THE RIGHT SPIRIT.
The Froper Course to Pursue
Which of the Three Cities Has Known
the SIoKt Liberal roliryio This
Fartirnlar The Street
The Davenport papers are freely con -detuning
the exacting attitude of tbe Mo
line citj council toward the Holmes syn
dicate and advancing some wholesome
truths as to how cities should extend en
couragement to outside capital seeking
investment, arid in citing the at
titude of the Moline council in making
unreasonable demands of the Chicago
street railway syndicate, the Democrat of
Tuesday evening states that the Rock
Island municipal assembly had displayed
an unfriendly spirit toward the street car
people, who were threatening to pull up
their tracks and get out of the city The
assertion was evidently intended to ap
ply to Moline, for the accusation as ap
plied to Rock Island is not only ill
founded, but the city has if anything dis
tinguished itself in its friendliness
to outside capital, and the
street railway people in particular. If
there is anything that the Chicago capi
talists have ever asked of Rock Island
that hs not been promptly extended
them, The Argcs would like to be in
formed as to it, and the same spirit has
been manifest with reference to all kinds
of enterprises seeking to avail themselves
of our advantages as a community, by lo
The Davenport papers are qaite right
in condemning the narrow-minded policy
pursued in Moline, but did not the Dav
enport council impose certain require
ments before the Chicago syndicate was
permitted to extend its lines over there?
Were not the franchises actually
sold to them by the council at a stipu
lated price? The Akgtjs is glad to learn,
however, that the Dd van port people are
awakening to a proper sense of realiza
tion of what becomes an ambitious en
terprising city . Rock Island instead of
giving the street railway syndicate
cause to tear up its tracks
displayed a friendly hospitality, which
members of tbe syndicate commented
upon at tbe time as characteristic of few
other cities. Tnis city set an example
too, which while neighboring cities failed
to observe at the time, Davenport at
least seems disposed to follow now that
the syndi:ate has paid into the coffers of
that city tbe amount for which its enter
prise was taxed in p oviding advantages
such as have so far proven unprofitable.
The proper idea is to welcome and en
courage foreign capital, and not only to
extend every inducement possible, but
make it an object for it to seek invest
ment rather than to embarrass it with un
necessary burdens, as Moline has done in
That HrrrlnK Cae.
On the trial of the case of tbe city of
Moline against Al Gould for rssistirii? an
officer, several of the business men on
Fifteenth street who witnessed tbe trans
action testified to the circumstances as
heretofore given. Far the defense M.
A. Gould claimed that there had been an
animosity existing between the police of
ficers and the members of hi) family for
several years. He also claimed harsh
words and treatment of the officers to
ward Al and his brother George inside
tbe station just after tbe arrest. At the
conclusion of the testimony the ccse was
submitted to the jury without argument.
After a short time the jury returned a
verdict finding the defendant guilty and
assessing bis fine at $10
The costs amount to $14.55, and, with
the fine added, to $ 24. 5. As the Dis
patch rf mirks, rather an exhorbitant
price to pay for the temporary use of a
WHglnnK the Mail.
Beginning with the :0th of this month
and continuing until tbe 3d of May, all
tbe mail carried upon any railway line in
the United Statts is to be weighed. This
work is done every four years, and the
weights thus obtained furnish the basis
for the compensation paid each railway
by the government on mail carrying con
tracts. On all tbe important lines a
special weigher is appointed, who re
ceives $3 per day for his services. Upon
tbe smaller lines, the postal clerk may be
required to weigh the mails in addition
to his regular services. Tbe appoint
ments are made bv the general superin
tendent of the railway mail service, upon
the recommendation, of course, of con
gressmen or local politicians.

There is a new girl in town. She ar

Nrkrnr la Peoria What He Prom,
laen to Do.
Prof. P nnock, of the electric motor, is
in Peoria ngain. He intends to make
that city his headquarters and will stay
there until be demonstrates that it is pos
sible to rut electric lights, street carp,
threshing machines, policemen, river
crafts and all other machinery by electri
city. Mr. Pennock would have been
ready ere tiis, but he foutd on investiga
tion that in shipping his boxes some of
them leake 1, and he has been obliged to
wait until they were repaired. It is not
necessary to have a dynamo to produce
all of the results that are now possible by
the steam engine. Savs the Journal:
We have great faith in Mr. Pennock
and we are glad that he has settled down
among us and is going to test bis new in
vention here and n w. It is, perhaps, a
good thing that he has for tbe moment
abandoned the motor car and will give bis
whole attention to the electric lights. The
revolution 'vbich he has inaugurated is
so great tht.t it is not well to undertake
too many things at once. After he gets
bis electric light well under way and per
manently established then he can go
ahead with his notor. Mr. Pennock is
very enthusiastic himself, very deter
mined and very much in earnest. We
pat him on tbe back and bid him God
speed. It ih a pleasure to us to find an
undoubted Renins, such as he is, strug
gling in tbe mud; it gives us an oppor
tunity to pick him up, pat him on the
back, set his face towards Zion and help
him on with the good work. It is with
this sentiment that we take 00 strong an
interest in tbe work which Mr. Pennock
Tomorrow evening Aiden BeBt diet's
"Fabio Romani" company is to appear at
Harper's tbe tre with a strong cast and
elaborate scenic properties. The Chica
go Post says of the production:
In the cruel story of "The Vendetta"
there is much that is dramatic. The mo
tiveof revenge is fiendish in its vindict-
iveness. 'Fubio Romani-' follows the
story with considerable fidelity. The
burial of Fab o Romani alive, his recov
ery in the ton.b, his e-cape and return
to home, where he discovers that his wife
is false with Lis best friend, the subse
quern killing of that friend and bis mar
riage with his own wife under another
Dame, and the takinsr of her to tbe to mo
where be htd suffered and where
sue is left to go road were all
represented. Tbe dramatization, though
unnecessarily talky, is forceful in general.
Walter Lawrence's impersonation - of the
revengeful Fa 010 Romani, was a very fair
representation of the part. , A rather re
markable piece of acting was done by
Unarles u rtrwe 1, as Kespetti. a rag
picker. It was highly artistic. So was
tbe impersonation of tbe bag. Mother
Biscardi, by Bliss Addie Far well. These
two people have an aptitu.le for charac
ter delineatioa altogether rare. The
Guido Ferrari of Join Fy Palmer was
particularly effective. Miss Frances
Field gave to tbe character of Nina con
siderable earntstness. Her scene in the
tomb in the hat act was quite strong

Mr. Ellen Beardaley-Batia.
The many friends of Mrs. Ellen Baa-
tin, wife of Prof. S. Bastin, will be
pained to learn of her death in Chicago,
March 15, of pteumonia, af'er a brief
illness. As2Il;n Beardsley in her t1
hood she was well known to many peo
pie in Rock Island. Her father. Judge
Beardsley, was ti prominent lawyer of the
early bar of this city, where he resided.
Mrs. Bastin was for some years promi
nent as a teacher in the public schools of
Chicago, and of late years had attained a
national reputati on as a geologist. Her
paper on the geology of tbe country
around Chicago was lately published in
Harper's Magazine, and gave her great
distinction in the 'scientiCc world.
