THE ROCK ISLAND A11GUS, THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1890.
ROBBED ON THE HIGHWAY.
Jim Hubara Hel np Metweea moline
and Briar Bluff tnd Relieved af His
The Moline Republican tells of a bold
attempt at highway robbery near Briar
Bluff the first of the week. James Hil
burn, a teamster for McEniry Bros., went
oat to Briar Bluff for the purpose of look
. ing at some horses" with a view to making
" . some purchases for - his employers. He
talked freely about prices of animals, and
the amount he would give for - such and
suck a horse. This led some of the
- loungers around the town to suspect that
he had the money along with him.
Without making any purchases he
started for Moline about 11 o'clock.
He was driving a horse hitched to a
light spring buggy. When a few miles
out of the Briar Bluff two masked burg
lars rushed from the hedge at a lonely
spot in the road. One grabbed the horses'
hf ad, while the other placed a cocked re
volver at nilburn's head, and told him
that if be valued his life not to make any
- noise. They ordered him to get out of
the rig, and Jim, still being covered by
the cocked revolver, did so, and one of
the highwaymen went through his pockets
while the other made him feel uneasy
with the gun leveled at him.
Jim hadn't much money only about
f 3 and this they took possession of to
gether with several other little things he
had in his pockets, and then told him to
drive for home, all the while cursing him
for not having had more money. Jim ar
rived home at Moline all right, but al
most scared to death.
The wonderful Zanzic, the monarch
of conjurers, appeared at the Grand
opera house to an appreciative audience,
introducing in addition to other super
natural feats, the latest and greatest
Parisian success, 'Black Art.' It would
be unnecessary for the Gazette to tro into
any extended description of ZhdzIc's
work. To believe it one must see it.
There is not the possibility of a doubt
that Zacfcic is today the greatest living
artist of his kind in the United States.and
probably in the world. His experiments
of black art were perfectly wonderful
Figures and objects materialized and did
their master's bidding, while the aston
ished audience looked on with bated
breath and riveted. The celebratad
Hindoo basket trick, the chest and
cabinet tricks and dozens of others were
executed with Mr. Zanzie's customary
grace and ease. St. Joseph Daily Ua
Zsnziu appears at Harper's theatre next
Monday and Tuesday evenings, and that
our people are sure of a treat is only
voicing the sentiments of the press
wherever he has appeared.
Joslin, May 14.
The following from "Bill Nye" is
worthy of repetition. "How best to be
reelected is the great question of legisla
tion, not bow bent to deserve it. The
country and state may go to grass, but
the fall elections must be looked out for,
There is to be "Children's Day" at En
terprise the last Sunday of this month, at
Zuma the first Sunday in June, and at
Joslin the second Sunday in June.
Although we are having what may be
termed a cold, backward spring, yet our
markets are supplied with southern pro
ducts. (Jan any one give a good reason
why a duty should not be placed upon
fruits and vegetables grown in the south
for the benefit of our own market garden
ers and fruit raisers?
How many farmers are going to be
fooled by the proposal to place - a duty
upon imported farm products? Would it
not be just as sensible to place a duty
upon coal to keep it out of Newcastle?

A Beautiful Magazine-
The Chicago Journal says: "Not con
tent with beating the world with its art
calendars for 1S90, the Chicago & Grand
Trunk railway has now eclipsed its own
record by the publication of a magazine,
entitled 'Gateways of Tourist Travel.'
The work is elegantly gotten up and con
tains a host of the finest photogravure
views of scenes along the line of the
road. The whole forms a work of art."
This beautiful book is printed on coated
book paper, with seventy-five engravings,
all of the photogravure or half-tone pro
cess, fifty large quarto pages, and mailed
free to any address on receipt of SO cents
in postage sumps by W. E. Davis, G. T.
& T. A. Chicago & Grand Trunk Rail
way, Chicago, 111.
The sale of summer tourists' tickets
commences June 1. The "Seaside and
White Mountain Special," finest train in
the world, will be run each Wednesday,
commencing with June 25. Write for
Poor Postal Card.
Much complaint has been made as to
the quality of the postal cards furnished
under the contract recently awarded
The cards answer the purpose very well
for blotting pads and things of that sort,
but it is extremely difficult to write on
them with pen and ink, and at the same
time preserve one's patriotism. The
matter has been brought to the attention
of the department, and the third as
sistant postmaster general has ordered all
the postals of an inferior quality re
turned to the contractors to be re
placed by others of a quality called for
by the contract.

