THE HOCK ISLAND AltGUS, FRIDAY, APRIL 11 1890.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Far oat, April 11, 1800.
Jakes H. Manning, son of the late
Daniel Mancingwaa elected mayor of
Albany. N. Y., at tbe recent election.
The democrats made a gain of nearly
5.000 votes over the result of two years
ago. The new mayor is the editor of the
n. R. Kjteedler, for tbe past two
years associate editor of the Cedar Rap
ids Gazette, and Will P. Muse for five
years city editor of that paper, have re
signed their positions. The former be
comes editor and tbe latter city editor of
tbe Ottumwa Courier, lately purchased
by A. W. Lee, formerly business mana
ger of the Muscatine Journal. Tbe Dav
enport Democrat says this triple combin
ation of bright newspaper men is one of
tbe strongest ever formed. It means
tbe building up of an evening paper at
Ottumwa that will be of great benefit to
that growing place. If tbe Democrat
wt-ro asked to pick from all Iowa jour
nalism three better men in'their special
lines of work than Lee, Eneedk-r and
Muse, it would give up the task as a
hopeless undertaking. The young men
are to lie congratulated, and the city of
Ottumwa. which is to have the advan
tige of their experience, industry and
skill, is fortunate indeed.

them-. But as tbe census data will be ao

for the President Capital News Notes.
Washington City, April 1L A meeting
of the committee appointed by the Repub
lican caucus to consider the silver question
was held last night at the home of Senator
Sherman. Soma progress was made, but
the bill to be presented to the caucus was
not definitely determined on. One point baa
been made clear during the deliberations
thna far that something very like unlim
ited coinage is to meet with the approval of
the senate at this session of congress. . The
work of the caucus committee now is di
rected to preparing a compromise measure
on which the Republican members of the
senate can unite, but the information has
some to the Republican senators with soma
directness, that the Democratic senators
will vote almost without exception for free
coinage, and as several Republican senators
must vote with thorn on thii point, free
coinage (so far as the senate, can determine
tbe question) seems almost assured.
The Problem Requiring Solution.
This information comes from the most
reliuble sources, an 1 it is the information
on which the Republican caucus committee
is acting. Someo the Republican senators
are bitterly opposed to unlimited coinage,
and how to reconcile them and the silver
advocates so as to prevent a split in the Re
publican ranks is the problem with which
the caucus committee is wrestling. Many
3f the western silver men have expressed a
willingness to vote for a compromise meas
ure if they can be placed in the ri,;ht atti
tude before their people.
I'nllmited Cnisiaee Favered.
The Republican members of the house
held a caucus Inst nisjht to consider party
policy. The silver question was taK.-n up
immediately and discussed at great length.
During the discussion a remarkable feeling
in favor of unlimited coinage d jvelopedj
and if present indicnt ions are of any value
the hoise and senate will join before long in
passing a bi 1 providing for free coinage.
Conger of Ohio was the first speaker at the
caucus. He explained the provisions of his
silver bill. He was followed by Walker of
Massachusetts, Cannon of Illinois, McKin
ley of Ohio, and Carter of Montana. Car
ter made a strong plea for free coinage.
Will Consult Over tbe Matter.
The house and senate silver bills were dis
cussed at length. At first the general ten-It-ncy
seemed to he in favor of the house bilk
The views expressed were so diverse, how
ever, that it was agreed that a committee oi

that would le in effect a compromise, and to
report to a caucus to bo held in the house on

fect was adopted, and the caucus at 11:05
adjourned. Dmgley of Maine preside I.

the one which is now rent into factions ovit
the question whether Bishops Bowman and

the door, and tha opponents of the bishois
being a majority of the conference, be wns

In the meantime tha brethren inside were

Cnseemly Proceedings and Secession.
When the temporary chairman attempted
to read the Scriptures such a commotion
was raised that he could not be heard. The
Oermnn and English language were botb
used to express the very uncomplimentary
views the members hold of each other. The
bishop's enemies were largely in the major
ity, and fiually started a hymn which was
made discordant by the cries of the opposi
tion. Tbe only time peace reigned was
when a prayer was started. They heard
this through, and then the bishop's friends,
to the number of twenty-six, withdrew and
proceeded to another church, headed by the
bishop, who was waiting outside, and or
ganized a conference of their own. A con

