"I like the course the Argui in corns
mon with the other go-ahead papers of
Illinole It taking toward the peddler nui
aoce," remarked a merchant accoating a
reprewntailTe of thia paper thii mori
Injr. "and I do moat heartily hope," t",e
gentleman continued, "that our cii)
council will adopt some means, either by
license or otherwise, of dealing with tbtie
Itinerants. It is a duty the m i
nicipal KOTernrrent owes not only toe
established merchant, but the coti
munity. But there is another class of
tradesmen that the law ought to reach if
"And to what clas do you allude 1" n
quired tbe reporter.
"I mean those merchants who drop in
on a city and remain only during he
busy season and are then off again. Tl.ey
have no interest at heart in tbe city, ure
here only for what they can make out of
it and then pack up and clear out. Now
understand me; don't misinterpret what
I say. I am not one of those narrow
minded men who would for a mortem
discourage a new merchant coming to
Rock Island with a view of settling I ere
and remaining with us. I am a tier
cbant myself. I came here once an 1 I
csme to stay and hare done well, and
am doing well. Further than ibis.
I want to say that if any
msn comes to Rock Island to emhar in
business be it in my line or In seme other
line, and bis object is to locate here, I will
cheerfully extend to bim tbe right I. and
of fellowship and do all I can to give bim
a s'art. I am a member of the Rock Isl
and Citizens' Improvement apsocis.inn,
one of tbe main purposes of which is to
encourage new mercantile and indutitrial
establishments and I eiclsim as I have
before, the more the merrier 1 The more
the competition the better for the p.-ople
and the better for tbe merchants. Tbe
more business bouses we have, let me
further say the more will our peoplt stay
at borne to buy. But to return to the mat
ter of transient merchants wbo com and
go as tbe winds of morning and ba re no
interests in tbe city or its people, wbo pay
no taxes and don't even live here, I am
down on them. They have no reputa
tion to make and no psrtictiUr object in
building up trade. They are in for the
grab during the rushing season, and when
it is over are gone."
"What would you do to prevent this
injustice to tbe established merchant and
unfairness to the public T"
"That is what has been worrying me.
I don't know that tbe law can rewh it,
but I wieb it cou'd. I like plenty of bus
iness bouses and heaps of business, but I
rejoice in teeing our own established
merchants and those who bsve cone to
stay getting it."

A robltery was committed at th s Si ha

promptly brought to justice thro tgh the
good judgment and prompt action of Mr.
Henry Scbafer. Shortly befor-i mid
night Mr. Schater observed a loarder,
named Frank White, come dowi stairs
and leave tbe hotel. His suspici ns be-,
log aroused, be went up stairs anl found
the door of a room, occupied by Olof
Johnston, of Reynolds, open. He en
tered and aroused Mr. Johnston, who at
once discovered that bis watch aiid $1.25
was missing. Mr. Scbafer at nice com
municated with tbe police, who lenrned
thit a man answering White's description

