WHO THEY ARE.
Brief IatrodartloB to the Deanaerailr
The democracy of Rock Island city and
township has been wonderfully favored In
its choice of candidates for the various
offices to he voted for at the approaching
municipal and town election. It has
probably never been before that all ele
ments of party preference were so well
satisfied, and tbis speaks much for party
harmony, which is an essential forerun
ner of party enthusiasm. It may be re a
aonably regarded therefore that the sound
discretion which has displayed its part in
the preliminary stages will afterward
be manifested at the polls, and that
next Tuesday will record a democratic
triumph at every voting place in the city
and township of Rock Island. Inasmuch
as the democracy has had the good for
tune to choose the coming aldermen from
each of the several wards, the Argcs
may, with every sense of propriety, pre
sent an introduction:
Mr. Cbas. Strupp, of the First ward, is
a carpenter by trade, and has become
known to almost everybody in the ward
through hisenergy and industrious habits,
and he may be regarded as a man who
will serve bis fellow citizens there and
throughout the city faithfully and well in
the municipal chamber.
Cbas. Durmann, of the Second ward.
is a stove moulder; works hard at bis
trade, but he finds lime to talk improve
ments after working hours and to give
Tent to his expressions of pride in his
particular part of town. He is com
posed of the right kind of material ex
actly for an alderman, and the vot
ers of the Second .ward will never regret
the day they choose him as their alder
Joseph Oeiger, of the Third ward, is
a cigar manufacturer, and has the largest
factory in Rock Island. He has built up
by thrift and peneverance an enterprise
which be established upon the fruits of
bis individual efforts and industry. He
is a good business man, and will be a
Henry Frick in the Fourth ward is the
proprietor ef the livery stable on Second
avenue opposite Spencer square. He is
a thoroughly upright and go-a-head bus
inesa man and is the right kind of a man
exactly that is wanted in the Rock Island
council In these progressive times.
John Atkinson, of the Sixth ward, has
already served his ward one term in the
council and he made a record that was in
every way creditable to himself and bis
ward. He will show the same consid
erate spirit as a member of the incoming
Paul Thiesen, of the Seventh ward, is
a wagon maker and Is popular with all
who know him and will he a number one
alderman. The great mass of the voters
of the ward are enthusiastic over Mr.

better man than he.

Akron, O., March 27. Jacob IL Spran
kle, a conductor on the Connottin Valley
railway, with a run out of Cleveland, and
Samuel P. Cramer, an Akron machinist,
took out licenses in the probate court yes
terday morning to marry Lucinda Snyder,
the daughter of a Mogadore farmer.
Sprankle was on hand early at the court,
and was anxious to know if his securing a
license would prevent anybody else getting
one. He was told that it would not Half
an hour later Cramer appeared and got a li

mistake when told of the license previously
Sprankle Was Much in Karnest.
Miss Snyder, who is visiting at her sister's
home in this city, admitted that she was en
gaged to both the young men.
"I told Mr. Sprankle last night." she said,
"that I could not marry him. He remained
there till early this morning tryinsr, to
persuade me to accept -him, and finally
showed a levolver, but I knocked
it from liis hand. I promised
to meet him in Akron Wednesday
morning, and received a note in the after
noon saying he would Ijo back from Cleve
land to-day, and would expect me to be
ready to marry him. Mr. Sprankle said he
would surely shoot himself if he heard of
me marrying any one else."
Miss Synder was qui -tly wedded last night

a Young Lady.
New YORK, March 27. Mi.ss Lizzie Van
Note, twenty years of age and quite a belle
in Long Branch society, was rotten-egged
while she was taking a walk Tuesday even
ing, by a number of young men who had
concealed themselves behind fences and
trees. Four arrests were made. The young
men were arraigned before a magistrate, to
whom they denied that they bad thrown
eggs at Miss Van Note, but they admitted
that they were thrown at her pet dog that
was with her. The dog was not hit One
cause allege I for the assault is that it was an
attempt inspired by some families in the
neighborhood to "take down Miss Van Note's
The Scandal Monger at Work.
Another btory is circulated to the effect
that the young men committe-l the assault to
punish Miss Van Note lor receiving atten
tions from a resident of Asbiiry Park who is
a married man, but it is said by the young
woman and her friends that her acquaint
ance with the Asbury Park man never passed
the bounds of strict propriety. The affair is
not likely to end with the decision of the
court in the case of the four young men, as
Miss Van Note is not lacking in friends who
think the indignity to which she has been
subjected should be punUned more severely
than the statutes prescribe The plea of the
offenders is not accepted by any one. The
examination of the voting men was continued.

