months and 13 days of age. lie came to
Rock Island county when but two years
or age (in 1841) with his father Oilbert
Jaraieson, who died April 14, 1874. In
his youth, the now deceased doctor went
back across the water to get an education,
and be graduated at Edinnurg University,
Scotland, in 18(r, as an M. U. It was
while in Great Britain to get his educa
tion that he married Miss Nora Helen
Murphy, of lerby, England. Two chil

returned to this country, and located im
mediately in Moline in the old Browning
& hntrikin house on Sixteenth street.
His mother still survives, and lives

from the Howlesburg cherch, the Rev.
C. L. Morgan officiating.
The doctor-was one of the best known
men in the county, of a jovial disposition
and having no enemies.
Reappointed Innpertor eneral.
Members of the Rodman Rifles will be
interested in knowing that Col. W. S.
Bracken, now living temporarily in Chi
cago, but who really belongs in Peoria,
has just been reappointed by Gov. Fifer
as inspector general of the Illinois Na
tional Guards with the rank of colonel.
Col. Brackett was first appointed by Gov.
Oglesby and his reappointment is a flut
tering recognition ot his services in the
matter of promoting the discipline and
efficiency of the state military force. As
the officer nest in rank to the adjutant
general. Col. Brackett is the youngest
man on the governor's staff, but is re
garded as authority on the various mat
ters pertaining to his department, as
well as in military law. Last year he
made the entire inspection of the stale
troops in person, traveling 6,6iX miles
and visiting all the companies at different
points and mustering the entire force of
4,000 men throughout the state. The
roster of officers of the National Guard
shows that Col. Brackett took an active
part in the suppression of the riots of
1877 in Chicago; was made captain of
Troop "D;" 1st Cavalry, August 15,
1878; resigned in 1880; Captain of Troop
"C" 1st Cavalry, May 1880; resigned in

The County Molonn.
The board of BUcr visors yesterday
beard the report of the committee on
equalization as follows:
Your committee on equalization beg
leave to submit the following report: We
carefully examined and compared the as
connty, nm Afti..aMV) -v.t,"u in the
sors, and believe ihe valuation 1n uncn
town bear a fair and just relation to the
valuations in the other towns of the
county. We therefore recommend that
no change be made in the assessments as
returned by the several assessors.
A lartre number of miscellaneous claims
were allowed and a number of bills re-
jected. some for informality and some for
not coming within the scope of the
board's resolution pertaining thereto.
This morning the board has gone on
its annual visit to the county farm, a
number of supervisors together with
County Clerk Donaldson going out on the
morning train on the R. I. &, P. road, and
others driving over the hills to the poor
bouse from their respective homes. The
board iB in readiness to adj.turn and will
doubtless do so tonight.
Worth Looking: After.
The Non-Electric Watch company,
employing l,4(Kj men, one of the largest
factories in an eastern metropolis, has
determined to move west. They want a
bonus of $30,000 invested in land, which
will just about pay the expenses of mov
ing and make up for the delay in their
business. The idea is to use only balf
the land for the plant, the other portion
to be owned by the contributors to the
bonus. By reason of the increased value
of the real estate in the vicinity of their
factory the salo of this portion is ex
pec ted to more than make good the con
tribution to the bonus. The Improve
ment association might look into this
matter at its meeting tomorrow night
The Sew Jl. K. Church.
CoIIibs Bros, have been awarded the
contract for everything but the stone
work of the new Methodist church, in

tart in tomorrow to tear down the old
church to make room for the new, which
when completed, will be the largest and
handsomest church in the city.

Hillsdale, July 8. We commence

The township of Canoe Creek frac
tional, containing only about eleven
sections. It is about eight miles long by
about one and a half miles wide. On an
average the greater part of it is level
land, some of which is very wet, arutlran
be used only for bay land and gracing
purposes. i ne earner setiieuienis were

