The Pride of Ci ies in llelng Known
by Their Railroads.
It Amount to Kt methlnc If Only a
Street far l.iEe-L.okt Opportaa-tileK-noliae-x
It is always to the advantage of a city
to have a railroad named after it there is
no doubt of that. Rock Island realizes
this in the great distinction given it the
world over by tbe lailroad which bears its
name in title and in trade mark. Daven
port knows tbis; so does Moline. and as
a test of the high degree at which the lat
ter city places the benefits of a name as
carried by a railroad the action of its city
council at Monday night's session may be
cited. It will havt nothing to do with
even a street rai.ioad that does not
bear its name upon its cars ts a part
of the name of the c mpany . Last Mondav
night tbe railway company asked the
council's sanction ta its mortgaging iis
property. Fortunately for the company
the formalities of hiving municipil sanc
tion are not essentia to a business trans
action cf this kicd and if they were the
company might be diiven into the hands
of a receiver because it failed to have
Moline in its name, as the cmncil of that
city declined to app-ove any business the
company might ei gage in until it put
"Moline" on its cars as a part of its
The Argvs is not disposed to criticise
the position of Moline in desiring that its
name be kept in a many railroads as
possible even to sfeet railways. There
is eyerythfbg to be gained in haying a
railroad named after a city, but it looks
as if the council op there was trying to
act a little severe on a corporation that is
doing so much for tae city as tbe syndi
cate is, no matter what its name.
It is not at all rroaable that the syndi
cate itended to deliberately slight Mo
line in its till:, but f r convenience as in
fact as a matter of necessity it sought the
advantage of having its consolidated sys
tem under one. name. It being necessary
to telain the nsme. Davenport & Rock
Uland Railway comiany, as part of its
richts secured jnder government
ordinance, it was thought proper to
name the entire sysu m so and the cars
were so lettered to save complications in
interchanging en bi; days. etc. Now
b. tds have been issu d and other obliga
tions assumed und r tbe consolidated
name, and it is difficult to see how
chnuge can be made, although it is not
known what action tbe syndicate msy see
tbe wisdom of taking in the matter. At
any rate it should not be blamed
for any act it has con miltes without in
ttntion of working injury to anyone, for
it simply pursued the same course the C,
B. & Q. did when it gobbled up the Rock,
ford. Rock Island &. t. Louis, the C, M.
& St. P. when it purchased the Daven
port &;Northwe6tern, and more recently
the 3., C R. & N. wlen it absorbed the
Divenport, Iowa & Dakota, and yet
while both Rock Island and Davenport
have lost tbe advantage of having their
Dimes m the titles of the railroads,
neither has held grudges against the
roads coming into pos-efsion in faot, the
disposition has been r,.thtr to help them
to anv extent possible. and the psople not
on!y of Davenport, bu: many from Rock
Island and Moline wer.t out on an txcur
sion to Cedar Rapids and created a new
feeling of brotherly love with tbe city
which was to supersede Davenport in the
title of. the road whici had previously
been the latter city's p-ide.
However, this is only a matter of how
far a city realizes the benefit of having
a railway named after it, and Rock Island
diws not blame Moline for wanting all
ihe advantages in this direction it can
get. It only fails to 6;e why the kick
was not made years aco when the old
companies failed to retogniz either city
in the lettering on tht-ii cirs, but resorted
to a box car idea of merely using letters.

The funeral of Jobn Stubbe, tbe re
cluse whose death in hs but In Rural
township was chrocic ed in Monday's
Alters, occurred this af'.ernoon from the
rts dence of Capt. II. Kroeger, 2817
Seventh avenue, thn city. Henry
Stubbe, a brother of tht deceased, from
Benton county, Iowa wi;9 present. John
.Stubbe's age is. now placed at 73 years.
He was born at Teetensee, Holstein,
Germany. Capt. Kroe;er, from whose
residence tbe funeral oct urred, has had
an acquaintance with Stubbe extending
over a number of years.
Lewis Wilson, of Ruril, who has been
appointed custodian of the property, was
in the city today and turned over to Judge
Adams $107.50 in cash, a note for $29
from Andrew McMeekin. a note for 500
from Charles Dibbern, a certificate of da
posit for f 100 in Mitchel! Si Lynde's bank
and a revolver. These were all the per
sonal effects that could ba found, but it is
yet believed there are va uables buried on
the place where the recluse lived so many
It is now beliived froni what can be
learned and from tbe bru ses on the Oody,
that Stubbe lay on the fljorof his hut
from Tuesday until Si.turday evening
when he was found unconscious, from
which he never recovered.

