The CaHUaal Prlaielplea f the Ha
tleaal TjBlii.Lat Night's) Op si
Mectiwg Baaqnet A Worthy
Arsenal Coutcil 171, National Union,
held its second open council meeting and
banquet last evjnlng at its chamber in
Armory building, being at home to
ita friends, a gcodly number haTlng been
Invited and despite the un propitious
weather quite a number were present.
These open meetings constitute one of
the happy and very profitable methods
employed by tbe National Union of In
troducing itself, its objects, aims and
teachings to su:h as are believed would
make worthy members of the organiza
tion. - The society dispenses with the
secret work of its ritual on these occas
ions and devotes the time to exercises of
an Interesting nature, which at the same
time, are calct.lated to bring out its
strong cbaractei istics and benefits.
President Rrbert Dennett presided
over last night'i meeting, the exercises
opening with ths hinging of the national
anthem. Then Mr. Bennett, after ex
tending a cord it! welcome to the guests
of the evening, took occasion to explain
briefly the nature of the order and i's
underlying objects and principles. It
was organized, he said, May 4, 1881, and
is composed of three departments tbe
council, assembly and senate the coun
cils being tbe local lodges, the assemblies
the state organ zations and the senate
the national he id. Tbe principles are
economy, equity and safety. It teaches
economy in butiness principles and in
tbe borne circle; the justice and reason
of its plan teat h equity; tbe character
of its members vouches for its safety.
Every effort is being made to protect tbe
order by care a id rigidness in the ad
mission of members. No prizes are
offered with a view of increasing the
membership. E ad risks are rejected and
certain portions of the country, that are
likely to be pestilence-stricken are pro
scribed, while men in dangerous oc
cupations are net admitted to member
ship. It is an insurance society,
not the least of tbe aims of which
are to protect its own members
and policy hollers. Tbe society also
provides for the most entertaining social
privileges, teaclies lessons of patriotism
to our nation, love to one another and
makes purity esuential to the lives of all
its members, il r. Bennett gave statistics
showing the economy of tbe National
Union's system of assessment.
Mr. Frank Nadler then made fitting
remarks upon tbe duty of all men of fam
ilies to make provision for those who are
dependent upon them in tbe event of
The vocal quartette composed of
Messrs. Ccoke, Collins, Don and Dodge,
which has not been beard together for
several years, sing with old-time force
and spirit. "Whore I Would be."
Dr. O. L. Eyt ter then spoke on the
safety and security of risks in tbe Na
tional Union. Tiie medical examinations,
he said, are so rigid and searching that
persons ln any way subject to heredit
ary ills are certain to be rejected.
The quartette gave the serenade,
"Awake, My Love," and in response to
an encore, gave "Old Joe."
Prof. S. T. Bcwlby gave a fine instru
mental selection and then Maj . H. M.
Abell made a pleasant little talk on tbe
strength, growth and character of tbe
National Unioii. In Chicago alone it
bad forty councils and the society bad
built and owns a magnificent lodge
building there. Tbe best classes of peo
ple, mechanics, business and professional
men are everywhere included as its mem
bers. None others are admitted. Mr.
Saville Johnston followed with remarks
on the duties of men of families as re
gards life insurance and the advantage of
taking the same in the National Union.
Adjournment was then taken to the
banquet ball where a busy scene followed.
Afterward rematks were made by Harry
Bostock who als) gave a recitation, tbe
quartette song "The Two Roses," and
Mr. W. O. Whitehead made a speech on
behalf of the guests of the occasion,
speaking very complimentary of tbe
National Union iiod tbe impressions its
patriotic sentiments and teachings, its
protection of home and country and its
general objects, aims and plans of in
surance made upon the observer.
The quartette sang "A Thousand
years," when adjournment was taken to
tbe chamber again and after some time
had been spent ia general sociability, all
joined in singing "Home Sweet Home,"
whither all directed their footsteps,
pleased with tie National Union and
grateful for the generous hospitality of
Arsenal Council 171.

Officer Cary arrested Robert Heintezel
man, of Davenport, on Fourth avenue
and Twenty-second street last night for
picking the pocket of James A. Bennett,
a Mollne barber. Tbe two men came
over from Daver. port last nlgbt in Hein
tezelman's wagoa and while in front of
Mumn's saloon, the robbery occurred,
Heintezelman returning the empty wallet
to Bennett aftjr taking $20 from It.
Bennett then ordered the arrest. Hein
tezelman was he'd in bonds of f 500 this
morning and sect to the county jail. He
has lived in Davenport all his life having
been born there. His crime was proba
bly only a drunken freak.