There is a man in Knox county who Is
a thorough believer in the doctrine that
it is the consumer who pays the tariff tax.
I That man is Rev. Mr. Kent, of Abing
don. Mr. Kent is an Englishman, but it
is not because he is an Englishman that
he is a free trader. He is such from a
bit of personal practical experience. Mr.
Kent's father, or father-in-law, was a
manufacturer of shawls in an English
manufacturing town, and designed send
ing over to Mrs. Kent a pair of shawls.
But he died unexpectedly, and the family
knowing the intent, concluded to send
them anyhow. The old gentleman just
before bis death had ordered to be made
for himself two pairs of trowsers of the
very finest materials, but they had never
been worn. These they also concluded
to send, as they could be altered to suit.
So the shawls and trowsers and some
other little knick-nacks were carefully
packed, and shipped to Mr. Kent
as a present, and freight paid.
But when the package reached
New York it was detained in the
custom house, and contents exam
ined and appraised. Mr. Kent was noti
fied by the collector of the port of these
facts, and that the goods were dutiable,
and that the duty or tax on them was $10,
and that Tipon his remitting the $10, the
goods would be forwarded to him. He
remitted the $10, and he and his wife are
or were wearing goods intended as a free
gift to them that cost them $10. He is
thoroughly convinced that he and his
family, as the consumers of these goods,
paid that tax. But that is not his only
experience. A lady friend of tne family
in England sent over as a present a book,
the English price of which was 40 cents
This little package also got tangled in the
meshes of the custom house, tnd Mr. Kent
got a letter from the collector saying the
duty, or tax, on the book was ten cents,
and that on receipt of the ten cents the
book would be forwarded. In this
case the paltry sum of ten cents was
remitted, and Mr. Kent's family have the
satisfaction of reflecting every time they
take up that book to read it, that they
paid a tariff tax of ten cents on it before
they enjoy that privilege.
We believe that several 8wedish
preachers hereabouts had a similar book
experience. There are printed in Sweden
many books that Swedish preachers need
that they cannot get in this country.
They know the price of the books in
Sweden, and send on drafts for that
amount; but when the books reach the
custom house in New York the consign
ors are notified that there is a certain tar
iff, or tax, that must be paid before they
can get them, though they have already
paid for the books. So these poor repub
lican Swedish preachers have to come
down with the stamps and pay this tax.
We have heard of three or four cases of
this sort among our Swedish preachers .
And yet they will persist in voting the

STANLEY LECTURES JOHN BULL:
thm Explore Gives the "Namby-Pamby
Journalists a Going Over.
London, May 14. Th i reception of
Henry M. Stanley by the lord mayor and
the corporation of London in the Guild
hall, yesterday, was attended by 2,600 en
thusiastic guests. The lord mayor pre
sented Stanley with a gol d casket contain
ing an address from the London corpora
tion, to which Stanley i-enponded, thank
ing his entertainers for the honor con
ferred upon him. The Congo country
might have belonged to ICngland, lie said,
if Englishmen had listened to the lectures
he delivered between 18 r and 1881. The
consequence is that Belgium is reaping
100 per cent of the benefits.
The Briton Raked Over the Coals.
England might have had East Africa,
but her journalists see e erything through
an opaque glass, and Go-many to-day has
the lion's share and cannot fail to win the
Congo in the long run. The Germans, he
said, have a monarch who is wide-awake.
Maj. Wissman never heard of such things
as the Quakerism, peace societies, anti-enterprise
companies, ard namby-pamby
journalism, which are clngstoevery hearty
endeavor in England. I e expressed hope
that the government would Remember the
services of his companions, and not chill
their young souls wit h t he neglect which
first warped poor Gordoii after his heroic
achievements in China.
A BOYCOTT BY FARMERS.

DF.CATCR, Ind., May 14. Fifteen hun
dred farmers belong to the thirty lodges
of the Farmers' Mutu d Benefit associa
tion that surround Warren, a town of
2,000 people, west of her. Their object is
to compel the merchants of that and other
towns to sell goods to tb-m at 10 per cent,
above cost. Merchants generally have re
fused to do so, and there u pon the society
has withdrawn ita trade from the towu.
The Newspaper Vo reed to Quit.
The boycott is as effect ual as was ever in
augurated by Irish ten.mts, the farmers
having made arrangem jnts to establish a
general merchandise st ire in each town
ship, under the immediate awspices of the
association. Fully HO ier cent, of the farm
ers have boycotted the V.'arren merchants.
The local uewspairt-rof t reive years' stand
ing has been forced to suspend, and mer
chants are talking of closing business.
Even the merchants of the larger towns
are alarmed an account t f the rapid growth
of the society.
