The rapid transit introduced by tie
street railway syndicate on its electric sjs
tern is too lively for Davenport croakers
who are beginning to howl already. Th s
causes the Davenport Times to remark
that Davenport would be far better off if
it could have a dozen first-class funerals
and the greater part of the population
would rejoice to themselves over such an
event. The Times continues: "Our city
would take its place in the front ranks if
it were not for a few stubborn fogies who
seek to hold the city 10 years behind the
times. Some half a dozen of these over
grown grangers have called upon Mr
Louderbaek, of the syndicate, and remon
strated against the rapid runnrog of the
street cars. It is a pretty etate of affairs
if the masse3 of this city are to be dis
oommoded at the instance of a fttw ducks
wh seldom ride on a car, and who have
their horses and buggies, and can come
and co at their pleasure. Tke masses
object to this kind of dictation and do not
propose to be. hauled around by the no-e
or at a dog trot speed."
In Rock Island the old fogy has
dropped out cf sight entirely, and the
electric cars 6 peed on to their heart's con
tent. With the introduction of electric
carSf our people expected rapid transit;
they got it. and are now enioying and
profiting by it and want it to stay with

A MOST DASTARDLY CRIME.
Hon Mm Human Devils Treated a De
fenseless Girl at Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, June C. -Jennie Long,
aged IS years, of Olney, was at an earlj
hour yesterday fonnd in a dazed condition
at Fourth and York streets by Policeman
Heath. Failing to get a satisfactory story
from her, he took her to the statiou house
and phtoed her under the charge of the
matron. The girl was suffering great
mental agony, and as soon as she bad
been sufficiently q.uieted she told the
matron a horrible assault had leeu com
mitted upon her. She stated that on
Wednesday she came to the city in search
of employment, and while walking around
she encountered an unknown man. who
induced her to go to the house of David
Burns. 1,617 Xbrth Second street.
Her Desperate i-uggles Were Vain.
She had not been there long before one
cf the men called her into a rear room.
On going in the door was shut and locked
behind her, and she was made a prisoner.
Here she was kept f or aa hour with the
man, who made known to her in brutal
tones the object of her confinement. The
girl fonght desperately against the man's
advances, but her strength gave way to
the power of her oaptor. After the nn-t
brute had tortured the frail girl and con
quered her, he hastily left the room. One
by one the otlier men entered, until t he
poor eirl had been made the victim of the
nine brates who occupied the cmter room.