Mr. Swan Toungren ia circulating a
subscription paper on behalf of the Phoe
nix Hose company with a view of secur
ing sufficient futds to purchase a horse.
The council has always signified its will
ingness to assist the company in prepar
ing a barn and other necessary conven
iences and the company thinks now it is
time to doits own part toward increasing
its usefulness at d proficiency. The en
terprise thus manifested is deserving of
the best measu-e of public approval.
Tbe boys should have the horse.

MR. HOLMES' PLANS,
The Great stailro4 Frealdcat . Ar
rt vea Barns tm be Rebatlt Ml
Tracks to be Bestoeket at Oaee.
Mr. C. B. Holmes, of Chicago, presU
dent of the tri-city street car syndicate,
arrived at the Harper house last night,
coming to Rock Island in response to tel
egraphic advice from Supt. Schnitger of
the destruction of the Mollne avenue car
barns with contents Monday night.
This morning an Argus reporter called
upon Mr. Holmes and that gentleman re
ceived tbe scribe in his customary courte
ous manner. "You would like to know
what we propose to do in regard to the
destroyed property!" he replied, in re
sponse to the first inquiry. "I can an
swer that very promptly and very briefly.
We propose to get things cleaned up and
rebuild as fast as possible. The first step
will be to remove tbe carcasses of the
horses. That will be done today, as the
sanitary welfare of the people livins
thereabout demands the most speedy ac
tion in this regard."
' "What will we do next?" Get into our
old time running shape as fast as cir
cumstances will allow . The barns will
be rebuilt at tbe earliest possible
"Yes, we will rebuild on tbe old site.
The building will be of frame as we have
not time to wait, for brick. We need the
barns and stables at once and will push
"Certainly we will have new cars. A
large number will be ordered at once with
instructions to get them out as soon as
they can be built. They will be of the
same pattern as those we have already
put iu here, the object being to make the
equipment as fine as can be made."
"We are buying new horses as fast as
we can get them. Mr. Schnitger bought
a number yesterday and we shall secure
all that we can get hold of until we get
all we need.
"No we will not use any other kind of
power for the present."
' "How about the bridge line?" It will
be opened as soon as it is in running
shape. It will be nicely equipped and
no efforts spared to give the public ao
commodations they will appreciate."
It is not improbable that Mr. Holmes
will introduce electricity as motive power
on all his lines before many months.
The Union now asserts that it learns
that "the church or some of its members"
paid for the cut of the First M. E. church
which it published last Sunday morning
after obtaining it from tbe Abocs, to
whom it belongs. Tbe Union has not
learned scything of the kind and it does
not excuse its dishonorable methods in
obtaining the cut by attempting now to
lie out of it. The cut belongs to this
paper, and If anybody but this paper has
paid for it, we should like to see the
money, notwithstanding that it is not for
sale; and meanwhile a favor will be con
ferred by its return to thisorEce. The
Abocs is not inclined to be stingy with
its possessions or its enterprises. It
would have been very glad to have loaned
the cut to tbe Union just as it would cuts
of the new High school and other prom
inent buildings, which it obtained at the
expense of considerable time and money.
Neither does the Arocs begrudge the
First church any advantages it may gain
by the use of the cut, and it supposed it
was loaning the cut to the church when
It was permitted to leave tbe office, the
promise then being made that it should
be returned here. The Abocs regrets the
methods employed in securing the use of
the cut, not the fact that the cut has been
used by tbe Union, and if any good has
come of tbe same but we doubt it we
are glad of it.
A Tour ot the Line.
This morning a special composed of a
C, M. & St. P. Pullman sleeper and a
day coach, was transferred from Daven
port to Rock Island and which had on
board the following C. M. & St. P. offi
cials: President Rosweil Miller, General
Superintendent A. S. Earling, Assistant
General Superintendent D. A. Olin, R. B.

Bluffs division; E. D. Wright, superin
tendent of the Racine & Southwestern
division; J. B. Moll, general road master,
Onward Bates, engineer of bridges and
buildings, and Geo. F. White, division
freight agent. The party, with the excep
tion of Mr. Wright, came from Marion
this morning, and after inspecting the
premises in this city left for Racine, Con
ductor John Cummings and Engineer
Mart Gorman, of engine 432, having been
ordered to Rock Island from Racine yes
terday afternoon to take the train out,
Supt. Wright coming down with tbem.
"We have been out for ten days over
the entire system," said Assistent Super
intendent Olin to the Abocs reporter,
"and we find everything in good shape."
"How ia business, as a general
"Business is picking up. but it is not,
by any means, what it should be; but
we have found several places where we
can apply retrenchment and, by tbe
strictest economy, we think we will
make this season more profitable than
last. It looks so. thus far."
