Tonight the great drama, "The Black

considerably exhausted by his exertion
and the effects of the cold bath, and had

The "-WhlMi" to Be Keatored.
General Manager St. John announces
that on the 17th lost, the C. R. I. & P.
will put fast trains on its Chicago, Rock
Island and Umala line again. This is
compulsory returr. to a former train which
was abandoned almost a year ago through
mutuhl agreement between all the Missis
sippi and Missouri lines. The company
is forced to it, it saya, because the Bur
lington and Alton do it on Sunday next
and they are ff reed to it because the
Santa Fe is doing it already. In fact this
rivalry has existed ever since the Santa
Fe completed its new track and began
operations. The new fast train will be
something similar to the "G Whizz."
The Santa Fe bah been making inroads,
it is said, on the passenger traffic in this
section, and this move on the part of the
three great roads is calculated to circum
vent all efforts of the Santa Fe people to
compete with then.
Much Needed In Rock Island.
In the Davenpcrt city council Wednes
day evening. Aid. Lane presented an ordi
nance requiring railroad companies to
erect and maintain automatic gates, or
other raised gates, at railroad crossings
and furnish tenders for the same. It was
passed and apprc ved . Until the viaduct
is built, the Rock Island council should
make the same provision in the interests
of public safety and welfare, by ordering
gates at the foot of Twenty-fourth street,
the most dangerous crossing west of Chicago.
Mr. Henry Set roeder has removed his
butcher shop to t'o. 828 Twentieth street,
next door to Han igen's grocery, where he
has a nicer and cleaner shop. The new
establishment is aupplied with all the
conveniences for the prosecution of his
business, and will always be aupplied
with flrstclasa m at.
Strange later rmptten r a Brthrothal
Cerenaeny aet Driven Fran
the Scene With Clnba .The Se
The trial of Solomon Harris and hls
daughter Anna at the Armory yesterday
afternoon, elicited facta of a romantic and
Interesting nature, of which there was no
intimation in the charge preferred by
Louis Berstein that of disturbing the
peace and using profane and indececent
language. The parties to the suit are all
Russian Poles exiles from their native
land. Solomon Harris has been in this
country but a comparatively short time,
but he bad managed to Save enough to
bring his daughter Anna, over from the
old country where he had left
her with frienda, and she ar
rived - about six weeks ago. Har
ris and his daughter lived in a little
Polish settlement down on the abattoir
road, below town. The daughter had
not been long in Rock Island before she
experienced a desire to have a home of
her own. She communicated such wishes
to one of her own country-women named
Cohen, and the latter, following out the
custom of her own country, set about to
find a fit companion for the love-sick
maiden. She succeeded, and was not
long in forming an engagement between
the girl tnd Louis Berstein, a peddler.
Desirous, as both were, that the
union be consummated at once, a
Polish custom, requiring the ceremony
of betrothal first, it was resolved to have
this merry formality Wednesday evening,
and the father of the bride bid bis friends
to become bis guests on that occasion
and to rejoice with his daughter, and son
that was soon to be.
But the merry - making did not
last long. Harris, it seems, bad made a
proposition to Berstein that, in lieu of
the fact that he was soon to take his
daughter from him, it wes but meet
that he (Berstein) refund .the amount of
the daughter's passage from the old
country. This, Berstein refused to do,
and, in the quarrel that ensued, the fact
was developed thatBerstein had presented
Mrs. Cohen with f 10 for her delicate
offices and Anna, being impressed with
the true idea that she had been a mar
ketable commodity, sold on commission,
became incensed, denied her betrothal
and ordered all the guests from the house,
and the naturally shocked guests were
brought, without delay, to a full realiz
tion of the force of the edict by being
driven out by the daughter, ablv aided by
her paternal ancestor, and each armed
with a club.
These were the Nets as brought out by
the trial yesterday by State' Attorney
O'Mara through the medium of an inter
preter. And, after the court had been edl
fled for several hours, fined Harris and
bis daughter 3 and costs each. The
marriage ceremony has been declared off

by the Rev. Mr. Que. in his usu d happy
and impressive manner, and witueswd by
a number of the most intimate friends of

down to a bounteous repast in honor of
of the occasion. The presents were nu
merous and both ui-iful and ornamental.
The bride is one of Rock Iand's best
girls, who has a host of friends, and all
will unite in wishing her a long and hap
py life, while congratulating the groom
on his good fortune. Mr. and Mrs. Hun
saker left for Chicago, their future home,
on the 11:43 train last night.
At the residence of Mr. Geo. F. Pru-
den, at Milton. Ore., last evening, oc
curred a marriage ceremony in which
Rock Island is interested, for it was the
wedding of Miss Mollie Turner to Mr. W.
E. Creasy, a prominent and successful
real estate agent at Independence, Ore.,
which will be the home of the happy
couple. The bride has hosts of admiring
friends in this, her native place, who
wish her joy.

"Nearer My God to Thee." The floral
tributes wire beautiful, and included a
design of the "Gates Ajar" from Division
61. O. R. C. After the cere
monies the remains were -borne
to a special train on the
C. B. & Q. road by the pall bearers.
Conductors E. D. Terry, John Sullivan,
Frank Heffner, TLos. Marshall, John
Hereity and N. N. Coons, and then in
charge of Conductor Whitfield taken to
Linden, where the train was met by a
special from Aurora with the Aurora
division 96, O. R. C, of which the de
ceased was a member, and which body
conducted the 'exercises at the grave. A
large number of railroad men and their
families, including Division Agent Mack
and Trainmaster Stanton, went from
Rock Island with the remains. The Bur
lington road placed the train at the dis
posal of the O. R. C.and Mrs. Rand withs
Mixing Up the Cat.
Frederick Weyerhauser is now making
a trip through the Chippewa district and
sizing up the work accomplished during
the season. A letter states it la difficult
to estimate the cut of that region yet
with accuracy, but it will probably be
not far from 600,000,000 feet, and the
aupply for the coming sawing season,
provided the drives are fairly successful,
will doubtless be sufficient. The spring
break-up in the pineries seems to be at
hand. The mild weather of a week or
more has been rapidly destroying the
roads, and the night frosts have not been
hard enough to permit of repairing them.
Probably ten day a mora will bring the
man all out of the wood.

received a letter from Mark Ashdown, of
the Coe Pair association, saying that the
fair at Coe would be held this year as
usual, and that the dates would be Sept.
4, 5 and 6. He explains that the associa
tion has a lease of the Coe fair erounds
for three years jet. This settles it that
the two fairs will not be consolidated
now. But the fair on Sylvan island will
go on just the same. It is believed that
the slock of the new association will be
quickly taken after it is once put in tbe
market, and its sale canvassed for. If it
proves the success that it promises to, It
