BAD FOR THE BUILDING.

Special corresnondence of the A at us.
Washisgtos, D. C, Apni 26. I ar
rived here on Wednesday evening and at
once had a long conversation with the
Hon. Wro. II. Gest whereby I discovered
that oar public building bill in the house
it in a critical condition. The bill has
been reported so late that i, is the
twelfth on the calendar, and as this com
mittee on public buildings and grounds
will likely not have another day
this session, therefore our bill in the house
i the same as lost. Mr. Gest advised me
lo look up the senate bill introduced by
Mr. Farwell for the appropriation of
f IC'0,000 for a public building at R,ck
Island, whereupon I saw Senator Farwell
and found that nothing had been done
with the bill that he had introduced for
u. I thereupon had him endorse the
bill afking it to be reported. 1
then called upon Senator John C.
Spooner, member of the senate com
mittee of . public buildings and
grounds, who assured me that he would
have the bill favorably reported next
week; and sometime soon, or at least
in ten days would call for a suspension
of the rules and that he would then have
our postoftice bill passed through the sen
ate, and it would tbeii be sent over to the
house for concurrence. Thereby we will
have no trouble in having this bill become
Oar viaduct bill. I think, is now in a
good shape. I have looked up ali recom
mendations from the secretary of war, from
ttie cuter or ordnance, from the war de
partment and from the commanding effi
ccrs and others, and I have them all filed
in the central appropriation committee
rooms of both bousj and senate which
are all very favorable, and I think that
ttiey are or such assistance that we will
have no trouble in either house or senate
committee in eettino a favorable report
ana have it attached to the s-undrv civil
appropriation bill, and that will assure us
that it will be passed. 1
I herewith inclose you a copy of the
bill, which was introduced bv Senator Far
well on March 27. being numbered 3 .282:
lie it enacted by the senate and house
of representatives of the United States of
America in congress assembled, That the
secretary of the treasury be. and he is

hen Senator Farwells bill was first
introduced in the senate the Argus op
posed endorsement of it then, not because
it did not appreciate the efforts of Sena
tor Farwell to the fullest extent, but be
.aue or lear mat tbe bouse committee
having reported upon a bill for f 75,000,
Ue senate bill for flOO.ooo might create
the impression that Rock Island wss not
satisfied with what had been agreed
upon as the proper appropriation for it
and the chances of getting an
appropriation at all might thereby be
entirely jeopardized. But inasmuch as
the bill has not been propr r'y guarded in
the house, as according to Mr. Uass'
statement all hope of it is lo3t this ses
sion, there is but ons th'ng to do
pin our hope to what may be accom
plished in the senate.

Fair Trial in Iavrnpnrt.
Dr. J. A. Reid, the Davenport physi
cian indicted for nnsnslaughter as the re
Bult of an abortion, has filed in the cir
cuit court of Scott county a numerously
signed petition, alleging that he "cannot
receive a fair and impartial trial in Scott
county, owing to prejudice and excite
ment against him." He alleges also ttfat
there are four daily newspapers published
in the city of Davenport and "that said
dailies and four or more weekly newspa
pers in said city are circulated throughout
said county; that all of said newspapers
have contained extensive reports of the
various proceedings in regard to the case:
that they published in full with some un-
iavorabie, prejudicial and untruthful
comment of their own against him, the
various proceedings and statements of
witnesses heard before the coroner, and
the proceedings before the justice of the
peace and the proceedings before the
grand jury." He further states that stich
published accounts "contain many state
menu which would be inadmissible on
trUl of the cause and which ore highly
inflammatory in their nature, and have
the undoubted tendency to make a prej
udice against said defendant."

SIDE LIGHTS ON A TRAGEDY.
Glimpses at tha Daaaestto Life of lA
At Mimico, a town near Toronto, Canada, a
tragedy occurred recently which has landed
one man in his grave and another In a feloni
cell. The killing was the culmination of a
drunken quarrel, began on a train and ended
after arrival at the railway station. - In de
tail the particulars seem to be these: John
Byron, who was drank, asked John Wadehia
opinion of a ballad some one was singing.
Wade replied curtly and Byron struck him.
Wade threw Byron back in a seat of the car
end threatened to "do" him later on.
At the station Byron offered an apology,
wmcn was rerused,
and in the subse
quent fight stabbed
Wade in the neck,
causing his death.
The victim of the
affray was a young
man and unmar
ried. His slayer is
of middle ae, and
has a large family
at St. Catherine's.
To him and those
dependent on liima
certain pathetic in
terest attaches, despite the
with which he is charged.
John Byron is a veteran of the late war,
having participated in eighty-four engage
ments, from skirmishes to battles, as a sol
dier of the northern army. He was wounded
on the bead w ith a sword, and those who
know say that liquor drives him frantic since
receiving the injury, but that when sober his
temper is of the most placid sort. He is a
poor man, and his domestic life seems to have
been that of a humble hero.
Although the father of ten children, de
pendent upon his earnings for support, be
added to this large burden willingly and
rTC?W cheerfully. Re-
rsii marked his wife:
"When my brother
died John said: 'I
wout see his child
ren want. I guess
we can feed two
more little mouths.'
So we adopted
them. A little
while after his
w i d ower brother
died, and he said,
'Go and get poor
JOHN byron. la-other's children.
I won't xee tbetn thrown on the world so
young to sAift for themselves.' That was
two morv, we worked to keep our hungry
little IWk of f.iurtwn. John never whipped
the children. When I'd whip Vm because
they deserve.! it lied look wistful at me.
When sotier he was as gentle as a little child."
At the time of the killing Byron was fore

early morning until late at niht, forcing the
tronfn, to retire.
Tiie next nioruing tlie troo again marched
on the stronghold, but tbe hostiles kept up
such an inoesitit firing that the troops, who
were nearly exhausted from thirst and hun
ger, were compelled to retreat. The next day
the Mexican troojis received reinforcements
and charged the stronghold, bat found it
abandoned. The Indians had left a large
amount of rlothiug, provisions and saddles
behind them. They moved north, followed
to the line by the Mexican troops. They had
twenty-one horses and plenty of arms and
Centered Her Affections on Cat.
After the death of her twin children who
lived but an hour, Mrs. Jar.e Duncan, of New
Yort c-ity, developed a mania for cats. Her
husband, a jouriiojuian carpenter, bore meek
ly and jtuiently with her weakness for eight
een years, lhen he died, but beyond noti
fy lug a neighbor, his wife paid no attention
to the event. Friends looked after the fu
nerU arrangements, and subsequently bad the
dement.nl woman taken to an asylum. When
the apartments were cleaned up the other
day for occupancy by anew tenant, twenty
seven fuli grown cats and a large number of
kittens were evicted. They seemed to know
that their friend had gone, for none of tbem
has attempted to return since receiving no
tice to quit.
