Satuiday night, through the courtesy
of Mrs. Aueast Herkert. manageress of

could appreciate the hardshipa that come

had extended tbe entire force an invita

bad also invited Mayor McCcnochio
and City Clerk Koehler. These c racial,
together with Marshal Miller. Deputy
Marshal Long and tbe entire polics force
were present promptly at 7 o'clocl. Just
before tbe onslaught was com nenced
with knife and fork upon one of the
finest spreads that haa ever been seen in

placing bis right hand in his breast in true

as their chief, this caoe, a alight token of
tbeir esteem and good will toward you,
and as evidence of their appreciation of
you as the chief officer of our city. To
surprise one, to take Dim by storm, so to
speak and give him evidence of fr endship
and respect ia a happy , a pleasing custom,
for it shows that even in this world of
fuss and strife there is still room in men's
hearts for the consideration and cultiva
tion of friendship, and tbat the efforts,
the sironif and honest efforts .f those
whom tbe will of a free people
have placed at their head to rill
their trust honorably, to be just and
impartial to all, are being app-eciated.
And that friendly acta, the friendly
conduct of one toward others ars not be
ing forgotten, but remembered, herinued
and treasured until on appropriate occa
sions the appreciation of tbe tame find
outward expression by unexpected, un
sought and spontaneous offerings from
friendly hands. At such moments it is
not the intrinsic value of tn: gift by
which you measure the extent of your
friends feelings toward you. It is the
kindly expression of the eye the frank,
friendly words, tbe firm friendly pressure
of the band which accompany t jeir offer
ing, and which must convey to you the
impression, and tbe knowledge tbat what
they bring they bring with good will and
true feeling for you. So take tt is cane in
tbe spirit in which it is given, ss an en.
blcm of the reliance you can alvays place
on the givers and their esteem and re
spect for their chief magistrate.
lie then handed tbe mayor a beautiful
black ebony gold ornamented cane suita
bly Inscribed as follows:
To Major Wm. McConochle, fron hi police

The mayor was surprised at his very
tasty Christmas remembrance, but be
found expression of bis gratitude in the
Mr. Marshal and Gcntli-mcn of tbe olice F"rte:
This is indeed a surprise something
never anticipated by me. Fut I fully
appreciate the beautiful gift and the kind
sentimeuts accompanying it. Not so
much for ita iotrinsis value, but as tbe
recipienta: under such circuo. stances, it
would aptear 1 have earned jour confi
dence and esteem. When I was a boy
my idea of a cane waa always associated
with an old man Bametbing ti lean upon
for support. Perhaps the boys by this
presentation wit be to give lae a gentle
reminder tbst my barkais drifting upon
tbe leasbore, which I suppose is all right
and I cannot nor will not deny. I
again thank you gentlemen fir this beau
tiful cane and hope I will never be called
upon to use it against my fell jw man un
less it lie in defense of law and order.
Before I close. I will take Ibis oppor
tunity of saying a word in re half of the
preaent poliix force. If there is anything
have a weakness for, or take special
pride in, it is the present Rock Island
police force. I am even va n enough to
think it is the beat and flntsl force our
city ever had. Some of you are veterans
of more than twenty years' standing, and
yourcliaracter and standing las not been
lowered by your calliag. You have all
the requlalta qualifications that make
good and efllcieot officers, and you are
one and all endowed with U at noblest of
all qualifications you are gmtleireo.aod
know how to act as such with all with
whom you come in contact, no matter
what is their condition, even though you
have to sometimes use extreme measures
to impress it upon them. I hope you
will excuse me, taken at a disadvantage
a, l nave been to mis cate, ana accept
my thanks. I fully appreciate tbe gift.
Capt. Robert Koehler also made r
mark,, complimenting Mrs. Herkert on
her splendid supper and expressing the
appreciation of himself and the others of
her excellent taste and culinary skill.
Officer Brennan made a t nef but happy
speech, and other, were called upon, but
they were so awe stricken with tbe elo
que nee of tbe marshal and so anxious to

Owing to the exacting duties of the
officers, tbe whole affair dil not last more

Of one of tbe features of the wrestling
tournament at Davenport Friday night
tbe Timet saya:
Tbe third bout waa tnnounced to be
butween Tom Connor,, 'he champion of
America, and Mr. Cauvic, of Kock Is
land. The champion ttipulated that if
he did not get a fall out of tbe Hock Is
lander in fifteen minutes the bout should
be declared a draw.
Mr. Couvic's splendi I and powerful
proportions were in str king contrast to
the smaller and compact duiiu oi Con
nors. Tbe champion tt once led out for
a loving neck embrace and tbe Kock Is
lander was nothing loth Couvic showed
a fondness for Conner's left leg. Ho
ever, tbe champion p jrmitted the hold,
gracefully falla on hi belly, and when
the Hock Islander takes a waist hold to
turn Lira over, be raises to a frog-poai
lion, and breaks away from bis powerful
opponent s embrace. ' After many repe
tilions of this line of wrestling with tbe
Rock Islander, growinc more weary, and
frequently falling upau his knees to es
cape, tbe champion retches Tor bis legs,
tbe bout ia declared a draw, because time
was called on tbe flftei n minutes without
a fall. Mr. Couvic mar be proud of his
bout with Connors, ie acknowledged
champion wrestler of 1 merica.

There is probably no place in Iowa
where greater excitement has prevailed
for the past few days than in the little
village of Eldridge. nine miles out on tbe
v., at. & St. P. road. Tbe excitement
Mas arisen to fever beat, and there is not
an inhabitant of the place but who is
grestly wrought over the depredation of
tbe White Caps. A few prominent citi
zens of tbe place have received-notifications

at once make all neceasary arrangements

the bold words attached to the missives
tbat have been received by these,citizens.
Dr. C. T. Kemraererbss received a note
through tbe mails from an alleged White
Cap which contained a cartridge of thirty:
eight calibre, wrapped up in a piece of
brown paper contained a drawing in red
ink of a coffin and cross bones. Tbe ini
tials "C. T. K." were written upon the face
of tbe coffin: "You Next I" in large let
ters were printed above the picture and
underlined, while below appeared tbe
words. "Fair Warning!" The envelope
was a home made one of pieces of
coarse brown wrapping "paper pasted to
gether and tbe address was "C. T. Kem
merer. Eldridge." The name of the doctor,
as will be seen, was incorrectly spelled.
and tbe state was left out all together. It
ia claimed that Station Agent Calkins and
a few other reoidents of the village, have
received notes similar to the one by Dr.
Krerainerer, bat they are not of such a
threatening character. Tbe people of the
Tillage are completely aroused, and they
propose to make a thorough investiga
tion of the doings of tbe white caps, and
bring the authors of the mysterious and
death warning letters to justice. Some
sensational developments are likely to
occur in the village in a day or two.

There is nothing like success in the
world, and the average man of common
sense appreciates what his fellow man
oes. Tbe weakest and most perceptibly
organ of man is his stomach, which is
more apparent about the holidays than at
any other time of the year. Men and
women as well as children look forward to
the holidays with fond anticipations. Tbe
merchant who can anticipate their wants
and lay in goods to meet their demands
is a jewel and should by common right
receive tbe trade and thanks of all who
love the good things of this life. One
