The train was not very far out from
Davenport before it became apparent to
the occupants of the nicely cushioned
and handsomely painted coaches tha
they were traveling on no third class road.
The wheels glided along the Bteel rails
with a smoothness nut often experienced
on a newly ballasted track and the entire
equipment had the semblance of a locg
established trunk line.
At Tipton a delegation of .the Cedar
Rapids reception committee boarded the
train and pinned a badge on the breasts
of the excursionists. This badge served
as a carte-blanche for the visitors to the
freedom of Cedar Rapids. The advance
party was made up of Mayor J. J.
Bnouffer, City Attorney N. W. Mclvor,
Firo Chief L. M. Ajers, Aldermen Hen
dersan, Ottmar. Noble and Capt. C. E.
Patnam. Col. B. F. Bhaw, A. R. West.
The Davenport band, which had bee n
discoursing sweet medleys enroute, en
countered a rival for musical honors upon
arrival at the depot, where the Cedar
Rapids band were sounding a hearty
welcome. A large number of the public
spirited citizens were also at the depet to
receive th it guests .
Headed bv the two bands the party
formed in twos and marched to the opera
house, where Mayor Snouffer delivered
an address of welcome full of cordiality
and kindly greeting. He was followed
by Col. Chas. A. Clark in the same hos
pitable strain. U&yor Fieke responded
in behalf of Davenport, A. C. Dart, for
Rock Wand, and Hon. H. A. Ainsworth
for Mohne. F. C. Hormel, of Cedar
Rapids, next made a few pleasant re
marks, and the exercises closed with the
request by the mayor that the visitors
make themselves at home and enjoy
themselves to their hearts' content. The
speeches were interspersed with music by
the band and two numbers by the Daven
port quartette Messrs. Peck, Downer,
Atkinson and Knocke.
Two o'clock found the hotels com
pletely at the mercy of the hungry hosts ,
and afterwards the city was inspected,
carriages being at the disposal of the vis
itors. At the depot, just before starting
on the return trip, the appreciation and
feeling of gratitude for their magnificent
and cordial treatment, was voiced by each
and everyone of the vistors in three lusty
cheers for Cedar Rapids and her hospi
table people. And all were as deeply
impressed with the city's solidity and pro
gressive appearance. The manufactur
ing, business aid residence sections have
their respective qualities of merit, all of
which contribute to a live, bustling, sub
stantial and beautiful city .
The journey home was made with the
same safety and speed which character
ized the morning run, and if not openly
expressing it, every member of the party
mentally registered the sentiment that te
had had a thoroughly good time.
Col. French was one of the happiest
men in the party .
It was a "dry" excursion, even if the
weather was tbe opposite.
The Rock Island and Mohne guests
feel themselver tinder many obligations
to their Davenport and Cedar Rapids
Major Marks, president of the Daven
port Business Men's association, took up
a collection for the purpose of purchasing
a fine cane to be presented to President
Major Snouffer, of Csd&r Rapids, is a
daisy and a democrat. The admirable
manner in which he discharged his social
obligations yesterday as chief r xecutive,
entitles him to reelection . We are wil
ling to go out and vote for him.
Messrs. Morris Rosenfield and C.
H. Deere, with other notables,
dined at the residence of President
Ives, but had no special accom
modation on the train. The members of
Davenport band enlivened tbe home trip
by msrehing in single file through the
train, playing "Little Annie Rooney'
"Down Went McGinty," and other fami

autre fur St O.OOO.
Through Lis attorney, Hon. Chas. Dan
ham, Dr. Geo. Merryman, of Moline, Las
entered suit against A. K. Tomlinson and
others o." the Richland Grove vigilance
committee, for f 10,030 fr slatdcr and
defamation of character. It will be re
membered that the vigilance comniltee
associated the doctor's name in a manner
most unpleasant to him with the recent
robbery of the Parker family'at Cable and
be considers that not only has his good
name suffered, but his business has in
consequence of the wholly unwarranted
imputations, and he has therefore deter
mined that the only remedy is the one at
law, to which he now appeals.
Mr.TomlinBon was in the city today
and Deputy Sheriff Silvis served the pa
pers on him.
A. R. Tomlinson, of Cable, one of the
members of the vigilance committe who
has been charged also with having entered
the house of Amos Longshore, of Lynn
township, Henry county, with a view of
finding Borne evidence that would fasten to
Longshore the crime of robbing the Par
ker family near Cable, was in the city to
day and called at The Argus office to
state that he nor no member of the com
mittee had entered tbe Longshore house,
that they had at the latter's request called
at his boarding place to learn of the
whereabouts of a young man that was
m'.ss'Dg from the neighborhooJ, but had
d3ne no ransacking and had not gone
near Longehore's own house and did not
suspect bim of the crime.

