from Rock Island on Jan . S last, and who
it was supposed was an absconder to the
amount of sever; 1 hundred dollars and a

11:3 return waa as mysterious, abrupt
SEJ unheralded as was his disappearance.
He arrived from Chicago last night, .ook
a blue car at the Hock Island depot and
alipbticg at the Rock Island house, en
ured as unconcerned as you ploase.
Walking up to the counter he registered
"L R- Frinfe. City," when he went over
and had an interview with his successor,
Aj--nt VTiater, of the StaWs offl.-e. This

know that in the recent affairs with -Thick

here a day or two looking after some
bibiDe?s matters, and will then return to
Chicago and reenter the emplo;.meat of
tbe company, either In the offices there,
or as express agent, running out of Chi
When asked where he had been since
leaving Rock Island, Mr. Frin't re
"I have not been far away. Thi UnU
ted States company has known of my
whereabouts right along, and has been
in communication with me. Tbe past
week I have been in Chicago."
"Have you any explanation to make
as to your manner of leaving Reck Isl
land?" "Nothing, further than to say thi.tlhad
traubles which to one can understand and
which I cannot explain without involving
others. I committed do defalcation how
ever and I am satisfied in knowing that
my employers know that."
"Have you Been your family since leay
ing Rock Island T"
"Oa yes, I waa with them for three
weeks at the home of my wife's sifter
near Qaincy. They are there still and
will remain there until I send for them
from Chicago "
Mr. Frink showed no disposition to
conceal anything and made frequent
allusion to the circumstanoes which have

Just now it looks as if Rock Island
might go without a street sweeper the
coming season. At a meeting of the
city council not long since John Bollman
received permission from the council to
sweep the payed streets and he has since
made a canvass of our business men with
a view of learning how far they will sup
port him in his public enterprise, his idea
being to purchase a $2,000 sweepsr. So
far however he has met with very little
encouragement and is almost ready to
give up his project. It is to be hoped
that he will not and that he will
make another canvass and that our busi
ness men will fully understand the bene
fits to accrue before refusing to contrU
bute to the support of the sweeper.
