The Vote is Repretiewtailve.
Buffalo Prairie, March 2. Editor
Argtb; 1 see that a certain editor in
order to bolrter up a counterfeit claim of
exertinggreat influence in political mat
ters hereabouts, states that John A. Wil
son received more votes in Rock Island
county for the legislature than did
George W. Vinton. My recollection of
the returns as I read them in The Argus
at the tiire, is that Mr. Vinton received
some 3,000 more votes than did Mr. Wil
son in this county. Is my memory de
fective or were your election figures
wrong, or is the notorious prevaricator
distorting the truth as U9ual? He claims
Wilson received 134 more votes in Rock
Island county than Vinton.
The Argus published the official vote
on representatives at the time it was
canvassed, but for the information of our
correspondent and others who may be
misled by false statements emanating
from the source above a. 1 tided to, we re
produce them below:
Mr. Vinton received 2.866 votes in
excess of Mr. Wilson in Rock Island, and ,

A NEW FERRY FRANCHISE.
Vol. Stewart 8eekin 0e Before the
County Board The Acttam There
a. The chief business of importance be
fore the county board thus far has been the
action on a petition of Col. S. N. Stewart,
of St. Joe, Mo., for a ferry franchise be
tween Rock Island and Davenport, Col.
Stewart having been granted that right
by the Scott county board recently, and
he now seeks the same privilege here,
representing that the rates of fare both for
passengers and freight will be about
are half what is now charged, whir.h
would put the passenger rate at two and
one-half cents, or five cents for the round
trip. The petition was yesterday re
ferred to the committee on roads and
bridges, composed of Supervisors Carey,
Ford and Hofer, and this moraine a re
port was brought in, in favor of granting
the petition, but upon motion of. Super
visor Burrali it was laid over until this
afternoon for consideration.
This afternoon E. D. Sweeney ap-
peared before the board on behalf of the
Rock Island & Davenport Ferry corns
pany, and raised a question as to the
right of the board to grant a franchise to
another company when the city ot Rock
Island had a'ready granted an
exclusive franchise. The coun
ty had no ri:jht Jto interfere with the
city's rights' the law viewing it much
the same as ft would the continuation of
Col. Stewart held that the county did
have a right to grant the privileges sought
and it was merely a question of con
struction of law. He proposed to seek
tbe franchise from the city after he had
secured it from the county.
Capt. Robinson also spoke in behalf
of tne ferry company, holding that be
had been importuned by friends to be
present and that he had no fears of the
result of competition.
During the speeches, some rather
spirited epithets were exchanged between
Mr. Sweeney and Col, Stewart.
At length tbe matter was upon raolion
laid over until tomorrow morning with
a resolution that the state's attorney be
present t-y advise the hoard as to the
The Argcs, while having no com
plaints to make of the present ferry, can
Bee no reason why an improved service
should be barred, or why the present
company should have a franchise to the
excius'on of others giving us assurances
of better facilities.
A Brilliant Entertainment Premiaed
ai tbe Theatre Teaiaht.
Miss Margaret Mather appears at Har
per's theatre tonight in "Leah the For
saken." Miss Mather and her superior
company presented "Romeo and Juliet''
at the Burtis at Davenport last evening
and the Democrat of this morning thus
pays tribute to her interpretation of the
role of Juliet:
Miss Margaret Mather, a.1 Warn a fflvnr-
ite, gave her delightful impersonation of
Juliet last night before a critical but ap
proving audience. Numerically, the audi
ence was a large one for the Lenten sea
son, though not near so large as the one
that greated Miss Mather the last time she
won uerc. mis was uniortunate. too, for
the Juliet of this talented
in strength and beauty as the years pass
by. One of Shakespeare best drawn
characters is this fair Italian girl, and the
purpose of the dramatist finds a cor
rect and conscientious interpretation in
word and action by Miss Mather. It has
been truly said that "although Romeo
and Juliet are in love they are not love
sick." In Twelfth Night 8hakeepeare
pictures a wan girl dying of love, 'who
pined in thought, and with a green and
yellow melancholy." but in Juliet he por
trays the enthusiasm, passion and hero
ism of a young girl's love. The charac
ter as taken last nigh, always strikes a
responsive chord in the heart of the lis
tener. Otis Skinner scored a hit as Ro
meo, and the rest of the support was

f Ijareeay and the Accused Carrier
Henry E. Burris, tbe colored mail car
rier accused of tbe larceny of a dollar
from the desk in Frizer's coal office, has
been exonerated by his accuser. JE. B.
McKown, who this morning gave Burris
back the dollar received from him
and acknowledged that he had
done him an injustice, and had
very wrongly accused him of theft. Post
master Wells at once telegraphed to
Washington that the charges against
Burris had been retracted and that he had
reinstated him. Burris lis therefore on
duty as a mail carrier again.
Chris. Limberg the old employe of Mr.
Frazer who was the first to suspect Bur
ns, was seen this afternoon and expressed
himself as greatly surprised at Mr. Mc,
Kown'a retraction. He is inclined to
think that Burris' exoneration is a reflec
tion on his honesty, as the dollar is miss

How Thry I it tn London
John Georje, the former citizen of
Rock Island and Davenport, who went
back to his native country. England, two
years ago to Bpand tbe remainder of his
days, has written the Democrat an arti
cle on the various modes employed in
pavement cleaning ia London. Hi
would like to see the horse broom given a
trial on the etreets. This machine is
used in London and an operator of one
of them told Mr. George that it would do
as much work as 60 men . This is the
way Mr. Gi-orge describes the horse
"It is made to revolve, say from the
right fore corner to the left hind-corner
of tbe frame and tbe (lush leaves the
broom mostly before the wheel. The
broom will last for a year or more and
tbe men can refill the frame of the wheel,
when, like the Phoenix, it baa a renewed
existence. It can be so adjusted as to
sweep heavily or lightly, wet or dry, mud
or duEt, macadam or pounded road,
street or aiey. up hill or on
a level. After a rain it is very
effective, and it would clean up
tbe Davenport streets before breakfast.
If a town is kt pt clean there will not be
any dust to turn to mud and so mud to
turn to dust. I have seen in the London
streets another smalt but uwful contriv
ance for elearieg the track of the street
railroad. It is an iron pan' something
like a scoop ami something like a coal
scuttle. It has a piece of iron attached
like the blade of a table knife to go down
inside the raiV and as a. man slides it
along the rail ty a long handle the dirf
runs up into the pan. It doesn't seem to
run heavily, as the men walk along brisk-
