Are there fire hugs in Rock Island?
The inquiry will be answered by many in
the affirmative, ani rather emphatically
at that. There hi.ve been suspicions of
incendiarism for some time growing out
tbo mynterious. burning, first of the
barn on the Bailey Davenport premises.
and these suspicions have been strength
ened from time to time by other similar
res the destruction of the barn on Mr.
Geo. Miner's place, the ruination of the
Ellis building on Third avenue and still
later the loss of tho Gray box factory has
confirmed such beliefs.
Who the fiend s or what his motives
may bu. nnleas thi mere gratification of
instincts born of tie proprietor of the re
gicns of eternal flnt.any investigation that
has thus far been made has failed to dis
close. The matter is one. however, that
should enlist the earnest attention, labor
and skill of the p ilire, for than in Rock
Island no better fluid of operation for one
who glories at tbe sight of a furious blaze
unchecked until it has devoured every
thing within its reach, could be
found. Our facilities are such that it is
m possible to subdue a fire in its irjcipi-
ency, and the incendiary therefore has
but to apply his torch and then watch and
gloat over the result. Let the fire bugs
be run down and properly dealt with.

ave gone too far in their at

sole aim to create the impression that

prejudice agaic st him. The removal of
sucb a prejudice Is a very simple matter
wherever Mr. (Jable goes. Macomb peo

stated his determination to return to the

and he continued to grow worse until
2:30, when he died. A report spread im
mediately among the soldiers that Sulli
van had died of black vomit which is a
characteristic of yellow fevei, and they
at once became terrified. All such ideas
were disabused, however, by the result of
a post mortem held by Dr. Craig last

BEFORE THE ARBITRATORS.
Some Intrrmtinic Testimony About tho
Cmtral Strike Declared OaT.
New York, Sept. 3. Vioe President
Webb was the first witness before the ar
bitration board yesterday. His testimony
was a repetition of his statements to the
press Hint others in the past few weeks.
He denied that there was any trouble on
the Central now, and ttaid that a number
of men had quit the company's employ
and their places had been filled with new
men. He ne very little information as
to why the men had been discharged,
whose dismissal bad caused the strike,
holding that the company was not bound
to tell any man why he was discharged.
It'fiiMs to Answer a Question.
Generally the men in question had lost
their places on account of unsatisfactory
service. Master Workman Jjee was very
arrogant and insolent, and had threatened
to tin up tliu road unless he not some of
Vanderbilt's money. He refused, by ad
vice of his attorney, to reply to the ques
tion "When did vou first arrange for the
employment of Pinkerton men?" but said
lie had not asked protection from the au
thorities before employing them. The
men discharged seventy eight out of 22,
OiHl except those for whom there was no
work, had been dismissed on reports of the
awret service of the railway compnny.anc!
the papers iu the case had all boon de
stroyed. Master Workmen on the Stmnd.
Master Workmen Valentine and Lee
were the next witnesses. The former said
that his understanding was that he had
been discharged liecause he was a Knight
of Iabor. Iee gave similar testimony,
saying that Manager Toucey told him
personally that he was an agitator, and
must go. The discharge of men without
giving them a hearing was a violation of
an Hgreement with the men. Daniel Mc
Carthy swore that his discharje was the
result, as Toucey told him, of his being
Says the ClmrRe Was False.
Charles Mullnn, a tnem)er of the exec
utive committee of D. A. 'U, testified that
he was discharged July 20, after eight
years' employment. He was told it was
because be bad liud in order to obtain a
pass. The charge was false. J. J. Hol
land and J. W. Devlin, of the general ex
ecutive board, both testified as to their
meetings with Webb and Toucey, the tes
timony being a reiteration of the reports
printed in these dispatches at the time
the meetings took place.
Correspondence with Powderljr.
The most, important testimony given, aa
showing bow Powder!- felt about order
ing n strike, with reference to the pros
pect of winning, wus that of Master
Workman Lee, who was recalled to the
atand. A letter from Powderly dated
l''eb. 3, 1JM. advised Le to "feel your way
carefully," remembering that he was cop
ing unit one of the strongest corporations
in America, and to treat the company
courteously. 1'inler date of April 17 Pow
derly regretted to see that the. road was
picking oil' so many knights, and advised
1'c to do all possible to prevent, a strike,
u Inch; he said, was what the road wanted.
"The order," he wrote, "could not now
upport a strike; liesides, I am informed
Mr riepew is anxious to hare The men
strike." On July 5W Iee w rote Powderly
that the road was crowding the knights
very hard, evidently trying to force a si rike.
Itenew' Weak tipat rointed Out.
Aug. 2 Powderly wrote regretting the
condition of affairs, saying that if there
was to be trouhle, it. would come in Pe
pew'a alwencu. " He still advised avoidance
of a strike at all haz trds, as the order
could not support it. "Act on the follow
ing suggestions:" he wrote. "Select from
your men such as are good and reliable,
and secure places for them in the west.
Tlrtm have them ask for shorter hours
and higher pay. Tbis the road will not
grant. Then have them quit and take the
new places secured "for them. Do this se
cretly, and wait for Mr. Depew'a return.
He is a presidential candidate, and would
not care for a strike on his road."
Powderly Hopeless of Wlnnlnc
Again, under date of Aug. fi, Powderly
aayai "It ia madness for the men on the
Central to ytrike. They cannot win." He
calls attention to tbe fact that 1R!3 will
be a presidential year, and in IH',13 tb
World 'a fair will be held, and for that rea
son the road wanted the trouble got oat
of the way at once. In conclusion he
says: "We cannot assist you. Workmen
of this age will not stand assessments. If
the strike ia inevitable, let tbe men of the
New lurk Central eivter it with their
Mr. Powderly waa called, and related
his interview with Mr. Webb, but said
nothing new. Peudiug the. st rike he said
he had no interview with any ot the -off!'
