Three years Bgo the Argus published
a series of articles speaking of Rock Isl
and's advantages both natural and ac
quired, and the bright prospects that were
before the city. That the record of the
city si ice then has amply borne out every
assertion made by the A kg us as to the
city then and the indications of what was
in store, for it is well shown in the
splend d system of street improvements
which are so well under way that they
will nt t be checked until the entire city is
paved, and the building that was done
last season and is planned for the present
The establishment by the Rock ford
Construction company of a plant in Rock
Island is not only a gratifying evidence
of the prosperity of Rock Island and the
advantages it offers, but of the confidence
felt by outside capitalists in Rock Isl
and's immediite future. For it is a prac
tically settled fact now that the contem
plated factory will be located at Sears,
where representatives of the Rockford
company haye been prospecting for some
time. In a word the survey has been
made and the terms agreed upon by
which the Rnckford company is to take
posses? ion and erect its buildings at once,
prepantory to the reception of the ma
chinery as soon as it arrives from Ohio,
where it wa9 recently purchased.
The company having thus evinced its de
termination to locate here, the city cbun-
cil.whi e it will no doubt order the paving
extensions on Moline avenue at its next
meeting, will likely withhold specifying
the tiu e when the work is to be done or
advert sing for proposals until the new
company, which is to be a Rock Island
enterprise and industry, is in a position
to hid r n the work.
The new system of park improvements
is fair y under way, and Commissioner
Jackfon, of Spencer square, has a force
of men at work excavating for the cross
walks v.hicli will probably be of tils. The
band stand is being moved to one of the
angles, while a rustic or an iron fountain
will on anient the center. The square is
to be nicely sodded and flower beds, etc.,
A rase which has the semblance of big
amy is pending, which implicates a cou
ple in tuis city and which is likely to be
prosecuted at most any time.

It is not known wh was the aggressor,
but a dispute g'ew out of the discussion
of the antagonism of the society, the
members of which are known as antag

The nu n attacked each other viciously
and desperately, until finally separated in
the saloon into which they bad carried
their s ruggle, and where James Cor
coran became implicated in his efforts to
protect his friend McDarrah. Constable
Eckharl at last separated the men, and
later Officer Kramer put Oeisinger and
McDarrah under arrest. Oeisinger had
pretty t gly bruises about the eyes, while
McDarrah had a severe scalp wound.
This afternoon Oeisinger swore out a
complaint for the arrest of McDarrah and
Corcoran charging them with assault, but
a contit unnce was taken until Monday.
ltl(III Agalnnt the Field.
Repn sentative Crawford, of Edging
ton, was again in the city yesterday. The
attempt by the Union to bring Dr. VV.
T. Bough ton out for the legislature is no
doubt accountable for Crawford'B mission
to Rock Island, it being a pretty well con
ceded fact of which no one is more aware
than Bro. Bill himself, that the announce
ment of Boughton's candidacy is the part
of a republican scheme to defeat him.
In a word, it is the field against Craw
ford and all elements of the party in the
county are concentrated in an effort to
accorop ish the purpose which must
be Craw ford's political scalp and nothing
short i f that will Jo. Boughton's
candidacy must be a part of such a plan,
as he is not popular with his own party.
He was appointed postmaster at Edging
ton against thr protests of nearly
every republican in the township,
and is known to be a man who
always has his lightning rod out
for anything in sight. As another
part of this scheme to down Bro. Bill, Dr.
Cozad, of Reynolds, is brought out for
senator, and Crandall, of the same neigh
borhood, is ticketed for treasurer. With

The last number of the National Trib
une the soldiers' paper contains a brief
history with cuts, showing the different
stages of the physical condition of John
W. January.a private, in the 14th Illinois
cavalry. He enlisted when a mere lad,
being a little over sixteen years old, and
joined his regiment as a recruit in Feb
1864. From this time until August 3,
1864, history chronicles some sixteen bat
ties in which the 14th was engaged -all
of them in the Atlantic campaign
On this last date Mr. January was
captured on the great Stoneman raid,
which proved so disastrous to many of
the regiment. He was a prisoner of war

David's Island, N. Y., a mere skeleton,
weighing but forty six pounds, and after
seven month's treatment in the hospital,
was restored to bodily heahh. All
things considered, his case is perhaps the
most notable example of nerve and bod
idly suffering in the annals of the war.