Jesse A. Mils the unfortunate man
found near Cpiona Monday nignt in an
unconscious condition and brought to
Kock Island, died at the armory at 6:30
last night without regaining conscious
ness. Coroner Hawes was notified and
he summoned a jury composed of H. C.
Wivill, foreman, Robert Wall, James
Blaitdell. George Long, Phil Miller and
L. V. Eckhart. The jury viewed the
remains and adjourned the inquest until
8 o'clock this evening in order
to secure all the evidence possible
The body was taken in charge
by Undertaker Wheelan, who will
hold it until the wishes of the
dead man's relatives are known. None
of his relatives or friends appeared at
police headquarters yesterday until after
the poor ra tn's death. Mrs. M. A. Neu
haus, the lady whose letters to Miles
were spoken of in last night's ARGCS.and
also a sister-in-law of the dead man,
called at the station last eve
ning. They recognized the man, but
said he must have undergone a severe
illness, judgiDg from his appearance as
compared with that when they had last
seen him four years ago. Mrs. Xeuhaus
also stated that Miles was in the habit of
carrying a gold watch. He had none on
his person when found in the corn field
and he was also pwjniless, although he
was well clothed and neat in his dress.
Mrs. Neuhaus also stated tbaNtbe man
was unmarried when he left Davenport a
few years ago. She said he had a
brother now visiting in Sioux City al
though bis home was m Davenport, that
the parents of the deceased resided in
Rome, N. Y., and were well-to do people.
Tbey have been communicated with by
Nothing new ha9 yet been learned as
to what brought about the condition
the man was in when found. Dr.
Eyster holds to the theory which he
gave yesterday, that it was not heat pros
tration, but that he had been struck on
the head in such a manner as to produce
concussion of the brain.
There was a circus at Geneseo Tuesday,
and it was learned today that a number
of men were tiding from Carbon Cliff on
a freight train toward that city to attend
it early Monday evening, and that one of
the number on refusing to pay his fare
was thrown off by a brakeman while the
train was under way. This mav be an ex
planation of Miles' fate, although it will
take the coroner's inquiry to fully de

Charles V. Hodges has been secured to
take charge of tbe advertising and other
business pertaining to that department of
The Akgcs succeeding W. P. Qaayle,
who retired from the service of The
Argvs last evening, to assume the active
management ot bis own newspaper en
terprise. Mr. Hodges entered upon bis duties
this morning, and The Argcs be
speaks for him the same cordial
treatment on behalf of our business
men that bis always been shown The
Aiiiius. In commending him to its
friends, Tee Argus is not Hboring under
the disadvantage of introducing a stran
ger to the people of Rock Islind. Mr.
Hodges has resided ia Kick Island a
number of years, has become well ac
quainted with our busine.'s men, and
bav.ng a thorough knowledge of business
methods, is weil equipped for the im
portant work be has undertaken.
EJ Johnston and Lew Smith, of Dav
enport, came to Rock Island last night to
erjjy tbe Spencer square concert and
make themselves obnoxious. Officer
Schab,arrested Jubnslon for repeatedly
disobeying park regulations in eetting on
tbe grats, when Smith ran up and ad
vised Johnston to run. The latter started
to heed his friend's admonition when the
officer brought him to time with his club.
Johnston then attempted to draw a re
volver, but Schaab was too quick for him
and compelled him to "come along''
quietly. Officer Mu'queen came up in
time to take charge of Smith and the two
young men passed the night in the keep
ing of tbe city. This morning Magis
trate Wivill fined Johnston $25 and costs
for carrying concealed weapons, and
Smith $10 and costs for interfering with
an officer. Both paid.
John Schuliz was fined $3 and costs
for disorderly conduct.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
ami that is by constitution- remedies.
Deafness is causeJJby an irjltmed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach

vou have a rumbling sound "or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deifoess is the result, and unless ths im
rlammation can be takeji out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing wiil be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh, I ,
