AN OLD TIME EVENT.
Washington' Birthday was
Once Marked Here.
Tl e First Train from Lake Miehijcsn
the niMitmlppI Thirty-Six Years
' ko Today. .-A t.rnml Jollifleatlon
loaay being the 158th anniver
an of the birth of the father of
hie country, an event of tbe great
Mt importance in our national his
sir y, is likewise tbe thirty tilth
anniversary of one of the greatett
ev ma in local history. On Wed-
netday. February 22, 1854, Rock
Isli.nd and Davenport joined in jolliflca
tio i over tbe completion of the first rail-
roa J from tbe great lakes totbe Mississippi.
Th i cities were gaily decorated, flags
flot ted everywhere, cannon boomed, and
everybody gratified a disposition to res
joiie. At night there was universal !l
Th.- great Chicago & Rock Island rail
roa 1 bad been completed tbe first great
spsn of its wonderful system, which has
ein-e proven oue of the most important
fac ors of our inter-state commerce. In
Fel ruary, 1851, the legislature char
tend the company, in October of the
san c year, the contracts for the con
tri clion and equipment were let; in
Ap ll 1852, the first estimate for work
uptn it was paid: in February 1854,
thn e years from the date of its charter.
ana twenty-two months after ground
had been broken the work was complet
ed, and trains commenced running its
entire length of 181 miles. Sheffield &
Far nam were the contractors, and it was
under their contract that Mr. John War
ner and the late W. h Whitman were
plai ed in the path that led them to Rock
On that noted twenty second of Feb
ma y. at 8:8u a .. the mayor, common
council and a large number of merchants
t le party numbering 250 left Chicago
on ibe first train that ever started from
that city for the Mississippi river. Tbe
pat era of that week wt re full of accounts
of ibe celebration of tbe great triumph.
Thi day was one of "the most delightful
of ibe season, and the genial sunbhine.
and tbe exbilerating atmosphere chimed
n vlth the exultant spirit which sparkled
n t le eye and shone on the countenance
of tvery one of that goodly company,'
sail one sheet. The train was tastefully
orn imentcd with flags and evergreens,
and its arrival at the different towns along
the line was greeted with the shouts of
the people, and the firing of cannon. At
Jolit, Morris, Ottawa, LaSalle, Peru,
Tisl ilwa, Gencseo and Moline, the ex-
cumon party received accessions, and
wht n it arrived at Rock Island, the then
tern inus, its passengers were three hun-
dret and fifty in number
Tie reception by Rock Island and Dav-
enp rt "was a magnificent spectacle,"
said the Chicago Preas at that time:
Tl nusands of people lined the streets,
and crowded the doors and windows as
tbe ;toces8in parsed in Ruck Island , fair
ladi -s waved their haudkercbiet's. and
stoit men and juuihs shouted exultingly,
wbi e ever and anon the thunder of can
non boomed over the Mississippi, arous
ing :be echoes from the majestic bluffs.
It as a glorious day for Rock Island and
for Davenport. The citizens of those
places had looked forward to it for
years, some of them with fear and
tumbling, lest their eyes should not
beh ild it. Hundreds of people from
tbe coni'uous country in Illinois and
owi had come in to witness the scene,
and to mingle their shouts and congratu
latir ns with their city neighbors. Dele-
gatl ins were present from most of tbe
rive towns from Dubuque to St. Louis.
and some had come from the far interior
towns of Iowa, for thty knew that the
am h! of the iron horse upon the banks
of the Mississippi was but an earnest of
his speedily appearing beyond it. and
atre cbing away on his destined course
ow trd tbe Pacific. We think we are not
abO"e the mark in estimating tbe number
present on tbe arrival of the train at from
five to six thousand."
tl a well has that prophecy which was
made, as many often are, in the enthusiasm
of tbe hour verified. The great iron
stee I did not halt at Rock Island . In
less than a year after he had leaped
across the Mississippi and linked tbe
cities of Rock Island and Davenport, tbe
states of Illinois and Iowa, together with
'ba ids of steel." Still the iron horse did
not rest. Encouraged by the improve
ments that time made, in his condition, he
spet on westward, first to Iowa City, then
to t.- Moines, and in fifteen years he
was slaking his thirst in tbe Missouri and
in s veil teen yeara he could have coursed
his vay to the Pacific .
