The Dayenport Timet claims to have
solved the mysler? sirroundinc the sui
cide of Private George Heller, of Rock
leland arsenal. After alluding to the
tragedy which occurred at noon last Mon
day, the Timet says:
Our readers will remember that without
an excuse or reason he left the barrscktt
at the call for dinner. A few moments
later a pistol shot was heard and on going
to his room his comrades found him dead
'a suicide. Standing in front of a mir
rer be had placed a revolver to his head
and in a second of discouragement had
taken his own life. The particular? of
the affair were unusually sad. The fel
low was young, healthy, and bad nothing
to cause him to end his life. The papers,
in mentioning the affair, closed with the
"lie was quiet and sober and bis act is
shrouded in mystery."
His act was shrouded in mystery but
within the past few days the cause of his
rash act has come to light. A night or
two before his suicide he came to
Davenport and visited some of the well
known resmo, and finally reached a
gambling room on Main street, not far
from Second street and not far from Thiid
street either. He became interested in
a game of cards and before he left the
place he had lost his savings of five years,
his career as a soldier on the Island. In
that gambling room he lost $600 at one
setting, and went out and pawned his
overcoat for $10. That went the way of
the rest and the fellow was dead broke.
No wonder he was discouraged. From the
gambling room he went to the barracks,
and we all know the sequel. Discour
aged by the loss of his years of saviog,
he deliberately took his own life. '
Here is alesson from real life that
would make a good sermon for some of
our divines who are interested in good
government. Here is a soldier, with as
good a reputation as any man in the city,
driven to his death by a lot of gamblers,
who are hanging around to fleece any
and a l
It is not many weeks asr that a well
known river min went into the same
Main street den and enjoyed a sitting. It
was perhaps one of the most notable
poker sittings in the history of the city.
He became deeply interested in this sit
ting, which lasted thirty-six hours. Luck
was against the fellow. When he arose
from the board he took an inventory and
founl that he was shy just $ 3 000. He
had lost that amount in this sitting.

Yesterday afternoon tbe fiuance com
mittee of the board of superv sors wis in
session at the court house. The gautle-
men appointed by the Business Men's as
sociation for the purpose of enquiring
into the ferry franchise matter, A. P.
McGuirk, M. Bunker and J. K. McCosh
appeared before the gettlemen, accom
panied by Col Stewart, the nontoen
bridge builder. C.1. Stewart offers to
carry passengers foi 2 1 2 cents per each
trip. hie furthermore sprees to pay
the county $50 for the franchise
and he does not ask that it be
made exclusive. His plan is to
have a very rapid boat and thus make
much better time between tbe two cities
than is now made by the street car line.
Just what action the Rock Island county
board will take is more than anyone can
tell at present, although it is said that
the ferry company has never had an x-
clusive franchise on that side. Col.
Stewart seems to be much in earnest. He
will not be able to carry freight at first
but if there is a demand for i; he will put
in a freight ferry. The proposition to
carry passengers at only 2J cents per
round trip is what we want and tbe beard
should not hesitate to give him the fran
chise. Davenpert Tribune.

ing to his contract. The old man is full
of pluck, says he is a'l right, and expects
to win the money he is so hard earning.
His walk is about ninety fee', and he is
nearly a minute in walking It, for he is
not in a bit of a harry. Culling it a min
ute, in one hour he walks 540 feet, and
in one day's travel of ten hours 5,400 feet.
and in the six diys he will hae traveled
32.400 feet, or six miles and 720 feet, if
he had been building brick piles on each
corner there would be at the end of six
days a pile of 7.300 bricks or 14 400 in

The drouth alonjr the line of the C. B

so great at places, especially iust east of
the river, that trains have been crossing
that strip of ground with two tsnks to

helped the road out in the matter of wat
er supply, and one tank is enough now.
The B , C. R. & N. is handling a neat
lot of freight cars out of Davenport every
diy. Friday the shipments of miscellan
eous stuff amounted to three cars, they
are piled full to the roofs, and the ship
ments weighed unitedly 25.000 pounds.
The taxes for 1890 are now due and
