Joseph F. Atwill, a Davenport attor
ney, was arrested Tuesday eveening and
locked np in jail on a charge of embezzle
ment, lie aftenvard gave bail and the
preliminary heari )g has not yet occurred.
The case involves Messrs. Chas. Hanson
and Fred Appelq list, of this city. The
accused made a statement to the Daven
port Tribune about the matter. He says
that he had a claim against the now de
funct Globe Flo company, "which he
filed in the name of Charles Hanson, of
this city, and whsn it came to trial the
assignee said tha. he knew of no such
man, but that be had business with Han
son & Applequist. The papers were then
made out and signed by Hanson & Appel
quist. The sum vaa lost under the stat
ue of limitation if&ys the Tribune:

turned over to Mr. Appelquist and to
this he says Mi. Appelquist is will

pelquist came ov r from Rock Island
yesterday moraine with his attorney, Mr.
pisen. and offered to indemnify Mr. At
will for all loss or trouble to which he has
been or will be put by Hanson. The
whole affair appearfe to be caused by some
trouble between ' r. Hanson and Mr.
Appelquist. Mr. Atwill had a number of
attorneys of this city and of Rock Island
go to him yesterday and offer their ser
vices, none of then believing him guilty.

A citizen from Peoria, who formerly
lived in Rock Island and was in the city
yesterday, observed with delight the Sec
ond: avenue paving progress. "That
work as far it has gone," said he, "is a
good deal better looking than it was in
Peoria at that early stage. It looks well
now, but wait until it is rolled, and
Rock Island will have the finest paves
ment in the state."
That's what the majoiity of our peo
ple are beginning to think, the farther
the work progresses. There are some of
course that are bard to satisfy and
hard to convert into the meth
ods and practices of a progres
sive age. They stand around and
shake their heads and point out defects,
etc., but they are coming around all right
and by and by they will take all the
credit upon themselves for the success of
the paving project.
The contractors suffered some little de
lay at the intersection of Second avenue
and Seventeenth street, owing to diffi
culty ia getting mscadam for the founda
tion, but it was received this morning
and there is again smooth sailing. The
paving between the street car tracks has
been pushed ahead to the middle of the
block bounded by Eighteenth and Nine
The Argus a few days aeo spoke of
the disposition on the part of down town
Second avenue property holders to peti
tion the council for an asphalt pavement.
There seems now to be a desire to have
the same brick pavement extended to the
plow works from Fourteenth street, the
limit of the district to be paved under the
present contract. If this should be
done, what a grand stretch of
paved thoroughfare it would make
nearly a mile. Let it be done
this fall, or as soon as the frost is out in
the spring at the outside. There is going
to be paving done on Twentieth and
Twenty third streets in the early spring
at the outside, and the lower end does
not propose te be outdone which is
Ex mayor Kimball, one of our oldest
residents, showed his public spirit yester
day, when he said, "I endorse this idea
of street paving most thoroughly, and I
hope it will spread all over the city. I
hayen't got much property here, only my
little borne out on Seventeenth street,but
if the time comes when the street past my
house can be paved, I shall sign a peti
tion to have it done, and if I can't
do better will sell my home and pay for
it." That's the kind of Ulk that makes
the town grow. Tnere is no danger of
Mr. Fimball having to sell his home.
The public improvements, that he is like
all good citizens advocating, will so en
hance the value of his property, that he
can afford to pave his share without its
crippling him. Mr. Kimball is just at
this stage the kind of a man Rock Island
can't get along without.
It is also a gratifying fact that the busi
ness porticn of the city is to have a sys
tem of substantial walks, according to or
dinance. One citizen diligently spread the
report yesterday that Mayor McConochie
had said the sidewalk ordinance need not
be respected, and no attention need be
paid to it. This report caused great in
dignation, and the mayor upon being
asked as to the truth of the assertion.
emphatically denied that he had ever
Second avenue will have as fine walks
as pavement before frost comes.

A singularly sad and terrible accident
occurred in Muscatine early this morning,
as the Golden Gate was getting in readi
ness to leave for this city with the excur

Two young ladies named Simmon and
Fala, aged about twenty years, were
walking along the C, R. I. & P. railroad
track on their way to join the excursion
ists. They were overtaken by a switch
engine, and although the engineer
shrieked his whistle and rang his bell
furiously, the ladies did not seem capable
of leaving the track. They appeared to
be riveted to the ground by fear at the
engine's approach, and though the loco
motive was reversed it struck them before
it could be stopped." Miss Simmon was
killed and her companion seriously in

parade day, and all the neighboring
cities help them do it. The Golden
Gate brought 400 people from Muscatine,
including several fire companies and a
band of music which were taken to Mo
