TILE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 1890.,
STICK TO TEK RECORD.
Am EtmIyc Kf ply eiYea toy the Elta
teeath Street Organ.
Tbe plain tacts set forth In last night's
Arics concerning the matter between the
late Mr. P. L. Cable and Caroline Wald
man, called forth a clouded and bewiliK
ering reply from the Union this morning.
.That paper, as usual, avoided the issue.
Last Sunday it went out of its way to
bunt up damaging facts against Mr. Ca
ble, and, as must have been expected, it
failed. As nothing truthfnl of a deroga
tory nature could be found, lies were re
sorted to. These lies were signed by
"One Who Knows," and it matters little
whether the signature was by some one
who wrote tbe libel in the Union office or
by anyone else. Every imputation and
assertion in that malicious little squib
was proven to be false, and proven too
by the affidavit of one of the parties in
terested in the railroad accident, and yet
the contemptible falsifier on Eighteenth
street says that "tbe truth is substantial
ly as set forth in the Unoin's ezplana.
tion." Tbe man who wrote that got as
near the truth as he ever expects to cet
by willful lying. He begs the question
by saying it was not a Swedish widow
but a German girl, as if that could make
any difference whatever.
Again, this bare-faced prevaricator.
when shown by affidavit that Mr. Cable
generously handed the girl $500 in addi
tion to the $1,000 already paid out of
which 500 Mr. Gest was not entitled to
one cent either in law or equity says
that tbe Argus shifts its ground to show
that the generous act was performed by
tbe present Mr. Cable's father. To discuss
any question with tbe Union one would
be obliged to shift his ground every mo
ment in order to keep within range of the
characteristic vagaries of that irrespon
sible sheet. But in this instance there
was no necessity of shifting ground ex
cept by way of imitation. The Union
said, "Mr. Cable got the girl into his of
fice, etc." What Mr. Cable was the Union
talking of? Did it not attempt to make
tbe public believe it was Mr. Ben T. Ca
bier And if not, why speak of the mat-
ter at all? Supposing the present Mr.
Cable's father, bad done precisely as tbe
Union charges him with. He had a per
feet right, legally and morally, to
treat any question of damages ugainst
his road in a manner most befit
ting its interests. And had it been
thought necessary or judicious to retain
the services of Mr. Gest for the same pur
pose that gentleman would gladly have
undertaken it. But whether the deceased
Mr. Cable was more or less just or gen
erous in the matter cuts no figure here.
That he did what was right and just and
generoas, no one can deny, and with his
actions Mr. B. T. Cable has nothing to
When the Union mentions the name of
Mr. Cable again it sbbuid specify which
one of the family is intended and not go
vaporing about in its lunatic way and
then when brought to task for its imbe
cility and impertinence, cry out that some
one is taking the ground from under its

The Fulton Journal is claiming that
there is a lie out somewhere with regard
to the Modern Woodmen affairs. It says
that Dr. McKinnie testified before the
master in chancery at Sterling on the
20th. that Dr. Ernest Mammen and John
A. Sterling, of Bloomington, had given
him permission to sign their names to the
sworn application that secured the now
famous Woodmen injunction against the
meeting of the head camp at Dea Moines.
The doctor is said to have testified that
Sterling gave him consent in writing and
that Mammen telegraphed him. Then
the Journal says that at the Des Moines
conference, August 12, both Mammen
and Sterling positively declared in the
presence of the delegates, tb&t they never
signed the application for the injunction
nor gave any person permission to do so
Freth Farts la Favor or tbe Material
Adopted by Roek Inland the
Standard for Pavlasr.
One of tbe latest converts to the idea
of vitrified brick as a good material for
paving is the Economist, the weekly
financial, commercial and real estate
paper of Chicago. The Economist recites
the fact that after years of unprofitable
experience with wood pavement, the city
of Chicago tbe street traffic of which is
naturally heavier than any American city
except New York has laid granite blocks
on all the principal streets in the busi
ness district. It then says that while the
result as to durability and cost of main
tenance have been excellent, yet the cost,
noise and the slippery condition which
granite assumes when worn, are serious
objections to this pavement.
Then referring to the wide adoption
ot vanned nrlck In smaller cities it says
that Bloomington has used brick for
paving for the last fifteen years
Decatur laid some in 1SS5 under a five-
year guarantee, and the report on this
pavement shows that in that time not a
dollar has been laid out for repairs, al
though the payement has been exposed to
the heaviest traffic, and that a guarantee
for twenty years would haye been safe.
The advantages claimed for brick paving
are economy in construction, smoothness
of surface, comparative noiselessness, no
slipping by horses, freedom from filth,
durability almost equal to that of gran
ite, and economy in repairs.
The Economist further says that the
question whether this material would
stand the extra heayy traffic of Cbicago
has not been fully tfsted. although tbe
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad
company some six months ago paved in
front of its Cbicago freight depot with
vitrified brick, whicb, it is said, fails to
show any appreciable wear from the
heavy traffic at that point.
Tests made of specimens of this vtrl
tied brick manufactured in the west have
shown a resistance of crushing strength
of from 200.000 to 800.000 pounds. An
other Advantage is that the brick does not
glase when worn, but remains rough on
The heavy expense of keeping a gravel
or macadam road in repair on black prai
rie soil is so great that some papers, nota
bly the Burlington Ilawkeye and the Cotir
er. of Evansville, Ind., seriously advo
cate tbe use of brick as a pavement for
country roads. In tbe city of Evansville,
Ind., the cost of materials and repairs on
the gravel roads amounted to $7,000
more tbnn the first cost of them in a per
iod of fifteen yearn.
The growing importance of this move'
ment is best shown by the fact that in the
last six months over 13,000,000 has been
invested in tbe west in the manufacture
of paving brick.
The following love epistle written in
leatl pencil on a piece ot brown wrap
ping paper was found not long ago in
Drury township and it has found its way
across the river and into the columns of
: tbe Muscatine Journal. Tbe identifica
tion of tbe author is unknown, but if such
a curiosity had been discovered in
Edgington township years ago, before tbe
present candidate for state senator was
married and had been without the initials
appended, there would be no trouble
in establishing his location:

