Phil. M Her. City Marshal. Rock Island, III.:
Dear Sir: Your letter of inquiry in
refereice to Edward A. Ise at hand, and
in reply beg leave to stHte that he was
well I nown here some years ago, his
father being at that time judge of the po
lice court, and shortly after his father's
death Edward left the city. We have
heard from him only through inquiries
made t y the police authorities in differ
ent cit es south and west. I think there
is an i diriment now against him in Bal
timorv Md , and immediately upon the
receipt of your letter I notified Marshal
Frey hi its purport. You will perhaps
hear I urn him. Ise's mother resides at
78 Wist street, this city. We have no
crimim 1 charges against him. However,
he wa always, suspected of being
crooked. Very respectfully.
Henry Hopper Chief of Police.

A .! i.nin Minister Returns In His
Own queer Way Thank to Those
'ho Assisted H in In Knek Island
About two months ago a well appear
ing stranger came to Rock Island and
at once made known his mission as that
of raising funds for the spread of the
gospel among his native people in the
northwest. He gave his name as Rev
Theodore A. Schnitger, a German Luth
eran minister, and he made known his
object so plainly and so pathetically .too,
that be met with generous response and
accumulated considerable funds. Al
most every minister of the gospel in
Rock Island contributed, as did mauy
of our professional men, manufactur
ers and merchants. Very few peo
ple who aided him have perhaps
thought of him since his departure, but
the other day Mr. J. J. Reimers, of the
Rock Inland Lumber company, received
through the mail inclosed in a large en
velope, a letter bearing the postmark of
Buff.lo, N. Y., and the address of which
completely covered the entire envelope,
the prefix appearing in large letters
"Hons," etc. Mr. Reimers opened the
letter and at the top was written in a
fairly good hand, "Postoffice and Head
quarters, De Peren, Brown county, Wis
consin, near Green By," and the address
which is extracted as follows:

Then follows special mention of
many of our business men h re

says aided him, and which he addresses
as "their excellencies" and "dear breth

refers to other letters he has written to

that our national congress "the princes
