The Union holds that the Holmes syn
dicate must give public notice before it
can ask the council for its rights up Elm
street. As a mailer of fact, it is really
not the Holmes syndicate that is pre
senting the petition. It is the property
holders who auk that the Holmes' people
be required to extend their line in con
formity with the provisions of their or
dinance. The Holmes syndicate has the
right of way already, and it is only nec
essary that the formalities of law be
complied with to take possession of it. It
would be a rather one-sided proceeding
for the council after holding over the
head of the Holmes company the power
to compel it to build to withhold its con.
sent to its building of its own accord.
The electric road, if it is anxious to
build, can reach the city without coming
along Elm street just as it can get into
the business portion of town without
trespassing on Mr. Holmes' Second ave
nue property. The Akcus, while con
fessing a preference to the present seven
and a half minute horse car service to
Moline, to a twenty minute electric ser
vice, is nevertheless emphatically in favor
of seeing an electric line built, but It likes
rather to see fair play.
Oen. Supt. 8 hnitger of the Holmes'
syndicate returned from Chicago last
nlv'lit, where be has been in conference
with President Holmes, the result of
which la that track laying on Elm street
will begin at once inside of twenty-four
hours. Mr. Holmes expressed great sur
prise when he learned of the attempt of
the protectors of the electric road to ob
tain a right to use the tracks of his com
pany, and stated that he hail never heard
of surh a thing, but had full confidence
in the city council of Rock Inland, to the
extent of believing that it would play no
part In assisting in any such injustice.

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to ! incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies.and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable. Sci

tional disease, and therefore requires con
stitutional treatment. Halls Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F.J. Chenev A

lanlly lx-n called to ordur when Congreas

nition of tli rhair for a resolution by which
the riH-iMiipniHiit heartily thanked the ad
ministration of I'reajdent Harrison for the
bonor it hail conferred upon the Orand
Army in appointing Corporal Tanner com
mlmioner of permiona, endorsing hia manage
ment of the 1'iiraau that had been (rented
for the benefit of the soldiers and tailor of
tho star, and denouncing the "bitter and
malignant" critii-ixmsof a portion of toe press
upon hU official conduct. Applause greeted
the resolution, but lien. Bamum, of New
York, as qui kly upon his feet with a sub--
Uitute, dat-luring that notwithstanding the
(wiults of an unfriendly press the encamp
I lent declared its belief in the integrity of
IhecommisHioner, and expr.n-el ita approval
of bis efforts to do all for the soldiers ami

It siigestel, however, that a committee

Campbell Stands l for Tanner.
An animated diaoiiasion of three hours'
duration ensued. Congressman Campbell,
of Kansas, voiced the general sentiment as
expressed by a score of delegates in the fol-
the lollo ill lHIIllltge:
For fifteen yean we have been def-larinn,
and otliors bare been uttering, a sentiment
that the country ran never pay the debt due
to the old oliliera, but Corporal Tanner is the
flrst officer that has made that sentiment a
practical reality. 1 believe that it Is the hitch
doty of this encampment to sustain him in
working out that sentiment. If the (Irand
Army of the Kepublic ever had a duty to per
form, looking neither to the r.ght nor to the
left, to the committee that Is investigating
the working of the pension bureau or to the
commissioner himself. It Is now. and we oiivhl
to pa this resolution. The substitute differs
with It in only one particular. It expresses a
belief In the integrity of Comrade Tanner and
would not influence the action of the commit
tee charged with the Investigation. It may be
better than an Indorsement like that offered
In the original resolution, but we should make
our Indorsement strong enough. The original
resolution expresses our sentiments exactly.
If Tanner Is dishonest or has done any crim
inal ai t we will find it out when the commit
tee makes its rep rt. The presumption of law
Is that every man Is lunecent until he is
proved guilty, and an far as I am concerned I
will make that presumption go to the fullest
extent lu this ca,-e.
. In the debate that followed one delegate
declared that he would not dare to go back
to the soldiers of Minnesota after harming a
hair of Tanner's bead, any more than to ride
through a band of Sioux Indians with their
war-paint on. The encampment, he nrged,
thould ataiii by Tannor until something
wrung had been proven against bitn.
The Opposition Heard.
Oeu. Wagner, of V hdndelphia, took the
ground that both resolution and substitute
was a club in the hands of Tanner's enemies.
The enrnmpment ought not to force the ad
ministration to suspend a necessary investi
gation. Another du legato, in the course of a lengthy
I was in Washington last week, and I heard
It charged upon the streets and everywhere
else that men emp oyed in the bureau were all
getting their cases mail-special and taken up
ImiueUiately and re-r:tted much high -r. while
the pfior devils of the rank and II le have to
stand hack and wait. I told tle-m that it was
a He, hut if he has done tli.it. and we the
orlgiual rt so utlon. we indorse such action on
his part. The substitute Is hrond enough. This
encampment knows nothing of the details of
Tanner's mork, and rannot pass Judgment
upon it. We may Is-lieve it is all right, hut
we do not know It. If we pass the original
resolution, and the committee of investigation
should exonerate him, the opposition press
wouiu eay that the administration dare not
oppose the O. A. K., and they would have good
reason to say It.
Tho Corporal Talks.
Corporal Tanner himself took the floor at
this point and In an imnioued speec'.i de
clared that he not only courted but de
manded an investigation of his administra
tion of the pension detatrtment.
The Iteanlutlon That Waa Adopted.
Ultimately the substitute of Gen. liurnum
was amended to read as follows:
That we thank the president of the I nlted
Slatis for the aptomtment of our comrade
Jamea Tanner as commissioner of pension,
and that notwithstanding the assault man
him we declare our complete contldeiice In his
Integrity and our approval of his avowed pur
pose to do all that Is possihla to tie done under
the laws of the land for the veterans of the
war. and will, him we ask for the fullest in
vestigation of the management nt his nic.

