becoming interested a bet of $10 as
made tnat the older of the two could

and accordingly they repaired to the

former still maintains that the boys were
trying to "guy" him.
A party of excursionists on the little
steamer Myrtle were compelled to take an
unexpected walk Sunday. They wiTe
enjoyins a pleasuie trip from Black
Hawk to the Moline bridge and up Rock
river. When opposite the Carr farm, the
boat ran dgainst a rock, and a hole was
made in the hull. Water poured in
rapidly and the pleasure seekers made for
dry land in small boats that happened to
be near. From their landing place sone
of the party walked to Black Hawk ai d
came home by the cars, and others can.e
by teams. Several Moline people we e

this city. The parlors were elaboratel;?
decorated with a profusion of beautiful
flowers, and eight numbers were rendered
by Prof. Griffith, simng them beint:
"Why Do the Nations Rage." and "The
Trumpet Shall SouBd." Mr. Head alsc
rendered a number of selections in a very
pleasing manner, which was followed by
dainty refreshments being served, and
the evening was one of unalloyed pleas

The Union states that Manager Louder
back has some preliminaries to attend to
before either change he seeks in the
matter of right of way can be secured at
the hands of the council, that certain
notice must be given in the papers before
seeking the rights, and that if be don't;
injunctions are likely ti be sought. It is
not necessary to give notice of a desire o
abandoning portions of a track, but it is
of course, before seeking new rights, and
this Mr. Louderback probably knows.

The steady decrease of the freight bus
iness and increase of passenger tra35c is
a noticeable feature of the packet service
at this particular season, says the Bur
lington G-Zstte. Much has been siid in
the p-t aout tl,e possibilities of fan'
passtLu'r boats on tne upper Mississippi
river, but tne fact is that the boats at
present in the service are fast enough ;f
they could be rid of the freight. Any of
the four boats Pittsburg, Mary Morton,
Sidney and St. Paul, now in the Diamotd
Jo line, can easily make the round trip
from St.Paul to St.Lou:3 m nine days if not
interfeed with by freight handling. The

shrunk in U-n'h since tha issuance of the
old distance card, which cave the interval
between Burlington and St. Louis as 2 j3
miles, while the new crJ uiakis it but
249 miles. Rivermjn are of the opinion
that the old cards were nearer correct.
Of the Diamond Jo boats now on the
upper river, the Pittsburg is the fastest
in deep water, still the Pittsburg can
make the shallower crossing owing to her
stern wheel. The liae boats are all fast
enough to make 10 miles an hour up
stream and from IS to 20 miles down
stream without straining.

Moeneheustein aiul Basle railway Sunday
were ou their way to attend, was aban
doned as souu as news, of tlie accident
reached that place. Hundreds of the vil
lagers hurried to assist in rwcuins the
victims. The bridge through which the
train was precipitated w-as an iron skele
ton structure, considered entirely safe.
The collapse is ascribed to the train hav
ing left the rails, thereby throwing its en
tire weight on one side of the bridge. An
investigation will be immediately ordered.

The Itarcarat C'ae in Parliament.
The )tccar:it case came up in Parliament
yesterday, upon n fittest inn propounded by
the Ita lical-. who were delighted to have
a.:iitig nt Alljert Ijdward. The govern
ment was j r.'pared. however, anil the I.iii-
er ils wen.' ready to support any reasona
ble explanation, and not a particle in sym
pathy with Iiadical attacks on the heir ap-pax-ut.
Secretary for War Ptauhoiie re
plied to the fj-.iestion, which iutim.-ite.l a
vii lation of the army regulat'tms by the
pr nce in agreeing to hush up the matter.
Ht said: '"The urmy regulations in ques
tioii had undottbteilly never leen specially
lin ught to the notice of the Prince of
W;des, but when they had been, aud look
ins back at all the circumstances of the
case, the Prince of Wales saw Lis error of
jurtrment in not requiring Sir William
Go -don Cmntuitig to make an immediate
report to his commanding officer.
I'ut Yourself iu Hi l'lare.
Tu his view I concur, but I should like
to t xpress my personal opinion that, had
imj one else suddenly Lea. i that a friend
ho had greatly ilistinguished himself in
the service had been accused of such a i
offense, he would certainly hesitate before
at once adopting a course that would
britig an immediate and irretrievable
blight ou his whole future." Continuing,
Stanhojje said that he was authorized by
the Priuee of Wales to say that he (the
pritcemow saw the emr of judgment -I.ietit.
Invert, another witness of tl-e
cheating, had written to the commanding
officer expressing regret that he had not
acte 1 according to military regulations.
The government, therefore, would take no
further action in the matter.
Ileal Status of the Case.
Tl e real status of the case is that when
Gordon dimming was charged with cheat
ing i:t cards it was his duty to demand an
investigation by the military authorities.
He siiould not have waited for some one to
fciufi'rm" on him. This is the position of
I lie Daily 2ew-s, and was the position
taken by Stanhope in his remarks. It
Cumming was innocent, it is certain that
such action was best for him, and even if
guilty it would leave him in no worse sit
uation than a suit for slander.
There's Much Hysteria Abroad.
The statement made or hinted at by
some hysterical journals that the succes
sion of the Prince of Wales to the ,hrone
is endangered by the scandal may safelv
be classed as political uouseuse. If the
prince survives his royal mother Iris right
to the throne is incontestible. No Eng
lish statesman would dream of disputing
it. No party, certainly none that was
strong enough to have a position to put
at hazard, would run the risk of raising a
j.uest iou fraught- with such grave possi
bilities of disturbance socially aud finlaui
cially as well as politically. "The Tranbv
Croft affair is too trivial aud ephemeral
an issue to count for anything in u reset
tling the royal succession. The Mordaunt
divorce case was vastly more seriou, yet
within a twelve-month of that damaging
scandal the prince had fully recovered his
