TlzLFA HOCK ISLAND AUGUS, TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, IE39.
THE DAILY AllGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Tcksdat, August 27, 1889.
Th Union It still doing Its leTel best
to Injure the ciun of charitj m it re
lates to the suffering miners at Spring
Valley and Iclnity. It m much m says
this morning that the miners are not en
titled to sympathy, and virtually adviaea
Rock Island citizens to refrain from ten
dering a helping hand. We are glad,
however, to know that the Union' sel
fish views are not endorsed, as the con
tributions which are being made, testify,
Rock Island rrsponded generously to
the Johnstown sufferers, and it is not
likely it will allow people to starve with
in its own state without contributing its
share of relief.
Forakck, of Ohio, who is running tor
governor for the third time, is in trouble
with the negro voters. They are op
posed to his reelection, and say that be is
not friendly to their race. A call has
been issued for a convention of the col
ored voters of Ohio to dclermiue what
they will do in the state election. They
denounce Foraker for many things, and
no doubt, when in convention asse rab
bled, will declare tbey will do their best
to defeat him. Foraker is a sort of a
vain glorious fellow, anyway, and is a
fair representative of pomp and pride,
His defeat will not paralyze the govern
ment, though he thinks it would, no
JnxiiNo from the great variety of pic
tures published of widow Sarah Althae
Hill Terry, one would conclude that she
patronized the photograph galleries quite
as liberally as did our loved Fracis Fol-
som Cleveland. Imon.
The above is an uncalled for and con
temptible insinuation against one of
America's noblest women, and we are
surprised that any reputable journal
could stoop so low as to publish it.
While Mrs. Cleveland was noted for her
teauty and as first lady of the land, her
photographs were in great demand, still
her woman'y virtues and good common
sense were the characteristics which en
deared her to the people. Why should
she be dragged into public print analog-
oualy with the notorious California wo
man can hardly be comprehended.

the trouble aiiout the parade:

London, Aug. 27. London is an inland
town and promises to remain such for some
time to coma. AH communication with the
outside world is as, completely cut off as
though the Thames had flried up and been
turned into a farm. The great ships lying
at the docks can neither load nor discharge
their cargoes, and tbe immense traffic of tbe
greatest commercial city of the world lies at
the mercy of men commercially rated at f I
day. Up to yesterday the strike of tbe dock
laborers bad been regarded by the London
populace, not indeed without interest, but
with that languid interest which is felt in
affairs which, concern other people and not
ourselves. Rut this is all over and now tbe
strike and its consequences touch every man,
woman and cbdd in this great city. No
meat arrived in London yesterday.

electric light companies were filled with or

avert such a calamity, and they have large
ly increased their force. So far the gas
stokers remain at work, but there is no tell
ing at what minute they may stop work.
Th Giant Conscious of His Tower.
Although the strikes so far include only
a few industries not directly connected with
ti-ansjiortation, there is scarcely an im
portant trade carried on in London iu which
there are not loud muttering of discontent.
Tbe truth is tliat the workinguion nave been
taught by the dock laborers what an im
mense power for evil tbey hold in their
hands, and they ore anxious to exercise it if
only to show tbeir masters that tbey possess
it Strikes are talked of where a week ago
there was no thought of a grievance, and
there U a conviction that the end is not yet
An I navailing Conference
Another conference was held yesterday
between the managers of tbe docks and tbe
laborers' delegates, but no agreement was
reached. Arbitration of tbeir differences
was again proposed by tbe representatives of
the strikurs, but the employers refused to
listen to any proposal to submit their case to
the hands of third parties for decision.

A murky Irish Woman Fortified In the
Famed Castle of Monanlmy.
Loxdok, Aug. 27. Mr. Balfour has a job
on his hanils on an estate near Mitchellstown
which promises to give him no little trouble.
Tbe landlord with tbe aid of tbe police has
been for a week trying to evict Mrs. Jane
Herry, a widow whose husband died less
than a year ago. She cau't pay the rent
and diwsn't proose to move, and as the
house she occupies with her children is the
once fatnod castle of Monanimy, with walls
seven feet thick against which tbe battering
rams of the police are of no avail, she bids
landlord and bailiffs defiance. After ham
mering away at tbe old castle with their
ram for forty-eight hours, the police sent
word to Mrs. Rorry by the parish priest
that unless she surrendered, they would
bring up a battery of artillery and bombard
her fortress. To this threat toe plucky lit
tle widow replied they might do as tbey
pleased but she would not vacate. As this
occurred last Thursday and no artillery has

Enter the Bold Highwayman.
As tli stag was running along at a lively
gait through the dense forest, when within
about two miles of the station, a . lone high
wayman jumped out in front of it and,
pointing two big navy revolvers at the
driver, commanded him in good old western
style to throw up his hands, and extended
the same order te tbe four passengers Inside
the coach, with the furtber provision that

Well Meant, bnt Disastrous,
One of tbe passengers went down in bis
pocket, but instead of bringing up his pocket
book, n clenched a pistol in his hand and
began firing at the robber. Instead of be
ing overcome by the suddenness of his in
tended victim's move, tbe robber returned
the fire. The driver whipiied up his horses
into a mad run, but the aim of the highway
man was true. D. Mackechar, of the First
National bank of Minneapolis, was shot
through the check, and another bullet went
through his leg.
A l'aener Badly Wounded.
Another passenger named A. O. Fleisch

The stage horses continued ou a run, and
the wounded man was left to take his chances
with the robber. The villain threatened to
kill Fleischbein, but finally desisted after se
curing $.T7 and the victim's watch and chain.
The wounded man lay bleeding in the road
for three hours liefore any one courageous
enough to go to his succor was secured. He
mas taken to a hospital at Bessemer, but loss
or blood was so great as to blight all hope of
recovery. Physicians say be will not live.
Doubt of MarKechar'a Recovery.
Mr. MacKecbar was taken to Eagle IUver
and Ireated and from there taken to bis
borne at Minneapolis. There are grave
doubts .is to bis recovery, too. There were
two other passtmgors ou the coach, but
neither of them was hurt They were Will

Frederick D .u:lss, Unite I States minis
ter ai-creditd to Hayti, called at the state
department yesterday morning and informed
Ai-tinc (Secretary of State Wharton that be
held him, If in readiness to denart at oaoe
for his post of duty in Hayti ilr. Wharton
informed Sir. Pougla-M that in the present
unsettled con lition of the ppuntry it was not
tbe intention of the United States to send
him to Hayti, as there was no gjvernroent
to which he coull be accredited without
placing the United Btates in the position af
recognizing one or the other of tbe con tend -factious.
In view of the developments
of tbe pa-t few days Mr. Wharton thought
that affairs would so shape themselves that
in tlie near future a stable government, the
re-u'tof eit her an election or an acquies
cence in Hippolyte'sosoendancy, would arise,
to which Mr. Douglass could with propriety

The state department officials are well
pleased at the outcome of tbe Haytien
trouble, fur it will very likely obviate th
necssity for sending Oen. Lew Wallace and
Beverly 1 ucker as commisedoners from ehis
country to look after the interests of United
States citizens there. The necessity for this
commission grew out of the fact of the inti
macy and possible combination between Le
gitime and tbe French, to the detriment of
American interests. Tbe success of Legitime
would doubtless have emphasized the neces
sity for tbe commission, but now, with the
government under the control of Hippolyte
and bis adherents, who were opposed by the
French, there is not much danger, it is
thought by department officials, of an unsafe
and unwarrantable expansion of French in
fluence over tbe island, for it is belived that
Hippolyte will maintain the absolute Inde
pendence of bis government from any for
