Woodmen of America, and tbe visit has

joint meeting bad been arraoged by the
local camps, 28 and 809 and a lares number
of Woodmen not only from Rock Island,
out rrom the county at large and Daven
port, - bad assembled to ere at the
toead officers. Mr. J TT t..
- mmm M
bsen agreed upon to onen tle mmu
iag and after this had bee i . done
he gave way to Hon. H. C. Cletvelaod,
whom be invi ted to act as presidi ut officer
of tbe evening.-
On tbe arrival of the head officers Rev.
. W. Gue was introduced and laade an
excellent address of welcome, soeaklnir
of the advantages of Rock Ialmd, tbe
bispitable and cordial natun. of the
paople, iu public spirit and eiteroriae
ad of iu progress. The speakor euted
that he had resided here not vet
four vears and he hid h. .
much attached to the city, that he
would like to live here alwujs. He
alluded to the strong features of the
order, which attracted his interest and
drew him toward it. It not only offers
advantages of a social and imnobliog
order, but its teachings were natrintie
and said Mr. One if there went to be a
call for arms today, there would not be
found any order that could s nd to the
front such a body of men as tie 50,000
Modern Woodmen of America. He also
commended it from a business iind flnan
oial point of view. Iu system ot insur
ance, safe aad economical, was i uperior to
that offered by any other similar organiza
tion, he held. It was a society to which
all could belong, the low and the high,
the poor as well as the rich could particU
pate in its blessings. Within lis halls the
laboring man was as good as the man
whose money he made. It wai the order
of the laboring men. Mr. One oonstrasto
ed some of the varioa secret sot leties, not
mentioning any other by name. Jut hold
ing that while some were detrimental to
society to morality and to the advance
ment of our better interests, o .hers were
beneficial and that the Woodmen belonged
to the latter class. In conclusi n he bade
the visiting officers a hearty w slcoma to
Head Consul W. A. Northcott of
Greenville, in replying on behijf of the
head officers stated that it would be need
less to explain anything about the Wood
men order to an assemblage of Rock Isk
and Woodmen. Rock Island iwunty bad
been justly termed the borne of Woodmen;
It was the heart of the order. He spoke
at length on tbe bright prospects
that were now before th) society
which in ejlre past year bad bn threat
ened with discord and diartption, and
alluded touchingly to some of its higher
alma in caring for the widoa and or
phans of deceased members. -

At the conclusion of dinner Presiden
Jackson arose, and spoke of tbe pleasure
it afforded the businesi men ot Rock
Island to .meet tbe Jtead officers of the
Modem Woodman. He then proposed
the toast "Long life to th order of Mod-
era Woodmen -of Americu and tbe suc
cess of Its head officers," v hich was unani

A bold attempt was made at 8:30 last
evening, to plunder the rooms occupied
by C. Wolff, the gunsmith over his shop
on Eighteenth street. While engaged in
bis shop, Mr. Wold heard footsteps on
the floor above him and knowing his wife
was ont shopping be went up the outside
stairway to invistigate. He found the
lower part to tbe door of his living apart
ment broken and the door forced open.
As he started to enter a man jumped out
and tried to pass him, but Mr. Wolff
grappled with him and the two fell most
of the way down the iairs. At the foot
the prisoner broke away and started to
run down Eighteenth street. Mr. Wolff
however was too quick for him and re
captured him, whereupon the fellow said.
"ther ia another one up there yet; better
let me go catch him." Mr. Wolff
thanked the prisoner for the pointer, but
thinking about the old story of a bird in
the bush, he placed his man in the freight
room of the American exprees office and
told the men there to watch him, but did
not stop to further explain and hurrying
out met Officer Schaab and tbe two went
on a search for the other fellow. They
were not rewarded nntil they reached the
roof, to which tbe officer traced him,
where they found tke prisoner crouched
behind the enpalo on an adjoining build
ing. He was promptly arrested and at
tbe Armory he" gaye his name as Frank
Wilson of Ft. Wayne. Ind. He had on
rubber shoes and showed every evidence
of being a professional burglar. His
companion, who waa so kind as to give
him away, escaped from tbe American
express office in the excitement and has
not since been found. ' Tbe plunderers
had done np two bundles of clothing, one
of which was deposited in tbe hallway
and the other was on the roof.
