check i( st thing that the Arocs has done
since the opening of the spring cam
paign--is to claim a democratic majority
in the city council on the theory that AN
dermati Evans is a democratic." Then it
goes cn to explain why Mr. Evans
should be a republican because he received
the nomination of a republican caucus
the ve y officers of which attempted to
rule oat the vote that gave Mr. Evans
the nomination, and then left the house
to woik against Mr. Evans, and further
more cot up a star chamber caucus did
these very officers to put upon the track
in opposition to Mr. Evans, the man he
hadde feated in the caucus. And more than
this, the influential republicans of the

electi n, and on being refused, they per

him tithe Argus office with a letter of

cry being anything to beat Evans. The
Aug i g declined to have anything
to do with the opposition to Mr.
Evans, but it can produce some
pretty interesting information for
the Union's benefit if it would like to
have it. In this same connection would
it not be wise for the Union before it is

by Aid. Evans himself in the Union of

ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, APKIL
FOUR PRISONERS FREE.
B 1 Delivery ft Prisoner From the
Mett OoMty Jail MwH Their
Fonr prisoners escaped from the Scott
county jail at Davenport about 8:30 last
night. The men secured their freedom
through sawing a hole through an iron
window large enough for a man to crawl
through. Among the quartette and the
one who is probably chiefly instrumental in
getting the men out is Charley Gay, who
of late has been the object of much solic
itous and misplaced sympathy from vari
ous gentlemen and ladies of Davenport
He was in jail for highway robbery, had
had one trial in which the jury disagreed,
another in which he was convicted, and
then owing to petitions and solicitations
from sympathizers about town, be was
granted a new trial. The case would
have come up before the grand jury at the
present term. He waa the only one of the
quartette who had friends in the city, and
it may have been through these friends
that the necessary tools were procured
to effect the escape. The window the
lower part of which is of perforated iron
had been sawed almost entirely out, the
hole being large enough for a man to
crawl through with ease. The window
had probably been worked on for several
days. Another of the ex-prisoners was
Bradford, who shot a telegraph operator
in Davenport. He is a young man in
years but old iu crime, being only 21
years of age, and having served two
terms in the penitentiary and two in the
reform school. All of these were light
sentences, made so upon account of his
youth. The other two were up for sixty
days on account of petty crimes.
An adjourned meeting of the A. P. A.
society was held last evening, and as the
members came down from Odd Fellows'
hall in Skinner's block, at the corner of
Second avenue and Eighteenth street,
Patsy Brady and Jack McHugh, who
with others, were standing around the
door, addressed disrespectful and insult
ing remarks to several as they passed out
and were particularly abusive of C. O.
Linn, a former C, B. & Q employ, and
a lively dissension was started, in which
several became involved, when Officer
Schaab interfered, and upon the com
plaints of Geo. Stocker, as well as Linn,
Brady and McHugh were arrested. To
ward morning f 100 bonds were furnished
for the appearance of both this morning.
when complaints of breach of the peace
were made and the men rearrested and
locked up in the county ail.
Last night Brady swore out a warrant
charging Linn with breach of the peace.
and when Linn appeared this morning he
asked for a change of venue from Mag
istrate Wivill to Justice Hawes, ex-Magistrate
Robert Bennett acting as his spe
cial counsellor, but when the time came
for trial Brady and McHugh could not
be found, accordingly the case against
Linn was dismissed and a search insti
tuted for Brady and McHugh, who were
finally found, and by order of Marshal
Miller were locked up in the county jail.

"I shall witness the tearing down of the
old building with considerable regret,
said Maj. H. C. Connelly the other day,
in referring to Mitchell & Lynde's block,
which is soon to be torn down to make
way for a handsome structure. "Not
that I do not welcome the improvement.
and am glad to see it," the major con

of 1855, when the building was not quite
completed. I was then connected with
the original Rock Idander, and after
abandoning newspaper business I opened
my law office and here I have spent most
of my business hours since.
"When the building was erected it was
regarded as one of the most elegant and
largest in western Illinois. And it was
not only a handsome building, but an ex
pensive one in those days, when it was
known as Bailey & Boyles' block. There
was no trouble whatever experienced in
getting tenants and the structure was
hardly under roof until it was filled up.
As I have said, I cane in before the finish
ing touches were put on. Of course,
the postoffice annex had not been
been put on then, but in the building as
far it went back to the present entrance
to the postofhVe corridor, there were no
vacant rovms. Cook, Sargeant & Par
ker then occupied the present Mitchell &
Lynde's bank; while Harper & S:eel's
hardware store bad the othercorner. The
little room back of this latter store on the
Seventeenth street side, was occupied by
Judge Bailey as an office. Up stairs, if
my memory is true, were the offices of
McKnown & Allison, Judge Wilkinson
and Judge Pleasants soon after Dr.
Truesdale, Dr. Koox. J. B. Hawley. A.
F. Swander, police magistrate, and the
city council rooms, while on the third
floor were newspaper offices.

many changes in the building, old signs
have disappeared, and so have many of
the original tenants, though several of
them still live in the city, but I believe I
am the only one who is still in the build
