While the steamer Pittsburg, the flag
ship of the Diamond Jo lioe, was laying
at her landing at tbe foot of Serenteenth
street last night, awaiting the break of

ber of "roosters," beJongiig to the boat's
crew, took advantage of some sleeping
emigrants wboj were taking deck passage
north, and robbed them of their scanty
means by cutting out their pockets. One
of the emigrants was awatened by the
clumsy manner in which be was being
"touched," and upon arousing his corns
panions it was found that, be was not
alone, as a number of others had been
relieved in the same way.
An investigation was wanted by the
emigrants who had lest thair lucre, but
as the police could not go on board the
boat to get the thieves, nothing was done
and the boat left on her trij north in tbe

A letter was sent to the state auditor
at Spriccfield this afternoon by Messrs
McEairy & McEniry and J. T. Kenworthy,
attorneys for Mr. Beimon I for the ap
pointment of a receiver for the Mississip

At the January term of the circuit
court, M. Bermond, of ew York City,

Kenworthy. got judgment against the
Mississippi Valley insurance company for
$1,185 on a policy that he held against

The insurance company contends that

Important Beat Evtate Deal.
Msj H. C. Connelly, attorney for
Misses Naomi L- and Catharine DaTen
port, has sold to Charles R. Jones, of
Henry, 111., the two-fifths interest of the
ladies ia the property now xeupied by
Rock Island Lumber and Minufacturing
company. Tbe deed was filed for record
this forenoon. Mr. Jones paid $14. COO
in cash, assumed tbe paynent of tbe
taxes for 1881, all assessments for paying
or other purposes and all do'ver claimed
by any one. The sale is on a basis of
about $40,000 for the whole of the prop

purchase as an investment and expects to

TflK. HBOft DAY' SPEAKERS.
Editor Kappaix.rt f ladiaaaitolis,
. w. Vaieailne others to
ho Invited to Hollae.
The Tri-City Labor day committee held
another meeting in Moline Sunday eve
ning, at which a telegram was read from
Gov. Fifer, addressed to Messrs C. H.
Deere and Morris Rosen field.' who bad
written j asking him to come on
Labor day if possible. The telegram de
clared it impossible, as the governor and
his party expect to rem sin on the Gettys
burg battlefield two days, and then to go
to Washington. The Davenport and
Rock Island members of the committee
who were present at tbe meeting were:
M. W. Battles. Harry Bostock, A Erick
eon, Rock Island, and M. P. Kramer. F.
W. Boetbcher, F. T. Fish and F. C.
Tbe Davenport members seemed, well
pleased that Gov. Filer could not come,
and M. F. Kramer said that a pblitical
speaker was not wanted he thought
there were plenty of good men in tbe
labor ranks. He suggested Phil. Rap
paport, of Indianapolis.
There was a unanimous expression that
such speakers should be selected as would
tend to create a harmonious feeling on
the day to he celebrated. Secretary
Schafer, of Moline, was finally instructed
to telegraph Mr. Gompers to send on the
available man whom he had promised;
also to telegrspa for Phil. Rappaport,the
Indianapolis German editor, and to tele
Erapu Martin Fox, president of tbe
Molders' international union in regard to
securing Vice President Joseph F. Valen
tine of that body, who is expected to be
in this vicinity about that time. The
telegrams have been sent.
Mr. Kramer, ot Davenport, reported
that they expected all the labor organiza
tions from that city not only to bi in line
in the parade, but that several fljats of
design would be displayed. Mr. Bostock.
speaking for Rock Island, said that this
city would be likewise represented.

Recently an Illinois coal dealer wrote
Foster, the St. Joe weather prophet, with
regard to tbe indications for a cold wioter
in 1S91-92 and be received the following
answer, which was, of course, highly
gratifying to said coal dealer:

weather for tbe coming winter of 1891-9i.

will be the coldest and most stormy, with
tbe greatest snow storms especially deep
and driftinffsnows that have been exper
ienced for many years. Cold weather,
with blizzards and drifting snows, will
begin early in October in the elevated
regions of Colorado and tbe Dakotas and
very cold weather, earlier than is usual,
will cover the states and territories of tbe
northwest and the Missouri river valleys.
With the very deep snows that will tall

The Foproro Cruse.
The popcorn crazi, sprung on the peo
ple here something like three years ago,
continues unabated. It has not died
out as prophesied by the envious ice
cream venders and candy dealers. It
seems to be here to stay. Everybody
eats the stuff. Children cry for it, and
their fathers and mothers and big uncles
and brothers enjoy it almost as much, if
they don't make the same amount of fuss
about it. It is generally good and wor
thy tbe ado that is mide about it. Some
times the maker is careless and dopes it
with butter that keeps you awake all tbe
next night, and sometimes he greases the
paper bag and fixes it so tbat tbe customs
er greases himself and everybody else.but
there are flaws in every good thing; tbe
people know it, allow for it, kick a little
about it, perhaps, and go right on eating

A Hard Fall.
Luke Kiilion, an aged laborer living at
1216 Farnam street, was a sufferer from
painful acr'dnnt ynterdav. As he wa
pssing the Offl :e saloon on Brady street
a boy who was wetting down the side
walk and street, according to Mr. K., let
the hose fall so that the stream or water
struck the feet of the aged man. Either,
as he says, the force of the stream
knocked Mr. Killion'a feet from under
him, or in his attempt to get out of its
way be slipped, and fell upon his hip with
such force that the pain caused bim to
scream repeatedly. He was carried to
Dr. McCortney's office in such agony that
he begged the doctor to administer chlo
roform to him, . but as an examination
showed no bones broken, and nothing
but a seyere! bruise upon the old gentle
man's hip, the doctor declined to do so.
The sufferer, was made as easy as possi
ble and was taken home in the patrol
wagon. Tbe injury was a rather serious
one for a man of Mr. Kiilion s eee. about
70 years, and his demonstrations caused
a large crow to gather about the scene of
the accident at the time. Davenport

a model of convenience and neatness, and
is also commodious. The new wagon

There is more significance attached to
