Ureal Improvements; Promised.
This morning in the circuit court
this mom ire? Judfe Smith annotated Mr
Fred Haas receiver for the Rock Island &
Milan road, fixing the bond at 120.000
In making the selection Judge Smith
stated it was in deference to the
petition of nine tenths of the stock
holders, who certainly had a right to ex
pect that their wishes as to the appoin
tee be respected.
Mr. Hassi was seen bv an Argus re
porter sooii after bis appointment, and
he stated his expectation of entering noon
his duties next Monday morning if he
could arnnge matters by that time.
In rclatioi to his policy he said
i snail be guided by two aims
to improve the service and to in
crease the net income. lieidly the -ac
con. plisbment of the first object is essen
UbI to tie success of the second. My
ambition h, to provide better accommo
dations and thus secure more patronage
and then have the facilities for handling
all the business that comes to us. I be-
leve the rr ad can be made to pay nicely."
As to sel ing the road. Mr. Hass had
lothine to say, his reply to the Ques
tion on this, subject being that he would
endeavor to do whatever was for its best
interests, and the best interests of the
stockholders. The appointment takes
the road oi.l of the hands of the stock
holders and releases all property hereto-
I ore attached by creditors on the nresi-
dent's confession of judgment.
The put lie will remember the scofls
and sneers hurled at Rock Island by the
Davenport press, of which the Times was
foremost, at the time that objections were
raised here a year and a half ago to Supt.
Schnitger, of the Holmes syndicate,
bringing a force of Davenport men over
to lay tracks in Rock Island at a season
of the yesr ju.it before the opening of
winter, whi-n Rock Island men were out
of work. Wben the situation was at
that time made clear to Mr. Schnitger by
the Arols, he immediately discharged
such of his Davenport men as he could
fill their places by Rock Island men. But
now it is spring time when there is plen
ty of work, and a Rock Island contract

pavement. Naturally that firm has a
few experienced men who can be used
advantagecusly, as they had become fa

undertakings in Rock Island. But they

A NEW CHAIRMAN.
The Democratic State Central Coat'
mtttre Hu IeIoa P. Phelps at Ms
Head Bern T. Cable for loncreM.
Delos P. Phelps, of Monmouth, mem
ber of the committee at large, was yester
day unanimously elected chairman of the
democratic state central committee at the
meeting in Chicago. . Upon accepting the
office he made a graceful speech, refer
ring at some length to Mr. Campbell's
services to the democracy of Illinois, and
predicting a democratic victory at the
coming election, which would insure the
choice of a senator of the party in sym
pathy with the people.
The following memorial was adopted
during the session, reported by Messrs.
Thornton, Haynes and Bouton:
' Whereas, death has removed from
among us our late member and chairman,
lion. J. C. Campbell.
"Resolved, That in his death the state
has lost an honest and upright citizen,
the democratic party one of its most un
tiring and efficient advocates, and the
state committee an able and energetic
"Resolned, That this committee extends
to the family of the deceased its heart
felt sympathy in its irreparable loss.
"llesolved. That these resolutions be
spread upon the records of this commit
tee, and that the secretary be directed to
transmit a copy to the family of the de
ceased." A sub-committee, consisting of Messrs.
Richards, Chase, Cummings, Nelson and
J. D. Wright, was appointed to draw up
a constitution and by-laws to govern the
workings of the committee. Two plans
were also proposed looking to a more ef
fective organization. One was the hiring
of a competent secretary at a salary of
fl.000 for the campaign, and the other
for an enlargement of the state commit
tee instead of 27 members as now con
stituted, to have 102 members, or two
from each senatorial district. In con
nection with its regular " report of the
proceedings of the committee, the Chi
cago Ilerald has the following to say in
regard to the Tenth and Eleventh dis
tricts: The presence of ex-Senator Bell, of
Peoria, who ran for lieutenant governor
on the ticket with Gen. Palmer two vears
ago, and who is now editing the Peoria
Ilerald. revived the Story that he would
contest the Tenth congressional district
with Post this year. Mr. Bell would
neither affirm nor deny the story, how
ever, contenting himself with saying that
he thought Post would be beaten this
year, and he did not understand that
Worthington was a candidate for the dem
ocratic nomination. Another democrat
from the western part of the state who is
expected to redeem a congressional dis
trict this fall was Ben Cable, of Rock Isl
and. Mr. Cable is a young man of a great
deal more than ordinary ability and inde
pendent means, who could easily carry the
Elevmth district were he to make the
race. He, like Gest. the present con
pressman, lives in Rock Island, which is
the strong republican county of the dis
trict, and, as he is just as popular there
as Gcst is unpopular, could easily carry
that bailiwick. Chairman Phelps, who
lives in the same district, told Mr. Cable
yesterday that were he to take the nomi
nation he could promise that it would
come to him with practical unanimity,
and tee entire sentiment of the district
seems to be in that direction.

Haas entered his motion for a new trial
in the fee case of McEniry vs the city of
Rock Island, in which the jury returned
a verdict for $423 for the plaintiff.
Messrs. Kenwortby-and McEniry urged
the sufficiency of the late trial. The

dict could be sustained in a higher court
and that it was not in his opinion based
npon the weight of. the evidence, as be

$150, which be considered an amount if

settlement with Mr. McEniry, after being
informed by the city attorney of the stat
us of the case in court.

An exciting little episode occurred in
the east end of the ball on the second
floor of the Buford Second avenue block
yesterday afternoon. Frank Clough, the
undertaker, had engaged the law firm of
Searle & Searle to defend him in a suit
which W. L. Coyne had brought against
him for "professional services," and in a
dispute which arose over the customary
retainer fee, Mr. Clough lost his temper
and made an insinuation concerning the
business honesty of the law Arm of Searle
& Searle. The impeachment was quickly
resented by Mr. Chas. Searle who ordered
Mr. Clough from the office, and upon Mr.
Searle attempting a forcible ejection, Mr.
Clough made a remaik concerning Mr.
Searle's ancestry which the latter quickly
nailed to the teeth of the accuser.
A heated interchange of epithets, none of
which are to be found in the code of so
cial etiquette, followed, and this morning
Mr. Clough filed a warrant spainst Mr.
Searle, charging him with assault, and to
which Mr. Searle entered a counter
charge against tbo complainant of using
language calculated t force a breach of
the peace. The trial has been stt for
