The funeral of Dr. J. W. Cowdeu waa
held from Masonic temple at 2:30 this af
ternoon, the body having been conveyed
there this morning by Undertaker Knox.
The exercises were held in the main lodge
room, where an immense concourse of
people had assembled. The ceremonies
were in charge of Trio Lodcie 57, A. P. &
A. M , and were conducted by
G. F. Kramer, worshipful master.
The beautiful and impressive
responsive ritualistic service was carried
out, opening with praver by J. F. Rob
inson, chaplain, followed by the singing of
"Jesus Lover of my Soul" b? a special
choir of male and female voices, who also
rendered "Rock of Ages" at the con
The sombre black casket in which the
remains rested exposed to view was
banked with floral tributes. At the head
was a pillow of crysanthemums with the

'tom the sorrowing children while at
the feet was a lovely design from
the Mason fraternity emblematic of the
order. There were m ino other floral oN
fe rings from friends. Candles burned
about the alter and the Uluminitei "O
hung in the north end of the chamber over
the body .
The pall bearers, all brother Misons ,
were, C. L. Walker, Oliver Olson, S. J .
Collins, John Weyernauser. H. D. Mack
and C. E Fisher. At the grave at Chip-
pionock the final grand honors were paid
to the deceased by the fraternity and the
body was consigned to its final restin g
place in the grave.
A large train of carriages followed the
hearse, and a great many people sto od
about outside the temple to witness the
departure of the cortege for the cemetery
C. S. Darrow, the eloquent tariff re
form speaker, so well and favorably
known in Rock Island and Moline, es
pecially among the laboring men, is be
ing criticised considerably just now for
something he claims he didn't do. He is
assistant corporation counsel for Chioago,
and it was told on him that he went to
Springfield and asked Streeter to with -draw
in favor of Judge Altgeld, Mayo r
Cregier's candidate, and also advised
Palmer to pull out and let his solid con
stituency go over to Altgeld. The story
sounds improbable, and Mr. Darrow has
now shown those who are demandin g his
removal from office, very conclusively
that his trip to Springfield had no politi -eal
bearing whatever. He says: "I
went to Springfield solely on legal buai -ness
connected with the city and I mail a
no suggestion whatever to have General
Pdlmcr's name withdrawn. I have said
from the start and I say now that the
democrats should stick to Palmer. I did
not go there in the interest of any candi
date for United States senator. My miss
sion was to see Attorney General Hunt
concerning ths quo warranto proceed'
ings in the gas trust cise." And Darrow
ia one of those men who. when he speaks,
the people believe him.

Moline's new saving bank is organized
and ready for business, the capital stock
of $100,000 baying been subscribed. The
Id Moline savings bank had no capital
stock, the business being carried en on
the personal responsibiliey of the trustees,
which was considered good. But a new
state bank, with a large capital stock, is
deemed a move in the right direction. It
is to be known hereafter as the Moline
State Savings bank. The following of
ficers were elected for the new bank:
President Porter Skinner.
Vice President H. A. Ainsworth.
Cashier C. F. Hemenway.
Directors Porter Skinner, S. W.
Wheelock, George H- Edwards, Hiram
Darling, C. F. Hemenway, C. A. Ros.
H. A. Ainsworth, Andrew Friberg, W.
H. Adams, the latter of Port Byron.
The last four are are new directors and
the others are the old board. The new
charter requires nine directors.

City Marshal Fitzgerald, of Sterling,
was in the city last evening making in
queries of City Marshal Miller as to Win.
Simmons, the Muncie, Ind., general thief,
whom Judge Smith sent to the peniten
tiary for two years a few weeks ago.
Simmons it seems, visited Sterling a short
time before coming to Rock Island and
got away with two plain gold rings in one
tore, two initial rings in another and
two costly shawls from a dry goods store,
the total value of bis operations being
$95. The peop'.e of Sterling will have
use for Simmons when he has completed
his present term in the penitentiary.

Manager Montrose, of Harper's theatre,
has demonstrated the fact that the thaatre
going people of Rock Island are to have
the best on the road as fast and as often
as he can give it to them, in his eapture
of the new spectacular play,"The Bottom
of the Sea," for next Wednesday night.
It is of somewhat novel material and is
an adaptation by W. A. Brady from the
French of "Le Fond de la Mer," which
wsb presented in Paris several years ago,
and had a long run in the gay capital at
the Porte St. Martin. It is to be presented
here with a cast of rare excellence and with
scenic and mechanical effects of wonder
ful splendor. Weird submarine scenes,
an outside public will think, is beyond
the pale even of the most daring expert
in stage mechanism. However, the
scenes, or rather tableaux of the ocean's
depth are shown in ten successive trans
formations, and from all accounts are of
remarkable power and ingenuity. All
the resources of scenic and mechanical
genius have been taxed to add to its real
istic and picturesque beauty, and the com
bat between the villian and the hero on the
bed of the ocean, is an incident of marked
strength, producing an effect never hefore
witnessed. In this act, which is wholly
pantomimic, there are exceedingly life
like fish daning about, and a terrific fight
with a huge octopus by the divers.
Act first shows the destruction of a
steamer in mid-ODean; the rescue of its
passengers by a passing yacht. Act
second is laid in France. The third act
shows the actual working of the laying
of a submarine cable. Act fourth is at
the bottom of the sea. Act fifth is i
court-martial by the admiral of the navy
And the finale of the piece ia the terrific
leap of the villain from a hi,h cliff into
the 6e a to escape Lis pursuers. The
scenery for this production was painted
by John H. Young, of the Broadway
theatre, New York, and the production
is to be mourned here exactly in the same
superb manner that characterized the
great success of the spectacle in New
