A NARROW ESCAPE.
An Exciting Incident Saturday

f Tweatr-Faarth MtrttetA
A collision between a C , B. & Q. lo
comotive aod a street csr occurred at the
foot of Twentyfourtb street at 8:30 Sat-
urdaj evening, which by the merest acci
aent in tbe world indeer it seemed
through a marvelous intervet lion of some
kind It did not result disastriaaly. From
what coold be seen by an .rocs repre
aentauve, who was a pass nger on the
oar. and what could be letrned after
ward, the casualty was ent rely due to
inexcusable carelessness on'tl e part of the
locomotive engineer. The .-rousing was
blocked to permit some switching to be
done; a car hound for Dstenport was
waiting on the sooth side, and behind
It a bugey, while a car coming into Rock
Island was wailing close to Le bridge.
ooiu oemg a safe distance from the
tracks. Engine 364 of thetj., B. AO
jwi. uempsey anver, came lp on the
Burlington track wiih four cars at
tacnea, ran up to the swi( h, a short
distance above the crowing and
dropped back onto o.;e of the Kock
Island tracks, and ran down Into the lower
yards of the latter company. WLen the
ItvinmAli.i. I. .4 i .

pany's watchman at tbe junction and who
was standing as nearly the m ddle of tbe
crossing of the aifferent trscks as he
could well be, gave tbe signal to the cars
in waiting on each side to stan. Tbe car
and tbe vehicle on the south fide crossed
in safety and the car coming from Daven
port, driven oy Herman Jacob, got under
good headway and was dow n as far as
the guard bouse, when the driver and all
on board as well as Guard Kelly and
Watchman Edgecomb were fur prised to
see the locomotive start up. Guard Kelly
first hallowed to the car drivi r, who put
on his brakes aod did all bo could to
stop, but it was too late, and ben Kelly
as well as Watchman EdRecomb.screamed
m uie locomotive engineer, but the
man in the cab paid no attent on. and to
tbe horror of all witnesses tbe locomotive
and the car approached each other. The
engine was moving very slow y, but fast
enough, as all could see to catch the car
before it could clear the crossing, and the
car was moving so rapidly that it was
plainly apparent it would be impossible
to stop it before it reached thn crossing.
A realization of all these circumstances
shot through tbe minds of every
one witnessing the approaching collision,
except perhaps the engineer, in an in.
sunt, yet tbe whole thing was over so
quickly that no one had time to leave tbe
car, until the danger was sractically
passed. Seeinsr that the engineer was
not going to stop. Guard Jelly and
Watchman Edgecomb got hold of the
car. and by pushing back brought it to a
stop just as it reached the tr -k of the
approaching engioe, the dashboard of tbe
car being scratched by the lccomotive.
which also stopped as the front end ex.
tended over tbe car track.
Then it was that tbe tassengers
first left the car. tboutrh a wn.
man from Moline had become hysterical
ilh fear, and bad given way to a series
of Salvation army walls. This woman
lost ber sense of reason entirely, and
through ber actions another lady passent
ger sustained a severe foot spraia.
The horse attached to the cr. which
bad been brought face to face with the
locomotive, became frantic, and notwith
standing that tbe driver manifested won
derful grit and heroism in sticking to bis
break, turned the car conuleteli around
on the tracks, and started bad; with it
toward tbe bridge, before the plucky
driver could get control of it.
Guard Kelly displayed not only a spirit
of bravery but of self-possession as did
Watchman Edgecomb, and it wis due to
the work of these men that a terrible
calamity did not occur. The 1st er states
that after tbe engine bad backed down
into the yards Engineer Dempsy said.
"let tbe cars over" and be accordingly
gave ths signal to the drivers. But the
engineer claims that be did tot know
there was a car waiting on tbe n irth side
of the track. This dees not excjse him
as he could not have been on tb lookout
without seeing tbe efforts of the guard
and watchman to attract his attention.
Furthermore be should have satis led him-,
self as to both sides of the track before
starting np; be was, to say ti e least,
guilty of gross carelessness, and pub
lic safety as well as tie well
known considerate disposition of tbe
Burlington road for public interests
demand that he be made an exa.nple of.
Tbe accident illustrates the in perative
need of the much talked of viad ict. and
further that until such time as ibe via
duct is built. If only until next spring,
gates should be provided. While proba
bly nothing but care on tbe part of tbe
engineer could bave prevented this acci
dent, gates would in tbe great majority of
cases avert danger, and they niight in
this case bad tbey been erected close to
tbe track .

