was at first wholly non-committal, bis
only answer to the question being: "J
have not done by any means anything to
lead anyone to think I have a contismpla
tion of leaving Rock Island." But
pressed further on tbe point as betbdr
or not be bad received a pastoral call be
confeased, saying, "Well, yes; I ha' e been

prominent as well as one of th most

been taken by me with reference to the

my knowledge or wltbout the ltast in

be expected. Indeed, I received several
urgent letters from tbe church tefore I
even gave the subject conalderat on. I
should dislike exceedingly to sever my
pastoral and personal relations with the
people of Kock Island, and have no de
termination to do so."
It is to be most sincerely hoped

The States f the Disease la Rsek la

May he the Caaac,
The past week has witnessed no par
licular change in tbe existing condition
of diphtheria in Rock Island if any
thing the indications are more favorable,
as the disease is much less severe where
it has appeared.and Health Commissioner
Eysler believes that with good weather
tbe progress of the infection could te
stayed. Reports from other cities in the
vicinity are tbat the disease is raging to
a much more alarming extent than here,
but a well designed effort is being made
to smother np tbe facta and to prevent
the outside public from knowing tbe ac
tual state of affairs.
People living in the vicinity of Elm
street and Seventh avenue are confident
that they have discovered the origin and
cause of the disease in Rock Island.
Since the rebuilding of ; school building
No. ft tbe primary grades of tbe school
have been assigned to the Christian Mia
sion cnapel on eleventh avenue,
very nearly opposite tbe new build
lag. The outhouse of the school
is situated on tbe opposite side of tbe
ravine in tbe rear of the school and the
excrement from this vault as well as from
tbe water closet of a family in tbe neigh
borbood runs down through this ravine
and tbe children are obliged to cross over
it by means of a plank in reaching the
school outhouse. As tbe great majority
or little children affected with diphtheria
have livod in that neighborhood it is be
lieved the cause is thus explained; tbat
they have contracted it by inhalation of
the filthy atmosphere as the smell was
very annoying to residents in tbe vicinity
throughout the summer. Health Com
missioner Eyster has repeatedly attempted
to disinfect the vault as well as the ravine,
but it is next to an impossibility to do so.

