Someone who has evidently taken
something to heart of what appeared in
last evening's A Rous with reference to
inferior mail facilities, has been cram
ming the Union with an attempted ex
platiation, and be modestly asserts that
letters mailed in Peoria at 8 p. m. gain
thirty minutes time coming by way of St,
Louis. The Peoria & Galesburg takes
this mail out of Peoria and pouches on
the St. Louis liio north, arriving in Rock
Island thirty minutes before the Rock Is
land & Peoria." The cold facts, however,
are that the mail coming to Rock Island
ove the Burlington leaves Peoria at 3:20
p. m. and gets to Rock Island at 7:15,
whi reas the mail coming on the Peoria
leaves there at 4:10, an hour later, and
gett here at 7 20 p. m., five minutes later
than that which is sent by the Burling
ton. What can be the advantage then

Back Ialaad The Parade aad Per
feraaaaeea, Wallace & Co's. 'combined railroad
shows made their first appearance in
Rock Island today and created general
surprise in the variety and elegance of
their equipment and the completeness of
detail in every department. The parade
this morning waa excellent in all respects.
The horses are a grand show In them
selves. The chariots, wagons and cages
looked bright, fresh and new. It was a
line of glittering gold, a gorgeous and
massive spectacular processional ava
lanche. Interspersed with exquisite mu
sical organization. Then came a drove
of monster elephants and camels, the
huge monarch s of the brute creation
forming a fine termination of the hand
Inside the tents, which are pitched in
Rodman's pasture, on Moline avenue and
Twenty-seventh street, the attractions
attain a high standard of meiit. The
menagerie contains a multitude of dens
and cages, which must have cost a for
tune in themselves, filled with the finest
specimens of the animal kingdom from
every clime on the face of the globe.
The circus department was all, and in
fact more, than was advertised. In the
two rings and on the elevated stage, new
and novel acts were introduced in rapid
succession. The bareback riding by
both ladies and gentlemen was grand and
marvelous. The clowns were funny in
the extreme, and kept the audience in
roars of laughter throughout the entire
performance. The aerial performances
were far in advance ef anything of the
kind ever seen tare as startling, aston
ishing and amazing as they were novel.
The entire circus performance was
blended with new and novel features.
The principal featurea of the perform
ances, were the bareback, equestrian and
jocky acta by. Misses Pauline and Rosa
Lee, and Charles Ewers; the menage act
by Misses Jeanette Eldridge and Rosa
Anareau; the flying trapeze act by Miss
Lucille and Mr. Jordon; the wonderful
bicycle act by the four members of the
Melrose Family; the ligbtning hurdle
riding by Wo, Gorman and John Cleve
land, and the posturing act the boy and
the barrel by Jos. Judge.
In Davenport yesterday the. shows
made a great hit, the papers of that city
speaking in high praise of the exhibits
and performances throughout.
There was a good attendance this af
ternoon, and the tents will undoubtedly
be well filled tonight, as the entertain
ment is one of merit all the way through.
THE UNION MEN SPEAK.
Mr. Valk'a titateaneat aa ta the Car'
peatera' Slae Haar Maeeena Ills.
eaaned la Ylgaraas Ltaiaace.
To the A Rao,:
The Carpenters' union of Rnck Island
at tbeir last meeting considered Mr. John
Volk s statement in regard to union men
working ten and twelve hours per day.
We wish to state to the public that tbis
is false. Union men only work nine
hours per day and for all over and above
the same all onion men must receive time
and half. During the previous hot week
men that were working outside com
menced early in the morning and laid off
during the hottest part of the day. as the
union bosses were so rushed with work
that they could not spare their men to
lay off. No doubt this is the source from
which Mr. Yolk cave his statement.
Now to show Mr. Volk's generosity we
ould state in giving his men an hour on
Saturday, he begins work thirteen min
utes before one o clock every day to
make thia hour up.
Mr. Volk was at a loss to know what
to do with that hour of steam which he
would lose by giving his men the hour
on Saturday, hence he has arranged his
scbeme ot thirteen minutes per day
Therefore, the Carpenters' union does
not wish to be misrepresented, believing
that the public generally does appreciate
the just demands of nine hours which all
bosses granted except Yolk & Co
Scbnell and Collins Bros.'
Below are attached the names of the
union contractors employing neariv one
hundred men: C. W. Schreiner. W. A
Guthrie, Seivers & Anderson, Geo. Bick,
L. Ritchie, John Spilger, A. Smith, J.
Bleuer, Schroeder & Heidemann.
Committee of Cabpentkks' Union.
The Broadway Presbyterian Sabbath
school, of Rock Island, came down about
noon, 600 or 700 strong, on the Libbie
Conger. The party spent several hours
pleasantly, taking in the sights about the
city, visiting friends, and enjoying them
selves generally. The boat started back
at S o'clock. Muscatine welcomes ex
cursions of thia kind. Come again.
The above briefly outlines the features
of yesterdaj's enjoyable- trip which was
one of the most delightful excursions that
has ever been made from Rock Island
and passed off without an unpleasant in
cident to mar it from the time the boat
left until it returned. The entire affair
did great credit to the management.

TERRIBLY DESTRUCTIVE FIRE.
A Tawn In Martinique Wiped Oat and
Many People Roasted.
New York, July 1L News has been re
eived from the island of Martinique,
dated June 29, stating that on that day a
file swept over the town of Fort de France.
The caune of the fire is attributed by soma
to kerosene, and by others to a Dutch
stove. In the opinion of many, bad
prompt measures been taken and the sur
rounding houses been blown up, the town
would have been saved. The loss is very
considerable, 1,700 house having been
destroyed, valued at 12,000,000 francs (12.-
400,000), and furniture, etc., valued at
3,000,000 francs, in all a total of W.OOO.OOO.
It was impossible at the time to tell the
number of victims.
Twelve Bodies Found In the Rains.
Twelve bodies had, however, been re
covered, many charred beyond recognition
and others fearfully mutilated. Fifteen
soldiers are receiving attention at the hos
pital, many of them seriously and one, it
is said, fatally wounded. The number of
civilians wounded is considerable. Fullv
three-quarters of the town is destroyed as
regards area, md seven-eighths of the in
habitants are homeless. Five thousand
peopla were left entirely destitute, but the
surrounding towns Im-rbii relief work im

has been relieved.

charge of burglary, and the evidence
against him appeared very convincing.
The burglar in his haste dropped a hat
and a pair of shoes behind him. The hat
was identified as Weick's property. He
acknowledged that it had once been his
property, but he repudiated the shoes, and
they were tried on in tbe presence of the
court and found two sizes too small.
Weick was discharged as innocent