It is a struggle between those who work
and those who live upon the work of
others between tbe idlers and the toilers.
It ((rows in intensity from year to year,
and will work disastrous results to the
toiling millions unless they combine for
mutual protection and benefit. It there
fore becomes the duty of all who work to
unite in such a way as to disseminate
among all working people in R kU Island
of both sexes, such information as will
enable them to protect their interests.
and secure the recognition of tbe rights
to which they are justly entitled. We
therefore organize an association to be
known as the 'Rock Island Eight Hour
League,' for the purpose of better in

for the benefit of working people, and
we authorize our names to be enrolled as
members of the aforementioned league.
The league is to bold regular meetings
from time to time, and special meetings
whenever the executive committee may
deem fit to call them. Tbe expenses are
to be defrayed by voluntary contribution.
The officers president, two vice presi

saterratlas Report af J H.Haatkwell
araa Kxpenmeat with Pavlac Ma
Recently Mr. Thil Mitchell, of tbe
committee on brick factory of tbe Rock
Island Improvement association, submit
ted to Prof. J. H. Southwell for analyti
cal test tbe sample of paving brick clay
received from Galesburg aod a sample of
tbe deposit found in the eastern part of
Rock Island. The following is Mr,
Southwell's report on the subject:
MR. Pirn. Mitchell: Dear Sir: I
bave examined tbe sample of clay vou
gave me that came from the eastern part
of this city, and also that which was
found by Mr. Nevins with a car load of
tbe paving brick. This last, it is sup
posable, represents the material from
which the paving brick is manufactured.
The first mentioned contains a laree pro
portion oi kaoiinile or silicate of alumi-
m. but no free silica or sand; is of a
dark color, but tbe color does not seem to
be due to the presence of a hydro-carbon.
It feels somewhat soapy which is caused
by the large proportion of kaolin and tbe
absence of silica in the form of either ob
servable or impalpable sand. It shows
no trace of soda, potash or any alkali.
but on tbe contrary, tbe litmus exhibits
the presence of some organic acid. When
dry tbe mass possesses a noticeable
cleavage with a tendency to split up into
irregular horizontal plates.
the piece of dry clay from tbe car of
paving brick shows no tendency to cleav
age in any direction, but it breaks under
tbe hammer into pieces that seem to bave
tendency to roughly imitate in form
rbomhobedroue or blocks with lozengcr
shaped ends. R is of a eray color
and quite hard and stone-like.
A microscopic elimination reveals a very
fine powder of quite regularly rounded
grains, which tbe polariscope proves to
be silica. Wben this powder is viewed
under a magnification of one hundred
diameters it appears very much as tbe
saltpeter sand, which you use at the glass
orks, does to the unaided eve. This
powder sand, you will observe, must be
of grain, exceedinely small it was
ground in tbe mills that "grind slowly
for, at the above mentioned rate of mag
nification, one train of class sand would
furnish enough silica for ten thousand of
these particle. Piftaea to twenty-ft re
per cent of tbe piece of clay from tbe
car consists of this very fine sand.
Tbe remainder is mostly kaoiinile.
It also contains some iron, proba
bly in tbe form of a carbonate,
which, in burning, becomes changed to a
red oxide, giving tbe brick its color. In
ternally mixed with the mass are particles
of a carbonaceous substance, as if a large
quantity of the clay had been ground
and thorough y mixed with a few pounds
No alkali appears to be present. With
the constituents mentioned above tbe
addition of a little potash or soda would
cause tbe substance to become highly
vitrified in burning.
I think that clay similar to this piece
from the car may be found about here a
little careful examination would demon
strate this. I imagine that good paving
brick clays could be found in the western
part of Andalusia and northern parts of
Buffalo Prairie and Drury townships, and
clay at Carbon Cliff may be found, upon
trial, suitable for this purpose.