West Chester, Pa., March Z!. Sister
Leo. who escaped from the Villa Maria con
vent Tuesday, and was subsequently recap
tured, died yesterday of paralysis of the
heart It appears that Sister jeo came to
the convent six months ago from the parish
of the Church of the Uesu, Philadelphia,
and took the white veil. She has since then
bsen one of the most devoted of the order.
A week ago she was stricken with "la
grippe," and a day or two later her brain,
it is said, became affected. It was while
laboring under a hallucination that she
leaped from the window Tuesday, and at
tempted to escape. The physicians say
her death was caused by the exposure.

Helena, Mont, March 27. The most

Owing to Helena's rapid growth it recently
became necessary to ilnd a new burying
ground, ami one was purchased by tut
municipality about five miles from town.
The price of lots was placed at (1U. The
aldermen didn't think it quite right that
they should be treated just like ordinary
mortals, and at lucsuay night's sessiou
adopted the following by a majority vote of
a to 1 :
"Moved, That the mayor und city clerk,
city marshal, city engineer and any alder
man who may so elect shall have the priv
iledge of buying a lot in the city cemetery
It Raised a Great Howl.
Yesterday when the details of the con tern'
plated steal leaked out much Indignation was
aroused, and the grave-robbers, seeing the
rising storm, attempted to laugh the matter
down. Finding that tbis plan did not work
well, it was given out that the whole matter
was a joke. But the pretense was not satis
factory, and a special meeting of the coun
cil was forthwith called to kill the disrepu
table job. For a whole day the city fathers
were branded "grave-robbers," and it is safe
to predict that when they again turn their at
tention to a steal they will not attempt to
grab cemetery lots.

sane at Anchorage, twelve mile from this
city. Last week there was an order from
the friends of a patient who bod been buried
in the osylvm cemetery for the body to be
exhumed and sent to another state for
burial The order was turned o ver to a city
undertaker, who remarked when he received
it: "I don't suppose the body is there now."
Caught In tbe Aet
This aroused the suspicion of Dr. Byrnes,
tbe superintendent, and, although investiga
tion revealed the body wanted, he deter
mined to guard tbe cemetery. I'riday night
a wagon drove np to the gravf yard fence,
and three men were soon hard tt work on a
newly -made grave, when the guards came
down ou them. Two escaped, bit the third,
a negro, was overhauled. lie was terribly
frightened, and confessed that t le errand of

college of the University of Louisville. He
said they bad made frequent an 1 successful
Itonnd to Steal BoUI .
Pr. Gilbert, of the University of Louis
ville, said: "Yes, the party was sent out by
us. We must have bodies, and if the state
won't give them to us we must steal them.
The winter das es were large and used up
so many subjects that there are none for tbe
spring clash's. This canst n the 'ewUbany
tragedy and the arre-t Friday night The
asylum Cemetery has been robbel lor years,
and I doubt if there is a corpse in it I tell
you we must have bodies. You cannot
make doctors without them, and the public
must understand it. If we car't get them
any other way we will arm tiie students
with W inchoter rifles, and send them to