were advised of the fact, and dipt. Mar

Yesterday morning two bagj of shot

The committee, representing theaMod
ern Woodmen camps of Rock Island
county, through J. L. Haas, chairman,
and Geo. W. Gamble, secretary, have
sent out a circular to the 1.200 camps of
the order la which it says:
Since the issuing of the call for a spe
cial meeting of the head camp by our
committee . and the forwarding of the
same to the camps throughout tbe juris
diction for action on tbe same, something
has occurred which calls for an imme
diate reply from us. A circular has been
sent to tbe camps, denouncing us "as
schemers, as attempting to spring a trap,
as tools and instruments of McKinnie, as
being dictated to by McKinnie," and
winding up with an appeal to all to
stand by the executive council and tl.e
head consul. This venomous thing is
neither signed nor dated; we do not
know where it comes from, nor wbo
prompted its issue. This fact alone
should be a sufficient reason for every
good, true and loyal Woodman, to give
it what it deserves, contempt and scorn.
We submit to you, that we appear be
fore you, not with any intent to ruin, but
with the sincere and earnest hope and
wish to protect, to save our order; we
do not try to sneak in your midst anony
mously, with closed visor, afraid to sign
our names, but we stand before you frank
and open; we are willing and ready to
pi nee ourselves upon record and to give
our names and persons as pledges for our
honest and loyal intentions.
Tbe circular further declares:
We are not schemers, nor tools, but
friends, true impartial friends of the
order. Tbe spirit of impartiality, of
loyalty to our brotherhood, of meeting
out justice to all. and punishment to
those who deserve it. be their name Root
or McKinnie, has prevailed throughout
our proceedings. We assure you as
men, that not one word of dander, not
even of unfriendliness has been uttered
by us or either of us against anyone. Tbe
charge that McKinnie was in our meet
ing and dictated our action is false and
cowardly as the lie itself, as the heart of
bim who uttered it! McKinnie was in town
when we met, but the very moment his
name was mentioned and the suggestion
was made to invite him, tbe convention
rote in unanimous protest and adjourned.
Root and bis friends met tbe same re
fusal In the Woodstock meeting, at tbe
same day and bonr, unknown to us and
300 miles away from us.
In conclusion the following sensational
statement is made:
There is some wrong somewhere, some
great and grievous wrong. If you doubt
it, tske your last number of tbe Echo,
show it to your postmaster and ask bim
about camps 717 Forest City, Neb., 746
Msquon, Neb , 894 Westerfield, 111., and
he will tell you there is no such postofflce
in the states named. Then ask Root and
the "Echo," a, hy these fictitious, non
existing camps are on the roll and in
quire whether death losses, and how
many have been paid from tbem. Such
are our latest discoveries, such are our
returns and these are only a few to
our call, and with awe and fear we look
to further developments.

The second annual meeting of tbe
Pilot's association of the Upper Missis
sippi has been in session at LaCrosse for
the past two days. There are present
from thia vicinity, Capts. W. H. Whis
ler, John O'Connor, of this city, Gary
Denberg, Davenport, J. H. Wooders and
J. E. Hugunin, Cordova, J. M. Hathorn
and J. W. Rambo, LeClaire, and many
others from Clinton. Albany and Princes
Officers have been elected as follows:
President J. W. Rambo, of LeClaire.
Vice President Joseph Bulsson of
Secretary M. M. Looney of LaCrosse.
Treasurer V. A. Bigelow of LaCrosse.
Board of Directors F. R. Baldwin,
Clinton; Joseph Hawthorne. LeClaire;
John Wooders, Cordova; Walter Blair,
Davenport; William H. Whlsler, Rock Isl
and. The time has been taken up lately in
the discussion of various matter relating
to the raft pilot's avocation, condition o
the river and stesmboating generally. A
good deal of time was devoted to Sunday
work, and although no resolutions were
adopted, nor any action of that nature
taken, tbe board of directors were di
rected to correspond with owners and
contractors on the subject. The pilots
desire not to be misunderstood; tbey do
not propose to make a demand for Sun
day, but simply to let their feelings be
known and learn how owners regard it.
They believe they are as well entitled to
a day of rest as anybody, and that better
and safer work can be done by giving
crews that day. They see no logical rea
son why the men who makes logs in the
woods and the men who make lumber in
tbs mills, should be any more entitled to
Sundsy than tbe men wbo pilot the logs
and lumber to their destination. This is
the first Sunday moven.ent among west
ern stesmboatmen since tbe time old Cap
tain Smith Harris tried it on packet busi
ness and failed. But log-towing is not
packet business, and not to be put on
the same basis.
The place of the next meeting was left
to tbe board of directors, but it will like
ly be LsCrosse.
A telegrsm was forwarded President
Harrison, entering a protest against the
appointment of John D. Sloane aa su
pervisor inspector of stesm vessels for
tbe Fifth district on tbe grounds of his
ineligibility. Tbe pilots claim that Mr.
Sloane'a only experience has been as sec
ond assistant engineer in the navy, and
that be in no sense fulfills the plain pro
visions of tbe law.
