THE AltGUS; WEDNESDAY. OGTOBEK 7, 1891
THE A1LMIGHTY DOLLAR
Is dominant in everything, but money is not all
that you have to think of when you are ordering
FURNITURE AND CARPETS.
Spend your money blindly and nothing but good
luck will give you your moneys' worth; spend it
intelligently and you will get your almighty dol
lar back again. Does not style count for some
thing, and durability for something more? If
you do not get both of these, what sort of an in
vestment are you making? Whether you or
they be big or little, you will do justice to your
dollar and justice to your judgment. If you want
a Bed Room Suit or an Ingrain or a Brussells
Carpet, Chenille Draperies, Curtains or Shades,
a Cook or Heating Stove, a Side Board, Ward
Robe, Extension or Parlor Table, a Parlor Suit,
Lounge or Couch, we can fit you out in any de
sired style or price, and give you credit at lowest
cash prices. "

At Coroner Hawea inquest ovtr the re
mains of Byard L Steckman whose death
in a clay or (and bank at the National
Clay company's plant at Sears, was
related in last night's Argus, N. R
Corothers testified that be bad last teen
Sleckman alive at 10 o'clock yesterday
morning when he was standing on the
right hand side of the sand wagon, which
together with the witness be was loading
Corothers thought toe back dangerous,
and Sleckman bad taken the lines and
backed the team in, and at tlie time of the
accident the latter was standing directly
under the bank, while Corothers was
few feet away. Tbe first intimation tbey
bad of imminent danger was when the
bank caved slightly, covering Sleckman,
and a small pile falling on Corothers, and
before the latter Cvuld respond to
Steckman's call for assistance a larger
pile ftll, covering him to a depth
of about three feet. Corothers gave
the alarm,' and a parly of men
went to work to dig him out, but
it was probably a half an
hour before ' bis body . was reached.
Shortly after its recovery Dr.
Wiggins arrived, andiafter an examination
said that Steckman was dead. Tbebcdy
was then taken to tbe warehouse of the
National Clay company.
Charles L. Householder eid that he
was working in tbe clay pit near by wben
Corothers came to tbe top of the bank and
told them that Mr. Sieckman was buried
in tbe sand pit, and tbe ' men with him
proceeded there with shovels and were
shown tbe spot, but it was 15 or 20 min
utes before any portion of the body be
came visible, and they then dug oat tbe
legs and pulled tbe body out
of the hole.
Tbe jury which was composed of El.
bert Mead, foreman, A R. Bron, C.J.
Gould, William Kale. S. R. Razon and
G. A. Smitb, returned tbe following verdict:
We, the jiiry, do find that be cime to
his death by bein' smothered bv a bank
of sand falling on him at the National
Clay company's yards on Oct 6, 1891, no
blame being attached to anyone.

Robert Bennett's tariff speech that he

said putting a duty or tariff upon goods

that lowering the duty or placing any
manufactured article upon tbe free list
would not lower the price. How then
did it happen that placing sugar upon
the free list gave us 20 pounds of granu
lated for one dollar, instead of 14? And
would not repltcing the duty put it
back to the old price? Did Robert
think he was talking to f aimers who

Listen to the. locomotive whistle and
get tbe weather forecasts. That will be
tbe next departure made by the weatber
bureau. It will be a novel system to say
the least. Already the principal railroads
of the country have adopted tbe plan of
disseminating predictions by displaying
signal fl igc on trains, and the bureau
hopes to extend this system by having
locomotives give tbe signals by means of
their whistles. Prof. Harrington, the
chief of the weather bureau, has arranged
a system of whistle combinations by means
of which persons living at a distance from
the railroads can receive the forecasts.
By repeating each combination a few
time, with an interval of 10 seconds be
tween, possibilities of error in reading the
forecasts will be avoided, such as may
arise from variable winds or failure to
hear tbe warning signal.

overpowered, tbe weary to sleep and tbe

reader knows that this occurred before
the great discovery of Salvation Oil.
- MAY NOT GO TO MOLINE.
The FMtal Telea-reph. ajaaaaaay Sat

That City With Its Preseat Coadl
At tbe last meeting of the Moline coun
cil Mayor Wessel said be bad received a
letter from Mr. Baker, superintendent of
the Postal Telegraph company, saying
that unless the clause of tbe ordinance
compelling the company to keep its office
open until midnight is modified, the com'
pany will not build to Moline, but will
seek for another route to reach Rock Isl
and. Tbe letter states also that tbe
ordinances passed in Rock Island and
Davenport contain no conditions as to
tbe time for keeping its office open.
Alderman McBeth said it appears
strange that the gentlemen should have
seemed satisfied only two weeks ago, and
now want a concession. It appeared like
tbe commencement of tbe old trouble with
the street railway syndicate.
Aid. Cbadwick said the city should res
ceive something in return for concessions
granted, in the use of the ' bridge and
streets. Tbe only way of doing so is
through the accommodation of its citi
zens. We might be able to struggle
along as we havj been doing, without a
night office, for a few years lorger, but
tbe franchise runs for 25 years. He
deemed it the duty of the council to look
ahead to tbe future. The council re
fused to modify the clause.
Tbe Dispatch adds:
It is well known to others, if not to
members of the council, tbat the represen
tatives of the compan ; objected to this
clause in the first instance, and expressed
the opinion that it woul I be likely to de
feat the building of the line to Moline. It
seems to us, in this case as we already
have a night office here run bv the West
ern Union tbeconncil could have de
pended on competition to force the Pos
tal Telegraph people to have rendered the
very best service possible, as many hours
of the 24 as possible. It will be a sorry
commentary on the wisdom of our city
fathers in this mttter should tbe new line
leave Moline out. as it seems likely to do
thus cheating us out of tbe one of thing
most wanted l ist now in older to insure
tbe improvement of our telegraph service.
Tbat one thing is competition with the
Ves ern Union.