Washington City, March 27. The Sher
man anti-trust bill was the occasion of an
other lively debate in the senate yesterday,
Vest and Ingalls contributing most to the
entertain meat Vest, who has opposed the
bill because it is, as be believes, unconstitu
tional, declared that he would not say an
other word about the constitution. He was
prepared to "join the procession." It re
minded him of the hunting party that made
an agreement that the fint man who com
plainod of a dish set before him in camp
should cook for week. One of them hap
pened to kill an old crow and cooked it for
the mess, and every one praised it as a most
delicious morsel The "Farmers' Alliance"
was cooking now, and no dish could be
placed on the senatorial table that would
not he taken w ith a gusto that would de
light a l'arisian gourmand. He character
ized the bill as a "remarkable act of legisla
tive legerdemain. " It said to tbe persons
engaged in dealing in futures and options
that they were a lot of criminal thieves and
robln-rs, but thut if they would pay t,000
into the treasury they might go on rob
bing. InfculN' Characteristic Defense.
Ingalls, iu defending his amendment (im
posing a tax on option dealing), said he
could not conceive of anything more humor
ous or more grotesque than to see the sen
ators from Louisiana, Mississippi and Mis
souri, and th-ir associates, rise in their seats
on every occasion and plead the constitu
tion with a simulation of terror, as if tbe
minutest alerration of that sacred instru
ment would like the death of Kosciusko
"make freedom shriek." In seemed to him
that it would be a little more becoming for
thosa senators to rememls?r that their view
of the constitution had not been maintained
by the people of the United States. Ingalls
commended to those construers of tha con
stitution the contemplation of the results of
their criticisms during the last thirty years,
and suggested to them whether it was not
barely possible for th-m to be mistaken in
invoking the constitution against the effort
to remove the burden of the monstrous and
crying evil against which the bill and
amendment were aimed.
The Wyoming Case the House.
There was also a warm debate in the
house on the bill for tbe admission of Wyom
ing as a state. Strong pleas in favor of such
action were made by Carey of Wyoming,
and others, but the Democrats made a vigor
ous oppoitinn. Barnes was opposed to the
woman suffrage provision in Wyoming's
constitution and so was Cites.
Meagre Population Objected To.
Dockery said he was in favor of admitting
states as fast as they were ready for state
hood, but in the rase of Wyoming, the ter
ritory had been organized for fourteen years
and the total vote cast in 1XS was but 18,010
4,000 of the vote being cast by women
Thus the whole vote was less than that cost
in his (Dockery's) district The bill was par
tisan, its purpose being to increase the Re
publican majority in tbe senate by two
votes and add two votes to tbe Republican
column in lS'.ri

Mansur of Missouri addressed himself, he

that the house was liringing a state into tbe
Union by the ( a-.-arian operation rather
than with the care and comfort which sur
rounded the accouchment of an honorable
memtier of an honorable family.

Washington City, March i. 7. Sherman

the union because of a strike on the schooner.
Deputy Sheriff Anderson, Pilot David Wnldt,
and Deputy Constable Georgo Morris were
detailed to work up the case. They learned
that the two sailors were prisoners on the
south coast of Cataina island at a place
called Little Harbor.
Rescue of the Prisoners.
Reinforced by Deputy Sheriff William
Haiuniell and A. W. Marsh, they proceeded
secretly to San Pedro so as not togive alarm
to tbe union. Deputies Hammell and Marsh
were left in Han Pedro to watch the sup
posed kidnapers, while Anderson, WaMt
and Morris boarded the pilot boat Naiad
In the night, and bailed for Cataliuu island.
When they arrived at Little Harbor the dep
uties surprise! the two sailors in a tent
guarded by two men named EntvoUlson and
Johnson, members of the Coast Seamen's
anion. The rescued sailors were taken on
board the Naiad, and brought to this city.
Morjr of Their Capture.
The story of their capture as told by
Kemp and Busch is highly sensational.
Busch said: "When the kidnapers boarded
the Nettie Sondberg she lay alongside of the
wharf, and the first thing that we knew of
Impending danger was when I was grabbed,
jagged and bound, and Kemp was hauled
out of hi berth Lefore be could use bis re
volver. We were cursed at and threatened,
and no time was given us to dress, but they
hurried us on board a 'double ender.' Pa
trolman Keil was the leader of the party.
Once on board the union boat, sail wag
made and we coasted as tar as Portuguese
Bend, where a consultation was held, after
which we were set ashore and can ied later
to Little Harbor."
Advised Not to Prosecute.
Kemp says thot during the trip they In
come convinced that they were going to be
murdered, and they determined to sell their
lives as dearly as possible. Kemp had a
razor and Busch a knife, and each picked
out his man and made up their minds to
"mark them with a trade mark" in case they
were attacked. Tbe rescued sailors have
been approached by members of tbe union
and advised not to prosecute, as it would do
them no good, but they intend to see the
case through, and 1 ave sworn out com
plaints against Alfred Anderson and "Pa
trolman" Keil, charging them with assault
with a deadly weapon and abduction. The
leaders have been held in (5,0oo bail bv
