Several Ucht Burglaries In Rork lal
and and One to nallne Peter Hev
erllag'a Barlier lriahtn Oat.
Bungling burglars who are probably
just advancing from tbe next degree be
low the tramp species have been at
work in Rock Island and Moline within
the past few days, but the police have
captured one b)ld, awkward fellow who
acknowledges himself a tramp by "pro
fesh." He had already earned the more
desirable title r f burglar and sneak thief
when Officer ftchaab found him last
night in an alley in the center of
town and kcked him up. He gave
his name as Thomas Daily, of No
where. During the afternoon be had
entered the Louse of Peter Ecker, of
1713 Fourth svenue, and was sneaking
off with a go d-headed umbrella, when
he was deeded, but while leaving the
umbrella, made good his escape. Later in
tbe day he entered the house of Miss
Constance Mulack, on Second avenue,
between Nineteenth and Twentieth from
the rear, and got away with some silver
knives and a good healthy dinner. The
police, howevt r, secured the knives, but
not the dinner. But when he was fin
ally captured he had a pretty nice as
sortment of white fish, which await the
owner in the ice box at the Turner ball
saloon, where Marshal Miller sent tnem
in order that they might be kept.
Last night a burglar entered the house
of Antonio Pa' missanio, a banana seller
living on Tweiity-second street, and stole
$200 in bard earned and well saved
money, together with six gold rings, two
pair of earring) and several silk handker
chiefs. This promoted tramp has not
yet been beard from.
Saturday afternoon about 5 o'clock a
tramp rushed into August Col berg' 8
second -hand s' ore in Moline, and picking
up several knWes, razors and revolvers,
boarded a car of Rock Island. Tbe
Rock Island police were notified by tele
phone, but the scamp jumped from tbe
car before it rc ached Rock Island and
Mr. Peter Heverling had an uncom
fortable exper ence with his assistant at
his barber shop on Eighteenth street be
tween First acd Second avenues yester
day morning. For about a week .Tames
Minn had been in his employ, and yes
terday the latter arose at daylight and
tapping the till of its contents about
$14 and providing himself with a liberal
supply of ciga -s, fled. Heverling, upon
making tbe discovery, traced the rascal to
Davenport, captured him and got as far
back as tbe Rock Island end of the
slough bridge, when his prisoner made a
break for liberty and gained it through
the upper lumber yards.

Ridge between 11 and 12 o'clock jesters

This afternoon Mayor McConochie,
City Attorney Haas and the street and
alley committee are in conference with
Atkinson & Olof at the city clerk's office
for the purpose of designating which kind
of brick Bloomington or Galesburg
shall be used in the pavement of Second
avenue. City Attorney Haas has the
bonds and all other necessary documents
in readiness, so that there need be no de
lay as far as the city and the contractors
are concerned. Atkinson & Olof may
order their material, engage their men

court pioceedings are attended to and
the assessment made.

At the time of the episode of the Rev.
Hoover and the Corey boy last week the
Davenport Davenport'Qazette was inclined
to be rather severe on the girl Daisy
Corey, and to sustain Mr. Hoover's
caurse entirely. The Argus, while not
touching upon the character of the girl,
simply spoke of her course in this case
and reported Mr. Hoover's actions as un
becoming a gentleman in his position,
and it is probable that that gentleman
did not better himself in public estima
tion by some of the accusations and de
nunciations published over his signature
and at his request in the Arocs and other
tri-city papers of Saturday.
But the Demoerat-Omette on Saturday
made a conservative investigation of the
case and as a result, prints the following:
After a careful investigation in which
several persons have testified who saw the
scene and heard the talk on the ferrv boat
ast Thursday afternoon, the Democrat'
Gazette is convinced that the account pub
lished was incomplete and unfair. The
young lady in question. Miss Corey, so far
as the evidence goes, acted in a lady like
manner, clinging to her brother as she
naturally would. The third party in
terested, Rev. Geo. K. Hoover, used
language unbecoming a gentleman.
Capu Martens, of the night police says,
Mr. Hoover was excited. Wm. Cam
eron, fireman of the ferry boat, says
'Hoover acted as if he was crazy." Act
ing Captain Adams confirms this, and
several persons who were on the boat
add their voice in the same direction.
To say the least, Mr. Hoover over
stepped tbe bounds of propriety in his
words and conduct. It is not at all
strange that the passengers knowing
nothing of the circumstances, except
what they heard and saw, should act as
they did in taking up a collection for
Miss Corey, and offering to assist her.
A great many readers of this paper will
no aouDt study and wonder what is
meant by these two words. The meaning
this, that the Golden Eagle clothing
store proudly claims to be the high art
clothiers of tbe three cities, or, in plain
language, to be always in the front with
the newest novelties and latest styles in
the clothing, hat or gentlemen's furnish
ing goods line.
Yesterday morning (after a long delay
in importing) the Golden Eagle placed on
sale an elegant and beautiful line of gen
tlemen's imported silk shirts, something
which cannot be found anywhere west of
Chicago, and which must be seen to be
appreciated. They have been marked
$4.50 each, which is an extremely low
price for this line of goods.
In connection with tbe above line of
goods, they also received a consignment
of gentlemen's imported silk sashes and
belts. These goods, although a decided
novelty in this section of the country,
are universally worn throughout the east
and bid fair to "catch on" here.
Tbe Golden Eagle is also showing the
finest and cheapest line of gentlemen's
hot weather clothing ever brought to this
city, embracing more novelties and newer
styles than can be had anywhere in tbe
three cities. Call and be convinced
Remember tbe place Golden Eagle

To-morrow occurs the election for
three members of tbe board of education,

and one for the one year to fill out the
unexpired term of Mr. J. H. Tore. Indi
cations all point to the election of Capt.
C. W. Durham and Dr. C. C. Carter
fur the long term, while the withdrawal
of W. L. Aster, and the disinclination of
any one to run for the one year term,

drawn, and this leaves no contest for the
long term except as between Mr. Sears

cheerfully and enthusiastically support
Mr. Sears for the short term, and run
