BOB M'GEE'S SCALP.
Slows Took It u4 Robert Waste
B.OOO IrxJemalty 'or It.
Robert McGee, of Easton, Kan., is bat
SO years old, yet he has gone twenty-six
years without a scalp, with a ballet in his
ribs and the scars of several awful wotinds
by Indian arrows. It adds not a little to
the interest of his case to learn that be was
shot and scalped by the once noted Little
Turtle, and the ball now lodged between
two of his ribs was put there by Little
Turtle, with the identical pistol which
President Lincoln had not long before pre
sented to the "noble red man."
Senator FTumb, of Kansas, has intro
duced a bill in congress to pay McGee
15,000 out of the genial or Indian fund,
and presents tn support of it. abundant
evidence to prove

Union, New Mex
ico, On the 11th of July, near where the
city of Great llend now stands. Little Tur
tle's band of Sioux warriors attacked the
train. The whites fought long ami well,
but were overpowered and every one killed
except young McGee.
It sems t hat the Irnlians at first intended
to spare him for souse reason, but after
compelling him to vritneas the torture of
others not quite dead they decided to kill
him also. The chief shot him with the ele
gant pistol he carried as a Lincoln souvenir,
and three spears were run into his back as
he lay upon the ground. Little Tnrtletben
toreoff his scalp and struck him twice with a
tomahawk, fracturing the skull at each
blow. The savages departed, and in a few
hours a party of soldiers arrived on their
way to Fort Larned. Sorrowfully they
gathered the corpses for burial, but per
ceiving nins of life in McGee they bound
op his wounds and took him to the fort.
The surgeons exhausted their skill upon
him; the struggle was long and terrible,
out ne Bveu as reunarkaMe a recovery as
any related in history. The details were
laid before President Iincoln, who sent for
the boy, and was deeply affected by his ac
count. . The western generals were directed
. to ravor him in employment. Many years
after McGee 's uncle acquired wealth in the
west and tried to recover the scalp from
Little Turtle, but unsuccessfully. McGee
Is now apparently in robust health, but of
course terribly disfigured.

Something About Capt. Conch. Who Re

Capt. W. L Couch, who was shot recent

westerner. Although bom in North Caro

six years he was a farmer. Then ho em

attention, and he made a fortune, which
he lost by indorsing the comraerciid paper

of the regard felt for the captain through

it became necessary to remove Adams to
the jail at Wichita, Kan. The old boomers
were getting ready to lynch him.

We have heretofore given the partic-1

Capt. John Hall proposes to use upon his
Clark street railway line in Peoria. Tbe !
Journal of that city has received a circa-
Ur from Geo. Pennxk in which be dis
cusses the whole system. In the course
of his remarks he says:
"Tbe eight horsepower machine will
develop more actual mechanical horse
power than the combined power of two
ten horse-power motors as now operated
by the several dynamo methods. We j
develop this power, not only from the
fact that our current is close at hand, but
from the additional fact that I have in
vented an electrical machine which I
have caused to be called "A Compound
Axle Motor," (patent applied for), in
which no gearing whatever is used. (This
machine will be exhibited at Peoria in
The Pennock motor car (patent also
applied for; it will be teen at Peoria) is
fifteen feet long. It has a storage capac
ity of 300 cells. We propose to pnt in
this car ISO cells in separate batteries of
sixty cells, iu multiple arc banks of twen
ty cells, all connected through the Pen
nock automatic current feeder."

"It is proposed to use tbe Pennock
Primary system on the street railroads at

system is a success, and if it proves so in
actual practice, tbe dynamo is doomed.'

Tin says of the case:
In northwest Davenport there lives
man no, hardly that, but something
bearing the outward semblance of a man
who has been in the habit of heating
and in various unseemly ways ahtming
his wife, a hard workmg woman, wbo
does everything possible for tbe comfort
of ber brutish husband and takes the best
care of home and children, but owing to
circumstances in which she is placed, so
severe has been the abuse received by
ner, mat on several occasions the neigh
bors have had to interfere to save her
life. This slate of affairs bss lasted for
some time, and would probably have
continued to the end of time, but a day or
two ago the party received a letter warn
ing him that a further persistence in his
course of abusive treatment of Lis wife
would be followed at once by "tbe se
verest punishment; that be was watched
and escape would be impossible if be cop

is on foot among the Q. engineers and

some kind by which they can treat with
the company in case of what tbey may
consider unjust treatment. Tbev think
tbey are being too severely disci
plined for trifling causes by tbe offi
cials, and at present bave no means
of appeal. If they do not like the
way in which tbey are handled, tbey
are told that if tbey do not like their
jobs they can go elsewhere, and of course
tbey realize that this is just bow the; case
stands! The movement has received im
petus by the suspension yesterday of
twelve or fifteen enginemen, which is to
day being discussed with considerable en
ergy and feeling. Borne of tbe men claim
that at present tbe situation is too one
sided for real comfort . It is not known

Tbe arsenal authorities have engaged
one of Capt. Whitney s dredge boats to
do tome important work la connection
with tbe temporary bulkhead and tbe
cribs constructed at tbe draw pier of tbe
main Rock Island bridge. The cribs bave
lieen placed in position and they are to
be filled with mul toprevent water from
leaking through when the pumps aie set
at work exhausting that from the inside.
At the same time it is deemed advisable
to strengthen tbe bulkhead by depositing
a quantity of mud along Its upper face
for a similar purpose. Tbe dredge boat
has therefore been put to work digging
mud from the bottom of tbe pool near
tbe foot of Sixteenth street and In tbe
vicinity of tbe Keator mill . One of Capt.
Whitney's towing boals is employed in
conveying large flat boats loaded with
tbe mud to tbe cribs at tbe bridge, and
Scbott & Bien's steamer, the Arctic, is
engaged in lowing the damp boats down
to tbe bulkhead and back. The work is
an important one for the reason that be
sides furnishing the mud required at these
two places, it serves to improve the II o-
Iine water power and also the approach
to the Sixteenth Btreet landing and that
to the Keator milL Moline Republican.
