Thomas McCausland, the Volt county
stock dealer, shot by a bur,;!ur Monday
night, still lies in an almost hopless con
dition. Tbe sheriff thinks h- bus a good
clew to Webb's confederate n the crime,
and that be does nol live far trom tbe
scene of the shooting.
' Angry farmers still guard every road,
and one may judge of the state of the
feeling in the neighborhood when it is
said that Sheriff Leonard's carriage was
Bred into early yesterday mo-ning. The
circumstances are interesting. It was S
o'clock when the sheriff reached the out
skirts of the town on his retun after con
ducting the prisoner, Webb to Daven
port. Tbe night was dark be and his
companions could scarcely the road
ahead of them. They did not know
whether they were on the ri jht road or
not, nor how far they wert from Mc
Causland. So they stopped in the mid
dle of the road in front of a farm house,
and Jim Iloward, a deputy, ebo accom
panied tbe sheriff and Coron :r Bawden,
jumped out of tbe carriage and walked
through the yard to the bouse and
knocked at the door. The farmer ap
peared, and Jim asked him bow far it
was to McCausland. "You re right in
McCauslandt" exclaimed the farmer in an
angry tone. Tbe ex-pulicecian whirled
around, and trotted back to -he carriage
shouting, "We're all riubt, toys; this is
the place!" The farmer tteiieved that
tbe sheriff and his men were a gang of
robbers, and proposed to! 20 through
his house. Sheriff Leonard got
out of tbe catriage just us Iloward
bad returned to it, and just tten tbe far

whistle of shot kind of unnerred the cor

unmoved. He held up his bands when
the sranger commanded him to do so and
in answer to his orders calmly answered,
What is the matter T" "Mj Ood!" ex
claimed Howard, "you're shorting at the

NatT" the granger surpnsingl f answered.
Yes. said tbe sheriff, and then words
of rt morse were not numerous enough
for the fanner to suitably ma te an apoK
ozy. As no one was injured and as the
sheriff knew the excited stati of feeling
existing in tbat neiebborhood, be accept
d tbe farmer's apology and drove on.
A feeling of terror still rei ;ns in the

This evening, October 81, will be Hal-
loweea, so called from being the eve or
vigil of All Saints' Day, a festival which
takes its origin from tbe conversion by
Pope Boniface, IV., about 607, of the
Pantheon at liome into a christian place
of worship, and its dedication to the Vir
gin and all tbe martyrs. Its anniversary
was first celebrated on May 1, but the day
was subsequently altered to November 1.
Pope Gregory IV, about tbe year 830, ea
tablished it as a day for the commemora
tion of all those saints and martyrs in
whose honor no particular day is as
The reformers of the English church in
1549 struck out of their calendar a treat
number of anniversaries, leaving only
those which at that time were connected
with popular feeling or tradition, Hal
loween being one of those retained.
Halloween possesses its manners, cus
toms and traditions. These customs
and superstitions were at one time nu
merous, though at the present they are
not given the same prominence and be
lief as formerly. Many are retained as a
source of merriment, a any entirely for
gotten, while in some parte of the world
a few are still practiced and believed.
The observance of Halloween is clearly a
relic of pagnn times, for there is nothing
in tbe church observance of All Stints'
Day to have originated such extraordina
ry notions as are connected with this
festival, or such remarkable practices as
those by which it is distinguished. In
pagan Rome, during the month of Octo
ber, a horse called October was sacrificed
to Mars, and tbe Greeks and Romans had
raanv bacchanalian festivals in this
month, at which the people bad recourse
to magic and divinations.
In Engli8h4ptaking countries ono o f
tbe most common customs is tbat of
ducking for apples, a ceremony conducted
as follows: A lot of apples are set afloat
in a tub of water, and attempts are made
to catch them with the teeth, which, if
successful, tbe person retaining the apple
and peeling it carefully, tbe strip of peel
ing is passed around the bead thrice,
after which it is thrown over the shoulder,
when it will fall in tbe shape of tbe initial
letter of tbe thrower's true love. Another
apple custom is that of hanging up a
stick horizontally by a string from the
ceiling, and putting a candle on tbe one
end and an apple on the other. Tbe
etick being made to twirl rapidly, tbe
merrymakers in succession leap up and
with tbe teeth attempt
To catch th elnalre apple with a bound.
Aa. witb it taper, it flew whining round.
No use of the hands being permitted.
tbey being tied behind the back, it fre
quently happens that the candle comes
around before it is expected and jeorches
the face or anoints it with grease. This
misadventure, of course, occasions abund
ance of Isugbter.
Nuts and apples are in requisition.
From the custom of flinging tbe former
into the fire, or cracking them with tbe
teeth, baa doubtless come tbe name of
Goldsmith tells in his "Vicar of Wake-
Geld" that tbe country folks religiously
observed this festival. The passion for
prying into futurity was one of the strik
ing characteristics of our ancestors, and
it was a custom, when tbe young women
would know if their lovers were faithful,
to put nuts in front of tbe fire on this
night, naming tbe nuts after their lovers.
If a nut cracked or jumped the lover
ould prove unfaithful; if it began to
blsza or burn he had regard for tbe per
son making tbe test. If tbe pair of nuts
burned together a marriage of tbe couple
would be sure to follow.
The boys in this city. anJ most other
cities, used to raise Ned every Halloween,
with their "tick-tack" tricks, removal of
gates, transferring of signs, placing ropes
about three feet over tbe sidewalks in
dark places so that people would stumble
over them, putting obstructions in front
of doors, and other aggravating mischief.
But for ten years at least, there has been
little of these sports indulged in, because
of the vigilance of the police and fear of
arrest. Examples made in this city a
few years ago, caused tbe youthful mar
plots of those dsys to "consider their
ays and be wise.". Tbey are young
men now, let us be tbankrul, and nave
no Halloween successors.

