Sealed Proposals for Sites Invited
by Secretary Foster.
The Ktipalationx of the Formal A-
vertlaeaneat Begin to l.oek Like
Elsewhere in today's Argcs appears a
formal advertisement signed by Secretary
of the Treasurer Poster, for sealed pro
posals to be opened April 7, next, for the
Bale to the United States of suitable pro
perty, "centrally and conveniently located,
for a site for the public building author
ized by act of congress approved Dec .
14, 1890 and March 3, 1891. to be erected
at Rock Island, HI."
The bill provides for a corner lot ap
proximating 150 feet front by 130 feet in
dimensions, or, if not a corner lot the
property it is required must approximate
180 feet by 120 feet in dimensions; the
180 feet to be street frontage. Any pros
perty accepted must be vacated within
30 days after formal notice.
It is to be inferred from this that Rock
Island will have its public building with
out unnecessary delay probably the
coming summer will witness its com
mencement at least. As is known, the
appropriation is for $75,000.
It is quite probab'e that the city has al
ready been quietly canvassed by represen
tatives of the department at Washington,
as has been the case in other cities where
public buildings have deen provide 1 for,
and that the authorities at Washington
are in possession of the facts pertaining
to each site suggested.
MINNIE KING'S MOTHER.
In Despair Over Her Daughter's Way
warttnees She Hai Her Arretted.
Last Friday evening Mrs. King ap
peared at the police headquarters at Mo
line, and asked that the officers arrest her
daughter. Minnie. The Moline police
telephoned the request to the Davenport
officers. Mrs. Kinc charges that her
daughter, who is about 17 year6 of age,
is of loose moral character, and that for
several days she has been in a place of
questionable repute, in the El Dorado
building in Davenport. The mother is
almost heartbroken . When in the past
the father has had the girl arrested for
street walking, the mother has nearly al-
ways interceded in her daughter's behalf
with the hope that she would be re
claimed, but the girl has continued on
her downward course.
A number of women were arrested in
Davenport, but irquiry by telephone re
vealed the fact that nearly all gave ficti
tious names, and so it is impossible at
present to ascertain whether Minnie
King was axaone them. Minnie, says
the Journal, has a rather pretty face, is
large for her age, and is of a jolly tem
perament, but she has allowed herself to
be led astray by bad associations.
Lightning; Rod Swindle.
News comes from the upper end of the
county of the successful swindling opera
tions of a smooth-tongued lghtiing rod
agent. William Begier, of Coe township,
whose address is Port Eyron, was visited
by one of these gentlemen several days
ago. and was assured that he could be
fitted out with a supply of rods that
would defy the powers of Jove till the
end of time for about $12. In ordtr to
make the outfit cheap to him be would
"throw in" a number of points free. In
his oily manner it is said he succeeded in
getting Mr. Begier to sign a note ia pay -
ment, and now Mr. Bsgier is notified from
the bank that he has a note for $300 to
meet. A neighbor of Mr. Begier's was
similarly swindled. He is not taken in
quite so badly, as his notification from
the bank is that he owes $200
Here's a Pretty Met.su
Misery likes company. A Burlington
official told an Express reporter at Au
rora that the Milwaukee road is in worse
shape than the Burlington; that it owes
nearly $200,000 for coal consumed by its
engines alone, while its track rent on
other roads has not been paid for month?.
He says the Banta Fe is almost on itslaBt
bearings, while the Monoa system had to
have a receiver. No wonder the great
systems are mercilessly slashing right and
left to reduce operating expenses. The
Rock Island is perhaps not bo badly off
as any of the roads named, yet its earn
ing9 are not at all what stockholders
would wish, and in this view of the caee
it is said that considerable significance
may be attached to that visit to Rock
Island of prominent officials yesterday.
If such it is, local employes may await
developments in fear and trembling.
Modern Woodmen Trouble.
