AN ODD SCHEME.
BIG KNIFE THIEVERY.
We were approached a few days ago to become a party to
a scheme which was explained to us in the following langoage:
"We (the schemers) will place a half dozen men in your city and will
visit every house, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the holder an; time within six months' to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3.00 a dozen
Cuhinets and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth $4, f 5 or $6; we will swear it's worth
whatever you say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
2i ri nts that we collect. Oli, yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
Hut ;U a great scheme as the frame you give away costs (12.00 per hun
dred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2 (Kl per dozen, flay the extra
picture and frame would cost an additional 25cU, through our scheme he
would get $2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grapher hut we are hound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
that he will continue in business, but he will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains."
It is needless to say that RASMUsWEVdoelinefi to employ peddlers and
tkamph to wiihk such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
create business are:
Int. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
21. We guarantee satisfaction.
JM. Our Gallery contains more and better instruments, back-grounds
and all appliances for making I'hotos, twice over, than all the other Gal
leries in the city combined.
Whenever such inducements can be offered it is unnecessary to employ
"Tramp Ticket Fakirs," but that they are now being employed here in
Hock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

That there are two distinct classes of
thieves in successful operation in Rock
Island at present is demonstrated by the
different classes of crime of that sort that
has been committ id in the past week.
The professional clever scheming burg
lars who entered two saloons here and
one at Milan in succession, constitute one
class, and the sneak thieves who entered
entered J. T. Nofisker's hardware and
cutlery store on Twentieth street last
night form another. The last named
thieverv was of a peculiar nature and
could hardly be classed as a burglary,
When the time lor opening the store
came this moraine the front door was
found slightly ajat and the bolt turned,
but not in the keeper. The other one of
the double doors w is solidly bolted. The
front show case hal been relieved of for
ty boxe9 twenty dozen of knives, in
eluding pearl hand es, tortoise shell han
dies and common jack-knives, the entire
lot beine valued bv Mr. Noftsker at
$100. The mom; drawer ws jerked
out. but found empty. The safe
was not 'disturliel and it was with
pleasant surprise that Mr. Koftsker
found no stoves or grindstones bad been
carried off. Ther: are two theories as to
how the thieves elfected an entrance, as
nothing was mutilated. One is, and the
one Mr. N. thinks most likely is, that
they slipped in the back door during the
evening, hid and were locked in, and
then opened the front door from the in
side by pulling ihe chain bolts; the
other, and the mre plausible explana
tion is. that the door was not properly
locked, that the bolt did not go Into the
keeper last night, that it was accidentally
found open and robbed. Had the police
man on that beat t one his duty in obey
ance to Marshal Miller's orders, and tried
the door, as all otb :rs, several times dur
ing the night, be might have prevented
the robbery. But as some of the knives
had Mr. Kroftsker's name etched on the
blade, the perpetrators of the deed may
yet be apprehended.
It was the saloon of John Hinderer at
Milan that was burglarized Wednesday
James Ray was run in as a tramp by
Marshal Miller ard fined $3 and costs,
M. W. Lester was arrested by Officer
Sexton for intoxication, and fined $5
A serious disturbance in the family of
James Cox. 2106 Fourth avenue, got an
unfortunate and unnecessary ventilation
in Justice Cooke's court, through the ar
rest by Officer Cary of Thomas Cox, an
industrious youn; man, on a warrant
sworn out by Lis father, James Cox,
charging him witt assault. The father
was under the infl lence of liquor when he
preferred the charge, and when he ar
rived at his proper senses withdrew it
and the case was dismissed. Cox while
drunk, bad attempted to strike his little
son with a plaster cast. Thomas, the
older brother intet fered and seizing his
father held him, his mother telling him
to do so until he had realized that he
could be prevente 1 from usine violence
toward his youi.ger children. In the
struggle the old n an fell and enraged at
his son's just interference, swore out the
warrant that he was ashamed of when he
recovered his natural senses again.

town and Vicinity Clara Barton's
The sum of $4,000,000 in cash, in ad
dition to supplies of immense value1 has
been forwarded to Johnstown, for the re
lief of the sufferers from the great flood.
A very large part of this relief, including
that sent from Rock Island, has been
distributed through" the agency of the
Red Cross society. The figures convey
some idea of the immensity of the work.
It is no matter for surprise that it has
been impossible to keep everything in ex
act order at the headquarters of this as
sociation, but it is really surprising, on
the other hand, that things have been
kept in as good shape as they have.
The work of returning complete ac
knowledgement for all aid received is now
being completed by Clara Barton, presi
dent of the National Red Cross, by the
following circular letter, sent out to all
places furnishing relief:
Johnstown. Pa., July 18. 189. Dear

valley, and we feel tbat you have honored

distribution of your donations.
We bave endeavored, although tardily
sometimes when we were overcrowded
with relief work, to acknowledge all of
these donations, but in order that we may
check everything and render a complete
report, we would ask each donor to fill
out the enclosed blank, giving the num

Last evening occurred the first of the
series of subscri tion concerts given by
the Second Regicieul band of Daven
port, and under tl.e direction of Prof
Jacob Strasser at Hincher s Elm street
concert garden . There was a large at

many more were on their w ay, when the
storm came up and turned them back
An excellent programme had been pre
pared, emuracin such selections as
"Dragon's Call" Ly Eilenberg; an over

But only thrte numbers had been
played, when the rain drove everybody
from the grounds
Mr. Hincher d eserves great praise for
the enterprise shown in getting up these
concerts and securing the best band in
the northwest, as also in seeing that do
objectionable features are allowed. The

illuminated last evening, and the public

In reply to the inter ocean yarn
about A. P. McGuirk, of Davenport.and
the Cronin murder, M. V. Gannon has
written from Omaha to the Davenport
Democrat-Gazette as follows:
The paragraph in the Chicago Inter-
Ocean of Monday, referring to me is an
intamous, and it Pears marks or being a
malicious lie. Further than to be on
friendly terms with any of them, to work
unceasing niuht and day to place the
Irish question upon an elevated and die
nified plane; to be prodigal of my time
and money to the neglect of my business
and family, I have done no work of any
kind. I assure you. who, I judge, be
lieve in my truth and in my honor, tbat I
never knew who composed the triangle
until after the unfortunate and lamenta
ble death of Dr. Cronin, and then only
when I saw the names in the newspapers.
True, I have been, and I am, a friend f
Alexander Sullivan. I admired bis brains
and his fortitude, and innocent man as
tielieve him to be, I never admired him
half so much as now for the manly, aye,
the noble way, in whici he has withstood
the storms of hate and passion, which
have lately been directed against him
The rest of the paragraph I treat with
contempt. I have not had, nor have 1,
any knowledge of the missions of others,
whose name are mentioned, previously
nor now, to Chicago or elsewhere, upon
the business indicated in the article. I
conclude by saying that be who would
regenerate his native land must expect
envy, hate, and all manner of u ni b ant
ableness, but having deyoted one's best
energies to the cause of freedom, he is
weak and a coward who turns from his
purpose because of such things, and I
trust that the like shall never be said
Yours faithfully, M. V. Gannon
What They Found.

Fifth avenue and .Nineteenth street was

placed there by the men in the employ of
Henry Housman, who put it up in 1S56.
