THJfi AllGUS, SATUKDAY. MAY.. 30.' 1891
All silk surthi, ia all colors, were told
last Friday, by J. II. C Petenen'a Sons
Davenport dry goods merchants, for 10
cents a yard.
Who ttsys Rock Island hasn't got a
street car system to be proud of? Mr.
Louderback's care-worn features actually
gave way to a smile today.
Rev. R. F. Sweet, rector of Trinity
church, will conduct the services in Christ
church, Moline, tomorrow morning, and
Rev. Berry, of Davenport cathedral, will
conduct the morning services at Trinity.
A great deal has been said of late
complimentary to John Looncy who suc
ceeded in obtaining the pardon of Brad
shaw from Governor Fifer. Mr. Looney
is one of the youngest members of the
Rock Island county bar, and his earnest
ness, ability and knowlege of the law have
already placed him among the rising at
torneys of the county.
The fire alarm from the Fourth ward
this afternoon at 2 o'clock was from a
barn in the rear of Henry Dart's Sons
wholesale house, a corner of the barn be
ing on fire, which it is supposed was
caused by some boys who had been seen
playing in the alley a little while before.
The burning of a little straw at the cor
ner of the barn was aH the damage that
Ia the Y. M. C. A. rooms tomorrow
Rev. G.'W. Gue begins a series of four
lectures. The first will be "The Christian
Young Man in Business " Second, "The
Christian Young Man in the Home.''
Third, "The Christian Young Man in the
Church." Fourth, "Young Men and
Moral Impurity ." The last one will be
general and an address on the corruption
of young men of today.
Rev. R. F. Sweet, rector of Trinity
church, returned this morning from a
visit to Milwaukee, Chicago, Galesburg
and Knoxyille. At the latter city yester
day he attended a naeeticg of the diocesan
committee of the diocese of Quincy, of
which he is a member, to pass upon the
election of Rev. Phillips Brooks. Episco
pal bishop-elect of Massachusetts. The
committee by unanimous vote sent its
diiapprovs.1 of Dr. Brooks' confirmation,
the opposition being occasioned ny the
bishop-elect's expressed views as to the
doctrines of the church.
The vse for court house square, selec
ted by Mrs. S. B. Cobb was put in plase
immediately north of tLe monument last
night, under the direction of Judge Lu
cian Adams, who, in accordance with
Mrs. Cobb's wishes, selected the beauti
ful ornament from samples furnished by
the J. L. Mott Iron works, of Chicago.
The vase is a lovely design, is a great
credit to the generou9-hearted donor,
and will no doubt lead to ' other orna
meats to court house square who knows
but a new court house among the
rest? The baee was nicely carved at the
McGee Granite work3, and the flowers
famished by John Supp.
Manager Louderback, of the fctreet rail
way system, believes in neatness if not
s'yle. lie was standing at Seventeenth
street and Second avenue this afternoon,
watching the operation of both the Mo
line and Milan lines, when on one of the
trailers of the Moline cars was a conduc
tor without a coat. The manager called
the conductor's attention to the deficiency
in his toilet and told hirn not to let it or.
cur again. Then turning to a bystander
he remarked: "If the people think
enough of our service to patronize us, we
should think enough of them to insist
that our employes be attentive both as to
their appearance and conduct."
The Davenport Jfc Rock Island aud
Rock Island fc Milan street railway com
panies, of which D. II. Louderback is
general manager, have decided that no
more track will be built or operated, that
does not pay actual expenses now. Mr.
Louderback has found that the three
miles of tram rail which be must replace
with Johnston rail in order to operate
electric cars, will not bring over f 300 a
mile, and be is is not disposed therefore to
rebuild track where the income does not
warrant it. As to the extension of the
Rock Island & Milan road beyond tie
Watch tower junction, Mr. Louderback
states that he will not think of operating
it with horses and unless the outlook is
better than it now is, he would not reUy
it for electric cars, even were the city to
give him the right to, as it has not
yet done. The loss of the street railway
to Milan wgyld be sincerely regretted by
everybody in Rock Island, and it is to be
boped that sufficient inducements may
be offered the company to lead it to
operate this branch of the road.

Sensation in Parliament.
Sir John's condition has created a gret
seusation in political circles. As soon as
it tecanie known the house adjourned. In
moving adjournment Sir Hector Ijtngciu
said he had just received news that the
first minister had a relapse, and could not

Career of a Ilrilllaiit Man.
The Rt. Hon. Sir. John Alexander Mac
Donald, premier of the Dominion of
Canada, was Ik ira in Ulasgow, Scotland,
of Scotch parents in 1S15. Five years later
his pa rents emigrated to Canada aud set tied
in Kingston. The family, after living
there for four years, moved to the Bay !
QuinTe. leaving John Alexander, then in
his loth year, at school in Kingston. The
city offered many inducements then in the
way of excellent schools and churches, le
sides sixial advantages not existing iu
other parts of Canada.

The lad was placed at the Royal gram
mar school under the tuition of Dr. Wil
son, a fellow ol Oxford university. Those
who remeniliT Macdonald in l.i school
days descri'ie him as having "a very intcl
liiient and pleading face, strange, fiijzy
looking hair that curled in a dark mass."
These characteristics he retains to the
present day. After he had entered his
Pith year his father took him away from
school and articled him in t lie office of
George Mackenzie, of Kington, where he
applied himself diligently to the study of
law lor six years.

served in the I.yon-Mackt-nzie troubles
which agitated Canadian territory previ
ous to this, with the object of invading
Canada. They were defeated and Shoultz
was sentenced to death. It was in the de
fense of this man that young Mac-Donald
tirst won his legal spurs, which, as they
grew anil strengtueiu-d, m after years
earned for him the reputation of the great
est institutional lawyer in Canada a
reputation which, in the opinion of his
many admirers, holds goKl tu the present
Academic and Koyal Honors.
Mr. Mat Donald received the l.uiimaiy

yer claimed that Edison was nothing more
than a shrewd mechanic who utilized the
inventions of others. He likened Edison tt
a big school lwy who st in a corner eating
pie instead of studying. Every once in
while, lie said, Edison would iumn un and
. shout to the world: "I have made a great

was only announcing that he was ignorant
