A regular old time St. Louis levee row

o'clock, last nisht. First Mate O'Connor
was aboard the boat asleep and the handl

by the second mate a young fellow known
on the boat as . "Charley." who had just
received his papers as second mate hav

the beginning of the season. In the
freight house the mate known as

colored "rooster" named William Hawk

back that was standing near by

few seconds the air was full of bullets.

during which time Hawkins escaped to
Davenport, and Skip Day-s horses
took fright and ran to the Taylor house
barn, where they were caught.
The police arrived about 10 minutes
afterward, but the "rooster" was gone
and the mate was aboard tbe boat, so
that no arrests were made. Hawkins was
afterward captured in Davenport, and
will have his hearing before Magistrate
Wivill this evening.

Aid. Adamn' Explanation.
Rock Island, July 23 Editor Abgus
I notice in last nieht's Abgus that Mr.
Louderback is surprised at my remarks
in regard to the street cr company at
the council meeting last Monday evening.
Mr. Louderbacs gaye me a communica
tion addressed to the street and alley
committee, at my urgent request, but
said communication was not satisfactory
tome tbe way it has turned out. It
committed Mr. Louderbnck to nothing.
but stated that in 30, 60 or 90 days his
people would cive the matter of putting
diockb in along ineir lines their attention
1, as a member of the street and alley
committee, rrqa-sied Mr. Loudeiback
and Mr. Hunto.n to place blocks in their
line as they were lay leg it, and they told
nae tney woul 1. I also requested the
mayor to ten them we insisted on thir
putting in the blocks as they laid
their track and they pjomised him they
would. Last Monday I examined tbe
track and was unable to find any blocks,
but found that tbe track was all graded
wiin cinders and macadam, and no
provision made as far as I could see for
blocks. It was my opinion if the street
car company intended to place Diocss in
the tracks they would have done so when
they bad their tracks excavated, as it
would have been a great deal "aeier to
have done so.
I have no inclination in anyway to o p
pose the street car company, but we. as a
city council, have a right to expect Mr.
Louderback to comply with the ordi
nances under which the street car com
pany is runnine Mr. Louderback has
had a good job done on the Milan line;
I only wish he would follow it up and
place some of the rest of bis
lines in shape. Tbe Elm street line ia im
p issable from Seventh to Tenth avenue.
Mr. Louderback is woiking in the inter
est of the street car company. I am do
ing what I think is for the best interest
of the city, and I do not expect at all
times, and in all things to agree with the
street car syndicate its manager, attorney,
or employes. Tbe street car company
has done a great deal fo: Rack Island and
at tbe same time the city has shown them
a great many favors.
Lt Mr. Louderback comply with the
ordinances and laws of the city, and he
will find me willing and ready to favor
the street car syndicate in every way that
it is possible for me to do.