so called by the Indians, as itr was tied

them were Moses yubbafAJones Carter,
J . M. Walker and Jas. Martin.
The first religious meeungs were held
in the houses of the settlers, and were
conducted by the Rev. Herman Scott, a
pioneer preacher of limited education, but
or indomitable character and energy.
The results of his labors may be seen yet,
as those of the old settlers still living,
who are members of the JJ. B. church.
were converted at the meet iocs held by
him. The first church was built about
one mile below Canoe Creek on the
farm of George Walker. It was sup
ported by the United Brethren
denomination. In 1868 the church was
deemed inadequate for the comfort of the
congregation that assembled, so an addi
tion was built, which was raised a short
time afterward and a much larger build
ing erected, which stood until 1888, when
it was torn down and built after a more
modern pattern on the farm of J. M.
Walker, three miles northwest of Hills
dale. It is provided with a steeple and
belfry and has a seating capacity of about
two hundred and fifty. There is a hand
some organ and upholstered furniture.
The Rv. Broadfoot is the presiding pas
tor. Next after the Canoe Creek church
was that of Betbesday. which was built
abont 1853 by the M. E. denomination.
The church is surrounded by a spacious
cemetery, whii h has some very imposing
monuments and is well supplied with
shrubbery and trees. The Mount Maria
cemetery on the farm of Jno. A. Liphardt
is not so large as Betbesday, but is con
veniently located two miles northwest of
Hillsdale. It was opened only a few
years ago and is always kept in a very
nice and presentable condition.
There are four school houses in the
township with a good average attend
ance, and at the annual examination they
stood well up in the average. Within
the past few years several teachers have
started in life with no other education
than that of these country schools.
IN THE WAT OK LITIGATION.
The township has never had any very
notorious sensations in a criminal point
of view, and but one suicide that of old
man Mason, who hung himself in 1883 in
Gerhardt's hall from the effects of heavy
drink. The McEniry case is known by
all residents of this vicinity, but for the
readers abroad we will give a brief review
of the case. It was begun about six
years ago. The township sued the Mc
Eniry brothers for damage done to a road
in the lower end of the town by an em
bankment which said EcEniry's had
thrown up in order to protect their farm
from the frequent floods. The case was
first tried before a justice of the peace, and
a verdict was rendered for the town. The
case was appealed to the circuit court
where the jury disagreed; at the second
trial the town was defeated. The appe
late court then reversed the decision, and
at the third trial in the circuit court the
town was successful. The McEnirys
then appealed to the appellate court, when
a decision was rendered in favor of
tbcra upon the technical point of
one of the boys not being a defendant.
The case was last spring settled, the de
fendants paving the costs of suit and tak
ing out the embankment. For this set
tlement the town paid said defendants
$300. it being considered that would be
cheaper than another trial. The case has
cost the town for attorney fees alone
about $1,500; the costs aggregate near

where the attorney fees and costs will

and was in a flourishing condition, al
though the burden had become irksome
to the society, and in 1886 by mutual
agreement the company. disbanded.

about the township. Next week we will
furnish a brief history of the village of
Hillsdale and the business thereof.

There is a new law enacted by the leg

radical change in our county board syss

Worried Abont Montana.
New York 6tr.
President Harrison's intimates candidly
confess that he is greatly troubled about
the coming elections in Montana and
Wash ngton territories. They have been
seeking something to assuage the anxiety
of the chief executive and to revive their
own topes of securing the votes of the
new s ales in aid of their plans to hold
the country in spite of a popular upris
ing against Hamsonism. Simultaneous
ly se v ral of the "inspired" journals an
nounce their plan. It is that if the secre
tary of the treasury will make a certain
ruling regarding the admission of lead
ore, the miners of the west will rush to
the support -of the administration and
sen.d tepublicans delegations to congress
from the new commonwealths. In
short resort is to be had to the old ex
pedient using partisan tariff adminis
trate i' as a bribe to voters. This is
what the Presn promises if the treasury
department will only make a partisan de
cision on a purely revenue question:
."If this m true and the decision is an
nounted durin the coming week, the
presu ent anda cabinet need not worry
about Montana? The mining population
of tint new state is not sitting up nights
worrj ing about a few federal offices, but
is worrying a great deal about the free
admission of lead. Stop this and set the
miners to work and redeem the promises
made by the republican orators last fall,
and Montana will again give a republican
majority. This is about the size of the
situation in Montana."
It i 4 not our purpose to take sides on
the lead importation question as part of
a political discussion. The issue is one
of law and fact, essentially judicial in its
nalur ) and to be decided now, as Cleve
land's administration surely would have
decided it, without any regard whatever
to its effect on partisan results.
The shame of the republican policies
of today is that journals claiming to be
patriotic and respectable should urge the
goveriment to adjudicate such a matter
with h view to carrying an election, in
stead of with the single determination to
do jut t ice under the law.
