Harry IIirTlaon. pnymuter In the office
of the Coal Valley Mining Co., waa the
abject of a complimentary frreeiirjg and
presentation on the part ol bis friends
last evening as well a of a genuine sur
prise. At 0:80 o'clock fifteen of Mr.
Harrison's most intimate acquaintances
assembled at the Rock Island house, and
under the peaceful urvelllan2e of Masjis
trate n. C. Wi-tll and Agent C. H. Baah
forth. of the United State's (press com
pany, drove out to Mr. narixon's home
at the head of Seventeentt street and
quietly took possession. Tie Intrusion
was so gentle and so well pluoned, how
ever, that no resistance whatever was
bown and Miss Mamie Hrr1on and her
friend. Miss Madgn Aster, irctivod the
guests, having had ao inti nation that
something was to happen, and made
them perfectly at home. ''Han-v." how
ever, the callers discoverec, had gone
down town and thera wss only to wait
bis return, and as some time elapsed be
fore he did, the thought wis expressed
that perhaps they were going to be
the ones who were to b surprised
after all. What if Harry ihould hap.
pen to go to a theatre and not return
until lateT Mrs. Harrison had been ad
vised of the intended compl cnem to her
husband, but she had not breathed a
word of it to him, though she and her
daughter bad quietly made preparations
to contribute to the pleasure of the Oc
eanian, as was shown.
Suspense was finally re'.itved by the
sound of footsteps outside, and Harry
entered. A more surprised man would
be difficult to conceive. Before he could
realize whether he was in his own home
or in someone else's, he was taken pos
session of, and Maj. J. II. Beards
lsy, as master of ceremonies. In
troduced City Attorney Joseph L. Haas,
who advanced and in words that were
well selected presented to M Harrison
an elegant black ebony goM mounted
cace, which Mr. Haas stated represented
the best thing in life gold and ebony
purity and strength. He trusted that
throughout the rest of bis li e the re
cipient would carry it as an evidence of
support in declining years, bu . as an ever
present emblem of esteem and friend
ship. Magistrate II. C. Wivill wti then in
troduced as the chief speaktr. and he
spoke with much feeling, as f Hows:

proud, gentlemen, to atand be I ore my re

Geo. O. Morris and his company appear
in the new scenic nd spectacular drama.
"A Legal Wrong." Mr. Morris is a he.
role actor of world wide reputation and
his company Is one of the best traveling.
The St. Louis Republic says:
"A Legal Wrong," George O. Morris
has proved himself worthy of the title of
one of the beat dramatic actors that has
ever viaited St. Louis. The play pos
sesses merit, being replete with startling
situations and thrilling events.
Jarbeau, in her new musical comedy,
"Strictly Confidential," comes to the
Burtis opera house, Davenport, tonight,
and it is safe to say that it will be one of
the most delightful attractions of the sea
son. The sketch Is made up of charming
musical specialties and witticisms, which,
in the able hands of Jarbeau and her ex
cellent compaay, are made doubly effec
tive. Unlike t great many theatrical
concerns, Jarbeau's support is composed
of a gslsxy of stars in their own line,
each of whom is supposed to sing his
little piece, and sing it well, too, which
they do, as is attested by the favorite
press notices they everywhere receive.
The first grand concert given by the
Davenport Zither orchestra occurs at
narper's theatre next Tuesday evening,
and will embrace a high order of music,
vocal and instrumental. Including music
not only by the excellent orchestra, but
by the T. K. quartette, Miss Hilma Oblin,
Miss Alwine Mueller, Miss Lillie Lsm

musical event in all respects.

Mr. P. T. McElberne died in Chicsgo
last night, and the remains will be
brought to Rock Island for interment.
Mr. McElberne came to Rock laland in
the early 60's from Joliet, his birthplace.
He was then a young man full of prom
ise and hope, and for a short time de
voted himself to the atudy of law with
the firm of Osborn & Curtis. He was
admitted to the bar In I860, and he and
County Judge Adams formed a co
partnership which existed for a
short time. Afterward he practiced
alone, and later he the late Hon . Patrick
O'Mara formed a partnership, a pro
fessional and personal friendship then
being formed that existed ever afterward,
tbe last visit of Mr. McElherne to Rock
Island being to attend Mr. O'Mara's
He was elected city collector in 1969,
and from 1872 to '74 was city attorney,
during which time he revised the city
ordinances. In 1877 he removed to Chi
cago, wbich baa since been his home.
He wss for years a staunch democrat,
but went over to tbe republican party
after his removal to Chicago. He was
possessed of much brilliancy and dash
as well ss of strong arguments! force as
He was a nephew of tbe late Father
Roles, at one time pastor of St. Joseph's
church here. His widow was formerly
Miss Mary Byrnes of this city.

