ROCK ISLAND'S CHANGES,
George I'. Downes Hardly Knows
Asid He llad Xt Been Away Tory
Either Obnrrvailonn After
Two Yean.' Absence.
"Why, I d haraly know Rock Island"
eiclaimed 3eorge F. Downes, the con
tractor this morning, "and I have not been
away so very lone, either. But in that
time I hav; visited a good many places,
and ' I haven't seen any I like as
well as Rock Island. Spencer
square is particularly attractive to
the stranger. Now I've traveled
from Rictmocd to Denver and I've
never seen tinythicg to compare with it in
the besutif yicg effects of its ornaanents or
its artistic r.rrangement. Mr. Jackson and
all who have contributed to making it
what it is d serve great credit. Then there
isyourpav:ng. I am gltd to see that Rock
Island is going into the paving business
in earnest. You can't have too much of
it. The revolution in the streetcar sys
tern is another noticeable thing and it
speaks to tte credit of the company and to
Rock Islan 1. I tell you itlooks as if new
blood had been infused into Rock Island,
and the city is going ahead with a whoop
and nobody is better pleased to see the
old town g t there than I."
Mr. Dowaes, who thus speaks wift
such gratification of Rock Island's ad
vancement, it seems, made some warm
friends while in the south and west.
where he h s been for two years, and he
carries an evidence of this in the shape of
a handsome walking stick which was cut
near J titers an 8 tomb at Monticeilo by
Thomas N. Chaddock, a man aged 93,
who, when a boy. was an errand boy to
the father c f the Declaration of lode
pendence.a id who also carved the stick for
Mr. Downea. The cane is of dogwood
and is a beautiful piece of workmanship.

Frank Cabalka is the ungodly name of
an ungodly tailor who has an ungodly
way or putting in his time during the
cnu.y seasoa in tbe police station, not
from force of circumstances, but from
force of habit. He appears to have a
fascination for this mode of comfort at the
city's expenie. Last night Cabalka, or
whatever hi name is, applied at Hotel
Miller for lodgiog. The quardian of pub
lie morals d d not propose to lodge Mr.
Cabalka this winter and he told him so,
whereupon the latter bethought himself
of some scheme to force himself upon the
city, and to carry out such
an end he sought the big
gest rock be could find, which with
all his might and main he hurled
through one of the immense plate glass
windows of J.B. Zimmer's merchant tail
oring establishment at Second avenue
and Nineteeith street, and then going to
police headquarters he confessed having
shattered the pane, and said he did it
with a view of compelling the city to
He was locked up and will probably
get all he wt nts before he is through.
The damage he caused amounts to be
tween f 80 a-.d $100, and Chief Miller has
been looking up the statutes and is of the
opinion that Cabalka can just as well as
not be sent 1 3 the penitentiary for his
trick, which is plainly a case of malicious
mischief. Le ought to have the full exs
tent of the ltw, which is 10 years.
The Fatllac Stream.
. The Quincy Herald wails in this man
ner about lhi present condition of affairs
on the river: "Things are becoming so
nearly dry in the way of a river at Keo
kuk that where once the maj estic river
bore on its bosom great steamers and
barges there are today only pools of wat
er surrounded by hills of sand. As far as
Keokak is concerned, the glory of the
great river is past it is no greater than
in former tin.es were many of its tribu
tary 6t reams. The city of Quincy. with
its draught of less than three feet, can
not get up to the Gate City 'any more
the 'gate' being closed and barred
against havic ation. Which, the same, is
tough on the Gate City, tougher on the
name of the liver, and toughest on the
owners of the boats. The Diamond Jo
company, finding that it cost very much
less to leave their boats at the bank than
to try to run them, have called off the
Libbie Conger and Sidney."
The idea of wading the Mississippi
the great Fattier of Waters at any point
south of St. Paul, seems almost incred
ible, not to sjak of the possibility of
such a thing oelow the Des Moines rap
ids, sounds alurd, and yet at any time
during the lai t three weeks a man could
have easily fcrded the stream at a point
within a cour. le of miles of the Warsaw
levee. Wartaw Bulletin.

PASTOK GUE'S RECEPTION.
The Former Boek l.land Preacher
Heartily Welcome 10 HI. JSew
Home at Portland.
The Portland (Ore.) Evening Telegram
of Oct. 3 contains the following:
On last Tuesday evening the members
and consreeation of Grace M. E. church
tendered to the Rev. G W. Gue, their
new pastor, and bis family, a reception
in the church parlors. A large number
attended, not only of the congregation at
Grate, but from ever congregation in the
cityaawcil. On the platform were Rev.
M. C. Wire, presiding elder; Rev. D. N.
Mclnturff, of St Paul's church; Rev. J.
W. Busbong, of Centenary church; Rjv.
Thomas Colley, of Clarke M. E. church;
and Prof. Edwards, of the chair of Eng
lish laceuase and li
university. Mr. Wire delivered an ad
dress of welcome on behalf of the Meth-.
odist ministry of Portland, and J. K. Gill
welcomed the pastor on behalf of the offl
cial boiird and members of Grace church.
Mr. Gue responded in a happy
and feeling manner appropriate to
the occasion. He spoke of the pleasure
he experienced in coming among Metho
dist people here, and said that tie already
felt s much at home here as in his East
ern charge, which he bad just left. He
thanked the people for the warm recep
tion which they had tendered him ever
since bis arrival in the city, and said it
was character stic of the welcome which
Methodists usually extended to their pas
tors everywhere. Addresses were also
made by each of the gentlemen on the
platform, as well as by Rev. Mr. Hayes,
of the Presbyterian church, who has
charge of the Seamen's Bothel of this
city. After the addresses, all present
arose and sang "Blessed Be the Tie
1 oat Binds," after which a good so
cial time was bad by all. and an oppor
tunity given to become personal
ly acquaintea with the new pas
tor. The young people provided re
tresnments, and were present in large
oumoers. a pieasing feature of the occa
sion was a colored design drawn upon
the blackboard, suspended back of the
platform, with the word "Welcome"diag-
onany across trie center, surrouned by
ferns and flowers, with the words "To
Oregon" above and "To Grsce Church"
below, with a neat monogr.tm composed
01 tne initials of the new pastott , A
most enjoyable social time was had hy all
who attended, and the occaaiou was pi
ticularly delightful to the m mbers and
triends of the church, in view of the fact
that they have, for some time past, been
deprived of the services of a regular pas
tor, through the inability of their former
pastor, Dr. Houghton, to occupy the pul
pit, by reason of illness. Letters were
read from Rrv. Mr. Ladner, Dr. C. C
Stratton and Dr. Ross C. Hooshton and
wife, sharing tha welcome and regretting
kueir luauimy to attena.
Lieut. Mrhwatka's Return From Alas
A dispatch from Victoria. B. C. under
date of Oct. 8, contains the following
relative to Lieut. Schwatka, of this city,
the famous Arctic explorer's recent trip to
Lieutenant Schwatka has just returned
from Alaska and in the account of his
trip says: "We opened about 500 or 600
miles of totally unknown country and, of
course, a good deal on each side. We
have secured a thorough map, which was
taken by Dr. Hayes, of the geological sur
vey at Washington. A large -collection
of botanical specimens was made and
photographs taken of everything of in
terest. The most important feature of
the whole trip was the successful breaking
through ot the St. Elias ranges, a feat
never before accomplished by man. All
the party are well. The journey was
hazardous in the extreme and full of
great danger at times."
