The Openins Meeting lat Evening
Hfrmon by Rfv. H. H. Painter
Tbe first eee6ion of the Rock river pres
bytery was held at the Cenfal Presby
terian church last evening. It was
opened with singing by the choir, after
which Rev. T. R. Johnson, of EJgington,
read the 72d paslm, which was followed
by praver by Rev. Thomas Stephenson,
of Woodhull. This was fallowed by
singing by tbe choir, after which Rev. S.
S. Palmer, of Sterling, delivered a very
able sermon, taking as his text Romans,
I am debter, both to the Greeks and to the Bar
barians; both to the wise and the unwise.
His sermon was full of good thoughts,
showine that we should have kindly con
sideration for those around us, and call
ing his hearers' attention to the example
of tbe good Samaritan and saying it was
the gospel of Christ, and that the strong
should protect the weak, and that the
church should be a light in the darkness.
That we should never let any person, die
in sin, and in closing be exhorted his
hearers to say that as far as in their
power they would discharge the duties
imposed upon them by the gospel of
Christ. This was followed by singitg
by the choir and prayer by Rev. Kerr,
after which the roll was called and Rev.
C. W. Anthony, of Franklin Grove, was
elected to succeed Rev. Kerr, the retiring
moderator, and Rev. S. S. Palmer, cf
Sterling, as temporary clerk, after which
an adjournment was taken till this morn

A Moline moulder named Anderson
stood on the railroad track at the foot of
Seventeenth street yesterday afternoon
just as a train approached, and Clenun
Mougin, the old flagman, called his at
tention to his danger. Anderson, how
ever, was just "full" enough to be ugly
and he returned evil for good by abusing
the flagman. The latter then pushed
him from tbe track. Anderson then at
tacked Mougin with a stick, and the flag
man reunited with his flag stick. The
moulder was the stronger, however, and
soon had tbe flagman down, but
at this jjneture Comstock, the
wrestler, came along and grasping the
moulder by the neck and heels he tossed
nim down the river bank. When he re
covered himself he was sober and had
forgotten all about fighting entirely.

Talkn of an IovIn More.
The brick work at the syndicate power
station was completed yesterday by Con
tractor Murdock, and two of the engines
were run during the day as a test and
proved very satisfactory. W. Phenix,
superintendent of the Hazelton Boiler
company, arrived from 8t. Louis to in
spect the boilers. The first cars will fun
by electricity the first of the week.
Managing Director D. H Louderback
of the syndicate system, and also of the
Rock Island & Milan railroad, was seen
this morning with reference to the rumor
of his contemplated change in tbe pres
ent route of the latter road in this city,
that is, abandoning the present line from
First avenue and Seventeenth street to
Seventh avenue and Eleventh street, and
seeking rights to construct a line from the
corner of the latter street and Seventh
avenue due north to Fourth avenue, and
thence follow the syndicate track east to
Fifteenth north to Third and over the
bridge line tracks to Nineteenth and
oyer the Elm street branch track to Sec
ond avenue, forming a loop around tbe
Harper house corner and following the
Second avenue tracks back to Eleventh
street. Mr. Louderback stated that he
had contemplated such an arrangement,
and it was not unlikely that he would
seek from the council the necessary priv
ileges to make it.
The idea, however, does not appear to
be a popular one, as the proposed
change would involve the abandonment
of the present track on Seventeenth street
and Seventh avenue to Eleventh, and
the city be deprived of facilities which
would nor be met by the trackage sup
plied. The Rock Island council has al
ways been friendly toward the syndicate
in the past and probably will bs in
the future, where reasonable riahts
are asked for. Indeed, Rock Island has
shown a spirit of encouragement to
the Chicago capitalists that has
not been characteristic of either
Davenport or Moline, and so far it has
no occasion to regret its literal public
policy toward these enterprising gentle
men, but there is a wide difference to
ward extending the street railway ad
vantages of a city and curtailing them.