The Mretlas at Uaveaport Last
Kttht Baaealltlra that Oacht t
There wss an exceedingly Urge at
tendance of Woodmen at the special
meeting of Cedar camp at Davenport last
night, made up largely from Rock laland,
Moline and several outside towns
throughout the county. Tbe meeting wss
under the joint auspices of Cedar and
Mapledale camps. Head Consul J. C.
Root, Head Clerk A. W. Bastian of
Fulton, Chairman of the Head Finance
Committee. SL Waide of Muscatine and
Deputy B. W. Jewell of Manchester,
Iowa, were present. The meeting was
for the purpose of hearing an explana
tion on the part of Mr. Root and his
friends of the recent accusations of
fiaud, made by tbe deposed Head Physi
cian, Dr. P. L. McKlnote.
Mr. Bastian was the first speaker, and
be msde a very fair statement of the
facts from tbe standpoint of tbe head
camp, acknowl edging the Bernum death
claim to have been a fraud, but asserted
that it was made without the knowledge
of the head camp officers who supposed
they were paying the money over in good
Mr. Waide did not make as good an
impression. His attitude did not, it must
be said, help Root's case, if he represen
ted him, hut upon being Interrogated he
gave tbe names of Davy and Pierpont as
the witnesses present wben tbe amount
of the Bern urn policy was paid over to
tbe alleged Amanda Bernum. Davy, he
said, was a leading business man of
Lyons, Iowa. This was tbe first time
that tbe names of these important wit
nesses hsd been msde public. He was
finally reminded that remarks from Mr.
Root would be more acceptable to the
Woodmen present, and he yielded.
Head Consul Root stated at the outset
that be did not propose to be interro
gated, at he believed an effort was being
made to criminate him and to bring about
his arrest. He was present in the inter
est of the order and to explain tbe man
ner in which the affairs of tbe bead camp
were conducted as pertaining particularly
to his office, and not in his individual de
fense. n produced a great mass of
documentary evidence, the tendency of
which was to show that it was due to
McEinnie's persistency that the comnlt
teemen were removed and not because of
any desire on his (Root's) part to have
them ousted. As to the alleged contracts
with tbe Iowa Printing and the Pearle
Printing companies, he said his son was
both; that he had done certain printing
for tbe order but bad never overcharged
for it. In explanation of the Bernum
fraud he acknowledged that a fraud had
been perpetrated on the order, but said
that tbe money bad been paid by him in
tbe presence of witnesses, in good faith
to a woman who signed herself Amanda
Bernum, but whom be now believed to
be an adventuress who had de
ceived him. He said she was a
tall woman, and a decided bru
nette, whereas his brother's sister-in-law,
Helga Wilborg, who bad been ac
cused of receiving the money, is a strik
ing blonde. He said he bad detectives
at work on the case and promised de
velopments in a few dajs that would
strike leading'members of the Woodmen
society, snd It wouldn't be him. He
accused Dr. McKirjDie of overcharges
amounting to nearly $3,000 as head
physician, and held the latter bad at
tempted to intimidate him because he
would not allow the bead physician's
spurious claims. He denounced Mc
K in Die as ambitious to get control of the
order and of pursuing a tule or ruin
policy to accomplish that end.
Deputy Jewell made brief remarks in
defense of Root and declared his belief
that Root was innocent of any misap
propriation of funds.
That tbe order has been defrauded,
there is not the least possibility of a doubt
and it Is just possible that tbe members
have been victims of a systematic robbery
for some time. Who are the villains and
bow successful and how far reaching have
been their operations remains to be seen.
It is to be hoped the investigation now in
progress at Fulton will throw some light
on tbe subject.
The Fulton Juvriud is enthusiastic in
its defense of Head Consul Root, of the
Modern Woodmen of America, whom It
still contends has been swindled out of
15.000. It states:
General C. W. P.vey, state auditor, J.
Brickerhoff. of Springfield, and G. L.
Marcband. of Chicago, arrived Tuesday
morning and are examining the books of
the head clerk of the Modern Woodmen
of America. It is the duty of tbe state
auditor to examine the books of insur
ance orders annually. Tuesday, Novem
ber 5, Judge John D. Crabtree, at Morri
son, issued an injunction on the bead
officers of tbe Modern Woodmen of
America, restraining thsm from send
ing any of the papers of the or
der, applications, etc., that should
be sent tbe bead physician, to Dr.
Clendenin tbe present besd physician,
and a mandamus commanding them to
send such business as should bn trans
acted by the bead physician to P. Leon
McKlnnie. Tbe papers were served on
F. C. Brayton. head clerk, but have not
been served on the head physician. Dr.
Clendenin. If the papers are served it
virtually restores P. Leon McKinnie to
the office of head physician. Of course
tbe injunction and mandamus is only
temporary, but will be in force till dis
solved. No one at all familiar with the
Woodmen troubles can surmise who made
the complaint and swore out the injunc
tion and mandamus. P. Leon McKinnie,
M. D., ex head physician, is the indi
vidual and there were only seventeen
pages of type writer manuscript of his
It seems apparent that the tx-head
physician is somewhat loth to let go of
tbe office and tbe salary attached there
unto. But where are his followers who
were obeying bis nod and beck a few
weeks ago? Have tbey all deserted
him? We hope that P. Leon has now
done bis dirtiest. We believe that it will
take more than a dozen men of larger
calibre tnan be to even retard the growth
of the order of tbe Modern Woodmen of
America. Tbe salary, and honor, and
postage and railroad fare connected with
the office of head physician has slipped
from bis grasp, and doubtless P. Leon
now resembles tbe boy who tied himself
to the bull's tail and saw where he missed
it before he went a rod. One thousand
and five hundred new members joined
tbe Modern Woodmen during the past

Undent of streets are doing with Seven
teenth street. They had better fence tbe
street up if they don't intend to take the
trouble to make it passable for pedes
trians. Clemann & Salzmann have found it
necessary, in order to accommodate their
mammoth business, to secure additional

would knock another board out of tbe
Union'i visionary fence around the town,
but tbe trains are going on the Q , and It
is further reported on good suthorily,
that there is likely to be a train put on
that will arrive in Rock Island In tbe

8.80 in the afternoon. It will break the

Secretary Medill, of the Improvement
association, is in receipt of an invitation
from PresiJent Moore asking all mem
bers of the association to take a compli

railway next Monday afternoon the
same time the council are Invited. In
vitations will also be sent from Moline to
individual members of the association,
and it is hoped that all who can will at
tend. A special .train has been tendered
by the Q . which will leave the depot
about 2 o'clock.
