Bat Xot Mrrion.iy Injorrd.
A peculiar accident occurred cn the
Rock Island & Milan road just this aide
of the centre station eirly this morning,
and it was due emirelv, as Supt. Huntoon
expressed it, "to the men setting their
own trap and then deliberately running
into it." The construction train, with
the tower like structure on the front one
of three cars, had been at work on the
trolley wire and pullel bf old motor No.
3 was making for the switch at the centre
station to let ihe regular morning train
from Milan pass. A. Cushman wa9 engi
neer, and on the train were Herb East
man, J. Hastings, M. Webb an! J. E.
Calhoun. Eastman and Hastings were
riding on the elevated struc
ture, and Webb at.d Calhoun were
on the car. A short distance
this side of the switch, the high structure
struck a cross wire supporting the trolley
wire and over went th-i whole contrivance,
cars men and all. All three cars left the
track and went tumb iogdown the slight
incline at the side. Two of the men were
thrown 30 feet. AU were badly bruised,
Hastings and Webb having sustained
particularly painful injuries, and are now
confined to their beds though no bones
are broken, and it is not supposed they
have been internally injured.
All the men, however, are pretty sore
and it is safe to assume will use more care
hereafter in running under their own

J. N. Hardy, the portrait artist, had a
rather exciting experience the other
night with two drunken strangers He
was on a car going 'o Moline from R ck
Island, and one of he gang came and
squatted down almost on his lap Mr.
Hardy, who is a rampant prohibitionist,
objected to the proceeding and especially
to the fellow's distil ery breath, and the
latter got it in bis head that the gitng
ought to do Artist Hardy up. The latter
overheard tbem talking after tbey went
back on the trailer. So he thought be
would fool them by staying on the car
and going up to Nineteenth street.
and make a tour around and avoid
them. But juit as he was
going down Seventh avenue he
was confronted by a bully about six
feet tall, who demanded if he was the
feller who "inBulted" the man on the car.
Mr. Hardy made a civil reply, whereupon
the tough adyanced toward bim. The
artist retreated rathi r than have a fuss.
The bully then howled for "Charley" to
"head him off," and as they were about to
close in on him Mr. Hardy turned in at
the residence of Magistrate Earns, rang
and was admitted, his pursuers following
Lim to the very door.

The matter of p-operlv improving! the

The ordinance author z:ng the Mac say

construct a line into Rock Island was
adopted by unanimous vote,
Tbe ordinance permitting the Daven
port & Rock Island street railway com-
my to ahtndon iis Ninth street line
south of Fourth avenue was brought up
by City Clerk Koehler again, and Aid.
Kennedy moved its adoption, and it
passed. This action was of the nature
f a surprise all around and as much so
to the streetcar compiny and its friends
in and out of the council as anvone.
The maiorit? of the al.l-rmpn
had arrived al the conclusion, however.
that it was an imposition on the company
to compd it to retain a non-paving line
and the reponsibi!it v of the move is
wholly with one or two aldermen who are
accountable for the matter having been
introduced at this time. It was quite a
novelty to witness AH. Huesing' vote on
the side of the tiffi-mtive.

Hon Wiliinm Payne, having erected a
large commodious new barn, he gave the
cit zeno of this vifin ty an opportunity to
use it for tbe purpone of "tipping the
light fantastic toe" on Friday evening
la6t. Four se's were upon the floor a t
one time, anrl 35 numbers were taken out.
The Livingstone string band of Moline
was engaged for the occasion. We are
happy to stile that the lines were no .
dran S3 rigid as tiiey were when the
barn ws raised. Prohibitionists were
invited; wheier any democrats received
a bid we cannot siy.
President Harrison may be a very wise,
intelligent, logical man and an astute
lawyer; but if he is, judging by the
speeches lie hns been making of late, he
has a poor way of showing it. He is re
norted as si v inn in his speech at Procter,
Vermont, "Things may be too cheap
They are too cheup when the man who
produces tbem on ihe farm, or the man
or wom in who produces them in the fac
tory, does not get out of them living
wages, with a margin for old age and h
dowry fortne children ho nreto follow."
Just so, Bi nnj; hut if lVgisUtion comes
to the relief of the coat maker, ia order
that ih-coa may not be sold too cheap,
will you oleafe inform us why legislation
should not come to ihe relief of the man
who rnides farm produce? Shouldn't
since for 'he gi S" be siuce for the gan
dtr? Isn't it a poor rule that won't work
both if? Is making a coat dear by
legislation and llwing competition to
bring down the price of farm products
tbe equal righia which are guaranteed
by the constitution of the United States?

The Moiine Di.-pnt 'h referring to Dav
enport's river carnival Tuesday night,
After the brilliant river parade was
over, there was an exasperating delay,
wai'ing for the fireworks. These were
fine, indeed, but not so conspicuous or so
grand as la-t year It was noticeable that
Davenport while wt looming Rork Isl
and's illumination in honor of ihe event
wanted it und'-rst.oorl that it was a strictly
Davenport affair. Neptune's tripod didn't
point at R"( k Island this time any more
than cou'd h- he'pi-d. The set pieces of
fireworks, insiead of being from a barge
well out in 'hi- river, as last year, were yery
close totleD ven port shore, and screened
from R ck Isl-.nd vi-w by steamboats
This closeness to ihe Iowa shore must have
been a disappointment to many who were
viewing the carniv .1 from the Davenport
bluffs, too, as well as to thousands of peos

Cjarles Jenks, Moliie's erstwbi'e
sprinter, now shines forth as an invinci
ble boxer and bard hitter, and he is anx
ious to meet any local pugilist who may
claim the championship of the locality.
To show that be means what he says Jenks
today put up a $1 forfeit with The Argus
to meet William Gibson in a 5 25 match for
points at Harper's theatre some time next
month. Jenks stated today that nothing
would please him better than to met Billy
Meyers or Con. Doyle in ate6t of the manly
Qoeer Thing, from a Well.
A striking confirmation of the theory of
the source of supply of artesian waters has
been observed at Tours, France, where the
water, spouting with great velocity from a
well 110 meters in depth, brings up fresh
water shell and seeds in such a state of
preservation as to show that they could not
have been more thun three or four months
on their voyage. Some of the wells of the
Wady Rir have also ejected fresh water
mollusks, fish and crabs, still livio-r, which
must, therefore, have made a still more

Machines for opening and cleaning cot
ton have been improved by an automatic
feeding apparatus, applied to the feed
apron, and by means of which one man
can tend two machines when being fed
with raw or bail cotton easier than he
could heretofore tend oue. A large amount
of seeds and leaf is extracted by this device.
Dr. Johnson disliked lace; and shortly
after his epoch, although owing to no in
fluence of his, but rather to the tyranny
of fashion, lace almost ceased to be worn
or valued in England; till in course of
time laces of great value were so slightly
esteemed that they were considered little
better than so much valueless rubbish.
