CONCEIVING CANOE CREEK.
Biography of Hone of the Leading
Citiseaa or the I'per Km Twi.
IlrLLsD.vi.K, Aug. 6. In our serial
this week we desire to present to
the readers of the Augur a brief
biography of two of our prominent
citizen. Mr. Alex Ashdown, whom we
shall first present, is a citiwn of this
country by adoption, da is one of the
leading and enterprising farmers of
Canoe Creek township, owns a well ira
proved farm of 120 acres thrive miles
north of Hillsdale. His career as a farm
er has been above the average, and what
his present position is he owes to bis in
domitable perseverance and good judg
ment in his business transactions, as well
as a Ions and hard struggle so well
known to the pioneers, of any country.
He was born in County of Kent, England,
April 21, 182 1. and is a son of Edward
and Nancy Ashdown. He was reared on
a farm in his native country, but finding
that bis labors were no more fruitful
than his sire's before him, he set sail for
the United States, leaving London. June
20, 1857, taking passage on the .lames K.
Wheeler. He landed in New York after
a passage of forty five days and be came
at once to Itork Island county and locat
ed in this township, renting farms for a
period of seven years. At the end of
this period lio bought the farm which is
now his residence, but which lias greatly
improved by bis labors IIe is particular
ly interested in fruit raising, but does not
by any means eon line his latiors to this
alone, as the livestock and grain houses
to be seen wiil present to the visitor
the fact that he is a most thorough and
systematical farmer. He whs marrieu to
Charlotte Martin, a native of Kentsliire
Hills, England, in 1850. She was born
May 2'J, lf-Dl, and has been a faithful
companion to her husband through the
bard struggle in the earlier days, to their
now prosierous and happy old age. They
have eight children, all married with the
exception of Emma, the youngest child
ueonre. me oldest, is a ranchman in
Wyoming; Eliza, the widow of Joseph
Kohinson, now residing in Nebraska
Henry, a renter of the homestead. At
fred, residing in Monona county, Iowa
Fanny, wife of W. O. McConnell. Clara.
wife of Q. W. Liphard'. Katie, wife of
J. M. Martin, all residents of Canoe
Creek township, l'olitically, Mr. A. is
an independent democrat, and a member
of the U. II. church.
Mr. Henry Fender, whose biography
we also desire to plitce lM'fore our readers,
is a member of one of the leading gro
cery firms of Hillsdale. His past life
needs no commendation from us; it
speaks for itself, as he has the full confi
dence of all who know bun. He was
born in Cambria county, Pa.. .Tune 12,
1841), is a son of Frederick and Elizabeth
(Kiper) Fender. He was reared on a
farm in bis native state, and at an early
age started in life for himself by working
in the iron works. In lli!) he came to
Prairie City. Ills., where he resided eleven
months, then went to To nek a, Kan.,
where he remained for three years,
when be returned to his native stale, re
remaining a short time, and then made a
second journey to Illinois, this time com
ing to Hock Island county. He remained
only nine months and again returned to
Pennsylvania, and in the spring of 1881
took up his permanent abode in Canoe
Creek township, and is today one of its
leading and most popular citizens. In
Sept. 1882 he, in partnership with Henry
Wiggins, bought the stock of goods then
owned by Shuck fc Duncan, and has
been a meiuticr of the firm ever since, al
though changing partners several times.
The name of the present firm is Fender &
Nundln. Mr. F. was married in 1877 to
Mary Livingston, of Summerset county,
Pennsylvania, but in the terrible epe
demic of diphtheria which prevailed
through that part of the country in 1880
bis companion was claimed as a victim of
the dreaJful disease. He was married a
second time in May 1882, to Flora Wig
gins of this place. Two children have
blesHed their home both boys named
Franklin and Harry, but in 1885 the sad
messenger of death claimed little Frank
lin. Politically Mr. Fender is a staunch
democrat, and a member of the order of
Modern Woodmen of America, holding
membership at Hillsdale. He has for
several years been the banker of the local
A r. reat Katlroad
Not long ago Mr. George II. Inniels,
the general passenger agent of the New
Yoik Central & Hudson River railroad,
in extending an invitation to foreigners
to visit this country, d reeled their at
tention to the fart that the United States
of America is the greatest country on
earth, peopled with sixty millions
of the most civilized anil enter
prising lieople on the globe; that the
New York Central railroad is the greaU
est railroad on earth the only four
track road in the world; that it started
from the largest city on the continent,
passed through the richest and most
prosperous region, touching the largest
cities in the interier; i the great trunk
line and direct route to that great catar
act, Niagara Falls, and that in all re
spects it reveals more of the resources
and riches of America in less time, with
more safety, and under more luxurious
conditions than any other route. There
is much of the above not only for for
eigners, who want to see this country un
der favoroble conditions, but for our own
restless and moving people. The New
York Central & Hudson River railroad is
the outgrowth of a luxurious and pros
perous civilization and one of its
greatest engineering triumphs. As in
well known, it is the only line
from the west to New York that lands
its passengers in that city without ferry
ing them across the North riyer. Its
spacious and magnificent station in the
heart of the city has been for years not
only the pride of New York, but alnsting
monument to the foresighted liberality
and enterprise of that great organizer
and founder of the New York Centra) &
Hudson River Railroad system, Commo
dore Vanderbilt. The limited trains of
this line jy the finest in the world, anil
ts general accommodations for the
travelling public are onlv known and ap
preciated by that large portion of it who
have been over the line and enjoyed them.