8 i that we can mingle with the patri
otism that fills our hearts today, thoughts
thai spring from home pride, and
wbi e we give vent to our joyous im
pulses let us stop for consideration of
tbis one sober thought What are we to
day as a city and what are we to make
this season tell for usV Are we to go
a!ie tl and build good streets and encour
age lasting improvements, or are we to
relat into indifference and watch tbe
proi ress of other cities?

The illustrious Dan McGiniy is dead,
and bis ghost which first haunted the
docks at break of day, is now playing
havoc in this vicinity. At any rate it
took possession of a horse on tbe bridge
line, which bears Dan's immortal name and
it came near leading the animal, together
with its plucky driver and a car load of
passengers "to the bottom of the sea" last
evening. Dave Fitzgerald, who is acting
as axtra driver, had just turned from
Third avenue into Twenty-fourth street
about 7 o'clock last evening, when his
horse, "McGinty," made a plunge for
ward. "Fiiz" put on tbe breaks and
stopped the wheels.but "McGinty" went
right along. Tbe gates at Sec
ond ayenue were down, Fitzgerald
saw the impending danger, and be
pulled and sawed with both hands,
but "McGinty" simply "swallowed the
bit" and streaked it ahead, dragging
the wheel bound car over the rails like a
sled . There were several passengers in
the car, and realizing their jeopardy,
Fitzgerald yanked and yelled, but "Mc
Ginty" kept on going. He went right
through the gates, but Fitzgerald stayed
right with bim. "McGinty'' took his
load over tbe track in safety just as an
approaching engine passed, and then
tbe car jumped the track, and "McGinty"
came off his high horse. Three bars of
tbe gates were broken, which are being
replaced by the street car company to
day, but no further damage was done.
"McGinty" is a special horse which is not
driven regularity. He was transferred to
the blue line by Assistant Superln tendent

A petition is being circulated here
which will be signed by all tbe free
holders asking Congressman Gest to use
Lis icfluence in securing an appropriation
to be used in finishing improvements be
gun at various points in this vicinity.
Those who are posted in the changes of
the river channel claim that unless the
work is done here early In the season that
navigation will have to be suspended
above Dallas because the boats cannot
pass in an ordinary stage let alone when
the water gets low. It is claimed that
the sediment which comes from the bay
is doing the most of the work. Tbe bay
should be dredged and tbe wing dams and
shore protection finished while the water
is at a good stage in order that tbe cur
rent may cut a channel through the al
ready formed sandbar, otherwise, as al
ready stated, navigation above this point
will have to be suspended it is feared
As the river is the cheapest carrier of
freight to all the riyer towns it will be a
serious blow to them all. We trust that
Mr Gest may be able to get tbe bill

SHOT BY HER SON.
Accident to Mrs.
Mhe t sit Irmly teavra a Loaded Re
volver Within the Reach of Her
Twelve Year Old Boy. Who Vlrra
Ballet lota Her Body.
Mrs. Wm. Ktirth, of 720 Tenth street,
was shot through the arm, the bullet
lodging in her left breast, where it still
remains, by her son Willie, twelve years
of age, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Kurth
had taken a drawer from a bureau on the
second floor, carried it down stairs and
placed it on a table to look for something.
