- AT HYMEN'S ALTAR.
Happy Xuptiatft Laat Kvenlnz t Mr.
V. I SlYKibben and MiM Minnie
totmpMon
The marriage of Mr. Victor L. McKib-.
ben, of Portland, Ore., and Miss Minnie
Simpson, of this city, was celebrated at
7 o'clock last evening at of the
home of tie bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. P. Simpson. 1936 Third ave
nue, Rev. F:. F. Sweet, rector of Trinity
church, officiating. About forty guests
were present, including Mr. and Mrs.
William S mpson. of St. Louis, and
Messrs. Join, George and William Cor
tis.and Mis Nellie McKibben. of Chica
go. The room in which the beautiful
ceremony M?as solemnized was prettily
decorated with palms, roses and ivy.
After the service and the extending of
congratulations, an elegant and sumptu
ous repast was served, and the happy
young cotijie were recipients of numer
ous handsrme, useful and appropriate
gifts.
The grof m is a nephew of Mr. J. F.
McKibben, local agent for the American
Express company, and formerly resided
here. He is now connected in a respon
sible capacity with the office of the U. P.
express company at Portland. Ilis bride
is one of Rock Island's fairest and fav
orite young ladies, and his nj and pride
at this lime is fully justified.
Mr. anri Mrs. McKibben left this
morning on a short trip which is to in
clude Shelbyville, St. Louis and Chicago,
and on their return they will visit here for
about a wei;k, and then start for their
new home in the far west.
Moving Kedaetlon.
' 'Impossible!' Well, I should remark
it would be impossible to move this
stock in sevi-ral days, or several weeks, you
might have said," remarked Mr. Louis
May, in reply to the suggestion that it
would be inr possible for him to move bis
immense stick of groceries, etc.. to his
temporary quarters across the street.
The remark ?rew out of a conversation
between Mr. May, and a customer relat-
ng to the improvements Mr. Peter Fries
is soon to make in the store at present
occupied by Mr. May, as detailed in the
Argtjs several weeks ago. Naturally
the subject of moving, which everybody
abominates, was brought up, and then
the secondj party to the conversation
made the remark. "It will be impossible
to move all you have here inside of a
few days." Thus came Mr. May's ex
clamation quoted atthe beginning of this
article, and continuing he said:
"Yes, my dear sir, it will be entirel y
impossible to move such a stock even
across the itreet to 1619, which I have
secured temporarily."
Then what do you propose to do-
leave it hert T"
"Why, bliss your aoul, no. I am go
ing to do the most natural thing in the
world reduce it and in order to accom
plish that, reduce prices. In a word. I
am going to slaughter prices in order to
accommodate my customers and conven
ience mysel;', which I can do very nicely
now, do you see;"
In view of these facts May's grocery
will be a pUce of much interest, as well
as profit for the next few days.

