AS TO BURRIS.
The ArriRalloas Which Ltd to Hi
Iimial Prom the Carrier lrr.
Eenry E. Burris, the mail carrier, last
evening reported to Postmaster Wtll9 that
he had gotten into trouble, having been
accused of the larceny of f 1 from the
coal office of E. G. Frazer, and desired
the postmaster to make an investigation.
Mr. Wells accordingly suspended Burri9
pending an investigation.
The facts of the cae as reported at
Mr. Frsz?r'scoal office are: A lady pur
chased a dollar's worth of coal Saturd ay
morning. Chris Lirnberg, an old employe,
receiving the money in the presence of
Herman Nichols, who happened to be in
the office, and Mr. Lirnberg. as was his
custoa, laid the money on the
desk. He then went out
to sweep the walk in front, Nichols fol
lowing him out of the office. While
L'.mberg was working outs'ds Carrier
Burris went into the office, left some mail
and departed. On Limberg's return he
found the dollar missing. He at once
locked the office and started after Burris
but could not find him. The coal sold
was soft and the dollar belonged to E. B.
McKown. So when that gentleman re
turned after dinner Lirnberg reported the
circumstances to him. He at once com
municated with the police acd it was de
termined to Bet a trap for Burris. Just
before the customary time for his
coming around yesterday morning a
few pieces of money were left oa the
counter and an officer was secreted in
the back room where he had a good view
of the office, everyone else going out.
Burris in due time entered, but did not
bite at the bait set for him. A consulta
tion was held as to the next best mode of
procedure and it was decided that Mr.
McKown should accuse Burri9 of the
theft. This he did yesterday afternoon,
and Mr. McKown says that Burris at first
hesitated when confronted with the ac
cusation, but finally paid ever the dollar
Burris sttes that he is innocent and
that he gave McKown the do.lar in order
to settle the matter so that it would not
reach the ears of the postmaster.
Postmaster Wells says he wilj investi
gate the matter thoroughly and lay all
the facte before the postoffice department.
In the meantime Substitute Cary is
carrying Burris' route.
Billy Catton, the billiard player, is
home from the great tournament in Chi
cago. There is to be a grand exhibition
game at Davenport Fridsy evening of
this week. Schafer, Carter, Ives and
Catton will participate. The Piute club
has taken the matter in hand and reserved
100" seats for ladies in the Grand opera
house, where it is to occur. It will be an
elaborate and brilliant affair in all re
spects. Aside from the fact that the
four greatest players in the world are to
be present, the best class of people in the
three cities will attend. Seats will be
on sale in Rock Island at Thorn as' drug

THE DEAD LEADERS
Sorrow for the Late Heroes of the
Hrr4 lfMt Adepts ea4rial RrM
latt h t lira. Nhernaa aaa
' Admiral Porter.
At last night's meeting of Buford Pest
243. G. A. R , a committee composed of
Comrade E. II. Buck. G. W. Que and

resolutions relative to tbe death of
GEN . W. T SHERMAN
ani the stme were unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we mingle our grief
with tbat of the nation in mourning tbe
loss of her great general. Gn. W. T.
Sherman, and we hereby desire to record
tbe high appreciation in which the Amer
ican people held in love and esteem tte
character and services of Gen. Sherman,
as One of the greatest so dieis and grand
est patriot ibis country has ever pro
duced. Ciifted as be was with a marve ous
perception and power of concentration,
cautious yet fearless in execution, never
forgetiul of the comfort and safety of bis
followers, he won by such qualifications
the confidence tnd iove of bis men, in
spired with which, under the flig he never
failed to salute, victory after victory was
added to our arms and established forever
in history these monuments to his bril
liant and wonderful abilities.
Pre eminently above all others was his
dot m ant trait of character, "Love of
country and his fellow men." The key
note of whatever he sa;d or wrote on the
eubject wis a simple and fervid expres
sion of love of country and pride "in the
institutioc s of the United States. No one
ever sneered at his utterances or accused
him of insincerity . But every one felt
that Gen. Sherman was a brave, earnest
and true man. It was this trait of bis
character that tendered to soften the rug
ged and rt solute nature, and made him
idcl zed among the old soldiers in the post
rooms, at tbe erjcamj men to, camp fires,
or parade. To look upon his face or to
hear his nt me mentioned, was to have our
love of country intensive 1.
Resolved, That we extend to the family
of our beloved comrade, Gen. Sherman,
our heartfelt sympathy and condolence in
this hour cf rheir affliction.
Resolved. Tbat a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon tbe memorial record
of this post.
The samecommlttee reported these res
olutions concerning the late
which likewise were adopted unani
mously: Resolved, Tbat his services in the navy
and on vtssls of war, were wide an
varied. He was richly endowed by na
ture and training to psrform ttse import
ant duties devolving upon bim in his pro
fession, a nan of wonderful nerve, en
durance and perseverance, and to the last
minute used his force of mind and person
to accomplish that which he knew to be
for the good of this great country, to
which he as an ever faithful, self-sacris
ficing and devoted servant.
Resolved, That in the death of Admirsl
Porter the nation sustains the loss of an
illustrious patriot act oefender.
Resolved. That we extend to the fam
ily of nurdwased comrade, Admiral Por
ter, our coadolence in their great afDici
Resolve.1. Tbat a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon the memorial record
of this post .
The appended resolution of thanks
with reference to the recent
was also adopted:
Resolved. That we hereby record our
appreciation, with thaDks, to the First
Methodist Elpiscopal church and pastor,
Rev. G. W. Gue, for tbeir fcindiy consid
eration in providing for an invitation to
this post to attend the memorial service
of Gen. She-man on Sunday eveniug, Feb.
22. the discourse by Rev. TJ. W. Gue
being a mos: able and appropriate one,
and with the song service especially ren
dered for the occasion, was an elegant
tribute to the memory of the late Gen.
W. T. Sherman.
