Marital RelatlaaaMtraaKe Areas.
Hock Island, Sept. 7. 1880. la con
nection with a divorce tail I bare pend
inn la the bt. Itus court and a suit mi
wife caused brought io this city and one
la Davenport, It baa teemed proper to try
one side of the cases in the newspapers.
Advantage ha bee a taken In my absence
by these articles appearing wben I was
ft re hundred miles from here, and as I
bare not seen the articles until today. I
witth to say the statement as they appear
to me Daily baton or July 17 last, are
false In nearly every particular. In the
first place the article states I married an
estimable young lady of Muscatine
county, Iowa, with considerable money
and aooo spent it in dissipation. I
learned sometime after I had married her
that I bad been deceived in many wavs.
1 not only found that site was almost a
physical wreck and that her constitution
required the immediate and necessary ex
pe ml it u re f considerable money, but dis
covered that she was not true to me,
The statement that she posocssed money
is false. I don't believe she hail any psrt
of a dollar wln-n I married her, for I pa'd
for her wedding clothes. Hlie was living
on a farm three and a hall miles below
Buffalo with her mother, brother and two
younger sinters wben I married her. The
fortune she possessed can he reckoned by
the fact that I gave ber the money to
prepare a dinner for the minister wbo
came from Muscatine to erform the cer
emony, as she did not have the money
herself or credit in liuffalo to get supplies
to get up a dinner. My wife had
Bfty acres of about the hilliest, roughest
bruah land that can be found in the state
oriowa. She had this all lo ber own
right, too. She bad some liabilities, too.
that were in some few other people's
right. These liabilities aggregated, to
gether wiia bills I paid out lor a surgical
operation that had to be performed upon
her, over $.'mKI. She did mortgage this
piece of land and took the money f 440
ouly and f 440 is all I ever received from
her great estate and I paid out over 5O0
for her own individual liabilities and hen
efll ouUide of board and clothes 1
bought for ber inside of ninety days from
tba lime I married ber. This sum vaa
paid out expressly for ber. and not in
dissipation as stated in the article alluded
to. I bad never known the effect of in
toxicating liquors until months after she
bad paid out all ber money for ber own
uses. Tbey accuse me of being a light
ning rod dealer, an insurance agent,
roofer, horse trailer, and lastly a farmer
that I actually had the monumental
gall to be a farmer. I will right here
plead guilty to all these last charges ex
cept the insurance business; the other
four avocations I bave been en
gaged in. I worked in this county
three or four years at Eigioton on a farm.
Fortunately I am well known here and
throughout the county, and Mercer coun
ty west and south of this city, and upon
my return from St. Louis last month I
stopped at Keithsburg and operated from
there. I found some of my friends who
have known me all my life had seen the
slanderous articles in the newspapers con
cerning me. Knowing me so long. 1
found all had acquitted me without my
presence to make a defense.
I was born and raised in this county;
bave done business for the past fifteen
years throughout the county, and Mer
cer, Henderson and Warren counties,
and today I owe no eron in the state a
While I am willing to wait patiently
for my vindicttinn by the courts, I do
not think the business roofing lightning
rods, horse trading and farming should,
during the pending of these suits, be left
In a position that they should be, or can
be assaulted over my shoulders; and
upon rr flection I have concluded to not
farm, trade horses or do any rooting
work until these suits are disposed of.
At the tame time I would request my
friends to suspend tbeir judgment on the
merits of the case now io court until
tbey are put in possession of the facts.

The Dubuque lit raid says:
Ous Knittel, the young man wbo col
lected a number of accounts for bis em
ployer io Politique and then went to Rock
Island with thu money, has returned to
bis employer. That gentleman's name is
Ferris, and he seems to bave come to us
from another world. At any rate be does
business in a very peculiar way. For in
stance, discovering that bis collector bad
absconded, he wrote to young Knittel in
Ilork Inland, told him plainly of the
crookedness which bad been discovered io
bis dealings, of his regret and unwilling
ness to believe in bis guilt as the result
.t dishonest vurpowi or mnlu'.a f fi.rf .
thought, lis urireil htm lo return and
wipe out the blot upon bis hitherto
good name and bet, n over again. Ilia
proposition to Knittel was. that if he
would return to his old position be would
give bim bis board and the same wages
be tad Formerly received; ho would also
allow bim one-half the amount of collec
tions appropriated to he applied on his
unpaid hoard bill, the other half to be
returned to him. In reply to this re-
rnaraanie and generous letter, young
iwomei maoe a prompt and clean confes
sion of his double dealing, with a state
ment to the effect that be bad been driv
en iy pressing circumstances to the
course which he bad taken. His family,
In Itock Inland, be said, were sad It need
ing money, and be bad 'borrowed' small
amounts from time to time to help them
out. lie will accept bis employer's gen
erous offer and return to bim.
Some strange finds have come to the
urfaco in connection with the excavaca-
tions along Second avenue incident upon
the paving and grading process. A few
days since Street Commissioner H. C
Harris found on Second avenue, between
Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets, an
ancient English coin, bearing the date
17 J, which be will preserve an a curios
Ity in the way of a pocket piece; and
Mr. David Don discovered a well pre
served brick sidewalk' Icd or twelve
inches below the level of bis former walk
in digging down to reach the established
grade. When it was put there and by
whom, no one seems to know, though
the old time grade seems to bave been
nearer right than the one afterward adop
ted. ;aatr Mallalaco.