Twenty-third street near Sixth avenue
last evening and is now in the police sta

city to the borne if one of ttem on Twen
ty-third and Fifth avenue, he was stand
ing a short distance frcm the house,
when the lady of the house- returned
from church. She had been accompanied
almost to her door by a lady living in
the neighborhood and her son,
and after parting company with
her friend's the lady approached her own
gate wtea the scoundrel made a most in
decent and insulting movement. The
lady hurried into her yard and into the
Louse whore she found that her girl whom
the man t ad followed was in a great state
of excitement and had telephoned for the
police. The lady at once telephoned to
the residence of S. 8. Divis across the
street, and Mr Divis seizins; his revolver
started out in pursuit of the man who
had cause 1 the disturuance and wbo had
started up Twenty-third street fo liwlng

and gave bis name Otto IT-.off, an employe
of the Ro:k Island Lumber company,

The man is evidently tbe same one who
has been creating sensations for sometime
in various parts of the city, by attacking
ladies when walking alone at night. To
day be claims that h e has no remembrance
of bis conduct last night and is very re
pentant of any wrong deed. Heh-.s got
ten himself into rather serious trouble.
On Tuesday evening this same ind:
vidual probably, created a sensation in
Moline, attacking Mrs. Dr. C. Piper on
Fifteenth street hill, and but for her for
tunate escape from her assailant the re
sults might hive been far more serious.
This locality is generally considered a
dangerous thoroughfare, siys the Jour
nal, numerous criminal assaults having
Uken place near the watering trough
But recently the p'ace has been devoid ot
incident, aid apprehension of people
passing tbar. way has subsided.
Mrs. Pipir had accompanied a sister of
Mrs Charle.s Hemenway to her home, and
had started on her return trip She was
advised to take a car, but rather prefer
ed the exercise of walking, and it being
early in the evening no trouble was an
ticipated. Before reaching the trough
some boys warned her of hving seen the
figure of a man lurking in a dark .lace,
and to avoid him she took to tbe center
of tbe street. But he was at the place
indicated, and started toward btr. She
turned and lied back to Mr. Hemen way's
houe, close y pursued by the villain. who
did not succeed in overtaking her.
The Htorasr- Battery Car.
Manager Harris off the Springfield,
Ohio, street railway company is reported
by the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette as
"Electricity will be adopted on all the
lines in Sprngfield, just as soon as a
thoroughly practical storage battery sys
tern is invented. When Mr-B. H. War
den, who is the largebt individual stock
holder in tb) company, wbb in Spring
field last November he said that tbe
Springfield cars would have to be run by
electricity in the future. The systems
which have ".he overhead wires and trol
leys are verv objectionable, and many
cities whiih have been granted
franchises to roads employing tb"-m
wish they hadn't. Congress has
notified all the electric roads in
Washington with overhead wires thus
they must b; removed aDd some other
system adop-.ed. Tbe time in which the
change must be made has been fixed at
eichteen months. Hundreds of elec
tricians and inventors are at work trying
to invent alight, efficient storage battery.
There is only one road in tbe United
States, as far as I know, which is run by
the storage battery system, and that is
the one at Dibuque, la. This is said to
work very successfully.
The next scientific expert who is inter
viewed will heartily assert that without
the overhead wire electricity as ameans of
propulsion must prove powerless. The
Abods never favored the overhead sys
tern, but if it is the only successful prac
tical arrangement for converting the elec
tric current icto a motive power, the best
thing that can be done is to view it phil
osophically and rejoice that we have it.
Though a man may not like business
he should act business-like.
