A case of electrocution occurred in Mo-
line the otber evenicg. Fortunately in
this instance, the victim was not a human
being, but a kitten belonging to Mr. find
Mrs. August Sehuliz, who occupy the
second story of the building in whkh the
Carse & Co. shoe store is located. In the
small blind alley at the rear are placed
main wires of the People's L'gbt and
Fuel Mfg. cmpany, from which run
an a'lcr wires for the circuits of electric
lamps in different buildings adjacent.
Two of these wires extend to a skylight
in the roof of the one story portion of Mr.
That evening the kitten was on the tin
roof of this part of the building, which
was wet at the time, forming an excellent
conductor for electricity, and was playing
with some ends that were hanging down
from tbe wires. It had an end in its
mouth, when suddenly it rolled over and
a small volume of smoke was seen to is
sue from its mouth. It ia thought that
the electric current was 'turned on to the
wire of tbe circuit, at the power station,
ust at the lime the kitten hsd hold of tbe
This accidtct terved to reniinu Mr.
Scbultz of what might possibly happen
,o some of his children should ttiey plav
about on Ibis roof, and be has ordered the
wires removed. It should be a waruiun
to all parents to putri the plaything of
their cmidren and e tun tney d.u't tet

wires are as dangerous as firearms.

The Chicago Tribuuo of yeslerdav bad
the following Washington special relaW
ng to the war department's late action
in reference to the canal terminus, and
briefly stated in yesterday's Argus:
It has been determined to appoint a
board of engineer otScers to examine and

advantageous point for the western ter

The Cnicago News has a diepatch tn
the following effect:
Assistant Secretary of War Grant de
cided today, as a fins! m.ans for disp-.?
ing of the dispute ovet the location ui the
west end of tbe klcucepin canal, to ap
point a commission of engineers to vihu
the spot and investigate tbe complainu
which have been made by exCon
gressman Gest and bis followers
against Capt. Marshall. Col. O. M.
Poe will be .chairman of tbe commis
sion, while Capt. Marshall, of Cbieseo,
and another engineer, yet to be
named, will make up tbe board. Mr.
Grant was asked today if he did not ap
prehend complaint from ExHJongressman
Gest and bis followers over the appoint
merit of Capt. Marshall, and replied that
it bad always been the rule in making up
such commissions to choose the govern
ment engineer in the immediate vicinity
who was conversant witn tbe facts in the
case. Mr. Grant tnd he bad every con
fidence in Capt. Marshall and did nt
suppose for a minute that be wouid be
biased by his own past official relations
with the Hennepin canal work.

The Papaiar Fe.riav
The Moline Dispatch contains the fol
lowing which is highly complimentary to
that road, but It is hardly likely that tbe
Peoria will comply with the suggestions, as
once in that city, owing to the possibility
that all rights and privileges it might
seek would be withheld until it placed
the name, ''Moline" on the body of its
The lumber Uade over the Rock Island
& Peoria road from the three cities
amounts now, said Mr. Rockwell, tbe
local agent of tbat road at Rock Island,
to at least 10 cars per day or over 3,000
per year. Tbe Rock Island mills supply
the greater part of this, but Dimock,
Gould & Co. have no scull share oi
it. They are shipping an average of 40
cars per month now and will no doubt
continue this through the year List
year tbe shipments were about 1,800 cars,
and four yenrs sco they were not enough
to count. This lumber is largely distriU
uted to the roads leading out from Peo
ria and is an increase of the business of
tbe road and probably of the mills them,
The road is taking a good shire of tbe
business of Moline and by fair and gen
erous treatment of its customers has been
steadily increasing it. Its maoagtm.u:
has always been liberal and its shippers
stay by it.
It is unfortunate that tbe road does not
come to Moline. It would probably be
too costly for it to buy a right of way
from Rock Island Lere, but it would be
an advantage to it and a great advantage
to our shippers could it be done There
are towns so situated tbat they may have
too many roads, but Moline is not one of
them. Depending on its manufactures
almost entirely for its trade every toad
that is built into it is an advantage.
This road has, we understand, ordered
some 500 new freight care in anticipation
of a heavy increase of trade this fall on
account of tbe immense grain crop that
it expects to help haul.
It has taken some very hard knocks for
its treatment of this city, tbe late arraign
ment of it by the Western Passenger as
sociation for treating the Turners of this
city as others were treated being among
tbe number. These things have made our
rwwmlA Innk with favnr nn It thnnrrh thev
1 would naturally prefer a road tbat runs
into Uieci'; to one tbat does not.