Appearances are deceitful. We ac
knowledge having been practically sold
by one of these deceitful appearances.
We supposed we were reading the Went
ern Plmnnan yesterday, and gleaning
from its pages, when we transferred to
the columns of the IHtpntch with credit,
certain facta and figures about "consoli.
elation." and which we headed "War like
Figures." Now the fact is. J. W. Warr
did't promulgate them. The periodical
we had in band was the new lluilding
Association Advocate, just started in Rock
Island, and edited by . II. Guyer, of the
Rock Island Building association. We
don't know who to apoligize to, Warr or
Guyer. or the general puhlic. These two
periodicals are sufficiently alike in ap
pearance to fool any one who had not yet
become intimately acquainted with the
Advocate, which is only a baby yet, with
a single issue before the public. Another
catastrophe in connection with this mis
take, is the fact that we led our friends of
the Union into duplicating the blunder.

HALEY USED HIS GUN.

"Met 'Ka l'p" la Omaha.
The Omaha Bee of Wednesday morn
ing has the following concerning Jack
Haley, a well known tri-city printer, who
has occasionally worked in this city:
Cries of "Don't shoot! For God's sake
don't shoot!" followed by a pistol shot
attracted a large crowd to Jul. Itothery s
saloon, at the corner of Eleventh and
Harney streets last night about 10 o clock.
"Ruddy ' O Weill, a man wen Known
to the sporting fraternity ana tne
police, fell headlong to the floor, bleeds
ing profusely from a wound in the
head. A large crowd quickly sur
rounded the .place, and in the confu
sion the man who had done the shoot
ing made his escape. It was learned
that be is a printer from Davenport.
U.. named Jack Haley, and he is de
scribed as being a short, very thick set
man, witn tiara complexion and very
heavy black mustache. He is about
twenty-eight years old. The patrol wag
on was at once called and conveved
U iNeill to M. Joseph s hospital.
I'.d Kothery says the two men were in
his place earlier in the evening, and
Weill asked Haley to "set 'em up
Kolhcry told him not to ask that, as Ha
ley was a stranger to him (O'Neill ) They
soon went out without having had any
quarrel or dispute. Liter, Roihery says.
lie was iH-ninil the Oar when he beard a
pisioi snapped twice and some one ex
claim, "Don't shoot !" followed by a shot.
ami 1 1 Weill staggered in the door. Al
attention was directed to O'Neill, who
was bleeding profusely. Another version
of the affair, and probably the correct
one, as given iy an eye witness, is as
ine two men, i risen ana Haley, were
in the saloon for some time during the
evening. O'Ncil had been trying to per
suade Haley to "set 'em up," and spend
his money. Haley refused, and a heated
argument ensued. Considerable feeling
was displayed by both sides, and finally
Haley started for the door. Tie stopped
at the door with one foot on the step out
side and the other inside the saloon. He
thpn pulled his revolver and fired at
O'Ncil. afterwards making bis escape ont
of the door.
At the hospital O'Neil was attended by
a physician, who, after examination, an
nounced that the ball had struck directly
on top of the head and passed around
directly under the scalp, coming out
about three inches from where it entered.
The skull was not fractured. The man
was very weak from loss of blood, but the
doctor was of the opinion that he would
soon recover. At midnight he was rest
ing easy, with good prospects of recov
ery. At last accounts Haley had not
I'rrarlisrbrrn in Trouble .caia.
The Moline Ih'mmtrh hs word from
lie Claire of another exciting episode,
which transpired in that village on Mon
day evening. West Rambo, the well
known river pilot, and the Rev. Mr.
Orew.the young Campliellite diviue.being
the belligerents. The cause of the trou
ble, as reported to us, was that the
preacher had been talku.g to Hum bo's
wife about his drinking propensities. and
she in turn gave West a rehearsal. He
was anxious to learn the source of her
informa' ion. She referred him to the
Campbellite preacher. West forthwith
went down to see what he could find, and
was not long in finding the preacher.and
the preacher was not long finding out
what was wanted, and from his appear
ance after the fracas ended, it will lie
some time before he will want to inter
fere with West or his affairs. Drew is
having a hard life in trying to bring about
reforms in his own way.