NOT A FRIEND OF LABOR.
Rev. Al Albr- Mermaa pat Caws,

aa4 Catrae Aaaertlaaa.
Tbe Rev. Addis Albro in hit sermon
Sunday evening oa "Some Essential Ele
ments of Successful Labor," pointed to
the Ooldcn Rule as tbe only solution of
the labor problem of the day. 'He did
not believe that any law regulating the
length of a day's labor to eight hours
could prevent the natural law of supply
and demand from proportionately re
ducing the wages for a day's work.
He sympathized with labor in all its
efforts for the betterment of its condi
tion, and advocated a division of profits
on the part of the employer; but held
at tbe same time that most of the
trades unions and labor organizations
of the day are tending toward social
ism. Mont of them he declared are
now semi-socialistic. He referred to
the recent labor day celebration on Syl
van inland, and to the utterances of Hens
ry D. Lloyd, of Chicago, which utter
ances he held to he at least semi-socialis
tic, as well as tending away from the
caurcn ana religion. Tbe speaker also
regarded it as a bad commentary on the
habits or labor that statistics showed that
twoMhlrds of the 9 ftC3,0tH).(K)D annually
spent in this country for intoxicants was
spent by the laboring tieoole: and he re-
ferred to tbe fact that it look twenty to
iweniy-uve men lo serve the people on
Sylvan Island on labor day with beer.
Moline IK patch.
When the chairman of the meeting on
Sylvan island Monday announced that
Mr. Albro was to deliver a sermon on
labor, and urged all to go and hear it.the
natural supposition was that the sons of
toil were being Invited to hear their cause
extolled and not belittled and compared
with tbe aims of a lawless semi-civilized
class, the leading representatives of
which the American people have been
obliged to hang and tte doctrines of
which are not sustained by any true
Knight of Labor.

"An effort will be made to crowd tbe
Davenports out of the league next year
because hoodlums only attend tbe game."
That is all right; but while Davenport
is being kept out it might not be a bad
idea to freeze Peoria out too. Tne
crowds which attend the games in that
city are notoriously tbe toughest in the
league, and tbe visiting teams are always
subject to insults of tue meanest kind, no
matter how well they may conduct them
selves. The daily papers also take great
delight in "roasting" tbe visiting players
and spesk of them in terms, which are,
to say tbe least, a disgrace to a newspa
per. Tbe 2rantcriit man should remem
ber the old adage, "That those wbo live
in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."
Right you are, there, Burlington. Peo
ria's maliciousness toward Davenport is
due wholly to tbe fact that Davenport is
winning the pennant, while Peoria is
struggling for fourth place. Tbe insult
of tbe Tranrrif towards the people
wbo attend tbe Davenport games, many
of whom are from this city, may be
charitably considered as emanating from
a source that knows no better. To be
sure there are those who occupy tbe
bleachers over there, who make them
selves very obnoxious and very disagree
able, but this is not extended to the
grand stand, except on days when Peo
ria sends an excursion. Davenport's
bleachers are bad enough, but no worse
than any other city io the league.

ssys of tbe production and author:
A considerable share of laughter in
American theatres of late years has been
caused by Charles II. Hoyt's extravagant
larces. Some have bad familiarly hum
orous themes, and have contained excel
lent satire. Others bave been too inde
finite and feeble to make any sort of im
pression. A rew one, entitled "A Brass
Monkey," is performed this week at tbe
Bijou opera bouse. Io it the popular
superstitions relating to bad luck are
taken up for derision. A happy fancy of
Anstey's seems to bave provided the sug
gestion. A brass monkey is in this case
tbe unfortunate image of which the
owner cannot rid himself. The occur
rences growing out of that thing are in
