Representative Who Hat F.irnped
Troable Id the Xirk f 11m .
The news that the American Wheel
Co.'s immense properties in the several
states in which it has been carrying on its
operations are in the hans of receivers,
might grate much more harshly on the
ears of Representative George w. Vinton
than it does, sajs the Dispatch.
When George W. was interested in the
Bufflngton Wheel Works at Burlington,
and after thej had been rebuilt after the
fire, his fellow stockholders made up
their minds to a combiue with the Amer
ican Wheel Co., traosf rrinsf their stock
for stock in that institution. Bat Mr. Vin
ton wasn't anxious. When urged not to
stand in the way of the combination, he
said. Gentlemen ou cn have my stock
for cash, but not for American Wheel
Co. stock The Ainericin Wheel
Co. at this time was turning out 90
per cent of the whee's used in the coun
try, and was having pretty muoU its own
way. Indeed there' had liern aly intima
tions tut if the Burlington people didn't
come in, prices would be puL down so
low as to frezs them in; on the con
trary, if they di, prices would up,
and all hands could double their money.
Mr. Vinton held out, however, acd got
cash for bis stock. The oihers probably
wish tbey had done tkestme thing.
Prices did go up. And this is one of
the tirouatUaccs which has operated to
give Moline the fine new industry now
about to be established there the Mutual
Wheel Co., composed of members of
elevt-n different manufacturing concerns
using wheels who propose to make
wheels for themselves, and thus be n:
longer at the mercy of a concern w hich
was getting so b e that it could rnanipu
lute prices to si.it itself.
Possibly the American will cjme out of
the present trouble in good shape pos
sibly not. That is a matter for the future
to determine. The assets of something
over 4.000 000. are said to more than
double the liabilities.

getting out of cftl:e, and is now able to
tell the truth, Ii a comnunication to a
newspaper editor in reference to prohibi
tion in Kansas an 1 what be said three
years ago in the Forum and is no gay.
ing. he states:
"In the last few years, however, a re
markable and extraordinary change has
occurred and the real question is not
whether my statements are consistent,
but whether, being at variance, both are
true. To present the issue clearly, I
First That there is no town of im
portance in Kansas where beer, whisky
and other intoxicating drinks cannbt be
had and are not sold as a beverage. There
may be some hamlets and villages where
this is not true, but not many even there.
Second That in the principal cities of
the state the dramshop trail!: is recoe
n zed and practically licensed by the im
position of monthly fines which are reg
ularly applied to the payment of the ex
penses of the municipal government.
Third That tbe brewery which the
supreme court of the United States held
the state bad the power to suppress and
destroy has been and now is in constant,
uninterrupted and profitable operation.
Fourth That these facts are known to
the state officials, to the boards of police
commissioners appointed by tbe gover
nor upon oath to enforce the prohibitory
law, and to the people generally.
These observations, the Keokuk
Constitution-Democrat remarks, are
not prompted by boetility to
prohibition nor by preference for
any other plan of repressing the enor
mous evils inflicted upon society by the
abuse of intoxicating drinks. Prohibi
tion may be the best method of dealing
with tbe appalling problem, but the
friends of temperance have nothing to
gain by interference, hypocrisy and mis
representations and nothing to lose by
fearless, candid and truthful discussion."
A tVomau's Wrath.
The Moline Dispatch tells the follow-,
iog story of a woman's wrath and what
came of it:
Tbe flat-boat, above the saw mill, oc
cupied by the notorious pair, Joe Stafford
and his wife, was the scene of another
brawl Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Stafford,
who bad just served out a sentence in tbe
county jail, was brought home bv her
bUBband about 4 o'clock. When they ar
rived at the boat Mary discover, d that
Emma Flood, better known as "Drunken
Emma," had taken up quarters in the
boat during ber absence. Mary's jeal
ousy was at once aroused, and sbe com
menced a war of words with her hus
band, of whose affections she believed
she was being robbed . Blows soon took
the place of words, but this tim9 the
muscular Mary got the worst of it, for
Joe was master of tbe situation, for he
pounded his wife in a shocking manner,
as a result of which she is wearing some
yery ugly-looking scars upon her fore
Tbe police were summoned, but by the
time they arrived Joe had decamped.
After a two-hours' chase through the
wood-yards, Stafford was captured about
6 o'clock by Officers Kearney and Gels
berger, and was soon placed behind tbe
bars of the city prison. They are a pair
that this community could very well get
along without. ,
Joe Stafford was today Hoed $100 and
costs for assault- and -battery-, by Msgis
irate Kerns, and ia default of , payment
was sent to tbe county jail.
Horse Th er Caught.
At 10:30 tbe other morning a stranger

out on the hunt for him. Ho found that
the man bad stopped at the Parisee gar
den, west of the city, and there bad at
tempted to exchange tbe whip and dus

of whisky. The deal wouldn't go there,
however. The man whs fiaally traced to
Buffalo. There the rig was found at
Schwanke's livery stable, where the man
had mane an attempt to sell
it. Emil found that tbe man hud been
seen leaving Buffalo along the railroad
track, and be walked out a ways and

South Uook Island, Aug. 24 Editor
Ahgus: I live on my place f omh of Kock
Island and for the last four weeks I have
been treat); annoyed by boys and so
called hunters. Boys cume out with their
small riflta and shoot at anything and
everything, snd stray balls flying around
everywhere make it dangerous for me and
my neighbors to work in the field. So
called huutets come out and shoot with a
shot gun and tbe shot flies around land
ing on my tent and in me ya-d, and it is
a miracle to me that nobody
baa been hurt. Some phot dropped on
a lady's parasol and she was not hurt
only because it came from too great a
distance. Cm such a nuisance not be
stopped? We have a game law in this
state, but it seems tbere is no way to en
Now another instance of reckless shoot
ire; n jnung rf.cal, orim minted by an
other iudivitua! Oi the name kind, wbo
acts as the oihers game-keeper, was out
here shooting at turtle dovts. He missed
tbe doves, but bit Mr. Noak wbo was
working in bis garden. Tne shot went
not tnrouah the sKin. but bun Mr. Xoak
considerably. He ran o ut aod asked the
two men their nsms; they refused to
give thfm.iibd offered to knock him dojvn.
I ask again, is that right? Ought we
not to be protected against such ruffians
and transgressors of the law? Nobody
has any right to shoot turtle doves and
robbins ami there ongfct o he some con
trol. Outside of that there is a law for
bidding anyone to shoot game in another's
enclosure, without a special permit so to
do. George F. Wagser.
