing in
them, the exercises opening with Collins
and Cabal's new act, entitled. "The Lit
tie Black.faced King," followed by Mr
John Finnlgan'a slog dancs and a rich
plantation song by tbe little daikey boy,
Jud Blackburn. Then came B. . Zeig
ler in his club swinging exhibition, and
Joe Garvin's minstrel dance. Oahal and
Zeigler introduced "Burlesque Magic"
and the company closed with the funny
farce, "The Doctor's Di-aeciiDg Room."
The many exhibits were again much
admired and tbe general appearance of
the exposition is, if anything, ahead of
tbe association's effort of a year ago.
when it was pronounced a grand success.
This evening the Rock Island Turner
society appears and the outline of tbe
programme Is: Gymnastic exercises on
the parallel bars, by the first class Rock
Island Gymnastic society; staff exercises
by the scholar class; Pyramids ou the
parallel bars by the first class; Iodian
club swinging by instructor L.. Preusse;
ballad "With All Her Faults I Love Her
Still." Joseph Burrows; exhibition by
Johnny O Day and Bobby Con well, as
sisted by Charles Allen, acrobatic come
dians and dance artists of Davenport.
Tomorrow afternoon, there wilt be the
laat grand matinee, when a gold headed
cane will be voted the most popular
business man, and a handsome doll given
away each one holding an admission
ticket being given a chance upon it.

One vjjry unfortunate result has come
of Davenport's recent Industrial fair
There was considerable surprise among
the managers when they came to foot up
the receipts of the fair and all but one of
tho individuals who bad been working
for the benefit of tbe enterprise had
handed In their money and report. This
missing one was a young lady. She
offered her services on tbe opening night
and was given a memoranda and at once
set to work selling chances. She was
quite handsome, says the PentomU-
Qatttt, and her appearance and de
meanor were somewhat charming to the
young men. Those who knew her de
lighted in conversing with her and those
who didn't know her sought her acquaint
ance, But only those who favored
her by "taking chances" would she care
to tarry with. She was not obliged to
move ihrougn the crowd in order to ask
some one to buy a chance of her; for sue
was surrounded by young men from the
time she entered the hall until she left it.
She sold more cbaooes, probably, than
any other girl. The last ni $ht of tbe fair
she left the city and alone; look with
her the chance book and money, which
amounted to about $80- Her fnltcs were
apprised of tbe fact and they notified the
managers of tbe fair they would make
good the deficiency. Within the past day
or two the whereabouts of tbe young lady
has been discovered. Her parents hope
to induce her to return home.
Crawford' cjierk BUI.
Tbe bill introduced into tbe legislature
by Representative Crawford, to regulate
stockyard charges, is meeting with
strenuous opposition in Chicago. The
reason U almost too obvloua to need
pointing out. As all know who ship
their livestock to Chicago, the charges
of tbe Union stock yards are very
exorbitant, which fact the men
like Crawford have been taught by
bitter experience. It is not to be won
dered at, therefore, that tbe Chicago
contingent in the legislature would
work tooth and toenail against the bill,
and they have, thus far, lobbied Craw
ford up to that point of perplexity that
his best efforts, before coming home,
were against his own bill though, per
haps, be didn't know it.
