As tbe Rev. H. O. Liodeblad opened
and read hla mail this morning, bis little
girl, who happened to be at his aide, said
as he opened one letter, "That's an invi
tation." As he glanced over it. be saw
the letter was signed "Fire Csps," and
that it aald Kybladh should be avenged.
"If you don't leave town in twenty-tour

Tbe letter Is illustrated with a skull and
Mr. Lindeblad. however, docs not at
all look upon this aa serious. Be says
that on the 18th of of this month he will
have been here ten years. He bas al
ways been heartily and well treated, not
only by the members of his own church,
and by the Swedish people as a whole,
bat by all persons of tbe different na
tionalities and creeds. Under this ten
years none except one druken person, has
at any time shown him any kind of dis
respect or unbecoming behavior. In a
convention lately held in regard to the
moral status of Moiine, be said: "Tak
ing everything into consideration. Mo
line can in moral atatua com Dare with
most any town of its size, and is ahead
of a good many in many respects." Be
considers tbe letter more of a ioke than
anything else, and is not scared at all, as
he feels his is a nehteous case for the
good ot morality. We may state that the
letter was not mailed in Moiine. Tbe
writing, besaya, of name and address Is
similar to twelve unopened letters re
ceived in February from Galesburg.
It seems from tbe Galesburg Republic
can-Register thit several threatening let
ters have been received at the borne of
Lawyer G. A. Lawrence within a week
or so, and the attempt of Thursday was
in tbe direct line of fulfillment of the
threats. It seems that the flrat idea of
tbe sneaking and dastardly crew was to
destroy Mr. Lawrence's barn. Wednesday
Mrs. Lawrence paid a visit to the barn on
some errand. She found that one of the
windows bad been opened, and that
some one bad entered that way and bad
unlocked the back door. To ber
consternation shs observed that on
the barn floor there bad been
heaped a pile of boxes, surrounded with
paper and kindling, and lined with dry
kindling. Near by were found a couple
of sheets of unruled blank paper rolled
up, in which was a loose bundle of
matches. The purpose of the whole ar
rangement was unmistakable. It was
this attempt, which, by the way. Mr.
Lawrence deemed best to keep from the
press, that caused him to have officers
patrol bis residence that night. Early in
tbe evening, while he was at supper, a
noise was heard at the window. Be
made a mighty spring and in an Instant
was outside with revolver in hand. Be
could see nothing. In the shutter, bow
ever, was found another threatening let
ter. Bow it came there was a big mys
tery. Next afternoon, Thursday, Mr.
Lawrence was down town. Mrs. Law
rence was standing in the kitchen lookine
out of tbe west window. It waa about 8
o'clock. She saw two men standing near
the barn conversing Mrs. Lawrence was
feeling lonely, and she stepped to the
telephone to talk to ber busband and tell
him that there were strangers around.
She then stepped out upon the front
porch to keep watch. While she was
thus eogaeed she smclled something like
clothes burning, and so remarked to her
domestic. She hurried inside, and as she
did so heard a loud rapping on the door
that, as she says, caused her heart to sink
nearly to ber feet. She threw the door
open and saw standing there Mrs. J. B.
Buses, her next door neighbor, who said:
You're bouse is on fire." The alarm
was speedily sent ana me nre depart
ment waa soon on hand, but its ser
vices were not needed. It seems that
Mr. Boggs waa also keeping watch of
he Lawrence premises. She very
fortunately glanced out of a window of
her home in time to see a mass of flame

house. She rushed to tbe spot, and lean

og material out before tbe porch bad

side bad been stuffed with shavings.
kindling and paper, all saturated with
oil. Around this tile, cloth was wapped,
also saturated. Then the sacking bad
been rolled around several times, making
a dangerously inflammable mass.
Tbe Republican-Register continues:
Tbe general opinion la that tbe purpose
of this persecution is to intimidate Mr.
Lawrence, Dr. Hatenus and others and
cause tnem to yield to tbe Kybladh in
terest. This is tbe wbole burden of the
warnings. The communications are
especially designed to terrify the women
folk, and abound In phrases insulting to
them and threatening them and their
children. Tbey are by all means too
filthy to be given publicity, and only tbe
most groveling and debased mind could

