and the symptoms of disturbance in that

bourses were quiet, with prices mainly

A Haw Over the t'.leririe.
Yesterday morning the Central Street
Railway company in Moline commenced
taking out a switch just at the top of the
hill, and by noon started to lay a straight
track in its place. The switch was com
posed of tram rail, and in its place the
workmen, under orders of Superintend
ent W. R Moore, started to lay the
straight line of T rails. Mayor Wessel
got on to it. and notified Mr. Moore to
quit ltying the T rail, as the ordinance
rails for tram rail. Moore refused to
stop the work, and continued to lay T
rail. Mayor Wetscl instructed Marshal
Kittilsen to go up and if the work was
not stopped, to arrest Moore and his men.
The marshal and several officers went
np at 1 30 the Iiiitrh says, and ordered
the work stopped. Fie told Moore not to
driye another spike or lay another rail.
"What will you do if I drive another
spike?" retorted Moore.
"Arrest you." replied Kittilsen.
To test the olllcer, Mr. Moore coolly
picked up a spike'and drove it io. The
officers immediately arrested him and two
of his workmen, and they were placed in
the patrol wagon which was standing by
and taken down to the police head
quarters. The Diint-h further says:
One trouole with Ibis ordinance, as
with a number of others is that it has no
penalty attached. Mr. Moore says T rails
were being used because the company baa
no tram-rails at band. He avers that the
taking up of the switch improves the
street, no matter what sort of rail is used
lie holds furthermore that the city auth
orities bad no right to arrest bim or his
men. the ordinance not beinga penal one.
He says an injunction shonld have been
gotten out had they wanted the work
stopped. He threatens to have Mayor
Wessel arrested for abusive language.
The affair was amicably adjusted this
morning, and Moorn released.

dwelt at some length on tbe far-reaching
possibilities of the doings of tbe congress. In
referring to tbe exrors on to which the dele

it was intended not onl t to give them an op
portunity to see the pi ices of i terest in tbe

but to study the room ercial and industrial
features of the Unitec St ea, and to give

administration narrowly partisan and lo

shorter hours for woman and cbil.l labor,

They Adopt Resolutions Criticising Re
Philadelphia, Oct it At yesterday
morning's session of the National Civil Serv
ice Reform league Oeorge William Curtis
was re-elected president Resolutions were
adopted criticising the manner in which the
civil service pledge of tbe Republican party
have been fulfilled and the practice followed
by the president of placing the appointments

abling them to debauch constituencies and

Colcmbcs, O., Oct 3. Hon. John Mc-
Bride, president of tbe National Progressive
Union of Miners and Mine Laborers, has ad
dressed an ojien letter to Governor Joseph
W. Fifer, of Illinois, In response to one
written by W. L. Scott, in which the latter
gentleman endeavored to sustain the posi
tion he hns assumed regarding the present
mining situation iu Illinois. After a brief
statement of the situation previous to tbe
publication of the Scott's letter, Mr. Mc-
"Being willing to accept equitable condi
tions and prices, nnd to effect an honorable
settlement of the present strike, the follow
ing is offered :
First, To work the second or thick coal
vein at Spring Vallev for the pries paid at
Streator, namely, 73 cents per ton; this
too, in tbe face of tha fact that the mine is
yet in the crop coal, is full of faults and up
to this time has cost tbe company by their
own admission, over tl per ton for mining it
second, Believing that Mr. Scott will ad
mit the fact that more labor is required to
mine a ton of coal in tbe third vein at Spring
Valley than iu tbe thick coal in Streator,
we will agree to mine his thin coal for the
price paid tbe thick coal miners at Streator,
provided the coniany will do the brushing
and building; or, third.
'We will agree to an adjustment of prices
and conditions such as may be determined
by arbitration, or by an agreemant to joint
ly investigate, and be governed by the facta
developed by such investigation.''
Mr. ilcHi ide presents an exbunstive argu
ment in answer to Mr. Scott, and presents
facte and figures which seem hard to dispute.
Tbey show that while Mr. Scott professes a
willingness to pay as much for mining as his
competitor in northern Illinois he ignores
other and more important fields surround
ing bim, confining himself to a comparison
earning ability of miners employed at
Spring Valley and Braid wood. They fur
ther say they do not believe Mr. Scott's ar
gument is practical, and know that if it was
applied in a general way it would close Mr.
Scott s mines and his oistomers would pur
chase from more favored fields.

The readers of the Dailt A Rous will
be pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able cure in all its stages, and that
is catarrh. Ball 'a Catarrh Cure is tbe
only positive cure now known to tbe
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucus surfaces of the sys
tem, thereby destroying the foundation
of tbe disease, and giving the patient
strength, by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.
Tbe proprietors have so much faith in iu
curative powers, that they offer one hun
dred dollars for any case that it fails to
cure. Bend for list of testimonials. Ad