D. S. Maltby, one of Root's deputies
in the M. W. A., has sued the order of
Modern Woodmen of America for $7,500,
presumably foi pay for an unexpired con
tract. Last week, on the strength of thia
suit, a United States marshal served aa
attachment on Head Banker Zink. and
also on the bank at Grand Island, Neb.,
where the funds are deposited. This at
tachment was issued by a United States
iudge at Omaha, and is answerable to
day. It is understood furthermore that
the head officers of the Woodmen are in
a row with the publishers of the official
organ of the order and are likely to thiow
np their: entire contract with the pub
The Craae of Ball at the Kink taatnr-
day EveningThe Contending Nine
and the Ret alt.
; The very inclement weather of Satur
day evening did sot keep the lovers of
base ball front witnessing the first of a
series of indoor base ball games which
are being arranged to be played at the
rink. A large number of ladies were
present who took great interest in the
games and the game bids fair to become
very popular among both sexes. The
first game was between the Kemper Hall
nine of Daven port and the Rock Island
High school nine composed as follows:
KKtrKR HA IX. '
Tredway,lh;B .-ckwith,c; boakland.p; Young,
ss, Hneenfield,2t: Poisom. 3b; Gardner, If; Mc
cormick, rf ; Uriflttn, ef.
Kenworthy, lb: Taylor, p; Hill c: Olson, ss;
Bladel, 2b; Long, 3b; White If; deal, cf; Staf
Though it took some time for the boys
to get in good playing order they warmed
to their work and in a short time they
were showing many of the fine points of
the game wtich was very interesting
throughout and particularly so in the sixth
and seventh innings where only one man
got to base, and he was nipped in at
tcmotine to steal third. A number of
bases were neatly stolen by both sides
and meriting hi arty applause. The game
resulted in a sore of 10 to 15 in favor of
the High school. The second game was
a five inning gt. me and was won by the
Kemper hall niae by n score of 3 to 2.
Finally a picked nine of the spectators
challenged the High schools and consid
erable amusement was afforded by some
of the picked nine whose bands had lost
their cunning at base ball, but who did
well considering that they had not prac
ticed at the game.
To Lire In St. Paul.
Fred Weyerhauser, the great luo-ber
king of the northwest, has rented the
residence of Mts. Culbertson on Summit
avenue, and will very soon remove trom
Rock Island, where he has lived for the
last thirty years, to make what he hopes
and believes will be his permanent resi
dence in St. I'aul. Mr. Weyerhauser
and family will be a very welcome ac
quisition to the social and business cir
cles of St. Paul. This gentleman is at
the head of b. powerful combination
which owns over a million acres of pine
lands in northen Wisconsin and north
ern Minnesota, and he practically con
trols the lumber business of the Norths
west. Without attaching any other sig
nificance to his tiling his residence at Si.
Paul than its convenience for that pur
pose resnlting from its central location
with reference t bis great lumber inter
ests in Northern Wisconsin and Northern
Minnesota, it Is uafe to infer that the same
advantage of loc ation may exercise an
important influence in controlling some
other business airangements and in giving
them a direction which will be highly
beneficial to St. Paul. St. Paul Pioneer
Mr. Weyerhauser, it may be said in ex
planation of the above, has arranged to
build and operate a lumber mill at Brain
ard, Minn., and it is the desirability to
have his family rear him that has induced
him to lease a he me in St. Paul There
the family will reside In the summer
season, while it is likely that Rock Island
will continue to be their winter home.
Mrs. Weyerhauser and the Misses Weyer
hauser will leave for St. Paul about April
1, but the Messrs. John, Charles and
Rudolph will remain in Rock Island to
look after the buitiness interests here.
