Operations were begun this morning on
Moline's paving contract, on Third ave

people of Rock Island will be, does the
council of this city propose to permit the

delay operations until it is too late to
complete it in a season and thus allow
Moline to get ahead as Davenport did
last year in consequence of tbe delay on

PoitTLASD, Ore., April 29 A few days
ag an interview with Gov. Pennoyer was
seiit out from here in which that gentle
nu n was made to say he would not go to
the state line to meet Presidant Harrison:
thi.t official etiquette, would require that
he should remain at tbe state capital,
where President Harrison if he desired to
nieit him, could call on him. The gov
ernor bas give the following for publica
tion: The Statement Imperfect.
"The interview relative to my reception
of President Harrison in Oregon as pub
lished in the press reports was an imper
fect statement of a private conversation
wit i a member and an ex-member of tbe
Oregon legislature, and was not intended
for publication. While I insist, with all
deftrence to the opinions of others, that
my proper place to receive the president
is at the state capitol, and not the state
line, where he will be met by a legislative
committee, yet I concede that ir I had au
tboiized the interview as published I
would be liable to censure, which under
the true state cf affairs is unmerited."

PEsTn. April 23. Maresin Gilezan, a
farm hand, has been arrested for killing
Josepha Kirsch, a rich woman near here
who was found dead in bed Sunday, bav
iug been strangled. Gilezan confessed to
killing the woman, but produced a letter
in which she said that she had decided to
die on acco nnt of disappoi ntment in love
aud other reasons, and besought him to
kill her, as on two previous occasions her
attempts to suicide had failed. She would
provide a quart of whisky with which he
could nerve himself to the deed, and
would place two florins where he could
get them after the work was done. He
carried out the instructions, and choked
the woman to death, after tying her
hands aud feet as she directed. There U
no doubt of the genuineness of the letter.
Gilezan seems to br of weak mind.
