Tbere are a great many in Rock Island,
who through relatives or friends are in
terested in the army and the duties exact,
eiof those who are in tho regular service
of today. Hence the following letter
from ah army officer well know here, to
a relative in Rock Islacd will be read
with interest :
Camp Schofield, I. T., Slept. 25, 1889.
1 am now, as you doubtless know, on
Gen. Merritt's staff, temporarily. This
would ordinarily Rive me a "soft snap,"
but everything is entirvly unorganized,
and hence I am busy all the time. Have
to accompany him eve y morning and
afternoon to, as we say. "see tbe war."
That is the common expression. These
troops are not here to dr II in the ordinary
sense of the term, bu- to go out and
practice some of the pr nciples underly
ing tbe art of war accoiding to the latest
methods, necessitated by the improvement
that has been, and now is beinc made in
implements of war armn, guns, etc. Tbe
methods of Alibiing at d conducting an
attack or battle of any kind have all
changed since our war and we are here
to practice and learn 1or tbe first time
some of the new metUods. Of couTse
everybody is green anil most everybody
(Jen. Merrill and his aides. Lieutenants
Dodge and Swift, agisted by Maj Bab
cock and Maj. Sanger, Irom Leavenworth,
arc here to teach thii art. There are
about two thousand tioops here, organ
ized thus far into four regiments. Each
regiment is exercised I jus far separately
in the preliminary m vements. Finally
they will be consolidated into two oppos
ing forces, who will o,ierale against each
other. Then the "wr" will begin and
each force will be expected to put into
practice the principles they have been
learning in the preliminary movements,
and exercises tbry have been practicing.
This is a camp of magnificent distan
ces, you must understand. From our
headquarters to the headquarters of the
Seventh cavalry is a mile.about the same
to the Fifth cavalry. and three fourths of a
mile to each of the infantry regiments;
from the Seventh to the Fifth is a
mile and a half; tbe hospital is two miles
from the quartermaster's department, yet
such is the lay of tbe lurid that each camp
can be seen from lure. This is a high
point and well drained. Orders are sent
from here to the nun erous camps by or
derlies ami by signal men under my in
struction. When the troops ire all ready and are
seen starting out for their numerous bat
tle grounds Gen. Merrit says: "Well,
gentlemen," and ruojnts. This is the sig
nal for mounting anil all arouud to follow
him. Tnere are Maj. Haheock, Adj. Gen.;

orderly, and the ser eant who carries the
general's standard is always along. So
we make a cavalcade of fifteen first the
general then staff, then colors, then or
derlies, and in order and manner we visit
and witness tbe n.anoeuvres of tbe dif
ferent commands. These manoeuv
res are under tin; supervision of Gen.
Merrill, Maj.Batxock and Maj. Sanger.
Sometimes tne general sends the two lat
ter to other bod iet,, while he stays with
one which is then manoeuvering. In
correcting faults i.nd mistakes he makes
use of us to cany messages to brigade
and battalion co.nmanders. After tbe

. As per arrangement, Mr. Aagust
Huesing gave Boss Wells formal posses
sion of tbe Rock Island postofflce at tbe
close of business hours yesterday. The
boss did not go home to supper, prefer
ing to enter upon bis new duties after
fasting, and he was on hand before the
time came to turn on tbe lights. When
he finally realized that he was postmaster
in reality and had actually got hold of an
office, he let escape from bis lips a yell
that drove every employe of the office
out into the street in a state of terror.
lie finally calmed down, however, and
entered upon the discharge of his duties,
and this morning he made up for omis
sions in the matter of diet.
Miss Annie Huesing desired to retire
from her position as money order clerk
with the retirement of her father, and
formally tendered her resignation, but
upon Mr. Well a' solicitation she consent
ed to remain another month and instruct
her successor. Miss Delia Stone, in the
requirements of the position. No other
mportant changes will be made in the
forces of the office for the present.
Mr. L. B. Merriman, of reoria, ar

For some rime the Davenport Time
has been waging a vigorous warfare on
Chief Kessler and the Davenport police
force in genet al, charging the chief with
not only a failure to properly discharge
his duties, bu', with absolute dishonesty.
The chief, tt erefore, sought an invest!
gation as to any criminal practices in bis
manner of conducting his office. Tbe
grand jury riade a searching investiga
tion, summoning the city editor of the
Time as a witness, and yesterday it
made its report, declaring, "as our un
animous op nion, that said newspaper
charges are untrue; that there is no evi
dence to sustain such accusations against
Chief Kessler or any member of the Das
yen port police force." The closing sen
tence of the report is, "In conclusion
we say, in c ur opinion the sourse of such
newspaper (the Time) in publishing
such seutationai and unwarranted
charges agi.mst our police force is calcu
lated to weaken its fficiency, and does
not meet with our approbation."
Frank F-easier has the reputation of
being one t f the'best chiefs of police in
the west, f nd all who know him will be
pleased with his vindication, coming as it
does from a source where he bad no
means of defense and where his enemies
had full scope to do their worst, a privi
lege the obnoxious grand iury systems of
this country affords.

Last evening Fenner & Crane's dra
malic company opened a week's engage'
ment at Harper's theatre in Augustine
Daly's great sensational society comedy
drama, "Pique." It was a strong presen
tation of tbe familiar play in the hands of
a strong cast. Indeed it has never been
more satisfactorily presented in Rock
Island. The "Capt. Standish" of E. M
Crane, tbe "Matthew Standish" of Geo
Hanna, and tbe "Dr. Gossett" of Lloyd
Melville were successfully handled, while
the "Sammy Dymple" of Rob. V. Fergu
son was a creation in itself, Ferguson.
whose face is familiar to the theatre go
ing people of Rock Island, being a come
dian of the most modern school. Miss
Amelia Melville acted the part of "Mabel
Renfrow" in a highly meritorious manner
and Miss Ida Vallance was perfection as
"Mary Standish." The other parts were
well sustained. Tbe company appears in

Marshal Monesmith, of Geneseo. ar

McElravy, back with him on the 8:30 a.

the man they want for horse stealing.and
Officer McElravy will get a reward of (50
for his capture. Goodrich is also ens
pec ted of burning a barn and seventeen
head of horses some time ago near Gene

the arrest may prove quite a financial