John Phillips Progress Up the
READY FOK THE SUPREME EFFOET.
Every Ladder in Place Except th On
Which Is to Lift Him to tha Top
An Account of His Manner of Opera
tion He Views the Country from The
'Great Collar Ingenious Method of Fix
ing Holts In Brick Work.
NEW York. April 11. Nervy John Phil
lips, th9 chimney climber, who is ascending
the great smoke stack of the Clark Thread
works at Newark, N. J., is getting along
rapidly, considering tha perilous character
of his work. Wednesday he was at work
by S a. tn., and at that time twenty -two
ladders were in place, and the top of the up
per one seemed to be within five or six feet
of the ring, or collar, under the flaring top.
Above this ladder a stout spika was driven
into the masonry, and frim it depended a
tackle block and rope.
How He Climbs the Ladders.
Mr. Phi. lips wears a safety belt around
his waist. Ia the front of this belt is a stout
hook, which hs attaches to a rung of a lad
der while at work, thus giving support to
the body and permitting him to use both
hands freely. V.h-n ready o go up the lad
ders, Phillip- fa.-n-'d the end of the pulley
rope to the ho. k in his belt and one of his
two helpers took hold of the other end of the
rope and gathered it in, hand over hand, as
the climber astvuded, putting on strain
enough to make the climl-iu easy, but not
enough to Hit Phillips' whole weight. When
Phillips res:e 1 the heljvr stopped pulling,
and he rested several times bjiore reaching
the dizzy height at which hd was to begin
his day's work.
Mantling on the Collar.
IJt examine 1 the lathings of the last lad
der, and tlu-u signalled tor another, which
was quickly stmt up to him. It was a short
one, but like the others he secured it with
six spikes, and lashed nearly half its length
to the twenty-second ladder. It projected
aliove the collar a few feet, an l, securing it
firmly, Phillips mounted it, and, passing be
hind it, stood for a few minutes on the broad
ring of brickwork which encircles the chim
ney, nnd w hich is chippxl off in two places
by the lightning. Now came the beginning
of the climber's most difficult work.
An Ingenious fastening.
Hollow drills ma le of case-hardened pipe
with herratt'.l ends, were sent up to him.
and he began drilling one-inch holes in the
masonry. In these holes he drove pieces of
steampipe. On the inner end of each of
these pijie bolts was a tapering plug, and on
the outer end a nut through which a rod
passed to the taperiug plug. This rod ter
minated in a ring to which tha ladders were
lushed. After tbe pipe bolts were put in
place in the brickwork a few turns of tbe
nut expanded the inni-r end of the pipe and
made it secure iu the masonry. Phillips put
one ot these wilts iu the wall of the engine
room the other day and twelve men on a
rope could not pull it out.
Kr.iily for the Last Ladder.
It was a slow job affixing the lower pair
of tht-83 bolts, and Phillips did not get his
twenty-fourth ladder up until 12:30 o'clock,
at which tune a storm blew up, and he de
scend, d until it was over, wheu he reascend
ed an l resumed his work. The ladder which
he was attaching did not lean outward
much, for he had concludisl not to try the
ascent of the bell with a single ladder. It
ran nearly half way up tho flaring brick
work and stood slanting outward, but near
ly perpendicular. At 2:30 o'clock ha pro-
nounced it secure, and sent for the twenty-
live-foot ladder, which was to be the last
woodon one used. At 5 o'clock he had this
iu place, mid was suspendod from it by his
knees and waist be.t while be was puttin,
in the middie holts. At 6 o'clock he was
still clinging like a caterpillar to a twig, and
putting on ihe lashings which secured the
ladder to tha last pair of spik-s.
The Job Nearly Completed.
I be iron ladder with w hich he is to sur
mount the iron cup stood against the wall of
the engine-room Its sides are made of iron
one and a half inches wid, and the rungs
are made of half-inch gas-pipe. It is six feet
and eight inches long. It weighs forty
pounds, and would lie flat against the cap
but for twostriof wood which Phillips
will lash to tha under side. Putting on this
ladder will lie the work of a few minutes.
and then Phillips task will be almost com
pleted. After getting his supper, Phillip
made an attempt to put up the iron ladder.
but he was compelled to desist on account of
tbe high wind and the approaching darkness.

DIFFICULTY OF A DOMINIE.
An English Clergyman In a Very Tight
London, April 11. Everybody was talk
ing last night about the perplexing situation
of Rev. Henry White, chaplain of the house
of commons, chaplain to the queen, and pas
tor of tho f unous Savoy chapel royal. Mr.
White has ptticjatod at many notable Amer
ican weddings h.-re. A washerwoman named
Eliza Hubert was arrested a few days ago
while trying to pawn a handsome gold watch
which had an inscription on the case show
ing that it was given to Mr. White twenty
six years ago by his congregation at Savoy
chapeL The woman, who was badly fright
ened, said the man who owned the watch
had met h.T ou the street and gone with her
to a tavern, and after staying there an hour
had hurried awny to catch a train, leaving
the watch on a table.
Mr. White's Explanation.
The case came up for trial yesterday. Mr.
White explained lie loss of his watch by
saying that it was stolen from him while ha
was asleep in an underground railway train.
He denied all knowledge of the
woman, though she reproachfully
contradicted him. She swore that
her story was true and posi
tively identified th j dominie, who is a man
of marked personal characteristics, whom
few people could forget, once svn. Tbe
magistrate dismissed the case, saying that
while the girl's story as to how she got the
watch might lie true, she was probably mis
taken in her idcntinVation of White. The
woman was rel.-ased.