In tbe drawer was a revolver which Mrs.
h-urtti did not think was in condition to
do any harm, so tbe thought of
any damage resulting from her boy
getting possession of tbe flrearm
did not enter her mind. But the
boy's eyes soon fell upon the revolver and
of course he wanted it above all things,
aLd he got it. He pulled the trigger i
couple or times, wnen tbe youth was
alarmed and the mother shocked to see
the revolver discharge. The bullet from
a 86 .calibre chamber, struck Mrs. Kurth
on the left arm, passed through and im
bedded itself in her left breast, where it
still remains. Dr. Carter was called, and
while be does not pronounce the case as
necessaiily alarming, several days must
elapse before any Idea of the outcome can
Mr. Kurth bad the same revolver out
on New Year's day and bad attempted to
shoot a rabbit with it, hut it failing to go
off, he brought it home and threw
it aside, thioking that there was no dan
ger of it being discharged, though be
knew the bullet was there. Mrs. Kurth,
however, did not know it was loaded. It
is the same old. old story that neoDle
will never learn to profit by.
Port Byron a Woe.
The end is not yet in the much mooted
Port Byron Afro Ameiican school tres
pass case. The femd excitement which
has permeated the commuulty since the
commencement of the affair, had relaxed
somewhat within the last week, but it has
bobbed to tne surface again. Last Mon
day Thos. Alien, the only one of the
quartette arrested who were supposed
to have been in tbe school huilding on a
certain evening, was fined $20 and costs
before Justice Hobart. A notice of ap
peal to the circuit court followed. The
verdict before the justice evidently net
tled some of Allen's friends, especially, it
seems, Thos. Maxwell, whom ru
mor declares was the male com
panion of Allen in the school house
scrape. Maxwell, meeting Mr. E. M
Rogers, one of the school directors, the
other evening, proceeded to assault him
on the street. A crowd was quickly at
tracted to the scene, and a couple of
citizens attempted to arrest Maxwell. He
escaped from their grasp, however, and
left town immediately. The unwarranted
assault upon Mr. Rogers provoked gen
eral indignation, and a warrant was
placed in a ronstaMe's hands for Max

A UiaVrenee at Opinion to the Proba
hie Reply of the War lriartiuent at
to the Reek I -land t. tin Factory.
A Washington special to today's Chi
cago Tribune contains the following:
Tbe reply of the war department to the
resolution as to the adaptability of the
Rock Island arsenal for a gun foundry is
receiving the finishing touches and will
probably reach its destination during the
coming week. There will probably be a
wide difierence of opinion between tbe
views of tbe chief of ordinance, and Col
Whittemore, tbe officer in charge of Rock
Island, who, in his report, recently re
reived at the department, enthusiastically
advocate its conversion into an ordnance
factory, and be says It can be done with
out any great expense for buildings, as
the present shops can be used without
material alteration. The main shoos, he
estimates, can be put in condition for
tbe erection of tbe large traveling cranes
and other necessary tools for $25,000.
The chief of ordnance will not arquiesce
in his opinion. None of tbe buildings
have the necessary solid foundations for
the erection of heavy machines, and to
provide them would require some radical
changes in tbe present structures, which
could not be accomplished without a con
siderable outlay, as the ordnance officials
here art anxious to have an additional
appropriation for the completion of the
new foundry at Watervliet. N. Y., and
have about made up their minds to advo
cate the establishment of a foundry on
the Pacific slope as proposed by several
measures now pending in congress. It is
feared that tbe reply of the war depart
ment will not be favorable to the pro
posed conversion of the Rock Island Ar
senal at the present time.
Mr. J S. Wylie telegraphed the Dav
enport Democrat, last night as follows:
We saw today Gen. Benet, chief of ord
nance. Col. Whittemore s plans are
now in bis bands. In company with
Senators Allison and Cullom we bad an
other conference with Secretary of War
Proctor. The eenators urged the matter
of the establishment of the gun factory
at the Rock Island arsenal very forcibly.
we can only rest the case in tba secre.
tary's bands, and agitate tbe cause at our
end of the line.
On reading the Tribune special, Mayor
McConochie wired immediately to the
secretary of war that the statements con
cerning the unsoundness of the founda
tions at Rock Island arsenal were uns
founded. Mr. Fred Hass sent a similar
telegram, as did Messrs. Morris Rosen -