A Fin Workmic Fraud.
A bogus Catholic priesthis been work
ing the people of Keokuk. From there
he went to Iowa City, and he may yet
turn up in Rock Inland. He represents
himself to be a 51 aria t father named
Guffert and is accompanied by an alleged
nephew named Dr. Blomenthal. Partus
have received letters from Iowa City re
counting tbe loyal manner in which the
rascals were entertained by the devout
Catholics of that place for an entire
week. They were taken into the homes of
the best Catholic families and treated as
though they were the saints they repre
sented themselves to be. A society young
lady gave a dinner in their honor at which
twelve courses were served. The priest
said mass, made collections of money for
missions, received presents and reaped a
rich harvest from the ill-directed gener
osity and piety of the good people of that
town. Of course a different etory was
told at Iowa City by the swindlers and
they assumed names different from those
by which they were known in Keokuk.
Making a Silatakr.
The Vnion says the editor of this paper
"is making a bad mistake in attempting
to stir up the facts in tbe law suit of the
poor German girl against Mr. Cable's
Mercer County Railroad company."
Tbe unparalleled impudence of that
statement is astounding. If the A nous
had got up the in facts tbe case and pre
sented them to the people, no objection
could have been made by anyone. The
facts only were needed by any fair-mind
ed person to convince him of an honor
able transaction. But when a sheet sets
the facts aside and substitutes for them
an array of falsehoods, and starts out to
do this without the slightest provocation,
except that born of malice and hope of
reward, what can be said of it?
After inciting a contest and being hit
rather hard, it whines and covers its bead
with its hands, blubbering: out: "On it
now; stop this quarelling. I'm only the
second man who began this fight first."

Of the chances of the river and harbor
bill and the Hennep n clause there is
something worth noting in the following
letters, written in reply to letters ot query
addressed to our western representatives,
who, of all others, ai tbe Davenport
Democrat truly says, are guarding the in
terests of this importat.t measure:
J. W. Wtlik, Esq , Davenport. In..
Dear 8ir: I am in receipt of your fa
vor of lslh Inst, and tLank you for your
kind congratulations. We are hopeful
that after years of patient work and
waiting we are going to succeed in get
ting the canal started. Success seems to
be assured, so far as congress is con
cerned. What tbe presi dent may do with
the river and harbor bill I do not know.
There is some talk of a veto in tbe pa
pers, but I trust we are not to be defeat
ed in that way. I really know of noth
ing that can be done by our Iowa friends
at present, but it may be necessary to im
press tbe president witt the earnestness
of our people in favor of the canal in case
be hesitates to approve the bill. I am
yours very truly,

into conference on those matters on which
there is disagreement. There is no
earthly danger of Hennepin being dis
turbed by a conference committee, and
neither do I think there is tbe slightest
danger that it is not passed as agreed on
in congress. As there has been no river
and harbor bill for quite it while now, I
do not think there is any danger either of
a veto. In abort, I think Hennepin an

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. . Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an Inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