contract for furnishing the government

Ibe entire vindication of Msj. John R
McGinnis, acting commandant at Rock

"I am vindicated, too, I claimed, in my
communication to the secretary of war.
tbat the contract formerly awarded was
$30,000 too high, and the iben secretary
of war, Endicott, refused to confirm the
contract and had it set aside, and re ad
tised for bids. Tbey came in over 130,
000 less than tney were before, by the
parties who bid the first time. I also
claimed that certain parties would make
certain affidavits, and tbe affidavits were
made as I represented. Come over into
the front room a minute until I get the
papers in the case, then I'll show you
something. I be Did the Orst tune bv the
oerea stone company, baaed on 7,300
yards, as advertised lor, was $144,905;
tneir Did tbe second time, on tbe same
basis, was $93,637, with a difference of
$52,263. These are the figures, I believe
that have been asked for. Isow, in re
gard to my taking up this Bght. Do you
see this little book? This is the printed
document in a case entitled 'Kumbaugh
& Schureman vs E. O. Eshelby, comp
troller City of Cincinnati. Thereby
hangs a tale. You will notice on page
four a resolution by the new city hall
committee, to employ Kumbaugh &
Schureman as architects to prepare plans
and superintend the erection of a new
city ball building to be erected on the
city ball block. Also a building on
George street between Central avenue
and John street, for police court pur
poses, said buildings not to exceed the
sum of $200,000 each. You will see by
tbat resolution that our firm was regu
larly emploved to make the plans for the
new city hall and tbe other building,
agreeing to pay us a salary ef five per
cent of the cost of the buildings, which
would have been about $20,000.
"I bad the plans nearly done, and was
about to offer them for acceptance when
I was visited by an agent of the Cleve
land Stone company, who asked me what
stone I waa going to use. I told him
tbat I would probably use principally
granite; at least I expected to use the
best material tbat I could find. He there
upon asked me to use the Cleveland
stone. I told bim no. lie thereupon
offered me seven per cent commission on
all of their stone 1 would use. I allowed
my feelings to get the belter of my judg
ment, ana answered bim quite hastily:
"inat seines tne case; l would not use
your stone now if you made a present of
hereupon the agent replied that I
would never be sorry but once tbat I did
not use their stone, and that once would
be always. I replied tbat I knew I would
always oe corry if I did use their stone,
and I would take my chances of being
sorry if I did not use it. A short time
after that I beard rumors that I was go
ing to have trouble to have my plans ac
cepted. As a matter of course, we won
the job by fair and square competition,
and created some feeling among other
architects who thought they bad the in
sidetrack. I paid little attention to tbe
rumors, as I thought it was merely a case
ol "sour grapes. 1 bmsbed tbe plans and
presented tbem to tbe council and had
them accepted without any extraordinary
trouble, and as a clincher got a voucher
of $750 issued to me on account, which I
presented to E. O. Esbelby, tbe comp
troller, occuping the same position a
auditor, who has charge of the funds and
must give all orders on tbe treasury. Ue
refused to honor the voucher. From that
commenced my trouble. I found then
that tbe rumors were not without foun
dation. But, instead of the trouble being
wiib tbe council, it was with tbe comp
troller. I thereupon got a writ of man
damus issued against the comptroller.
During tbe progress of the trial and sub
sequent events, I found tbat the Cleve
land Stone company were the instigators
of my trouble. Shortly after getting
my writ of mandamus, and before
tbe case was finally settled, tbe fact
ion got a bill passed bv the house of re
presentatives repealing the act under
wich I was appointed, without having
any damage clause in it to provide for
tbe payment of any work which I had
done. As a matter of course, I made a
stienuous flht against tbe passage of
this bill. I found the men who were
manipulating this bill was a small faction
from Cincinnati in connection with tbe
Cleveland Stone company. To cut a
long story short, I was finally beaten, and
bonds were issued under the new act to
build the city ball, for which the comp
troller got a certain per cent for selling
the bonds, which would not have been
the case bad tbe city hall been built un
der the act under which I was working;
and tbe Cleveland Stone company fur
nished tbe atone for tbe new city ball. I
was beat out of my salary of 920,000,
about 97 000 or which I bad already ex
pended on the work, and 93,000 court
costs and lawyer fees, consequently I
bad no love for the Cleveland Stone com
pany, and thereby got thoroughly ac
quainted with tbelr methods. When I
became aware of tbe fact tbat tbey were
interested in tbe contract for tbe Rock
Island dam and learned what the price
waa. I waa sure there was something
wrong in tbe matter, and also tbat here
was a cbanre to square accounts with
the Cleveland Stone company, and I
think tbat tbey feel satisfied tbat I
squared tbe account, although as you
see. I have been waiting four years for a
When asked if he proposed taking any
further action in the matter, Mr. Schure-
man's reply was:
That depends. Some people here in
Rock Island have felt it their duty to
bound me. and have stood in my way in
several instances, and have gone so far
aa to say tbat tbey would drive mo out of
town, and have interfered in my busi
ness. If I do not succeed here I will at
tribute it to this reason and will act ac
cordingly. If I should present a bill to
congress for services rendered, it would
be referred to tbe claims committee,
among which I have several acquain
tances, and are quite familiar with this
case, and consequently this would bring
about a congressional investigation, as
tbey would not pay tbe bill without ex
amining the case from beginning to end;
and there is no question but what I have
a right to a fee in the matter. It makes
no difference what my reasons were for
acting as I did. I rendered the govern
ment a service, for which they are bound
to pay me." -
Tbe Davenport Democrat-Qatette con
tains the following pertaining to tbe run
away girl spoken of in last nigbt's All
ocs: Thursday afttrnoon Carrie Speucer,
the eleven-year old daughter of a Clinton
carpenter, was traced by her father
through Rock Island to this city, and
by our police matron was located in the
resort of Liz' Hampton, on Iowa street,
and rescued. She is a frail, slight little
thing with no thought of wrong, and waa
sent here by a fast woman of Clinton
who gave her a dollar and directed her
to tbe person with whom she was found.
Her mother is said to have run away
from home some time ago, and to be liv
ing here in Davenport today. After her
departure Spencer married again. The
little girl says that her stepmother treats
her severely, and that she ran away to
escape her unkindnesa. She was an
feignedly happy, however, at seeing her
father again, and was glad to go home
with him again.

for the debts of the corporation.
