Who Will be Those to go to Washington?

Secre ary of War Endicott is expected
to complete bis report the coming week
and if there are to be any recommenda

plant for the manufacture of the Whit

end b the tri-city committee be
attendel to at once. The trinity
commit ee ought to start tomorrow or on
Mondaj at the outside, and there
shouid be a solid delegtion. Those
designated by Mayor McConochie
are Me srs. Morris Rosenfleld. Fred Weys
erbausi r, Fred Hasn and J. F. Robin
son. Those chosen hy Mr. Fred Hass,
of the Rock Island Citizens' Improve
ment aisociation. are Messrs. Phil Mitch
ell and Fred Weyerhauser Uafortu
nately. not one of these gentlemen can so
arrange his business affairs as to make the
trip ji st at this time. Were it a few
weeks later there would not be so much
difficulty about securing a committee
which could more readily comply. No
doubt my of the gentlemen named would
be of jreat ndvantajte to the project, as
all hae proved their usefulness in simi
lar undertakings in times past, but inas
much is all have stated the impossibility
of go ng now, a pressure is being
brouglit to bear on Mr. Fred Hass, who is
one of the mayor's choices, to go anyway.
not oi ly on bebalf of the city, but as the
repres :ntalive of the Improvement asso
ciatioi , of which he is the executive offl
cer. There are man? things that stronclv
favor Mr. Hass' acceptance of this mis
sion. Chief of these is his adaptability
to wo-k of tbis kind as evinced t.y the
uecets of efforts in the preliminaries of
the v aduct project and other measures
of a s milar kind, and also his familiarity
with many public men in Washington, as
well ts his thorough knowledge of the
Islam of Rock Island and the great, aim
for which the tri-cities as well
as he entire western states are
now zea'ously laboring. Another ad
vantage of the selection of Mr Hass is,
that he has his private affairs so ar
rangtd that he can leave for a longer
time ban those more actively engaged in
the pursuits of life. It is to be hoped
that Hr. Hass may be prevailed upon to
go. The suggestion has frequently been
made that Mayor McConochie, as the
head of the city government, should cerN
tainlgo to Washington, and exert bis
nflu"nce for a matter of so great impor-
tano to the city, and to the community.
If tl e mayor and Mr. Hass will consent
to g , Rock Island would rest perfectly

behalf of the gun factory would be ne

that the committee will not leave before

Waibington by Tuesday morning at the
outride, and this appears to be the pre
vail eg sentiment in Molioe. Mr. H. A.

Miss Kate Castieton greeted a fair
si; el audience at Harper's theatre in her
presentation of "A Paper Doll" last
eveniug. Miss (Justieton is the same
pietty modest little lady and she sang as
st'eelly as ever what she did sing, but
slic saw fit to punish those who compli
aeLledber by their presence, for those
who stayed away, by cutting the play
r ightfully and omitting some of her best
c-eations. The company was inferior In
every way to that which supported her
cn her visit to Rock Island a year ago.
Manager Steel has secured a hit in
Hoyt's '"A Tin Soldier" company, which

The Omaha Hotel Keeper Whom He
dwindled Want Hlaa Hail-- Nltoulrt
theMtat Let Hlaa Clot
Messrs. Schlank & Prince, proprietors
of the Windsor hotel at Omaha, are very
anxious that Forger Iae.wbo did them up
to the tune of about $160 by means of
cleverly drawn forged checks and who
was subsequently arres'ed at the Rock
Island house here while attempting the
same racket, should be turned over to
them that they may have the satisfaction
of properlv punishing him and perhaps of
recovering a part at least of his ill gotten
gains Which came out of their pockets.
Considerable correspondence has been ex
changed on the subject and Marshal Mil
ler antl the proprietors of the Rock Island
house are inclined to the belief that all
things considered, this is the best course
that presents itself. Ise, or as be passed
himself off here, Thatcher, and in Omaha,
Adams, failed in his purpose to defraud
in Rock Island. No one lost a cent on
the strength of his transactions and all
that he owes is bis board bill at the Rock
Island bouse and bis baggage still in
possession of the hotel will more than
cover that in value. In Omaha he actu
ally committed the crime, and it seems
that there he should be punished. There
doesn't appear to be a shadow of doubt
but that the man of many aliases could
be convicted here, but his crime was not
so great as it was at Omaha and he could
not be as severely punished perhaps. It
will cost the county of Rock Island at
least $150 to try him and all that is to be
gainert is a fee of $15 for the state's at
torney if he convicts him . It is the duty
of the local officers, and the Rock Island
house proprietors, who are the prosecut
ing witnesses, to see that the course of
justice is not defeated and in turning the
rascal over to the Nebraska authorities
there should not be any danger of escape.
The t-ir-t l.ov.- Conquered.
Henry La Fountain, husband of the
woman who eloped from Kansas City
with John Beatty, and who were inter
cepted at Davenport in their flight to
Canada, was in Davenport yesterday, and
last night returned to Kansas City with
his truant wife. When he first met her
at the police station they sat at opposite
sides of the room and talked in cold,
hard, unfeeling tones: then they weak
ened and sat on the same side and min
gled their tears together When it came
to a choice between her husband, chil
dren and good name, or her lover, Mrs.
La Fountain concluded she would rather
bear the ills she had than to fly to others
that she knew not of, and a reconciliation
as the result. The woman stated that
she would never attempt to elope again.
but there is every reason to believe that
she will if Beatty ever turns Hp in Kan
sas City. Last evening Beatty, with tears
n his eyes, bade her farewell. The
woman wept and expressed the hope that
he wouid never hereafter have any bad
luck. La Fountain shook hands with
Beatty and told him that he hoped he
would prosper, and that the next time be
would have better success than he bad
tbis time. Beatty hoped so La Foun
tain and his wife left the police station
and Beatty followed shortly afterward.
Beatty will remain in the city for a few
days and will then probably return to
Kansas City. He says that the woman
is deeply in love with him and that if
they ever meet again it will be a coldday
when La Fountain will know any thing

there was a reasonable prospect of good