TUK NEW BRIDGE.
How the Work la Proft-reaelng That la
ta Cwaaeet the Lawtr Ead af Rack
lalaad Conaiy With the lewaSlde.
Speaking of the new bridge enterprise
which is to connect the lower end of
Rock Island county with Muscatine, the
News-Tribune of the latter city says:
Material for the high bridge continues
coming in ana tne piles of it on tbe levee
are assuming huge proportions. Nearly
one naii toe amount of stone needed in
tbe construction of the piers is already
on hand and the greater portion of tbe
entire quantity of stone required bas been
quarried but will not be shipped in for
some time as it would only serye to block
the way. It is expected that from 2,300
to 2,700 yards of stone will suffice to com
plete all tbe piers. Tbe three barge loads
of fine heavy timber towed up from Bur
lington are being unloaded on tbe levee.
The timber is cut from tbe best of pine
logs and will be used for grillage pur
poses. There is 120.000 feet of it and it
will be placed over the top of the piling
for the stone piers to rest on. Purchas
ing Agent Kile, who has just returned
from tbe east, says that tbe company ex
pect to transfer the superintendent of
masonry and his force of men to Musca
tine by tbe 1st prox. There were certain
unlocked for drawbacks in Ohio, else the
men could have been brought here sooner
to commence dressing the stone. Mr.
Kile is more than pleased with tbe smooth
progress of the work so far. It is true
that the driving of piling is going for
ward slowly, but be thinks the contrac
tor. N. B. Gelatt, is doing nobly consid
ering that he was pushing ahead while
encountering difficulties that would have
discoursed many another.
Ordinarily the subcontractor drives
from thirty-five to forty pieces of piling
and if less it is considered a poor d7's
work. At no time has Contractor Gelatt
succeeded in driving more than fifteen,
and some days even as low as eight. At
the place where work was first begun on
a foundation for pier No. 11, tbe piling
were made to penetrate the river bottom
with great difficulty, owing to tbe gravel
Tbe character of the bottom was even
worse at tbe next point for it consisted
of alternating layers of sand, gravel and
clay until rock was reached. At tbe
third point where the driver is now lo
cated, sand and eravel are offerine resis
tance. Mr. Kile is of the opinion that
work will have advanced sufficient to per
mit of the raising of the cantilever span
by the first of February.
The Revival at the lint Bantlat
Two large congregations greeted the
speakers at the First Baptist church yes
terday. In the morning Rev. Oilman
Parker, who bas had a very successful
experience as an evangelist, as well as a
psstor, delivered the first of a series of
sermons which will be continued every
evening except Saturday, until further
notice. Pastor H. C. Leland will devote
his energies to the conduct ot the choir,
and work with inquirers. He will sing
gospel solos each evening. Rev. W. B.
Cullis. of Chicago, and nis sincins hel
per. Prof. R. C. Sargent, conducted
a most deeply impressive service.
Rav. Cullis is a man of great power in
the pulpit and of wide experience, hav
ing made three evangelistic tours in Eng
land and traveled extensively in Europe.
It is hoped that Rock Island may be fav
ored by his presence and labor at some
future time. The Baptist church are
wise in holding their extra meetings at a
season of tbe year when tbe weather is
favorable to a large attendance.
Tbe song service at the First Baptist
church tonight begins at 7:30 p. m., the
sermon at 8 p. m. and inquiry meeting at
8.30. Those in attendance will have an
opportunity to retire at the close of
either service, and so that those who can
not be present si the opening msy feel
free to come in at any time.
There was an ugly rumpus and a
rather unfriendly exchange of arms on
the ferry last night between Wm. Adams,
the boat carpenter, and Moore Foster,
of this city. Adams was acting as col
lector, and the trouble arose over the
collection of fare, and nickels and dimes.
and other small change were scattered all
over the deck in the melee.
A new counterfeit dollar bas made its
appearance. Three different ones were
offered in succession by different persons
at a single bank this morning.

ner of Sevsnteenth street and Sixth ave
nue Saturday, a large wallet containing
tbe two gold watches and chain which
were stolen from Otto Sieb's saloon ten
weeks ago. The (60 io money taken at
the same time bad been pocketed,
but tbe other property was doubtless
secreted where found, by the thieves.
The Carnival te be Repeated.
The Irrawadi Canoe club over the river
held a meeting a few days ago and took
action looking toward the repetition next
summer or the "Carnival of Boats"
which was given so successfully last
July by the canoe club and boat club of
Davenport. Tbey are beginning tbns
early to agitate tbe project with tbe end
in view of making next summer's carni
val a pageant many times grander and
more extensive even than that given be
fore. Tbe business men generally of tbe
three cities have expressed a desire to co
operate In making tbe carnival an attrac
tion, not only for our own people, but to
bring people from a distance, and to do
this will require much preliminary work
by the canoe club and boat club. A
committee was appointed at tbe canoe
club meeting to have this work in charge,
consisting of Messrs. E. S. Hammstt, M.
Bunker and Edgar E. Snider.
Aa Early Siettler.
Among persons recently deceased at
Davenport, is Mrs. Elizabeth Mcintosh,
widow of the late Robert Mcintosh, one
of the pioneers of Iowa. Mrs. M. was
the last of a name once famous in Iowa
Her husband'a brother, James, was one of
tbe eight persons who laid out the town
of Davenport In 1836, each holding i
quarter section of land. Be waa a book'
binder by trade, and was at one time
binder for the territory, and perhaps tbe
early stale. Be and bis brother Robert
were esteemed very wealthy at one time.
Robert remained reasonably so until bis
death a few years ago. James, who was
generally considered the wealthiest dur
ing tbe flush days of 1854-6. waa ruined
In tbe financial crash of 1857, and died in
penury in 1862. Tbe brothers were al
ways politically divided. James was i
whig and Robert a democrat, until the
whig party went to pieces and the re pub
lican party was formed, when Robert
identified himself with tbe latter, and his
brother became a democrat. The death
of Robert's widow removes the laat of tbe
name from the earth, as neither left any
sons. Des Homes UapxUxL

Saturday night was not the silver an
niversary of the marriage of Rev. and
Mrs. G. W. Gue. The baopy occasion
does not come for a or night yet, but
the surprise of which the estimable con
pie were made tbe recipients, was no less
enjoyable and appropriate. There was
simply a mistake in dates, but that did
not interfere with the success of the oc
casion or detract from the spirit with
which the token of love and esteem was
presented or received. About one hun
dred friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gue as

school building No. 1, acted as master
of the situation and with becoming grace
presented to Mr. and Mrs. Gue a silver
tea service beautiful in design and rich in
Mr. Gue though overcome by the testi
monial, made a fitting response express
ing the gratitude of himself and wife for
the evidence of regard and affection.
An interval of social intercourse fol
lowed, after which tbe guests departed
for their respective homes happy in the
thought that they had left tbeir pastor
and his good wife happy.