1 PRESSING THE PEDDLERS.
A Igaraaa Newspaper Warfare aa
thla Claaa af Itlaeraata A relater
jjst at wis time mere is quite a war
fare being wsged upon peddlers who go
from town to town selling wares and com
pounds of various descriptions to the
detriment of the regularly established
merchants. In many cities tbe laws
governing peddlers are very limited and
the income that the cities receive from
this source is merely nominal. Generally
the price that is asked of itinerant ped
dlers for the privilege of canvassing a
city is a mere bagatelle. The Bloomings
ton Pantograph in handling tbia subject
In a recent issue said:
In justice to our merchants tbe license
required of a peddler should be such that
it would bring him Into competition with
a regularly established merchant, selling
tbe same goods, unless it is, the license
falls short of its intended purpose, and
the city gives preference in the race tor
business to one who is not a resident of
our city and who should not have such
preference. Every merchant in Bloom
ington and every man in our city who
is regularly established in business,
who carries a large stock of goods,
who either owns a building or pays
rent for a building, who pava taxes.
who pays clerk hire, who cays for
street Improvements, who contributes
for tbe city and to our city government
and tbe public improvements of the city,
and who has the general welfare of the
city at heart, should be given a decided
preference and advantage over an itiner
ant peddler handling tbe same goods and
wares. Tbe daily expenses of almost
every merchant in Bloomington will run
from 10 to t25. and any man selling
the same goods that these merchants that
pay the expenses do, before he should be
permitted to sell transiently in tbe city.
should not only pay an equal amount
with the merchants, but sbould be re
quired to pay double that sum. In other
words: If tbe daily expenses of the
average grocer of Bloomington are tlO a
day, then, before a peddler selling the
same goods or goods tbat a grocer sells.
should be permitted to sell his foods.
should pay a license of $20 a day.
1 ne city council should lose no time in
reconsidering tbe peddler laws, and should
fix tbe price for license to foreitrn ped
dlers, foreign manufacturers and produ
cers at such a price as would bring them
into competition with our merchants. It
is probably beyond tbe power of the
council to positively prohibit the traffic
or tbe foreign peddler, but it should be so
regulated that if be sees fit to do business
in our city he must pay a portion of the
taxes and the general expenses of tbe
city's government and improvement, and
must come into competition with the
merchant who sells the same kind or tbe
same class of goods.
4at a welled Head.
Officer John Geisberger, of tbe Moline
police force, is carrying a heavy load in
tbe way of a swelled head and tbe expan
sion will result disastrously if he is not
checked. The other day Henry Schuma
cher, one of the oldest, as well as one of
tbe most inoffensive citizens of Moline in
demeanor, was humiliated by this man
Geisberger's assumed authority. Mr.
Schumacher was standing on a walk talk
ing to two ladies. It was near the new
Skinner building and the DUpatch relates
Tbe trio stood at a point in the walk
over which a standing wooden brace runs
to the wall of tbe Scbrader building next
to the new block. Thus tbe walk was
obstructed, and aladv struck tbe brace
slightly with her head. Some say this
was a third passer-by ; others think it was
one of the two who had stopped for the
moment to interrogate Mr. s. In barsh
and imperative language, as if Mr.
Schumacher had done something wrong,
Geisberger ordered him to move on.
Naturally, the pride of American citizen
ship aDd the consciousness of inno
cence of any wrong asserted itself, and
Mr. Schumacher paid no attention to
the request. Geisberger pushed him
almost into the gutter, using harsh lan
guage as be did so, and drawing from
Mr. Schumacher a question aomclhine
like, "you d n fool, what do you mean?"
and perhaps a few more such sentences
elicited by the unusual proceeding.
Thereupon Geisberger shook him violent
ly, arresting him for profane language.
Both men were by this time thoroughly
excited, and Mr. Schumacher resisted to
tbe extent of bis strength. Tbe result
was that Geisberger bad to call another
officer to bis aid in order to get Mr.
Schumacher up stairs to Magistrate
O'Neill's office. The magistrate was not
in, and Mr. S. refused to go to Justice
Swensson's office. Thereupon Geis
berger exercised tbe good sense of re
leasing him on his recognizance pending
the finding of a justice.
Tbe case is to come up Saturday and
unless the mayor dismisses Geisberger for
his offense. Mr. Schumacher should sue
tba city of Moline for damages, aa much
as be is entitled to for the disgraceful
treatment he has received at the hands of
of her representatives. This, and
several other instances of late have illus
trated tbat numerous changes might be
made on tbe Moline force and resound to
the city's advantage. What with ineffl
ciency and swelled beadednesa the town
seems in a bad way. No belter marshal
than Ed. Kittleson can be found in the
state of Illinois, but witb bis present force
be is handicapped.