The One-Cent Kate Again.
Hearty approval of the action of the corn
, niander-m-chief and the department com
rades, ts bo bad endeavored to secure a one
con t rate to the present encampment, was
expressed, and the committee having t-hnrge
of the encampment to lie held at Iloaton
was Instructed to eurly secure a pledge from
the hotel kectien thai no higher rate than
that given to the traveling public be charged
to tlie delegate. In the event of no such
pledge being obtained, the adjutant general,
in connection with the council of adminis
tration, was authorised to change the loca
tion of the encampment at least three months
before the regular data of meeting to any
locality where reasonable rates could be se
cured. A lengthy report, reviewing the differences
between the Sons of Veterans and post sys
tem, recommended thi.t the former be recog
nized and that all sons of Union soldiers be
urged tob.-couie identified with it This was
The M'ouaan's Keller Corps.
A proMnition to indorse the order known
as the "indies of the U. A. K." created a
commotion. Violent opposition was ex
pressed by delegates favorable to the Wom
an's Keli.-f corsi, a resolution for the in
dorsement of m hich was also before the en
campment, and meeting with much opposi
tion, on the ground that it was not in line
with the principles of the order.
An Appeal from the Ladles.
The privilege of the floor waa granted to
Mrs. Hurall I'lummer, of Michigan; Mrs.
Cora Day Young, of Ohio, and Mrs. Emma
R Lowd, of Massachusetts All three pleaded
eloquently for the relief corps. Mrs. Pium
mer eulogiznd (fen. Alger, and this caused a
delegate to jump upon a chair and shout:
"I see Chin. Alger over there, and we want to
know whether he reciprocates or not" Amid
shouts from everyliody Oeu. Alger arose and
said it was none of the committee's business.
A Compromise Adopted.
tSeveral delegates declared thai the Grand
Army wanted no morenuxilliary associations
and threatened to retire if the resolution as
presented were adopted. A motion to refer
Dnck the matter to the committee on resolu
tions was ilefeatud, (fens, rlberman and
Alger voting aye and Corporal Tanner no.
At last the resolution was so modified as to
bid "God speed" to the work of tho organisa
tions, and in this shnpc it was adopted.
Miscellaneous llnalneas Attended to.
For the balance of thedity theencaninment
devoted itself to routine business. It was
decided to appropriate the sum of J 1,000 an
nually or the maintenance of th Grant
cottage on Mount McGregor, to be expanded
under the ampule of the New York depart
ment It a as decided that in all the nfilicial
docu men's of . the ordu tho words "sailors
and marines" should tie ad Je J to the word
Gen. Alger's resolution diprecating the
practice of turning Memorial ay into a day
of festivity was unanimously adopted.
By another resolution Vetera is of the navr
were permitted to add an uncbor to the
Grand Army badge.
It was decided that as the 1 tilitarr Teleg
raphers' corps constituted a p lit of the Un
ion army, and as that body ha, 1 been ignored
by congress, It was the sense cf the encamp
ment that congress should recocnire the
status of such corps by apprcpriate legisla
At 6:30 p. m. the encampm nt adjourned
for the day.

in tbe meeting of the America i I? ir associa

London, Aug. Si. Balfour's promise to
bring in a bill for the endowmeni of an Irish
Roman Catholic university, coupled with
Parnell's immediate acceptance of tbe pro
posal, creates almost a fianio among the
Liberal leaders, who see that this new de
parture of the Tory government means the
disruption of their party. It is not certain
that 1'ariiell has reached some sort of an
understanding with Lord Salisbury's gov
ernment, and it is even stated that tbe Par
nellites will support the Tory prereier at the
next election in return for concessions which
will practically amount to home rule, and a
land law which will quite effectually throw
the landlords in Ireland overboard.
Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows.
This change of front on the part of Lord
Salisbury is certain to lose him the support
of the UUter nit-bibera, but he will probably
pirry with Mm all but a very few of tbe
Conservative memtiers and the Unionists,
while t)e addition to his forces of tbe solid

are more for home rule than for the.means
of attaining it will undoubtedly increase