A suit for $50 damages brought by
Abraham K. Jonts against Robert Young
was tried in Justice Wivill'a court Satur
day afternoon, before a jury composed of
John Cleland, Fred Schindler, George
Foster, James Ryan, George Wagner and
Anton Ackerman . The -jury after being
out over two hot rs failed to agree and
were accordingly discharged by Justice
Wivill and the caEe set for a reheating on
March 13- Maj. Beardsley appeared for
the plaintiff and ftearle & Senile for the
defense. The fa;t3 brought out by the
evidence are substantially as follows
Abraham K.Jones leased a farm from
Mrs. Culligan from March 1, 1890. to
March 1, 1891, an 1 Robert Young leased
the same farm from March 1, 1891, to
March 1, 1892. About the first of De
cember, last. Young went upon the farm
without permission from Jones, and
plowed under about 25 acres of pastur
age and corn stocks which Jones valued
at $50 and for which he asks that cmouot
LiOUib uaiwtuer elsewhere announces
himself as a candidate for township col
lector subject to the action of the demo
cratic city-township convention. Mr,
Ohlweiler has many staunch friends who
will bt delighted ti contribute their sup
port to his candidt cy.
Wm. Eckermanu has a card elsewhere
formally announcing his candidacy for
the office of township collector. Mr
Eckermann is very popular, his record as
a faithful mail carrier having won him the
friendship of many of our people, and he
would make an excellent collector.

THE REDUCED FUNDS.
HW the Arsenal Appropriation
Were Blahd Witheat a Word of
laterfereaee r'rona Mr. Gent.
The Union of yesterday morniog makes
a very brave effort to show that the ap
propriations passed by tie late congress
for Rock Wand arsenal were not less I
than the usual amounts for such purposes.
Here are the only appropriations' made
for Rock Island arsenal at the last ses
sion of congress.
Machinery and hop fixtures, 13.000.
General care ana preservation of Improvement-,
care of water pow r, painting and care of
permanent buildings, bridgea and stores on island.
building fence and (ewers, grading grounds, $15,-
Care and preservation and cxpente of operating
draw of bridge, $12,000.
- Repair of draw span atd machinery for opera
ting, $1,950. IS.
Protecting Kock Island bridge by sheer boons.
Take a glance at the above figures and
then at these of the preceding congress
for the fiscal year, commencing July 1,
1890, and ending June 31, 1891:
Completing hop K. J10 000.
Machinery and eQop fixtures, $ 10,0 0.
Uenerai care and preservation of improvements
Extension arsenal railway. $7,000.
Government water power pool, S110.0CO.
Rock island bridge, operating oraw, tl2 000.
Protecting bridge, $ 750.
replacing tn present wooden uppers with
wrought iron and other work en ths bridge, t:.-
Uf go back two years and look at the
appropriations for the year commencing
July 1, 1889, and ending June 1, lS'JO;
Machinery and shop fixtures. $10 000.
Completing storehou-e K, S. 10,000.
General care and preservation of Imnrjve-
lilt. II 10, cic.,9,uinj.
Necessary repairing, etc.. $35,000.
Construct on, etc.. $ IV 000.
Operating draw of Rock Island bridge, ll,5j0.
iuuipieuniE oraw pier, aj? auo.
steer booms, $1,960.
A comparison of these figures present
the strongest argument that can be made
regarding the failure of the late congress
man to do his duty during his last term
of office. That he failed utterly, either
through indifference or through the
stronger influence of .Benet, it matters
not. Be d;d not accomplish what he
should have accomplished or what it was
reported during the campaign that he
had accomplished, that is certain.
Ilr. cewden'N Will.
The will of the late Dr. J. W. Cowden
was admitted to probate Saturday after
noon. It was dated Dec 12.1882, and was
witnessed by W, H. Marshal; and Chas.
E. Fisher, and names his daughter Rhoda
and son James as executrix and executor,
respectively. It states as his wish that
after the debts of bis estate are paid that
his children should remain together; that
each shall receive a classical education
which shall be paid out of the estate as
common fund, and that all shall be sup
ponei wnetner at school or at home out
of the eEtate; thus the estate thall be
kept in money as much as possible, which
shall bs loaned out on real estate security,
double the amount of the loan, and when
the youngest child becomes of age the
estate shall be divided equity.
