The Captala ef tie Plttaburs: Allow
Mo XoneeBOe Hie Boat Aa lacl-
Capt. John Killeen, the robust, big
hearted, wboleaouled master of the
steamer Pittsburg, is a gentleman who,
when people are placed in bis charge, be
lieves in looking after them with fatherly
interest, especially if tbey are of the
gentler sex. When the steamer Pitts.
burg atopped at the Burlington landing
the other night on her last trip down, an
elderly gentleman, accompanied by two
voune ladies boarded the boat. The
gentleman proved to be a prominent and
influential citizen of that town and one
of the young ladies was bis daughter
The other was a friend, and the twain
were bound for St. Louis or some other
point south. The gentleman commended
the girla to the captain's protecting care,
and after bidding his daughter an affeci
tionate adieu, went ashore, ne had
scarcely left the gang plank when the
girls were enjoying the attentions of two
St. Louis traveling men, whom they evi
dently knew and bad met on the boat by
prearrangement. This circumstance
didn't exactly please the commander of
the boat and he instructed the watchman
to shadow the quartet. It being late. the
girls soon went into their state rooms.
Not long afterward the wachman came
to the captain and reported that the
traveling men had entered the girls'
rooms from the outside doors. Right
eously indignant, the captain hastened to
the boat, hauled.out the gay Missourians
and gave them a lecture, the like of which
they had never received before. A party
who was a passenger on the boat and who
got off at Keokuk, said that the captain
threatened to put the traveling men off
when morning came, but as the boat
reached Keokuk during the night, the se
quel of the sensation is not known.

tmnity of getting for their own price a

portion of tbe city, with street car con

GEN. ADAM BADEAU'S STATUS.
tt Seems to Have Been a Good Deal
. Mlxedj Since 1SG9.
Washington City, Aug. 7. The status
of Gen. Adam Badeau, who for tbe past
fifteen years haa been off and on the rolls
at the army aa a retired officer, has been
at laat decided by Attorney General Miller.
The decision holds that there U no legal
right to bear Badeau's nam on the re
tired list of the army. Gen. Badeau was
appointed as assistant secretary of lega
tion at London May 6, 18C9, and resigned
his position in tbe army. Ho subsequently
resigned bis position as assistant secretary
if legation, was restored to the army and
was afterwards appointed consul general
to London. After this he was placed on
the retired list, was dropped, and by va
rious decisions was pnt on and taken off
again at intervals for several years. Xow
the attorney general decides that when he
resigned on May 6, ISfc), he was finally out
of the army apd all other decisions in
his case were erroneous.