AS A MILITARY WORK.
Hon. JT. H. Murphy's trns Poiatam
Favor af the Hennepin Canal-
wen. Bead's Opinion.
Hon. J. H. Murphy has written an
other circular pertaining to the Hennepin
canal, dwelling particularly on the advan
tages of the project as a military measure,
and he says furthermore:
I wish to call attention to a fact that
must have weight that the terminus of
this canal is at the very door of the Rock
island armory and arsenal located in the
Mississippi river. The government haii
expended for said armory and arsenal
during the last twenty-five years the sum
of $8,250,000. In this arsenal is stored the
necessary defense in time of trouble to
protect and defend our Jake coasts. But
unfortunately we have not done as Great
Britain has, for she has opened up a
water communication with the lakes, and
therefore in time of trouble is ready for
the emergency. We are defenseless and
furnish no protection for our cities on the
lakes, and very little anywhere. And is
it not a lamentable fact that our millions
of surplus bave been poured out of the
United States treasury like water in a
time of flood for political reasons and
purposes, while our coast and inland de
fense and the commerce of our country
has been criminally neglected? The res
mark made on this question by Senator
Cullura, of Illinois, in the Forty-ninth
congress, cannot be disputed. He said:
"Mr. President, I despise the policy
which now controls this government now,
and has controlled it in the past, and
which has resulted in our almost helpless
condition in so fur as preparation for de
fense is concerned. We here in congress
do not agree upon the exact thing to do,
and therefore do nothing, We drift
along with no coast defense, no fUg up
on the seas, no preparation to meet the
emergeccles of war on land, lake or pea."
And now the question is, will we con
tinue in the future as we have in the past,
or will we meet the emergency with reso
lute will and determined action, and not
close our eyes to the important of this
improvement. It being my desire to get
the best of information and from the
highest sources, I took the liberty of ask
ing my friend, S. V. Benet.brigadier gen
eral and chief of ordnance for the iast
sixteen years, to furnish me his opinion
as to the importance of this canal tor de
fensive purposes. He very kindly gave
me the following letter which speaks for
itself:
Ordnance Office.
Wak DEr artment, $
Washington. D. C . March 23, '90.
Dear Sir: There can be no doubt
that the all-water communication con
necting the upper Mississippi river with
Lake Michigan at or near Chicago, is as
necessary for defensive purposes on the
lake as it will be for commercial pun
poses, aud as valuable to the country at
large as that artery of commerce, the
Erie canal. The Hennepin is the all-important
link needed in the long chain of
inland navigation, which will virtually
make the country east of the Mississippi
river an island, with the gulf, ocean,
lakes and rivers as its boundaries. An
easy and sate debauch into the upper
lakes through the Hennepin canal will,
with the Erie canal, solve the problem of
supplying that frontier with all war and
navy material of large weight and bulk to
give us control of the lakes. Indeed the
obstruction or destruction of the Erie
canal the first step in case of hostilities
would render the Hennepin an abso
lute necessity, free from disturbance or
attack, lours very truly,
S. V. Beset.
Brig. Gen., Chief of Ordnance.
AN AWFUL FATK
A ttork Inland Ray JlorUa MliiM-kinz
Iteath at Colons this Moraine.
Edward SUallin, a boy of fourteen
years, living on Est Seventh avenue.was
killed on the railroad track at Colon a
about 9 o'clock this morning. In com.'
pany with Raymond Hill, a boy of bis
own age, he attempted to ride on a
freight train to Geneseo. They boarded
the train leaving Rock Island at 7:15, and
stowed themseives away in the feed box
attached to one of the Burton stock cars,
On nearing Colona they concluded to get
out. Young Shallin, in attempting to
extricate himself lost his hold and fell
while train was speeding along at the
rate of thirty miles an hour. He did not
fall directly on the rail, but he struck
upon his bead in such a manner as to
crush his skull, break a ieg and dislocate
an arm. The speed of the train was
slackened, and the trainmen hurried back
and picked the unfortunate boy up. He
was carried into the depot at Colona
where he died in half an hour.
The father, O. P. Shallin. left for Co
lona at noon to convey the body back to
this city.
ToWbom It May Concern.
At my instig ation, an investigation
was had by a committee of the city cou j-
cil into the a: counts of City Weighmaster
John Evans, the result of which com'
pletely vindicated and exonerated him
from all fault or blame in the matter.
I wish to say that I was wrong in mak
ing the charges against Mr. Evans which
led to this investigation, and exceedingly
regret my action in the matter and make
this public retraction lor the purpose of
counteracting, as fully as I can. any harm
I may have done to the good name and
reputation of Mr. Evans, both as a man
and a city official. R. C. Benson.

Must be carefully considered by the
great majority of people in buying even
necessities of life. Hood's Sarsaparilla
commends itself with special force to the
great middle classes, because it combines
positive economy with great medicinal
power. It is the only medicine of which
can truly be said "100 doses one dollar,"
and a bottle taken according to directions
will average to last a montn.

The crews of several Mississippi boats

almost unprecedented low stage of wa

good channel it Is predicted that the
present season will be the most profitable
one to steamboat men that they have en
joyed for many years. Rafting promises
to be particularly remunerative on ac
count of the immense cut of logs on the
tributaries of the upper Mississippi that
is to be moved. The estimate is 2,150,
000.000 feet.