The Liberals Not rerfeetlv Happy.
All of the details of the agreement entered

8eculation. The Liberal leaders held a
meeting yoterday, at which Harcourt made
a speech congratulating tbe Liberal party
upon having successfully proselyted tbe Tory
government. Few of bis associates, how
ever, shared Sir William's cheerfulness, and
their joy at finding their own principles now
supported by tbe Tories is not a little tern,
pered by the certainty that this support will
keep tbe Tories in power indefinitely and
The lifter Men Furious.
It is understood that the government and

was the intention of the government to take
the course outlined by Balfour, bat the Ul

were given assurances by tbe government
that there was no intention to sanction the

themselves grossly deceived. They take no

A Meeting at Belfast.
A crowded meeting of Protestants was
held at Belfast Inst night to protest against

Bessemer, Mich., Aug. 20. The great
man hunt for Wisconsin's famous lone high
wayman is in full cry in Gogebic county, tbe
scene of "Black Bart's" latest and most vil
lainous outrage, but tbe hunt seems hopeless.
The desperado has by far the better of tbe
outlook and the choice of thousands of im
penetrable hiding places in au area of . over
1,000 square miles of the wildest forest coun
try on tbe earth. All is excitement along
the great iron range, and while all sorts of
rumors are afloat it is safe to say that not a
single clue to the location of tbe robber and
murderer has been found by tbe small army
of men who are scouring the great wild for
est ith Winchester rifles, shot-guns and
six-shooters. It is reasonable to suppose
that tbe hunted man is yet within a radius
of fifty miles of Lake O.igebic, the scene of
his crime, but he is well provisioned, is a
thorough woodsman, is supplied with hunt
ing and fishing tackle, and might remain
uncaptured till tbe end of time in that small
territory though a thousand men pursued
Sheriff Foley and His Hloodhoond.
Nothing has been heard from Sheriff Da
vid Foley since be started the Indian blood
hounds on the trail, after "Black Bart" had
secured a start of at least thirty-six Lours.
His footprints were followed for five miles
through the dense pines, through lialsam
brush, and through cedar swamps to an old
exploring ramp, where the search had to be(
discontinued. Sheriff Foley hurried away
to the Bad River Indian reservation, where
he engaged a Chippewa buck, known as Hon
est John, to go on the trail with tao famous
half wolf half bloodhound dogs, Tbe sheriff,
with old woodsmen, tbe Indian, and several
deputies again took up tbe old northeasterly
trail, and are now buried deep in the dan
gerous woods between Lake Gogebic and
Identity of the Holder.
That the man w ho held up the stage last
Monlay is the same individual who, single
handed, robbed the Milwaukee Northern and
Wisconsin Central trains at Ellis Junction
and Cadott, there now remains little doubt
He is a German, and there seems to be little
question but that he is Reimund Holzhey. A
detective named Thurston, from Wausau,
Wia, arrived here last evening, and says he
has been dogging the highwayman ever
since the Cadott robliery, and that the fel
low came to Gogebic from Cadott through a
forest, a distance of nearly 200 miles.
Places Where He Stopped.
Ho was at the hotel at Lake Gogebic and at
Gogebic station, five miles distant, many
times during the few days preceding tbe rol
bery and murder. He visited the store of L.
P. Burquin at the station several times and
invested in fishing tackle and provisions. At
times he appeared us a tramp, at others be
was well dressed, but he never was short of
funds. Tbe detectives have found the spot
where the robber cooked bis provisions, all
of which he prepared in readiness for tbe
long siege he knew be must u.idergo. After
the crime he took flight with a grain sack
full of food. While dealing with Burquin
tbe highwayman openly declared he was not
looking for work and be could make money
easier than by toil
All Depends I pon Foley.
Night and day men are resting on their
arms on every road and trail for miles in ev
ery direction. They are all anxiety for news
from Sheriff Foley. His long absence leads
to the hope that Honest Johu's bounds have
struck the trail, and that the sheriff is fol
lowing them with certain show of success.
Yet no one knows where Foley is. He is a
determined, cool, and courageous offioer, aud
has the full coutidence of all the people ou
the rangx. Tbe reward of $L,0 is the only
one yet offered, but there was a large meet
ing of citizens Wednesday night, at which it
was decided to petition tbe governor to offer
a reward of $1,000. All hopes are centered
on Sherff Foley's chase with the Indian
bloodhounds, but even those are meager, and
unless that ottUw is beard from to-day there
will I- a feeling of anxiety for hiin and his
A Fatal Place to Hide.
There is no record of the capture of any
criminal who ever sought ref'ige in the pin
eries of this section. A skeleton has occa
sionally been found to tell of judgment ever
lasting. Such a case is reported from Glid
den, Wia Six weeks ago a German named
Fuchs, a fugitive from justice, murdered a
young woman who had accompanied him to
America, and he took to the woods. The
story came from Glidden yesterday that his
body was found in the swamp. He lost hi
way aud starved. Tho most experienced
cruiser only will venture into these woods
with compass and a week's supply of food.
Four years ago two desperadoes locked
Banker Wilmarth, of AshJand, Wia, in his
vault and stole several thousand dollars.
Tbey took to the woods and have never been
